The New World Order
The Ten Kings of Revelation 17
One World Government - The Prophecy
The Bible teaches that in the final moments of earth’s history the entire planet will be under the control of a one world government. Ultimately an autocratic world ruler code named “the beast” will dominate world affairs. Through his agencies he will determine who is to live and who is to die. This despot will not bring peace. He will be the agent of chaos, destruction and despair.
The one called the beast will bring about a unity of all humanity by means of terror. We are told, that he will “cause as many as do not worship the image of the beast to be killed.”[i] His one concession to those who obey him will be the right of access to sufficient food, not to banish hunger, but only to maintain life. Food will be rationed for some, for others it will be totally denied. A situation will exist in which “no one should be able to buy or sell, except the one who has the mark, the name or the number of the beast."[ii] During the reign of the beast there will be what Daniel described as “a time of distress such as has not happened from the beginning of nations until then.”[iii] It is not too dramatic to say that at a timenot far from now the world that now is will be transformed into a house of horrors. And hardly anybody believes it will happen.
The Bible teaches that the beast will lead the world to worship the serpent deity who has given his power to the beast. Who is the serpent? He is identified in Revelation 12:9 as “the serpent of old who is called the Devil and Satan.” In the last days the entire world will be forced to worship Satan who will appear as a majestic being with the appearance of “an angel of light.”[iv]
The Bible does not say it exactly but there is a strong hint Satan will deceive the world by impersonating Christ. In the days of Elijah Israel was tricked into confusing Baal for Yahweh and it took the miracle of fire from heaven to manifest the difference. In the last days the world will be tricked into confusing Satan for Christ and Satan will use the same miracle to confirm error. “And he performed great signs, so that he even makes fire come down out of heaven.”[v]
The Bible identifies different characters that will be involved in the drama that will soon shake the world. Revelation 13 speaks of the serpent deity (Satan) and the beast. Revelation 16:13 links together the serpent deity, the beast and the “false prophet”. In Revelation 17:12 ten more identities are added to the list. Scripture speaks of “ten kings, who have not yet received a kingdom, but they receive authority as kings with the beast for one hour.” In a parallelism in Revelation 18:3 the “kings of the earth” are equated with “the merchants of the earth.”
According to Bible prophecy the ruling elite of
the one world government will be made up of the beast, the false prophet
and “ten kings” (the merchants of the earth) who govern the world under
the supervision of the beast. The purpose of this study is to show that
the “merchants of the earth” are on the verge of fulfilling their prophetic
of reigning as the kings of the earth.
One World Government and the 10 Kings of Revelation 17
The idea that there is a behind-the-scene attempt to set up a one-world government is not the creation of a lunatic fringe. Malachi Martin was a close confidant of Pope John Paul II with access to intelligence data of the highest level. He held private audiences with the Pope. It would be difficult for anyone to be better informed on the trends in international politics than he was. In the introduction to his epic book The Keys of This Blood he wrote the following words,
"Willing or not, ready or not, we are all involved in an all out, no-holds-barred, three way global competition. Most of us are not the competitors, however. We are the stakes. For the competition is about who will establish the first one-world government that has ever existed in the society of nations. … As to time factor involved, those of us who are under seventy will see at least the basic structures of the new world government installed."[vi]
Martin identifies one group of the contenders for world rulership as “Transnationalist”. The Transnationalists are heads of vast corporations and business interests who “operate from two principle bases of power. The first is the power base of finance, industry and technology.”[vii]
Martin states that these world financiers “all give speeches about the end to the nation system of our passing civilization.” [viii] Is there proof of Martin’s assertion? Yes! At a Bilderbergers Conference held in Germany in June 1991 David Rockefeller told an assembly of the world’s elite that the world was now ready to accept a world government under the jurisdiction of the world bankers. Rockefeller declared,
"The world is now more sophisicated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely more preferable to the national autodetermination practiced in past centuries."
At this point we need to observe one pertinent fact. One of the richest and most powerful men on the planet in an address to the other richest and most powerful individuals on earth stated that the time had come to set up a “world government” under the jurisdiction of “the supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers.” Rockefeller’s statement takes us out of the realm of imaginary conspiracy theories and speculation about possibilities and maybe’s and confronts us with a clearly stated intention of the world’s most powerful men.
