Description

It’s been said that the real hidden hand behind modern civilization has been a series of nonstop wars between various secret societies.

Learn how the French Revolution not only created an octopus-like New World Order which still exists today, but also how intellectuals such as John Locke, Voltaire, and Rousseau inspired it. Thorn explains the role Richard Wagner played in the development of modernism, and how Pablo Picasso’s paintings lead to the rise of multiculturalism, among dozens of other examples.
