3.0 out of 5 stars Food For Thought--Whether or Not One Agrees With Conspiracy Theories
I first read this book soon after it came out, when I was in high school. I recall how it made me think about many things in unconventional ways. For example, Allen moved beyond what he called the "Gus Hall level of Communism" and challenged his readers to see Communism as merely one tool of a much wider conspiracy to rule the world. And, whether or not one accepts the...

5.0 out of 5 stars Frightening.,
It has been my experience for the past half-decade or so that when I want to read good horror, I don't go to the horror section of the bookstore. I go to the non-fiction section. There is a short but powerful list of nonfiction books that are guaranteed to put a good scare into you, and I seem to have stumbled across the majority of them. Stanton Peele's The Diseasing of America. Robert Weinberg's One Renegade Cell. Glenn Gaesser's Big Fat Lies. Add to the list Allen and Abraham's None Dare Call It Conspiracy.
Allen and Abraham here attempt to make the case that the events of recent world history, from the Bolshevik Revolution forward, have been brought into being and controlled by a relatively small group of insiders, mostly international banking magnates and (later on) the Council on Foreign Relations. While it's certainly conspiracy theory, Allen and Abraham have done a fine job of backing up their assertions with a huge amount of primary and secondary source material (just looking up the titles in the bibliography took me the better part of two hours). Whether you're a fan of conspiracy theory or not, the facts presented, and the conclusions drawn, in this book, are thought-provoking and outrageous.
I defy any reader of this slim volume, conservative, liberal, neocon, free-thinker, what have you-- not to be incensed by it. Even if you only believe a fraction of what Allen and Abraham put forth in this book, it cannot but make you want to do something to stem the tide. And there is certainly a tide; the book, originally written during the Nixon administration, can be looked at now with three decades of hindsight. There's no denying that much of what Allen and Abraham forecast for America's future has either come to pass or is in front of the Cabinet as we speak. (Michael Badnarik dissects the final chapter of this book, and points out a number of ways these predictions have already happened, in his book odd to Be King). Whether you believe that there really is a conspiracy afoot (and, really, "follow the money" does work here) or whether you believe it's all the result of incompetence, stupidity, and lack of communication, there's no denying it's happening. All you have to do is step outside and look around.
Terrifying. A must-read. Do whatever you need to do to hunt a copy down. The first book guaranteed to make my Best Reads of 2005 list. **** ˝

5.0 out of 5 stars A GOOD OVERVIEW OF HOW GOV'T AND NEWS ARE OFTEN MANIPULATED,
There are other books which go into more detail on these issues. One good one is Anthony Sutton's book about Wall Street and the Bolshevik Revolution. There are many others.
After reading this book, it's easy to see why it is politically incorrect to use the "C" word (ie. conspiracy).
This book is easy to read and is very interesting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exposes the Globalist Beast!,
You also get insight into the Federal Reserve, the CFR, the Bilderberger group and who instigated their founding and who controls them, the Rockefellers, the so called "philanthropic" foundations controlled by the global elites, the European banking syndicate, the making of puppet Presidents and other political figures, the ferminting of scam wars and lots more.
I don't agree with all of Allens conclusions or his solutions to defeating this globalist beast but None Dare Call it Conspiracy is a must read because it contains much vital information on deciphering the new world order conspiracy. I highly recomend The Rockefeller File by Allen also.

