by Victor E. Marsden)
author of this translation of the famous Protocols was himself a
victim of the Revolution. He had lived for many years in Russia
and was married to a Russian lady. Among his other activities in
Russia he had been for a number of years a Russian Correspondent
of the MORNING POST, a position which he occupied when the Revolution
broke out, and his vivid descriptions of events in Russia will still
be in the recollection of many of the readers of that Journal. Naturally
he was singled out for the anger of the Soviet. On the day that
Captain Cromie was murdered by Jews, Victor Marsden was arrested
and thrown into the Peter-Paul Prison, expecting every day to have
his name called out for execution. This, however, he escaped, and
eventually he was allowed to return to England very much of a wreck
in bodily health. However, he recovered under treatment and the
devoted care of his wife and friends. One of the first things he
undertook, as soon as he was able, was this translation of the Protocols.
Mr. Marsden was eminently well qualified for the work. His intimate
acquaintance with Russia, Russian life and the Russian language
on the one hand, and his mastery of a terse literary English style
on the other, placed him in a position of advantage which few others
could claim. The consequence is that we have in his version an eminently
readable work, and though the subject-matter is somewhat formless,
Mr. Marsden's literary touch reveals the thread running through
the twenty-four Protocols.
may be said with truth that this work was carried out at the cost
of Mr. Marsden's own life's blood. He told the writer of this Preface
that he could not stand more than an hour at a time of his work
on it in the British Museum, as the diabolical spirit of the matter
which he was obliged to turn into English made him positively ill.
Marsden's connection with the MORNING POST was not severed by his
return to England, and he was well enough to accept the post of
special correspondent of that journal in the suite of H.R.H., the
Prince of Wales on his Empire tour. From this he returned with the
Prince, apparently in much better health, but within a few days
of his landing he was taken suddenly ill, and died after a very
this work be his crowning monument! In it he has performed an immense
service to the English-speaking world, and there can be little doubt
that it will take its place in the first rank of the English versions
of "THE PROTOCOLS of the Meetings of the LEARNED ELDERS OF
the Protocols themselves little need be said in the way of introduction.
The book in which they are embodied was published by Sergyei Nilus
in Russia in 1905. A copy of this is in the British Museum bearing
the date of its reception, August 10, 1906. All copies that were
known to exist in Russia were destroyed in the Kerensky regime,
and under his successors the possession of a copy by anyone in Soviet
land was a crime sufficient to ensure the owner's of being shot
on sight. The fact is in itself sufficient proof of the genuineness
of the Protocols. The Jewish journals, of course, say that they
are a forgery, leaving it to be understood that Professor Nilus,
who embodied them in a work of his own, had concocted them for his
Henry Ford, in an interview published in the New York WORLD, February
17th, 1921, put the case for Nilus tersely and convincingly thus:
only statement I care to make about the PROTOCOLS is that they fit
in with what is going on. They are sixteen years old, and they have
fitted the world situation up to this time. THEY FIT IT NOW."
word "Protocol" signifies a precise gummed on to the front
of a document, a draft of a document, minutes of proceedings. In
this instance, "Protocol" means minutes of the proceedings
of the Meetings of the Learned Elders of Zion. These Protocols give
the substance of addresses delivered to the innermost circle of
the Rulers of Zion. They reveal the converted plan of action of
the Jewish Nation developed through the ages and edited by the Elders
themselves up to date. Parts and summaries of the plan have been
published from time to time during the centuries as the secrets
of the Elders have leaked out. The claim of the Jews that the Protocols
are forgeries is in itself an admission of their genuineness, for
they NEVER ATTEMPT TO ANSWER THE FACTS corresponding to the THREATS
which the Protocols contain, and, indeed, the correspondence between
prophecy and fulfillment is too glaring to be set aside or obscured.
This the Jews well know and therefore evade.
presumption is strong that the Protocols were issued, or reissued,
at the First Zionist Congress held at Basle in 1897 under the presidency
of the Father of Modern Zionism, the late Theodore Herzl.
has been recently published a volume of Herzl's "Diaries,"
a translation of some passages which appeared in the JEWISH CHRONICLE
of July 14, 1922. Herzl gives an account of his first visit to England
in 1895, and his conversation with Colonel Goldsmid, a Jew brought
up as a Christian, an officer in the English Army, and at heart
a Jew Nationalist all the time. Goldsmid suggested to Herzl that
the best way of expropriating the English aristocracy, and so destroying
their power to protect the people of England against Jew domination,
was to put excessive taxes on the land. Herzl thought this an excellent
idea, and it is now to be found definitely embodied in Protocol
above extract from Herzl's DIARY is an extremely significant bit
of evidence bearing on the existence of the Jew World Plot and authenticity
of the Protocols, but any reader of intelligence will be able from
his own knowledge of recent history and from his own experience
to confirm the genuineness of every line of them, and it is in the
light of this LIVING comment that all readers are invited to study
Mr. Marsden's translation of this terribly inhuman document.
here is another very significant circumstance. The present successor
of Herzl, as leader of the Zionist movement, Dr. Weizmann, quoted
one of these sayings at the send-off banquet given to Chief Rabbi
Hertz on October 6, 1920. The Chief Rabbi was on the point of leaving
for HIS Empire tour of H.R.H., the Prince of Wales. And this is
the "saying" of the Sages which Dr. Weizmann quoted: "A
beneficent protection which God has instituted in the life of the
Jew is that He has dispersed him all over the world." (JEWISH
GUARDIAN, Oct. 8, 1920.)
compare this with the last clause of but one of Protocol XI.
has granted to us, His Chosen People, the gift of dispersion, and
from this, which appears to all eyes to be our weakness, has come
forth all our strength, which has now brought us to the threshold
of sovereignty over all the world."
remarkable correspondence between these passages proves several
things. It proves that the Learned Elders exist. It proves that
Dr. Weizmann knows all about them. It proves that the desire for
a "National Home" in Palestine is only camouflage and
an infinitesimal part of the Jew's real object. It proves that the
Jews of the world have no intention of settling in Palestine or
any separate country, and that their annual prayer that they may
all meet "Next Year in Jerusalem" is merely a piece of
their characteristic make-believe. It also demonstrates that the
Jews are now a world menace, and that the Aryan races will have
to domicile them permanently out of Europe..
are the Elders?
is a secret which has not been revealed. They are the Hidden Hand.
They are not the "Board of Deputies" (the Jewish Parliament
in England) or the "Universal Israelite Alliance" which
sits in Paris. But the late Walter Rathenau of the Allgemeiner Electricitaets
Gesellschaft has thrown a little light on the subject and doubtless
he was in possession of their names, being, in all likelihood, one
of the chief leaders himself. Writing in the WIENER FREIE PRESSE,
December 24, 1912, he said:
hundred men, each of whom knows all the others, govern the fate
of the European continent, and they elect their successors from
the year 1844, on the eve of the Jewish Revolution of 1848, Benjamin
Disraeli, whose real name was Israel, and who was a "damped,"
or baptized Jew, published his novel, CONINGSBY, in which occurs
this ominous passage:
world is governed by very different personages from what is imagined
by those who are not behind the scenes."
he went on to show that these personages were all Jews.
that Providence has brought to the light of day these secret Protocols
all men may clearly see the hidden personages specified by Disraeli
at work "behind the scenes" of all the Governments. This
revelation entails on all white peoples the grave responsibility
of examining and revising AU FOND their attitude towards the Race
and Nation which boasts of its survival over all Empires.
I - "Agentur" and "The Political."
are two words in this translation which are unusual, the word "AGENTUR"
and "political" used as a substantive, AGENTUR appears
to be a word adopted from the original and it means the whole body
of agents and agencies made use of by the Elders, whether members
of the tribe or their Gentile tools.
"the Political" Mr. Marsden means, not exactly the "body
politic" but the entire machinery of politics.
II - The Symbolic Snake of Judaism.
III opens with a reference to the Symbolic Snake of Judaism. In
his Epilogue to the 1905 Edition of the Protocols, Nilus gives the
following interesting account of this symbol:
to the records of secret Jewish Zionism, Solomon and other Jewish
learned men already, in 929 B.C., thought out a scheme in theory
for a peaceful conquest of the whole universe by Zion. As history
developed, this scheme was worked out in detail and completed by
men who were subsequently initiated in this question. These learned
men decided by peaceful means to conquer the world for Zion with
the slyness of the Symbolic Snake, whose head was to represent those
who have been initiated into the plans of the Jewish administration,
and the body of the Snake to represent the Jewish people - the administration
was always kept secret, EVEN FROM THE JEWISH NATION ITSELF. As this
Snake penetrated into the hearts of the nations which it encountered
it undermined and devoured all the non-Jewish power of these States.
It is foretold that the Snake has still to finish its work, strictly
adhering to the designed plan, until the course which it has to
run is closed by the return of its head to Zion and until, by this
means, the Snake has completed its round of Europe and has encircled
it - and until, by dint of enchaining Europe, it has encompassed
the whole world. This it is to accomplish by using every endeavor
to subdue the other countries by an ECONOMICAL CONQUEST. The return
of the head of the Snake to Zion can only be accomplished after
the power of all the Sovereign of Europe has been laid low, that
is to say, when by means of economic crises and wholesale destruction
effected everywhere, there shall have been brought about a spiritual
demoralization and a moral corruption, chiefly with the assistance
of Jewish women masquerading as French, Italians, etc.. These are
the surest spreaders of licentiousness into the lives of the leading
men at the heads of nations. A map of the course of the Symbolic
Snake is shown as follows: - Its first stage in Europe was in 429
B.C. in Greece, where, about the time of Pericles, the Snake first
started eating into the power of that country. The second stage
was in Rome in the time of Augustus, about 69 B.C.. The third in
Madrid in the time of Charles V, in A.D. 1552. The fourth in Paris
about 1790, in the time of Louis XVI. The fifth in London from 1814
onwards (after the downfall of Napoleon). The sixth in Berlin in
1871 after the Franco-Prussian war. The seventh in St. Petersburg,
over which is drawn the head of the Snake under the date of 1881.
[This "Snake" is now being drawn through the Americas
and in the United States of America, it is been partially identified
as the "Counsel on Foreign Relations" (C.F.R.) and the
"Tri-Lateral Commission"]. All these States which the
Snake traversed have had the foundations of their constitutions
shaken, Germany, with its apparent power, forming no exception to
the rule. In economic conditions, England and Germany are spared,
but only till the conquest of Russia is accomplished by the Snake,
on which at present [i.e., 1905] all its efforts are concentrated.
The further course of the Snake is not shown on this map, but arrows
indicate its next movement towards Moscow, Kieft and Odessa. It
is now well known to us to what extent the latter cities form the
centuries of the militant Jewish race. Constantinople is shown as
the last stage of the Snake's course before it reaches Jerusalem.
(This map was drawn years before the occurrence of the "Young
Turk" - i.e., Jewish - Revolution in Turkey). den.
III. - The term "Goyim," meaning Gentile or non-Jews,
is used throughout the
and is retained by Mr. Mars.
....Putting aside fine phrases we shall speak of the significance
of each thought: by comparisons and deductions we shall throw light
upon surrounding facts.
What I am about to set forth, then, is our system from the two points
of view, that of ourselves and that of the GOYIM [i.e., non- Jews].
It must be noted that men with bad instincts are more in number
than the good, and therefore the best results in governing them
are attained by violence and terrorisation, and not by academic
discussions. Every man aims at power, everyone would like to become
a dictator if only he could, and rare indeed are the men who would
not be willing to sacrifice the welfare of all for the sake of securing
their own welfare.
What has restrained the beasts of prey who are called men? What
has served for their guidance hitherto?
In the beginnings of the structure of society, they were subjected
to brutal and blind force; after words - to Law, which is the same
force, only disguised. I draw the conclusion that by the law of
nature right lies in force.
Political freedom is an idea but not a fact. This idea one must
know how to apply whenever it appears necessary with this bait of
an idea to attract the masses of the people to one's party for the
purpose of crushing another who is in authority. This task is rendered
easier of the opponent has himself been infected with the idea of
freedom, SO-CALLED LIBERALISM, and, for the sake of an idea, is
willing to yield some of his power. It is precisely here that the
triumph of our theory appears; the slackened reins of government
are immediately, by the law of life, caught up and gathered together
by a new hand, because the blind might of the nation cannot for
one single day exist without guidance, and the new authority merely
fits into the place of the old already weakened by liberalism.
In our day the power which has replaced that of the rulers who were
liberal is the power of Gold. Time was when Faith ruled. The idea
of freedom is impossible of realization because no one knows how
to use it with moderation. It is enough to hand over a people to
self-government for a certain length of time for that people to
be turned into a disorganized mob. From that moment on we get internecine
strife which soon develops into battles between classes, in the
midst of which States burn down and their importance is reduced
to that of a heap of ashes.
Whether a State exhausts itself in its own convulsions, whether
its internal discord brings it under the power of external foes
- in any case it can be accounted irretrievable lost: IT IS IN OUR
POWER. The despotism of Capital, which is entirely in our hands,
reaches out to it a straw that the State, willy-nilly, must take
hold of: if not - it goes to the bottom.
Should anyone of a liberal mind say that such reflections as the
above are immoral, I would put the following questions: If every
State has two foes and if in regard to the external foe it is allowed
and not considered immoral to use every manner and art of conflict,
as for example to keep the enemy in ignorance of plans of attack
and defense, to attack him by night or in superior numbers, then
in what way can the same means in regard to a worse foe, the destroyer
of the structure of society and the commonwealth, be called immoral
and not permissible?
Is it possible for any sound logical mind to hope with any success
to guide crowds by the aid of reasonable counsels and arguments,
when any objection or contradiction, senseless though it may be,
can be made and when such objection may find more favor with the
people, whose powers of reasoning are superficial? Men in masses
and the men of the masses, being guided solely by petty passions,
paltry beliefs, traditions and sentimental theorems, fall a prey
to party dissension, which hinders any kind of agreement even on
the basis of a perfectly reasonable argument. Every resolution of
a crowd depends upon a chance or packed majority, which, in its
ignorance of political secrets, puts forth some ridiculous resolution
that lays in the administration a seed of anarchy.
The political has nothing in common with the moral. The ruler who
is governed by the moral is not a skilled politician, and is therefore
unstable on his throne. He who wishes to rule must have recourse
both to cunning and to make-believe. Great national qualities, like
frankness and honesty, are vices in politics, for they bring down
rulers from their thrones more effectively and more certainly than
the most powerful enemy. Such qualities must be the attributes of
the kingdoms of the GOYIM, but we must in no wise be guided by them.
Our right lies in force. The word "right" is an abstract
thought and proved by nothing. The word means no more than: Give
me what I want in order that thereby I may have a proof that I am
stronger than you.
Where does right begin? Where does it end?
In any State in which there is a bad organization of authority,
an impersonality of laws and of the rulers who have lost their personality
amid the flood of rights ever multiplying out of liberalism, I find
a new right - to attack by the right of the strong, and to scatter
to the winds all existing forces of order and regulation, to reconstruct
all institutions and to become the sovereign lord of those who have
left to us the rights of their power by laying them down voluntarily
in their liberalism.
Our power in the present tottering condition of all forms of power
will be more invincible than any other, because it will remain invisible
until the moment when it has gained such strength that no cunning
can any longer undermine it.
Out of the temporary evil we are now compelled to commit will emerge
the good of an unshakable rule, which will restore the regular course
of the machinery of the national life, brought to naught by liberalism.
The result justifies the means. Let us, however, in our plans, direct
our attention not so much to what is good and moral as to what is
necessary and useful.
Before us is a plan in which is laid down strategically the line
from which we cannot deviate without running the risk of seeing
the labor of many centuries brought to naught.
In order to elaborate satisfactory forms of action it is necessary
to have regard to the rascality, the slackness, the instability
of the mob, its lack of capacity to understand and respect the conditions
of its own life, or its own welfare. It must be understood that
the might of a mob is blind, senseless and unreasoning force ever
at the mercy of a suggestion from any side. The blind cannot lead
the blind without bringing them into the abyss; consequently, members
of the mob, upstarts from the people even though they should be
as a genius for wisdom, yet having no understanding of the political,
cannot come forward as leaders of the mob without bringing the whole
nation to ruin.
Only one trained from childhood for independent rule can have understanding
of the words that can be made up of the political alphabet.
A people left to itself, i.e., to upstarts from its midst, brings
itself to ruin by party dissension excited by the pursuit of power
and honors and the disorders arising therefrom. Is it possible for
the masses of the people calmly and without petty jealousies to
form judgment, to deal with the affairs of the country, which cannot
be mixed up with personal interest? Can they defend themselves from
an external foe? It is unthinkable; for a plan broken up into as
many parts as there are heads in the mob, loses all homogeneity,
and thereby becomes unintelligible and impossible of execution.
