Bankers & Lyndon B Johnson

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. He believed that they were the guilty party in Americas suffering during the Great depression. He held these views even more so after serving as President.

“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.
