Publisher's Summary

The information contained in this book contradicts nearly everything you've been led to believe about democracy and "representative government".

Based on the groundbreaking research of respected historian Carroll Quigley, Tragedy and Hope 101 reveals an unimaginably devious political system, skillfully manipulated by a handful of elite, which is undermining freedom and democracy as we know it. The goal of those who control the system, in Quigley's own words, is to dominate "all habitable portions of the world." Using deception, theft, and violence, they have achieved more toward this goal than any rulers in human history.

However, the Information Age is quickly derailing their plans. The immorality of their system, and those who serve it, has become nearly impossible to hide. Awareness and resistance are growing...tragedy is yielding to hope.

Must read for everyone

Anyone who is even a tad bit skeptical of the legitimacy of the government should listen to this.

Everybody Should Be Reading This Book.

All our government officials from the top down, should be reading this book and believing every word that is mentioned in this book. I know that this post will be sorted through, and never allowed to be seen by any high official in government. But if you do happen to stumble upon this post, someone that has more power than the president, needs to seriously look into this corruption and find a way to get it stopped. This country is way too precious to be destroyed by a select few.

Finally Understand Real History!

I was somewhat aware of the information contained in this book, but had never had it brought together so meaningfully, or accurately. It should spread faster than war, as it explains who is responsible for meaningless war, death and impoverished countries.

Can't Wait!

This was great! It tied in the Creature from Jekyll Island and Tragedy and Hope. I cannot wait until 201 is released.

This book changed my world view more than other

I've always learned towards smaller government, but kept the door open for some social programs. I now see clearly that all central programs are being used as a trojan horse for central control and ultimately authoritarianism. Unfortunately many well-meaning people are being swept up into believing worldwide environmentalism, food programs, medicine, etc are going to help people, when in the end they will be used for full spectrum control.

Blatant Disinformation

I purchased this book/audiobook after having completed half of Dr. Quigley’s “Tragedy and Hope ” (will be referred to as T&H hereafter). I’ve spent the past year or so reading T&H casually and intended for this book to give me a rundown on the entire book. Well, to my surprise, this book was not a summary of T&H as claimed. The author spouts the typical right-wing nonsense. The author spends 30% of the book giving disputing Quigley’s information, 20% actually expanding on Quigley’s info and the remaining 50% giving his own political views. As you can see, very little time was devoted to summarizing Quigley’s work. The nail in the coffin for me, which confirmed the author to be another disinformation agent, was the fact that even though Quigley talked extensively about the gold standard being a banker’s operation, the author not only defends, but recommends going onto a gold standard to solve our monetary problems!!!! The author tries to cover his “rear end” by making it seem that Quigley didn’t fully understand the banker’s intention and their use of gold but this is nonsense. Authors such as Eustace Mullins, Stephen Zarlenga, Ezra Pound, Bill Still and many others who have seriously studied monetary history and reform have all concluded without room for doubt that the gold standard is a banker’s operation. It is typical of right-wing types who are nothing but disinformation agents to completely disregard this evidence concerning gold. Another tell-tale sign of these types is that they encourage anti-government views. Again, anyone who’s done any homework will tell you that smearing government and encouraging the citizenry to distrust government is a banker’s tactic. The elites (or The Network, as Quigley put it) love to encourage citizens to give up on government because they know that should citizens become informed of what is going on and take control of government, they stand to lose a lot. So, they convince us to distrust government and that nothing we do can make a difference. The right-wing apologists for the elites, who front as reformers, advocate not only anti-government sentiment but also solutions that will do nothing but shift power back to the banking elites. So, my advice is to avoid this one and read Quigley’s actual work along with the other authors whom I mentioned. These right-wing guys are blatant liars...this author along with guys like G. Edward Griffin.

An Introduction to the Great Conspiracy

No sane human would voluntarily dissect the original 1,300 page monstrosity intended for Ivy League intellectuals. This is the layman's breakdown. Voting, taxes, war and debt were all a lies sold to you by a highly organized network of psychopaths. We cannot have a world government run by these same psychopaths because it will inevitably lead to the largest genocide in human history.

Will you take the red pill or the blue pill?

This is an introduction to Professor Carol Quigley's famous (and infamously LARGE) tome, 'Tragedy and Hope'. At 1300 plus pages, Quigley's work is likely too much for most people to read. Wink-wink-nudge-nudge - no one has committed it to audio format, yet. So, this is the next best thing. Plummer does a great job, is a great writer, and is on the right path. There clearly is something besides "fate" operating at the highest levels of world governance that most humans will never know about. There are far too many coincidences for it to be anything but planned. This work is eye opening and frustrating. Knowing myself, I doubt that I will go on to attempt Quigley's work, I think I get the gist. I've read and listened to several other books concerning the subjects upon which Quigley (and Plummer) sheds light. My priorities have changed - I am going to buy land in Texas and hole up the family to wait out the inevitable. One last thing, the narrator, Joshua Mackey is okay (emphasis like the new AT&T commercials, where such and such is just okay). Mackey tries too hard in some places to emphasize certain words or phrases. Perhaps that won't bother most. I didn't care for it. In a lot of sections, especially toward the last chapters, he seemed to channel a 1930's gangster character, and expected him to start saying stuff like, "Alright, see, we're gonna knock off that bank, grab some chippies at the gin joint, and clip some G-men with our roscoes. By the time we end in the caboose, we'll be hittin' on all eight, see?" It got annoying. Great book. Great writer, So-so narrator. But the meaning behind it all is very IMPORTANT - take the blue pill and learn what's going on, if it's not already too late.
