 +<html>
 +<p>1. What form of administrative rule can be given to
 +communities in which corruption has penetrated everywhere,
 +communities where riches are attained only by the clever surprise
 +tactics of semi-swindling tricks; where loseness reigns: where
 +morality is maintained by penal measures and harsh laws but not
 +by voluntarily accepted principles: where the feelings towards
 +faith and country are obligated by cosmopolitan convictions? What
 +form of rule is to be given to these communities if not that
 +despotism which I shall describe to you later? We shall create an
 +intensified centralization of government in order to grip in our
 +hands all the forces of the community. We shall regulate mechanically
 +all the actions of the political life of our subjects by new laws.
 +These laws will withdraw one by one all the indulgences and liberties
 +which have been permitted by the GOYIM, and our kingdom will be
 +distinguished by a despotism of such magnificent proportions as to
 +be at any moment and in every place in a position to wipe out any
 +GOYIM who oppose us by deed or word. </p>
 +<p>2. We shall be told that such a despotism as I speak of is not
 +consistent with the progress of these days, but I will prove to you
 +that it is. </p>
 +<p>3. In the times when the peoples looked upon kings on their
 +thrones as on a pure manifestation of the will of God, they submitted
 +without a murmur to the despotic power of kings: but from the day
 +when we insinuated into their minds the conception of their own
 +rights they began to regard the occupants of thrones as mere
 +ordinary mortals. The holy unction of the Lord's Anointed has fallen
 +from the heads of kings in the eyes of the people, and when we also
 +robbed them of their faith in God the might of power was flung upon
 +the streets into the place of public proprietorship and was seized
 +by us. </p>
 +<h3 align="center"><b>MASSES LED BY LIES</b></h3>
 +<p>4. Moreover, the art of directing masses and individuals
 +by means of cleverly manipulated theory and verbiage, by regulations
 +of life in common and all sorts of other quirks, in all which the
 +GOYIM understand nothing, belongs likewise to the specialists of our
 +administrative brain. Reared on analysis, observation, on delicacies
 +of fine calculation, in this species of skill we have no rivals, any
 +more than we have either in the drawing up of plans of political
 +actions and solidarity. In this respect the Jesuits alone might have
 +compared with us, but we have contrived to discredit them in the
 +eyes of the unthinking mob as an overt organization, while we
 +ourselves all the while have kept our secret organization in the
 +shade. However, it is probably all the same to the world who is its
 +sovereign lord, whether the head of Catholicism or our despot of the
 +blood of Zion! But to us, the Chosen People, it is very far from
 +being a matter of indifference. </p>
 +<p>5. FOR A TIME PERHAPS WE MIGHT BE SUCCESSFULLY DEALT WITH BY A
 +COALITION OF THE "GOYIM" OF ALL THE WORLD: but from this
 +danger we are secured by the discord existing among them whose roots
 +are so deeply seated that they can never now be plucked up. We have
 +set one against another the personal and national reckonings of the
 +GOYIM, religious and race hatreds, which we have fostered into a
 +huge growth in the course of the past twenty centuries. This is the
 +reason why there is not one State which would anywhere receive
 +support if it were to raise its arm, for every one of them must bear
 +in mind that any agreement against us would be unprofitable to
 +itself. We are too strong - there is no evading our power. THE
 +NATIONS CANNOT COME TO EVEN AN INCONSIDERABLE PRIVATE AGREEMENT
 +WITHOUT OUR SECRETLY HAVING A HAND IN IT. </p>
 +<p>6. PER ME REGES REGNANT. <i>"It is through me that Kings
 +reign."</i> And it was said by the prophets that we were chosen
 +by God Himself to rule over the whole earth. God has endowed us with
 +genius that we may be equal to our task. Were genius in the opposite
 +camp it would still struggle against us, but even so, a newcomer is
 +no match for the old-established settler: the struggle would be
 +merciless between us, such a fight as the world has never seen. Aye,
 +and the genius on their side would have arrived too late. All the
 +wheels of the machinery of all States go by the force of the engine,
 +which is in our hands, and that engine of the machinery of States is
 +- Gold. The science of political economy invented by our learned
 +elders has for long past been giving royal prestige to capital.</p>
 +<h3 align="center"><b>MONOPOLY CAPITAL</b></h3>
 +<p>7. Capital, if it is to co-operate untrammeled, must
 +be free to establish a monopoly of industry and trade: this is
 +already being put in execution by an unseen hand in all quarters
 +of the world. This freedom will give political force to those
 +engaged in industry, and that will help to oppress the people.
