Substitutes For The Functions Of War

excerpt from
Report From Iron Mountain: On The Possibility and Desirability of Peace
pages 47-8 of pdf

The following substitute institutions, among others, have been proposed for consideration as replacements for the nonmilitary functions of war. That they may not have been originally set forth for that purpose does not preclude or invalidate their possible application here.

a) A comprehensive social-welfare program, directed toward maximum improvement of general conditions of human life.
b) A giant open-end space research program, aimed at unreachable targets.
c) A permanent, ritualized, ultra-elaborate disarmament inspection system, and variants of such a system.

a) An omnipresent, virtually omnipotent international police force.
b) An established and recognized extraterrestrial menace.
c) Massive global environmental pollution.
d) Fictitious alternate enemies.

a) Programs generally derived from the Peace Corps model.
b) A modern, sophisticated form of slavery.

a) Intensified environmental pollution.
b) New religions or other mythologies.
c) Socially oriented blood games.
d) Combination forms.

A comprehensive program of applied eugenics.

No replacement institution offered.

The secondary requirements of the space research, social welfare, and / or eugenics programs.

Hey Chris check this out.....

Some in depth perspectives on Iron Mountain.


In 1963 political columnist *Dan Smoot did a study of the stated purpose of the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund. His conclusion came to these four points, and they fit right into today’s America. They are:

1) To strip the United States of it’s gold reserve.
2) To build up the industrial capacities of other nations.
3) To remove markets from American producers.
4) To ENTWINE America’s affairs with other nations so that the U.S. could no longer act independently.

*Dan Smoot was a top advisor to the JBS.

In 1971 Dr. Stuart Crane did a presentation entitled “Proofs of Conspiracy,” in which he reported, “The British Fabian Group in England formed a group to bring about global Marxist-Communism.” Here is the four step plan he outlined:

1) Rich nations will not want to willfully merge with poor nations because the poor nations will sap the rich nations strength.
2) Because of this, you cannot expect developed nations to go directly into socialism.
3) In order to have a true world government, all nations must be merged together.
4) Because developed nations will not willfully merge with undeveloped nations and it is impossible for socialism to develop undeveloped nations, “DEVELOPED NATIONS MUST BE UNDEVELOPED.”

Because: Some animals are more equal than other animals. -Animal Farm- What the? >
Strike The Root: There are a thousand hacking at the branches of evil to one who is striking at the root.

Thanks. George Racey Jordan covered the first two fairly well his two books From Major Jordan's Diaries and Gold Swindle: The Story Of Our Dwindling Gold. He was asked to oversee the Soviet Lend-lease program from 1943-45 that transferred 9.6 billion worth of war materials along with copies of every U.S. patent and industry floor plan to Moscow. This thread goes into it.

Listen to the speech Jordan gave - introduced by G Edward Griffin - the man was an entertaining speaker despite the sickening gravity of his information...
