Those who, like Henry Ford, could see that “they fit it now” only sixteen years after Nilus’s first publication of the Protocols, naturally tended to concentrate their attention on the relatively recent phenomenon of Bolshevism. Few of them the understood the equally dangerous, if more insidious, danger of internationalism. Now, however, more than half a century after Nilus’s publication of the Protocols, the reality of that danger must be crystal clear to anybody who views the world situation objectively. The Protocols are full of references to a “Super Government,” PROTOCOL VI, for example, states:
“In every possible way we must develop the significance of our Super-Government by representing it as the Protector and Benefactor of all those who voluntarily submit to us.”
That is exactly the way in which the United Nations special agencies – UNESCO (U.N. Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization); ILO (International Labour Organization); WHO (World Health Organization); FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization); Commission of Human Rights; Genocide Convention, etc. – are represented. For some years there has been in existence an international organization calling itself the World Association of Parliamentarians for World Government, which pursues the same objective as that of another long-established international organization, Federal Union.
This body does not disuse the fact that the United Nations, by means of a few relatively minor changes in its Charter, could be transformed virtually over night into a World Government. There has long been agitation for the creation of a World Police Force. This would enable the United Nations Super-Government to function as a master of an all-powerful World Police State, and the closing years of the 1950’s have seen the agitators for a World Police Force come close to achieving their objective. The U.N. Emergency Force, established after the Suez crisis of 1956, has been openly regarded as a “pilot scheme.” Should the few changes in the Charter necessary to transform the U.N. into a Super-Government be made, it will have in the special agencies ready made Ministries of Education (or Propaganda), Labor, Health, Food and Agriculture, “Justice”, etc.
Can it be an accident that these things are so accurately for-shadowed in the Protocols? The full-scale World Super-Government is not the only, nor perhaps the most immediate, danger. It is obvious to everyone that the nations of the East are being herded into subjection under the dominance of the Soviet Union. But what of the nations of the West? Are they really the “free nations” which they are popularly supposed to be? Far from it! They are being herded into that same sort of pen as are the nations of the East under Communism. Late in 1957, the process had gone for enough to be given an official name. That name was the policy of inter-dependence.” The nations of the West are being brought under international control at political, military and economic levels. They are rapidly in process of becoming controlled also on the social level. All alike are being told that their only hope lies in the surrender of national sovereignty. National Parliaments must give way to such bodies as the Council of Europe or the Atlantic Council.
National Forces must be submerged in such bodies as the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), the Baghdad Pact or the South-East Treaty Organization (SEATO), so that no nation has control over its own means of defense. National economies must be submerged in such bodies as the Organization for European Economic Cooperation (OEEC), the European Payments Union (EPU) or the World Bank, so that no nation may control its own economic destiny. Even on the social level, individual national distinctions must disappear. For example, under the “Common Market” Treaty which unites six European nations on the economic plane, provision is made for the “equalization of social policies.” And strenuous efforts have been made to herd other European nations, Great Britain among them, into this same pen in the associated European Free Trade Area. In 1934, when the leader of the British Labor Party (Mr. Clement Attlee) told the party’s annual conference: “We are deliberately putting loyalty to a world order above loyalty to our own country,” he was widely execrated.
Twenty-three years of propaganda, however, leave their mark, and when, in 1957, a Conservative Prime Minister of Britain told the British people that they must surrender some of their national sovereignty to an unknown international cabal, scarcely a voice was raise in protest. At the close of 1957 there was an official declaration of the British Government’s support for the plan which was foreshadowed in the Protocols over sixty years ago. The Earl of Gosford, Joint Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, said in the House of Lords on 7th November, 1957:
“Her Majesty’s Government are fully in agreement with World Government. We agree that this must be the goal, and that every step that is humanly possible must be taken to reach that goal.”
All over the world “federation”, “integration”, “regionalization” and “inter-dependence” are the order of the day. All this is foreshadowed in the Protocols, published more than half-a-century ago by Sergyei Nilus, which, we are told are forgery. Can this be coincidence? Could any forger be so prescient? Or are the Protocols what Nilus and many others believed them to be – the blueprint for a conspiracy to destroy CHRISTIAN CIVILIZATION and place the whole world under the domination of a small, secret cabal?
