A Complete Let Down

I bought it because I found out that a bonesman called the journalist and threatened her, making her investigative journalism sound like it would result in "real meat." It was a complete let-down.

Basically, you have two theories about groups like Skull and Bones. In one theory, intelligent, bred people converge, and so it's only natural you see them in the same groups -- they have tons in common. And so the group is just college hijinx, smelly beer soaked carpets, etc. Odd as it may be, it's not threatening. This is basically the view espoused by the author.

The other theory, however, is that these groups are satanic cults, whether knowingly or unknowingly on an individual basis, always knowingly at the highest levels, where efforts are made to usurp authority and control over global events, which effect us all in untold ways. This is the "conspiracy theory." The journalist links the group to the German brotherhood, but with none of the nefariousness of other authors (Rudolf Steiner, Anthony Sutton), making it seem like the conspiracy theory was an overreach. The same thing with Scroll and Key and Wolfshead.

If someone said to me that Alexandra Robbins is part of a disinformation campaign for the Skull and Bones, in which she is to appear to expose all that's bad about Skull and Bones -- without saying anything bad, I would be inclined to agree.
