Understanding the "MACHIAVELLIAN MATRIX"

"We have found the enemy, and he is us!"
~ Pogo

Compilation by Christopher Rudy

DEFINITION: Machiavellianism: "The theory and practice of power politics elaborated from Machiavelli's The Prince: envisaging (1) seizure, maintenance, and extension of absolute power by the nicely graduated use of guile, fraud, force, and terror; (2) control by the ruler of all avenues of communication, thus facilitating the deliberate molding of public opinion; (3) the employment for surveillance and terrorist activities of subordinates who can be disowned and liquidated by the ruler, who thus escapes the blame for their atrocities."
From the 1982 edition of Funk & Wagnall's Dictionary

Nicoli Machiavelli lived in Florence, Italy, during the Renaissance of the early 1500's. Living in a tumultuous time, he thought that if one person, namely Lorenzo de' Medici, could be the absolute
ruler of all Italy, then order could be restored. In an effort to gain
favor with the powerful Medici family,
he wrote, "The Prince" as a blueprint, justifying the use of any means, no matter how sinister,
to gain and keep power.

"A wise prince will seek means by which his subjects will always and in every
possible condition of things have need of his government,
and then they will always be faithful to him."

~ Niccolo Machiavelli (1469-1527)

Simply put, if a prince conquered a city, the people would hate him. But if the prince secretly hired terrorists to create an insurrection, then marched into the city to put down the insurrection, the people would praise him as a hero.  Either way he increased his domain over the city, but it would be better for him if the citizens loved him rather than hated him for doing it.

Contrast that with Jeffersonian Democracy that champions public enlightenment for public self-government:

"We have the greatest opportunity the world has ever seen, as long as we remain honest
which will be as long as we can keep the attention of our people alive.
If they once become inattentive to public affairs, you and I,
and Congress and Assemblies, judges and governors
would all become wolves."
~ Thomas Jefferson

Compare that to modern history:

Consider how President Bush went from the lowest rating in the polls of any modern President, with the stock market tanking before 9/11, to the highest rating of any President... after 9/11.   Consider how the Bush Family is making a fortune on both the military-industrial stocks (Carlyle Group) and the huge Middle East oil projects they have vested interests in.  And consider how the source of the considerable wealth of the Bush Family was from direct complicity with major banking and corporate interests behind the rise and reign of the Third Reich.  Grandpappy Prescott Bush barely evaded criminal prosecution under War Crimes legislation.  His Rockefeller collaborators got him off.  Of course, the corporatocracy winners of WWII have rewritten history to somehow omit this part of it. Many people don't even know that the U.S. 'Federal Reserve Bank' was created by these banksters; it's not 'federal', and it has no 'reserves'.  It just lets the US government borrow money at interest that the public pays via taxes. That systems has always been bankrupt of Constitutional principles. It has created a super-wealthy 1% and increasing austerity for the 99%. The founders warned us, reality has awakened us, and a more just system will emerge. ~CR

George Washington referred to this practice in his Farewell Address, 1796:

"A small but artful and enterprising minority.... are likely, in the course of time and things, to become potent engines, by which cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the power of the people and to usurp for the themselves the reins of government;... This leads at length to a more formal and permanent despotism. The disorders and miseries, which result, gradually incline the minds of men to seek security and repose in the absolute power of an Individual... [who] turns this disposition to the purposes of his own elevation, on the ruins of public liberty.... Ill founded jealousies and false alarms, kindles the animosity of one part against another, foments occasionally riot and insurrection. - It opens the doors to foreign influence and corruption."

Referring to Washington, President Andrew Jackson gave a similar warning in his Farewell Address, 1837:

"Jealous anxiety for the preservation of the Union was earnestly pressed upon his fellow-citizens by the Father of his Country in his Farewell Address.... Washington... seemed to be... the voice of prophecy, foretelling events and warning us of the evil to come.... It is well known that there have always been those amongst us who wish to enlarge the powers of the General Government... to overstep the boundaries marked out for it by the Constitution.... Government would have passed from the hands of the many to the hands of the few, and this organized money power from its secret conclave would have dictated the choice of your highest officers and compelled you to make peace or war, as best suited their own wishes.... It is from within, among yourselves - from cupidity, from corruption, from disappointed ambition and inordinate thirst for power - that factions will be formed and liberty endangered. It is against such designs, whatever disguise the actors may assume, that you have especially to guard yourselves."

