The cause of liberty becomes a mockery if the price to be paid is the wholesale destruction of those who are to enjoy liberty–Gandhi
Make yourselves sheep and the wolves will eat you.–Benjamin Franklin
Progressive theorist Mary Parker Follett’s 1918 book The New State. “Man can have no rights apart from society or independent of society or against society,” Follett wrote. The individual rights granted by “Nature and Nature’s God,” as Thomas Jefferson wrote, should be augmented by “social rights,” which are potentially unlimited. “Our efforts are to be bent not upon guarding the rights which Heaven has showered upon us, but in creating all the rights we shall ever have.” The agent of this expansion of rights must be the state: “The state has a higher function than either restraining individuals or protecting individuals. It is to have a great forward policy which shall follow the collective will of the people, a collective will which embodied through our state, in our life, shall be the basis of progress yet undreamed of.”
Herbert Croly was a co-founder of The New Republic magazine, and his 1909 book The Promise of American Life was endorsed by Supreme Court Justice Felix Frankfurter as “the most powerful single contribution to progressive thinking.” In that book Croly asserted, “The people are not Sovereign as individuals. They are not Sovereign in reason and morals even when united into a majority. They become Sovereign only in so far as they succeed in reaching and expressing a collective purpose.”

The underground project to unseat humanity and create a world run by technology has been officially underwritten by the elite.What do we know about Bilderberg’s techno-control master plan since the wrap up of its June 11-14 conference?As usual, not much from the inside; but we know quite a bit by tracing the work of its attendees and insider members, as well as the progression of the conference itself over the past decades, as invitees have increasingly tended towards the high-tech.Robotics and technology are huge steps ahead.Artificial intelligence is one giant leap further.Meanwhile, Bilderberg’s steering committee has invited more and more entrepreneurs from Silicon Valley as well as tech heads leading changes on the Internet, in cybersecurity and the vast changes happening in technology.As such, Google’s chairman Eric Schmidt has become a visible center of the 21st Century Bilderberg meetings, giving further gravity to chic geeks brushing shoulders with the power brokers of the post-WWII era, who have long dominated banking, industry, military and political interests.
