Government & The Law
Warrior Politics: Why Leadership Demands a Pagan Ethos –
Robert D. Kaplan
‘Warrior Politics’ argues that, because we live in
dangerous times, a new kind of leadership is required. The book extracts the
best of the wisdom of the ages for modern leaders who are faced with the
complex life-and-death challenges of today’s world and are determined to win.
Sun-Tzu (‘The Art Of War’) urges leaders to “plan
and calculate like a hungry man.” Machiavelli (‘The Prince’) defines a
policy not by its excellence but by its outcome. Livy (‘My Thoughts On Truth’)
argues “Never mind if they call your caution timidity, your wisdom sloth,
your generosity weakness. It is better that a wise enemy should fear you than
that foolish friends should praise.”
Replete with maxims, warnings, examples from history,
and shrewd recommendations, ‘Warrior Politics’ wrests from the past the lessons
we need to arm ourselves for the present. It offers an invaluable template for
any decision-maker-in foreign policy or in business-faced with high stakes and
inadequate knowledge of a mine-filled terrain. As we gear ourselves up for a
new kind of war, no book is more prescient, more shrewd, or more essential.
So, They Say You’ve Broken The Law: Challenging Legal
Authority – The Lioness
“This little book will give you the information, the
know-how and the tools to successfully challenge alleged Authority in and out
of court. Barristers, QCs and lawyers worldwide have read and discussed the
content with the author and cannot find a legal argument against it. It works.
Use it for defence, appeal or to challenge any claim made upon you.”

Layman’s Guide to the English Constitution – Albert
Albert Burgess, a former special police officer with a
compendious knowledge of the law, argues that England is still ruled by Alfred
the Great through the laws he gave us.
His fascinating and very readable book, ‘Layman’s Guide to the English
Constitution’ (available from www.lulu.com/shop)
– is the story of how the Constitution was formed and how, allegedly, High
Treason has been and is still being committed at the highest levels of
government, particularly with regard to the UK’s membership of the EU.
Public Opinion – Walter Lippmann
‘Public Opinion’, by Walter Lippmann, is a
critical assessment of democratic government, especially the irrational, and
often self-serving, social perceptions that influence individual behaviour, and
prevent real social cohesion.
The descriptions of the cognitive limitations
people face in comprehending their socio-political and cultural environments,
proposes that people must inevitably apply an evolving catalogue of general
stereotypes to a complex reality, rendered ‘Public Opinion’ a seminal text in
the fields of media studies, political science, and social psychology.
‘Public Opinion’ is widely considered to be one of the
top 100 greatest books of all time.
Big Brother Is
The Prince – Niccolo Machiavelli
‘The Prince’ shocked Europe on publication with its
ruthless tactics for gaining absolute power and its abandonment of conventional
morality. Niccolo Machiavelli (1469-1527) came to be regarded as some by an
agent of the Devil.
For his treatise on statecraft, Machiavelli drew upon
his own experience of office under the turbulent Florentine republic, rejecting
traditional values of political theory and recognizing the complicated,
transient nature of political life. Concerned not with lofty ideals, but with a
regime that would last, ‘The Prince’ has become the Bible of realpolitik, and
still retains its power to alarm and to instruct.

The Road to Big Brother: One Man’s Struggle
Against the Surveillance Society – Ross Clark
In this entertaining and highly revealing
account of his attempt to dodge Britain’s 4.2 million CCTV cameras
and other forms of surveillance, Ross Clark lays bare the
astonishing amount of personal data which is hoarded by the state
and by commercial organizations, and asks whom should we fear most:
the government agencies who are spying on us – or the criminals who
seem to prosper in the swirling fog of excessive data-collection?
Are We Being Deceived?
The Assassination of Robert F. Kennedy – William Turner
Shortly after claiming victory in the
California presidential primary, Senator Robert Kennedy walked into
a deadly spray of gunfire. Immediately, the Los Angeles Police
Department concluded that the assassin, Sirhan Sirhan, had acted
alone, the FBI concurred, and the vast majority of the American
people accepted their opinion.
In this compelling book – suppressed on its
initial publication – former FBI agent William Turner exposes
convincing evidence that Sirhan did not act alone.
– What was the virtually apolitical Sirhan’s
– Why, if Sirhan was standing in front of his
victim, were the fatal wounds in the back of Kennedy’s head?
– Why were there too many spent bullets (some
the wrong size) for Sirhan’s gun?
– Did the LAPD discredit witnesses, try to
make them alter their stories, and destroy key records?
– Was Sirhan, in fact, a ‘Manchurian
Candidate’, programmed through hypnosis either to kill Kennedy or
divert attention while others did the job?
‘The Assassination of Robert F.

