The revelations of Edward Snowden, beginning on June 6, 2013, changed my mind about the
secrecy. The NSA knows exactly who I am and what I am researching, so you might as well too.
I promise that nothing I have learned which can be corroborated has been left out of this book,

learning more about topics that already interest you, or if you are antagonistic to the idea

open mind and to be prepared to synthesize new information into your worldview.
Every day I strive to learn new things and explore new ideas, a fact which has delayed the

would augment this work, please do not hesitate to contact me. I thoroughly enjoy the
'Lifting the Veil' is structured in a way that discusses two startling problems with the current
political system in the United States today, and then jumps to 1946 and works forward in time to

and 'food for thought' questions. The final portion of the book ties together the pieces of
the puzzle and presents potential, non-partisan solutions we can take to affect change.
I ask one thing from you, the reader, before embarking on this journey. Once you finish, if you
believe that this work is important, please resolve yourself to share it with at least two people,
whether they are someone you know in real life, online acquaintances or anonymous recipients.
I have released this book free for a reason. It is the only way this information will spread to a
point where it will reach a 'critical mass'. Once it does, change will be inevitable. Lets endeavor
to make this happen as soon as possible.
Thanks for reading,
Timothy M. Silver
