There are those who think that conspiracy theories do not exist - well here are the people who run the world talking about the conspiracies they know exist. That is because they were involved in running them or were the victims of them.
Milton Friedman, quotes about Conspiracy:
I am myself persuaded, on the basis of extensive study of the historical
evidence, that... the severity of each of the contractions - 1920-21,
1929-33, and 1937-38 - is directly attributable to acts of commission and
omission by the Reserve authorities and would not have occurred under
earlier monetary and banking arrangements.
J. Edgar Hoover, quotes about Conspiracy:
The individual is handicapped by coming face to face with a conspiracy so
monstrous he cannot believe it exists.
Rowan Gaither, quotes about Conspiracy:
The task is to] covertly lower the standard of living, the whole
social structure, of America so that we can be merged with all other
James A. Garfield, quotes about Conspiracy:
Whoever controls the volume of money in any country is absolute master
of all industry and commerce.
John F. Hylan, quotes about Conspiracy:
The real menace of our Republic is the invisible government which like
a giant octopus sprawls its slimy legs over our cities states and nation. At
the head is a small group of banking houses generally referred to as
'international bankers.' This little coterie... run our government for their
own selfish ends. It operates under cover of a self-created screen...[and]
seizes...our executive officers... legislative bodies... schools...
courts... newspapers and every agency created for the public protection.
Daniel K. Inouye, quotes about Conspiracy:
There exists a shadowy government with its own Air Force, its own
Navy, its own fundraising mechanism, and the ability to pursue its own ideas
of national interest, free from all checks and balances, and free from the
Thomas Jefferson, quotes about Conspiracy:
If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue
of their money, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and
corporations that will grow up around them (around the banks), will deprive
the people of their property until their children will wake up homeless on
the continent their fathers conquered.
Charles A. Lindbergh, Sr., quotes about Conspiracy:
This Act (the Federal Reserve Act, Dec. 23rd 1913) establishes the
most gigantic trust on earth. When the President (Woodrow Wilson) signs the
Bill, the invisible government of the Monetary Power will be legalised...
The worst legislative crime of the ages is perpetrated by this banking and
Arthur S. Miller, quotes about Conspiracy:
Those who formally rule take their signals and commands not from the
electorate as a body, but from a small group of men. This group will be
called the Establishment. It exists even though that existence is stoutly
denied. It is one of the secrets of the American social order... A second
secret is the fact that the existence of the Establishment - the ruling
class - is not supposed to be discussed.
J. P. Morgan, quotes about Conspiracy:
Capital must protect itself in every way... Debts must be
collected and loans and mortgages foreclosed as soon as possible. When
through a process of law the common people have lost their homes, they will
be more tractable and more easily governed by the strong arm of the law
applied by the central power of leading financiers. People without homes
will not quarrel with their leaders. This is well known among our principle
men now engaged in forming an imperialism of capitalism to govern the world.
By dividing the people we can get them to expend their energies in fighting
over questions of no importance to us except as teachers of the common herd.
Wright Patman, quotes about Conspiracy:
The dollar represents a one dollar debt to the Federal Reserve
System. The Federal Reserve Banks create money out of thin air to buy
Government Bonds from the U.S. Treasury...and has created out of nothing a
... debt which the American people are obliged to pay with interest.
Carroll Quigley, quotes about Conspiracy:
For the first time in its history, Western Civilization is in
danger of being destroyed internally by a corrupt, criminal ruling cabal
which is centered around the Rockefeller interests, which include elements
from the Morgan, Brown, Rothschild, Du Pont, Harriman, Kuhn-Loeb, and other
groupings as well. This junta took control of the political, financial, and
cultural life of America in the first two decades of the twentieth century.
Mayer Amschel Rothschild, quotes about Conspiracy:
Give me control of a nation's money and I care not who makes the
John Sherman, quotes about Conspiracy:
The few who could understand the system will either be so
interested in its profits, or so dependent on its favours, that there will
be no opposition from that class, while on the other hand, the great body of
the people mentally incapable of comprehending the tremendous advantage that
capital derives from the system, will bear its burdens without complaint,
and perhaps without even suspecting that the system is inimical to their
Franklin D. Roosevelt, quotes about Conspiracy:
The real truth of the matter is, as you and I know, that a
financial element in the large centers has owned the government of the U.S.
since the days of Andrew Jackson. History depicts Andrew Jackson as the last
truly honorable and incorruptible American president.
Franklin D. Roosevelt, quotes about Conspiracy:
In politics, nothing happens by accident. If it happened, you
can bet it was planned that way.
James Paul Warburg, quotes about Conspiracy:
We shall have World Government, whether or not we like it. The
only question is whether World Government will be achieved by conquest or
Woodrow Wilson, quotes about Conspiracy:
We have restricted credit, we have restricted opportunity, we
have controlled development, and we have come to be one of the worst ruled,
one of the most completely controlled and dominated, governments in the
civilized world--no longer a government by free opinion, no longer a
government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by
the opinion and the duress of small groups of dominant men.
Edward Bernays, quotes about Conspiracy:
The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and
opinions of the [public] is an important element in democratic society.
Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an
invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country.'
George Herbert Walker Bush, quotes about Conspiracy:
[The war in Iraq is] a rare opportunity to move toward an historic period of
cooperation. Out of these troubled times...a new world order can emerge.
William Colby, quotes about Conspiracy:
The Central Intelligence Agency owns everyone of any significance in the
Benjamin Disraeli, quotes about Conspiracy:
For you see, the world is governed by very different personages from what is
imagined by those who are not behind the scenes.
Albert Einstein, quotes about Conspiracy:
The ruling class has the schools and press under its thumb. This enables it
to sway the emotions of the masses.
Marilyn Ferguson, quotes about Conspiracy:
While outlining a not-yet-titled book about the emerging social
alternatives, I thought again about the peculiar form of this movement; its
atypical leadership, the patient intensity of its adherents, their unlikely
successes. It suddenly struck me that in their sharing of strategies, their
linkage, and their recognition of each other by subtle signals, the
participants were not merely cooperating with one another. They were in
collusion. It -- this movement -- is a conspiracy! … There are legions of
conspirators. They are in corporations, universities, and hospitals, on the
faculties of public schools, in factories and doctors’ offices, in state and
federal agencies, on city councils, and the White House staff, in state
legislatures, in volunteer organizations, in virtually all arenas of policy
making in the country.
Justice Felix Frankfurter, quotes about Conspiracy:
The real rulers in Washington are invisible and exercise power from
behind the scenes
