To Orwell Today,

I was fascinated by your piece in the american nationalist union website. What it fails to say is what is to me the most significant thing of all --- just who are the shareholders of the Fed, and how much does each own? Is just any one able to buy shares in it? Could you or I?

Britain nationalized the Bank of England just after WW2. Most people had thought it was a nationally-owned institution prior to that. Since then members of parliament have been prohibited from asking questions about it. That shows the place where sovereignty lies-- with the money, not in the elected parliament. As long as things like this persist, we cannot pretend superiority to Saudi Arabia or China on democratic grounds. Could there be organized a populist boycott of companies where the Fed owners have an interest? If it were widely publicised something might be changed.

Interestingly, in May 1945 when the allied armies cornered the remnant government of Germany up near the Baltic, a British general put to the German negotiators across the table the most important thing in the minds of the British government--would Germany agree to stop issuing money by governmental decree and restore this monopoly to privately-owned banks? When the Germans agreed, we agreed to stop shooting them.

Greetings Ross,

You don't mention what "piece" you're referring to that you saw linked off a website you mention. On my website I've a few articles on the Federal Reserve, the most recent one being LINCOLN, KENNEDY & MONEY.

You seem to assume I'm an expert on the Federal Reserve the way you ask all those questions about shareholders etc, and how you say I failed to include such information in my article.

However, I am not very knowledgeable about the intricacies of the Federal Reserve System but I would venture to say that if shares could be bought by the public they would probably be very "blue chippy" and not what mere proles could afford.

My opinion of the Federal Reserve is that it reverses Robin Hood's credo of "stealing from the rich to give to the poor" and steals from the poor to give to the rich. The poor are the citizens of the United States and the theft involves the resources of their country.

All the best,
Jackie Jura
