The Revolutionary Movement: A Diagnosis of World Disorders by John Findlater

What is going on in America? “Lock-downs”, riots in 100 cities, mass unemployment, the destruction of small businesses. This rare little book ties current events into the great chess game of history. John Findlater writes: “…the subversion, or destruction, of every incompatible civil government, to make way for one great Super-State; the erection of this sole and universal empire under a single irresponsible despot; the setting of States at war one with another as one ready means of conquest; the fomenting of civil disturbances and revolutions as another effective means to the same end; the penetration of every country by a highly organized spy system; the appeal to mob law wheresoever it could be made to serve the purpose; the amassing of wealth by fair means or foul; the subsidizing of revolutionary elements in Civil States; the promotion to high place of men with dark blots upon their escutcheons, which could be used as guarantees for their pliability and subserviency; the use of deceit and treachery, of forgeries and fictions, both to promote and to conceal the real objectives of the conspirators; the fostering in some areas of superstition and in others of atheistic disposition as counteragents to religion and piety; the play on the superstitious desires and hopes and fears of women; the production of concussive effects by the spread of atheism among men; the undermining of constituted authorities by the stirring up of sedition; the engineering of schemes making for their ultimate ends; the inculcation of pleas that members of the Council had in reality no rights, but duties only; the dragooning of these in order to supplement tutoring efforts; the browbeating of sturdy opponents when the grinding down and splitting up of parties in opposition had reached their limits; the employment of grim and stark duress upon hardy objectors — “Every one of those elements Quirinus had had occasion to note in the proceedings of the Jesuits; and in the Letters he analyzes what had been thus laid to his hand, exposing the results.
