Democracy

“It is so much waste of time to talk of this or that ‘democracy.’  The real government was, and is, to be found behind the scenes.  The system works as follows.  Two or more parties appear before the public.  As a matter of form, and to reassure the simpletons, some honest men are allowed to do a little clean work as long as they don’t touch the big rackets.  The biggest rackets are those of finance and monopolization, including the monopolization of money itself, both within the nation and in combination with the various foreign currencies.”

-AMERICA AND THE SECOND WORLD WAR, 1944
