The World Dominance Plot

Norman D. Livergood

"Democracy is inimical to imperial mobilization."

Z. Brzezinski.The Grand Chessboard

     Of the sixteen major civilizations which have existed in all of human history, ten are already dead, their cultures destroyed by their own defects. As Walter Lippmann reminded us:
     "A regime, an established order, is rarely overthrown by a revolutionary movement; usually a regime collapses of its own weakness and corruption and then a revolutionary movement enters among the ruins and takes over the powers that have become vacant." 1

Columbus invading the South American culture      The barbarian invasions destroyed Classical Civilization in the period 350-700 A.D. Western Civilization created itself by drawing together elements from the barbarian tribes, the Roman world, the Saracen world, and the Judeo-Christian world. After passing through its period of gestation from 700-970 A.D., Western Civilization experienced four periods of expansion and conflict:

     For the first time in history, Western Civilization now has a Universal Empire, with the United States attempting to dominate most of the modern world.

     But, also for the first time in its history, David Rockefeller Western Civilization is in danger of being destroyed internally by a corrupt, criminal ruling cabal which is centered around the Rockefeller interests, which include elements from the Morgan, Brown, Rothschild, Du Pont, Harriman, Kuhn-Loeb, and other groupings as well. This junta took control of the political, financial, and cultural life of America in the first two decades of the twentieth century. 2

     The Bush family, beginning with Prescott Bush, have served as satraps of the Rockefeller, Brown, and Harriman interests. President Bush is simply a puppet of this powerful cabal, and their schemes will be carried out by whatever next president comes to power unless we the people can deflect them from this insane, murderous plot for global dominance.

     There are several major reasons why this "High Cabal," as L. Fletcher Prouty referred to it, is moving the United States toward destruction:

"To be an egoist refers not only to my behavior but to my character. It means: that I want everything for myself, that possessing, not sharing, gives me pleasure; that I must become greedy because if my aim is having, I am more the more I have; that I must feel antagonistic toward all others: my customers whom I want to deceive, my competitors whom I want to destroy, my workers whom I want to exploit. I can never be satisfied, because there is no end to my wishes; I must be envious of those who have more and afraid of those who have less. But I have to repress all these feelings in order to represent myself (to others as well as to myself) as the smiling, rational, sincere, kind human being everybody pretends to be."

Erich Fromm. To Have Or To Be?

Misunderstanding the Dynamics of American Culture

     The American ruling elite maintains:

      The "High Cabal" believes America is great because it allows a few to amass wealth without regard for other people or the earth.

     On the contrary, the reason America has risen to its eminent position among nations is its dedication to constitutional liberties. Living as free men and women, Americans have been extraordinarily creative in every area of human life and the best among them have understood "how much of what they cherish as progressive has come by emancipation from political dominion, by the limitation of power, by the release of personal energy from authority and collective coercion." 4  No other nation on earth has institutionalized the freedoms that Americans enjoy.

     "The distinctive character of Western Civilization rests on its Christian heritage, its scientific outlook, its humanitarian elements, and its distinctive point of view in regard to the rights of the individual and respect for women rather than in such material things as firearms, tractors, plumbing fixtures, or skyscrapers, all of which are exportable commodities."

Quigley, Carroll. Tragedy and Hope

Fascism Will Destroy America

     As we've seen in the article on the growing police state in the United States, the current Bush administration is rapidly attacking and undermining constitutional liberties. Fascists of all stripes believe "that the great mass of mankind is naturally docile; that, by exterminating the minority and drilling the mass, significant dissent will disappear. Hence the claim of the fascist states to an absolute monopoly of all agencies of education, intelligence and culture." 5

     Fascism involves the intense militarization of a people for war. Fascism, in essence, is martial law and as such is contradictory to and destructive of democracy. If the full force of fascism is brought to bear in the United States, the country will turn into a Nazi Germany.

     American citizens need to know the grand imperialist scheme that the criminal "High Cabal" is carrying out. Only by understanding it fully will we be able to defeat this murderous plot of the plutocrats.

     The imperialist schemers are so sure of themselves that they don't hesitate to publish their conspiracy plot to conquer the world politically, economically, and militarily. Mandarins such as Kissinger, Brzezinski, Wolfowitz, and a host of others, draw up the blueprints for a world police state. By studying their imperialist designs we can understand just how the "High Cabal" plans to seize complete world dominance and maintain it.

