The Secret Hand Of The Cult

CHAPTER THREE Part I

(Excerpts from the little book)*

"What has restrained the beasts of prey who are called men? What is it that has guided them so far? In ancient societies they were kept in line by brutal and blind force; after that, it was law. Law is the very same force, only disguised.

"...There was a time when faith ruled, but in our day, the power which has replaced the liberal rulers is the power of money.

"It makes no difference whether a government is exhausted by its own convulsions, or if its internal discord and strife allows its enemies to take it over - the result is the same. It is irretrievably lost: it is then in our power. The iron-fisted rule of money, which is entirely in our hands, holds out a straw to the government that it must, eventually, reach out and accept - for if it does not, it goes to the bottom.

"...There is nothing in common between politics and morality. Any ruler governed by morality will be unstable on his throne because he cannot be a skilled politician. Anyone wanting to rule over men must have three things. He must have cunning. He must also have ourselves, who are in the shade—that is, mostly invisible, thanks to the news media under our control. And, thirdly, he must utilize fantasy or make-believe. Great national qualities, like frankness and honesty, are destructive qualities in politics. They topple rulers from their thrones more effectively and more certainly than the most powerful enemy. Those qualities must be the attributes of kingdoms of the nations, but we must, under no circumstances, be guided by them.

"Our right to do what we desire lies in force. The word 'right' is an abstract illusion and cannot be proven by anything. The word means no more than: when you give me what I demand, it proves that I am stronger than you. [This was seen in the invasion of Iraq.]

"...Whenever there is a government that has poorly organized authority, and that has lost the personal nature of its laws and rulers because of liberalism's flood of so-called 'rights', I find that there is a new right. That is, it is our right to attack merely because we are the stronger. Also included in that right is to scatter to the winds, all existing forces of order and regulation; to reconstruct all institutions. We, then, also become the sovereign lord of those who gave up their rights of power, voluntarily, in their liberalism.

"In the present chaos caused by the tottering condition of all forms of power, our own power will be more invisible than any other. This is because it will remain invisible until it has gained so much strength that no cunning can possibly undermine it.

"...The citizens of nations are stupefied with alcohol and drugs; their youth have grown stupid on classic literature and novels, and from immorality learned at early ages. That immorality was taught to them by our special agents - teachers, mindless servants, governesses in the houses of the wealthy, by ecclesiastics and others; also by our women in the places of dissipation commonly used by the citizenry. I include in the last category, the so-called 'society ladies,' who are voluntary followers of the others in corruption and luxury. (See Note 1)

"The signature of our power is - force and make-believe [as in making believe that there are weapons of mass destruction in Iraq]. Only force conquers in political affairs, especially if it is concealed under the cloak of statesmanship. When governments do not want to lay down their crowns at the feet of the new power [the beast], we must respond with violence, cunning and make-believe [as with the present efforts against Iran. We make-believe that they are going to use their nuclear science for weapons]. These evils are the only means by which to attain the end, the good [the good being, for us to control everything in the world for our own glory and our own purposes]. Therefore we must not stop at bribery, deceit and treachery when they will help towards attaining our goals. In politics it is necessary to know how to seize the property of others without hesitation if that will win for us submission and sovereignty.

"Our State, marching along the path of peaceful conquest, has the right to replace the horrors of war by less noticeable and more satisfactory means. That is, by the sentences of death that are necessary to maintain the terror which leads to blind submission. Merciless justice and severity [as with the Branch Davidians] is the greatest strength in the State: not only for the sake of profit but also in the name of duty. For the sake of victory, we must keep to the program of violence and make-believe. In the name of squaring accounts or making things 'right', it is necessary to use severity and harshness that have the appearance of justice [as in Iraqi Freedom]. It is by this means that we shall bring all governments into subjection to our supergovernment [the United Nations]. When they know that we are merciless in exacting our form of justice, all disobedience will cease.

"Far back in ancient times we were the first to proclaim to the masses of the people the words 'Liberty, Equality, Fraternity'. Those words have been repeated many times since by stupid human parrots everywhere, who greedily take the bait. When they did that, they also eliminated the well-being of the world—that is, the true freedom of the individual which had, until then, been protected from the mindless mob. The would-be wise men of the nations, the so-called intellectuals, could not make anything out of those words in their abstractness. They did not note the contradiction of their meaning and how they related to each other. They did not see that in nature, there is no equality, and there cannot be freedom. They do not see that Nature herself has established inequality of minds, of characters, and capabilities. She has done this just as unchangeably as she has made everything else adhere to her laws. "...In all corners of the earth the words 'Liberty, Equality, Fraternity,' brought into our ranks whole legions who bore our banners with enthusiasm—all thanks to our blind agents. And all the time these words were cankerworms at work boring into the well-being of the nations, putting an end everywhere to peace, quiet, solidarity and destroying all the foundations of the nation states. As you will see later, this helped us triumph; it made it possible for us to get our hands on the real master card. ...On the ruins we have made of the natural and family line of ruling powers of the nations, we have set up the educated class to rule by the kingdom of money. To qualify to rule in this kingdom requires wealth, which we control, and knowledge which comes from the power of our learned elders.

"...That abstract illusion called freedom that we have used to infect the minds of the mob in all countries, we have used to convince them that they are the ones that choose their government. It has also enabled us to make the mindless mob think that they are the true owners of their country, and that their government is only their elected servant and can be replaced like a worn-out glove whenever they desire.

"It is precisely the idea that they think they can replace their representatives when they don't like what they are doing that has put them under our control. This has given into our hands the power to set up and replace so-called elected representatives, by our appointment because they can only vote for those who we put upon their ballot.

