This post will not be easy to write. There is too much I need to explain, and even then, there will be much more I have to leave out or I risk losing even the most dedicated reader. Please keep this in mind as you read this post. If you think something is missing, it doesn’t mean I do not know about it, but more likely, that I left it out intentionally. Still, this may be one of the most important posts you will ever read. I am going to take you through history and connect a lot of dots that most people do not realize are connected. I only hope you will stay with me as I try to connect some dots for you, and that you’ll do your best to help me by trying to remember the things you have learned that might add to and support the story I am trying to tell you.
I want to start with a story from the Blaze, and a clip from Glenn Beck’s radio/TV show. The story is about something Obama did, and the clip connects the Obama piece to the roots of the Progressive movement. These will take you some time, but they are essential to understanding the ground work for the rest of this piece. I will certainly understand if this story takes you several days to get through, but please, do your best to work through all of it as I present it. It really is that important and it will explain the driving force behind everything you see happening in our world today:
Here is a link to the book Beck is discussing, “The Road We are Traveling.” I would suggest you download and save the pdf. But, even if you do not, you need to go to pages 94-96 and read them very carefully. You will find these key points:
1. Strong, centralized government.
2. Powerful Executive at the expense of Congress and the Judicial.
3. Government controlled banking, credit and securities exchange.
4. Government control over employment.
5. Unemployment insurance, old age pensions.
6. Universal medical care, food and housing programs.
7. Access to unlimited government borrowing.
8. A government managed monetary system.
9. Government control over all foreign trade.
10. Government control over natural energy sources, transportation and agricultural production.
11. Government regulation of labor.
12. Youth camps devoted to health discipline, community service, and ideological teaching consistent with those of the authorities.
13. Heavy progressive taxation and hidden taxes on nation’s wealth.
Now, in the description of this book, it states:
“The Fabian Socialist Revolution began in earnest in 1933 with the imposition of the Welfare State and has been steadily progressing since.”
The reference to the Fabians is crucial. In fact, it is the key to understanding what has driving the direction of the world since the late 19th Century.
On September 12, 1905, in the loft above Peck’s restaurant at 140 Fulton St in lower Manhattan, a small group of young men met to plan the overthrow of the Christian world-view that still pervaded America. This first meeting consisted of only five men. Upton Sinclair – a writer and socialist; Jack London – a writer; Thomas Wentworth Higgins – a Unitarian minister; J.G. Phelp Stokes – husband of the socialist leader; and Clarence Darrow – a lawyer. They formed an association known as The Intercollegiate Socialist Society. Their stated goals were “to promote an intelligent interest in socialism among college men and women.” They were determined to implement the ideas of Karl Marx in America. They were also connected to, influenced and supported by the Fabian Society in England.
[POINT: right here is the source of your ‘elitist’ world view among the people we are discussing. They see themselves as intellectually superior, and, thus, as naturally ‘above’ the masses in their understanding. All other failings of elitism follow and flow from this false assumption on their part.]
These men employed the proven method of ‘gradualism,’ a tactic adopted from the Roman general, Quintus Fabius Maximus. They worked slowly, gradually infiltrating college campuses and the public school system [this is what they mean by ‘progress:’ slow gains — eating the whale bite-by-bite]. By 1912, they had 44 chapters in colleges. By 1917, there were 61 chapters in colleges and 12 in graduate schools. In 1921, they changed the name of their organization to The League of Industrial Democracy. It was at this point that they entered into the main stream of American educational elites. By the mid-1930’s, there were 125 chapters and student groups. At this time, John Dewy, the godfather of Progressive education in America, was the vice-president of the league. By 1941, Dewey was the President and the liberal socialist theologian, Reinhold Niebuhr, was treasurer. And this is how our schools were turned against the American people and transformed into the very vehicle through which this nation is being made into a Fascist cousin of the Marxist ideal.
Enter Woodrow Wilson and his essay, The Study of Administration. We must remember that Wilson came from academia, and that he was a supporter of the ideas being pushed by The League of Industrial Democracy. So it is small wonder that we find these words in the opening paragraph of his essay:
I suppose that no practical science is ever studied where there is no need to know it. The very fact, therefore, that the eminently practical science of administration is finding its way into college courses in this country would prove that this country needs to know more about administration, were such proof of the fact required to make out a case.
