Many of us are familiar with U.S. president Dwight D. Eisenhower's farewell speech to the nation on January 17, 1961, in which he warned the American public to "guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence" of the "military-industrial complex." A less known quote from the same speech sets the tone for the Collins brothers' incredibly erudite tome: "... we must also be alert to the equal and opposite danger that public policy could itself become the captive of a scientific-technological elite."

This book discloses exactly who these technological elite (technocrats) are; that they've been working behind the scenes for centuries, and public policy has indeed become its captive. Its aspiration has always been the implementation of a sociopolitical, technocratic utopian world order.

The breadth and scope of Philip and Paul Collins' massive study is nothing short of dazzling. "The Ascendancy of the Scientific Dictatorship" is a meticulous examination of a shared ideological construct centuries in the making. This elite circle of technocrats hasn't simply carried forth a unified grand master plan, however; the Collins brothers stress the fact that what we are dealing with is a "conspiracy of ideas," whose adherents have developed into a powerful "epistemological cartel."

Reading "The Ascendancy of the Scientific Dictatorship" is to embark on an intellectual journey of the highest order. The Collins brothers effortlessly discuss a wide range of philosophical concepts, all of which are integral to understanding the thinking and development of those behind the formation of a would-be technocracy. There simply isn't any other book that is even in the same league.

Other reviewers covered the gist of the book, but there are a few things that needed pointing out. The book is rather amatureishly put together and edited, which is confusing since it is a "revised" edition. For example:

1. No Table of Contents
2. No Index-a huge issue that makes it an exercise in tedium to look stuff up
3. Despite having a dedications page, there is no one on it
4. A division into 3 "chapters" of 100+ pages
5. The subdivisions within the chapters are haphazard and extremely few and far between
6. The book self-references its subdivisions in the text, but doesn't give page numbers
7. He uses SPLC (Southern Poverty Law Center) as a source several times, despite their reputation for tabloid-style reporting and dishonesty

In addition to the above lacunae, the final chapter of the work leaves much to be desired, as its tone is that of a series of miniature book reports on diverse subjects, a lot of which comes off as half-baked or just plain silly(e.g. Arnold Schwarzenagger as a candidate for the head of a white supremacist coup in California). Many of the topics in the final chapter weren't developed or concluded well, instead, the authors simply jumped to a new topic without even trying to make a logical progression. In one instance, they bring up Nominalism, but drop it after a page or two, despite its enormous impact, something that's especially odd considering that on the back cover it claims that one of the book's main topics is "Nominalism and radical empiricism as instruments of epistemological manipulation" Finally, while I didn't mind their religious inclusions, it would have been nice if they outlined their own religious position at the start, perhaps in an introduction.

This is an interesting topic, and certainly has some truth to it. There's a strong enough argument here to bear reading, and even if you don't agree with the conclusion, it's important to know this view is increasing even in the eyes of scientists, and it is not without some merit.

Certainly an interesting read, and the argument is laid out logically. With an open mind, many readers will be challenged.

This book is essential for those who want to understand the ideological roots of the globalists trying to bring about the New World Order. This book is well researched and filled with footnotes. The bibliography is enough of a reason to purchase this book.

As a PhD geneticist and practicing scientist who is all to familiar with the wide-spread dogma and fraud of darwinian evolution, it is refreshing to finally read a book that unequivocally proves that the real roots of the so-called darwinian science are not scientific at all. Instead, as the book shows, Darwin's ideas were an amalgamation of occult doctrines derived from the Masonic atmosphere and heritage which pervaded his life and associations. Specifically, the doctrine of "becoming" or apotheosis which became cloaked within darwinian pseudo-science and was relentlessly promoted by the Free Masons and their societal off-shoots (Royal Society, Lunar Society, etc.). The authors also describe how the dogma is utilized as part of the sociology and the control grid by the globalist elites exercise their control agenda of economic enslavement, eugenics (population reduction), tampering with biogenics, and other forms of Luciferean rebellion against God, the Creator of the Universe. This is the one book that every Christian needs to round out his library on the encircling global police state and get the full picture, particularly those with an interest in science. Even if you are not a Christian, this book will open your eyes to the true roots of Darwinism and it's societal control applications for evil and not good. The book is at a somewhat high intellectual level so be prepared for a scholarly and well-researched effort. As a result, it may take some time and patience to get through it, but it is well worth the effort. This is also a great resource book to keep on hand.
