“Hence the bank is a crime syndicate that passes off its felonies as a bargain for the victims. … Upon their issue the Central Bank, in order to maintain control on monetary values, created by citizens (and that therefore ought to be credited to them), issues them by lending them, thus charging them, in the hugest fraud of all times. In this manner the great usury has turned peoples from owners to debtors of their own money.”
Giacinto Auriti, Il Paese dell’Utopia (The Land of Utopia)

“If a covert plan of economic warfare has been waged, it may have international rather than mere national implications as various commentators have charged. Counterfeiting on a national level is a treasonous crime against that nation. However, it seems reasonable to classify international scale economic warfare as a "crime against humanity."”
Vladimir Z. Nuri, Fractional Reserve Banking as Economic Parasitism

“…the greatest crime against Humanity of all times. As you know, over the last few years the lost output from the policies of austerity, the families and businesses and rights destroyed, and lives lost, the total loss to Humanity, has been greater than all the losses from all the wars in the history of the world combined. And thanks to you, to your selfless efforts, the political leadership has lost any possibility of innocence.”
Warren Mosler

“The causes of evil are as numerous as the varieties of evil. The Banking system must be regarded as the principal cause of social evil in the United States; but it is by no means the only one. There are other positive institutions in our land which are very pernicious. Remove the Banking system, and the extent in which most other evil institutions operate, will become evident. The application of the proper remedies will then be an easy task.”
William M. Gouge, A Short History of Paper Money and Banking in the United States, also quoted in Arthur Nussbaum, A History of the Dollar
