"In the matter of the authorship, the American writer *F. Fry, following upon investigations carried out in Russia by Henry Ford, states that the Protocols are the work of the Jewish writer
and leader Achad Haam (Ascher Ginsberg), and that they originated in Odessa. Certain
circumstances go to show that the Protocols – perhaps following upon the lines of a concept
by Achad Haam – formed the subject of a lecture in French Masonic Lodges. The bases for this supposition are the following, namely: that Freemason policy follows the lines of the Protocols, and that S.A. Nilus tells us that the copy which came into his hands in 1901
bore the following inscription: 'Signed by the Representatives of Zion of the 33rd Degree.'"
[*I believe there is a typo in the name "F. Fry". I'm reasonably certain that the author meant "L. Fry", which would refer to Mrs. Leslie Fry, pen name for Paquita Louise de Shishmareff, who published an important book in 1931 titled Waters Flowing Eastward~Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Supplements). She introduced the Protocols to Henry Ford in 1920.]
It is now known that Ginsburg (Achad Haam) was not the author of the Protocols as stated in the above 1938 booklet, but rather was a zealous promoter and disseminator of its teachings among his early radicalized group called the Sons of Moses.
Evidence is presented in the Introduction, seen further below, that the strategies of subversion and undermining touted in the Protocls were employed by the Elders of Zion in earlier epochs, including the time of Cromwell and the French Revolution of 1788.
The Protocols include the text of a document divided into 24 subheadings (protocols) that formed the subject of a lecture presented among the inner circle of Zion in French Masonic Lodges in the latter decades of the 19th century.
Quoting from the booklet:
"The bases for this supposition are the following, namely: that Freemason policy follows the lines of the Protocols, and that S.A. Nilus tells us that the copy which came into his hands in 1901 bore the following inscription: "Signed by the Representatives of Zion of the 33rd Degree."
While the term "protocols" technically refers to the minutes of the proceedings of the Learned Elders of Zion, the document implies a blueprint or strategy to follow in order to achieve the desired goals stated within. The Protocols were a subject of discussion at the First Zionist Congress held in in Basel, Switzerland (spelled Basle at the time) from August 29-31 in 1897 [the Protocols were not conceived or created at the First Zionist Congress as some have erroneously asserted. In 1884, the daughter of a Russian general living in Paris, Mademoiselle Justine Glinka, paid Joseph Schoerst (alias Shapiro), a member of the Jewish Mizraim Masonic Lodge, the sum of 2,500 francs for a "document [which] contained extraordinary dictated writings from assorted speeches which would later be included in the final compilation of the Protocols of Zion." Schoerst was later murdered in Egypt.]
The first Zionist Congress was headed up by Theodor Herzl. Subsequent Zionist congresses were held on an almost yearly basis up to 1913 (World War I intervened from 1914-1918), and then resumed again in 1921. The ideas and beliefs expressed in these protocols are so hideous and repugnant to the sensibilities of any normal person of good will, that the English translator, Victor E. Marsden, could only work on translating Nilus' 1905 Russian version of the Protocols (at the British Museum) for one hour per day due to his revulsion with the concepts being promoted. The demented individuals who embrace these concepts consider themselves a special and separate category of humanity who were chosen by "God" to rule over all other men on this planet and establish a simple two tier feudal society: one with Zionist elites at the top and worker serfs below them.
[Note: Some Zionists have admitted that they worship Lucifer. Michael A. Hoffman presents convincing evidence in his massive 1100 page tome, Judaism Discovered (2008), that Judaism is a self worship, racist, pagan construct. A brash, 29 year old Zionist egotist, Harold W. Rosenthal, then administrative assistance to Senator Jacob Javits of New York, revealed in a remarkably candid 1976 interview with Walter White Jr (who was viciously attacked and beaten on March 13, 1978 as a consequence of its publication) that Judaism is a Lucifer worshipping cult:
"Most Jews do not like to admit it, but our god is Lucifer -- so I wasn't lying -- and we are his chosen people. Lucifer is very much alive."
Rosenthal was murdered a few months after his startling admissions to Walter White Jr. in a (likely Mossad-staged) sky-jacking attempt in Istanbul, Turkey on August 12, 1976]
Zionists and Talmudists consider non-Jews (disparagingly referred to as "Goy" or "Goyim") to be the equivalent of cattle and therefore should be afforded no more concern for the "rights" of the subhuman Goyim than one would grant to a herd of steer or sheep.
