Why Trade?

Trade lets you pay for what you need with what you have, permitting you to retain working capital for other needs. Using trade instead of cash to purchase needed products and services means you can decrease your costs while increasing your profits... more..

Who Can Trade?

CrowdBucks takes the proven Business-to-Business (B2B) "Trade Exchange" concept to the next logical level by allowing anyone to buy and sell anything (legal) to anyone else -- without the need to use traditional cash or expensive bank-issued credit. more..

How Does The Trade Network Work?

Barter and Trade have been around for thousands of years, but the age-old practice has recently changed a great deal mainly due to computers and the Internet. The days of trading chickens directly for a goat (for example) are behind us  more..

You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.
Buckminster Fuller
Let's get together and feel alright.
Bob Marley
Self-trust is the first secret of success.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative and creation, there is one elementary truth the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one's favor all manner of unforeseen incidents, meetings and material assistance which no man could have dreamed would have come his way. Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now.
Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
An individual who breaks a law that conscience tells him is unjust and who willingly accepts the penalty of imprisonment in order to arouse the conscience of the community over its injustice, is in reality expressing the highest respect for the law.
Martin Luther King
We who in engage in nonviolent direct action are not the creators of tension. We merely bring to the surface the hidden tension that is already alive.
Martin Luther King
The voice of protest, of warning, of appeal is never more needed than when the clamor of fife and drum, echoed by the press and too often by the pulpit, is bidding all men fall in step and obey in silence the tyrannous word of command. Then, more than ever, it is the duty of the good citizen not to be silent.
Charles Eliot Norton
I quietly declare war with the State, after my fashion, though I will still make use and get advantage of her as I can, as is usual in such cases.
Henry David Thoreau
There is all the difference in the world between the criminal's avoiding the public eye and the civil disobedience's taking the law into his own hands in open defiance. This distinction between an open violation of the law, performed in public, and a clandestine one is so glaringly obvious that it can be neglected only by prejudice or ill will
Hannah Arendt
If you attack the establishment long enough and hard enough, they will make you a member of it.
Art Buchwald
Resistance is feasible even for those who are not heroes by nature, and it is an obligation, I believe, for those who fear the consequences and detest the reality of the attempt to impose American hegemony.
Noam Chomsky
While there is a lower class, I am in it; while there is a criminal element, I am of it; and while there is a soul in prison, I am not free.
Eugene V. Debs
All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.
Edmund Burke
The world is a dangerous place to live, not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don't do anything about it.
Albert Einstein
At least two thirds of our miseries spring from human stupidity, human malice and those great motivators and justifiers of malice and stupidity, idealism, dogmatism and proselytizing zeal on behalf of religious or political idols.
Aldous Huxley
Men never do evil so completely and cheerfully as when they do it from religious conviction.
Blaise Pascal
Nobody is more dangerous than he who imagines himself pure in heart, for his purity, by definition, is unassailable.
James Baldwin
We frail humans are at one time capable of the greatest good and, at the same time, capable of the greatest evil. Change will only come about when each of us takes up the daily struggle ourselves to be more forgiving, compassionate, loving, and above all joyful in the knowledge that, by some miracle of grace, we can change as those around us can change too.
Mairead Maguire
We must develop and maintain the capacity to forgive. He who is devoid of the power to forgive is devoid of the power to love. There is some good in the worst of us and some evil in the best of us. When we discover this, we are less prone to hate our enemies.
Martin Luther King, Jr
First say to yourself what you would be and then do what you have to do.
Epictetus
The function of wisdom is to discriminate between good and evil.
Cicero
It is a sin to believe evil of others, but it is seldom a mistake.
H. L. Mencken:
The sad truth is that most evil is done by people who never make up their minds to be good or evil.
Hannah Arendt
Science may have found a cure for most evils but it has found no remedy for the worst of them all -- the apathy of human beings.
Helen Keller
I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. This is why right, temporarily defeated, is stronger than evil triumphant.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
No man chooses evil because it is evil; he only mistakes it for happiness, the good he seeks.
Mary Wollstonecraft
Every political good carried to the extreme must be productive of evil.
Mary Wollstonecraft
.Wickedness sucks in the greater part of its own venom, and poisons itself therewith.
Michel De Montaigne
It is always good men who do the most harm in the world.
Henry Brooks Adam
If your heart acquires strength, you will be able to remove blemishes from others without thinking evil of them.
Mohandas K. Gandhi
.I believe that ignorance is the root of all evil. And that no one knows the truth.
Molly Ivins
.Life has a bright side and a dark side, for the world of relativity is composed of light and shadows. If you permit your thoughts to dwell on evil, you yourself will become ugly. Look only for the good in everything so you absorb the quality of beauty.
Paramahansa Yogananda
.Man is neither angel nor brute, and the misfortune is that he who would act the angel acts the brute.
Pascal
.To put it in a few words, the true malice of man appears only in the state and in the church, as institutions of gathering together, of recapitulation, of totalization.
Paul Ricoeur
