Watch out for those Jesuits!

 I stumbled upon this off- print while going through the papers of one American psychologist(never mind which one) working in the first half of the 20th century.The recipient left no comments about it.  It would seem, after a bit of poking around the internet, that this rabid diatribe comes from a KKK sponsored journal(The American Standard) appearing in New York between 1924- 1925( though I can’t say for sure- as I don’t have access to any library that holds the journal). Leaving aside the sinister purposes of the parent organization, one cannot but appreciate the brute paranoia of it, couched as it is in half- baked notions of telepathy, with a bit of James, New Thought and some old fashioned anti- Catholic sentiment to boot.
