Cartoon from 1912, one year before the creation of the Federal Reserve

A Reddit comment notes:

The cartoon is from Crozier’s book U. S. Money vs. Corporation Currency.

To be clear, the National Reserve Association was from the Aldrich plan, the Republican proposal which was defeated. The Democratic plan, after Wilson was elected, became the Federal Reserve system. The Federal Reserve differs in several ways, including having 12 regional banks instead of one and having more control of the banks by the Federal government. Crozier didn’t like the Federal Reserve Act much better, though.

    By living in the countries where the giant octupi consume your profits and wealth, one is acknowledging and approving their authority over you and right to take your earnings.

    You drive on roads built by the efforts of the octupi, your phone calls are made possible by the giant octopi.  All we ask is that you allow the all-consuming octupi to continue to do the same for the next generation.

    Just one instance of a “plan” to redistribute from the productive to the unproductive (entitled). The form of the “plan” is irrelevant. It is the mere fact of stealing from the productive, by any means that collapses civilizations. Easily PROVEN:
