The intensification of armaments, the increase of
police forces - are all essential for the completion of the
aforementioned plans. What we have to get at is that there should
be in all the States of the world, besides ourselves, only the
masses of the proletariat, a few millionaires devoted to our
interests, police and soldiers.
Throughout all Europe, and by means of relations with Europe,
in other continents also, we must create ferments, discords and
hostility. Therein we gain a double advantage. In the first place
we keep in check all countries, for they will know that we have the
power whenever we like to create disorders or to restore order. All
these countries are accustomed to see in us an indispensable force
of coercion. In the second place, by our intrigues we shall tangle
up all the threads which we have stretched into the cabinets of all
States by means of the political, by economic treaties, or loan

The principal factor of success in the political is the secrecy
of its undertakings: the word should not agree with the deeds of the

public opinion, secretly promoted by us through the means of that
so-called "Great Power" - The Press, which, with a few exceptions that may be disregarded, is already entirely in our hands.
In a word, to sum up our system of keeping the governments of the
goyim in Europe in check, we shall show our strength to one of them by
terrorist attempts and to all, if we allow the possibility of a general
rising against us, we shall respond with the guns of America or China
or Japan. (The Russo-Japanese War of 1904-1905; Japan; Iraq and Afghanistan -
