Protocols of the Meetings of the Learned Elders of Zion: Protocol No. 12...
The need for daily bread forces the goyim to keep silence
and be our humble servants. Agents taken on to our press from
among the goyim will at our orders discuss anything which it is
inconvenient for us to issue directly in official documents, and
we meanwhile, quietly amid the din of the discussion so raised,
shall simply take and carry through such measures as we wish and
then offer them to the public as an accomplished fact. No one
will dare to demand the abrogation of a matter once settled, all
the more so as it will be represented as an improvement... And
immediately the press will distract the current of thought
towards new questions (have we not trained people always to be
seeking something new?). Into the discussions of these new
questions will throw themselves those of the brainless dispensers
of fortunes who are not able even now to understand that they
have not the remotest conception about the matters which they
undertake to discuss. Questions of the political are unattainable
for any save those who have guided it already for many ages, the
From all this you will see that in securing the opinion of
the mob we are only facilitating the working of our machinery,
and you may remark that it is not for actions but for words
issued by us on this or that question that we seem to seek
approval. We are constantly making public declaration that we are
guided in all our undertakings by the hope, joined to the
conviction, that we are serving the common weal.
In order to distract people who may be too troublesome from
discussions of questions of the political we are now putting
forward what we allege to be new questions of the political,
namely, questions of industry. In this sphere let them discuss
themselves silly! The masses are agreed to remain inactive, to
take a rest from what they suppose to be political activity
(which we trained them to in order to use them as a means of
combatting the goy governments) only on condition of being found
new employments, in which we are prescribing them something that
looks like the same political object. In order that the masses
themselves may not guess what they are about we further distract
them with amusements, games, pastimes, passions, people's
palaces... Soon we shall begin through the press to propose
competitions in art, in sport of all kinds: these interests will
finally distract their minds from questions in which we should
find ourselves compelled to oppose them. Growing more and more
disaccustomed to reflect and form any opinions of their own,
people will begin to talk in the same tone as we, because we
alone shall be offering them new directions for thought of course
through such persons as will not be suspected of solidarity with
The part played by the liberals, utopian dreamers, will be
finally played out when our government is acknowledged. Till such
time they will continue to do us good service. Therefore we shall
continue to direct their minds to all sorts of vain conceptions
of fantastic theories, new and apparently progressive: for have
we not with complete success turned the brainless heads of the
goyim with progress, till there it not among the goyim one mind
able to perceive that under this work lies a departure from truth
in all cases where it is not a question of material inventions,
for truth is one, and in it there is no place for progress.
Progress, like a fallacious idea, serves to obscure truth so that
none may know it except us, the Chosen of God, its guardians.
When we come into our kingdom our orators will expound great
problems which have turned humanity upside down in order to bring
it at the end under our beneficent rule.
Who will ever suspect then that all these peoples were
stage-managed by us according to political plan which no one has
so much as guessed at in the course of many centuries?...
