The Modern Science of Mass Manipulation of Public Opinion

Cover. Oswald Arnold Gottfried Spengler [1880 - 1936].


This text is an extract from the The Tavistock Institute of Human Relations: Shaping the Moral, Spiritual, Cultural, Political and Economic Decline of the United States of America [2006] by former MI6 intelligence officer, Dr. John Coleman.



The Tavistock Institute of Human Relations was unknown to the people of the United States before Dr. Coleman exposed its existence in his monograph, The Tavistock Institute of Human Relations: Britain's Control of the United States. Up to that time, Tavistock had successfully retained its secretive role in shaping the affairs of the United States, its government and its people since its early beginning in London, in 1913 at Wellington House.

Since Dr. Coleman's original article exposing this ultra-secret organisation, others have come forward with claims of authorship, which they were unable to substantiate. 

Tavistock began as a propaganda creating and disseminating organisation centered at Wellington House, which was where the original organisation was put together with intent of shaping a propaganda outlet that would break down the stiff public resistance being encountered to the looming war between Britain and Germany. 

The project was given to Lords Rothmere and Northcliffe and their mandate was to produce an organisation capable of manipulating public opinion and directing that manufactured opinion down the desired pathway to support for a declaration of war by Great Britain against Germany. 

Funding was provided by the British royal family, and later by the Rothschilds to whom Lord Northcliffe was related through marriage. Arnold Toynbee was selected as Director of Future Studies. Two Americans, Walter Lippmann and Edward Bernays were appointed to handle the manipulation of American public opinion in preparation for the entry of the United States into WWI, and to brief and direct President Woodrow Wilson. 

From a somewhat crude beginning at Wellington House, grew an organisation that was to shape the destiny of Germany, Britain and more especially the United States in manner that became a highly sophisticated organisation to manipulate and create public opinion, what is commonly termed, 'mass brainwashing.' 

During the course of its evolvement, Tavistock expanded in size and ambition, when in 1937, a decision was made to use the German author Oswald Spengler's monumental work, Untergange des Abenlandes [The Decline of Western Civilization] as a model. 

Previously, Wellington House board members Rothmere, Northcliffe, Lippmann, and Bernays had read and proposed as a guide the writings of Correa Moylan Walsh, in particular, the book The Climax of Civilization [1917] as corresponding closely to conditions that had to be created before a New World Order in a One World Government could be ushered in. 

In this endeavor the members of the board consulted with the British royal family and obtained the approval of the 'Olympians' [the inner core of the Committee of 300] to formulate a strategy. Funding was provided by the monarchy, the Rothschilds, the Milner Group and the Rockefeller family trusts. 

In 1936, Spengler's monumental work had come to the attention of what had become the Tavistock Institute. In preparation for changing and reshaping public opinion for the second time in less than twelve years, by unanimous consent of the board, Spengler's massive book was adopted as the blueprint for a new working model to bring about the decline and fall of Western civilisation necessary to create and establish a New World Order inside a One World Government. 

Spengler held it bound to happen that alien elements would be introduced into Western civilisation in increasing numbers, and that the West would fail at that time to expel the aliens, thereby sealing its fate, a society, whose inward beliefs and sound convictions would become at variance with its outward profession and thus Western civilisation would fall by the wayside in the manner of the ancient civilisations of Greece and Rome. 

Tavistock thinking was that Spengler had indoctrinated Western civilisation to believe that it would err on the side of Roman civilisation, and expel the aliens. The genetic loss that has fallen upon Europe-and especially on Scandinavia, England, Germany, France - [the Anglo-Saxon, Nordic Alpine Germanic races] that began just before the Second World War is already so great as to be beyond expectations, and continues at an alarming pace under the skilled guidance of the Tavistock managers. 

What was a very rare instance became a common occurrence, a black man married to a white women or vice-versa. 

The two World Wars cost the German nation almost one quarter of its population. Most of the intellectual energies of the German nation were diverted into war channels in defense of the Fatherland at the expense of science, arts, literature, music and the cultural, spiritual and moral advancement of the nation. The same could be said of the British nation. The blaze kindled by the British under the direction of Tavistock set all of Europe on fire, and did incalculable damage according to the Tavistock blueprint that matched Spengler's predictions. 

Classical and Western are the only two civilisations that could bring a modern renaissance to the world. They had flourished and progressed just as long as these civilizations remained under the control of the Anglo-Saxon Nordic Alpine, Germanic races. The unsurpassed beauty of their literature, art, their classics, spiritual and moral advancement of the female sex with a very large corresponding degree of protection, was what distinguished Western and Classic civilizations from others. 

