Cecil Rhodes

A Blueprint and its Architect Exposed


I contend that we are the first race in the world, and that the more of world we inhabit, the better it is for the human race…Added to which the absorption of the greater portion of the world under our rule simply means the end of all wars.” Cecil Rhodes

For a long time now we’ve all been hearing whispers in the media about citizens being or who have been indoctrinated the beliefs of the new world order with educational assistance via the Rhode’s [sic] Scholarships. These individuals are commonly referred to as “Rhodes Scholars”.


Perhaps now is the time to shed some light about the shadow figure who from his grave, has helped finance and transform our world in more ways than the vast majority of Americans realize.

With the election of Rhodes Scholar, Bill Clinton, to the White House in 1992, it is important Americans learn more about this man who seems to have captivated the minds and imaginations of politicians and industrialists worldwide and left them spellbound.

The truth about Cecil Rhodes is startling. This book is not intended to be a biography of Cecil Rhodes. Several very good biographies exist and can be found in your library and bookstores.

Though long gone, the beliefs carried forth by Rhodes and Churchill have now been passed on to officials in the American and British governments.

The following paragraphs will shed some light on the person the aforementioned admire a great deal. After reading it you’ll probably be as perplexed as I was when I first made the connection.

Cecil Rhodes was born in 1853. He moved from England to South Africa in 1872 to assist his brothers [sic] development of a cotton plantation. When his brother lost interest in the cotton plantation Cecil was left behind to manage it. Although he was fascinated by the business of cotton, the business floundered. Cecil left the world of cotton to join his brother in what became one of the worlds most bizarre chain of events.

Cecil’s brother’s ambition had turned to diamond mining. Soon Cecil was on his way to amassing a fortune that few of this world could ever dream of. By 1872 Cecil was earning 5,000 pounds annually, a very handsome sum for the time. Cecil also had ambitions of higher education. In 1873 Cecil returned to England with the diamond business being managed by, Charles Rudd, his trusted partner. It was at Oxford that the path of Cecil Rhodes, the pupil, and John Ruskin, the English author and philosopher crossed.


Ruskin read Plato every day. Plato envisioned a ruling class with tremendous power wielded by an army, which dominated the world. Previous generations would be swept away to make way for this new order.

It was at an Oxford lecture by John Ruskin that Cecil Rhodes found his goal in life. Ruskin in his lecture stated, “Have a fixed purpose of some kind for your country and yourselves. Make your country for all the world a source of light, a centre for peace. This is what England must do or perish.: she must form colonies abroad as far and as fast as she is able.”

Cecil Rhodes was on a mission. It certainly was not a mission from GOD. After his mother had died in 1873, Rhodes became disenchanted with Christianity. He wrote that, “The odds of there being a GOD are at best only 50-50.” Later he also wrote, “If there is a GOD, he only exist as so many atoms.”

Rhodes dedication to his mission would not be interrupted. He vowed never to marry or have children. These would only get in the way of accomplishing his goal. Rhodes maintained his vow. He departed this world and left his ‘vast fortune to associates who would use it to establish a “secret society”.

His goals were put forth in his will. In it he calls for establishing a “secret organization”. The ultimate objective of this society was to work, “for the extension of British rule throughout the world”, and “the ultimate recovery of the United States of America as an integral part of the British Empire.”

Cecil Rhodes shared very few ideals that we take for granted in the United States today. His companies conducted overt operations and kept secret files on important South Africans, even those with whom he did no business. His companies had their own police and detective forces. To squelch news or stories about him or his companies that were critical or unfavorable, Rhodes bought major or controlling interests in the press in England and South Africa.

In his will, written in 1877, he suggested, “crush all disloyalty and every movement for the severance of our Empire.” He went on to say in his will, “The Society should inspire and even own portions of the press for the press rules the minds of the people.”

He also stated that the goals of this secret society should be to bring the whole world under British rule, including retrieving the United States, which was already a sovereign nation, and to making the Anglo-Saxon race one Empire.

By far the most disturbing part of his will describes the tremendous anger and despair he feels because of the ‘‘disgrace” that is being perpetuated by, “the low class Irish and German emigrants” who had settled in the United States.

That a scholarship should be held in such esteem worldwide reprehensible. If his contempt for Germans and Irish was so great one can only wonder what he thought of the millions of tribesmen that he exploited in his conquest for the tons of gold and thousands of buckets of diamonds he stripped from the land.

Since so many of today’s government and business leaders are indoctrinated using the funds of the Rhode’s [sic] Scholarship, perhaps it is in our best interest to analyze this man that so many people associate with providing the ideals for a better world.