So, let’s start putting some pieces together. If you watched Beck’s clip, then you know he is reacting to Obama openly saying we are still on the road we started traveling back at the turn of the last century. Beck then explained how the move was toward centralization to improve administration – both in business and in government. I have just shown you where this came from in American politics: Wilson, via the five men who started it all in our colleges. This is also the direct connection to Common Core Beck was talking about in the video clip I provided, and Common Core goes back to John Dewey, via men like William Ayres. But there’s more to this. Wilson was not the first to argue for rule by technocratic ‘experts,’ but he was the primary force driving it into public acceptance. And the whole idea was supposedly based in ‘science.’ Read the rest of this essay on Administration and you will find the seeds of our modern bureaucracy were planted there, by Wilson.
But Wilson laid more groundwork for the modern society than just the framework for a bureaucracy ruled by ‘scientific experts.’ He also asserted that government is a living thing unto itself, and he clarified the argument against the Constitution and for an American dictator. Read his essay, Constitutional Government Chapter III: The President of the United States. In this essay, you will find a total dismissal of the Constitution and an assertion that our founders were not trying to limit the power of the Executive, but rather, to make a ruler even more powerful than a king:
The framers of the Constitution made in our President a more powerful, because a more isolated, king than the one they were imitating;
Sadly, Wilson was so consumed with himself and his own ambitions that he did not see his arguments are self-contradicting. All he wanted was to justify his lust for power and control over others. If you value control and order over liberty, you will likely miss these contradictions – just as Wilson did. However, if you value the individual, individual rights and liberty over control and order, then the contradictions in Wilson’s arguments will stand out like flashing red lights. Bring them forward and you will see that they have been largely implemented in America, and are the primary source of much of our nation’s dysfunction.
But the point is, Wilson argued for dictatorship. He just appealed to ‘efficiency’ as a vehicle to convince others to accept his power grab. And, naturally, centralization was the natural way to maximize efficiency, and ‘experts’ who have been trained in the ‘sciences’ of society should be the natural leaders of this centralized administration. At least, this is the appeal Wilson tried to make, and it is likely that he even believed it, as have many others pushing socialism. Read Wilson’s essay, Leaders of Men.
In this essay, Wilson justifies dictatorship, asserting that men are just a resource for the leader to use as he sees fit:
The competent leader of men cares little for the interior niceties of other people’s characters: he cares much-everything for the external uses to which they may be put. His will seeks the lines of least resistance; but the whole question with him is a question of the application of force. There are men to be moved: how shall he move them? He supplies the power; others supply only the materials upon which that power operates. The power will fail if it be misapplied; it will be misapplied if it be not suitable both in kind and method to the nature of the materials upon which it is spent; but that nature is, after all, only its means. It is the power which dictates, dominates: the materials yield. Men are as clay in the hands of the consummate leader.
In another essay, What is Progress?, Wilson defines Progressivism, and it is exactly what Beck has tried to explain to his audience. If you have ever heard Beck tell you they are building a machine, then you might recognize that message in Wilson’s words:
Well, we are architects in our time, and our architects are also engineers. We don’t have to stop using a railroad terminal because a new station is being built. We don’t have to stop any of the processes of our lives because we are rearranging the structures in which we conduct those processes. What we have to undertake is to systematize the foundations of the house, then to thread all the old parts of the structure with the steel which will be laced together in modern fashion, accommodated to all the modern knowledge of structural strength and elasticity, and then slowly change the partitions, relay the walls, let in the light through new apertures, improve the ventilation; until finally, a generation or two from now, the scaffolding will be taken away, and there will be the family in a great building whose noble architecture will at last be disclosed, where men can live as a single community, cooperative as in a perfected, coordinated beehive, not afraid of any storm of nature, not afraid of any artificial storm, any imitation of thunder and lightning, knowing that the foundations go down to the bedrock of principle, and knowing that whenever they please they can change that plan again and accommodate it as they please to the altering necessities of their lives.
[NOTE: this is an assertion that they are building a machine, as well as a boast that they can make man into whatever they wish: that they believe they can ‘engineer’ humanity. This is the drive behind eugenics, and it continues today.]
