America's Great Depression America's Great Depression

America's Great Depression America's Great Depression

America's Great Depression is the classic treatise on the 1930s Great Depression and its root causes. Author Rothbard blames government interventionist policies for magnifying the duration, breadth, and intensity of the Great Depression. He explains how government manipulation of the money supply sets the stage for the familiar "boom-bust" phases of the modern market which we know all too well. He then details the inflationary policies of the Federal Reserve from 1921 to 1929 as evidence that the depression was essentially caused not by speculation, but by government and central bank interference in the market. Clearly we find history tragically repeating itself today. A must-read.

The Triumph of Conservatism The Triumph of Conservatism: A Reinterpretation of American History, 1900-1916

The Triumph of Conservatism: A Reinterpretation of American History, 1900-1916 The Triumph of Conservatism

From the birth of Democracy in Athens, the true battle has been between the philosophy of Draco and the philosophy of Solon, philosophies of constancy and progression, respectively. In our time we call them Conservative and Liberal, and each sees the other as evil and a danger to Democracy. This book is a reinterpretation of the so-called "Progressive Era" under the presidencies of Teddy Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson, with the relatively draconian presidency of William Taft in between.

The Evolution of Civilizations The Evolution of Civilizations

The Evolution of Civilizations The Evolution of Civilizations

Carroll Quigley was a legendary teacher at the Georgetown School of Foreign Service. His course on the history of civilization was extraordinary in its scope and in its impact on his students.

Like the course, The Evolution of Civilizations is a comprehensive and perceptive look at the factors behind the rise and fall of civilizations.

Quigley defines a civilization as "a producing society with an instrument of expansion." A civilization's decline is not inevitable but occurs when its instrument of expansion is transformed into an institution—that is, when social arrangements that meet real social needs are transformed into social institutions serving their own purposes regardless of real social needs.

Secret Societies: A History Secret Societies by Arkon Daraul

Secret Societies by Arkon Daraul Secret Societies: A History

Customer Review:

I've owned Daraul's book for years. The point of this book I believe is twofold.

First it serves as an excellent introduction to the history and concept of secret societies. This might put off the mavens of the current reign of conspiracy theorists. But it is quite successful and interesting as an introduction. In other words it is an excellent starting point, especially for some of the most obscure cults like the skoptsys of Russia.

Secondly I believe that there is an underlying structure to the book in finding connections between so many of these secret groups. Clearly there is a gnostic underground represented among them.

Now if someone is looking for the kind of global conspiracy represented by folks like Icke, Marrs and Jones this is not the book for you. It takes a more objective approach. It is neither an apologia for these cults nor a demonization of same. In short it is simply a good informative book to begin to research a truly arcane area of thought. For those deeply immersed in the notion of secret societies and Illuminati conspiracies this book won't really be what you are looking for.

The Rise Of the House Of Rothschild The Rise Of the House Of Rothschild

The Rise Of the House Of Rothschild The Rise Of the House Of Rothschild

The object of this volume, which deals with the period 1770-1830, is to trace the rise of The House of Rothschild from its small beginnings to the great position it attained, culminating in the year of its great crisis.

The House of Rothschild, as will be readily understood, did not throw open its archives to the author's inspection, for it is particularly careful in guarding its more important business secrets. But this was not entirely without its advantage, for it left the Count Corti completely free from political considerations and uninfluenced by racial, national, and religious predilections or antipathies. The Count was enabled to begin an independent historical research into the part played by this House in the nineteenth century, which was known to be far more important than was commonly thought.

The general scheme of this work was built upon facts alone, in a practical way such as will help us to form our own judgment on individuals and the part they played in world events.

Protocols Decision Washed Out



February 1938

(Retrieved from



Press and Radio Silent on Appeal Finding

Great publicity was given throughout the world in 1935 to a decision in the Swiss Courts that the documents known as The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion were a forgery; that the judge had described the contents as "ridiculous nonsense"; and that the Protocols had been condemned as an offence against public morals.

Even in remote New Zealand numerous newspapers at that time published long articles on what they termed an "Historic Forgery"; and addresses were similarly given over the radio system proclaiming loudly that the Protocols had been shown to be baseless.

