The list author says: "NOTE: I have another list entitled "Cornerstone Reading for Constitutional Patriots (action plan)" on how to prepare for all this.
I created this list since more and more people are asking me about the topic as I have casually brought it up to acquaintances over the years. Now with the world/financial economy, fiat money and fractional reserve banking system falling apart, I am getting more questions than ever.
I've been reading up on the history, geopolitics, macro-economics, law and personal liberty for over 5 years now and have read many books on the subject. I consider myself a patriot and hope others can save valuable time by choosing books on this list as I feel they are best to get started with in the limited time available to more readers."
"Makes you wish you were watching science fiction, but after years of research myself, everything can be backed up with documentation. The endgame: forced population extermination via a one world collectivist government. Anther big puzzle piece making the big picture and the elite's (& governments) actions become more understandable as they are not some random happenstance! Free on Youtube."
"This is THE definitive research book on the Fed - who, when, why, how. A HUGE book, but a good read - good pictures of the elite bankers and their scheme. G. Edward Griffin if one of my favorite speakers & researchers - check other items not available through Amazon at http://www.realityzone.com/perfecttax.html and his call to action website http://www.freedom-force.org/."
"Boston T. Party deflates the wet dreams of the Parchment Worshipers. The Constitution actually went through numerous re-writings so as to pave the way for later interpretations that would grant ultimate power to a Central Machine. The Articles of Confederation should have been left to stand. Shows Hamilton's designs of an all powerful, monarchial central government to submerge the states."
"I first heard Matt Savinar on Coast to Coast AM radio - a great interview and he's very articulate. Covers all the issues involved with peak oil politics, the economy, money system, why alternatives will not work - even a "free energy" discovery cannot save our monetary based on cheap, abundant petroleum. :("
"Probably THE major group (with high profile/public members) that sets world policy. A who's who of elite - bankers, royal families, ultra-rich, media moguls, politicians, etc. Oh, they don't set world policy? Whenever meeting notes are linked, they read like a playbook for the foreseeable future. Presidents come and go, the elite control which puppet comes to power."
"Easy read! Great (and fairly small) starter book for people of all ages on the never-ending Middle East wars; how/when they started a thousands years ago and why they are not ending during our lifetimes. An eye opener for me. The whole "Uncle Eric" book series or outstanding."
"Why are drugs are illegal? The govt hates competition! Shows how the CIA is the heart of an enormous drug and weapons smuggling operation. Heroin at record levels in Afghanistan after our "occupation"? CIA planes crash with tons of cocaine on board (http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=cia+drug+plane+crash&btnG=Search)? I guess it's all coincidence - better run out and buy a lottery ticket!"
"Great documentary on how our money system was taken over by international bankers. A video is worth a thousand words, so perhaps watch this to get started. It can often be found on Youtube to watch for free."
"Russo has done a good introduction to some of the ills that are facing this nation and the world. He has appropriately singled out the Federal Reserve as public enemy number one. The vast majority of people do not understand how our monetary & tax systems and the Federal Reserve (that is fractional reserve banking), operate. It is truly the story of "The Emperor Has No Clothes"."
"Explains a concept to those who can see past the rose-colored spin, hype, and disinformation poured out by the media conglomerates (most of which are owned by the very same families and corporations who supported the Nazis before World War II!). National Socialism never died - but most people cannot understand the links between fascism and corporate power, the military, and our elected leaders."
"An alert the public of the existence & activities of the ELITE, & to encourage active participation by all citizens to stop the takeover of the US, & the rest of the world by the Elite in their efforts to form their Global Union. Written by an ex-intelligence officer based on years of research. An eye-opener to the extent of penetration these groups have in our government & economy."
"The single most important contribution this book makes, at least for me, is in its discussion of the manner in which tax-exempt foundations are used to conceal and protect wealth from taxes, and to reward corrupt politicians who "went along." One of the best books for understanding world events. Essential Pre-Cursor to Quigley's "Tragedy & Hope"."
"Butler's frank speech describing his role as a soldier as nothing more than serving as a puppet for big-business interests. Includes two never-before-published anti-interventionist essays by General Butler. The introduction discusses why General Butler went against the corporate war machine and how he exposed a fascist coup d'etat plot against President FDR. Extraordinary argument against war."
"Shows what's gone wrong with America's legal system and economy and how to fix it. Contains lots of helpful hints for improving family relationships and for making families and classrooms run more smoothly. Discusses difference between higher law and man-made law. Introduces the Two Laws: 1) Do all you have agreed to do, and 2) Do not encroach on other persons or their property."
"A retired special forces veteran and freedom fighter, paints a horrfiying, but probable future for the United States as a nation state. Throw in the worldwide financial implosion and you have a possibility. Does a great job of applying why & how other countries erupt into Civil War and how it could happen again here."
"Per "The Reality Zone" I agree with the view presented in this book regarding the myth of man-made global warming. However, I do not agree with the assertion made on page 15 regarding the value of genetically modified foods. I believe that concern over GM foods is well justified."
"Wow - this book is an easy read, yet gets right to the point very succinctly - I love it. I highly recommend you Google search for some of Makow's radio interviews on-line and listen to them. This book really pulls it all together."
