It is well-known that most US politicians, including its Presidents, have been Freemasons. It suits the higher echelons of Freemasonary that outsiders view their organisation as merely a boring dining club for middle aged businessmen and civil servants, but the truth is that at the high levels of initiation, Freemasons are concerned to influence the course of history, not only by conspiracy to bring secret political pressures to bear, but also by means of the occult. The author reveals that Washington DC's layout and architecture was devised according to occult principles and that it is in effect a magical spell set in store. He reveals, too, the destiny of the United States as it is conceived by these Freemasons and its future role in world history.