President Bush mentioned the ‘New World Order’ in his commencement address at Texas A&M University May 12, 1989. "Ultimately, our objective is to welcome the Soviet Union back into the World Order. Perhaps the world order of the future will truly be a family of nations." President George Bush (January 1991) also stated: "If we do not follow the dictates of our inner moral compass and stand up for human life, then this lawlessness will threaten the peace and democracy of the emerging ‘New World Order’ we now see, this long dreamed-of vision we’ve all worked toward for so long."
The Seattle Post-Intelligence reported that Henry Kissinger, former Secretary of State, said: "Our nation is uniquely endowed to play a creative and decisive role in the new world order which is taking form around us."
Mikhail Gorbachev, in an address at the United Nations (December 1988) stated: "Further global progress is now possible only through a quest for universal consensus in the movement towards a new world order." [ix] In an article in the Straits Times dated March 29, 2002 Louise Branson wrote,
These days, Washington is a place where there is the sense that the world is up for grabs, that the early 21st century is a time when a new world order is emerging. Few believe they know how it will look definitively, say, five years from now. American academics and think-tank experts have taken to talking of the United States as the new Rome, a dominant empire with unprecedented power and global reach.[x]
Dan Smoot, a former member of the FBI staff in Washington conducted an investigation of the aims of the Council on Foreign Relations. He concluded that, “The ultimate aim of the Council on Foreign Relations [is] to create a one-world socialist system and make the United States an official part of it.”[xi] Deputy Secretary of State Strobe Talbott, Clinton's roommate at Oxford, wrote this in Time magazine, July 20, 1992:
"All countries are basically social arrangements.…
No matter how permanent and even sacred they may seem at any one time,
in fact they are all artificial and temporary.… Within the next hundred
years … nationhood as we know it will be obsolete; all states will recognize
a single, global authority."
The New (Economic) World Order
In an article entitled Free Global Economy From Corporate Highjackers, Someshwar Singh writes,
"There are 193 nations in the world, many of them ostensibly democratic, but most of them are dwarfed by the corporations that alone decide what will be produced, and where, and how much people will be paid to do the work. In effect, these multinational enterprises have become a kind of covert world government - motivated solely by profit and unaccountable to any citizenry. Only a small group of humans on the planet, roughly overlapping the world's 475-member billionaires’ club, rules the global economy."[xii]
One of the foremost authorities on the International bankers that control the world is Dr. Carroll Quigley Ph.D., Professor of History at the Foreign Service School of Georgetown University. He has taught at Princeton and at Harvard University. His classic book Tragedy and Hope, published in 1966, explains the history and purpose of this international network of bankers.
Quigley states the goal of this international network was to establish a one world financial system under their control. He writes, "… the powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than a world system of financial control in private hands to dominate the political system in each country and the economy of the world as a whole."
Quigley says, "I know of the operations of the network because I have studied it for twenty years and was permitted for two years, in the early 1960’s, to examine its paper and secret records (p. 950)." He goes on to say that he has no aversion to its aims and only believes the network should be known because of it role in history. But the network "wishes to remain unknown."
According to Chakravarthi Raghavan the Chief Editor of South-North Development Monitor (SUNS) by virtue of their having total control of world finances the world bankers have in effect already conquered the world. He identifies the current activities of the world bankers as “financial warfare [that] knows no territorial boundaries”. Raghavan writes,
"This manipulation of market forces by powerful actors constitutes a form of financial and economic warfare. No need to recolonise lost territory or send in invading armies. In the late 20th century, the outright 'conquest of nations', meaning the control over productive assets, labour, natural resources and institutions, can be carried out in an impersonal fashion from the corporate boardroom: commands are dispatched from a computer terminal, or a cellphone. The relevant data are instantly relayed to major financial markets - often resulting in immediate disruptions in the functioning of national economies."[xiii]
At a summit on world trade Cuban President Fidel Castro identified world economics as a war zone. According to his understanding, “in the hands of the rich countries, world trade is already an instrument of domination.”[xiv]
In a release by The Third World Network entitled, “Unrestricted Globalization Would Lead to Disaster”, Thalif Deen identifies Wall Street bankers as a quasi world government. He writes,
"Martin Khor of the Third World Network, explained how international economic policy was governed by institutions which served the interests of large corporations and banks, particularly by the IMF and the WTO. … “The world is not ruled by a military-industrial complex any more, but by a Wall Street-Treasury-IMF complex”.
