Adolph Eichmann and You

January 27, 2012

Eichmann By Henry Makow, Ph.D.

(From June 25, 2005)

At his 1961 trial, Adolph Eichmann admitted he "deported" Jews to concentration camps but, in his defense, he said he often requested a transfer.

"Why didn't they transfer you?" The prosecutor demanded.

"I was doing a very good job. I was meticulous," Eichmann conceded.

There is a lesson here. If we don't want to be complicit, let's stop being such good citizens. In our case, "doing a good job" means being apolitical and paying taxes.

We have been conditioned to be spoiled, self-absorbed, trivia-minded and almost anti-social. We are not taught history, nor our rights and duties as citizens, and cannot even consider social action unless bankers, government or media pay organizers to arrange it. We are devoted to our children but apparently indifferent to the world they will inherit.

For the past week, the US has besieged a small city in Iraq, Buhrz, because US soldiers in two humvees were blown up nearby. Food, water and electricity have been cut off until the residents turn over the perpetrators. No one is allowed to enter or leave. June temperatures in Iraq average 110 degrees. The residents don't know who blew up the humvees.

This is a small instance of the daily oppression meted out to Iraqis who resist US occupation, paid for by your tax dollars.

Well, you say. I am against the war but I have no choice but to pay my taxes. I am unaware of American atrocities because they aren't reported.

Henry David Thoreau believed there was no difference between killing and paying someone else to do it. He opposed the US invasion of Mexico in 1846 and refused to pay his taxes.

The famous story goes that on his first night in jail, his friend Ralph Waldo Emerson visited and said: "Henry, what are you doing in there?"

Thoreau's reply: "Ralph, what are you doing out there?"

Somebody (Ralph probably) paid Henry's taxes after only one night and Thoreau went huckleberry picking. But we all face the same dilemma. Are we responsible for state crimes we partly pay for?

The United States is NOT the "great Satan." But London-based central bankers, members of a criminal and satanic cult, (Illuminati-freemasonry) control the US (British and Israeli) governments. Their multi-generational plot is to eliminate all nations and religions and create a dictatorship of the rich using war and mind control ("education" and mass media.) (See my "The Quiet War Against Humanity")

As you know, Prescott Bush, George W. Bush's grandfather financed the Nazi war machine. In 1992, his dad, George H.W. Bush told reporter Sarah McClendon the American public would lynch him if they knew the truth. The truth is that our so-called "leaders" belong to a vast criminal underworld that is not only corrupt and traitorous but also satanic and perverted.

As you know, the collapse of the World Trade Center was a controlled demolition used to justify the War on Terror and domestic repression (a.k.a. Patriot Act.) The occult financial elite murdered almost 3000 ordinary Americans incl. firefighters. (Normally those buildings would not have collapsed. They also demolished nearby World Trade Center Seven on Sept. 11. This 47-floor structure wasn't even hit by a plane. Was it buy two, get one free?) They spent more money investigating Clinton's affair with Monica Lewiniski than they spent investigating 9-ll.

seehear Both political parties maintain the war-on-terror hoax. How better to conquer others than to pretend we are under attack. The US public is the ultimate target of this protection racket surrendering its civil rights in the name of freedom. It is distracted with Paris Hilton while prepped for epidemics and possible nuclear war. It's almost Biblical; it is a morally and financially complicit in its own destruction.

In a recent article, "Are Ordinary Americans Responsible?" Paul Craig Roberts points to claims by a Jewish writer that ordinary Germans are responsible for the Jewish holocaust, although most didn't know about it and voted against Hitler.

"Americans are complicit in the deaths and maiming of thousands of American soldiers for no valid purpose. Americans are complicit in the deaths of tens of thousands of Iraqi women and children as "collateral damage." No one knows how high the number is because the Bush administration does not regard Iraqi lives as worth counting.

Bush's war of deception has devastated Iraq. Cities and towns are in ruins. Infrastructure is destroyed. Half the population is unemployed. Pollution and disease are rampant...

