extracted from ‘The Evil Twins of Technocracy and Transhumanism‘
Come, let us build ourselves a city and a tower
with its top in the heavens,
and let us make a name for ourselves.
The original story of the tower of Babel cast all the people in the world as being in agreement about building a tower up to heaven,
perhaps to drag God down out of heaven and deal with him on earth.
Whatever their intent, it turned out to be wishful thinking, as God himself broke up the party and scattered the conspirators.
The scene on modern earth is quite different, however.
Today, a small group of elitists are in agreement with each other on how to reshape the world…
If such a elitist group could now speak with a common language and purpose, it would be to say something like this:
We have dealt with God and he is dead.
We run things now for our pleasure.
We will reshape the structure and function of the world and then we will change you to fit into our new world.
We will be immortal, omniscient, and omnipotent. You will not.
You will be the resources we need to put our world in harmony.
We don’t care if you like it or not, because you are hopelessly trapped and are powerless to stop us.
They both make equal use of convergent science, or NBIC, to build a pseudoscience-based future.
Technocracy deals with the transformation of society in a way that puts human consumption in balance with the perceived availability of resources.
Transhumanism deals with the transformation of individual humans and their relationship to the technocratically run world.
We might say, then,
that technocracy is the architecture; transhumanism is the compliance.
Or, technocracy is the building; transhumanists are the tenants.
Or, even more precisely, technocracy is the building code for the construction of the new world; transhumanism is the building code for the people who will live there.
Because much of the world’s populace is resistant to, if not outright rebellious in the face of, these drastic changes – or would be, if they understood the plan – the technocrats and transhumanists have found it necessary to go to war with humanity and beat it into submission.
This new “axis of evil,” if you will, is collaborating to create a multifaceted winning strategy before the majority of people even know that an intentional war has been waged against them – and that they have already lost.
Wars throughout history have always been fought over territory, which has resulted in constantly fluctuating borders. This war is no different, except that it is orders of magnitude greater than any war preceding it.
This war seeks to erase all national borders, gather up all public land and all private property and put it into a single global common trust operated (and preferably owned) by the elitists themselves.
We see this overarching aim as far back as 1970, when Zbigniew Brzezinski penned Between Two Ages – America’s Role in the Technetronic Era:
The nation-state as a fundamental unit of man’s organized life has ceased to be the principal creative force:
International banks and multinational corporations are acting and planning in terms that are far in advance of the political concepts of the nation-state. 1
The Big Con
When elitist David Rockefeller invited Brzezinski to become a co-founder of the Trilateral Commission in 1973, Between Two Ages was the intellectual fodder that justified Rockefeller’s monopolistic dream of the greatest land grab in history.
Of course, Rockefeller was not alone in his quest to conquer the world, as evidenced by the like-minded cronies he invited to join the Trilateral Commission.
Nevertheless, the root of the Rockefeller family tree practically wrote the recipe for how to cook up a good con.
As I said of the original Rockefeller in my book Technocracy: The Hard Road to World Order:
Dr. William Levingston was actually an itinerant salesman with a phony name who created a concoction of oil and laxative and branded it as a cure for cancer.
Since cancer was a dreaded and usually fatal disease, people would buy and try literally anything for a cure.
He would explain that if his miracle cure was strong enough to beat cancer, then it would most certainly take care of a whole lot of other diseases as well!
When William came to a new town, he would mesmerize and trick people into buying his “miracle cure.”
As soon as anyone questioned his phony operation, he would ride out much faster than he had originally arrived. William was indeed a fraud and a con artist, but he somehow always managed to escape arrest or lynching.
He died in 1906 at the ripe old age of 95. Earlier in life, he reportedly bragged,
“I cheat my boys every chance I get. I want to make ’em sharp.”
However, Levingston’s name was indeed a fraud.
His real name was William Avery Rockefeller, Sr. and one of those “sharp” sons was John D. Rockefeller, who was soon to become the richest man in America and grandfather of David A. Rockefeller, founder of the Trilateral Commission in 1973. 2
This is the essence of a good con.
Get a compelling-looking prop and make up claims about it that nobody can prove or disprove. Match the prop to people’s most compelling needs and charge them money for it. When the money starts to dry up, get a new prop.
Not surprisingly, William Avery Rockefeller, Sr.’s nickname was “Devil Bill.”
