I. Summary Statement
Leo Strauss was a University Of Chicago philosophy instructor. His students
left the University in search of political power; formed neo-conservatism, became
known as Neocons; these rose to power in the White House displacing CFR multilateralist
lynchpins such as Richard Haass and George Shultz http://tinyurl.com/qotay
now full-blown Straussism directs domestic and foreign policy.
Despite having been displaced from the Oval Office, the CFR created http://tinyurl.com/omaak
and submitted to the Neocons, the Security and Prosperity Partnership Of North
American, it is the manifesto for the North American Union.
The North American Union was created on March 23, 2005 when George Bush, Vincente
Fox and Paul Martin signed the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North
America (SPP) at the Baylor University http://tinyurl.com/eey4x

An examination of the documents and statements surrounding the North American
Union reveals that the philosophy of Leo Strauss is the foundation for the North
Once the North American Union is installed by military force, there will no
longer be life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness; the only thing there will
be is tyranny – the rule from above called for by Leo Strauss.
II. The Person Of Leo Strauss And His Disciples
Philosopher Leo Strauss, was born in Germany in 1899. Leo Strauss watched the
Weimar Republic dissolve into chaos. As a Jew, he was forced to flee Germany
and he eventually ended up at the University of Chicago, where he developed
a cult following from some the brightest students.
For Strauss, the demise of the Weimar Republic represented a repudiation of
liberal democracy. Liberalism, to Strauss, equals relativism, which necessarily
leads to nihilism. Strauss longed to return to a previous, pre-liberal, pre-bourgeois
era of blood and guts, of imperial domination, of authoritarian rule, of pure
These views resonated with Straussian disciples such as Paul Wolfowitz, Richard
Perle, William Kristol and Harry Jaffa. They took these ideas out of the classroom
and translated them into actual political doctrine: the neoconservative manifesto
of the Project for a New American Century. Straussian principles would be implemented
on a global scale, and 9/11 provided the perfect pretext. Paul Wolfowitz, who
attended Strauss's lectures on Plato, became the architect of the Iraq War,
using hyped intelligence concerning WMD's as the "noble lie". http://tinyurl.com/of2p4
Paul Wolfowitz rose in the White House ranks. Acting under orders of Donald
Rumsfeld, he established NORTHCOM on 10-02- 2002 in Colorado Springs, where
he said: "Each one of you here will help America and her allies win this
war. And let there be no doubt, we will win this war." http://tinyurl.com/g6z99
Paul Wolfowitz, in establishing NORTHCOM, affirmed the work of the Bi-national
Process Group (BPG) in merging Canada's military with that of the United States.
Clearly his actions were outside the boundaries of Constitutional Law which
require that any such treaty agreements go through the Senate treaty ratification
Although Paul Wolfowitz transitioned out of the White House to become president
of the World Bank in 2006 http://tinyurl.com/m2rgn
the Neocons fully embrace and manifest the philosophy of Leo Strauss.
III. The philosophy of Leo Strauss, as seen through the Bush administration's
actions and documents, are the foundation of the North American Union.
1) The Few Must Rule The Many
John Locke and the American founding fathers held “the natural law
tradition” which holds that man possesses natural rights to life, liberty,
and property and that the state is always and everywhere the greatest threat
to these God-given rights. To the founders, this meant that government should
be "bound by the chains" of the Constitution, to paraphrase Jefferson.
If men were angels, there would be no need for government, Madison wrote in
defense of the Constitution. But men are not angels, Madison continued, which
is why government power must always be limited.
Leo Strauss rejected this view of natural rights in favor of Plato’s
“philosopher-king” model of government; the “philosopher
kings” exercise the “rule of the wise”. Straussians assign
dignity to the few. The superiority of the “ruling philosophers”
is an intellectual superiority and not a moral one.
Only the elite few: the three presidents and their inner circle,
together with Robert B. Sloan Jr., President of Baylor University were present
at the signing of the SPP http://tinyurl.com/f32mg
2) Virtue Is Defined By The Elite: It Is That Which Is “For The
The elite few are to have unlimited state power who use it to pursue “virtue”
with virtue being, their own vision of "the public good." Moral
virtue had no application to the really intelligent man, the philosopher.
Moral virtue only existed in popular opinion, where it served the purpose
of controlling the unintelligent majority.
