The Occult Technology of Power (OTP) is one of those sleeper-cell books, a book ahead of its time, more-or-less self-published by a disillusioned early Libertarian/libertarian activist.  The author/publisher and I, with a handful of other young (it turns out naive) idealists, cofounded the Libertarian Party of Michigan... I believe it was 1971, '72 at the latest.

I say sleeper-cell because most in our milieu of those days were asleep when it came to understanding who actually stood behind the curtain of the Leviathan State.  It didn't matter; we were going to crush the little commie pukes no matter what... and in record time.  When OTP was issued, I think it meant something to about three really radical left-wing, hippie libertarians[1] living in a rundown flat somewhere in Long Beach, CA. 

The movement I had entered was mainly of the right, initially Barry Goldwater libertarian-conservatism then leading through Ayn Rand rational-egoist individualism.  We saw leftists as our supreme enemy, representing in extremis the Communist collectivist dictatorships of the time.  By virtue of our own ideological alignment with private property and free enterprise we were largely oblivious to corporate-state corruption.  Corporations were good guys in white hats, not evil beneficiaries of bonecrushing government franchise.

As arguments and protests emerged during the (60s and 70s) antiwar movement against the military-industrial complex and the ruling class, I admit to shamefully siding with what actually composed the police/corporate-state I so loathed.  Indeed, only relatively recently I understand how that state and its corporate and banking Mob have established frightening domination over the individual.

This little book, OTP, is probably the most succinct statement of who "they" are.  Who rules, who pulls the strings, who picks the winners, who precipitates the wars, who commits the treachery... most important, who steals the wealth?!!  The Transcriber locates the dead center of maximum political-economic sleaze in America and the world and delivers a smartbomb on target.

You read this book you understand the contrived conflict between right and left.  You will know whose purposes it serves to have defenders of liberty hate those who question concentrations of power.  As we fight among ourselves on higher-level issues—immigration, wars, terrorism, education, taxes, etc.—we leave the fundamental premise of state coercion intact... and make no mistake, the state we're talking about is the Cartel with a capital C. 

You see the role of the government schools:

A general state education is a mere contrivance for molding the people to be exactly like one another; and as the mold in which it casts them is that which pleases the predominant power in the government—whether this be a monarch, a priesthood, an aristocracy, or the majority of the existing generation—in proportion as it is efficient and successful, it establishes a despotism over the mind, leading by natural tendency to one over the body.—John Stuart Mill

You see the role of the central bank and taxes:

As early as ancient Babylon and India, central banking, the art of monopolizing the issuance of money, had been developed into a perfect method for looting the general public.  Even today many bankers copy the traditions of the earlier exploitative priesthoods and design their banks to resemble temples! Defenses of central banking are simply part of the deception that lies at the heart of all power elites.—page 17

The book conveys the instruction of a man in full, under auspices of his father, the leader of the Dynasty.    (Speculation is the father-son pair is patterned after John D. Rockefeller, Jr. and David Rockefeller.  Considering the Rockefeller family through banking, business, foundations, and other holdings controls trillions of dollars in human wealth, the pattern is apt.)

The father introduces his soon-to-be Supreme Financial Politician (finpol) successor to the mysteries of how the Dynasty—by the way, the Rockefeller dynasty is the predominant component in what I typically call the Cartel, or sometimes the Beast or the Empire—exercises its nearly complete control of society.

It's a quick read, showing astonishing and timely insight into the Big Universal Problem (BUP) that ails us.  I wish the Transcriber had covered the income tax a bit more thoroughly and that he would have elaborated on the controlled-media propaganda machinery.  Quibbles.

This is a book that demands to be resurrected and handed out to your friends and acquaintances in all walks of life.  We've reached a point where increasing numbers of real people intuitively realize what's going on; OTP will cement that knowledge. 

Interestingly, the Ron Paul Nation phenomenon is a direct result of people being "mad as hell and not about to take it any more."  Dr. Paul is a strong advocate of schools freed from state compulsion and a firm opponent of the Federal Reserve System and its corollary interest-earning tool, the income tax.  It is not difficult to see why the Cartel politicians and media are excreting Frisbees for fear the RP message may catch on: they'll all wind up in the dustbin of history along with Divine Kings.

[1] The prototype of libertarians receptive to the ruling-class-expose OTP message was Samuel Edward Konkin III (1947-2004), author of the New Libertarian Manifesto (1983) and founder of the Agorist Institute and the Movement of the Libertarian Left.
