If there is one book you should read in your entire life, this is the one. Think you're a free person? Wrong, the banks run by the global elites run the world. They decide who you vote for, what cloths you wear and what you eat, and how you think. The rockefellers, morgans, and other super rich set up the progressive income tax in 1917 (per the communist manifesto), not to force Americans to "pay their fair share," but to destroy their competition. Before imposing an unConstitutional progressive ...more
Though somewhat dated, this book remains a classic in exposing the new world order conspiracy. This blows the lid on the international financiers schemes, plans (much of which have come to pass since this book was published) and shows how they instigated and financed communism. Allens take was that the global elites were going to mold the world into a borderless communist state with no sovereign nations or people. In retrospect they have shifted gears a little, now fusing the worst elements of c ...more

Okay, here's the deal. I didn't really love this book. Actually I really hated it. BUT I think that it deserves 5 stars for the truths that it teaches. The author didn't write this book to be cool or to gain the praises and accolades of the world. He wrote it because he came across a scary truth and the evidence to back it up and felt a deep responsibility to share the truth of what going on "behind the scenes" in politics. Every American should read this book. Ezra Taft Benson, former Secretary ...more
Reading this book ruined my life. I was happy being blissfully unaware of all of this stuff. It was well written and well researched.

Reading this book is like that scene in the Matrix. If you want to remain unaware, take the blue pill and pass on this book. If you want your eyes open take the red pill and read this book. But there is no going back once you take the red pill.

This is a good introductory book on the subject of economic and political conspiracy but I think "The Creature from Jekyll Island" by G. Edward Griffin (1994) is a better work. That book has a lot of quality detail, analysis and perspective that this book lacks. It also outlines even more important and consequential conspiracies than Gary Allen exposes.

Since I was already knowledgable about most of Allen's revelations, what I found most interesting was his description of what conspiracy is, how

In October 2008 private Wall Street banks started receiving taxpayer bailouts which now total over $23 trillion (and counting). This is not by accident. The word "conspiracy" has gotten a lot of bad press; it is an idea which has been targeted for ridicule. It is a word we have been conditioned to recoil from. We have been trained to reject anything called a "conspiracy" instinctively, without considering the merits of the information being presented. In most aspects of our lives, we recognize i
The title of this book initially made me nervous, and I would have never picked it up except that someone recommended it to me and it has this endorsement from Ezra Taft Benson:

"I wish that every citizen of every country in the free world and every slave behind the Iron Curtain might read this book."

This is probably the most enlightening book I've read lately, especially in view of the current political race. It's tot
Richard Kelly
As far as political conspiracy goes this book is fairly solid. Assuming that all the research pans out when investigated it lays down a very convincing idea that our country has been on the march towards socialism for that last hundred some odd years.

The problem with this book is the fact that it was written 40 years ago. Unless you have a real strong grasp on what was going on in 1971 parts of it can quickly fly off the radar. But, if you have a decent understanding of where the world was at t

Recommended to Michael by: Robert Anton Wilson
This book reflects the ideas of the "other" sixties Counter-culture: the one that crystallized around the John Birch Society and anti-Communism. Allen avoids tipping into areas of racism or hate speech, but remains firmly entrenched in right-wing wackiness and unreality. His argument, made on page 21 in all-caps is that Communism is "AN INTERNATIONAL, CONSPIRATORIAL DRIVE FOR POWER ON THE PART OF MEN IN HIGH PLACES WILLING TO USE ANY MEANS TO BRING ABOUT THEIR DESIRED AIM - GLOBAL CONQUEST." Got ...more
My favorite book on globalism. Elucidating.
This is right-wing lunacy at its best. Clearly, the author had ties to the John Birch Society. It was written at the height of the New Left which of course scared the daylights out of Birchers and others of similar philosophical perspective. The author claims that the Rothschilds, a prominent European Jewish family, were conspiring with Communists to enslave the world. The lesson of this book: All freedom-loving people must read any extremist tome with skepticism, and challenge the author with t ...more

So I took the plunge and read it. So glad I did. It was only the beginning of opening my eyes to what's really going on. It is an quick read, you can get thru the entire book in a couple hours. But it is full of so much truth and documented facts that you simply can't deny what has happened to o

I'm currently reading None dare call it conspiracy while listening to Karl Marx communist manifesto. They dove tail nicely together and are helpful in getting the full scope of governmental control and the mass of PID so eagerly choosing what's socially acceptable and so afraid to buck the system. The medias control over the mass and the pop culture. We are moving so rapidly to socialism nearer yet to communism.

lol. If you know this book, then you'll understand why I don't intend to write a review on it. "They're watching." :)

Seriously though, I picked it up because it had an endorsement on the back by "Ezra Taft Benson, former Secretary of Agriculture," which made me pay attention.
Some crazy stuff in this book. Some of it I was already familiar with, some not. Still plenty of relevancy 40 years later, although some points are undoubtedly outdated. Fast read.

Chapter 2: "And if one takes all the lies of Communism and boils them down, you will find they distill into two major lies out of which all others spring. They are: (1) Communism is inevitable, and (2) Communism is a movement of the downtrodden masses rising up against exploiting bosses." ... 99%. anyone?

