Issue #534: A thorough history of money

I am at somewhat of a loss for something to write about this morning, so I figured I'd share this documentary recommended by our friend Beautyon, The Money Masters, with you freaks. A three-and-a-half-hour Epic from the 1990s that walks us through the history of money, which includes countless warnings from our ancestors that we should be wary of "money changers".

As you freaks know very well by now, CRAZY Uncle Marty believes the world is stuck in a collective fog that stems mainly from the fact that no one really understands what money is. And, more importantly, the undue influence that is afforded to those closest to the spigot of money creation. In this movie, William T. Still does an incredible job of storytelling that connects our present-day monetary system to monetary systems that have evolved going all the way back to Ancient Rome.

Regardless of whether or not you agree with the conclusions made in the doc, this, again, is the most thorough one-stop-shop of monetary history that I have encountered to date. I highly recommend you give it a watch when you get a chance. I found putting it on 1.5x speed was very manageable.          

Final thought...

Never start a war with an itchy butt.
