Pressestimmen

"Conspiratorialists will drown in new floods of old forgotten material, rationalists will throw this book across the room, then get around to picking it up and reading a little further . . . a thesis that is by turns compelling, cautious, maddening, and intriguing."  —Norman Mailer on Sinister Forces—The Nine
-- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

Synopsis

The roots of coincidence and conspiracy in American politics, crime, and culture are investigated in this examination of the connections between religion, political conspiracy, and occultism. Readers are presented with startling connections between Nobel Prize - winning physicist Wolfgang Pauli, Carl Jung, and synchronicity; serial killers, multiple personality disorder, and demonic possession; and magic, surrealism, and mind control. Not a work of speculative history, this expose is founded on primary source material and historical documents. Fascinating secrets are divulged involving Hollywood icons such as Marilyn Monroe, David Lynch, and Jane Fonda as well as links between the Cotton Club murders, the Bluegrass conspiracy, and the Son of Sam cult. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

HASH(0x9fab2c48) von 5 Sternen Mindbending Worldview Warfare 13. September 2007
Von Review Guy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Rumor has it that Peter Levenda is the author of the 'Simon' Necronomicon and that anyone who reads THAT book is cursed for seven years. I think that book was a bald-faced hoax, but it is fitting that the same author was involved here, because THIS book is genuinely dangerous. If you have any paranoid tendencies, any mental imbalance, you should probably leave the entire Sinister Forces trilogy alone.

In brief, the author argues that "mind-control" (in the form of propaganda, subtle persuasion, psychedelic drugs, terrorism, and...well...mind control) is an essential component of modern politics. And mind control is the same phenomenon the world once understood as witchcraft. We in the modern West may believe we are not susceptible to these irrational compulsive forces but, in fact, we are UNIQUELY vulnerable. Our societies have marginalized and devalued the traditional shamanistic encounter with unreason, and as a result we have a very unhealthy relationship with it. Intelligence operators, in the quest for tools of political influence, have rediscovered shamanistic practices and the forces that underlie them. These forces are "sinister" in a value-neutral sense; they are forces of the "left-hand path" - antinomian and awe-inspiring, but not necessarily evil. In proper context they can be beneficial to the individual and the community. But by implementing these practices alone, stripped of any spiritual significance, we have corrupted them. Both the serial killer and the fascist, he argues, are failed shamen.

Of course, Levenda does not state this explicitly until page 362 of volume III. And, even then, I hesitate to take him at face value; to bury "the point" so deeply within a work like this is audacious. It may indicate that the subject matter is exceptionally subtle and must be teased out with care. It may indicate an intentional esotericism (as Nietzsche put it: "a book for all and none"). Or, it may indicate the active hypnotic manipulation of the reader - a sort of literary "look into my eyes." Here, I would argue, we have all three - and they take almost a thousand pages to fully manifest. And yet, Levenda never loses our attention. Like a fairytale warlock, he charms and coaxes the reader down this dark forest path.

Ok, not "like" a warlock. He IS a warlock, and this is what makes his exposition of political witchcraft so compelling. His approach to the DETAILS of political history is remarkably sober - the text is exhaustively footnoted and bibliographied. But he recognizes patterns in these data that would be apparent only to a serious occultist.

Indeed, some of these patterns are clearly faces in the clouds, but that's beside the point. The 'big picture' is not the main attraction. Read this book for the parade of oddball facts the author has marshalled together. Read it for thrills and chills and extreme thought-provocation. Prepare yourself for suspense, intrigue and intiatory terror on the threshold of spiritual enlightenment. Just be careful to come back in one piece...

HASH(0x9fabf8a0) von 5 Sternen Not Easy Going but AWESOME 9. November 2006

WHEW! This is a complicated book, complicated subject.. imagine layer upon layer, detours here there and everywhere meeting up where you never expected it. Levenda has done a brilliant job going where most of us would never dare.If you think the world is as it seems... think again. And read this book. It is NOT for the dumb, intellectually lazy -- or anyone who scares easily.... An important book.

HASH(0x9fabfac8) von 5 Sternen Coincidences and synchronicity 21. März 2007
Von Cathleen M. Walker - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
This is an excellent book, and should be THE text for American History courses, uncovering as it does the layers of mystery beneath the layers of "history" we are taught to simply accept on faith. Well researched, thoroughly documented, Sinister Forces takes us on a whirlwind tour of current events past and present and shows us how they dovetail, weave and underscore one historical tragedy after another - while at the same time letting us know that there is hope if we are willing to become aware of what is currently being swept under the rug.

I issue two concerns: first, the consistent usage of run-on sentences that make finding the point a treasure hunt in material that is already complex; and second, there are way too many typos for a book of this calibre. I don't fault the author for that, I fault the publisher - and I hope the next printing is treated with more respect.

HASH(0x9fabf9c0) von 5 Sternen not bad 16. Mai 2012
Von Tayter Bill - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I have enjoyed all 3 of his sinister series along with his book on the Nazi. In all the books I have read of this nature they miss things. Critics are correct to say that he is blind over democratic involvement in the issues he addresses. If something happens during a democratic administration, Paper Clip for instance, he ignores that a democrat was president. He seems to think that all of the sinister aspects in politics are republican. This is a flaw in the work, and can be noted and filed away while trying to glean otherwise thought starting information.

