The greatest legacy of the United States has been to declare sovereign authority over all powers requisite for nation state development: to develop national resources through strategic mining, infrastructure, and large scale water diversion and storage projects, to increase food production, to apply cutting edge scientific discoveries in the form of power, transportation, and industry, and above all, to create a national financial system which facilitates these aims.

The videos and articles on this page discuss the path to reclaim these sovereign powers, stretching from the first declaration of economic sovereignty by the Massachusetts Bay Colony, to the formation of the Constitutional Credit System of Alexander Hamilton, Robert Morris, Benjamin Franklin, and others, through to its revival by Abraham Lincoln and the new industrialization under Franklin Roosevelt.
