library where any type of subject matter can be researched and observed as a means of allowing the newly literate population a way to test and use their literacy. The ultimate theme behind such an organization would focus on achieving and bringing forward a universal standard of living for humankind sustained and reinforced by a literate and educated humanity. The impetus of this organization would seek to bring humanity together beneath a flagship of ecumenical brotherhood and sisterhood insisting on the maximization of human potential. Of course, my main fear would be over coming corrupt governments and their cronies, but there are always ways around that. Initially, each literacy center can fall under the jurisdiction of its own sovereignty so that these obstacles can be overcome and there is also potential where the actual prevalence of the literacy center can host and facilitate the needs of refugees. At any rate, if I were wealthy, that is where I would start and I would call this multinational organization the
Non-Aligned Council for the Globally Literate Republic
; of course maybe that might be shorted for the purpose of public relations appeal. This is a general concept that can be applied to the entire world all under the alias of non-aligned humanitarian empowerment. Now, who wants to start writing checks?

In the end, any type of Federal Reserve System should be governed by a congressional body that democratically incorporates legislation into the management of banks. Of course, this system is not fool proof considering that constituents would need to elect representatives and a Federal Reserve shutdown would be much more catastrophic than that of the government. In regards to your main point I would have to agree with you; private banks should not have the ability to produce and distribute money out of thin air. There should be something that can reinforce the value of the issued currency in question. In my first response, I proposed using relevant contingencies of intellectual capital in addition to technological resources to reinforce the fiscal value of the issued currency; at the end of the day, there always needs to be some sort of collateral behind any form of wealth. There isn't wealth without collateral, it is just that simple. When our primordial ancestors used the barter system as primitive hunter gatherers they traded based on the collateral value of material objects/resources around them; of course, these
