The Protocols of Zion

|A one page summary…
Goyim are mentally inferior to Jews and can’t run their
nations properly. For their sake and ours, we need to abolish
their governments and replace them with a single government.
This will take a long time and involve much bloodshed, but
it’s for a good cause. Here’s what
we’ll need to do:
Eventually the Goyim will be so angry with their governments (because
we’ll blame them for the resulting mess) that they’ll
gladly have us take over. We will then appoint a descendant of
David to be king of the world, and the remaining Goyim will bow down
and sing his praises. Everyone will live in peace and obedient
order under his glorious rule.
- Place our agents and helpers everywhere
- Take control of the media and use it in propaganda for our plans
- Start fights between different races, classes and religions
- Use bribery, threats and blackmail to get our way
- Use Freemasonic Lodges to attract potential public officials
- Appeal to successful people’s egos
- Appoint puppet leaders who can be controlled by blackmail
- Replace royal rule with socialist rule, then communism, then despotism
- Abolish all rights and freedoms, except the right of force by us
- Sacrifice people (including Jews sometimes) when necessary
- Eliminate religion; replace it with materialism
- Control the education system to spread deception and destroy intellect
- Rewrite history to our benefit
- Create entertaining distractions
- Corrupt minds with filth and perversion
- Encourage people to spy on one another
- Keep the masses in poverty and perpetual labor
- Take possession of all wealth, property and (especially) gold
- Use gold to manipulate the markets, cause depressions etc.
- Introduce a progressive tax on wealth
- Replace sound investment with speculation
- Make long-term interest-bearing loans to governments
- Give bad advice to governments and everyone else
#1 - What we Believe
1-2. Let's discuss the differences between us
Jews and them Goyim (non-Jews).
3. People are basically evil by
nature. The bad people in this world far outnumber the
good. So the best form of government is not one that holds
reasoned discussions with its people, but one that uses tyranny.
Most people would gladly become an all-powerful dictator
and sacrifice the well-being of others for their own benefit.
4. Where do people get their
guidance? And what stops them from acting out their evil
5. In olden times people behaved like animals
and were guided by the force of their bestial instincts. Then
as society developed, humans developed laws to follow. But
these laws were based on those same natural instincts. So the
only valid Law is the 'law of nature', i.e. the use of force.
6. Freedom is only an ideal: nobody really has
it. But if you want to win an election it's good to preach
the ideals of freedom, even if you plan to deprive your voters of it.
If your opponent believes in the concept of freedom,
like as a 'Libertarian', use that against him. Because if he
foolishly believes in freedom he won't be willing to use the
underhanded tactics that you do. He will play fair while you
Any government that is based on freedom loses control
over its people. This is a terrible thing because remember
that people are basically bad and the only way to guide them is by
force. If a government is guided by freedom the people will
become weak. We can take advantage of that weakness to
overpower them and install a new government.
7. There was a time when religion was the
guiding force of
mankind. But now, money is more important than
religion. Money – especially Gold – is
the new guiding force because it gives power and freedom to the common
people. But that freedom is bad because they’ll
always want more and don’t know how to use it. We
can’t allow that.
Self-governance can be given to the masses, but only long enough for
them to form a disorganized mob. At that point we should
intervene to create strife and racial hatred between their different
classes and races. This will cause them to fight and kill
each other; hopefully starting a civil war.
8. Once a nation is engaged in civil war it will either
destroy itself or be weakened to the point where it can be overtaken by
another foreign power. In either case our job will be done as
they’ll no longer be a threat to us.
If that nation ends up in bankruptcy we’ll offer to loan them
some of our money. They’ll have no option but to
9. If anyone claims that the above is immoral, let me ask
them this: Suppose a nation has two enemies: an external enemy which is
a neighboring nation; and an internal enemy represented by political
rivals who might try to overthrow the nation from within.
Well, if it is acceptable to destroy the other nation without any
regard to morals, then why should it not also be acceptable to destroy
the internal enemy? After all, it’s the more
dangerous of the two and the more likely to succeed in destroying
10. Who in their right mind could expect to govern the people
by the use of reasoned debate? Because those people, who are
really quite stupid when compared to you, could then counter your
arguments with their own silly arguments, and then you’d have
to keep debating them. You’d get nowhere.
The people who make up society (voters) are lame-brained numskulls who
never achieve anything. They spend their time following
astrology charts and football. They obviously can’t
In fact, the only time they agree on anything is when we trick the
majority of them into believing something. So they may as
well just let us do our job of ruling them. Otherwise the
whole nation will erupt into anarchy.
11. Politics has nothing to do with morals. Anyone
who tries to govern according to morals is a moron and unsuitable for
office. A true politician must resort to cunning and lies if
he expects to get anywhere.
Great qualities such as honesty and integrity are a burden for any
ruler. Anyone in politics who decides to start behaving like
this – their career will be over before they know
it. Most Goyim believe that their rulers should have these
qualities; but of course, we know better.
12. There is a common-held belief that all
people are born
with ‘rights’, meaning that they should be allowed
to do or have certain things in life, regardless of who they
are. But there is no way of proving this.
13. What is a right? Where does it begin and end?
14. If a ruler starts granting rights, then everyone will
start demanding new rights, especially libertarians. Soon the
nation will be overrun with rights and the ruler will look
stupid. From this I conclude that there is only one right:
right of the strong over the weak. It gives a ruler the power
to do whatever he wants, and to become supreme lord over those
libertarian people who had better give up their rights to him
15. Our method of gaining power is better than any other
because it grows invisibly. Then when it has gained enough
strength, we can unleash it; and it will be unstoppable because no one
will be prepared for it.
16. We need to do a lot of evil things in order to gain
power. But that’s okay because once we have power
over everything we can use it to do good things; like running the
nations properly. We could never do that if we gave people
The end justifies the means. So let’s put
aside moral issues and focus on the end result.
17. We have a good long-range plan here and we
can’t afford to deviate from it. Otherwise all our
work over the centuries would have been for nothing.
18. In order to plan our actions effectively, we must take
into account that the common people are an incoherent mob of blathering
idiots who can’t even look after themselves.
These people are blind, senseless and have no ability to
reason. In fact, they’ll get suckered in by anyone.
While the majority of them are total nincompoops that would follow one
another over a cliff-top, as they have no leadership skills;
one might emerge who appears to have some degree of
intelligence. However even these people don’t
understand how to lead, and if you let them, they’d bring a
whole nation to ruin.
19. Only someone trained from childhood to serve as a leader
can truly understand politics.
20. People left to look after themselves will be brought to
ruin. That’s because their leaders, who emerge from
among them, are only interested in power and glory. Is it
possible for these people to put aside their self-interests and manage
the affairs of their nation?
Like, can they defend themselves from an external enemy? No
way! When a project of that scale is divided up among the
many dimwitted members of their society, it becomes unintelligible to
21. Only a despotic ruler can
carry out large
operations, and distribute all the necessary resources to the various
departments so that important plans can be executed. From
this we conclude that the most effective government is one that
concentrates all its power in the hands of a single responsible person.
Without absolute despotism there is no way to guide the masses and
civilization will fall apart. They are savage barbarians and
behave like that at every opportunity.
The moment the people gain freedom it quickly turns to anarchy, which
is just savagery.
22. Notice that when people are given freedom, they use it
drink themselves senseless and behave like animals. We
ourselves should avoid behaving like that.
Goyim are always drinking alcohol, or thinking about doing
so. We caused this to happen by using our many agents to
promote it as part of their culture. It increases immorality
and makes their youth stupid.
We have agents placed everywhere, occupying many positions throughout
society. Such as tutors, lackeys, governesses in the houses
of the wealthy, by clerks and others. We also have a lot of
women-agents acting as prostitutes who assist in the corruption process.
23. Our modus operandi is: Force and Make-Believe.
Only force gives you power, especially in the hands of a smooth talker.
Violence and deception must be the rule for any politician who wants to
remain in power. This may be considered evil, but remember,
evil is justified when it is used to achieve good. Therefore
we must not stop at bribery, deceit and treachery if they help us
attain our end goal.
In politics we must know how to seize the property of others without
hesitation if it allows us to gain full power over them.
24. We may need to wage many wars in order to achieve
ultimate peace. Between wars, we can replace the horrors of
war by less noticeable and more satisfactory sentences of
death. This is necessary to maintain terror in the populace
which leads to blind submission.
A just but merciless penal system is the greatest strength of the
State. We do this not only for the sake of gain but also in
the name of duty. For the sake of our victory, we must stick
to the program of violence and make-believe.
It is enough for them to know that we are merciless for any
disobedience to cease.
The principle of balancing accounts (particularly the repayment of debts) is strongly
ingrained and one which we will take advantage of. We will
use this principle as a means to bring all governments under the
control of our super-government.
25. Far back in ancient times we were
first to stand
among crowds of people and cry out the words "Liberty, Equality,
Fraternity". The people fell for our bait. They
picked up those words and started repeating them parrot-like throughout
the world. As a result they have taken away the well-being of
the world and the true freedom of the individual, which was formerly
well protected from mob pressure.
The so-called wise men of the Goyim, the intellectuals, could not make
anything out of these words. They just cannot see that in
nature there is no equality or freedom; that nature herself has
established inequality of minds, characters and capacities.
They never stopped to consider that the mob is blind thing, and as
such, can only elect leaders that must be as blind as the mob
itself. And even if the mob does manage to find someone
intelligent, that person wouldn’t understand politics, as
pointed out earlier. Goyim don’t take any of this
26. Thanks to dumb-assed libertarians, the words "Liberty,
Equality, Fraternity" have spread to all corners of the earth.
These words installed peace, quiet and solidarity throughout all Goyim
of the earth, and thus weakened their strength.
As you will see later, this helped us to our victory: it gave us the
possibility of getting our hands on the master stroke – the
destruction of privileges and power of their royalty. That
royal class was the only defense the Goyim had against us.
On the ruins of the eternal and heir-based aristocracy of the Goyim we
have set up the aristocracy of our educated class headed by the
aristocracy of money.
The entry qualifications to this aristocracy are based on wealth (which
is dependent upon us) and on knowledge, which also comes from us,
especially from our learned elders who have provided much inspiration.
27. Our victory has been made easier by fact that whenever we
sought favors from men in power we always appealed to their most basic
of desires. Like cash-money and all kinds of material
goodies. Even one human weakness is often enough to pass
control of these men over to those offering the bribes.
28. The concept of freedom has enabled us to convince the
people of all countries that their government is a servant of the
people, that the people are the true owners of the country and that
that servant can be replaced like a worn-out glove.
29. This possibility of replacing the representatives of the
people gives us the power to appoint a new government.
Protocol #2 –
1. Whenever we start a war, we shouldn’t do so for
the purpose of gaining territory; at least not as a general
rule. Instead we should do it for economic gains.
This way everyone will see how powerful we are; and they will be in
fear of our many international spies and agents who roam the earth
National rights will then be wiped out by our international rights,
which are the proper sense of right – the right of
We will then rule the nations in the same way that the nations rule
2. The people chosen by us to act as rulers of a nation will
not be those trained in the art of leadership. Instead
we’ll select them based on their capacity to take
orders. They’ll be puppets under the control of
smart men who will be their advisers: specialists bred and reared from
early childhood to rule the affairs of the whole world.
As you well know, these specialists of ours have been trained to get
the information they need from our political plans, from the lessons of
history, and from observations made of current events.
The Goyim are not guided by observations of history, but by theories on
how the world is supposed to work. They don’t
bother to check whether those theories are true or not. So
don’t trouble yourself with them. Let them amuse
themselves until the final hour strikes, in their utopian beliefs, in
entertainments, or on the memories of all they have enjoyed.
Let them organize their beliefs around scientific theories.
We are constantly using our media to encourage Goyim to have blind
confidence in these theories.
The intellectuals of the Goyim will fill their minds with this
scientific knowledge without questioning its validity or
usefulness. Our agent specialists have carefully determined
what type of knowledge the intellectuals receive, and in this way we
can steer their minds in the direction we want.
3. Do not suppose for a moment that
empty words: think carefully of the successes we arranged for
Darwinism, Marxism, Nietzsche-ism. To us Jews it should be
obvious to see how destructive these ideologies have been upon the
minds of the Goyim.
4. It is vital that we take into account the thoughts, characters
and cultural tendencies of the nations in order that we avoid making
mistakes in the takeover of their political and administrative affairs.
In order for us to succeed, we must adjust our methods to accommodate
for the cultural and regional differences of nations.
Similarly, if a culture should change over time, we must change our
methods to suit.
5. The Media has a great influence on people’s
thoughts. It was previously in the hands of sovereign
governments, but is now under our control.
Our Media’s role is to convince people that our plans are
important, and to allow them to express some dissatisfaction which will
help create discontent. The Media can be a
powerful force for freedom of speech. But Goyim
don’t know how to use this force so it always falls into our
Through the Media we have gained the power of influence while remaining
invisible. Thanks to the Media we now have the Gold in our
hands. Mind you, we also needed to use an awful lot of
violence and underhanded tactics to achieve this.
But it was worth it, even though we had to sacrifice many of our own
people. In the eyes of God, one Jew is worth a thousand Goyim.
Protocol #3 –
1. I have some good news. We’re only a
few steps away from our goal. There’s a small way
to go, but when we get there, we’ll have achieved the closing
of our Symbolic Snake. This Snake represents the spreading of
our people across Europe. When the Snake closes into a loop,
the whole of Europe will be locked in its constricting coils.
2. The constitutions of the various nations will soon break
down. For we have designed them with a certain lack of
accurate balance: such that their component verses grind against each
other to the point where the whole constitution falls apart.
Goyim are under the impression that those versus are welded strongly
together and any discrepancies between them should balance out over
time. But their monarchs, who might enforce that welding, are
surrounded by representatives who play the role of fools lusting for
uncontrolled and irresponsible power.
The monarchs owe their power to the terror that has been breathed into
their palaces. As they no longer have direct access to their
people, the kings on their thrones are not able to come to terms with
them, and cannot strengthen themselves against those who seek to take
We have created a rift between the far-sighted Sovereign Power and the
blind force of the people, such that both have lost their
effectiveness. For like the blind man and his stick, they are
3. In order to incite those who seek power to misuse that
power, we have caused all political forces to turn against one
other. This breaks up their libertarian desires toward
To this end we have stirred up every political, social and minority
group. We have armed all sides. We have labeled
authority as a target for every ambition.
