In this explosive new book, the legendary Jim Marrs, author of the underground best seller Rule by Secrecy, reveals the frighteningly real possibility that today the United States is becoming the Fourth Reich, the continuation of an ideology thought to have been vanquished more than a half century ago. This concept may seem absurd to those who cannot see past the rose-colored spin, hype, and disinformation poured out daily by the media conglomerates---most of which are owned by the very same families and corporations that supported the Nazis before World War II. But as Marrs precisely explains, National Socialism never died; rather, its hideous philosophy is alive and active in modern America. Unfortunately, most people cannot understand the shadowy links between fascism and corporate power, the military, and our elected leaders. Although the United States helped defeat the Germans in World War II, we failed to defeat the Nazis. At the end of the war, ranking Nazis, along with their young and fanatical proteges, used the loot of Europe to create corporate front companies in many countries, including the United States of America. Utilizing their stolen wealth, men with Nazi backgrounds and mentalities wormed their way into corporate America, slowly buying up and consolidating companies into giant multinational conglomerates. Many thousands of other Nazis came to the United States under classified programs, such as Project Paperclip. They brought with them miraculous weapons technology that helped win the space race, but they also brought their insidious Nazi philosophy within our borders. This ideology, based on the authoritarian premise that the end justifies the means.

@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).
I would love to tell you what I thought of this book, but Audible won't let me download it or another conspiracy book that I paid for. However it will let me download other books that are not conspiracy related. Sounds like a conspiracy doesn't it?
I don't feel like my review is fair because I didn't come anywhere near to finishing the book. James Franco's performance did not do it for me. In fact both me and my boyfriend did not make it through the book based on that. Something about it dampened any interest I had in the story. Anyway, if my desire to get this book is ever reinvigorated I'll just be reading it instead of listening.
Should get interesting in the next few years . just don't know who to believe . Even if the Republican get in office they'll still be controlled by the global establishment .
I love fiction (horror especially) and I love historical non-fiction. I deeply love metaphysics and theologically challenging works.
Very interesting study. Right up my alley and I found it a great listen. I believe I'll listen to it many more times.
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.
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.