It was this bastion that Spengler saw coming under increasing attack and the thinking at Tavistock ran on parallel tracks, but with a totally different goal. Tavistock saw this civilisations a stumbling block to ushering a New World Order, as did the emphasis on protection and elevation of the female sex to a place of high respect and honor. 

Thus the whole thrust of Tavistock was to 'democratise' the West by an attack on womanhood, and the racial, moral, spiritual and religious foundation upon which Western civilisation rested. 

As Spengler suggested, the Greeks and Romans were devoted to the social, religious, moral and spiritual advancement and the preservation of womanhood and they were successful for just as long as they were in control and could arrange matters so that government was carried out by a limited number of responsible citizens supported by the general populace below them, all being of the same pure unadulterated race. The planners at Tavistock saw that the way to upset the balance of Western civilisation was to force unwelcome changes in the race by removing control from the deserving to the undeserving in the manner of ancient Roman leaders who were supplanted by their former slaves and aliens, whom they had permitted to come and dwell among them. 

Tavistock, by 1937, had come a long way from its Wellington House beginnings and the successful propaganda campaign that had turned the British public from being strongly anti-war in 1913 to willing participants through the arts of manipulation with the willing cooperation of news communications media. 

The technique was carried across the Atlantic in 1916 to manipulate the American people to support of the war in Europe. In spite of the fact that the vast majority, including at least 50 U.S. Senators were adamantly opposed to the U.S. getting dragged into what they perceived was essentially a quarrel between Britain and France on the one hand, and Germany on the other, largely over trade and economics, the conspirators were undeterred. At that point Wellington House introduced the word, 'Isolationists' as a derogatory description of those Americans who opposed U.S. participation in the war. The use of such words and phrases has proliferated under the expert brainwashing of the Social sciences scientists at Tavistock. Terms like 'regime change,' 'collateral damage' became almost new English language.

With the Tavistock plan modified to suit American conditions, Bernays and Lippmann led President Woodrow Wilson to set up the very first Tavistock methodology techniques for polling [manufacturing] so-called public opinion created by Tavistock propaganda. They also taught Wilson to set up a secret body of 'managers' to run the war effort and a body of 'advisors' to assist the President in his decision-making. The Creel Commission was the first such body of opinion-makers set up in the United States. 

Woodrow Wilson was the first American president to publicly proclaim himself in favor of a Socialist New World Order inside a Socialist One World Government. His remarkable acceptance of the New World Order is found in his book The New Freedom

We say 'his' book, but actually, it was written by Socialist William B. Hayle. Wilson denounced capitalism. 'It is contrary to the common man and it has brought stagnation to our economy,' Wilson wrote. 

Yet, at the time, the United States economy was enjoying prosperity and industrial expansion as it had never experienced before in its history: 'We stand in the presence of a revolution - not a bloody revolution, America is not given to spilling blood - but a silent revolution, whereby America will insist upon recovering to practice those ideals which she has always professed, upon securing a government devoted to the general and not the special interests. We are upon the threshold of a time when the systematic life of the country will be sustained or at least supplemented at every point by government activity. And now we have to determine what kind of a government activity it shall be; whether, in the first place, it shall be directed from government itself, or whether it shall be indirect, through instrumentalities which have already constituted themselves and which stand ready to supersede government.'

While the U.S. was still a neutral power under the Wilson presidency, Wellington House poured out a cadence of lies about Germany, and what a threat it was to America. 

We are reminded of the statement made by Bakunin in 1814 as it tied in so well with the outrageous propaganda that Wilson made use of to bolster his case: 

'Lying by diplomacy: Diplomacy has no other mission. Every time a State wants to declare war upon another State, it starts off by launching a manifesto addressed not only to its own subjects but also to the whole world.

In this manifesto it declares that right and justice are on its side and endeavors to prove that it is actuated by love of peace and humanity [and democracy], and that, imbued with generous and peaceful sentiments, it suffered for a long time in silence until mounting iniquity of its enemy forced it to bare its sword. '

'At the same time it vows that, disdainful of all material conquest and not seeking any increase in territory, it will put an end to this war as soon as justice is reestablished. And its antagonist's answer with a similar manifesto, in which, naturally, right, justice and humanity and all generous sentiments are to be found respectively on its side. These mutually opposed manifestos are written with the same eloquence, they breath the same righteous indignation, and one is just as sincere as the other, that is to say they are both brazen in their lies, and it is only fools who are deceived by them. Sensible persons, all those who have some political experience do not even take the trouble of reading such manifestos.' 

President Wilson's statements just before he went to the Congress to request a constitutional declaration of war embodies every one of Bakunin's sentiments. 

