Fascist Israeli Prime Minister
Knesset, Tel Aviv, October 3, 2001

— Simon Wolf
Jewish-American lobbyist, 1888
The Influence of the Jews on the Progress of the World

Washington DC, 1888; pp. 37-39

Note: The above quote applies much more to America now, than to Europe.

— Israel Shamir
Russian-Israeli journalist

Note: Israel Shamir is a decent, conscientious man.
His statement is meant not as an ethnocentric boast,
but as a wake-up call.

“The silence in [mainstream] America concerning Jews is simply deafening, isn’t it? The old adage has it that, when visiting a foreign country, to ascertain who really runs things, one need determine only who is spoken about in whispers, if at all.”

— Edgar J. Steele
journalist, lawyer

“At any given moment, there is a sort of all pervading orthodoxy, a general tacit agreement not to discuss large and uncomfortable facts.”

— George Orwell
author of the book 1984

“The few who understand the system, will either be so interested in its profits, or so dependent on its favors that there will be no opposition from that class, while on the other hand, the great body of people, mentally incapable of comprehending the tremendous advantages...will bear its burden without complaint, and perhaps without suspecting that the system is inimical to their best interests.”

— Rothschild Brothers of London

— Ezra Pound
Expatriate American poet, writer
speaking of the destructive effects of parasitical banking, or usury,
on national and international politics

“I hope we shall crush in its birth the aristocracy of our moneyed corporations, which dare already to challenge our government to a trial of strength and bid defiance to the laws of our country.”

— Thomas Jefferson

“The real truth of the matter is, as you and I know, that a financial element in the large centers has owned the government of the U.S. since the days of Andrew Jackson.”

— President Franklin D. Roosevelt
in a letter written to Colonel House
November 21, l933

“Can it be believed that the democracy which overthrew the feudal system and vanquished kings will retreat before tradesmen and capitalists?”

— Alexis de Tocqueville

“But we’re not a democracy. It’s a terrible misunderstanding and a slander to the idea of democracy to call us that. In reality, we’re a plutocracy: a government by the wealthy.”

— Ramsey Clark
former U.S. Attorney General
interview in The Sun magazine, August 2001
“Neighborhood Bully — Ramsey Clark on American Militarism”

“American capitalism represents more than just an economic system; it is an entire cultural and social order, a plutocracy — that is, a system of rule by and for the rich — for the most part.

“Most universities and colleges, publishing houses, mass circulation magazines, newspapers, television and radio stations, professional sports teams, foundations, churches, private museums, charity organizations, and hospitals are organized as corporations, ruled by boards of trustees (or directors or regents) composed overwhelmingly of affluent businesspeople. These boards exercise final judgement over all institutional matters.”

— Michael Parenti
Democracy for the Few
Chapter 3: The Plutocratic Culture

“A great industrial Nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the Nation and all our activities are in the hands of a few men.

“We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated Governments in the world — no longer a Government of free opinion, no longer a Government by conviction and vote of the majority, but a Government by the opinion and duress of small groups of dominant men.”

— Woodrow Wilson
U.S. President during capitalist World War I

“...for the first time in its history, Western Civilization is in danger of being destroyed internally by a corrupt, criminal ruling cabal which is centered around the Rockefeller interests, which include elements from the Morgan, Brown, Rothschild, Du Pont, Harriman, Kuhn-Loeb, and other groupings as well. This junta took control of the political, financial, and cultural life of America in the first two decades of the twentieth century.

“The Bush family, beginning with Prescott Bush, have served as satraps of the Rockefeller, Brown, and Harriman interests. President Bush is simply a puppet of this powerful cabal, and their schemes will be carried out by whatever next president comes to power unless we the people can deflect them from this insane, murderous plot for global dominance.”

— Dr. Norman Livergood
“The World Dominance Plot”

“The world is governed by very different personages from what is imagined by those who are not behind the scenes.”

— Benjamin Disraeli
First Jewish Prime Minister of England, 1868
in his 1844 novel Coningsby

“Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people. To destroy this invisible government, to befoul the unholy alliance between corrupt business and corrupt politics is the first task of the statesmanship of today.”