Do as the heavens have done, forget your evil; With them forgive yourself.
William Shakespeare
All men have a sweetness in their life. That is what helps them go on. It is towards that they turn when they feel too worn out.
Albert Camus
.In lazy Apathy let Stoics boast, Their Virtue fix'd, 'tis fixed as in a frost.
Alexander Pope
.It may well be that our means are fairly limited and our possibilities restricted when it comes to applying pressure on our government. But is this a reason to do nothing? Despair is nor an answer. Neither is resignation. Resignation only leads to indifference, which is not merely a sin but a punishment
Elie Wiesel
.That only a few, under any circumstances, protest against the injustice of long-established laws and customs, does not disprove the fact of the oppressions, while the satisfaction of the many, if real only proves their apathy and deeper degradation.
Elizabeth Cady Stanton
.It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.
Franklin D. Roosevelt
.Disobedience, the rarest and most courageous of the virtues, is seldom distinguished from neglect, the laziest and commonest of the vices.
George Bernard Shaw
.Truth is not only violated by falsehood it may be equally outraged by silence
Henri Frederic Amie
.Is it ignorance or apathy? Hey, I don't know and I don't care.
Jimmy Buffett
.The difference between what we do and what we are capable of doing would suffice to solve most of the world's problems.
Mohandas K. Gandhi
.The price of apathy towards public affairs is to be ruled by evil men.
Plato
.The death of democracy is not likely to be an assassination from ambush. It will be a slow extinction from apathy, indifference, and undernourishment.
Robert M. Hutchins
.Instead of saying that man is the creature of circumstance, it would be nearer the mark to say that man is the architect of circumstance.
Thomas Carlyle
.The apathy of the people is enough to make every statue leap from its pedestal and hasten the resurrection of the dead.
William Lloyd Garrison
Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any other one thing.
Abraham Lincoln
If we value independence, if we are disturbed by the growing conformity of knowledge, of values, of attitudes, which our present system induces, then we may wish to set up conditions of learning which make for uniqueness, for self-direction, and for self-initiated learning.
Carl Rogers
The trick is in what one emphasizes. We either make ourselves miserable, or we make ourselves happy. The amount of work is the same.
Carlos Castaneda
Work is either fun or drudgery. It depends on your attitude. I like fun.
Colleen C. Barrett
To put the world right in order, we must first put the nation in order; to put the nation in order, we must first put the family in order; to put the family in order, we must first cultivate our personal life; we must first set our hearts right.
Confucius
Small opportunities are often the beginning of great enterprises.
Demosthenes
Nothing is easier than self-deceit. For what each man wishes, that he also believes to be true.
Demosthenes
The colossal misunderstanding of our time is the assumption that insight will work with people who are unmotivated to change. Communication does not depend on syntax, or eloquence, or rhetoric, or articulation but on the emotional context in which the message is being heard. People can only hear you when they are moving toward you, and they are not likely to when your words are pursuing them. Even the choices words lose their power when they are used to overpower. Attitudes are the real figures of speech.
Edwin H. Friedman
Bite off more than you can chew, then chew it.
Ella Williams
The thing always happens that you really believe in and the belief in a thing makes it happen.
Frank Lloyd Wright
The basic thing is that everyone wants happiness, no one wants suffering. And happiness mainly comes from our own attitude, rather than from external factors. If your own mental attitude is correct, even if you remain in a hostile atmosphere, you feel happy.
H.H. The Dalai Lama
When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us.
Helen Keller
Thought is the sculptor who can create the person you want to be.
Henry David Thoreau
If you think you can, you can. And if you think you can't, you're right.
Henry Ford
You cannot dream yourself into a character you must hammer and forge yourself one
James A. Froude
To do evil that good may come of it is for bunglers in politics as well as morals.
William Penn
In this world everything changes except good deeds and bad deeds these follow you as the shadow follows the body.
A long habit of not thinking a thing wrong gives it a superficial appearance of being right.
Thomas Paine
Since boredom advances and boredom is the root of all evil, no wonder, then, that the world goes backwards, that evil spreads. This can be traced back to the very beginning of the world. The gods were bored; therefore they created human beings.
Soren Kierkegaard
All good is hard. All evil is easy. Dying, losing, cheating, and mediocrity is easy. Stay away from easy.
Scott Alexander
But goodness alone is never enough. A hard cold wisdom is required, too, for goodness to accomplish good. Goodness without wisdom invariably accomplishes evil.
Robert Heinlein
The greatest minds are capable of the greatest vices as well as of the greatest virtues.
Rene Descartes
The meaning of good and bad, of better and worse, is simply helping or hurting.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Hypocrisy, the lie, is the true sister of evil, intolerance, and cruelty.
Raisa Gorbachev
When good people in any country cease their vigilance and struggle, then evil men prevail.
Pearl S. Buck
When choosing between two evils, I always like to try the one I've never tried before.
Mae West
The belief in a supernatural source of evil is not necessary men alone are quite capable of every wickedness..
Joseph Conrad
The most successful people are those who are good at plan B.
James Yorke
The truth is that our finest moments are most likely to occur when we are feeling deeply uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled. For it is only in such moments, propelled by our discomfort, that we are likely to step out of our ruts and start searching for different ways or truer answers.
M. Scott Peck
If you are distressed by anything external, the pain is not due to the thing itself, but to your estimate of it; and this you have the power to revoke at any moment
