  • The great jurist Sir Edward Coke, who lived from 1552 to 1634, has explained why the term mortgage comes from the Old French words mort, “dead,” and gage, “pledge.” It seemed to him that it had to do with the doubtfulness of whether or not the mortgagor will pay the debt.

    If the mortgagor does not, then the land pledged to the mortgagee as security for the debt “is taken from him for ever, and so dead to him upon condition. And if he doth pay the money, then the pledge is dead as to the mortgagee.”

  • What’s in a name?

    If they’d simply called them ‘dead pledges’ they might not have become so popular.

    They are slaves to the banksters, who know a lot about wealth creation – for themselves.

    Don’t call me a conspiracist – instead explain clearly and concisely why I am wrong.

    More powerful people than us will soon be looking for retribution.