I – “AGENTURE” and “THE POLITICAL” There are two words in this translation which are unusual, the words “Agentur” and “political” used as substantives. “Agentur” appears to be adopted from the original test and it means the whole body of agents and agencies directed by the Elders, whether members of the tribe or their XXXX tools. By “the Political” is meant not exactly the “body politic” but the entire machinery of politics.
II – The Symbolic Snake of XXXXism Chapter III opens with a reference to the symbolic Snake of XXXXism. In his Epilogue to the 1905 Edition of the Protocols Nilus gives the following interesting account of this symbol: According to the records of secret XXXX XXXXISM, Solomon and other XXXX learned men had already, in 929 B.C., thought out a theoretical scheme for the peaceful conquest of the whole universe by XXXX. As history developed, this scheme was worked out in detail and completed by men who were subsequently initiated in this question. The learned men decided by peaceful means to conquer the world for XXXX with the slyness of the Symbolic Snake, whose head was to represent those who have been initiated into the plans of the XXXX PEOPLE – the administration was always kept secret, even from the XXXX NATION itself. As this Snake penetrated into the hearts of the nations which it encountered it undermined and devoured all the PEOPLE power of these States. It is foretold that the Snake has sill to finish its work, strictly adhering to the designed plan, until the course which it has to run is closed by the return of its head to XXXX and until, by this means, the Snake has completed its round of Europe and has encircled it – and until, by dint of enchaining Europe, it has encompassed the whole world. This it is to accomplish by using every endeavor to subdue the other countries by an economic conquest. The return of the head of the Snake to XXXXcan only be accomplished after the power of all the Sovereigns of Europe has been laid low, that is to say, when by means of economic crises and wholesale destruction effected everywhere, there shall have been brought about a spiritual demoralization and a moral corruption, chiefly with the assistance of XXXX WOMEN masquerading as French, Italians, etc. These are the surest spreader of licentiousness into the lives of the leading men at the heads of nations. A map of the course of the Symbolic Snake is shown as follows: Its first stage in Europe was in 429 B.C. in Greece, where, about the time of Pericles, the Snake first started eating into the power of that country. The second stage was in Rome in the time of Augustus, about 69 B.C. The third in Madrid in the times of Charles V, in A.D. 1552. The fourth in Paris about 1790, in the time of Louis XVI. The fifth in London from 1814 onwards (after the downfall of Napoleon). The sixth in Berlin in 1871 after the Franco-Prussian war. The seventh in St. Petersburg, over which is drawn the head of the Snake under the date 1881.After these states which the Snake traversed have had the foundations of their constitutions shaken, Germany, with its apparent power, forming no exception to the rule. In economic conditions England and Germany are spared by the Snake, on which at present [i.e., 1905] all its efforts are concentrated. The future course of the Snake is not shown on this map, but arrows indicate its next movement towards Moscow, Kiev, and Odessa.It is now well know to us to what extent the latter cities form the centers of the militant XXXX RACE. Constantinople is shown as the last of the Snake’s course before it reaches Jerusalem.
III – The term “PEOPLEim” Meaning XXXX, is used throughout the Protocols and is retained by Mr. Marsden. The Protocols In 1884 the daughter of a Russian general, Mlle. Justine Glinka, was endeavoring to serve her country in Paris by obtaining political information, which she communicated to General Orgevskii in St. Petersburg. For this purpose she employed a XXXX, Joseph Schorst, member of the Mizraim Lodge in Paris. One day Schorst offered to obtain for her a document of great importance to Russia, on payment of 2,500 francs. This sum being received from St. Petersburg was paid over and the document handed to Mlle. Glinka.
She forwarded the French original, accompanied by a Russian translation, to Orgevskii, who in turn handed it to his chief, General Cherevin, for transmission to the Tsar. But Cherevin, under obligation to wealthy XXXX, refused to transmit it, merely filing it in the archives.
