People look around at the civil society surrounding them.
They go online or watch or listen to the daily news.
They are bewildered.
They wonder how things got to be as they are, what’s behind it all?
The documented and authoritative answers have always been there.
But these answers were elusive.
They were often found in obscure hard to locate volumes or publications.
The elite media rarely, if ever, discussed these factual issues.
Many of those media elites were party to what was being perpetrated
(as with the contemporary Russiagate attempted coup against Trump or
the kangaroo court impeachment process).
But with the birth of the Internet that is no longer the case.
Here are several books, films, and documentaries that lay it all out.
They are audacious, forthright, and shocking in their boldness.
Each one holds nothing back in telling their particular story.
This isn’t “ancient history” but documentation of the roots of the problems
which beset us.
The truth is out there.
Brilliant synthesis of hundreds of books detailing the Establishment’s deadly war against
the American people, their liberties, and their families.
My highest recommendation! The chapter on the Corporate State remains the best thing
in print on that subject. I used to give this one as Christmas presents to try to wake up
some of my relatives to what was happening in the world.
The New World Order, by H. G. Wells
The title explains it all. Wells was one of the preeminent social critics and
intellectual voices of his era. A futurist, he wrote a number of utopian works
and foresaw the advent of aircraft, tanks, space travel, nuclear weapons,
satellite television and something resembling the World Wide Web.
Wells traveled in very powerful and influential circles of elite policy makers
and publicists such Alfred Viscount Milner, Winston Churchill,
individuals also were connected to the elite Round Table group
The Open Conspiracy, by H. G. Wells
Mostly known today as one of the pioneers in modern science fiction, there was much more
to Wells. He wrote a massive worldwide best seller, The Outline of History, which tried to
present a totally secular version of world history. Wells was a dedicated socialist and
proponent of world government. He was a prominent member of the Fabian Society
in the UK until expelled (more about the Fabians below).
His book, The Open Conspiracy, was published in 1928, subtitled ‘Blue Prints for
a World Revolution.’ Wells openly and frankly laid out his plans for a totalitarian future.
Things To Come (1936)
Well’s brilliantly executed SciFi epic against war and capitalism proposing a technocratic
fascist state of elite engineers (notice the telling reference to “the freemasonry of
science” by Raymond Massey’s character, John Cabel). Along with Fritz Lang’s Metropolis,
this film set the gold standard for cinematic science fiction for decades
The Trilateral Commission and Technocracy — Patrick M. Wood presentation.
The Wellsian idea of technocracy is not archaic or dead. It is now the dominant ideological
mindset of the elite as we shall see below.
With meticulous detail and an abundance of original research, Patrick M. Wood uses his
book Technocracy Rising and this authoritative presentation to connect the dots of modern
globalization in a way that has never been seen before so that persons can clearly
understand the globalization plan, its perpetrators and its intended endgame.
In the depths of the Great Depression during the 1930s, prominent scientists and
engineers proposed a utopian energy-based economic system called Technocracy that
would be run by those same scientists and engineers instead of elected politicians.
Although this radical movement lost momentum by 1940, it regained status when it was
conceptually adopted by the elitist Trilateral Commission (co-founded by Zbigniew
Brzezinski and David Rockefeller) in 1973 to become its so-called “New International
Economic Order.” Brzezinski called this the “Technetronic Era” in his 1970 book,
Between Two Ages. History now reveals the original Trilateral strategy and the means
(covert and overt) by which they have carried it out.
While watching this presentation, recall the details, pretexts and rationales behind
recent Green New Deal proposals and how they would fit or meld within this
Between Two Ages: America’s Role in the Technetronic Era — Book by Zbigniew Brzezinski.
Founded in 1973 by David Rockefeller and Zbigniew Brzezinski, the Trilateral Commission
embarked on a New International Economic Order based on technocracy.
Brzezinski called this the “Technetronic Era” in this book.
Here are significant Brzezinski quotes from that book:
The technotronic era involves the gradual appearance of a more controlled society.
Such a society would be dominated by an elite, unrestrained by traditional values.
Soon it will be possible to assert almost continuous surveillance over every citizen
and maintain up-to-date complete files containing even the most personal
information about the citizen. These files will be subject to instantaneous retrieval
by the authorities.
In the technotronic society the trend would seem to be towards the aggregation of the
individual support of millions of uncoordinated citizens, easily within the reach of
magnetic and attractive personalities exploiting the latest communications techniques
to manipulate emotions and control reason.
Marxism represents a further vital and creative state in the maturing of man’s universal
vision. Marxism is simultaneously a victory of the external, active man over the inner,
passive man and a victory of reason over belief.
