"The rich rules over the poor and the borrower is the slave of the lender." ~ Proverbs 22:7 (ESV)
The money tree has root-rot that goes deeper (by several centuries) than any "audit the Fed" or "occupy" endeavor can address. The word "usury" has been redefined somewhere between ancient Canaan & Athens...and Jekyll Island & the Masonically labeled "33 Liberty Street" in New York City. The Old Testament condemns usury (Cf. Leviticus 25:35-37). To Aristotle, usury is "justly censured...hated" because it is "unnatural" (Politics 1.10). Plato forbade the practice in his final vision for an optimal State (Laws 742c). What effected the transformation from wholesale condemnation to widespread acceptance? Want to get at the root?
