Today while reading Pay any Price by Lloyd C. Gardner, a quote by Lyndon B. Johnson stood out to me.
Below, Johnson set out his view on what he believed would cause a developed country to break from democracy and shift to either Communism or Fascism – Bankers.

“If we ever have a revolution and throw out our system for Communism or fascism, [bankers] they’ll be the prime reason for it…”
You look at Europe and you just have to wonder was he accurately soothsaying the future.