 +Nowadays it is more important to disarm the peoples than to lead
 +them into war: more important to use for our advantage the
 +passions which have burst into flames than to quench their fire:
 +more important to eradicate them. THE PRINCIPLE OBJECT OF OUR
 +DIRECTORATE CONSISTS IN THIS: TO DEBILITATE THE PUBLIC MIND BY
 +CRITICISM; TO LEAD IT AWAY FROM SERIOUS REFLECTIONS CALCULATED TO
 +AROUSE RESISTANCE; TO DISTRACT THE FORCES OF THE MIND TOWARDS A
 +SHAM FIGHT OF EMPTY ELOQUENCE. </p>
 +<p>8. In all ages the people of the world, equally with individuals,
 +have accepted words for deeds, for THEY ARE CONTENT WITH A SHOW and
 +rarely pause to note, in the public arena, whether promises are
 +followed by performance. Therefore we shall establish show
 +institutions which will give eloquent proof of their benefit to
 +progress. </p>
 +<p>9. We shall assume to ourselves the liberal physiognomy of all
 +parties, of all directions, and we shall give that physiognomy a
 +VOICE IN ORATORS WHO WILL SPEAK SO MUCH THAT THEY WILL EXHAUST THE
 +PATIENCE OF THEIR HEARERS AND PRODUCE AN ABHORRENCE OF ORATORY. </p>
 +<p>10. IN ORDER TO PUT PUBLIC OPINION INTO OUR HANDS WE MUST BRING IT
 +INTO A STATE OF BEWILDERMENT BY GIVING EXPRESSION FROM ALL SIDES TO
 +SO MANY CONTRADICTORY OPINIONS AND FOR SUCH LENGTH OF TIME AS WILL
 +SUFFICE TO MAKE THE <i>"GOYIM"</i> LOSE THEIR HEADS IN THE
 +LABYRINTH AND COME TO SEE THAT THE BEST THING IS TO HAVE NO OPINION
 +OF ANY KIND IN MATTERS POLITICAL, which it is not given to the
 +public to understand, because they are understood only by him who
 +guides the public. This is the first secret. </p>
 +<p>11. The second secret requisite for the success of our government
 +is comprised in the following: To multiply to such an extent
 +national failings, habits, passions, conditions of civil life, that
 +it will be impossible for anyone to know where he is in the resulting
 +chaos, so that the people in consequence will fail to understand one
 +another. This measure will also serve us in another way, namely, to
 +sow discord in all parties, to dislocate all collective forces which
 +are still unwilling to submit to us, and to discourage any kind of
 +personal initiative which might in any degree hinder our affair.
 +THERE IS NOTHING MORE DANGEROUS THAN PERSONAL INITIATIVE: if it has
 +genius behind it, such initiative can do more than can be done by
 +millions of people among whom we have sown discord. We must so direct
 +the education of the GOYIM communities that whenever they come upon a
 +matter requiring initiative they may drop their hands in despairing
 +impotence. The strain which results from freedom of actions saps the
 +forces when it meets with the freedom of another. From this
 +collision arise grave moral shocks, disenchantments, failures. BY
 +ALL THESE MEANS WE SHALL SO WEAR DOWN THE "GOYIM" THAT
 +THEY WILL BE COMPELLED TO OFFER US INTERNATIONAL POWER OF A NATURE
 +THAT BY ITS POSITION WILL ENABLE US WITHOUT ANY VIOLENCE GRADUALLY
 +TO ABSORB ALL THE STATE FORCES OF THE WORLD AND TO FORM A
 +SUPER-GOVERNMENT. In place of the rulers of to-day we shall set up
 +a bogey which will be called the Super-Government Administration.
 +Its hands will reach out in all directions like nippers and its
 +organization will be of such colossal dimensions that it cannot
 +fail to subdue all the nations of the world. (League of Nations and
 +subsequent United Nations Organization - Ed.).</p>
