There is and has been for some time a conspiracy among some of the richest people in the world. A conspiracy that virtually owns the money systems ... In the United States this monetary fraud is perpetuated through the Federal Reserve system ... The capitalist conspiracy in this country surfaces to public view in the form of the semi-secret Council on Foreign Relations ... On the surface the capitalist conspiracy appears to oppose communism ...
