Hi guys and gals.
After a lifetime spent wandering the intellectual wasteland that is mainstream society, I think I might have found a home at last.
I'm looking for lively, stimulating and challenging discussions with folk who value thinking for themselves (even though their brains may have been
cooked by the CIA's latest microwave gizmo).
I'm reasonably well read in various areas such as WWII and its intelligence legacy, the cold war, social & political theory, paranormal issues and
I'm becoming increasingly interested in the idea of intellectual and academic heresy. No, that's not an oxymoron as the whole Climategate debacle
is beginning to prove.
I've learned not to trust the mainstream media as it seems to always leave out the most interesting and controversial stories. Funny that.
I've finished writing my first novel so I'm busy collecting rejection slips while hard at work on the second, so I'd also like to hear from those
who've stumbled down the path before me. Hopefully they can help me avoid treading in something unpleasant on this dark and uncertain journey.
I'm thinking about posting some early stuff on the short story board as critique helps the skin grow thicker.
The State education system is starting to interest me a lot of late. Can it really be that rubbish by accident? But then, why would a ruling elite
want kids reading the real classics of power like "The Art of War" or "The Prince". I wouldn't if I were them. Much better to tacitly encourage
a Pop Idol, binge drinking, drug taking cholesterol culture than to have a fit, intelligent and ergo restive proleteriat to control.
Anyway, that's enough blurb for a first posting. If anyone has any input I'm always keen to have my brain stretched in a new direction. I'm not
online all the time as I have a lot of stuff to do, but don't worry, I'll get back to folks as soon as I can.
I'll leave you with the core values of the Blackadder Manifesto. "Peace, freedom and a few less fat b******ds eating all the pie."