We are now at the end of February, 1938, but the writer can recall nothing in the daily papers, and he has heard nothing over the radio system, telling him that the Protocols verdict given on May 14, 1935, was reversed by the Berne Court of Appeal on November 1 last.

When the decision went one way it was news fit for all the world to hear: a subject for special articles and radio broadcasts. When it went the other way it ceased to be news at all.

What the Protocols Are

To those unfamiliar with them it may be explained that the Protocols were first published in English in 1920 by Messrs. Eyre and Spottiswoode, long printers to the British Government. They attracted very considerable attention, and the London "Times," in reviewing them in a lengthy article on May 3, 1920, stated that its representative had inspected in the British Museum an edition of the Protocols published in Russia by Professor Sergius Nilus in 1905, and bearing the Museum's date stamp of receipt of August 10, 1906.

The "Times" attached importance to this positive evidence of the existence of the Protocols in 1906, because the Protocols contain a programme for the conquest of the world by subterfuge, and of this programme, world events from 1906 to 1920 were a fulfilment. That is the whole significance of the Protocols. The plan contained in them goes on getting itself fulfilled.

If the Protocols were considered significant in 1920 because of the course of world events between 1906 and 1920, the course of events between 1920 and 1938 makes them immensely more significant to-day.

Depression and Revolution

Look back on the world depression of 1929-1934, and consider the following few words from Protocol No. 3:

"We shall create by all the secret subterranean methods open to us and with the aid of gold, which is all in our hands, a universal economic crisis whereby we shall throw upon the streets whole mobs of workers simultaneously in all the countries of Europe."

Consider the interconnections of international finance and international revolution in the light of this passage from the same Protocol:

"We appear on the scene as alleged saviours of the worker from this oppression (of capitalism) when we propose to him to enter the ranks of our fighting forces-Socialists, Anarchists, Communists - to whom we always give support in accordance with an alleged brotherly rule (of the solidarity of all humanity) of our social masonry . . . By want and envy and hatred which it engenders we shall move the mobs and with their hands wipe out all who hinder us on our way. When the hour comes for our Sovereign Lord of all the world to be crowned it will be these same hands that will sweep away everything which might be a hindrance thereto."

Deadly Forecasts

The thirty thousand words of these 24 Protocols constitute one of the most remarkable documents in all history. In Henry Ford's "Dearborn Independent" of July 24, 1920, it was said: "Nothing like them in completeness of detail; in breadth of plan, and in deep grasp of the hidden springs of human action has ever been known. . . what is written in the Protocols in words is also written upon the life of to-day in deeds and tendencies."

The late Lord Sydenham, formerly Governor of Victoria and Governor of Bombay, and member of the Committee which reconstructed the British War Office, in a letter to the London "Spectator" of August 27, 1921, referred to "the deadly accuracy of the forecasts in the Protocols, most of which have been fulfilled to the letter"; and said their most striking characteristic was "knowledge of a rare kinds embracing the widest fields,"

Where They Came From

The origin of the Protocols is a mystery. They came by way of Russia. It is asserted that they reached Russia from Paris, being forwarded by an agent of the Tsarist secret service; but of this there is no positive proof. Professor Sergius Nilus who published them in Russia was described by the London "Times" as a minor official in the Russian Foreign Office. He wrote a book entitled "The Great in Little" and in a second edition of this book in 1905 he printed the Protocols, saying they had come from a friend since deceased, with the assurance that they were a true translation of documents stolen by a woman from a highly initiated Jewish Freemason in France.

Nilus brought out the Protocols again in 1917, entitled "It is Here: At the Gates". This edition is said to have been suppressed by the Kerensky Government; and it has been asserted that the Bolsheviks later shot at sight anybody found in possession of a copy.

Forgery Alleged

A German translation was made in 1919, and since then the Protocols have been translated into almost every language. Numerous Jews have taken the strongest exception to the publication of the Protocols: and have repeatedly denounced them as useless forgeries.

The late Mr. Lucien Wolf, an eminent Jewish journalist, in a long letter to the London "Spectator" of June 12, 1920, said the Protocols were plagiarised from, a novel "Gaeta Duppel Warsaw," published in 1868.

