uigley was a highly regarded professor of
history who taught a course in Western
Civilization at Georgetown University which
Bill Clinton took in the school year of 1964-65, a
year after the assassination of President
Kennedy. That was about the same time that
Quigley had finished writing his massive tome
on contemporary history, "Tragedy and Hope,"
which was published by Macmillan in 1966.

We probably would not be talking about that
1,300-page book today if it weren't for one
paragraph that appears on page 950. Quigley
wrote:

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. In fact, this
network, which we may identify as
the Round Table Groups, has no
aversion to cooperating with the
Communists, or any other groups,
and frequently does so. I know of
the operations of this network
because I have studied it for twenty
years and was permitted for two
years, in the early 1960's, to examine
its papers and secret records. I have
no aversion to it or to most 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.

What Quigley was alluding to was the secret
plan, concocted by Cecil Rhodes, to achieve
world peace by creating a world government,
controlled by the Anglo-Saxons, powerful
enough to impose its political will on the rest
of mankind. This was to be achieved by
creating a secret society on the order of the
Society of Jesus that would gain control of the
wealth of the world, gain control of the British
and American governments, and recruit its
future leaders through the Rhodes
Scholarships. Rhodes figured that the plan
would take about 200 years to achieve its
ultimate goal.
