Power needed. But power corrupts.
Also needed: Creed of Freedom.
G. Edward Griffin's recipe to combat collectivism,
which has been taking power for almost a century.


Watch this video, a friend wrote to me. It's long, but it's well worth it.

So I watched G. Edward Griffin talk for more than an hour, agreed with my friend, and now I'll recommend the video to you.

What makes the video worth watching? The answer Griffin gives to the core question: how do we stop and reverse the take-over of the West by collectivists. Collectivists: anyone who puts group rights before individual rights, and favors state control, big government, over individual rights and freedoms. Communists, Leftists, Islamics, and the politically correct come to mind.

The answer to the core question (how do we reverse the collectivist takeover) is simple. We need to take power back one bit at a time, just as they have taken power one bit at a time - one labor union, one town council, one school board, one political representative, one political party, one head of state.

Forget about petitions, letter-writing campaigns, protest marches. Those in power don't care about any of these, no matter how many millions have signed a petition.

So how do we get them to lose power?

Griffin turns to Sun Tzu's The Art of War. People who know themself and the enemy are always victors. People who know either themself or the enemy, lose as often as they win. And people who know neither themself nor the enemy, always lose.

As we have lost just about 100% of the time, it's clear we lack both self-knowledge and knowledge of the enemy. Griffin's assessment rings true. For instance, for most of my life, I didn't know there was an enemy, or that any take-over was happening. So much learning in the past 15 years!

On the other hand, the enemy clearly has self-knowledge and knowledge of us. If you have any doubts, read Diana West's brilliant American Betrayal: The Secret Assault on Our Nation's Character and Stephen Coughlin's equally brilliant Catastrophic Failure: Blindfolding America in the Face of Jihad.

For many years, despite knowing the enemy, Griffin had no idea how to counter the take-over by collectivists, because he was against power, could only see power negatively.

The breakthrough was his recognition of power as neutral, and his recognition that the only way to oust the collectivists from power was by taking power.

So, his solution:

Know yourself. Know the enemy.

Get hold of power. Reclaim power.

As power corrupts, ensure the structures are strong to protect against this tendency.

Also vital is a freedom ideology - clear, easy to understand. He sees a weakness of the American constitution: while the structure of government is good, it does not explain the reason for the structure - which is largely to limit government, to bind people to a good structure, to block people from using government to do evil.

So he has created a Creed of Freedom.

Griffin makes still another crucial point. We don't need to get a huge percentage of people aware to take back power. The percent he gives - 3%.

Here is what he says:

2002. That was the year the idea found its way into my mind that the leaders of collectivism had conceived a brilliant strategy whereby less than three percent of the population could effectively influence the other ninety-seven percent to do exactly what the three percent wanted. The more I thought about that, the more I began to wonder if that same strategy could be used by those of us who are champions of individualism, which is the opposite of collectivism. The big question was whether the strategy depended on unethical principles, which would put the plan off limits for us.

After studying this strategy at length, I was surprised to find that it was not unethical at all. The objectives of the strategy – such as depriving humans of free will, freedom of choice, privacy, dignity, independence, and all other benefits of a free society – are, to individualists, totally unethical. However, the strategy, itself, by which collectivists gain influence over the population is not unethical. In fact, it is merely based on observations of human nature and, in particular, the observation that people tend to follow leaders.
The tactics that arise from this knowledge have been used in free societies for centuries. The primary difference is that, now, they are professionalized by well-funded organizations who use this knowledge to deceive people into accepting policies that diminish their wealth, health, privacy, and freedom.

If we look strictly at the strategy and not at the objectives of the strategy, we see that the element of deception is the only part that is off limits to us. In fact, rejecting deception is no serious handicap for us, because our end game is freedom, not slavery. Therefore, we have nothing to gain by pretending it is something else.

Who is Griffin, by the way? By 2018, he had spent 58 of his 87 years exploring the takeover of the West by collectivists and coming to his understanding of how to take back power.

July 27, 2019

PS. Griffin has thought and written on lots more, notably the US Federal Reserve in a best-selling book, The Creature from Jekyll Island. Two major points: "It is the ability of governments to acquire money without direct taxation that makes modern warfare possible, and a central bank has become the preferred method of accomplishing that." Even more important: the central banks are an instrument for totalitarianism. I don't (at present, anyway) know enough about the Federal Reserve and central banks in general to be able to evaluate Griffin's understanding.

Sonya Jay Porter

Elsa is an incredible person, writing the truth for us all on so many subjects - political correctness, the climate, the UN, the EU (or rather, the European Dictatorship) and also on the subject which is one of the most important at the moment - the spread of Islamisation throughout the world.
         May I recommend that you watch the excellent cartoon she has created for young school children on the teachings of Islam.
         And here she goes again, with yet something more! Whatever it is about, whatever she creates, I know it will be worth watching and reading - there is so little genuine Truth out there in the public media, but Elsa is a True Truth Sleuth!