Marcus Aurelius
No one, Eleanor Roosevelt said, can make you feel inferior without your consent. Never give it.
Marian Wright Edelman
You really can change the world if you care enough.
Marian Wright Edelman
And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
Marianne Williamson
A discriminating irreverence is the creator and protector of human liberty.
Mark Twain
The greatest part of our happiness depends on our dispositions, not our circumstances
Martha Washington
To fly, we have to have resistance.
Maya Lin
Life is a train of moods like a string of beads; and as we pass through them they prove to be many colored lenses, which paint the world their own hue, and each shows us only what lies in its own focus.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
So is cheerfulness, or a good temper, the more it is spent, the more remains.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Sooner or later, those who win are those who think they can.
Richard Bach
Peace is not the absence of war; it is a virtue; a state of mind; a disposition for benevolence; confidence; and justice.
Spinoza
Opportunity is missed by most because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.
Thomas Alva Edison
I'm a great believer in luck and I find the harder I work, the more I have of it.
Thomas Jefferson
Everything can be taken from a man but ... the last of the human freedoms - to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way.
Victor Frankl
The greatest discovery of our generation is that human beings can alter their lives by altering their attitudes of mind. As you think, so shall you be.
William James
I accept chaos. I am not sure whether it accepts me. I know some people are terrified of the bomb. But then some people are terrified to be seen carrying a modern screen magazine. Experience teaches us that silence terrifies people the most.
Bob Dylan
You need chaos in your soul to give birth to a dancing star.
Nietzsche
The most decisive actions of our life ... are most often unconsidered actions.
André Gide
We need to find the courage to say NO to the things and people that are not serving us if we want to rediscover ourselves and live our lives with authenticity.
Barbara De Angelis
Freedom is not merely the opportunity to do as one pleases; neither is it merely the opportunity to choose between set alternatives. Freedom is, first of all, the chance to formulate the available choices, to argue over them -- and then, the opportunity to choose.
C. Wright Mills
Freedom is not merely the opportunity to do as one pleases; neither is it merely the opportunity to choose between set alternatives. Freedom is, first of all, the chance to formulate the available choices, to argue over them -- and then, the opportunity to choose.
C. Wright Mills
Our personal consumer choices have ecological, social, and spiritual consequences. It is time to re-examine some of our deeply held notions that underlie our lifestyles.
David Suzuki
My will shall shape the future. Whether I fail or succeed shall be no man's doing but my own. I am the force; I can clear any obstacle before me or I can be lost in the maze. My choice; my responsibility; win or lose, only I hold the key to my destiny.
Elaine Maxwell
I believe that we are solely responsible for our choices, and we have to accept the consequences of every deed, word, and thought throughout our lifetime.
Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
What you always do before you make a decision is consult. The best public policy is made when you are listening to people who are going to be impacted. Then, once policy is determined, you call on them to help you sell it.
Elizabeth Dole
One ship sails East, And another West, By the self-same winds that blow, Tis the set of the sails And not the gales, That tells the way we go.
Ella Wheeler Wilcox
Most people can look back over the years and identify a time and place at which their lives changed significantly. Whether by accident or design, these are the moments when, because of a readiness within us and a collaboration with events occurring around us, we are forced to seriously reappraise ourselves and the conditions under which we live and to make certain choices that will affect the rest of our lives.
Frederick F. Flack
We can learn from history how past generations thought and acted, how they responded to the demands of their time and how they solved their problems. We can learn by analogy, not by example, for our circumstances will always be different than theirs were. The main thing history can teach us is that human actions have consequences and that certain choices, once made, cannot be undone. They foreclose the possibility of making other choices and thus they determine future events.
Gerda Lerner
You must train your intuition -- you must trust the small voice inside you which tells you exactly what to say, what to decide.
Ingrid Bergman
Everything you now do is something you have chosen to do. Some people don't want to believe that. But if you're over age twenty-one, your life is what you're making of it. To change your life, you need to change your priorities.
John C. Maxwell
The self is not something ready-made, but something in continuous formation through choice of action.
John Dewey:
Politics is not the art of the possible. It consists in choosing between the disastrous and the unpalatable.
John Kenneth Galbraith
By the choices and acts of our lives, we create the person that we are and the faces that we wear. By the choices and acts of our lives we give to the world wherein our lives are lived, hoping that our neighbors will find our contributions to be of worth, and hoping that the world will be a little more gracious for our time in it.
Kenneth Patton (Adapted)
When motherhood becomes the fruit of a deep yearning, not the result of ignorance or accident, its children will become the foundation of a new race.
Margaret Sanger
The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Consciously or unconsciously we all strive to make the kind of a world we like.
Oliver Wendell Holmes
I can resist everything except temptation.
Oscar Wilde
The power of choosing good and evil is within the reach of all.
Origen
Decision is a risk rooted in the courage of being free.
Paul Tillich