The synthesis of science, scientism, and high-technology was a boon to the Rockefeller crowd, allowing them to “double-layer” the con.
In other words,
they could make science out to be god and then appoint themselves as the high priests.
Thereafter, the god of scientism posing as science could be made to say anything they wanted, while, as high priests, they could dodge any pushback by simply saying,
“Don’t blame the messenger for the message.”
In any case, few common folk understood science, and even fewer knew how to recognize pseudoscience, much less challenge it.
Today, the god of scientism says that global warming is going to torch the earth, that traditional sources of energy must be destroyed, and that we must all convert our actions to conform to Sustainable Development, aka technocracy.
The same god also says,
to curb our consumption of resources
to quit travelling beyond our national – or state, or even city – borders
to walk or bicycle to work
to live in tiny houses
to eat bugs…
The god of scientism that produced SARS-CoV-2 said,
“Wear a mask,” “Social distance,” “Isolate yourself,” “Don’t go to church,” “Science takes precedence over the Constitution,” and “Take an experimental mRNA-based injected therapy to save your neighbor.”
Every con has a pitch, a transaction, and an outcome.
We must not lose sight of the simplicity of the three-step move these con artists are making against us.
The pitch can take many forms.
Positive pitches include the seventeen Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) – eliminating poverty, education for all, jobs with dignity among them.
Negative pitches include global warming that will scorch the earth and invisible viruses that will kill millions.
Such fear-based pitches seduce us into listening to and accepting the con man’s proposed transaction.
But what is that proposed transaction?
Well, the only transaction we’re being offered is to dutifully, unquestioningly accept the seventeen holy SDGs.
And what is the outcome of our accepting that offer?
It’s to turn over all our individual choices for producing and consuming goods and services to the United Nations.
There is never a Plan B, only a Plan A.
So, has the con been consummated? Almost…
We have now reached the end game of the con, and humanity is perilously close to accepting it without further questions.
Polycrisis of Doom
In Chapter 9, “Who’s Driving This Train, Anyway?,” I showed that,
“Corporate is the dominant group that controls Political and Academic and that the white-hot core of Corporate is the central bankers.”
Indeed, it is Corporate that decides the end game.
Then it showers Academic with grants to write white papers to justify that end game. Meanwhile, Political serves as the lapdog to Corporate.
Politicians execute complementary policies that will lead to the end game.
The many hotspots in the war against humanity are not hard to identify.
Viewed collectively, they describe a well-orchestrated strategy by the globalists to conquer the world and usher it into the Great Reset, aka technocracy.
I have already discussed the war on traditional forms of energy, such as oil, gas, and coal.
This long-term effort has worn down the global economic system to a point of extreme fragility.
Alternative sources of energy, such as solar and wind turbines, are wholly inadequate to power the world in the manner that we in the West have become accustomed to.
Given that the purposeful, planned destruction of the energy system has been deliberately exacerbated by the war in Ukraine, it’s no surprise that what threatened to be a full-blown global energy crisis has now worsened into a tectonic disaster.
For one thing, shutting off Russia’s natural gas supply in European countries triggered their instant regret over having become so dependent upon Russia at the expense of energy self-sufficiency.
For another, Americans, too, are regretting the loss of energy independence, as gasoline prices have skyrocketed during the Biden Administration and a severe diesel shortage is emerging.
The war on traditional energy is actually decades old. In 1979, the now-late Professor Antony C. Sutton published Energy: The Created Crisis.
His prescient research uncovered a root cause of the war on energy:
In the October 1976 issue of Foreign Affairs, that quarterly Establishment oracle which reflects elitist thinking and intended action, we find an article by Amory B. Lovins.
Lovins is not a household word and has hardly made a scratch on the world of knowledge and ideas. However, merely because Foreign Affairs is his forum, Lovins’ ideas became acceptable, are widely reported and taken seriously by high officials.
Lovins is an instant engineer.
His aim is to substitute “soft” technology for hard technology, that is, windmills and solar panels for electric power stations and synthetic gas plants, all without a hint of economic or technical analysis.
In fact, Lovins writes as if analysis does not exist.
On commentator summed it up very well:
“Much of Mr. Lovins’ theory is reminiscent of certain ideas utilized by the People’s Republic of China during the years of the Great Leap Forward.”