Lets us summarise what we have seen so far:
(1) (1) David Rockefeller promotes the concept of a “world government” under the control of the “supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers.”
(2) (2) Deputy Secretary of State Strobe Talbott in Time magazine, July 20, 1992: declared “nationhood as we know it will be obsolete; all states will recognize a single, global authority."
(3) (3) Someshwar Singh wrote in his article that “these multinational enterprises have become a kind of covert world government.”
(4) (4) Cuban President Fidel Castro has pointed out that “world trade is already an instrument of domination.”
(5) (5) Martin Khor expressed concern that “The world is not ruled by a military-industrial complex any more, but by a Wall Street-Treasury-IMF complex.”
(6) (6) Carrol Quigley stated that the goal of the international bankers is to establish “nothing less than a world system of financial control in private hands to dominate the political system in each country and the economy of the world as a whole.”
(7) (7) Dan Smoot after investigating the aims of the Council on Foreign Relations concluded, “The ultimate aim of the Council on Foreign Relations [is] to create a one-world socialist system.
The forces that are intent on creating a one world government want to divide the world to ten interdependent and mutually interacting regions. One of the agencies promoting a one world government is the Club of Rome, a collection of the mega rich and intellectual elite that established a think tank in Rome in April 1969. The Rockefeller family is part of this group. To all appearances the architect of the Club of Rome was Aurelio Peccei, an Italian industrialist with connections to the FIAT and Olivetti Corporations. On September 17 1973 the COR issue a report authored by Mihajlo Mesaroviv and Eudard Pestel that expressed a vision for the world. In the COR report the world is divided into ten olitical/economic regions which are called “kingdoms.” In his summary of the report by Mesaroviv and Pestel Peccei stated,
Their world model, based on new developments of the multilevel hierarchical systems theory, divides the world into ten interdependent and mutually interacting regions of political, economic or environmental coherence … .[xv]
Revelation 17 teaches that in the closing moments of world history “ten kings” identified as “the merchants of the earth” will for “one hour”, or “a little while”, set up a one world government. This one world government will abolish all nation states and political boundaries and will “divide the world into ten interdependent and mutually interacting regions.” After they have set up this government prophecy says, “they [will] give their power and authority to the beast.”
The ground work needed to bring the prophecy of the ten kings in Revelation 17 to a complete fulfilment has already taken place. Every day the world is never more than twenty four hours away from the fulfilment of the prophecy concerning the ten kings of Revelation 17. Those who propose to set up a one world government already have total control over the worlds economy. They have already divided the world into ten economic zones to suit their purposes. They are one crisis of their own making away from putting their plan into effect. One writer put it this way,
Transgression has almost reached its limit. Confusion
fills the world, and a great terror is soon to come upon human beings.
The end is very near. We who know the truth should be preparing for what
is soon to break upon the world as an overwhelming surprise.[xvi]
The Ten Kings Plunder the Earth
According to Chakravarthi Raghavan,
In 1997, more than $100 billion of Asia's hard currency reserves had been confiscated and transferred (in a matter of months) into private financial hands … leading to mass poverty in countries which had in the post-war period registered significant economic and social progress.
The belief that the Asian economic crisis was the result of a deliberate decision is popular in Asia. Chandra Hardy writes,
There is no basis for the claim that the Asian financial crisis was due to a lack of sound economic fundamentals. The currencies of the affected countries were forcibly devalued and their financial systems were brought to ruin by the activities of speculators. The Director of the World Bank's office in Indonesia went so far to say, as he watched the decline in the value of the currency caused by the rapid pace of capital outflows, that 'This has nothing to do with economics’.”[xvii]
In his article Human Rights and the New World Order Richard Moore writes,
The NWO's ideological and economic agendas are globalized laissez-faire capitalism, hiding under the rhetoric of "free trade" and "increased competitiveness". Not to be confused with free enterprise, entrepreneurial capitalism, or classical free market economics, laissez-faire turns over control of domestic and international economies to an elite clique of multinational corporations. Free trade and fair competition are the last thing this clique wants - predatory monopoly capitalism (such as was prevalent with the 19th century Robber Barons: Rockefeller, Carnegie, Krupp, et al) - is their preferred mode of operating. The so-called "free trade" treaties are not about trade, but about opening up the world's economies, resources, and labor pools to unregulated exploitation by the multinationals. The NWO's political agenda is the erosion of national sovereignty and democracy, with power being transferred by various treaties (such as GATT, NAFTA, and Maastricht) to various commissions and organizations. These entities exhibit few or no democratic characteristics, but are designed to represent the interests of the NWO corporate elite.[xviii]
According to Eric Toussaint, President of the Committee for the Cancellation of the Third World Debt (COCAD),
Public Development Aid has reached an all-time low. It has dropped by 33% since 1990 while the amounts repaid by the entire Third World have not ceased to increase. In 1998, the Third World taken as a whole repaid $250 billion whereas Public Development Aid barely scraped past the $30 billion mark. This means that the Third World transferred eight times as much to the rich countries as it received from the so-called generous Public Development Aid. According to the World Bank, between 1987 and 1998, worldwide, the number of people living below the absolute poverty line (less than $1 per day) increased from 1,200 to 1,500 million.[xix]
Scott Latham claims the International Monetary
Fund and the World Trade Organisation are a mere front for super rich bankers.
