Who Runs The World? Solid Proof That A Core Group Of Wealthy Elitists Is Pulling The Strings

Michael Snyder, Contributor
Activist Post

Does a shadowy group of obscenely wealthy elitists control the world?  Do men and women with enormous amounts of money really run the world from behind the scenes?  The answer might surprise you.  Most of us tend to think of money as a convenient way to conduct transactions, but the truth is that it also represents power and control.  And today we live in a neo-feudalist system in which the super rich pull all the strings.  When I am talking about the ultra-wealthy, I am not just talking about people that have a few million dollars.

As you will see later in this article, the ultra-wealthy have enough money sitting in offshore banks to buy all of the goods and services produced in the United States during the course of an entire year and still be able to pay off the entire U.S. national debt.  That is an amount of money so large that it is almost incomprehensible.

Under this neo-feudalist system, all the rest of us are debt slaves, including our own governments.  Just look around - everyone is drowning in debt, and all of that debt is making the ultra-wealthy even wealthier.  But the ultra-wealthy don't just sit on all of that wealth.  They use some of it to dominate the affairs of the nations.  The ultra-wealthy own virtually every major bank and every major corporation on the planet.  They use a vast network of secret societies, think tanks and charitable organizations to advance their agendas and to keep their members in line.  They control how we view the world through their ownership of the media and their dominance over our education system.

They fund the campaigns of most of our politicians and they exert a tremendous amount of influence over international organizations such as the United Nations, the IMF, the World Bank and the WTO.  When you step back and take a look at the big picture, there is little doubt about who runs the world.  It is just that most people don't want to admit the truth.

The ultra-wealthy don't run down and put their money in the local bank like you and I do.  Instead, they tend to stash their assets in places where they won't be taxed such as the Cayman Islands.

According to a report that was released last summer, the global elite have up to 32 TRILLION dollars stashed in offshore banks around the globe.

U.S. GDP for 2011 was about 15 trillion dollars, and the U.S. national debt is sitting at about 16 trillion dollars, so you could add them both together and you still wouldn't hit 32 trillion dollars.

And of course that does not even count the money that is stashed in other locations that the study did not account for, and it does not count all of the wealth that the global elite have in hard assets such as real estate, precious metals, art, yachts, etc.

The global elite have really hoarded an incredible amount of wealth in these troubled times.  The following is from an article on the Huffington Post website...
Rich individuals and their families have as much as $32 trillion of hidden financial assets in offshore tax havens, representing up to $280 billion in lost income tax revenues, according to research published on Sunday.
The study estimating the extent of global private financial wealth held in offshore accounts - excluding non-financial assets such as real estate, gold, yachts and racehorses - puts the sum at between $21 and $32 trillion.
The research was carried out for pressure group Tax Justice Network, which campaigns against tax havens, by James Henry, former chief economist at consultants McKinsey & Co.
He used data from the World Bank, International Monetary Fund, United Nations and central banks.
But as I mentioned previously, the global elite just don't have a lot of money.  They also basically own just about every major bank and every major corporation on the entire planet.

According to an outstanding NewScientist article, a study of more than 40,000 transnational corporations conducted by the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich discovered that a very small core group of huge banks and giant predator corporations dominate the entire global economic system...
An analysis of the relationships between 43,000 transnational corporations has identified a relatively small group of companies, mainly banks, with disproportionate power over the global economy.
The researchers found that this core group consists of just 147 very tightly knit companies...
When the team further untangled the web of ownership, it found much of it tracked back to a "super-entity" of 147 even more tightly knit companies - all of their ownership was held by other members of the super-entity - that controlled 40 per cent of the total wealth in the network. "In effect, less than 1 per cent of the companies were able to control 40 per cent of the entire network," says Glattfelder. Most were financial institutions. The top 20 included Barclays Bank, JPMorgan Chase & Co, and The Goldman Sachs Group.
The following are the top 25 banks and corporations at the heart of this "super-entity".  You will recognize many of the names on the list...

1. Barclays plc
2. Capital Group Companies Inc
3. FMR Corporation
4. AXA
5. State Street Corporation
6. JP Morgan Chase & Co
7. Legal & General Group plc
8. Vanguard Group Inc
10. Merrill Lynch & Co Inc
11. Wellington Management Co LLP
12. Deutsche Bank AG
13. Franklin Resources Inc
14. Credit Suisse Group
15. Walton Enterprises LLC
16. Bank of New York Mellon Corp
17. Natixis
18. Goldman Sachs Group Inc
19. T Rowe Price Group Inc
20. Legg Mason Inc
21. Morgan Stanley
22. Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group Inc
23. Northern Trust Corporation
24. Société Générale
25. Bank of America Corporation

The ultra-wealthy elite often hide behind layers and layers of ownership, but the truth is that thanks to interlocking corporate relationships, the elite basically control almost every Fortune 500 corporation.

