"Skull and Bones runs the White House, TV news, major newspapers, Yale University, legal drugs, illegal drugs, and much of the prison industrial complex, which is turning into a gulag with 10 million people currently in jail, on probation or awaiting sentencing."
Oh, my God. Now I am starting to understand. This review gave me chills up and down my arms, and now all over my body down to my legs and feet... I think this qualifies as "believing it!"
I guess if one can't buy and sell slaves now, one CAN run the prison system and "buy and sell prisoners" and all that is required to catch them and keep them locked up. Just like the slaves in days of old... I never thought about this before, but "packing them in tightly" into overcrowded jails is not much different than "packing them in tightly" into the slave ships crossing the ocean a few hundred years ago. (from Wikipedia on the Cabot family earning it's fortune.)
What a devastating thought. I could never understand why our country would spend the same money it takes to send a kid to an upper class school by sending him to prison - $25,000 p/yr and up here in NC for a year in jail same as what it costs to send a student to Duke University!
Now I'm getting an inkling. Scary but "knowledge is power" and I am on a real "need to know" basis.
I'll buy it. Thanks to the author of the book, Kris Millegan, and to the author of this review, Steven Hager. Yours, CT
2nd note: The other reviewer made an excellent point about the book not being available via [...] directly. How can this be? Thank God for used books by third parties on Amazon.
I really need to see what this book has to say. I am so distressed over reports of our country's "founding fathers" and richest families great fortunes being made by importing opium and selling slaves and rum. I just can't believe it. How did I study history and never learned this when I was in school?
Stands to reason why our country is so rich, powerful and corrupt, and why the rest of the world calls us "The Barbarians" but can't wait to get here themselves to taste "the spoils of war and riches." Just like the CIA popped Noriega when he no longer wanted to share the spoils of the cocaine drug trade (if I am remembering this right), is this the same thing as "the war on Terror" that is enslaving this country right now?
And this could all be emanating from ONE COLLEGE CLUB that our state senators and presidents come from? What is going on here? How could we all be fooled for so long?
But who cares, as long as we have our TV, video games and iPods, right?
'ENTERTAINMENT' is all that seems to matter anymore. What has happened to us all? Thank God for the few that still speak out about what truly matters. God Save us all.