"It is exceedingly important for our purposes that whenever there are wars they should not result in one side or the other gaining territory. By doing this, war will become an economic tool that will cause the nations to whom we give assistance, to recognize our strength and dominance. This will result in putting the sides of the conflict at the mercy of our international organizations which possess millions of eyes, ever on the watch, and are under no one else's control or limitations, whatever. Our international right to govern will then wipe out the individual nations' rights. We will rule the nations in exactly the same way the nations rule their subjects—by an international form of civil law.

"We shall choose those to run the governments from among the public. The main qualification for these positions will be their willingness for unquestioning, servile obedience. They will not be persons trained in the art of government and will, therefore, easily become pawns in the hands of the men of learning and genius who will be their advisers. Those advisers will be specialists, bred and reared from early childhood to rule the affairs of the whole world. As you well know, these specialists of ours, in order to make them fit to rule, have been receiving all the information they need from our political plans. In addition, they learn from history and from closely observing current events. The nations are not guided by the practical use of unprejudiced historical observation as they should be but, rather, by a routine derived from a theory. They do this without any forethought or regard for the consequence or results [because they have not been taught to reason, but only to memorize]. Because of this we need not even consider them at all. Let them amuse themselves until it is too late, or go on looking for some new form of enterprising self-indulgence, or just live in the past on the memories of all they have accomplished and enjoyed. They will do this because we have persuaded them to accept their role. We have done this by convincing them that science or theory is the principle value system to which they should adhere. It is for this purpose that we continually use our control of the news media to arouse blind confidence in these theories. The intellectuals of the nations will puff themselves up with their knowledge. They will do this without any logical verification of those theories we present to them as fact [such as evolution or global warming]. They will then put into effect all the so-called scientific information available that our agents have cunningly pieced together for the purpose of educating their minds in the direction we want.

The Daily News

"...In the hands of the national governments today, the greatest force for moving the minds and thoughts of the people is the news media. The primary purposes of the news media are: to keep pointing out things that we want the people to believe are indispensable; to give voice to the complaints of the people; and to express and create discontent. It is in the news media that the illusionary triumph of freedom of speech begins to look as if it is real. But the nations have not known how to make use of this potent force, and it has fallen into our hands. Through the news media we have gained the power to influence and control the minds of the people, while remaining hidden. (See Note 2)

"Today I may tell you that we are only a few steps away from achieving our goal. There remains a small space to cross and the whole, long path we have trodden is now ready to close its cycle of the Symbolic Snake—that symbol that represents our people. When this ring closes, all the nation states...will be locked into its coil as in a powerful vice.

"The constitutional scales of balance in these days will shortly break down, for we have created them with a certain lack of accurate balance. This is causing them to oscillate continually until they wear through the pivot on which they turn. The nations are under the delusion that they have welded them strongly enough and they believe that the scales will eventually come into equilibrium.

"...In order to cause those who want power to misuse that power, we have set all forces in opposition to one another. This is breaking up their liberal tendencies towards independence. To accomplish this we have stirred up every form of individual ambition, we have armed all parties and we have set up official authority to be a target for all that ambition. We have made gladiatorial arenas out of the nations. In those arenas we have introduced a host of confused issues over which they may contend. Just a little more, and bankruptcy and disorder will be universal.

"All people are chained down to heavy toil by poverty [and debt] more firmly than they were ever chained by slavery and serfdom. A few, by some way or another, might free themselves, but we can handle them. However, they will never be free from desiring material possessions. We have included in the constitution certain rights that seem to the masses as fictitious and not real rights. All these so-called 'people's rights' can never really exist except in the thin vapor of an idea. An idea which can never be realized in practical life. What does a common laborer care who is bowed down under his heavy toil, crushed by his lot in life, if talkers get the right to babble and journalists get the right to scribble any nonsense right beside really genuine issues [in the guise of free speech]? Once the common man can gain nothing from the constitution except a few pitiful crumbs which we fling to him from our table in order to get him to vote for what we dictate—for men we place in power—he is our servant. To a poor man, the rights that he supposedly gained from political conservatism are no more than a bitter irony because he finds nothing but the necessity of toiling all day which never gives him the opportunity to exercise those rights. On the other hand, they actually rob him of all guarantee of a secure and regular income by making him dependent on labor strikes by his co-workers, or lockouts by his employer.

"...We now appear on the scene as apparent saviors of the common worker, saving him from this oppression by enrolling him in the ranks of our various forces fighting for imaginary civil liberties. The upper class, which enjoyed by law the labor of the workers, was interested in seeing that the workers were well fed, healthy and strong. We are interested in just the opposite—in the diminishment, the killing out of the nations. Our power is in the chronic...physical and mental weakness of the worker. What that results in is his being made the slave of our will, and he will not find in the authorities of his own society either the strength or energy to oppose us. Hunger, in whatever form it comes, causes money to rule over the worker more certainly than any aristocracy or the legal right of government.

"By creating poverty, whether imaginary or real, we, in turn, create an envy and hatred between those who have and those who have not. With that hatred and envy we shall control the mobs and use their hands to wipe out all those who hinder us in achieving our goals.

"When the hour strikes for our sovereign lord of all the world to be crowned, it is these same hands of the mob which will sweep away everything that might be a hindrance for him.

"...Because of the present state of public information that we have directed and developed, the people cherish a blind hatred towards all conditions which they consider above themselves, because they have no understanding of the meaning of class and condition. We have brought about this state of affairs by causing the people to blindly and ignorantly believe whatever the news media tells them.