The amount of power and control that this gives them is hard to describe.

Unfortunately, this same group of people have been running things for a very long time.  For example, New York City Mayor John F. Hylan said the following during a speech all the way back in 1922...
The real menace of our Republic is the invisible government, which like a giant octopus sprawls its slimy legs over our cities, states and nation. To depart from mere generalizations, let me say that at the head of this octopus are the Rockefeller-Standard Oil interests and a small group of powerful banking houses generally referred to as the international bankers. The little coterie of powerful international bankers virtually run the United States government for their own selfish purposes.
They practically control both parties, write political platforms, make catspaws of party leaders, use the leading men of private organizations, and resort to every device to place in nomination for high public office only such candidates as will be amenable to the dictates of corrupt big business.
These international bankers and Rockefeller-Standard Oil interests control the majority of the newspapers and magazines in this country. They use the columns of these papers to club into submission or drive out of office public officials who refuse to do the bidding of the powerful corrupt cliques which compose the invisible government. It operates under cover of a self-created screen [and] seizes our executive officers, legislative bodies, schools, courts, newspapers and every agency created for the public protection.
These international bankers created the central banks of the world (including the Federal Reserve), and they use those central banks to get the governments of the world ensnared in endless cycles of debt from which there is no escape.  Government debt is a way to "legitimately" take money from all of us, transfer it to the government, and then transfer it into the pockets of the ultra-wealthy.

Today, Barack Obama and almost all members of Congress absolutely refuse to criticize the Fed, but in the past there have been some brave members of Congress that have been willing to take a stand.  For example, the following quote is from a speech that Congressman Louis T. McFadden delivered to the U.S. House of Representatives on June 10, 1932...
Mr. Chairman, we have in this country one of the most corrupt institutions the world has ever known. I refer to the Federal Reserve Board and the Federal Reserve Banks. The Federal Reserve Board, a Government board, has cheated the Government of the United States and the people of the United States out of enough money to pay the national debt. The depredations and iniquities of the Federal Reserve Board has cost this country enough money to pay the national debt several times over. This evil institution has impoverished and ruined the people of the United States, has bankrupted itself, and has practically bankrupted our Government. It has done this through the defects of the law under which it operates, through the maladministration of that law by the Federal Reserve Board, and through the corrupt practices of the moneyed vultures who control it.
Sadly, most Americans still believe that the Federal Reserve is a "federal agency", but that is simply not correct.  The following comes from
The stockholders in the 12 regional Federal Reserve Banks are the privately owned banks that fall under the Federal Reserve System. These include all national banks (chartered by the federal government) and those state-chartered banks that wish to join and meet certain requirements. About 38 percent of the nation’s more than 8,000 banks are members of the system, and thus own the Fed banks.
According to researchers that have looked into the ownership of the big Wall Street banks that dominate the Fed, the same names keep coming up over and over: the Rockefellers, the Rothschilds, the Warburgs, the Lazards, the Schiffs and the royal families of Europe.

But ultra-wealthy international bankers have not just done this kind of thing in the United States.  Their goal was to create a global financial system that they would dominate and control.  Just check out what Georgetown University history professor Carroll Quigley once wrote...
[T]he powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent private meetings and conferences. The apex of the system was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basle, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world’s central banks which were themselves private corporations.
Sadly, most Americans have never even heard of the Bank for International Settlements, but it is at the very heart of the global financial system.  The following is from Wikipedia...
As an organization of central banks, the BIS seeks to make monetary policy more predictable and transparent among its 58 member central banks. While monetary policy is determined by each sovereign nation, it is subject to central and private banking scrutiny and potentially to speculation that affects foreign exchange rates and especially the fate of export economies. Failures to keep monetary policy in line with reality and make monetary reforms in time, preferably as a simultaneous policy among all 58 member banks and also involving the International Monetary Fund, have historically led to losses in the billions as banks try to maintain a policy using open market methods that have proven to be based on unrealistic assumptions.
The ultra-wealthy have also played a major role in establishing other important international institutions such as the United Nations, the IMF, the World Bank and the WTO.  In fact, the land for the United Nations headquarters in New York City was purchased and donated by John D. Rockefeller.

The international bankers are "internationalists" and they are very proud of that fact.

The elite also dominate the education system in the United States.  Over the years, the Rockefeller Foundation and other elitist organizations have poured massive amounts of money into Ivy League schools.  Today, Ivy League schools are considered to be the standard against which all other colleges and universities in America are measured, and the last four U.S. presidents were educated at Ivy League schools.

