"If you want to see when (neo)conservatives were in
trouble, go back 35 years to 1973, the year the Heritage
Foundation set up shop. We were just a handful of people in a few
rented rooms. At that time there were no cable outlets like Fox News.
There was no (neo)conservative talk radio, because the Fairness Doctrine was
still in effect." - Edwin Feulner of the Heritage
"Look in any direction -
schools underfunded, environment degrading, civil liberties eroding,
economy in recession - and you see the

"Most of the original neo-cons started out as left
wing New York Jewish intellectuals. The neo-cons,
mostly former Trotskyites, had
the good fortune of changing their minds about almost everything starting in
the mid 1960's, just as the political fortunes of the left began to collapse. "
- Jonathan ChaitPerhaps one of the best examples of the shift from
liberal to neoconservative can be seen in the person of
"Neoconservatism usually has a
recognizable meaning. It connotes a potent moralism and idealism in world
affairs, a belief in America's exceptional role as a promoter of the principles
of liberty and democracy, a belief in
the preservation of American primacy and in the exercise of power, including
military power, as a tool for defending and advancing moralistic and idealistic
causes, as well as a suspicion of international institutions and a tendency
toward unilateralism. Even these deliberately polemical caricatures point to
something recognizable, a foreign
policy that combines an idealist's moralism, and even messianism, with a
realist's belief in the importance of power." -

"Many of the first-generation
neo-cons originally were liberal Democrats, or even socialists and
Marxists, often Trotskyites.
They drifted to the right in the 1960s and 1970s as the Democratic Party moved
to the antiwar McGovernite left. And concern for Israel loomed large in that
rightward drift." - Stephen J. Sniegoski

"Trotskyites," saw the wanning power of the Democratic party they changed their

"Jewish elements provide the driving forces for both
Capitalism (corporatism)." - Dr. Oscar
"It may be observed that both the extreme right and the extreme
left of the conventional political spectrum are absolutely collectivist. The national socialist
(for example, the fascist) and the
international socialist (for example, the Communist) both recommend
politico-economic systems based on naked, unfettered political power and
individual coercion. Both
systems require monopoly control of
society. An alternative concept of control ideas and
politico-economic systems would be
that of ranking the degree of individual freedom versus the degree of
centralized political control. Under such an ordering the
corporate welfare state and
socialism are at the same end of
the spectrum. Hence we see that attempts at
control of society can have different
labels while owning common features." - Antony Sutton
"One major factor
that drew the neo-cons inexorably to the right was their
attachment to Israel and their growing frustration during the 1960s with a
Democratic party that was becoming increasingly opposed to American military
preparedness and increasingly enamored of Third World causes [e.g., Palestinian
rights]. In the Reaganite right's hard-line
commitment to American military
strength, and willingness to intervene politically and militarily in the
affairs of other nations to promote democratic values (and American interests),
neocons found a political movement that would guarantee Israel's security." -
"A nation can survive its fools, and even the
ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the
gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But
the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers
rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself.
For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his
victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the
baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation,
he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the
city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist.
A murderer is less to fear.
The traitor is the plague." - Marcus
Tullius Cicero, in a speech to the Roman Senate, 42 BC

Most of these men were contributors to that
Project for the New American

blueprint for our American imperialism that has come to life since 911.
Even the strongest critics
from the Left, however, tend to see the neoconservatives as true believers,
motivated exclusively by a commitment to the supremacy of American and Israeli
power that is so all-consuming they are prepared to sacrifice economic
interests in favor of "security."
But this distinction, as Naomi
Klein puts it, is both artificial and amnesiac.
The right to limitless
profit-seeking has always been at the center of neoconservative ideology.
With the War on Terror, the
neocons didn't abandon their corporatist economic goals; they found a new, much
more effective way to achieve them.
Of course these Washington
hawks both our US citizens, and our dual-country US and Israeli citizens
are committed to an imperial role for the United States in the world and
for Israel in the Middle East.
Both in Israel and the US, we now have a
state of endless war abroad, and a security state at home." - Davidson

This web site is not a commercial web site and
is presented for educational
This website defines a
new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The
author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has
forged a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has
been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their
agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race.
Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious
practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This
web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the
Way of the Lumière Infinie - a rational gnostic mystery religion based
on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme
leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is
encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer
through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the
spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The
Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie are spelled out in detail on
this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their
religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."
This web site
in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the
violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels
desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already
controls the world economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global
industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse
of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of
global ecosystems. Civilization is based on cooperation. Cooperation does not
occur at the point of a gun.
American social mores and values have
declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international
cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to
deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional
buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior
corporate media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction
of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to
the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction
and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been
directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that
further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