National sovereignty is no longer a viable concept.
People, governments and economies of all nations must serve the needs of multinational
banks and corporations.
The society will be dominated by an elite of persons free from traditional values who will
have no doubt in fulfilling their objectives by means of purged techniques with which they
will influence the behavior of people and will control and watch the society in all details.
It will become possible to exert a practically permanent watch on each citizen of the world.
More directly linked to the impact of technology, it involves the gradual appearance of a
more controlled and directed society. Such a society would be dominated by an elite whose
claim to political power would rest on allegedly superior scientific know-how.
Unhindered by the restraints of traditional liberal values, this elite would not hesitate to
achieve its political ends by using the latest modern techniques for influencing public
behavior and keeping society under close surveillance and control.
Trilaterals Over Washington — Book by Antony C. Sutton and Patrick M. Wood
The Crisis of Democracy: On the Governability of Democracies was a 1975 report
written by Michel Crozier, Samuel P. Huntington, and Joji Watanuki for
the Trilateral Commission. In the same year, it was republished as a book
by the New York University Press.
The report observed the political state of the United States, Europe
and Japan and says that in the United States the problems of governance
“stem from an excess of democracy”and thus advocates “to restore the prestige
and authority of central government institutions.”
The report serves as an important point of reference for studies focusing
on the contemporary crisis of democracies. The report outlines that in
1960s Western Europe the governments are “overloaded with participants
and demands” which the highly bureaucratic political systems
are unable to handle, thus rendering their societies ungovernable.
It points to a political decision made by France that was made in
“semisecret, without open political debate, but with a tremendous
amount of lobbying and intrabureaucratic conflict.”
The report says the problems of the United States in the 1960s
stemmed from the “impulse of democracy … to make government
less powerful and more active, to increase its functions, and to
decrease its authority” and concludes that these demands
are contradictory. The impulse for the undermining of legitimacy
was said to come primarily from the “new activism” and an
adversarial news media, while the increase in government was
said to be due to the Cold War defense budget and
Great Society programs.
To remedy this condition, “balance [needs] to be restored between
governmental activity and governmental authority.”
The effects of this “excess of democracy” if not fixed are said to be
an inability to maintain international trade, balanced
budgets, and “hegemonic power” in the world.

— Book by Zbigniew Brzezinski.
As the twentieth century drew to a close, the United States emerged as the world’s
only superpower: no other nation possesses comparable military and economic
power or has interests that bestride the globe. Yet the critical question facing
America remains unanswered: What should be the nation’s global strategy for
maintaining its exceptional position in the world? Zbigniew Brzezinski tackles
this question head-on in this incisive and pathbreaking book.
The Grand Chessboard presents Brzezinski’s bold and provocative geostrategic
vision for American preeminence in the twenty first century. Central to his
analysis is the exercise of power on the Eurasian landmass, which is home to
the greatest part of the globe’s population, natural resources, and economic
activity. Stretching from Portugal to the Bering Strait, from Lapland to Malaysia,
Eurasia is the ”grand chessboard” on which America’s supremacy will be
ratified and challenged in the years to come.
The task facing the United States, he argues, is to manage the conflicts
and relationships in Europe, Asia, and the Middle East so that no rival
superpower arises to threaten our interests or our well-being.
The heart of The Grand Chessboard is Brzezinski’s analysis of the four
critical regions of Eurasia and of the stakes for America in each arena
—Europe, Russia, Central Asia, and East Asia.
The crucial fault lines may seem familiar, but the implosion of the
Soviet Union has created new rivalries and new relationships, and
Brzezinski maps out the strategic ramifications of the new geopolitical
realities. He explains, for example: Why France and Germany will
play pivotal geostrategic roles, whereas Britain and Japan will not.
Why NATO expansion offers Russia the chance to undo the mistakes
of the past, and why Russia cannot afford to toss this opportunity aside.
Why the fate of Ukraine and Azerbaijan are so important to America.
Why viewing China as a menace is likely to become a self fulfilling prophecy.
Why America is not only the first truly global superpower but also the last
—and what the implications are for America’s legacy.
Brzezinski’s surprising and original conclusions often turn conventional
wisdom on its head as he lays the groundwork for a new and compelling
vision of America’s vital interests.
The Fabian Society was a very powerful and influential group of British socialists who
believed socialism could be created in the UK by gradualism, not by revolution.
They were particularly dominant in the Labour Party and elite intellectual circles.
The League for Industrial Democracy was the American offshoot, full of very influential
elite intellectual and academic voices. The Students for a Democratic Society,
was founded by Tom Hayden, who wrote the Port Huron Statement.
