I thought this book was gonna be more "here's how the system was worked by rich dudes to transfer wealth and power to the banking elite", but it was more "everything is part of an orchestrated plan to gain total power and enslave the human race by the global elite".
It gets a bit nutso.
It starts out normal enough, talking about the Fed and our current financial credit disaster. Yes, central banking with a fiat currency results in inflation, which is a mechanism to transfer wealth. Rich people work to get richer.
Then it gets into medicine, and how we are all injected with undetectable viruses, and fluoride in the tap water is a mind control device, and the cancer cure exists, but the global elite keep it secret to use on themselves. Hmmm..
There was some good ol' Obama bashing, which I appreciate, since I don't really get a whole lot of it here in San Frantastic. This book, however, will have you conclude that he is not really just another crummy politician, he is part of the vast conspiracy to rule and enslave the world, perpetrated by the global elite.
When he got to chemtrails, this book lost all credibility to me.
So anyway. I was hoping this book would be well thought out, thought provoking and interesting. Instead it was severely one-sided, made use of backwards logic, used out-of-context quotes, and put forth social and political shortcomings as "proof" that there is a vast conspiracy. This is definitely not a book for the intelligent, thinking skeptic that sees more than one side to an issue.
This book makes great observations about problems in our society, but makes far-flung, conspiratorial conclusions, instead of analyzing the issues realistically.
The last part of the book, about guns, was neat though. I like guns, so I guess I'll keep my Beretta handy when the shock troopers of the global elite come knocking at my door to inject me with a microchip and send me to a concentration camp.
I keep re listening in amazement if its true we are all screwed
It opened my eyes
Can't pick one
Ya it all scared the crap out of me how's that for movement
Everyone should read thi book
Did not see the print edition.
The zombie-fied, lazy, poorly educated, hypnotized, shallow Americans who are sleeping through the wildly metastasticizing political cancer that is devouring our every Constitutionally endowed liberty and sealing this country's ruin.
It would be difficult to read this piece without infusing bias or emotion into the delivery. He does a marvelous job considering the text.
Not really a pivotal moment. The material was presented logically and progressively.
Make the time.
Read it and be prepared.
This book covers quite a bit of ground. I had to take some breaks to process all of the info and do some fact checking here and there. But as a "news junkie" and daily reader of local, national, and international news, I can see Mr. Marrs' claims unfolding!
I love me some audio books! My taste ranges from Self Help, Motivational, Success, Fiction, Autobiography, African American, NWO, Business, Religious and more. I will be commenting from time to time and I hope my reviews are helpful!
Everyone should have a copy of this book. It actually sparked my interest to dig deeper and explore what is going on in this world. I definitely recommend this to all!
Don't know if it's better, but it is very good.
Yes, it made me indignant and sad.
Whether or not one subscribes to Marrs' ideas of conspiracy, the information he provides is invaluable and worth pondering.
Depends on who. If you are well versed in conspiracy topics and up to date on current financial, social, and health conditions of the country, you can skip this one. I learned very little that was new to me from this book. I would Recommend it to someone just starting their journey down the path of alternative history.
I love Jim Marrs books Rule by Secrecy was the first one I ever read and was instrumental in waking me up to the real political power structure. His best book is by far Rise of the Fourth Reich- it is incredible. It's the best history book I've ever read. Audible has this selection. GO GET IT
a pleasant tone of voice. i dont think the reader has much background in the information presented in the book. He mispronounced some things but other than that he has a good reading voice.
Zombie Nation- in fact was the original title of the book, but the publishers refused to print it. If you ask me, its still the name of the book. It's the entire theme of the book and is referenced often. We live in a Zombie Nation with Zombie Banks and Zombie People.

It was ok time spent, I thought the book was more financially oriented, however the subtitle hints and other conspiracies. And after finishing, the book it is a collection of 20 or conspiracies. Some of which make you think about things we took for granted(e.g. fluorinated water)
A more accurate title listing the discreet topics covered, was initially curious about the fed and our potential economic crises. But that was probably only 20% of book.
Research some of his conspiracies.
You should google Jim Marrs first, to see what to expect and his background.
I loved Marrs's treatment of the subprime mortgage crisis and how it ultimately led to the economic unraveling of 2008. He has a good grasp of the problem as well as what kind of policies helped to create it in the first place.
The most compelling argument that Marrs makes is that globalized markets and the move toward global governance present dire threats to U.S. national sovereignty. Global government would drastically reduce the freedoms and the standard of living that Americans have enjoyed up to now.
Very clear and straightforward narration, with correct pronunciation.
I was a little disappointed that Marrs took up time rehashing that old conspiracy-theory chestnut about flouridated water.
I'm not normally a fan of "conspiracy theory" literature, and generally avoid anything that smacks of the tinfoil hat. But I would say that about 80% of the material in here is not really theorizing or speculation, it's actual description and relies for the most part on open sources found in mainstream publications. I will say that although Marrs seems, for the most part, to position himself on the political Right, there are times when he holds wildly contradictory positions that don't make sense ideologically. You simply can't be a libertarian and a protectionist, for example, at the same time.
For the most part, however, this is a very stimulating and fascinating book, if you can simply take about 20% of it with a grain of salt. I listened to the whole thing over a period of two days. It was actually quite addictive.