How much more shame and complicity will Americans allow Bush and his neocon brownshirts to shovel onto their shoulders before Americans say "enough!" and remove from office the war criminal who has sullied America's good name?"

(I have posted an article about Roberts, who was an assn't secretary of the treasury under Ronald Reagan, below.)


The irony is that the stubborn resistance of the Iraqi people is delaying the imposition of the New World Order. If Iraq was subdued, they could move on to Iran and Syria, and then to more repressive measures at home.

Another phoney terror attack, financial crash or epidemic could be used as an excuse for the declaration of martial law. In a remarkable essay, a call-to-arms,
"American Gulag: Coming Soon", political veteran Alan Stang recalls that in a Harvard speech in 1978, Alexander Solzhenitsyn bitterly lamented the failure of average Russians to resist Bolshevik terror with guns:

"And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family?"

The analogy between Bolshevik and Bush terror is appropriate since former KGB generals advise the Dept. of Homeland Security. (See my "Communist Takeover Began Long Ago" )

Certainly the failure of the US military to reach its recruitment quotas is an example of popular resistance. We can help by counselling young people and supporting groups helping soldiers who want to leave the service. Canadians can campaign to provide a refuge from a potential draft.

We should boycott the mass media and in particular the "news." Let them know they are liars and boycott their advertisers.

The important thing is to do something. John Conner, a 27-year-old salesman from San Diego has started a web site to encourage people to speak up. He and his friends are faxing the White House to say 9-ll was an inside job. Connor believes that the NWO agenda is to implant a chip in everyone that will prevent them from buying food or supplies unless they obey the government. This is the sign of the beast predicted in Revelations.


We are taught that we live in an era somehow divorced from history and don't have to make large moral decisions as our ancestors did. The truth is we are facing a totalitarian threat similar to Nazi Germany or Bolshevik Russia. The only difference is that they try to maintain the illusion of democracy and freedom in order to deceive the masses. One author (Bertram Gross) dubbed it: "Friendly Fascism."

Our generation will not escape the difficult decisions: whether to oppose tyranny or to be gradually enslaved.

A colleague told me that the words of two people give her courage. Garth Brooks, a country singer said, "I may not change the world but the world won't change me." The second is Mother Theresa who said, quoting the Bible, "We are not required to succeed; we are only required to be Faithful."

...on Responsibility and Resistance
I appreciate your articles, always read them on Rense.
One correction: Mother Theresa who said, quoting the Bible, "We are not
required to succeed; we are only required to be Faithful."
I don't think that's Bible. I first read it in one of Richard Wurmbrand's
book, and as far as I know, it originated with him- maybe not.
It has been a comfort to me, as ineffective as I often feel. I've spent 25
years with with Wycliffe Bible Translators as a tech support person. Came
back from 6 years in Mexico about a year ago. More freedom there than here.
I'm totally frustrated with the current situation in the US, and with most
of my fellow Christians. Wish I knew where I could put my shoulder to the
wheel. Learning from history, we're just about at the die or flee point.
Atlas Shrugged...
Thanks for speaking out.

We the Sheeple said (June 29, 2005):

Thank you for another excellent article regarding the slow orchestrated
death of our society.
If I was able to take the time off from work and hadn't planned on
watching a really good movie on cable and didn't have a cell phone that
was constantly ringing while driving to a sporting event, I'd be glad to
pick up a sword and avenge the death of the thousands of my countrymen
the US government has murdered in just last couple of years. But geez
you can see how busy I am.

Patrick said (June 27, 2005):

The enforced poverty of large numbers of Americans needs to be rooted out so as to no longer provide the criminal elite with cannon fodder. This is one of the reasons for impoverishment, it makes human exploitation easier.

After he was arrested and taken to Israel, Adolph Eichmann revealed to his Israeli captors, that his father was Jewish. His Israeli interrogators then asked him, "How could you the son of a Jew, go to work for the Nazis" Whereupon Eichmann replied, " I needed a job, and they were the only ones hiring."