SDS became a fixture on US college campuses in the 1960s, and was yet
a further offshoot of the LID.
This book has all but disappeared from libraries, coast to coast.
It names names.
In the Shadows of the American Century: The Rise and Decline of US Global Power — Book by Alfred W. McCoy
In a completely original analysis, prize-winning historian Alfred W. McCoy explores America’s rise as a world power—from the 1890s through the Cold War—and its bid to extend its hegemony deep into the twenty-first century through a fusion of cyberwar, space warfare, trade pacts, and military alliances. McCoy then analyzes the marquee instruments of US hegemony—covert intervention, client elites, psychological torture, and worldwide surveillance.
Peeling back layers of secrecy, McCoy exposes a military and economic battle for global domination fought in the shadows, largely unknown to those outside the highest rungs of power. Can the United States extend the “American Century” or will China guide the globe for the next hundred years? McCoy devotes his final chapter to these questions, boldly laying out a series of scenarios that could lead to the end of Washington’s world domination by 2030.
The American Deep State — an Amazon book list.
The incomparable researchers Peter Dale Scott, Ph.D. (The American Deep State: Wall Street, Big Oil, and the Attack on U. S. Democracy and American War Machine: Deep Politics, the CIA Global Drug Connection, and the Road to Afghanistan) and Alfred W. McCoy, Ph.D. (The Politics of Heroin: CIA Complicity in the Global Drug Trade) have detailed the covert “deep state” reality of the domestic power elite enmeshed within the extra-constitutional welfare-warfare state apparatus enabled by the Federal Reserve, while the belligerent interventionist foreign policy with the Third World since the end of World War II is exposed as narco-centric, behind the Cold War/War on Terror public facade or rationale.
Along with the multinational petroleum and weapons/intelligence industries of the military-industrial complex, the global narcotics trade is one the biggest businesses in the world. It is fueled and enabled by the clandestine intersection of drug money, intelligence and money laundering on a vast scale by banks and financial institutions across the planet. Dedicated researchers have connected the dots linking the “underworld” of organized crime (narcotics) to the “upperworld” of the establishment (Wall Street banks and CFR-connected corporations/foundations/media). Interwoven within the nexus are the clandestine intelligence services, with ties to both “worlds.”
The American deep state : Wall Street, big oil, and the attack on U.S. democracy — Book by Peter Dale Scott
This provocative book makes a compelling case for a hidden “deep state” that influences and often opposes official U.S. policies. Prominent political analyst Peter Dale Scott begins by tracing America’s increasing militarization, restrictions on constitutional rights, and income disparity since the Vietnam War. He argues that a significant role in this historic reversal was the intervention of a series of structural deep events, ranging from the assassination of President Kennedy to 9/11. He does not attempt to resolve the controversies surrounding these events, but he shows their significant points in common, ranging from overlapping personnel and modes of operation to shared sources of funding. Behind all of these commonalities is what Scott calls the deep state: a second order of government, behind the public or constitutional state, that has grown considerably stronger since World War II. He marshals convincing evidence that the deep state is partly institutionalized in non-accountable intelligence agencies like the CIA and NSA, but it also includes private corporations like Booz Allen Hamilton and SAIC, to which 70 percent of intelligence budgets are outsourced. Behind these public and private institutions is the traditional influence of Wall Street bankers and lawyers, allied with international oil companies beyond the reach of domestic law. With the importance of Gulf states like Saudi Arabia to oil markets, American defense companies, and Wall Street itself, this essential book shows that there is now a supranational deep state, sometimes demonstrably opposed to both White House policies and the American public interest.
American War Machine: Deep Politics, the CIA Global Drug Connection, and the Road to Afghanistan — Book by Peter Dale Scott
This provocative, thoroughly researched book explores the covert aspects of U.S. foreign policy. Prominent political analyst Peter Dale Scott marshals compelling evidence to expose the extensive growth of sanctioned but illicit violence in politics and state affairs, especially when related to America’s long-standing involvement with the global drug traffic. Beginning with Thailand in the 1950s, Americans have become inured to the CIA’s alliances with drug traffickers (and their bankers) to install and sustain right-wing governments. The pattern has repeated itself in Laos, Vietnam, Italy, Mexico, Thailand, Nigeria, Venezuela, Colombia, Peru, Chile, Panama, Honduras, Turkey, Pakistan, and now Afghanistan_to name only those countries dealt with in this book. Scott shows that the relationship of U.S. intelligence operators and agencies to the global drug traffic, and to other international criminal networks, deserves greater attention in the debate over the U.S. presence in Afghanistan. To date, America’s government and policies have done more to foster than to curtail the drug trade. The so-called war on terror, and in particular the war in Afghanistan, constitutes only the latest chapter in this disturbing story.