We have turned parliaments into gladiatorial arenas where many confused
issues brawl. With a bit more of this, disorders and
bankruptcy will be universal.
4. Parliaments and Administrative Boards have been turned
into oratorical contests of inexhaustible babblers.
Unscrupulous journalists descend upon executive officials daily.
Abuses of power will be the final touch in preparing all institutions
for their overthrow. Everything will then fall to pieces
under the attacks of angry mobs.
is Our Weapon
5. Due to the ever-present threat of
all people have
been forced into working endlessly. They have been chained by
slavery and serfdom. Well, perhaps they could save enough
money to escape from their daily grind. But they would never
have enough to afford what they really want.
We included some rights for the people into the constitution which are
fictitious and not actual rights. All these so-called
"People’s Rights" can exist only as an idea; an idea which
can never be realized in practical life.
How does it help the low-class laborer if people are given freedom of
speech but only use it to babble? Or if journalists have the
right to scribble any nonsense side by side with good stuff?
The laborer gains nothing from this because he still must work as
before. He gains nothing from the constitution other than the
few pitiful crumbs which we fling at him from our table in exchange for
his voting in favor of what we dictate: in favor of the men we place in
power, who are the servants of our specialist agents.
Constitutional rights for a poor man are no more than a bitter piece of
irony. Because the fact that he must toil almost all day
gives him no time to use them. On the other hand, it robs him
of any guarantee of regular and certain earnings by making him
susceptible to strikes by his comrades or lockouts by his masters.
6. The people, under our guidance, have
aristocracy, who were their one and only defense and foster-mother,
who could have worked for the sake of the people’s advantage,
and who were 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-grubbing scoundrels who have
laid a pitiless and cruel yoke upon the necks of the workers.
7. We appear on the scene as alleged saviors of the worker
from this oppression. Then we propose that he join 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 lawfully enjoyed the labor 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
decline and killing of
Our power is in the chronic shortness of food and physical weakness of
the worker because by this he will become our slave. He will
have neither the strength nor the energy to oppose us. Hunger
surely gives us more authority to rule the worker than the legal
authority given to the aristocracy by the rule of kings.
8. We will highlight the differences of wealth between the
rich and the poor. The emotions of envy and hatred which will
then arise in the poor, due to their want of the wealth, will be
whipped into mob frenzy. Through their hands we shall wipe
out all those who hinder us on our way.
9. When the
hour strikes for
our sovereign lord of the entire world to be crowned, it is these same
hands which will sweep away everything that might be a hindrance to that.
10. 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 that it
is essential to teach in national schools one simple, true piece of
knowledge, the basis of all knowledge, and the knowledge of the
structure of human life, which is that: Social existence requires
division of labor, and consequently, the division of men into classes
It is essential for all to know that owing to differences in the
occupations of humans, there cannot be any equality among them.
Someone that commits an act that compromises a whole class cannot be
held as equally responsible before the law, as compared to someone who
affects only himself.
The true knowledge of the structure of society – secrets
which we keep from the Goyim – would reveal that positions of
work must correspond with the education that was given to a
worker. Otherwise they might suffer.
After a thorough study of this knowledge, people will voluntarily
submit to authority and accept whatever position is given to them in
The people blindly believe what they read in print, and given their
present state of ignorance, they possess a sense of blind hatred toward
anyone who has more wealth or lives in better condition than
themselves. They have no understanding of the purpose of
Will Be Safe
hatred will be still further magnified by the effects of an economic
crisis, which will halt trading on the exchanges
and bring industry to a standstill.
We shall create this crises by all the secret subterranean methods open
to us and with the aid of Gold, which is all in our hands: a
universal economic crises 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 an early age,
and whose property they will then be able to loot.
they will not touch, because the moment of attack will be known to us
and we shall take measures to protect our own.
13. We have demonstrated that progress will bring all the
Goyim to the realm of reason. Our despotism will be precisely
that; for it will know how, by calculated severe measures, to pacify
all unrest, and burn liberalism out of all institutions.
14. When the population realizes that the utopia of communism
is not ‘as advertised’, and that all those promises
of freedom and indulgences of wealth they imagined are not there, they
will find themselves stuck like a blind man on a host of stumbling
15. They have
rushed to find a guide; they never had the sense to return to the
former state and they have laid down their full
sovereign powers at our
feet. Remember the French Revolution,
to which it was we who gave it the prefix of "Great": the secrets of
its preparations are well known to us for it was wholly the work of our
16. At the present day we are, as an international force,
invincible, because if attacked by some State we will be supported by
The Goyim people are rascals who bow down to force, but are merciless
toward weakness in others, unforgiving of their faults, and enjoy
committing crimes. They cannot bear the contradictions of a
free social system, but are willing to become martyrs in the face of
violence of bold despotism. It is those qualities that help
us become independent.
The Goyim people suffer patiently under the abuses of the worst
dictators, even while those dictators would have beheaded twenty of
17. Why is it that the people are willing to put up with such
abuse, and with the execution of their aristocracy?
18. It is because the dictators tell the people that these
abuses they are inflicting are done for 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.
19. 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 turn.
20. 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 finally step into our kingdom, shall have
to erase this word from the language of life; implying that freedom is
a principle of brute force which turns mobs into bloodthirsty beasts.
21. These beasts, it is true, fall asleep again once they
have drunk their fill of blood, and at such time can easily be riveted
into their chains. But if they are not given blood they will
not sleep and will continue to struggle.
Protocol #4 –
Materialism to Replace Religion
1. Every republic passes through several
stages. The first of these is the early days of mad raging by
the blind mob, tossed here and there, to and fro. The second
is demagogy which leads to anarchy and that inevitably leads to
despotism. This is not a legal and observable, and
therefore responsible, type of despotism. Rather
it’s a hidden form of despotism that’s in the hands
secret organization. This organization is unscrupulous
because it works behind the backs of the people using agents who have
no accountability, and who don’t serve the people, only the
organization. These agents are continually changing, and this
benefits the organization because it doesn’t have to give them
special rewards for long times in service.
2. Who or what has the ability to overthrow an invisible
force? Because that is precisely what our Force is.
Gentile-based Freemasonry serves as a smokescreen for us and our
plans. But the plan of action of our Force, even its very
existence, remains an unknown mystery to the people.
3. Even freedom might be harmless and have its
place in our State economy without harming the well-being of the people
if it is based on a faith in God and on the brotherhood of humanity
– providing that it remains disconnected with the concept of
equality. Equality is negated by the very laws of creation,
for these laws have established subordination.
With faith such as this, a people might be governed by a trusteeship of
parishes, and would walk contentedly and humbly under the guiding hand
of its spiritual pastor while submitting to the plans of God upon earth.
This is the reason why it
is essential for us to undermine all faith, to tear out of the mind of
the Goyim and the principle of ‘God the Father, the Son, and
the Holy Spirit’, and to put in its place arithmetical
calculations and material needs.
4. In order to give the Goyim no time to think and notice
what is happening, their minds must be diverted towards industry and
trade. Thus, all the nations will be swallowed up in the
pursuit of gain and, in the race for it, they won’t notice
their common enemy.
But again, in order that freedom may once and for all disintegrate, and
ruin the communities of the Goyim, we must put industry on a
speculative basis. The result of this will be that the wealth
which is mined from the earth will not be invested in productive
industry, but will pass to institutions that deal in speculation
(finance gambling), which are under our ownership.
5. The intensified struggle for superiority and the shocks
delivered to economic life will create, no, have already created,
disenchanted, cold and heartless communities.
Such communities will lose interest in, and foster a strong aversion
toward sound political management and religion. Their only guide will
that of monetary gain, i.e. Gold, which they will erect into a bona
fide cult for the sake of those material delights which it can give.
Then a day of reckoning will come when, not for the sake of
righteousness, not even to win wealth, but solely out of hatred towards
those privileged, the lower classes of the Goyim will follow our lead
and rise against our rivals for power: the intellectuals of the Goyim.
Protocol #5 – Despotism
and Modern Progress
1. What form of administrative rule can be
given to communities in which corruption has penetrated everywhere;
communities where riches are obtained only by the clever surprise
tactics of con artists; where looseness reigns; where morality is
maintained, not by voluntarily accepted principles, but by harsh laws
and strong enforcement; where feelings towards religion and country are
obligated only by fashionable persuasions?
What form of rule is to be given to these communities other than that
despotism which I shall describe to you later? We shall
create a strong central government in order to gain a stranglehold on
We shall thoroughly regulate all aspects of the public life of our
subjects with new laws.
These laws will withdraw, one by one, all the privileges and freedoms
which have been permitted to the Goyim; and our kingdom will be
distinguished by a despotism of such magnificent proportions that, at
any moment and in every place, it will be in a position to wipe out any
Goyim who dares to oppose us, either in words or by actions.
2. You may think that for a despotism of this description to
come into being, it would not be consistent with the progress of
history, and that it could not exist in this modern age. But
I will prove to you that it is, and that it could.
3. Back in the days when the peoples looked at kings on their
thrones, just as they would look upon a pure manifestation of the will
of God, they submitted without a murmur to the despotic power of
kings. But from the day when we placed the concept of their
own rights into their minds they began to regard the occupants of
thrones as mere ordinary mortals.
The god-like charm of the Lord's Anointed has fallen from the heads of
kings in the eyes of the people. And when we also robbed them
of their faith in God, the might of authoritative power fell into the
realm of public ownership, and was then seized by us.
Led By Lies
4. Moreover, the art of directing masses and
individuals by means of cleverly manipulated theory and words, by laws,
and by all sorts of other odd methods: the Goyim understand none of
this because it belongs to the specialists of our collective governing
Reared on analysis, observation, and delicate calculations: in this
type of skill we have no rivals, any more than we have rivals in the
drawing up of plans of political actions and solidarity. In
this respect the Roman Catholic Church might have compared with us, but
we have conspired to discredit them in the eyes of the unthinking mob
since they are an observable organization, while we ourselves have kept
our secret organization in the shade the whole time.
However, it is probably all the same to the world, which
doesn’t really care who its sovereign lord is: whether the
head of Catholicism or our despot of the blood of Zion!
But to us, the Chosen People, it is very far from being a matter of
5. For a time
perhaps, we might be successfully dealt with by a coalition of the
Goyim of the entire world. But we are protected
from this danger by the discord existing among them. Their
loyalties to their own separate groups, races and classes are now so
deeply ingrained that they can never be removed.
We have set one against another: the personal and national beliefs of
the Goyim, religious and race hatreds, which we have fostered into a
huge growth in the course of the past twenty centuries.
This is the reason why there is not one State which would anywhere
receive support if it were to raise its arm, for every one of them must
bear in mind that any agreement against us would be unprofitable to
itself. We are too strong – there is no evading our

come to even an inconsiderable private agreement without our secretly

6. “Per me Reges regnant” is Latin for:
"It is through me that Kings reign." And it was said by the
prophets that we were chosen by God Himself to rule over the whole
earth. God has endowed us with genius so that we may do this
If genius was in an opposing camp it would still struggle against us,
but even so, a newcomer is no match for the old-established settler:
the struggle would be merciless between us, such a fight as the world
has never seen.
Yes, and the genius on their side would have arrived too
late. All the wheels of the machinery of all States go via
the force of the engine, which is in our hands. And that
engine of the machinery of States is - Gold.

placed great value on the importance of money-capital for such a long

flames’, it more important to use it to our advantage than it
to quench it. Finally, it more important to eradicate them.
The principle goal
directors consists of this: to weaken the public mind by criticism; to
lead it away from serious reflections which may arouse calculated
resistance; and to distract the forces of the mind towards meaningless
8. Throughout history the people of the world have accepted
campaign promises at face value. Those people are content with a show
and rarely pause to check afterward whether the promises have been
kept. The same holds true for individuals outside the
Therefore we shall establish ‘Show’ institutions
give eloquent ‘proof’ of their benefit to progress.
9. We shall assume to ourselves to represent the voice of
of all parties, of all directions, and we shall make our representative
be a voice in orators
who will speak so much that they will exhaust the patience of their
hearers and bring about a hatred of oratory.
10. In order
to put public
opinion into our hands we must bring it into a state of bewilderment by
broadcasting so many contradictory opinions from all sides and for such
a long time that it will make the Goyim lose their heads in a maze of
confusion. They will come to realize that the best thing is
have no opinion of any kind in political matters,
when it is intended that the public should not understand the issues
being discussed. In that way the Goyim will leave the
and understanding of the issues to those who guide the
This is the first secret.
11. The second secret necessity for the success of our
consists of the following: To emphasize the national failings of bad
habits, misplaced passions, and troubling conditions of everyday life,
to such an extent that it will be impossible for anyone to know where
he is in the resulting chaos. As a result, the people will
to understand one another.
This measure will also serve us in another way, namely, to sow discord
in all parties, to dislocate all collective forces which are still
unwilling to submit to us, and to discourage any kind of personal
initiative which might hinder our affairs in any way. There is nothing more dangerous
than personal initiative:
if it has genius behind it, such initiative can do more harm than can
be done by millions of people among whom we have sown discord.
We must direct the education of the Goyim communities such that
whenever they come upon a matter requiring initiative they throw up
their hands in despairing impotence. The strain which results
from lack of achievement saps the spirit when compared side-by-side
with the accomplishment of a successful person.
From this comparison arises grave moral shocks, disenchantments and
all these means we shall so wear down the Goyim that they
compelled to offer us international power of a nature that by its
position will enable us without any violence gradually to absorb all
the state forces of the world and to form a super-government.
In place of the rulers of today we shall set up a monstrosity called
the Super-Government Administration. Its tentacles will reach
in all directions like grappling hooks and its organization will be of
such colossal dimensions that it cannot fail to subdue all the nations
of the world.
Protocol #6 – Take-Over
1. We shall soon begin to establish huge
monopolies, reservoirs of colossal riches, upon which even large
fortunes of the Goyim will depend to such an extent that they will go
to the bottom together with the credit of the States on the day after
the political crash...
2. You gentlemen here that are economists, just make an
estimate of the significance of this combination! ...
