"The powers of financial capitalism had a far-reaching aim – nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent private meetings and conferences.

The apex of the system was to be the Bank for International Settlements [BIS] in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world’s central banks which were themselves private corporations … Each central bank sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world." — Carroll Quigley in his book "Tragedy and Hope".

Quigley was not exposing a "conspiracy". He was an advocate of the above scenario – a confidante of the Rothschilds, Warburgs, etc., Harvard professor and mentor to Bill Clinton. Knowing the mechanics of this worldwide "invisible government", Quigley was not interested in the human cost of this massive deception, or the ethics of manipulating history and current events. He was happy to report them as fait accompli.
