5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely chilling., 25 Mar. 2003
By A Customer
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The New Rulers of the World (Hardcover)
Reading this book left me in a state of shock.
Like a lot of people, I always thought that 'we' were the good guys, and that our governments, while not whiter-than-white, were at least a fairly light grey. But the evil (there's no other word) perpetrated by our leaders, as described in this book, is of a type that I thought only existed in movies and the heads of conspiracy lunatics.
But Pilger outlines it, documented fact by documented fact.
I never cry, but I lost count of the times I wept as I read this book. For me, it's been a totally life-changing experience. The world I thought I knew has been turned totally upside down, and I'm left with the challenge of how to integrate this knowledge and DO something about it.
I'll end this review, because if I really start writing about the book, I won't know where to stop. But if you live in the Western World, you MUST read this book and discover what atrocities are being carried out in your name (and financed by your taxes). And it's a grave shock to find out that by purchasing products that are household names, you're helping to create a living hell for people who are already poorer than we can begin to imagine.
The book is very readable (and re-readable). I recommend it more highly than anything else I've read for years.

Jesus christ, I didn't think we had religious Tea Party nutters over here in England. Now my world really has been turned upside down.

To say nothing of the genocide of the white race. As a black man I am astonished that white people celebrate immigration though it can only lead to their extinction. As for Pilger, I think white 'liberals' like him must get some kind of egotistical thrill out of hating their own. Great point about abortion. And I love the word 'indominably'. Whatever does it mean?

Most white Christian Englishmen 'celebrate immigration' rather as the Zulu celebrated joining the British Empire. The one genuine exception I know is a multi-millionaire farmer who'se entire workforce are Russian/Ukrainian. He swears by them, telling anyone who will listen how they work harder for less than British workers. Knowing the paltry wage he pays I can quite understand his reasoning BUT, looking to the bigger picture; I fear for the future stability of our society. Wages are so far out of balance with prices that millions of our fellow citizens cannot earn enough to feed/house a family, while short-sighted grasping employers are prepared to aid/assist the settlement of our homeland rather than pay their working-class brothers a decent wage. The result is a needless but ever escalating Welfare bill which all Governments are finding ever more difficult to pay. If/when the money runs out, the Capitalist West may well suffer a sudden collapse into bankruptcy/social chaos similar to that already endured by the Communist East.
