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 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 1)
"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, 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 2) 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.
"We shall. . . establish huge monopolies, reservoirs of colossal riches [International Banking], 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.
"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 3)
"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.
"Whenever we encounter any nation which dares to oppose us, 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. "...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 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.
"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, 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. 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 4)
"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. 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. 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.
"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. 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.
"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.
"...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 little book).
1. 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)
2. 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, is 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.
