Dear Mr. Livingstone.
I read your book with great interest. Nevertheless I wanted to point out one major mistake that it contains: The alledged prediction of three world wars by Albert Pike.
As Terry Melanson found out, the alledged letter from Albert Pike to Mazzini, August 15, 1871 was a forgery by Leo Taxil aka Dr Bataille published in the book Le diable au XIXe siècle, v. II, 1894, pp. 594-606.
Please refer to the following article for all details concerning the hoax.
