  1. why do you think people aren't interested in knowing this information? do you think they make the conscious decision to stay uninformed? would you say this is also the purpose this forum is serving? To provide space for this kind of conversation and discussion? This reminds me a little about this concept I read about called 'communities of inquiry', where instead of having an exclusive group of people – who acquired expert status within a certain (institutionalised) framework – makes decisions about what should be the accepted truths and facts about their area of expertise, instea
  2. but how do we ever truly know what the end goal is? There are so many options and all of them can seem plausible on a certain level, imo.
  3. @Macnamara so a long-term aim would be to contribute to work that opens up the discourse in the general public away from a rigid framework in which only one kind of knowledge and data is accepted as 'fact' like it is now. and in order to do that I want to understand what's going on in debate and discussion outside of the mainstream. So currently I'm hoping to find clues as to which aspects of the human life-world are cast out of the general discourse
  4. Yeah but how do you determine whose opinions and positions are controlled? It sometimes seems really random to me and I'd like to understand the decision process behind people deciding whose opinion is controlled and whose isn't. Because I personally don't see any reason for believing someone I've never heard of before about a personal conversation he had with someone that no one else has witnessed (the official Report he wrote back then is worded very differently and doesn't point to any of the extremes he sketches out in the interview so I'm leaving that out right now), especially if he only
  5. Do you think other people generally don't have the ability to gather that much knowledge and to contextualise on Corbett's level or do you think it's a decision to make to stay within the realm of 'accepted' / 'mainstream' knowledge?
  6. but then that also obviously depends on how far you think the reach and influence of e.g. controlled opposition goes
  7. I guess that's how you could put it. I mean I would generally consider myself very critical and not "blindly trusting the governments account of things", but I'm still used and acquainted to doing research differently than Corbett for example (like reading social science papers for information) – so in a way I stay within a certain realm of knowledge and resources and information that Corbett and Icke dare to leave. So what I meant was the realm of thinking outside of the institutionalised realm of knowledge, if that makes sense.
  8. @Macnamara Sorry for taking so long to respond, I really appreciate your help and I watched all the documentaries but took my time because of the vast amounts of information they contain. Thank you for the resources, I feel like they contain many of the links I was missing in order to understand some positions in this realm of thinking. I was wondering if you (and maybe others) would be willing to tell me what exactly it is that makes you seek or rely on e.g. the Corbett Report for a source of information. While a lot of the Big Oil documentary was new (and pretty astonishi
  9. So in other words you think that it would be the most natural thing for people to be looking out for their own? And do you think it's still possible (despite globalisation) to create a world in which such a political system/societal organisation exists? So the same powers that were responsible for destroying ancient empires are still at play today? Which similarities do you see between those historical events and now? And how do they tell people what's best for them?
  10. also thanks for this reference! I never read the book, so I guess this is my call to do it...
  11. Also, I was wondering, do you have a source for this or know where I could find it? I remember David Icke's lectures being on youtube but it seems that they were removed, or at least I can't find them anymore.
  12. That makes sense, thanks for clarifying! very nicely said. I might quote you on one day this if that's okay. Are you speaking of God in a Christian sense or a more 'universal' context (or different)? How would you describe your spirituality/spiritual belief? Sorry if this is too personal, I'm just interested in the language people use to describe this kind of experience. Oh I heard about Sheldrake and then completely forgot about him! His theories are interesting, they seem to go into the spheres of life that mainstream sciences often do not 'dare' to touc
