Power Elite

The term "power elite" traces to the writings of C. Wright Mills, including his 1956 book, The Power Elite. The concept posits wealthy and/or well connected families and individuals who seek to expand their wealth by applying and promoting dominant social themes. Such themes may eventually develop into widely held archetypes or memes.
Often such themes seem to originate with the United Nations, World Bank, World Trade Organization, World Health Organization or other international bodies that are receptive to influence by the power elite. The themes then are picked up and rebroadcast by the mainstream media. Thus, what may seem to be the work of an independent institutional staff may actually be the brainchild of the power elite.
Concepts such as bird flu, Islamofascism and peak oil are so extensively promoted that much of the public unquestioningly accepts their fearful premises and demand action. Those with the wherewithal to provide solutions ? products, services and corporate offerings via public markets ? may earn vast profits as a consequence.
There is little contemporary scholarly analysis of the concept of the power elite, but it corresponds roughly to what once was called "the money power."
There are a variety of theories as to the composition and character of the power elite. It sometimes is referred to ominously as the "Illuminati," the "black church" or the "black nobility." It is not necessary to confirm such characterizations to recognize that the action and influence of modern money power are pervasive.
In most conceptions, the core of the power elite coalesces around the European and American banking dynasties and some elite, titled families, or it may be characterized as a "sub-church" within the Roman Catholic, Jewish or other religion. Chief among these dynasties are likely the Rockefellers and Rothschilds.
In some conceptions, the power elite includes members who claim to trace their ancestry to ancient times, even to Babylon and beyond. This accords with the notion that members believe their pedigrees differentiate them from the "common herd."
Signifiers of power elite activity include a disdain of free markets and the persistent and uncritical promotion of a theme or meme to the exclusion of contrary evidence or argument.