3.0 out of 5 stars Food For Thought--Whether or Not One Agrees With Conspiracy Theories,
Without this book, who would have heard of the Bilderberg movement? And, even if they are not a secret, one-world movement, one still wonders why such powerful people meet regularly in secrecy. If the Bilderbergers are really benign, as they claim, it is still worthwhile for the public to monitor them in order to see to it that they stay that way.
Allen has been accused of anti-Semitism. Yet those who have actually read this book realize that Allen specifically and forcefully repudiates the premise that the conspiracy was or is predominantly Jewish.
In addition, Allen has been accused of numerous inaccuracies in his book. To add another possible one: Allen claims that Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands was a member of the Nazi SS, where he "had a lot of fun". While Bernhard was indeed at least a nominal member of the SS, where is the evidence that Bernhard himself was involved in Nazi atrocities?
The lasting value of this book, in my opinion, is its focus on how the government (with or without a conspiracy) is restricting American freedoms. The ability of the US government to print worthless paper money is one thing to consider. The decades-old drive towards gun control is another obvious example. So is the relentless erosion of privacy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wake Up!,
Have you ever heard of an organization called the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR)? If you look into it, you will discover that ever since the 1960's, every Presidential administration- Democrat or Republican- has had a large percentage of CFR members on their staff. What does this signify? Considering the power they wield, why isn't more attention paid by our "watchdog" media?
Did you ever wonder why Democrats and Republicans bicker endlessly, but once they are elected to office, they basically follow the same policies? When a politician comes along who differs with the narrow Right-Left monolith, (s)he is ridiculed or ignored. (e.g. Ron Paul, Tammy Duckworth, Dennis Kucinich).
Did you know that the Russian Revolution was primarily funded by Western bankers? On the face of it, that is absurd, since Communists claim they would take the assets of the wealthy, and redistribute them to the poor! What could possibly explain such behavior?
Were you aware that while millions of people lost their fortunes in the stock market crash of 1929, a small clique of the very wealthiest families in this country (Rockefellers, Morgans, Melons, Loebs, and Harrimans) were safely out of the markets when the crash hit? What did they know that the rest did not?
I could go on all day. There are literally thousands of instances I could point out which show clearly that the worlds of politics and finance do not operate as they claim to. Their driving principles have been obscured from the public. This book explores the history, philosophy, and function of the shadowy, secretive, insular, and unaccountable institutions which really run the world: the Federal Reserve System, the Bank of England, the CFR, and their international counterparts in the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, the United Nations, the World Trade Organization, and countless others. The ultimate goal of all these groups is to centralize wealth and power into the hands of a very small number of American and British banking elites. The book elucidates how worldwide socialist movements over the past 100 years were intentionally created or supported by this Western banking cartel, for the purpose of establishing a world political-financial system. The European Union, NAFTA, CAFTA, the African Union, and the widely discussed (sometimes denied) North American Union are all manifestations of this concerted effort. Gary Allen's insightful narrative describes many (not all) of the milestones this effort has passed over the past century, including the the secretive drafting of the 1913 Federal Reserve Act, passage of the graduated federal income tax, establishment of tax-free "charitable" foundations (by the Rockefeller, Carnegie, and Ford families), and the 1907 stock market crash- which was planned and executed by (Rothschild collaborator) J.P. Morgan.
In this age of the Trans-Texas Corridor, discussions about replacing the US dollar with a multinational "Amero", and $750 billion taxpayer bailouts of private Wall Street banks, it is very late in the game. President George H.W. Bush spoke of an imminent "new world order" in a speech in 1991. That phrase has been discussed for decades in private think tanks. However it has been packaged to us (usually as a United Nations-led "partnership for peace" or a "brotherhood of nations"), this new order has at its heart a monopoly on the creation of currency in the hands of a small banking cabal. As has been shown in nation after nation, if this is allowed to happen, monopolies in manufacturing, communication, transportation, and all other significant economic activities will follow, and that is itself just a transitional stage on the way to estabilshment of a world totalitarian dictatorship.
The book is a short 138 pages, but if you read it, you will never see the nightly news in the same light again