You will notice that the strategies of dominance and control expostulated here in the Protocols, secretly taught among an elite, Jewish inner circle in French Masonic lodges in the latter decades of the 19th century - such as the use of fiat paper from Zionist owned banks to replace currency backed by gold - along with
the destruction of the nuclear family unit, control of the school curriculum, the destruction of Christianity (currently focused on demonizing the Catholic Church, Catholic priests, the Vatican, the Pope, and the Jesuits), and a belief in God, the end of inidvidual freedoms of any stripe, the creation of "terrorism" to frighten the Goyim into clamoring for safety over the safeguarding of constitutional rights, etc., etc., etc. is today being followed and employedexactlyas laid out by Zionist planners in the 19th century.
While Zionists and their agents are dispersed world wide, the embodiment of the snake of Zionism (the symbol used by Zionists themselves to represent their world conquest mission) resides with those who control the state of Israel. I bear no ill will toward Israelis who do not embrace Zionism, but I am mindful that the Zionists in control of that tiny nation have wielded enormous influence upon American politicians (especially the many dual citizen Israeli fifth columnists in congress), who in turn, have burdened the American taxpayer with the cost of funding the strife, oppression, and terrorism which Zionist Israel has wreaked upon so many defenseless and vulnerable people around the world. For the twisted minds who embrace these precepts, there is no lower limit to the degree of deceit, dishonesty, abuse, trickery, cruelty, or killing that the Talmud tells them that they are allowed to employ in order to achieve their goals of a One World feudal society in which merely staying alive in order to serve the Zionist masters and enjoy even one more day of life, will be the ONLY
concern of the Goyim 'workers' ]
Greg Felton; America is now fully controlled by Zionists says Canadian researcher
Published on Feb 24, 2014
The author of this translation [Victor E. Marsden] of the famous Protocols was himself a victim
of the [1917 Russian] 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 [British press], 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 [Aug. 31, 1918] that Captain [Francis] 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. It 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.
Mr. 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 brief illness [on October 28, 1920].
May 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 ZION."
Of the Protocols themselves little need be said in the way of introduction. The book in which they are embodied was first published in the year 1897 by Philip Stepanov for private circulation among his intimate friends. The first time SergyeiNilus published them was in 1901 in a book called The Great Within the Small and reprinted 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 own purposes.
"The 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."
Indeed they do!
The word "Protocol" signifies a precis 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.
The 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. There
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
The 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. And here is another very significant circumstance.
The present successor of Herzl, as leader of the Zionist
movement, Dr. Chaim 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.) Now compare this with the last clause of but one of Protocol XI.
"God 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."
The 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..
Who Are the Elders?
This 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: "Three
hundred men, each of whom knows all the others, govern the fate of the European
continent, and they elect their successors from their entourage."
In 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: "The world is governed by very different personages from what
is imagined by those who are not behind the scenes." And he went on
to show that these personages were all Jews.
Now 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 [fundamentally] their attitude towards the Race and Nation
which boasts of its survival over all Empires.
Notes I. - "Agentur" and "The Political."
There 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. By "the Political" Mr. Marsden means, not exactly
the "body politic" but the entire machinery of politics.
Notes II - The Symbolic Snake of Judaism. Protocol 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: "According 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. By Alain Roth, 1915 Jewish New Year Postcard
Leviathan, from Jewish New Year Postcard
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.
Fox-TV Ad for Millenium seires
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 "Council 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.
Notes III. - The term "Goyim," meaning Gentile
or non-Jews, is used throughout the Protocols and is retained by Mr. Marsden.
PROTOCOLS OF THE MEETINGS OF THE LEARNED ELDERS OF ZION
1. ....Putting aside fine phrases we shall speak of the significance
of each thought: by comparisons and deductions we shall throw light upon
2. 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-
3. 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.
4. What has restrained the beasts of prey who are called
men? What has served for their guidance hitherto?
5. 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.
6. 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.
7. 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.
8. 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.
9. 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 commonweal, be called immoral and not permissible?
10. 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.
11. 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.
MIGHT IS RIGHT
12. 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
13. Where does right begin? Where does it end?
14. 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
15. 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.
16. 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
17. 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.
18. 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.
19. Only one trained from childhood for independent rule
can have understanding of the words that can be made up of the political
20. A people left to itself, i.e., to upstarts from its midst,
brings itself to ruin by party dissensions 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.