He says that through these agencies the world bankers “seek managed trade,
not free trade”.[xx] According to him, “Results-based trade policy
is not about opening markets at all; it is about granting special favors
to prominent and politically powerful U.S. industries.“[xxi] The economic
intention of WTO trade agreements is not about creating wealth for poorer
states, it is about exploiting their natural resources and manpower and
redistributing their merger wealth back to the rich. At a summit meeting
of first and third world leaders to discuss the economy Fidel Castro complained
that the policies of the IMF and the WTO were directly responsible for
the “killing [by] hunger and preventable or curable diseases
more men, women and children every three years than all those killed by World War II in six years.”[xxii]
Joseph Stiglitz, a former chief economist at the World Bank writes,
I was chief economist at the World Bank from 1996 until last November, during the gravest global economic crisis in a half-century. I saw how the IMF, in tandem with the U.S. Treasury Department, responded. And I was appalled. … The IMF likes to go about its business without outsiders asking too many questions. In theory, the fund supports democratic institutions in the nations it assists. In practice, it undermines the democratic process… .[xxiii]
One of the tactics of the International Monetary Fund is to lend huge loans to various countries which enables them to build up their infrastructure and then call in their loans at a critical point that is timed precisely to cause massive destruction to local economies. Paul Kugman writes,
Whatever one's views about the ultimate causes of the Asian crisis, the proximate cause--the shock that turned miracle into debacle--is not in dispute: the global capital market did it. … In 1996 alone, foreign banks lent the countries now in crisis more than $100 billion, and nonbank investors poured in tens of billions more. These enormous inflows of capital allowed Asian countries to spend far more than their incomes. In the second half of 1997, however, those same banks called in more than $50 billion worth of loans.[xxiv]
Sebastian Edwards, formerly the World Bank's chief economist for Latin America, referred to the IMF as "participating in a big charade" because he says the funding programs imply that "there is a high probability that the country will attain balance-of-payment viability in the near future. For many countries this is not the case and everybody knows it.”[xxv]
In effect, countries were told to forget about macroeconomic policy; instead of trying to prevent or even alleviate the looming slumps in their economies, they were told to follow policies that would actually deepen those slumps. … far from fighting the slowdown in its economy, Brazil -- like Thailand and South Korea -- is being instructed to take steps that will clearly ensure a nasty, perhaps disastrous, recession. [xxvi]
In an article written by Christian Wheller in the Economic Policy Institute one heading reads, “MNBs (Multi National Banks) shrink supplies of external financing and destabilize host economies.” :Another states: “Increased competition from large foreign lenders threatens domestic banks, raises financial instability.”[xxvii] A Third World Network release entitled “Global currency speculation and its implications“ says “In the following excerpt from remarks at an International Forum on Globalisation (IFG) seminar, Bernard Lietaer focuses on the alarming increase in global currency speculation. The potential implications are truly explosive, threatening global power arrangements, the sovereignty of nation-states, and the abilities of ordinary people to survive.” Many are coming to the belief that this financial instability is part of an IMF agenda.