— President Theodore Roosevelt

“A world of unseen dictatorship is conceivable, still using the forms of democratic government.”

— Kenneth Boulding
University of Michigan
quoted in The Hidden Persuaders

“I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country. As a result of the war, corporations have been enthroned and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavour to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until all wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed.”

— Abraham Lincoln

“An honest politician is one who, when he’s bought, stays bought.”

— Simon Cameron
19th Century Pennsylvania Republican political boss

“Nowhere do ‘politicians’ form a more separate, powerful section of the nation than in North America. There, each of the two great parties which alternately succeed each other in power is itself in turn controlled by people who make a business of politics, who speculate on seats in the legislative assemblies of the Union as well as of the separate states, or who make a living by carrying on agitation for their party and on its victory are rewarded with positions.

“It is well known that the Americans have been striving for thirty years to shake off this yoke, which has become intolerable, and that in spite of all they can do they continue to sink ever deeper in this swamp of corruption. It is precisely in America that we see best how there takes place this process of the state power making itself independent in relation to society, whose mere instrument it was originally intended to be.

“Here there exists no dynasty, no nobility, no standing army, beyond the few men keeping watch on the Indians, no bureaucracy with permanent posts or the right to pensions. And nevertheless we find here two great gangs of political speculators, who alternately take possession of the state power and exploit it by the most corrupt means and for the most corrupt end — and the nation is powerless against these two great cartels of politicians, who are ostensibly its servants, but in reality exploit and plunder it.”

— Frederick Engels
c. 1871
speaking of Democrats and Republicans

“The whole fabric of society will go to wrack if we really lay hands of reform on our rotten institutions. ... From top to bottom the whole system is a fraud, all of us know it, laborers and capitalists alike, and all of us are consenting parties to it.”

— Henry Adams
American politician

quoted by Gore Vidal in
The Decline and Fall of the American Empire

“We have never had a popular government... nor are we in any danger now. Our only political party has two right wings, one called Republican, the other Democratic. But Henry Adams figured all that out back in the 1890s. ‘We have a single system,’ he wrote, and ‘in that system the only question is the price at which the proletariat is to be bought and sold, the bread and circuses.’”

— Gore Vidal
The Decline and Fall of the American Empire

“Or, as Brooks Adams [Henry Adams’ brother] put it, the sole problem of our ruling class is whether to coerce or to bribe the powerless majority.”

— Gore Vidal
The Decline and Fall of the American Empire

“American capitalism is predatory, and American politics are corrupt.”

— Upton Sinclair
famous American writer
in a letter to John Reed
October 22, 1918

“The business of America is business.”

— Calvin Coolidge
U.S. President, 1923-29

“We stand for the maintenance of private property... We shall protect free enterprise as the most expedient, or rather the sole possible economic order.”

— Adolf Hitler
supported by Prescott Bush,
grandfather of George W. Bush

true American flag - swastika and stripes - symbol of American state terrorism “A clique of U.S. industrialists is hell-bent to bring a fascist state to supplant our democratic government and is working closely with the fascist regime in Germany and Italy. I have had plenty of opportunity in my post in Berlin to witness how close some of our American ruling families are to the Nazi regime. They extended aid to help Fascism occupy the seat of power, and they are helping to keep it there.”

— William E. Dodd
U.S. Ambassador to Germany

“I came to America because of the great, great freedom which I heard existed in this country. I made a mistake in selecting America as a land of freedom, a mistake I cannot repair in the balance of my lifetime.”

— Albert Einstein

“The liberty of a democracy is not safe if the people tolerate the growth of private power to the point where it becomes stronger than the democratic state itself. That in its essence is fascism — ownership of government by an individual, by a group or any controlling private power.”

— President Franklin D. Roosevelt
on the threat to democracy by corporate power

“We can have a democratic society or we can have the concentration of great wealth in the hands of the few. We cannot have both.”

— Louis Brandeis
Supreme Court Justice from 1916-1939

“In many respects, we now live in a society that is only formally democratic, as the great mass of citizens have minimal say on the major public issues of the day, and such issues are scarcely debated at all in any meaningful sense in the electoral arena.

