Still have to wonder if they have permission to do so. Maybe there is a reason. Maybe it was time.
Do you realize posting cards from a conspiracy nut card game does not make you look intelligent, nor make it look like you have deep insight on any
specific event or happenings. It does nothing. You are not psychic, the card game is not psychic.
The game in fact was based off a book series authored by two dead contemporaries.
The Illuminatus! Trilogy (1975), co-authored with Robert Shea. Advertised as "a fairy tale for paranoids," the three books--The Eye in the
Pyramid, The Golden Apple, and Leviathan, soon offered as a single volume—philosophically and humorously examined, among many other themes, occult
and magical symbolism and history, the counterculture of the 1960s, secret societies, data concerning author H.P. Lovecraft and author and occultist
Aleister Crowley, and American paranoia about conspiracies and conspiracy theories. The book was intended to poke fun at the conspiratorial frame
Now, I think this is something I failed to address when people tried capitalizing off the card game in the past. The card game as I said, is very
standard, nutter ideology. I mean, if you take it for what it is (A CARD GAME) it is fine in and of itself. It could be a fun time if you are into
that sorta thing. Myself, I never played D&D or Magick, or any of those nerd games.
But, the most important thing, is it's nutter stuff. And it's self admittedly nutter stuff. The two creators of the books that it was based on, made
it a Conspiracy Nutter Masterpiece.
Anyway, in any case, Bob Anton and Bob Shea were two cool characters. They both had respectable careers and both made a valiant contribution to the
publishing world. One of the most demoralizing professions you might find for yourself whether it be full time or simply a hobby that meets
Now, yes they both had some ideas about the world, one being a self-proclaimed anarchist that also stated anarchism is impossible. (More of a
transitional thing...) and the other, well, he was a bit of a joker himself:
NOW, Here's a really good one!!!
Spectacles, Testicles, Brandy, Cigars!
I just noticed a quote on Anton's page which struck me by the short and curlies. If you search this forum, and search my username, and the topic of
"NWO" or "Illuminati" you will see some heated arguments between me and insanity, or a few other ones, where I argue with many personalities,
including but not limited to:
Boncho vs. Nutbread.
Boncho vs. Nutella Nut Knob.
Boncho vs. The crazy guy with a cat (or 300?)
Boncho vs. The guy who the government put RFID chips under his skin.
Boncho vs. The insane, clinical and otherwise.
My point being, is I've discussed or debated
flung verbal diarrhoea
with a good deal of people
the past year or so. (has it been two or three now?)
Okay, here's the kicker. A few of my comments I've made, mind you I am going off the top of my head...
Are ones like:
Im the closest you're going to get to the NWO, so ask away.
(I think a ATS member was talking about questions they wanted
to ask the "NWO") Oh noes, Boncho is are is an illuminatus.
Hell, your Mother could be the Illuminati.
Pointing out the behaviour that people attribute to "The Illuminati" is about
the same your Mom uses to get you to eat Broccoli.
Everyone was in high school at some point in their life, and the so called NWO and the group of annoying, gold digging sexually
promiscuous girls I dated in high school, essentially have no differences.
Highlighting the fact that the world is just a hormonal bitch
fest for the world's politicians or behind the scene string pullers.
Anyway, you will see Anton making similar points.
To kind of sum this up, the two of them, brilliant cats, fun guys, deep seeded annoyance with the injustices of the world, but also realists that saw
Were they actual nuts? No. Did they believe their own fiction? No. It was fiction
, they knew that, I know that, you seem to be confused by
