Quo Vadis, Quo Vadimus? The Royal “We”? We are not amused. Debased Currency and Sovereign Crises!

“He held up a one pound coin. “This piece of brass,” he said in a voice eerily reminiscent of Marlon Brando’s Don Corleone, “is one of your pounds. The famous pound. The backbone of your great empire.”

Then, in his other hand he held up another coin, a gold sovereign. “A hundred years ago this was your pound 7.32 grammes of pure gold.”

Gesturing with the brass, he said: “It took me 235 of these,” – he motioned with the sovereign – “to buy one of these”.

In other words, the purchasing power of the pound has fallen by 235 times in a hundred years.”

The actual origin of the printed phrase dates back to the 17th century Scottish Parliamentarian, Andrew Fletcher:

William Pitt made this statement:

“Let the American people go into their debt-funding schemes and banking systems, and from that hour their boasted independence will be a mere phantom.” He realized the maxim that Rothschilds laid down as fundamental: “Let us control the money of a country and we care not who makes its laws.”

“I said I knew a very wise man so much of Sir Christopher’s sentiment, that he believed if a man were permitted to make all the ballads he need not care who should make the laws of a nation, and we find that most of the ancient legislators thought that they could not well reform the manners of any city without the help of a lyric, and sometimes of a dramatic poet”.

Now, of whom is Fletcher speaking? Who is the “very wise man”? It is, of course, Sir Phillip Sydney (1554-1586), the English poet who came to completely dominate the court of Queen Elizabeth even though he was only in his 20s. Sydney is the one who originated the phrase “Let me make the ballads of a nation, and I care not who makes its laws.”


“A beastly ambition, which the gods grant thee t’attain to!
If thou wert the lion, the fox would beguile thee;
if thou wert the lamb, the fox would eat three:
if thou wert the fox, the lion would suspect thee,
when per adventure thou wert accused by the ass:
if thou wert the ass, thy dulness would torment thee,
and still thou livedst but as a breakfast to the wolf:
if thou wert the wolf, thy greediness would afflict thee,
and oft thou shouldst hazard thy life for thy dinner:
wert thou the unicorn, pride and wrath would confound thee
and make thine own self the conquest of thy fury:
wert thou a bear, thou wouldst be killed by the horse:
wert thou a horse, thou wouldst be seized by the leopard:
wert thou a leopard, thou wert german to the lion
and the spots of thy kindred were jurors on thy life:
all thy safety were remotion and thy defence absence.
What beast couldst thou be, that were not subject to a beast?
and what a beast art thou already, that seest not thy loss in transformation!”

“Old Copper Nose”

How close we are to the denouement. Lord of the Dance or Follow Davos Man.

“Today, the new Tower of Babel is the EU and all of its related Davos globalism. It is saturating the globe on all continents. It pretends to make the world a better place. It does no such thing.

This is the prevailing ideology of global elites and the institutions and machinery they deploy to make themselves gods—to maintain control over humanity.

Setting aside all tradition, all past custom, often rewriting history, and most notably, eradicating the nation-state and religions, these globalists and the crony capitalists and socialists who fund them and all their doings, seek one thing: the power to control.

Zbigniew Brzeziski, a Davosian if ever there was one, former national security advisor to President Carter, put it in his own book, Between Two Ages”,

America’s Role in the Technotronic Era:

“The technetronic era involves the gradual appearance of a more controlled society. Such a society would be dominated by an elite, unrestrained by traditional values. Soon it will be possible to assert almost continuous surveillance over every citizen and maintain up-to-date complete files containing even the most personal information about the citizen.”

Profitless usurer, why dost thou use So great a sum of sums,

yet canst not live? For having traffic with thy self alone,

Thou of thy self thy sweet self dost deceive:

Then how when nature calls thee to be gone,

What acceptable audit canst thou leave?


Monetary sovereignty is the power of the state to exercise exclusive legal control over its currency, broadly defined, by exercise of the following powers:

  • Legal tender – the exclusive authority to designate the legal tender forms of payment.[1]
  • Issuance and retirement – the exclusive authority to control the issuance and retirement of the legal tender.[2]

Incidence of monetary sovereignty[edit]

Currently, nations such as the USA and Japan, which have autonomous central banks exercise monetary sovereignty. On the other hand, the European Union nations within the Eurozone, have ceded much of their monetary sovereignty to the European Central Bank.[3]

Split tally

The most prominent and best recorded use of the split tally stick or “nick-stick”[6][7] being used as a form of currency[8] was when Henry I introduced the tally stick system in medieval England in around 1100. He would accept the tally stick only for taxes, and it was a tool of the Exchequer for the collection of taxes by local sheriffs (tax farmers “farming the shire”)[citation needed] for seven centuries.

The system of tally marks of the Exchequer is described in The Dialogue Concerning the Exchequer as follows:

The manner of cutting is as follows. At the top of the tally a cut is made, the thickness of the palm of the hand, to represent a thousand pounds; then a hundred pounds by a cut the breadth of a thumb; twenty pounds, the breadth of the little finger; a single pound, the width of a swollen barleycorn; a shilling rather narrower; then a penny is marked by a single cut without removing any wood.

The cuts were made the full width of the stick so that, after splitting, the portion kept by the issuer (the stock) exactly matched the piece (the foil) given as a receipt. Each stick had to have the details of the transaction written on it, in ink, to make it a valid record.[9]

Royal tallies (debt of the Crown) also played a role in the formation of the Bank of England at the end of the 17th century. In 1697, the bank issued £1 million worth of stock in exchange for £800,000 worth of tallies at par and £200,000 in bank notes. This new stock was said to be “engrafted”. The government promised not only to pay the Bank interest on the tallies subscribed but to redeem them over a period of years. The “engrafted” stock was then cancelled simultaneously with the redemption.[10]

The split tally of the Exchequer remained in continuous use in England until 1826, when the conditions required for activation of the Receipt of the Exchequer Act 1783 (23 Geo. 3. c. 82), the death of the last Exchequer Chamberlain, came about.[11] In 1834, following the passing of 4 Will. 4. c .15, tally sticks representing six centuries worth of financial records were ordered to be burned in two furnaces in the Houses of Parliament.[12] The resulting fire set the chimney ablaze and then spread until most of the building was destroyed.[8] This event was described by Charles Dickens in an 1855 article on administrative reform.[13]

Tally sticks feature in the design of the entrance gates to The National Archives at Kew.

The Great Debasement

Henry’s stockpiled testoons were covered in a thin layer of silver which had a tendency to wear off, particularly over the protruding nose of his portrait, revealing the copper underneath, so much so that Henry was nicknamed Old Coppernose.[4]
