The State Council has been, as it were, the emphatic expression of the authority
of the ruler: it will be, as the "show" part of the Legislative Corps,
what may be called the editorial committee of the laws and decrees of the ruler.
This, then, is the program of the new constitution. We shall make Law, Right and
Justice (1) in the guise of proposals to the Legislative Corps, (2) by decrees
of the president under the guise of general regulations, of orders of the Senate
and of resolutions of the State Council in the guise of ministerial orders, (3)
and in case a suitable occasion should arise - in the form of a revolution in
Having established approximately the MODUS AGENDI we will occupy ourselves with
details of those combinations by which we have still to complete the revolution
in the course of the machinery of State in the direction already indicated. By
these combinations I mean the freedom of the Press, the right of association,
freedom of conscience, the voting principle, and many another that must
disappear for ever from the memory of man, or undergo a radical alteration the
day after the promulgation of the new constitution. It is only at the moment
that we shall be able at once to announce all our orders, for, afterwards, every
noticeable alteration will be dangerous, for the following reasons: if this
alteration be brought in with harsh severity and in a sense of severity and
limitations, it may lead to a feeling of despair caused by fear of new
alterations in the same direction; if, on the other hand, it be brought in a
sense of further indulgences it will be said that we have recognized our own
wrong-doing and this will destroy the prestige of the infallibility of our
authority, or else it will be said that we have become alarmed and are compelled
to show a yielding disposition, for which we shall get no thanks because it will
be supposed to be compulsory ... Both the one and the other are injurious to the
prestige of the new constitution. What we want is that from the first moment of
its promulgation, while the peoples of the world are still stunned by the
accomplished fact of the revolution, still in a condition of terror and
uncertainty, they should recognize once for all that we are so strong, so
inexpugnable, so super-abundantly filled with power, that in no case shall we
take any account of them, and so far from paying any attention to their opinions
or wishes, we are ready and able to crush with irresistible power all expression
or manifestation thereof at every moment and in every place, that we have seized
at once everything we wanted and shall in no case divide our power with them ...
Then in fear and trembling they will close their eyes to everything, and be
content to await what will be the end of it all.
The GOYIM are a flock of sheep, and we are their wolves. And you know what
happens when the wolves get hold of the flock? ....
There is another reason also why they will close their eyes: for we shall keep
promising them to give back all the liberties we have taken away as soon as we
have quelled the enemies of peace and tamed all parties ....
It is not worth to say anything about how long a time they will be kept waiting
for this return of their liberties ....
For what purpose then have we invented this whole policy and insinuated it into
the minds of the GOY without giving them any chance to examine its underlying
meaning? For what, indeed, if not in order to obtain in a roundabout way what is
for our scattered tribe unattainable by the direct road? It is this which has
served as the basis for our organization of SECRET MASONRY WHICH IS NOT KNOWN
TO, AND AIMS WHICH ARE NOT EVEN SO MUCH AS SUSPECTED BY, THESE "GOY"
CATTLE, ATTRACTED BY US INTO THE "SHOW" ARMY OF MASONIC LODGES IN
ORDER TO THROW DUST IN THE EYES OF THEIR FELLOWS.
God has granted to us, His Chosen People, the gift of the dispersion, and in
this which appears in all eyes to be our weakness, has come forth all our
strength, which has now brought us to the threshold of sovereignty over all the
There now remains not much more for us to build up upon the foundation we have
Top of Protocols
The word "freedom," which can be interpreted in various ways, is
defined by us as follows -
Freedom is the right to do what which the law allows. This interpretation of the
word will at the proper time be of service to us, because all freedom will thus
be in our hands, since the laws will abolish or create only that which is
desirable for us according to the aforesaid program.
We shall deal with the press in the following way: what is the part played by
the press to-day? It serves to excite and inflame those passions which are
needed for our purpose or else it serves selfish ends of parties. It is often
vapid, unjust, mendacious, and the majority of the public have not the slightest
idea what ends the press really serves. We shall saddle and bridle it with a
tight curb: we shall do the same also with all productions of the printing
press, for where would be the sense of getting rid of the attacks of the press
if we remain targets for pamphlets and books? The produce of publicity, which
nowadays is a source of heavy expense owing to the necessity of censoring it,
will be turned by us into a very lucrative source of income to our State: we
shall law on it a special stamp tax and require deposits of caution-money before
permitting the establishment of any organ of the press or of printing offices;
these will then have to guarantee our government against any kind of attack on
the part of the press. For any attempt to attack us, if such still be possible,
we shall inflict fines without mercy. Such measures as stamp tax, deposit of
caution-money and fines secured by these deposits, will bring in a huge income
to the government. It is true that party organs might not spare money for the
sake of publicity, but these we shall shut up at the second attack upon us. No
one shall with impunity lay a finger on the aureole of our government
infallibility. The pretext for stopping any publication will be the alleged plea
that it is agitating the public mind without occasion or justification. I BEG
YOU TO NOTE THAT AMONG THOSE MAKING ATTACKS UPON US WILL ALSO BE ORGANS
ESTABLISHED BY US, BUT THEY WILL ATTACK EXCLUSIVELY POINTS THAT WE HAVE
PRE-DETERMINED TO ALTER.
