We all go through stages in life and we all do things we are not proud of. I'm not blind to Alex Jones' faults and he does tend to exaggerate and
sensationalize things. However I do believe he is right to point out the increasing level of authoritarian control being brought to bear on ordinary
citizens in our time.
The reasons for this are very complicated. In more simple times an oligarchy could control a country without recourse to overtly militaristic and
anti-democratic means, if it had a slight technical edge on the population generally. In our time we have seen a shift in power to the ordinary people
due to the development of technology and the internet. This is one of the reasons for a ramp up in centralized control of the population. Greater
force is required to control the increased power among ordinary people.
We are at a turning point in history. Alex Jones knows this and is warning people about it. There are multiple dangers around us. Media manipulation,
pharmacological manipulation, military and security coercion, political subversion from above
This is Alex's message and that of others. It is valid. It requires action by the people as a whole and as individuals. Marginalizing Alex Jones would
be a tragedy for America and a victory for the oligarchs.
Having said that, Alex needs to cool down in order to be effective. No more voice bellowing in the wilderness. He needs to master his temper and focus
on the job he needs to do, exposing the dangers America faces. My two cents worth.