The elite also exert a tremendous amount of influence through various secret societies (Skull and Bones, the Freemasons, etc.), through some very powerful think tanks and social clubs (the Council on Foreign Relations, the Trilateral Commission, the Bilderberg Group, the Bohemian Grove, Chatham House, etc.), and through a vast network of charities and non-governmental organizations (the Rockefeller Foundation, the Ford Foundation, the World Wildlife Fund, etc.).

But for a moment, I want to focus on the power the elite have over the media.  In a previous article, I detailed how just six monolithic corporate giants control most of what we watch, hear and read every single day.  These giant corporations own television networks, cable channels, movie studios, newspapers, magazines, publishing houses, music labels and even many of our favorite websites.
Considering the fact that the average American watches 153 hours of television a month, the influence of these six giant corporations should not be underestimated.  The following are just some of the media companies that these corporate giants own...

And of course the elite own most of our politicians as well.  The following is a quote from journalist Lewis Lapham...
"The shaping of the will of Congress and the choosing of the American president has become a privilege reserved to the country’s equestrian classes, a.k.a. the 20% of the population that holds 93% of the wealth, the happy few who run the corporations and the banks, own and operate the news and entertainment media, compose the laws and govern the universities, control the philanthropic foundations, the policy institutes, the casinos, and the sports arenas."
Have you ever wondered why things never seem to change in Washington D.C. no matter who we vote for?

Well, it is because both parties are owned by the establishment.

It would be nice to think that the American people are in control of who runs things in the U.S., but that is not how it works in the real world.

In the real world, the politician that raises more money wins more than 80 percent of the time in national races.

Our politicians are not stupid - they are going to be very good to the people that can give them the giant piles of money that they need for their campaigns.  And the people that can do that are the ultra-wealthy and the giant corporations that the ultra-wealthy control.

Are you starting to get the picture?

There is a reason why the ultra-wealthy are referred to as "the establishment".  They have set up a system that greatly benefits them and that allows them to pull the strings.
So who runs the world?

They do.  In fact, they even admit as much.

David Rockefeller wrote the following in his 2003 book entitled "Memoirs"...
"For more than a century, ideological extremists at either end of the political spectrum have seized upon well-publicized incidents such as my encounter with Castro to attack the Rockefeller family for the inordinate influence they claim we wield over American political and economic institutions. Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as 'internationalists' and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure — one world, if you will. If that is the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it."
There is so much more that could be said about all of this.  In fact, an entire library of books could be written about the power and the influence of the ultra-wealthy international bankers that run the world.

But hopefully this is enough to at least get some conversations started.

So what do you think about all of this?  Please feel free to post a comment with your thoughts below...

I think this can be filed under 'no shit'. Merely repeating the same information ad nauseum won't create change. There is no lack of information on all of this, and that has been true for many decades.

Humans are slaves. They veritably worship (and vote FOR) the Nazis who enslave and poison them. Secretly, most humans' values are aligned with these elites - they wish they could be like them, and they treat other people the same way. Hard to pity them. Often in life you get just what you create.

Took the red pill years ago when I started "following the money" regarding elections, scientific research, markets etc. The real point is what can you do about it? People are too drugged , spoiled by convenience, distracted by sports, ignorant,or poor to be independent of these corporations. Unless everyone wakes up at once, and soon we are screwed. It may already be too late with NDAA and the president asking the military to be willing to fire on Americans. The veterans and sheriffs are our last line of defense. That and preserving the 2nd amendment.Read a little history of what happens with gun registration & confiscation.

the real question is what is the end game that they want.
Control is that it? Think about that. What do they want. WWIII ok then after that what?

we can all just sit back and watch as Drones are flying around, chem-trails are sprayed, Cameras from drones monitor everything we do, and we are put on a smart-grid with smart-meters which are completely unhealthy to everything.

are they themselves controlled by evil. They must be, no one acts like they do repeatedly through history.

The Canadian Government gave 578 BILLION dollars (over half a TRILLION dollars) to corporations in welfare payments to stimulate the economy and create jobs. They decided instead to hang on to it and increase their Executive compensation and take it offshore. I can only imagine how much has been taken from the US Treasury.

I'll tell you what their end game is....depopulation.

"They veritably worship (and vote FOR) the Nazis who enslave and poison them."

Not Nazi's, Zionists. But they do share many traits in common so it can be hard to distinguish between them.

To quote a 1935 Jewish media article I've posted a few times around here already:

"But whether Zionists want it or not they can not get away from the fact that they share with the Nazi's the underlying principles of National Socialism.

The Zionist theory fully accepts and supports the Nazi claim of the "alienism" of the Jews in Germany and in other countries of their birth.

Some Zionists frequently speak of Hitler as of a "Messenger of God" sent to further the work of Zionism.


It was a Zionist scheme that was recently perfected for the mass emigration of all Jews from Germany within twenty-five years."

