    I haven't read the book. I copied that quote from the wikipedia article to which you linked.
    I'm sure this author that you happen to have read got it right where every other historian is wrong, though.
    Of course he was likely far from the saint that second-graders hear about in their stories. Regardless, if more space in an article a supporter linked is given over to controversies than about the book itself, it certainly doesn't inspire me with confidence as to the veracity of the work.

    Dude, anything you say bad about Lincoln is going to incite controversy.

    Eh? Rothschild is where the idea of central banking comes from. Hamilton got the idea from somewhere.

    It's seems ironic to me that you of all people who abhors private property would suddenly revert to kookism and conspiracy theories when the name Rothschild comes up. Rothschild owns more property and personal wealth than any other family on the planet. It's no wonder someone like you will jump to discredit anyone who brings up that name.

    Somehow I doubt the Rothschilds "invented" central banking.

    Pre-staging your withdrawal? I don't blame you. You're flailing.

    So, if we're programmed to seek to elevate ourselves over others then wouldn't that include using whatever-means-necessary to ensure the bottom stay on the bottom? How do the John Galts of the world keep their power if their workers are free to move on up?

    Question: Have you ever been in a ....civil...protest? If so what

    I havent read Ann Ryan. I've seen your (I hate to use this word but) pathetic debate tactics as far back as usenet. It's straw man tactics that isn't worth my time. You are unreason-able
    Would I be putting a grain-feed cow on a fad diet if I took it out of the feedlot and put it on pasture eating the grass nature intended?
