    Throw out everything you think you know about history. Close the approved textbooks, turn off the corporate mass media, and whatever you do, don't believe anything you hear from the government---The Rise of the Fourth Reich reveals the truth about American power.

    Overall

    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.