CONTROL THE PRESS
NOT A SINGLE ANNOUNCEMENT WILL REACH THE PUBLIC WITHOUT OUR CONTROL. Even now
this is already being attained by us inasmuch as all news items are received by
a few agencies, in whose offices they are focused from all parts of the world.
These agencies will then be already entirely ours and will give publicity only
to what we dictate to them.
If already now we have contrived to possess ourselves of the minds of the GOY
communities to such an extent the they all come near looking upon the events of
the world through the colored glasses of those spectacles we are setting astride
their noses; if already now there is not a single State where there exist for us
any barriers to admittance into what GOY stupidity calls State secrets: what
will our positions be then, when we shall be acknowledged supreme lords of the
world in the person of our king of all the world ....
Let us turn again to the FUTURE OF THE PRINTING PRESS. Every one desirous of
being a publisher, librarian, or printer, will be obliged to provide himself
with the diploma instituted therefore, which, in case of any fault, will be
immediately impounded. With such measures THE INSTRUMENT OF THOUGHT WILL BECOME
AN EDUCATIVE MEANS ON THE HANDS OF OUR GOVERNMENT, WHICH WILL NO LONGER ALLOW
THE MASS OF THE NATION TO BE LED ASTRAY IN BY-WAYS AND FANTASIES ABOUT THE
BLESSINGS OF PROGRESS. Is there any one of us who does not know that these
phantom blessings are the direct roads to foolish imaginings which give birth to
anarchical relations of men among themselves and towards authority, because
progress, or rather the idea of progress, has introduced the conception of every
kind of emancipation, but has failed to establish its limits .... All the
so-called liberals are anarchists, if not in fact, at any rate in thought. Every
one of them in hunting after phantoms of freedom, and falling exclusively into
license, that is, into the anarchy of protest for the sake of protest ....
We turn to the periodical press. We shall impose on it, as on all printed
matter, stamp taxes per sheet and deposits of caution- money, and books of less
than 30 sheets will pay double. We shall reckon them as pamphlets in order, on
the one hand, to reduce the number of magazines, which are the worst form of
printed poison, and, on the other, in order that this measure may force writers
into such lengthy productions that they will be little read, especially as they
will be costly. At the same time what we shall publish ourselves to influence
mental development in the direction laid down for our profit will be cheap and
will be read voraciously. The tax will bring vapid literary ambitions within
bounds and the liability to penalties will make literary men dependent upon us.
And if there should be any found who are desirous of writing against us, they
will not find any person eager to print their productions in print the publisher
or printer will have to apply to the authorities for permission to do so. Thus
we shall know beforehand of all tricks preparing against us and shall nullify
them by getting ahead with explanations on the subject treated of.
Literature and journalism are two of the most important educative forces, and
therefore our government will become proprietor of the majority of the journals.
This will neutralize the injurious influence of the privately-owned press and
will put us in possession of a tremendous influence upon the public mind .... If
we give permits for ten journals, we shall ourselves found thirty, and so on in
the same proportion. This, however, must in no wise be suspected by the public.
For which reason all journals published by us will be of the most opposite, in
appearance, tendencies and opinions, thereby creating confidence in us and
bringing over to us quite unsuspicious opponents, who will thus fall into our
trap and be rendered harmless.
In the front rank will stand organs of an official character. They will always
stand guard over our interests, and therefore their influence will be
In the second rank will be the semi-official organs, whose part it will be to
attack the tepid and indifferent.
In the third rank we shall set up our own, to all appearance, off position,
which, in at least one of its organs, will present what looks like the very
antipodes to us. Our real opponents at heart will accept this simulated
opposition as their own and will show us their cards.