On 15th Anniversary of Princess Di's Death, Reasons Have Probably Become Clear

Wednesday, September 05, 2012 ? by Staff Report

Princess Diana

Fifteen years ago this morning my wife woke me at 6am with an uncharacteristically robust thump: Princess Diana had been killed in a car crash in Paris after trying to escape the paparazzi in the company of Dodi Fayed. Melodramatic and tacky, it was in that dawn moment close to being that over-used word: unbelievable. "Is it really true?" people later asked each other on the tube as they read the shocking newspaper headlines. It was indeed, and the royal family fell into its gravest crisis since the abdication of the Queen's uncle, Edward VIII, in December 1936. Its response to Diana's death was inept and seemingly callous. If the House of Windsor was saved by the shrewder "people's princess" instinct of its new prime minister, it was not grateful: neither Tony Blair nor Gordon Brown was invited to last year's royal wedding. ? UK Guardian
Dominant Social Theme: The dove of Britain, now dead, will be remembered forever ... And her death was an accident!
Free-Market Analysis: Late last week, the British and American press were in full cry over Princess Diana, the "People's Princess," and how lovely she was ? and how she is missed.
Of course, it is always sad when a young person dies an untimely death but in this case one can certainly see power elite dominant social themes at work.
Having rid themselves of her one way or another, the powers-that-be are busy sanitizing her image. The 15th anniversary of her death in a Paris car crash gave them one more opportunity to do so. What we call the Internet Reformation gives a chance to review her passing as well and to draw at least one conclusion from it.
Her death, of course, remains controversial. Some say she was alive after the accident and executed on purpose ... as part of a hit on a woman the Royal "firm" couldn't stand and had come increasingly to fear.
The firm being, of course, the British Royal family, which functions more as a business than as a collection of relatives. Step out of line and one is marked for discipline of a graduated sort, from mere humiliation and financial deprivation to something much more severe.
What did Diana think of all of it? In a letter apparently given to her butler Paul Burrell ten months before she died as "insurance" (futile, that), she wrote, "This particular phase in my life is the most dangerous, my husband is planning an 'accident' in my car, brake failure and serious head injury in order to make the path clear for Charles to marry."
Business mogul Mohamed Al Fayed, whose son Dodi died in the crash alongside Diana, has famously declared the pair were murdered. His perspective is that Dodi had got Diana pregnant and that the Royal consort Prince Philip masterminded a plot that resulted in the car crash and dual murder.
Does it finally stop there? Here's an excerpt from a Daily Mail article, circa September 2010, entitled, "The full, acrimonious story glossed over by the Queen Mother's new biography."
Diana was secretly recorded saying on her mobile phone to her friend James Gilbey, now running a property search company: 'His (Charles's) grandmother is always looking at me with a strange look in her eyes. It's not hatred, it's sort of interest and pity mixed in one.'
Was it merely Princess Diana's behavior in publicly resisting Prince Charles' affair with his now wife, Camilla? The crux of the issue is likely verbalized by butler Paul Burrell in an interview with talk-show host Larry King (12/5/2002):
She (Queen Elizabeth II) said that there are forces out there of which we have no knowledge. I think she meant there were people working in the country that ? listening to telephone conversations and watching people all the time. I'm sure they are. I'm sure they're watching this right now, just to make sure that I'm not saying anything I shouldn't be saying, because the world's a very dangerous place, isn't it? You don't think?
Perhaps the pity that Diana noticed in the Queen Mother's eyes had to do with a kind of reluctant fascination that Princess Diana comprehended some but not all of the forces swirling around her. Money Power is a vicious mistress, subtle and then suddenly savage.
It is quite possible that Princess Diana, like her husband, had the kind of personality that was unsuited to royalty and the royal lifestyle. As the Guardian pointed out in an article, "All hail Her Majesty, the last silent celebrity in the land" (6/1/2012):
... Prince William but most pressingly Charles ? appear not to have identified that inscrutability has been the keystone of the Queen's mythmaking. Pettish, peremptory, idiotically conservative, lacking in self-awareness, and perhaps a hundredth as clever as he thinks he is ? if only we didn't know quite so much about Charles and his views on everything. There are less scrutable Big Brother contestants. Apr?s mama le d?luge?
As for Diana, a 1999 biography by Sally Bedell Smith ? Diana in Search of Herself: Portrait of a Troubled Princess ? claimed the Princess had a personality disorder. "I can't give a professional diagnosis, but I think it's safe to say that Diana was seriously disturbed for many years," Smith told the [UK] Sunday News. "She suffered from chronic and severe symptoms of the kind that psychiatrists use to describe borderline personality disorder."
Perhaps it was this that brought down the Princess more than any specific stories about damning information she was going to reveal about the Royal Family and its connections. What Diana perhaps did not comprehend fully was that the Royal family in aggregate serves at the pleasure of the City of London and its central banking families.
It is these globalist families that prop up royal prerogatives and have no doubt insisted on supporting the most high profile royal family of them all, the British Royal family.
One can speculate they do it to ensure that the spotlight is directed away from THEM.
They are the true rulers of Britain and indeed most of the world. Britain's empire never really died and Money Power is regnant today as never before.
If one wishes to function in such rarified circles, one must be able to keep one's mouth shut. Simple as that.
It is the Internet itself that has provided us with a frame of reference about Money Power and how it works. Within the context of Money Power's rarified circles, nothing is probably an accident.
The "firm" survives because it serves a purpose. Its drama, traditions and personalities focus subjects on "Britain" and "patriotic duty" rather than the larger globalist effort that has made the nation ground zero for carrying out the conspiracy of global government.
Princess Diana's sad story is neither incidental nor ephemeral but part and parcel of the operation of the larger internationalist plot manipulating British institutions and citizens. Chances are that Prince William and Prince Harry have sustained personality damage similar to Princess Diana, and thus there will be more of these sad stories going forwards.
Because of her personality and apparent lack of a full grasp of the larger power structure, Diana was probably doomed sooner or later ? to either a vicious marginalization or death. But her demise surely helped preserve the functionality of the firm and its usefulness for Money Power.
Conclusion: She didn't understand the depths of the waters in which she was swimming. Neither did most of us before the Internet.

