[socialism] and the myths we're fed

Treaty of Rome

Leon Trotsky [of icepick fame] was reported to have said:

"throughout the whole history of the British Labour movement there has been pressure by the bourgeoisie upon the proletariat through the agency of radicals, intellectuals, drawing-room and church socialists and Owenites who reject the class struggle and advocate the principle of social solidarity, preach collaboration with the bourgeoisie, bridle, enfeeble and politically debase the proletariat.”

Leon, get knotted. You can talk, having been smuggled into Russia with the collusion of Morgan associates.

Now the Higham confession. When I were a wee lad, I went by the old adage that:

Anyone who wasn't a socialist in his youth had no heart. Anyone who is still a socialist in his old age has never grown up.

... and I was a paid up member of the Fabians. At university, I was on the secretariat of the Anarchist Revolutionary Students in Education [ARSE] and we sent all our demands to the Vice-Chancellor on loo roll. Then followed a stint as secretary of the Apathy Club, members being on pain of excommunication if they ever attended our irregularly scheduled and then postponed meetings.


It took me two years to wake up and become a signed up member of the Young Conservatives, which ushered in an era of really fabulous knees-ups, private swimming luncheons and bonhomie. Flushed with the success of my new bourgeois, imperialist-running-dog, exploitative capitalism, a group of us set up and registered Truly Ruly Enterprises Ltd, a company limited by guarantee and hosting wonderfully liquid board meetings, where it was wise to conclude the main business about fifteen minutes into the exercise.

The trouble is, there are two kinds of socialists - the vicious, nasty, enslave-the-world head honchos [Mandelson, Sutherland and their lackeys] and then a second type.

This second type you find among our blogfriends at this site, at your site, generously sprinkled about and the thing which characterizes them is their niceness and genuine love of humanity. Every time one of us writes a scathing post on socialism, they are genuinely hurt by it and wish we could see that it is the only fair way in the world, that so many people are in dire straits and the state needs to, nay, must help out the less fortunate and that there must be a safety net for the incapable, the disabled and so on and so on.

This love of humanity manifests itself in multi-culturalism, i.e. the right of all people, white, black and orange to have a say and a vote, the right of all people to free speech, the right to state assistance with their family and the right to a slice of the national pie. That's about as far as the usual socialist political consciousness goes.

What is not in their consciousness is that their sweet utopianism is susceptible to the carrot used by the hardliners who really do not have the love of humanity at heart one little bit and who know, cynically and full well, what certain policies lead to and what they enable.

Here are some quotes from hardliners:

Abolition of all ordered governments, private property, inheritance, patriotism, the family, religion and the creation of a world government [1776, Weishaupt]

Far from this being the rantings of one isolated kook, George Washington commented, in 1798:

"It is not my intention to doubt that ... the principles of Jacobinism had not spread in the United States. On the contrary, no one is more satisfied of this fact than I am."

Jefferson added [in 1816?], concerning the control of the means of wealth:

"If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered."


British Illuminist [the name did not then have quite the worldwide connotations of the current day] Frances "Fanny" Wright, in 1829, gave a series of lectures in the United States, where she announced that various subversives and revolutionaries were to be united in a movement that would be called "Communism." She explained that the movement was to be made more acceptable to the public by professing to support "equal opportunity" and "equal rights."

Marx continued the deception but what most don't know is that he was a member of the League of the Just, which supported the Weishaupt principles above.

John Ruskin, in 1870, was named Professor of Fine Arts at Oxford University and taught his students that the government should take control of all means of production and distribution, and that he was prepared to place control of the government in the hands of a single man:

"My continual aim has been to show the eternal superiority of some men to others, sometimes even of one man to all others."

This is the constant error small "s' socialists make and have always made - they really believe that, in a redistributed utopia, they will be empowered.

Er ... quite the opposite, in fact.

Cecil Rhodes, on Feb. 5, 1891, combined his group from Oxford with a similar group from Cambridge headed by William Stead. Rhodes and Stead were members of the inner "Circle of Initiates", there also being an outer circle known as the "Association of Helpers." Their agenda was the same.