Only within the moment of time represented by the present century has one species -- man -- acquired significant power to alter the nature of his world.
Rachel Carson
Abraham Lincoln did not go to Gettysburg having commissioned a poll to find out what would sell in Gettysburg. There were no people with percentages for him, cautioning him about this group or that group or what they found in exit polls a year earlier. When will we have the courage of Lincoln?
Robert Coles
Liberty, taking the word in its concrete sense, consists in the ability to choose.
Simone Weil
All too often arrogance accompanies strength, and we must never assume that justice is on the side of the strong. The use of power must always be accompanied by moral choice.
Theodore Bikel
If particular care and attention is not paid to the ladies, we are determined to foment a rebellion, and will not hold ourselves bound by any laws in which we have no voice or representation.
Abigail Adams
I regard class differences as contrary to justice and, in the last resort, based on force.
Albert Einstein
The fundamental rights of [humanity] are, first: the right of habitation; second, the right to move freely; third, the right to the soil and subsoil, and to the use of it; fourth, the right of freedom of labor and of exchange; fifth, the right to justice; sixth, the right to live within a natural national organization; and seventh, the right to education.
Albert Schweitzer
... the 20th century has been characterized by three developments of great political importance: The growth of democracy, the growth of corporate power, and the growth of corporate propaganda as a means of protecting corporate power against democracy. Australian social scientist, quoted by Noam Chomsky in World Orders Old and
Alex Carey
The master's tools will never dismantle the master's house. They may allow us temporarily to beat him at his own game, but they will never allow us to bring about genuine change.
Audre Lorde
Fear is not the natural state of civilized people.
Aung San Suu Kyi
The first principal of nonviolent action is that of noncooperation with everything humiliating.
Cesar Chavez
We've got to take back the ideal of justice, we've got to take back this principle of human dignity. We've got to take it back from vengeance, from hatred, we've got to say: look, we're all in this together. We are human beings.
David Kaczynski
When I give food to the poor, they call me a saint. When I ask why the poor have no food, they call me a communist.
Dom Helder Camara
The only way to make sure people you agree with can speak is to support the rights of people you don't agree with.
Eleanor Holmes Norton
This is the duty of our generation as we enter the twenty-first century -- solidarity with the weak, the persecuted, the lonely, the sick, and those in despair. It is expressed by the desire to give a noble and humanizing meaning to a community in which all members will define themselves not by their own identity but by that of others.
Elie Wiesel
Now my friends, I am opposed to the system of society in which we live today, not because I lack the natural equipment to do for myself but because I am not satisfied to make myself comfortable knowing that there are thousands of my fellow men who suffer for the barest necessities of life. We were taught under the old ethic that man's business on this earth was to look out for himself. That was the ethic of the jungle; the ethic of the wild beast. Take care of yourself, no matter what may become of your fellow man. Thousands of years ago the question was asked; ''Am I my brother's keeper?'' That question has never yet been answered in a way that is satisfactory to civilized society. Yes, I am my brother's keeper. I am under a moral obligation to him that is inspired, not by any maudlin sentimentality but by the higher duty I owe myself. What would you think me if I were capable of seating myself at a table and gorging myself with food and saw about me the children of my fellow beings starving to death. 1908 speech
Eugene V. Debs
Peace, in the sense of the absence of war, is of little value to someone who is dying of hunger or cold. It will not remove the pain of torture inflicted on a prisoner of conscience. It does not comfort those who have lost their loved ones in floods caused by senseless deforestation in a neighboring country. Peace can only last where human rights are respected, where the people are fed, and where individuals and nations are free.
H.H. The Dalai Lama
A good motivation is what is needed: compassion without dogmatism, without complicated philosophy; just understanding that others are human brothers and sisters and respecting their human rights and dignities. That we humans can help each other is one of our unique human capacities.
H.H. The Dalai Lama
I look forward confidently to the day when all who work for a living will be one with no thought to their separateness as Negroes, Jews, Italians or any other distinctions. This will be the day when we bring into full realization the American dream -- a dream yet unfulfilled. A dream of equality of opportunity, of privilege and property widely distributed; a dream of a land where men will not take necessities from the many to give luxuries to the few; a dream of a land where men will not argue that the color of a man's skin determines the content of his character; a dream of a nation where all our gifts and resources are held not for ourselves alone, but as instruments of service for the rest of humanity; the dream of a country where every man will respect the dignity and worth of the human personality.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
States are not moral agents, people are, and can impose moral standards on powerful institutions.
Noam Chomsky
The most effective way to restrict democracy is to transfer decision-making from the public arena to unaccountable institutions: kings and princes, priestly castes, military juntas, party dictatorships, or modern corporations.
Noam Chomsky
Washing one's hands of the conflict between the powerful and the powerless means to side with the powerful, not to be neutral.
Paulo Freire
You cannot make yourself feel something you do not feel, but you can make yourself do right in spite of your feelings.
Pearl S. Buck
Be as beneficent as the sun or the sea, but if your rights as a rational being are trenched on, die on the first inch of your territory.