3. In every possible way, we must show the importance of our
Super-Government by presenting it as the Protector and Benefactor of
all those who voluntarily submit to us.
4. The aristocracy of the Goyim as a political force is
dead. We need not take it into account. But as
landed proprietors they can still be harmful to us from the fact that
they are self-sufficient in the resources upon which they live.
It is essential therefore for us at whatever cost to deprive them of
their land. This object will be best attained by increasing
the burdens upon landed property – by loading lands with
debts. These measures will reduce land ownership and keep it
in a state of humble and unconditional submission.
5. The aristocrats of the Goyim, being incapable of
contenting themselves with little, due to their upbringing, will
rapidly burn up and fizzle out.
6. At the same time we must intensively
promote trade and industry, but, first and foremost,
speculation. The part played by speculation is to suppress
industry. The absence of speculative industry will multiply
capital in private hands and will serve to restore agriculture by
freeing the land from the debts of banks.
What we want is that industry should drain both labor and capital from
the land. Then by means of speculation, transfer all the
money of the world into our hands, and thereby throw all the Goyim into
the ranks of the working class.
Then the Goyim will bow down before us; if for no other reason but to
get the right to exist.
7. To complete the ruin of the industry of the Goyim we shall
bring, to the assistance of speculation, the luxury which we have
encouraged among the Goyim: that greedy demand for luxury which is
swallowing up everything.
We shall raise the
rate of wages. However this will not bring any advantage to
the workers, because at the same time, we shall also cause a rise in
prices of items that are essential to life. We shall claim
that these increases were caused by a decline in agriculture and cattle
breeding. We shall, craftily and thoroughly, further
undermine sources of production, by accustoming the workers to anarchy
and to drunkenness. Additionally we shall take all measures
to uproot all the educated forces of the Goyim from the face of the
8. In order
that the true meaning of things is not discovered by the Goyim before
the proper time, we shall mask it under an alleged enthusiastic desire
to serve the working classes and the great principles of political
economy, which our economic theories carry with much energetic
Protocol #7 – World Wide
1. The increase in size of the military,
police forces, and of their armaments, are all essential for the
completion of the above plans.
The situation we need to arrive at is that the populations of the
world’s nations consist of only: (1) ourselves; (2) the
masses of the working class; (3) a few millionaires devoted to our
interests; and (4) police and soldiers.
2. Throughout all Europe and countries that have relations
with Europe, and in other continents also, we must create unrest,
disagreement and hostility.
This gives us a double advantage. Firstly, it deters
countries from acting against us. For they will know that we
have the power to create disorders or to restore order whenever we
like. All these countries will see us as an unavoidable force
Secondly, if we threaten to withdraw or muddle up our existing
arrangements with these countries, this would also create
havoc. You see, over many years we have inserted ourselves
into the administrative machinery of their cabinets, making them
dependent upon us. In order to infiltrate in this manner we
must involve ourselves in maters like economic treaties or loan
obligations. We need to use great cunning during negotiations
and agreements, but instead of using our usual threatening language,
we’ll instead do the opposite and don the mask of honesty and
In this way the peoples and governments of the Goyim, whom we have
taught to look at only the outside of whatever we present to their
notice, will continue to accept us as the benefactors and saviors of
the human race.
3. If any country dares to oppose us, we must
be in a position to respond by way of war. We will do this by
teaming up with the neighbors of that country. But if those
neighbors should also venture to stand collectively together against
us, then we must resist with a universal war.
4. The main factor of success in politics is to operate in
secrecy. A diplomat must say one thing but then do another.
5. We must compel the governments of the Goyim to take action
in the direction favored by our well thought-out plan, which is nearing
completion, by what we shall claim is public opinion. This
‘opinion’ will be secretly promoted by us through
the means of that so-called "Great Power" – the media, which, apart from a
few unimportant exceptions, is already entirely in our hands.
In order to display our system of keeping the governments of the Goyim
in Europe in check, we shall show our strength by committing terrorist
attacks against one of them. If the governments of Europe
should collectively rise against us, we shall respond using the
military might of America or China or Japan.
Protocol #8 –
1. We must arm ourselves with all the weapons which our
use against us.
We need to make our actions look valid and proper from a legal
view-point. Occasionally we’ll pronounce judgments
that might appear biased or unjust. So we need to brush up on
our legal-poetry to make our arguments sound convincing because
it’s important that we get our judgments passed. We
will use expressions that sound like the most exalted moral principles
converted into a legal form.
Our directors must surround themselves with everyone that they need to
do their work. They will surround themselves with publicists,
practical jurists, administrators, diplomats and, finally, with persons
prepared by a special super-educational training in our special schools.
These persons will have a clear understanding of the secrets of how
society works; they will understand the special language of politics,
and how that language can be manipulated; they will be made acquainted
with the whole underside of human nature, with all its weaknesses and
sensitive ‘chords’ upon which they will need to
These chords represent the mind-set of the Goyim; their tendencies,
short-comings, vices and qualities, and the particularities of their
classes and conditions. Needless to say that the talented
assistants of authority, of whom I speak, will not be selected from
among the Goyim, who are accustomed to doing their administrative work
without ever troubling themselves to think about what it’s
for or why it’s needed.
The administrators of the Goyim sign papers without reading
them. These administrators serve us either for their pay or
for personal ambition.
2. We shall surround our government with a whole world of
economists. That is the reason why economic sciences are the
main subject that is taught to the Jews.
Around us again will be a whole constellation of bankers,
industrialists, capitalists and – the main thing –
millionaires. Because for the main part, everything will be settled by
the question of large amounts of money.
3. For the time being, until we get to the point where there
is no longer any risk in entrusting responsible positions in our State
to our brother-Jews, we shall put them in the hands of persons who have
a criminal past and have shown little regard for the welfare of the
people. Persons who, if they disobey our instructions, must
face criminal charges or disappear. In this way we will make
them defend our interests to their last gasp.
Protocol #9 –
1. In applying our principles, take note of
the character of the people in whose country you live and
act. We must adjust our methods to suit because a general,
identical application of our principles to all cultures cannot succeed
– at least not until the people have been re-educated to
conform to our pattern.
But by approaching their application cautiously you will see that, in
less than a decade, even the most stubborn character will change and we
shall add a new people to the ranks of those already subdued by us.
2. The words of the libertarian, "Liberty, Equality,
Fraternity", which are really just rallying cries invented by us, will,
when we come into our kingdom, be changed by us into words that are no
longer used to rally support, but only an expression of idealism,
namely, into "The right of liberty, the duty of equality, the ideal of
That’s how we shall put it – we shall catch the
bull by the horns and turn those words to our advantage. We
have effectively already wiped out every kind of rule except our own,
although legally there still remains quite a lot of them.
Nowadays, if any States protests against us it is only done according
to our planning, at our discretion and by our direction, for their
anti-Semitism is an essential way for us to manage our lesser brethren
I won’t talk further on this topic, because the matter has
already been discussed many times.
3. There is nothing to limit the range of our
activities. Our Super-Government exists within special-legal conditions
which are commonly referred to by the energetic and forcible word
I am in a position to tell you with a clear conscience that when the
time is right we, the law-givers, shall execute judgment and sentence:
we shall slay and we shall spare. We, as head of all our
troops, are following the lead of our dynamic ruler. We rule
by force of will, because in our hands are the fragments of a once
powerful party, now vanquished by us.
And the weapons in
our hands are limitless ambitions, burning greediness, merciless
vengeance, hatreds and malice.
4. It is from
us that the all-engulfing terror proceeds. We have at our
service persons of all opinions, of all doctrines, restorative
monarchists, demagogues, socialists, communists, and utopian dreamers
of every kind.
We have harnessed them all to the task: each one of them is independently
chiseling away at the last remnants of authority, is striving to
overthrow all established forms of order.
By these acts, all States are experiencing torture; they cry out for
tranquility and are ready to sacrifice everything for peace: but we will not give them peace
until they openly acknowledge our international super-government, and
5. The people have howled about the necessity of
the issue of Socialism by way of an international agreement.
Their division into
political parties has given us control over them, because in order to
carry on a contested struggle one must have money, and the money is all
in our hands.
6. We might have reason to prevent a union forming between
the "clear-sighted" force of the Goy kings on their thrones and the
"blind" force of the Goy mobs. But we have taken all
necessary measures against any such possibility: between the one and
the other force we have erected a wall in the form of a mutual terror
In this way the blind force of the people remains in our side and we,
and we only, shall provide them with a leader and, of course, direct
them along the road that leads to our goal.
7. In order that the hand of the blind mob may not free
itself from our guiding hand, we must every now and then enter into a
close rapport with them, either in person or through some of the most
trusty of our brethren.
Once we are acknowledged as the only authority, we shall discuss with
the people personally on the market, places, and we shall instruct them
on how to enter into politics in such a way as may turn them in the
direction that suits us.
8. Who is going to verify what is taught in the village
schools? We cannot allow the words of government
representatives, or of a king himself to become immediately known to
the whole State, because it will be spread far and wide by the voice of
9. In order to destroy the educational institutions of the
Goyim while we still can, we have infiltrated them with great cunning,
and we have taken hold of their syllabuses.
Their syllabuses were once laid out in careful consideration; but we
have replaced them by the chaotic ideas of liberalism. We have got our
hands into the administration of the law, into the conduct of
elections, into the press, into liberty of the person, but principally into education
and training as being the cornerstones of a free existence.
have fooled, bemused and corrupted the youth of the Goyim by rearing
them in principles and theories which are known to us to be false, and
we have taught this through repetition.
11. We have taken the existing laws and have twisted them
into contradictions of interpretations without substantially altering
them. Doing this has produced wonderful results.
These results are that these laws were effectively destroyed, owing to
the fact that the interpretations
of the law masked the intent of the law.
Eventually these interpretations entirely hid these laws from the eyes
of the governments owing to the impossibility of making anything out of
the tangled web of legislation.
12. This is the origin of the theory of arbitration.
13. You may say that the Goyim will rise up against us, guns
in hand, if they guess what is going on before the time comes for our
complete domination. But in the West we have a maneuver
against this of such appalling terror that would cause even the very
hardest of hearts to convulse: the undergrounds, those subterranean
corridors which lie beneath the capitals; before the time comes, those
capitals will be blown into the air with all their organizations and
Protocol #10 – Preparing
1. Today I begin with a repetition of what I
said before, and I beg
you to bear in mind that governments and people are content with the
outside appearances of their political process.
And how, indeed, are the Goyim to see the deeper meaning of things when
their representatives are mainly focused on enjoying
themselves? For our policy, it is of the greatest importance
to be aware of this fact; it will be of assistance to us when we come
to consider how to delegate the proper authority in matters of
property, of housing, of taxation (including the idea of concealed
taxes), and of the automatic enforcement of the laws.
All these questions are such that they should not be touched upon or
debated directly in public. In cases where it is necessary to
touch upon them, the details of those cases must not be specifically
discussed. It must merely be declared that the principles of
current law are acknowledged by us.
The reason for remaining silent in this respect is that by not naming a
principle we leave ourselves some freedom, to drop this or that out of
it without attracting notice. If the principles of law we
were supposed to be following were all categorically named they would
appear to have been proven true.
2. The mob cherishes a special affection and respect for the
geniuses of political power and accepts all their deeds of violence
with the admiring response: "Unscrupulous?, well, yes, it is
unscrupulous, but it's clever! ... a mischievous trick, if you like,
but how craftily played, how magnificently done, what barefaced
Goal: World Power
3. We depend upon attracting all nations to
the task of building our new political structure. The project
plan for this has been drawn up by us.
This is why, before everything, it is essential for us to arm ourselves
and to install in ourselves that absolutely reckless daring and
unstoppable motivation which will break down all hindrances on our way.
4. When we
have accomplished our government overthrow we shall then say to the
various peoples: "Everything has gone terribly wrong.
Everyone has been worn out with suffering. We are destroying
the causes of your torment – nationalities, borders,
different currencies. You are free, of course, to pronounce
sentence upon us, but can it possibly be a just one if you pronounce it
before you properly try out what we are offering you?" ...
Then the mob will praise us and give us their support in a unanimous
triumph of hopes and expectations. Voting, which we have made
the instrument that will set us on the throne of the world by teaching
even the very smallest units of members of the human race to vote by
means of meetings and agreements by groups, will then have served its
purposes and will play its part then for the last time by a unanimity
of desire to make close acquaintance with us before condemning us.
5. To secure
this we must have everybody vote without regard to their social class
or qualifications, in order to establish an absolute
majority, which can’t get from the educated wealthy classes.
In this way, by impressing in all a sense of self-importance, we shall
destroy among the Goyim the importance of the family and its
educational value and remove the possibility of individual minds
splitting off, because the mob majority, who is handled by us, will not
let them come to the front nor even give them a hearing; it is
accustomed to listen to us only who pay it for obedience and attention.
In this way we shall create a blind, mighty force which will never be
in a position to move in any direction without the guidance of our
agents set at its head by us as leaders of the mob. The
people will submit to this regime because it knows that it will depend
upon these leaders for its earnings, gratifications and the receipt of
all kinds of benefits.
6. A scheme of government should come ready made from one
brain, because it will never be clinched firmly if it is allowed to be
split into fractional parts in the minds of many.
It is allowable, therefore, for us to have knowledge of the scheme of
action but not to discuss it lest we disturb its cunning, the
interdependence of its component parts, and the practical force behind
the secret meaning of each clause.
To discuss and make alterations in this manner by means of much voting
gives those alterations the appearance of have being arrived at by the
process of logical and methodical reasoning. And any
misunderstandings of these alterations will prevent the public from
seeing into the next connected link of our scheme.
We want our schemes to be forcible and suitably devised.
Therefore we ought not
to let our well thought-out plans be revealed to the
public as a whole or even to a select group of them.
7. These schemes will not turn existing institutions upside
down just yet. They will only effect changes in their economy
and consequently in the whole combined movement of their progress,
which will then be directed along the paths laid down in our schemes.
Poison of Liberalism
8. In each country there exists a group of
governing bodies. They go under various names but they are
essentially the same thing, namely the: Representation, Ministry,
Senate, State Council, Legislative and Executive Corps.
