I just finished wathcing Avatar, then logged onto Ats... what a great Thread! Thank you so much for the extra knowledge my brother.. I was born early 90's, and I was very unaware of this! Makes so much sense with the things I have read via novel and internet over the past few years.. I am one of course to belive the massive and intensive conspiracy going on. Can you say Shame ?


Its a disgrace that these governments belive they are super powerful and allknowing towards the race inwhich gave them birth.. those humans in "control" are such a disgrace of the race in which they were born pure bred, apart of and are still biologically connected too. They need to wake the fack up and tell the people. Stop calling their race 'stupid sheep' ... such a disgrace! They are us! Pathetic.. The truth will unfold very soon, and those who are in the know, will meet their Karma in the next life. Jsut stay true and genuine here people
We will all learn the truth in a matter of years from now.

This is very interesting, and I think that a Japanese game called Muv-luv Alternative was based on these Alternative programs.

In said game, Alternative 4 & 5 are being thought up because a race of aliens called the BETA are invading Earth. The BETA first arrived on Earth in 1973 (in China and Canada) after arriving on the Moon in 1967 and being spotted on Mars in 1958.
Alternative 4 is to use a machine thought up to destroy them, and if that fails, Alternative V is to put the most important people of Earth on immigrant space ships & send them throughout the galaxy, hoping to find somewhere to land.

Anyways, it's interesting to wonder if these Alternative programs of US & Russia had any bearing in the storyline of said game.

great thread, very well presented indeed, enjoyable read so thanks to the OP

i just snapped up a 1978 sphere copy of the book for $25. That was the english release and is a good investment but not quite as valuable as the 1979 avon release the op has, but still i got a great bargain and it'll be the first book i've read for years and also a good investment, so thanks all round
The english version is already being sold for $50+, there's actually one 1978 uk copy available for $30 canadian, which is a bargain waiting to be grabbed, the shipping was too much for me.

This is one of those fascinating situations that you just wonder, in 100 years time is this one of the things that people will look back on and laugh? the truth being told to us but no one believing it until some time later. I wonder what else will be common knowledge in 100 years and people look back and wonder how we couldn't see things in plain sight. I really feel like our time will be studied and looked upon like an experiment in effective mind control of people and manipulation.

edit: 3 uk copies available on amazon.ca prices are $30,$129,$151 lol
good bargain if someone wants:

The "Report from Iron Mountain" discusses the problems caused by peace to the Powers That Be. The PTB base their authority (they can legally kill you for disobedience) on the need to maintain an armed force to protect you from outside enemies. In a worldwide governance there are no outside enemies and the Report dicusses how to keep people behind the government.

The two best ideas for maintaining the populace under control control are, environmental crisis and space aliens, with colonization of space a distant third.

Alternative 3 looks like

1 A poll -- How many people can be accessed by this story?

2 A mythology -- Foundation for later propaganda if needed

3 A defamation -- Who ever is talking about a brain drain is talking about bases on Mars

4 A cover-up -- Anybody missing is doing something important

A few member have written that some of the facts or ideas stated in Alternative 3 are not available elsewhere and I think that might be true (don't know if they are facts or just ideas).

Great thread...

I wonder why this Book [ Alternative 003]
is now such a great value


Because they don't want people to be able to afford being able to read it. Even though it's hoax, if it got people in a tizzy back in the 70's then imagine what it would do now.

Yeah, but, the Cuban Missile Crisis happened, and for good reason. according to your logic, the entire Cold War would have had to be a smoke screen... a laughable idea to say the least.

I'm fairly well versed in the Cold War and have read a lot about the CMC, theres no room for the possibility that it happened under false pretence.

Besides, Kennedy was in the Whitehouse, and I thought you Americans trusted him unconditionally?! With Marilyn Monroe wrapped around him, how could u not?


How is it laughable......we ere told Russians wanted to destroy us and spread "evil" communism for decades and nothing ever happened.

Not only is it not laughable.......It's true.

I must ask though, why would they send our smartest people to Mars?

Their logic is absurd. Mars is already a steaming pile of crap.

Earth isn't doing too bad as it is. And it would be impossibly hard to rebuild Mars.

Why not just send everyone else to Mars and keep our smartest people here?

Would you send the dumbest people to figure out the biggest problem your people ever faced ?

If your life depended on it, wouldn't you want the most open minded and intelligent people working on figuring out a solution ?

I mean seriously ?

I saw this at the time of airing, it was in the war of the worlds style, but there were disclaimers somewhere in the programme. Tim Brinton is the guy with the glasses, he was a current affairs and newsman of the day. It was a coming together of a lot of the conspiracy stories, or rather some true stories with fiction thrown in. There were many suicides of scientists at Porton Down Bio research from the second half of the 20th century right up to date, including an American, and possibly a human guinea pig, and Dr Kelly being one of the last in a long list. It was actually a good show, and could have fooled anybody, unless they were 'in the know' in regard to specifics.

I should have added that science report was usually a non-fiction programme.

You entirely missed my point. The whole "Alternative 3" is supposed to be a plan to save Humans from destroying themselves. Apparently they think we're going to destroy the Earth so they planned this whole scheme to send our best and brightest onto Mars. But that makes no sense because Mars is already a desolate wasteland. I don't see the logic in that. It would be much easier to simply change our ways then try to make Mars hospitable. We couldn't turn the Earth into another Mars no matter how hard we tried. Perhaps if we nuked the whole planet we could do it fairly quickly, but other than that I just can't see why this Alternative 3 plan is even logical. They'd need a planet better than Mars for it to be logical.