Ultimately, America's answer to the intolerant man is diversity, the very diversity which our heritage of religious freedom has inspired.

Saul Alinsky
I shall be honored to go to jail. Under a dictatorship, the detention cell is a place of honor.
Senator Miriam Defensor Santiago
The care of human life and happiness, and not their destruction, is the first and only object of good government.
Thomas Jefferson
Genuine politics -- even politics worthy of the name -- the only politics I am willing to devote myself to -- is simply a matter of serving those around us: serving the community and serving those who will come after us. Its deepest roots are moral because it is a responsibility expressed through action, to and for the whole.
Vaclav Havel
At least two thirds of our miseries spring from human stupidity, human malice and those great motivators and justifiers of malice and stupidity, idealism, dogmatism and proselytizing zeal on behalf of religious or political idols.
Aldous Huxley
If you want to build a ship, don't herd people together to collect wood and don't assign them tasks and work, but rather teach them to long for the endless immensity of the sea
Antoine De Saint-Exupery
Apathy can be overcome by enthusiasm, and enthusiasm can only be aroused by two things: first, an ideal, with takes the imagination by storm, and second, a definite intelligible plan for carrying that ideal into practice.
Arnold Toynbee
Ideas are great arrows, but there has to be a bow. And politics is the bow of idealism.
Bill Moyers
Our ideals resemble the stars, which illuminate the night. No one will ever be able to touch them. But the men who, like the sailors on the ocean, take them for guides, will undoubtedly reach their goal.
Carl Schurz
For whereas the mind works in possibilities, the intuitions work in actualities, and what you intuitively desire, that is possible to you. Whereas what you mentally or \"consciously\" desire is nine times out of ten impossible; hitch your wagon to a star, or you will just stay where you are.
D. H. Lawrence
Don't bunt. Aim out of the ball park. Aim for the company of immortals.
David Ogilvy
Sanity may be madness but the maddest of all is to see life as it is and not as it should be.
Don Quixote
The only force that can overcome an idea and a faith is another and better idea and faith, positively and fearlessly upheld.
Dorothy Thompson
Years ago I recognized my kinship with all living things, and I made up my mind that I was not one bit better than the meanest on the earth. I said then and I say now, that while there is a lower class, I am in it; while there is a criminal element, I am of it; while there is a soul in prison, I am not free.