I needn’t explain how these institutions relate to one
another, because you are aware of all that. But take note of
the fact that each of the above-named institutions corresponds to some
important function of the State; and by "important" I don’t
mean the institution, but its function. I.e. it’s
not the institutions that are important but their functions.
These institutions have divided up among themselves all the functions
of government – administrative, legislative, executive; and
they operate together in much the same way as organs in the human body.
If we injure one part in the machinery of State, the State falls sick,
like a human body, and ... will die.
9. When we introduced into the State organism the poison of
Liberalism its whole political complexion changed. States
have been seized with a mortal illness – a blood
poisoning. All that remains is to await the end of their
10. Liberalism produced Constitutional States, which took
the place of what was the only safeguard of the Goyim, namely,
Despotism. And a
constitution, as you well know, is nothing but a system of strife,
misunderstandings, quarrels, disagreements, fruitless party agitations,
party whims – in a word, a system of everything that serves
to destroy the personality of State activity.
The tribe of the
"talking heads" has, no less effectively than the press, condemned
the rulers to inactivity and impotence, and thereby
rendered them useless and superfluous, and this is the reason why they
have been removed from office in many countries.
At that point the
era of republics could come into being; and then we replaced the ruler
with a mockery of a government – by a president, taken from
the mob, from the midst of our puppet creatures, or slaves.
This was the foundation of the time-bomb which we have placed under the
Goy people, or I should rather say, under the Goy peoples.
11. Soon we shall assign the duties of presidents.
12. By that time we shall be in a position to disregard the
procedures normally required to accomplish our necessary tasks because
our impersonal puppet will be able do it directly.
What do we care if the ranks of those striving for power should be
weakened, if a deadlock arises from the impossibility of finding
presidents – a deadlock which will finally disorganize the
13. In order that our scheme may produce this result we shall
arrange elections in favor of such presidents who have some dark,
undiscovered disgrace in their past, some sinister secret –
then they will be trustworthy agents for the accomplishment of our
plans out of fear of revelations and from the natural desire of
everyone who has attained power, namely, the retention of the
privileges, advantages and honor connected with the office of president.
The chamber of deputies will provide cover for, will protect, and will
elect presidents; but we shall take from it the right to propose new
laws, or make changes to existing laws, for this right will be given by
us to the president responsible, who is a really just puppet in our
Naturally, the authority of the presidents will then become a target
for every possible form of attack. But we shall provide him
with a means of self-defense in the right of an appeal to the
people. The decision of the people outranks the decision of
the representatives who may wish to oppose the president. So
that appeal will go to a blind slave of ours – the majority
of the mob.
Independently of this we shall give the president the right of
declaring a state of war. We shall justify this last right on
the ground that the president, as chief of the whole army of the
country, must have access to that right, in case he needs to defend the
new republican constitution. That right to defend will belong
to him as the responsible representative of this constitution.
14. It should be easy to understand that under these
conditions, the ‘magic lamp’ will be in our hands,
and no one other than us will any longer have control over determining
15. Besides this we shall, with the introduction of the new
republican constitution, take from the Chamber the right of inserting
new legislation on government measures, on the pretext of preserving
national security, and further, we shall use the new constitution to
reduce the number of representatives to a minimum, thereby
proportionately reducing political passions and the passion for
If, however, these passions should burst into flame, which is hardly to
be expected, not even to a small degree, we shall nullify them by a
stirring appeal and making a reference to the majority opinion of the
voting population ... The president will have the power to appoint the
presidents and vice-presidents of the Chamber and the Senate.
Instead of constant sessions of Parliaments we shall reduce their
sittings to a few months. Moreover, the president, as chief
of the executive power, will have the right to summon and dissolve
Parliament, and, in the latter case, to prolong the time for the
appointment of a new parliamentary assembly.
These presidential actions may be considered illegal, and as a result,
the representatives and public might then start attacking the
president. This could be a problem for our plans if it
happened prematurely. In order to avoid the blame from being
pushed onto the president, we
shall encourage ministers and other officials of the higher
administration to evade his plans by taking actions of their own.
In doing so they will be made scapegoats in his place. This
part we especially recommend should be played by the Senate, the
Council of State, or the Council of Ministers, but not by an individual
16. The president will, at our discretion, interpret the
meaning of existing laws and point out that there are already various
interpretations of them; he will further annul them when we indicate to
him the necessity to do so. Besides this, he will have the
right to propose temporary laws, and even new departures in the
government’s constitutional working. The pretext
both for doing these things will be the requirements for the supreme
welfare of the State.
17. By these actions we shall obtain the power
of destroying the constitutions of the States. We shall do
this by introducing into those constitutions, little by little, step by
step, all those things which we have determined are our rights from the
outset. This will cause an imperceptible abolition of every
kind of constitution, and then the time will have come to turn every
form of government into our
18. The recognition of our despot may also come before the
destruction of the constitution; the moment for this recognition will
come when the peoples, utterly wearied by the irregularities and
incompetence – a matter which we shall have arranged for
– will exclaim of their rulers:
"Away with them and give us one king over all the earth who will unite
us and annihilate the causes of disorders - frontiers, nationalities,
religions and State debts – who will give us peace and quiet
which we cannot find under our rulers and representatives."
19. But you yourselves know perfectly well that to produce the possibility of the
expression of such wishes by all the nations it is necessary to trouble
the people's relations with their governments in all countries to such
a degree that it will utterly exhaust humanity with dissension, hatred,
struggle, envy and even by the use of torture, by starvation, by the
spreading of diseases, or extreme poverty. As a result of
this, the Goyim will see no other solution than to take refuge in our
complete sovereignty, in our money and in all else that we offer.
20. But if we give the nations of the world a breathing
space, the moment we long for is hardly ever likely to arrive.
Protocol #11 – The
1. The State Council has been a clear-cut symbol of the
authority of the ruler: it will represent the "show" part of the
Legislative Corps, who will be in charge of putting the laws and
decrees into writing.
2. This is now the program of the new constitution.
We shall make Laws, Rights and Justice: (1) in the form of proposals to
the Legislative Corps, (2) by decrees of the president under the guise
of general regulations, (3) by orders of the Senate (4) by resolutions
of the State Council in the guise of ministerial orders, (5) and in
case a suitable occasion should arise – in the form of a
revolution within the State.
3. Now that we’ve basically established how
we’re going to operate, let’s look into the details
of what we need to do to complete the revolution by moving the various
State departments in the appropriate direction.
These details will involve knowing how to use and manipulate many
political aspects, including: the freedom of the Press, the right of
association, freedom of conscience, the voting principle, and many
other things which must forever disappear from people’s
memories – or which must undergo a radical alteration the day
after the new constitution is officially announced.
We need to introduce many new laws, and the best time to announce them
is now rather than later. The reason for this is, if we bring
in new laws after the time when we have fully come into power then
people will be fearful of them and may reject them. Because
after that time there will be a period of harsh severity and
limitations, and any additional restrictive laws will make the people
feel that things are just getting worse.
If the only way to bring in these new laws is to discard some of our
existing laws, this will give the wrong impression, like we have
recognized our own wrong-doing. This will damage our image as
a figure of faultless authority. We’ll get no
thanks for this because people will assume that backing-off is our duty.
Both of the two above scenarios would damage the prestige of the new
constitution. From the moment it is announced, and while the
peoples of the world are still stunned by the fact that a revolution
has taken place and are still in a condition of terror and uncertainty,
what we want is that they should recognize once for all that we are so
strong, so unbeatable, so super-abundantly filled with power, that in
no case shall we take any of their objections into
consideration. And that we are so far from paying any
attention to their opinions or wishes, that we are ready and able to
crush all forms of expression with irresistible power. At
every moment and in every place we will have seized everything we
wanted all at once, and in no case shall we share our power with them...
Then in fear and trembling they will close their eyes to everything,
and be content to await what will be the end of it all.
4. The Goyim are a flock of sheep, and we are
their wolves. And you know what happens when the wolves get
hold of the flock? ...
5. There is also another reason why they will close their
eyes: for we shall keep promising to give back all the liberties that
we have taken away from them; just as soon as we have defeated what we
claim are the enemies of peace and have everyone under control...
6. It is not worth saying anything about how long they will
be kept waiting for this return of their liberties...
7. Why have we invented this whole policy and cunningly
inserted it into the minds of the Goy without giving them any chance to
examine its underlying meaning?
And why have we taken such a roundabout way to obtain things for our
scattered tribe (of Jews)? Well, because we
couldn’t have done it directly.
This has served as the basis for our organization of secret Freemasonry which is not
known to, and has aims which are not even so much as suspected by, the
Goy. These Goy cattle are attracted by us into the "show"
army of Masonic lodges in order feel superior to, and look down upon
their fellow Goys.
8. God has granted to us, His Chosen People, the gift of
spreading ourselves widely throughout the world. To most
people this appears to be our weakness. But as it happens,
this has brought forth our strength and we are now on the threshold of
sovereignty over the entire world.
9. There is not much remaining for us to do in terms of
building up the foundation which we have laid for our plans.
Protocol #12 – Control
of the Media
1. The word "freedom" which can be interpreted in various
ways, is defined by us as follows:
2. Freedom is the right to do what the law allows.
This interpretation of the word will, at the proper time, be of service
to us because all freedom will then be in our hands; since the laws
will abolish or create only what is desirable for us according to the
3. We shall deal with the media in the following
way: What is the role played by the media today? It
sometimes serves to excite and inflame those passions which are needed
for our purpose, and at other times it serves the selfish desires of
It is often bland, unjust, dishonest, and the majority of the public
haven’t the slightest idea what purpose the media really
serves. We shall saddle and bridle it with a tight
chain. We shall also do the same with all other productions
of the printing press; for what would be the sense of getting rid of
attacks from newspapers if we remain targets via pamphlets and books?
The output of the media is nowadays a source of heavy expense owing to
the necessity of censoring it. We will turn it into a very
lucrative source of income to our State by laying a special stamp tax
on it and requiring deposits of caution-money before permitting any new
media companies from being established. They will then be
required to guarantee our government against any kind of attack from
For any attempt to attack us (if that’s still possible) we
shall inflict fines without mercy. Such measures as stamp
tax, deposit of caution-money and fines secured by these deposits, will
bring in a huge income to the government.
It is true that political groups which have money to spare might still
attack us for the sake of publicity regardless of these
fines. But these we shall shut up at the second attack upon
us. No one shall lay a finger on the aura of our government
infallibility without being punished.
The pretext for stopping any publication will be the alleged plea that
it is agitating the public mind without good reason or at an
inappropriate time. I
beg you to note that among those making
attacks upon us will also be entities established by us; but they will
only attack points of our plan which we have already decided to alter.
Control the Media
a single announcement will reach the public without our control.
Even now this is being achieved by us due to the fact that all news
items are received by only a few agencies, and their offices are a
focal point for news coming in from all parts of the world.
These agencies will already be entirely owned by us and will only
publish what we dictate to them.
5. We have effectively taken possession of the minds of the
Goy communities to such an extent that they have all come to look upon
the events of the world through the colored glasses which we have
placed on their noses.
Already now there is not a single State which has barriers preventing
us from gaining access to what Goyim stupidity call “State
secrets”. What will our positions be when we are
acknowledged as supreme lords of the world, and have one of our persons
as the king of all the world...
6. Let’s turn again to the future of the printing press.
Every one desirous of being a publisher, librarian, or printer, will be
obliged to first acquire a special license for that purpose, which in
case of any fault, will be immediately suspended.
With such measures the
thoughts of the people will be under the control of our government, who
will educate them appropriately, and won’t allow the masses
to be led along different paths and by fantasies about the blessings of
All of us here know that these delusional blessings give rise to
fanciful dreaming which leads to anarchy among the people and towards
authority. This is a bad thing because progress, or rather
the idea of progress, has brought forth all sorts of ideas about
gaining freedom, but has failed to establish its limits...
All the so-called libertarians are anarchists, either in thought or in
reality. Every one of them, in hunting for the phantoms of
freedom, ends up involved in anarchy, and protests for the sake of
7. We turn now to the periodical
press. We shall impose on it, and on all printed matter,
stamp taxes per sheet and deposits of caution-money.
Books of less than 30 sheets will pay double. We shall
classify them as pamphlets for two reasons: firstly to reduce the
number of magazines, because these are the worst form of printed
poison, and secondly, to force writers to make such lengthy productions
that they will be little read, especially seeing that they will also be
At the same time what we shall publish pamphlets ourselves to influence
mental development in the desired direction. Our publications
will be cheap and eagerly read. This will
bring us some profits.
The tax will bring uninteresting literary ambitions within reach and
the risk of possible penalties will make literary men dependent upon us.
And if anyone is desirous of writing against us – they will
not find any person eager to put their productions in print because the
publisher or printer will first have to apply to the authorities for
permission to do so.
Thus we shall have advanced knowledge of all tricks being preparing
against us and shall nullify them by getting in ahead with our
explanations on the subject being discussed.
8. Literature and journalism are two of the most important
educative forces, and therefore our government will become proprietor
of the majority of the journals.
This will neutralize the injurious influence of the privately-owned
press and will put us in possession of a tremendous influence upon the
public mind... If we give permits for ten privately-owned
journals, we shall establish thirty journals of our own, and so forth
in the same proportion.
This, however, must in no way be suspected by the public. For
this reason all journals published by us will be very opposite, in
appearance, tendencies and opinions to our official stance.
This will create confidence in our journals, bringing over to us quite
unsuspicious opponents, who will thus fall into our trap and be
We will divide our media components into three layers or
9. In the front rank will be publications of an official
character. They will always stand guard over our interests,
and therefore their influence will be comparatively insignificant.
10. In the second rank will be the semi-official
publications, whose part it will be to normally support us and
sometimes criticize us, but only over issues of lukewarm importance.
11. In the third rank we shall set up what looks like our own
opposing camp, which, in at least one of its publications, will present
what looks like the very enemy of us. Our real opponents at
heart will accept this simulated opposition as their own and will
reveal their identities and plans to us.
12. Our newspapers will be of all possible complexions
– aristocratic, republican, revolutionary, even anarchical
– for only as long, of course, as the constitution
exists... Like the Indian idol "Vishnu" they will have a
hundred hands, and every one of them will have a finger on any one of
the public opinions as required.
