G. Edward Griffin’s controversial book was titled, “The Creature from Jekyll Island”.
It’s not fiction, but it talked about the beast that will destroy those that do nothing, and just go along with the program.
The setting: Jekyll Island Club Hotel is on the private island of Jekyll Island, off the Georgia coast.
The key players: Wall Street bankers, a few US Senators and some other New York financial elites who decided to met on Jekyll Island (a private island) off the coast of Georgia in 1910 to establish a new central banking system.
G. Edward Griffin took another look at the creature and explained it in one video clip which was broken down into eight parts. Total time 42:15 mins.
Part 1 time marker (0:01 – 7:15) What is the Federal Reserve System?
Part 2 time marker (7:16 – 28:57) Who drafted the plan for the Fed and where did that occur?
Part 3 time marker (28:58 – 31:34) Should our paper currency still be backed by silver and gold?
Part 4 time marker (31:35 – 33:46) What is the problem of fiat money?
Part 5 time marker (33:47 – 34:55) Why do the bankers get away with it?
Part 6 time marker (34:56 – 36:47) What might happen if we continue on our current path?
Part 7 time marker (36:48 – 38:56) What good might come to returning to constitutional money?
Part 8 time marker (38:57 – 42:15) What can concerned citizens do to help?
Mr. Flaherty of the Political Research Associates (PRA) on the online archive of the old [Public Eye.Org website] went into more detail. He went back to the history of banking prior to the Civil War.
The National Banking Acts of 1863 & 1864. These act were enacted to assert some degree of Federal control over the states banking system without the formation of another central bank. The primary purposes;
1. Create a system of a national banks per regions of the country.
2. Create a uniformed national currency system.
3. Create a financial market to help pay for the United States Civil War.
Next came the 1907 bank panic. Tom Cunningham, vice president, senior economist and regional executive of the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta blamed the problem with the clearing houses.
Then there was the Reserve Act of 1913. According to the PRA writer, the Jekyll Island plan failed but the outline was adopted. Eight to twelve autonomous regional banks would be owned by the bankers in each region but their actions would be coordinated by a federal reserve board that was appointed by the President of the United States. This was a case of being privately owned but publicly controlled.
The too big to fail, was a monetary policy that failed. It failed so bad that Hollywood even got into the act. Fiction followed real life. A few people saw it coming but too many didn’t.
When the movie finally came out, many still wondered why most of the people who caused the problem didn’t go to jail.