Kevin Danaher co-founder of Global Exchange, and editor of the new book, Globalize This: The Battle Against the World Trade Organization and Corporate Rule, stated in an interview,
We are going to make it very difficult for them to have business as usual, because we feel, in a global market economy, where there's 30,000 children dying every day from the effects of hunger, not because there's not enough food, or their parents are stupid or something like that … but because the market redistributes wealth toward those who have money, and away from those who don't have money, that's why those children are starving.[xxviii]
Commenting on a book by Paul Krugman the writer of the article says,
Krugman's latest book, The Return to Depression Economics (Norton, 1999), depicts Washington's approach to the Asian crisis as a crude bid to impoverish the region in order to increase control by US-based financial and corporate interests. … Krugman's book is full of examples of how unregulated markets lead to irrational and politically-motivated results, reflecting power relations far more than resource optimization.[xxix]
Chakravarthi Raghavan claims that as a direct result of the fiscal policies imposed by the IMF “poverty in Thailand can be expected to increase by at least one-third.”
In an article entitled “Globalization weakens poor countries further.” Gustavo Gonzalez wrote,
The World Bank stated today that globalization is condemning some nations to total poverty, and has reached a point where they are no longer "developing countries" but "perpetually weak economies."[xxx]
According to Michel Chossudovsky in his article, ”Financial Warfare' Triggers Global Economic Crisis”,
As financial markets continue to tumble and as national economies sink deeper into recession, it is clear that the East Asian crisis has developed into a global economic crisis. The international money managers [have] whittled away the capacity of national governments to effectively respond to such 'financial warfare', these powerful forces are working to secure even greater control … and a more direct role in the shaping of the international financial and economic environment. … The plunge of national currencies in virtually all major regions of the world has contributed to destabilizing national economies while precipitating entire countries into abysmal poverty.[xxxi]
Chossudovsky points out that powerful interests deliberately create an economic crisis in order that the world bankers can increase their personal power and wealth. He says,
The appropriation of global wealth through this manipulation of market forces is routinely supported by the IMF's lethal macro-economic interventions which act almost concurrently in ruthlessly disrupting national economies all over the world. … The ruble's free-fall had spurred Moscow's largest commercial banks into bankruptcy, leading to the potential takeover of Russia's financial system by a handful of Western banks and brokerage houses . [F]ollowing the first injection of IMF 'shock therapy' …[in] 1992, some $500 billion worth of Russian assets - including plants of the military industrial complex, infrastructure and natural resources - have been confiscated (through the privatization programs and forced bankruptcies) and transferred into the hands of Western capitalists. In the brutal aftermath of the Cold War, an entire economic and social system is being dismantled[xxxii]
Chossudovsky quotes renowned currency speculator and billionaire George Soros (who made $1.6 billion of speculative gains in the dramatic crash of the British pound in 1992), as saying 'extending the market mechanism to all domains has the potential of destroying society'. [xxxiii]
We maybe only ONE crisis away from an economic Armageddon.
Is the final crisis NOW working itself out?
Will the collapse of the Japanese economy trigger a TOTAL world monetary collapse?
Thalif Deen reports that the UN Secretary General has expressed grave concerns about the ultimate effects of trade deregulation and globalization:
UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan Sunday told a gathering of world economic and political leaders that unrestricted and unregulated globalization can lead to unmitigated disaster worldwide.
The average citizen has no idea that the world economy is tilting outwards on a precipice and that a gigantic collapse of the economy unrivalled in world history is an absolute certainty. Who wants to be told that the world monetary system is a heartbeat away from total collapse? But Bible prophecy is being fulfilled. The timing of a world depression may be determined in Japan.
The Japanese economy is so huge it represents the cornerstone of the world’s economy. When it goes kaput, as it inevitably will, and soon, every economy on the planet will collapse with it.
According to a BBC news bulletin dated February 2 2002,
The Japanese economy is stagnating and there is no evidence things are going to get any better The chairman of the Sony Corporation, Norio Ohga, has warned that the Japanese economy is close to collapse and could trigger a world recession. Mr Ohga told a news conference the economy is facing its most difficult time ever and could enter a long spiral of deflation. "The Japanese economy is on the verge of collapsing and could trigger a world recession. The Japanese Central Bank released a survey showing that Japanese executives were pessimistic about the country's prospects. " [xxxiv]
C Fred Bergsten, director of the Institute for International Economics USA stated "The situation is getting worse. … Japan should declare a bank holiday - shut down the banking system - and close about half of the banks, because half of the banking system is insolvent.”