In August, 1921, the London "Times" published a series of articles from its Constantinople correspondent saying he had been shown by an unnamed "Mr. X." a copy of a book by Maurice Joly called "Dialogue in Hell, between Montesquieu and Macchiavelli," published in 1865, with several passages almost identical with passages in the Protocols, and that this Mr. X. had obtained the book from an old officer of the Tsarist secret police; and that apparently the Protocols were plagiarised from this very copy. Nilus got his copy from Alexis Sukhotin, and there as stated to be "A.S." scratched in the back of the book. No names were given in the persons making the statements.

Wrapped in Mystery

These London "Times" articles are the "proof" advanced everywhere that the Protocols are a baseless forgery, Mrs. L. Fry in her book "Waters Flowing Eastward" (1933) points out that there is another book entitled "Macchiavelli, Montesquieu, and Rousseau," by Jacob Venedy, published in 1850, which has similar passages to those in Joly's book, and in the Protocols. Jacob Venedy was a Jewish revolutionary. It has been asserted in various quarters that Joly was also a Jew, though this was disputed at Berne. Joly was closely associated with the Jews Cremieux and Janin.

The plain fact of the matter is that nobody knows who wrote the Protocols. Many similarities between them and earlier documents can be discovered, included in the number being passages in the Talmud. Their interest and significance is in their fulfilment. They are either a plan or else a very accurate and curious prophecy. Nobody even knows who gave them their name. They are a formless production, and the Ford "Dearborn Independent" in commenting on them said they seemed as if they were most probably notes taken during a series of lectures. If such was the case, the lectures were not propaganda, but an exposition of a plan to an audience which had already accepted it in principle.

Berne Prosecution Begins

The famous Berne trial, the decision in which has been reversed, was a prosecution begun in June, 1933, of certain members of Swiss national and anti-Jewish movements charged with selling copies of the Protocols, which were alleged to be in contravention of article 14 of the Berne Cantonal law forbidding the circulation of matter likely to incite to crime, lead to immorality, shock the sense of decency, or provoke to depravity in any manner whatsoever. The action was brought by the United Jewish Communities of Switzerland and the Jewish Synagogue of Berne. It came before a Magistrate, Judge Meyer.

After various adjournments, the Court permitted the case to be enlarged by the complainants from a simple police court action into a question of the history and authenticity of the Protocols. On October 29 and 30, 1934, the Court heard an array of 16 witnesses for the plaintiffs affirming that the Protocols were a forgery. Chief among these witnesses were Dr. Chaim Weizmann, president of the World Zionist Organisation and the Jewish World Agency, and Dr. Ehrenpries, chief rabbi of Sweden. A part of the evidence was in rebuttal of a suggestion or allegation that the Protocols emanated from those concerned in the first Zionist Congress in 1897; but the whole, question of origin was also traversed.

Defence Allowed No Witnesses

The defendants, with this heavy artillery brought against them, secured an adjournment to enable them to bring material in reply. Various anti-Jewish bodies rallied to the support of the defendants.

Three experts were appointed by the Court to report as to the authenticity of the documents. One, M. Loosli, was appointed by the magistrate, Professor Baumgarten was nominated by the plaintiffs, and Lieut-Col. Fleischauer by the defendants.

The defendants in November, 1934, nominated 40 witnesses whom they wished to call, but on March 26, 1935, Judge Meyer informed their expert Col. Fleischaver that he would rule out any motion to summon more witnesses.

On April 15 Dr. Ruef, counsel for defendants, applied for permission to bring actions for perjury against ten of the sixteen witnesses on the Jewish side. In May this application was also refused by the examining magistrate and the Public Prosecutor's Department, the ground being that these witnesses had "merely given expression to their personal opinion and judgment". The defendants protested in vain that it was not expressions of opinion but statements of fact by the witnesses that they challenged.

At this stage it further came out that although the Swiss law requires depositions to be taken of all evidence and signed by the witnesses, this had not been done when the Jewish witnesses gave evidence in the preceding October, and the only record of their evidence was unsigned notes taken by their lawyer. There was thus no legal record of the Jewish evidence on which to base a prosecution for perjury. Nevertheless, this evidence was accepted as valid by the Magistrate in giving his decision.