Meantime there appeared in Paris certain books on Russian court life which displeased the Tsar, who ordered his secret police to discover their authorship. This was falsely attributed, perhaps with malicious intent, to Mlle. Glinka, and on her return to Russia she was banished to her estate in Orel. To the marechalde noblesse of this district, Alexis Sukhotin, Mlle. Glinka gavea copy of the Protocols. Sukhotin showed the document to twofriends, Stepanov and Nilus; the former had it printed and circulated privately in 1897; the second, Professor Sergius A.Nilus, published it for the first time in Tsarskoe-Tselc (Russia)in 1901, in a book entitled The Great Within the Small. Then, about the same time, a friend of Nilus, G. Butmi, also brought it out and a copy was deposited in the British Museum on August 10,1906. Meantime, through XXXX members of the Russian police, minutes of the proceedings of the Basle congress in 1897 had been obtained and these were found to correspond with the Protocols.
In January 1917, Nilus had prepared a second edition, revised and documented, for publication. But before it could be put on the market, the revolution of March 1917 had taken place and Kerenski, who had succeeded to power, ordered the whole edition of Nilus’s book to be destroyed. In 1924, Prof. Nilus was arrested by the Cheka in Kiev, imprisoned, and tortured; he was told by the XXXX president of the court, that this treatment was meted out to him for “having done them incalculable harm in publishing the Protocols”. Released for a few months, he was again led before the G.P.U. (Cheka), this time in Moscow and confined. Set at liberty in February 1926, he died in exile in the district of Vladimir on January 13, 1929.] [This is a Russian edition by Sergius A. Nilus in 1905][Translated from the Russian Text by Victor E. Marsden –Formerly Russian Correspondent of “The Morning Post”]
PROTOCOL NO. 1
Frontline’s The Untouchables. “Despotism of capital” defined.
Right lies in Might. Freedom — an idea only. Liberalism. Gold. Faith. Self-Government. Despotism of Capital. The internal foe. The Mob. Anarchy. Politics versus Morals. The Right of the strong. The Invincibility of XXXX-Masonic authority. End justifies Means. The Mob a Blind Man. Political A.B.C. Party Discord. Most satisfactory form of rule-Despotism. Alcohol. Classicism. Corruption. Principles and rules of the XXXX-Masonic Government. Terror. ”Liberty, Equality, Fraternity.” Principle of Dynastic Rule. Annihilation of the privileges of the PEOPLE-Aristocracy (i.e., PEOPLE). The New Aristocracy. The psychological calculation. Abstractness of “Liberty.” Power of removal of representatives of the people.
“It must be noted that men with bad instincts are more in number than the good, and therefore the best results in governing them are attained by violence and terrorization, and not by academic discussions. Every man aims at power, everyone would like to become a dictator if only he could, and rare indeed are the men who would not be willing to sacrifice the welfare of all for the sake of securing their own welfare.”
Every man aims at power, everyone would like to become a dictator if only he could, and rare indeed are the men who would not be willing to sacrifice the welfare of all for the sake of securing their own welfare. What has restrained the beasts of prey who are called men? What has served for their guidance hitherto? In the beginnings of the structure of society they were subjected to brutal and blind force; afterwards — to Law, which is the same force, only disguised. I draw the conclusion that by the law of nature right lies in force.
Political freedom is an idea but not a fact. This idea one must know how to apply whenever it appears necessary with this bait of an idea to attract the masses of the people to one’s party for the purpose of crushing another who is in authority. This task is rendered easier if the opponent has himself been infected with the idea of freedom, so-called liberalism, and, for the sake of an idea, is willing to yield some of his power. It is precisely here that the triumph of our theory appears: the slackened reins of government are immediately, by the law of life, caught up and gathered together by a new hand, because the blind might of the nation cannot for one single day exist without guidance, and the new authority merely fits into the place of the old already weakened by liberalism. In our day the power which has replaced that of the rulers who were liberal is the power of Gold.
Time was when Faith ruled. The idea of freedom is impossible of realization because no one knows how to use it with moderation. It is enough to hand over a people to self-government for a certain length of time for that people to be turned into a disorganized mob. From that moment on we get internecine strife which soon develops into battles between classes, in the midst of which States burn down and their importance is reduced to that of a heap of ashes. Whether a State exhausts itself in its own convulsions, whether its internal discord brings it under the power of external foes — in any case it can be accounted irretrievably lost: it is in our power.