"This hatred will be still further magnified by the effects of an economic crisis, which will stop dealings on the exchanges and bring industry to a standstill. With all the secret, underground methods available to us, and with the aid of money which is all in our control, we shall create a universal world crisis whereby we shall send mobs of workers into the streets, simultaneously in all countries. ...These mobs will rush with delight to shed the blood of those whom, in the simplicity of their ignorance, they have envied from childhood, and then will be able to loot their property. They will not be able to touch our property and families because we will know the moment the attacks will come and take appropriate measures. (See Note 3)

"...Because the common people see that all sorts of concessions and indulgences have been given to them in the name of freedom and equality, they come to imagine themselves to be sovereign lords and storm their way to power. But, naturally, like every other blind man who has come upon a host of stumbling blocks, they rush to find a guide. They have never had the sense to return to the former condition and have laid down their rightful power at our feet. Remember the French Revolution and how it was we who gave it the name of 'Great'—the secrets of its preparations are well known to us, for it was completely the work of our hands.

"Ever since that time we have been leading the peoples from one disenchantment to another. This has been done so that in the end they should turn even from us, in favor of that King whom we are preparing for the world.

"At the present day we are, as an international force, invincible. This is so because, if attacked by some nation, we are supported by others. It is the common, low nature of the nations to crawl on their bellies to force while, at the same time, being merciless towards weakness and faults and indulgent to crimes. They are unwilling to bear the contradictions of a free social system but are patient to the point of martyrdom when a bold dictator inflicts violence upon them. It is these qualities which are helping us on to independent power. The peoples of the nations will bear patiently under the abuses of a charismatic dictator things which they would have cut the heads of kings for doing.

"...It is explained by the fact that a cunning dictator, through his agents, will whisper to the peoples that these abuses inflicted upon them are actually inflicting injury upon the nations for the very highest good—that is—to secure the welfare of the peoples, the international brotherhood of them all, and their unity and equality of rights. Naturally, they do not tell the peoples that this unification must be accomplished only under our sovereign rule.

"And thus the people condemn the upright and acquit the guilty, and are persuaded ever more and more that they can do whatsoever they wish. Thanks to this state of things, the people are destroying every kind of stability and creating disorders at every step.

The Secret Hand Of The Cult

CHAPTER THREE Part II

WE MUST UNDERMINE FAITH

"...It is absolutely necessary for us to undermine all faith, to tear out of the minds of the nations the very principle of the Godhead and the Spirit, and to replace it with scientific and social calculations and material needs.

"In order to give the nations no time to think and realize what is going on, their minds must be diverted towards industry and trade. Thus, all the nations and peoples will be swallowed up in the pursuit of material gain. While deeply involved in this, they will not take note of their common foe. But again, in order that the communities of the nations may be finally disintegrated and ruined by their supposed freedom, we must place industry on the basis of speculation such as a stock market or commodities exchange. The result of that will be that whatever is taken out of the land by industry will be invested in speculation and thus will pass into our control. (See Note 4)

"By causing an intensified struggle for superiority and by the shocks we deliver to economic life, we will create, nay, have already created communities that are disenchanted, cold and heartless. Such communities will foster a strong revulsion towards the higher political and religion. Their only purpose is personal and material gain - money - which they will make into a veritable cult for the sake of those material delights which it can give.

"...We shall create a concentrated, centralized government in order to grip in our hands all the forces of the community. By using new laws, we shall rigidly and mechanically regulate all of the political life of our subjects. These laws will withdraw, one by one, all of the liberties and indulgences which have been permitted by the nations. Our government will be distinguished by a despotism of monumental proportions. This government will be in a position, at any moment and in every place, to wipe out any nations who oppose us by deed or word. Some will tell us that a despotism such as I am talking about will not fit in with the progress of these days, but I will prove to you that it will.

"...The art of controlling and directing the masses of people and individuals is done by means of cleverly presented theory and wording, by creating regulations to rule their lives and by many other means. The nations largely understand nothing about this art which belongs to the specialists of our administrative brain. We have been brought up on analysis, observation and delicacies of fine calculation and in this area we have no rivals - any more than we are rivaled in the creation of plans of political actions and solid unity. In this respect the Jesuits alone might have compared with us, but we have conspired to discredit them in the eyes of the unthinking, mindless citizenry. We have caused them to be an open and known organization while we have kept ours a secret—in the shade, as it were. However, it probably makes no difference to the world who is its sovereign lord, whether the head of Catholicism or our despot. But to us, the chosen people, it is very far from being a matter of indifference.

"...We have taken the personal and national desires of the nations and set them against each other. We have bred religious and race hatred into a huge growth in the course of the past twenty centuries. This is the reason why there is not any country, anywhere, that would rise up against us because they would not receive any support for it. Every one of them must bear in mind that any alliance against us would be quite unprofitable to them. We are too strong—there is no getting away from our power. The nations cannot even come to a small, private agreement without our secretly having a hand in it.

"...In this present age it is more important to disarm the peoples than to lead them into war; more important to use, for our advantage, the passions which have burst into flame than to quench their fire; more important to understand the ideas of others and then interpret them to suit our own purposes than to eradicate them. The central purpose of our directorate consists in this: to debilitate the public mind by criticism; to distract it from any serious considerations that are calculated to arouse resistance; to divert their minds to engage in conflicts whose issues are eloquently presented but hollow and meaningless.

"In all ages the peoples of the world, collectively and as individuals, have accepted words in the place of deeds because they are content with a show. They rarely pause to take notice whether promises are followed by performance, especially in the public arena; therefore, we shall establish institutions that are nothing more than show and will give eloquent 'proof' of beneficial progress.

