Protocols of the Meetings of the Learned Elders of Zion: Protocol No. 2...
Today I may tell you that our goal is now only a few steps
off. There remains a small space to cross and the whole long path
we have trodden is ready now to close its cycle of the Symbolic
Snake, by which we symbolize our people. When this ring closes,
all the States of Europe will be locked in its coil as in a
The constitution scales of these days will shortly break
down, for we have established them with a certain lack of
accurate balance in order that they may oscillate incessantly
until they wear through the pivot on which they turn. The goyim
are under the impression that they have welded them sufficiently
strong and they have all along kept on expecting that the scales
would come into equilibrium. But the pivots -- the kings on their
thrones -- are hemmed in by their representatives, who play the
fool, distraught with their own uncontrolled and irresponsible
power. This power they owe to the terror which has been breathed
into the palaces. As they have no means of getting at their
people, into their very midst, the kings on their thrones are no
longer able to come to terms with them and so strengthen
themselves against seekers after power. We have made a gulf
between the far-seeing Sovereign Power and the blind force of the
people so that both have lost all meaning, for like the blind man
and his stick, both are powerless apart.
In order to incite seekers after power to a misuse of power
we have set all forces in opposition one to another, breaking up
their liberal tendencies towards independence. To this end we
have stirred up every form of enterprise we have armed all
parties, we have set up authority as a target for every ambition.
Of States we have made gladiatorial arenas where a host of
confused issues contend. A little more, and disorders and
bankruptcy will be universal.
Babblers inexhaustible have turned into oratorical contests
the sittings of Parliament and Administrative Boards. Bold
journalists and unscrupulous pamphleteers daily fall upon
executive officials. Abuses of power will put the final touch in
preparing all institutions for their overthrow and everything
will fly skyward under the blows of the maddened mob.
All people are chained down to heavy toil by poverty more
firmly than ever they were chained by slavery and serfdom; from
these, one way and another, they might free themselves, these
could be settled with, but from want they will never get away. We
have included in the constitution such rights as to the masses
appear fictitious and not actual rights. All these so-called
"People's Rights" can exist only in idea, an idea which can never
be realized in practical life. What is it to the proletariat
labourer, bowed double over his heavy toll, crushed by his lot in
life, if talkers get the right to babble, if journalists get the
right to scribble any nonsense side by side with good stuff, once
the proletariat has no other profit out of the constitution save
only those pitiful crumbs which we fling them from our table in
return for their voting in favour of what we dictate, in favour
of the men we place in power, the servants of our agentur....
Republican rights for a poor man are no more than a bitter piece
of irony, for the necessity he is under of toiling almost all day
gives him no present use of them, but on the other hand robs him
of all guarantee of regular and certain earnings by making him
dependent on strikes by his comrades or lockouts by his masters.
The people under our guidance have annihilated the
aristocracy, who were their one and only defence and foster-
mother for the sake of their own advantage which is inseparably
bound up with the well-being of the people. Nowadays, with the
destruction of the aristocracy, the people have fallen into the
grips of merciless money-grinding scoundrels who have laid a
pitiless and cruel yoke upon the necks of the workers.
We appear on the scene as alleged saviours of the worker
from this oppression when we propose to him to enter the ranks of
our fighting forces -- Socialists, Anarchists, Communists -- to
whom we always give support in accordance with an alleged
brotherly rule (of the solidarity of all humanity) of our social
masonry. The aristocracy, which enjoyed by law the labour of the
workers, was interested in seeing that the workers were well fed,
healthy and strong. We are interested in just the opposite -- in
the deminution, the killing out of the GOYIM. Our power is in the
chronic shortness of food and physical weakness of the worker
because by all that this implies he is made the slave of our
will, and he will not find in his own authorities either strength
or energy to set against our will. Hunger creates the right of
capital to rule the worker more surely than it was given to the
aristocracy by the legal authority of kings.
By want and the envy and hatred which it engenders we shall
move the mobs and with their hands we shall wipe out all those
who hinder us on our way.
When the hour strikes for our Sovereign Lord of all the
World to be crowned it is these same hands which will sweep away
everything that might be a hindrance thereto.