~ "Zionism in Naziland" by William Zukerman, the Canadian Jewish Chronicle for August 9, 1935

It helps to have the facts organized and put forth as this post has done. That way we can research each further, tease out connections, spread the information, form think tanks around issues, formulate plans to attack and dismantle the inequalities, whether openly and within their rules or through all out relentless subversion. I will refer back to this post repeatedly to look into the separate issues, to analyse by myself and with others. I will share this repeatedly with those who want to do the same and to those who want to know more to join the fight. Thanks for this consolidation of information, Snyder

The point that rich elite pigs run things while the two party system of D vs. R keeps us all divided cannot be made too often or too loudly.

Even as people wake up and reject the vile two party con game, the truth movement (call it whatever you want) is waiting for them with traps and more divide and conquer.
Leaving the big R vs D game, good for you, step right this way.......tea party or occupy?
The divide and rule swine are always working their game, we should always be aware of that and make sure we don't get caught up in their game.

Excellent summary of our situation.

"Our" government has been systematically detached from pretense of representation of citizens and their nation's interests. Partytown, DC. Both parties are in competition to see who can deliver the most from us to their sponsors. And Partytown because while their economy roars the rest of the country sinks. They see not, care not, and are incapable of doing anything that will result in improvement for our lot.

If the fiscal cliff wasn't disgusting enough, watch the current pandering to the hispanic vote. I read a comment in a major paper from a black woman who was absolutely pissed at Obama for ignoring how immigration has hurt the native-born working class... no threats or obscenities, just someone who was pissed off, and the paper censored the comment.

Not only do we not have a senator let alone a senate, a newspaper, television station or a lobbyist, we are so censored by political correctness people can't speak their truth in the comment section of newspapers.

Forgot to say you've written an excellent piece with this.

I was watched PBS's story on Ford, and they went on about his "anti-Semitism." He used the word "internationalists" and thats one of the hallmarks of the dreaded anti-S, who know if you think there's a plot by international bankers you're an anti.

I'm not sure how anyone could miss the plot at this point, but I always pay attention to language as a frame, and to dodge the ol' anti-S charge, you could substitute the word anti-nationalists for internationalists. Internationalist sounds sophisticated, but it requires the destruction of nations. They've enlisted plenty of people of all political persuasions to go along with this, but if you stop and think about it, where will we be when our nation is gone? It's bad now, doesn't mean it can't get worse. I don't look forward to "neo-fuedalism" (great term for it) under bankers' rule.

correction: these people don't have money. they are money. big difference. money is a fabrication of humanity. it's purpose is to conduct commerce, but a few own and control both money and commerce. these people are money. it's not something they posses, but rather something they create to control us. they can create as much or as little money as necessary to control us ... slave.

We all know the truth to some degree but the majority of people are defeated by complacency while the minority (with the exception of a few) dont really know what to do about it. We are trapped in a perpetual loop spiralling down to the complete and utter destruction of our own individualism with no hope of salvation. With every individual who steps forth in an attempt to wake us up 'the establishment' shoot them down just as quickly through the many hired guns (systems) they control so well. Personally I cant see a way out of this and until I do all I can do is live my life by there rules as well as I am able to and educate my seeds to see truth where ever it is hidden.

It's important to look beyond just blaming 'the elites'. Such predators can only proper so long as they reflect the will of the people. They would never exist in an honest, compassionate culture, among honest, compassionate people.

The elites reflect their prisoners' alter egos. So while you're looking for solutions, remember that the problem is in everyone's values. Your neighbors and YOU, not just the 'big names'.

When people genuinely choose to share fairly, globally, the world's problems will end. But no one wants to have less of anything in that deal. It's not that hard to make friends - you give a little, help a little. Same for nations. There is simply no will - the true will of humanity is us vs them, to be cruel, to be inhuman. Solve that and the elites will fade from memory like a bad dream, and people will wonder why they ever put up with such abuse.

Fail to solve that, and none of the attempts at a solution to these 'elites' will work.

Think about it. This "magic power" of money is based on fiat currency, paper that has no value in itself until it becomes a commodity or real estate. But it has no value to say $1.00 or $10.00; a millionaire, or a trillionaire; it is only we who ascribe the value to the paper instruments they use to prove to us they own an un-ownable dust speck in space. You give their money value with your belief. The wars in the oil region are to maintain the illusion of dollar value in oil when in fact we are even past the point of being able to afford the paper to print the cash. Not only is money fiat money, but the huge debts recently ratcheted up are electrons, not even paper, so all the Wall Street Trading, is churning the electrons back and forth ascribing greater and greater belief in the system called Dollar Hegemony.