A brief excerpt from Lovins will surface the approach:
“If you ask me, it’d be little short of disastrous for us to discover a source of clean, cheap, abundant energy because of what we would do with it…” 3
What was physicist Amory B. Lovins talking about?
What is it that “we would do with” clean, cheap, abundant energy?
We would actually use it abundantly…!
And that abundant use would, God forbid, allow for economic expansion, which in turn would lead to more resource consumption and a larger population, both of which are anathema to faux environmentalists like Lovins, who push a fake decarbonization agenda and ignore real pollution.
In 2014, Lovins wrote a book called Reinventing Fire, which reflects not only his own philosophy but the underlying philosophy of the entire Sustainable Development community:
Just as whale-oil suppliers ran out of customers in the 1850s before they ran out of whales, oil and coal are becoming uncompetitive even at low prices before they become unavailable even at high prices. 4
Lovins’ wife, Professor Hunter Lovins, is a member of the board of the Club of Rome and is internationally celebrated by the globalists for having pioneered Sustainable Development even before they hosted the Agenda 21 conference in 1992.
Time magazine, for instance, declared her the Millennium Hero for the Planet in 2000.
The global economy has been at great risk of instability ever since the industrialized world began converting to unreliable and costly alternative energy. Nations and communities have been lured into a false sense of security.
They were made to believe that all was well – that is, until this year, when the old-fashioned, reliable, abundant sources of energy were suddenly shut off.
War in Ukraine
Prior to Russia’s physical invasion of Ukraine on February 24, 2022, there was a long history of conflict and complexity between the two countries.
During the lead-up, most anti-war analysts were scratching their heads, asking why Western politicians seemed to be egging Putin on, as if daring him to attack.
Putin‘s initial and simple goal was to quickly take Kiev and effect a regime change in Ukraine.
It appears he vastly underestimated the resistance he would face, and it now seems like he has buried Russia in a multi-year, protracted war reminiscent of its involvement with Afghanistan.
There may be good reason for diplomacy via peace talks to stop the war, its cost, its killing, its long-term effects on innocent citizens and the world at large.
So far, the effect of the war has been to put three key existential issues on the table.
First, energy: Russia has an abundance of energy, while Europe has very little.
Second, food: Russia, being the largest exporter of wheat in the world, has an abundance of food, while Europe has a dearth, to the point where a potential famine is now predicted for parts of that Eurasian subcontinent.
Third, nuclear war: The West’s serviceable nuclear weaponry pales in comparison to Russia’s, and it is unlikely that Europe or the US could “win” in a nuclear conflict.
There is great fear throughout Europe that the Ukraine conflict will expand and literally spark WWIII.
Whether or not that will happen is immaterial to the psychological impact the threat of it has on the citizens of many countries. Europeans have keen memories of WWI and WWII, both of which were fought on their own soil.
They have good reason to be anxious.
Global Food Crisis
Throughout history, famine has naturally followed war.
But besides famine as a side effect of war, the intended destruction of food or limiting of food is an effective weapon of war.
Such is the case in Ukraine, where the war is being used as a weapon to disrupt the balance of global food production and distribution. Known as the “breadbasket of Europe,” Ukraine is one of the top three exporters of grain in the world.
More than seventy percent of its land mass is prime agricultural land particularly suited for grain production. 5
Because of the war with Russia, Ukraine’s grain exports are down 41.5 percent in 2022. 6
And since Russia is a prime exporter of fertilizer, it is not surprising that Russia abruptly cut off Ukraine’s supply of fertilizer, forcing farmers to purchase it elsewhere and sending prices skyward throughout Europe.
The global supply chain that moved food and fertilizer around the world has had to make major adjustments to restructure itself to make up for the shortfalls in various geographic areas, putting additional pressure on prices.
The war-related shock to food stability, however, was preceded by a broader and quieter attack on nitrogen-based fertilizers by “climate crisis” scientists, who have declared that a byproduct of such fertilizers – namely, nitrous oxide – is a destructive greenhouse gas.
Therefore, they have asserted, governments must greatly restrict farmers’ use of nitrogen-based fertilizers.
The atmosphere contains 78 percent nitrogen and is as essential to plant growth as is carbon dioxide.
