This forgotten gem of a book has recently been put up on Amazon Kindle for free. I would urge history buffs to take advantage of this and read this book published nearly 100 years ago yet more relevant now than ever before. Webster’s personal writing style combined with documentation paint a picture of modern European History that is quite at odds with “standard” histories from the time of Mohamed forward.
Webster sets out to take a survey of the origins of secret societies. Interestingly it begins with the chapter on ‘The Ancient Secret Tradition’ which goes into some detail on the origins of the Talmud and Cabala; this sets the stage and the pattern for Secret Societies. There is also treatment of the Gnostics and Essenes. ‘The Revolt against Islam’ the next chapter which details the various secret societies that burrowed their way into Islamic societies only to be discovered by the Northern European Crusaders who promptly adopted many of the key features of the secret societies of the middle east.
A Depressing continuum in this history is the prevalence of a “chosenist” (my phrase) ideology through the ages. In many ways you could replace the word chosenist with the phrase ‘organized psychopaths’. Basically an “in group” decides that they are to be the masters of the universe, dare I say ‘god like’, and everyone else is just goyim/cattle/dumb masses to be used and abused as necessary.
Pre-existing secret societies are ideal breading grounds for still more secret sects and that is the story behind the Bavarian Illuminati and its role in the French Revolution and beyond. Continental Freemasonry gets tagged with being completely penetrated by other secret societies, while Ms. Webster holds out hope (in the 1920’s) that British Freemasonry can be salvaged. Also interesting was her analysis of the threat of ‘Pan-Germanism’ which today seems sadly laughable, but then (in the 1920’s) seemed more urgent. Nesta finishes up by talking about “The Real Jewish Peril” and frankly goes over the rise of Jewish Political Power and its connection to the rise of the secret societies.
This book is one of those books that if I had read in my 20’s and been able to really talk about the significance behind some of the ideas contained in it, my political journey would have been substantially different than where it ended up going. I place this book alongside Antony Sutton’s Wall Street and the Bolshevik Revolution for its condemnation of progressive/left ideology as a cover for a far more sinister agenda.
Very well written. A fascinating history of organizations that may have had an incredible impact throughout history that may not be remembered by many. From the Assassins of the middle east to the Bavarian Illuminati Nesta Webster goes into impressive detail to explain not only the motives that drove these movements, but also their tactics and their fates. Whether you are a conspiracy theorist or just a history buff who loves to learn about all the strange happenings throughout recorded time, this book will deliver.
A great book to learn and educate yourself on the real people who rule our nation and world. Their plans are frightening and the only way to not let yourself be sucked into their games is to wake up to the lies and books like these are exactly for that. The Author is honest and sites FACTS not theories which can sometimes be simple opinions.
Every person needs to know what is in this book. I bought this even though I prefer to listen to my computer read it to me and I plan to publish it as an audio book on YT. She has done an incredible job including about 50 pages documenting the original sources. You wont be disappointed. Real History !
One of the best English writers providing facts in world's events
omg! Nesta is beautiful! Read this! Font is somewhat small but you'll get used to it. Clear thinking and a perfected sister. A flower in prime.
Very interesting read. This is not a conspiracy theory but a history of known secret societies. A must read for all those who assume they know about who and how runs the world based on popular conspiracy books and youtube videos. This is not an easy read - the book was written in England early in the 20th century, so be ready to use dictionary because it's full of archaic words. Nevertheless, this is a very interesting and worthy of reading and re-reading work.
This book gives you an understanding of how secret societies are what they are. They don't really tell you much about what goes on behind closed doors because they are in fact secret societies. Its a great book to pick up though
