A Quote by Thomas Paine on money, fiat currency, fraud, credit, value, debase, and moral

If anything had or could have a value equal to gold and silver, it would require no tender law; and if it had not that value it ought not to have such a law; and, therefore, all tender laws are tyrannical and unjust and calculated to support fraud and oppression.

Thomas Paine (1737 - 1809)