City of London

The City of London, the historic central core of the city, is an independent entity about a mile square. Britain's financial services industry and central bank (Bank of England) are located within the City of London. There is a London Corporation that runs the City; it is not run by greater London. It has its own police force and is headed by a Lord Mayor. About 10,000 people call the City "home" but nearly 350,000 work in the City of London, including many lawyers and litigators. Historically, the City harkens back to Roman London, founded around 50 A.D. and known as Londinium.
The City waxed and waned for centuries but by the 16th century was taking on its modern profile as a banking and commercial center. A stock exchange was eventually founded and many international merchants made their headquarters in the City. By the 18th century, Britain's Industrial Revolution was beginning and the Empire itself was expanding. London spread out far beyond the City of London, but the City itself gained enormous power as the British conquered one-fourth of the world, colony by colony.
The City of London has its own motto: "Domine dirige nos" ? "Lord, direct (guide) us." It has its own coat of arms and flag. It maintains its unique status as perhaps the world's oldest incorporated city, with 25 wards that also serve as political districts. Each ward has an Alderman and Beadles, as well as a Ward Club ? something like a residents' association. The City of London supports performing arts centers and administers the Bridge House Trust, which in turn supervises the famous bridges of central London, including London Bridge and Blackfriars Bridge.
All this is somewhat beside the point, however. In reality, the City of London is actually the epicenter of an Anglo-American power elite that has dominated world finance for 500 years or more. The elite's modern genealogy is said to include Venetian bankers who arrived in Britain and intermarried with English royalty. Today, the world's most powerful families make the City of London either their home or base of operations. Even the Queen of England bows before she enters the City of London and when she walks in ceremonial parades, her place is a few steps behind the Lord Mayor.
Today, the City of London is the epicenter of central banking worldwide. It is the place from which world wars have emanated and plans for global conquest are apparently hatched there even today. The fear-based dominant social themes that the power elite uses to extract wealth and power from Western middle classes have their home in the City of London. The UN and League of Nations were given birth there and the EU was likely conceived there. Every centralizing influence in the world today of any note has its roots in the City of London or its sister-municipalities, Washington, DC and the Vatican. These three "independent" city-states function as a trilogy of money power, the building blocks of the New World Order, the epicenter of an effort that apparently seeks to organize the world into one large medieval plantation.
The City of London may seem like a quaint, historical backwater but it likely lies at the heart of the world's current turmoil. The Rothschilds themselves do business out of the City of London and the vastness of resources located in and around the City of London must number in the tens or even hundreds of trillions. Money power is centralized in the City of London and has never been dispersed, despite ever-present talk about how the "City" is losing its clout as a major financial player. It is not.

