Unmasking Money Magick

How did the Central Banks arise in the Ancient World? They came together in the city of Venice, particularly after the capture and sacking of Constantinople in present-day Turkey during the Fourth Crusade in 1204. The bankers minted the bulk of the coinage used by most dukedoms and courts across Europe. These bankers also lent out money, relying on high-interest rates and corruption to control Europe’s dukes and nobles.

Eventually, the power brokers moved northward, first to Amsterdam, and ultimately taking up residence in London. The nobility enjoyed masked balls — the masquerades of the Baroque era — first popularized in Venice, but spreading rapidly to Paris, London and elsewhere. Edgar Allen Poe addressed these charades in his short mystery “The Masque of the Red Death.”

Here, anthropologist and author Robert Sepehr traces the evolution of these central bankers. They remain with us to this day, as evidenced by the Rothschilds’ surreal 1972 party at the Chateau de Ferrieres east of Paris, where guests including Salvador Dali and Audrey Hepburn wore antlers and grotesque masks. The assassinations of at least two American presidents — Abraham Lincoln and John F. Kennedy — are linked to this seditious clique and their endless intrigues.
