is the lie commonly agreed upon,"
it goes that most history books are wrong, or
at best, highly inaccurate. Disfigured by the
lies of the times, they typically present factoids
without context -- and usually without any hint
of the power struggles and conspiracies of realpolitik.
by academicians and other hacks employed by the
Power Elite, mainstream history books usually

are, however, rare exceptions.
Marrs' "Rule by Secrecy" is a challenging
and provocative history of the world framed by
the realities of secret societies. It is a literal
encyclopedia of hidden knowledge.

have played an important role in national and
international events right up to this day."

Commission, Council on Foreign Relations, Bilderbergers,
the Royal Institute of International Affairs,
the Round Table Group, and the Order of Skull

most Americans who have been conditioned by the
mass media to believe that conspiracies against

nations," writes Marrs.
simplistic view, encouraged by a media devoted
to maintaining a squeaky clean image of the status
quo, fails to take into account human history
or the subtleties of the word conspiracy."
then probes the history of the 20th Century --
the Wars in Vietnam, Korea, World War I and World
War II, explaining how Wall Street and City of
London bankers have financed not only the Nazi
War Machine, but the Russian Revolution and the
Rise of Communism as well.
Every person indoctrinated by establishment textbooks
believes that historical events are the result
of accident -- not the carefully laid strategems
of men who make money on wars -- men with connections
to secret societies and the politics of the occult.
back through the so-called US Civil War, or War
Between the States, Marrs reveals the history
of secret society agitation, the Anti-Masonic
Movement, the French Revolution, Jacobins and
Jacobites, and of course, the American Revolution
and the interference by the Illuminati and their
plots against Liberty and Freedom.
also tells the story of ancient secret societies
like the Knights Templars, Rosicrucians, Assassins,
Priory of Sion, the Merovingians and the far reaching
web of conspiracy which dominates world history.
back even further, Marrs relates the history of
the Road to Rome, the Cabala, the enigma of the
Sumerian civilization, the Annunaki, and the Floods
and Wars of primordial earth.

and totally entertaining. And it's the best available

the landmark deconstruction of the JFK Assassination,
"Crossfire" (1987), "Alien Agenda"
(1997) and "Psi Spies" (2000).
on the shoulders of independent researchers and
authors like the late Gary Allen, A. Ralph Epperson,
G. Edward Griffin, John Coleman, Jonathan Vankin,
Dr. Antony C. Sutton and Eustace Mullins to name
a few, Marrs admits that the book he's written
is "the kind of book I would have liked to
have read fifteen years ago."
immense wealth of information on secret societies,
most of it written long ago, is filled with names,
dates and events that are meaningless to modern
readers," writes Marrs. "Therefore judicious
editing and space limitations make this study
somewhat cursory by necessity. It is my hope that
just enough detail has been retained to support
this account of secret society activity while
still providing ease of reading over a very complex
and controversial subject."
notes, for example, that court hagiographer Niall
Ferguson, a 1998 Oxford Fellow, history tutor
and author of an extensive Rothschild Family history,
is "a self-styled atheist from a Calvinist
backgroundU who paid no attention whatsoever to
the metaphysical aspects of the Rothschild background,
their knowledge of Cabalistic tradition, or their
connecrtion to Freemasonry and other secret societies."
Is it willful ignorance? Or calculated omission
of the facts? By
dismissing occult politics in its historical context,
many authors miss the mark in their analysis.
They miss the hidden interconnections which reveal
the power struggles of realpolitik and vouchsafe
the reputations of the Ruling Class Criminals.
watchdog organizations like the right-wing Accuracy
in Media (AIM) are especially suspect, even though
they pretend to watch out for the public interest.
Michael Collins Piper in 1990 made public that
AIM founder Reed Irvine was paid $37,000 a year
as an 'advisor for the division of international
finance of the Federal Reserve System," writes
that many Fed members also belong to the secret
societies, Piper wrote, 'To this day, Irvine and
AIM never touch on any subject which is sensitive
to the interests of the international Establishment:
whether it be the Bilderberger group, the Trilateral
Commission, the Council on Foreign Relations or
the truth about the privately owned Federal Reserve.'"

domination under the guise of globalism or globalization.
question of whether or not a plan for one world
government is a sinister conspiracy to subjugate
the population or simply an attempt to facilitate
a natural evolutionary step is a matter still
to be decided, apparently with little or no help
from the media," writes Marrs .
"But one thing is absolutely clear,"
he continues. "It is apparent that globalization
or one world government or the New World Order
is not simply the imaginings of conspiracy theorists
or paranoids, but the articulated goal of the
secret brotherhoods, organizations and groups,
all of which carry the imprint of the old orders
of Freemasonry, the Round Tables and the Illuminati..."
the CFR, the Trilateral Commission, and the Bilderbergers
are simply innocent well-intentioned people working
to bring about a peaceful and prosperous world,
as they claim, then why all the secrecy?"
he asks. "Why all the front organizations,
some of which are the antithesis of others? Why
do they obviously distrust public attention?"

agrees. "World War II was fought to stop
fascists in Germany, Italy and Japan who had been
created and financed by secret society members
in the West. Despite the deadly nature of the
war, American and British society members continued
to do business with the enemy and then rearranged
their reconstruction afterwards. Nowhere was the
duplicity more evident than in President Roosevelt's
failure to alert American troops at Pearl Harbor
of the impending Japanese attack brought on by
his own containment policies."
"Rule By Secrecy" is a fascinating history
of insider world politics. It should be required
reading for every high school and college student.
is evident that, to whatever degree, individuals
connected by blood, titles, marriage or membership
in secret societies have manipulated and controlled
the destinies of entire nations through the fomenting
and funding of war," writes Marrs. "These
people consider themselves above the morality
and ethics of the average man. They obviously
look to some higher purpose whether that be sheer
wealth, power or perhaps some hidden agenda concerning
mankind's origin, destiny and spirituality."
"Rule by Secrecy" is an absolute must
for every thinking person's library. In a call
to action, the book ends with a self-empowering
concept that "knowledge is indeed power.
It is time for those who desire true freedom to
exert themselves to fight back against the forces
who desire domination through fear and disunity."
"It is a time for truth -- about our past
and our present, about who really rules and about
what's being done to this planet in the name of
progress and profit....The time for secrecy is
at an end."
