The Sumerian Swindle has twenty-one secret frauds. The Twenty-One Secret Frauds of the Sumerian Swindle are:
#1 All interest on the loan of money is a swindle.
#2 Collateral that is worth more than the loan, is the banker’s greatest asset.
#3 Loans rely on the honesty of the borrower but not the honesty of the lender.
#4 Loans of silver repaid with goods and not with silver, forfeit the collateral.
#5 The debtor is the slave of the lender.
#6 High morals impede profits, so debauching the Virtuous pulls them below the depravity of the moneylender who there-by masters them and bends them to his will.
#7 Monopoly gives wealth and power but monopoly of money gives the greatest wealth and power.
#8 Large crime families are more successful than lone criminals or gangs; international crime families are the most successful of all.
#9 Only the most ruthless and greedy moneylenders survive; only the most corrupt bankers triumph.
#10 Time benefits the banker and betrays the borrower.
#11 Dispossessing the People brings wealth to the dispossessor, yielding the greatest profit for the bankers when the people are impoverished.
#12 All private individuals who control the public’s money supply are swindling traitors to both people and country.
#13 All banking is a criminal enterprise; all bankers are international criminals, so secrecy is essential.
#14 Anyone who is allowed to lend-at-interest eventually owns the entire world.
#15 Loans to friends are power; loans to enemies are weapons.
#16 Labor is the source of wealth; control the source and you control the wealth, raise up labor and you can pull down kings.
#17 Kings are required to legitimatize a swindle but once the fraud is legalized, those very kings must be sacrificed.
#18 When the source of goods is distant from the customers, profits are increased both by import and
#19 Prestige is a glittering robe for ennobling treason and blinding fools; the more it is used, the more it profits he who dresses in it.
#20 Champion the Minority in order to dispossess the Majority of their wealth and power, then swindle the Minority out of that wealth and power.
