"When a government is dependent upon bankers for money, they and not the leaders of the government control the situation, since the hand that gives is above the hand that takes... Money has no motherland; financiers are without patriotism and without decency; their sole object is gain."
Napoleon Bonaparte, 1815
Usually, when there's a political revolt, the bankers' property remains untouched. However, Napoleon kicked the bankers out of France.
That's why Napoleon gained so many followers. He explained to people how they had been tricked.
The rest of Europe united to defeat Napoleon. After being kicked out of France, the bankers' branches in every other country financed a war against Napoleon.
International banks are stronger than governments. If the government in one country gets hostile to the banks' goals, then an invasion or overthrow is financed by the banks' branches in other countries.