Never let your sense of morals get in the way of doing what's right.

We are not afraid to entrust the American people with unpleasant facts, foreign ideas, alien philosophies, and competitive values. For a nation that is afraid to let its people judge the truth and falsehood in an open market is a nation that is afraid of its people.

What's encouraging about meditation is that even if we shut down, we can no longer shut down in ignorance. We see very clearly that we're closing off. That in itself begins to illuminate the darkness of ignorance.
Pema Chodron
Ignorance is preferable to error, and he is less remote from the truth who believes nothing than he who believes what is wrong.
Thomas Jefferson
A long habit of not thinking a thing wrong gives it a superficial appearance of being right.
Thomas Paine
Education is a progressive discovery of our own ignorance.
Will Durant
If you have come to help me, you are wasting your time. But if you have come because your liberation is bound up with mine, then let us work together.
Lila Watson
The strongest bond of human sympathy outside the family relation should be one uniting working people of all nations and tongues and kindreds.
Abraham Lincoln
We were born to unite with our fellow men, and to join in community with the human race.
Cicero
You can only protect your liberties in this world by protecting the other man's freedom. You can only be free if I am free.
Clarence Darrow
With all their faults, trade unions have done more for humanity than any other organization of men that ever existed. They have done more for decency, for honesty, for education, for the betterment of the race, for the developing of character in men, than any other association of men.
Clarence Darrow
This is the duty of our generation as we enter the twenty-first century -- solidarity with the weak, the persecuted, the lonely, the sick, and those in despair. It is expressed by the desire to give a noble and humanizing meaning to a community in which all members will define themselves not by their own identity but by that of others.
Elie Wiesel
I never had much faith in leaders. I am willing to be charged with almost anything, rather than to be charged with being a leader. I am suspicious of leaders, and especially of the intellectual variety. Give me the rank and file every day in the week. If you go to the city of Washington, and you examine the pages of the Congressional Directory, you will find that almost all of those corporation lawyers and cowardly politicians, members of Congress, and mis-representatives of the masses -- you will find that almost all of them claim, in glowing terms, that they have risen from the ranks to places of eminence and distinction. I am very glad I cannot make that claim for myself. I would be ashamed to admit that I had risen from the ranks. When I rise it will be with the ranks, and not from the ranks.
Eugene V. Debs
There is one thing you have got to learn about our movement. Three people are better than no people.
Fannie Lou Hamer
If the workers took a notion they could stop all speeding trains; Every ship upon the ocean they can tie with mighty chains. Every wheel in the creation, every mine and every mill; Fleets and armies of the nation, will at their command stand still.
Joe Hill
If hard work were such a wonderful thing, surely the rich would have kept it all to themselves.
Lane Kirkland
In Germany they came first for the Communists, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Communist. Then they came for the Jews, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a trade unionist. Then they came for the Catholics, and I didn't speak up because I was a Protestant. Then they came for me, and by that time no one was left to speak up.
Martin Niemoller
I believe in the essential unity of all people and for that matter of all lives. Therefore, I believe that if one person gains spiritually, the whole world gains, and if one person falls, the whole world falls to that extent.
Mohandas K. Gandhi
My friends, it is solidarity of labor we want. We do not want to find fault with each other, but to solidify our forces and say to each other: \"We must be together; our masters are joined together and we must do the same thing.\