Since plants cannot absorb nitrogen directly from the atmosphere, it must be added to the soil in other ways, either by natural means or as fertilizer. Thus, crop yields are directly related to the amount of usable nitrogen in the soil.
The Netherlands is the second-largest exporter of food in the world, after the US. 7
In May 2022, climate activists associated with the United Nations and the European Union convinced the Dutch government to order its farmers to cut their use of nitrogen-based fertilizer up to 70 percent by 2030.
If implemented and enforced, this ruling will have a devastating impact on food production and drive many Dutch livestock farmers out of business.
As a result, they have been rebelling with tractorcades – blockades of roads, warehouses, and grocery stores.
The government has openly revealed its disdain for farmers, as revealed by multiple press outlets:
This means many farms will have to radically change – or shut down altogether. The Hague has earmarked €25 billion to fund nitrogen-cutting techniques or to buy out certain farms.
“The honest story is that not all farmers can continue with their business,” the government said in June, prompting outrage. 8
The Netherlands is not an isolated case.
Canada is following the same agenda:
The Liberal government is pushing ahead with its goal, introduced in December 2020, to reduce absolute levels of greenhouse gas emissions arising from fertilizer use by 30 per cent below 2020 levels by 2030.
Specifically, it aims to reduce nitrous oxide emissions associated with synthetic nitrogen fertilizer use. 9
The Western Canadian Wheat Growers Association said in a press release:
Over the past several years, farmers have been seriously harmed by the carbon tax, transportation stoppages, non-science-based decision making and now with the proposed 30 per cent reduction in [nitrogen] fertilizer emissions. 10
When and where did this war on nitrogen begin?
In October 2019, the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) hosted a conference in Sri Lanka titled “Launch of United Nations Global Campaign on Sustainable Nitrogen Management.”
The conference declaration plainly states that its objective is to,
“develop national roadmaps for sustainable nitrogen management, with an ambition to halve nitrogen waste by 2030.” 11
Apparently, Sri Lanka took a dose of its own medicine and implemented a ban on fertilizers.
The Guardian reported on the resulting chaos:
For the farmers of Sri Lanka, their problems began in April last year  when President Gotabaya Rajapaksa, who now stands accused of pushing the country into financial ruin, implemented a sudden ban on chemical fertilizers. 12
Food ran out.
Protestors beat police and burned down houses belonging to thirty-eight high-ranking politicians.
President Rajapaksa was forced to flee in haste to Maldives.
Sri Lanka’s troubles were just starting, it turned out.
A year later, in 2022, the country,
“ran out of reserves, defaulted on its overseas bonds and couldn’t afford to import essential items such as food and fuel.” 13
Because these draconian, yet totally unnecessary, restrictions on nitrogen fertilizers had been underway from 2019 to 2022, the global food supply was already weakened to the point where a food shock like the war in Ukraine would have a devastating effect.
As a result, the ripples through the global agricultural food chain have turned into tsunamis, contributing significantly to the war on humanity.
There are one hundred and one financial and economic indicators we could examine, all of which point to serious problems with the global economy and, in particular, with the financial system.
I will save you a boring litany and cut to the chase. It’s not slow-moving economic trends but a lack of liquidity that precipitates crises.
Simply defined, liquidity refers to,
“how quickly an investment can be sold without negatively impacting its price.” 14
Stocks and bonds are considered relatively liquid, while real estate, art, and private businesses are not.
As part of their monetary policy, central banks control liquidity by easing or restricting credit and the supply of money.
When the Federal Reserve implemented quantitative easing (expanding liquidity) during the financial crisis of 2007-2008, it resulted in the Dow Jones Industrial Average increasing more than five times – from 6,450 in December 2008 to 36,679 in October 2021.
But beginning in March 15, 2022, the Federal Reserve began to do the opposite, draining liquidity from the financial system with a monetary policy called quantitative tightening.
Subsequently, the federal funds rate has been hiked six times, from 0.25 percent to 4 percent by November 2022.
During this short time period, mortgage rates have risen to over 7 percent, sending the housing market into a virtual collapse as stocks entered into bear market territory. Bond prices have plunged more than 35 percent.
One expected result:
Consumer inflation has temporarily driven up prices on everything that supports human life, from food to utilities to household goods.