Obviously Rhodes fanatical beliefs stirred the hearts of many people. This is quite obvious in a book published in 1918 by one of the fathers of German Nazism, Oswald Spengler. In The Decline of the West Spengler wrote, “Rhodes is to be regarded as the first precursor of a western type of Caesar. He stands midway between Napoleon and the force-men of the centuries.” In another volume published four years later Spengler’s affection for Rhodes ideals had continued to grow. Spengler wrote, “in our Germanic world the spirits of Alaric and Theodoric will come again – there is a first hint of them in Cecil Rhodes.”

In the only documented public statement available Adolf Hitler himself stated at dinner on April 18, 1942 that he shared Rhodes opinions and that Cecil Rhodes was the only one who understood the conditions for continuing worldwide British supremacy.

Ironically Cecil Rhodes thought of himself as Roman, comparing himself to Hadrian and had numerous statues of himself created. The well-defined instructions he left for his ornate funeral, in 1902, were for the likes of a head-of-state or great emperor. His body was memorialized in a vast
wasteland on the plains of Africa.

According to Georgetown Professor Carroll Quigley’s Tragedy and Hope, Rhodes was so consumed with the ambitions that John Ruskin had instilled in him, that despite his fantastic wealth, his accounts were regularly overdrawn!

To finance his vision Rhodes bequeathed his vast estate to the administration of Lord Rothschild of England. After Rhodes death, in 1902, Lord Rothschild honored Rhodes final request by establishing the Rhodes Scholarships at Oxford. Rhodes dream of a secret society continuing after his death was realized. Today its’ graduates can be found in government, business, and media establishments around the world. From all over the world “candidates” are nominated and selected to further the mad dreams of someone few Americans know about.

It was Rothschild’s financial assistance that allowed Rhodes to gain virtual monopoly over the world’s diamond market in the 1890’s with the consolidation of several companies into DeBeers Mines. In addition to the diamonds, Rhodes had tremendous interest in gold mines. In the 1890’s Cecil Rhodes had amassed a fortune of over 1 million pounds, or over $100 million if compared to its’ value today.

Rothschild backed Rhodes’ move to corner the world diamond market. Together they succeeded. By 1891 Rhodes exerted complete control over all South African mines and 90% of the world’s diamonds. With the Diamond Syndicate in place Rhodes now tightly held both the world supply and price of diamonds! For this feat Rothschild earned Rhodes’ complete confidence.

The colony of Rhodesia was named after Cecil Rhodes. In the 1970’s the land that had suffered under the thumb of Cecil Rhodes and his fellow exploiters eventually regained its’ sovereignty and was renamed Zimbabwe.

It is important that Americans learn more about Cecil Rhodes and understand what he believed in. For that reason a copy of Cecil Rhodes Will is reprinted on the following pages. It was written in 1877. No efforts were made to correct spelling or grammatical errors.

Rhodes’ Will

Confession of Faith

It often strikes a man to enquire what is the chief goal in life; to one the thought comes that it is a happy marriage, to another great wealth, and as each seizes on his idea, for that he more or less works for the rest of his existence. To myself thinking over the same question the wish came to render myself useful to my country. I then asked myself how could I and after reviewing the various methods I have felt that at the present day we are actually limiting our children and perhaps bringing into the world half the human beings we might owing to the lack of country for them to inhabit that if we had retained America there would at this moment be millions more of English living. I contend that we are the finest race in the world and that the more of the world we inhabit the better it is for the human race. Just fancy those parts that are at present inhabited by the most despicable specimens of human beings what an alteration there would be if they were brought under Anglo-Saxon influence, look again at the extra employment a new country added to our dominions gives. I contend that every acre added to our territory means in the future birth to some more of the English race who otherwise would not be brought into existence. Added to this the absorption of the greater portion of the world under our rule simply means the end of all wars, at this moment had we not lost America I believe we could have stopped the Russian-Turkish war by merely refusing money and supplies. Having these ideas what scheme could we think of to forward this object. I look into history and I read the story of the Jesuits I see what they were able to do in a bad cause and I might say under bad leaders.

In the present day I became a member of the Masonic order I see the wealth and power they possess the influence they hold and I think over their ceremonies and I wonder that a large body of men can devote themselves to what at times appear the most ridiculous and absurd rites without an object and without an end.

The idea gleaming and dancing before one’s 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 but one Empire. What a dream, but yet it is probable, it is possible. I once heard it argued by a fellow in my own college, I am sorry to own it by an Englishman, that it was a good thing for us that we have lost the United States. There are some subjects on which there can be no arguments, and to an Englishman this is one of them, but even from an American’s point of view just picture what they have lost, look at their government, are not the frauds that yearly come before the public view a disgrace to any country and especially their’s which is the finest in the world. Would they have occurred had they remained under English rule great as they have become how infinitely greater they would have been with the softening and elevating influences of English rule, think of those countless 000’s of Englishmen that during the last 100 years would have crossed the Atlantic and settled and populated the United States. Would they have not made without any prejudice a finer country of it than the low class Irish and German emigrants? All this we have lost and that country loses owing to whom? Owing to two or three ignorant pig-headed statesmen of the last century, at their door lies the blame. Do you ever feel mad? do you ever feel murderous. I think I do with those men. I bring facts to prove my assertions. Does an English father when his sons wish to emigrate ever think of suggesting emigration under another flag, never – it would seem a disgrace to suggest such a thing I think that we all think that poverty is better under our own flag rather than wealth under a foreign one.

