Profile: 27th March 2013. The Fifth BRICS summit and the establishment of a New Development Bank.  27th March 2013, an article by Karen Hudes ( with Jim Fetzer) appeared in Veterans Today:

"The World Bank. Rejecting the rule of law."

Synchronicity? The article included this quote:

“The proverb, ‘What you don’t know can’t hurt you”, originated in 1576 as, ‘So long as I know it not, it hurteth mee not.’ But the opposite is true.  Unpleasant hidden truths do the most harm.  The best way to fight corruption is to expose it.  Think of the World Bank as ENRON.” … Karen Hudes

Since then Karen Hudes has been interviewed by Abby Martin, Greg Hunter and Lars Schall to mention a few. In a year of whistle blowers, she has certainly made her mark! Hopefully in years to come, The World Bank will become an institution of integrity, trust and of benefit to the planet.


How does your world view differ from when you were 21 years old compared to where you are today?


My world view has been remarkably consistent over time.  As far back as I can remember, I have been curious about the world and felt it was my job to find out about it.  When I was 21, I took a trip up a spiral during a very vivid dream and saw heaven and felt the peace and harmony and beauty of creation.  My lifetime experiences have only deepened my wonder at our shared existence and interdependence.


What was the one defining moment that changed your worldview and put you on a path of total commitment to exposing the corrupt systems that have overtaken the Western World?


My worldview has not changed.  Perhaps the best explanation for my resolve to get to the bottom of the corruption was the discipline and reflexes drilled into me by my Hungarian fencing coach, Bela de Csajaghy.  During my senior year as captain of the NYU women's fencing team, I learned to focus during my opponent's attacks, and that you are only as fast as your fastest opponent.  


Of all the many problems that confront society today, what specific area would you identify that needs to be addressed in order to create a better future?


Access to information.  My first year at Yale Law School, I was one of seven students who were privileged to be assigned to Prof. Thomas Emerson for my Freshman seminar.  Prof. Emerson was the leading expert on the First Amendment: "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances."   

The media in the US is owned by the conglomerate referred to as the "super entity" that was identified by Stefania Vitali, James B. Glattfelder, and Stefano Battiston: “The network of global corporate control“, ETH Zurich, published September 2011 available here:   The media is deliberately censoring the news that reaches the American public.  This must end.


What specific area would you identify that people on an individual basis can do in order to create a better future for themselves and their families?


 Form a study group with your neighbors  and learn about how you can pay your bills with sound currency.  You can press for a state bank too


How would you like to see the world in five years time? How do you think the world will be in five years time?


I would like to see a world where the domination and control of the few over the many has ended, along with secret societies such as the Knights of Malta and the Masons.  I expect that there will no longer be any advantage in belonging to these secret societies and that the entire world will have learned of their calumny.


Who do you most admire and why?


I admire my father.  He was the best father anyone could have ever had.  He brought me up to expect the best in people, and to feel that I had something to contribute.