Lord Alfred Milner, from 1909 to 1913, organized the "Association of Helpers" into various Round Table Groups in the British dependencies and the United States.

Around the same time, Congressman Charles Lindbergh Snr charged:

"This act [establishing the Fed] establishes the most gigantic trust on earth. When the President signs this act the invisible government by the monetary power, proven to exist by the Money Trust investigation, will be legalized … The worst legislative crime of the ages is perpetrated by this banking and currency Bill."

This placed real power in the hands of twelve banks and those present on Jeckyll Island three years earlier , to set it up, were a Who's Who of the same Weishaupt/Wright/Rhodes/Ruskin political outlook.

This is the mammoth lie believed by the "nice" socialists of my acquaintance - that it is the Capitalists [and this includes, in their minds everyone from the giant internationals to the chains of stores across the nation] who brought on the crash and the new depression of our current era.

The deception is that while it is impossible to defend the outright and indefensible greed of speculators and futures players, they are still pawns in a game induced by the international socialists, people such as House and Warburg who understood the power contained within human ambition. The aim has never altered and always comes back to the first quote above.


To continue:

In 1921, Colonel House reorganized the American branch of the Institute of International Affairs into the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR). Since that time, the only President to have not been directly affiliated with the CFR was John F. Kennedy. Kennedy Special Adviser John Kenneth Galbraith said:

"Those of us who had worked for the Kennedy election were tolerated in the government for that reason and had a say, but foreign policy was still with the Council on Foreign Relations people."

Incidentally, regarding Obama, a Paulist supporter recently stated this:

Barack Obama may not an official member of the Council on Foreign Relations. Nevertheless, he and his presidential campaign are incontrovertibly affiliated with and supported by numerous (corporate) CFR members. His wife, Michelle Obama, is a member of a branch of the CFR in Chicago. The Obama campaign has taken major contributions from corporate CFR members such as:

JP Morgan Chase & Co - $282,387
Goldman Sachs - $474,428
Lehman Brothers - $274,147
UBS (ag) - $298,180
Citigroup - $247,436
Google - $192,808
Time Warner - $190,091

Back to the timeline

Concerning the Great Depression and the country's acceptance of FDR's New Deal, Congressman Louis McFadden asserted, around 1931, before his unfortunate demise:

"It was no accident. It was a carefully contrived occurrence. The international bankers sought to bring about a condition of despair here so they might emerge as the rulers of us all."

The "Plan for Peace" by American Birth Control League founder Margaret Sanger was published in 1932. She called for coercive sterilization, mandatory segregation, and rehabilitative concentration camps for all "dysgenic stocks," including Blacks, Hispanics, American Indians and Catholics. The American Birth Control League eventually became Planned Parenthood.

Not many are aware of that.

The appropriately named Faust

HG Wells proposed, in 1939:

... a "collectivist one-world state" or "new world order" comprised of "socialist democracies." He advocated "universal conscription for service" and declared that "nationalist individualism is the world's disease."

He continued: "The manifest necessity for some collective world control to eliminate warfare and the less generally admitted necessity for a collective control of the economic and biological life of mankind, are aspects of one and the same process."

He proposed that this be accomplished through "universal law" and "propaganda".

Moving on, the Senate Foreign Relations Subcommittee introduced, on Feb. 9, 1950, the Senate Concurrent Resolution #66 which began:

"Whereas, in order to achieve universal peace and justice, the present Charter of the United Nations should be changed to provide a true world government constitution."

The resolution was introduced by Senator Glen Taylor (D-Idaho), who later stated:

"We would have to sacrifice considerable sovereignty to the world organization to enable them to levy taxes in their own right to support themselves."

This guiding principle was neither more nor less than the current NAAC proposal for the NAU, due to begin on March 23rd, 2009. It comes to the same erosion of national sovereignty.