The Politics of Heroin: CIA Complicity in the Global Drug Trade — Book by Alfred W. McCoy
Initially published in 1972, this is the expanded and updated version of The Politics of Heroin in Southeast Asia, and includes meticulous documentation of dishonesty and dirty dealings at the highest levels from the Cold War until today. Maintaining a global perspective, this groundbreaking study details the mechanics of drug trafficking in Asia, Europe, the Middle East, and South and Central America. New chapters detail U.S. involvement in the narcotics trade in Afghanistan and Pakistan before and after the fall of the Taliban, and how U.S. drug policy in Central America and Colombia has increased the global supply of illicit drugs.
I had an opportunity to discuss his scholarly endeavors with Dr. McCoy several years ago
The Invisible Government — Book by David Wise and Thomas B. Ross.
Groundbreaking, pioneer expose of the deep state. “There are two governments in the United States today. One is visible. The other is invisible.”
Wise and Ross continued: “The first is the government that citizens read about in their newspapers and children study about in their civics books. The second is the interlocking, hidden machinery that carries out the policies of the United States in the Cold War. This second, invisible government gathers intelligence, conducts espionage, and plans and executes secret operations all over the globe.”
National Security and Double Government — Book by Michael J. Glennon.
National security policy in the United States has remained largely constant from the Bush Administration to the Obama Administration. This continuity can be explained by the “double government” theory of 19th-century scholar of the English Constitution Walter Bagehot. As applied to the United States, Bagehot’s theory suggests that U.S. national security policy is defined by the network of executive officials who manage the departments and agencies responsible for protecting U.S. national security and who, responding to structural incentives embedded in the U.S. political system, operate largely removed from public view and from constitutional constraints.
The public believes that the constitutionally-established institutions control national security policy, but that view is mistaken. Judicial review is negligible; congressional oversight is dysfunctional; and presidential control is nominal. Absent a more informed and engaged electorate, little possibility exists for restoring accountability in the formulation and execution of national security policy.
JFK-9/11 50 Years of Deep State — Book by Laurent Guyenot
JFK-9/11 assembles the most significant and well-documented “deep events” of the last fifty years into a coherent narrative of the “deep history” of the United States and its sphere of influence. The result is both a concise introduction for newcomers (a “deep history for dummies”), and an insightful perspective for informed readers. Relying strictly on documented evidence and state-of-the-art JFK and 9/11 research, the book cuts through the layers of government and mainstream media lies, to expose the hidden powers at work in the Empire’s underground foreign policy. It documents the role of undercover and paramilitary operations, psychological warfare and disinformation campaigns, and above all false flag terror, in the course of world politics since the beginning of the Cold War, and increasingly since September 11th. The book is divided in two parts: the first deals with the underlying forces of the Cold War, the second with the driving forces of the War on Terror.
Government of the Shadows: Parapolitics and Criminal Sovereignty — Book by Eric Wilson (editor).
Government of the Shadows analyses the concept of clandestine government. It explores how covert political activity and transnational organised crime are linked — and how they ultimately work to the advantage of state and corporate power. The book shows that legitimate government is now routinely accompanied by extra-governmental covert operations.
Using a variety of case studies, from the mafia in Italy to programmes for food and reconstruction in Iraq, the contributors illustrate that para-political structures are not ‘deviant’, but central to the operation of global governments. The creation of this truly parallel world-economy, the source of huge political and economic potential, entices states to undertake new forms of regulation, either through their own intelligence agencies, or through the more shadowy world of criminal cartels.
The Dual State: Parapolitics, Carl Schmitt and the National Security Complex — Book by Eric Wilson (editor).
This volume presents a practical demonstration of the relevance of Carl Schmitt’s thought to parapolitical studies, arguing that his constitutional theory is the one best suited to investing the ’deep state’ with intellectual and doctrinal coherence. Critiquing Schmitt’s work from a variety of intellectual perspectives, the chapters discuss current parapolitical reality within the domain of criminology, the parapolitical nature of both the dual state and the national security state corporate complex.
Using the USA as a prime example of the world’s current dual or ’deep political state’, the criminogenic dimensions of the parapolitical systems of post 9/11 America are discussed. Using case studies, the dual state is examined as the causal factor of inexplicable parapolitical events within both the developed and developing world, including Sweden, Canada, Italy, Turkey, and Africa.
