A legendary journalist explores the cult of conspiracy perpetrated by Milton William Cooper, and how it has contributed to the malignant threat of American paranoia.

The greatest conspiracist of this generation is a man you may not have heard of: Milton William Cooper.

A former United States naval intelligence worker, Cooper published his manifesto Behold a Pale Horse in 1991. Since then it has gone on to sell hundreds of thousands of privately published copies, becoming the number-one bestseller in the American prison system. According to Behold a Pale Horse, JFK was assassinated by his driver, an alien sent to murder the president before he could reveal that extraterrestrials were about to take over the earth; AIDS is a government conspiracy to decrease the population of blacks, Hispanics, and homosexuals; and the Illuminati are secretly involved with the United States government to manage relationships with extraterrestrials. And it gets worse from there.

Many of Cooper’s conclusions were driven by personal demons and a highly creative connection of dots, and yet they have shaped a segment of American life in the past few decades—his manifesto holds massive appeal for right-wing radicals and disenfranchised convicts, and it has inspired numerous popular hip-hop groups. In Pale Horse Rider, famed journalist Mark Jacobson not only tells the story of Cooper’s fascinating life but also provides the social and political context for American paranoia—still alive and well in this age of NSA wiretapping and countless shadowy government dealings.