The despotism of Capital, which is entirely in our hands, reaches out to it a straw that the State, willy-nilly, must take hold of: if not — it goes to the bottom. Should anyone of a liberal mind say that such reflections as the above are immoral I would put the following questions: — If every State has two foes and if in regard to the external foe it is allowed and not considered immoral to use every manner and art of conflict, as for example to keep the enemy in ignorance of plans of attack and defense, to attack him by night or in superior numbers, then in what way can the same means in regard to a worse foe, the destroyer of the structure of society and the commonwealth, be called immoral and not permissible? Is it possible for any sound logical mind to hope with any success to guide crowds by the aid of reasonable counsels and arguments, when any objection or contradiction, senseless though it may be, can be made and when such objection may find more favor with the people, whose powers of reasoning are superficial?
Men in masses and the men of the masses, being guided solely by petty passions, paltry beliefs, customs, traditions and sentimental theorems, fall a prey to party dissension, which hinders any kind of agreement even on the basis of a perfectly reasonable argument. Every resolution of a crowd depends upon a chance or packed majority, which, in its ignorance of political secrets, put forth some ridiculous resolution that lays in the administration a seed of anarchy.
The political has nothing in common with the moral. The ruler who is governed by the moral is not a skilled politician, and is therefore unstable on his throne. He who wishes to rule must have recourse both to cunning and to make-believe. Great national qualities, like frankness and honesty, are vices in politics, for they bring down rulers from their thrones more effectively and more certainly than the most powerful enemy. Such qualities must be the attributes of the kingdoms of the PEOPLE, but we must in no wise be guided by them. Our right lies in force. The word “right” is an abstract thought and proved by nothing. The word means no more than: –Give me what I want in order that thereby I may have a proof that I am stronger than you. Where does right begin? Where does it end?
In any State in which there is a bad organization of authority, an impersonality of laws and of the rulers who have lost their personality amid the flood of rights ever multiplying out of liberalism, I find a new right — to attack by the right of the strong, and to scatter to the winds all existing forces of order and regulation, to reconstruct all institutions and to become the sovereign lord of those who have left to us the rights of their power by laying them down voluntarily in their liberalism. Our power in the present tottering condition of all forms of power will be more invisible than any other, because it will remain invisible until the moment when it has gained such strength that no cunning can any longer undermine it. Before us is a plan in which is laid down strategically the line from which we cannot deviate without running the risk of seeing the labor of many centuries brought to naught. In order to elaborate satisfactory forms of action it is necessary to have regard to the rascality, the slackness, the instability of the mob, its lack of capacity to understand and respect the conditions of its own life, or its own welfare. It must be understood that the might of a mob is blind, senseless and unreasoning force ever at the mercy of a suggestion from any side.
The blind cannot lead the blind without bringing them into the abyss; consequently, members of the mob, upstarts from the people even though they should be as a genius for wisdom, yet having no understanding of the political, cannot come forward as leaders of the mob without bringing the whole nation to ruin. Only one trained from childhood for independent rule can have understanding of the words that can be made up of the political alphabet. A people left to itself i.e., to upstarts from its midst, brings itself to ruin by party dissensions excited by the pursuit of power and honors and the disorders arising therefrom, Is impossible for the masses of the people calmly and without petty jealousies to form judgments, to deal with the affairs of the country, which cannot be mixed up with personal interests? Can they defend themselves from an external foe? It is unthinkable, for a plan broken up into as many parts as there are heads in the mob, loses all homogeneity, and thereby becomes unintelligible and impossible of execution.
