Oh God not this again.
That book is like a well-conceived horror novel combined with the stereotypical fundamentalist-Christian take on the "Illuminati" which itself is
mostly fictional (IMO). It has little bits of truth combined with huge leaps of logic and outright fabrications and/or lies, all presented as truth.
That is the problem; more specifically, the whole premise of the book and its sequels is that the authors obtained this information, or at least most
of it, from victims of mind-control who they "rescued" and "unbrainwashed." Yet the book claims that the mind-programming is so deep that this
unbrainwashing is practically impossible and any testimony from the victims is ultimately utterly untrustworthy. So all the theories in the book are
derived from sources who, according to the authors, are untrustworthy. Therefore the whole book is untrustworthy. There's no way to determine what's
true and what's false, other than gut instinct. The authors also do a very poor job of referencing sources. Whole chunks of information are presented
as proven facts without bothering to mention where the information came from. It's almost like the authors decided to start with a few
conspiracy-theory memes and dress it up with the most horrible implications they could dream up.
Personally, I was a bit terrified when I first skimmed through these books a while back, because I have a traumatic childhood with many fuzzy or
missing memories and it made me afraid I was secretly a victim of mind-control
But I eventually realized that the whole thing is such a cluster****
of logic fails that its not worth worrying about. And the authors' worldview is completely devoid of hope or optimism beyond a few vague references
to Christianity (just like Alex Jones) so I can only conclude that these books, like many things, exists purely for the purpose of generating fear.
Don't let it work
