I watched Zeitgeist yesterday, I was very surprised. I am happy someone publically addressed the Federal Reserve's basic framework, and the founding father's thoughts toward central banking. Has anyone else seen Zeitgeist?

You can watch it free here. Zeitgeist

That the American Rebellion was fought to undermine the power of private British banking institutions is an idea I would readily support. Heck, I would have even carried a banner. Nationalise all Banks doesn’t have the same clarion call as No Taxation without Representation. Mind you I wasn’t aware the colonists paid any taxes and that laws like the Currency Act 1764 were largely ignored. So if, as the film seems to imply, the USA has ended up in the hands of private American banking institutions then old Ben Franklin must be spinning in his grave.

Not just private American - private multi-national banks. The Federal reserve board is made up of banking heads from other countries - mostly Germany and GB, IIRC.

Go to youtube and search for G Edward Griffin if you want more on the Fed. You can also go straight to his website - www.freedom-force.org

Excuse me, not mostly made up, but includes several non-US citizens....

I wonder, sometimes, how these are not the issues discussed at Ornery. Fundamental flaws in U.S. society, economy and culture...interesting.

There is a lot of out of context or intentionally misleading information in this movie seemingly designed to make a political point. Issues such as the Federal Reserve and World bank have indeed been common topics here, and people have provided a lot of information that disputes this movie's contentions in particular. So other than it being an entertaining, albeit insipid movie what else would you like to discuss about this particular movie?

And who do I see about getting back the two hours of my life that I just wasted on watching this movie?
