It has been a while since I have paid attention to what was going on in the alleged "truth movement". Recently, I have been browsing through it, and
found that literally everyone saying anything seems to have some form of mental illness. Everyone is also attempting to make money, and so may be
promoting themselves in a way that makes it appear that they are mentally ill because they believe it will be profitable.
Because a lot of people are still tied to this "truth movement", psychologically and/or emotionally, and want to continue to insist that there is
"some good" in it, I find it worthwhile to go through and demonstrate the sort of insanity and scamming that is going on within this alleged
It is worth mentioning that all of these people present a good number of facts. Or most of them do. But that it is always mixed with nonsense. People
will dismiss this as "oh, so and so might be wrong about such and such", but in reality the person is either insane or running a scam. It is worth
noting that those engaged in the latter will often, if not always, justify their scamming by beginning to believe their own hype. As such, their greed
is transformed into mental illness, as they start to believe their own lies.
I know that most posters on this forum are aware of how bad this has gotten, but I still believe it would be fruitful to document it in detail. The
reality here is startling, even for those that have already dismissed the movement entirely, because there really is no solid or objective truth being
put out in a straightforward manner, anywhere. The whole movement functions on various leaders, who create their own little semi-religious cults,
giving people some truth and then expecting them to swallow a load of nonsense along with it.
All of this seems to center around Alex Jones, who functions as the crux of the whole scam. Jones has gotten progressively worse since 2002 when I
started listening to him, changing many of his positions so as he could incorporate cross-marketing with various other mentally unstable scam artists
into his platform. After he took over the old-guard shortwave radio "patriot" movement by incorporating internet technology, he began to widen his
spectrum and become the figurehead for all forms of discontent with the establishment, not just that relating to Christian Patriotism. His method can
be compared to a pyramid marketing scheme. He allows people to get wide exposure on his show, as long as they do not criticize him. He will allow
multiple and conflicting views to be presented on his show, in a manner that appears schizophrenic, as long as they all in turn support his imperial
Jones also provides the basic narrative for the entire movement. Even those who allegedly disagree with him, even attack him, follow his same format
and method of incorporating large numbers of facts into a presentation, and then spinning them into something nonsensical through oratory acrobatics.
There is generally a sense of impending doom, which does not appear to be warranted in any way and causes paralysis in the listener. Their one defense
is that they do include a lot of empirical facts along with their lies and disinformation, but these facts, when examined, generally prove to be
irrelevant. "Information overload" is induced, and this leads to chaos in the mind of the receiver of the message, which allows them to be driven
into panic and confusion and exploited for money. Note that many "leaders" use a variant method of inducing plain insanity, which may not be
directly related to the fear-based marketing scheme, but nonetheless relies on blatant disinformation couched in a series of unimportant empirical
I have gone through and listened to parts of dozens of different radio programs over the past few days, and found no one who is not pushing some type
of insane, delusional agenda. Literally, if you pick out any one of these so-called "leaders" of the "truth movement" you will find that they are
promoting some bizarre belief system, relating to aliens, patriotism, Christianity, the occult, or some other possibly even more bizarre and
disconnected distortion of the reality situation. Though I do not wholly support all of his positions, the only person who seems devoted to exposing
the fact that this "truth movement" is totally isolated and removed from reality is the relatively obscure podcaster Paul Ironshore, who hosts the
Iconoclast Radio Show.
The bottom line is that the entire truth movement is just as absolutely insane as the mainstream media fantasy world, in that the level of disconnect
from reality is equivocal. I believe this is an absolutely terrible situation, and something needs to be done about it. This forum has been considered
"post truth movement" for some time, but it is my belief that we who understand what is happening have the ability to recognize the flaws of this
present trend in reality distortion by the main moguls of the alleged movement, and form a real movement based on a return to reality.
As I am working towards helping others to realize this, inviting others to join me, I think it is worthwhile to demonstrate exactly what we are up
against. It should ultimately prove encouraging, as the fraud, lies, misdirection and distortion going on are so blatant, anyone can see it when they
step back and take a look, and this indicates that it should not be especially difficult to combat.
These people have betrayed us. But it is not yet totally impossible for those of us who are honest, who do not have a desire to make loads of cash
from exploiting people, to reassess what is happening and begin to bring people back to reality.
So, let's look at what these people are saying.
