Sutton's main hobby was technology, in fact in his later life when he was in seclusion due to his work that is what he did. Through his inaugural work Sutton came to the understanding that had it not been for the US, both Gov. and Private sector, that the Soviet Union would have never existed without the aid and resources of the US, namely money and technology. This is not what he thought prior, not what he wished, not the world he wanted to live in. Frankly he couldn't understand it but the material led him and he followed it. Because of this work Sutton would part ways with the Hoover Institute insisting on publishing the third volume of the work, which pointed to a conspiracy in America of building up it's own biggest threat of the 20th century. Easy to see how this pill was not something that was swallowed easily at this time, but Sutton drank it down. He then went on to privately publish all the rest of his works, about 20-22 more works. One of those works happened to be this book right here.
How this book came about is an interesting story in it's own right, Sutton was contacted by Charlotte Thompsen Iserbyte (now a well known author and critic of the educational system) and asked if he would be interested in her father's Skull & Bones membership list, this doesn't happen. Iserbyte's father was a member of the Order and members get an updated list, bound in leather, sent to them annually which carries the complete history of membership updated to the most recent class of that year. Iserbyte's father was one of the Knight's of Eugolia, who didn't take the vision of the fraternal order to seriously. Unfortunately for us many of them do as Sutton would soon come to find out through his research and resulting book.
What follows is a careful examination of the intricacies, ideals, direction, implementation, and subverion of society by the elitist eastern liberal establishment. The Russell Trust (the Order's incorporated name) was established in 1832 by William Huntington Russel (opium smuggler for East India Co.) and Alphonso Taft (father of the only man to be both Pres. and Chief Justice). While many poo poo the organization as a harmless boys club I assure you after reading this you will understand that decisions in this country aren't made unless they are made by this fraternal organization and it's sister organization's.
Sutton goes through the various families, members, friends, and connections that the Order consists of and how it uses family power, wealth and those connections to strive for a societal agenda. To achieve this agenda the members of the order take on a certain type of career after they leave which include one of five categories; Education, Tax Exempt foundations, Banking and Finance, Government, Intelligence. Through these avenues they are able to help, promote, initiate, and continue each other and the works and agenda of the Order.
Sutton carefully and masterfully details the genesis of our educational system and where it comes from that you certainly won't find on a wikipedia page. I started highlighting parts and pages in the book, but I had to stop because it seems like every page is jam packed with stunning information. Because of this and if you are a populist you will find the book almost too much to bear. But after you are finished you will have a complete understanding of why we are where we are. You will understand why we go to war, who are enemies are and where they come from, why we think the way we do, why are schools are overwhelmingly progressive and athiestic, etc... You will also see the treason committed on a nation by it's most respected families, who do not have the typical bleeding heart associated with most liberals. One of the funnier parts of the book is when Sutton is speaking about the Rockefeller family and it's ties with the Order. No direct Rockefeller descendant had ever been a member unless they were married into the Order by an existing family bloodline. Basically they were used for their wealth and the Rockefeller's used the Order because of their place in high society. You see John D. the family patriach worked and made his money and pulled himself up by his boot straps. He is a true American Dream, a dream that turned into a nightmare no less, but to the old line, old money, eastern liberal establishment who came over with the Pilgrims and founded the colonies they were hicks. Sutton shows this in one of the few light-hearted moments of the book and this fits well with the stereo-typical view that in high-society there is a pecking order just like everywhere else. The Rockefeller name and wealth has been used by the Order so much that many today see them as the rulers of the world and the one's who dictate every decision made. They are NWO caricature, along with the Rothchild's and I'm sure that's fine by the Order as someone is needed for scapegoating.
You really can't understand the direction of this country and it's history at all if you haven't read this book and/or you don't understand Skull & Bones. This will be one of the most valuable reads in your life and I understand the weight of that statement. However if you are confused about the direction and the reasons of the world and they don't make sense to you, read this and they will become crystal clear. If you are into NWO, secret society research, read this to clarify your thinking you will not regret it.
