Robert Kirkconnell carries a broadsword. In Volume II of American Heart of Darkness: Macro Social Evil in the Post JFK Era, he gives us an exclusive, in-depth look at the political assassinations of John F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King, Malcolm X, and Robert F. Kennedy, and he doesn’t stop there. This book has no sacred cows as he rolls out an exposé on the People’s Temple and what makes Reverend Jim Jones the anti-Christ. He equally sheds light on what the government conceals about HIV, narcotics, incarceration, and the war on terrorism. This book is an unequivocal warning to the American populace that a pathocracy in the higher echelons of the political system is pulling the strings and the dangers their actions will bring if we do not stop them.

The investigations contained herein are so explosive that it will make you re-evaluate how you look at the foundations of the system that is supposed to protect you. Can you handle the truth? You are welcome to accept these exposés or throw them out altogether. But then, what Mr. Kirkconnell is saying is worth considering. It takes courage to face some of these revelations, and maybe your life will turn out for the better if you join the crusade for political change. American Heart of Darkness should not be read as a bashing of America. Hating is reactionary and reflexive. This book hopes to renew America as a force of good by inciting readers to think and look at America with a critical eye. It is an eye-opener and it hopes that we shun how the system has conditioned us to think.

After reading American Heart of Darkness: Volume II by Robert Kirkconnell, I’m not sure I will ever again be able to put any faith in what I hear and/or read in the news. In fact, for the first time, I find myself thinking “fake news” but not quite along the lines that Mr. Trump uses that term: his focus on fake news is how it applies to him. But in relation to American Heart of Darkness, fake news is what governments and those at the top of key organizations like the CIA, FBI, etc., have fed to the media for decades to cover up the realities of major events, like the assassinations of US leaders, the deaths of 900 mostly black people at the hands of Jim Jones in Guyana, the never-ending war on drugs, the ever-increasing racial tensions and so much more. What an eye-opening read!

Kirkconnell points out, and studies have proved it true, that most of us will go against our moral belief systems when those in power demand it, especially if it lines greedy pockets with megabucks. We don’t want to believe that of those we elect into power; we want to believe most of us are good, honorable. To help us keep believing that, the government is never going to allow the truth to come out about “...political assassinations, Vietnam, the drug trade, 9/11 and all the rest.” So instead, the powers that be feed the media “fake news”. It’s so much more comforting to look at everything through rose-colored glasses. No wonder, despite numerous investigations, we still know so little about who actually assassinated JFK and other Kennedys along with Martin Luther King and Malcolm X. Will we ever know the truth? After what I learned about those events in this book, my answer is a resounding “NO.”

American Heart of Darkness II is a long book, but it’s near impossible to put down or stop thinking about once you finish it. I could go on and on about what I learned in this mind-blowing, even explosive book but I can’t do that in a short review. The only way to do justice to Robert Kirkconnell’s extensive research, his theories, and conclusions is to suggest very strongly that you read American Heart of Darkness II and decide for yourself what you will and won’t believe.

American Heart of Darkness: Volume II - Macro-Social Evil in the Post JFK Era is a work of non-fiction focused on government, politics, and sociocultural factors, and was penned by author Robert Kirkconnell. Written for adult reading audiences, this is a work that seeks to explore yet more dark truths about the United States of America, in greater detail and with the truth of hindsight that the mass media dared not report at the time. Exploring major historical assassinations, cult phenomena, and the explosive militarization of the police force, the author takes us on a journey that explains why America is in the mess it’s in today. What results is a powerful exposé of the dirty laundry of the U.S.A.

Author Robert Kirkconnell writes without censorship and offers freedom of information which is certainly lacking in our media-dominated time of fake news and conjecture. As we all know that history is doomed to repeat itself, this exploration of America’s past helps us to relate directly to its present and future by looking at corruption, cover-ups and plain sight information that we are simply told not to look at. The writing style is highly professional, well organized, and well-sourced to take us through the historical journey and explain what really went on under the hood of such major timeline events. I also found American Heart of Darkness: Volume II to be a highly emotive experience, and one which sets your brain on fire with all the connections you make along the way.
