The Global Satanic Elite has been mis-named in many different ways; The Illuminati, The Global Zionist Capitalist Conspiracy, the New World Order, the Banking Elite, the Jewish Conspiracy and recently, the 1%. These are all less than accurate denominations for what people agree is a small group of highly motivated, highly powerful individuals, plotting the course of global and local history.
This term of closely related to the 17th and 18th century Enlightenment in Europe. Germany was the founding terrain of the Illuminati in 1776, initially as a secret society. The Illuminati dedicated itself, secretly to work towards getting European hearts and minds away from the traditional ideas espoused by the church, and to spread a purely secular and scientific mindset. The core idea of the Illuminati, in which they were obviously successful, was to shift power away from central monarchs and elected governments, towards powerful private citizens. Although many believe this group to be highly active still in secretly perpetuating a global privileged elite, I do not find it plausible. It will be very difficult to maintain such a level of secrecy today, and thousands of people would relish an opportunity to expose such a super-secret society. They were however until today, as demonstrated right here in South Africa, successful in making governments completely impotent as expressions of the will of the people.
The Global Zionist Capitalist Conspiracy?
It is strange that Capitalism and Zionism should be grouped together to the exclusion of Communism. A brief reading of the history of Communism will show the reader that Communism was very Zionist in its early stages. The Communist Soviet Union and Ukraine after all joined the vote by the Security Council of the UN to admit Israel in 1948, after Russia gave very early recognition to Zionist Israel on 17 May 1948. (Israel came into existence 3 days earlier.) (See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_recognition_of_Israel) If you read up about the Bolshevik revolution in Russia, you will find that secular Jews provided the intellectual muscle to that revolution. (See Behind Communism, by Frank L Britton, circa 1953.) These same Bolshevik revolutionaries voiced very little or no opposition to European Zionism, formally founded in Europe in 1897 at the first international Zionist Congress. It is secular Jews who ended up as the backbone of Israel, then and now. From Russia and communist Eastern Europe also came the bulk of Israel’s new leadership. My point is that there was no disharmony ever between Communism and Zionism, so the Global Zionist Capitalist conspiracy is a misnomer.
Okay, so what about using the term Global Zionist conspiracy? Although I see more validity in using this term in reference to the global power elite, I think it lets off the hook many who are very much part of the conspiracy to rob ordinary people of their prosperity and happiness. If Zionism has only really been around since 1897, then what about the preceding 100 years, when the plan of global control by an elite was already in full swing. And what if Israel disappears tomorrow? Will the global controllers disappear? I think not. These villains are not loyal to any piece of earth, and will drop Israel like a hot potato if times should change. Still, I would agree, in the 20th century, the control elite by-and-large took on Zionism as a pet project.
The New World Order?
George Bush, and his speech titled “Toward a New World Order” made in 1990 are often used as references for those that accuse the elite of setting up a global state of control, centered around international bodies like the UN, the IMF and the World Bank. The New World Order is regarded as a global control mechanism whereby nations relinquish their independence to a small band of powerfully global elitists. Alex Jones, US talk show host, often uses this term. When he uses the term, he portrays the New World Order as reliant on military style police establishments and a generally fascistic form of crowd control. My problem with this type of characterization of the global controllers is that it assumes a very rigid, bureaucratic and institutionalized form of control, which ordinary people will find hard to believe. Very few in the US or Europe will buy into the idea that they have become unwilling captives within a fascistic system of global control. The global controllers indeed use much more insidious and deceptive means to give effect to their general system of control. The other problem I have with this term is that many a justice-seeking nation may sit on UN bodies, and these bodies often act as a thorn in the flesh of the control elite.
