Invading the Middle East and Central Asia (while ) is the mark of a weak empire, and the USA is having difficulty digesting what it seized, in a classic instance of imperial overreach. In the end, the American Empire’s creditors will probably end up bringing it to heel.

About a century ago, as robber barons such as and Andrew Carnegie were taking over colleges, , and other American institutions, reshaping and corrupting them to further their ambitions, the banking robber baron, , was reshaping the American banking system. The Federal Reserve System was born in those days. There are plenty of conspiracy theories regarding those events, and some may well be true. There are arguments about banking leaving the gold standard. The reasoning is that if money was based on gold, then the governments and banks could not issue money at will, but it had to be backed by something tangible. As history has shown, if money is based on gold, it leads to gold rushes, which in the big picture are merely counterfeiting operations, which in essence is stealing from one’s neighbor.
