The Rise of the Textbook for World Conquest
Exactly what are The Protocols of the Wise Elders of Zion? How did this once-obscure document develop and grow to where it inspired conspiracy theorists for generations, encourage tyrants, and was able to strike fear in the hearts of many? Was this document the primary catalyst that encouraged global elitists to seriously consider the insane idea of world domination? Did such conspirators actually apply the diabolical principles in this sinister textbook for world conquest? Could these devastating Protocols be the crux of the unfolding of a New World Order?
Rather, was it really a hoax to begin with? Was there ever a genuine Jewish plot for world domination, or was the real conspiracy against the Jewish people themselves? Is there any truth within the folds of this enigmatic document? Do any current nations or dictatorships reflect any of these Protocols, or ever attempted to test them out in their own politics, policies, and economy?
How many separate individuals contributed to its creation and changed it over time, to where it became the ominous document it is today? Exactly who were these mysterious Elders of Zion, and what secrets did they know? Were these conspirators connected to certain secret societies? Once this document was circulated abroad, how strongly did it affect or inspire or horrify people who read it? I hope to address these questions to unravel the intriguing mysterious behind this dangerous document.
First, realize The Protocols of the Wise Elders of Zion was essentially a guidebook that laid out a detailed plan for world domination, supposedly by mysterious Jewish masterminds who were oddly connected to the Masonic Order. Although many believe the whole shenanigan began as a hoax, its strong anarchical language influenced many throughout the centuries.
There are two schools of thought regarding The Protocols: one claims they were a total forgery, the other declares that they were actual precepts of world domination by the Jewish elite, unknown leaders of the Chosen People. But when Jewish people vehemently declared this document was a forgery, many theorists claim this in itself is alluding that it is authentic, as if Jews wish to cover up some dark secret by denial. But if the Jews are not behind it, then other mysterious conspirators are endeavoring to make them the scapegoat.
Where did it all begin? What inspired this sinister document to be written? Back in 1864 in France, a man named Maurice Joly wrote a political satire called Dialogue in Hell Between Machiavelli and Montesquieu or the Politics of Machiavelli in the 19th Century by a Contemporary. It was largely based on the authoritarian politics of Emperor Napoleon III of France who supposedly planned to rule the world someday. Joly also used ideas from a novel by Eugene Sue called The Mysteries of the People, which claimed Jesuits were plotting a world takeover. The Semitic idea arrived a little later.
However, the actual Protocols document was largely pieced together and plagiarized from Dialogue in Hell and from a novel by the German Hermann Godsche, Biarritz, about two spies eavesdropping on a conversation between the devil and a group of Jewish elders, plus other earlier works, much of which involved anti-Semitism. This revised or patchwork manuscript which became The Protocols of the Wise Elders of Zion was finally written or plagiarized, in the 1890s, by a Russian Secret Police spy named Yuliana Glinka, although some researchers claim a Russian journalist name Matvei Golovinski had a hand in the fabrication of this document.
Many theorists claim this compiled work was originally written as an elaborate hoax to cause uprisings or rebellions and revolutions across Russia at the time. But likewise, anti-Semitists must have been eager to give Jews a sinister face in this forged manuscript. Blaming them naturally got someone else off the hook.
It was supposedly an inadvertently discovered document, most likely having slipped out of the hand of some absent-minded Zion Elder, and then copied and published for all to see, hence, revealing a secret massive Jewish plot against the world. No wonder Jews to this day deny its validity, outraged at such an accusation. Unless the rumor that it was a mere hoax was actually a cover-up, to conceal the possibility that it was the real McCoy. Also, it was published in an abbreviated version in a Russian newspaper in 1903, and later in the form of pamphlets to be circulated abroad. Whether hoax or not, it definitely caused quite a ruckus.
A Russian secret society called the Black Hundreds, or the Union of the Russian People, also used the Protocols in their propaganda distribution to convince the masses of a Jewish plot against the Czar, which would develop into a global conquest. This group also instigated the execution of Freemasons and Jews alike, and a few other minority groups just to spice things up. The Czar Nicholas II sanctioned their cause, if not assigning them himself to carry out various clandestine acts. Then in 1905 the first shades of the Russian Revolution broke out. And all this developed, I believe, due to the influence of these sinister Protocols that seemed to manipulate people to behave strangely.
Sergei Nilus also included the Protocols as an appendix in his work, The Anti-Christ is Near At Hand, which was circulated around 1897 at the time the new Zionist Movement was established. His aim was to reveal a potential world-wide conspiracy instigated by Jews and Freemasons, who would form a global government. This is where the initial hoax of The Protocols of the Wise Elders of Zion was ignored or forgotten and begins to be taken too seriously.
So whether or not this strange piece of literature was a forgery isn’t as formidable as the dangerous content itself that could easily inspire power-hungry tyrants to use its sinister precepts that were actual steps to a New World Order. And that’s exactly what happened!
If these diabolical Protocols were so dangerously potent, who was the inspired madman that came to shock the world?
