Hello fellow threadmates,
I recently gave Icke some of my money for his new book as I have been unable to local any of work at my library, which made me proud, but wanting to
get the milk from the cow, I laid down my cash.
I have to say, I have enjoyed his lunacy in high order. I have read all sorts of science fiction, from the masters to schlock over the years, but his
is beyond the beyond, as his wild allegations unsubstantiated by any credible evidence tie every conspiracy and paranoid fear of the undercurrents of
human culture in a fine tapastry of lunacy that I find highly entertaining.
I do, however, understand the rational fear that these types of 'truths' can pervert the honest search for unknown and unexplainable. The power in
propaganda comes not from controlling information, but 'disinformation'. Unfortunately, the weak minded, the uneducated and the gullialbe grasp at
any alternate idea that would explain their poor lot in life, because it can never be 'their' fault that they refuse to understand reason, logic,
mathematics, semantics and haven't a strong contextual grasp of history, overt and covert. These require hard work and intent focus of will.
OF COURSE, there have been conspiracies throughout history, hidden groups and secret societies, but consider them in one over arching control
mechanism is a great paranoia. They COMPETE within themselves and among others and with open groups with transparent agendas, just as the GREENS have
opposing agendas to, say, the Capitalists, as the left and right compete for the hearts and minds of the masses, misleading them and waylaying them at
I just don't consider human beings that competent. They are too weak, too silly, too human, full of vices and virtues that cause them to self
destruct. The only way to truly keep a secret is to have a cabal of ONE! Once you tell another, your capacity to maintain it is reduced by 50% and
your margin of error expands exponentially.
I generally recommend to my more higher strung friends that they avoid Icke and his ilke. Like I always say: "Leave the thinking to people equipped
So, did the aliens land in Roswell, have they been all along, is that information supressed to avoid mass panic?
I can't see how any of these ideas help me, as an individual, in my life long quest for spiritual, intellectual and physical advancement. I can't
quite see how the forces of the planets can mold my personality, when the forces exerting themselves on me daily are of such a greater magnitude
(noise, pollution, irratating dimwits, etc.).
I do believe that people are gravitating towards these ideas because of the backlash against the rise of the scientific agenda. When we all dwelled
in the house of 'magical thinking' (religious rites, summoning of spirits, the coming of the Christ, etc.) ALL technology was in the hands of the
Gods, but as in the myth of Prometheus, we have wrestled some techniques free and have used them to remold our position in the order of things and
have abandoned 'magic' for reason, logic and scientific method. However, this has not really kept pace with our moral imperative, so rather than
take blame personally and societally, we make the leap that science and reason ITSELF must be to blame, so we turn away, back to "magical
Thus the rise of NEW AGE conspiracies, alternative world views, etc. Which are no more helpful than having immoral men with their hands on "THE
BUTTON" so to speak.
