There is something mighty peculiar about money. It is entirely a human invention, yet like air and water, no one on Earth (no one who "counts," anyway) seems to be able to get along from one day to the next without a steady supply of it. What is money? Where does it come from, and where does it go? And how can one most effectively acquire more of it? Or, in the largest view, is this even necessary? Good questions. Possibly items in this collection will help in finding some of the answers to these, and other questions about money.

  • Rights vs. Privileges: An Analysis of Two Powerful Privileged Interests That Have Deprived Us of Fundamental Rights by Robert De Fremery. "One can have a privilege only by depriving other men of a portion of their rights. Consequently a reign of justice will consist in the destruction of every privilege and the restitution of every right."
    - Patrick Dove, 1850

  • The New Approach to Freedom Together with Essays on the Separation of Money and State by E. C. Riegel. "To desire freedom is an instinct. To secure it requires intelligence. It must be comprehended and self-asserted. To petition for it is to stultify oneself, for a petitioner is a confessed subject and lacks the spirit of a freeman. To rail and rant against tyranny is to manifest inferiority, for there is no tyranny but ignorance; to be conscious of one's powers is to lose consciousness of tyranny. Self government is not a remote aim. It is an intimate and inescapable fact. To govern oneself is a natural imperative, and all tyranny is the miscarriage of self government. The first requisite of freedom is to accept responsibility for the lack of it."
    - E. C. Riegel

  • Gold and Economic Freedom by Alan Greenspan. "In 1967, [Ayn] Rand published her non-fiction book, Capitalism, the Unknown Ideal. In it, she included Gold and Economic Freedom, the essay by Alan Greenspan which appears below.

[Editor, The Gilded Opinion.]

  • The Science of Getting Rich by Wallace D. Wattles. "THIS BOOK IS PRAGMATICAL, NOT PHILOSOPHICAL - a practical manual, not a treatise upon theories. It is intended for the men and women whose most pressing need is for money, who wish to get rich first, and philosophize afterward. It is for those who want results and who are willing to take the conclusions of science as a basis for action, without going into all the processes by which those conclusions were reached." [From the Preface, by W.D. Wattles.]

  • National Economic Security And Reformation Act: NESARA was secretly passed in March 2000 and signed into law October 2000. NESARA's implementation is being sabotaged by the current regime and big bankers. Join thousands of Americans working to get NESARA enacted! [Source: Dove of Oneness]