In an ABC news release dated March 8 2002 reporter Mark Simkin stated,
Japan … remains mired in one of its worst recessions. Figures out today, show a third successive quarter of economic decline Japan's GDP contracting by over 1 per cent in the last three months of last year. All this is putting enormous pressure on the country's banking system and stoking fears of a major financial crisis in the world's second largest economy. Japan remains mired in one of its worst recessions. … We are one step away from a crisis. It's a mess. …. On April 1,  the government will stop guaranteeing many bank deposits. There's a risk nervous customers will withdraw all their money, putting enormous pressure on a financial system some believe is already technically insolvent.[xxxv]
Bernard Lietaer points out that that not merely the economy but the monetary system itself is heading for a massive crash. We may be approaching the used-by-date of the U.S. dollar.
'The biggest concern today is the growing constituency
for instability.' [says] Paul Volcker, ex-governor of the Federal Reserve,
in Changing Fortunes. 'Instability is cumulative, so that the eventual
breakdown of freely floating exchanges is ensured', [said] George Soros,
the largest currency speculator today, in The Alchemy of Finance. They
both agree that there are many more people now who have an interest in
profiting from instability; previously, they had an interest in stability.
If you have an unstable system, it is just a question of when it will fly
off the handle. It will blow apart at the moment when the US dollar experiences
a crisis. When the dollar crisis occurs, the world will have no system
A Parallel Prophecy
In Daniel 11 we are given a prophecy concerning the king of the north. The king of the north is identified as saying “unheard of things against the God of Gods.” This links the king of the north to the little horn in Daniel 7:25 who prophecy says “will speak against the Most high and oppress his saints.” The little horn in Daniel 7, the beast of Revelation 13 and 17 and the king of the north in Daniel 11 are the same entity. We are told that the king of the north “will show no regard for the god of his fathers, or for the one desired by women (in prophecy a woman is a symbol for a church). … Instead of them he will honour a god of fortresses.” In ancient times the god of fortresses was a goddess. Feminine deities were universally depicted as wearing a crown in the shape of a fortress tower patterned on the worship of the original goddess Semiramis. The distinctive mark of the final antichrist will be the worship of a feminine deity. The practice of Mary worship fulfils this prophecy.
We are told that when the king of the north comes to power “he will greatly honour those who honour him. He will make them rulers over many and distribute the land for a price.” This a direct reference to the power sharing between the ten kings and the beast in Revelation 17:12.
And the ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have not yet received a kingdom, but they receive authority as kings with the beast for one hour.
Prophecy says that the ten kings “give their power and authority to the beast.” In order to give their authority to the beast they must first have that authority. What do we have. We have “the merchants of the earth” on the verge of setting up a one world government structured on the abolition of national boundaries and the division of the world into ten economic zones. This means that Revelation 17 is not a future prophecy, it is a prophecy in the process of fulfilment.
We are not epochs or years away from final world events, we are in the middle of them. Years ago the Seventh-day Adventist Church was given a warning by an appointed messenger.
The work of the people of God is to prepare for the events of the future, which will soon come upon them with blinding force. In the world gigantic monopolies will be formed. … A few men will combine to grasp all the means to be obtained in certain lines of business.[xxxvii]
The ‘time of trouble, such as never was,’ is soon to open upon us; and we shall need an experience which we do not now possess and which many are too indolent to obtain. It is often the case that trouble is greater in anticipation than in reality; but this is not true of the crisis before us. The most vivid presentation cannot reach the magnitude of the ordeal.[xxxviii]
How is it that the world and even most professed Christians are ignorant of these things? When asked to give a toast before the prestigious New York Press Club in 1953, John Swinton, the former Chief of Staff at the NEW YORK TIMES, made this candid confession,
"There is no such thing, at this date of the world's history, as an independent press. You know it and I know it. There is not one of you who dares to write your honest opinions, and if you did, you know beforehand that it would never appear in print. I am paid weekly for keeping my honest opinions out of the paper I am connected with. Others of you are paid similar salaries for similar things, and any of you who would be so foolish as to write honest opinions would be out on the streets looking for another job.
If I allowed my honest opinions to appear in one issue of my paper, before twenty-four hours my occupation would be gone. The business of the journalist is to destroy the truth; to lie outright; to pervert; to vilify; to fawn at the feet of mammon, and to sell the country for his daily bread. You know it and I know it and what folly is this toasting an independent press. We are the tools and vassals of the rich men behind the scenes. We are the jumping jacks, they pull the strings and we dance. Our talents, our possibilities and our lives are all the property of other men. We are intellectual prostitutes."