When an emotive issue arises, these hands will lead opinion in the
direction of our aims; for an excited person loses all power of
judgment and easily yields to suggestion. Those fools who
will think they are repeating the opinion of a newspaper of their own
camp will actually be repeating our opinion or any opinion that seems
desirable for us.
In the vain belief that they are following the ideology of their party
they will, in fact, be following the flag that we have hang out for
13. In order to direct our newspaper militia in this way we
must take special and minute care in organizing this matter.
Under the title of Central Department of the Media we shall arrange
literary gatherings at which our agents will, without attracting
attention, issue the orders and specify the ‘important
issues’ of the day which journalists need to cover.
By superficially discussing and opposing, but without touching the
essence of the matter, our appointed people will carry on sham fights
and arguments with the official newspapers solely for the purpose of
giving us a reason to express ourselves more fully than we could have
done from the outset in official announcements, whenever of course
that is to our advantage.
attacks upon us will also serve another purpose, namely, that our
subjects will be convinced of the existence of full freedom of speech
and this gives our agents an occasion to claim that all publications
which oppose us are empty babblers, since they are
incapable of finding any substantial objections to our orders.
15. Methods of organization like these, which
are imperceptible to the public eye but are sure to work, are
calculated as being the best way to succeed in bringing the attention
and the confidence of the public to the side of our government.
Thanks to such methods we shall be in a position, as may be required
from time to time, to excite or calm the public mind on political
questions, to persuade or to confuse, sometimes printing truth,
sometimes lies, facts or their contradictions. We will do
this according to how well these messages are received, and always very
cautiously feeling the ground before stepping upon it...
We shall have an
assured victory over our opponents since they will not have the
appropriate access to the media in which they can give full and final
expression to their views owing to the above-mentioned
methods of dealing with the media.
We shall not even need to refute them except very superficially.
16. Trial shots like these, fired by us in the third rank of
our press, will, when necessary, be energetically refuted by us in our
17. Even nowadays, already, to take only the French press as
an example, there are groups which reveal Masonic-like solidarity in
acting together on the ‘important issues’: all
people of the media are bound together by professional secrecy; and
like the priests of ancient Rome, not one of them will give away the
secret of his sources of information unless the group agrees upon it.
Not one journalist will venture to betray this secret, for not one of
them is ever admitted to practice journalism unless his whole past has
some dark and disgraceful secret in it... For if he did, these secrets
would be immediately revealed.
So long as they remain the secret of a few, the prestige of the
journalist allows him to attack the majority of the country –
and the mob will follow after him with enthusiasm.
18. Our mischievous plans are also designed to apply to the
rural areas. It is essential for us to stir up there, those
hopes and impulses which, at any moment, we could also stir up in the
major cities. We shall tell the people of those cities that
these expressions are the independent hopes and impulses of the rural
Naturally, the source of them will be always one and the same
– ours. What
we need is that, until such time as we have the majority of power, the
cities should find themselves stifled by the provincial opinion of the
nations, i.e., of a majority arranged by our agents.
What we need at that psychological moment is that the city-capitals
should not discuss our position of majority power for no other reason
than it has already been accepted by the public opinion of a majority
19. When we
are in the period of the new regime, but prior to the assumption of our
full sovereignty, we must not allow any revelation by the media to
admit to any form of public dishonesty. It is necessary that
the new regime should be thought to have so perfectly contended
everybody that even criminality has disappeared...
Occurrences of criminality should remain known only to the victims and
to chance witnesses – no one else.
Protocol #13 –
1. We need the Goyim to keep silent and be our humble
When we hire Goyim to work at our media companies, we might order them
to discuss things which are inconvenient for us to discuss directly via
our official documents. They will raise a din of discussion
and create a distraction which will allow us to quietly introduce the
laws we want and then present them to the public as an accomplished
No one will dare to demand the cancellation of a law that
we’ve put forth, especially since it will be presented as an
improvement... And immediately afterward, the media will
distract the current of thought towards new issues. After
all, haven’t we trained people always to be always seeking
The brainless dispensers of opinions and forecasts will then throw
themselves into the discussions of these new issues. Even now
those people are not able to understand that they don’t have
the remotest conception about the matters which they have chosen to
discuss. Political issues are incomprehensible to all except
those who have guided it already for many ages; namely, the creators of
2. From all this you will see that the apparent public
opinion is that we are only carrying out the necessary functions of the
government. And you may notice that it is not our actions but
our words which seem to be more important when seeking approval.
We are constantly making public declarations claiming that we are
guided in all
that we do, by the hope and conviction that we are serving the common
good in solving their problems.
3. Some people may be problematic for us in
the way that they discuss political issues. In order to
distract these people we are now putting forward what we allege to be
new political issues, namely, questions of industry. In this
arena let them discuss themselves silly!
The masses have agreed to remain inactive; to take a rest from what
they suppose are political actions – and we trained them to
do this in order to use them as a means of combating the Goy
governments. They will remain this way only on condition of
being found new activities, and we are prescribing them something which
looks like the same political goal.
In order that the masses don’t figure out what they are
really doing we will
further distract them with amusements, games, pastimes, passions,
luxury homes... Via the media, we shall soon begin to propose
competitions in art, and in sport of all kinds: these
interests will finally distract their minds from asking questions which
we would definitely not want to answer.
Growing more and more unaccustomed to reflect and form any opinions of
their own, people will begin to talk in the same manner as we do
because we alone shall be offering them new directions for
thought... Of course we will do this through persons who will
not be suspected of working alongside us.
4. The part played by the libertarians and utopian dreamers
will be finally come to an end when our government is
acknowledged. Up until that time they will continue to do us
Therefore we shall continue to direct their minds to all sorts of vain
conceptions of fantastic theories that are new and apparently
progressive: For we have completely and successfully
attracted the brainless minds of the Goyim with the pursuit of
progress, to the point where there is not one Goyim mind able to
perceive that under this word lies a departure from truth in all
cases. With the exception of material inventions, progress is
an illusory idea which serves to obscure truth. Nobody knows
this truth except us, the Chosen of God, and we are its guardians.
5. When we finally come into our kingdom our orators will
talk about the great problems which had turned humanity upside down,
and how these problems were brought an end under our beneficent rule.
6. Who will ever suspect then that all these peoples were
stage-managed by us according to a political plan which no one has so
much as guessed at in the course of many centuries?
Protocol #14 – Assault
1. When we come into our kingdom we don’t want any
other than ours to exist: our religion of the One God with whom our
destiny is bound up by our position as the Chosen People, and through
whom our same destiny is united with the destinies of the world.
We must therefore sweep away all other forms of belief. If
gives birth to the atheists whom we see today, it will not interfere
with our views because it is only a transitional stage. But
will serve as a warning for future generations who will listen to our
preaching of the religion of Moses, which, by its stable and thoroughly
elaborated system, has brought all the peoples of the world into our
In this we shall emphasize its mystical right, on which we shall say
all its educative power is based... Then at every possible
opportunity we shall publish articles in which we shall make
comparisons between our beneficent rule and those of past ages.
The blessing of tranquility, even though it is a tranquility forcibly
brought about by centuries of strife, will highlight the benefits of
our system of government, and we shall point out these
The errors of the Goyim governments will be depicted by us in the most
We shall implant such an abhorrence of them that the peoples will
prefer tranquility in a state of serfdom to those overemphasized rights
of freedom which have tortured humanity and exhausted the very sources
of human existence; sources which have been exploited by a mob of
rascally adventurers who don’t know what they’re
in types of
government, which we forced on the Goyim when we were undermining their
state structures, will have so wearied the peoples by that time, that
they will prefer to suffer anything under us rather than run the risk
of again enduring all the misery and strife they have already been
2. At the same time we shall not forget to
historical mistakes of the Goy governments which have tormented
humanity for so many centuries by their lack of understanding of
everything that constitutes the true good of humanity in their pursuit
of ill-conceived schemes of socialist blessings. These
governments have never noticed that these schemes kept on producing a
worse, and never a better, state of the universal relations which are
the basis of human life...
3. The whole strength of our principles and methods will lie
the fact that we shall present them in great detail as a splendid
alternative to the, dead and decomposed, old way of doing things in
4. Our philosophers will discuss all the shortcomings of the
various beliefs of the Goyim,
but no one will ever bring our faith from its true point of view under
discussion since this will be fully learned only by ourselves and we
will never dare to betray its secrets.
countries known as progressive and enlightened we have created
senseless, filthy, abominable literature.
For some time after our entrance to power we shall continue to
encourage its existence in order to provide some relief in contrast to
the speeches and party politics which will be distributed from our
Our wise men, trained to become leaders of the Goyim, will compose
speeches, presentations, memoirs and articles. These will be
by us to influence the minds of the Goyim, directing them towards
certain types of knowledge and conclusions which have been determined
Protocol #15 – Ruthless
1. We shall come into our kingdom by the aid of a sudden
overthrow of a government; done by our small group and carried out
everywhere at once and all within a single day. It may be a
while before this takes place, perhaps even a whole century.
But when at last this definitely happens, and has been definitely
acknowledged, we shall make it our job to see that things such as plots
against us shall no longer exist.
With this purpose we shall slay without mercy all who take up arms to
oppose our coming into our kingdom. Every kind of new
institution which is anything like a secret society will also be
punished with death. Those of them which are now in existence
are known to us – they serve us and have served us.
dissolve these and send their members into exile to continents far
removed from Europe.
In this way we
shall deal with those Goy Masons who know too much; some
of whom we may spare for some reason, and they will be kept in constant
fear of exile.
We shall formally declare a law making all former members of secret
societies liable to exile from Europe which will be the center of our
2. Resolutions of our government will be final, and without
3. The disagreement and Protestantism we planted in the Goy
societies has now taken deep root. The only possible way of
restoring order is to employ merciless measures that prove the
effectiveness of the direct force of authority. No concern
must be given to the victims who fall – they suffer
for the well-being
of the future.
Achieving that state of well-being, even at the expense of sacrifices,
is the duty of any kind of government that acknowledges as
justification for its existence, not only its privileges but its
The best way to guarantee stability of rule is to reinforce the aura of
power, and this aura is gained only by displaying such a convincing
stubbornness of might that it shall carry the banner of invincibility
from mystical causes on its face – from the choice of God.
It was like this
recent times, when the Russian autocracy was the one and only serious
had in the world, not counting the Pope.
Bear in mind the example when Italy, drenched with blood, never touched
a hair on the head of Sulla who had poured forth that blood: Sulla
enjoyed a god-like status for the might in him, but his fearless return
to Italy made him appear sacred and invincible.
The people do not lay a finger on someone who hypnotizes them by his
daring and mental strength.
4. Meanwhile, however, before we come into our
kingdom, we shall act in the contrary way: we shall create and multiply
Free Masonic lodges in all the countries of the world and bring all
types of people into them – people who may become or who are
already prominent in public activity. In these lodges we
shall find our principal intelligence office and means of influence.
We shall bring all these lodges under one central administration which
known to us alone and absolutely unknown to all others, and which will
be composed of our learned elders. The lodges will have their
representatives who will serve to screen the above-mentioned
administration of Masonry and who will issue the watchword and program.
In these lodges we shall tie the knot which binds together all
revolutionary and liberal elements. They will come from all
levels of society. The most secret political plots will be
known to us and fall under our guiding hands on the very day of their
Among the members
of these lodges will be almost all the agents of international and
national police since their service for us is
irreplaceable based on the fact that the police are in a position to
not only use their own particular measures with members who are
insubordinate, but also to screen our activities and provide pretexts
for discontents, etc.
5. The classes of people who most willingly enter into secret
societies are those who live by their wits, the career-seeking types,
and in general, mostly light-minded people, with whom we shall have no
difficulty in dealing with and in using to wind up the mechanism of the
machine devised by us.
If this world grows agitated it is because we have had to stir it up in
order to break up its too great solidarity. But if a plot should arise in its
midst, then the person in charge of that plot will be none other than
one of our most trusted servants.
It is natural that no one else other than us should lead Masonic activities,
for we know where we are heading; we know the final goal of every type
of activity. Whereas the Goyim have knowledge of nothing; not
even of the immediate effect of an action. They usually only
consider the momentary satisfaction which comes from the accomplishment
of their thoughts. They don’t notice that their
thoughts didn’t arise from their own initiative but from
ideas which we planted in their heads...
6. The Goyim enter the lodges out of curiosity
or in the hope (by using their resources) of getting a piece of the
public pie; and some of them in order to obtain a hearing before the
public for their impracticable and groundless fantasies: they thirst
for the emotion of success and applause, and we always generously
And the reason why we give them this success is that it gives them an
overrated opinion of themselves, which we can then make use
This conceit unconsciously causes them to include our suggestions into
theirs without being on their guard against them. They are
fully confident that it is their own infallibility which is giving rise
to their own thoughts and that it is impossible for them to borrow
those of others...
You cannot imagine to what extent the wisest of the Goyim can be
brought to a state of unconscious simple-mindedness in the presence of
this condition of high conceit of themselves, and at the same time how
easy it is to take the heart out of them by the slightest ill-success;
even though it be nothing more than the lack of the applause which they
previously had, and to reduce them to a slavish submission for the sake
of winning a renewal of success...
We ourselves can
disregard success so long as we are able to carry through our long-term
plans. The Goyim on the other hand are willing to sacrifice
long-term plans in order to have success.
This psychology of theirs assists and enables us to set them in the
required direction. These tigers in appearance have the souls
of sheep and the wind blows freely through their heads. We
have set them on the hobby-horse of an idea about the absorption of
individuality into the symbolic unit of communism...
They have never yet (and never will) have the sense to realize that
this hobby-horse is a clear violation of the most important law of
nature: that it has created an entity quite different from any other
since the very creation of the world, and that its only purpose is to
7. Isn’t the fact that we have been able to bring
them to such an extent of stupid blindness a proof, and an amazingly
clear proof, of the degree to which the mind of the Goyim is
undeveloped in comparison with our own mind? Yes it is; and
this is what mainly guarantees our success.
8. And how far-sighted were our learned elders
in ancient times when they said that to attain a serious end it is
essential not to stop at any means or to count the victims sacrificed
for the sake of that end...
