“This [Federal Reserve Act] establishes the most gigantic trust [trust, meaning here: so large an economic entity or group of entities, so concentrated its control, regardless of how formally monolithic or partitioned, that it is a monopoly, oligopoly or nearly so.] on earth. When the President Woodrow Wilson signs this bill, the invisible government of the monetary power will be legalized … the worst legislative crime of the ages is perpetrated by this banking and currency bill.” “Under the Federal Reserve Act, panics are scientifically created. The present panic is the first scientifically created one, worked out as we figure a mathematical equation.”
Charles August Lindbergh, Sr., Congressman and Member of the House Banking and Currency Committee, as quoted in Peter Joseph’s film, Zeitgeist: the Movie, Part III and en.wikipedia.org [text and definition in square brackets: author's notes]

“A world banking system was being set up here … a superstate controlled by international bankers … acting together to enslave the world for their own pleasure. The FED has usurped the government.” “It [the Great Depression, author’s note] was a carefully contrived occurrence. International bankers sought to bring about a condition of despair, so that they might emerge the rulers of us all.” “Some people think the Federal Reserve banks are United States Government institutions. They are not government institutions. They are private credit monopolies which prey upon the people of the United States for the benefit of themselves and their foreign customers. The Federal Reserve banks are the agents of the foreign central banks. Henry Ford has said, «The one aim of these financiers is world control by the creation of inextinguishable debts.» The truth is the Federal Reserve Board has usurped the Government of the United States by the arrogant credit monopoly which operates the Federal Reserve Board and the Federal Reserve Banks.”

Remarks in U.S. Congress, United States House Congressional Record, June 10th, 1932, as quoted in Peter Joseph’s film, Zeitgeist: the Movie, Part III, and in Eustace Mullins, The Secrets of the Federal Reserve, The London Connection
