What happened:

British House of Commons rejects woman's right to vote.

American Cancer Society was founded.

Income tax was first collected by the U.S. Government.

Canberra became the capital of Australia.

Rockefeller Foundation founded with initial donation of 100 Million dollars from John T. Rockefeller.

Oh, and this, from

"In the years before the Federal Reserve System was set up by Congress there was a movement that objected to money power in the United States being run by politics. “Politicians should not be in control of our money” was the cry. The clever central bankers used this discontent to justify taking over the checkbook of the United States. When the “Christmas Massacre” happened in 1913 and the Federal Reserve became reality, the power over our national checkbook passed from Congress to the owners of the twelve regional Federal Reserve Banks. The so-called Federal Reserve Board was established as the Congressional ombudsman to stand between those private banks and the Congress.

Our purpose here is not to examine the clever complexities used by the central bankers to remove power from Congress. Instead, we have a simple observation. Politicians are those who serve the People in Congress. “We the People” elect which politicians will serve us in Congress, and we delegate our power to that body. We expect politicians to do what we want them to do.

We do not elect bankers.

So, when the politicians in Congress heeded the cry that authority over money creation should not be held by “politicians,” what they really were deciding is that “We the People” should lose our control over money creation."
