One: A secret society dominated by old line American families and new wealth has existed from 1833 to the present day.
Families who are members of this secret society are the Tafts, the Rockerfeller family (Standard Oil), the Payne family (Standard Oil), the Davison family (JP Morgan), and Pillsbury family (flour milling) just to name a few.
Two: The Order has penetrated every segment of American society. Examples include The Executive Branch (George W Bush [43rd President]), Banking Federal Reserve (Pierre Jay [1st Chairman of the New York Federal Reserve), Law (influential law firms), Education, Media, Business, etc.
Three: The Order uses the Hegelian Dialectic (German ideology) process to bring about a society in which the state is absolute; all powerful. (sound eerily similar to the novel 1984.
The Order of Skull & Bones (which is a BRANCH of the secret foreign society) thrives on conflict and is neither "right" nor "left" but has key players in all political spectrum to be able to "win" no matter what happens. This book is a definite read for all those who wish to learn and know that there are very wicked men in America today. This Order is so wicked that Mr. Sutton argues that The Order financed not only Hitler but also helped the Soviet Union build up their technology. It really wouldn't surprise me if others such as Osama Bin Laden have similar ties to this secret organization. But that's just my opinion. Go check the book out for yourself: you may learn something new.
George W Bush: "My senior year, I joined Skull and Bones, a secret society, so secret I can't say anything more."