The Magistrate's Decision

After hearing argument by the three experts, Judge Meyer gave his decision. This was that three of the defendants were acquitted, and the fourth was fined 20 francs for circulating literature in contravention of article 14 of the Bernese Cantonal law respecting indecent and immoral literature, This defendant was also ordered to bear 10,000 francs costs. Another defendant was fined 50 francs and 18,000 francs costs, for selling a pamphlet (not containing the Protocols). The heavy costs represented mainly the expense of bringing the Jewish witnesses from abroad to testify.

With respect to the authenticity of the Protocols, Judge Meyer said: "The defendants had been unable to prove that the Protocols of the Elders of Lion were a genuine document." As to the origin of the Protocols, Judge Meyer said: "The Protocols are a forgery; they were forged by General Katchkowsky."

This was the case advanced by Professor Baumgarten, the Jewish expert. It rested largely on a statement made by Princess Catherine Radziwill in an American Jewish paper in 1921. She had asserted that in 1905, after the Russo-Japanese war, Golinsky, an official in the employ of General Katchkowsky, head of the Russian secret police in Paris, showed her a copy of the Protocols, which had just been completed.

The defendants contended that this was not possible as Golinsky had not been in Paris after 1900, and General Ratckowsky had left Paris in 1902. Further, they contended that Princess Radziwill (daughter of M. Blanc, founder of the Monte Carlo Casino) was not a person of the highest reliability, having been sentenced in London to two years' imprisonment for forgery in 1902, and arrested in New York in 1921 on a charge of defrauding a hotel and also prosecuted by another hotel.

Irregularities Alleged

Notice of appeal against the verdict was given by the defendants. They and their supporters expressed great dissatisfaction with the conduct of the case. They contended, in the first place, that Judge Meyer, being a Marxian Socialist and having other attributes favourable to Jewry, was not a suitable judge for such a case.

They objected to the refusal to hear their witnesses in rebuttal of the plaintiff's evidence, and also to the blocking of their action for perjury, these two decisions completely preventing any presentation of evidence for their side.

They commented strongly on Jewish foreknowledge of the decisions given by the Court. On February 25 the London "Jewish Daily Post" in a message from Switzerland stated that the Court had decided to hear no more witnesses. Judge Meyer's minute to this effect was not made until February 27, and was not communicated to the defence until March 26; yet the correspondent of a Jewish newspaper had correct information on the point to send a telegram away on February 24.

Advance Knowledge

Similarly, although the Court's decision was not given until May 14, the "Jewish Daily Post," in commenting on the case, said on April 28: "It is much more a question of taking note of the charges than refuting them. The matter is already settled . . . The important thing now is to give the refutation as wide a publicity as possible. This case is a proof of what can be done with good Jewish organization." examiner.htm


On November 1st, 1937 the high court of the Canton of Berne, Switzerland, ruled that the Protocols of the Wise Men of Zion do not constitute immoral literature in that sense that circulation of the documents calls for punishment. The conviction in the lower court of two anti-Semites, Silvio Schnell and Theodore Fischer, accused of circulating the documents, was reversed. They were convicted after a seventeen-day trial which ended in May of 1935, at which the presiding judge ruled that the "Protocols of the Elders of Zion" purporting to reveal Jewish plans for domination of the world "are forgeries and immoral literature."

The two defendents were entirely exonerated of any incorrect behavior in publishing and circulating Protocols, although all parties to the suit had to pay their own costs. This is a distinct loss for the Jews of the world, who had built a clever defense for themselves out of the first pro-Semitic verdict.(The New Liberation, Volume VIII, November 7, 1937).

Personal Position

Personal Position:
I've come to realize that 'truth' boils down to what we 'believe' the facts we've gathered point to. We only 'know' what we've 'experienced' firsthand. Everything else - what we read, what we watch, what we hear - is what someone else's gathered facts point to and 'they' 'believe' is 'truth', so that 'truth' seems to change in direct proportion to newly gathered facts divided by applied plausibility. Though I believe there is 'truth', until someone representing the celestial realm visibly appears and presents the heavenly records of Facts And Lies In The Order They Happened, I can't know for sure exactly what "the whole truth' on any given subject is, and what applies to me applies to everyone. Until then I'll continue to ask, "what does The Urantia Book say on the subject?"