The goyim have lost the habit of thinking unless prompted by
the suggestions of our specialists. Therefore they do not see the
urgent necessity of what we, when our kingdom comes, shall adopt
at once, namely this, that it is essential to teach in national
schools one simple, true piece of knowledge, the basis of all
knowledge -- the knowledge of the structure of human life, of
social existence, which requires division of labour, and,
consequently, the division of men into classes and conditions. It
is essential for all to know that owing to difference in the
objects of human activity there cannot be any equality, that he
who by any act of his compromises a whole class cannot be equally
responsible before the law with him who affects no one but only
his own honour. The true knowledge of the structure of society,
into the secrets of which we do not admit the goyim, would
demonstrate to all men that the positions and work must be kept
within a certain circle, that they may not become a source of
human suffering, arising from an education which does not
correspond with the work which individuals are called upon to do.
After a thorough study of this knowledge the peoples will
voluntarily submit to authority and accept such position as is
appointed them in the State. In the present state of knowledge
and the direction we have given to its development the people,
blindly believing things in print -- cherishes -- thanks to
promptings intended to mislead and to its own ignorance -- a
blind hatred towards all conditions which it considers above
itself, for it has no understanding of the meaning of class and
This hatred will be still further magnified by the effects
of an economic crisis, which will stop dealings on the exchanges
and bring industry to a standstill. We shall create by all the
secret subterranean methods open to us and with the aid of gold,
which is all in our hands, a universal economic crisis whereby we
shall throw upon the streets whole mobs of workers simultaneously
in all the countries of Europe. These mobs will rush delightedly
to shed the blood of those whom, in the simplicity of their
ignorance, they have envied from their cradles, and whose
property they will then be able to loot.
"Ours" they will not touch, because the moment of attack
will be known to us and we shall take measures to protect our
We have demonstrated that progress will bring all the goyim
to the sovereignty of reason. Our despotism will be precisely
that; for it will know how by wise severities to pacificate all
unrest, to cauterise liberalism out of all institutions.
When the populace has seen that all sorts of concessions and
indulgences are yielded it in the name of freedom it has imagined
itself to be sovereign lord and has stormed its way to power,
but, naturally, like every other blind man it has come upon a
host of stumbling blocks, it has rushed to find a guide, it has
never had the sense to return to the former state and it has laid
down its plenipotentiary powers at our feet. Remember the French
Revolution, to which it was we who gave the name of "Great": the
secrets of its preparations are well known to us for it was
wholly the work of our hands.
Ever since that time we have been leading the peoples from
one disenchantment to another, so that in the end they should
turn also from us in favour of that King-Despot of the blood of
Zion, whom we are preparing for the world.
At the present day we are, as an international force,
invincible, because if attacked by some we are supported by other
States. It is the bottomless rascality of the goyim peoples, who
crawl on their bellies to force, but are merciless towards
weakness, unsparing to faults and indulgent to crimes, unwilling
to bear the contradictions of a free social system but patient
unto martyrdom under the violence of a bold despotism -- it is
those qualities which are aiding us to independence. From the
premier-dictators of the present day the goyim peoples suffer
patiently and bear such abuses as for the least of them they
would have beheaded twenty kings.
What is the explanation of this phenomenon, this curious
inconsequence of the masses of the peoples in their attitude
towards what would appear to be events of the same order?
It is explained by the fact that these dictators whisper to
the peoples through their agents that through these abuses they
are inflicting injury on the States with the highest purpose --
to secure the welfare of the peoples, the international
brotherhood of them all, their solidarity and equality of rights.
Naturally they do not tell the peoples that this unification must
be accomplished only under our sovereign rule.
And thus the people condemn the upright and acquit the
guilty, persuaded ever more and more that it can do whatsoever it
wishes. Thanks to this state of things the people are destroying
every kind of stability and creating disorders at every step.
The word "freedom" brings out the communities of men to
fight against every kind of force, against every kind of
authority, even against God and the laws of nature. For this
reason we, when we come into our kingdom, shall have to erase
this word from the lexicon of life as implying a principle of
brute force which turns mobs into bloodthirsty beasts.
These beasts, it is true, fall asleep again every time when
they have drunk their fill of blood, and at such times can easily
be riveted into their chains. But if they be not given blood they
will not sleep and continue the struggle.