It is only with a despotic ruler that plans can be elaborated extensively
and clearly in such a way as to distribute the whole properly among
the several parts of the machinery of the State: from this the conclusion
is inevitable that a satisfactory form of government for any country
is one that concentrates in the hands of one responsible person.
Without an absolute despotism there can be no existence for civilization
which is carried on not by the masses but by their guide, whosoever
that person may be. The mob is savage, and displays its savagery
at every opportunity. The moment the mob seizes freedom in its hands
it quickly turns to anarchy, which in itself is the highest degree
Behold the alcoholic animals, bemused with drink, the right to an
immoderate use of which comes along with freedom. It is not for
us and ours to walk that road. The peoples of the GOYIM are bemused
with alcoholic liquors; their youth has grown stupid on classicism
and from early immorality, into which it has been inducted by our
special agents - by tutors, lackeys, governesses in the houses of
the wealthy, by clerks and others, by our women in the places of
dissipation frequented by the GOYIM. In the number of these last
I count also the so-called "society ladies," voluntary
followers of the others in corruption and luxury.
Our countersign is - Force and Make-believe. Only force conquers
in political affairs, especially if it be concealed in the talents
essential to statesmen. Violence must be the principle, and cunning
and make-believe the rule for governments which do not want to lay
down their crowns at the feet of agents of some new power. This
evil is the one and only means to attain the end, the good. Therefore
we must not stop at bribery, deceit and treachery when they should
serve towards the attainment of our end. In politics one must know
how to seize the property of others without hesitation if by it
we secure 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 sentences of death, necessary to maintain the terror
which tends to produce blind submission. Just but merciless severity
is the greatest factor of strength in the State: not only for the
sake of gain but also in the name of duty, for the sake of victory,
we must keep to the programme of violence and make-believe. The
doctrine of squaring accounts is precisely as strong as the means
of which it makes use. Therefore it is not so much by the means
themselves as by the doctrine of severity that we shall triumph
and bring all governments into subjection to our super-government.
It is enough for them to know that we are too merciless for all
disobedience to cease.
SHALL END LIBERTY
Far back in ancient times we were the first to cry among the masses
of the people the words "Liberty, Equality, Fraternity,"
words many times repeated since these days by stupid poll- parrots
who, from all sides around, flew down upon these baits and with
them carried away the well-being of the world, true freedom of the
individual, formerly so well guarded against the pressure of the
mob. The would-be wise men of the GOYIM, the intellectuals, could
not make anything out of the uttered words in their abstractedness;
did not see that in nature there is no equality, cannot be freedom:
that Nature herself has established inequality of minds, of characters,
and capacities, just as immutably as she has established subordination
to her laws: never stopped to think that the mob is a blind thing,
that upstarts elected from among it to bear rule are, in regard
to the political, the same blind men as the mob itself, that the
adept, though he be a fool, can yet rule, whereas the non-adept,
even if he were a genius, understands nothing in the political -
to all those things the GOYIM paid no regard; yet all the time it
was based upon these things that dynastic rule rested: the father
passed on to the son a knowledge of the course of political affairs
in such wise that none should know it but members of the dynasty
and none could betray it to the governed. As time went on, the meaning
of the dynastic transference of the true position of affairs in
the political was lost, and this aided the success of our cause.
In all corners of the earth the words "Liberty, Equality, Fraternity,"
brought to our ranks, thanks to our blind agents, whole legions
who bore our banners with enthusiasm. And all the time these words
were canker-worms at work boring into the well-being of the GOYIM,
putting an end everywhere to peace, quiet, solidarity and destroying
all the foundations of the GOYA States. As you will see later, this
helped us to our triumph: it gave us the possibility, among other
things, of getting into our hands the master card - the destruction
of the privileges, or in other words of the very existence of the
aristocracy of the GOYIM, that class which was the only defense
peoples and countries had against us. On the ruins of the eternal
and genealogical aristocracy of the GOYIM we have set up the aristocracy
of our educated class headed by the aristocracy of money. The qualifications
for this aristocracy we have established in wealth, which is dependent
upon us, and in knowledge, for which our learned elders provide
the motive force.
Our triumph has been rendered easier by the fact that in our relations
with the men, whom we wanted, we have always worked upon the most
sensitive chords of the human mind, upon the cash account, upon
the cupidity, upon the insatiability for material needs of man;
and each one of these human weaknesses, taken alone, is sufficient
to paralyze initiative, for it hands over the will of men to the
disposition of him who has bought their activities.
The abstraction of freedom has enabled us to persuade the mob in
all countries that their government is nothing but the steward of
the people who are the owners of the country, and that the steward
may be replaced like a worn-out glove.
It is this possibility of replacing the representatives of the people
which has placed at our disposal, and, as it were, given us the
power of appointment.
It is indispensable for our purpose that wars, so far as possible,
should not result in territorial gains: war will thus be brought
on to the economic ground, where the nations will not fail to perceive
in the assistance we give the strength of our predominance, and
this state of things will put both sides at the mercy of our international
AGENTUR; which possesses millions of eyes ever on the watch and
unhampered by any limitations whatsoever. Our international rights
will then wipe out national rights, in the proper sense of right,
and will rule the nations precisely as the civil law of States rules
the relations of their subjects among themselves.
The administrators, whom we shall choose from among the public,
with strict regard to their capacities for servile obedience, will
not be persons trained in the arts of government, and will therefore
easily become pawns in our game in the hands of men of learning
and genius who will be their advisers, specialists bred and reared
from early childhood to rule the affairs of the whole world. As
is well known to you, these specialists of ours have been drawing
to fit them for rule the information they need from our political
plans from the lessons of history, from observations made of the
events of every moment as it passes. The GOYIM are not guided by
practical use of unprejudiced historical observation, but by theoretical
routine without any critical regard for consequent results. We need
not, therefore, take any account of them - let them amuse themselves
until the hour strikes, or live on hopes of new forms of enterprising
pastime, or on the memories of all they have enjoyed. For them let
that play the principal part which we have persuaded them to accept
as the dictates of science (theory). It is with this object in view
that we are constantly, by means of our press, arousing a blind
confidence in these theories. The intellectuals of the GOYIM will
puff themselves up with their knowledge and without any logical
verification of them will put into effect all the information available
from science, which our AGENTUR specialists have cunningly pieced
together for the purpose of educating their minds in the direction
Do not suppose for a moment that these statements are empty words:
think carefully of the successes we arranged for Darwinism, Marxism,
Nietzsche-ism. To us Jews, at any rate, it should be plain to see
what a disintegrating importance these directives have had upon
the minds of the GOYIM.
It is indispensable for us to take account of the thoughts, characters,
tendencies of the nations in order to avoid making slips in the
political and in the direction of administrative affairs. The triumph
of our system of which the component parts of the machinery may
be variously disposed according to the temperament of the peoples
met on our way, will fail of success if the practical application
of it be not based upon a summing up of the lessons of the past
in the light of the present.
In the hands of the States of to-day there is a great force that
creates the movement of thought in the people, and that is the Press.
The part played by the Press is to keep pointing our requirements
supposed to be indispensable, to give voice to the complaints of
the people, to express and to create discontent. It is in the Press
that the triumph of freedom of speech finds its incarnation. But
the GOYIM States have not known how to make use of this force; and
it has fallen into our hands. Through the Press we have gained the
power to influence while remaining ourselves in the shade; thanks
to the Press we have got the GOLD in our hands, notwithstanding
that we have had to gather it out of the oceans of blood and tears.
But it has paid us, though we have sacrificed many of our people.
Each victim on our side is worth in the sight of God a thousand
To-day I may tell you that our goal is now only a few steps off.
There remains a small space to cross and the whole long path we
have trodden is ready now to close its cycle of the Symbolic Snake,
by which we symbolize our people. When this ring closes, all the
States of Europe will be locked in its coil as in a powerful vice.
The constitution scales of these days will shortly break down, for
we have established them with a certain lack of accurate balance
in order that they may oscillate incessantly until they wear through
the pivot on which they turn. The GOYIM are under the impression
that they have welded them sufficiently strong and they have all
along kept on expecting that the scales would come into equilibrium.
But the pivots - the kings on their thrones - are hemmed in by their
representatives, who play the fool, distraught with their own uncontrolled
and irresponsible power. This power they owe to the terror which
has been breathed into the palaces. As they have no means of getting
at their people, into their very midst, the kings on their thrones
are no longer able to come to terms with them and so strengthen
themselves against seekers after power. We have made a gulf between
the far-seeing Sovereign Power and the blind force of the people
so that both have lost all meaning, for like the blind man and his
stick, both are powerless apart.
In order to incite seekers after power to a misuse of power we have
set all forces in opposition one to another, breaking up their liberal
tendencies towards independence. To this end we have stirred up
every form of enterprise, we have armed all parties, we have set
up authority as a target for every ambition. Of States we have made
gladiatorial arenas where a lot of confused issues contend ....
A little more, and disorders and bankruptcy will be universal ....
Babblers, inexhaustible, have turned into oratorical contests the
sittings of Parliament and Administrative Boards. Bold journalists
and unscrupulous pamphleteers daily fall upon executive officials.
Abuses of power will put the final touch in preparing all institutions
for their overthrow and everything will fly skyward under the blows
of the maddened mob.
All people are chained down to heavy toil by poverty more firmly
than ever. They were chained by slavery and serfdom; from these,
one way and another, they might free themselves. These could be
settled with, but from want they will never get away. We have included
in the constitution such rights as to the masses appear fictitious
and not actual rights. All these so-called "Peoples Rights"
can exist only in idea, an idea which can never be realized in practical
life. What is it to the proletariat laborer, bowed double over his
heavy toil, crushed by his lot in life, if talkers get the right
to babble, if journalists get the right to scribble any nonsense
side by side with good stuff, once the proletariat has no other
profit out of the constitution save only those pitiful crumbs which
we fling them from our table in return for their voting in favor
of what we dictate, in favor of the men we place in power, the servants
of our AGENTUR ... Republican rights for a poor man are no more
than a bitter piece of irony, for the necessity he is under of toiling
almost all day gives him no present use of them, but the other hand
robs him of all guarantee of regular and certain earnings by making
him dependent on strikes by his comrades or lockouts by his masters.
The people, under our guidance, have annihilated the aristocracy,
who were their one and only defense and foster- mother for the sake
of their own advantage which is inseparably bound up with the well-being
of the people. Nowadays, with the destruction of the aristocracy,
the people have fallen into the grips of merciless money-grinding
scoundrels who have laid a pitiless and cruel yoke upon the necks
of the workers.
We appear on the scene as alleged saviours of the worker from this
oppression when we propose to him to enter the ranks of our fighting
forces - Socialists, Anarchists, Communists - to whom we always
give support in accordance with an alleged brotherly rule (of the
solidarity of all humanity) of our SOCIAL MASONRY. The aristocracy,
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 diminution, the KILLING
OUT OF THE GOYIM. Our power is in the chronic shortness of food
and physical weakness of the worker because by all that this implies
he is made the slave of our will, and he will not find in his own
authorities either strength or energy to set against our will. Hunger
creates the right of capital to rule the worker more surely than
it was given to the aristocracy by the legal authority of kings.
By want and the envy and hatred which it engenders we shall move
the mobs and with their hands we shall wipe out all those who hinder
us on our way.
WHEN THE HOUR STRIKES FOR OUR SOVEREIGN LORD OF ALL THE WORLD TO
BE CROWNED IT IS THESE SAME HANDS WHICH WILL SWEEP AWAY EVERYTHING
THAT MIGHT BE A HINDRANCE THERETO. (The Biblical "Anti-Christ?")
The GOYIM have lost the habit of thinking unless prompted by the
suggestions of our specialists. Therefore they do not see the urgent
necessity of what we, when our kingdom comes, shall adopt at once,
namely this, that IT IS ESSENTIAL TO TEACH IN NATIONAL SCHOOLS ONE
SIMPLE, TRUE PIECE OF KNOWLEDGE, THE BASIS OF ALL KNOWLEDGE - THE
KNOWLEDGE OF THE STRUCTURE OF HUMAN LIFE, OF SOCIAL EXISTENCE, WHICH
REQUIRES DIVISION OF LABOR, AND, CONSEQUENTLY, THE DIVISION OF MEN
INTO CLASSES AND CONDITIONS. It is essential for all to know that
OWING TO DIFFERENCE IN THE OBJECTS OF HUMAN ACTIVITY THERE CANNOT
BE ANY EQUALITY, that he, who by any act of his compromises a whole
class, cannot be equally responsible before the law with him who
affects no one but only his own honor. The true knowledge of the
structure of society, into the secrets of which we do not admit
the GOYIM, would demonstrate to all men that the positions and work
must be kept within a certain circle, that they may not become a
source of human suffering, arising from an education which does
not correspond with the work which individuals are called upon to
do. After a thorough study of this knowledge, the peoples will voluntarily
submit to authority and accept such position as is appointed them
in the State. In the present state of knowledge and the direction
we have given to its development of the people, blindly believing
things in print - cherishes - thanks to prompts intended to mislead
and to its own ignorance - a blind hatred towards all conditions
which it considers above itself, for it has no understanding of
the meaning of class and condition.
WILL BE SAFE
THIS HATRED WILL BE STILL FURTHER MAGNIFIED BY THE EFFECTS of an
ECONOMIC CRISES, which will stop dealing on the exchanges and bring
industry to a standstill. We shall create by all the secret subterranean
methods open to us and with the aid of gold, which is all in our
hands, A UNIVERSAL ECONOMIC CRISES WHEREBY WE SHALL THROW UPON THE
STREETS WHOLE MOBS OF WORKERS SIMULTANEOUSLY IN ALL THE COUNTRIES
OF EUROPE. These mobs will rush delightedly to shed the blood of
those whom, in the simplicity of their ignorance, they have envied
from their cradles, and whose property they will then be able to
"OURS" THEY WILL NOT TOUCH, BECAUSE THE MOMENT OF ATTACK
WILL BE KNOWN TO US AND WE SHALL TAKE MEASURES TO PROTECT OUR OWN.
We have demonstrated that progress will bring all the GOYIM to the
sovereignty of reason. Our despotism will be precisely that; for
it will know how, by wise severities, to pacificate all unrest,
to cauterize liberalism out of all institutions.
When the populace has seen that all sorts of concessions and indulgences
are yielded it, in the same name of freedom it has imagined itself
to be sovereign lord and has stormed its way to power, but, naturally
like every other blind man, it has come upon a host of stumbling
blocks. IT HAS RUSHED TO FIND A GUIDE, IT HAS NEVER HAD THE SENSE
TO RETURN TO THE FORMER STATE and it has laid down its plenipotentiary
powers at OUR feet. Remember the French Revolution, to which it
was we who gave the name of "Great": the secrets of its
preparations are well known to us for it was wholly the work of
Ever since that time we have been leading the peoples from one disenchantment
to another, so that in the end they should turn also from us in
favor of that KING-DESPOT OF THE BLOOD OF ZION, WHOM WE ARE PREPARING
FOR THE WORLD.
At the present day we are, as an international force, invincible,
because if attacked by some we are supported by other States. It
is the bottomless rascality of the GOYIM peoples, who crawl on their
bellies to force, but are merciless towards weakness, unsparing
to faults and indulgent to crimes, unwilling to bear the contradictions
of a free social system but patient unto martyrdom under the violence
of a bold despotism - it is those qualities which are aiding us
to independence. From the premier- dictators of the present day,
the GOYIM peoples suffer patiently and bear such abuses as for the
least of them they would have beheaded twenty kings.
What is the explanation of this phenomenon, this curious inconsequence
of the masses of the peoples in their attitude towards what would
appear to be events of the same order?
It is explained by the fact that these dictators whisper to the
peoples through their agents that through these abuses they are
inflicting injury on the States with the highest purpose - to secure
the welfare of the peoples, the international brotherhood of them
all, their solidarity 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, persuaded
ever more and more that it can do whatsoever it wishes. Thanks to
this state of things, the people are destroying every kind of stability
and creating disorders at every step.
The word "freedom" brings out the communities of men to
fight against every kind of force, against every kind of authority
even against God and the laws of nature. For this reason we, when
we come into our kingdom, shall have to erase this word from the
lexicon of life as implying a principle of brute force which turns
mobs into bloodthirsty beasts.
These beasts, it is true, fall asleep again every time when they
have drunk their fill of blood, and at such time can easily be riveted
into their chains. But if they be not given blood they will not
sleep and continue to struggle.
Every republic passes through several stages. The first of these
is comprised in the early days of mad raging by the blind mob, tossed
hither and thither, right and left: the second is demagogy from
which is born anarchy, and that leads inevitably to despotism -
not any longer legal and overt, and therefore responsible despotism,
but to unseen and secretly hidden, yet nevertheless sensibly felt
despotism in the hands of some secret organization or other, whose
acts are the more unscrupulous inasmuch as it works behind a screen,
behind the backs of all sorts of agents, the changing of whom not
only does not injuriously affect but actually aids the secret force
by saving it, thanks to continual changes, from the necessity of
expanding its resources on the rewarding of long services.