Sonya Jay Porter, who for 25 years has been working with UKIP, the UK Independence Party, to get her country out of the European Union


Gordon Miller

Elsa is a missionary for truth. I have had the pleasure of knowing Elsa for many years now and have admired her steadfast campaign to expose the truth on a range of topics, but for the most part Islam. She has interviewed literally dozens of experts who have studied and had firsthand experience with Islam. All of these, and much more, can be heard on her website. Elsa believes, and I agree, that only when there is open discussion and public debate about the tenets of Islam (i.e. free speech) will the world be free from the Islamic Jihad. In other words, “The truth shall set you free.” Elsa is the ”Truth Sleuth.”

Gordon Miller, long time environmental conservationist, believer in climate science history, challenger of climate models, dissenter on Canada's 1982 Constitution, believer in the dignity of the individual (i.e. the essence of Judeo-Christian values) and advocate of minimal government at the federal level.


Nicole D

Elsa is a spiritual healer and a brilliant writer. She is also for me a pillar of strength and a voice of reason.
          And her music videos are a reminder that there is a beauty in this world too! My favorite clip is There is No More Islam.

Nicole Davidoff, passionate advocate of human rights and freedoms, passionately against any ideology that is totalitarian, like Islam and Communism, cat lover.


Ramachandra Abhyankar

I came to know about Dr. Elsa Schieder ("Elsa") through her interviews with Islam experts Robert Spencer, Bill Warner, Citizen Warrior,  and others. Many people were introduced  to Elsa through her highly informative video for children, about Islam. Through her work, Elsa has helped clear the confusion surrounding Islam, making it possible for people to learn the truth about Islam.
         Islam is just one area; Elsa has sought the truth in many areas, and has a unique talent to clarify issues and motivate people.
          I am especially indebted to Elsa for making me aware of the Islamic Doctrine of  Al-Wala Wal-Bara, which I now know to be the key for understanding Islam. Even after studying several books on Islam, I was not aware of the Islamic doctrine of Al-Wala Wal-Bara. This key doctrine is at the heart of Islam, and makes the other Islamic doctrines of Islam, like Jihad and Sharia, easily comprehensible.
          Elsa has also taught me to not give up even when confronted by obstacles, such as the now ubiquitous censorship by the media.
          Elsa is an inspiration and  an example for all seekers of truth!

Ramachandra B. Abhyankar lives in Terre Haute, Indiana, USA. He is Associate Professor in the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at Indiana State University, in Terre Haute, Indiana USA.


Mary Andrew

When I came upon Elsa's work (like her great kid's video), I had educated myself on what Islam is, had been galvanised to protest by the horrific slaughter of children in the Manchester bombing, and was also trying to get the truth out on a lot of Facebook sites. But I felt isolated, downcast and daunted by the mountainous size of the problem. I have always been utterly anti-racist, but my friends thought I had become a bigot. I didn't know what to do. 
         Elsa's amazing, inspirational work has become a beacon of light to me, and her friendship has furnished me with the encouragement and support (and occasional rap over the knuckles!) which I desperately needed to become tougher, more confident, and much more active. Moreover, she has introduced me to new friends in the movement (against Sharia, and in support of British sovereignty - connected issues), from whom I am constantly learning, and with whom I can work, and protest, much more effectively. I no longer feel alone; united we stand!  Thank you, Elsa, so much for all you have done to embolden me, and nurture my development. I am truly grateful! 

Mary Andrew recently co-founded a local branch of the new and fast-growing For Britain political party, to work for a voice in mainstream politics. She's just been invited to write for the For Britain website. She still regularly attending protests, now along with great new friends.


Jeff Himmelberger

I admire Elsa’s life-long commitment to activism through ever vigilant truth sleuthing, and I'm thrilled that her next series of interviews will tell untold stories of activists who've been ignored by mainstream media. I'm hopeful that Elsa’s provocative interviews will stretch personal comfort zones, reach wide audiences, and break through brick walls.
          Elsa’s idea of interviewing people who do sustained truth-telling is perfectly aligned with who she is, and these interviews will be AWESOME!

Jeff Himmelberger is a left-leaning liberal from Massachusetts who fortuitously enjoys a deep and enduring friendship with Elsa. For the past fifteen years Elsa has been challenging Jeff’s assumptions and expanding his hard-wired thinking habits.


Elaine Black

I really want to thank you, Elsa, for your deep dedication and endless hard work in trying to right the wrongs. I don’t follow all of your activities, but am very aware of the bigger picture in what you do and know that your heart works to make the world a better place. You deserve every accolade that may never come your way - just know that so many of us think this.

Elaine Black has always believed in ‘principles’: Truth is based on principle and on facts. The great English painter Francis Bacon whose work is often considered controversial for it’s painful distorted imagery, once said "people tend to be offended by facts, or what used to be called truth." These are the tenets of my belief, and to that end, I have run a ’newswire’ service for over a decade to allow others to formulate their knowledge based on exposure to truth and facts rather than lies and distortions.