The Fed’s finagling is destructive to wealth. It affects all Americans in real and tangible ways. Indeed, CNBC estimates that US consumers have lost between $9.5 trillion and $10 trillion in personal wealth. 15
The rich have been affected as well:
Mark Zuckerberg‘s personal wealth dropped by over $87 billion during 2022.
Elon Musk‘s fortune dipped by $66 billion.
Jeff Bezos has waved goodbye to over $90 million since July 2021.
The founders of Google, Sergey Brin and Larry Page, lost $71 billion between them. 16
When liquidity is engineered to drop rapidly and severely, all sorts of potential crises can arise and cause hair-trigger reactions.
Remember that liquidity is defined as,
“how quickly an investment can be sold without negatively impacting its price.”
Thus, as liquidity declines, the amount of time it takes to sell an asset increases.
If you must sell something quickly, you may find there is no market for it until it is priced much lower.
In the US, this expression of financial warfare can only be laid at the feet of our own central bank, the Federal Reserve. And because other countries’ central banks are following the same monetary policies, the result is a global shortage of liquidity.
What will trigger a global financial panic? Perhaps a stock market crash, a default on sovereign debt, or a major supply chain shock.
The ultimate outcome of a global financial panic is all but guaranteed: the destruction of the fiat currency system and the introduction of Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDCs).
This is a key objective of the World Economic Forum’s so-called Great Reset.
Make no mistake that the drive toward CDBCs is being orchestrated by the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) and its network of national central banks around the world.
Three years ago, BIS Managing Director Agustín Carstens announced the establishment of an Innovation Hub, 17 which will allow central banks to study the technology needed to implement CBDCs and related technologies.
The Innovation Hub is actually a network with centers located in,
Hong Kong, Singapore, Switzerland, London, Stockholm, Toronto, Frankfurt, Paris, and New York. 18
At the 2020 IMF Annual Meeting, Carstens revealed:
Our analysis on CBDC, in particular for the general use, we intend to establish the equivalence with cash, and there is a huge difference there.
For example, in cash we don’t know, for example, who is using a one-hundred- dollar bill. Today we don’t know who is using a one-thousand-pesos bill.
Today a key difference in the CBDC is that [the] central bank will have absolute control on the rules and regulations that will determine the use of that expression of central bank liability.
And also we will have the technology to enforce that.
Those two issues are extremely important, and that makes a huge difference with respect to what cash is. 19
In a more recent presentation, at the World Government Summit 2022 in the UAE, Dr. Pippa Malmgren revealed the exact plan. (By the way, she is ranked in the top five of the Most Powerful Women in Finance and is based in the City of London.)
Malmgren addressed the question,
“Are we ready for a New World Order?”
Her statement builds on Carstens’ comment:
We are on the brink of a dramatic change, where we are about to – and I’ll say this boldly – we are about to abandon the traditional system of money and accounting and introduce a new one.
And the new one – the new accounting is what we call blockchain. […]
It means digital. It means having an almost perfect record of every single transaction that happens in the economy, which will give us far greater clarity over what’s going on. 20
Coupled with global implementation of CBDCs is the central banks’ requirement for a universal ID system for everyone on earth.
Such a system is the only possible way for them to know, as Carstens put it,
“who is using a one-hundred-dollar bill.”
Meanwhile, Klaus Schwab‘s World Economic Forum has weighed in on the subject, expressing alarm that,
“the COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the need to identify and verify the identity of individuals and organizations across a wide range of sectors.”
Those sectors include health, employment, financial services, travel, government, e-commerce, and the gig economy. 21
The BIS itself has confirmed that,
“the most promising CBDC design would be one tied to a digital identity.” 22
In the context of the current financial war on humankind, CBDCs, coupled with universal digital identity, are equivalent to the chains of slavery that conquering hordes placed upon their vanquished victims in wars of centuries past.
CBDCs plus digital IDS will force every “enslaved” citizen of the world into spending patterns that are in harmony with Sustainable Development, aka Technocracy.
The implication for the noncompliant is that there will be consequences.
After all, this is war, wherein the aggressor tolerates no resistance…
The biological attack of SARS-CoV-2 is the most egregious attack on humanity in history.
Not that the virus itself was so damaging, but the response to it was a crushing blow.
A total of billions of citizens in almost every country were forced to submit to mandates that were not only useless, but destructive to health, wealth, and well-being.
