4.0 out of 5 stars Eloquent, Intelligent and Insightful, 13 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: How to Become a Hero (The Hero-God Series Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
I'm not sure who the writer really is or if he genuinely represents the Illuminati (as per Mike Hockney - or if perhaps they are one and the same person). Regardless, the content is highly eloquent, well researched and draws from many sources (mainly Jungian psychology but includes analogies with philosophers such as Nietzsche). The actual hero programme refers to integrating aspects of our unconscious as per Jungian psychology however is not a complete "how-to". The discussions range from personal shadow projections to those of entire races, countries and religions.

I found all the observations refreshing, relevant, modern and enlightening at times. The movement he represents appears to be UK-based (at least for the author) and is quite vocally anti-establishment (old-world order of power elites, dynasties, monarchies, etc). Their movement is Gnostic (world created by Demiurge) and vehemently anti-Abrahamic.

The core message is that we are all mind-controlled slaves in thrall to old-world power structures. The message of salvation is to topple Abrahamic religions, God, government and old-world power structures and create a new world based on a meritocracy and a race of enlightened Nietzschean supermen that never have to slave again. (A nice concept but someone still has to sweep the streets and empty the bins, so there will always be hierarchies, you'd just have semi-enlightened bin-men). The other alternative is de-centralisation and local self-governing self-sustaining communities with minimal central government - where everyone must take a role or play a part in the community. This is the only way to eliminate central power and the waste of large squandering governments and centralised mind-control.

Quite how their Utopia would occur is moot - all new structures run the risk of simply replacing the old power structures for new ones. You would also need to be able to fully infiltrate existing power structures (hacking and wikileaks are mentioned). Anyway - for the price of a coffee I will probably read a few more of these books and see where it's leading.
