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

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 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

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

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

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."

The author of this book was a Stanford graduate and belonged to the notorious John Birch Society in Orange County. He begins his argument with a false dichotomy, i.e. that there are only two types of history: planned and accidental. He believes that those who have planned history are conspiring against everyone. This book absolutely drips with paranoia.

Many of his examples are outdated, but the mentality is very much with us, including GR members giving this book positive hype today on GR.

Well, I know that use of the word conspiracy usually causes most people to roll their eyes and start to edge away from the person with whom they were conversing.

I get that.

Look I'd simply suggest you read this. It goes way back (40 years) and has stayed in print because some keep...wondering. I must admit as I get older the idea of at least an attempt at some overriding conspiracy seems more and more likely. I mean how long since you've voted for someone you actually strongly support and not "t

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.

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

This was a thought-provoking read. Although it was quite dated, unfortunately much of it is still relevant today.

Some interesting quotes:

“If you have total government it makes little difference whether you call it Communism, Fascism, Socialism, Caesarism or Pharaohism. It's all pretty much the same from the standpoint of the people who must live and suffer under it.”

“FDR once said ‘In politics, nothing happens by accident. If it happens, you can bet it was planned that way.’”

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."

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

It details the fact that you were all sold out before your great grandparents were born....
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

When I found out that President Ezra Taft Benson recommended during his General Conference talk in April 1972 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pJNMc...) that every member needed to read this book, I decided that I had better read it. This book is very informative and pulls back the curtain on Lucifer's plans in these last days. The Book of Mormon warns of secret combinations (see Ether 8:24-26) and this book details some of these combinations. A lot of times these secret combinations are hard le ...more

None Dare Call it Conspiracy is an over-sized political conspiracy pamphlet penned by John Birch Society spokesperson Gary Allen. Allen was a speechwriter for segregationist George Wallace when Nixon defeated him in 1968, and apparently Allen never got over it. The book is designed as a handout (hence the four million copies printed) in a pyramid-scheme hook that has the author recommending handing out copies of his own book as one of the four ways to stop the conspiracy.

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

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:

Yes, it‘s yet another conspiracy theory book about New World Order. Written back in 1972. I gave it a shot and... I don‘t regret – it‘s really worth reading. It‘s not a dumb conspiracy theory book, it‘s a warning to people of USA of Nixonian era about REAL people and REAL organizations, but its warnings are still relevant today, and especially in 2020, before USA president elections.

Written in 1971 it is even more applicable today. It talks about this countries journey into socialism. The tactics our adversaries will take to place us into bondage written back in 1971 are still being used today. However, where they were in the shadows before they are brazenly in the all around us in the light of day. It is an eyeopener of a book. The author provides evidence and backup to his claims (which I like).

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

I listened to the audiobook while reading along in the physical copy and I must say there is a lot of great info in here for such a short book. It holds up great considering its over 50 years old now.

Not knowing the content but recognizing a couple names recommending it on the back, I decided to pick it up. I can't decide if I should give this 2 or 3 stars. The concepts are important but at the same time it was a little outdated and I don't necessarily think all the author's claims can be substantiated.
