“Dear readers, ask yourselves, when has Washington told you anything that was not a lie? Washington’s lies have caused millions of casualties. Do you want to be a casualty of Washington’s lies?” Paul Craig Roberts

Moses Hess, Karl Marx’s collaborator, postulated in the nineteenth century that the end of history will have to be understood in messianic and therefore historical terms.
Hess perceived that this will inevitably create serious conflict among those who do not accept messianic ideology which he himself was articulating in his book Rome and Jerusalem.
According to Hess, Jewish revolutionaries are supposed to break taboos and cross boundaries. As a corollary, those revolutionaries will continually strive to break open the abyss of anarchic revolution.
Hess even suggested that this revolution is “a special vocation,” and that revolutionaries like himself have carried this “messianic epoch of the world since the beginning of history.”
Hess, being a biological racialist and metaphysically and theologically anti-Semitic, declared that if a Jew does not follow that line of revolution, he is “a traitor to his race and his family.”
So, Hess’ formula is quite simple: to be a revolutionary Jew you have to go back to your roots; to go back to your roots you have to ally yourself with subversive movements; to ally yourself with subversive movements you have to go against the status quo; and going against the status quo will invariably mean attacking the moral and political order.
Attacking the moral order will inevitably create an existential struggle. In that struggle, argued Hess, the Jewish people will have to overcome their perceived enemies. Only then, Hess stated, will history come to fruition. And only then will the Jewish people dominate the entire world. Hess declared,
“[T]he chosen, holy people who hitherto have groaned under the oppressor’s heel, shall in their turn inherit dominion over the whole earth. This will be the culmination of history.”
Heinrich Graetz, one of the fathers of Jewish historiography, understood Hess’ ideology quite well. Graetz wrote Hess a letter in 1868, four years after Hess wrote Rome and Jerusalem, saying,
“I am looking forward with pleasure to flogging the Germans and their leaders—Schleirmacher, Fichte, and the whole wretched Romantic school.”
And then Graetz dropped the ideological bomb which lies at the heart of the historical conflict:
“We must above all work to shatter Christianity.”
Freud also understood that revolutionary ideology, and he saw Christianity—most specifically the Catholic Church—as his frontal enemy. Through sexual perversion, Freud thought that victory over Christianity was possible.
Wilhelm Reich, one of Freud’s devoted disciples, picked that subversive theme up and seduced priests and nuns.
Were Hess, Graetz, Freud, and Reich alive today, they probably would have greeted Jewish historian Yuri Slezkine of the University of California with a standing ovation for his study, The Jewish Century. Slezkine declares that
“Both Marxism and Freudianism were organized religions, with their own churches and sacred texts, and both Marx and Freud were true messiahs insofar as they stood outside time and could not be justified in terms of their teachings.”