“The Dual State is a powerful and provocative interrogation of contemporary politics of security, based on a critical reinterpretation of Carl Schmitt’s political thought. The contributors trace the operation of the para-political logic in a dazzling variety of settings, demonstrating the continuing dependence of the global liberal order on disavowed and covert structures of authority. Combining theoretical sophistication with empirical diversity, this volume is essential reading for anyone interested in understanding contemporary world politics.’ Sergei Prozorov, University of Helsinki, Finland
‘Recent history (with its seminal falsifications like the false-flag US anthrax attacks) has served to increase the relevance of parapolitical analysis. This anthology shows the recurrence of parapolitics in many different countries, and also contributes to a theoretical understanding of both the phenomenon and the study of it, the latter in the context of officially funded (and CIA-subsidized) academic social science. Most of the investigative essays are open-ended, as they should be. In all this important and wide-ranging collection is an excellent introduction to parapolitical studies, the best that I know.” — Peter Dale Scott, University of California, Berkeley, USA
Devil’s Game: How the United States Helped Unleash Fundamentalist Islam — Book by Robert Dreyfus
“The most clear and engaging history of the deadly, historic partnership between Western powers and political Islam.”—Salon.com
Devil’s Game is the first comprehensive account of America’s misguided efforts, stretching across decades, to dominate the strategically vital Middle East by courting and cultivating Islamic fundamentalism.
Drawing on extensive archival research and interviews with dozens of policy makers and CIA, Pentagon, and foreign service officials, Robert Dreyfuss follows the trail of American collusion from support for the Muslim Brotherhood in 1950s Egypt, to links with Khomeini and Afghani jihadists, to longstanding ties between radical Islamists and the leading banks of the West. The result is as tragic as it is paradoxical: originally deployed as pawns to foil nationalism and communism, extremist mullahs and ayatollahs now dominate the landscape, thundering against freedom of thought, science, women’s rights, secularism—and their former patron.
Chronicling a history of double-dealing, cynical exploitation, and humiliating embarrassment that continues to this day, Devil’s Game reveals a pattern that, far from furthering democracy or security, ensures a future of blunders and blowback.
The Crimes of Patriots: A True Tale of Dope, Dirty Money, and the CIA — Book by Jonathan Kwitny.
When the Tower Commission concluded that the Iran-contra affair was an aberration, it was wrong. Those who doubt the existence of what David Wise and Thomas Ross in 1964 called the ” Invisible Government” should read Kwitny’s detailed, chilling expose of the network of current and former military men and intelligence operatives who conducted a far-reaching “covert” operation behind the cover of an Australian bank.
After the Nugan Hand bank collapsed in 1980, what emerged (according to this book, not the official investigation) is a web of crime, corruption, drugs, and CIA complicity in undermining a friendly nation’s politics and defrauding ordinary people that makes Watergate, if not Contra-gate, look like a Sunday school picnic. Wall Street Journal correspondent Kwitny is the author of Endless Enemies. — From Library Journal.
The Iran-Contra Connection: Secret Teams and Covert Operations in the Reagan Era — Book by Jane Hunter, Jonathan Marshall, Peter Dale Scott
The Secret Government – The Constitution In Crisis — Documentary.
This acclaimed PBS documentary is Bill Moyer’s 1987 scathing critique of the criminal subterfuge carried out by the Executive Branch of the United States Government to implement covert operations which are clearly contrary to the wishes and values of the American people. This film discusses how the “secret government” has no constitution; the rules it follows are the rules it makes up. It also compares and contrasts the Watergate Scandal and the Iran-Contra Affair as detailed in the film.
Cover Up: Behind the Iran-Contra Affair — Documentary (2 page essay)
This documentary discusses the hidden dimensions of the Iran-Contra Affair; the October Surprise Scandal of 1980; CIA complicity in the global narcotics trade; CIA assassinations and covert activities; and FEMA, REX84, and the plans for the suspension of the U. S. Constitution.

How Big Oil Conquered the World — Documentary.
From farm to pharmaceutical, diesel truck to dinner plate, pipeline to plastic product, it is impossible to think of an area of our modern-day lives that is not effected by the oil industry. The story of oil is the story of the modern world. And this is the story of those who helped shape that world, and how the oil-igarchy they created is on the verge of monopolizing life itself. TRANSCRIPT AND SOURCES
Why Big Oil Conquered The World — Documentary.
The 20th century was the century of oil. From farm to fork, factory to freeway, there is no aspect of our modern life that has not been shaped by the oil industry. But as the “post-carbon” era of the 21st century comes into view, there are those who see this as the end of the oiligarchy. They couldn’t be more wrong. This is the remarkable true story of the world that Big Oil is creating, and how they plan to bring it about.