5.0 out of 5 stars It's not paranoia if they really are conspiring to seize YOUR bank,
With most of the protagonists of NDCIC long dead, the Bush regime has consciously adopted policies which were described in detail in this book thirty-six years ago. The "election" of 2004, in which the voters were offered a choice between a Skull & Bones cultist from Yale and a different Skull & Bones cultist from Yale makes the rigged elections Allen and Abraham describe seem like Gilbert and Sullivan operettas by comparison. There was literally NO difference between the policies of the Republican Party candidate and the Democratic Party candidate -- if one judges John Kerry by his actual Senate voting record instead of the crap he spouted once he garnered more than five percent in a primary; prior to that he had voted for EVERY power-grabbing, Constitution-shredding outrage proposed by the Bush gang, including the illegal war against Iraq, the war crimes committed there, and the torture used by the jack-booted thugs of the Bush regime on every continent (except Antarctica -- maybe).
Still and all, while "None Dare Call It Conspiracy" presented the playbook, it seemed to have failed entirely when it came to predicting the teams which would make it to the finals. In fact, in the spring and summer of 2008 I even wondered what had become of the Rockefellers and some of the other "Insiders" described in NDCIC. Then came September 2008 and the cockroaches came crawling out of the woodwork, allowing us to see that -- mirabile dictu! -- while the teams were different, many of the players were the same as those denounced in "None Dare Call It Conspiracy!"
Lehman Brothers, which crops up again and again in NDCIC as one of the main tools of the "Insiders," was allowed to crash and burn, which would have been astonishing except that its collapse was used as the justification for the most crushing act of repression ever to have been inflicted upon the American people. The largest bank failure in American history (which is to say, in WORLD history) took place in the dead of night when Washington Mutual was seized and sold off to JP Morgan Chase without so much as hint that the stockholders had any say in the matter. JP Morgan Chase is the unholy union of two "Insider" banks notorious from NDCIC: JP Morgan and the Chase Manhattan Bank, which was chaired by David Rockefeller in the 1970s. Even as those who make their living "debunking" conspiracy theories were starting to cite the collapse of Lehman Brothers as "proof" that there is NO conspiracy between the American government and a few Wall Street bankers, the great-grandchildren of the robber barons of the 19th century -- those whom Allen and Abraham describe as the founders of the unspoken "conspiracy" -- had a bank with MORE THAN THREE HUNDRED BILLION DOLLARS IN ASSETS handed to them for less than $2 billion! At that price Bill Gates could have bought WaMu with his "walking around money" ... but the Bush regime didn't offer it to the world's most successful entrepreneur. Millions of Americans awoke just a few days ago to discover that their mortgages were now owned by the children (literal or figurative) of JP Morgan and John D. Rockefeller. But beyond those raw assets, Washington Mutual had something else: huge stock holdings in the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco and other Federal Reserve Banks. (The Federal Reserve Banks are NOT an arm of the United States government; they are owned by the banks in their regions. By acquiring WaMu the Morgan-Chase conglomerate effectively acquired control of the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco, a lovely companion piece to the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, which it has controlled for decades. The Bushies have literally given JP Morgan Chase a license to print money.) By using Lehman Brothers as a sacrificial pawn, the "Insiders" were able to win the game, and the "revolution from above" which is discussed at the very beginning of "None Dare Call It Conspiracy" is now a fait accompli.
While you let that last paragraph sink in, consider this, too: the Bush regime has recreated many of the very same trusts and monopolies which Progressives and free market proponents had spent decades breaking up. AT&T, the creation of J. P. Morgan the banker, has been re-inflicted upon the American people by the Bushiecrats, and American telecommunications companies are being snatched up one by one into its vice-like grip. Standard Oil, broken up a century ago, is essentially back in business now that Exxon has been permitted by the Bushiecrats to snap up piece after piece of the old Rockefeller empire. Not only do the grandchildren and great-grandchildren of the robber barons and the "Insiders" have the American economy in a stranglehold once again, they are actually recreating the very companies which a hundred years of Americans justifiably hated and feared!
It was all too easy to dismiss "None Dare Call It Conspiracy" as bunk for many years. The events of September 2008 have revealed it as prophetic. Logically flawed in many places, positively ludicrous in others, but, on the whole, horrifyingly prophetic. Read it while you can.