We have not counted the victims of the ancestry of the Goy cattle, and
we have sacrificed many of our own. But in exchange for that
we have now given them such a position on the earth as they could not
even have dreamed of.
The comparatively small numbers of the victims of our own people has
preserved our nationality from destruction.
9. Everyone has to die someday. So it is better
that those who hinder our affairs die much sooner than us since we are
the founders of this plan.
We execute masons
in such a clever way that no one other than us, the brotherhood, can
ever suspect anything – not even the victims of our death
sentence. They all die when required as if from natural
Knowing this, even the brotherhood dare not protest. Using
these methods we have removed the very root of protest against our
management style out of the midst of the Masonry.
While preaching liberalism to the Goy, at the same time we keep our own
people and our agents in a state of unquestioning submission.
10. Under our influence the laws of the Goyim are rarely
followed. The prestige of the law has been destroyed by the
liberal interpretations introduced into this area.
When it comes to the most important and fundamental affairs and
questions, judges make
the rulings that we tell them to make, and we surround
them with information that tells them how to view matters so that they
can be the administration of the Goyim. Of course, we carry
out our work via persons who are our tools and these people do not
appear to have anything in common with us – e.g. by using
newspaper opinions or by other means...
Even senators and the higher administration accept our opinions and
ideas. The undeveloped mind of the Goyim is incapable of
doing analysis and observation, and even less capable of predicting
where a certain manner of wording a law may lead.
11. Based on this difference in capacity for thought between
the Goyim and ourselves, it clearly marks us as being in our rightful
position as the Chosen People and of our higher quality of humanness,
in opposing contrast to the brute mind of the Goyim.
Their eyes are open, but they see nothing before them and do not invent
(unless perhaps, material things). From this it is plain that
nature herself has destined us to guide and rule the world.
12. When the time comes for our overt rule,
the time to manifest its blessing, we shall rewrite all
legislation. All our laws will be brief, plain, stable,
without any kind of interpretations, so that anyone will be in a
position to know them perfectly.
The main feature which will run right through them is submission to
orders, and this principle will be carried to a grandiose
height. Every abuse will then disappear as a result of the
orders being enforced via a long chain of hierarchy of authority,
leading from the lowest unit up to the highest representative of power.
Subordinates of this highest representative who abuse their power will
be so mercilessly punished that no one will be anxious to experiment
with their own powers. We shall eagerly follow up every
action of the administration which the smooth running of the machinery
of the State depends upon – for slackness in this produces
slackness everywhere. Not a single case of illegality or
abuse of power will go without a punishment designed to also serve as a
13. Concealment of guilt, encouragement of wrongdoing between
those in the service of the administration – all this kind of
evil will disappear after the very first examples of severe punishment.
The aura of our power demands suitable, that is, cruel, punishments for
the slightest infringement, and we do this to improve the prestige of
our supreme power.
The sufferer, though his punishment may exceed his offence, will be
counted as a soldier falling on the administrative field of battle in
the interest of authority, principle and law. Our principles
do not permit that any of those who hold the reins of the public coach
should exit from the public highway to their own private roads.
For example our
judges will know that whenever they feel disposed to pride themselves
by handing out foolish pardons they are violating the law of justice
which was established for the moral education of men by giving
punishment for wrongdoing, and not for displaying the spiritual
qualities of the judges...
Such qualities are proper to show in private life, but not in a public
square which is the educational base of human life.
14. Our legal staff will serve not beyond the age of 55,
firstly because old men more obstinately hold to prejudiced opinions,
and are less capable of submitting to new directions, and secondly
because this will give us the possibility of securing flexibility in
the changing of staff, who will then more easily bend under our
pressure: he who wishes to keep his place will have to give us blind
obedience to deserve it.
In general, our judges will be elected by us and only from among those
who thoroughly understand that the part they have to play is to punish
and apply laws, and not to dream about the manifestations of liberalism
at the expense of the educational scheme of the State, as the Goyim
these days imagine it to be...
This method of shuffling the staff will also serve to break apart any
collective solidarity of those in the same service and will bind them
all to the interests of the government upon which their fate will
depend. The young generation of judges will be trained to
have certain views regarding the inadmissibility of any abuses which
might disturb the established order of our subjects among themselves.
15. Nowadays the judges of the Goyim are tolerant toward
every kind of crime. They don’t have a proper
understanding of their office because the rulers of today, when
appointing judges, take no care to implant a sense of duty and
consciousness in them toward the actions which are demanded of them.
Just as a savage beast lets out its young in search of prey, so do the
unthinking rulers let out their poorly trained judges to make bad
decisions on cases of crime. Goyim then behave in a criminal
manner that fits the purpose for which these judges’
positions were created. This is the reason why their
governments are being ruined by their own forces through the acts of
their own administration.
16. Let us use the results of these actions as an example for
yet another lesson for our government.
17. We shall root out liberalism from all the important
strategic posts of our government which are in charge of the training
of subordinates of our State structure. Such posts will be
assigned exclusively to those who have been trained by us for
To the possible objection that the retirement of old servants will cost
the Treasury heavily, I reply, firstly, that they will be provided with
some private service in place of what they lose, and secondly, I need
to point out that all the money in the world will be concentrated in
our hands. So it is not our government which needs to fear
18. Our totalitarianism will have all the
components of its structure logically arranged and therefore our
superiority will be respected and unquestionably fulfilled in each one
of its decrees. It will ignore all complaints, all
disagreements of every kind and will destroy the root of every kind of
manifestation of them by punishments that are publically-visible.
19. We shall abolish the right of judges to annul our
rulings. This right will be transferred exclusively to us
– to the jurisdiction of the ruler, for we must not ever
allow the people to think that there could be such a thing as a
decision which is considered wrong in the eyes of the judges who were
appointed by us.
But if anything like this should occur, we shall void the decision
ourselves, and then inflict explicit punishment on the judge for
failing to understand his duty and the purpose of his
appointment. The punishment must be sufficient to prevent a
repetition of such cases...
I repeat that it must be deep-seated in our minds that we shall know
every part of our administration. This administration only
needs to be closely watched in order for the people to be content with
us. For the people have the right to demand that good
officials come from a good government.
government’s ruler will have the appearance of a
father-figure guardian. Our own nation and our
subjects will see in him: a father caring for their every need, their
every act, their every inter-relation as subjects with one another, as
well as their relations to the ruler.
They will then be so thoroughly filled with the thought that it is
impossible for them to dispense with this guardianship and guidance, if
they wish to live in peace and quiet, that they will acknowledge the
autocracy of our ruler with a devotion bordering on deity worship,
especially when they are convinced that those whom we appoint do not
themselves in place of authority, but only blindly execute his dictates.
They will be rejoiced that we have regulated everything in their lives,
in much the same way as wise parents who wish to train their children
to be duty-bound and submissive. For, in regard to the
secrets of our system of government, the peoples of the world are
always throughout history only under-age children, just as their
governments are likewise.
21. As you see, I founded our despotism on right and duty:
the right to compel the execution of duty is the direct obligation of a
government which is a father for its subjects. It has the
right of the strong, and the right to use that strength for the benefit
of directing humanity towards that established order which is defined
by nature, namely, submission.
Everything in the world is in a state of submission, if not to man,
then to circumstances or its own inner character. In all
cases, everything is in submission to what is stronger. And
so shall we be this something stronger for the sake of good.
22. We are obliged, without hesitation, to sacrifice
individuals who commit a breach of established order, because the
explicit punishment of evil makes a great educational program.
23. When the King of Israel sets the crown offered to him by
Europe upon his sacred head he will become patriarch of the
world. The necessary victims created by him as a result of
their suitability (e.g. as criminals) will never reach the number of
victims created in the course of centuries by the mania of
magnificence: by the jealous rivalry between the Goy governments.
24. Our King will be in constant communion with the peoples,
making famous speeches to them from the pulpit, which will be
distributed over the entire world within the hour.
Protocol #16 –
1. In order to bring about the destruction of all collective
forces except ours, we shall disable the first stage of collectivism
– the universities,
by reeducating them in a new direction.
Their officials and
professors will be prepared for their business by detailed secret
programs of action from which they will not be allowed to diverge, not
by one iota.
They will be
appointed with particular precaution, and will be placed so as to be
wholly dependent upon the government.
2. We shall exclude State Law from the course of instruction
and also any material that deals with the political
mechanism. These subjects will be taught to a few dozen
persons chosen for their preeminent capacities from among those of
must no longer graduate weak individuals concocting plans for a
constitution. Like a comedy or a tragedy, those people are
concerning themselves with questions of policy in which not even their
own fathers ever had any power of thought.
3. When large number of persons attempt to deal with issues
of administrative regulation, this creates utopian dreamers and bad
subjects. You can see this for yourselves from the example of
the universal education of the Goyim in this direction.
We must introduce all those principles into their education which have
so brilliantly broken down their harmony. But when we are in
power we shall remove every kind of disturbing subject from the course
of education and shall turn the youth into obedient children of
authority, who love the ruler as being the support and hope for peace
4. Classicism, as with all other forms of
study of ancient history, has more bad than good examples. We
shall replace these with the study of the program of the future.
We shall erase from the memory of men, all facts of previous centuries
which are undesirable to us, and leave only those which show all the
errors of the governments of the Goyim.
The study of practical life; of the obligations of maintaining order;
of the relations of people to one another; of avoiding bad and selfish
examples which spread the infection of evil; and similar questions of
an educative nature: we will bring these to the forefront of the
teaching program. This program will be drawn up as a separate
plan for each career path or position in life, and in this way it
generalizes the teaching. This aspect of the program has
5. Each career path or position in life must be trained
within strict limits corresponding to its aim, and how it fits in with
genius has always managed, and always will manage, to slip through into
other positions in life. But it is a big mistake to let this
rare occasional genius into ranks which are foreign to them.
They are untalented people who take over the jobs belonging to those
ranks granted by birth or employment. You know yourselves in
what manner all this has ended for the Goyim who allowed this crying
6. In order that the ruler may be firmly seated in the hearts
and minds of his subjects, it is necessary, for the duration of his
rein, to instruct the whole nation in the schools and on the market
places about the purpose of his actions and all his beneficent
7. We shall abolish every kind of freedom of
instruction. Learners of all ages have the right to assemble
together with their parents in the educational establishments, as if it
were a club. During these assemblies, and on holidays,
teachers will read what will pass as free lectures on social and
relationship issues, of the laws of examples, and of the philosophy
behind new theories not yet declared to the world.
These theories will be raised by us to the stage of a dogma of faith,
like as a traditional stage towards our faith. Now that I
completed this explanation of our program of action in the present and
the future, I will read you the principles of these theories.
8. Basically, we know from many centuries of experience that
people live and are guided by ideas, and that these ideas are absorbed
by people only with the aid of education that has equal success for all
ages of growth. But of course by various methods, we shall
swallow up and confiscate the last scintilla of independence of
thought. We have been directing all thoughts towards subjects
and ideas that are useful to us, and have been doing so for a long time.
The system of bridling thought is already at work in the so-called
system of teaching by object
lessons; the purpose of which is to turn
the Goyim into unthinking submissive brutes waiting for things to be
presented before their eyes in order to form an idea of them...
In France, one of our best agents, Bourgeois, has already made public a
new program of teaching by object lessons.
Protocol #17 – Abuse of
1. The practice of being a defense attorney produces men who
are cold, cruel, persistent and unprincipled; and who take up an
impersonal, purely legal standpoint in all cases. They have
the bad habit of basing their defense on the value of the people they
are representing, and not on the public welfare of its results.
They rarely decline to undertake any defense whatever.
Instead they strive for an acquittal at all costs; raising trivial
objections over every nitpicking point of legislation and in this way
they demoralize justice.
For this reason we shall set this profession into narrow frames which
will keep it inside a sphere of executive public service.
Defense attorneys, equally with judges, will be deprived of the right
of communication with the litigant. They will receive
business only from the court and will study it by notes of report and
documents, defending their clients after they have been interrogated in
court on facts that have appeared.
They will receive a fixed payment without regard to the quality of
their defense. This will render them as mere reporters on
legal-proceedings in the interests of justice and as a counterbalance
to the prosecution lawyer who will be the reporter in the interests of
prosecution. This will shorten business before the courts.
In this way a practice of honest unprejudiced defense will be
established which is not motivated by personal gain but by
conviction. Incidentally this will also remove the current
practice of corrupt bargaining between different levels of courts which
agrees to only let that side which pays the most, win...
Destroy the Clergy
a long time in the past, we have taken care to discredit the priesthood
of Goyim, and thereby to ruin their mission on earth which
might still be a great hindrance to us in the present day.
Day by day it is losing its influence on the peoples of the
of thought has been declared everywhere and the moment of the complete
wrecking of the Christian religion is now only years away.
As for other religions, we shall have even less difficulty in dealing
with them, but it would be premature to speak of this now.
We shall restrict the ability of the clergy to influence the government
into such narrow frames as to make their influence move increasingly
backward in comparison to their former progress.
3. When the time finally comes to destroy the papal court,
the finger of an invisible hand will point the nation’s anger
toward this court. When, however, the nations come to attack
it, we shall come forward in the guise of its defenders as if to save
By this diversion we shall penetrate to its very inner sanctum and be
sure to never come out again until we have gnawed through the entire
strength of this place.
4. The king of
the Jews will be the real pope of the universe, the patriarch of the
international church [The Antichrist??].
5. But, in the
meantime, while we are reeducating youth in new
traditional religions and then afterwards in ours, we shall not overtly lay a finger
on existing churches, but we shall fight against them using criticism
calculated to produce internal disunity...
6. In general, then, our contemporary media will continue to condemn State
affairs, religions, and imperfections of the Goyim; always using the
most disrespectful expressions in order to lower their prestige by
every means and in a manner which can only be done by the genius of our
7. Our kingdom will be a representation of the Hindu deity
Vishnu – our hundred hands will be on the controls of the
machinery of social life. We shall see everything without the
aid of official police which, because of the limitations on their
powers, hinders governments from seeing properly. We have
made a list of similar limitations to be applied on the Goyim.
In our programs one-third
of our subjects will keep the rest under observation from
a sense of duty, and on the principle of volunteer service to the
State. It will then be no disgrace to be a spy and informer,
but a merit. False accusations made before a public
prosecutor, however, will be cruelly punished so as to prevent abuses
of this right.