Who and what is in a position to overthrow an invisible force? And
this is precisely what our force is. GENTILE masonry blindly serves
as a screen for us and our objects, but the plan of action of our
force, even its very abiding-place, remains for the whole people
an unknown mystery.
SHALL DESTROY GOD
But even freedom might be harmless and have its place in the State
economy without injury to the well-being of the peoples if it rested
upon the foundation of faith in God, upon the brotherhood of humanity,
unconnected with the conception of equality, which is negated by
the very laws of creation, for they have established subordination.
With such a faith as this a people might be governed by a wardship
of parishes, and would walk contentedly and humbly under the guiding
hand of its spiritual pastor submitting to the dispositions of God
upon earth. This is the reason why IT IS INDISPENSABLE FOR US TO
UNDERMINE ALL FAITH, TO TEAR OUT OF THE MIND OF THE "GOYIM"
THE VERY PRINCIPLE OF GOD-HEAD AND THE SPIRIT, AND TO PUT IN ITS
PLACE ARITHMETICAL CALCULATIONS AND MATERIAL NEEDS.
In order to give the GOYIM no time to think and take note, their
minds must be diverted towards industry and trade. Thus, all the
nations will be swallowed up in the pursuit of gain and in the race
for it will not take note of their common foe. But again, in order
that freedom may once for all disintegrate and ruin the communities
of the GOYIM, we must put industry on a speculative basis: the result
of this will be that what is withdrawn from the land by industry
will slip through the hands and pass into speculation, that is,
to our classes.
The intensified struggle for superiority and shocks delivered to
economic life will create, nay, have already created, disenchanted,
cold and heartless communities. Such communities will foster a strong
aversion towards the higher political and towards religion. Their
only guide is gain, that is Gold, which they will erect into a veritable
cult, for the sake of those material delights which it can give.
Then will the hour strike when, not for the sake of attaining the
good, not even to win wealth, but solely out of hatred towards the
privileged, the lower classes of the GOYIM will follow our lead
against our rivals for power, the intellectuals of the GOYIM.
What form of administrative rule can be given to communities in
which corruption has penetrated everywhere, communities where riches
are attained only by the clever surprise tactics of semi-swindling
tricks; where looseness reigns: where morality is maintained by
penal measures and harsh laws but not by voluntarily accepted principles:
where the feelings towards faith and country are obligated by cosmopolitan
convictions? What form of rule is to be given to these communities
if not that despotism which I shall describe to you later? We shall
create an intensified centralization of government in order to grip
in our hands all the forces of the community. We shall regulate
mechanically all the actions of the political life of our subjects
by new laws. These laws will withdraw one by one all the indulgences
and liberties which have been permitted by the GOYIM, and our kingdom
will be distinguished by a despotism of such magnificent proportions
as to be at any moment and in every place in a position to wipe
out any GOYIM who oppose us by deed or word.
We shall be told that such a despotism as I speak of is not consistent
with the progress of these days, but I will prove to you that is.
In the times when the peoples looked upon kings on their thrones
as on a pure manifestation of the will of God, they submitted without
a murmur to the despotic power of kings: but from the day when we
insinuated into their minds the conception of their own rights they
began to regard the occupants of thrones as mere ordinary mortals.
The holy unction of the Lord's Anointed has fallen from the heads
of kings in the eyes of the people, and when we also robbed them
of their faith in God the might of power was flung upon the streets
into the place of public proprietorship and was seized by us.
LED BY LIES
Moreover, the art of directing masses and individuals by means of
cleverly manipulated theory and verbiage, by regulations of life
in common and all sorts of other quirks, in all which the GOYIM
understand nothing, belongs likewise to the specialists of our administrative
brain. Reared on analysis, observation, on delicacies of fine calculation,
in this species of skill we have no rivals, any more than we have
either in the drawing up of plans of political actions and solidarity.
In this respect the Jesuits alone might have compared with us, but
we have contrived to discredit them in the eyes of the unthinking
mob as an overt organization, while we ourselves all the while have
kept our secret organization in the shade. However, it is probably
all the same to the world who is its sovereign lord, whether the
head of Catholicism or our despot of the blood of Zion! But to us,
the Chosen People, it is very far from being a matter of indifference.
FOR A TIME PERHAPS WE MIGHT BE SUCCESSFULLY DEALT WITH BY A COALITION
OF THE "GOYIM" OF ALL THE WORLD: but from this danger
we are secured by the discord existing among them whose roots are
so deeply seated that they can never now be plucked up. We have
set one against another the personal and national reckonings of
the GOYIM, religious and race hatreds, which we have fostered into
a huge growth in the course of the past twenty centuries. This is
the reason why there is not one State which would anywhere receive
support if it were to raise its arm, for every one of them must
bear in mind that any agreement against us would be unprofitable
to itself. We are too strong - there is no evading our power. THE
NATIONS CANNOT COME TO EVEN AN INCONSIDERABLE PRIVATE AGREEMENT
WITHOUT OUR SECRETLY HAVING A HAND IN IT.
PER ME REGES REGNANT. "It is through me that Kings reign."
And it was said by the prophets that we were chosen by God Himself
to rule over the whole earth. God has endowed us with genius that
we may be equal to our task. Were genius in the opposite camp it
would still struggle against us, but even so, a newcomer is no match
for the old-established settler: the struggle would be merciless
between us, such a fight as the world has never seen. Aye, and the
genius on their side would have arrived too late. All the wheels
of the machinery of all States go by the force of the engine, which
is in our hands, and that engine of the machinery of States is -
Gold. The science of political economy invented by our learned elders
has for long past been giving royal prestige to capital.
Capital, if it is to co-operate untrammeled, must be free to establish
a monopoly of industry and trade: this is already being put in execution
by an unseen hand in all quarters of the world. This freedom will
give political force to those engaged in industry, and that will
help to oppress the people. Nowadays 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 flames than to
quench their fire: more important to eradicate them. THE PRINCIPLE
OBJECT OF OUR DIRECTORATE CONSISTS IN THIS: TO DEBILITATE THE PUBLIC
MIND BY CRITICISM; TO LEAD IT AWAY FROM SERIOUS REFLECTIONS CALCULATED
TO AROUSE RESISTANCE; TO DISTRACT THE FORCES OF THE MIND TOWARDS
A SHAM FIGHT OF EMPTY CLOQUENCE.
In all ages the people of the world, equally with individuals, have
accepted words for deeds, for THEY ARE CONTENT WITH A SHOW and rarely
pause to note, in the public arena, whether promises are followed
by performance. Therefore we shall establish show institutions which
will give eloquent proof of their benefit to progress.
We shall assume to ourselves the liberal physiognomy of all parties,
of all directions, and we shall give that physiognomy a VOICE IN
ORATORS WHO WILL SPEAK SO MUCH THAT THEY WILL EXHAUST THE PATIENCE
OF THEIR HEARERS AND PRODUCE AN ABHORRENCE OF ORATORY.
IN ORDER TO PUT PUBLIC OPINION INTO OUR HANDS WE MUST BRING IT INTO
A STATE OF BEWILDERMENT BY GIVING EXPRESSION FROM ALL SIDES TO SO
MANY CONTRADICTORY OPINIONS AND FOR SUCH LENGTH OF TIME AS WILL
SUFFICE TO MAKE THE "GOYIM" LOSE THEIR HEADS IN THE LABYRINTH
AND COME TO SEE THAT THE BEST THING IS TO HAVE NO OPINION OF ANY
KIND IN MATTERS POLITICAL, which it is not given to the public to
understand, because they are understood only by him who guides the
public. This is the first secret.
The second secret requisite for the success of our government is
comprised in the following: To multiply to such an extent national
failings, habits, passions, conditions of civil life, that it will
be impossible for anyone to know where he is in the resulting chaos,
so that the people in consequence will fail to understand one another.
This measure will also serve us in another way, namely, to sow discord
in all parties, to dislocate all collective forces which are still
unwilling to submit to us, and to discourage any kind of personal
initiative which might in any degree hinder our affair. THERE IS
NOTHING MORE DANGEROUS THAN PERSONAL INITIATIVE: if it has genius
behind it, such initiative can do more than can be done by millions
of people among whom we have sown discord. We must so direct the
education of the GOYIM communities that whenever they come upon
a matter requiring initiative they may drop their hands in despairing
impotence. The strain which results from freedom of actions saps
the forces when it meets with the freedom of another. From this
collision arise grave moral shocks, disenchantments, failures. BY
ALL THESE MEANS WE SHALL SO WEAR DOWN THE "GOYIM" THAT
THEY WILL BE COMPELLED TO OFFER US INTERNATIONAL POWER OF A NATURE
THAT BY ITS POSITION WILL ENABLE US WITHOUT ANY VIOLENCE GRADUALLY
TO ABSORB ALL THE STATE FORCES OF THE WORLD AND TO FORM A SUPER-GOVERNMENT
(European Common Market?). In place of the rulers of to-day we shall
set up a bogey which will be called the Super-Government Administration.
Its hands will reach out in all directions like nippers and its
organization will be of such colossal dimensions that it cannot
fail to subdue all the nations of the world.
We shall soon begin to establish huge monopolies, reservoirs of
colossal riches, upon which even, large fortunes of the GOYIM will
depend to such an extent that they will go to the bottom together
with the credit of the States on the day after the political smash.
You gentlemen here present who are economists, just strike an estimate
of the significance of this combination!
In every possible way we must develop the significance of our Super-Government
by representing it as the Protector and Benefactor of all those
who voluntarily submit to us.
The aristocracy of the GOYIM as a political force, is dead - We
need not take it into account; but as landed proprietors they can
still be harmful to us from the fact that they are self-sufficing
in the resources upon which they live. It is essential therefore
for us at whatever cost to deprive them of their land. This object
will be best attained by increasing the burdens upon landed property
- in loading lands with debts. These measures will check land- holding
and keep it in a state of humble and un-conditional submission.
The aristocrats of the GOYIM, being hereditarily incapable of contenting
themselves with little, will rapidly burn up and fizzle out.
SHALL ENSLAVE GENTILES
At the same time we must intensively patronize trade and industry,
but, first and foremost, speculation, the part played by which is
to provide a counterpoise to industry: the absence of speculative
industry will multiply capital in private hands and will serve to
restore agriculture by freeing the land from indebtedness to the
land banks. What we want is that industry should drain off from
the land both labor and capital and by means of speculation transfer
into our hands all the money of the world, and thereby throw all
the GOYIM into the ranks of the proletariat. Then the GOYIM will
bow down before us, if for no other reason but to get the right
To complete the ruin of the industry of the GOYIM we shall bring
to the assistance of speculation the luxury which we have developed
among the GOYIM, that greedy demand for luxury which is swallowing
up everything. WE SHALL RAISE THE RATE OF WAGES WHICH, HOWEVER,
WILL NOT BRING ANY ADVANTAGE TO THE WORKERS, FOR, AT THE SAME TIME,
WE SHALL PRODUCE A RISE IN PRICES OF THE FIRST NECESSARIES OF LIFE,
ALLEGING THAT IT ARISES FROM THE DECLINE OF AGRICULTURE AND CATTLE-BREEDING:
WE SHALL FURTHER UNDERMINE ARTFULLY AND DEEPLY SOURCES OF PRODUCTION,
BY ACCUSTOMING THE WORKERS TO ANARCHY AND TO DRUNKENNESS AND SIDE
BY SIDE THEREWITH TAKING ALL MEASURE TO EXTIRPATE FROM THE FACE
OF THE EARTH ALL THE EDUCATED FORCES OF THE "GOYIM."
IN ORDER THAT THE TRUE MEANING OF THINGS MAY NOT STRIKE THE "GOYIM"
BEFORE THE PROPER TIME WE SHALL MASK IT UNDER AN ALLEGED ARDENT
DESIRE TO SERVE THE WORKING CLASSES AND THE GREAT PRINCIPLES OF
POLITICAL ECONOMY ABOUT WHICH OUR ECONOMIC THEORIES ARE CARRYING
ON AN ENERGETIC PROPAGANDA.
The intensification of armaments, the increase of police forces
- are all essential for the completion of the aforementioned plans.
What we have to get at is that there should be in all the States
of the world, besides ourselves, only the masses of the proletariat,
a few millionaires devoted to our interests, police and soldiers.
Throughout all Europe, and by means of relations with Europe, in
other continents also, we must create ferments, discords and hostility.
Therein we gain a double advantage. In the first place we keep in
check all countries, for they will know that we have the power whenever
we like to create disorders or to restore order. All these countries
are accustomed to see in us an indispensable force of coercion.
In the second place, by our intrigues we shall tangle up all the
threads which we have stretched into the cabinets of all States
by means of the political, by economic treaties, or loan obligations.
In order to succeed in this we must use great cunning and penetration
during negotiations and agreements, but, as regards what is called
the "official language," we shall keep to the opposite
tactics and assume the mask of honesty and complacency. In this
way the peoples and governments of the GOYIM, whom we have taught
to look only at the outside whatever we present to their notice,
will still continue to accept us as the benefactors and saviours
of the human race.
We must be in a position to respond to every act of opposition by
war with the neighbors of that country which dares to oppose us:
but if these neighbors should also venture to stand collectively
together against us, then we must offer resistance by a universal
The principal factor of success in the political is the secrecy
of its undertakings: the word should not agree with the deeds of
We must compel the governments of the GOYIM to take action in the
direction favored by our widely conceived plan, already approaching
the desired consummation, by what we shall represent as public opinion,
secretly promoted by us through the means of that so-called "Great
Power" - THE PRESS, WHICH, WITH A FEW EXCEPTIONS THAT MAY BE
DISREGARDED, IS ALREADY ENTIRELY IN OUR HANDS.
We must arm ourselves with all the weapons which our opponents might
employ against us. We must search out in the very finest shades
of expression and the knotty points of the lexicon of law justification
for those cases where we shall have to pronounce judgments that
might appear abnormally audacious and unjust, for it is important
that these resolutions should be set forth in expressions that shall
seem to be the most exalted moral principles cast into legal form.
Our directorate must surround itself with all these forces of civilization
among which it will have to work. It will surround itself with publicists,
practical jurists, administrators, diplomats and, finally, with
persons prepared by a special super-educational training IN OUR
SPECIAL SCHOOLS (Rhode Scholars?). These persons will have consonance
of all the secrets of the social structure, they will know all the
languages that can be made up by political alphabets and words;
they will be made acquainted with the whole underside of human nature,
with all its sensitive chords on which they will have to play. These
chords are the cast of mind of the GOYIM, their tendencies, short-comings,
vices and qualities, the particularities of classes and conditions.
Needless to say that the talented assistants of authority, of whom
I speak, will be taken not from among the GOYIM, who are accustomed
to perform their administrative work without giving themselves the
trouble to think what its aim is, and never consider what it is
needed for. The administrators of the GOYIM sign papers without
reading them, and they serve either for mercenary reasons or from
We shall surround our government with a whole world of economists.
That is the reason why economic sciences form the principal subject
of the teaching given to the Jews. Around us again will be a whole
constellation of bankers, industrialists, capitalists and - THE
MAIN THING - MILLIONAIRES, BECAUSE IN SUBSTANCE EVERYTHING WILL
BE SETTLED BY THE QUESTION OF FIGURES.
For a time, until there will no longer be any risk in entrusting
responsible posts in our State to our brother-Jews, we shall put
them in the hands of persons whose past and reputation are such
that between them and the people lies an abyss, persons who, in
case of disobedience to our instructions, must face criminal charges
or disappear - this in order to make them defend our interests to
their last gasp.
In applying our principles let attention be paid to the character
of the people in whose country you live and act; a general, identical
application of them, until such time as the people shall have been
re-educated to our pattern, cannot have success. But by approaching
their application cautiously you will see that not a decade will
pass before the most stubborn character will change and we shall
add a new people to the ranks of those already subdued by us.
The words of the liberal, which are in effect the words of our masonic
watchword, namely, "Liberty, Equality, Fraternity," will,
when we come into our kingdom, be changed by us into words no longer
of a watchword, but only an expression of idealism, namely, into
"The right of liberty, the duty of equality, the ideal of brotherhood."
That is how we shall put it, - and so we shall catch the bull by
the horns ... DE FACTO we have already wiped out every kind of rule
except our own, although DE JURE there still remain a good many
of them. Nowadays, if any States raise a protest against us it is
only PRO FORMA at our discretion and by our direction, for THEIR
ANTI-SEMITISM IS INDISPENSABLE TO US FOR THE MANAGEMENT OF OUR LESSER
BRETHREN. I will not enter into further explanations, for this matter
has formed the subject of repeated discussions amongst us.
For us there are not checks to limit the range of our activity.