You surely must be living in a dream world, sound like a commie idealist, by the way that was (communism) their handywork as well.
The control of this network is so complete most people can't even imagine.
Fiarly good article but fail to mention the names of those in control.
Anybody walking around with open eyes should have a pretty good idea.
Look up the names and you will see they all belong to the chosen tribe, with the family of the red shield on top.
Nothing short of an almost world wide revolt would get rid of them.

Unfortunately the same disease that drives their greed and gluttony turns to wanting power. When any material thing on earth is at your finger tips without even batting an eye life becomes boring so power becomes their next elixir that makes them feel alive. Just like with money they can't get enough and eventually they want to start playing God. They see themselves as such and think they know best, when and if your ever born and when you should die. Your productivity is gone, there is nothing more to be harvested for them from you,, then just die.
It may sound wrong to a moral person but not when you think your God and your thoughts are the laws of humanity. Like a pedophile or a serial killer they can't be cured or persuaded to change their ways, it's why throughout history the common people have finally rose up and administered the only solution that has ever worked with them, as barbaric as it may appear to be.

When I read articles like this and being an African living in Africa, I can't stop to wonder the relationship between this group in relation to the abject poverty, misery, oppression, crisis, genocides and you name it in Africa. Maybe Africans have been wrongly throwing blames on purported dictators whereas these supposed dictators are just the stage boys of the invisible group. Am I correct? If so, then, the rest of the world population should stop under-looking Africans because they are suffering what if not of their making. The right fingers should be pointed to the right directions to those who are responsible for the life-state of Africa(ns).

Its a terrible experiences over here as majority of the people lives in squalor, starvation, deprivation of every dignified life and the worst is that, these same people are sure, orchestrating an elaborate scam where westerners are told to contribute money towards helping Africans yet, they collects all these contributions to further help themselves.

People of the world, here is my advice, the next time you feel like helping an African, I will advocate that, you do a PERSON-TO-PERSON direct help. Don't channel your hard earn money through some so called "charity organization" which all are still the various mechanism of these very group used still to extort even more money out of your pocket. You see, they use us in all forms. Pit each one another and stay in the middles to extract every flow of resources from all ends. Forget all the scrap about World Food Program and all the other proxies supposed crisis organizations. They are all SCAMS. Channel your many to individuals directly. A person to person network is what we can use to help each other. for any more info: reach me at : rep237(att)gmail(dot)com

The Information Age.

Power & control comes from knowledge, keep reading, researching, learning, and like Yoda says, pass on what you know, educate your F&F. An educated population is an understanding & tolerant population. Dumb chumps are easily manipulated.

The Magic Trick - The Misdirect.

Avoid misdirects like the "media machine" which pushes sex & inadequacy. This leads to addiction - drugs, caffeine, alcohol, sugar, consumerism, gambling. Try to cut adverts out of your life completely.

The most dangerous of all smoke and mirror misdirects is religion, tax free cash cows which pit man against woman, brother against brother. It's the old "switcheroo" while we're fighting amongst ourselves, we're distracted from the truth and they're dipping their hands into our pockets helping themselves to our hard earned!

Making Little Soldiers.

It is every adults' moral duty to protect our children. They are innocent, vulnerable & need us, trust us.
Indoctrination & Segregation of infants is immoral and a violation of their trust in us. This is how they begin their thought control, they brainwash us, teach us to hate ourselves, our species & our planet and to love the almighty "dollar". (Basic human rights - kids should have the right NOT to be indoctrinated.)

The culture of wealth.

They fool us into thinking that wealth is winning, that greed is success. Survival of our species is the only measure of success and we're heading for extinction. Global warming, scarcity of finite resources. Check out phosphorus (NPK soil balance) as just one example.

Ego & Ownership.

Humankind "owns" nothing but our own bodies & minds. We are born with nothing & leave with nothing. We don't own our parents, our partners nor our children. Humankind is nature, not above, we are a recent addition to the life which has been surviving here for thousands of millions of years. Humankind cannot "own" a planet, we can only live on one and what is stopping us sharing it? You'd think it madness if "Greedy-Corp" asked you to pay for air, so why are we paying for water?


The ruling class' wealth is more or less just zeros and ones in cyberspace. Their power is meaningless if we become non-consumers and learn to support ourselves as much as possible. When you wake on a morning, ask yourself what you NEED to be happy & survive, and discard those things you may only WANT, you'll find Humankind needs very little - Food, water, shelter, power, sanitation, transport, communication & medicine, and you'll find working 40hrs a week probably isn't on the list. Capitalism today has become immoral greed, and as intelligent addiction free humans, what's wrong with considering need before greed?

Escape the Stressful grind.

Try to grow your own food, help community gardens, find your own energy (solar panels etc) water capture, closed-loop recycling, insulate, cycle more, reduce carbon footprint, reduce your monthly bills, down-size even, spend your valuable time on the important things - the sacred life around us, our family, friends, and neighbours. Humankind is good people. Our lives are quite short, we get 3 or 4 score & 10, if we're miserable and just waiting for death, what's the point?

