The book began with an anonymous donation to the author of an 8-inch package of documents in the early
1980s. Nothing less than the membership list and supporting documents for a truly secret society the Yale Skull and
The late Johnny Johnson, of Phoenix Arizona was the spark that moved me to write first a four-part series and
later, a jumbo volume based on this material. This volume went to several editions with several publishers, even a
Russian edition of 12,000 copies. Probably in the past few years, as many copies have been sold in Russia as in the
America's Secret Establishment has had little publicity, few reviews ignored by mainline distributors yet, has sold
steadily for the past 16 years at a rate of several hundred copies a month.
This activity, in turn, has generated other articles and books by other authors. But my real intent, to generate an
exploration of Hegelian influence in modern America, has not been fulfilled. In great part, this can be attributed to
an educational system based on a statist-Hegelian philosophy, and which has already achieved the "dumbing down"
This disastrous, destructive philosophy, the source of both Naziism and Marxism, has infected and corrupted our
constitutional republic. Much of the blame for this corruption is with an elitist group of Yalie "Bonesmen." Their
symbol of Skull and Bones, and their Hegelian philosophy, says it all, although with typical duplicity, they would
have you believe otherwise.
Hegelianism glorifies the State, the vehicle for the dissemination of statist and materialist ideas and policies in
education, science, politics and economics.
Wonder why we have a "dumbed-down" society? Look no further than the Bonesman troika who imported the
Prussian education system into the U.S. in the 19`h Century. A political philosophy in direct opposition to the
classical liberalism nurtured in 19`h Century British and American history. In classical liberalism, the State is always
subordinate to the individual. In Hegelian Statism, as we see in Naziism and Marxism, the State is supreme, and the
individual exists only to serve the State.
Our two-parry Republican-Democrat (= one Hegelian party, no one else welcome or allowed) system is a
reflection of this Hegelianism. A small group - a very small group - by using Hegel, can manipulate, and to some
extent, control society for its own purposes.
More than that, reflect on their pirate flag. An emblem found on poison bottles, the symbol of the Nazi
Death Head Division in World War Two. Not only did Skull and Bones become a major force in drug
smuggling (the Bush and Prescott families in the 1860s), but in true Hegelian fashion, generated the antithesis,
the so-called "war on drugs." This hypocritical policy maintains the price of drugs, controls supply, and puts
millions in jail while the gainers, in great part, are none other than the same "Bonesmen" who pass the laws to
prohibit (Bonesman Taft, 1904).