Since the SPP’s signing, the business elite and the political
elite have continually met behind closed doors in ‘working groups’
to determine trade and commerce regulations for the new North American Super-State
3) The Strong Must Rule The Weak
Strauss taught: “The strong must rule the weak”; this was presented
quite well in Jim Lobe's article 'The Strong Must Rule The Weak' http://tinyurl.com/qtlnn
4) Only One Natural Right: The Right Of The Wise Few To Rule Over The
Those who are fit to rule are those who realize there is neither God nor
morality and that there is only one natural right – the right of the
superior to rule over the inferior. Human beings are born neither free nor
equal. The natural human condition, is not one of freedom, but of subordination.
Strauss divided the history of political thought into two camps: the ancients
(like Plato) are wise and wily, whereas the moderns (like Locke and other
liberals) are vulgar and foolish.
5) “The Rule Of The Wise” Is Unquestionable, Authoritarian,
Absolute and Covert
Unquestionable: The rule of the wise is not to be questioned:
one is not to raise questions about classic values such as justice or constitutional
Authoritarian and Absolute: The rule of the wise cannot
involve any consideration of the unwise: Leo Strauss said: “It would
be equally absurd to hamper the free flow of wisdom by consideration of the
unwise wishes of the unwise; hence the wise rulers ought not to be responsible
to the unwise subjects." Majority-democracy would result in the subjection
of what is by nature higher to that which is lower. Strauss’ reading
of Plato comes down to this: a majority-democracy is an act against nature
and must be prevented at all costs. Under the Straussian autocratic system,
dissent is not only dangerous, it is seditious.
Covert: The rule of the wise must take place from a shroud
of secrecy; stealthy and furtive operations are facilitated by the overwhelming
stupidity of the gentlemen. The more gullible and unperceptive they are, the
easier it is for the wise to control and manipulate them.
The SPP document, being the manifesto for new governance; and the
SPP Next Steps document and the Cancun Summit Leaders Statement, being the
action plans for that new governance are the singular most important documents
since the signing of the US Constitution.
The Press and Members of Congress have been complicitous in silence
about the stellar nature of these documents, enabling a furtive Coup d'état
to be initiated by the White House neocons. http://tinyurl.com/mrwo8
6) The Three Classes: The Wise-Few, The Vulgar-Many And The Gentlemen
The wise are the lovers of the harsh, unadulterated truth.
They are capable of looking into the abyss without fear and trembling. They
recognize neither God nor moral imperatives. They are devoted above all else
to their own pursuit of the “higher” pleasures, which amount to
consorting with their “puppies” or young initiates.
The vulgar many, are lovers of wealth and pleasure. They
are selfish, slothful, and indolent. They can be inspired to rise above their
brutish existence only by fear of impending death or catastrophe.
The gentlemen, are lovers of honor and glory. They are the
most ingratiating towards the conventions of their society, that is, the illusions
of the cave. They are true believers in God, honor, and moral imperatives.
They are ready and willing to embark on acts of great courage and self-sacrifice
at a moment’s notice.
7) The State Is Omnipotent: It Manifests Militaristic Nationalism.
Strauss believed that human aggression could only be restrained by a powerful,
nationalistic state. He believed that such an omnipotent state can only be
maintained if there is an external threat, "even if one has to be manufactured."
This is why Straussians believe in perpetual war and is another reason why
they have formed a cult around "the church of Lincoln," whom they
hold up as "the greatest statesman in history." Lincoln manufactured
many "threats," including the truly bizarre notion that representative
government would perish from the earth if the Southern states were permitted
to secede peacefully. In reality, peaceful secession would have been a victory
for self-government, keeping in mind that neither Lincoln nor Congress ever
said that they were launching an invasion for any reason having to do with
liberating the slaves.
Strauss taught that war – any war – will restore our “moral
seriousness”, "clear away the fog of unthinking relativism,"
enable us to see evil, restore virtue, heroism, valor, and a sense of sacrifice,
allow us to die for our comrades, country and faith, avoid the "hazards
of civilization," make us more thoughtful, force us to "consider
our loyalties," make men "decisive", and "place greatness
within the reach of ordinary men."
“Because mankind is intrinsically wicked, he has to be governed,"
he once wrote. "Such governance can only be established, however, when
men are united – and they can only be united against other people."
Thus, the only way a political order can be stable and not deteriorate in
hedonistic pleasure is if it is united by an external threat. Wealth, freedom,
and prosperity make people soft, pampered, and depraved. War is an antidote
to moral decadence and depravity. Thus war is held to be redemptive.
