      National banks are usually controlled by elected governments.
      Pope Gregory I was well known for his alms to the poor, and he gave quite generously of the riches donated to the Church by the wealthy people of Rome. Everything from money to land was given to the poor in some fashion. He made clear to his subordinates that their duty was to relieve the distress faced by the poor.

      He ordered his clergy to go out into the streets to find and care for the poor in person.

      They are chosen by government administrators. Do you see the connections? It's sort of like the Medici family getting themselves a pope.

      I do?

      I hold Zuckerberg in serious contempt, along with his evil empire of aching faces.

      Elon Musk seems to be a guy who made a fortune out of a heavily subsidised industry. Now some parts of the technical press hang on his every word. Good for him.

      The Bible comes as a complete package. If we want to pluck verses out of context so make them mean what we want them to mean, if we want to ignore the passages that are inconvenient to our outlook, we should be intellectually honest enough to throw our Bibles in the trash and admit we are following Crowley and not Christ.

      Who was it who said "Give me control over a nation's currency and I care not who makes its laws"? It runs in my mind it was one of the Rothschild brothers.