5.0 out of 5 stars None dare take it seriously,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I read this first as a teenager. Futher reading on the various connections made, studying world history, and keeping up with world events has made me realize that it was one of the most important things I've ever read.
A lot written on the subject of conspiracy is hysterical misinformation. This book is the antithesis of that. It is simple, serious, and very calmly put forth.
When you read about the Tower of Babel, Alexander the Great, and Napoleon, you clearly see that people don't change; nothing has changed, only the cast of characters.
As I write this, we are one step closer to the objective. As you read this, we'll be closer than that. Everyone chooses what to believe instead of believing what's always been true.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beware of "Socialism"!,
None Dare Call It Conspiracy was published in 1972. That the book was published at all is in itself quite surprising given Allen's theses. He believed then that the world was subject to a Communist/ Socialist conspiracy and rather surprisingly cites Nixon himself as an agent of this conspiracy. In Allen's view the protestors on the street were mere dupes, controlled by a ruling elite of "insiders" who were steadily moving politics to the left in order to consolidate their global ambitions. In my view Allen concentrates too much of his fire on "Socialism"; the "insiders" don't really care what the name of their system is as long as they are given free rein to exploit the masses and stifle awareness of political processes. Allen was one of the first to uncover the machinations of the Council on Foreign Relations a branch of the British Royal Institute of International Affairs which itself is a front for The Round Table Group, a New World Order group built on the fortune of Cecil Rhodes.
Allen details the way in which this hidden ruling elite buy off radicals and revolutionary governments bending them to their will. He gives an account of how in 1964, David Rockefeller "sacked" Nikita Krushchev. Hardly anything in the USSR was produced without US. patents and machinery. The USSR was sold American arms and components to kill US soldiers in Vietnam.

5.0 out of 5 stars In 1980 I thought this could not really happen - not now,
This review is from: None Dare Call It Conspiracy (Paperback)When I first read this book in about 1980 it totally blew my mind away! I was a 'the government will take care of its people' kind of person. The book was given to me by my brother who found it on the seat of a plane. In that first issue I believe that it was very cheap (1.00) and people were urged to give them away. My first instinct was 'we have to do something about this'. My family and friends thought I was crazy to believe the ideas put forth in this book. So I put it on the back burner "They wouldn't let this happen!"
The book was actually unavailable for purchase for many years. But the ideas put forth in the book about how the country was being manipulated by powerful interests began to materialize in our everyday lives. Gary Allen certainly did not get the recognition that he deserved for writing this timely, informative book.
Now it is back in publication. I imagine it's because the plan has gone far enough that it can't be stopped. Now it's easy to look back and say if only we'd realized that it was up to the people, not the government to take care of us. But at that time there was no internet. The few of us who actually questioned were considered 'kooks'. The idea of keeping them separated, divided, and marginalized worked very well.

5.0 out of 5 stars If You Cherish Freedom and Are Willing to Protect It, Read This Book,
Many Americans have been very cleverly and deliberately misled by the mass electronic and print media into believing that no such conspiracy exists. Media moguls accomplish this by employing shrewd tactics devised more than a half-century ago by the CIA; ridicule the messenger-not the message. They shy away from dealing with the message because that draws them inescapably and most uncomfortably close to the truth. They won't risk that.
Many Americans fail to realize that fact and fail to realize that the mass media is owned and controlled by the conspirators. Some call them "the elite" or "the power elite" or "the high cabal" or other such names that tend to make them seem far more respectable than they really are. The fact is they are greedy, self-serving criminals who have seized enormous, tight-fisted control over our government at federal, state, and local levels while far too many among us have been asleep at the polls. To avoid profanity, which certainly seems appropriate in their case, I simply call them "the conspirators."
Since the mass media has lulled a great many among us into a false sense of security, these monsters have actually gotten away with stealing your vote. If you doubt that, I urge you to read the Collier brothers "Votescam."
Worse still, the conspirators have shredded most of the Bill of Rights with the absurd acts that they rushed through Congress in the aftermath of 9/11, a vicious attack on Americans executed by the conspirators-not a bunch of Arab idiots with box-cutters. The main attacks on the Bill of Rights came in the form of the Patriot Acts I & II, the Homeland Security Act and the all-to-obviously Nazi-inspired "Model State" Emergency Health Powers Act. Adolf Hitler would absolutely love that one!
I could go on at great length about the extent to which these acts and others, like the War Powers Act, have gone to wipe out your rights under the Constitution and its Amendments. Yet, I believe Michael C. Ruppert has already done an outstanding job of that. So, I strongly encourage reading his book "Crossing the Rubicon: The Decline of the American Empire at the End of the Age of Oil" [...].
But whatever you do, read "None Dare Call It Conspiracy" before it's too late. You'll be sorry if you don't.
