So why do I regard our wise, lordly rulers with disdain and distrust that borders on paranoia? Well....I'd have to say it's mostly because I read a lot of history. Actual history, not the bowlderized propaganda that passes for "official" history. If you, too, would like a peek behind the tatty theater curtains that we're told is reality, I can recommend you some books.
For starters, I just finished reading "The Shadows of Power - The Council on Foreign Relations And the American Decline" by James Perloff (Western Islands publishing, ISBN 978-0-88279-134-0).
Fascinating stuff. I had not realized the extent that the Bolshevik revolution in Russia had been financed by Wall Street. Forexample, Jacob Schiff, head of Kuhn, Loeb and Co, sank $22,000,000.00 1910-era dollars (that's a LOT more money in today's devalued dollars, but I'm too lazy to calculate it) into the Bolsheviks. Mao's takeover of China would also have been impossible without American help.
But why? Why would international bankers, arch-capitalists, bankroll brutal communist dictatorships?
The key word is "dictatorship", it turns out. The bankers want monopoly, the elimination of competition. So if a government has total control over the people, and they have their hands down the pants of that government, all is well in their view. They don't care if dictatorship arrived via the Left or the Right - Nazis and Commies serve their ends equally well - as long as the tinpot dictators do what they're told by the High Cabal.
There's much more, but I don't have all day to type this. See for yourself.
The facts described in the abovementioned book synch up pretty well with
"The Creature from Jekyll Island - A Second Look at the Federal Reserve" by G. Edward Griffin (American Opinion Publishing Inc, ISBN 0-912986-16-6) and
"JFK: The CIA, Vietnam, and the plot to assassinate John F. Kennedy" by Fletcher Prouty (Skyhorse Publishing, ISBN 978-1-61608-291-8)
So....would you like your comforting illusions about how America and the world works to be rudely shattered, leaving you on a rickety rollercoaster of outrage, fear, anger and depression, just like Karno? Then dive into these fact-packed tomes!