Also, spiritually, sense this work touches on spiritual things, I got the impression that the author is coming at this material as a "good witch" who is chronicling those on the shamanistic path who became bad. There is a section in book 3 where he writes about the God of the Old Testament as being evil and that it was the serpent, who gave the key to wisdom, as being the true god. And finally, as in the Matrix movies that are referenced in the work, the first 2 books are better that the third and the third was not able to rise to the anticipation of solving the puzzle laid out in the first 2.

HASH(0x9fabfbb8) von 5 Sternen Endless trip down the Alice vacuum... 31. Mai 2013
Von Chris Wilson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
While reading Peter Levenda's mammoth 2006 book "Sinister Forces - The Manson Secret: A Grimoire of American Political Witchcraft, Book Three," I was reminded of the recent HBO documentary Bobby Fischer Against The World. There was a segment attempting to explain the troubling life of Fischer, America's greatest chess player. Over the course of history, brilliant chess players evidently had a tendency to go nuts. Several theories are provided to explain Fischer's madness, but it appears the nature of the game involving strategies and variations over hours of contemplation causes one to lose touch with reality -- "severe logic preying upon the mind." I had the same feeling when reading Levenda's infinite conspiracies connecting the dots of history. One could become lost within the endless estimations.

Levenda, a New York writer of the occult, is a great intellect and once I began reading his epic tome, I could not put it down. But it flows like a text book, with gray page after gray page published by the obscure Trine Day in Oregon. One could spend years deciphering all of this crap, and I've yet to read Book I or II (Sinister Forces-The Nine: A Grimoire of American Political Witchcraft (Sinister Forces: A Grimoire of American Political Witchcraft) (Bk. 1), Sinister Forces-A Warm Gun: A Grimoire of American Political Witchcraft (Sinister Forces: A Grimoire of American Political Witchcraft)). Apparently Levenda devoted 25 years to this quest, which reads like a demented term paper in need of an editor.

This Bible for conspiracy theorists is a treasure trove of obscure stories that would make terrific horror films, though perhaps none quite as good as The Parallax View. It's also profound paranoia, an almost desperate effort to make sense of the unintelligible. Levenda is a child of the 1960s, having grown up during assassinations, war, Watergate and the birth of New Age trends. Gurus such as Timothy Leary and L. Ron Hubbard were everywhere and Levenda, raised in New York, hung at a local occult bookstore that served as fertile ground. He devotes considerable copy to Charles Manson (The Family), a perverted growth of the era utilizing variations of Hubbard's Scientology and its off-shoot The Process (Love, Sex, Fear, Death: The Inside Story of The Process Church of the Final Judgment). He details Project MKUltra (The Project Mkultra Compendium: The CIA's Program Of Research In Behavioral Modification), an abominable CIA-sponsored program where subjects were fed untold doses of LSD, among other substances, in an attempt to discover if one could reveal secrets or turn into a mindless assassin. It appears this human experimentation, including hypnosis and isolation, involved prisoners and the mentally ill.

Amazingly, this is fact, though most evidence was furiously shredded about the time Watergate broke and President Nixon was running for his life. The project began in the 1950s and, according to Levenda, was inspired by Nazi scientists brought over from Germany. As he's detailed in past books (Unholy Alliance), the Nazis utilized occult practices during their deadly reign. Now we have "Sinister Forces," which claims these same practices are utilized by the U.S. government. Levenda states, none too simply, that Manson's epic crime spree is a microcosm of such practices and just one of several examples of the kind of hocus-pocus the U.S. government uses on a regular basis. There's also a section devoted to the phenomenon of serial killers. Levenda claims they are off-shoots of more primitive cultures where mystics served as spiritual leaders. In today's society, they have no outlet for transformation and thus, Nostradamus becomes Jeffrey Dahmer. I would laugh if not for the troubling numbers of modern spree killers.

As always, there's dots connected with the Kennedy assassinations, an endless trip down the Alice vacuum chasing ghost lights stretching further away. Levenda does convincingly argue Marilyn Monroe, involved with corrupt souls immersed in Cold War/Cuban politics, was murdered for her unstable threats to expose secrets. Officially she committed suicide, and certainly she had a drug problem. Levenda goes on. The Son of Sam murders are connected to a nationwide Satanic cult, itself connected to the Manson Family. Sirhan Sirhan was a product of CIA-sponsored mind-control experiments. Men were assassinated for going on record to say UFOs were real.

And so, are the endless connections between Lee Harvey Oswald, The Manchurian Candidate, Kenneth Anger, Jim Jones, E. Howard Hunt, Gerald Ford, Adolph Hitler, Nixon and Manson truly coincidences, or is the coincidental thread part of an unknown metaphysical occult phenomenon yet to be discovered? Levenda has linked it all in a gigantic soup stirred by mysterious men in black (who supposedly visited Levenda, snapped a photograph and sped away). I would not recommend these leisurely ramblings for the weak minded though, ironically, such souls will barely make it through the first chapter. Perhaps we're better off he's missing a good editor.
