How banks create the world’s money.

The Money Masters is a non-fiction historical documentary that discusses the origins of the political power structure, the concepts of money, debt, taxes, and describes their development from biblical times onward.

The modern political power structure has its roots in the hidden manipulation and accumulation of gold and other forms of money. The development of fractional reserve banking practices in the 17th century brought to a cunning sophistication the secret techniques initially used by goldsmiths fraudulently to accumulate wealth. With the formation of the privately-owned Bank of England in 1694, the yoke of economic slavery to a privately-owned central bank was first forced upon the backs of an entire nation, not removed but only made heavier with the passing of the three centuries to our day. Nation after nation has fallen prey to this cabal of international central bankers.

Prepare for indoctrination or the best piece of propaganda in a generation.

Described as “1984 meets The Blair Witch Project”, “A mouthful of scary porridge”, and “Even better than Triumph of The Will” the documentary is an anti-Western propaganda film about the influences of American visual and consumption culture on the rest of the world from a North Korean perspective.

Presented by an anonymous North Korean professor, the film attacks the moral attenuation, political manipulation and hyper-consumerism that characterize the Western world. In chapters with titles like “Rewriting History,” “Advertising” and “The Cult of Celebrity,” we are treated to a lineup of the most embarrassing occidental excesses and globalization, the “psychological warfare” at the hands of multinationals, shopping-obsessed consumers and the failure of democracy.
