NOTE, I did not write the below and do not know this person.
It is an excellent article. However, the usual caveat -- all rat poison is 99% tasty food (James Floyd, 1996) -- still controls regarding any future information from the same source. Reliability and truth over time are the only genuine test.

Millions of Americans are concerned and frustrated over mishappenings in our nation. We keep electing new Presidents who weemingly promise faithfully to uphold the Constitution, douse the fires of inflation, put the blocks on extravagant government spending, put the economy on an even keel, reverse the trend which is turning the country into a moral sewer, and toss the criminals into prison where they belong. Yet, despite high hopes and glittering campaign promises, these problems continue to worsen no matter who is in office. Each new administration, whether it be Republican or Democrat, continues the same basic policies of the previous administration which it had so thoroughly denounced during the election campaign.
Many of the major world events that are shaping our destinies occur because somebody or somebodies have planned them that way. If we were merely dealing with the law of averages, half of the events affecting our nation's well-being should be good for America. If we were dealing with mere incompetence, our leaders should occasionally make a mistake in our favor. Those who believe the major world events result from planning are laughed at for believing in the "conspiracy theory of history." If you believe that something like 32,496 consecutive coincidences over the past forty years stretches the law of averages a bit, you are a kook!
To inspect the evidence of the existence of a conspiracy guiding our political destiny from behind the scenes would force many people to repudiate a lifetime of accumulated opinions. It takes a person with strong character indeed to face the facts and admit he or she has been wrong even if it was because of misinformation. Politicians and "intellectuals" are attracted to the concept that events are propelled by some mysterious tide of history or happen by accident. By this reasoning they hope to escape the blame when things go wrong.
Most intellectual deal with the conspiratorial theory of history simply by ignoring it. If the silent treatment doesn't work, these "objective" scholars and mass media opinion molders resort to personal attacks, ridicule and satire. The personal attacks tend to divert attention from the facts which an author or speaker is trying to expose. The idea is to force the person exposing the conspiracy to stop the exposure and spend his and effort defending himself.
The most effective weapons, however, used against the conspiratorial theory of history are ridicule and satire. One technique which can be used is to expand the conspiracy to the extent it becomes absurd. Some conspiratorialists overdraw the pricture by expanding the conspriacy to include every local knee-jerk liberal activist and government bureaucrat. Or, because of racial or religious bigotry, they will take small fragments of legitimate evidence and expand them into a conclusion that will support their particular, i.e., the conspiracy is totally "Jewish," "Catholic," "Masonic", etc. These people do not help to expose the conspiracy, but, sadly play into the hands of those who want the public to believe that all conspiratorialists are screwballs.
In most cases, Liberals simply accuse all those who discuss conspiracy of being paranoid. Then comes the coup de grace -- labeling the conspiratorial theor as the "devil theory of history."
With the leaders of the academic and communications assuming this sneering attitude towards the conspiratorial theory of history, it is not surprising that millions of innocent and well-meaning people, in a natural desire not to appear naive, assume the attitudes and repeat the cliches of the opinion makers.
The "accidentalists" would have us believe that ascribing any of our problems to planning is "simplistic" and all our problems are caused by Poverty, Ignorance and Disease -- hereinafter abbreviated as PID. They ignore the fact that organized conspirators use PID, real and imagined, as an excuse to build a jail for us all. Most of the world has been in PID since time immemorial and it takes incredibly superficial thinking to ascribe the richocheting of the United States government from one disaster to another over the last 40 years to PID. "Accidentalists" ignore the fact that some of the more advanced nations in the world have been captured by Communists. Czechoslovakia was one of the world's most modern industrial nations and Cuba had the second highest per capita income of any nation in Central and South America.
Professor Carroll Quigley reveals in his 1300-page, 8 pound tome TRAGEDY AND HOPE, the existence of the conspiratorial network. He does not formulate the theory, just reveals this network's existence from firsthand experience. He also makes it clear that it is only the network's secrecy and not their goals to which he objects.
"I know of the operations of this network because I have studied it for twenty years and was permitted for two years, in the early 1960s, to examine its papers and secret records. I have no aversion to it or to most of its aims and have for much of my live, been close to it and many of its instruments. I have objecte, both in the past and recently, to a few of its policies ... but in general my chief difference of opinion is that it wishes to remain unknown, and I believe its role in history is significant enough to be known." [Emphasis added]
Professor Quigley reveals the aim of this network is "nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole." In other words, this power mad clique wants to control and rule the world. Even more frightening, they want total control over all individual actions. The Professor observes: "... his [the individual's] freedom and choice will be controlled within very narrow alternatives by the fact that he will be numbered from birth and followed, as a number, through his educational training, his required military or other public service, his tax contributions, his health and medical requirements, and his final retirement and death benefits." In otherwords, this network wants control over all natural resources, business, banking and transportation by controlling the governments of the world. In order to accomplish these aims the conspirators have had no qualms about formenting wars, depressions and hatred.
Other honest scholars finding the same individuals at the scenes of disastrous political fires over and over again have concluded that there is obviously an organization of pyromaniacs at work in the world. We will call this clique of self-perpetuating conspriators INSIDERS.
Religous leaders are aware of the existence of this conspiracy. Father Pedro Arrupe, head of the Jesuit Order of the Roman Catholic Church, made the following charges during his remarks to the Ecumenical Council:
"This...Godless society operates in an extremely efficient manner at least in its higher levels of leadership. It makes use of every possible means at its disposal, be they scientific, technical, social or economic. "It follows a perfectly mapped-out strategy. It holds almost complete sway in international organizations, in financial circles, in the field of mass communications; press,cinema, radio and televison."
First job of any conspiracy is to convince everyone else that no conspiracy exists. People know from personal experience that a news story is not the whole story, but many assume that our own case is unique. Because the Establishment controls the media, anyone exposing the INSIDERS will be the recipeint of a continuous fusillade of invective from newspapers, magazines, TV and radio. In this manner one is threatened with loss of "social respectability" if he dares broach the idea that there is organization behind any of the problems currently wracking America. For many people social status comes before intellectual honesty. Social position is more important to many people than is the survival of freedom in America.
People have an infinite capacity for rationalization when it comes to refusing to face the threat to America's survival. Instead of getting mad at the INSIDERS, these people actually get angry at those who are trying to save the country by exposing the conspirators.
One thing which makes it so hard for some socially minded people to assess the conspiratorial evidence objectively is that the conspirators come from the very highest social strata. They are immensely wealthy, highly educated and extremely cultured. Nobody enjoys being put in the position of accusing prominent people of conspiring to enslave their fellow Americans. The INSIDERS know that if the business and professional community will not take a stand to save the private enterprise system, the socialism through which they intend to control the world will be inevitable.
Hopefully the conspirators have underestimated the courage and patriotism remaining in the American people. The militia movement and patriot movement ranks swell each passing day as more and more Americans become informed. There seems to be those not mesmerized by the television set, who put God, family and country above social status, who have banded together to expose and destroy the conspiracy of the INSIDERS. So my Patriotic Brothers and Sisters of America, continue to stand proud and tall. Continue the hue and cry! We are being heard and if God is willing, we will expose those who would sell our freedoms to the highest bidder!
Yours in Freedom,
Running with the pack!!

"Government is not reason. Government is not eloquence. It is force. And, like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master."
"There's no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren't enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible to live without breaking laws."
