Owners of the land are harmful to us in that they are independent in their sources of livelihood, therefore at all costs we must deprive them of their land. The best means to attain this is to increase land taxes and mortgage indebtedness. These measures will keep landownership in a state of unconditional subordination. It is necessary for industry to deplete the land of both laborers and capital. We will at the same time cause a rise in the prices of prime necessities, pretending that this is due to the decline of agriculture and cattle raising.
- Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion
If the people let government decide what foods they eat and what medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as the souls of those who live under tyranny.
- Thomas Jefferson
