“The few who understand the system, will either be so interested in its profits, or so dependent on its favors, that there will be no opposition from that class. The great body of people, mentally incapable of comprehending the tremendous advantages, will bear its burden without complaint.“

***** Part 2 is now available here!! Yes, Virginia, There are No Reserve Requirements
