“I am afraid the ordinary citizen will not like to be told that the banks can, and do, create money…And they who control the credit of the nation direct the policy of Governments and hold in the hollow of their hands the destiny of the people.”—Reginald McKenna, British Chancellor of the Exchequer, as quoted in Tragedy and Hope

Many have wanted to read Carroll Quigley’s book Tragedy and Hope because it is so chalked full of information about the New World Order but upon seeing it have seconds thoughts. Carroll Quigley’s original book is over 1300 pages. Most people today don’t have time to sit down and read that information even if they wanted to. Many have tried, and failed. I’ve read the original book. For some reason dry technical information is easy for me to digest but I know many can’t. Even then it took me months to read and by the time I was done I had forgotten more than I had learned. If you want to try you can get the entire book here.

Enter Tragedy and Hope 101.

This book is like the Cliff Notes for the voluminous original. Joseph Plummer covers the topics in a way that won’t put you in a coma and won’t take months to digest while at the same time holding your attention. To be honest, I wasn’t fond of putting this book down when I had to go and do something else. Needless to say I still finished it in 4 days. The writing style is scholarly yet easily understood by non scholarly minds. Plummer gives great insight as to what is really going on in our world today and who is really in control. Little doubt will be left in your mind by the time you’re done reading this book that what you’ve been told your whole life is nothing more than a lie.

What makes this book shine in my mind and what sets it apart from the rest is the fact that Plummer gives solutions where others only tell you the problems and leave you in desperation. Not only does he offer solutions, but they are easy to implement, so much so that almost everybody can take part in the resistance, and this will be crucial if we want to defeat the network.

I must issue a warning however. If you are a typical American who thinks your government is legitimate and has your best interest at heart, make sure you are seated and prepare for a very rude awakening.

Chapter layout is as follows:

CHAPTER 1: Democracy
CHAPTER 2: Power Behind the Throne
CHAPTER 3: The Network “Recovers” America
CHAPTER 4: Money: The Ultimate Instrument
CHAPTER 5: The Main Problem—The Main Solution
CHAPTER 6: Rulers Represent Themselves
CHAPTER 7: Sink the League—Raise the Fascists
CHAPTER 8: False and Designing Men
CHAPTER 9: Realpolitik Revisited

This book carries a weighty endorsement with the introduction written by none other than G. Edward Griffin, author of The Creature From Jekyll Island, coming to a crescendo by stating “Be forewarned. The journey you are about to begin is not for the fainthearted. If you are comfortable with the illusions that currently pass for political reality, this book is not for you, because, once you discover how the deceivers perform their magic, the comfort of ignorance is no longer possible. Once the bell is rung, it cannot be unrung. The bell starts ringing on the next page.”

This is however not a book that endorses Carroll Quigley’s or the network’s point of view. Quite the opposite. Joseph Plummer is quick to disagree with some of Carroll Quigley’s conclusions when the need is warranted. One must realize Carroll Quigley was sympathetic to the networks way of thinking. Here is just one example:

“On page 938 of Tragedy and Hope, Quigley draws a flawed conclusion. He assumes that J. P. Morgan, Rockefeller, Carnegie, etc., must have lacked control over the government in 1913. If they had more power, he suggests, they would have stopped the federal income tax from becoming law. Like so many others who’ve accepted the alleged purpose of the income tax, Quigley fails to put two and two together: an income tax that is paid into a system that the Network controls only serves to strengthen the Network’s position. It creates another massive flow of other people’s money to tap into.”

Here are just a few snippets from the book to intrigue you.

“Sadly, few Americans realize that the United States did not have a permanent personal income tax prior to 1913.11 Think about that for a minute…America went from being a sparsely settled nation of wilderness in 1776 to the most prosperous and arguably most powerful nation on the planet without an income tax. Contrary to the popular canard, a lack of income tax does not mean your country is doomed (socially, politically, militarily, and economically) to the global status of Somalia.”

“This is one of the most common tactics employed by the Network for manipulating public opinion. It will point to an injustice (often caused by the Network itself), whip up an emotional firestorm, and, at the peak of hysteria, offer a solution that furthers its own agenda.”

“As powerful as any one individual might have been or currently is within the Network, the instruments and tactics are where the real power lies. Men eventually die; instruments and tactics can live on indefinitely.”

“But what if our so-called representative government is all a carefully crafted illusion? What if the Network chooses the candidates that we get to vote for? What if the Network’s “experts,” not the figureheads placed in official positions of power, are the ones who ultimately determine government policy? What if both political parties, right and left, are controlled by the exact same people?”

Personally, I can’t recommend this book hightly enough. I give it a 6 out of 5 star rating. A quick, simple read that will leave you wondering where this book has been all your life. Every Single American over the age of 12 ought to read and re-read this book… No, every single Human. It’s that important.

So download it to your kindle device today or buy the physical copy to support the author.

If you absolutely, cannot afford the $10 for the kindle version of the $14 for the physical copy the entire book can be downloaded for free at