This term is used to highlight the power of the global interest-based, fiat-currency based banking system. Since the printing of all but one or two nations’ currencies are privatized to private bankers, these bankers are seen as wielding ultimate power to control the destiny of nations. If almost every nation has the printing and the control of its monitory system placed in the hands of a small number of private individuals, and if these individuals are connected globally through the European based Bank for International Settlements, then it is not farfetched to claim that a small number of powerful bankers, located in Europe really control the destiny of almost all nations. Money, after all, makes the “world go ‘round”, as the saying goes. What is my problem then? Well, if you really think about it, money does not really “make the world go ‘round!” ; at least not for everyone. There are many people in the world, who do not take banks to be of prime importance. Drug merchants for example, operate mostly outside of the banking system, as do many other barter-based communities. I agree that the term Global Banking Elite highly affects the destiny of anyone invested in the global banking system through a mortgage, or through stock market investments. Obviously bankers affect the prosperity or lack thereof also in the nations where they control the flow money. They DO inflict debt-based hardship and poverty where-ever they reign.
The Global Jewish Conspiracy?
In my book Our Godly Struggle, available for download on this site (thecall.co.za), I do highlight the role of Jewish connectedness in the original setting up of the global control network since the time of the French Revolution in 1789. It is however very easy to go from an analytical framing of the role of Jews in the global control elite to a blunt anti-Semitic mindset, and one must be careful of doing that. Jews are not the problem, by virtue of being Jews, I believe. A group of connected individuals, connected by historical and social bonds, who absolve themselves from the reigning social customs and ethics IS the problem. But such a group may well also be Muslims or Hindus. The term Global Jewish Conspiracy is based on the claim that in our times, it is the case that a group of powerful Jews (to the exclusion of most ordinary Jews), have used their social and historical connections to establish a powerful global network. I often find many conspiracy theorists, in an effort to substantiate their claim, point out how many Jews are present in almost every institution of power. The American supreme court for example is cited as being 4 out of 9 Jewish, in huge disproportion to the less than 1% of Americans being Jewish.
Although this can be an interesting pastime, I must warn against taking this too far. What if Jews, in their social and psychological upbringing just happened to inculcate the types of values that make out of them better performers? Albert Einstein was certainly not a bigoted Jew or a Zionist when he came up with his ground-breaking theories. Are we then going to call modern science a product of a Jewish conspiracy? Also, just as you may find Jews taking a lead and steering role in the deplorable American foreign policy, you will find Jews leading the condemnation of American aggression. Also with regard to Zionist Israel, you will often find vociferous rabbi’s condemning Israeli illegitimacy. I will therefore argue that the term Global Jewish conspiracy must be used with some qualification. The term needs clarification to mean something more similar to the term Italian Mafia; a conspiracy of criminal elite Jews instead of a conspiracy by Jews. And believe me, I have no qualms with applying the term ‘conspiracy of Muslim elites’ when referring to the cabal that supported the secession of Pakistan from India in 1947.
This term came into common use during the Wall Street-centered “Occupation” movement in 2012. I think this term is a cop-out, and is an abstract and non-committal way of articulating the existence of a control elite, without getting your hands dirty in the process of exposing by name or attributes what and who this elite is; which is perhaps why the “Occupy” movement was doomed to failure. An enemy that is deemed to be amorphous cannot be attacked. We cannot mount a defensive maneuver or defensive action without offending anyone!! We cannot launch a counter-attack and be afraid of being labeled by the enemy with every type of slanderous epithet! That is the same as measuring your own worth in terms of your enemy’s strength. WE WILL HAVE TO OFFEND SOME PEOPLE AT SOME POINT, MOST OF ALL THE CRIMINAL CULPRITS. If we cannot even agree on who these are, then we should stay home and continue to enjoy our slumber. Coming out with a vague depiction of the enemy as being all the super rich is nonsense and will take us nowhere.
The global control elite can be described in many ways, all of which bring us closer to a more accurate understanding of who these villains and enemies of humanity are. My book Our Godly Struggle frames the definition of this most vile enemy in its first chapter. It locates the definition within a historical religious and political framework. I truly believe that our present-day elite is not that different to the elite that faced Moses in Egypt, or Muhammad in Arabia or Jesus in Palestine. By framing the enemy appropriately, we are able to mobilize the full gamut of the human consciousness: religious, emotional and intellectual in defense of the oppressed. Any other type of vague and intellectually restricted framing of the identity of the enemy lays us bare to these villains’ using an escape argument, and a means of isolating us from each other.
