In the Wizard Of Oz, poor Dorothy, an innocent girl from Kansas, is swept away from her home by a tornado and lands in a strange world of witches, little people, a yellow brick road, and of course, the Cowardly Lion, the Tin Man and the Scarecrow. The Scarecrow dreams of having a Heart. The Cowardly Lion, of course, wants Courage, while the Tin Man wants a Brain. If these three had what they most desired, they would be happy. All Dorothy wants to do is go back home to Kansas. You know how it ends. After many travails, they arrive in Emerald City to seek the Wizard of Oz’s help in finding the things they most desire. The Wizard turns out to be a man behind the curtain who is full of bluster. There is a happy ending, as the Lion finds courage, the Tin Man gets his heart and the Scarecrow acquires a brain. Dorothy, however, finds out from the Good Witch, that she has always had the power to go back home. It is only for her to click her ruby slippers and voila, she returns to Kansas.
I mention the Wizard of Oz, because it is a parable of what we face today. Think about it. There is today, a hidden power that rules us, whether we admit it, or not. It is the power behind the Central Banks. This power is hiding behind the curtain. It is the Wizard.
“Since I entered politics, I have chiefly had men’s views confided to me privately. Some of the biggest men in the U.S., in the field of commerce and manufacturing, are afraid of somebody, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it.” — President Woodrow Wilson
Woodrow Wilson was aware of the “Man Behind The Curtain”. He also wrote, “I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated governments in the civilized world. No longer a government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men.”
Woodrow Wilson was talking about the Federal Reserve System which had been created during his Administration. Here is something else he wrote: “A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is privately concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men who, even if their action be honest and intended for the public interest, are necessarily concentrated upon the great undertakings in which their own money is involved and who necessarily, by very reason of their own limitations, chill and check and destroy genuine economic freedom.”
Wilson wrote these after he left office. In his retirement he came to understand what he had done by allowing the Federal Reserve, the privately controlled Central Bank of the United States to come into being. He wrote: “We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated Governments in the world.”
He came to understand the power that ruled from behind the curtain; a power he had aided in destroying his Country. It is not just the Federal Reserve System. It is the power that controls the Federal Reserve and the politicians who created and sustain it.
G. Edward Griffin wrote The Creature From Jekyll Island, where he tells of the creation of the Federal Reserve by a group of powerful bankers and politicians at a secret meeting on Jekyll Island. If you haven’t already read it, please do. It is well documented and well constructed.
Too see how these powerful people, “hiding behind the curtain”, use their power, I encourage you to read, or listen to, Michael Rivero’s All Wars Are Bankers Wars. I highly recommend it. In it he shows how the powerful bankers have encouraged and benefited from wars, beginning with our American Revolution and continuing throughout our history.
Today, the wars in Iraq, Libya, Afghanistan, Syria, Mali and the possibility of war with Iran and North Korea, are the result of this insidious force that hides behind the curtain. They are not about liberation, democracy, or freedom, they are about bankers’ profits and the ultimate control of the whole World by those who hide behind the curtain.
Those who have taken the time to look behind the curtain, and have seen who hides there, recognize it is a small group of very rich, very powerful people whose goal is the enslavement of the World. Their minions speak of freedom, justice, love and security, but it is all a false front, just as the bluster of the Wizard of Oz was a false front. It is themselves they serve, not we the people. We are cattle to them, to be herded or slaughtered at their pleasure.
In the Wizard of Oz, it is the man behind the curtain, the Wizard, who gives the heart to the Tin Man, courage the Lion, and a brain to the scarecrow, but this is a falsity. In real life, we give ourselves courage, by using our brains to realize threats to our security, and it is our heart that makes us realize our power. These three together have the ability to lead us to our “home”, which is our natural state of freedom. Just as Dorothy always had the ability to go home, so do we. It is necessary to first reveal those behind the curtain. Then, it is for us to use our brains, our hearts and our courage to route them out. They would have us believe they are too powerful to touch, but just like the phony bluster of the Wizard of Oz, when they are revealed, when they can no longer hide behind the curtain, they are shown to be human, just like you and me. Once revealed, they lose their power, for it is we who give them power by believing their bluster. Can a small number of people defeat billions if the billions reject them? No. We have the power to change things if we only have the courage, the brains and the heart to do so.