makes the case that the murder of RFK, and the subsequent police and
government investigations, bear all the hallmarks of the conspiracy
surrounding the assassination of John F. Kennedy and the resulting
Media Control: The Spectacular Achievements
of Propaganda – Noam Chomsky
Noam Chomsky’s classic primer is the ideal
choice for someone wanting to understand the issue of propaganda,
government spin, and how the media are complicit in it. For example,
how did the modern PR (public relations) industry start? Who gave
rise to the way propaganda is used in modern society?
Chomsky demonstrates that, in practice, the
media in the developed world serve the interests of state and
corporate power – despite protestations to the contrary. While
individual journalists strive to abide by high standards of
professionalism and integrity in their work, their paymasters – the
media corporations – ultimately decide what we view, hear and read.
Easy to read and as insightful and
well-researched as any of this remarkable man’s work.

polemicist who combines fluency of language with a formidable
Propaganda – Edward L. Bernays
Edward Bernays is considered as one of the
originators of the modern Public Relations industry. Written in
1928, this was the first book to discuss the manipulation of the
masses and democracy by government spin and propaganda. It also
serves as a dramatic sociological text, full of hard truths about
the reality of modern life. This is the reason why Noam Chomsky
recommends this book so strongly.
Bernays, as one would expect from the most
successful propagandist of the 20th century, has a thorough grasp of
psychology and sociology. His psychological view is based on “Uncle Siggy” – his Uncle Sigmund Freud. The origin of his
sociological views, however, are less clear, but he shares the views
of many liberal thinkers that a real democracy is a danger to be
avoided, and not an ideal to be sought.
Bernays likes to point out the fact that we
like to think that we are “free”, but we are often led by
the “experts”: in business, in politics, in science,
philosophy, ethics. The PR agent serves the interests of the
minority who control the interests and habits of the masses (what
Bernays calls the “invisible Government”), by using the
media industry itself, without its explicit knowledge.
He describes an example from the fashion
industry that is so obvious, that one feels very stupid in not
Weapons of Mass Instruction: A Schoolteacher’s Journey Through the Dark World of Compulsory
Schooling – John Taylor Gatto
John Taylor Gatto’s ‘Weapons of Mass
Instruction’ focuses on mechanisms of traditional education which
cripple imagination, discourage critical thinking, and create a
false view of learning as a by-product of rote-memorisation drills.
Gatto’s earlier book, ‘Dumbing Us Down’ introduced the now-famous
expression of the title into the common speech. This book adds
another chilling metaphor to the brief against conventional
Gatto demonstrates that the harm school inflicts is
rational and deliberate. The real function of pedagogy, he argues,
is to render the common population manageable. To that end, young
people must be conditioned to rely upon experts, to remain divided
from natural alliances and to accept disconnections from their own
lived experiences. They must at all costs be discouraged from
developing self-reliance and independence. Escaping this trap
requires a strategy Gatto calls “open source learning”
which imposes no artificial divisions between learning and life.
Through this alternative approach, our children can avoid being
indoctrinated – only then can they achieve self-knowledge, good
judgement, and courage.

