have you heard any news stories about david giving to charity? does he mention it? it would seem he can certainly afford to be more generous. atleast, his rant a few months ago about how few people are paying for his newsletters seems a little misplaced.
His rant a' few months ago' was from 4 years ago actually. It just keeps getting dug up whenever the site goes down.

People who give to others don't always feel the need to advertise the fact. It is not about glorifying oneself, is it?

What else are you going to do with your money?
if he wanted to reach the masses, the cheaper the better?

Idiotos, remember this right away that Icke has self published his book and he needs a little extra money. And what the hell is it with you if it were expensive or not, he does not unfortunately send out a book ever year now does he?
i dont smoke, dont get angry or act big online "idoits" cause your proberly a lil ruddy poo with a picture of a cat as ya profile, all im saying if he wanted to reach the masses he would charge less, do you think a person who knows little about icke is willing to pay 20 quid just like that?

Considering most of the information is probably on the internet then it is probably more of a luxury for some people than a necessity
thats what im saying, is person on benefits gonna be able to afford it? so to find out the truth it shouldnt be 20 quid

i often lend my books to people who can't afford to buy them.

i've even given a few away.

libraries will often get a book if you ask them to order it in.

In a word yes.

Icke makes his living out of the 'truth' so can't just give the information out for nothing - but the high price of the item does exclude some people from being able to purchase it.

Hey Pinder, you can abuse my lovely cat and myself as much as you like cos you are behind a computer screen anyway.
So you moan about the cost of a Well Worth it £20 book then and you moan about being on benefits, well go find a job and make sure you go to a BOOK library instead of a video library in future.
This folks is typical Icke bash post basically and these folks will even want Icke to give them the shirt on his back and his property.

I was introduced by the wonderful literature of David Icke from a book I loaned out from the library, you PIndar is just piss taking and basically jealous cos nothing you have to say is of value whatsoever.

Why would a library remove a book because of its "nature"? If that were the case, why would they put it on their shelves in the first place?
Books are removed from shelves because
a/Libraries regularly change their stock and flog books/CDs/DVDs at bargain basement prices in book sales.
b/People fail to return them after borrowing them.

Inter-loans from other libraries are easily accessed for a small charge, the size of which is dependent on how heavily the expense is subsidised locally. This means you can easily access library stock from across the country. A search of the catalogues of just two major cities shows more than adequate representation of Icke's books:

https://librarycatalogue.manchester....8&searchTerm2=
http://libcat.bham.org.uk/cgi-bin/vp...o_of_results=9

The new one will likely take some time to filter into library catalogues.

Libraries will even consider suggestions of books they should purchase, though there is no guarantee they will choose to do so. If people do not wish to pay the rather steep price for the new Icke book they should request it at their library. If libraries perceive a book will be popular - like getting multiple requests for it - they will likely purchase a copy.

I don't see the point in arguing about the cost of Icke's latest book. Some books cost less, some cost more. If you want to talk about value, then there's something to talk about.

From the interviews I've listened to and watched, I have learnt the following things about this book from Icke himself.

1. The first half of the book, again, is a re-cap of all the other books.

2. The whole moon idea just came in to his head one day. "I just had this sudden knowing so went in[sic] the internet".

3. The main book Icke takes things from Who Built The Moon, completely disagrees with Icke. He just took the bits he liked and ignored the rest. See my thread on that book if you want more info.

4. Icke claims it's the most pivotal world shattering book (he says that every time) yet it's not even in bookshops.

That's just four discussion worthy topics right there, so why quabble over price?
