To what extent are Americans worried about the fact that the Federal banking system is a private institution?

Is the privatisation of the Federal bank (to 10 stake holders) part of the American capitalist dream of freedom? To what extent does the general American public attribute the national debts of the U.S to abuses by the Federal bank? Is it abuse at all or is it in fact a justifiable part of American freedom? Do Americans think that it is, for any reason at all, justifiable to put a debt on every piece of currency that enters circulation? If the Federal bank was not a private institution, what would happen to America?

Closing Statement from Tom Britton

Thanks to everyone for your input. I look forward to seeing how far the central bankers will go before the majority of the general public starts realising what is going. I suspect all of us lot will be long gone by then, if it ever happens.

    Oct 20 2013: If the Federal bank was not a private institution, what would happen to America?

    America has PHD for "washing money". They can always find the way. And the whole world is hostage into that.
    They are controlling money flowing, and money,the artificial creation, make them free to make arificial crises.
    Sometimes I wonder whom do we owe, why,how...?