President William Henry Harrison admonished in his Inaugural Address, 1841:

"The tendency of power to increase itself, particularly when exercised by a single individual... would terminate in virtual monarchy.... The Executive department has become dangerous.... As long as the love of power is a dominant passion of the human bosom... so long will the liberties of a people depend on their constant attention.... The danger to all well-established free governments arises from the unwillingness of the people to believe in the existence... of designing men.... History, ancient and modern, is full of such examples. Caesar became the master of the Roman people and the senate under the pretense of supporting the democratic claims...; Cromwell, in the character of the protector of the liberties of the people, became the dictator of England, and Bolivar possessed himself of unlimited power with the title of his country's liberator.... The tendencies of all such governments in their decline is to monarchy... and, like the false Christs whose coming was foretold by the Savior, seeks to, and were it possible would, impose upon the true and most faithful disciples of liberty. It is in periods like this that it behooves the people to be most watchful of those to whom they have intrusted power."

The Constitution states in Section 8 that "Congress shall have the power... to declare War,"  Yet it seems suspect that so soon after Congress impeached President Clinton for lying, he took unto himself the power to order acts of war without consulting them. His reason for doing so was that there was no time, yet he had time to consult with UN and NATO leaders!

It has been almost 500 years since Machiavelli argued that:

  • any action is permissible to gain and keep political power;
  • that the end-justifies-the-means;
  • that creating crisis is necessary to concentrate control. 
With this in mind, if you're watching the shrill domestic terror alarms in the News, you can't help but wonder...
  • Is there is an enemy behind the enemy?
    "In order to have complete control over the conflict of opposites it is necessary to control the creation of textbook enemies as well. That Hitler's Third Reich (the communist revolution, the creation of Israel, Saddam Hussein, Noriega, Bin Laden and much too many to list) were financed, supported and nurtured by Wall Street bankers, and/or the CIA and/or members of western secret societies is not coincidence 3. With the Soviet Union having run its course (capitalism vs. communism) through successful "synthesis" with the west, a new "antithesis" was already mature enough to take its place: Islamic Fundamentalism."

  • Does the new "Homeland Security" agency (old FEMA) have a Gestapo agenda?
           "The 9-11 Commissioners and Zelikow had deep conflicts of interest and many reasons
             to cover up the truth about Sept. 11.  They are now engaged in a public relations effort to
             sell the official narrative and the war on terrorism.
    Both the official inquiry and the
             Commissions parameters were to support the official story and
    justify the creation of
             Homeland Security Department. / Homeland Security in German is geheimstadt politza,

             which during World War II was abbreviated to
    Gestapo. Do Americans really believe a
             Gestapo will make us safer?" ~
  • Is there a plan and intent to cull the population as published in the CFR's "Foreign Affairs"?
           "Underlying 'America's New War' is international 'population planning.' According to
             Rockefeller-directed population planners,
    additional depopulation must occur in
             advance of the New World Order.
    In the United States, according to the Council on
             Foreign Relations (CFR) March/April 1996, Foreign Affairs journal
    plans to depopulate
             America by half to achieve a U.S. population in the range of 125 to 150 million, or about
             its size in the 1940s, are underway."

In baseball there is a saying, "Keep your eye on the ball."  But in global politics its
 "Keep your eye on who's ending up with more money and power!"



Just remember this:  The technique of "world conquest" is to first create a "problem", then, create "panic" in the minds of the people.  And, then, offer the "solution" to the "problem" that created the "panic" among the people!

This is also called the Hegelian Dialectic ... a man by the name of Hegel took the philosophies of Malthus and Machiavelli and developed a way of social engineering.

IF you understand how this works AND you know the history of the 13 Families who own the Federal Reserve -- and what their goal is -- THEN you can see their hand in everything that happens in the world.

"The safest course is to do nothing against one's conscience.
     With this secret, we can enjoy life and have no fear from death."
 ~ Voltaire

"Our government has kept us in a perpetual state of fear-kept us in a continuous stampede of patriotic fervor-with the cry of grave national emergency. Always there has been some terrible evil at home or some monstrous foreign power that was going to gobble us up if we did not blindly rally behind it ..."
~ General Douglas MacArthur, 1957

"They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety
deserve neither liberty nor safety."
~ Benjamin Franklin

"Of all the enemies to public liberty, war is, perhaps, the most to be dreaded because it comprises and develops the germ of every other...
No nation could preserve its freedom in the midst of continual warfare." 

~ James Madison, April 20, 1795

"The accumulation of all powers, legislative, executive, and judiciary, in
the same hands ... may justly be pronounced
the very definition of tyranny."
~ James Madison, Federalist 47

"If you love wealth better than liberty, the tranquillity of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen."
~ Samuel Adams

"When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and
love has always won. There have been tyrants and murderers and for a time
they seem invincible but in the end, they always fall -- think of it, ALWAYS."
~ Mahatma Gandhi
