The Invisible Civil War Within: Part IV

Cheney vs. Rockefeller vs. Secret Banker vs. You?

First, let's take a step back. In fact, let's start with a little bit of philosopher fun...

This is the part of the story where it sometimes starts getting hard for me to ferret out truth from chicanery and fact from hearsay. There is a lot of proof out there for several contradicting views and they can't ALL be true.

I should be honest and say there are irrational influences antagonizing my confidence in these matters. First, I don't like to be embarrassed. I don't like the idea of being considered a whack job or an easily fooled shill. The specter of terms like "tin foil hat wearer" and conspiracy nut attached to me sometimes keep me from asserting my real suspicions. Also, my upbringing and environment was to assume someone was "screwing us over" or "out to get us" whenever things went wrong and that the government and big companies were assumed to always be doing so. I've seen evidence of myself and others holding on to these assumptions when it should have been clear our own behavior or circumstances were a factor that could have changed the outcome. It is always easier to blame things on others. Also, it is easier to cave in to fatalism or paranoia than confront difficult situations. So I temper my view in light of these irrationalities and I am slower than many in subscribing to viewpoints that are not only well documented but, for me, must be somehow personally corroborated. When it comes to ferreting out this Divide and Conquer phenomenon, I am tough to convince.

With that in mind, let's look at some of these groups propounding the Hegelian Dialectic as a mode of distracting/controlling and gaining power.

The Conservative Protestant View of Hegel

I am going to start with a web site called Bible Believers from Australia, but before I do I want to request that our readership which hold certain animosities towards fundamentalism/evangelism to withhold their usual negative assertions for the time being. Trust me, I know where you stand and I am not endorsing a particular view I present here unless I explicitly say so.

Their web page Hegelian Dialectics and Conspiracy ranks very high on the Google search for such things. In this view, a group of bankers uses their financial clout to elicit certain responses. Well, I will let them summarize for themselves:

There is a relationship between Finance, Centralization, and World Hegemony. Until the outbreak of the First World War, money appeared to be a mere mechanism. But the arrangements made to finance the war reveal that the money system was in fact the vehicle of a POLICY, and that that policy was the CENTRALIZATION of power leading progressively to World Government. Prior to the outbreak of war, Great Britain was the CENTRE (but not the BEING) of world financial control; with the war, financial control was transferred to New York and from there used to dismantle the British Empire which, by reason of British traditions and the Anglo-Saxon character, had been the great barrier to World Dominion by those operating through the world financial system. The fall of the British Empire was a FINANCIAL accomplishment, not a military one. But the terms of 'peace' imposed on 'victorious' Britain are those which might have been expected following military DEFEAT.

But the Power which emerged into the open in this century had its birth long before that. It was incubated (but not conceived) in the Secret Societies of Europe, appeared briefly in the French Revolution, and spread to Britain in the form of Fabianism, and to America in the form of various Socialist societies. Following the first phase of the war, it openly took over Russia, and since has visibly spread as International Communism until it has taken over the greater part of the globe.

There are a number of interesting charts on the page which I encourage you to check out which delineate various thesis/antithesis tensions and the "synthesis" which they were "designed" to achieve. Ironically, even though socialism/communism was being used to counterpoint capitalism, the author(s) of the page seem to take the point of view that the "synthesis" of this dialectic runs towards creating a socialist/communist state. Why go through the charade of doing all this extra stuff to achieve that? They don't say. This page also doesn't name names of "The Globalists" who are perpetrating this or why.

Alex Jones' Prison Planet

Thankfully, they don't need to because (thanks Dave!) Alex Jones does this for us. Jones talks about the underpinnings of the elites and their process of taking power. Here is part 1 of a several part video which Dave was kind enough to introduce to us.

According to Jones, it turns out that there are families like the Rothschilds, Rockefellers and others who are among these elites. Jones may be right, BUT there are some major problems with his mode of presentation. First of all, the site is LOADED with advertising for various items related to his pronouncements of doom. He is likely making a small fortune off of this and his livelihood depends on people believing his claims. He is not going to jeopardize profits if one or another of his claims turned out not to be true. At that point, the claims of the "authorities shutting him down" etc. are trumpeted on his site. If the authorities wanted him shut down, it would take them about 2 minutes to do it, if that, so I know he is backpedaling when this happens.

Also, he likes to go out and film these "elites" being nefarious. He asks pointed questions and he sometimes is roughly escorted from their proximity. If I were rich and someone seemed to be asking angry questions about my motives, my security staff would act the same way. My belief is that Jones does this to create a "reality show" type of excitement to keep viewers coming to his site. Evidence gathering and muck raking is a great journalistic tradition and a public service, but this kind of "faux confrontation" that Jones basically appropriated from local news broadcasts and their "consumer protection" stories doesn't cast much light on the real story so much as it shows how people react when surprised; which is usually to put off the surpriser as quickly as possible.

With all that said, some of Jones' claims can be verified by checking other sources and he acts as a clearinghouse for several different things happening on the fringes which won't become generally accepted fact for years to come. It is a process of separating the wheat from the chaff.

Well, that is enough for now. This thing is getting longer than I anticipated (as in it could be well over 10 parts if I let it), so I will leave the Hegelian Dialectic alone for a while to save time and words until I need it again.

In the next installment, we will look at some of these "elites" and hopefully get closer to the truth of whether powerful influencers have a disproportionate control of our governments and lives and which people are accused of doing so.

The link only goes to the home page. I can't find the Hegelian dialectics article. Could you update the link, please...or at least point me in the right direction?

Fixed it. Sorry.

I think it’s like a Football blame were they refs are unfairly helping one side but unexpected things can still happen.

Dean Wormer said...

They don't say. This page also doesn't name names of "The Globalists" who are perpetrating this or why.

Foreigners. Especially non-caucasian foreigners.

It's the Scots.

The Moody Minstrel said...

You know...that Monty Python clip really kind of reminds of...

Nope, I shouldn't say it.

Certainly interesting points about Jone's theories and actions. But I have read the same thing from several different sources. In all likelyhood, the conspiracy has been traversing the planet in various forms for years. However, due to recent media coverage, the Bildebergers are no longer the big secret they once were.

If you follow the path of nine eleven truthers and Alex Jones, you're going to get an earful of things that just don't make rational sense. A conspiracy by its nature is not rational.

Two final thoughts. Don't believe everything you hear or see. Follow the money.
