 Dr. Carroll Quigley is best known as Bill Clinton's professor of 
history at the Foreign Service School of Georgetown University. He 
also taught at Princeton and at Harvard. 
     His 1300 page book "Tragedy and Hope" is unique among other 
history books in its exposure of the role of International Banking 
cabal behind-the-scenes in world affairs. 
     He does not spend a lot of time explaining what he calls 
"unorthodox" financial methods as opposed to "orthodox" financial 
methods which can be be distinguished by the fact that "orthodox" 
finance has governments allowing banks to create the money and then 
borrowing that money from them at interest to create massive growth of 
public debt whereas "unorthodox" finance has government Treasuries 
create the money and borrowing that money from the Treasury without 
interest to create a stable debt where all payments go against the 
principal. 
     The recurrent theme of these historical texts is the 
oppression of the poor by the International bankers. When I speak of 
Rothschild and Rockefeller (R&R), I am treating them as the epitome of 
the parasitic usurer families for according to the golden rule, those 
who have the gold makes the rules and throughout most of recent 
history, the Rothschild and Rockefeller families have been the most 
prominent owners of the gold. Blame for all the genocides and most 
murders of recent history can be laid at their feet though it is a 
responsibility shared by their banker cronies the world over. I know 
that if Christ came back and had a whip in hand, it's these 
moneylenders he's go after, once again.   
     Over and over, Quigley details governments acting for the 
benefits of the owners of money to the detriment of the poor to the 
point where the poor strike or riot rather than face starvation 
quietly. 
     Quigley, on a regular basis, mentions orthodox versus unorthodox 
financial methods without ever detailing the unorthodox methods 
responsible for the happiness of the citizens though he goes into 
great depth about the orthodox financial methods which result in such 
oppressive misery. 
     Whereas orthodox financial methods can be best explained as 
government licensing private banks to create the money and then borrow 
it from them at interest whereas unorthodox financial methods can be 
best explained as government Treasury creating the money and paying no 
interest to middlemen. Recent use of orthodox financial methods is 
detailed at: http://www.cyberclass.net/turmel/np2.htm 
      I will be studying his book in conjunction with the greatest 
book about monetary systems in antiquity, David Astle's "Babylonian 
Woe,"  In anticipation of a major improvement on the current unsafe 
engineering design of money, I will be arguing that the unorthodox 
financial methods we will be studying are better than the orthodox 
financial methods that now are enslaving all the planet's nations to 
insurmountable debt.