“In our society, corporations and the wealthy enjoy a power every bit as immense as that assumed to have been enjoyed by the lords and royalty of feudal times.”

— Robert W. McChesney
author of Rich Media, Poor Democracy
Corporate Media and the Threat to Democracy

“Every four years the naive half who vote are encouraged to believe that if we can elect a really nice man or woman President everything will be all right. But it won’t be.

“Any individual who is able to raise $25 million to be considered presidential is not going to be much use to the people at large. He will represent oil, or aerospace, or banking, or whatever moneyed entities are paying for him. Certainly he will never represent the people of the country, and they know it. Hence the sense of despair throughout the land as incomes fall, businesses fail and there is no redress.”

— Gore Vidal
The Decline and Fall of the American Empire

“Many people say it is insane to resist the system, but actually, it is insane not to.”

— Mumia Abu-Jamal
political prisoner in America

“If a baseball player slides into home plate and, right before the umpire rules if he is safe or out, the player says to the umpire — ‘Here is $1,000.’ What would we call that? We would call that a bribe. If a lawyer was arguing a case before a judge and said, ‘Your honor before you decide on the guilt or innocence of my client, here is $1,000.’ What would we call that? We would call that a bribe.

“But if an industry lobbyist walks into the office of a key legislator and hands her or him a check for $1,000, we call that a campaign contribution. We should call it a bribe.”

— Janice Fine
Dollars and Sense magazine

“...free enterprise, [is] a term that refers, in practice, to a system of public subsidy and private profit, with massive government intervention in the economy to maintain a welfare state for the rich.”

— Noam Chomsky
What Uncle Sam Really Wants

“The corporations of America today effectively oversee the Congress, and the regulatory agencies and indeed the presidency itself.”

— E. L. Doctorow

“The U.S. President has been largely refashioned as a high-level trade representative for the transnationals.”

The Nation

“Corporations have taken over the government and turned it against its own people.”

— Ralph Nader
consumer advocate

“There is no war on crime. There is no war on drugs, no war on terrorism. There is only the ongoing effort by the federal government to collect as much information on as many people as possible.”

— Jim Redden
author of
Snitch Culture: How Citizens Are Turned Into the Eyes and Ears of the State

“Americans cannot teach democracy to the world until they restore their own.”

— William Greider
journalist and author

“... the United States has given frequent and enthusiastic support to the overthrow of democracy in favor of ‘investor friendly’ regimes.

“The World Bank, IMF, and private banks have consistently lavished huge sums on terror regimes, following their displacement of democratic governments, and a number of quantitative studies have shown a systematic positive relationship between U.S. and IMF/World Bank aid to countries and their violations of human rights.”

— Edward S. Herman
economist, U.S. media and foreign policy critic
author of The Real Terror Network

“[T]here seems to be nothing to prevent the transnational corporations taking possession of the planet and subjecting humanity to the dictatorship of capital... In order to crush any thought of organized resistance to the supporters of the new world order, tremendous police and military forces are being used to establish a doctrine of repression...”

— Christian la Brie
Le Monde Diplomatique

“Governments need armies to protect them against their enslaved and oppressed subjects.”

— Leo Tolstoy

“Any single man must judge for himself whether circumstances warrant obedience or resistance to the commands of the civil magistrate; we are all qualified, entitled, and morally obliged to evaluate the conduct of our rulers.

“This political judgment, moreover, is not simply or primarily a right, but like self-preservation, a duty to God. As such it is a judgment that men cannot part with according to the God of Nature.

“It is the first and foremost of our inalienable rights without which we can preserve no other.”

— John Locke
The ideological progenitor of the American Revolution

“Whenever the legislators endeavor to take away and destroy the property of the people, or to reduce them to slavery under arbitrary power, they put themselves into a state of war with the people, who are thereupon absolved from any further obedience...”

— John Locke
2nd Treatise on Government
Chapter 19  paragraph 222

“It is only when the factory workers refuse to make the stuff [poisonous herbicides], it is only when the loggers refuse to cut ancient trees, that we can ever hope for real and lasting change.