"...In order to bring public opinion into our hands we must cause it to experience great bewilderment. This will be done by giving expression to so many contradictory opinions [through the media and the Internet], and for such a length of time, that the nations will become dazed in the confusion of the maze of voices. This will result in their realizing that the best thing is to have no opinion of any kind in political matters which the people and even their governments do not understand. Those things are only rightly understood by him who guides the public. This is the first secret.

"The second secret that is required for the success of our government is expressed in the following: to cause an increase of the national failings, habits, passions, conditions of civil life, so that it will be impossible for anyone to know what his place is in the resulting chaos. This will result in utter failure of the people to understand one another. This course of action will also serve us in another way, namely, to sow discord among all factions, to dislocate all organized forces which are still unwilling to submit to us, and to discourage any kind of personal initiative or enterprise which might hinder our progress in any way. There is nothing more dangerous than personal initiative. If it is directed by genius, such initiative can do more than can be done by millions of people among whom we have sown discord.

"We must direct the education of the nation's communities in such a way that whenever they encounter a situation requiring initiative they will throw up their hands in despair and impotence. The stress (See Note 5) and confusion which results when the freedom of one comes in conflict with the freedom of another drains the energies of both. From this conflict arise intense moral shocks, disenchantments and failures. By all these means we shall wear down the nations so effectively that they will be forced to offer us international power. That power will be of a nature that it will enable us, without violence, to gradually absorb all the national forces and power of the world. From that we will form our super-government [the United Nations]. In place of the ruling governments of today, we shall set up a rigidly controlled system which will be called the super-government [UN] Administration. Its hands will reach out in all directions like pruning shears and its organization will be of such colossal dimensions that it cannot fail to subdue all the nations of the world.

The Kingdom of Money

"We shall...establish huge monopolies, reservoirs of colossal riches [The World Bank], that even the large economies of the nations will depend on it to such an extent that they will go to the bottom together with the credit of the nations on the day after the political smash. You gentlemen here who are economists, just make an estimate of the significance of this combination. In every possible way we must develop the significance of our United Nations by representing it as the protector and benefactor of all those who voluntarily submit to us.

"The suitability of the nations as a political force is dead - we need not take it into account; but those who possess and exercise control over land can still be harmful to us. This is because they are self-sufficient due to the resources of the land on which they live or have control over. It is essential, therefore, for us at whatever cost to deprive them of their land. This goal will be best attained by increasing the pressures and burdens upon land—real property, by loading lands with debt [property taxes, environmental protection issues]. These measures will severely limit landholding and keep it in a state of humble and unconditional submission.

"...At the same time we must intensively patronize trade and industry. First place, however, must be given to speculation, that part which provides a controlling opposition to industry. An industry that is not deeply involved in speculation will multiply money in private hands and will serve to restore agriculture by freeing the land from indebtedness to the banks. What we want is that industry should drain off from the land both labor and money, and by means of speculation, transfer into our hands all the money of the world. This will throw all the nations into the ranks of the lower-class workers. Then the nations will bow down before us, if for no other reason than to get the right to exist.

"To complete the ruin of national industry we shall, in addition to speculation, add the lure of luxury which we have developed among the nations. We have created a greedy demand for luxury which is swallowing up everything [through artfully constructed advertising]. ...We shall raise the rate of wages which, however, will not bring any advantage to the workers, because at the same time, we shall stimulate inflation to bring about a rise in prices. ...We shall further very skilfully undermine the sources of production by stimulating the workers to drunkenness and making them think they are in control of everything. We shall accompany this with every effort to eradicate all national educated influences from the face of the earth. [This is sometimes accomplished by using assassination squads as those who are in Iraq presently.]

"It is important that the true meaning of what is happening should not be understood by the peoples or nations before the right time has come. In order to accomplish this we shall hide it under a pretended zealous motive of serving the working classes and the great principles of political economy. For these economic theories we are carrying on a strong program of propaganda. (See Note 6)

"The intensification of military armaments and the increase of police forces are all essential for the completion of the aforementioned plans. The end result which we seek is that in all nations of the world there should, other than ourselves, be only the masses of the common worker, a few millionaires devoted to our interests, police and soldiers. "We must create upheavals, discords and open hostility. By this we shall gain a double advantage. First off, we will be able to keep all countries under our control. They will submit to this control because they well know that we have the power to create disorders or to restore order whenever we like. All these countries are quite used to the fact that we possess the indispensable force of extortion [economic sanctions]. Secondly, by means of conspiracies and scheming we shall cause utter confusion by the strings we have tied into the cabinets of all nations. We have created these controls within the governments by means of political and economic treaties or loan obligations. In order to create all this discord and confusion of power, we must use great cunning and insight during negotiations and agreements. However, we shall use the opposite tactics of masking what we do under a cloak of honesty and compliancy using the 'official language' or jargon of government known as legal language. In this way, the peoples and governments, whom we have taught to look only at the outside of whatever we present to them and never examine it in depth, will still continue to accept us as the benefactors and saviors of the human race.

We Will Make War

"Whenever we encounter any nation which dares to oppose us [Serbia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran], we must be prepared to incite war and join with its neighbors against it; but if those neighboring countries should also venture to stand together against us, then we must create resistance by inciting a universal war [coalition of the willing]. "...We must force the national governments to act in the direction favored by our broad master plan which is already approaching its desired goal. This force will come in the form of public opinion which has been secretly shaped and molded by us through the means of that so-called 'Great Power' - the news media. That power is, with a few exceptions that may be disregarded, already entirely in our hands.

