Jekyll Island BookThe Jekyll Island Book
History behind'The Beast of Jekyll Island', the Anti-Fed Conspiracy theorem Bible
It is the kind of plot theorem that is so all-embracing that it declares the root of all contemporary US war, depressed, booming economy and (most importantly!) the deepest, best-kept mysteries of global finance. And, if you go along with this theories, you owe a book above all else. The 600-page book The Creature from Jekyll Island, authored by eager conspiracist G. Edward Griffin, is one of the most powerful and best-selling papers driving this story.
Based on decades-old theory about the founding of the Fed and its involvement in atrocities (financial or otherwise), the book soon became a bestseller. She tells of a clandestine gathering that took place on Jekyll Island in 1910, a route of sandy beach and wonderful scenery off the Georgian coastline.
This was an exlusive meeting of US finance and politics to blow the crap on it. riffin is filming this journey to jekyll island as the birth place of the heinous, fearsome, all-powerful bank system, which every respectable u.s. citizen should have demolished immediately. Maybe it's not surprising that this kind of thing has prevailed in the politics community.
At the time when Glenn Beck, the seller of hipsters clothes, had a show on Fox News, he presented Griffin in one of his Friday sequences and suggested the "fascinating" book to the audience: This book, which Beck and Dr. Paul so generously support, is, to put it mildly, full of daring assertions and rattling extrapolation that requires a willing abandonment of unbelief.
Jekyll Island's creation is sold as "the most important book on global events you will ever read". Like so many common plot theory, the disastrous mistake in Griffin's analyses and restless scaremongering is that it captures a granule of reality and turns it into a mine of absolutely ridiculous nonsense.
Griffin would certainly and most strongly oppose the description of his work as such. Yes, ad hominema assaults on the writing work of anyone are to be overruled.