Virtual Government: CIA Mind Control
Operations in America – Alex Constantine
‘Virtual Government: CIA Mind Control
Operations in America’ guides us through the tortuous ways used by
the Nazis to get into power and how after the end of the war – in
collaboration with several US agencies – Nazis infiltrated and
blended into American culture, economy, society and policy. The most
shocking part of this research is how these organizations
manipulated the citizenry.
Operation Mockingbird was created with
the purpose of total control of the mass media, buying newspapers,
magazines, TV channels and infiltrating Hollywood to influence and
control public opinion.
The use of innocent citizens as human guinea
pigs without their knowledge or consent, the torture and brainwash
of adults and children to experiment mind control techniques is the
most scary part of this book that make us think about why so many
people ended alienated, committing suicide or becoming mass
murderers without a reason.
Battle for the Mind – A Physiology of
Conversion and Brain-Washing – William Sargant
William Sargant changed the face of
psychiatry – arguably for the worse. Sargant’s ideas were to
influence the notorious CIA-funded Dr. Cameron. His ultimately evil ‘therapy’ consisted of wiping the mind of its experiences. Sargant
writes, “If a complete sudden collapse can be produced by
prolonging or intensifying emotional stress, the brain slate may be
wiped clean [through excessive Electro-Convulsive Therapy] of its more recently implanted
patterns of behaviour, perhaps allowing others to be substituted for
them more easily.”
As well as being a practising psychiatrist,
William Sargant was a Minister of Religion for the Congregationalist
Church: hence the subtitle, ‘A Physiology of Conversion and
Brain-Washing’ which gives a clue to the fact that this book
combines Sargant’s two great passions, psychiatry and religion.
Away from Sargant, the term employed was ‘depatterning’
rather than the populist ‘brainwashing,’ but the euphemism was no
He was given great prominence because of his
obsession that the West should develop mind control before the
Russians and Chinese did.

Dr. Robert Cialdini is the seminal expert in the rapidly expanding
field of influence and persuasion.
His thirty-five years of
rigorous, evidence-based research, along with a three-year programme
of study on what moves people to change behaviour, has resulted in
this highly acclaimed book.

Why Are They Lying To Our Children? – Herbert
Generations of school children are being
taught that their future is bleak. That poverty, racism and
repression are rampant in our society.
Do you know that your children’s textbooks
– That 66% of the world’s people go to bed
hungry each night
– That the world’s population has been
doubling every 35 years
– That within our lifetime there may be
severe shortages of food, fuel, water – everything we use in our
Herbert London’s exhaustive study exposes the
flagrant and shocking bias of textbooks and offers an antidote for
their mistaken, misguided and misleading prophecies of doom. His
thesis is bold and simple: “Outdated, inaccurate, biased and
absurd claims have entered our children’s texts and, at least for
the moment, nothing is being done about it.”
Programmed to Kill: The Politics of Serial
Murder – David A. McGowan
The spectre of the marauding serial killer
has become a relatively common feature on the media. Reactions to
these modern-day monsters range from revulsion to morbid fascination
– fascination that is either fed by, or a product of, the saturation
coverage provided by print and broadcast media, along with a
dizzying array of books, documentary films, websites, and
The prevalence in Western culture of images
of serial killers and mass murderers has created in the public mind
a consensus view of what a serial killer is. Most people are aware,
to some degree, of the classic serial killer ‘profile.’ But what if
there is a much different ‘profile’ – one that has not received much
In ‘Programmed to Kill’, acclaimed and always
controversial author David McGowan takes a fresh look at the lives
of many of America’s most notorious murderers, focusing on the
largely hidden patterns that suggest that there may be more to the
average serial killer story than meets the eye.
Think you know everything there is to know
about serial killers? Or is it possible that sometimes what everyone
‘knows’ to be true isn’t really true at all?
Psychological Warfare Against Nazi Germany:
The Sykewar Campaign, D-Day to VE-Day – Daniel Lerner
This first full analysis and description of
psychological warfare conducted by the United States and British
armies against Germany was originally published in 1949. It has
since become a standard reference on World War II propaganda. There
are chapters on policy, personnel, media, methods of operation, and
effectiveness, as well as reproductions of typical propaganda
leaflets, charts, and newspapers used against the Germans. For those
who still debate the effects of the Allied ‘unconditional
policy on the German people, Dr. Lerner offers discussion from a
propagandist’s point of view.
The book also contains an essay from the
British side by Richard H. S. Crossman. The author remarks on the
importance of the Sykewar campaign for modern warfare, while William
E. Griffith summarizes developments in the use of propaganda since
World War II – particularly regarding Cold War policies that have
necessitated a shift in the focus of psychological warfare from the
masses to the elites.
The Engineering of Consent – Edward L.
In ‘The Engineering of Consent’, Edward
Bernays – “the father of PR” – defines “engineering
consent” as the art of manipulating people; specifically, the
American public, who are described as “fundamentally irrational
people... who could not be trusted.” It maintained that entire
populations, which were undisciplined or lacking in intellectual or
definite moral principles, were vulnerable to unconscious influence
and thus susceptible to want things that they do not need. This was
achieved by linking those products and ideas to their unconscious
desires. Ernest Dichter, who is widely considered to be the “father of motivational research,” referred to this as
“the secret-self of the American consumer.”
In other words, consumer psychologists have
already made the choice for people before they buy a certain product
by manipulating desires on an unconscious level.
The central idea behind the engineering of
consent is that the public or people should not be aware of the
manipulation taking place.
Two of Bernays’ greatest “successes”
were getting women to smoke by making it a symbol of emancipation;
and helping the water fluoridation campaign in the USA – see, the ‘Engineering Consent’ chapter of
Christopher Bryson’s book ‘The Fluoride Deception’

