bankers - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
"Pray do tell," said the vicar's son, "what is the difference between top bankers and top mercenaries?"
There stood the bankers, an amarda of suits, none of them having every created a thing in their lives other than a spreadsheet or some answers on a math exam that helped no-one. They stood there so proud and so unaware that their industry was the rot of the world.
It was genius, such genius, and we bankers all got richer than God. They came to us, cap in hand for a mortgage, to buy a house for their sweetheart, something bigger for the kids and we scratched our chins, assessed their credit worthiness and made the loan. Here's the sweet part, that money we lent didn't even exist until the ink was dry on the mortgage paper, then after typing a few keys of our computers the money was created - an hour or so work for us, a lifetime of hard work for the borrower to pay us back in real labour. Plus if they default we own the house, so either way we convert fictional credits into something real with no effort. We invent the money and they work until they die of sickness or old age. But here's the best part, they think they're free! Ha, ha, ha, ha, what morons. Think like a mule, get ridden like a mule, that's what I say! They're the slaves and we're the masters and I don't care if they know. What are they going to do about it? Demand reform? Those idiots are too busy watching Oprah, feeling guilty over every calorie and posting their humdrum lives to social media. I'm more scared of my pet canary.
Let the "little people" argue over religion and politics, over which shiny horse wins the White House or 10 Downing Street. With control over the nation's money supply we bankers are above both. We are the Gods of this world. If there were no religions we'd have to invent other ways of division, divide and conquer, isn't that what we've always done? Anyway, the way things are going it'll be "game over" pretty soon, we'll have enough data to take out the rebels, the free-thinkers, in the most surgical of strikes. They'll find their bank accounts empty, their job gone, their identity "stolen." What a shame. Best to stay in your paddock my dears, we'll fleece you of course, but soon there won't be any options. We're looking forward to it, the end game after so many generations of work. We are the kings who will rule for thousands of years and we don't need God or morals. If I want your daughter she'll be mine until I'm bored of her, if want you derelict or dead you will be. Don't say you weren't warned, now be a good little flock. Baa. Baa.
"Give me control of a nations money supply, and I care not who makes its laws."
Mayer Amschel Rothschild (Founder of Rothschild Banking Dynasty) .
"Banking was conceived in iniquity and was born in sin. The Bankers own the earth. Take it away from them, but leave them the power to create deposits, and with the flick of the pen they will create enough deposits to buy it back again. However, take it away from them, and all the great fortunes like mine will disappear and they ought to disappear, for this would be a happier and better world to live in. But, if you wish to remain the slaves of Bankers and pay the cost of your own slavery, let them continue to create deposits."
SIR JOSIAH STAMP, (President of the Bank of England in the 1920's, the second richest man in Britain):.
