This book is the anniversary edition published ten years after, and to complete a trilogy of titles which began with, Terrible 1313 Revisited in 1963 followed by Blame Metro in 1966 both published by The Caxton Printers, Ltd., Caldwell, Idaho 83605.
The Metrocrats summates Metro governance up to 1973, the administrative dictatorship to totally regiment and control the inhabitants of the United States of America.
When first publicly exposed by this writer in 1959 (American Mercury magazine, January 1959) the domestic source of Metro – “Thirteen- Thirteen” was explained as an address, an idea, and a movement.
Its devotees – Metrocrats – dub it a “complex,” and now call the core quarters at 1313 E. 60th St., Chicago, Illinois 60637, the “1313 Center.” The original name PACH (Public Administration Clearinghouse) is used less frequently now. Hundreds of adjunct organizations cooperate with the political Syndicate 1313. In the 70s, the core address still exists. The idea, Metropolitan Government, has come to term as Metro regional governance, the administrated serfdom for American citizens.
U.S. Senate approval of the United Nations charter paved the way in 1945 Congress enacted the Administrative Procedure Act in 1946 starting the corruption by delegating lawmaking power to the executive sector of government.
On September 24, 1959 a Republican president of the United States signed the law (Public Law 86-380) creating ACIR (Advisory Commission on Intergovernmental Relations) which put the Syndicate 1313 inside the structure of federal government. The original law and its amendment (PL 89-733 in 1966) name the 1313 units which control ACIR. Every Democratic and Republican administration, since, has collaborated in furthering the Metro plan.
Self-styled ACIR-Intergov, 1313’s ACIR, writes and implements the Metro laws, brainwashes Presidents, Congress, and others in its orbit. ACIR is self-government and to force Americans under Metro appointee-rule. 1313’s manager form of city and county government has swarmed into thousands of city halls and county courthouses; the managers themselves added to the updated (June 1972) MetroChart at the front of this book.
The Metro Syndicate 1313 organizations work to bring about the Metro dictatorship through a multiplicity of programs and activities, e.g. planning, zoning, taxing, public welfare, federal-state-local “partnerships,” etc. Revisions of state constitutions and city and county charters, also executive sector reorganizations, mark the Metro attempt to eradicate American self-government and to force Americans under Metro appointee-rule. 1313’s manager form of city and county government has swarmed into thousands of city halls and county courthouses; the managers themselves import Metro programs (e.g. urban renewal, regional councils of government, etc.)
Name changing and cell multiplication take place in 1313. The Council of State Governments moved its headquarters to Lexington (Ky.) and did keep one of its branches at the Chicago-1313 address until late 1973.
Metro-prone state governors, mayors, city and county officials cooperate through the 1313 units assigned to recycle them into Metrocrats.
Tax exempt foundations finance the syndicate. Also, the bureaucracies of federal government pay American tax dollars into a mishmash of Metro-1313 projects. The details follow.
A book twice this size was planned, but under the rule of brevity scores of deserving deeds of resistance by citizens against Metro remain untold in this volume.
