The Illusion of Democracy, Freedom, and the American Dream

By Alan R. Adaschik, Wake Up World

“The owners of this country know the truth; it’s called the American Dream because you have to be asleep to believe it.” — George Carlin

As Bob Dylan said, “the times they are a’changin”… and unfortunately, what is changing most prominently is how we are governed. Most Americans are unaware of what is happening and, even more incredibly, of those in the know, many condone and support what is being done. I do not, and that is why I am sitting at my keyboard — I am trying to wake people up.

Americans take pride in our government. This is because the government we think we have is something to be proud of. However, the simple truth of the matter is that we no longer have the government most of us think we have, and instead, we have something that is the brainchild of the New World Order.

This heretofore secret organization has placed our present government under the thumb of their new government and, by so doing, has turned the government we have into a parody of democratic representation, and our nation into a shadow of what it once was.

The question is, should we be proud of our new secretly-controlled government? And pledge allegiance to it? My answer to both of these questions is ‘no’, and in case you don’t yet get my drift, let me state for the record that I am an American who is ashamed of the kind of government we have, ashamed of the acts it commits and the pretenses it hides behind, and ashamed of my fellow Americans who, by living in denial, despite all evidence of treason, are passively participating in our continued subjugation and enslavement.

The problem is that the NWO, up to recently, has planned and plotted in secret. Fortunately, this has changed and we now know a lot more about who they are and what they are trying to accomplish. Recently, David Rockefeller, a NWO principle and a founder of the Trilateral Commission, in an address to the Trilateral Commission given in June of 1991, said the following:

“We are grateful to the Washington Post, the New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the light of publicity during those years. But now the world is more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supra-national sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries.”

The “we” David Rockefeller refers to is the New World Order. Let’s not mince words here. If you wish to choose another name for what Mr. Rockefeller is talking about then you are free to do so, but whatever you call this fledgling world government it should be clear that David Rockefeller has assured us that one exists. This much is certain and now that one of the NWO’s founders has let the cat out of the bag, we also know the following:

  • The leadership of the New World Order has met in secret for almost forty years to develop their plan to rule the world.
  • The directors of major news publications of our main-stream media have attended these meetings and failed to report what was going on to the American people.
  • If the American people had been aware of what was going on, they would have been opposed to the decisions being made and stopped these changes from happening.
  • A world dictatorship of the moneyed elite is a superior to democracy.

Mr. Rockefeller’s words tell us a lot about the New World Order and it should be evident that the government we are talking about is peopled by unelected individuals who rule for life. This being the case, two issues are of concern; what is the nature and character of the government under question and what is the nature and character of the people we are talking about. If we are stuck with this government and these individuals for the foreseeable future, knowing its nature and their character is very important.

The first thing evident is that our NWO masters have an ego problem. They think having unconscionable amounts of money makes them better than everyone else and, even more incomprehensibly, they think that it bestows upon them a special right to rule the world. However, the situation is far worse than this. Their ego problem has rendered them out of touch with reality. If they are better than everyone else, then it follows that they believe that are superior human beings. This being the case, it logically follows that the rest of us are inferior human beings. Therefore, not only do they believe they have a special right to rule the world, they also think they have a duty and obligation to because us lesser human beings are not capable of governing ourselves.

This kind of warped and perverted thinking is similar to the philosophies that gripped Nazi Germany under Adolph Hitler’s rule. The Nazis also believed they were superior to everyone else in the world. In fact, if we substitute “intellectual elite” for Aryan, we find that David Rockefeller and Adolph Hitler are cut from the same block of wood. Furthermore, if Adolph Hitler suddenly arose from his grave, he undoubtedly would shake Mr. Rockefeller’s hand and congratulate him for a job well done. History teaches us that we are in real danger when individuals in positions of authority think they are better than other people and, unfortunately, history is now repeating itself. Once again a group of megalomaniacs is trying to take over the world.

However, this is not the entire story. David Rockefeller admits that if Americans had been aware of what he and his fellow conspirators where up to, they would have been opposed to their plans. This is shocking! What kind of despicable human being brags about being able to fool an entire nation and sees nothing wrong with forcing his will upon a free and independent people? At least Adolph Hitler was honest enough to announce his intentions to the world before he assumed power.

No such claim to candor can be made by David Rockefeller and his co-conspirators. Their actions are not a mark of honest men or honorable human beings. Furthermore, they also fall short of the bar when it comes to integrity. From my perspective, Mr. Rockefeller and his cronies, including the depraved corporate moguls from the fourth estate who watched in silence while these people plotted against us, are not only not as good as the rest of us, but in truth are despicable human beings who deserve our contempt and ridicule.