Our Super-Government subsists in extra-legal conditions which are
described in the accepted terminology by the energetic and forcible
word - Dictatorship. I am in a position to tell you with a clear
conscience that at the proper time we, the law-givers, shall execute
judgment and sentence, we shall slay 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 party, now vanquished by us. AND THE WEAPONS
IN OUR HANDS ARE LIMITLESS AMBITIONS, BURNING GREEDINESS, MERCILESS
VENGEANCE, HATREDS AND MALICE.
IT IS FROM US THAT THE ALL-ENGULFING TERROR PROCEEDS. WE HAVE IN
OUR SERVICE PERSONS OF ALL OPINIONS, OF ALL DOCTRINES, RESTORATING
MONARCHISTS, DEMAGOGUES, SOCIALISTS, COMMUNISTS, AND UTOPIAN DREAMERS
OF EVERY KIND. We have harnessed them all to the task: EACH ONE
OF THEM ON HIS OWN ACCOUNT IS BORING AWAY AT THE LAST REMNANTS OF
AUTHORITY, IS STRIVING TO OVERTHROW ALL ESTABLISHED FORM OF ORDER.
By these acts all States are in torture; they exhort to tranquility,
are ready to sacrifice everything for peace: BUT WE WILL NOT GIVE
THEM PEACE UNTIL THEY OPENLY ACKNOWLEDGE OUR INTERNATIONAL SUPER-GOVERNMENT,
AND WITH SUBMISSIVENESS (European Common Market??).
The people have raised a howl about the necessity of settling the
question of Socialism by way of an international agreement. DIVISION
INTO FRACTIONAL PARTIES HAS GIVEN THEM INTO OUR HANDS, FOR, IN ORDER
TO CARRY ON A CONTESTED STRUGGLE ONE MUST HAVE MONEY, AND THE MONEY
IS ALL IN OUR HANDS.
We might have reason to apprehend a union between the "clear-sighted"
force of the GOY kings on their thrones and the "blind"
force of the GOY mobs, but we have taken all the needful measure
against any such possibility: between the one and the other force
we have erected a bulwark in the shape of a mutual terror between
them. In this way the blind force of the people remains our support
and we, and we only, shall provide them with a leader and, of course,
direct them along the road that leads to our goal.
In order that the hand of the blind mob may not free itself from
our guiding hand, we must every now and then enter into close communion
with it, if not actually in person, at any rate through some of
the most trusty of our brethren. When we are acknowledged as the
only authority we shall discuss with the people personally on the
market, places, and we shall instruct them on questings of the political
in such wise as may turn them in the direction that suits us.
Who is going to verify what is taught in the village schools? But
what an envoy of the government or a king on his throne himself
may say cannot but become immediately known to the whole State,
for it will be spread abroad by the voice of the people.
In order to annihilate the institutions of the GOYIM before it is
time we have touched them with craft and delicacy, and have taken
hold of the ends of the springs which move their mechanism. These
springs lay in a strict but just sense of order; we have replaced
them by the chaotic license of liberalism. We have got our hands
into the administration of the law, into the conduct of elections,
into the press, into liberty of the person, BUT PRINCIPALLY INTO
EDUCATION AND TRAINING AS BEING THE CORNERSTONES OF A FREE EXISTENCE.
WE HAVE FOOLED, BEMUSED AND CORRUPTED THE YOUTH OF THE "GOYIM"
BY REARING THEM IN PRINCIPLES AND THEORIES WHICH ARE KNOWN TO US
TO BE FALSE ALTHOUGH IT IS THAT THEY HAVE BEEN INCULCATED.
Above the existing laws without substantially altering them, and
by merely twisting them into contradictions of interpretations,
we have erected something grandiose in the way of results. These
results found expression in the fact that the INTERPRETATIONS MASKED
THE LAW: afterwards they entirely hid them from the eyes of the
governments owing to the impossibility of making anything out of
the tangled web of legislation.
This is the origin of the theory of course of arbitration.
You may say that the GOYIM will rise upon us, arms in hand, if they
guess what is going on before the time comes; but in the West we
have against this a manoeuvre of such appalling terror that the
very stoutest hearts quail - the undergrounds, metropolitans, those
subterranean corridors which, before the time comes, will be driven
under all the capitals and from whence those capitals will be blown
into the air with all their organizations and archives.
To-day I begin with a repetition of what I said before, and I BEG
YOU TO BEAR IN MIND THAT GOVERNMENTS AND PEOPLE ARE CONTENT IN THE
POLITICAL WITH OUTSIDE APPEARANCES. And how, indeed, are the GOYIM
to perceive the underlying meaning of things when their representatives
give the best of their energies to enjoying themselves? For our
policy it is of the greatest importance to take cognizance of this
detail; it will be of assistance to us when we come to consider
the division of authority of property, of the dwelling, of taxation
(the idea of concealed taxes), of the reflex force of the laws.
All these questions are such as ought not to be touched upon directly
and openly before the people. In cases where it is indispensable
to touch upon them they must not be categorically named, it must
merely be declared without detailed exposition that the principles
of contemporary law are acknowledged by us. The reason of keeping
silence in this respect is that by not naming a principle we leave
ourselves freedom of action, to drop this or that out of it without
attracting notice; if they were all categorically named they would
all appear to have been already given.
The mob cherishes a special affection and respect for the geniuses
of political power and accepts all their deeds of violence with
the admiring response: "rascally, well, yes, it is rascally,
but it's clever! ... a trick, if you like, but how craftily played,
how magnificently done, what impudent audacity!" ...
GOAL - WORLD POWER
We count upon attracting all nations to the task of erecting the
new fundamental structure, the project for which has been drawn
up by us. This is why, before everything, it is indispensable for
us to arm ourselves and to store up in ourselves that absolutely
reckless audacity and irresistible might of the spirit which in
the person of our active workers will break down all hindrances
on our way.
WHEN WE HAVE ACCOMPLISHED OUR COUP D'ETAT WE SHALL SAY THEN TO THE
VARIOUS PEOPLES: "EVERYTHING HAS GONE TERRIBLY BADLY, ALL HAVE
BEEN WORN OUT WITH SUFFERING. WE ARE DESTROYING THE CAUSES OF YOUR
TORMENT - NATIONALITIES, FRONTIERS, DIFFERENCES OF COINAGES. YOU
ARE AT LIBERTY, OF COURSE, TO PRONOUNCE SENTENCE UPON US, BUT CAN
IT POSSIBLY BE A JUST ONE IF IT IS CONFIRMED BY YOU BEFORE YOU MAKE
ANY TRIAL OF WHAT WE ARE OFFERING YOU." ... THEN WILL THE MOB
EXALT US AND BEAR US UP IN THEIR HANDS IN A UNANIMOUS TRIUMPH OF
HOPES AND EXPECTATIONS. VOTING, WHICH WE HAVE MADE THE INSTRUMENT
WHICH WILL SET US ON THE THRONE OF THE WORLD BY TEACHING EVEN THE
VERY SMALLEST UNITS OF MEMBERS OF THE HUMAN RACE TO VOTE BY MEANS
OF MEETINGS AND AGREEMENTS BY GROUPS, WILL THEN HAVE SERVED ITS
PURPOSES AND WILL PLAY ITS PART THEN FOR THE LAST TIME BY A UNANIMITY
OF DESIRE TO MAKE CLOSE ACQUAINTANCE WITH US BEFORE CONDEMNING US.
TO SECURE THIS WE MUST HAVE EVERYBODY VOTE WITHOUT DISTINCTION OF
CLASSES AND QUALIFICATIONS, in order to establish an absolute majority,
which cannot be got from the educated propertied classes. In this
way, by inculcating in all a sense of self-importance, we shall
destroy among the GOYIM the importance of the family and its educational
value and remove the possibility of individual minds splitting off,
for the mob, handled by us, will not let them come to the front
nor even give them a hearing; it is accustomed to listen to us only
who pay it for obedience and attention. In this way we shall create
a blind, mighty force which will never be in a position to move
in any direction without the guidance of our agents set at its head
by us as leaders of the mob. The people will submit to this regime
because it will know that upon these leaders will depend its earnings,
gratifications and the receipt of all kinds of benefits.
A scheme of government should come ready made from one brain, because
it will never be clinched firmly if it is allowed to be split into
fractional parts in the minds of many. It is allowable, therefore,
for us to have cognizance of the scheme of action but not to discuss
it lest we disturb its artfulness, the interdependence of its component
parts, the practical force of the secret meaning of each clause.
To discuss and make alterations in a labor of this kind by means
of numerous votings is to impress upon it the stamp of all ratiocinations
and misunderstandings which have failed to penetrate the depth and
nexus of its plottings. We want our schemes to be forcible and suitably
concocted. Therefore WE OUGHT NOT TO FLING THE WORK OF GENIUS OF
OUR GUIDE to the fangs of the mob or even of a select company.
These schemes will not turn existing institutions upside down just
yet. They will only effect 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.
Under various names there exists in all countries approximately
one and the same thing. Representation, Ministry, Senate, State
Council, Legislative and Executive Corps. I need not explain to
you the mechanism of the relation of these institutions to one another,
because you are aware of all that; only take note of the fact that
each of the above-named institutions corresponds to some important
function of the State, and I would beg you to remark that the word
"important" I apply not to the institution but to the
function, consequently it is not the institutions which are important
but their functions. These institutions have divided up among themselves
all the functions of government - administrative, legislative, executive,
wherefore they have come to operate as do the organs in the human
body. If we injure one part in the machinery of State, the State
falls sick, like a human body, and ... will die.
When we introduced into the State organism the poison of Liberalism
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.
Liberalism produced Constitutional States, which took the place
of what was the only safeguard of the GOYIM, namely, Despotism;
and A CONSTITUTION, AS YOU WELL KNOW, IS NOTHING ELSE BUT A SCHOOL
OF DISCORDS, misunderstandings, quarrels, disagreements, fruitless
party agitations, party whims - in a word, a school of everything
that serves to destroy the personality of State activity. THE TRIBUNE
OF THE "TALKERICS" HAS, NO LESS EFFECTIVELY THAN THE PRESS,
CONDEMNED THE RULERS TO INACTIVITY AND IMPOTENCE, and thereby rendered
them useless and superfluous, for which reason indeed they have
been in many countries deposed. THEN IT WAS THAT THE ERA OF REPUBLICS
BECOME POSSIBLE OF REALIZATION; AND THEN IT WAS THAT WE REPLACED
THE RULER BY A CARICATURE OF A GOVERNMENT - BY A PRESIDENT, TAKEN
FROM THE MOB, FROM THE MIDST OF OUR PUPPET CREATURES, OR SLAVES.
This was the foundation of the mine which we have laid under the
GOY people, I should rather say, under the GOY peoples.
In the near future we shall establish the responsibility of presidents.
By that time we shall be in a position to disregard forms in carrying
through matters for which our impersonal puppet will be responsible.
What do we care if the ranks of those striving for power should
be thinned, if there should arise a deadlock from the impossibility
of finding presidents, a deadlock which will finally disorganize
the country? ...
In order that our scheme may produce this result we shall arrange
elections in favor of such presidents as have in their past some
dark, undiscovered stain, some "Panama" or other - then
they will be trustworthy agents for the accomplishment of our plans
out of fear of revelations and from the natural desire of everyone
who has attained power, namely, the retention of the privileges,
advantages and honor connected with the office of president. The
chamber of deputies will provide cover for, will protect, will elect
presidents, but we shall take from it the right to propose new,
or make changes in existing laws, for this right will be given by
us to the responsible president, a puppet in our hands. Naturally,
the authority of the presidents will then become a target for every
possible form of attack, but we shall provide him with a means of
self-defense in the right of an appeal to the people, for the decision
of the people over the heads of their representatives, that is to
say, an appeal to that some blind slave of ours - the majority of
the mob. Independently of this we shall invest the president with
the right of declaring a state of war. We shall justify this last
right on the ground that the president as chief of the whole army
of the country must have it at his disposal, in case of need for
the defense of the new republican constitution, the right to defend
which will belong to him as the responsible representative of this
It is easy to understand them in these conditions the key of the
shrine will lie in our hands, and no one outside ourselves will
any longer direct the force of legislation.
Besides this we shall, with the introduction of the new republican
constitution, take from the Chamber the right of interpolation on
government measures, on the pretext of preserving political secrecy,
and, further, we shall by the new constitution reduce the number
of representatives to a minimum, thereby proportionately reducing
political passions and the passion for politics. If, however, they
should, which is hardly to be expected, burst into flame, even in
this minimum, we shall nullify them by a stirring appeal and a reference
to the majority of the whole people ... Upon the president will
depend the appointment of presidents and vice-presidents of the
Chamber and the Senate. Instead of constant sessions of Parliaments
we shall reduce their sittings to a few months. Moreover, the president,
as chief of the executive power, will have the right to summon and
dissolve Parliament, and, in the latter case, to prolong the time
for the appointment of a new parliamentary assembly. But in order
that the consequences of all these acts which in substance are illegal,
should not, prematurely for our plans, upon the responsibility established
by use of the president, WE SHALL INSTIGATE MINISTERS AND OTHER
OFFICIALS OF THE HIGHER ADMINISTRATION ABOUT THE PRESIDENT TO EVADE
HIS DISPOSITIONS BY TAKING MEASURES OF THEIR OWN, for doing which
they will be made the scapegoats in his place ... This part we especially
recommend to be given to be played by the Senate, the Council of
State, or the Council of Ministers, but not to an individual official.
The president will, at our discretion, interpret the sense of such
of the existing laws as admit of various interpretation; he will
further annul them when we indicate to him the necessity to do so,
besides this, he will have the right to propose temporary laws,
and even new departures in the government constitutional working,
the pretext both for the one and the other being the requirements
for the supreme welfare of the State.
By such measure we shall obtain the power of destroying little by
little, step by step, all that at the outset when we enter on our
rights, we are compelled to introduce into the constitutions of
States to prepare for the transition to an imperceptible abolition
of every kind of constitution, and then the time is come to turn
every form of government into OUR DESPOTISM.
The recognition of our despot may also come before the destruction
of the constitution; the moment for this recognition will come when
the peoples, utterly wearied by the irregularities and incompetence
- a matter which we shall arrange for - of their rulers, will clamor:
"Away with them and give us one king over all the earth who
will unite us and annihilate the causes of disorders - frontiers,
nationalities, religions, State debts - who will give us peace and
quiet which we cannot find under our rulers and representatives."
But you yourselves perfectly well know that TO PRODUCE THE POSSIBILITY
OF THE EXPRESSION OF SUCH WISHES BY ALL THE NATIONS IT IS INDISPENSABLE
TO TROUBLE IN ALL COUNTRIES THE PEOPLE'S RELATIONS WITH THEIR GOVERNMENTS
SO AS TO UTTERLY EXHAUST HUMANITY WITH DISSENSION, HATRED, STRUGGLE,
ENVY AND EVEN BY THE USE OF TORTURE, BY STARVATION, BY THE INOCULATION
OF DISEASES, BY WANT, SO THAT THE "GOYIM" SEE NO OTHER
ISSUE THAN TO TAKE REFUGE IN OUR COMPLETE SOVEREIGNTY IN MONEY AND
IN ALL ELSE.
But if we give the nations of the world a breathing space the moment
we long for is hardly likely ever to arrive.
The State Council has been, as it were, the emphatic expression
of the authority of the ruler: it will be, as the "show"
part of the Legislative Corps, what may be called the editorial
committee of the laws and decrees of the ruler.
This, then, is the program of the new constitution. We shall make
Law, Right and Justice (1) in the guise of proposals to the Legislative
Corps, (2) by decrees of the president under the guise of general
regulations, of orders of the Senate and of resolutions of the State
Council in the guise of ministerial orders, (3) and in case a suitable
occasion should arise - in the form of a revolution in the State.
Having established approximately the MODUS AGENDI we will occupy
ourselves with details of those combinations by which we have still
to complete the revolution in the course of the machinery of State
in the direction already indicated. By these combinations I mean
the freedom of the Press, the right of association, freedom of conscience,
the voting principle, and many another that must disappear for ever
from the memory of man, or undergo a radical alteration the day
after the promulgation of the new constitution. It is only at the
moment that we shall be able at once to announce all our orders,
for, afterwards, every noticeable alteration will be dangerous,
for the following reasons: if this alteration be brought in with
harsh severity and in a sense of severity and limitations, it may
lead to a feeling of despair caused by fear of new alterations in
the same direction; if, on the other hand, it be brought in a sense
of further indulgences it will be said that we have recognized our
own wrong-doing and this will destroy the prestige of the infallibility
of our authority, or else it will be said that we have become alarmed
and are compelled to show a yielding disposition, for which we shall
get no thanks because it will be supposed to be compulsory ... Both
the one and the other are injurious to the prestige of the new constitution.
