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.

The consumerism totally consumed us.

Surplus: Terrorized into Being Consumers from 2003 is a film odyssey about the destructive sides of consumer culture and described as “a global doomsday satire set to music”. It used the language of music video, propaganda and commercial advertising as a response to the forces of globalization.

Why is the lifestyle of consumerism a source of such rage today? How come the privilege of buying goods does not automatically lead to happiness? Why all this emptiness despite our wealth? Surplus’ approach is to portray this issue from an emotional rather than a factual perspective.
