Reverend Sir: It was not my intention to doubt that the doctrine of the Illuminati had not spread in the United States. On the contrary, no one is more satisfied of this fact than I am....
George Washington to Rev. G.W. Snyder Ocotber 24, 1798
In London, there are all the factors for the most dangerous mob the world can produce. In France, the commune is stronger than ever it was and the Red terror may appear with ever turn of the whirligig of politics. In Spain and Italy, the socialists are busy while in Germany and in Russia a crisis is at hand. Let none mistake either the purpose or the devotion of these fanatics, nor their growing strength. This is a methodic, not a haphazard conspiracy. The ferment in Russia is controlled by the same heads and the same hands as the activity in Chicago. There is a cold-blooded, calculating purpose behind this revolt manipulating ever part of the world over to a common and ruinous end.
Police Captain Michael Schaack, Anarchy and Anarchists, 1889
"Over the past two years, the Russian secret police .. . . has regained most of the powers and functions of the KGB [and] resumed its old habits of arbitrary persecution and detention."
Toronto Globe and Mail, Dec. 1996

"Whatever the price of the Chinese Revolution, it has obviously succeeded not only in producing more efficient and dedicated administration, but also in fostering high morale and community of purpose.... The social experiment in China under the Chairman Mao's leadership is one of the most important and successful in human history."
David Rockefeller, 1973
During Mao's crazy Great Leap Forward, in which China's farmers were collectivized en masse, an estimated 30 million or more people starved to death. Another two million are said to have died in Mao's Cultural Revolution. Total: 35 million dead.
Eric Margolis 26 June 1997
"These [regarding the neo-Nazi culture] are the dysfunctional miscreants the left-wing media smear artists delight in labeling as "right-wing," and "patriot," with the obvious intent of transferring the malodorous taint of neo-Nazi racism to conservatives and constitutionalist who hold nothing in common with the Aryan collectivist. ...And although some of these cretins skulk behind a pseudo-Christian theology they call "Christian Identity," most are openly contemptuous of Christianity and proudly proclaim their paganism. ...These National Socialist degenerates are not "conservatives." They are politically, socially, philosophically, and morally cut from the same cloth as their Marxist socialist brethren."
William F. Jasper The New American Magazine March 31, 1997
"We shall have world government, whether or not we like it. The question is only whether world government will be achieved by consent or by conquest."
James R. Warburg (CFR)
"There does exist, and has existed for a generation, an international Anglophile network which operates, to some extent, in the way the radical Right believes the Communist act. In fact, this network... has no aversion to cooperating with the Communist, or any other groups, and frequently does so. I know of the operation of this network because I have studied it for twenty years and was permitted for two years, in the early 1960's, to examine its papers and secret records."
Prof. Carrol Quigley, Tragedy and Hope
"[David Rockefeller is the] unelected if indisputable chairman of the American establishment...Rockefeller sits at the hub of a vast network of financiers, industrialists, and politicians whose reach encircles the globe.... [W]hat some critics see as a vast international conspiracy, he considers a circumstance of life, just another day's work."
Journalist Bill Moyers
"The [Council on Foreign Relations] grew out of the Inquiry, a secretive group of well-educated bankers and lawyers who accompanied Woodrow Wilson to the Paris Peace Conference of 1919. The council saw [as] its mandate the calling of signals from the sidelines.... [T]he [elites] govern, while the lowly men of elective office...dirty their hands with politics... The international institutions conceived in 1945 the UN, the World Bank, and the International Monetary Fund were anticipated in studies done at the council."
New York Magazine, Oct. 7, 1996
"[Council on Foreign Relations displays] all the earmarks of a conspiracy a few hundred Wall Street Bankers, lawyers, foundation executives and businessmen, meeting to arrange the deals far from the prying eye of the public and their elected officials."
[Clinton's CIA nominee] Anthony Lake & Leslie Gelb Our Own Worst Enemy
"What is being arranged in Washington these days is really a gigantic experiment in internationalism. We are witnessing the creation of a supranational control of the world's necessities. The old notions of sovereignty no longer govern the facts. We have entered upon another phase of political unification, a phase greater in its methods to the formation of national states in the nineteenth century. This is the birth of the League of Nations."
Walter Lippman, April 1917
Bloomfield recognized this very problem when he stated in A World Effectively Controlled by the United Nations: "[I]f the communist dynamic were greatly abated, the West might well lose whatever incentive it had for world government."

"Many times in the course of my visit [to a US military training institute] I heard discussion of the Posse Comitatus Act, which prevents the National Guard from acting as a local police force. The implication was that turbulence within the United States might one day require repeal of the act."
Robert Kaplan The Atlantic Monthly, Sept. 1996
"[A] time may come when the military will have to go domestic..."

"It is as though our species has been devastated by a modern Black Plague.... And indeed it has, but [it has been] a plague of Power, not germs...
The common and fundamental justification of government is that it exists to protect citizens against the anarchic jungle that would otherwise threaten their lives and property... A preeminent fact about government is that some of them murder millions in cold blood. This is where absolute Power reigns."
R.J. Rummel, as reported in his book, Death by Government