     In his book The Grand Chessboard, Brzezinski lays out the scheme in unvarnished terms.

     "To put it in a terminology that hearkens back to the more brutal age of ancient empires, the three grand imperatives of imperial geostrategy are to prevent collusion and maintain security dependence among the vassals, to keep tributaries pliant and protected, and to keep the barbarians from coming together."

     If you don't recognize your place in that schema, you're one of the barbarians. "Vassals" are people like Blair, Sharon, and Putin (among others) and "tributaries" are lesser factotums such as the Saudi royals, Musharaf, Karzai, and the South American dictators the cabal puts into power.

      The reason common citizens are considered by this junta to be "barbarians" is that we could prove recalcitrant and antagonistic to their plot to take away our constitutional liberties. We might even rise up and speak out against their fascist plunder.

     Just what is the first necessity for this grand imperialist scheme of world domination? The answer might surprise you.


     "America's global primacy is directly depen- dent on how long and how effectively its preponderence on the Eurasian continent is sustained." 6

     Why Eurasia?

     "A power that dominates Eurasia would control two of the world's three most most advanced and economically productive regions. A mere glance at the map also suggests that control over Eurasia would almost automatically entail Africa's subordination, rendering the Western Hemishphere and Oceania geopolitically peripheral to the world's central continent . . .   About 75 percent of the world's people live in Eurasia, and most of the world's physical wealth is there as well, both in its enterprises and underneath its soil. Eurasia accounts for about 60 percent of the world's GNP and about three-fourths of the world's known energy resources . . .

"Eurasia is also the location of most of the world's politically assertive and dynamic states. After the United States, the next six largest economies and the next six biggest spenders on military weaponry are located in Eurasia. All but one of the world's overt nuclear powers and all but one of the covert ones are located in Eurasia. The world's two most populous aspirants to regional hegemony and global influence are Eurasian. All of the potential political and/or economic challengers to American primacy are Eurasian." 7

      Do you now see the significance of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars? The "War on Terrorism" is an important part of this world dominance plot.

      You'll notice that Brzezinsky's "Eurasia" contains Europe, the Middle East, Asia, and the Far East.

     "If the middle space can be drawn increasingly into the expanding orbit of the West (where America preponderates, if the southern region is not subjected to domination by a single player, and if the East is not unified in a manner that prompts the expulsion of America from its offshore bases, America can then be said to prevail. But if the middle space rebuffs the West, becomes an assertive single entity [Russia-China], and either gains control over the South or forms an alliance with the major Eastern actor [Japan], then America's primacy in Eurasia shrinks dramatically. The same would be the case if the two major Eastern players were somehow to unite. Finally, any ejection of America by its Western partners from its perch on the western periphery [NATO] would automatically spell the end of America's participation in the game on the Eurasian chessboard, even though that would probably also mean the eventual subordination of the western extremity to a revived player occupying the middle space." 8

     If Eurasia is the chessboard on which the struggle for global primacy is to be played, then who are the key players? As in chess, there is a distinction between the major pieces (King, Queen, Rook, Bishop, Knight) and the pawns. Brzezinsky calls the major pieces "active geostrategic players" and the pawns "geopolitical pivots."

Active Geostrategic Players

Geopolitical Pivots

"Active geostrategic players are the states that have the capacity and the national will to exercise power or influence beyond their borders in order to alter--to a degree that affects America's interests--the existing geopolitical state of affairs."

"Geopolitical pivots are the states whose importance is derived not from their power and motivation but rather from their sensitive location and from the consequences of their potentially vulnerable condition for the behavior of geostrategic players."

France, Germany, Russia, China, India
(excluding Great Britain, Japan, Indonesia)

Ukraine, Azerbaijan, South Korea, Turkey, Iran

     As we examine their world domination plot, it becomes clear that the "High Cabal" considers all nations and people as mere pawns with which to play their game of global ascendance. No person or nation is important in their own right--only insofar as they contribute to or compete with the American imperialist junta.

