No one else had that trouble. The gist was laid out quite clearly in the foreword:
“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. Hate multiplies hate, violence multiplies violence, and toughness multiplies toughness in a descending spiral of destruction....The chain reaction of evil -- hate begetting hate, wars producing more wars -- must be broken, or we shall be plunged into the dark abyss of annihilation.”
—Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. (1929-1968)
In every person’s lifetime, I hope there comes a time when they feel they must do what they can for the betterment of man. Today, I find myself at that crossroads, endeavoring to impart some of my gathered wisdom to those who seek answers and to those who seek to know more.
There have always been wealthy, erudite and powerful men who have wished to rule the entire world—secure in the notion that they would know what was best for the masses. In the past, conquest has failed to achieve this, due to the resulting outrage and awareness of the enemy. In our present time, there is a group of such men who are trying a subtle but effective way to rule. This is to gradually infiltrate and delude the masses into accepting their ideas for a New World Order, and the subjugation of our Constitutional Republic. Such subtle gradualism—along with “media events” ad nauseam, such as the OJ Simpson Trial, the Y2K Bug, Princess Diana, the War on Terror, and the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth—is being used effectively to obscure the real issues and change the public focus. Few people will therefore be aware of what is really happening in this country.
In this book, I hope to lay the ground work for your own due diligence into the forces at play here. They have been at this for a very long time, and circumstances like 9/11 have provided them with an opportunity to accelerate their plans. What is at stake is nothing short of our Constitution and the civil liberties that go with it.

And in the first chapter:
The purpose of this book, then, is to revisit the history of American foreign policy and the wars that followed. We will be examining issues that may make you wonder “What on earth has this to do with today.” But I can assure you, when we reach the end of our journey; you will see that everything we cover has a direct relevance to today and, in particular, to the war on terrorism. Perhaps we can learn from those lessons of history, and somehow find a foreign policy for the new century that might unite most of us, and ensure that America endures as the greatest republic in history, rather than just another fallen empire.
