Jefferson's picture

Repectfully

I think Eric has a point. The institutions he's cited have a great deal of influence on the mind, which is the ultimate battlefield. Some of the first movie theaters were playing propaganda to support war efforts.

"If I can make you believe absurdities, I can make you commit atrocities."

Just look at the impact that Pearl Harbor had on our Nation which was mostly isolationist after WWI. And yes, I meant to use the word isolationist because we mostly were. The "America First" party dissolved pretty quickly after the attack.

The quote from Rothschild makes a good deal of sense as well.

"Give me the wealth of a nation and I care not who makes its laws."

I think it was Kissinger who said "if you want to control a Nation you control the resources. If you want to control the people, you control the food."

"He who has the gold makes the rules."