Face masks did nothing to stop contagion; if anything, they caused illness and emotional pain.
Quarantine and isolation, also unnecessary for the most part, were comparable to martial law.
In America, the Bill of Rights was virtually suspended – make that eviscerated.
Churches were ordered closed.
Public gatherings were forbidden.
Governments ceased to respond to the pleas of citizens to stop issuing tyrannical dictates.
Then came the experimental mRNA injections that were rushed through without the rigorous and lengthy testing on humans that is traditionally required (actually, mandated) by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Of the billions who have been “vaccinated” worldwide, many millions have suffered adverse effects, some so severe as to cause death. Even those who have taken one or more injections but have so far suffered no side effects still face possible long-term health issues.
Legitimate doctors, scientists, and medical scholars have pleaded with government officials to halt these experimental drugs. But instead of being heeded, they are ignored, shunned, decertified, fired, and branded as conspiracy theorists or “vaccine” deniers.
The manufacturers of mRNA injections are resolute in their quest to continue blanketing the global population with additional mRNA-based “therapies” – an oxymoron to end all oxymorons.
The effect of the pandemic crisis that started in early 2020 has been to,
demoralize, disrupt, and degrade the general mental, spiritual, and bodily health of individuals throughout the world…
Furthermore, it has caused major damage to the global economy, to the global supply chain, and to the global financial system.
the crisis precipitated by the pandemic planners has been nothing short of an all-out war against mankind…!
There are only two areas in the world where illegal immigration is a major problem:
Europe and the United States.
Strangely enough, no one is seeking a better job or more freedom by sneaking into China, Russia, or Argentina.
The immigration invasion policy is not random or helter-skelter. It is the result of a calculated, long-term plot originally set in motion by the United Nations.
Europe has been intentionally and substantially disrupted and transformed in recent years into a multicultural society.
America’s southern border was thrown wide open after the November 2020 election of President Joe Biden. This premeditated plan was a continuation of the UN’s agenda to weaken nation-states in general and the US in particular.
Throughout world history, immigration has been used to conquer and transform nations. It dilutes and breaks down culture, language, moral standards.
It destroys the aggressed nation’s rule of law as the invaders introduce their own laws and customs. Even the intermarriage that often results from immigration inevitably causes a loss of national identity.
immigration is a time-tested and very successful element of war…!
Propaganda, censorship, and war go together.
They are three peas in a pod.
The globalist narrative, which promotes falsehoods and hides truth, is being broadcast day and night by a captured and controlled media complex.
Alternative media is treated as illegitimate and is subject to being driven out of business with phony fact-checkers, disruptive infiltrators, and intelligence agents – often one and the same.
The world has never before experienced such sustained, intensive, deceptive propaganda.
The problem, of course, is that many people believe the lies and become willing participants in their own capture by the forces of technocracy and transhumanism.
In this note I have given a brief sketch of the multipronged attack on humanity by the evil twins of technocracy and transhumanism.
I have covered the globalists’,
War on Energy
War in Ukraine
War on Food
War on Capitalism
War on Currency
War on Health
War on Culture
War on Media
The coup d’état that started in January 2020 with the advent of an engineered and orchestrated pandemic is far from over.
In fact, the war on humanity is still in its infancy. If nothing is done to stop it, the attacks will increase in frequency and amplification. Many will dismiss this assessment at their own peril.
They will be astonished when the figurative knife suddenly plunges into them and severs their own freedoms, their own individual sovereignty.
“We had no warning,” they’ll cry.
Or when a financial crisis turns the banking world upside down and quashes any semblance of financial privacy.
“It was so sudden,” they’ll cry.
Or when their personal property is confiscated by the government without cause and they cannot retrieve it.
“I didn’t understand,” they’ll cry.
Perhaps then they’ll remember having read this book or having heard an interview about it.
In the kind of wars I have described above, disasters and enemy breakthroughs always befall us suddenly, catching us unawares. By the time a cataclysm or enemy strikes, it is too late for us to combat it.
America is in the valley of decision. Americans must decide quickly if they will engage this enemy or not. For those who decide to remain silent, their silence becomes consent.
The words of Edmund Burke (1729-1797) are more prescient today than when they were first uttered:
“When bad men combine, the good must associate; else they will fall, one by one, an unpitied sacrifice in a contemptible struggle.” 23
