“But what that means, Richard, is that power on this planet is phenomenally centralized. Phenomenally centralized. And that is compatible with an open, not a closed economy. I say this because I think it is so extraordinary that you and I live on a planet with these other well-educated intelligent people and we have no idea what the governance structure on our planet is. It’s secret.” ~ Catherine Austin Fitts

“Long ago, I made a promise that I would never act against the best interests or the excellence of my own people—that I would do my best to ensure that we were worthy of the stewardship of our world and that we did our best to leave a better world for generations yet to come. To make and keep such a promise is to understand that money and position are tools, not goals, and that death is not the worst thing that can happen. Some would probably accuse me of ‘fighting the tape’ and not being ‘good at the game.’ I would tell those people that now is not the time in the history of our people for a failure of imagination.” ~ Catherine Austin Fitts
