The Dollar, Money or Debt Instrument?

Updated: May 20, 2022

The Federal Reserve Bank is a private corporation and they issue these notes to the U.S. Treasury, the treasury endorses it and it is backed by the Corporation of the United States' ability to tax the shit out of its citizens.

Our money is a debt instrument. If that spurred some interest, go dig, there's a lot to this.
