Never Trust A Rhodes Scholar...or anyone married to one!

In 1891, gold and diamond magnate Cecil Rhodes formed a secret society, the "Society of the Elect", to "absorb the wealth of the world" and "to take the government of the whole world", according to Rhodes. According to Prof. Carroll Quigley, Bill Clinton's mentor at Georgetown University, in The Anglo-American Establishment, Rhodes' conspiratorial secret society lasted almost 60 years. By that time, enough members of the society and Rhodes Scholars had penetrated the areas of politics, economics, journalism and education, so that the society was simply replaced by a network of power elite, who would openly pursue world government.

According to Quigley:

"The [Rhodes] scholarships were merely a fa├žade to conceal the secret society, or, more accurately, they were to be one of the instruments by which members of the secret society could carry out Rhodes' purpose."

And in case anyone doubts the credibility of Prof. Quigley regarding this matter, The Washington Post article (March 23, 1975) about him and his information obtained from the power elite's "secret records" was titled "The Professor Who Knew Too Much."

Cecil Rhodes' secret society was comprised of a small "Circle of Initiates" and a larger semi-secret "Association of Helpers" which formed Round Table Groups. Members of these groups along with members of the Fabian (Socialist) Society as well as "The Inquiry" (a group formed by President Woodrow Wilson's chief advisor, Col. Edward M. House) formed the Royal Institute of International Affairs in Great Britain, and its American branch, the CFR. Both Prof. Quigley in Tragedy and Hope and CFR member Arthur Schlesinger, Jr. in A Thousand Days have referred to the CFR as a "front" for the power elite. And in Men and Powers, former West Germany chancellor Helmut Schmidt referred to the CFR as "the foreign policy elite," which prepared people for "top-level missions" in government and "other centers of international policy" and "had very silent but effective ways of seeing to its own succession."

Members of Rhodes' secret society networked with Fabian Socialists, who established the London School of Economics in 1895. One early Fabian, H.G. Wells, in New Worlds for Old explained what he called "a plot," whereby heads of state would come and go, but bureaucrats trained at the London School of Economics, for example, would remain in government making rules and regulations furthering the goals of the Fabian Socialists.

Wells broke with the Fabians, not in terms of goals, but only in believing they should be open about them, as he explained the coming synthesis of western capitalism and eastern communism into a world socialist government. In this regard, he authored The Open Conspiracy: Blue Prints for a World Revolution (1928) and The New World Order (1939), in which he said sovereign states (nations) would end and "countless people... will hate the new world order... and will die protesting against it."

The power elite understood that it would be difficult to get the people of the world to accept a world government all at once, and so a gradualistic approach was suggested. Association of Helpers member and Canadian Rhodes scholar P.E. Corbett in Post-War Worlds (1942) wrote:
 "A world association binding together and coordinating regional groupings of states may evolve toward one universal federal government... World government is the ultimate aim, but there is more chance of attaining it by gradual development."

Sleep...within reach!

When I was asked why I wrote this, this was my reply:
" In the words of Anthony Scalia, "I hate to write but I love having written." "

Sleep...within reach!

Have you ever wondered about how you sleep…or better yet can you remember at what point you fell asleep last night?  Personally, I’ve had many experiences falling asleep; from the instant crash from being tired to the hum-drum lackadaisical mind wondering nothingness to the fantasy world of wishful thinking you know will never happen.  The tossing and turning on the other hand, I think, is shared by most of us at one time or another. 
It’s not usually the  subject of conversation but sleep is something we all need else we will be subject to its consequences; mental abilities, mood swings, decision making and your entire creative processes…even your eating habits!  Well I’m not going to get into any of those progressions for the thought occurred to me that after reading a segment of early American literature that the process of falling asleep hasn’t changed at all for us humans. 

One of America’s first fiction writers, Charles Brockden Brown[1], has one of his title characters, Edgar Huntley[2], describes every detail about sleep:

I have said that I slept.  My memory assures me of this; it informs me of the previous circumstances of laying aside my clothes, of placing the light upon a chair within reach of my pillow, of throwing myself upon the bed and of gazing on the rays of the moon reflected on the wall and almost obscured by those of the candle.  I remember my occasional relapse into fits of incoherent fancies, the harbingers of sleep.  I remember, as it were, the instant when my thought ceased to flow and my senses were arrested by the wand of forgetfulness
I remember as a child the light of passing cars reflecting on the wall which fits right in with Edgar’s moon rays and his incoherent fancies correlates to my fantasy world but the one thing I didn’t have was the light on the chair.  The light in that upstairs bedroom had a string attached to the on/off chain which in an earlier period in my life had to be extended with a longer string attached to the top of the brass bed frame…within reach of my fearless self.  For you see when I was much younger (before the lengthening of the string) I was slightly afraid of the dark and my older brother would tell me that I would have to pull the string to shut off the light and jump in bed before the light went out.  Well I don’t remember how many nights I went through this ritual of attempting the speed of light and it was some time after big brother added the extension that I outgrew the nyctophobia but the extension remained as Edgar would say, “Within reach.”
