Capital must protect itself… (1924)

There is a great article conspiracy v Conspiracy in American History on a blog in the spirit of Thomas Paine. It refers to a ruling elite of some 6000 individuals who feed into the unconscious myths of the American psyche.

At the same time, there are a few conscious plans by key organisations. Some of them cross more than one generation – such as this one:

“Capital must protect itself in every possible way, both by combination and legislation. Debts must be collected, mortgages foreclosed as rapidly as possible. When, through the process of law, the common people lose their homes, they will become more docile and more easily governed through the strong arm of government applied by a central power of wealth under leading financiers. These truths are well known among our principal men who are now engaged in forming an imperialism to govern the world. By dividing the voter through the political party system, we can get them to expend their energies in fighting for questions of no importance. It is thus by discreet action we can secure for ourselves that which has been so well planned and so successfully accomplished.”

  1. Linking cross-border terrorism with vote bank politics, BJP national president Nitin Gadkari has alleged that the country’s security is not safe with the Congress in power. Addressing a rally in the state capital that was attended by BJP workers, Gadkari criticised the Congress calling itself as a secular party.

    He said “We are against vote bank politics. In Assam, the government has welcomed migrants from Bangladesh and is encouraging them to register themselves as voters. The government is weak in its effort to stop cross-border infiltration. And Afzal Guru is yet to be hanged. The government is scared; if they hang him, their own vote bank will be shaken”. In a country where there are so many religions form as Indians, but however, a criminal is a criminal, a terrorist is a terrorist. And should be punishsed at any cost.

    So, what do you think people, Is Vote bank politics protecting terrorists in India?? Or there are any other reasons people?