Iran is the Media/Persia empire.

Isaiah 13:17 Behold, I will stir up the Medes against them, which shall not regard silver; as for gold, they shall not delight in it.

Whatever you think about Iran, they cannot be bought. This is why the bankers want to take them down. They won't play ball.

Do not fret because of evildoers, Nor be envious of the workers of iniquity. For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, And wither as the green herb.

They trust in their wealth and boast of great riches. Yet they cannot redeem themselves from death by paying a ransom to God. Redemption does not come so easily, for no one can ever pay enough to live forever and never see the grave.

Those who are wise must finally die, just like the foolish and senseless, leaving all their wealth behind. The grave is their eternal home, where they will stay forever. They may name their estates after themselves, but their fame will not last. They will die, just like animals. This is the fate of fools, though they are remembered as being wise. Like sheep, they are led to the grave, where death will be their shepherd. Their bodies will rot in the grave, far from their grand estates.

So don’t be dismayed when the wicked grow rich and their homes become ever more splendid. For when they die, they take nothing with them. Their wealth will not follow them into the grave. In this life they consider themselves fortunate and are applauded for their success. But they will die like all before them and never again see the light of day.

People who boast of their wealth don’t understand; they will die, just like animals.

WE are the elite!

Economically the National Socialist programs of the 1930's could do well at eliminating the "elites" of today as well.

As prominent American historian Professor John A. Garraty put it both Hitler's personal views and the goals of National Socialism "inclined the regime to favor the ordinary German over any elite group. Workers … had an honored place in the system... It is beyond argument that the Nazis encouraged working-class social and economic mobility."(1)

To encourage acquisition of new skills, the government greatly expanded vocational training programs, and offered generous incentives for further advancement of efficient workers.(2)

In a 1934 interview with American journalist Louis Lochner Hitler stated: "In my opinion, the Americans are right in not wanting to make everyone the same but rather in upholding the principle of the ladder. However, every single person must be granted the opportunity to climb up the ladder."(3)

In 1933 there were 6 million unemployed Germans and the country was in shambles.

By 1936 there were only 1 million unemployed thanks to National Socialist policies.

By late 1939 unemployment in Germany had been completely ERADICATED, leading to a shortage of labor instead(filled partially when the war started by forced labor of "enemies of the State").

Salaries and worker benefits increased steadily throughout the 1930's, and actually continued climbing until 1943. By 1943 the average weekly earnings of German workers had increased 41% over 1933.(4)

Unfortunately as author, former U.S Ambassador, economic adviser to numerous presidents and Harvard economics professor John Kenneth Galbraith explained so well: "The elimination of unemployment in Germany during the Great Depression without inflation -- and with initial reliance on essential civilian activities -- was a signal accomplishment. It has rarely been praised and not much remarked. The notion that Hitler could do no good extends to his economics as it does, more plausibly, to all else."

Don't let the propaganda against National Socialism make you ignore some of the most successful economic policies in modern human history.

The Nazi's and Hitler did know how to do some good things, they were the National Socialist German WORKERS Party for a reason.

As Hitler stated in his radio address to the German nation 2 days after assuming the Chancellorship:

"The Marxist parties and their allies have had 14 years to show what they can do. The result is a heap of ruins. Now, people of Germany, give us four years and then pass judgment upon us!"

After 6 years Germany was an economic powerhouse with no unemployment and a labor shortage.

Just like the modern U.S "Nazi's".... eh? :rolleyes:

Roosevelt and his Marxist policies were a fart in the philosophical wind compared to the Nazi's successful strategies for combating economic distress caused by wealthy elitists with their own agendas.

Well-said Johnny. Now you see why we can't have that sort of thing here. "Combating economic distress caused by wealthy elitists", -- no we shall not have that.

Now then Johnny be a good boy and run along. Surely you have something better to do, like watch the Super Bowl. You know we are spending lots of money to keep you entertained.

@ Lowenstein - "Now then Johnny be a good boy and run along. Surely you have something better to do, like watch the Super Bowl. You know we are spending lots of money to keep you entertained."

Honestly, although they did work together for a while and share many ideological characteristics the primary difference between National Socialism and Zionist globalism is that the Nazi's sought to build up strong nations and peoples, whereas the Zionists seek to destroy strong nations and peoples.

Strong nations are an obstacle for supra-nationalism, that is why the globalist bankers have been seeking to divide and "Balkanize" such nations all over the world(Libya, Syria, Iran, etc.).

I do believe the movement calling for U.S states to secede from the Federal Union is a "psy-op" or patsy group for the globalists, the U.S.A as the strongest nation on the planet is the biggest obstacle to supra-nationalism.