WE ARE DESPOTS
21. 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 of savagery.
22. 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.
23. 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.
24. 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
WE SHALL END LIBERTY
25. 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.
26. 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.
27. 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
28. 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.
29. 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.
1. 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.
2. 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 we want.
3. 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.
4. 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.
5. 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 GOYIM.
1. 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.
2. 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.
3. 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 ....
4. 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.
POVERTY OUR WEAPON
5. 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.
WE SUPPORT COMMUNISM
6. 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.
7. 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.
8. 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.
9. 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.
10. 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 promptings 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.
JEWS WILL BE SAFE
11. 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 loot.
12. "OURS" THEY WILL NOT TOUCH, BECAUSE THE MOMENT
OF ATTACK WILL BE KNOWN TO US AND WE SHALL TAKE MEASURES TO PROTECT OUR
13. 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.
14. 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 our hands.
15 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.
16. 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.
17. 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?
18. 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.
19. 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.
20. 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
21. 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
1. 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.
2. 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
WE SHALL DESTROY GOD
3. 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 negatived 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.
4. 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.
5. 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
1. 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.
2. 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 is.
3. 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
MASSES LED BY LIES
4. Moreover, the art of directing masses and individuals
by means of cleverly manipulated theory and verbitage, 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.
5. 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.
6. 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.
7. 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 ELOQUENCE.
8. 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.
9. 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.
10. 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.
11. 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.
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
1. 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 ...
2. You gentlemen here present who are economists, just strike
an estimate of the significance of this combination! ...
3. 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.
4. 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 unconditional submission.
5. The aristocrats of the GOYIM, being hereditarily incapable
of contenting themselves with little, will rapidly burn up and fizzle out.
WE SHALL ENSLAVE GENTILES
6. 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 exist.
7. 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."
8. 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
1. 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.
2. 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.
3. 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 war.
4. The principal factor of success in the political is the
secrecy of its undertakings: the word should not agree with the deeds of
5. 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.
In a word, to sum up our system of keeping the governments
of the goyim in Europe in check, we shall show our strength to one of them
byterrorist attempts and to all, if we allow the possibility of a general
rising against us, we shall respond with the guns of America or China or
1. 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. 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 ambition.
2. 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
3. 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.
1. 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.
2. 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.
3. 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.
4. 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.
5. 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.
6. 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.
7. 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.
8. 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.
9. 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.
CHRISTIAN YOUTH DESTROYED
10. 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.
11. 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.
12. This is the origin of the theory of course of arbitration.
13. 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 maneuver 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
1. 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
2. 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!" ...
OUR GOAL - WORLD POWER
3. 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.
4. 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.
5. 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.
6. 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 plotting. 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.
7. 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.
POISON OF LIBERALISM
8. 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.
9. 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.
10. 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.
WE NAME PRESIDENTS
11. In the near future we shall establish the responsibility
12. 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? ...
13. 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 constitution.
14. 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.
15. 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.
16. 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.
WE SHALL DESTROY
17. 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.
18. 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."
19. 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.
20. But if we give the nations of the world a breathing space
the moment we long for is hardly likely ever to arrive.
1. 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.
2. 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.
3. 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.
WE ARE WOLVES
4. 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? ....
5. 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 ....
6. It is not worth to say anything about how long a time
they will be kept waiting for this return of their liberties ....
7. 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.
8. 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.
9. There now remains not much more for us to build up upon
the foundation we have laid.
1. The word "freedom," which can be interpreted
in various ways, is defined by us as follows -
2. 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
3. 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
WE CONTROL THE PRESS
4. 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 to them.
5. 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 ....
6. 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 ....
FREE PRESS DESTROYED
7. 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.
8. 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 rendered
9. 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.
10. In the second rank will be the semi-official organs,
whose part it will be to attack the tepid and indifferent.
11. 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.
12. 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.
13. 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 and controverting, 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.
14. 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.
ONLY LIES PRINTED
15. 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 tranquilize 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
16. 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
17. 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.
18. 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.
19. 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.
1. 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 creators.
2. 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 hope,
joined to the conviction, that we are serving the common weal.
WE DECEIVE WORKERS
3. 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 disaccustomed 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.
4. 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.
5. 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.
6. 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?
1. 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 tranquility, though it be a tranquility 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 tranquility 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.
