Mange høytstående embetsmenn har forsøkt å advare mot oligarkene som i generasjoner har opptrådt som menneskehetens dukkemestre.
En ting er at de har direkte innflytelse på alt som skjer. Noe annet er at deres makt er så kapital at folk flest lever i en virtuell virkelighet. Sannheten har blitt en fiende vi kaller ondskapsfull løgn, mens løgnen blir lovprist som sannhet.
Her er litt som omhandler noe av dette. Først ute er president John F. Kennedy, og sitatet er fra hans tale til den amerikanske redaktørforeningen i 1961.
John F. Kennedy Speeches
The President and the Press: Address before the American Newspaper Publishers Association, April 27, 1961
For we are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies primarily on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence–on infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of elections, on intimidation instead of free choice, on guerrillas by night instead of armies by day. It is a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific and political operations.
I boka The New Freedom: A Call for the Emancipation of the Generous Energies of a People, Woodroow Wilson, 1913, side 13, skrev den nylig avgåtte amerikanske presidenten:
Since I entered politics, I have chiefly had men’s views confided to me privately. Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the field of commerce and manufacture, are afraid of somebody, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it.
Franklin D. Roosevelt skrev i et brev til Col. Edward Mandell House, 21. november 1933:
The real truth of the matter is, as you and I know, that a financial element in the larger centers has owned the Government ever since the days of Andrew Jackson — and I am not wholly excepting the Administration of W. W. The country is going through a repetition of Jackson’s fight with the Bank of the United States — only on a far bigger and broader basis.
John Francis Hylan var borgermester i New York i perioden 1918-1925. Den 26. mars 1922 sa han i en tale:
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.
