Once a nation parts with the control of its currency and credit, it matters not who makes that nation's laws. Usury, once in control, will wreck any nation. Until the control of the issue of currency and credit is restored to government and recognized as its most conspicuous and sacred responsibility, all talk of the sovereignty of Parliament and of democracy is idle and futile.
There's a similar, widely cited quote attributed to Mayer Rothschild,
Give me control of a nation's money and I care not who makes it's laws.
However, that attribution is highly suspect, according
So I had my suspicions about King's quote as well.
Some internet research revealed numerous citations,
but none of them seemed particularly reliable.
The best I found
was a transcription
of a 1946 book by Louis Even,
In This Age of Plenty,
on what appears to be a quaint
Christian libertarian site.
Thanks to Family Guardian for hosting this fascinating text!
It's a real book, and apparently still in print.
The King quote
can be found in Chapter 24,
which is the source for this notice.
Even led with the quote,
but he reports that King never got very far with
commitment to curb the dictatorship of finance.
Turns out Even was an evangelist for Social Credit,
coherent and cogent body of thought on social matters
developed early in the twentieth century
by Clifford Hugh Douglas,
according to the C.H. Douglas Institute for the Study and Promotion of Social Credit.
Possibly a worthy subject
for a future enquiry.