8. Our informers will be selected from all ranks of society:
from among the administrative class who spend their time in amusements,
editors, printers and publishers, booksellers, clerks, and salesmen,
workmen, coachmen, lackeys, etc.
This body, having no rights and not being empowered to take any action
on their own account, and consequently a police without any power, will
only witness and report. Verification of their reports and
arrests will depend upon a responsible group of controllers of police
affairs, while the actual act of arrest will be performed by the
gendarmerie and the municipal police.
Any person not reporting anything seen or heard concerning issues of
political importance will also be charged with and made responsible for
concealment – if it be proved that he is guilty of this crime.
9. Just as
nowadays our brethren are obliged at their own risk to formally condemn
the Kabbalah apostates of their own family or members who
have been noticed doing anything in opposition to the Kabbalah, so in our kingdom over
all the world it will be obligatory for all our subjects to observe the
duty of service to the state in this direction.
10. Such an organization will eliminate abuses of authority,
of force, of bribery – everything in fact which we, by our
wisdom, by our theories of the superhuman rights of man, have
introduced into the customs of the Goyim...
But how else were we to bring about that increase of trigger events
which lead to disorders within their administration? ... Among those
methods, one of the most important is having agents for the restoration
of order placed in such a way as to have the opportunity to cause
problems. They will use their disintegrating activity to
develop and display their evil inclinations – obstinate
self-conceit, irresponsible exercise of authority, and, first and
foremost, an openness to bribery and corruption.
Protocol #18 – Arrest of
1. When we need to give more power to our secret police
(which are the best form of defense for those in authority) we will
arrange for some fake disorders to take place. We will then
arrange for a group of skilled speakers who will cooperate in
pretending to be angry citizens crying out about this.
People who are sympathetic to what is being said will then gather
around these speakers. This will give us the pretext for
demanding that a select group of Goyim police be able to put
people’s homes under surveillance...
2. Most conspirators act because they enjoy that type of
activity and like to brag about it afterward. So until they
do something big we won't do anything to them, except to bring a few
things to their attention...
If a government frequently discovers that there are conspiracies
against them, this gives them a bad image: it makes them look like they
know they are weak or, worse yet, that they know they are unjust.
As you are aware, we have damaged the image of the Goy kings by making
frequent assassination attempts on them. We have done this
through our agents, some of whom are people who blindly believe and act
on what we tell them; providing that we phrase it in a freedom-seeking
We have forced the
rulers to acknowledge their weakness by showing everyone the many
secret plots against them. In this way we shall destroy their
3. Our ruler will be secretly protected only by a minimal
number of guards, because we don’t want anyone to think that
there could be any rebellion against him which he wasn’t
strong enough to handle, and needed to hide from.
4. If we allowed people to think this, as the Goyim have done
and are doing, we would be effectively be signing an early death
sentence – if not for our ruler, then for his dynasty.
5. Our ruler must appear to only use his power
for the benefit of the nation and never to build his own dynasty.
In this way, his authority will be respected and guarded by the
subjects themselves; it will be elevated to a glorified status because
it will be seen as tied up with the well-being of every citizen of the
State, and because the common people depend on the order which this
6. When a
ruler is seen to surround himself with a large number of guards, this
gives the appearance that he is weak and unable to organize his defense.
7. Our ruler will always be among the people and will be
surrounded by a mob of apparently curious men and women. They
will occupy the front ranks about him and this will all appear to be by
chance. These people will restrain the ranks of the other
people, and it will appear that they are doing this out of respect and
to maintain good order.
This will set an example of restraint and encourage the same behavior
in others. If a petitioner appears from the among the people
and forces his way through the ranks in order to hand a petition to the
ruler, the first ranks must receive the petition and, before the eyes
of the petitioner, pass it to the ruler. In this way everyone
will know that what is handed in reaches its destination and that
consequently there is some control over the ruler himself.
The aura of power requires that the people may be able to say: "If the
king knew of this," or: "the king will hear it."
8. Once an
official defense for authority has been established, its prestige
disappears. Then, given certain degree of
daring, everyone could promote himself as an authority. The
promoter of rebellion becomes conscious of his strength – he
then waits for an appropriate moment to make his attempt upon
We keep telling the Goyim that it is better to have a visible defense,
even though we know it is best to do the opposite. But this
enables us to see what this type of defense does to them…
within our ranks will be arrested at the first, more or
Even though, out of fear for our defense, we may make a mistake in
wrongly accusing someone, we cannot allow that person whom we suspect
of a political crime to escape. So in these matters we shall
be literally merciless.
It may still be possible (if we stretch the legal points) to reconsider
a verdict on simple crimes by examining the motives behind
them. But there is no possibility of excuse for persons
attempting to involve themselves in issues which can only be understood
by the government...
And not all governments understand true policy.
Protocol #19 – Rulers
1. Although we won’t permit any independent person
to meddle in our political affairs, we shall on the other hand
encourage every kind of report or petition with proposals for the
government to look into all kinds of projects for the improvement of
the condition of the people. This will reveal the defects and
fantasies of our subjects to us. We shall respond to these
proposals by either by carrying them out or by providing a wise
rebuttal to prove their shortsightedness.
2. Incitement of a rebellion is nothing more than the yapping
of a lap-dog at an elephant. For a government that is well
organized, not from the police but from the public’s point of
view, the lap-dog yaps at the elephant without being aware of its
strength and importance.
All it takes is a good example to show the relative importance of both,
and the lap-dogs will cease to yap and will instead wag their tails
from the moment they see on the elephant.
3. In order to destroy the prestige of heroism for political
crime we shall put it on trial in the category of thieving, murder, and
every other kind of abominable and filthy crime. Public
opinion will then confuse political crime with the disgrace attached to
those other types of crimes and will then brand it with the same
4. We have done our best, and I hope we have succeeded in
ensuring that the Goyim should not consider that rebellion is a good
thing. It was for this reason that through the Media, in
speeches, and indirectly – in cleverly written school-books
on history, we have advertised the martyrdom allegedly recommended by
rebellion-mongers as a way of securing the common welfare of the public.
This advertisement has increased the percentage of freedom seekers and
has brought thousands of Goyim into the ranks of our livestock cattle.
Protocol #20 – Financial
1. Today we’ll talk about the financial
program. I’ve put this off to the end of my report
as being the most difficult, but also the most important and decisive
point of our plans.
Before starting on it, I will remind you that I have already spoken
about it earlier by way of a hint when I said that the sum total of our
actions is settled by financial issues, particularly, the question of
large amounts of money.
2. When we come into our kingdom our autocratic government
will avoid over-taxing the people. It will do this for
reasons of self-preservation because it sensibly remembers that it
plays the part of father and protector.
But running a State organization is very expensive so it is still
necessary to obtain the funds required for it. It will
therefore enter into elaborate and open discussions on how to find the
right balance on questions of taxation.
3. Our rule of power, in which the king will enjoy the legal
fiction that everything in his State belongs to him (and this may
easily be translated into fact), will be enabled to resort to the
lawful confiscation of all amounts of wealth of every kind for the use
of, and circulation within, the State.
From this we conclude that the best kind of taxation will be a
progressive tax on property. In this manner the tax will be
paid without overly stressing or ruining anybody because it will be a
percentage of the value of their property.
The rich must be aware that it is their duty to place part of their
superfluous wealth at the disposal of the State since the State
guarantees them security of possession of the remainder of their
property and the right of honest gains. I say
‘honest’ because our determination over
who-owns-what will do away with the need for robbery in the
standard legal sense.
4. This social reform must come from the government because
time is ripe for it – it is necessary as a pledge of peace
from the government to the people.
5. Taxing poor people works to the detriment
of the State, firstly because it pushes them toward revolt, and
secondly because it wastes energy in pursuing tiny amounts instead of
Quite apart from this, a tax on capitalists can be used to diminish the
growth of wealth in private hands. Lately we have been
concentrating wealth into private hands as a way of taking it away from
the Goyim government. This reduces their strength because
that strength comes from their State finances.
6. A tax which increases as a percentage ratio on capital
will give a much larger revenue than the present individual or property
tax. The present tax structure is useful to us now for the
sole reason that it stirs up trouble and discontent among the different
classes of the Goyim.
7. The amount of power that our king has will depend on the
equilibrium and the guarantee of peace. For the sake of these
things it is necessary that the capitalists should give up a portion of
their incomes so that the machinery of the State works
securely. The State’s requirements must be paid by
those who will not feel the burden and who have enough money that they
can afford to have it taken from them.
8. Such a measure will end the hatred of the poor man for the
rich. The poor will now see the rich as a necessary financial
support for the State and the organizer of peace and well-being, since
the poor man will see that it is the rich man who is providing the
necessary means to attain these ends.
9. In order that taxpayers from the educated classes
don’t get too distressed over the new payments they will be
provided with full details of where the money is going; with the
exception of the money that is required for the needs of our king and
the institutions which support the administration of those needs.
10. The king will not have any properties of his own because
the sum of all properties in the State represents his inherited
kingdom-estate. If the king were said to have ownership of a
specific property, this would contradict his ownership of all other
properties, and thus destroy his right to the ownership of those
11. Relatives of the king – with the exception of
his heirs who will be maintained by the resources of the state
– must work for their livelihood and to obtain the rights to
property. The privilege of royal blood must not be used to
drain the treasury.
12. Receipt of money from purchases or inheritance will be
subject to the payment of a progressive stamp tax. Any
transfer of money or other property (which will be strictly registered
by names) that is done without evidence of payment of this tax will
render the former owner liable to pay interest on the tax, from the
moment of transfer of these sums, up to the date of discovery of his
evasion of declaration of the transfer.
Transfer documents must be presented within a week at the local
treasury office with notifications of the given name, surname and
permanent place of residence of the former and the new owner of the
This transfer document must include a definite sale-price amount, which
exceeds the ordinary necessary expenses of buying and selling, and this
will be subject to payment of a stamp duty based on a fixed percentage
13. Think about how taxes like these will cover the revenue
of the Goyim States, many times over.
14. The State Treasury will be required to
keep a certain amount of money in reserve, and anything that is
collected in excess of that amount must be returned into
circulation. This will be done by spending that excess on
public works projects.
This type of spending will bind the working class firmly to the
interests of the State and to those who reign. Some money
will also be set aside as rewards for inventiveness and productivity.
15. On no account should any more than the required reserve
be kept in State Treasuries. Money exists to be circulated,
and any kind of stagnation of money works against the best interests of
the State machinery. Money is the lubricant of this machinery
and a stagnation of the lubricant may stop the regular working of the
16. Using currency to purchase interest-bearing paper
(bonds), instead of spending it, has produced this kind of stagnation
exactly. The consequences of this circumstance are already
17. A chart of accounts will also be established by us, and
in it the ruler will find the full accounting of State income and
expenditure at any moment. That is with the exception of the
current monthly account, which will not have been done yet, and that of
the preceding month, which may not yet have been delivered.
18. The one and only person who will have no interest in
robbing the State is its owner – the ruler. This is
why his personal control will remove the possibility of extravagant
spending by others.
19. The ceremonial duties of the ruler, such as being present
at formal receptions for the sake of etiquette, absorb so much of his
valuable time and will be abolished so that the ruler may have time for
control and consideration. His power will not then be split
up into fractional parts among the time-consuming political celebrities
who surround the throne for its pomp and splendor, and who are only
interested in themselves and not in the common interests of the State.
20. Economic crises have been produced by us for the Goyim by
no other means than the withdrawal of money from circulation.
Huge sums of capital have stagnated by withdrawing money from States,
which were constantly obliged to apply to those same stagnant capitals
toward the payment of loans.
These loans burdened the finances of the State with the payment of
interest and made them the bonded slaves of these capitals...
The concentration of money invested in industry in the hands of
capitalists, who have taken that money out of the hands of small
investors, has drained away all the juices of the peoples and also the
States alongside them...
21. The current supply and issuance of money in general does
not correspond with the requirements per head, and therefore cannot
satisfy all the needs of the workers.
The available supply of money ought to correspond with the growth of
population and therefore children also must absolutely be counted as
consumers of currency from the day of their birth. The
subject of money supply is a material question for the whole world.
22. You are
aware that the Gold Standard has been the ruin of the states which
adopted it, because it has not been able to satisfy the demands for
money, especially as we have removed gold from circulation as far as
23. For us, the currency-standard which must
introduced is the cost of working-man power, whether it is represented
paper or in wood. We shall issue money in accordance with the
normal requirements of each subject, adding to the quantity with every
birth and subtracting with every death.
24. The accounts will be managed by each department (such as
the French administrative division), and each circle of staff within
25. In order that there may be no delays in the paying out of
money for State needs, the amount and terms of such payments will be
fixed by decree of the ruler. This will do away with the
protection by a ministry of one institution to the detriment of others.
26. The budgets of income and expenditure will be developed
side by side so that they may not be obscured by the distances between
27. The reforms proposed by us in the financial institutions
and principles of the Goyim will be disguised in such a way that they
won’t alarm anybody. We shall point out that these
reforms are necessary as a result of the disorderly darkness which the
Goyim have plunged the finances into as a result of their accounting
The first irregularity, as we shall point out, consists of their
drawing up of a single annual budget which grows year after year owing
to the following cause: this budget is consumed within half
the year; they then demand a budget to put things right, and they use
this up in three months, after which they ask for a supplementary
budget. All this ends with a liquidation budget.
But, as the budget of the following year is drawn up in accordance with
the sum total of the previous year’s budgets, the annual
departure from the normal reaches as much as 50 per cent in a year, and
so the annual budget is trebled in ten years.
Thanks to such methods allowed by the carelessness of the Goy States,
their treasuries are empty. The period of borrowing which
follows has swallowed up what remains, and brought all the Goy States
28. You understand perfectly well that economic arrangements
of this kind, which we have suggested to the Goyim, cannot be carried
on by us.
29. Every kind of loan demonstrates a weakness in the State
and a lack of understanding of the rights of the State. Loans
hang like a sword of Damocles over the heads of rulers who, instead of
taking the desired amount from their subjects by way of a temporary
tax, come begging with outstretched palms to our bankers.
