History may appear to be a collection of accidents, but this is often the deus ex machina of ignorance providing a meaningless explanation of the inexplicable. American history has many foggy patches which seem to require the assertion of this device – often in the form of a lone nut. We aver that it is more often the case that evil forces, rather than strange accidents, shape American history.
Although we are not Marxists, we owe a debt to Karl Marx for identifying class warfare as a central element of economic and political history. Indeed, the Lord Jesus Christ told us that the Gentiles love to lord it over everyone else. We live in the times of the Gentiles characterized as of late by the domination of the white races over all the others.
But domination is not confined to nation against nation. It is class over class, and people over people.
As early as the American Civil War, a Rothschild published in the London Times an astonishing editorial c.1861 arguing for the break-up of America and defeat of Lincoln lest the people get used to the ideas of freedom and prosperity.
This germ of hostility to America came from the international class of the mid 19th C. who were the forerunners of the New World Order. They used the Confederacy to assassinate Abraham Lincoln whose overriding goal was to maintain the union of North and South despite their many differences. To the banksters, Lincoln was anathema because he opposed their banking cartels and supported national sovereignty.
These banksters provided the seed corn for America’s nascent royalty – the robber barons of the gilded age – to form a trans-Atlantic family of citizens of the world whose allegiance was not to the state but to the class of the wealthy.
The banksters of London had long ago subdued the British crown through the Bank of England, the central banking authority providing the Crown with the finances to wage its wars and colonial expansion. One of their prime tools for enforcing their rights was the use of intelligence, something at which the British are known to excel and whose fabled MI5 played a critical role in World War II.
Thus we see an early combination of banking with intelligence – a somewhat understandable development given that not all bank customers are honest. This alliance has become a standard artifact of modern life even down to the present moment in our very own Central Intelligence Agency. The CIA is not the servant of the military or the state but of the business interests which own it.
Although not all industrialists were evil at heart, enough of them were rapacious and powerful enough to begin programs of dominating and subjugating peoples at home and abroad – a desire which saw its first effulgence in the Spanish American War. Just a few years prior in 1890, the famous Sherman Antitrust Act was passed which clipped the wings of the plutocrats.
By 1900 the barons thought that they ruled roost as they had managed to parry labor strikes and legislation aimed at curtailing their many excesses. But the application of the Sherman Antitrust Act against the Standard Oil Company was the catalytic event which configured the class warfare which would ensue over the next century. The plutocrats struck back powerfully as they slowly overtook every aspect of national government.
Though they wisely acted through emissaries and intermediaries, we are now able to fully expose them for who and what they are – traitors to America.
To understand their mindsets, we have to take the other side of the argument to measure their grievances. They had built up fabulous commercial empires, invented the second industrial revolution, and propelled America to near equality with the greatest European powers. Therefore, who the hell was anybody to deprive them of their patrimony and legacy?
Many of their rank believed and practiced Noblesse Oblige, but a few tenacious ones insisted upon expressing their economic power as political clout. Thus they embarked upon a program of capturing the levers of power in what military officers today might call blowback. In other words, there was a cost to challenging the plutocrats.
We shall continue from here the next time.