This now brings us to a far more sinister topic. For the most part our NWO masters are Americans who were born in this country. Therefore, they are citizens of this nation who, like the rest of us through the years, have pledged allegiance to our flag and the republic for which it stands. Apparently, this pledge meant nothing to them because for the past forty years they recited our Pledge of Allegiance before God and the people of this nation while meeting in secret to plot against us. It is highly ironic that a group of people labeling themselves “intellectually elite” and who think this gives them a mandate to rule the entire world, upon analysis, are nothing more than a cabal of lying traitors who corrupted the nation of their birth and had the unmitigated gall to reduce their fellow citizens to subjugation and bondage.

A bedrock principal of good government and the American experiment in democracy is that a government’s legitimacy depends upon the consent of the governed. If the New World Order had to fool us in order to assume power, how legitimate is the government they created? I certainly didn’t give them my consent and I certainly do not approve of the way I am being governed. And what “way” are we talking about?

The overriding characteristic of the abomination they created is that they decide and we abide; the hallmark of a dictatorship! You can call it Communism, Fascism, totalitarianism, imperialism, or whatever “ism” you like! All these terms fit our situation quite well, but irrespective of what you wish to call it, the bottom line is that the government of the people, by the people, and for the people of which Abraham Lincoln spoke has perished from the earth and President Lincoln, our Founding Fathers, and all the other great Americans we have held in reverence throughout our lives are turning over in their graves.



Unfortunately, in the United States of America today, governmental change by stealth is the order of the day and things have progressed to the point where not only is consent of the governed a dysfunctional concept, it has been almost entirely replaced by deception and illusion. We are truly now a nation of the con and conned and we euphemize this lamentable state of affairs by calling it “politics”. Unfortunately, the end result of the “politics” we are talking about is that not only have we been robbed of our heritage and birthright, we are now being ravaged and looted economically with the complicity and cooperation of those entrusted to protect us.


The issue on hand that would be of major concern to our Founding Fathers and should be to us, is how well does the government we presently live under measure up to the above-described principles? Unfortunately, upon examination, the answer to this question is painfully obvious; it does not.

First and foremost, we do not have a government that is “of the people”. Instead, our elected representatives are lifelong professional politicians whose first order of business is feathering their own nest and protecting the status quo. However, this is not the worst of it because in the United States of America today it takes a tremendous amount of money to run for national office. Therefore, in keeping with a desire to look out for their own interests, the very first order of business of a professional politician is to ensure that those providing him with money and support continue to do so. The only way to do this is to do their bidding. No one with power and influence contributes to and supports politicians so they can independently vote their conscience in the best interests of this nation and its people. Therefore, the real first order of business of a professional politician is to vote to please those who contribute money and do favors for them. Doing what is best for the people of this nation is secondary. …

In conclusion, Americans are free to go to the bathroom when the need arises, but when it comes to enjoying the elements that comprise political freedom, all of them have been compromised and are essentially dysfunctional. Yet, we go about our business thinking this is not the case. We think we are free because we confuse personal freedom with political freedom and no one in government, the media, or our educational institutions will risk their jobs or future well-being by clearing up our misconceptions. We have lost the only thing that ensures our personal freedom–our political freedom–and an inevitable result is that we are now losing our personal freedom as well.

If we have been robbed of our political freedom by those elected to serve us, what then does this say about the kind of democracy we have? No American would intentionally vote away our political freedom, yet it is gone and has been taken from us without our consent. This makes a mockery of democracy and establishes that the democracy we have is only an illusion.

100 Years of Deception: A Blueprint for the Destruction of a Nation

100 Years of Deception - A Blueprint for the Destruction of a NationThink you know American history? Think again.

Through “100 Years of Deception”, author Alan R. Adaschik reveals how the citizens of the United States have been played for fools over the past century. Very few Americans know anything about what is behind the events which have shaped our nation. Most of us assume that information provided by the mainstream news industry is the truth, however, on critical issues, we only get part of the story and a lot of important information is left out, deliberately shaping our perceptions of events and our society’s institutions.

This book is one man’s attempt to show Americans not just the trees, but the forest as well.

100 Years of Deception” demonstrates that the U.S. government was overthrown in 1913 by a group of conspirators who engineered passage of the Federal Reserve Act. Since then, these people have pulled the strings that made a nation dance. By controlling the media and infiltrating most key institutions of our society, they have kept Americans oblivious to what they were doing, and why, creating systems that are self-serving to them and not in the best interests of the nation.

This book sheds much-needed light upon what most people do not know, in the hope of snapping them out of the trance which holds them in captivity.

“A conspiracy theorist’s dream book – but without the ridiculous notions or need for a tinfoil hat. This author knows his material… We all know that the media is controlled – this tells us how and who.”

“100 Years of Deception: A Blueprint for the Destruction of a Nation” is available here on Amazon.
