Cecil Rhodes and the Rhodes Scholarships

"The idea gleaming and dancing before ones eyes like a will-of-the-wisp at last frames itself into a plan. Why should we not form a secret society with but one object, the furtherance of the British Empire and the bringing of the whole uncivilised world under British rule, for the recovery of the United States, for the making the Anglo-Saxon race one Empire. What a dream, but yet it is probable, it is possible." -- Cecil Rhodes, June 2, 1877

"The Society should inspire and even own portions of the press, for the press rules the mind of the people." -- Cecil Rhodes, 1877

"For fear that death might cut me off before the time for attempting its development, I leave all my worldly goods in trust ... to try to form such a Society with such an object." -- Cecil Rhodes, June 2, 1877

"In Washington, more Rhodes Scholars have been attracted to the State Department than to any other branch of the government, but there is good representation in the departments of War, Navy, Justice...". From "The American Rhodes Scholarship; A review of the first forty years", by Frank Aydelotte, (1946) Page 99.

"The Rhodes Trustees will not be satisfied until a Rhodes Scholar is President of the United States" -- from Forty Years of Rhodes Scholarships, by Carleton Kemp Allen (1944), page 18.

"Next week an Oxford man will become President of the United States. Three members of Bill Clinton's cabinet, two Supreme Court Judges and a host of congressmen are also Oxonians. In Japan, Oxford University now boasts not only the future emperor, Crown Prince Naruhito, but also his future wife, Masako Owada (a Balliol woman), among its alumni. With the worlds two most powerful economies sewn up, Oxford can afford to be smug. For its tentacles in the new world, Oxford owes much to the system of RhodesScholarships, which since 1903, have attracted some of the brightest of America'spolitical climbers. Britain no longer rules the world. But, thanks to an old university with an excellent brand-name, it at least helps fashion the worlds rulers." -- London 'Economist', January 16, 1993.

Fortunately for the world, Rhodes did not wield enough political power during his lifetime to bring all the nations of the world under the rule of an international government. However, he left his fortune, acquired from diamond mining in Africa, to establish a scholarship program to indoctrinate promising young men and send them throughout the world to work toward the goal of world government.

Rhodes scholars helped to bring the United States of America into two World Wars, set up the United Nations, and gave to the nations of the world over one trillion dollars in the Marshall Plan and foreign aid funds. They have promoted free trade policies that are destroying American industry and causing innumerable social and economic problems.