"...The representatives of the nations sign papers and treaties without bothering to understand them because they are only in their positions of service for either material gain or from ambition.

"...We shall surround our government with a whole world of economists, constellations of bankers, industrialists, capitalists and - the main thing - millionaires. The latter because in material substance every difference between parties or business transactions will be settled by sums of money.

"For a time, until conditions are safe for entrusting responsible posts in government to our brothers, we shall occupy them with persons whose past reputation has created a great alienation between them and the peoples. These will be individuals who, if they disobey our instructions, will face criminal charges or disappear. This threat will make them defend our interests to their last gasp because they know that the people, to whom they have been unfaithful in their past dealings, will not come to their aid.

"When working out our plans and principles in any particular country, you must pay attention to the character and social standards of the people and adhere to them. This must be done until such time as the people shall have been re-educated to our way of thinking. By approaching the people's social and moral standards with caution, you will see that not a decade will pass before the most stubborn character will change and we shall add yet another people to the ranks of those already subdued by us.

"...For us there is nothing to restrict or to limit the range of our activity. Our Super-Government [the U.N.] actually abides above and outside any laws. It would, therefore, be described more accurately by the energetic and forcible words—benevolent dictatorship. I am in a position to tell you, with a clear conscience, that at the proper time we, the lawgivers, shall execute judgment and sentence. We shall kill and we shall spare. We, as head of all our troops, are mounted on the steed of the leader. We rule by force of will because in our hands are the fragments of a once powerful system which we have conquered, and the weapons we have gathered from among the conquered peoples are limitless ambitions, burning greediness, merciless vengeance, hatred and malice.

"It is from us that the all-consuming terror[ism] proceeds. We have in our service persons of all opinions, of all doctrines. Included are those who desire to restore monarchies and kingships; those who would be leaders of the peoples by inciting them to discontent: socialists, communists, and utopian dreamers of every kind. We have harnessed them all to the task of serving our purposes. Each one of them, on his own, is boring away at the last remnants of authority and striving to overthrow all established form of order. By these acts, all nations and societies are in torture. They try to reason with the people to restore tranquillity and are ready to sacrifice everything for peace, but we will not give them peace until they openly acknowledge the United Nations and fully submit to it.

"Without much altering the existing laws, we have twisted their interpretations so as to make them contradict each other. We have succeeded in erecting great and magnificent results by perverting the laws. The first result was that the interpretations of the laws actually masked their true intent. Afterwards, those laws were entirely hid from eyes of the governments because it became impossible to make anything out of the tangled web of legislation.

"This is from where the theory of arbitration comes. You may say that the nations will rise up against us, guns in hand, if they guess what is going on before the time comes; but in the West we have established a plan of such appalling terror that the very stoutest hearts will tremble. The undergrounds, metropolitan transit systems whose subterranean corridors will, before the time comes, be driven under all the capitals, will be blown into the air with all their organizations and archives [an orchestrated terrorist attack of huge proportions].

"When we have accomplished our coup d'état, our grab of all political power, we will just tell the peoples, 'Everything has gone terribly bad. Everyone has been brought down by suffering, but we are merely destroying the causes of your torment which are nationalities, frontiers, differences of coinage and money. You can, of course, judge us prematurely, but would it be a righteous judgment if you have not given what we are offering you a fair chance?' This will result in the mob bearing us up in their hands and exalting us in unanimous triumph of hopes and expectations. 'Free' elections and voting, which we have made one of the means of our success, will set us on the throne of the world.

"...To bring this about, we must have everybody without distinction of class or qualification. This is the only way we can establish an absolute majority which cannot be gotten from educated property owners alone. In this way, we manage to give everyone a sense of self-importance and destroy in the nations the importance of the family and its educational value. It also eliminates the possibility of individual minds separating from our planned course. The mob [protesters], which is controlled by us, will not let them get any attention or even allow them to be heard if their opinions differ from our own. They will listen only to us because it pays them to obey and give us attention. In this way, we shall create a blind, mighty force which will never move in any direction without the guidance of our agents, the leaders of the mob. The people will submit to this regime because they will know that their income and all of their benefits depend upon these leaders.

"...These schemes will not turn existing institutions upside down just yet. They will only affect changes in their economy and consequently in the whole combined movement of their progress which will thus be directed along the paths laid down in our schemes.

"...When we introduced the poison of liberalism into the national organism, its whole political complexion underwent a change. States have been seized with a mortal illness—blood-poisoning. All that remains is to await the end of their death agony.

"...We ourselves shall tell presidents what their responsibility is. By that time, we shall be powerful enough so that we can disregard normal channels of action in carrying out our desires. We will make our personal puppet responsible for all of that. ....

