You want to exercise the power of the money, stop giving it to irresponsible corporations and spend it wisely day to day.

Creating money out of thin air = POWER

Allowing private banks to control and issue our currency = NO POWER

If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks…will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered…. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs. – Thomas Jefferson in the debate over the Re-charter of the Bank Bill (1809)

“I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies.” – Thomas Jefferson

… The modern theory of the perpetuation of debt has drenched the earth with blood, and crushed its inhabitants under burdens ever accumulating. -Thomas Jefferson

If congress has the right under the Constitution to issue paper money, it was given them to use themselves, not to be delegated to individuals or corporations. -Andrew Jackson

Not paying back loans will just fuck the economy even further. And that's stealing btw to take a loan out and just decide to not pay it back.

Destroying the economy, will force to restructure how the financial system works with new faces and new ideas and regulations.

"Destroying" is a bad term. The Austrian School of Economics believes that letting the economy collapse will give it a chance to fix itself and come back stronger. I agree with the laissez faire approach for this reason. But 2 things...

  1. Austrian Economics doesn't like "new regulations". Many believe this collapse is the governments fault because they encouraged high risk investing. (If you're going to get bailed out, why be careful?).

  2. We don't practice the Austrian School of Economics in the US
