Voluntero commented on Century of Enslavement: The History of The Federal Reserve
An error a lot of people make is where they wrongly conflate the Federal Reserve as capitalism because it's private. The Federal Reserve only exists because of the American government, it is the American government that granted it a monopoly over currency. In a real capitalistic society anyone could start up their own central bank which doesn't mean it would be successful as the success of the bank would be determined on who wants to use it. If you try that under the current system you'd get arrested and imprisoned.
