(Infowars) – Webster Tarpley, author, journalist, lecturer, and critic of US foreign and domestic policy, appeared on the Alex Jones radio show today and discussed the wedge issues currently exploited in the “corporate media” to divide the American people in order for the Global Power Structure to maintain control. The concept of “divide and rule” as a means to control the people is not a new idea.
According to Wikipedia, “divide and rule (derived from Latin divide et impera) (also known as divide and conquer) is a combination of political, military and economic strategy of gaining and maintaining power by breaking up larger concentrations of power into chunks that individually have less power than the one implementing the strategy. In reality, it often refers to a strategy where small power groups are prevented from linking up and becoming more powerful, since it is difficult to break up existing power structures”. It is said that the British used the strategy to gain control of the large territory of India by keeping its people divided along lines of religion, language, or caste, taking control of petty princely states in India piecemeal.