What we want is that from the first moment of its promulgation,
while the peoples of the world are still stunned by the accomplished
fact of the revolution, still in a condition of terror and uncertainty,
they should recognize once for all that we are so strong, so inexpugnable,
so super-abundantly filled with power, that in no case shall we
take any account of them, and so far from paying any attention to
their opinions or wishes, we are ready and able to crush with irresistible
power all expression or manifestation thereof at every moment and
in every place, that we have seized at once everything we wanted
and shall in no case divide our power with them ... Then in fear
and trembling they will close their eyes to everything, and be content
to await what will be the end of it all.
The GOYIM 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: for
we shall keep promising them to give back all the liberties we have
taken away as soon as we have quelled the enemies of peace and tamed
all parties ....
It is not worth to say anything about how long a time they will
be kept waiting for this return of their liberties ....
For what purpose then have we invented this whole policy and insinuated
it into the minds of the GOY without giving them any chance to examine
its underlying meaning? For what, indeed, if not in order to obtain
in a roundabout way what is for our scattered tribe unattainable
by the direct road? It is this which has served as the basis for
our organization of SECRET MASONRY WHICH IS NOT KNOWN TO, AND AIMS
WHICH ARE NOT EVEN SO MUCH AS SUSPECTED BY, THESE "GOY"
CATTLE, ATTRACTED BY US INTO THE "SHOW" ARMY OF MASONIC
LODGES IN ORDER TO THROW DUST IN THE EYES OF THEIR FELLOWS.
God has granted to us, His Chosen People, the gift of the dispersion,
and in this which appears in all eyes to be our weakness, has come
forth all our strength, which has now brought us to the threshold
of sovereignty over all the world.
There now remains not much more for us to build up upon the foundation
we have laid.
The word "freedom," which can be interpreted in various
ways, is defined by us as follows:
Freedom is the right to do what which the law allows. This interpretation
of the word will at the proper time be of service to us, because
all freedom will thus be in our hands, since the laws will abolish
or create only that which is desirable for us according to the aforesaid
We shall deal with the press in the following way: what is the part
played by the press to-day? It serves to excite and inflame those
passions which are needed for our purpose or else it serves selfish
ends of parties. It is often vapid, unjust, mendacious, and the
majority of the public have not the slightest idea what ends the
press really serves. We shall saddle and bridle it with a tight
curb: we shall do the same also with all productions of the printing
press, for where would be the sense of getting rid of the attacks
of the press if we remain targets for pamphlets and books? The produce
of publicity, which nowadays is a source of heavy expense owing
to the necessity of censoring it, will be turned by us into a very
lucrative source of income to our State: we shall law on it a special
stamp tax and require deposits of caution-money before permitting
the establishment of any organ of the press or of printing offices;
these will then have to guarantee our government against any kind
of attack on the part of the press. For any attempt to attack us,
if such still be possible, we shall inflict fines without mercy.
Such measures as stamp tax, deposit of caution-money and fines secured
by these deposits, will bring in a huge income to the government.
It is true that party organs might not spare money for the sake
of publicity, but these we shall shut up at the second attack upon
us. No one shall with impunity lay a finger on the aureole of our
government infallibility. The pretext for stopping any publication
will be the alleged plea that it is agitating the public mind without
occasion or justification. I BEG YOU TO NOTE THAT AMONG THOSE MAKING
ATTACKS UPON US WILL ALSO BE ORGANS ESTABLISHED BY US, BUT THEY
WILL ATTACK EXCLUSIVELY POINTS THAT WE HAVE PRE-DETERMINED TO ALTER.
CONTROL THE PRESS
NOT A SINGLE ANNOUNCEMENT WILL REACH THE PUBLIC WITHOUT OUR CONTROL.
Even now this is already being attained by us inasmuch as all news
items are received by a few agencies, in whose offices they are
focused from all parts of the world. These agencies will then be
already entirely ours and will give publicity only to what we dictate
If already now we have contrived to possess ourselves of the minds
of the GOY communities to such an extent the they all come near
looking upon the events of the world through the colored glasses
of those spectacles we are setting astride their noses; if already
now there is not a single State where there exist for us any barriers
to admittance into what GOY stupidity calls State secrets: what
will our positions be then, when we shall be acknowledged supreme
lords of the world in the person of our king of all the world ....
Let us turn again to the FUTURE OF THE PRINTING PRESS. Every one
desirous of being a publisher, librarian, or printer, will be obliged
to provide himself with the diploma instituted therefore, which,
in case of any fault, will be immediately impounded. With such measures
THE INSTRUMENT OF THOUGHT WILL BECOME AN EDUCATIVE MEANS ON THE
HANDS OF OUR GOVERNMENT, WHICH WILL NO LONGER ALLOW THE MASS OF
THE NATION TO BE LED ASTRAY IN BY-WAYS AND FANTASIES ABOUT THE BLESSINGS
OF PROGRESS. Is there any one of us who does not know that these
phantom blessings are the direct roads to foolish imaginings which
give birth to anarchical relations of men among themselves and towards
authority, because progress, or rather the idea of progress, has
introduced the conception of every kind of emancipation, but has
failed to establish its limits .... All the so-called liberals are
anarchists, if not in fact, at any rate in thought. Every one of
them in hunting after phantoms of freedom, and falling exclusively
into license, that is, into the anarchy of protest for the sake
of protest ....
We turn to the periodical press. We shall impose on it, as on all
printed matter, stamp taxes per sheet and deposits of caution- money,
and books of less than 30 sheets will pay double. We shall reckon
them as pamphlets in order, on the one hand, to reduce the number
of magazines, which are the worst form of printed poison, and, on
the other, in order that this measure may force writers into such
lengthy productions that they will be little read, especially as
they will be costly. At the same time what we shall publish ourselves
to influence mental development in the direction laid down for our
profit will be cheap and will be read voraciously. The tax will
bring vapid literary ambitions within bounds and the liability to
penalties will make literary men dependent upon us. And if there
should be any found who are desirous of writing against us, they
will not find any person eager to print their productions in print
the publisher or printer will have to apply to the authorities for
permission to do so. Thus we shall know beforehand of all tricks
preparing against us and shall nullify them by getting ahead with
explanations on the subject treated of.
Literature and journalism are two of the most important educative
forces, and therefore our government will become proprietor of the
majority of the journals. This will neutralize the injurious influence
of the privately-owned press and will put us in possession of a
tremendous influence upon the public mind .... If we give permits
for ten journals, we shall ourselves found thirty, and so on in
the same proportion. This, however, must in no wise be suspected
by the public. For which reason all journals published by us will
be of the most opposite, in appearance, tendencies and opinions,
thereby creating confidence in us and bringing over to us quite
unsuspicious opponents, who will thus fall into our trap and be
In the front rank will stand organs of an official character. They
will always stand guard over our interests, and therefore their
influence will be comparatively insignificant.
In the second rank will be the semi-official organs, whose part
it will be to attack the tepid and indifferent.
In the third rank we shall set up our own, to all appearance, off
position, which, in at least one of its organs, will present what
looks like the very antipodes to us. Our real opponents at heart
will accept this simulated opposition as their own and will show
us their cards.
All our newspapers will be of all possible complexions - aristocratic,
republican, revolutionary, even anarchical - for so long, of course,
as the constitution exists .... Like the Indian 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 required. When a pulse
quickens these hands will lead opinion in the direction of our aims,
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 of their own camp will be repeating our opinion
or any opinion that seems desirable for us. In the vain belief that
they are following the organ of their party they will, in fact,
follow the flag which we hang out for them.
In order to direct our newspaper militia in this sense we must take
special and minute care in organizing this matter. Under the title
of central department of the press we shall institute literary gatherings
at which our agents will without attracting attention issue the
orders and watchwords of the day. By discussing andcontroverting,
but always superficially, without touching the essence of the matter,
our organs will carry on a sham fight fusillade with the official
newspapers solely for the purpose of giving occasion for us to express
ourselves more fully than could well be done from the outset in
official announcements, whenever, of course, that is to our advantage.
THESE ATTACKS UPON US WILL ALSO SERVE ANOTHER PURPOSE, NAMELY, THAT
OUR SUBJECTS WILL BE CONVINCED TO THE EXISTENCE OF FULL FREEDOM
OF SPEECH AND SO GIVE OUR AGENTS AN OCCASION TO AFFIRM THAT ALL
ORGANS WHICH OPPOSE US ARE EMPTY BABBLERS, since they are incapable
of finding any substantial objections to our orders.
Methods of organization like these, imperceptible to the public
eye but absolutely sure, are the best calculated to succeed in bringing
the attention and the confidence of the public to the side of our
government. Thanks to such methods we shall be in a position as
from time to time may be required, to excite or to tranquillize
the public mind on political questions, to persuade or to confuse,
printing now truth, now lies, facts or their contradictions, according
as they may be well or ill received, always very cautiously feeling
our ground before stepping upon it .... WE SHALL HAVE A SURE TRIUMPH
OVER OUR OPPONENTS SINCE THEY WILL NOT HAVE AT THEIR DISPOSITION
ORGANS OF THE PRESS IN WHICH THEY CAN GIVE FULL AND FINAL EXPRESSION
TO THEIR VIEWS owing to the aforesaid methods of dealing with the
press. We shall not even need to refute them except very superficially.
Trial shots like these, fired by us in the third rank of our press,
in case of need, will be energetically refuted by us in our semi-official
Even nowadays, already, to take only the French press, there are
forms which reveal masonic solidarity in acting on the watchword:
all organs of the press are bound together by professional secrecy;
like the augurs of old, not one of their numbers will give away
the secret of his sources of information unless it be resolved to
make announcement of them. Not one journalist will venture to betray
this secret, for not one of them is ever admitted to practice literature
unless his whole past has some disgraceful sore or other .... These
sores would be immediately revealed. So long as they remain the
secret of a few the prestige of the journalist attacks the majority
of the country - the mob follow after him with enthusiasm.
Our calculations are especially extended to the provinces. It is
indispensable for us to inflame there those hopes and impulses with
which we could at any moment fall upon the capital, and we shall
represent to the capitals that these expressions are the independent
hopes and impulses of the provinces. Naturally, the source of them
will be always one and the same - ours. WHAT WE NEED IS THAT, UNTIL
SUCH TIME AS WE ARE IN THE PLENITUDE POWER, THE CAPITALS SHOULD
FIND THEMSELVES STIFLED BY THE PROVINCIAL OPINION OF THE NATIONS,
I.E., OF A MAJORITY ARRANGED BY OUR AGENTUR. What we need is that
at the psychological moment the capitals should not be in a position
to discuss an accomplished fact for the simple reason, if for no
other, that it has been accepted by the public opinion of a majority
in the provinces.
WHEN WE ARE IN THE PERIOD OF THE NEW REGIME TRANSITIONAL TO THAT
OF OUR ASSUMPTION OF FULL SOVEREIGNTY WE MUST NOT ADMIT ANY REVELATION
BY THE PRESS OF ANY FORM OF PUBLIC DISHONESTY; IT IS NECESSARY THAT
THE NEW REGIME SHOULD BE THOUGHT TO HAVE SO PERFECTLY CONTENDED
EVERYBODY THAT EVEN CRIMINALITY HAS DISAPPEARED ... Cases of the
manifestation of criminality should remain known only to their victims
and to chance witnesses - no more.
The need for daily forces the GOYIM to keep silence and be our humble
servants. Agents taken on to our press from among the GOYIM will
at our orders discuss anything which it is inconvenient for us to
issue directly in official documents, and we meanwhile, quietly
amid the din of the discussion so raised, shall simply take and
carry through such measures as we wish and then offer them to the
public as an accomplished fact. No one will dare to demand the abrogation
of a matter once settled, all the more so as it will be represented
as an improvement ... And immediately the press will distract the
current of thought towards, new questions, (have we not trained
people always to be seeking something new?). Into the discussions
of these new questions will throw themselves those of the brainless
dispensers of fortunes who are not able even now to understand that
they have not the remotest conception about the matters which they
undertake to discuss. Questions of the political are unattainable
for any save those who have guided it already for many ages, the
From all this you will see that in seeming the opinion of the mob
we are only facilitating the working of our machinery, and you may
remark that it is not for actions but for words issued by us on
this or that question that we seem to seek approval. We are constantly
making public declaration that we are guided in all our undertakings
by the hoope, joined to the conviction, that we are serving the
In order to distract people who may be too troublesome from discussions
of questions of the political we are now putting forward what we
allege to be new questions of the political, namely, questions of
industry. In this sphere let them discuss themselves silly! The
masses are agreed to remain inactive, to take a rest from what they
suppose to be political (which we trained them to in order to use
them as a means of combating the GOY governments) only on condition
of being found new employments, in which we are prescribing them
something that looks like the same political object. In order that
the masses themselves may not guess what they are about WE FURTHER
DISTRACT THEM WITH AMUSEMENTS, GAMES, PASTIMES, PASSIONS, PEOPLE'S
PALACES .... SOON WE SHALL BEGIN THROUGH THE PRESS TO PROPOSE COMPETITIONS
IN ART, IN SPORT IN ALL KINDS: these interests will finally distract
their minds from questions in which we should find ourselves compelled
to oppose them. Growing more and more dis- accustomed to reflect
and form any opinions of their own, people will begin to talk in
the same tone as we because we alone shall be offering them new
directions for thought ... of course through such persons as will
not be suspected of solidarity with us.
The part played by the liberals, utopian dreamers, will be finally
played out when our government is acknowledged. Till such time they
will continue to do us good service. Therefore we shall continue
to direct their minds to all sorts of vain conceptions of fantastic
theories, new and apparently progressive: for have we not with complete
success turned the brainless heads of the GOYIM with progress, till
there is not among the GOYIM one mind able to perceive that under
this word lies a departure from truth in all cases where it is not
a question of material inventions, like a fallacious idea, serves
to obscure truth so that none may know it except us, the Chosen
of God, its guardians.
When, we come into our kingdom our orators will expound great problems
which have turned humanity upside down in order to bring it at the
end under our beneficent rule.
Who will ever suspect then that ALL THESE PEOPLES WERE STAGE-MANAGED
BY US ACCORDING TO A POLITICAL PLAN WHICH NO ONE HAS SO MUCH AS
GUESSED AT IN THE COURSE OF MANY CENTURIES?
When we come into our kingdom it will be undesirable for us that
there should exist any other religion than ours of the One God with
whom our destiny is bound up by our position as the Chosen People
and through whom our same destiny is united with the destinies of
the world. We must therefore sweep away all other forms of belief.
If this gives birth to the atheists whom we see to-day, it will
not, being only a transitional stage, interfere with our views,
but will serve as a warning for those generations which will hearken
to our preaching of the religion of Moses, that, by its stable and
thoroughly elaborated system has brought all the peoples of the
world into subjection to us. Therein we shall emphasize its mystical
right, on which, as we shall say, all its educative power is based
.... Then at every possible opportunity we shall publish articles
in which we shall make comparisons between our beneficent rule and
those of past ages. The blessing of tranquillity, though it be a
tranquillity forcibly brought about by centuries of agitation, will
throw into higher relief the benefits to which we shall point. The
errors of the GOYIM governments will be depicted by us in the most
vivid hues. We shall implant such an abhorrence of them that the
peoples will prefer tranquillity in a state of serfdom to those
rights of vaunted freedom which have tortured humanity and exhausted
the very sources of human existence, sources which have been exploited
by a mob of rascally adventurers who know not what they do ....
USELESS CHANGES OF FORMS OF GOVERNMENT TO WHICH WE INSTIGATED THE
"GOYIM" WHEN WE WERE UNDERMINING THEIR STATE STRUCTURES,
WILL HAVE SO WEARIED THE PEOPLES BY THAT TIME THAT THEY WILL PREFER
TO SUFFER ANYTHING UNDER US RATHER THAN RUN THE RISK OF ENDURING
AGAIN ALL THE AGITATIONS AND MISERIES THEY HAVE GONE THROUGH.
SHALL FORBID CHRIST
At the same time we shall not omit to emphasize the historical mistakes
of the GOY governments which have tormented humanity for so many
centuries by their lack of understanding of everything that constitutes
the true good of humanity in their chase after fantastic schemes
of social blessings, and have never noticed that these schemes kept
on producing a worse and never a better state of the universal relations
which are the basis of human life ....
The whole force of our principles and methods will lie in the fact
that we shall present them and expound them as a splendid contrast
to the dead and decomposed old order of things in social life.
Our philosophers will discuss all the shortcomings of the various
beliefs of the "GOYIM," BUT NO ONE WILL EVER BRING UNDER
DISCUSSION OUR FAITH FROM ITS TRUE POINT OF VIEW SINCE THIS WILL
BE FULLY LEARNED BY NONE SAVE OURS WHO WILL NEVER DARE TO BETRAY
IN COUNTRIES KNOWN AS PROGRESSIVE AND ENLIGHTENED WE HAVE CREATED
A SENSELESS, FILTHY, ABOMINABLE LITERATURE. For some time after
our entrance to power we shall continue to encourage its existence
in order to provide a telling relief by contrast to the speeches,
party program, which will be distributed from exalted quarters of
ours .... Our wise men, trained to become leaders of the GOYIM,
will compose speeches, projects, memoirs, articles, which will be
used by us to influence the minds of the GOYIM, directing them towards
such understanding and forms of knowledge as have been determined
When we at last definitely come into our kingdom by the aid of COUPS
D'ETAT prepared everywhere for one and the same day, after definitely
acknowledged (and not a little time will pass before that comes
about, perhaps even a whole century) we shall make it our task to
see that against us such things as plots shall no longer exist.