"In order that our scheme may produce this result, we shall arrange elections in favor of those presidential candidates that have some dark, undiscovered stain in their past, some food for scandal. Then they will be trustworthy agents for the accomplishment of our plans. This 'trust' will come from fear of being exposed and from the natural desire everyone has who has risen to such political power, namely to retain the privileges, advantages and honor connected with the office of president. The chamber of deputies will elect presidents and provide cover and protection for them; but we shall take away from them the right to propose new legislation or to make changes in existing laws. This right will be surrendered to us by our puppet president. Naturally, the authority of the president will then become a target for every possible form of attack; however, we shall provide him with means of self-defense. That will take the form of the president's right to appeal to the people for their decision over the heads of their representatives. Of course he will be doing nothing more than appealing to that same blind bunch of slaves of ours—the majority of the mob or masses. Independent of this, we shall invest the president with the right of declaring a state of war [as was done in Iraq]. We shall justify this on the ground that the president as Commander in Chief of the armed forces must have the military at his disposal in case he must defend the new constitution which is his right to defend as its sworn representative. It is easy to understand that under these conditions, the key to the shrine of government will rest in our hands and no one, apart from ourselves, will ever direct the force of legislation. The president, at our direction, will make interpretations of existing laws that are vague enough to be twisted to say what we desire. He will also annul or make of none-effect those laws when we indicate to him the necessity of doing so. Besides this, he will have the right to propose temporary laws and even new directions in how the government works with the constitution. His justification for all of this he will give as the supreme welfare of the people and the nation. (See Note 7)

"By such measures we shall obtain the power of destroying little by little, step by step, all of the things we introduced into the constitutions in the first place. This will prepare for the transition to an unperceived abolition of every kind of constitution. When the time has come, we will turn every form of government into our despotism.

"The revelation of our dictator may actually come before the destruction of the constitution. The moment for this revelation will come when the peoples, utterly wearied by the unpredictability and incompetence of their political leaders - a matter for which we shall arrange - will clamor and cry, 'Away with them and give us one ruler over all the earth who will unite us and eliminate the causes of discord, frontiers, nationalities, religions and national debts who will give us peace and quiet which we cannot find with our present rulers and representatives.'

"You, yourselves know perfectly well that to cause the peoples of all nations to desire such a thing, it is absolutely necessary to cause trouble and discontent in the relationship between the people and their governments. It is critical that the people become exhausted with dissension, hatred, struggle, envy, even the use of torture, starvation, inoculation of diseases, and poverty—leaving the nations no other vision than to take refuge in our complete sovereignty which is the control of money and everything else. But if we give the nations of the world any breathing room, the moment we long for will likely never arrive.

"...The nations are a flock of sheep and we are their wolves. And you know what happens when the wolves get hold of the flock? There is another reason also why they will close their eyes to what we are doing; we shall keep promising to give them back all the liberties we have taken away as soon as we have quelled the enemies of peace and brought into control all of society. It is not wise to make any mention about how long they must be kept waiting for this return of their liberties. For what purpose then have we invented this whole policy and then grafted it into the minds of the nations without giving them any chance to examine its underlying meaning?

"...We shall deal with the news media in the following way: what is the part played by the news media today? It serves to excite and inflame those passions which are needed for our purposes, or else it serves the selfish goals of groups of individuals. It is often flat, dull and insipid, unjust, intellectually dishonest or even outright lying, and the majority of the public have no idea what purpose it really serves. We saddle and bridle the news media with a tight bit. We also do the same with all publications of the printing press because there would be no sense in ridding ourselves of attacks from the news media if we are still the target for newspapers, pamphlets and books.

"...No one shall get away with laying a finger on the glowing radiance of our reputation for government infallibility. The excuse for stopping any publication will be the alleged plea that it is agitating the public mind without reason or justification. Please take note of this, however: among those who will be making attacks upon us there will be organizations established by us; but they will attack only things that we have already decided to change. Not a single announcement will reach the public without our control. Even now, this is already true because all news items are received and disseminated by a few agencies covering all parts of the world [national and international news wire-services]. These agencies will then be already entirely ours and will give publicity only to what we dictate to them. If we have already conspired to possess and control the minds of the peoples and nations to such an extent that they all look at world events through the colored glasses we are placing over their eyes; if there is already not a single nation where there are any barriers for us to look into what national stupidity calls state secrets, what will our position be when we shall be acknowledged as the supreme lords of the world in the person of our leader who will be ruler of all the world?

"...Literature and journalism are two of the most important educational forces, therefore, our government will become proprietor of the majority of the journals and news media productions. This will neutralize the injurious influence of privately owned news media and publishers, and will put us in possession of the greatest influence upon the public mind. . . . If we allow ten journals not controlled by us to be published, we shall counteract them with thirty of our own and keep that ratio throughout. This, however, must never be suspected by the public. To accomplish this, all publications and productions put out by us will appear to give a variety of opposing viewpoints. They will be quite different from each other in appearance, political leanings and editorial opinions. This will create a confidence in us and attract unsuspicious opponents to us who will thus fall into our trap and be rendered harmless.

"...All of our newspapers and media productions will be of all possible complexions and viewpoints - aristocratic, conservative, liberal, revolutionary, some even advocating anarchy. Of course, these will only exist as long as the constitution exists. ...Like the Hindu idol, Vishnu, they will have a hundred hands and every one of them will have a finger on any one of the public opinions as necessary. When the pulse quickens, these hands will lead public opinion in the direction of our desire, for an excited patient loses all power of judgment and easily yields to suggestion. Those fools who will think they are repeating the opinion of a newspaper or media of their own camp, will actually be echoing our own opinion or any opinion that seems desirable for us [such as gay rights]. In the vain belief that they are following the party of their own ideals, they will in fact be following the flag which we hang out for them.

"In order to direct our news media and newspaper 'militia', we must take great and intricate care in organizing this matter. Under the title of central department of the News Media, we shall organize literary conventions. At these gatherings our agents will, secretly and unobtrusively, issue orders and watchwords of the day. They shall engage in controversial discussions on a superficial level, taking care not to touch the true substance of the matter. By this method, our organizations will carry on a sham fight with the official media. This will be done solely for the purpose of giving us the occasion to express ourselves in a more legitimate-looking manner than we could if we merely made some announcement of editorial opinion. That way it will appear as if we are defending truth, rather than just proclaiming it.