All our newspapers will be of all possible complexions - aristocratic,
republican, revolutionary, even anarchical - for so long, of course, as the
constitution exists .... Like the Indian idol "Vishnu" they will have
a hundred hands, and every one of them will have a finger on any one of the
public opinions as required. When a pulse quickens these hands will lead opinion
in the direction of our aims, for an excited patient loses all power of judgment
and easily yields to suggestion. Those fools who will think they are repeating
the opinion of a newspaper of their own camp will be repeating our opinion or
any opinion that seems desirable for us. In the vain belief that they are
following the organ of their party they will, in fact, follow the flag which we
hang out for them.
In order to direct our newspaper militia in this sense we must take special and
minute care in organizing this matter. Under the title of central department of
the press we shall institute literary gatherings at which our agents will
without attracting attention issue the orders and watchwords of the day. By
discussing and controverting, but always superficially, without touching the
essence of the matter, our organs will carry on a sham fight fusillade with the
official newspapers solely for the purpose of giving occasion for us to express
ourselves more fully than could well be done from the outset in official
announcements, whenever, of course, that is to our advantage.
THESE ATTACKS UPON US WILL ALSO SERVE ANOTHER PURPOSE, NAMELY, THAT OUR SUBJECTS
WILL BE CONVINCED TO THE EXISTENCE OF FULL FREEDOM OF SPEECH AND SO GIVE OUR
AGENTS AN OCCASION TO AFFIRM THAT ALL ORGANS WHICH OPPOSE US ARE EMPTY BABBLERS,
since they are incapable of finding any substantial objections to our orders.
Methods of organization like these, imperceptible to the public eye but
absolutely sure, are the best calculated to succeed in bringing the attention
and the confidence of the public to the side of our government. Thanks to such
methods we shall be in a position as from time to time may be required, to
excite or to tranquilize the public mind on political questions, to persuade or
to confuse, printing now truth, now lies, facts or their contradictions,
according as they may be well or ill received, always very cautiously feeling
our ground before stepping upon it .... WE SHALL HAVE A SURE TRIUMPH OVER OUR
OPPONENTS SINCE THEY WILL NOT HAVE AT THEIR DISPOSITION ORGANS OF THE PRESS IN
WHICH THEY CAN GIVE FULL AND FINAL EXPRESSION TO THEIR VIEWS owing to the
aforesaid methods of dealing with the press. We shall not even need to refute
them except very superficially.
Trial shots like these, fired by us in the third rank of our press, in case of
need, will be energetically refuted by us in our semi-official organs.
Even nowadays, already, to take only the French press, there are forms which
reveal masonic solidarity in acting on the watchword: all organs of the press
are bound together by professional secrecy; like the augurs of old, not one of
their numbers will give away the secret of his sources of information unless it
be resolved to make announcement of them. Not one journalist will venture to
betray this secret, for not one of them is ever admitted to practice literature
unless his whole past has some disgraceful sore or other .... These sores would
be immediately revealed. So long as they remain the secret of a few the prestige
of the journalist attacks the majority of the country - the mob follow after him
Our calculations are especially extended to the provinces. It is indispensable
for us to inflame there those hopes and impulses with which we could at any
moment fall upon the capital, and we shall represent to the capitals that these
expressions are the independent hopes and impulses of the provinces. Naturally,
the source of them will be always one and the same - ours. WHAT WE NEED IS THAT,
UNTIL SUCH TIME AS WE ARE IN THE PLENITUDE POWER, THE CAPITALS SHOULD FIND
THEMSELVES STIFLED BY THE PROVINCIAL OPINION OF THE NATIONS, I.E., OF A MAJORITY
ARRANGED BY OUR AGENTUR. What we need is that at the psychological moment the
capitals should not be in a position to discuss an accomplished fact for the
simple reason, if for no other, that it has been accepted by the public opinion
of a majority in the provinces. 19. WHEN WE ARE IN THE PERIOD OF THE NEW REGIME
TRANSITIONAL TO THAT OF OUR ASSUMPTION OF FULL SOVEREIGNTY WE MUST NOT ADMIT ANY
REVELATION BY THE PRESS OF ANY FORM OF PUBLIC DISHONESTY; IT IS NECESSARY THAT
THE NEW REGIME SHOULD BE THOUGHT TO HAVE SO PERFECTLY CONTENDED EVERYBODY THAT
EVEN CRIMINALITY HAS DISAPPEARED ... Cases of the manifestation of criminality
should remain known only to their victims and to chance witnesses - no more.