With this purpose we shall slay without mercy all who take arms
(in hand) to oppose our coming into our kingdom. Every kind of new
institution of anything like a secret society will also be punished
with death; those of them which are now in existence, are known
to us, serve us and have served us, we shall disband and send into
exile to continents far removed from Europe. IN THIS WAY WE SHALL
PROCEED WITH THOSE "GOY" MASONS WHO KNOW TOO MUCH; such
of these as we may for some reason spare will be kept in constant
fear of exile. We shall promulgate a law making all former members
of secret societies liable to exile from Europe as the center of
Resolutions of our government will be final, without appeal.
In the GOY societies, in which we have planted and deeply rooted
discord and protestantism, the only possible way of restoring order
is to employ merciless measures that prove the direct force of authority:
no regard must be paid to the victims who fall, they suffer for
the well-being of the future. The attainment of that well-being,
even at the expense of sacrifices, is the duty of any kind of government
that acknowledges as justification for its existence not only its
privileges but its obligations. The principal guarantee of stability
of rule is to confirm the aureole of power, and this aureole is
attained only by such a majestic inflexibility of might as shall
carry on its face the emblems of inviolability from mystical causes
- from the choice of God. SUCH WAS, UNTIL RECENT TIMES, THE RUSSIAN
AUTOCRACY, THE ONE AND ONLY SERIOUS FOE WE HAD IN THE WORLD, WITHOUT
COUNTING THE PAPACY. Bear in mind the example when Italy, drenched
with blood, never touched a hair of the head of Sulla who had poured
forth that blood: Sulla enjoyed an apotheosis for his might in him,
but his intrepid return to Italy ringed him round with inviolability.
The people do not lay a finger on him who hypnotizes them by his
daring and strength of mind.
Meantime, however, until we come into our kingdom, we shall act
in the contrary way: we shall create and multiply free masonic lodges
in all the countries of the world, absorb into them all who may
become or who are prominent in public activity, for these lodges
we shall find our principal intelligence office and means of influence.
All these lodges we shall bring under one central administration,
known to us alone and to all others absolutely unknown, which will
be composed of our learned elders. The lodges will have their representatives
who will serve to screen the above-mentioned administration of MASONRY
and from whom will issue the watchword and program. In these lodges
we shall tie together the knot which binds together all revolutionary
and liberal elements. Their composition will be made up of all strata
of society. The most secret political plots will be known to us
and fall under our guiding hands on the very day of their conception.
AMONG THE MEMBERS OF THESE LODGES WILL BE ALMOST ALL THE AGENTS
OF INTERNATIONAL AND NATIONAL POLICE since their service is for
us irreplaceable in the respect that the police is in a position
not only to use its own particular measures with the insubordinate,
but also to screen our activities and provide pretexts for discontents,
The class of people who most willingly enter into secret societies
are those who live by their wits, careerists, and in general people,
mostly light-minded, with whom we shall have no difficulty in dealing
and in using to wind up the mechanism of the machine devised by
us. If this world grows agitated the meaning of that will be that
we have had to stir up in order to break up its too great solidarity.
BUT IF THERE SHOULD ARISE IN ITS MIDST A PLOT, THEN AT THE HEAD
OF THAT PLOT WILL BE NO OTHER THAN ONE OF OUR MOST TRUSTED SERVANTS.
It is natural that we and no other should lead MASONIC activities,
for we know whither we are leading, we know the final goal of every
form of activity whereas the GOYIM have knowledge of nothing, not
even of the immediate effect of action; they put before themselves,
usually, the momentary reckoning of the satisfaction of their self-
opinion in the accomplishment of their thought without even remarking
that the very conception never belonged to their initiative but
to our instigation of their thought ....
The GOYIM enter the lodges out of curiosity or in the hope by their
means to get a nibble at the public pie, and some of them in order
to obtain a hearing before the public for their impracticable and
groundless fantasies: they thirst for the emotion of success and
applause, of which we are remarkably generous. And the reason why
we give them this success is to make use of the nigh conceit of
themselves to which it gives birth, for that insensibly disposes
them to assimulate our suggestions without being on their guard
against them in the fullness of their confidence that it is their
own infallibility which is giving utterance to their own thoughts
and that it is impossible for them to borrow those of others ....
You cannot imagine to what extent the wisest of the GOYIM can be
brought to a state of unconscious naivete in the presence of this
condition of high conceit of themselves, and at the same time how
easy it is to take the heart out of them by the slightest ill-success,
though it be nothing more than the stoppage of the applause they
had, and to reduce them to a slavish submission for the sake of
winning a renewal of success .... BY SO MUCH AS OURS DISREGARD SUCCESS
IF ONLY THEY CAN CARRY THROUGH THEIR PLANS, BY SO MUCH THE "GOYIM"
ARE WILLING TO SACRIFICE ANY PLANS ONLY TO HAVE SUCCESS. This psychology
of theirs materially facilitates for us the task of setting them
in the required direction. These tigers in appearance have the souls
of sheep and the wind blows freely through their heads. We have
set them on the hobby-horse of an idea about the absorption of individuality
by the symbolic unit of COLLECTIVISM .... They have never yet and
they never will have the sense to reflect that this hobby-horse
is a manifest violation of the most important law of nature, which
has established from the very creation of the world one unit unlike
another and precisely for the purpose of instituting individuality
If we have been able to bring them to such a pitch of stupid blindness
is it not a proof, and an amazingly clear proof, of the degree to
which the mind of the GOYIM is undeveloped in comparison with our
mind? This it is, mainly, which guarantees our success.
And how far-seeing were our learned elders in ancient times when
they said that to attain a serious end it behooves not to stop at
any means or to count the victims sacrificed for the sake of that
end .... We have not counted the victims of the seed of the GOY
cattle, though we have sacrificed many of our own, but for that
we have now already given them such a position on the earth as they
could not even have dreamed of. The comparatively small numbers
of the victims from the number of ours have preserved our nationality
Death is the inevitable end for all. It is better to bring that
end nearer to those who hinder our affairs than to ourselves, to
the founders of this affair. WE EXECUTE MASONS IN SUCH WISE THAT
NONE SAVE THE BROTHERHOOD CAN EVER HAVE A SUSPICION OF IT, NOT EVEN
THE VICTIMS THEMSELVES OF OUR DEATH SENTENCE, THEY ALL DIE WHEN
REQUIRED AS IF FROM A NORMAL KIND OF ILLNESS ..... Knowing this,
even the brotherhood in its turn dare not protest. By such methods
we have plucked out of the midst of MASONRY the very root of protest
against our disposition. While preaching liberalism to the GOY we
at the same time keep our own people and our agents in a state of
Under our influence the execution of the laws of the GOYIM has been
reduced to a minimum. The prestige of the law has been exploded
by the liberal interpretations introduced into this sphere. In the
most important and fundamental affairs and questions, JUDGES DECIDE
AS WE DICTATE TO THEM, see matters in the light wherewith we enfold
them for the administration of the GOYIM, of course, through persons
who are our tools though we do not appear to have anything in common
with them - by newspaper opinion or by other means .... Even senators
and the higher administration accept our counsels. The purely brute
mind of the GOYIM is incapable of use for analysis and observation,
and still more for the foreseeing whither a certain manner of setting
a question may tend.
In this difference in capacity for thought between the GOYIM and
ourselves may be clearly discerned the seal of our position as the
Chosen People and of our higher quality of humanness, in contradistinction
to the brute mind of the GOYIM. Their eyes are open, but see nothing
before them and do not invent (unless perhaps, material things).
From this it is plain that nature herself has destined us to guide
and rule the world.
When comes the time of our overt rule, the time to manifest its
blessing, we shall remake all legislatures, all our laws will be
brief, plain, stable, without any kind of interpretations, so that
anyone will be in a position to know them perfectly. The main feature
which will run right through them is submission to orders, and this
principle will be carried to a grandiose height. Every abuse will
then disappear in consequence of the responsibility of all down
to the lowest unit before the higher authority of the representative
of power. Abuses of power subordinate to this last instance will
be so mercilessly punished that none will be found anxious to try
experiments with their own powers. We shall follow up jealously
every action of the administration on which depends the smooth running
of the machinery of the State, for slackness in this produces slackness
everywhere; not a single case of illegality or abuse of power will
be left without exemplary punishment.
Concealment of guilt, connivance between those in the service of
the administration - all this kind of evil will disappear after
the very first examples of severe punishment. The aureole of our
power demands suitable, that is, cruel, punishments for the slightest
infringement, for the sake of gain, of its supreme prestige. The
sufferer, though his punishment may exceed his fault, will count
as a soldier falling on the administrative field of battle in the
interest of authority, principle and law, which do not permit that
any of those who hold the reins of the public coach should turn
aside from the public highway to their own private paths. FOR EXAMPLES
OUR JUDGES WILL KNOW THAT WHENEVER THEY FEEL DISPOSED TO PLUME THEMSELVES
ON FOOLISH CLEMENCY THEY ARE VIOLATING THE LAW OF JUSTICE WHICH
IS INSTITUTED FOR THE EXEMPLARY EDIFICATION OF MEN BY PENALTIES
FOR LAPSES AND NOT FOR DISPLAY OF THE SPIRITUAL QUALITIES OF THE
JUDGES .... Such qualities it is proper to show in private life,
but not in a public square which is the educationally basis of human
Our legal staff will serve not beyond the age of 55, firstly because
old men more obstinately hold to prejudiced opinions, and are less
capable of submitting to new directions, and secondly because this
will give us the possibility by this measure of securing elasticity
in the changing of staff, which will thus the more easily bend under
our pressure: he who wishes to keep his place will have to give
blind obedience to deserve it. In general, our judges will be elected
by us only from among those who thoroughly understand that the part
they have to play is to punish and apply laws and not to dream about
the manifestations of liberalism at the expense of the educational
scheme of the State, as the GOYIM in these days imagine it to be
.... This method of shuffling the staff will serve also to explode
any collective solidarity of those in the same service and will
bind all to the interests of the government upon which their fate
will depend. The young generation of judges will be trained in certain
views regarding the inadmissibility of any abuses that might disturb
the established order of our subjects among themselves.
In these days the judges of the GOYIM create indulgences to every
kind of crimes, not having a just understanding of their office,
because the rulers of the present age in appointing judges to office
take no care to inculcate in them a sense of duty and consciousness
of the matter which is demanded of them. As a brute beast lets out
its young in search of prey, so do the GOYIM give to them for what
purpose such place was created. This is the reason why their governments
are being ruined by their own forces through the acts of their own
Let us borrow from the example of the results of these actions yet
another lesson for our government.
We shall root out liberalism from all the important strategic posts
of our government on which depends the training of subordinates
for our State structure. Such posts will fall exclusively to those
who have been trained by us for administrative rule. To the possible
objection that the retirement of old servants will cost the Treasury
heavily, I reply, firstly, they will be provided with some private
service in place of what they lose, and, secondly, I have to remark
that all the money in the world will be concentrated in our hands,
consequently it is not our government that has to fear expense.
SHALL BE CRUEL
Our absolutism will in all things be logically consecutive and therefore
in each one of its decrees our supreme will be respected and unquestionably
fulfilled: it will ignore all murmurs, all discontents of every
kind and will destroy to the root every kind of manifestation of
them in act by punishment of an exemplary character.
We shall abolish the right of cessation, which will be transferred
exclusively to our disposal - to the cognizance of him who rules,
for we must not allow the conception among the people of a thought
that there could be such a thing as a decision that is not right
of judges set up by us. If, however, anything like this should occur,
we shall ourselves cassate the decision, but inflict therewith such
exemplary punishment on the judge for lack of understanding of his
duty and the purpose of his appointment as will prevent a repetition
of such cases .... I repeat that it must be born in mind that we
shall know every step of our administration which only needs to
be closely watched for the people to be content with us, for it
has the right to demand from a good government a good official.
OUR GOVERNMENT WILL HAVE THE APPEARANCE OF A PATRIARCHAL PATERNAL
GUARDIANSHIP ON THE PART OF OUR RULER. Our own nation and our subjects
will discern in his person a father caring for their every need,
their every act, their every inter-relation as subjects one with
another, as well as their relations to the ruler. They will then
be so thoroughly imbued with the thought that it is impossible for
them to dispense with this wardship and guidance, if they wish to
live in peace and quiet, THAT THEY WILL ACKNOWLEDGE THE AUTOCRACY
OF OUR RULER WITH A DEVOTION BORDERING ON "APOTHEOSIS,"
especially when they are convinced that those whom we set up do
not put their own in place of authority, but only blindly execute
his dictates. They will be rejoiced that we have regulated everything
in their lives as is done by wise parents who desire to train children
in the cause of duty and submission. For the peoples of the world
in regard to the secrets of our polity are ever through the ages
only children under age, precisely as are also their governments.
As you see, I found our despotism on right and duty: the right to
compel the execution of duty is the direct obligation of a government
which is a father for its subjects. It has the right of the strong
that it may use it for the benefit of directing humanity towards
that order which is defined by nature, namely, submission. Everything
in the world is in a state of submission, if not to man, then to
circumstances or its own inner character, in all cases, to what
is stronger. And so shall we be this something stronger for the
sake of good.
We are obliged without hesitation to sacrifice individuals, who
commit a breach of established order, for in the exemplary punishment
of evil lies a great educational problem.
When the King of Israel sets upon his sacred head the crown offered
him by Europe he will become patriarch of the world. The indispensable
victims offered by him in consequence of their suitability will
never reach the number of victims offered in the course of centuries
by the mania of magnificence, the emulation between the GOY governments.
Our King will be in constant communion with the peoples, making
to them from the tribune speeches which fame will in that same hour
distribute over all the world.
In order to effect the destruction of all collective forces except
ours we shall emasculate the first stage of collectivism - the UNIVERSITIES,
by re-educating them in a new direction. THEIR OFFICIALS AND PROFESSORS
WILL BE PREPARED FOR THEIR BUSINESS BY DETAILED SECRET PROGRAMS
OF ACTION FROM WHICH THEY WILL NOT WITH IMMUNITY DIVERGE, NOT BY
ONE IOTA. THEY WILL BE APPOINTED WITH ESPECIAL PRECAUTION, AND WILL
BE SO PLACED AS TO BE WHOLLY DEPENDENT UPON THE GOVERNMENT.
We shall exclude from the course of instruction State Law as also
all that concerns the political question. These subjects will be
taught to a few dozen of persons chosen for their pre-eminent capacities
from among the number of the initiated. THE UNIVERSITIES MUST NO
LONGER SEND OUT FROM THEIR HALLS MILK SOPS CONCOCTING PLANS FOR
A CONSTITUTION, LIKE A COMEDY OR A TRAGEDY, BUSYING THEMSELVES WITH
QUESTIONS OF POLICY IN WHICH EVEN THEIR OWN FATHERS NEVER HAD ANY
POWER OF THOUGHT.
The ill-guided acquaintance of a large number of persons with questions
of polity creates utopian dreamers and bad subjects, as you can
see for yourselves from the example of the universal education in
this direction of the GOYIM. We must introduce into their education
all those principles which have so brilliantly broken up their order.
But when we are in power we shall remove every kind of disturbing
subject from the course of education and shall make out of the youth
obedient children of authority, loving him who rules as the support
and hope of peace and quiet.
SHALL CHANGE HISTORY
Classicism as also any form of study of ancient history, in which
there are more bad than good examples, we shall replace with the
study of the program of the future. We shall erase from the memory
of men all facts of previous centuries which are undesirable to
us, and leave only those which depict all the errors of the government
of the GOYIM. The study of practical life, of the obligations of
order, of the relations of people one to another, of avoiding bad
and selfish examples, which spread the infection of evil, and similar
questions of an educative nature, will stand in the forefront of
the teaching program, which will be drawn up on a separate plan
for each calling or state of life, in no wise generalizing the teaching.
This treatment of the question has special importance.
Each state of life must be trained within strict limits corresponding
to its destination and work in life. The OCCASIONAL GENIUS HAS ALWAYS
MANAGED AND ALWAYS WILL MANAGE TO SLIP THROUGH INTO OTHER STATES
OF LIFE, BUT IT IS THE MOST PERFECT FOLLY FOR THE SAKE OF THIS RARE
OCCASIONAL GENIUS TO LET THROUGH INTO RANKS FOREIGN TO THEM THE
UNTALENTED WHO THUS ROB OF THEIR PLACES WHO BELONG TO THOSE RANKS
BY BIRTH OR EMPLOYMENT. YOU KNOW YOURSELVES IN WHAT ALL THIS HAS
ENDED FOR THE "GOYIM" WHO ALLOWED THIS CRYING ABSURDITY.
