Memory note no. 2 – what is 'Democracy' anyway?
‘Democracy is the recurrent suspicion that more than half of the people are right more than half of the time.’ – Elwyn Brooks White, in ‘The New Yorker’, 1943
‘Democracy substitutes election by the incompetent many for appointment by the corrupt few’ - George Bernard Shaw, Man and Superman, page 182, 1903
As I have explained, these Elite families have great control over western politics, and the UK is of course no exception. What they tend to do is make sure that they own and control all major candidates in elections. As this article explains, the Rothschild family have had great influence over politics for over 200 years now, and have enormous control of both Peter Mandelson (the real power of the Labour Party) and George Osborne of the Conservative Party – so they really can’t lose when it comes to elections. They also provided support for John McCain’s presidential campaign. The article from the Independent says:
‘Political donations from overseas are also illegal in the US, where John McCain's campaign team is under investigation for allegedly accepting a benefit in kind from two mega-rich British citizens, namely Nat Rothschild and his father, Jacob, the Fourth Baron Rothschild. In April, Mr McCain passed through London and spoke at a fund-raising dinner for expatriate Americans…What caught the eye of Judicial Watch, a Washington-based foundation dedicated to combating corruption, was that the event was held "by kind permission of Lord Rothschild and Hon Nathaniel Rothschild" at the family home in Spencer House, St James's’
Round Table agents backed and controlled Obama, McCain, and Sarah Palin (all of which have blue-blood connections to Europe) in the recent US Presidential Election – so you see, they couldn’t fail to get into power. They own all the horses in the race!
These super-powerful families then use the media, such as the BBC, ABC News, CBS, Fox News, etc, to only give favourable coverage to the candidates that they want to get into the final race for the presidency/premiership.
For example, in September of 2009, former director-general of the BBC, Greg Dyke, told a Liberal Democrat Party conference that there is a ‘conspiracy’ between the BBC and the UK Government in Westminster. He said major changes he had wanted to make to the BBC's coverage of politics when he was director-general had been blocked, and that the Labour Party and the BBC ‘are part of one Westminster conspiracy’ which came to his attention mostly after the white-wash ‘Hutton Inquiry’ into the suspicious death of David Kelly.
This is exactly the way it works with the media, especially considering how major names in politics, media, and royalty all meet up at the Bilderberg Group and such, and discuss world events. Public attention and favour is directed towards certain potential Presidents and Prime Ministers through the media, and the unsuspecting, mostly unconscious public never realise that they are being manipulated to vote for candidates that have been chosen for them! Under the old British imperialism it was – ‘we will decide who rules you, so you will do as we tell you!’ under modern-day democracy (hidden empire) it is – ‘we’ve given you the right to choose who rules you, so you are free to choose between who we have decided to rule you!’
‘I talk democracy to these men and women. I tell them that they have the vote, and that theirs is the kingdom and the power and the glory. I say to them, “you are supreme: exercise your power”. They say, “That's right – tell us what to do”, and I tell them. I say, “Exercise your vote intelligently by voting for me”. And they do. That's democracy; and a splendid thing it is too for putting the right men in the right place.’ – George Bernard Shaw
As the quote from Edward Bernays says at the beginning of this blog, ‘the conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society’ – that’s what democracy means – public opinion is moulded by the Elite in favour of whoever the Elite have decided will be Prime Minister/President, as this article explains.
I guess in principle democracy could work, but in practice there are a lot of serious flaws with it. It is of course better than open tyranny, and it would help if we didn’t have inbred dynasties trying to take over the world and mould public opinion, but that still doesn’t mean it’s the cure for all our ills. In my view, a Republic works a fair bit better, and I suppose a system of proportional representation in the UK would reflect public opinion a bit better, but that still doesn’t change the fact that public opinion is being artificially moulded by the Elite. The sleeping masses of the UK are mostly completely unaware of the Elite and their agenda, so in practice, our democracy simply doesn’t keep us a free country.
We might see Tony Blair or David Cameron in the headlines of the newspapers, about how ‘they’ decided to go war, how ‘they’ are keeping the economy in shape, etc, with a big blown-up image of their face on the front page, but we rarely hear about what’s going on in the background behind them.
Presidents and Prime-Ministers are like a brand logo – like the ‘M’ of MacDonald’s or the ‘goddess’ symbol of Starbucks.
Another analogy might be a singer like Britney Spears or something – she is the one singing the songs, but her songs are mostly written FOR her to perform by another musician employed by her Recording Label. Her stage-shows are also managed by her Label, and the Label’s management transport her from place to place to do interviews and performances in places THEY have mostly decided – the guys ‘behind-the-scenes’. You see HER face on the magazines and you might think it’s HER idea, but mostly it’s the management working behind the scenes. She just sings off the song-sheet written FOR her, so to speak.
By the way, I’m not bashing Britney Spears; I’m just describing how Prime-Ministers and Presidents are stage-managed and mostly used as ‘fronts’ for the Global Elite.
Whoever you vote for, they’re all stage-managed by the same Global Elite
It’s like a magician’s trick – he keeps you focused and intrigued by something he’s doing with his right hand, and so you never look at the background and see what he’s doing with his left hand, and it looks like he’s performed some miraculous feat. People then gasp in awe ‘wow, look at how powerful he is!’, but it’s all a big trick, it’s an illusion.
What the Elite do is keep you focused on Tony Blair or George Bush or someone, while the guys in the background – the Prime Minister’s aides, allies, and masters – go about running the country. Then you gasp in awe (or horror) at how ‘Gordon Brown’, or ‘David Cameron’, or ‘Barack Obama’, or ‘Bill Clinton’, etc, are running the country. And you demand someone new instead.
The idea is that the masses of people never realise that it doesn’t matter what face (Brown, Blair, Bush, Clinton, Cameron, Obama, etc) is voted for – the ‘Corporation’ or ‘Elite’ BEHIND the face go on doing what they did before.
The days of obedience to authoritarian monarchs and Elites have never gone away.
