‘Biggest men in the United States are afraid of somebody, are afraid of something’
“Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the field of commerce and manufacture, are afraid of somebody, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it.” —Woodrow Wilson (1856 – 1924), the 28th U.S. President from 1913 to 1921
Michael Flurscheim: “It is related that Napoleon, when shown an interest table said, after some reflection:
The deadly facts herein revealed lead me to wonder that this monster, interest, has not devoured the whole human race. It would have done so long ago if bankruptcy and revolution had not acted as counter poisons.
Aristotle on Politics
“Usury is most reasonably detested as the increase arises from the money itself, and not by employing it to the purpose for which it was intended.”
For your Christians readers…
In his book, “Money and Its True Function,” F. R. Burch
has the following comment:
“As long as Christ confined his teachings to the realm of morality and righteousness, He was undisturbed; it was not till He assailed the established economic system and ‘cast out’ the profiteers and ‘overthrew the tables of the money changers,’ that He was doomed. The following day He was questioned, betrayed on the second, tried on the third and on the fourth crucified.”

The Apostle Paul
The Apostle Paul, in telling of his Vision, said: “And I saw another multitude of men and women, and worms consumed them. But I lamented and sighing asked the angel and said, ‘Who are these?’ And he said to me: These are those who exacted interest ON interest, and trusted in their riches and did not hope in God that He was their helper.”
“The Apostles Paul, Peter, Stephen, and James were killed. Peter was struck, Stephen overwhelmed with stones, James was a victim of the Altar and Paul was beheaded.” — Antinicene Fathers, Vol. 13, page 648.