And, finally, in Who is a Progressive?, Wilson says this:
We of to-day who stand for the Progressive movement here in the United States are not welded to any particular kind of machinery, save solely as means to an end desired. Our aim is to secure the real and not nominal rule of the people.
What is easily missed is that Wilson was not speaking about securing the peoples’ right and ability to rule themselves; he was speaking about the Progressive desire to secure the ability to rule over the people. When we read all of Wilson’s essays I have cited, you will find that he was advancing the Communist model. In fact, if you read these essays, he says so. But he also tells his reader that – at the time – America would never accept Communism. So, in order to get Americans to accept it, it had to be ‘re-packaged.’ That package is what we know as Progressivism. He used the word because Americans have always been enamored with the notion of progress. The problem is – as it always is when dealing with people who seek to deceive – is that Wilson’s idea of ‘progress’ was different from that of the average American. Wilson knew this, and he exploited it to trick America into abandoning the Declaration and Constitution and starting down the path toward Communism. Read those essays and you will find all of this to be true. What’s more, you will see the foundation of modern America was laid out by Wilson in very plain and explicit terms. As you read his essays, you will see how the things he advocated have been implemented.
The next thing we need to understand is that Wilson was just one of the public figures who pushed this agenda. There were many more, and they were international. If you read my posts, you will find the words of men such as John Dewey, Edward Bernays, George Orwell, George Bernard Shaw; Joseph Goebbels, Adolf Hitler, Josef Stalin, Lenin, Marx, FDR, Goodnow, Huxley and many, many more. And you will also find that – to one extent or another – all of these men are expressing the same central themes. Often, they use the same words, yet they are separated by decades in time. These are the inter-connecting threads that indicate an on-going agenda in this world.
Now, go back to The Road We are Traveling and consider that Stuart Chase was just predicting a structure that Carroll Quigley later said was built and now governs the world. Quigley was inside this cabal trying to re-shape the world, and he wrote a book, Tragedy and Hope. In that book, he claims that these people interconnected the global economy to provide a means of controlling nations. The goal was to prevent another global war, but it also gave them a means to force nations to comply with the central control. If a nation were to defy the people controlling the system, then those people could cripple that nation’s economy. Many people dismiss Quigley, but they shouldn’t. He was just telling us that they did exactly what Stuart told us they were going to do. And, if you read None Dare Call It Treason, you will find the documentation showing who built this system and how they did it. You will also learn how it works and how it is used to manipulate global events. All three of these books, The Road We are Travelling, Tragedy & Hope and None Dare Call It Treason, they are all explaining and detailing the same things and are mutually supporting even though they are totally independent of each other.
This brings us to something else we should consider. Go back and look at the list of things Stuart told us needed to be done to construct this new system after WW II and compare it to the list of things the Communists reportedly listed as needing to be done to turn the United States into a Communist nation. It is a long list, but if you read it, you will see that everything on Stuart’s list is on the Communists’ list. You’ll also find that both of them have been largely completed. You just have to learn to look for how they were done; for the form they actually take in practice. And when you are doing this, remember that these people try to take a path of least resistance. So look for things that achieve their stated goals in a way that we – the American people – actually accept and support. You see, they have designed a cage that we willingly built for them. All they had to do is keep our eyes closed long enough to complete it and slam the door. After that, they won’t care if we see the truth because it will be too late. And when you understand this key point, you will understand why they are desperate to control the media. They must control the narrative or they risk losing everything they have been building. As with any deception, the moment the truth is seen, the deception falls apart. This is all I am trying to help you do: see the truth.
I’ll end here. I understand that – if they manage to read to this point – many will think I am a paranoid conspiracy kook. I also understand that this is what they want you to think. You do their work for them when you accept this excuse instead of taking the time to read what I have presented. But I do not write for those who have accepted their indoctrination; I write for those who want to see and will do the work necessary to do so. If this is you, and you read all the links I have provided, I hope that you will start to see that the world we think we know is a fairy tale. Reality is something much different, and much more sinister. But there is an explanation for this, too – I just have to get you to see this part of the picture before I can get you to consider the next level.