Anyone who believes exponential growth can go on forever in a finite world is either a madman or an economist
Kenneth Boulding
“There is no reason products and services could not be swapped directly by consumers and producers through a system of direct exchange – essentially a massive barter economy. All it requires is some commonly used unit of account and adequate computing power to make sure all transactions could be settled immediately. People would pay each other electronically, without the payment being routed through anything that we would currently recognize as a bank. Central banks in their present form would no longer exist – nor would money.”
– Mervyn King – Governor Of The Bank Of England
The higher levels of all forms of organization, whether commercial, political, or social, now form an interchangeable, cognitive elite interwoven into a mutually supportive complex with immense self–interest in preservation of existing hierarchical forms of organization and the ever–increasing concentration of power and wealth they bring.
Dee W. Hock - Founder And CEO Emeritus Of VISA U
“I have never yet had anyone who could, through the use of logic and reason, justify the Federal Government borrowing the use of its own money. ... I believe the time will come in this country when [the public] will actually blame you and me and everyone else connected with the Congress for sitting idly by and permitting such an idiotic system to continue.” —U.S. Rep. Wright Patman (1893–1976), Chair, House Committee on Banking and Currency
U.S. Rep. Wright Patman
Anyone who believes exponential growth can go on forever in a finite world is either a madman or an economist.

Give me control of a nation’s money system and I care not who creates the laws.

Who controls the food supply controls the people; who controls the energy can control whole continents; who controls money can control the world.

The new concept of money is that, to be sound and stable, and adequate, it must spring solely from the same source from which all wealth springs, namely—the people, and that, to effectively coordinate with our mass production system, the people must issue the money necessary to buy their production.
E.C. Riegel
Peer production is about more than sitting down and having a nice conversation… It’s about harnessing a new mode of production to take innovation and wealth creation to new levels.
Eric Schmidt, CEO-Google
It's time to change the entire international financial system that considers the dollar the key reserve currency. The world has changed.
Andrei Kostin, President and Chairman of Russia's VTB Bank
The fact is that the usury-based, debt-money system must at some point come to an end, either through sudden collapse or gradual disintegration and replacement. Our job is to prepare and demonstrate the replacement, hopefully before the situation becomes critical. That replacement should be fair and equitable, sustainable, decentralized, and under popular control. That means reclaiming the credit commons and creating private currencies based on local production and local credit clearing exchanges that are networked globally.

I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated Governments in the civilized world no longer a Government by free opinion, no longer a Government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a Government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men. ~ Woodrow Wilson about his signing of the Federal Reserve in 1913
Woodrow Wilson
As a result of war, corporations have been enthroned and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until all wealth is aggregated in a few hands, and the Republic is destroyed. I feel at this moment more anxiety for the safety of my country than ever before, even in the midst of war. God grant that my suspicions may prove groundless. Abraham Lincoln, U.S. President (1861-1865) In a letter to Col. William F. Elkins dated Nov. 21, 1864,
Abraham Lincoln
Whoever controls the volume of money in any country is absolute master of all industry and commerce.
William McKinley, President (1901)
Banking was conceived in iniquity and was born of sin. The Bankers own the earth. Take it away from them, but leave them the power to create deposits, and with the flick of a pen, they will create enough deposits to buy it back again. However, take it away from them, and all the great fortunes like mine will disappear, for this would be a happier and better world to live in. But, if you wish to remain the slaves of Bankers and pay the cost of your own slavery, let them continue to create deposits. — Sir Josiah Stamp, British civil servant, economist, and banker; Director of the Bank of England
Sir Josiah Stamp
History records that the money changers have used every form of abuse, intrigue, deceit, and violent means possible to maintain their control over governments by controlling the money and its issuance.
James Madison, fourth President of the United States