They never stop, these people:

The World Federalist Movement stemmed from The World Association of Parliamentarians for World Government [set up in 1951] which drew up a map designed to illustrate how foreign troops would occupy and police the six regions into which the United States and Canada would be divided as part of their world government plan.


Rowan Gaither, President of the Ford Foundation, told a Congressional commission investigating tax-exempt foundations, in 1953:

"We at the executive level here were active in either the OSS [forerunner of the CIA], the State Department, or the European Economic Administration. During those times, and without exception, we operated under directives issued by the White House. We are continuing to be guided by just such directives, the substance of which were to the effect that we should make every effort to so alter life in the United States as to make possible a comfortable merger with the Soviet Union."

That's on the Congressional record. It's not made up - check for yourselves. Norman Thomas, who six times was the candidate of the Socialist Party for President of the United States, observed, in 1959:

"The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism, but under the name Liberalism they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program until America will one day be a Socialist nation without knowing how it happened."

And so it goes on:

"The Future of Federalism" by Nelson Rockefeller, in 1962, claimed that current events compellingly demanded a "new world order." He said there was:

"A fever of nationalism...but the nation-state is becoming less and less competent to perform its international political tasks...These are some of the reasons pressing us to lead vigorously toward the true building of a new world order...Sooner perhaps than we may realize...there will evolve the bases for a federal structure of the free world."

A document entitled "Marriage and the Family" was published by the British Humanist Association, in 1969, stating that:

"some opponents of humanism have accused us of wishing to overthrow the traditional Christian family. They are right. That is exactly what we intend to do."


President Carter's National Security Advisor, Zbigniew Brzezinski, wrote a book in 1970 entitled "Between Two Ages." He stated:

Marxism is simultaneously a victory of the external, active man over the inner, passive man and a victory of reason over belief...Marxism, disseminated on the popular level in the form of communism, represents a major advance in man's ability to conceptualize his relationship to the world."

In his keynote address to the Association for Childhood Education International in 1972, Chester M. Pierce, Professor of Education and Psychiatry in the Faculty of Medicine at Harvard University, proclaimed:

"Every child in America entering school at the age of five is insane because he comes to school with certain allegiances toward our founding fathers, toward his parents, toward a belief in a supernatural being. It's up to you, teachers, to make all of these sick children well by creating the international child of the future."

Observe the result today. You think that was a one off by a fruitcake? What about this? Catherine Barrett, former president of the National Education Association, wrote, on Feb. 10, 1973, that:

"dramatic changes in the way we will raise our children in the year 2000 are indicated, particularly in terms of schooling. We will need to recognize that the so-called 'basic skills,' which currently represent nearly the total effort in elementary schools, will be taught in one-quarter of the present school day. When this happens - and it's near - the teacher can rise to his true calling. More than a dispenser of information, the teacher will be a conveyor of values, a philosopher. We will be agents of change."

On May 18, 1972, Roy M. Ash, Director of the U.S. Office of Management and Budget, declared that:

"...within two decades the institutional framework for a world economic community will be in place...and aspects of individual sovereignty will be given over to a supernational authority."


The Club of Rome issued a report, in 1973, entitled "Regionalized and Adaptive Model of the Global World System." This report divided the entire world into ten kingdoms. Now this is a supposedly high-capitalist money lender. What would they be doing drawing up world boundaries? Their brief is purely fiscal, surely?

Did all this end in the modern era? Not a bit of it.

In 1981, Congressman Larry McDonald called for comprehensive congressional investigation of the CFR and Trilateral Commission. In 1983, he was killed, along with 268 other passengers on Korean Air Lines (KAL) flight 007, shot down over Sakhalin Island in the Sea of Japan.

More recently, CBS reported:

Under the classified "Continuity of Operations Plan," which was first reported by The Post in its Friday editions, high-ranking officials representing their departments have begun rotating in and out of the assignment at one of two fortified locations along the East Coast.

The Post said the first rotations were made in late October or early November, a fact confirmed by a senior government official late Thursday. Officials who are activated for the duty live and work underground 24 hours a day, away from their families, according to the Post.

