Conspiracy Theory behind The Last Degree by Dina Rae

The Last Degree 
When I began The Last Degree, my first novel, I set out to fictionalize the workings of secret societies.   Endless hours of research later, the story got underneath me skin.  I talked myself into accepting New World Order as truth.  The same names kept on repeating: Freemasonry, Bilderberg Group, Bohemian Club, Council of Foreign Relations, Trilateral Commission, Illuminati, UN, and Club of Rome.  These inner circles are suspected of plotting to take over the world. 
Once I combined the research with current events and Biblical prophecy, I magically created a piece of fiction that could pass as prediction.  One year later and more conspiracy continues to fan the flames of my crazy thinking.  Does anybody remember Anders Behring Breivik, the Norwegian Freemason who massacred 91 people last summer?  Was he acting alone like...Lee Harvey Oswald?  Let's not forget the underground compound of the Denver airport.  What's that all about?  And then there's HAARP-is it responsible for Japan's 2011 earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear crisis?  The timing worked out well for the U.S. auto industry.  My new soapbox, the heart attack of 43 year old Andrew Breitbart, has caused major speculation among conservatives.  Shortly before his death he claimed to have incriminating tapes on our Commander-in-Chief.  Please leave a comment about your take on any conspiracy theory.  

Dina Rae,

Research is interesting. The more you do, the more you find so you look some more.

It seems there are way to many connections to rule out the possibility. I believe there is much more going on than most us will ever know.

This is a definite read for me. I've heard and read about the Freemasons. I am always interested in reading about Conspiracy theories.Thanks for sharing and Congrats on your first novel. I'm intrigued about 43 year old David Breitbart.

What a Nice Party!

My favorite conspiracy theory is one that began when I was in grade school.

The topic was dinosaurs.

Have you ever seen one? You cannot convince me that someone hasn't carved all of those stones and planted them for discovery.

This evolved into - Dinosaurs - a big scam to get funding for museums and college students to plant them for the freshmen to dig up.

Thanks for letting me share that.

Never heard that one before! Awesome! The first one that I can remember was back in high school. Richard Gere was the heartthrob and rumors about him getting a hamster stuck up his sphincter and needing an operation surfaced. Dina Rae

I'm not big on conspiracy theories. I believe Lee Harvey Oswald (and Breivik) worked alone. I do wonder about Andrew Breitbart and I wonder about Obama's birth certificate and place of birth. I do like a good, convincing conspiracy in fiction, though. Sometimes, I think it's harder these days to perpetrate a good, real conspiracy...but the at other times, I think it's easier, because so few people seem to care and seem to take things at face value and not ask questions. Good discussion topic!

Sounds like lots of research work on your part, Dina...and intriguing conspiracy speculations better make sure someone knows where you are at all times. They, might be after you now! (Remember the Pelican Brief...)
The Last Degree sounds like a keeper to me
