Chapter 1 - Don't Confuse Me With Facts
Most of us have had the experience, either as parents or youngsters, of trying to
discover the "hidden picture" within another picture in a children's magazine. Usually
you are shown a landscape with trees, bushes, flowers and other bits of nature.
The caption reads something like this: "Concealed somewhere in this picture is a donkey
pulling a cart with a boy in it. Can you find them?" Try as you might, usually you
could not find the hidden picture until you turned to a page farther back in the
magazine which would reveal how cleverly the artist had hidden it from us. If we
study the landscape we realize that the whole picture was painted in such a way as to
conceal the real picture within, and once we see the "real picture," it stands out like
the proverbial painful digit.
We believe the picture painters of the mass media are artfully creating landscapes for
us which deliberately hide the real picture. In this book we will show you how to
discover the "hidden picture" in the landscapes presented to us daily through
newspapers, radio and television. Once you can see through the camouflage, you will
see the donkey, the cart and the boy who have been there all along.
Millions of Americans are concerned and frustrated over mishappenings in our nation.
They feel that something is wrong, drastically wrong, but because of the picture
painters they can't quite put their fingers on it.
Maybe you are one of those persons. Something is bugging you, but you aren't sure
what. We keep electing new Presidents who seemingly promise faithfully to halt the
world-wide Communist advance, put the blocks to extravagant government spending,
douse the fires of inflation, put the economy on an even keel, reverse the trend which
is turning the country into a moral sewer, and toss the criminals into the hoosegow
where they belong. Yet, despite high hopes and glittering campaign promises, these
problems continue to worsen no matter who is in office. Each new administration,
whether it be Republican or Democrat, continues the same basic policies of the
previous administration which it had so thoroughly denounced during the election
campaign. It is considered poor form to mention this, but it is true nonetheless. Is
there a plausible reason to explain why this happens? We are not supposed to think so.
We are supposed to think it is all accidental and coincidental and that therefore there
is nothing we can do about it.
FDR once said "In politics, nothing happens by accident. If it happens, you can bet it
was planned that way." He was in a good position to know. We believe that many of
the major world events that are shaping our destinies occur because somebody or
somebodies have planned them that way. If we were merely dealing with the law of
averages, half of the events affecting our nation's well-being should be good for
America. If we were dealing with mere incompetence, our leaders should occasionally
make a mistake in our favor. We shall attempt to prove that we are not really dealing
with coincidence or stupidity, but with planning and brilliance. This small book deals
with that planning and brilliance and how it has shaped the foreign and domestic
policies of the last six administrations. We hope it will explain matters which have up
to now seemed inexplicable; that it will bring into sharp focus images which have
been obscured by the landscape painters of the mass media.
Those who believe that major world events result from planning are laughed at for
believing in the "conspiracy theory of history." Of course, no one in this modern day
and age really believes in the conspiracy theory of history -except those who have
taken the time to study the subject. When you think about it, there are really only two
theories of history. Either things happen by accident neither planned nor caused by
anybody, or they happen because they are planned and somebody causes them to
happen. In reality, it is the "accidental theory of history" preached in the unhallowed
Halls of Ivy which should be ridiculed. Otherwise, why does every recent
administration make the same mistakes as the previous ones? Why do they repeat the
errors of the past which produce inflation, depressions and war? Why does our State
Department "stumble" from one Communist-aiding "blunder" to another? If you
believe it is all an accident or the result of mysterious and unexplainable tides of
history, you will be regarded as an "intellectual" who understands that we live in a
complex world. If you believe that something like 32,496 consecutive coincidences
over the past forty years stretches the law of averages a bit, you are a kook!
Why is it that virtually all "reputable" scholars and mass media columnists and
commentators reject the cause and effect or conspiratorial theory of history?
Primarily, most scholars follow the crowd in the academic world just as most women
follow fashions. To buck the tide means social and professional ostracism. The same
is true of the mass media. While professors and pontificators profess to be tolerant
and broadminded, in practice it's strictly a one way street-with all traffic flowing left.
