The Impact of Science on Society, by Bertrand Russell

That's French for "the ancient system," as in the ancient system of feudal privileges and the exercise of autocratic power over the peasants. The ancien regime never goes away, like vampires and dinosaur bones they are always hidden in the earth, exercising a mysterious influence. It is not paranoia to believe that the elites scheme against the common man. Inform yourself about their schemes here.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Bertrand Arthur William Russell received the Nobel Prize for literature in 1950. He is the grandson of Lord John Russell, the British Foreign Secretary during the Civil War. Before going to Cambridge he was educated at home by governesses and tutors, acquiring a thorough knowledge of German and French; and it has been said that his "admirable and lucid English style may be attributed to the fact that he did not undergo a classical education at a public school." Certainly, this style is perceptible in the many books that have flowed from his pen during half a century — books that have shown him to be the most profound of mathematicians, the most brilliant of philosophers, 'and the most lucid of popularizers. His most recent major works are A History of Western Philosophy, published in 1945; Human Knowledge: Its Scope and Limits, published in 1948; Authority and the Individual, published in 1949; Unpopular Essays, that grossly mistitled book, published in 1951; and New Hopes for a Changing World, published in 1952.
