That's how I feel: dizzy. So much information thrown at me (cramped into 15 hours, expected to cover 70 years - since 1945), without little structure.
We are jumping from the escape of Hitler to UFOs, from the Dullen nefarious brothers to dumbing down the population NY ingestion of drugs, or fluoride water,from here to there...
It's all there, don't get me wrong, it's all happening as described in the book and we get to experience it first hand as sheep, more or less... But give it to us in an orderly fashion so we can make sense of the information.
The narrator doesn't help, to say the least. I found him off balance to the story. Some people should not read...
I need to read (and not listen) the book again, take notes and make sense of the information. Otherwise, it's all wasted.
Jim Marrs will amaze you with his research and his complex interweaving of the history that you thought you knew.
Often times hard to follow, Jim takes you on a complex march through German History through the second World War, the rise and so called fall of the 3rd Reich and into modern day corporate America making revelations that will astound and stun!
Highly recommend this to anyone who thought they knew what happened after the Second World War and for those who think they know who runs America - Obama should read this!
Jim Marrs appeals to the paranoia which is rampant in today's economic and societal upheaval. Do some of the problems which plague us date back to the days when ex(?)-Nazis came to the US during Operation Paperclip? Did these scientists bring with them the ideals of the Third Reich and do these ideals find themselves imbedded in the scientific and medical communities today?
@Daniel - whoops! Looks like someone's confusing "Jews" with "Israel" again! One's a loosely-connected ethnic heritage/religious affiliation, one is a nation-state. "International financiers" and "international bankers" are crazy-anti-semitic-speak for Jews, but not usually in Marrs' terminology - in fact, he's often referring to the Rockefellers, Bushes, Farbin company descendants, etc.
The book is well done and well researched (though I might dispute the veracity of some of his sources) as all Marrs' books are. Though one must navigate the material with something of a critical eye (the Prescott Bush/Bush Family stuff is pretty well documented fact, whereas the Nazi superscience must necessarily be a product of rumors and slight documentation), the book tells an important story of the follies of corporate control of government (fascism being, in a sense, hypercapitalism) that's relevant to all free people today (look at today's conservative right/tea party/Wall St. contingent).
If there is a Fourth Reich, Marrs is a tool of it. I got the book hoping for a coherent, interesting, well researched but overly dramatic conspiracy theory. Instead it was incoherent and offered nothing interesting or researched. At one point in the book he calls the Brookings Institute part of the fascists in the American system then at another point he cites the Brookings Institute attacking Bush to support his argument that Bush is a fascist. He argues that Bush is a fascist because the people that worked for him believed in what they were doing. He also argues that Bush was a power monger because he didn't veto bills passed by Congress. In other words, Bush didn't block the laws Congress passed so he was undermining Congressional authority, Marrs argues. This entire book is a pathetic version of the fallacy of the appeal to authority. His "research" is allegations without any facts, only innuendo and quotes of the opinions of other people he calls authorities on subjects. He properly decries the loss of basic logic skills education but then shows he didn't learn basic logic by his repeated use of fallacies in reasoning. At one point he quotes someone as an authority on a Presidential signing statements, but the only source of authority is that she graduated from a law school. No advance law degree or experience in this area of the law needed, he cites her as an authority. Let me spoil the ending, as with all conspiracy theories, if you listen long enough it comes to a hissed whisper "the Jews!" Marrs concludes that everything that is wrong with the world is that we support Israel and the secretive "international financiers" or "international bankers" which is the more politically correct version of Hitler's attacks on "sneaky Jewish Bankers and shyster lawyers." How can Marrs decry fascism yet mimic Hitler's attacks on Jews, banks, capitalism, etc.? To answer that question you should use your credits/money on Ann Coulter's new book Demonic.
This book more than met my expectations. The storyline flowed seamlessly across the decades. Even though there was a great deal of information it wad never overwhelming. The barrator kept my attention and his performance and acuity at using appropriate silence should be mentioned. Good job overall.