     "Britain . . .  entertains no ambitious vision of Europe's future, and its relative decline has also reduced its capacity to play the traditional role of the European balancer. Its ambivalence regarding European unification and its attachment to a waning special relationship with America have made Great Britain increasingly irrelevant insofar as the major choices confronting Europe's future are concerned. London has largely dealt itself out of the European game." 9

     What Brzezinsky calls "geopolitical pivots" are pawns which serve some purpose in the "High Cabal's" world dominance scheme.

     "South Korea is a Far Eastern geopolitical pivot. Its close links to the United States enable America to shield Japan and thereby to keep Japan from becoming an independent and major military power, without an overbearing American presence within Japan itself. Any significant change in South Korea's status, either through unification and/or through a shift into an expanding Chinese sphere of influence, would necessarily alter dramatically America's role in the Far East, thus altering Japan's as well. In addition, South Korea's growing economic power also makes it a more important 'space' in its own right, control over which becomes increasingly valuable." 10

     Upon examining the American plutocratic junta's "grand" scheme, we discover why the Bush administration established military bases in Kazakstan and Uzbekistan even before the Afghanistan war began and why it is establishing many military bases in Iraq.

     "Of the five newly independent Central Asian states, Kazakstan and Uzbekistan are the most important.
Regionally, Kazakstan is the shield and Uzbekistan is the soul for the region's diverse national awakenings. Kazakstan's geographic size and location shelter the other from direct Russian physical pressure, since Kazakstan alone borders on Russia."

     In a correlative article on oil imperialism, we saw that a major part of the overall world dominance strategy is:

     In The Grand Chessboard, Brzezinski reveals how the global dominance plot required something like 9/11.

     "As America becomes an increasingly multicultural society, it may find it more difficult to fashion a consensus on foreign policy issues, except in the circumstances of a truly massive and widely perceived direct external threat." 11

     This sounds strikingly similar to a statement made by David Rockefeller:

"We are on the verge of a global transformation. All we need is the right major crisis and the nations will accept the New World Order."

"If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy."

James Madison, while a United States Congressman

     As we examine this world dominance plot of the ruling American junta, it becomes clear why Bush attacked Afghanistan and contrived a second war with Iraq, how Bush plans to contain Russia, China and Japan, and what this junta has in store for American citizens. The plan entails Americans losing their constitutional liberties because of the necessity of absolute control of the population.

     "The pursuit of power and especially the economic costs and human sacrifice that the exercise of such power often requires are not generally congenial to democratic instincts .  . . Democracy is inimical to imperial mobilization." 12

     Another lackey of the "High Cabal" earlier explained why loss of liberty by Americans is necessary to their schemes.

"Now let us suppose that the exigencies of the future, as we shall trace them out, point to the conclusion that only an authoritarian, or possibly only a revolutionary, regime will be capable of mounting the immense task of social reorganization needed to escape catastrophe. Might it not then be argued that the quasi-military devotion and sacrifice of such a task would be vitiated if the masses were exposed to the disagreements and diversions of intellectuals who strayed from, or opposed, the official line? "

Robert L. Heilbroner. (1974). An Inquiry Into the Human Prospect

     In the world police state envisioned by the "High Cabal" the masses are not to be exposed to the disagreements and diversions of intellectuals who stray from, or oppose, the official line.

     This is not the first time that rulers of a nation have created insane schemes for world domination. The hubris of the Bush administration seems unbounded, as Dubya tells the Palestinians to make a "regime change" or else American aid will be cut off. To the world, Dubya's "Axis of Evil" is laughable. Meanwhile he and his underlings have created a quagmire in Iraq and now make plans to invade Iran and possibly Syria and North Korea.

     We must make certain that we do everything in our power to see that they fail in their scheme to destroy American constitutional liberties and impose a world police state.

     "The road whereby mankind has advanced in knowledge, in the mastery of nature, in unity, and in personal security has lain through a progressive emancipation from the bondage of authority, monopoly, and special privilege. It has been through the release of human energy that men have lifted themselves above the primeval struggle for the bare necessities of existence; it has been by the removal of constraints that they have been able to adapt themselves to the life of great societies; it has been by the disestablishment of privilege that men have risen from the status of slaves, serfs, and subjects to that of free men inviolate in the ways of the spirit." 13

"But what more oft, in nations grown corrupt,
And by their vices brought to servitude,
Than to love bondage more than liberty --
Bondage with ease than strenuous liberty."

Milton. "Samson Agonistes"
