"For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places."
This book is addressed not only to Americanists * everywhere, but to all Americans who love their country and who are determined to preserve its blessings for future generations. It is our hope that the book may be helpful not only in arming active Americanists with information heretofore unavailable, but also in awakening those good Americans who are still slumbering. Some of the latter who happen upon this book may, we hope, be sufficiently intrigued by our apparently "paranoid" obsession with "The Conspiracy" to investigate for themselves, become "paranoid" themselves, and join our obsessed army fighting for freedom.
Those who have arrayed themselves in the United States against the forces of collectivism have had to face a multitude of attacks and overcome many obstacles. In most cases it has been quite easy to demonstrate that these hindrances have been engineered and executed by the Collectivist Conspiracy, but such a demonstration has been lacking in the case of one of the most serious of all such hindrances, religious neutralism. It is our thesis that this obstacle, like so many others, has been arranged by conspiratorial forces who have perverted and promoted a religious doctrine for this very purpose.
Although the nature of the subject demands that religion be discussed, it certainly is not the purpose of this book to promote any particular religious doctrine. If such were the purpose, the book would emphasize the much more basic aspects of Christianity, not the fringe question which has, in our opinion, been perverted into a weapon of the Collectivists. The crucial question in Christianity is where the soul of each individual will spend eternity, not the details of what may or may not happen here on earth in the near or distant future. Our sole purpose in writing this book has been to help stem the tide against the forces of evil, which most veteran Americanists have come to recognize as Satanically inspired.

*An Americanist is defined as a citizen of any country who works positively and aggressively to promote individual freedom and responsibility, using only those means which are moral, legal, and ethical. He is opposed everywhere by the Collectivist, who works aggressively, using any and all expedient means, to increase the power of a conspiratorial clique of Insiders whose goal is to enslave the world.