Put your mind into another train of thought. Fancy Australia discovered and colonised under the French flag, what would it mean merely several millions of English unborn that at present exist {Hitler was not more racist} we learn from the past and to form our future. We learn through having lost to cling to wehat we possess. We know the size of the world we know the total extent. Africa is still lying ready for us it is our duty to take it. It is our duty to seize every oportunity of acquiring more territory and we should keep this one idea steadily before our eyes that more territory simply means more of the Anglo-Saxon race more of the best the most human, most honourable race the world possesses.

To forward such a scheme what a splendid help a secret society would be a society not openly acknowledged but who would work in secret for such an object. I contend that there are at the present moment numbers of the ablest men in the world who would devote their whole lives to it. I often think what a loss to the English nation in some respects the abolition of the Rotten Borough System has been. What thought strikes a man entering the house of commons, the assembly that rules the whole world? I think it is the mediocrity of the men but what is the cause. It is simply – an assembly of wealth of men whose lives have been spent in the accumulation of money and whose time has been too much engaged to be able to spare any for the study of past history. And yet in the hands of such men rest our destinies. Do men like the great Pitt, and Bourke and Sheridan not now exist. I contend they do. There are men now living with I know no other term the μεγα χσχεγις of Aristotle but there are not ways for enabling them to serve their Country. They live and die unused unemployed. What has been the main cause of the success of the Romish Church? The fact that every enthusiast, call it if you like every madman finds employment in it. Let us form the same kind of society a Church for the extension of the British Empire. A society which should have its members in every part of the British Empire working with one object and one idea we should have its members placed at our universities and our schools and should watch the English youth passing through their hands just one perhaps in every thousand would have the mind and feelings for such an object, he should be tried in every way, he should be tested whether he is endurant, possessed of eloquence, disregardful of the petty details of life, and if found to be such, then elected and bound by oath to serve for the rest of his life in his Country. He should then be supported if without means by the Society and sent to that part of the Empire where it was felt he was needed.

Take another case, let us fancy a man who finds himself his own master with ample means on attaining his majority whether he puts the question directly to himself or not, still like the old story of virtue and vice in the Memorabilia a fight goes on in him as to what he should do. Take it he plunges into dissipation there is nothing too reckless he does not attempt but after a time his life pulls on him, he mentally says this is not good enough, he changes his life, he reforms, he travels, he thinks now I have found the chief good in life, the novelty wears off, and he tires, to change again, he goes into the far interior after the wild game he thinks at last I’ve found that in life of which I cannot tire, again he is disappointed. He returns he thinks is there nothing I can do in life? Here I am with means, with a good house, with everything that is to envied and yet I am not happy I am tired of life he possesses within him a portion of the μεγα χσχεγις of Aristotle but he knows it not, to such a man the Society should go, should test, and should finally show him the greatness of the scheme and list him as a member.

Take one more case of the younger son with high thoughts, high aspirations, endowed by nature with all the faculties to make a great man, and with the sole wish in his life to serve his Country but he lacks two things the means and the opportunity, ever troubled by a sort of inward deity urging him on to high and noble deeds, he is compelled to pass his time in some occupation which furnishes him with mere existence, he lives unhappily and dies miserably. Such men as these the Society should search out and use for the furtherance of their object.

(In every Colonial legislature the Society should attempt to have its members prepared at all times to vote or speak and advocate the closer union of England and the colonies, to crush all disloyalty and every movement for the severance of our Empire. The Society should inspire and even own portions of the press for the press rules the mind of the people. The Society should always be searching for members who might by their position in the world by their energies or character forward the object but the ballot and test for admittance should be severe)

Once make it common and it fails. Take a man of great wealth who is bereft of his children perhaps having his mind soured by some bitter disappointment who shuts himself up separate from his neighbours and makes up his mind to a miserable existence. To such men as these the society should go gradually disclose the greatness of their scheme and entreat him to throw in his life and property with them for this object. I think that there are thousands now existing who would eagerly grasp at the opportunity. Such are the heads of my scheme.

For fear that death might cut me off before the time for attempting its development I leave all my worldly goods in trust to S. G. Shippard and the Secretary for the Colonies at the time of my death to try to form such a Society with such an object.

In 1888 Rhodes revised his will adding the following statement:

This is my last will – and all other wills I have made are hereby revoked. I leave equally among my brothers and sisters two thousand DeBeers and the balance of my property to Lord Rothschild.
