Tell us a little about yourself.

I am a 52 year-old Canadian. I was born in Switzerland, of Polish Jewish holocaust survivors who immigrated to Canada when I was a baby. I wrote a weekly "Advice to Parents" column "Ask Henry" when I was 11 years old. It was syndicated in 35 newspapers and lasted three years. I invented the board game Scruples in 1984, which sold seven million games. I have a Ph.D. in English Literature and taught part-time.

When I was young, I had an intuitive sense of the profundity of the human experience and expected to be initiated by my elders. Of course, this never happened and I spent my first 48 years partaking in our cultural delusion and dysfunction.

When did you start to find answers?

I was partly stalled because feminism confused me about my masculine identity. Women have been forced to take the male role and men like me are looking for women to give us our identities. When I started to obey my masculine instincts, my personal life fell into place for the first time. Heterosexual marriage is based on the exchange of power for love. Men want power; women want love. (Women surrender power to men in exchange for love.) I cover this stage of my life in my book, "A Long Way to go for a Date."

I discovered the elite conspiracy just six months ago when I asked the question: Why would the establishment promote a philosophy (feminism) that renounces femininity and alienates women from men? That's when I discovered that the world is run by a relatively small network of very rich people that views the rest of us as a threat and encumbrance. For example, they created feminism to decrease population and destabilize society by undermining the nuclear family. Since 1960, the birth rate in Western societies has halved, while single-parent households have tripled.

Who is this network of "very rich people"?

Before I continue, I want to emphasize that I am on a steep learning curve, and don't pretend to have all the answers. Moreover, I am dependent on the work of hundreds of researchers and writers who have been alert to what has happened for decades. Thanks to them, I have an outline of what is going on but I need to fill in many blanks.

Essentially, we the people have given the power to create money to a banking cartel that annually collects billions of dollars in interest on assets it created out of thin air. It uses this money creating monopoly to suck up most of the real wealth (property,resources) of the planet.

This cartel realized that this state of affairs was unsustainable so it took over the governments of most countries. Our politicians are puppets. When they get out of line, as John Kennedy did, they are shot. The cartel plans to secure its domination on a global scale through the New World Order, the UN, IMF and all the institutions of "world governance."

Can you put some faces on this picture?

It appears that the Rothschilds are at the heart of it. Their dominance of world finance and enterprise was well known in the Nineteenth Century. It has not disappeared. Rather, it appears that J.P. Morgan was their agent and that they bankrolled Rockefeller, Carnegie, and the other robber barons, taking a share of their businesses. This small clique controls a growing proportion of the world's wealth. Apparently it also controls the world trade in illegal drugs through its organized crime branches, the Mafia, and the CIA. Lyndon Johnson told his mistress that the CIA and the Mafia were "two sides of the same coin."

The cabal also includes members of the European aristocracies, joined in spirit by occult secret societies like the Masons. It is coordinated by "think tanks" like British Royal Institute of International Affairs and its US branch, the Council on Foreign Relations. Just look at a membership list of the CFR, the Bilderbergs or the Trilateral Commission to see who belongs to this cabal. You'll find the names of our political, corporate and media leaders.

Can you put the events of Sept. 11 in this context?

The attack on the WTC was an exercise in mass manipulation, typical of the modus operandi of the elite cabal. In the past, they have used similar outrage incidents like the sinking of the Lusitania and the attack on Pearl Harbor to change public sentiment in favor of war. In the "Report from Iron Mountain" (1961) they openly admit the need for an external "enemy" in order to distract the people from what is really happening. Now, the "enemy" is the Muslim terrorist.

This attack was perpetrated by the intelligence agencies, which owe their loyalty to the banking-oil cartel, not the nation. The purpose was to provide an excuse to usurp the oil of Central Asia, Iraq and possibly Iran, and to finance a big security buildup that ostensibly will counter Muslim resistance but ultimately will be used against the American people. The elite subscribes to the belief that the public is moved by images rather than reason. Thus, it created the powerful image of the WTC crumbling and people running from a cloud of smoke and debris. They played it over and over in order to traumatize and render us psychologically vulnerable.

How does the Israeli Palestinian conflict fit in?

The 1917 Balfour Declaration took the form of a letter to Lord Rothschild. The Rothschilds have a huge interest in Shell Oil. I am a Zionist but I don't believe Israel would have been created if it were not to distract the Arabs from the foreigners who control their oil. The Israeli-Palestinian conflict is subsidized by the bankers in order to demonize the Arabs in the mind of the Western public, and justify war. The elite will use Israel as a partial excuse for putting their ownpeople in power in Iraq, and possibly Iran, Syria and Saudi Arabia. Israel may materially help in this war effort.

Why is the public ignorant of all this?

Beginning with the education system, and continuing with the mass media, we are systematically thwarted, undermined and brainwashed. Two thirds of all endowments to higher education come from elite foundations. They control what is taught, what articles and books are published and what appears on TV and in the movies. Generally, their goal is to distract us from the human situation by keeping us diverted by sex, sports and trivia.

The twentieth century, both politics and art, was a hoax. Modernity is a hoax, perpetrated by this cabal. It is based on the conceit that there is no Creator, and no moral order. This is belied by what most people know intuitively. People have an instinctive knowledge of good and evil, and an instinctive hunger for love and harmony.

Doestoevski said that when you abolish God, everything is allowable. First and foremost, you can slaughter people if you deny their divinity. Then you can tell people that good and evil are not absolutes. You can tell them that truth is unknowable, and therefore a function of power. This is taught at university today. We're on a steep and slippery slope to fascism.

How can we resist?

Some practical suggestions can be found in the final chapter of "The Creature from Jekyll Island" by G. Edward Griffin, a book everyone should read.

Generally speaking, we can resist by representing publicly and privately--all the things the elite is trying to destroy: God, country, nuclear family, and children.

Finally, don't you find this pretty depressing?

Just the opposite. It was depressing to think mankind was naturally messed up. I find it liberating to know that we are being deliberately sabotaged.