A Maoist can be tolerated by Liberals of Ivory Towerland or by the Establishment's
media pundits, but to be a conservative, and a conservative who propounds a
conspiratorial view, is absolutely verboten. Better you should be a drunk at a national
Secondly, these people have over the years acquired a strong vested emotional interest
in their own errors. Their intellects and egos are totally committed to the accidental
theory. Most people are highly reluctant to admit that they have been conned or have
shown poor judgment. To inspect the evidence of the existence of a conspiracy
guiding our political destiny from behind the scenes would force many of these
people to repudiate a lifetime of accumulated opinions. It takes a person with strong
character indeed to face the facts and admit he has been wrong even if it was because
he was uninformed.
Such was the case with the author of this book. It was only because he set out to prove
the conservative anti-Communists wrong that he happened to end up writing this
book. His initial reaction to the conservative point of view was one of suspicion and
hostility; and it was only after many months of intensive research that he had to admit
that he had been "conned."
Politicians and "intellectuals" are attracted to the concept that events are propelled by
some mysterious tide of history or happen by accident. By this reasoning they hope to
escape the blame when things go wrong.
Most intellectuals, pseudo and otherwise, deal with the conspiratorial theory of
history simply by ignoring it. They never attempt to refute the evidence. It can't be
refuted. If and when the silent treatment doesn't work, these "objective" scholars and
mass media opinion molders resort to personal attacks, ridicule and satire. The
personal attacks tend to divert attention from the facts which an author or speaker is
trying to expose. The idea is to force the person exposing the conspiracy to stop the
exposure and spend his time and effort defending himself.
However, the most effective weapons used against the conspiratorial theory of history
are ridicule and satire. These extremely potent weapons can be cleverly used to avoid
any honest attempt at refuting the facts. After all, nobody likes to be made fun of.
Rather than be ridiculed most people will keep quiet; and, this subject certainly does
lend itself to ridicule and satire. One technique which can be used is to expand the
conspiracy to the extent it becomes absurd. For instance, our man from the Halls of
Poison Ivy might say in a scoffingly arrogant tone, "I suppose you believe every
liberal professor gets a telegram each morning from conspiracy headquarters
containing his orders for the day's brainwashing of his students?" Some
conspiratorialists do indeed overdraw the picture by expanding the conspiracy (from
the small clique which it is) to include every local knee-jerk liberal activist and
government bureaucrat. Or, because of racial or religious bigotry, they will take small
fragments of legitimate evidence and expand them into a conclusion that will support
their particular prejudice, i.e., the conspiracy is totally "Jewish," "Catholic," or
"Masonic." These people do not help to expose the conspiracy, but, sadly play into the
hands of those who want the public to believe that all conspiratorialists are screwballs.
"Intellectuals" are fond of mouthing clichés like "The conspiracy theory is often
tempting. However, it is overly simplistic." To ascribe absolutely everything that
happens to the machinations of a small group of power hungry conspirators is overly
simplistic. But, in our opinion nothing is more simplistic than doggedly holding onto
the accidental view of major world events.
In most cases Liberals simply accuse all those who discuss the conspiracy of being
paranoid. "Ah, you right wingers," they say, "rustling every bush, kicking over every
rock, looking for imaginary boogeymen." Then comes the coup de grace-labeling the
conspiratorial theory as the "devil theory of history." The Liberals love that one. Even
though it is an empty phrase, it sounds so sophisticated!
With the leaders of the academic and communications world assuming this sneering
attitude towards the conspiratorial (or cause and effect) theory of history, it is not
surprising that millions of innocent and well-meaning people, in a natural desire not to
appear naive, assume the attitudes and repeat the clichés of the opinion makers. These
persons, in their attempt to appear sophisticated, assume their mentors' air of smug
superiority even though they themselves have not spent five minutes in study on the
subject of international conspiracy.
The "accidentalists" would have us believe that ascribing any of our problems to
planning is 'simplistic" and all our problems are caused by Poverty, Ignorance and
Disease--hereinafter abbreviated as FID. They ignore the fact that organized
conspirators use PID, real and imagined, as an excuse to build a jail for us all. Most of
the world has been in PID since time immemorial and it takes incredibly superficial
thinking to ascribe the ricocheting of the United States government from one disaster
to another over the past thirty years to PID. "Accidentalists" ignore the fact that some
