Cecil Rhodes was not the only obnoxious imperialist generated by Victorian England, but he is definitely a candidate for poster boy. Besides all the nastiness he accomplished during his lifetime, he left his fortune to further his worldview through such present-day organizations as the Council on Foreign Relations and other such global-elitist groups still accomplishing nastiness around the world.
“I would annex the planets if I could; I often think of that. It makes me sad to see them so clear and yet so far.”-Cecil Rhodes
Gee, Cecil, ever heard of the word “hubris?” If Cecil ever did hear of hubris, he would not admit it applied to him self; no, he was a hero, cleansing the world of “savagery” keeping the “niggers” in their proper place and spreading Anglo Saxon wonderfulness for the good of all mankind.
“I contend that we are the first race in all the world, and that the more of the world we inhabit the better it is for the human race.”-Cecil Rhodes
Rhodes owned the De Beers diamond mines in South Africa (with financing from Rothschild) and went after the gold in the Transvaal, setting off the Boer War during which 28,000 Boer women and children died in British concentration camps. But it was all for the good of humanity.
This Benthamite morality is still alive and well and kicking down doors all over the globe to allow the cleansing light of Anglo Saxon wonderfulness in. Just as one planet was not enough for Rhodes, one lifetime was not enough, either. So he set up the Rhodes scholarship to advance his ideas and left a well-financed blueprint for what we now call the New World Order.
From his will:
To and for the establishment of a secret order, the true aim if which shall be the extension of British rule throughout the world…colonization and occupation of (here he lists practically the whole world) the ultimate recovery of the United States…
THE FOUNDATION OF SO GREAT A POWER AS TO RENDER WARS IMPOSSIBLE, AND PROMOTE THE BEST INTERESTS OF HUMANITY.
Sound like the EU? The World Trade Organization? IMF?
Who needs the Illuminati when we have Cecil Rhodes and his secret organizational offspring? Rhodes said his policy would result in an Africa “secure for civilization forever-free from ignorance pestilence and war.” How has that worked out for you, Cecil?
Funny how people who talk about the good of humanity have no real feelings for actual humans.
