“Fourth-layer aggression is the forced use of subsidized, exclusive monopolies. One example of fourth-layer aggression is the money monopoly, a central bank with an exclusive license to issue currency. By empowering the money monopoly, we have created inflationary boom-and-bust cycles, which redistribute wealth from the poor to the rich.
When everyone is forced to use the money monopoly to pay taxes and settle debts, central banks like the Fed become so powerful that they control the economic fate of the entire nation.” – Dr. Mary J. Ruwart