The shadow government has sent home most of the first wave of deployed personnel, replacing them most commonly at 90-day intervals.

When quizzed on this, George Bush replied:

"I have an obligation as the president and my administration has an obligation to the American people to put measures in place that should somebody be successful in attacking Washington there is an ongoing government," Mr. Bush said. "That is one reason why the vice president was going to undisclosed locations. This is serious business. And we take it seriously."

Very serious business indeed - ensuring the survival of the leadership while the population is left to fend for itself. This can go on and on, quote after quote.

Mother of Darkness

In summary

There are two kinds of socialists - the dangerous type, quoted at length above and comprising ostensibly GOP and Democrat, Conservative and Labour supporting pollies, along with CP, Demos, Mandelson, Sutherland and their ilk, who are pursuing a policy of the impoverishment and enslavement of the people under the lure of spoils and their own "personal safety" in the coming disintegration ...

... and then there is a different type.

These are the "lesser people", like you and me, some having swallowed the Marxist guff from the "great thinkers" who permeate every aspect of life from schools to the law, to medicine, to the media, film and literature, from the greens to the "isms" of the current day and who see a better world of fairness and justice ..

They're not far away, in their basic sense of humanity, from the small "c" conservatives who believe in free enterprise, the right to make of oneself what one can, the values of family and faith, of freedom of speech and a sense of real justice.

The small "s" socialists, good people at heart, just cannot see, in those hearts, that the ideal they aspire to is an impossibility, for the same reason as in 1917 Russia and everywhere else revolutions have taken place - namely that there is an organized, all-pervasive network of people across the globe, with a financial and business leadership in charge, who hijack any socialist agenda for their one world purposes and use coercion and clandestine planning to achieve it.

No one I know who comes under the misnomer right wing would not support care and assistance for the needy or wouldn't help out a friend in need get back on track; no small "t" tory I know is not compassionate. No one I know begrudges a certain amount of tax to help out with these things.

The U.N. meditation room - the relativist religion of the new order

The small people are people, after all and in this respect, we're not so far apart.

Where the enormous difference is, is that those who vaguely label themselves socialist have swallowed the notion that coercion and legislation by government can produce a fairer society, that you can force someone else to give up what he has worked for and give it to people who have no intention of working.

They've crossed the line, these small "s" socialists, the moment they feel that coercion and the big stick, that the enforced redistribution of this mythical and static "wealth", the so-called National Pie, is fair in itself.

You see, there is no National Pie.

The national pie is no more than the sum total of workers producing things and selling them and everyone works best when it is for his own family and there is a personal goal in it.

You can't legislate away people's incentives and force people to accept that state of affairs because lurking behind the principle of enforced redistribution is also the principle of enforced restriction on freedoms, on the right to free speech on the freedom to associate and also lurking behind it is the gathering of the means of sustenance into a central place to be meted out as, when and how the secretariat sees fit.

Not only that but the ability of people to produce for themselves is actually then outlawed and dissent is taken care of through the latent criminalization of the citizen by means of the explosion in new laws.

Yes, the small "s" socialist decries the greedy bankers and speculators; yes the small "s" socialist cries that there is no social justice. Yes, yes and yes - you are correct in this. We totally agree. But going the path of Big Brother and the coercion route is the road to hell, the road to the elite concept of the world as outlined in the quotes above.

Please wake up and realize that the war is between the internationalists who are using the naivety of idealistic people and people with genuine grievances, e.g. the women's movement, using them, hijacking and twisting their agendas

... and the ordinary people, homo sapiens, will be the sufferers. That means you and me.


UPDATE: Fortuitously, Ian Parker Joseph also posted on this matter and brought my attention to Postman Patel's post, pointing out that where I wrote this:

The World Federalist Movement stemmed from The World Association of Parliamentarians for World Government [set up in 1951] which drew up a map designed to illustrate how foreign troops would occupy and police the six regions into which the United States and Canada would be divided as part of their world government plan.

