Summary

The information contained in this book contradicts nearly everything you've been led to believe about democracy and "representative government".

Based on the groundbreaking research of respected historian Carroll Quigley, Tragedy and Hope 101 reveals an unimaginably devious political system, skillfully manipulated by a handful of elite, which is undermining freedom and democracy as we know it. The goal of those who control the system, in Quigley's own words, is to dominate "all habitable portions of the world." Using deception, theft, and violence, they have achieved more toward this goal than any rulers in human history.

However, the Information Age is quickly derailing their plans. The immorality of their system, and those who serve it, has become nearly impossible to hide. Awareness and resistance are growing...tragedy is yielding to hope.

Great book - Even ‘normies’ can understand.

Tragedy & Hope by Carroll Quigley is a huge book. I wouldn’t call this an abbreviated version of that, this books just outlines some of the main points and elaborates on some aspects of history that didn’t occur to Quigley.
If you are wishing to understand politics or true history, this book is of use as an introduction.

Essential in understanding international politics

Plummer's aim with this, (making the 1300 page textbòok Tragedy and Hope by Carrol Quigley accessible and distill its unique insights into digestible form), has been accomplished masterfully. I am sure this book is now considered essential reading in a few very select classrooms in a few elite universities.

Eye opener

If you don't want to wake up to the reality we live in, then don't listen this book.
I've always known that those sitting at the center of affairs of our governments are corrupt and mostly unscrupulous, but this book has opened a whole new dimension to this knowledge.
As I said earlier, don't listen to the ebook if you don't want to be confronted with the truth.

Anyone who is even a tad bit skeptical of the legitimacy of the government should listen to this.

Everybody Should Be Reading This Book.

All our government officials from the top down, should be reading this book and believing every word that is mentioned in this book.
I know that this post will be sorted through, and never allowed to be seen by any high official in government.
But if you do happen to stumble upon this post, someone that has more power than the president, needs to seriously look into this corruption and find a way to get it stopped.
This country is way too precious to be destroyed by a select few.

Can't Wait!

This was great! It tied in the Creature from Jekyll Island and Tragedy and Hope. I cannot wait until 201 is released.

Will you take the red pill or the blue pill?

This is an introduction to Professor Carol Quigley's famous (and infamously LARGE) tome, 'Tragedy and Hope'. At 1300 plus pages, Quigley's work is likely too much for most people to read. Wink-wink-nudge-nudge - no one has committed it to audio format, yet. So, this is the next best thing. Plummer does a great job, is a great writer, and is on the right path. There clearly is something besides "fate" operating at the highest levels of world governance that most humans will never know about. There are far too many coincidences for it to be anything but planned.

This work is eye opening and frustrating. Knowing myself, I doubt that I will go on to attempt Quigley's work, I think I get the gist. I've read and listened to several other books concerning the subjects upon which Quigley (and Plummer) sheds light. My priorities have changed - I am going to buy land in Texas and hole up the family to wait out the inevitable.

One last thing, the narrator, Joshua Mackey is okay (emphasis like the new AT&T commercials, where such and such is just okay). Mackey tries too hard in some places to emphasize certain words or phrases. Perhaps that won't bother most. I didn't care for it. In a lot of sections, especially toward the last chapters, he seemed to channel a 1930's gangster character, and expected him to start saying stuff like, "Alright, see, we're gonna knock off that bank, grab some chippies at the gin joint, and clip some G-men with our roscoes. By the time we end in the caboose, we'll be hittin' on all eight, see?"

It got annoying.

Great book. Great writer, So-so narrator.

But the meaning behind it all is very IMPORTANT - take the blue pill and learn what's going on, if it's not already too late.

This book changed my world view more than other

I've always learned towards smaller government, but kept the door open for some social programs. I now see clearly that all central programs are being used as a trojan horse for central control and ultimately authoritarianism. Unfortunately many well-meaning people are being swept up into believing worldwide environmentalism, food programs, medicine, etc are going to help people, when in the end they will be used for full spectrum control.

A Must Read Book for everyone

This book is a summary of Carroll Quigley’s lengthy and detailed “Tragedy and Hope”. The emphasis is on the group of rich and influential individuals who are part of The Network and who control governments, presidents, politicians, and events. Subsequently, they control the media, the education system, and the way people think and act. Their goal is to destroy sovereignty of each nation, to put people into submission, and to design a new world order, which is far away from what the Founding Fathers of America had envisioned. The way they were and are able to control governments is via control of the money system. Think Federal Reserve and the rest of the central banks throughout the world. By keeping nations and people enslaved into debt they have designed the perfect system which allows them to create wars, economic booms and busts, terror attacks, and pandemics. By creating pretexts and fears they drive the masses into a powerful need to demand governments do more to keep them safe. In this way, people voluntarily forfeit their freedoms and sovereignty. No, this is not some sort of conspiracy book as they may want you to think, the book is based on factual data with impressive evidence. It’s easy enough for a teenager to understand. Highly recommend even if you’re not a book reader. Just get the audible version and listen to it on a day trip. You’ll look at the world with different eyes once you’re done reading it.

Finally Understand Real History!

I was somewhat aware of the information contained in this book, but had never had it brought together so meaningfully, or accurately. It should spread faster than war, as it explains who is responsible for meaningless war, death and impoverished countries.

An Introduction to the Great Conspiracy

No sane human would voluntarily dissect the original 1,300 page monstrosity intended for Ivy League intellectuals. This is the layman's breakdown. Voting, taxes, war and debt were all a lies sold to you by a highly organized network of psychopaths. We cannot have a world government run by these same psychopaths because it will inevitably lead to the largest genocide in human history.
