The dollar is the de facto global currency, so let's change "nation" to "world" in Rothschild's most famous quote:
"Give me control of a world's money and I care not who makes its laws."
Restated as a maxim:
Laws do not apply to those who control the creation of money.
Is this maxim consistent with events of the last 10 years?
Bitching about the 1% will change nothing because bankers control the dollar and are immune to laws.
Money controlled by no one is the only moral regime.
@SmedleyButler Money will always be controlled by somebody. If not when it is created, then when it is spent.
There will always be someone is is better at getting stuff then others, either by simply being more clever, his force of personality, or his force of arms. And he will always get more money (or stuff) then other people because of it.
This does not disprove your point, but does provide a differing emphasis to it.
