I note the usual excitement about getting hold of the small number of people responsible for 9/11 - along with the groups who help them - and
subjecting them to summary justice, usually involving hangings.
I was just wondering if anyone could think of an example from history where people have believed that a country's (or the world's) ills could be
cured by rounding up a secretive, manipulative minority and killing them?
Its good for the secretive manipulative minority since they can scapegoat one person to appease the masses of peoples
Kind like how Hitler got almost all the blame for WW2 and is widely regareded as the most evil person of the 20th century (personally he doesn't even
make my top 3); despite the fact that he was just a face/voice for the nazis and not even close to its real brainchild
Or the person who essentally put into motion the economic factors that put the Nazis in to power
Starting with the Young plan name for Owen Young owner RCA
But proposed by a man forgotten by history
Dr. Hjalmar Horace Greeley Schacht (22 January 1877 – 3 June 1970)
In 1905, while on a business trip to the United States with board members of the Dresdner Bank, Schacht met the famous American banker J. P. Morgan,
as well as U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt.
Schacht was a freemason, having joined the lodge Urania zur Unsterblichkeit in 1908.
He collaborated with other prominent economists to form the 1929 Young Plan to modify the way that war reparations were paid after Germany's economy
was destabilizing under the Dawes Plan. In December 1929, he caused the fall of the Finance Minister Rudolf Hilferding by imposing upon the government
his conditions for obtaining a loan. After modifications by Hermann Müller's government to the Young Plan during the Second Conference of The
Hague (January 1930), he resigned as Reichsbank President on 7 March 1930. During 1930, Schacht campaigned against the war reparations requirement in
the United States.
The BIS (bank for international settlements) was created by Hjalmar Schacht, Hitler's finance minister and governor of the Reichsbank and Montague
Norman, the governor of the Bank of England. The main purpose of the BIS was to facilitate the enormous repayments for reparations between countries
generated by WWI. However, during WWII, the BIS, under the direction of Thomas McKittrick, was responsible for helping Hitler loot the Gold from
conquered countries, for transferring tons of Gold Bullion Bars from the Bank of England directly to fund Hitler's campaign across Europe
He became a supporter of Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party, and served in Hitler's government as President of the Reichsbank and Minister of Economics.
As such, Schacht helped implement Hitler's policies of redevelopment, reindustrialization, and rearmament.
He was forced out of the government by disagreements with Hitler and other prominent Nazis in December 1937, and had no role during World War II. He
became a fringe member of the German Resistance to Hitler and was imprisoned by the Nazis after the 20 July plot.
After the war, he was tried at Nuremberg and acquitted. Schacht was not a member of the NSDAP and shared very little of their ideology. The British
judges favored acquittal, while the Soviet judges wanted to convict. The British got their way and Schacht was acquitted.
In 1953, Schacht started a bank, Deutsche Außenhandelsbank Schacht & Co, and advised developing countries on economic development.
You tell me who had a greater impact on the 20th century Schacht or Hitler
The masses of people all to easily mistake pawns for kings
Allowing the devils and real master minds to simply change their name and continue on businesses as usual the only thing that needs to be new is their
appearances to the people who are fools to believe them.
