Woodrow Wilson after creating the Federal Reserve said

I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated governments in the civilized world. No longer a government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men.
~ Woodrow Wilson

    The people at Wikiquote say this quote is misattributed to Woodrow Wilson: http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Talk:Woodrow_Wilson

    • Anonymous says:

      The people at wikiquote are correct. Everyone else posting in support of this quote as being factually attributable to Wilson are wrong. 10 minutes of effortless internet searching can easily uncover the truth.

      Most of the conspiracy sites trying to tell you this quote is true are also trying to sell you something. There’s a sucker born every minute!


      • wow you’re a MORON. I never heard this particular quote before but dude get a clue, Wilson said MANY other similar quotes which is why I don’t doubt this 1 for a second. ““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.”” Now ask yourself how much it matters if the quote above is real or not when this one IS.

    That website above retracted their statement, Wilson did indeed write ALMOST those exact words in “The New Freedom: A Call for the Emancipation of the Generous Energies of a People”

    And so history repeats under Obama.

    Look at the quote from the book , “”A great industrial nation is now controlled by its system of credit.” is from Chapter 8, Monopoly, or Opportunity, pp. 111-112. He is referring to the danger of monopolies he is not even talking about any Federal reserve. The quote “We are no longer a government by free opinion….” is from Chapter 9, Benevolence, or Justice p. 122, all from 1911 and 1912 speeches.

    If you go to the original ” The New Freedom: A Call for the Emancipation of the Generous Energies of a People” and look at the chapter titled Monopoly or opportunity where the quote was pulled from it doesn’t have “I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country”

    • Nevestan says:

      What paragraph is that quote from?

      ” The New Freedom: A Call for the Emancipation of the Generous Energies of a People”


    • Benj says:

      If you read what he says in “The New Freedom page 183-185, he does speak of Monopolies as you say, but if you read the beginning part, he eludes to the creation of the Federal Reserve…or to the behavior that brought about the Federal Reserve.

      He says, “Therefore, when a small group of men approach Congress in order to induce the committee concerned to concur in certain legislation, nobody knows the ramifications of the interests which those men represent; there seems no frank and open action of public opinion in public counsel, but every man is suspected of representing some other man and it is not known where his connections begin or end.”

      Yes, he’s talking about Monopolies…what do you think the Federal Reserve is? The Federal Reserve Act was created in order to give complete and all control of banking to the Federal Reserve. Read up on it’s creation sometime, and you’ll see what I’m saying.

      • David says:

        I agree. The Federal Reserve is a cartel on our soil. Congress is at a loss. They can’t even audit this “entity”. We are now suffering the consequences. It is understandable why Wilson would be a..”most unhappy man”. We Americans should start researching the history of our country. This problem goes back to the beginning of our history. We can argue and filibuster each other all day like Congress and get no agreement.But, the struggle with this cartel is FACT not FICTION nor CRACKPOT. Read back to Alexander Hamilton, Andrew Jackson and especially Abraham Lincoln. Lincoln made statement of this 11/11/1864. Research and you find other presidents that had to deal with this. It has been a growing infestation.This is all American History, people! We can’t stay asleep if we want to keep our LIBERTY.
        Lastly this is just food for thought. Hilary Redham (Hilary Clinton,Secretary of State, now) wrote thesis in college, 1969. It was on book, “Rules for Radicals” by Saul Alinsky…She commented: It is far easier to cope with a man if, depending on his ideological perspective, he is classified as a “crackpot” than to grapple with the substantive issues he presents…With thinking like that, do you really want to go back to sleep and trust this kind of thinking with your FREEDOM…Remember, once it’s lost, we are just history..THINK ON THIS SERIOUSLY!!! Can you afford to take that chance for the sake of your family and children…We have a HERITAGE to PRESERVE…

    • Brandon Hart says:

      This entire quote is in regard to the federal reserve. As it has been documented, the federal reserve is the source of evil and debt within our nation.

    • chris vilona says:

      David what a shame you haven’t a clue as to what you are talking about. He is most certainly talking about the Fed and how destructive he saw it to be.. You sir need to do some due diligence.

    the non federal federal reserve is a cancer ; a parasite ; a counterfeiter ; it exists to enrich its owners ; the fed’s owners are not you and me ; they are giant banks and wall st betting parlors ; red shield bank ; goldman sachs ; rockefeller

    the fed prints [ electronically issues ] a trillion usd ; lends it to congress ; demands repayment from our income tax payments ; your national debt gets bigger and bigger ;

    the ngo nga non federal fed is no more federal than federal express ; it has no reserves with which to back up any currency it fraudulently creates ; the name “federal reserve” is a deception to make you think it is part of the government !

    the united states’ treasury should issue the money ; free from the national debt repayment by you and me obligation as provided in the constitution !

  12. tom gore says:

    My grandfather, U.S. Senator Thomas Pryor Gore of Oklahoma, forever regretted his vote in favor of establishing the Fed. For what it’s worth, that’s one more public official of that time to express remorse for having a hand in launching this bad and dangerous institution.

  13. CJL says:

    Regardless of any banter that suggests the contrary, Wilson is clearly mapping out the fate of a nation that allows a “select few” that obtain all of the of the economic power by basing everything around credit. And in their heart of heart, these select few think they are being patriotic by making decisions on behalf of individuals. That is not a ptriotic notion, when a countries foundation was based on individual liberty. Those that doubt the legitimacy of what Woodrow Wilson is saying, do your homework. It’s all right their, just look at the chronology of events. Almost a hundred years later, you have the long term effects of this select few’s plan. It’s happening before our very eyes, and there is nothing we can do about it.

    we can pray and obey the King of Kings, and stay loyal to Him, until His soon return.