He was 'lying by diplomacy' and he used the gross propaganda manufactured at Wellington House to inflame the American public by tales of atrocities committed by the German Army in its march across Belgium in 1914. As we shall discover, it was, for the most part, a gigantic lie passed off as truth. 

I remember looking through a large stack of old newspapers at the British Museum where I spent five years doing in-depth research. The papers covered the years 1912 to 1920. I recall thinking at the time: 'Isn't it amazing that the rush to the New World Order Socialist totalitarian government should be led by the United States, supposedly a bastion of freedom?' 

Then, as I recall, it came to me with great clarity that the Committee of 300 has its people at the highest and lowest echelons embedded in the U.S., in banking, industry, trade, defense, the State Department and indeed in the very White House, not to mention the Elite Club called the U.S. Senate, which in my view is a forum for pushing the New World Order.' 

I recall thinking that President Wilson's propaganda blast against Germany and the Kaiser [actually the product of Rothschild agents Lords Northcliffe and Rothmere, and the Wellington House propaganda factory] was not much different to the 'contrived situation' of Pearl Harbor, the Gulf of Tonkin 'incident' and looking back now I can see no difference between the propaganda lies about the brutality of German soldiers allegedly chopping off the arms and legs of little Belgian children in 1914, than the methods used to get the American people duped and doped into allowing the Bush administration to invade Iraq. Whereas in 1914 it was the Kaiser who was a 'brute savage,' a 'ruthless murderer', a 'monster', the 'Butcher of Berlin', in 2002 it was President Hussein who was all of these things and a whole lot more, including the "Butcher of Baghdad!" Poor duped, deluded, deceived, connived, trustful, America! When will you ever learn? 


'Whereas in 1914 it was the Kaiser who was a 'brute savage,' a 'ruthless murderer', a 'monster', the 'Butcher of Berlin', in 2002 it was President Hussein who was all of these things and a whole lot more, including the "Butcher of Baghdad!" Poor duped, deluded, deceived, connived, trustful, America! When will you ever learn?'


In 1917 the New World Order agenda was being rushed through the House and Senate by Woodrow Wilson, and President Bush forced the New World Order agenda for Iraq through the House and Senate in 2002 without debate, an exercise in arbitrary power and a gross violation of the U.S. Constitution for which the American people are paying a huge price. But the American people are suffering from toxic shock induced by the Tavistock Institute of Human Relations and the American people are in a state of sleepwalking and without leadership. 

They do not know what the price is and do not care to find out. The Committee of 300 continues to rule the United States, just as it did in the Wilson and Roosevelt presidencies, while the American people were distracted with 'bread and circuses' only today it is baseball, football, endless Hollywood, and Social Security. Nothing has changed. 

The United States, harried, hounded, pushed and shoved is headed of a fast track to the New World Order, propelled along by the Radical Republicans of the War Party who have been taken over by the scientists at the Tavistock Institute for Human Relations. 

Just recently I was asked by a subscriber 'where do we find the Tavistock Institute?' My response was: 'Look around the U.S. Senate, the House of Representatives, the White House, the State Department, the Defense Department, Wall Street, Fox T.V. [Faux T.V.] and you will see their change agents in every one of these places.' 

President Wilson was the first U.S. president to 'manage' the war through a civilian committee guided and directed by the Bernays and Lippmann from Wellington House, to which we have already made mention. 

The resounding success of Wellington House and its enormous influence on the course of American history began before that in 1913. Wilson had spent almost a year tearing down the protective trade tariffs that had defended the American domestic markets from being overwhelmed by 'Free Trade,' essentially the practice of allowing cheap British goods made with cheap labor in India to flood the American market. On October 12, 1913 Wilson signed the bill that was the beginning of the end of the unique American middle class, long the target of the Fabian Socialists. The bill was described as a measure to 'adjust tariffs,' but it would have been accurate to describe it as a bill to 'destroy tariffs.' 

Such was the hidden power of Wellington House that the vast majority of the American people accepted this lie, not knowing or realising that it was a death knell for American commerce that would lead to NAFTA, GATT and the World Trade Organization [WTO]. Even more astonishing was the acceptance of the Federal Income Tax Act that was passed on September 5, 1913, to replace trade tariffs as the source of revenue for the Federal Government. Income Tax is a Marxist doctrine not found in the U.S. Constitution anymore than the Federal Reserve Bank is found in the Constitution. Wilson called his twin blows against the Constitution, 'a fight for the people, and for free business,' and said he was proud to have taken 'part in the completion of a great piece of business...' The Federal Reserve Act, explained by Wilson as 'reconstructing the Nation's banking and currency system' was rushed through on a flood-tide of propaganda emanating from Wellington House, just in time for the hostilities that began the horror of WWI. 