In order that he who rules may be seated firmly in the hearts and
minds of his subjects it is necessary for the time of his activity
to instruct the whole nation in the schools and on the market places
about this meaning and his acts and all his beneficent initiatives.
We shall abolish every kind of freedom of instruction. Learners
of all ages have the right to assemble together with their parents
in the educational establishments as it were in a club: during these
assemblies, on holidays, teachers will read what will pass as free
lectures on questions of human relations, of the laws of examples,
of the philosophy of new theories not yet declared to the world.
These theories will be raised by us to the stage of a dogma of faith
as a traditional stage towards our faith. On the completion of this
exposition of our program of action in the present and the future
I will read you the principles of these theories.
In a word, knowing by the experience of many centuries that people
live and are guided by ideas, that these ideas are imbibed by people
only by the aid of education provided with equal success for all
ages of growth, but of course by varying methods, we shall swallow
up and confiscate to our own use the last scintilla of independence
of thought, which we have for long past been directing towards subjects
and ideas useful for us. The system of bridling thought is already
at work in the so-called system of teaching by OBJECT LESSONS, the
purpose of which is to turn the GOYIM into unthinking submissive
brutes waiting for things to be presented before their eyes in order
to form an idea of them .... In France, one of our best agents,
Bourgeois, has already made public a new program of teaching by
The practice of advocacy produces men cold, cruel, persistent, unprincipled,
who in all cases take up an impersonal, purely legal standpoint.
They have the inveterate habit to refer everything to its value
for the defense and not to the public welfare of its results. They
do not usually decline to undertake any defense whatever, they strive
for an acquittal at all costs, caviling over every petty crux of
jurisprudence and thereby they demoralize justice. For this reason
we shall set this profession into narrow frames which will keep
it inside this sphere of executive public service. Advocates, equally
with judges, will be deprived of the right of communication with
litigant; they well receive business only from the court and will
study it by notes of report and documents, defending their clients
after they have been interrogated in court on facts that have appeared.
They will receive an honorarium without regard to the quality of
the defense. This will render them mere reporters on law-business
in the interests of justice and as counterpoise to the proctor who
will be the reporter in the interests of prosecution; this will
shorten business before the courts. In this way will be established
a practice of honest unprejudiced defense conducted not from personal
interest but by conviction. This will also, by the way, remove the
present practice of corrupt bargain between advocation to agree
only to let that side win which pays most .....
SHALL DESTROY THE CLERGY
WE HAVE LONG PAST TAKEN CARE TO DISCREDIT THE PRIESTHOOD OF "GOYIM,"
and thereby to ruin their mission on earth which in these days might
still be a great hindrance to us. Day by day its influence on the
peoples of the world is falling lower. FREEDOM OF CONSCIENCE HAS
BEEN DECLARED EVERYWHERE, SO THAT NOW ONLY YEARS DIVIDE US FROM
THE MOMENT OF THE COMPLETE WRECKING OF THAT CHRISTIAN RELIGION:
as to other religions we shall have still less difficulty in dealing
with them, but it would be premature to speak of this now. We shall
act clericalism and clericals into such narrow frames as to make
their influence move in retrogressive proportion to its former progress.
When the time comes finally to destroy the papal court the finger
of an invisible hand will point the nations towards this court.
When, however, the nations fling themselves upon it, we shall come
forward in the guise of its defenders as if to save excessive bloodshed.
By this diversion we shall penetrate to its very bowels and be sure
we shall never come out again until we have gnawed through the entire
strength of this place.
THE KING OF THE JEWS WILL BE THE REAL POPE OF THE UNIVERSE, THE
PATRIARCH OF THE INTERNATIONAL CHURCH (Antichrist??).
But, IN THE MEANTIME, while we are re-educating youth in new traditional
religions and afterwards in ours, WE SHALL NOT OVERTLY LAY A FINGER
ON EXISTING CHURCHES, BUT WE SHALL FIGHT AGAINST THEM BY CRITICISM
CALCULATED TO PRODUCE SCHISM ....
In general, then, our contemporary press will continue to CONVICT
State affairs, religions, incapacities of the GOYIM, always using
the most unprincipled expressions in order by every means to lower
their prestige in the manner which can only be practiced by the
genius of our gifted tribe ....
Our kingdom will be an apologia of the divinity Vishnu, in whom
is found its personification - in our hundred hands will be, one
in each, the springs of the machinery of social life. We shall see
everything without the aid of official police which, in that scope
of its rights which we elaborated for the use of the GOYIM, hinders
governments from seeing. In our programs ONE-THIRD OF OUR SUBJECTS
WILL KEEP THE REST UNDER OBSERVATION from a sense of duty, on the
principle of volunteer service to the State. It will then be no
disgrace to be a spy and informer, but a merit: unfounded denunciations,
however, will be cruelly punished that there may be development
of abuses of this right.
Our agents will be taken from the higher as well as the lower ranks
of society, from among the administrative class who spend their
time in amusements, editors, printers and publishers, booksellers,
clerks, and salesmen, workmen, coachmen, lackeys, et cetera. This
body, having no rights and not being empowered to take any action
on their own account, and consequently a police without any power,
will only witness and report: verification of their reports and
arrests will depend upon a responsible group of controllers of police
affairs, while the actual act of arrest will be performed by the
gendarmerie and the municipal police. Any person not denouncing
anything seen or heard concerning questions of polity will also
be charged with and made responsible for concealment, if it be proved
that he is guilty of this crime.
JUST AS NOWADAYS OUR BRETHREN, ARE OBLIGED AT THEIR OWN RISK TO
DENOUNCE TO THE KABAL APOSTATES OF THEIR OWN FAMILY or members who
have been noticed doing anything in opposition to the KABAL, SO
IN OUR KINGDOM OVER ALL THE WORLD IT WILL BE OBLIGATORY FOR ALL
OUR SUBJECTS TO OBSERVE THE DUTY OF SERVICE TO THE STATE IN THIS
Such an organization will extirpate abuses of authority, of force,
of bribery, everything in fact which we by our counsels, by out
theories of the superhuman rights of man, have introduced into the
customs of the GOYIM .... But how else were we to procure that increase
of causes predisposing to disorders in the midst of their administration?
.... Among the number of those methods one of the most important
is - agents for the restoration of order, so placed as to have the
opportunity in their disintegrating activity of developing and displaying
their evil inclinations - obstinate self-conceit, irresponsible
exercise of authority, and, first and foremost, venality.
When it becomes necessary for us to strengthen the strict measures
of secret defense (the most fatal poison for the prestige of authority)
we shall arrange a simulation of disorders or some manifestation
of discontents finding expression through the co- operation of good
speakers. Round these speakers will assemble all who are sympathetic
to his utterances. This will give us the pretext for domiciliary
prerequisitions and surveillance on the part of our servants from
among the number of the GOYIM police ....
As the majority of conspirators act of love for the game, for the
sake of talking, so, until they commit some overt act we shall not
lay a finger on them but only introduce into their midst observation
elements .... It must be remembered that the prestige of authority
is lessened if it frequently discovers conspiracies against itself:
this implies a presumption of consciousness of weakness, or, what
is still worse, of injustice. You are aware that we have broken
the prestige of the GOY kings by frequent attempts upon their lives
through our agents, blind sheep of our flock, who are easily moved
by a few liberal phrases to crimes provided only they be painted
in political colors. WE HAVE COMPELLED THE RULERS TO ACKNOWLEDGE
THEIR WEAKNESS IN ADVERTISING OVERT MEASURES OF SECRETE DEFENSE
AND THEREBY WE SHALL BRING THE PROMISE OF AUTHORITY TO DESTRUCTION.
Our ruler will be secretly protected only by the most insignificant
guard, because we shall not admit so much as a thought that there
could exist against him any sedition with which he is not strong
enough to contend and is compelled to hide from it.
If we should admit this thought, as the GOYIM have done and are
doing, we should IPSO FACTO be signing a death sentence, if not
for our ruler, at any rate for his dynasty, at no distant date.
According to strictly enforced outward appearances our ruler will
employ his power only for the advantage of the nation and in no
wise for his own or dynastic profits. Therefore, with the observance
of this decorum, his authority will be respected and guarded by
the subjects themselves, it will receive an apotheosis in the admission
that with it is bound up the well-being of every citizen of the
State, for upon it will depend all order in the common life of the
OVERT DEFENSE OF THE KIND ARGUES WEAKNESS IN THE ORGANIZATION OF
Our ruler will always be among the people and be surrounded by a
mob of apparently curious men and women, who will occupy the front
ranks about him, to all appearance by chance, and will restrain
the ranks of the rest out of respect as it will appear for good
order. This will sow an example of restraint also in others. If
a petitioner appears among the people trying to hand a petition
and forcing his way through the ranks, the first ranks must receive
the petition and before the eyes of the petitioner pass it to the
ruler, so that all may know that what is handed in reaches its destination,
that consequently, there exists a control of the ruler himself.
The aureole of power requires for is existence that the people may
be able to say: "If the king knew of this," or: "the
king will hear it."
WITH THE ESTABLISHMENT OF OFFICIAL DEFENSE, THE MYSTICAL PRESTIGE
OF AUTHORITY DISAPPEARS: given a certain audacity, and everyone
counts himself master of it, the sedition- monger is conscious of
his strength, and when occasion serves watches for the moment to
make an attempt upon authority .... For the GOYIM we have been preaching
something else, but by that very fact we are enabled to see what
measures of overt defense have brought them to ....
CRIMINALS WITH US WILL BE ARRESTED AT THE FIRST, more or less, well-grounded
SUSPICION: it cannot be allowed that out of fear of a possible mistake
an opportunity should be given of escape to persons suspected of
a political lapse of crime, for in these matters we shall be literally
merciless. If it is still possible, by stretching a point, to admit
a reconsideration of the motive causes in simple crimes, there is
no possibility of excuse for persons occupying themselves with questions
in which nobody except the government can understand anything ....
And it is not all governments that understand true policy.
If we do not permit any independent dabbling in the political we
shall on the other hand encourage every kind of report or petition
with proposals for the government to examine into all kinds of projects
for the amelioration of the condition of the people; this will reveal
to us the defects or else the fantasies of our subjects, to which
we shall respond either by accomplishing them or by a wise rebuttment
to prove the shortsightedness of one who judges wrongly.
Sedition-mongering is nothing more than the yapping of a lap- dog
at an elephant. For a government well organized, not from the police
but from the public point of view, the lap-dog yaps at the elephant
in entire unconsciousness of its strength and importance. It needs
no more than to take a good example to show the relative importance
of both and the lap-dogs will cease to yap and will wag their tails
the moment they set eyes on an elephant.
In order to destroy the prestige of heroism for political crime
we shall send it for trial in the category of thieving, murder,
and every kind of abominable and filthy crime. Public opinion will
then confuse in its conception of this category of crime with the
disgrace attaching to every other and will brand it with the same
We have done our best, and I hope we have succeeded to obtain that
the GOYIM should not arrive at this means of contending with sedition.
It was for this reason that through the Press and in speeches, indirectly
- in cleverly compiled school- books on history, we have advertised
the martyrdom alleged to have been accredited by sedition-mongers
for the idea of the commonweal. This advertisement has increased
the contingent of liberals and has brought thousands of GOYIM into
the ranks of our livestock cattle.
To-day we shall touch upon the financial program, which I put off
to the end of my report as being the most difficult, the crowning
and the decisive point of our plans. Before entering upon it I will
remind you that I have already spoken before by way of a hint when
I said that the sum total of our actions is settled by the question
When we come into our kingdom our autocratic government will avoid,
from a principle of self-preservation, sensibly burdening the masses
of the people with taxes, remembering that it plays the part of
father and protector. But as State organization cost dear it is
necessary nevertheless to obtain the funds required for it. It will,
therefore, elaborate with particular precaution the question of
equilibrium in this matter.
Our rule, in which the king will enjoy the legal fiction that everything
in his State belongs to him (which may easily be translated into
fact), will be enabled to resort to the lawful confiscation of all
sums of every kind for the regulation of their circulation in the
State. From this follows that taxation will best be covered by a
progressive tax on property. In this manner the dues will be paid
without straitening or ruining anybody in the form of a percentage
of the amount of property. The rich must be aware that it is their
duty to place a part of their superfluities at the disposal of the
State since the State guarantees them security of possession of
the rest of their property and the right of honest gains, I say
honest, for the control over property will do away with robbery
on a legal basis.
This social reform must come from above, for the time is ripe for
it - it is indispensable as a pledge of peace.
SHALL DESTROY CAPITAL
The tax upon the poor man is a seed of revolution and works to the
detriment of the State which is hunting after the trifling is missing
the big. Quite apart from this, a tax on capitalists diminishes
the growth of wealth in private hands in which we have in these
days concentrated it as a counterpoise to the government strength
of the GOYIM - their State finances.
A tax increasing in a percentage ratio to capital will give much
larger revenue than the present individual or property tax, which
is useful to us now for the sole reason that it excites trouble
and discontent among the GOYIM. (Now we know the purpose of the
The force upon which our king will rest consists in the equilibrium
and the guarantee of peace, for the sake of which things it is indispensable
that the capitalists should yield up a portion of their incomes
for the sake of the secure working of the machinery of the State.
State needs must be paid by those who will not feel the burden and
have enough to take from.
Such a measure will destroy the hatred of the poor man for the rich,
in whom he will see a necessary financial support for the State,
will see in him the organizer of peace and well-being since he will
see that it is the rich man who is paying the necessary means to
attain these things.
In order that payers of the educated classes should not too much
distress themselves over the new payments they will have full accounts
given them of the destination of those payments, with the exception
of such sums as will be appropriated for the needs of the throne
and the administrative institutions.
He who reigns will not have any properties of his own once all in
the State represented his patrimony, or else the one would be in
contradiction to the other; the fact of holding private means would
destroy the right of property in the common possessions of all.
Relatives of him who reigns, his heirs excepted, who will be maintained
by the resources of the State, must enter the ranks of servants
of the State or must work to obtain the right to property; the privilege
of royal blood must not serve for the spoiling of the treasury.
Purchase, receipt of money or inheritance will be subject to the
payment of a stamp progressive tax. Any transfer of property, whether
money or other, without evidence of payment of this tax which will
be strictly registered by names, will render the former holder liable
to pay interest on the tax from the moment of transfer of these
sums up to the discovery of his evasion of declaration of the transfer.
Transfer documents must be presented weekly at the local treasury
office with notifications of the name, surname and permanent place
of residence of the former and the new holder of the property. This
transfer with register of names must begin from a definite sum which
exceeds the ordinary expenses of buying and selling necessaries,
and these will be subject to payment only by a stamp impost of a
definite percentage of the unit.
Just strike an estimate of how many times such taxes as these will
cover the revenue of the GOYIM States.
The State exchequer will have to maintain a definite complement
of reserve sums, and all that is collected above that complement
must be returned into circulation. On these sums will be organized
public works. The initiative in works of this kind, proceeding from
State sources, will blind the working class firmly to the interests
of the State and to those who reign. From these same sums also a
part will be set aside as rewards of inventiveness and productiveness.
On no account should so much as a single unit above the definite
and freely estimated sums be retained in the State Treasuries, for
money exists to be circulated and any kind of stagnation of money
acts ruinously on the running of the State machinery, for which
it is the lubricant; a stagnation of the lubricant may stop the
regular working of the mechanism.
The substitution of interest-bearing paper for a part of the token
of exchange has produced exactly this stagnation. The consequences
of this circumstance are already sufficiently noticeable.
A court of account will also be instituted by us, and in it the
ruler will find at any moment a full accounting for State income
and expenditure, with the exception of the current monthly account,
not yet made up, and that of the preceding month, which will not
yet have been delivered.
The one and only person who will have no interest in robbing the
State is its owner, the ruler. This is why his personal control
will remove the possibility of leakages of extravagances.
The representative function of the ruler at receptions for the sake
of etiquette, which absorbs so much invaluable time, will be abolished
in order that the ruler may have time for control and consideration.
His power will not then be split up into fractional parts among
time-serving favorites who surround the throne for its pomp and
splendor, and are interested only in their own and not in the common
interests of the State.
Economic crises have been producer by us for the GOYIM by no other
means than the withdrawal of money from circulation. Huge capitals
have stagnated, withdrawing money from States, which were constantly
obliged to apply to those same stagnant capitals for loans. These
loans burdened the finances of the State with the payment of interest
and made them the bond slaves of these capitals .... The concentration
of industry in the hands of capitalists out of the hands of small
masters has drained away all the juices of the peoples and with
them also the States .... (Now we know the purpose of the Federal
Reserve Bank Corporation!!).
