Just finished watching this documentary, titled, "The Money Masters (1996)": https://youtu.be/WVxWPkMXOmw
Great overview of the history and rise of central banks and the money masters, going all the way back to before Christ. Whoever controls the money, controls the world, and thus the money masters indeed have the greatest power and influence over world affairs.
While the solution proposed by Bill Stills would be better than what is now, the truly ethical and prosperous solution would be to free the market and allow individuals the freedom to choose what forms of money they'll trade with and the freedom to diversify their money holdings as they see fit.
This is definitely not a history lesson taught in public schools!