Most historians are agreed that without passage of the Federal Reserve Bank Act, Lord Grey would not have been able to start that terrible conflagration.

The deceptive language of the Federal Reserve Act was under the guidance of Bernays and Lippman who set up a 'National Citizen's League' with the notorious Samuel Untermeyer as its chairman, to promote the Federal Reserve Bank, that secured control of the people's money and currency and transferred it to a private monopoly without the victim's consent. 

One of the most interesting pieces of history surrounding the imposition of the foreign financial slavery measure was that before it was sent to Wilson for his signature, a copy was given to the sinister Colonel Edward Mandel House as the representative of Wellington House and the British oligarchy represented by the banker, J.P. Morgan. 

As to the American people, in whose name the disastrous measure was instituted, they had not the faintest idea how they had been connived, cheated, lied to and utterly deceived. An instrument of slavery was fastened around their necks without the victims ever becoming aware of it.

Wellington House methodology was at its height when Wilson was coached in how to persuade Congress to declare war on Germany, although he had won election on the solemn promise to keep America out of the war then raging in Europe, a great triumph for the new art of public opinion making. It was just that - the poll questions were shaded in such away that the answers reflected the opinions of the public; not their understanding of the questions, nor their understanding of the processes of political science. 

A thorough search and reading of the Congressional Records from 1910 to 1920 by this writer showed very clearly that had Wilson not signed the iniquitous 'currency reform' bill on December 23, 1913, the upper-level parallel secret government of the United States foretold by H.G. Wells would not have been able to commit the vast resources of the United States to the war in Europe. 

The House of Morgan representing the 'Olympians' of the Committee of 300, and its all powerful City of London financial nexus, played a leading role in shaping the 'U.S. Federal Reserve Banks,' which were neither 'Federal' nor "banks," but a private money-generating monopoly fastened around the necks of the American people whose money was now free to be stolen on an unimaginable scale, making them slaves of the New World Order inside the coming One World Government. The Great Depression of the 1930s was the second major catastrophic bill the American people had to pay, the first being World War I. 

Those who read this book as a first introduction to the New World Order inside a One World Government will be skeptical; but consider that no less a personage than the great Sir Harold Mackinder did not hide his beliefs about its coming. 

More than that, he gave notice that it might be a dictatorship. Sir Harold had an impressive resume [CV] having been Professor of Geography at the University of London; a director of the London School of Economics from 1903-1908 and a Member of Parliament from 1910-1922. He was also a close associate of Arnold Toynbee one of the leading lights at Wellington House. He had correctly predicted a core of startling geopolitical events, many of them actually coming to pass. 

One such 'prophecy' was the founding of two Germanys, the Social Democratic Republic of Germany and the Federal Republic of Germany. Critics suggested that he got the information from Toynbee; that it was merely the long range planning of the Committee of 300 that Toynbee knew about. 

After Wellington House, Toynbee moved to the Royal Institute for International Affairs [RIIA], and then to London University where he held the chair for International History. In his book, America and World Revolution he said: 'If we are to avoid mass-suicide, we must have our world-state quickly and this probably means that we must have it in a non-democratic form to begin with. We will have to start building a world-state now on the best design that is practicable at the moment.'

Toynbee went on in a forthright manner saying this 'world dictatorship' would have to supplant 'the local national states which litter the present political map.' 

The new world-state was to be brought about on the basis of mass mind control and propaganda that would make it acceptable. I explained in my book The Committee of 300, that Bernays 'blew the whistle' on polling in his 1923 and 1928 books, Propaganda, and Crystallizing Public Opinion.

This was followed by Engineering Consent

Self-preservation, ambition, pride, hunger, love of family and children, patriotism, imitativeness, the desire to be a leader, love of play - these and other drives are the psychological raw materials which every leader must take into account in his endeavor to win the public to his point of view... To maintain their self-assurance, most people need to feel certain that whatever they believe about anything is true. 

These revealing works are examined and we should add that in writing them, the Tavistock hierarchy apparently felt secure enough to gloat over their control of the United States and Great Britain that had blossomed into an open conspiracy along the lines first suggested by H.G. Wells. 

With the advent of Wellington House, funded by the British monarchy and later by Rockefeller, Rothschild and the United States, Western civilisation entered into the first phase of a plan that would provide a secret government to rule the world, namely, the Committee of 300. 

Tavistock Institute of Human Relations was its creation.... The '300's' carefully structured blueprint has been followed to the letter and today as we reach the end of 2005, looking back it is fairly easy for knowledgeable persons to trace the course that was laid out for Western civilisation and to mark its progression to the point where we are today. This book is an attempt to do just that.
