Ezra Pound's Canto XLVI -Versus- Ron Paul's Jewish Gold Buggery

Christopher Jon Bjerknes

Ezra Pound excoriated the Jewish bankers over the radio on 12 February 1942, when he stated, inter alia,

"Well, as Lord Rothermere said: they are unteachable. I don't know how much more they reckon to drop before they get ready for physic. I have said on this radio before now that along about 1695 or 94 the Bank of England was put together, and in 1750 they shut down on the Pennsylvania colony money, and the system of lending paper money out to the farmers. And in 1776 the natural consequences of that dirty London policy of starvin' and cheatin' became, as they say, more apparent. And a year or two later Johnnie Adams said to the British commander: They were havin' a parley, sez John Adams. 'I don't care what capacity I am received in, receive me in any capacity you like except that of a British subject.' So the first large scale effect of the London cheatin', and money monopoly was the loss of American colonies. The Chinese have a method of countin' cycles of 80 years. I don't know that there is much in it, but it seems to work sometimes. Eighty years, from the bank to the American Revolution. About 80 years from startin' the American government to the great betrayal of 1863. Think it over. And from 63 to the present. OUR rise as a state, thru three or four major, but POSITIVE convulsions, like Jefferson's revolt against Hamilton's dirtiness, the Jackson-VanBuren war for the liberation of the American Treasury. Lincoln's sayin', 'give to this people the greatest blessin' they ever had, their own paper to pay their debt. And then the assassination of Lincoln."--Ezra Pound Canto XLVI, as quoted in V. Sherry, Ezra Pound, Wyndham Lewis, and radical modernism, Oxford University Press, New York, (1993), p. 194.

A recording of Pound reading this canto over the radio "Recorded by the Foreign Broadcast Intelligence Service of the FCC [Federal Communications Commission] on February 12, 1942."-- can be heard here:

The Jews stole Pound's freedom and forced him into an insane asylum. Pound advocated fiat currency, which would deprive the Jews of their system of usury through debt-based money creation and/or the use of gold as money. Wikipedia's article on Pound states,

"Pound advocated an abandonment of the current system of money being created by private bankers. He favored government issued currency[13] with no interest to pay, preventing the need for an income tax and national debt, much like the system used by the Pennsylvania Colony from 1723 to 1764.[citation needed] Pound argued that his views on money aligned with those of Thomas Jefferson, as well as with Benjamin Franklin's Colonial Scrip."--
