The original message of "The Wizard of Oz" was actually an ECONOMIC message. The yellow brick road was symbolic for a "GOLD-only" economic standard road which was much easier for the central bankers (financial wizards) to CONTROL since they owned most of it anyway and could MAKE ALL THE RULES (just as the hierarchy of the WCG makes all the rules). The Wizard of Oz was basically a metaphor for going to the GOLD-only standard. The GOLD-only standard allows the quantity of money to be controlled by banks, who can then create depressions, deflation, and inflation any time they want by making gold money scarce or plentiful. Then they could strip the assets from people. The land and goods could be bought for pennies on the dollar. No liquidity for trade to take place. But when you have bi-metalism, which is where you have both GOLD and SILVER circulating freely, not necessarily at a fixed ratio by government but what the market could decide, you have a much freer and safer system. No MONOPOLY. Dorothy’s shoes were originally SILVER in The Wizard of Oz and "Oz" is short for OUNCE.
Dorothy—naïve, young and simple—represents the American people. She is Everyman, led astray and seeking the way back home. Moreover, following the road of GOLD ONLY leads eventually to the Emerald City, which may symbolize the FRAUDULENT world of greenback PAPER MONEY that only pretends to have REAL value. (The tally sticks of England and the copper coins of Rome are other examples of FIAT currency.) It is ruled by a scheming politician (the Wizard) who uses publicity devices and tricks (TV, radio, printing press, tape recorders, etc) to fool the people into believing he is benevolent, wise, and powerful when really he is a selfish, evil humbug.
