Nov 21, Mike the Paladin rated it really liked it Shelves: nonfiction , conspiracy. I'm not going to take a stand on conspiracy here. I have a close friend who is exceedingly intelligent and she has believed to some extent in conspiracy theory for years. I was one who said things like Now, I'm 66 and history looks a lot more planned than it used to. The continual creep away from personal freedom and responsibility toward a cradle to grave "baby-sitter' government.
The press moving from watch-dog for government corruptio Look The press moving from watch-dog for government corruption to mouthpiece for the Democratic party read political left. Look I know most will now dismiss me as fading into "crackpotism" but I repeat.
I don't really know but things just look too fishy somehow. I'm just saying keep an open mind and think about it.
And also ask why all conspiracy theories seem to get lumped together Weird ones to sane ones all just labeled "conspiracy theories" with an eye-roll and maybe a sneer???? Anyway, just think about it, open minds and such.
May 31, Timothy L. Loved this book. It makes John A. I generally do not believe in "conspiracy" as many do I think Epperson is misled that conspiracy is so prevalent on a human level. To me it seems more plausible that human collaborators and useful idiots are really in fact just marionettes organized and manipulated from a spiritual plain.
Also, I think Epperson is mistaken that destruction can be averted Perhaps for Loved this book. Perhaps for a couple decades. But the fat is going to hit the fan and this government could not have done worse if it planned to do so All said, this book is a great resource to see that there are nefarious things a foot. Some of it is a bit dated but the impact of reading in and thinking about the actualities and what they mean will not be View 2 comments.
Feb 25, Frank rated it really liked it. An excellent read for a devil's advocate, and to know extremes. His arguments are similar to Ron Paul, in the sense that what he says makes a decent amount of sense, yet are still quite crazy.
Sep 23, Robin rated it it was amazing. Very interesting book-- content wise. The ebook I bought was full of errors, either from converting to an e-format or contained in the source material. Since I don't own the fossil-copy, I can't say. This book offers a very concise introduction to the conspiratorial view of history and really kicks the shit out of the current model of history: Everything that's happened just sorta happened.
If you study much history at all, it's absurd to think things just happened and no one willed events into pl Very interesting book-- content wise. If you study much history at all, it's absurd to think things just happened and no one willed events into place.
In fact, it's beyond absurd to think rich and powerful people are ineffective in maintaining power through conspiracies. The current world offers too much in the way of evidence to allow this kind of vacuous thinking and examination of the past to continue.
I would challenge the modern reader to see the banking crisis as something not fully detailed, step-by-step in this book. In fact, the inflation of the dollar is still happening with Quantitative Easing printing money and we're going to get the crunch sooner than later. And what's funny: Its the same cast of people involved now, that were involved then.
And while I don't agree with a lot of what's in the book, Epperson does back his statements with endless endnotes. The research done is impeccable. In short, this book makes a great case for a new pedagogical paradigm within historical disciplines when examining the past and the reasons behind certain events. It, combined with Frank Dittoker's "Mao's Great Famine", will change how you view communism and socialism.
I very much recommend this read even with all the errors. Nov 11, Kevin Lazarus rated it really liked it. I found this book deeply interesting. Though I take issue with the Jewish conspiracy. For a short period of my life I had the wonderful experience of living amongst orthodox Jews and found them to be much like my own people. While Ralph Epperson brings some interesting facts to light, something that I think everyone should learn, I would tread lightly on his conclusions.
If there is a dark evil conspiracy, and history teaches us that there is always one to be had, I don't think you can pin it on I found this book deeply interesting. If there is a dark evil conspiracy, and history teaches us that there is always one to be had, I don't think you can pin it on one religion.
The bigger the conspiracy, the more fingers you have in the pie. I recommend the read, but think and question. Lean on facts, not conclusions. Nov 27, Zinger rated it it was amazing Shelves: This is another book that explains what was and is really happening in history and today.
Things don't happen by accident, and if you follow the money, you will find some of the same characters before and after a particular event like WW1, the Great Depression, WW2, the fall of Russia, China, and the rest to communism, the Federal Reserve This book turns public school's history upside down, and one comes away with an understanding of why something happen, This is another book that explains what was and is really happening in history and today.
This book turns public school's history upside down, and one comes away with an understanding of why something happen, and the awful feeling and knowledge that some people really are evil. Wake up America!
Apr 28, Leondis Jones rated it it was amazing. One of the best books I've ever picked up!.. And for this book to have been published in , it still makes sense of what's happening in

Epperson is a proponent of the conspiratorial view of history, which holds that "historical events occur by design for reasons that are not generally made known to the people,"  in contrast to the mainstream view, termed the accidental view of history, which according to Epperson holds that "historical events occur by accident, for no apparent reason"  and "no one really knows why events happen—they just do.