Puzzling People: The Labyrinth of the
Psychopath – Thomas Sheridan
well-researched as a scholarly work, yet with the immediacy and
accessibility of a layman, "Puzzling People" is a
first-person account of the cheats, the charlatans, the liars, the
neglectful parents, abusive teachers, two-faced politicians and
their Psychopathic Control Grid, tyrannical bosses and colleagues
from hell we have all encountered, including the lying lovers who
use us then lose us in an instant. "Puzzling People" takes
an in-depth look at how the minds of psychopaths work and why, and
focuses on what you can do to survive and thrive and ultimately
escape forever. Delivered in a voice that makes it clear that the
author lives what he writes, "Puzzling People" is an
invaluable field guide to spotting and avoiding entities so
completely lacking in empathy or compassion that they may as well be
counted as a different species entirely to human beings.
Defeated Demons: Freedom from Consciousness
Parasites in Psychopathic Society – Thomas Sheridan
are not human. Psychopaths will leave effusive and flattering
comments on your social network page after you "friend"
them. They will text you numerous times a day and call you on the
phone just to hear your voice before they sleep. They continually
quiz you about your sexual fantasies then enthusiastically promise
to fulfil them on the day you physically meet. Steadily and by
degrees, they build a comprehensive profile of you in order to
create a blueprint for constructing a mirror-perfect soulmate
persona and then... they claim you. They claim your heart, your
energy, creativity, happiness, peace, sanity, strength and, in some
cases, your worldly goods. Then, they begin to destroy you.
Eternally hungry, forever empty, they never stop seeking the one
thing that makes you human and the one thing they will always lack:
The Anvil of the Psyche – Thomas Sheridan
yourself: what is popular culture? How does popular culture, along
with universally accepted ideas of art and creativity, mass media,
publishing and financial constructs, political and social doctrines
come into existence? Are mass social and cultural movements -
coupled with one's personal and social identity perception - always
a natural, turbulent flow of social, economic, philosophical,
spiritual and artistic threads of the collective human experience?
Movements which organically emerge from the underground eventually
to become mainstream cultural and socially accepted consensus? Then,
from these options, we pick and choose objectively from this
smorgasbord of tastes and opinions? That we, as the consumer, the
investor, the voter - including our individual decisions,
affiliations, allegiances and even our emotional attachments - are
all a unique personal experience, determined exclusively by our own
choices when all is said and done? The answer to all these questions
