Carroll Quigley Channeled by Karl Mollison 23Apr2109
Carroll Quigley November 9, 1910 – January 3, 1977 was an American historian and theorist of the evolution of civilizations. He is noted for his teaching work as a professor at Georgetown University, for his academic publications, and for his research on the Round Table movement.
In 1966, Quigley published a one-volume history of the twentieth century, titled Tragedy and Hope. According to Quigley, the leaders of this group were Cecil Rhodes and Alfred Milner from 1891 until Rhodes’ death in 1902, Milner alone until his own death in 1925, Lionel Curtis from 1925 to 1955, Robert H. (Baron) Brand from 1955 to 1963, and Adam D. Marris from 1963 until the time Quigley
wrote his book.
This organization also functioned through certain loosely affiliated “front groups”, including the Royal Institute of International Affairs, the Institute of Pacific Relations, and the Council on Foreign Relations.
In addition, other secret societies are briefly discussed in Tragedy and Hope, including a consortium of the leaders of the central banks of several countries, who formed the Bank for International Settlements.

Tragedy and Hope had indeed secured for its author a lasting reputation — well outside the classroom, far beyond the Beltway. Twenty years after the author’s death, it remains a classic text in the literature of conspiracy theory. One way to evaluate this chain of events as a gross misinterpretation of Quigley’s thinking: A few pages of Tragedy and Hope were manhandled by people whose pretzel-logic theories bore no resemblance to the professor’s sober prose and erudite theories.
But deep in Tragedy and Hope, near the bottom of page 949, Quigley mentions a “radical Right fairy tale” about” a well-organized plot by extreme Left-wing elements, operating from the White House itself and controlling all the chief avenues of publicity in the United States, to destroy the American
way of life.” With a turn of the page, Quigley makes a revelation: “This myth,” he notes, “like all fables, does in fact have a modicum of truth.”
Many copies of Tragedy and Hope will open to this very spot — at the top of page 950, where Carroll Quigley proves…everything.
“There does exist, and has existed for a generation, an international Anglophile network which operates, to some extent, in the way the Radical right believes the Communists act,” Quigley writes. “In fact, this network, which we may identify as the Round Table Groups, has no aversion to cooperating with the Communists, or any other group, and frequently does so. I know of the operation of this network because I have studied it for 20 years and was permitted for two years, in the early 1960s, to examine its papers and secret records. I have no aversion to it or to most of its aims and have,
for much of my life, been close to it and to many of its instruments. I have objected, both in the past and recently, to a few of its policies, but in general my chief difference of opinion is that it wishes to remain unknown, and I believe its role in history is significant enough to be known.”
