- Hello, All!
From a search on Public Eye, I found this explanation
A distinct narrative form of scapegoating, that uses demonization to
justify constructing the scapegoats as wholly evil; while
reconstructing the scapegoater as a hero.
Sees secret plots by tiny cabals of evil doers as the major motor
powering important historical events.
Often employs common fallacies of logic in analzying factual
evidence to assert connections, causality, and intent that are
nonexistent. (end quote)
Also found on Public Eye, there is this from George Johnson, "The
Conspiracy That Never Ends:"
The conspirators are internationalist in their sympathies. Nothing
is ever discarded. Right-wing mail order bookstores still sell the
Protocols of the Elders of Zion. . . (and) Proofs of a Conspiracy,
Seeming enemies are actually secret friends. Through the lens of the
conspiracy theorists, capitalists and Communists work hand in hand.
The takeover by the international godless government will be ignited
by the collapse of the economic system.
It's all spelled out in the Bible. For those with a fundamentalist
bent, the New World Order or One World Government is none other than
the international kingdom of the Antichrist, described in the Book
of Revelation. (end quote)
I watched the HBO documentary "Protocols of Zion" last night. It was
produced in 2003. It was quite alarming in that it showed how the
old forged/fake documents "The Protocols of the Learned Elders of
Zion" are being revived and distributed by various groups today in
order to justify their conviction that there is a conspiracy by a
powerful Jewish run world power elite to overtake the world. There
were several different groups of people interviewed in this film,
many displaying a lot of ignorance that fuels fear and hatred.
"The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion" is being sold at
Amazon.com even though the editorial reviews are scathing of the
book's content and lies. Amazon claims that it will sell the book
because to not do so would impede the right of freedom of choice. In
other words anyone who wants to buy and read this fake document has
the right to do so. On the other hand, I also wonder that perhaps
Amazon recognizes that taking one book off of its offered book list
might lead to removing more idiot books--for instance the looney
books of David Icke. BTW, taking a look at Icke's website today it
seems that he is begging for donations to keep his books in print.
He claims that someone has stolen his rights to his own books and
has taken away his livihood, etc. Anyone who wants to help keep
feeding and housing David Icke can do so by donating through PayPal
or mailing checks to his British address. It seems that this
conspiracy theorist in his paranoia and/or scam is making himself
into a victim of some sort of hoax. Well, the beat goes on, doesn't
it on the Internet! : ) I also noticed Icke's ad on Mind Control
(Mark Phillips and Cathy O'Brian). They are presently meandering up
to Calgary and Edmonton, Canada to sell their spiel. What Icke and
Phillips/O'Brian have most in common is their profession of making a
living by giving talks, workshops and books to the gullible public
who want to believe the authenticity of the myths they have latched
on to. Of course, Icke's and Phillips/O'Brian's websites encourage
that their followers get the message out to everyone by telling
others about their crap and to even buy and distribute their books,
talks, etc. This would all be humorous but for the fact that the
gullible are fueling flames of hate and fear--and this is what is
most scary. For sure, the enemy is within--within the delusional
minds of the easily conned! Those who have bought into this bs have
become relentless warriors in getting these lies out there to the
public--and when one challenges or protests that it is enough, the
believers of these conspiracy theories then resort to insulting and
attacking the sanity of the sane! LOL! Sorry, it really is a sad
world with all this nuttiness taking place.
If you care to look, there are some interesting reviews posted on
Amazon regarding The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion--just
go to the book and click on all the reviews.
Also, if you are interested the Protocols of Zion documentary will
be released for sale on July 11 at Amazon--you can google more
comments on it as well. All very interesting.
You might ask how this ties in with our discussions about the lies
and deceptions in eckankar. One thing is that some of those who have
bought the eck lies and belief system have gone a step further into
believing the bigger world lies--for them, it is logical to advance
to what they believe is an even higher state of delusion they call
consciousness. Also, many of those who remain entrapped (present
chelas)in the eck teachings of being detached, will ignore the
flames of hatred and fear that are being fueled around them--too
busy living on the inner and singing HU I guess to be concerned
about these other hoaxes going on around them.
