Who Are the Power Elite?

The incident between Trump and the FBI exposed dynamics between a not-so-hidden ruling class and the myriad of security and intelligence agencies that seem to keep coming to be, without a say by us citizens. These dynamics were common knowledge not so long ago. Schooling and mass media succeeded at misinforming the masses about these entrenched backdoor power dynamics. Let’s see how we ended up here, whether we were destined to have a mass amnesia about this troubling facts, and what we can do right now to change this situation.

If there are directives of the ruling class being carried out by three-letter agencies, the question then logically follows: Who is the ruling class? And I would say it’s a touchy thing to talk about. A lot of people have deep emotional ties to the narrative that they’ve been indoctrinated through school and maintained through mass media over their lifetimes. So, these people don’t like to think that there’s anything like a ruling class. They like to think that they have a democracy. We also learned the false verbiage which that represents. We are supposed to have a constitutional republic, but only if the government is based on the Constitution. So when it gets outside of that, it’s hard to say we have a constitutional republic. It devolves into a literal democracy, which is a very useful middle ground between freedom and slavery that despots and tyrants like to take advantage of with their slippery slopes. Slippery slopes, like having you believe that there is no effective ruling class for this country or the world, for that matter. And I’m not going to cite something recent; I’m going to go back into history. Let’s go back to the year 1956 to find a book called The Power Elite, First Edition, by C. Wright Mills (published by the Oxford University Press). Let’s take a look at the table of contents.

We will go over The Theory of Balance shortly, but before we go there, let’s see what Wikipedia has to say About Mills and this book

The Power Elite (1956) describes the relationships among the political, military, and economic elites, noting that they share a common world view; that power rests in the centralization of authority within the elites of American society. The centralization of authority is made up of the following components …

Let’s go further and go to Wikipedia’s page on The Power Elite:

The Power Elite is a 1956 book by sociologist C. Wright Mills, in which Mills calls attention to the interwoven interests of the leaders of the military, corporate, and political elements of society and suggests that the ordinary citizen in modern times is a relatively powerless subject of manipulation by those three entities.

How much has changed? The only thing that changed is if you show or tell this to someone today, they would call you crazy. They would say, “There’s no group of people or powerful political interests shaping the world to make you feel powerless.” But the public was quite open about it then. This is a very popular book, especially among the ruling class. Their names are all through it. So let’s go back to the book. Let’s just go to the index real quick and whet our appetites: Carnegie, Corporations of Power, Allen Dulles, the DuPonts, Vannevar Bush, Henry Ford, John Kenneth Galbraith (and his relation to Klaus Schwab as Johnny Vedmore unearthed), the Gould family, Oliver Wendell Holmes, the Hotchkiss School, Khun Loeb and Company, Walter Lippmann, The Masons, Andrew Mellon, Gaetano Mosca, J.P. Morgan, Rhodes, Rockefeller, and Rothschild. You can find all three of them on the index. So for those of you who think that Rhodes, Rothschild, and Rockefeller aren’t among the power elite, it’s been known for over 70, 80 years at this point in academia.

I mean, let me just look at page 248 and show you the academic quality of this book:

text and footnotes

The page reads:

The prime focus of the theory of Balance is the Congress of the United States and its leading actors are the Congressmen. Yet, as social types, these 96 senators and 435 representatives are not representative of the rank of the file of the citizens. They represent those who have been successful in entrepreneurial and professional endeavors. Older men, they are of the privileged white native, born of native parents, Protestant Americans. They are college graduates and they are at least solid, upper-middle class in income and status. On average, they have had no experience of wage or lower salaried work. They are in short, in and of the new and old upper classes of local society.

The next page reads:

“Some members of Congress are millionaires. Others must scrounge the countryside for expense money. The expenses of office are now quite heavy, often including the maintenance of two homes and traveling between them, the demands of an often busy social life, and the greatly increased cost of getting elected and staying in office An outside income is now almost indispensable for congressmen; and, in fact, four out of five of the Representatives and two out of three Senators in 1952 received incomes other than their Congressional salaries ‘from businesses or professionals which they still maintain in their home, communities, or from investments. Independently wealthy men are becoming increasingly common on Capitol Hill … For those who are without private means … life as a member of Congress can border on desperation.'”

Today, instead of “businesses or professionals” we have lobbyist money and special interest groups that provide congressmen with outside income. So, Go. Read the book, for free. It’s on the Internet.

There is no excuse not to know this information. There is no excuse to tolerate the ignorance of people who say, “the Rothschilds or the DuPonts or the Rockefellers. They’re not really coordinating behind the scenes in some way, shape, or form through all these working groups, and non-governmental organizations that they sponsor to do a bigger picture.”

Andrew Carnegie’s words would say otherwise. So would Wahlberg’s words. You can read it in David Rockefeller’s memoirs. He and his family are a group of internationalists with the expressed interest in going beyond the American ideal to create a world government:

Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as “internationalists” and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure—one world, if you will. If that’s the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.

David Rockefeller wrote this twenty years ago. So for people to go around today, ridicule, and claim, conspiracy theory—that’s just their excuse for saying, I don’t know how to use my brain yet … I’ve never compared and contrasted that … I’ve only seen the little child’s view—the caricature of reality popularized through mainstream media I’ve never learned to think for myself … and I’m not really interested.

All right, leave those people to Jesus.

But, for everyone else, those who know how to pick up a book and read some words, how to communicate information to themselves and others. (You communicate to yourself by reading the pages. That’s comprehension. Then, you use your rhetorical skills to share this information with other people). For those with these skills—start a book club. Start there. Start with some historical evidence and something that depicts the actual reality that exists, like the book we touched on today. From there, truth is a lot easier to find.
