What do history's most notorious despots have in common with many of the flag-waving, patriotic politicians of our day? Both groups rise to power through the exploitation of fear, which has become a societal plague. There have been widespread casualties. We need an antidote. Feardom offers its readers a much-needed immunization.
For there was one Gadianton, who was exceedingly expert in many words, and also in his craft, to carry on the secret work of murder and of robbery; therefore he became the leader of the band of Kishkumen.
Therefore he did flatter them, and also Kishkumen, that if they would place him in the judgment-seat he would grant unto those who belonged to his band that they should be placed in power and authority among the people; therefore Kishkumen sought to destroy Helaman. (Helaman 2:4-5, emphasis added)
Interviewer: “We know that a lot of Bonesmen have gone on to positions of great power…”
Alexandra: “That’s what the Skull and Bones’ purpose is—to get as many members as possible into positions of power.”
Hmmm, sound familiar? That sounds exactly like the above cited verse in the Book of Mormon. The Skull and Bones society isn’t the only organization, however, that does this. The following are links to partial membership rosters of a few organizations widely believed to be secretive, conspiratorial, and anti-American government:
- Skull and Bones
- Council on Foreign Relations / Trilateral Commission
- Project for the New American Century
Notice any big names? It’s astounding how many top government officials belong to these organizations. Next time the President “taps” somebody for a high-level position, google their name and see what other organizations they’ve already been “tapped” into. Chances are high that they’ll be in one of these organizations already.
And behold, in the end of this book ye shall see that this Gadianton did prove the overthrow, yea, almost the entire destruction of the people of Nephi. (Helaman 2:13)
