I'm posting this conversation because I think it's a good example of how people are conditioned to have hostile or otherwise completely irrational reactions to ideas that are outside of the acceptable framework for discussion as defined by our media and politicians.

An instructive Twitter conversation:

    Where the hell did that pro-slavery argument come from?! Mind boggling.

      I’m assuming she thinks if there was not a regulatory body (the Fed, Congress, etc) then banks would use their “unregulated” control of currency to take full control of the economy or something like that. That’s the only way I could see someone thinking “End the Fed” is equivalent to “Pro-Slavery.”

      Twitter with it’s character limit probably isn’t the most conducive environment to debating important issues. It would be difficult to explain how money works in the free market to someone over twitter, just like it would probably be hard for her to explain her “Pro-Slavery” argument over twitter.

    How does she think giving Congress control of the currency will stop TBTF in any way? I’m sure Congress is just as connected to business interests as the Fed is. Her suggestion is to fix the problem by giving control from one institution known to abuse power to another institution known to abuse power. Since when did changing bullies help the little guy?
