Nathan Rothschild's "coup" in the immediate aftermath of the Battle of Waterloo relied on his intelligence network and existing wealth to buy up huge swathes of British assets on the cheap. That, together with control of the Bank of England and the daily "fix" of the gold price, granted Rothschilds extraordinary power over the dominant empire of the 19th century, Britain. Nathan Rothschild's deception involved secret agents buying stocks and shares on his behalf while he appeared to be a "seller" rather than a "buyer". Rothschilds' use of agents and nominees continues up to the present day and was the means by which, in 1913, the family instigated and control the US Federal Reserve Board comprising 12 privately owned, regional federal reserve banks. Consequently, as global power shifted from Britain to America, Rothschilds' power continued unchecked and extended globally with the formation of the Bank of International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, also under its control.
The nature and extent of Rothschilds' power and wealth is well hidden behind a facade of genteel respectability and a complex web of companies, foundations and trusts. Rothschilds' power and wealth eclipses that of any other on the planet. They own huge swathes of land and natural resources and, of course, the alchemy of interest and money creation has facilitated their control of governments globally.
“Let me issue and control a nation’s money and I care not who writes the laws.” Meyer Amschel Rothschild - 1790
Nathan Rothschild's grandson, "Natty" Rothschild was instrumental, along with Cecil Rhodes, William Stead, Lord Esher and Alfred Milner, in the creation of a secret elite which has evolved into what Critical Thinking describes as the Structural Elite. Knowledge of the early evolution and purpose of this group was revealed by Carroll Quigley although much of his work remains, to this day, obscured from public view. "Natty" was also instrumental in the precipitation of the first world war (See Hidden History by Gerry Docherty and James MacGregor).
The Rothschild family's control of media ensures that their power and wealth remain hidden while any attempts to criticise or expose their wealth and nefarious activities are met with cries of "anti-Semitism" (no matter that the family aren't Semites but Ashkenazi Jews originating from Eastern Europe). The Economist, Associated Press and Reuters all fall within their sphere of influence while their Pearson Group has built a monopoly in educational publishing.
Behind every major geopolitical trend, the Rothschilds' influence is manifest but often obscured: climate change, wars and mass migration into Europe. Leading family members operate with a conviction that they are fulfilling their destiny but are trapped within the existing paradigm as much as the rest of us. Removing the Rothschild family from power, within the existing political economy, would have little effect; someone else would take their place.
However, permanently removing their power is relatively straightforward and requires no retribution, nor bloodshed. We need to dismantle hierarchy, prohibit interest and share the surplus wealth of the commons. These three measures would remove their power to inflict oppression, death and destruction, at a stroke.
