Part 3: The Creature from Jekyll Island
One of the most complete works about the secret organizations that are behind the scenes is Tragedy and Hope by Dr. Carroll Quigley. He was a professor at Georgetown University. Bill Clinton was one of his students.
Dr. Quigley was not just an average academic. He had been associated with the dynasties of the super-rich in Europe and America. He was the consummate insider.
His 1300-page book about history was not for the masses. It was for the elite – and the intellectuals. In his book, he exposes the greatest secret of our time. Strangely, he supported their goals but absolutely exposed them as well.
Very unexpectedly, quotes from his book turned up in the annals of the John Birch Society, which exposes the hidden power structure in the United States. That created a larger demand for his book, but by people who were diametrically opposed to its operation and philosophy.
Dr. Quigley reported that in 1971 he was informed that the publisher of his book (only 2,000 copies went out) had destroyed the plates. The rare book price went into the hundreds of dollars range. He believes Tragedy and Hope was suppressed.
Why would “men in power” want to suppress this book? Probably for one reason: Dr. Quigley has described the goals of these financiers as:
“…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. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent private meetings and conferences…”
In other words, each central bank, whether it be the Bank of England, the Bank of France, the Federal Reserve and so forth would, through the hands of men, dominate their respective governments by their ability to control treasury loans, foreign exchanges and other measures.
That is, of course, what they don’t want you to know. Quigley calls this group a “network.” The network is directed by a secret society. Members are in key positions. The secret society is called “the Round Table groups.” In my book, I explain that these come in many names: the Council on Foreign Relations, the Trilateral Commission and similar groups in London. At the center, you have complete control. These are built from the center out, with the people at the outermost rings having very little real knowledge at all.
To paraphrase Henry Ford, those who oppose their goals and threaten to expose the inner workings of this group are faced with unexpected scandals, investigations and even possible impeachment. Does this sound familiar? They generally place bets on all horses, but when one arrives into power totally from the left field, and beholden to no one, then suddenly their media and their power plays emerge from every direction.
Experience hath shown that even under the best forms of government those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny. –Thomas Jefferson