WE SHALL FORBID CHRIST
2. 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 ....
3. 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.
4. 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 ITS SECRETS.
5. 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 by us.
1. 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 rule.
2. Resolutions of our government will be final, without appeal.
3. 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.
4. 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, ET CETERA.
5. 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 ....
GENTILES ARE STUPID
6. 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 assimilate 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
7. 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.
GENTILES ARE CATTLE
8. 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 from destruction.
9. 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 unquestioningly submission.
10. 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.
11. 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.
WE DEMAND SUBMISSION
12. 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
13. 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 life.
14. 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.
15. 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 administration.
16. Let us borrow from the example of the results of these
actions yet another lesson for our government.
17. 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.
WE SHALL BE CRUEL
18. 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.
19. 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.
20. 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.
21. 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.
22. 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.
23. 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.
24. 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.
Top of Protocols
1. In order to effect the destruction of all collective forces
except ours we shall emasculate the first stage of collectivism - the UNIVERSITIES,
by reeducating 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.
2. 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 preeminent 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.
3. 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.
WE SHALL CHANGE HISTORY
4. 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.
5. 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.
6. 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.
7. 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.
8. 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 object lessons.
1. 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 .....
WE SHALL DESTROY THE CLERGY
2. 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.
3. 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
4. THE KING OF THE JEWS WILL BE THE REAL POPE OF THE UNIVERSE,
THE PATRIARCH OF THE INTERNATIONAL CHURCH [The Antichrist??].
5. But, IN THE MEANTIME, while we are reeducating 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 ....
6. 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 ...
7. 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.
8. 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.
9. 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 DIRECTION.
10. 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.
1. 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 ....
2. 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.
3. 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.
4. 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.
GOVERNMENT BY FEAR
5. 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 pack ....
6. OVERT DEFENSE OF THE KIND ARGUES WEAKNESS IN THE ORGANIZATION
OF HIS STRENGTH.
7. 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."
8. 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 ....
9. 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.
1. 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.
2. 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.
3. 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 contempt.
4. 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
1. 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 of figures.
2. 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.
3. 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.
4. This social reform must come from above, for the time
is ripe for it - it is indispensable as a pledge of peace.
WE SHALL DESTROY CAPITAL
5. 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
6. 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.
7. 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.
8. 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
9. 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
10. 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.
11. 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.
12. 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.
13. Just strike an estimate of how many times such taxes
as these will cover the revenue of the GOYIM States.
WE CAUSE DEPRESSIONS
14. 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.
15. 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.
16. 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.
17. 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
18. 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.
19. 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.
20. 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 ....
21. 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.
22. 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.
GENTILE STATES BANKRUPT
23. 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
24. The accounts will be managed by each department (the
French administrative division), each circle.
25. 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.
26. The budgets of income and expenditure will be carried
out side by side that they may not be obscured by distance one to another.
27. 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.
28. You understand perfectly that economic arrangements of
this kind, which have been suggested to the GOYIM by us, cannot be carried
on by us.
29. 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.
TYRANNY OF USURY
30. 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.
31. 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.
32. 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.
33. 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
34. 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.
35. 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
36. 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?
37. 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.
38. 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.
39. 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.
40. 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 demigods.
41. 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.
42. 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.
1. 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.
2. 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.
3. 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. 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 exchange.
4. 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 ....
5. 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.
6. Nowadays, with external loans, these tricks cannot be
played by the GOYIM for they know that we shall demand all our moneys back.
7. 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.
8. 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 of RENTS.
9. And these last it is which patch up all the leaks in the
State treasuries of the GOYIM.
10. 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.)
11. 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.
1. 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.
2. 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.
3. 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
4. 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.
1. 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 reestablish
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 been 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.
2. 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.
3. 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.
4. 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, no splinter.
5. 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.
1. I pass now to the method of confirming the dynastic roots
of King David to the last strata of the earth.
2. 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.
3. 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 ....
4. To these persons only will be taught the practical application
of the aforenamed 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.
5. 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.
6. Only those who are unconditionally capable for firm, even
if it be to cruelty, direct rule will receive the reins of rule from our
7. 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 hands.
8. 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.
KING OF THE JEWS
9. Only the king and the three who stood sponsor for him
will know what is coming.
10. 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.
11. 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.
12. 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.
13. This terror was indispensable for us till the time comes
for both these forces separately to fall under our influence.
14. 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