The idea that Alternative 3 was a hoax created to conceal the truth and discredit anyone who might find the truth reminds me of the Lone Gunmen Pilot.

To those that don't know, The Lone Gunman was a short lived spin off from The X-Files. To make a long story short, the pilot episode revolved around the three Lone Gunmen foiling a plot to fly remote controlled 747s into the World Trade Center.

I have the whole series on dvd and watching the pilot episode is really quite eerie. Many people have said that this was done to discredit anyone who found out "the truth" about 9/11. I can't say that it is or isn't but the similarities are rather odd.

lol.. yes.. "nothing ever happened".... TO YOU!

I guess the revolutions in 1953, 1956, 1968, 1970 and 1981 (among others) throughout the Soviet Bloc that were violently repressed by Soviet forces dont matter.... it must have also been a smokescreen.

Thousands of volumes filled with thoroughly researched oral and written history, and millions of bits of primary sources from Central Committee meetings of every communist party in Eastern Europe must also be a farce. I guess all the thousands of historians who specialize in Cold War history have been completely dupped with infallible evidence (with which i have first hand experience)

Some people are so stupid. They believe anything they read here. If someone says "the cold war was fake, everything that happened after the second world war until 1989 was just a farce so that the two greatest enemies of the 20th century could collaborate and go to mars." ....seriously, people actually believe this crap?

ahahaha. I had to laugh while typing that. It sounds so incredibly stupid.

I am a student of history, and I'm here to tell you that your dead wrong. Educate yourself, for christ sake.

PS: reading ATS is NOT educating yourself, in case your confused.

I suspect that no one is saying the Cold War didn't happen. The basic idea is that the two sides were maintained in conflict so as to expand the power of the people behind the throne.

Eisenhower did not want war with the Soviets. One story has it that peace was close in late 1950's but the U-2 flights were designed to keep the cold war going. And the U-2 incident in 1960 kept the cold war plausible for another 20 years. Until the grain shipments in the late 1970's

I get what you are saying now..

What if they already used the best and brightest and those best and brightest had decided there was nothing we could do to save Earth from whatever was going to happen ?

plan B would then be to send those same bright minds to Mars to survey it, and figure out the best way to start and maintain a colony on mars.

I know but... thats absolutely ridiculous. People say things like that on this site all the time, completely forgetting the reality of the situation!

Anyone who knows the history of the second world war, and the Soviet Union, knows exactly why and how the two superpowers ended up in a cold war.

"people behind the throne/powers that be"... Come on, now. Who? Why? How? What you are saying suggests that the entire circumstances of the Second World War was faked so that some mythical TPTB could somehow benefit.... It makes no sense, and anyone who has educated themselves on these matters can say with full confidence that this is BS.

Not only is it stupid... its impossible. No matter how powerful TPTB (whoever they might/might not be) are, there is absolutely no way in hell that they could manipulate the entire course of the 20th century so perfectly. Its impossible, and if you think otherwise than you are definitely forgetting how amazingly complex the 20th century was.

Ridiculous, to say the least...

What a great thread, and an even greater story. That hoax is ripe to be picked up again. Hoax the discovery of some of those VHS tapes with the special decoding hardware, and film a documentary about it. Just don't tell the person you let discover it.

Only problem I have with that story is this. They wanted to flee the hostile atmosphere of the earth so they went to the hostile atmosphere of Mars? If they could build a base that would keep them alive on mars, why not just build it on earth?

Still doesn't make sense. Why not just wait until the Earth is a wasteland and then do what they want to do with Mars? It's the exact same thing. I have no doubt that secret space programs have surveyed Mars, but the theory presented in Alternative 3 for why they want to survey Mars is disinformation in my opinion. You shouldn't have so much faith in what this documentary says, a lot of this is completely made-up. Upon doing some research it turns out there isn't even an Apollo astronaut named Bob Grodin, they made all that up.

Great thread S&F

Compliments to the OP for an excellent presentation and timing, too!

This thread will likely degenerate into a mixture of replies from those who will claim the veracity of the hoax and the usual suspects who believe there's a real conspiracy being covered up in plain sight. This is ATS, after all.

In any event, it's truly good entertainment.

Yes I understand that point of view. Maybe it's true and maybe not. What gave the Bolsheviks the means to run the USSR? It has been said that the bankers who backed the Bolsheviks in 1917 for $20 million were the same bankers who made alot of money off of WW1 and WW2.


In his last public appearance at a political gathering, the Eleventh Congress of the RCP(B), Lenin had warned that the state machine was escaping from the control of the Communists: "The machine refused to obey the hand that guided it. It was like a car that is not responding to the steering, but going in the direction someone else desired as if it were being driven by some mysterious, lawless hand - God knows whose, perhaps of a profiteer, or of a private capitalist, or of both. Be that as it may, the car is not going quite in the direction the man at the wheel imagines, and often it goes in an altogether different direction."

www.marxist.com...

The USSR always had sympathizers in the US government, even when the Ukranians were starving and the Gulags were multiplying. FDR Vice President Henry A Wallace ran as the Progressive (Socialist/Communist) party candidate for president in 1948.

So we like them when they do their worst, and we hate them when they lighten up?