Like some other vintage, anti-communist, hysterical conspiracy writing I've read, None Dare Call It Conspiracy starts harmlessly enough. The first half of the book is merely irrational. I assume this is to eliminate open-minded readers who are naturally predisposed to disagree and bore those looking to have some laughs at the tinfoil hat crowd's expense. For those who make it past the half-way point, Gary Allen takes the gloves off and goes the kind of full-blown, bat shit loco crazy you are exp ...more
Dauphin Publications
The 2013 special edition of None Dare Call It Conspiracy is a quick read, but jam-packed with information that is truly eye-opening. Author Gary Allen gives you an unobstructed view into the inner workings of the government, and reveals who the true decision makers are and their real motives for being in politics. Once your eyes are open, it is impossible to shut them and continue living in ignorance. This book is honest, and pulls back the curtain to reveal the high-profile puppeteers who are p ...more
One the one hand, I felt like I should have read this with a tin foil hat on my head. On the other hand, I feel like I have discovered the Glenn Beck to English dictionary.

I didn't know much about The John Birch Society or Producerism before reading this book. I finally understand some of those nonsensical signs that you see at tea party protests.

The thing is that there is some truth woven in, which means that some of those people are very much on the same page when it comes to the idea that de

Recommended to Vheissu by:
The craziest thing about this nutty book, bible for the Birchers as it was, is that some people associated with today's Tea Party movement have notions to the right of Allen.

Read "None Dare Call It Conspriacy" first and then read:
The Paranoid Style in American Politics And Other Essays by Richard Hofstadter Richard Hofstadter by Richard Hofstadter.

You'll see what I mean.

I read this interesting book many years ago. I remember that it was impossible to find a copy of it in major bookstores. In some ways the book reminded me of the information in Behold a Pale Horse.
Jenny Tibbetts
This book gives you an inside look at how our government and other governments around the world work. Ezra Taft Benson, former Secretary of Agriculture of the United States and the late Prophet of the LDS Church personally endorsed this book. When Ezra worked in Washington DC it was during a time when a large part of the nation was either still farming or lived in farming districts. This made his position in the administration very powerful for that day in time. So the fact that he had a front r ...more
This book gave me a clear understanding of the conspiracies that I used to think were just theories. My eyes are opened and I can't help but ache for the state that our country is in. I love America and pray for it's protection from evil and designing men in these last days.

It's important to note that this book has never been debunked or disproven. Check out the Rockefeller Files by Gary Allen, as well.

A red scare era conspiracy classic. Short, great read. I think this was the book that originated the concept of the Accidental Theory of History vs the Conspiracy Theory of History (though I would have preferred The Intentional Theory of History)…the idea is that we have been steadily marching in the same direction - toward a larger, more totalitarian state yet we are told there's no grand plan. This author suggests that if there's no grand plan & every action is an accident of history, then ...more
This book was recommended by President Benson in his 1972 general conference address when he was a member of the Quorum of The Twelve Apostles. Some thought that President Benson was a little over the top in his political views. However, in his conference address he pointed out that in the Book of Mormon there was no such thing as a "conspiracy theory" but a "conspiracy fact."

This book discusses the control of international bankers such as the Rothschilds, Warburgs and Rockefellers (all internat
Its conspiracy theory time! I read this at my brother's recommendation - he is heavily influenced in his policital/economic thinking by the Ron Paul/libertarian/conspiracy theorists. The LDS prophet Ezra Taft Benson actually recommended this book in his April 1972 address (interesting that you have to listen to the audio to hear it, the text on the church's website does NOT have it in there -- another conspiracy!).

Here are the pros: I thought his indictment of the Nixon administration was prett

Well-researched book outlining machiavellian plot to unite the entire world under an eventual one-world oligarchy, controling all facets of every "world citizen's" lives ("...we know better than you, what's best for you..."). Basically a heavily-footnoted history text, covering about the last 100 years of plotting and execution by the ultra-rich, including exposure of some of the instruments used to control and influence public opinion and government policy to further their goals.

I gave this book a three star rating because I found it very informative although I disagree with a lot of the material in it. If the book were written poorly I may have given it a two star rating but it is an easy read and written very clearly. Being someone who always identified with the left and liberal policies, I found there was much however I disagreed with. However there also were a few points I do agree with.

First off the author is a right wing John Birch Society member and blames all t
I received this book as a hand-me-down from my parents and knew nothing about it before reading it. The information in this book was somewhat intriguing, but it didn't hold my attention very well. I couldn't retain most of it, and after a certain part I stopped trying to. It just wasn't a rewarding book for me to read. I realize there is an updated version of this book that would be more current, but as it is now this book is over forty years old and certainly felt that way. I wouldn't really re ...more

“{*} Karl Marx was hired by a mysterious group who called themselves the League of Just Men to write the Communist Manifesto as demogogic boob-bait to appeal to the mob. In actual fact the Communist Manifesto was in circulation for many years before Marx' name was widely enough recognized to establish his authorship for this revolutionary handbook. All Karl Marx really did was to update and codify the very same revolutionary plans and principles set down seventy years earlier by Adam Weishaupt, the founder of the Order of Illuminati in Bavaria. And, it is widely acknowledged by serious scholars of this subject that the League of Just Men was simply an extension of the Illuminati which was forced to go deep underground after it was exposed by a raid in 1786 conducted by the Bavarian authorities.” 0 likes
“If you wanted to control the nation's manufacturing, commerce, finance, transportation and natural resources, you would need only to control the apex, the power pinnacle, of an all-powerful SOCIALIST government. Then you would have a monopoly and could squeeze out all your competitors. If you wanted a national monopoly, you must control a national socialist government. If you want a worldwide monopoly, you must control a world socialist government. That is what the game is all about.