Broken down and ravaged by "civil war" and such the U.S.A will not be able to resist the globalists push for supra-nationalism.

They have purposefully infiltrated and used the U.S.A as their primary weapon/tool in their agenda and at the same time caused all this economic, social and political damage to incite the people of western nations to destroy their own countries to pave the way for the supranational globalist Marxist state.

I have been warning people for a few years to be careful that in their pursuit of "saving" America and the western world in general from it's own apparent self-destruction that they don't end up destroying it themselves and handing victory to their opponents.

Sadly at this moment that to me looks to be the most likely outcome of this activist movement right now, if global war doesn't initiate first and render it a moot point anyways.

Thanks Michael. Tell me something I don't already know?

Our whole society's being propped up by nothing. It's only a matter of time before it collapses.

It is a good run down of info for the uninformed though. Good job.

I always have to go back to what George Carlin said: "It's called the American Dream because you have to be asleep to believe it."

Merlin Wizard said...

My first observation is simply, The reality that there is a "red pill vs. blue pill choice" means that someone else is in control. It is sort of a "no sh!t" statement, I know, but you have to begin somewhere. Ever since man began grouping into communities, there has been a leader. What that brings with it is, oh so very human: Jealousy. Those who want to be leader but cannot, for whatever reason. The truly amazing side effect of "communities" is the sheer number of people willing to be "lead".

It was really at the moment we stopped hunting and gathering independently that this problem began and there is little hope we can actually escape " leadership", in it's entirety, ever.

Those who "lead us", whether elected/selected or surreptitiously installed, are there because they did something better or more devious than their competitor. Take the current monster we installed as our president: who, in their right mind, would have predicted that he would have won a second term given his fecklessness during the first? Who, with a clear conscience and a straight face would have stated that his "followers" would support him the second time around with as much enthusiasm as the first time- given they were the most hard-hit by his ineptitude? To watch his followers on the news, you would have thought you were watching an interview at a psych ward... Well, it all happened.

Is the question, "who do we blame"? Is it the media, the people who voted for him, the cabal behind the media, the conspiracy of "those in real power" or do we blame those who didn't do enough? Or worse, do we blame those who did nothing? -- "Nope" to all of them - that's the wrong question.

The question is simply, "How do we take back enough control so that we can tolerate 'being lead' by people we didn't choose?" We'll never take it all back- short of a meteor strike that sends us all back to caveman days, but we can take back enough to make living in "the matrix" tolerable since its a creation of our own humanity.

Merlin Wizard said...

Oh, I also missed the "solid proof" that the article advertises. "Solid proof" would be emails or letters from any of the 'cabal' collaborating, recordings of the secret meetings, investment records showing divestiture prior to collapse or investment prior to a windfall. A list of names that has been floated for decades, a list of corporate ownership, two wiki page links and a quote from Rockefeller do not a "solid proof" make.

I counter that the uber-riche of the world do collaborate to further their efforts, when it suits them; however, the rule of the jungle insists that they struggle against one another until they too have a leader. That leader, I conclude, is the most powerful and/or most devious amongst them, but it hardly means he's the "one" with the "master plan". Unlike so many, here, who see conspiracy in every event, I am a scientist who lives a purely logical life. Humans are easy to predict, once you understand our motives, and even easier to control- once you understand our motivations. Rich or poor, our behavior is the same and the "outliers" are either snipped by poverty/insanity/incarceration or propelled to leadership- the rest are "followers".

@ Johnny & his nationalist propaganda:

I certainly hope that was sarcasm. Otherwise, I would remind you that the (illgotten) gains of the Germans from 1933-1939 came at a very heavy cost. And for someone to say that economic recovery occurred in the absence of inflation is purely absurd. Inflation had ravaged the country prior to 1933, and their subsequent improvement in the absence of any MORE inflation is completely underwhelming. you also failed to note (conveniently) that people were fleeing Germany in droves and by the time Hitler took over, employment was already increasing in order to fill all of the vacancies. Beyond that, massive wealth grabs took place - and not just from the elite, "undesirables" we're being deported (or worse), "work camps" were springing up everywhere and the average income for everyone began to decrease; except the destitute- they were shipped to the work camps. All wealth in the country was being consolidated with the government - SO IT COULD BUILD A WAR MACHINE!

All figures from 1933-1943 are completely skewed, unverified and most-likely fake if they show any per capita improvement. Just look at the source of those numbers: a government trying to convince the world that they are rebuilding their country - not amassing an army for world domination.

Nothing "usable" came from the socialists; ever. Their philosophy flies in the face of nature, it has never been successful and never will.

@ Merlin Wizard - all of your bogus claims are propaganda that cite back to war-time mass-media propaganda mouthpieces saying something, or some known or anonymous government officials or claimed(often contradictory) "eye-witnesses" as sources.