Postman Patel wrote, in his post:

He predicted that the U.S. will break up into six parts - the Pacific coast, with its growing Chinese population; the South, with its Hispanics; Texas, where independence movements are on the rise; the Atlantic coast, with its distinct and separate mentality; five of the poorer central states with their large Native American populations; and the northern states, where the influence from Canada is strong.

Ian rightly points out that that is a very large coincidence to swallow.

This report has also been covered at All Voices. H/T Kevin.

Nice one!

I'm still looked at askance whenever I raise this subject so I've been coming at it from the angle of fiat money. Most do not know anything about it. I can only hope that they start thinking and then questioning the status quo.

It will be a long struggle.

Two things struck me: Brown & Darlings wish to put us perpetually in hock to these people and happily, a comment I've seen today on other blogs about two organisations in USA who seem to be starting a movement for asset based banks.

I'll post the links once I've found them.


Anonymous said...

Congratulation, James.

I'll add to your blog with a few current links.
These links illustrate the (to me) final acts in the drama you lay out.

They concern the state aid, bailouts being given throughout the globe.
They won't work, as we are too far down the fiat spiral as I explained previously.

I have no time to construct a narrative around them, but I am sure you are on the ball, and if you've understood my previous comments, you'll understand.

Pay particular attention to the final link which is a video of Marc Faber, who says very shortly the Global Economy will implode, which accords with my opinions expressed here recently.










And this doesn't include the $300Bn Citi bailout this weekend

And finally, Dr Faber!!

All these bailouts in the US will maintain the existing power structure. Obama admin selections are almost exclusively CFR members and part of the team that has been destroying the US and the World economy for the last few decades.

This is the total destruction of the living standards of the G7 middle class, which is why in the previous blog I was asking if the standards in Bulgaria in the mid '80s would happen here.

Broon and his darling have little comprehension of the problems and so the solution eludes them. Their cure is geared to win the election coming shortly, and that means maintaining the status quo.
At this point, win or loose, the economic UK die is cast.

The UK is the least well placed of the G7 to withstand the tsunami approaching. Our exports are bits of paper. Highly dependent on financial services, the sector hit the hardest, our GDP will contract significantly.
The £ will fall heavily.

The threshold of Post Democratic High Tech Feudalism looms.

Sackerson said...

Scholarly stuff, James, and it overmatches my grasp of history. I think your juvenile instinct was correct - anarchism dreams of order without authority. The nearest we can get to that in practice is a belled cat, which the US Constitution was set up to create, and which, as you say, central banks and other powers subvert, unfortunately.

CherryPie said...

Nicely researched and written.

The problem with our current government is they have moved away from their left wing stance and are actually now right wing authoritarians which is why the rich are getting richer etc.

Thud said...

This took some getting through as most blogs are made up of little soundbites....well worth the effort though.

James Higham said...

Sorry not to get back here earlier or to your blogs today. RL impinged but will be into tomorrow.


Excellent post, James!

I am stunned at Planned Parenthood's real history!

It all comes down to my favourite quote, by Stalin, no less.
'You got people- you got problems.
No people-no problems.'

What can we do when it seems we are at the tail end of such a long, well thought out plan?

Is it too late to change course?

I think so.

Sackerson said...

Worth republishing from time to time, perhaps as extracts. You've hit on a major theme here - the US and socialism - which will be highly relevant over the next years. Many of your American readers will want to see this, and more of this.

James Higham said...

Thank you for that and there have been emails about it, picking up on a point or two here and there, which is fine as I wish to be accurate.

I plan to go round to blogs I know who treat this theme and scour them for their posts on it, then link them below.

This is for the weekend, I think.

Wolfie said...

This is a superb post James, well done. Perfect timing too as we live in perilous times, depressing that it is to me that we should be revisiting unlearned lessons of history bleached of their meaning in the propaganda cesspool that used to be education. Thank God my Father is deceased, it would enrage him to know that most of his childhood friends died for nothing.

Kevin said...

You very well articulate your views, and substantiate them with researched facts and context. I think you should also post them in allvoices (http://www.allvoices.com/incentive/advertising) for a better reach.