    PS- do not take the “mark of the beast” which is like unto man’s number, 666

    2000 years ago, a man was boiled in oil, and did not die. He was then sent to the prison isle of Patmos, and wrote Revelations.

    before the internet

    at a time when communication around the globe was non-existent in many areas or took months and years


  15. Michael Meyering says:

    now world domination and “big brother” tracking is reality

    17so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of his name.
    18This calls for wisdom. If anyone has insight, let him calculate the number of the beast, for it is man’s number. His number is 666.

    United We Stand

    September events had shaken the land
    So, united we stood with flag in hand.
    And we had shared the anger and the tears
    Watching foreigners with their taunts and jeers.

    Soon came Freedom Fries and domestic beers
    And color codes to quantify our fears.
    Watching the news, a televised war,
    I had the feeling we’d been here before.

    And some had surmised it was a god’s will;
    A kind god, who wanted children to kill.
    A white-gloved war to be fought in the sand,
    While the re-runs played in TV-Land.

    The enemy of our enemy now our friend,
    Politicians’ words and a policy of pretend.
    Another ironic war and the acts of ill
    All tied to the trust on our one dollar bill.

    For through the black smoke of the burning oil,
    Politicians and bankers dine and toil.
    Bull markets and media are what we crave,
    As the backdoor drafts make a soldier-slave.

    Compromise abandoned with partisan pretense
    And corruption is counted in dollars and cents.
    Solidarity appeared in our time of rage,
    But we need it now so we can turn the page.

    It’s clear some of us have had quite enough
    Of the liars and cheats who talk so tough.
    We’ll take to the streets as we know we should
    And break party lines like when united we stood.

  19. The facts says:

    This was followed by the roaring twenties but then the downfall to the great depression

  20. David says:

    “However it has come about, it is more important still that the control of credit also has become dangerously centralized. It is the mere truth to say that the financial resources of the country are not at the command of those who do not submit to the direction and domination of small groups of capitalists who wish to keep the economic development of the country under their own eye and guidance. The great monopoly in this country is the monopoly of big credits. So long as that exists, our old variety and freedom and individual energy of development are out of the question. A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is privately concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men who, even if their action be honest and intended for the public interest, are necessarily concentrated upon the great undertakings in which their own money is involved and who necessarily, by very reason of their own limitations, chill and check and destroy genuine economic freedom. This is the greatest question of all, and to this statesmen must address themselves with an earnest determination to serve the long future and the true liberties of men.”

    Lookey here!

    People have been waiting and wanting for thousands of years to be living now. In our time. Interesting times, Date 11/11/11. Edward Mandell House’s choreography and orchestration of the beast was brilliant. Demonic but brilliant. House’s hidden White House influence. The initiation of the plan by Woodrow Wilson. The implementation of the working Marxist model by FDR as blueprinted in Phillip Dru Administrator . The control of Congress and the Whites House. The control of the media. .The control of public education. All for the benefit of a small but powerful group of elite that want to rule the world.

    The evolution into global banking hegemony. Global government and economy controlled by global banking cartels. The goal is to drive the world into bankruptcy, person by person, city and county and nation by nation into a global and a world credit based electronic banking system. All based on NOTHING OF VALUE, no equity. Creating a global fiat, fractional banking monopoly. It is designed to track your every economic move. Buy. Sell. Trade. Everywhere you go, every time you make a purchase from your bank account electronically. Your location is tracked by your cell phone or On Star in the car. An attempt is being made now, Now in Louisiana to make illegal the use of second hand (unrecorded) cash transactions. Could that be the mark of the beast?

    House made the blueprint and it has been implemented perfectly ever since. Today, their time plan is running short and they are in a hurry to make it happen by 2013. !00 years after the implementation of the Federal Reserve Act. America is bankrupt and we citizens are chattel property of the cartel. By nexus of our silence, ignorance and the social security system. Thereby pledging our life, property, future labor to pay the debt incurred by the Congress of the (corporation) of the United States in our and our progeny’s name. To be repaid at interest for money created from thin air. Recorded as digital bookkeeping entry of no substance.

    Constitutional Republic is destroyed. Our nation bankrupt. Our citzens made slaves to debt and chattel property. All by voluntarily contracting their rights away waving their rightful Amercian National status and becoming 14th Amendment citizens (by fraud). Our nation in perpetual war. Our dead veterans bodies parts placed in landfills. Our industry sent abroad. Our people unemployed. Our money worthless. Our homes seized, Our persons and son and daughters and wives, and effects groped violated at will by the corrupt TSA. Our people poisoned by water and vaccinations..Our liberties impaired in the name of homeland security. Yet we stand here idol.

    David. I too am anoher David. And I guess the name implies the truth in which we speak. The stock market crash was engineered by the powers to be in the federal reserve and the war in Iraq and Afghanistan nothing less then the govt shaking hands with the arms dealers in our country. Where money is to be made. The corrupt which corrupts absolutely is sure to be found. God rest our founding fathers and henceforth the Constitution in which they laid their lives on the line for.

    Yes Yes and Yes.. It is good to see there are some folks here whom know what the heck they are talking about.. Very refreshing YOU ARE CORRECT DAVID it was engineered just as this one has been engineered and it will get worse as they start to strip us of our rights.. Keep thinking freely and keep fighting against the Elite!

  26. chris says:

    Yes yes and Yes.. Very well said David.. It was engineered as this Crisis has been engineered.. And they will keep doing this, the creation of false crisis then offer the solution and the solution always involves stripping us of more of our rights.. As they wish to return us the serfdom of old. Keep speaking the truth keep using critical thinking and keep fighting the Elite!
