At any rate, former President Clinton said it was the most influential book he'd read, and in conspiracy circles, the rumors were always that the author was asked to catalog and organize records of the New World Order. So, in spite of Mr. Clinton's positive recommendation (that guy's a clown), I went looking for evidence of conspiracies, and indeed, found them. They're certainly in there. The basics of it are secular humanism, or, if you will, "civilizing the natives." Imagine a Brit beneath the skin saying, "Wouldn't it be great if all countries were as diplomatic and as orderly as the British? And if we all accepted English as a common language? And Anglophilism as a basis for modern culture?"
He's an American, but with strong British sympathies. He does agree that these rich people that run modern Europe (more akin to Masons), are even more secretive than we foil-hat wearers say they are.
What's more, is that his reading of history is downright insightful. He's obviously a brilliant man. That is inarguable. Whether he's wrong about Anglophilism being the way the world should be, or that Western Civilization never reconciled itself with Christianity being the dominant issue that we face (I agree with that one) -- both those are ancillary to the general perspecuity with which he views the world. It's like he wears x-ray specs.
I found his passages about the middle class towards the end of the book almost mind-blowing. He even predicts the modern climate today in his passages about "Irrational Activism", and one has to remind himself, "This book was written in 1964!" He predicts the emasculating climate of sexism that exists today that, while it claims that sexism exists against females, it opposes any balance with the male gender. As a male, I read many interesting things that go unsaid by our culture. Because if they are said by our culture, they go against the tide of feminism.
To get the final jolt read Douglas Read's taboo, "The Controversy of Zion," for a much deeper insight into the same events.
understandable. More, it makes much of the history of the last centuries understandable. I had lent my copy and never got it back.
Then it was out of print many years. I'm glad to have this edition which seems expanded from what I had read. A minor quibble: the
proofreading of this edition is a bit sloppy in a couple of place -- numbers left out (where probably they left a space to look up the
authoritative number) or units are wrong. Does not detract from what he said. A friend of mine was one of his students at
Georgetown University many years ago and was glad to see that he'd "finally finished the book he'd been talking about so much."