"These attacks upon us will also serve another purpose, namely, that our subject will be convinced of the existence of true freedom of speech and freedom of the press. It will also give our agents the opportunity to affirm that all organizations and individuals which oppose us are empty, vain, babblers since they are incapable of finding any substantial objections to our position.

"Methods of organization like these, invisible to the public eye, are perfectly effective and they are the best calculated to bringing public opinion and confidence to favor our government. Because of such methods we shall be in a position, when necessary, to excite the public mind or to tranquilize it concerning political questions. We can either persuade or confuse. We can accomplish this by publishing first truth then lies, facts or their contradictions, depending on how they will be received, to produce the public confusion that will finally result in the masses out of desperation, depending on us to tell them what to think. When doing this, we must always carefully feel our ground before stepping upon it. This will give us sure victory over our opponents because they do not have the various factions of the news media at their disposal by which they might give full expression to their views. We shall not even need to refute their opinions except on a very superficial level.

"...From all this, you will see that, by bringing the masses to agree with us, we are only helping the working of our machinery. It will also appear to you that it is not our actions but our words for which we seek approval. This is true because words are the true force by which we create and manipulate public opinion, and those words are constantly designed to convince the masses that all our purposes are founded in a hope on a conviction that we are serving the common good of the people.

"...In order that the masses themselves may not understand what is the truth about their lives, we further distract them with amusements, games, pastimes, and professional sports. ...Through the news media we shall propose competitions in art, in sports of all kinds—these interests will ultimately distract their minds from any issues in which we might have to oppose them. Because people will grow more and more mentally lazy and unused to forming their own opinions, they will begin to talk the same way as do we. They will do this because we alone shall be offering them new directions for thought...of course, we will do this using persons they will never suspect of being in league with us.

"The part now being played by the liberals, utopian dreamers, will finally be finished when our government is established. Till such time they will continue to be of use to us. Therefore we shall continue to direct their minds into all sorts of worthless concepts and ridiculous theories that appear to be new and progressive [such as alternative lifestyles]. We shall continue in this manner because we have had complete success in causing the brainless leaders of the nations to be dazzled with progress—thinking it is progress that is the sum of achievement. While they are so enraptured with it, there is absolutely no one among them that sees that beneath the cloak of progress there has been a departure from truth. They do not understand that truth is unchangeable and does not allow for progress in a manner that violates it. In this way, progress, like a false ideal, serves to obscure truth so that none may know it except us.

"...Who will ever suspect then that all these peoples were so perfectly stage managed by us according to our political plans? No one has so much as guessed at all of this in the course of many centuries.

"...Our philosophers will discuss all of the shortcomings of the various beliefs and religions of the nations, but no one will ever be able to discuss our faith from an accurate point of view. This is because it will be fully understood by no one but us—and we will never dare to betray its secrets.

"We shall at last definitely come into our kingdom by the aid of multiple coups d'tat arranged to occur everywhere on the same day. This will take place after we have demonstrated the worthlessness of all existing forms of government and the peoples have acknowledged that truth. We shall take great measures to assure that no such thing as a plot or a conspiracy will ever exist. For this purpose we shall kill, without mercy, all who dare to take up arms to oppose our coming into our kingdom. Any and every kind of new organization or institution that is anything like a secret society will also be punished with death. ...Decisions by our government will be final and without appeal.

"...Death is the inevitable end for everyone. It is better to bring it to those who hinder our affairs than to ourselves, who are the founders of this affair. We execute men in such a way that no one but we of the brotherhood will ever suspect it. Not even the victims themselves know of our death sentence and what is happening. They all just die when required and it appears as if from a normal kind of illness. Knowing this, even the brotherhood themselves dare not protest.

"...Under our influence the execution of the laws of the nations has been reduced to a minimum. The prestige and honor of the law has been destroyed by the liberal interpretations made in the courts. In the most important and fundamental legal affairs, judges make decisions the way we dictate to them. They see matters in only the light we shine upon them in order to run the national governments our way. While doing this, we do not appear to have any connection or anything in common with them. We alter their thinking by newspaper and media opinion or by many other means. . . . Even senators and those of higher administration accept our counsels. The purely animalistic mind of the nations is incapable of analysis and observation—and even less are they capable of the foresight necessary to see the end result of altering the presentations of certain questions.

"The true seal of ourselves as the chosen people and of our higher quality of humanity is clearly seen in the difference between our capability of thinking as opposed to the almost animal level on which the peoples of the nations think. Their eyes are open, but they see nothing though it is standing right in front of them. They invent nothing, unless perhaps material things. From this it is plain that nature herself has destined us to guide and rule the world.

"...Our absolute dictates will all be in logical, consecutive order. Therefore, in each one of our decrees our supreme will must and will be respected and unquestionably fulfilled. We will ignore all complainings and discontents of every kind and will destroy, to the very root, every act resulting from them. We shall do this with punishment of the most extreme nature [torture].

"In order to destroy all organized forces except our own, we shall emasculate the primary example of such organizations—the universities. This will be accomplished by reeducating them in a new direction. Their officials and professors will be prepared to do this by detailed secret programs of action. They will not be allowed to depart from these programs—not by one iota—without suffering the consequences. They will be appointed with special care and caution, and will be in a such position so as to be completely dependent upon our government.