Her Majesty's Tax Collector Tells Children to Snitch

Thursday, July 26, 2012 ? by Staff Report

Queen Elizabeth II

HMRC tells school children: Tell your teacher if a neighbour is evading tax School children are being encouraged by HM Revenue and Customs to tell their teachers if they know of anyone "in their local area" who is not paying their fair share of tax. − UK Telegraph
Dominant Social Theme: Paying lots of taxes is a social responsibility.
Free-Market Analysis: According to the Daily Telegraph, the British tax collection agency is going into the teaching business by offering educational modules for use in classes.
This is not surprising given where Britain is heading ... back into recession, which is really depression. On every level now, Britain's society is apparently dysfunctional. It really seems a hopeless case. Here's an excerpt from an article that appeared in the British Daily Mail back in February.
Government spy programme will monitor every phone call, text and email... and details will be kept for up to a year ... Details of all texts, calls and emails will be stored for up to a year.
Details about text messages, phone calls, emails and every website visited by members of the public will be kept on record in a bid to combat terrorism. The Government will order broadband providers, landline and mobile phone companies to save the information for up to a year under a new security scheme.
What is said in the texts, emails or phone calls will not be kept but information on the senders, recipients and their geographical whereabouts will be saved. Direct messages to users of social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter will also be saved and so will information exchanged between players in online video games. The information will be stored by individual companies rather than the government.
This invasive approach is quite interesting given the phone hacking scandal now taking place in Britain. This very week, British prosecutors announced yet more criminal charges against eight people in connection with Britain's phone-hacking scandal.
The eight suspects tapped the cell phones of celebrities, politicians and others in the public spotlight. Among them is Rebekah Brooks, who led Rupert Murdoch's British newspapers, including the News of the World.
Acres of newsprint have been devoted to the perfidy of those who spied upon celebrities, but when one looks at what British authorities are embarked upon ? the larger invasive ambition ? any private sector spying seems almost incidental.
Of course, from our point of view, it is not British authorities that are behind these gambits but a power elite that makes its home in the private City of London and has tentacles throughout Europe. It wants to run the world, though it is making a botch of the job close to home.
This Money Power is responsible for the way Britain is today. It derives its power from central banking and uses this wealth to create ever-closer global governance. Britain, unfortunately acts as a kind of test tube in this regard.
Beyond the application of technology, British society is immensely stratified. Never, it seems, has there been so much talk of egalitarianism in any one patch of land and so little application.
The manifestations of government are extraordinarily important to Money Power, which uses government levers to create sociopolitical movement in the direction it seeks. It is Money Power in part that keeps the Royal Family in power and props up British social class structures.
It is also Money Power that insists on the ever-more invasive and pervasive approach of government to the private sector. Central banking basically got its start in Britain, and the British approach to the social system mingles government with the private sector in every possible way.
Whether you look at health care, education or the money business itself you will be struck, if you analyze it, how much the government is involved.
But none of it is very efficient. British schools don't work; the health care system is so determinedly Marxist that it would be at home in the former Soviet Union. The banking system is basically a fiefdom of the incompetent Bank of England.
The British as a whole have been basically betrayed by their own upper classes. Its top politicians, for instance, have consistently promised a referendum on Britain's involvement in the European Union without ever providing it.
It is Money Power that seeks a pan-European region that will better support one world government. The pols in this regard do as they are told.
But this betrayal goes far beyond any one particular event or policy. We can see in this article about tax policy just how adversarial Britain's ruling class is to the citizens it supposedly serves. Here's more:
The news came after a Treasury minister said it was "morally wrong" for home owners to negotiate discounts with plumbers and traders by paying them in cash if it allowed them to evade tax.
HMRC has set up teaching modules to guide children through the hazards of pay as you earn and National Insurance contributions. Some of the modules ? which can be downloaded from HMRC's website - teach school children as young as 11 about paying their fair share of tax ...
One module, headlined "tax responsibilities of a good citizen", aims to help teenagers "understand the obligations if being a good citizen and discuss what should happen to hose who are not prepared to work under such obligations".
One lesson plan ? targeted at 14 to 16 year olds ? requires students to "discuss whether it is good to pay the tax we do, considering the benefits we receive. If it is good, then why do people try not to pay?" It continues: "Show class the remaining factfile slides on tax evasion. What do students think of those who refuse to pay tax or try and defraud the benefits system?
"Can they think of any example they may have heard of in their local area?" A further "plenary session" asks: "What do students now think about paying taxes? In what other ways can we contribute to working together for a better society?
The attack on the long-suffering British citizen is seemingly endless and escalating. The spy cameras in London, the arrogant way that the authorities have treated the British public when it comes to the upcoming Olympics, the insistence on a stratified society and outdated Royal Family ... all these are symptoms of an increasingly dysfunctional society.
Government is not a good administrator of funds. The best way to create livable societies is to let the private sector provide as many services as possible, as the private sector plans for the future and considers ongoing revenues before it creates something.
Tax systems in the West, like drug laws, are apparently ways for a larger authoritarian elite to organize society and provide justifications for an enormously invasive bureaucracy. Taxes are a behavior modification device, not a revenue raiser. Central banking economies don't need to collect taxes. They can print what they wish.
In the case of the current program on which HMRC has embarked, we can see yet another component of the UK's current tax program ... its inherent divisiveness. What the UK authorities are doing here is deliberately placing the youth of Britain into a position that is adversarial to society as large.
This sort of deliberately projected divisiveness is not healthy, for it ultimately promises more social unrest and dysfunction. Of course, perhaps that's just the point. Nation-states need to be torn down so that they can be remade as part of a larger worldwide union. Out of chaos, order.
Conclusion: Given the misery that is Britain, one would likely admit that its top elites, at the behest of Money Power, are doing an all-too-effective job.
