I would say that Icke borrows rather than steals. The thing is, you can't fully understand and he can't fully explain his ideas without bringing in
huge topics of philosophy. Mostly existential stuff first discussed by Descartes, Kant and whoever else. Icke verbalises these previously discussed
theories but doesn't ever say where he got his ideas from or indeed who originally thought of these things.
First few times I saw Icke I was like, this guy is sprouting A level philosophy and claiming they are his own mind bending society breaking ideas.
Infact I just think that if he had to name all his sources we'd be there all day plus the fact that his material is really ancient when put into
context, thus making it less marketable at £35 for some dvds.
He's good though. Has some good points and opens minds which is a great thing.