"...For a long time we have taken great care to discredit the priesthood and religious leaders of the nations and, thereby, to ruin their mission on earth which, in these days, might still be a great hindrance to us. Day by day the influence of the clergy upon the peoples of the world is falling lower. Freedom of conscience has been declared everywhere so that now only a short time separates us from the moment of the complete wrecking of that Christian religion [mission accomplished]. As far as other religions are concerned, we shall have still less difficulty in dealing with them, but it would be premature to speak of this now. In the eyes of the peoples we shall place all ministers and clerics in such narrow frameworks that their influence will decrease as fast as it formerly increased.

"When the time comes, finally, to destroy the court of the Pope, the finger of an invisible hand will point the nations towards this court. However, when the nations begin to fling themselves upon it and attack, we shall come to its rescue in the guise of its defenders—this, of course, under the pretense of averting excessive bloodshed. By this diversion, we shall penetrate to its very bowels and we shall certainly never come out again until we have gnawed through and destroyed the entire strength of the place. Our king...will be the real pope of the universe, the patriarch of an international church.

"However, in the meantime, while we are reeducating the youth in new traditional religions—and afterward in our own—we shall not openly lay a finger on existing churches. We shall fight against them by criticism calculated to produce splits among them [this has been very effectively done by introducing the issue of gay rights, gay clergy and gay marriage].

"Generally speaking, then, our modern news media will continue to bring reproach and disrepute to national affairs, religions, ineptitude of governments, always using the most unprincipled terms of expression in order, by any means, to lower their prestige. This can only be done by the genius of our gifted tribe [and with the display of the comedian].

"...Increasing the rate of income taxes in direct proportion to how much a person earns will give us a broader revenue base. These present taxes serve our purposes for almost no other reason than to excite trouble and discontent among the nations.

"...We have created economic crises in the nations by no other means than the withdrawal of money from circulation. Huge amounts of money have lain stagnant, thereby depriving the nations of its use. They were then caused to have to continually apply for loans to those in control of that money. With the payment of interest, these loans then place a burden on the national finances making them the bond slaves of these various money accounts. The concentration of industry in the hands of powerful capitalists and out of the hands of small business owners, has drained away all entrepreneurial spirit from the peoples and also from the nations. ...It is a proof of the genius of the minds of the chosen ones that we have contrived to present the matter of loans to them in such a light that they have actually believed they are an advantage to them.

"When the proper time comes, we shall present to the nations the superiority of our ways, gained in the light of centuries of experience and experiments made by us on the nations." (End of excerpts from the little book, The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion).

FOOTNOTES

  1. It now may be noted that this order of things has worked quite effectively. In the days when this little book was written this corruption was spread by personal contact. These days it is expanded to include the movie and television industry which is rife with immorality and violence. All of this is inculcated to lead minds in that direction with the added effect of make-believe. Fantasy and unreal drama has well-nigh ended reasonable, clear thinking. (return)
  2. It may seem strange that a power can boast of so much control over men and leaders, but one need only to consider the difficulty that surrounds getting on the national ballot. Two major parties can manage to present their candidates before the public but even their image and message is formed by the news media which makes them whatever the dictators of the media decide. People are then left to vote for one of the two presented before them and either one of those chosen will do the will of the true power which remains hidden. The people then believe they have had the chance to elect a leader. The so-called freedom boasted of in this society is only freedom to do whatever the secret forces dictate. Men still remain locked into the slavery of debt and legal controls that make their "freedom" seem like mockery. (return)
  3. When men are in control of the wealth of the nation, they need not fear for their own riches. In October of 1987, the stock marked took a serious plunge. Many lost their entire retirement and savings. Yet, those in high places who know how to control financial markets were left untouched. The markets can be manipulated to bankrupt the little man while enriching the super rich. The speculative markets are only speculative for the unsuspecting. The final crash soon to come will be well planned and leave everyone destitute except those behind the scenes. (return)
  4. The news media, under the control of this new power, creates the general impression that the religious elements are somewhat ridiculous; that Christian ideals are for radicals and conservatives. At the same time, jobs, jobs, jobs are the watchwords. This, so mankind can lavish upon themselves the luxuries dangled before their unsuspecting minds. The television ads always show how happy the families are that can acquire some new thing. The ads show how new and wonderful products are attained by healthy, happy, well adjusted families. The population is hardly aware that all of this is to prepare them for their slavery and final destruction. (return)
  5. Initiative is a great barrier to the goals of the new order. For this reason, many conflicting laws and regulations, as well as policy in general, are promoted to exasperate individual initiative. Business will be best suited to large enterprises controlled by those behind the scenes. Small ventures requiring individual initiative often find themselves surrounded by many frustrating hindrances. These take the form of environmental "concerns," endangered species regulations, and the ever present competition from large corporate interests who are largely controlled by the new power. The goal is to bring everyone into humble submission to this new order of things. (return)
  6. This propaganda could be seen in the political and in the media during the push for the GATT and NAFTA treaties recently enacted by the nations. One need make no mistake about it, the secret forces get what they want no matter who apparently holds the reigns of power. (return)
  7. The president has power to change national conviction at will. One case in point was the issue over China's most favored nation status. For years the presidents argued against granting this status on the basis that China had a poor human rights record. The new order has no concern for human rights at all. This argument is merely a ploy for manipulation. The truth is that China was not cooperating economically. After China began to buckle under and enter into the financial scheme of the New World Order, President Clinton dropped the condition that China conform to any human rights requirements. The New World Order is concerned with money and control, not human rights. Another way in which this has been done is through Executive Orders. Presidents can form law in an instant of time. Finally, we have seen this perfectly done in the recent wire tapping order of the President. He does it for the public good. These things written here have been perfectly fulfilled by the present administration. Welcome to the real world. (return)