The present issue of money in general does not correspond with the
requirements per head, and cannot therefore satisfy all the needs
of the workers. The issue of money ought to correspond with the
growth of population and thereby children also must absolutely be
reckoned as consumers of currency from the day of their birth. The
revision of issue is a material question for the whole world.
YOU ARE AWARE THAT THE GOLD STANDARD HAS BEEN THE RUIN OF THE STATES
WHICH ADOPTED IT, FOR IT HAS NOT BEEN ABLE TO SATISFY THE DEMANDS
FOR MONEY, THE MORE SO THAT WE HAVE REMOVED GOLD FROM CIRCULATION
AS FAR AS POSSIBLE.
With us the standard that must be introduced is the cost of working-man
power, whether it be reckoned in paper or in wood. We shall make
the issue of money in accordance with the normal requirements of
each subject, adding to the quantity with every birth and subtracting
with every death.
The accounts will be managed by each department (the French administrative
division), each circle.
In order that there may be no delays in the paying our of money
for State needs the sums and terms of such payments will be fixed
by decree of the ruler; this will do away with the protection by
a ministry of one institution to the detriment of others.
The budgets of income and expenditure will be carried out side by
side that they may not be obscured by distance one to another.
The reforms projected by us in the financial institutions and principles
of the GOYIM will be clothed by us in such forms as will alarm nobody.
We shall point out the necessity of reforms in consequence of the
disorderly darkness into which the GOYIM by their irregularities
have plunged the finances. The first irregularity, as we shall point
out, consists in their beginning with drawing up a single budget
which year after year grows owing to the following cause: this budget
is dragged out to half the year, then they demand a budget to put
things right, and this they expend in three months, after which
they ask for a supplementary budget, and all this ends with a liquidation
budget. But, as the budget of the following year is drawn up in
accordance with the sum of the total addition, the annual departure
from the normal reaches as much as 50 per cent in a year, and so
the annual budget is trebled in ten years. Thanks to such methods,
allowed by the carelessness of the GOY States, their treasuries
are empty. The period of loans supervenes, and that has swallowed
up remainders and brought all the GOY States to bankruptcy. (The
United States was declared "bankrupt" at the Geneva Convention
of 1929! [see 31 USC 5112, 5118, and 5119).
You understand perfectly that economic arrangements of this kind,
which have been suggested to the GOYIM by us, cannot be carried
on by us.
Every kind of loan proves infirmity in the State and a want of understanding
of the rights of the State. Loans hang like a sword of Damocles
over the heads of rulers, who, instead of taking from their subjects
by a temporary tax, come begging with outstretched palm of our bankers.
Foreign loans are leeches which there is no possibility of removing
from the body of the State until they fall off of themselves or
the State flings them off. But the GOY States do not tear them off;
they go on in persisting in putting more on to themselves so that
they must inevitably perish, drained by voluntary blood-letting.
What also indeed is, in substance, a loan, especially a foreign
loan? A loan is - an issue of government bills of exchange containing
a percentage obligation commensurate to the sum of the loan capital.
If the loan bears a charge of 5 per cent, then in twenty years the
State vainly pays away in interest a sum equal to the loan borrowed,
in forty years it is paying a double sum, in sixty - treble, and
all the while the debt remains an unpaid debt.
From this calculation it is obvious that with any form of taxation
per head the State is baling out the last coppers of the poor taxpayers
in order to settle accounts with wealth foreigners, from whom it
has borrowed money instead of collecting these coppers for its own
needs without the additional interest.
So long as loans were internal the GOYIM only shuffled their money
from the pockets of the poor to those of the rich, but when we bought
up the necessary person in order to transfer loans into the external
sphere, all the wealth of States flowed into our cash- boxes and
all the GOYIM began to pay us the tribute of subjects.
If the superficiality of GOY kings on their thrones in regard to
State affairs and the venality of ministers or the want of understanding
of financial matters on the part of other ruling persons have made
their countries debtors to our treasuries to amounts quite impossible
to pay it has not been accomplished without, on our part, heavy
expenditure of trouble and money.
Stagnation of money will not be allowed by us and therefore there
will be no State interest-bearing paper, except a one per- cent
series, so that there will be no payment of interest to leeches
that suck all the strength out of the State. The right to issue
interest-bearing paper will be given exclusively to industrial companies
who will find no difficulty in paying interest out of profits, whereas
the State does not make interest on borrowed money like these companies,
for the State borrows to spend and not to use in operations. (Now
we know why President Kennedy was assassinated in 1963 when he refused
to borrow any more of the "Bank Notes" from the bankers
of the Federal Reserve Bank and began circulating non-interest bearing
"Notes" of the "United States of America"!!!).
Industrial papers will be bought also by the government which from
being as now a paper of tribute by loan operations will be transformed
into a lender of money at a profit. This measure will stop the stagnation
of money, parasitic profits and idleness, all of which were useful
for us among the GOYIM so long as they were independent but are
not desirable under our rule.
How clear is the undeveloped power of thought of the purely brute
brains of the GOYIM, as expressed in the fact that they have been
borrowing from us with payment of interest without ever thinking
that all the same these very moneys plus an addition for payment
of interest must be got by them from their own State pockets in
order to settle up with us. What could have been simpler than to
take the money they wanted from their own people?
But it is a proof of the genius of our chosen mind that we have
contrived to present the matter of loans to them in such a light
that they have even seen in them an advantage for themselves.
Our accounts, which we shall present when the time comes, in the
light of centuries of experience gained by experiments made by us
on the GOY States, will be distinguished by clearness and definiteness
and will show at a glance to all men the advantage of our innovations.
They will put an end to those abuses to which we owe our mastery
over the GOYIM, but which cannot be allowed in our kingdom.
We shall so hedge about our system of accounting that neither the
ruler nor the most insignificant public servant will be in a position
to divert even the smallest sum from its destination without detection
or to direct it in another direction except that which will be once
fixed in a definite plan of action. (Is this why a "private
corporation," known as the "Internal Revenue Service,"
is in charge of collecting the "payments" of the "Income
Taxes" and the IRS always deposits those "payments"
to the Federal Reserve bank and never to the Treasury of the United
And without a definite plan it is impossible to rule. Marching along
an undetermined road and with undetermined resources brings to ruin
by the way heroes and demi-gods.
The GOY rulers, whom we once upon a time advised should be distracted
from State occupations by representative receptions, observances
of etiquette, entertainments, were only screens for our rule. The
accounts of favorite courtiers who replaced them in the sphere of
affairs were drawn up for them by our agents, and every time gave
satisfaction to short-sighted minds by promises that in the future
economics and improvements were foreseen .... Economics from what?
From new taxes? - were questions that might have been but were not
asked by those who read our accounts and projects.
You know to what they have been brought by this carelessness, to
what pitch of financial disorder they have arrived, notwithstanding
the astonishing industry of their peoples ....
To what I reported to you at the last meeting I shall now add a
detailed explanation of internal loans. Of foreign loans I shall
say nothing more, because they have fed us with national moneys
of the GOYIM, but for our State there will be no foreigners, that
is, nothing external.
We have taken advantage of the venality of administrators and slackness
of rulers to get our moneys twice, thrice and more times over, by
lending to the GOY governments moneys which were not at all needed
by the States. Could anyone do the like in regard to us? .... Therefore,
I shall only deal with the details of internal loans.
States announce that such a loan is to be concluded and open subscriptions
for their own bills of exchange, that is, for their interest-bearing
paper. That they may be within the reach of all the price is determined
at from a hundred to a thousand; and a discount is made for the
earliest subscribers. Next day by artificial means the price of
them goes up, the alleged reason being that everyone is rushing
to buy them. In a few days the treasury safes are as they say overflowing
and there's more money than they can do with (why then take it?).
The subscription, it is alleged, covers many times over the issue
total of the loan; in this lies the whole stage effect - look you,
they say, what confidence is shown in the government's bills of
But when the comedy is played out there emerges the fact that a
debit and an exceedingly burdensome debit has been created. For
the payment of interest it becomes necessary to have recourse to
new loans, which do not swallow up but only add to the capital debt.
And when this credit is exhausted it becomes necessary by new taxes
to cover, not the loan, BUT ONLY THE INTEREST ON IT. These taxes
are a debit employed to cover a debit .... (NOW WE NOW OF THE PURPOSE
OF THE BULLSHIT CRY FOR BALANCING THE BUDGET!!)
Later comes the time for conversions, but they diminish the payment
of interest without covering the debt, and besides they cannot be
made without the consent of the lenders; on announcing a conversion
a proposal is made to return the money to those who are not willing
to convert their paper. If everybody expressed his unwillingness
and demanded his money back, the government would be hooked on their
own files and would be found insolvent and unable to pay the proposed
sums. By good luck the subjects of the GOY governments, knowing
nothing about financial affairs, have always preferred losses on
exchange and diminution of interest to the risk of new investments
of their moneys, and have thereby many a time enabled these governments
to throw off their shoulders a debit of several millions.
Nowadays, with external loans, these tricks cannot be played by
the GOYIM for they know that we shall demand all our moneys back.
In this way in acknowledged bankruptcy will best prove to the various
countries the absence of any means between the interest of the peoples
and of those who rule them.
I beg you to concentrate your particular attention upon this point
and upon the following: nowadays all internal loans are consolidated
by so-called flying loans, that is, such as have terms of payment
more or less near. These debts consist of moneys paid into the savings
banks and reserve funds. If left for long at the disposition of
a government these funds evaporate in the payment of interest on
foreign loans, and are placed by the deposit of equivalent amount
And these last it is which patch up all the leaks in the State treasuries
of the GOYIM.
When we ascend the throne of the world all these financial and similar
shifts, as being not in accord with our interests, will be swept
away so as not to leave a trace, as also will be destroyed all money
markets, since we shall not allow the prestige of our power to be
shaken by fluctuations of prices set upon our values, which we shall
announce by law at the price which represents their full worth without
any possibility of lowering or raising. (Raising gives the pretext
for lowering, which indeed was where we made a beginning in relation
to the values of the GOYIM.)
We shall replace the money markets by grandiose government credit
institutions, the object of which will be to fix the price of industrial
values in accordance with government views. These institutions will
be in a position to fling upon the market five hundred millions
of industrial paper in one day, or to buy up for the same amount.
In this way all industrial undertakings will come into dependence
upon us. You may imagine for yourselves what immense power we shall
thereby secure for ourselves ....
In all that has so far been reported by me to you, I have endeavored
to depict with care the secret of what is coming, of what is past,
and of what is going on now, rushing into the flood of the great
events coming already in the near future, the secret of our relations
to the GOYIM and of financial operations. On this subject there
remains still a little for me to add.
IN OUR HANDS IS THE GREATEST POWER OF OUR DAY - GOLD: IN TWO DAYS
WE CAN PROCURE FROM OUR STOREHOUSES ANY QUANTITY WE MAY PLEASE.
Surely there is no need to seek further proof that our rule is predestined
by God? Surely we shall not fail with such wealth to prove that
all that evil which for so many centuries we have had to commit
has served at the end of ends the cause of true well- being - the
bringing of everything into order? Though it be even by the exercise
of some violence, yet all the same it will be established. We shall
contrive to prove that we are benefactors who have restored to the
rent and mangled earth the true good and also freedom of the person,
and therewith we shall enable it to be enjoyed in peace and quiet,
with proper dignity of relations, on the condition, of course, of
strict observance of the laws established by us. We shall make plain
therewith that freedom does not consist in dissipation and in the
right of unbridled license any more than the dignity and force of
a man do not consist in the right of everyone to promulgate destructive
principles in the nature of freedom of conscience, equality and
a like, that freedom of the person in no wise consists in the right
to agitate oneself and others by abominable speeches before disorderly
mobs, and that true freedom consists in the inviolability of the
person who honorably and strictly observes all the laws of life
in common, that human dignity is wrapped up in consciousness of
the rights and also of the absence of rights of each, and not wholly
and solely in fantastic imaginings about the subject of one's EGO.
One authority will be glorious because it will be all-powerful,
will rule and guide, and not muddle along after leaders and orators
shrieking themselves hoarse with senseless words which they call
great principles and which are noting else, to speak honestly, but
utopian .... Our authority will be the crown of order, and in that
is included the whole happiness of man. The aureole of this authority
will inspire a mystical bowing of the knee before it and a reverent
fear before it of all the peoples. True force makes no terms with
any right, not even with that of God: none dare come near to it
so as to take so much as a span from it away.
That the peoples may become accustomed to obedience it is necessary
to inculcate lessons of humility and therefore to reduce the production
of articles of luxury. By this we shall improve morals which have
been debased by emulation in the sphere of luxury. We shall re-establish
small master production which will mean laying a mine under the
private capital of manufactures. This is indispensable also for
the reason that manufacturers on the grand scale often move, though
not always consciously, the thoughts of the masses in directions
against the government. A people of small masters knows nothing
of unemployment and this binds him closely with existing order,
and consequently with the firmness of authority. For us its part
will have ben played out the moment authority is transferred into
our hands. Drunkenness also will be prohibited by law and punishable
as a crime against humanness of man who is turned into a brute under
the influence of alcohol.
Subjects, I repeat once more, give blind obedience only to the strong
hand which is absolutely independent of them, for in it they feel
the sword of defense and support against social scourges .... What
do they want with an angelic spirit in a king? What they have to
see in him is the personification of force and power.
The supreme lord who will replace all now existing ruler, dragging
in their existence among societies demoralized by us, societies
that have denied even the authority of God, from whose midst breads
out on all sides the fire of anarchy, must first of all proceed
to quench this all-devouring flame. Therefore he will be obliged
to kill off those existing societies, though he should drench them
with his own blood, that he may resurrect them again in the form
of regularly organized troops fighting consciously with every kind
of infection that may cover the body of the State with sores.
This Chosen One of God is chosen from above to demolish the senseless
forces moved by instinct and not reason, by brutishness and humanness.
These forces now triumph in manifestations of robbery and every
kind of violence under the mask of principles of freedom and every
kind of violence under the mask of principles of freedom and rights.
They have overthrown all forms of social order to erect on the ruins
of the throne of the King of the Jews; but their part will be played
out the moment he enters into his kingdom. Then it will be necessary
to sweep them away from his path, on which must be left no knot,
Then will it be possible for us to say to the peoples of the world:
Give thanks to God and bow the knee before him who bears on his
front the seal of the predestination of man, to which God himself
has led his star that none other but Him might free us from all
the before-mentioned forces and evils.
I pass now to the method of confirming the dynastic roots of King
David to the last strata of the earth.
This confirmation will first and foremost be included in that which
to this day has rested the force of conservatism by our learned
elders of the conduct of the affairs of the world, in the directing
of the education of thought of all humanity.
Certain members of the seed of David will prepare the kings and
their heirs, selecting not by right of heritage but by eminent capacities,
inducting them into the most secret mysteries of the political,
into schemes of government, but providing always that none may come
to knowledge of the secrets. The object of this mode of action is
that all may know that government cannot be entrusted to those who
have not been inducted into the secret places of its art ....
To these persons only will be taught the practical application of
the forenamed plans by comparison of the experiences of many centuries,
all the observations on the politico-economic moves and social sciences
- in a word, all the spirit of laws which have been unshakably established
by nature herself for the regulation of the relations of humanity.
Direct heirs will often be set aside from ascending the throne if
in their time of training they exhibit frivolity, softness and other
qualities that are the ruin of authority, which render them incapable
of governing and in themselves dangerous for kingly office.
Only those who are unconditionally capable for firm, even if it
be to cruelty, direct rule will receive the reins of rule from our
In case of falling sick with weakness of will or other form of incapacity,
kings must by law hand over the reins of rule to new and capable
The king's plan of action for the current moment, and all the more
so for the future, will be unknown, even to those who are called
his closest counselors.
OF THE JEWS
Only the king and the three who stood sponsor for him will know
what is coming.
In the person of the king who with unbending will is master of himself
and of humanity all will discern as it were fate with its mysterious
ways. None will know what the king wishes to attain by his dispositions,
and therefore none will dare to stand across an unknown path.
It is understood that the brain reservoir of the king must correspond
in capacity to the plan of government it has to contain. It is for
this reason that he will ascend the throne not otherwise than after
examination of his mind by the aforesaid learned elders.
That the people may know and love their king, it is indispensable
for him to converse in the market-places with his people. This ensures
the necessary clinching of the two forces which are now divided
one from another by us by the terror.
This terror was indispensable for us till the time comes for both
these forces separately to fall under our influence.
The king of the Jews must not be at the mercy of his passions, and
especially of sensuality: on no side of his character must he give
brute instincts power over his mind. Sensuality worse than all else
disorganizes the capacities of the mind and clearness of views,
distracting the thoughts to the worst and most brutal side of human
The prop of humanity in the person of the supreme lord of all the
world of the holy seed of David must sacrifice to his people all
Our supreme lord must be of an exemplary irreproachable.