Burton said (June 27, 2005):

Dear Henry,

First, I do consider myself in tandem complicity with this regime, because since the week of 911, for the first time in 43 years of living in America, I suddenly learned when and where to keep my mouth shut. I even changed my appearance to 'blend'. I became a chameleon.
Though I did not flip flop into buying into the odd trend of plastering flags on my car, I've kept a low profile. I don't believe in the democrat, republican, green, or even libertarian parties as they are presented, though I registered democrat for the last election.

I know that by 'apolitical' you aren't telling people to join one of these parties. The parties seem to really serve as a distraction of people's political power. We are living in a time when the regime have disintegrated all organizations independent of itself.

Not that it hasn't been that way for far longer than most people can believe. Most don't even see it now. As for me, during the 80's, it was still possible to drop out, retreat to a small town, not pay into tax, and so on. It was a refugee life, and now it's come full circle and here we are again.

I'm dismayed as ever that not one American in ten thousand would benefit from reading the very concise, accurate 'state of the union' you've provided in this essay. You've presented the correct version of events and motives between 2000 and 2005, which have brought America to this brilliant result. But I can count on one hand all the people I know personally who can read this information with recognition. All the rest, the vast majority, still believe the official version of reality spoon fed to them by processed news.

In my private life, this week the 'debates' between friends, are over issues such as whether or not Christian bibles should be distributed in Iraq. This is what people I know are talking about. They may as well be talking about how many angels can sit on the head of a pin.

The CARA bill passed quietly last week, the 'Fed land grab' act. This bill empowers the government to seize land and private property as they see fit. No one is talking about it.
Meanwhile, two bills are floating through the house to repeal the 22nd Amendment. That's the one that limits Presidential terms to two. This is a very disturbing time in American history, to repeal this act, during the supposed final term of the man that even Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has called, "the most corrupt and immoral President that we have had in American history."

Acts have been slipping through into law with alarming speed and ease which are rendering the Constitution of the United States irrelevant.

My complicity, my being quiet, cautious, and becoming a chameleon and refugee in my own country is due to America becoming a genuine fascist police state, with all the definable features.

Fascism, dictatorship, and genocide has always existed in America. It's only been more selective than the new fascism is wanting to be. We are all going to be the Indians and slaves now. It's already in place for anyone who's income is under six figures. And even most of them will not have any real power or choice in how they're ruled--they'll just get the nicer version of the official version of reality.

I haven't filed since 2000, I'm self employed, and I try to stay as free of obligation as possible to government or the global corporates. But that make no difference. What we need it the six figure people to lean on the legistlatures, state and Federal, with real awareness and in unison about the right issues.

A 'rabble' assembled to insist on investigation into the Downing Street Minutes memos. It consisted of disenfranchised congressmen and congresswomen, and a smattering of representatives of minor and powerless public organisations. What's wrong with this picture? What's wrong with it, is that the question they're raising is valid, the documents are incontrovertable legal 'probable cause' calling for official, formal investigation and the case for impeachment proceedings would be quite strong at another time in American history. Clinton was put through impeachment proceedings, Nixon resigned over much less serious charges than using the entire US military apparatus, and involving also the military of other nations in an illegal invasion and ongoing occupation of a soveriegn nation. What does the impotence of the legislative branch, the obvious complicity of the majority of it tell us all?

It tells me what I felt intuitively in 2001. American has fallen to an effective Coup D'etat, an inside job. A majority of our own elected legislators, Democrat and Repubican knew it was coming down, who is behind it, and they were in on it. The rest of the Congress and Senate who were not, have been as disingranchised as the rest of us, as expemplified in that pitiful attempt to get a real impeachment investigation going last week. And the majority of the American people are still blissfully unaware of the United States the Republic ceased to exist after 9/11, 2001..