“This system cannot be stopped by force. It is violent and ruthless beyond the capacity of any people’s resistance movement. The only way I can even imagine stopping it is through massive non-cooperation.”

— Judi Bari
social justice activist & forest defender

“Reforms of the FBI and the CIA, even removal of the President from office, cannot remove the problem. American capitalism, based as it is on exploitation of the poor, with its fundamental motivation in personal greed, simply cannot survive without force — without a secret police force. The argument is with capitalism and it is capitalism that must be opposed, with its CIA, FBI and other security agencies understood as logical, necessary manifestations of a ruling class’s determination to retain power and privilege.”

— Phillip Agee
former CIA agent
CIA Diary: Inside The Company

“The American oligarchy increasingly has less in common with the American people than it does with the equivalent oligarchies in Germany or Mexico or Japan.”

— Lewis Lapham
editor of Harper’s

“The IMF represents the cruelty, cynicism, and crime with suits, computers and a lot of elegance. The IMF is a huge criminal, as any gangster, but one who dresses elegantly and who makes great decisions, who kills without staining its hands. With just one decision it makes, the IMF, in order to approve a loan, can decree death for millions of human beings or condemn them to an undignified life for a long time.

“If we are talking about the International Monetary Fund, we should define it in few words and it is this: A gangster, clinical in committing its crimes.”

— Subcomandante Marcos
in an interview with Zack de la Rocha

“We first crush people to the earth, and then claim the right of trampling on them forever, because they are prostrate.”

— Lydia Maria Child

“Laws are like spider webs. If some poor weak creature comes up against them — it is caught. But the bigger one can break through and get away.”

— Solon
Greek philosopher
c. 630—555 B.C.

“Poor people have access to the courts in the same sense that the Christians had access to the lions.”

— Judge Earl Johnson, Jr.

“The modern conservative is engaged in one of man’s oldest exercises in moral philosophy: that is the search for a superior moral justification for selfishness.”

— John Kenneth Galbraith
famous economist and author

“Society’s dominant discourse shapes not only its politics but the way people think about their personal lives and choices. Just as John F. Kennedy helped legitimize a discourse of idealism that gave impetus to the social movements of the 1960s, so Ronald Reagan managed to legitimize a discourse of selfishness and insensitivity that has had profound social consequences... Shifting society’s discourse — from one of selfishness and cynicism to one of idealism and caring — is the first and most important political goal...in the next several decades.”

— Michael Lerner
philosopher, psychologist, author

“The hidden hand of the market will never work without a hidden fist — McDonald’s cannot flourish without McDonnell-Douglas, the designer of the F-15.”

— Thomas Friedman
professional verbal bully
rabid Zionist columnist
for the New York Times

“America may be unique in being a country which has leapt from barbarism to decadence without touching civilization.”

— John O’Hara

“Central to [U.S.] foreign policy has been the active attempt to deprive governments and peoples of the independence that comes from self-sufficiency in the production of food.”

— Ramsey Clark
interview in The Sun magazine, August 2001
“Neighborhood Bully – Ramsey Clark on American Militarism”

“We lack a Nuremberg to judge the economic order imposed upon us, where every three years more men, women and children die of hunger and preventable diseases than died in the Second World War.”

— Fidel Castro
Cuban revolutionary leader
survivor of numerous CIA assassination attempts

“Socialism is not dead, it is not yet born.”

— Muammar Al Qadhafi
Libyan revolutionary leader
survivor of numerous CIA assassination attempts

“Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, from those who are cold and are not clothed.

“The world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children.”

— President Dwight D. Eisenhower
April 16, 1953

“A nation that enslaves another forges its own chains.”

— Karl Marx
international socialist
revolutionary thinker

“The American Revolution was a beginning, not a consummation!”

— Woodrow Wilson
28th President of the U.S.

“This country, with its institutions, belongs to the people who inhabit it. Whenever they shall grow weary of the existing government, they can exercise their constitutional right of amending it, or their revolutionary right to dismember it or overthrow it.”

— Abraham Lincoln
