Wesman Todd Shaw listens apprehensively when people talk about a new world order.
While it is certainly true that any quote can be taken out of context and misrepresented, it is also true that a quote can and will reveal a lot more than the speaker ever intended. These quotes reveal that some people, including well-known people, think they are well qualified to control the lives of others. As St. Francis de Sales said, "It is an act of charity to cry out against the wolf when he is among the sheep."
Is There a Group Secretly Running Everything?
1. "The real truth of the matter is, as you and I know, that a financial element in the large centers has owned the government ever since the days of Andrew Jackson."
—Franklin D. Roosevelt
2. "Let me issue and control a Nation's money, and I care not who writes the laws."
—Mayer Amschel Rothschild
3. "The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary."
4. "We are on the verge of a global transformation. All we need is the right major crisis and the Nations will accept the New World Order!"
5. "It doesn't matter what is true, it only matters what people believe is true. You are what the media define you to be. [Greenpeace] became a myth, and a myth-generating machine."

"New World Order" Said With a Straight Face
George H.W. Bush, in the video below, appears to be high on drugs while announcing global government plans to the entire world.
The Invisible Government Within the Gates
Because as Cicero said, "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious, but it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and he carries his banners openly. But the traitor moves among those within the gate freely."
1. "The real rulers in Washington are invisible and exercise power from behind the scenes"
—Felix Frankfurter, Justice of the Supreme Court
2. "The real menace of our republic is the invisible government which, like a giant octopus, sprawls it's slimy length over our city, state, and nation. At the head is a small group of Banking houses generally referred to as "International Bankers." This little coterie virtually runs our government for their own selfish ends."
—John F. Hylan, mayor of New York City, 1922
3. "We can have democracy in this country or we can have great wealth concentrated in the hands of a few, but we cannot have both."
—Louis D. Brandeis, former Supreme Court Justice
4. "Military men are dumb, stupid animals to be used as pawns for foreign policy."

Some Are More Equal Than Others
1. "In war, they will kill some of us, we shall destroy all of them." Thomas Jefferson, speaking of the Native Americans
2. "Kill every buffalo you can, for every buffalo dead is an Indian gone."
—Colonel R.I. Dodge, Fort Mcphereson, 1867
3. "[Blacks] are beings of an inferior order, and altogether unfit to associate with the white race, either in social or political relations, and so far inferior that they had no rights which the white man was bound to respect."
—Scott v Sanford, US Supreme Court, March 6, 1857
4. "They didn't have any rights to the land, and there was no reason for anyone to grant them rights which they had not conceived and were not using... What was it that they were fighting for, when they opposed white men on this continent? For their wish to continue a primitive existence, their 'right' to keep part of the earth untouched, unused, and not even as property, but just keep everybody out so that you will live practically like an animal, or a few caves above it. Any white person who brings the element of civilization has the right to take over this continent."
—Ayn Rand, addressing the West Point Cadets, when asked about the United States dispossession and genocide of Indians, March 6, 1974
5. "Even a woman is good and so is a slave, although it may be said that a woman is an inferior thing and a slave beneath consideration." Aristotle
6. "Advanced forms of biological warfare that can 'target' specific genotypes may transform biological warfare from the realm of terror to a politically useful tool."
—Project for a New American Century, "Rebuilding America's Defenses," p. 60.
Those skilled in war subdue the enemy's army without battle.
— Sun Tzu, "The Art of War"
Might Makes Right
1. "A small or moderate explosive charge is highly unreliable as a cause of death, and time delay or booby-trap devices are extremely prone to kill the wrong man. In addition to the moral aspects of indiscriminate killing, the death of casual bystanders can often produce public reactions unfavorable to the cause for which the assassination is carried out. Bombs or grenades should never be thrown at a subject. While this will always cause a commotion and may even result in the subject's death, it is sloppy, unreliable, and bad propaganda...."
—A Study of Assassination: A CIA Manual
2. "It is better to be more feared than loved. You can lead by the force of high moral example. It has been done. But it's risky, because people are fickle, and they will abandon you at the first sign of failure. Fear is much more reliable, and lasts longer. Once you show that you are capable of dealing out terrible punishments to your enemies, your power will be far greater."
—Michael Leedon, from "Machiavelli on Our War: Some Advice for Our Leaders" (to the current Bush Administration)
3. "We make war that we may live in peace."
4. "We are going to fight them and impose our will on them and we will capture or... kill them until we have imposed law and order on this country. We dominate the scene and we will continue to impose our will on this country."
—Paul Bremer, U.S. Administrator of occupied Iraq
5. "We'll do everything we can to remind people that we've never been a nation of conquerors; we're a nation of liberators."
—President George W. Bush, on Iraq