The sources I cite all base their views on the actual documented facts, of which there is vast documentation in the archives of Germany, Russia, U.S.A, Britain, Australia, Canada, Italy, Poland, etc.

Documented facts vs. "he said that she said that so-and-so said that the Germans... and government sources confirm".

In early 1945 hundreds of "eye-witnesses" claimed the Germans exterminated Jews with gas-chambers at over a dozen German concentration camps like Dachau.

By the time of the IMT/Nuremberg Trials all claims of gas-chambers and mass-murder on German soil had disappeared as the Americans liberated the camps to discover the falsity of the claims.

As the sign ironically states at Dachau the "gas chamber" there was never used. The only physically evidenced, semi-provable "gas chamber" at any German camp was "never used" by the Allies own admission.

Only the claims from the Soviets about the Eastern camps in Poland inaccessible to any independent investigators behind the "Iron Curtain" maintained the existence of gas-chamber mass-exterminations(and electrocution chambers, steam chambers, pedal-powered brain-bashing machines, etc.).

Of course the Soviets would never lie... their blaming of the Katyn Forest Massacre on the Germans at Nuremberg when it was carried out by Soviet NKVD was just an accident... lost in translation, eh?

And the witnesses the Soviet's brought forward to testify about seeing the Germans doing the NKVD's dirty work at Katyn had just been dehydrated those days and hallucinating, or were just confused, eh?

And their use of the most detailed forensic report on a mass-grave excavation in modern history to "convict" the Nazi's was just an error - they meant to specify that the report was assembled by the Nazi's documenting the Soviet's crimes at Katyn.

90% of the propaganda people like you believe in is total BS made up by the Soviets and supported by the Allies for promoting their own purposes.

Also, the claims of National Socialism's economic successes come primarily from John Kenneth Galbraith who served as U.S Ambassador to India for several years, was adviser to multiple U.S Presidents and was an economics professor at the world renowned Harvard University.

Now, should I rely on the claims of a highly respected economist and diplomat with direct connections to the halls of power in both the U.S and numerous world governments...backed up by a number of respected historians and the documentation they cite?

Or rely on the unsourced propaganda claims and personal opinions of "Merlin Wizard" on the comments section of Activist Post?

Jeez, tough call on that one... [/sarcasm]


Merlin Wizard said...

More joking, I see. If you are really offering it up as a choice, then of course you should believe me- the guy reporting the story as written by everyone in the world that was actually there. Otherwise, you would be choosing to adopt the ridiculous rhetoric of a Canadian, dyed-in-the-wool socialist whose Keynesian economic beliefs are ridiculed the world over. Maybe you should actually research his history, not just visit Wikipedia; though, even Wikipedia does point out many of his extreme leftist ties and views. As for Harvard, well, I'm unimpressed: I have sheepskins from Princeton and MIT, my wife from Yale, my daughter from CalTech and Berkley... They are just schools my friend- attendance at them just means somebody paid for you to be there.

So, what I am saying is simple: I believe what my grandfather, my great aunt, and the vast majority of my wife's family report about the pre-WWII Germany they lived in. It just so happens that it matches very closely with what HISTORY reports as well. Life for them as natural born citizens, living a middle class life, in Hamburg, became a miserable existence in 1933 and did not improve until Hitler's death. "On that day, every citizen breathed a sigh of relief- the misery was almost over." -- My grandfather

And your nonsense about gas chambers is just revisionist history. My wife's family, the one's who survived, would take exception to your Dachau humor. Again- revisionist history. You are letting your anti-semitism show "Johnny" and your revisionist history is premature... There are still people alive today who witnessed the gas chambers operation... In fact, I have two grand parents in-law with Auschewitz & Buchenvald (sp?) tattoos on their arms. They were " undesirables" not Jews, so they didn't get gassed, they just had to clean up after... Nice try- no dice.

Merlin Wizard said...

And finally, in conclusion before I move on to another topic (this one has run its course), I would offer that much of the conventional "conspiracy" so many see is a haphazard mix of coincidence and collusion/collaboration only when similar interested party's motives intersect. Sometimes sh!t just happens and when it does, there seems to always be someone in a position to benefit from it. Being in the right place at the right time does not a conspiracy make.

Anonymous said...

Haha, I quote revisionists who have spent decades criss-crossing the globe and pouring through massive document archives from the Allies and Axis powers which they cite to get to the truth, and you the all knowing and powerful "Merlin" call this bs.

But "my grandmother said they were evil"... is legit evidence... rofl, you are quite funny Merlin.

Everyone breathed a sigh of relief then because they new the massive war was soon to end, regardless of what their politics was. Certainly the end of Allied war-crime civilian city bombing against Germany would be a relief to have come to an end, no?

You really are thoroughly brainwashed, eh?
