The political world of the Open Conspiracy must weaken, efface, incorporate and supersede existing governments. The Open Conspiracy is the natural inheritor of socialist and communist euphemisms; it may be in the control of Moscow before it is in the control of New York. The character of the Open Conspiracy will now be plainly displayed. It will be a world religion. This large loose assimilatory mass of groups and societies will definitely and obviously attempt to swallow up the entire population of the world and become a new human community. Then again: The organization of this that I call the Open Conspiracy, which will ultimately supply teaching coercive and direct public services to the whole world is the immediate task before all people, a planned World State is appearing at a thousand points. When accident (or crisis) finally precipitates it, it’s coming is likely to happen very quickly. Sometimes I feel that generations of propaganda and education may have to precede it. There must be a common faith and law for mankind.

Have we all become like eunuchs, castrated by our delusions of democracy and our post-election self-congratulatory hubris ? To lose our scepticism and justified, historically based, suspicions about the veracity of the "democratic" process, that has proven itself to be so very hollow over the past 100 plus years of America's presidential elections may be leading us all over the proverbial cliff. The great investor of the last century, Sir John Templeton, famously once said that the four most dangerous words in the English language were, "it's different this time." There has never been a more important time in the life of this nation, for its citizens and, very likely, for all of humanity to be reminded that it is very, very rarely different. This is particularly so when dealing with the illusions of democracy created to numb us all into a state of self-satisfied somnolence.
History, the mostly perverted chronicling of the past by the powers that control its message, is a seemingly dead subject for most Americans and our true history, the one based on fact and a reality deprived to the casual observer, is understood by very few indeed. Presidential candidates are chosen, not elected, and though the backroom deals, bribes and coercion that was evidenced in many of the past elections is relatively plain to see, in the modern era far more subtlety has been employed by the king makers, the hidden hands. Yet, the history of campaign promises, the lies that the chosen candidate feeds to a gullible public, lies that are designed by minds from Madison Avenue and its original source of the power of propaganda memes, the Tavistock Institute, which birthed Edward Bernays and Walter Lippmann, makes it abundantly clear that what candidates say they support are nothing more than well phrased, meaningless sound bites.
How many remember that Woodrow Wilson was reelected in 1916 on the phrase "he kept us out of the war", or that Franklin Roosevelt (see his once famous, now forgotten Pittsburg campaign speech below) was elected on the promise to restore fiscal sanity to the American government by balancing the budget, and again in 1940 when FDR aggressively promised to keep America out of another major war? Practically every President since over the past 40 years had promised to balance the budget, and not through gimmickry like Clinton? Wilson had promised his minders that America would enter the war and laid the groundwork for a "remember the Maine" event which he found in the sinking of the Lusitania. Roosevelt quickly reneged on his fiscal and government slimming promises and it was he and his administration that set up Pearl Harbor as the next "remember the Maine" event in order to push America into World War.
The list goes on and on. It will always go on and on, for the gullible and docile public can always be fooled. Why change the script if it works? The power elites and the hidden hand of the Committee of 300, as John Coleman termed them, whatever one wished to call the real rulers of America and the entire West, win. They always win. Why have we all seemingly abandoned our better judgement over Trump, perhaps through the same mental processes that allowed the absurdity of the Hopey, Changey Obama to aggressively support Wall Street, drop more bombs, drone kill with abandon and sell more military hardware to the world than his predecessor, as well as, push America closer to bankruptcy and lay the wreath on the American middle-class, to obliviate all rational thought among his blind followers.
How is it that the promises made in 2016 and rejected in 2017 are all sublimated into a rationalization that the President is doing these things in order to achieve greater things in the future? This is a dangerous thought and frankly, it is total Bullshit. We, the people of America must fight, but we won't. We must march on Washington and defend our freedoms, but we won't. We must stop the insanity of the Empires pursuit of war, but we won't. It may be too late for any of this to occur now, except, perhaps out of the ashes of a destroyed civilization.
These are excellent and must watch, a Must--Please, before it is too late.
