There are two ways of looking at the world. You can take the morning paper at face value and believe the world oscillates between the dumb-show of "left-wing" and "right-wing". Or you can begin to question this national hypnosis. A guidebook to alternative views of contemporary events and world history, Secret and Suppressed confronts the reader with disquieting revelations on mind control, secret societies, media disinformation, cults, and elite cabals. The hard evidence supplied by many of these articles is startling. Other entries veer into the twilight realm of paranoia, speculation, and horror. If you believe that ignorance is bliss then Secret and Suppressed is sure to make you very unhappy.

I give this four stars due to gems like James Shelby Downard's ridiculous essay on sorcery and the JFK assassination (also titled "King Kill 33" in other publications), the articles on Jim Jones cult and Waco, as well as the writings on Silent Weapons and Vatican intrigue among others. There is some chaff here, but of course one man's chaff could be another's wheat on occasion. While this book was published in 1993, it wouldn't be until several years later that a large budget documentary was produced that reinforced some of the facts in the "Black Hole in Guyana" article. That picture was broadcast on HBO some years ago. Perhaps there will be a similar documentary on the Waco tragedy in the near future. Time will tell.
Out-of-print, but recommended.
Some of the articles are extremely well researched and beyond dispute and in the vein of the Project Censored book series, like one proving that the Jonestown Massacre was NOT a mass suicide but a mass murder (drinking poison Kool-Aid does not leave bullet holes in one's back). There are more questionable but still interesting articles, e.g. one on how Aids was invented by the government to eliminate blacks and gays, but with some clearly factual background. A, what I assume, is a brilliant social satire written from the point of view of "The Conspiracy" called "Quiet Weapons for Secret Wars" which one realizes, after reading for a while, is about how the monetary system ITSELF(vs. Capitalism, etc.) may be seen as a tool of social control. There are also paranoid rants of varying worth, but the most indisputely brilliant of them being by Shelby Downard which may be easy to dismiss on an intellectual level, but is very effective on an emotional level.
Also included is a brilliant essay "Is Paranoia a Form of Awareness?" written by the only person to have published a book about Lee Harvey Oswald BEFORE the Kennedy Assasination (about their life in the Marines and as guinea pigs for MK-Ultra) that notes that the so-called average person is usually in a state of denial and also notes his own experiences with the Garrison investigation (depicted in the movie JFK).
And don't place any importance into the fact that there is a swastika on the cover. There is also a cross, a crescent, and other symbols that have been used to control the masses on the cover. The fact that someone who hasn't even read the book missed the point further illustrates the book's necessity.
Articles that sound plausible enough to make you uneasy or downright paranoid cover many topics and make many assertions: that the deaths at Jonestown were the result of a CIA mind control experiment, that the Irish Republican Army has been consistently misrepresented in the media, that the legendary ANARCHIST COOKBOOK was a lethal exercise in government disinformation, and that US intelligence agencies have sought to develop "remote mind control technology".
Of course, plausibility is often in the eye of the beholder. To me the article written by a "survivor of electromagnetic terror" seems the work of a crazy man. Likewise, the man who thinks his father is a clone. (But crazy in a good, cranky sort of way.) Another essay seems the work of a clever psychotic who