It is only with a despotic ruler that plans can be elaborated extensively and clearly in such a way as to distribute the whole properly among the several parts of the machinery of the State: from this the conclusion is inevitable that a satisfactory form of government for any country is one that concentrates in the hands of one responsible person. Without an absolute despotism there can be no existence for civilization which is carried on not by the masses but by their guide, whosoever that person may be. The mob is a savage and displays its savagery at every opportunity. The moment the mob seizes freedom in its hands it quickly turns to anarchy, which in itself is the highest degree of savagery. Behold the alcoholized animals, bemused with drink, the right to an immoderate use of which comes along with freedom. It’s not for us and ours to walk that road. The peoples of the NON-XXXX are bemused with alcoholic liquors; their youth has grown stupid on classicism and from early immorality, into which it has been inducted by our special agents — by tutors, lackeys, governesses in the houses of the wealthy, by clerks and others, by our women in the places of dissipation frequented by the PEOPLE. In the number of these last I count also the so-called” society ladies,” voluntary followers of the others in corruption and luxury. Our countersign is — Force and Make-believe. Only force conquers in political affairs, especially if it be concealed in the talents essential to statesmen.
Violence must be the principle, and cunning and make-believe the rule for governments which do not want to lay down their crowns at the feet of agents of some new power. This evil is the one and only means to attain the end, the good. Therefore we must not stop at bribery, deceit and treachery when they should serve towards the attainment of our end. In politics one must know how to seize the property of others without hesitation if by it we secure submission and sovereignty. Our State, marching along the path of peaceful conquest, has the right to replace the horrors of war by less noticeable and more satisfactory sentences of death, necessary to maintain the terror which tends to produce blind submission. Just but merciless severity is the greatest factor of strength in the State: not only for the sake of gain but also in the name of duty, for the sake of victory, we must keep to the program of violence and make-believe. The doctrine of squaring accounts is precisely as strong as the means of which it makes use. Therefore it is not so much by the means themselves as by the doctrine of severity that we shall triumph and bring all governments into subjection to our super-government. It is enough for them to know that we are merciless for all disobedience to cease.
Far back in ancient times we were the first to cry among the masses of the people the words “Liberty, Equality, Fraternity,” words many times repeated since those days by stupid poll-parrots who from all sides round flew down upon these baits and with them carried away the well-being of the world, true freedom of the individual, formerly so well guarded against the pressure of the mob. The would-be wise men of the PEOPLE, the intellectuals, couldn’t make anything out of the uttered words in their abstractness; did not note the contradiction of their meaning and inter-relation: did not see that in nature there is no equality, cannot be freedom; that Nature herself has established inequality of minds, of characters, and capacities, just as immutably as she has established subordination to her laws: never stopped to think that the mob is a blind thing, that upstarts elected from among it to bear rule are, in regard to the political, the same blind men as the mob itself, that the adept, though he be a fool, can yet rule, whereas the non-adept, even if he were a genius, understands nothing in the political — to all these things the PEOPLE paid no regard; yet all the time it was based upon these things that dynastic rule rested: the father passed on to the son a knowledge of the course of political affairs in such wise that none should know it but members of the dynasty and none could betray it to the governed.
As time went on the meaning of the dynastic transference of the true position of affairs in the political was lost, and this aided the success of our cause. In all corners of the earth the words “Liberty, Equality, Fraternity” brought to our ranks, thanks to our blind agents, whole legions who bore our banners with enthusiasm. And all the time these words were canker-worms at work boring into the well-being of the PEOPLE, putting an end everywhere to peace, quiet, solidarity and destroying all the foundations of the PEOPLE a States. As you will see later, this helped us to our triumph; it gave us the possibility, among other things, of getting into our hands the master card — the destruction of the privileges, or in other words of the very existence of the aristocracy of the PEOPLE, that class which was the only defense peoples and countries had against us. On the ruins of the natural and genealogical aristocracy of the PEOPLE we have set up the aristocracy of our educated class headed by the aristocracy of money. The qualifications for this aristocracy we have established in wealth, which is dependent upon us, and in knowledge, for which our learned elders provide the motive force. Our triumph has been rendered easier by the fact that in our relations with the men whom we wanted we have always worked upon the most sensitive chords of the human mind, upon the cash account, upon the cupidity, upon the insatiability for material needs of man: and each one of these human weaknesses, taken alone, is sufficient to paralyze initiative, for it hands over the will of men to the disposition of him who has bought their activities. The abstraction of freedom has enabled us to persuade the mob in all countries that their government is nothing but the steward of the people who are the owners of the country, and that the steward may be replaced like a worn-out glove. It is this possibility of replacing the representatives of the people which has placed them at our disposal, and, as it were, given us the power of appointment.
