haha Francis Bacon wrote shakespear? Bacon was a great guy but; Othello, Hamlet, King Leer? haha not a chance!
O, pardon me, thou bleeding piece of earth,
That I am meek and gentle with these butchers!(275)
Thou art the ruins of the noblest man
That ever lived in the tide of times.
Woe to the hand that shed this costly blood!
Over thy wounds now do I prophesy
Which like dumb mouths do ope their ruby lips(280)
To beg the voice and utterance of my tongue,
A curse shall light upon the limbs of men;
Domestic fury and fierce civil strife
Shall cumber all the parts of Italy;
Blood and destruction shall be so in use,(285)
And dreadful objects so familiar,
That mothers shall but smile when they behold
Their infants quarter'd with the hands of war;
All pity choked with custom of fell deeds,
And Caesar's spirit ranging for revenge,(290)
With Ate by his side come hot from hell,
Shall in these confines with a monarch's voice
Cry “Havoc!” and let slip the dogs of war,
That this foul deed shall smell above the earth
With carrion men, groaning for burial.
Like the mighty Julius Caesar in Shakespeare’s awesome tragedy, a small group of men have banded together in our modern age to assassinate another great leader. This new “leader”, however, is not a king of men but the undisputed ancient Caesar of the financial world. This Caesar has been lusted after for six millennia of human history, and has always been the ultimate standard of wealth, trade, and money. The neo-conspirators have drawn up Machiavellian plans to viciously assassinate the legendary king of assets itself, gold.
Gold is a powerful and formidable foe. It is the primary financial asset that has intrinsic worth in its own right, that does not represent the mere good faith and credit of another party. Every other non-commodity paper asset is only as good as the people backing it, the folks promising to meet the contractual obligations outlined on the inherently worthless fiat paper.
In our wacky modern world, the financial markets have been besieged by a blizzard of paper. Throughout virtually all of human history, paper promises to pay were backed at least in part by gold. For the last half dozen years, paper assets have made some people fantastically rich. The seductive allure of controlling the paper assets is that more can always be created with a stroke of the pen. The paper fiat “assets” can be expanded ad infinitum, creating truly vast personal paper wealth for the entities controlling the paper. There is a catch to this massive Ponzi scheme, however. The paper game only works as long as the general populace in the nations besieged with the paper BELIEVES and has FAITH in the paper assets. The moment that faith begins to wane, the gig is up and the false “wealth” that the paper once seemed to represent rapidly sublimates to its true value, zero.
The goal of the paper game for the paper hangers is to rapidly create paper and convert it into REAL assets, including gold, land, buildings, companies, etc before the public faith in the new paper is lost. American investors have received a very painful first hand lesson this year in the NASDAQ of what happens when paper assets are totally divorced from reality and historic cashflow valuations are scoffed at. The bust after a bubble is always wicked, and the pain sustained from that inevitable “correction” gravely outweighs any pleasure derived from riding the original bubble up to the heavens.

anyway i haven't watched the docu yet but i'll go do it now, sure to be a laugh i love watching illiterates misrepresent shakespear - to have the extra serving of botched Bacon should heighten the comedy no end.
When Cantor reached his breaking point, he became obsessed with a completely non sequitor unsolvable problem. He wanted to prove that Shakespeare never wrote any of his plays; that they were really written by Francis Bacon. A similar thing happened to Gödel -- in attempting to solve this continuum problem, he fell into an obsession with proving that the mathematician Leibniz plagiarized many of his theories. Both men faced the problem of actual infinity, and became paranoid, raving maniacs as a result. (1)

I know zilch about this subject but cannot help but as why ? Why go to so much trouble to conceal the fact that someone didn't write what is alleged he wrote and why allege it in the first place ?
A play is a play who cares who wrote it ? If Shakespeare didn't and Bacon (or whoever) did why hide it ? Makes no sense to me.

Everybody knows that Francis Bacon wrote the best of S plays.
There are plays, like Henry V and sonnets, which are totally propaganda and have no artistic value. There were probably several people who wrote all that is ascribed to Shakespeare.