Foreign loans are leeches and there is no possibility of removing them
from the body of the State until they fall off of themselves or the
State flings them off. But the Goy States do not tear them
off; they go on in persisting in putting more on to themselves so that
they must inevitably perish, drained by voluntary
30. What substance makes up a loan, especially
a foreign loan? A loan is defined as: an issue of government
bills of exchange containing a percentage obligation based on the sum
of the loan capital. For example, if the loan bears a charge
of 5 per cent, then in twenty years the State vainly pays away a sum
equal to the loan borrowed – just as interest; in forty years
it is paying double that amount; in sixty – treble: and all
the while the capital (principle) portion of the debt remains unpaid.
31. From this calculation it is obvious that, with any form
of taxation per head, the State is baling out the last pennies of the
poor taxpayers in order to settle accounts with wealthy
foreigners. The State has borrowed money from these
foreigners instead of collecting those pennies for its own needs from
the taxpayers without the additional interest.
32. So long as loans were internal the Goyim only shuffled
their money from the pockets of the poor to those of the
rich. But when we changed the system in order to transfer
loans into the external sphere, all the wealth of States flowed into
our cash-boxes and the Goyim became our subjects.
33. If counties have accumulated enormous debts that are
impossible to repay, it is not just because Goy kings have been
careless in the way that they handle corruption of their ministers, or
that they lack an understanding in financial matters, but it is also
due to our actions which have required much trouble and great expense
on our part.
34. Stagnation of money will not be allowed by us and
therefore there will be no State interest-bearing bonds, except a
one-percent series. So there will be no payment of
leeches that suck all the strength out of the State.
The right to issue interest-bearing bonds will be given exclusively to
industrial companies who have no difficulty in paying interest out of
their profits. Whereas the State does not make profits on
money like these companies, for the State borrows to spend and not to
use in operations.
35. Industrial bonds will also be bought by the
government. This will transform those industries into lenders
of money at profit.
This measure will stop the stagnation of money, parasitic profits and
idleness. These things were useful for us when we were among
the independent Goyim, but are not desirable under our own rule.
36. It should now be quite obvious that the brainpower of the
Goyim is undeveloped, based on the fact that they have been borrowing
from us and paying interest without ever thinking that the same amount
of money plus the interest must be taken from their own State pockets
in order to settle up with us. What could have been simpler
than to take the money they wanted from their own people?
37. But it is a proof of the genius of our chosen mind that
we have cleverly planned to present the matter of loans to them in such
a manner that they have even seen them as an advantage for themselves.
38. Our accounts, which we shall present when the time comes,
and which are
based on the experience gained by centuries of experiments made by us
on the Goy States, will be distinguished by clearness and definiteness
and will show to everyone at a glance the advantage of our
innovations. They will put an end to those abuses to which we
owe our mastery over the Goyim, but which cannot be allowed in our
39. We shall set up our system of accounting in such a way
that neither the ruler nor the most insignificant public servant will
be in a position to divert even the smallest sum from its destination
without detection, or to direct it in another manner that is contrary
to our fixed and definite plan of action.
40. And without a definite plan it is impossible to
rule. Marching along an undetermined road and with
undetermined resources brings a nation to ruin by the way of heroes and
41. The Goy rulers, whom we once upon a time advised should
avoid their ceremonial duties of being a representative at State
receptions, observances of etiquette and entertainments, were only
smokescreens covering for our rule.
The favorite courtiers who replaced the rulers in the sphere of
ceremonial affairs were placed there by our agents, and every time gave
satisfaction to short-sighted minds by promises that future economics
and improvements were foreseen... Economics from
what? From new taxes? These are questions that
might have been, but were not, asked by those who read our accounts and
42. You know what shape they are in due to this carelessness
and to what degree of financial disorder they have arrived –
putting aside the astonishingly successful industries of their peoples.
Protocol #21 – Loans and
1. To what I reported to you at the last meeting, I shall now
a detailed explanation of internal loans. I won’t
more about foreign loans, because they have fed us with the national
moneys of the Goyim. But for our State there will be no
foreigners, that is, nothing external.
2. We have taken advantage of the mistakes of administrators
slackness of rulers to get our moneys twice, thrice and more times
over; by lending moneys to the Goy governments which were not at all
needed by the States. Could anyone get away with making the
type of loans to us? ... Obviously not! So I shall only deal
the details of internal loans:
3. The process begins by the State announcing that it needs
borrow money from the public. Interest-bearing paper (bills
exchange) will be printed and offered for sale. In order that
these are within reach of everyone’s investment capacity, the
price of these bills will be kept low, and a discount will be offered
for early subscribers.
The next day, by artificial means, the price of them goes up; the
alleged reason being that everyone is rushing to buy them. In
few days the treasury safes are so-to-speak overflowing and there's
more money than they can deal with. The subscription, it is
alleged, covers the issue of the loan total many times over.
in this lies the whole stage effect – “Hey
they say, “What confidence is being shown in the government's
bills of exchange”.
4. But once the comedy has played out, there emerges the fact
that a debit (and an exceedingly burdensome debit) has been
created. In order to pay the interest on this debit it
necessary to take out new loans, which do not reduce, but only add to
the debt owing.
And when this credit is exhausted it becomes necessary to introduce new
taxes to cover, not the principal of the loan, but only the interest on
it. These taxes are a debit created to cover a
5. Eventually the time comes for converting the
paper into cash. But due to the large debit problems
above, the government announces that it will need to reduce the payment
of interest without covering the principal portion of the
And another problem they will claim is that they can’t do
conversion without the consent of the lenders; many of whom are not
willing to convert their paper.
If everybody expressed his unwillingness and demanded his money back,
the government would be hooked on their own promises and would be found
insolvent and unable to pay the proposed sums.
But fortunately for the Goy governments, their subjects of know nothing
about financial affairs and have always preferred losses on exchange
and reduction of interest to the risk of new investments of their
moneys. This trick has enabled these governments to throw a
of several millions off their backs on many occasions.
6. Nowadays, with external loans, these tricks cannot be
on us by the Goyim because they know that we shall demand all our
7. In this way, acknowledged bankruptcy will prove
people of various countries that their rulers do not have the financial
resources to look after them.
8. I beg you to focus your attention upon this point and upon
following: nowadays all internal loans are consolidated by so-called
short-term or ‘flying’ loans, that is, they have
payment more or less near.
These debts consist of moneys paid into the savings banks and reserve
funds. If left for long in the hands of a government, these
will evaporate by way of payments of interest on foreign
But the funds are placed on deposit at these banks for equivalent
amount of rents.
9. The rent (interest) paid by the banks on these deposits
cancel the interest payable on foreign loans and patch up all the leaks
in the State treasuries of the Goyim.
10. When we ascend to the throne of the world all these
and similar types of transfers will be swept away so as not to leave a
trace because they are not in accord with our interests. All
money markets will also be destroyed, since we shall not allow the
prestige of our power to be shaken by fluctuations of prices set upon
our values. We shall announce, by law, the price of
which represents their full worth without any possibility of lowering
or raising it. (Raising gives the pretext for lowering, which
indeed was where we made a start in lowering the values of the Goyim.)
11. We shall replace the money markets by grandiose
credit institutions, the purpose of which will be to fix the price of
industrial values (stock prices) in accordance with government
views. These institutions will be in a position to fling upon
market hundreds or millions of industrial bonds in one day, or to buy
up the same amount. In this way all industrial
will come to depend on us. You can imagine what immense power
shall secure for ourselves in this way.
Protocol #22 – Power of
1. In everything that I’ve reported to you so far I
have endeavored to carefully describe the secret of what is coming: of
what happened in the past, of what is going on now, and what will be
happening while rushing into the flood of great events coming
the near future. I’ve also described the secret of
our relations to the Goyim and of our financial operations.
On this subject there still remains a little for me to add.
2. In our
hands is the greatest power of our day – gold: in two days we
can procure from our storehouses any quantity we may please.
3. Surely there is no need to seek further proof that our
rule is predestined by God?
Surely we shall not fail with such wealth to prove that that all the
evil which we have had to commit over so many centuries has served at
the end of ends, the cause of true well-being – the bringing
of everything into order?
Even though we need to use some violence, we will still establish our
rule. We shall ingeniously prove that we are benefactors who
have restored the true good and freedom of the person to the torn and
mangled earth; and in this way we shall enable it to be enjoyed in
peace and quiet, with proper dignity of relations with their
government. This is all on the condition, of course, that
strict observance be given to the laws established by us.
We shall make it clearly known that freedom does not consist of
careless self-indulgence or of the right to do anything that is
desired, any more than the dignity and character of a gentleman does
not consist in the right to promote destructive principles in the
nature of freedom of thought. In the same way it follows:
that freedom of the person in no way consists in the right to agitate
oneself and others by abominable speeches before disorderly mobs; that
true freedom consists in the righteousness of the person who honorably
and strictly observes all the laws of life in common; that human
dignity is wrapped up in the awareness of the rights and also of the
absence of rights of each person, and not wholly and solely in
fantastic imaginings about the subject of one's ego.
4. A single authority will be glorious because it will be
all-powerful: it will rule and guide, and not muddle along after
leaders and orators shrieking themselves hoarse with senseless words
which they call great principles and, honestly speaking, they are
nothing but unrealistic schemes of idealized perfection...
Our authority will be the crowning achievement of order, and included
in that is the whole happiness of man. The aura of this
authority will inspire a mystical bowing of the knee before it and a
respectful fear of all the peoples before it. True force does
not negotiate with any right, not even with that of God: none dare come
near to it, not even to take so much as an inch of it away.
Protocol #23 –
1. In order that the peoples may become accustomed to
obedience it is necessary to frequently impose lessons of humility and
therefore we need to reduce the production of luxury items.
By doing this we shall improve morals which have been depreciated by
the emulation of luxurious lifestyles. We shall resurrect
small business production which will require placing a land-mine under
the private capital of large manufactures.
This is also necessary for the reason that large manufacturers often
move, although not always deliberately, the thoughts of the masses in
directions against the government.
A society of small business masters knows nothing of unemployment and
this binds them closely with existing order, and consequently with the
firmness of authority. For us its role will have been played
out, and hence will no longer be useful, once authority is transferred
into our hands.
Drunkenness also will be prohibited by law and punishable as a crime
against the humanness of man who is turned into a brute under the
2. Subjects, I repeat once more, give blind obedience only to
authority figures that are strong and absolutely independent of them,
because they feel that these figures are a defense against social
evils... Why would they want a king with an angelic
spirit? What they need to see in him is the personification
of force and power.
3. The existing rulers are currently dragging out their
existence among societies demoralized by us. Those societies
have denied even the authority of God who now feeds the fire of anarchy
on all sides. The supreme lord who will replace all those
rulers must first proceed to quench this all-devouring flame.
Therefore he will be obliged to kill off those existing societies, even
though he should need to drench them with the blood of his own people,
so that he may
resurrect them again in the form of regularly organized troops fighting
conscientiously against every kind of infection that may cover the body
of the State with sores.
4. This Chosen One of God is chosen from above to demolish
the senseless Goy forces which are moved by instinct and not reason: by
brutishness and humanness.
These Goy forces now triumph in manifestations of robbery and every
kind of violence under the guise of principles of freedom and rights.
They have overthrown all forms of social order to erect themselves on
the ruins of the throne of the King of the Jews. But their
part will have been played out from the moment our King enters into his
kingdom. Then it will be necessary to sweep them away from
his path, and there must be no trace of them left on it.
5. Then will it be possible for us to say to the peoples of
the world: “Give thanks to God and bow on your knee before
our King who bears on his front the seal of the predestination of
man. God himself has led his star such that none other but
Him might free us from all the above-mentioned forces and
Protocol #24 – Qualities
of the Ruler
1. I’ll now discuss the method of fully confirming
the dynastic roots of King David.
2. This method of confirmation will also serve as a
for directing the education and thought of all humanity, and is based
on the conservative conduct of our learned elders in managing the
affairs of the world.
3. Certain members of the descendants of David will select
prepare the kings and their heirs. They will be selected, not
right of heritage, but by their eminent capabilities. They
be inducted into the most secret mysteries of political methods and
schemes of government, although they will not be given specific
knowledge of the secrets.
The purpose of this mode of action is demonstrate to everyone that
government cannot be entrusted to those who have not been inducted into
the secret places of its art...
4. To those who are selected, they will only be taught the
practical application of the plans (which I described earlier) by
comparing the experiences of many centuries, and by making careful
observations on all the politico-economic moves and social
sciences. In other words, they will study the
all the laws which have been unshakably established by nature herself
for the regulation of the relations of humanity.
5. Direct heirs will often be prevented from ascending to the
throne if, during their time of training, they exhibit frivolity,
softness or other qualities that are the ruin of authority.
qualities render them incapable of governing and are dangerous for
6. Only those who are unconditionally capable of firm, direct
rule will receive the reins of rule from our learned elders, even if
they are this way to the point of cruelty.
7. In case of falling sick with weakness of will or other
incapacity, kings must by law hand over the reins of rule to new and
8. The king's plan of action for the current moment, and all
more so for the future, will be unknown, even to those who are called
his closest counselors.
9. Only the king and the three who sponsored
him will know what is coming.
10. The king will be seen as person of unbending will who is
master of himself and of humanity. All will see his position
rise to power as though it were fate with its mysterious
None will know what the king wishes to attain by his plans, and
therefore none will dare to stand across an unknown path.
11. The mental abilities of the king must be sufficient to
with the plans of the government. For this reason he will not
permitted to ascend to the throne until after an examination of his
mind by our learned elders.
12. In order that the people may know and love their king, it
necessary for him to converse in the market-places with his
people. This brings the government and the people together as
combined force – two groups which were previously divided by
terror which was brought by us against the people.
13. It was necessary for us to use this terror to bring the
forces of the people and their government under our influence.
14. The king of the Jews must not be at the mercy of his
passions, and especially of his senses: on no side of his character
must he allow brute instincts to overpower his mind.
worse than anything else, disorganizes the capacities of the mind and
clearness of views. It distracts thoughts to the worst and
brutal side of human activity.
15. The supreme lord of the entire world, in the form of the
seed of David, represents the prop of humanity. He must
all personal inclinations and be devoted to his people.
16. Our supreme lord must be an example of perfection.
