Why doesn't Poland, Russia or Japan open a bank that, you know, is nothing more than a place that processes payments instead of being a political tool of the elite? They'd make billions. They should also build hosting services and domain registrars to go along with it. Money would flow into their country like water.

Neither Russia nor Japan would do it because they have their own interests in controlling the economy. Poland might be plucky enough to try, but they'd wind up financially isolated.

I always wonder why we countries create systems where they can never do things independently. You'd think it would be a countries #1 priority. Make sure you have enough mines for resources, enough farms for food and enough skilled labor that you could survive independently with the necessities indefinitely. Exporting and importing should be afterthoughts, not the entire basis of your economy. It's not like the ancient Romans freaked out when the Native Americans boycotted their goods.

The goal here is to take down the people that hold half of all the money in the world and redistribute that money free market capitalist style.

That would only work locally though, and it probably already is. How could someone retrieve his money from a Russian bank if he is in the US, if not through a local bank?

Because that would be akin to accidentally shooting oneself in the back of the head...twice.

All of those places you mentioned have (((central banks))) which have a monopoly, it's not going to happen. Libya, under Gaddafi, tried to get away from a (((central bank))) and Gaddafi ended up getting murdered by means of multiple stab woulds to the asshole. King nigger and shillary dubbed it the arab spring because in their eyes it was "progress."
