I smell Establishment disinformation
on 6 July 2002
David Icke informs us that lizards rule the world. The evidence: a few artists' impressions sketches, photos of gargoyles and an ambiguous figurine. He presents a simplistic view of the world in which humanity faces ever greater centralisation by the lizards. However there is a highly manipulative side to his argument.
At the start is a quote from the Carlos Castaneda book The Active Side of Infinity in which Don Juan tells Castaneda that a predator came out of the cosmos to enslave humanity's minds. Now in that book the predator is revealed to be "inorganic beings" in the form of "mud shadows", definitely not lizards. Then, later in the book, he informs us that director John Carpenter knows the score, thanks to the film They Live. But in this film, aliens are revealed to be all around us, not restricted to those in positions of power.
Icke makes out he's a friend of the people, yet in a documentary "The Secret Rulers of the World" on Channel 4 footage was shown of his live show, which starts with a pop song with the lyrics "No matter what they tell us, no matter what they say... what we believe is true". His aim is have his followers unthinkingly believe what he has to say without questioning his lack of evidence.
From the standard of evidence presented in this book he could have said that it is serpents, werewolves or vampires ruling the world, due to the existence of these entities in literature.
The book redeems itself a little with interesting articles on aspartame, fluoride and prozac, but this information can be obtained off the internet.
For a good overview on the history of the Elite and their role in human sacrifice I would recommend "Secret and Suppressed". Otherwise, buy "You are Being Lied To" instead.