8) Maintain A Culture Of Lying And Carry On A Perpetual Confusion Campaign
Maintain a culture of lying through a compliant media and professional spokes-liars,
and carry on a perpetual campaign to confuse the public and keep it ignorant
of the elites political designs. The result of this is that Elite operate
from a shroud of secrecy; thus their reasonings and logic is nontransparent.
And it does not take much intelligence for them to surmise that they are
in a situation of great danger, especially in a world devoted to the modern
ideas of equal rights and freedoms. Now more than ever, the wise few must
proceed cautiously and with circumspection. So, they come to the conclusion
that they have a moral justification to lie in order to avoid persecution.
Yes Strauss goes so far as to say that dissembling and deception – in
effect, a culture of lying – is the peculiar justice of the wise.
9) The Many Are Told What They Need To Know And No More.
Deception is carried on continually. Lies are to be both aggressive and
perpetual. While the elite few are capable of absorbing the absence of any
moral truth, the many could not cope; if exposed to anything other than the
maintained reality, they would quickly fall into nihilism or anarchy.
10) Lies Are Held To Be Nobel: Develop, Maintain And Present Noble
Strauss believed in the concept of “noble lies”: the conviction
that lies, far from being simply a regrettable necessity of political life,
are instead virtuous and noble instruments of wise policy to keep the many
from the dangers of liberalism and democracy.
Plato himself advised his nobles, men with golden souls, to tell noble lies,
that is, political fables, much like the specter of Saddam Hussein with a
nuclear bomb: to rally the people, to keep the other levels of human society
(silver, iron, brass) in their proper places, loyal to the state and willing
to do its bidding
Strauss defined the modern method of noble lies in the use of esoteric messages
within an exoteric text, telling the truth to the wise while at the same time
conveying something quite different to the many; thus he advocated an Orwellian
method of communication.

"framework"; one must assume the "framework" is Doublethink
the Executive Branch of tyrannical state corporate rule.
The Forthcoming Executive Branch is complimented by NORTHCOM, the
Military Law Enforcement Branch http://tinyurl.com/hmfhj,
and the NAFTA Tribunal, the Commerce Judiciary http://tinyurl.com/myecx
11) Dissemble Democracy
Maintain true democracy that is a leadership-democracy for the Few while
at the same time feign majority-democracy to the Many. Relate the principle
of true democracy to the elite: the strong must rule the weak. While at the
same time dissemble http://tinyurl.com/rpyod
mythical democracy to the populace: the rule of the majority.
Strauss had no objections to democracy as long as a wise elite, inspired
by the profound truths of the ancients. Leaders are to wrap speeches with
the American flag giving the appearance of appearance of legitimacy in dissimulation
The SPP dissimulates the words democracy and democratic; the traditional
meaning of the word democracy means people vote on rulers who act in the peoples
interest; the new meaning of the word democracy means stakeholders meet and
make decisions that they claim to be in the be in the interests of the people.
The SPP reveals the new democratic process at work: Stakeholders
by agreement they produced joint documents which call for democratic
institutions consisting of summits http://tinyurl.com/fzu2x
and working groups http://tinyurl.com/n9q8c
which in turn produce frameworks and public private partnerships
These replace sovereign nations, constitutional law and historical
law. New constructs such as The Trilateral Regulatory Cooperation Framework
serve as the basis for law in the New Union.
12) Nature Abhors A Contract.
The Funding Founders were concerned with inalienable natural rights; after
much debate in their convention, they wrote a contract – the U.S. Constitution.
The Straussians hold that contracts, being the artifacts of men, violate natural
The fact that George Bush has not submitted the Security And Prosperity
Partnership document to Congress to Congress for review as required by the
Constitution reflects that he holds the Constitution simply to be a relic
of a bygone era – an artifact which does not bear upon his decision
making process or actions http://tinyurl.com/9d8fw
IV. Once the North American Union is installed by military force,
there will no longer be life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness; the only
thing there will be is tyranny – the rule from above called for by Leo
In the Straussian view, licentious doctrines and philosophies have plagued
the Many; these include: individualism, relativism, pluralism and constitutionalism.
Once the North American Union is installed, then ennoblement begins. If the
Few were to give the Many, such things as freedom, happiness, and prosperity,
in Strauss's estimation, this would turn them into animals. The goal of the
wise is to ennoble the vulgar. But what could possibly ennoble the vulgar? Only
