The Heart of the Beast: Fabian Socialism
Silver Bear ^ | Nov. 17, 2007 | G. Edward Griffin

Posted on 02/19/2012 11:10:40 AM PST by Yollopoliuhqui

The result of this two-party charade is that Americans – and those in most other countries in the Western World – are the victims of a great deception. Voters have been fooled into thinking they are participating in their own political destiny when, in reality, they are being herded into a high-tech feudalism entirely without their consent and, to a large degree, even without their knowledge. This is accomplished by the mirage of a meaningful choice at election time when, in fact, the major parties and their candidates are merely two branches of the same tree of collectivism. Voters today are not attracted to candidates because of their political principles. They have none. Political principles are never allowed as a topic of debate, anyway. Instead, voters make choices on the basis of candidates’ good looks, their smiles, how clever they are in televised debates, their perceived sincerity, and especially how many “benefits” they promise to give to some citizens that are paid from taxes from other citizens. Legalized plunder is a powerful motivator, and it is used with precision by both major parties."

This is the best overview of the game board I've come across. With it, accurate target acquisition can be made. Without it, we stumble about like clowns.

He wrote the classic book “The Creature from Jekyll Island” about the history of the Federal Reserve Bank. It’s fascinating, and regardless of your feeling about the need for a central bank, it will change the way you understand America.

*** voters make choices on the basis of candidates’ good looks, their smiles, how clever they are in televised debates,***

Those who heard the Nixon-Kennedy debate on radio back in 1960 said Nixon won hands down.

Those who saw the Nixon-Kennedy debate on TV said Kennedy won because of his handsome features vs Nixon’s “shifty” features.

Thanks for the link. It does seem to be a quite good explanation and informative web site.

However, the link took me to part 2 of a 3 part discourse. I could not find in a quick scan, the excerpted material. Would you please tell me which part and which chapter heading contains the excerpt? THanks!

While at the same time, chilling.

in the 08 primaries the media also made Hillary look like a monster with harsh lighting and camera angles and they made Obama look godlike and presidential , avoiding broadcasting any speech gaffes and hiding or glossing over any of Obamas past record like with Odinga or Ayers

Yes, it is chilling, but glad there is some exposure, many folks don’t know about this.

For anyone who is interested, here are some other good articles on fabian marxism or cultural marxism, i.e. "user friendly Marxism":

Who Stole Our Culture

About the Frankfurt School

What Is Political Correctness

The results, described by defector Yuri Bezmenov, who was interviewed by Griffin:

" . . . They are contaminated; they are programmed to think and react to certain stimuli in a certain pattern. You cannot change their mind[s], even if you expose them to authentic information, even if you prove that white is white and black is black, you still cannot change the basic perception and the logic of behavior. In other words, these people... the process of demoralization is complete and irreversible . . ." 1984

This information first cme to me through Glenn Beck a few years back. Thought it was hard to digest back then, but once you read about it and study it, things do become clear. It just overwhelms one to know that we really are the little people and they are all pandering to us. Ultimately, we are at their mercy. Chilling.

It’s from the Part 2 article at the link. I took the quote from somewhere in the last 1/4. Pick a unique word or a phrase in the excerpt and use the Find function in your browser. There are 4 parts to the article. You can read the other parts from links at the top of Part 2
