We have movies like The Matrix that tell us there's another reality beneath the surface that we are unaware of. But these come from Hollywood, and they're harmless, and fun, and meant to entertain us, and entertainment is pretty much everything nowadays, right? And we don't believe that stuff, not really, right?
Here's a book the puts forth the supposition that everything you thought about the last 50 years of USA history is wrong. That the reality in your mind is an illusion. That the institutions and people you have placed your trust in have not been worthy, to put it mildly. That your attention has been misdirected, masterfully, but the likes of the CIA, Big Oil, the Eastern Establishment. I've heard this stuff, you have, too, and shrugged it off. After all, America is basically honest, right, the land of the free, home of the brave, apple pie, baseball, and all the rest.
500 plus pages here. Couldn't put it down. This work, (and Shoebat's God's War on Terror) are two must read's that, well, you "must read."
