This comes close to being David Icke’s best book so far. I’ve read a number of them and although I prefer his one on Global Conspiracy, this one does bring many of his ideas and theories up to date. I for one don’t agree with much of what Icke says; his stuff on reptilian hybrids infiltrating the higher echelons of society and his belief that the moon is some kind of spaceship sound almost ridiculous.
Having said this, a lot of what Icke says about power structures and institutions like education and religion, do have a ring of truth in them. Though, of course, Icke only offers one interpretation among many others.
And it is certainly good to hear such alternative voices discussing such issues like global warming. We are always being told how we are damaging our environment to the point where is seems almost unquestionable to ask: Is it true? Icke points to his sunspot theory, which, when you read it, sounds fairly convincing. But here’s the point: you hardly ever hear academics talking of sunspots as being a possible cause of global warming; and if you do, then it is very rare.
Of course, Icke may be wrong, and probably is. But the fact that the public hardly ever come across views other than the consensus is a bonus to Icke’s writing for at least raising such issues, and making the public aware that there are alternative views. Icke should be commended for this.
In addition to this, Icke’s writing is always clear and fairly easy to follow throughout the book. And many of the images in the book, and captions that accompany them, help to clarify Icke’s message throughout. Though I did find that keeping up with the amount of names in the book can, at times, be quite confusing.
I initially reviewed this book and gave it a total of three stars; having since read the book and dipped into it on and off thereafter, I can see more clearly what Icke is arguing. As I say, I may disagree with Icke on much of the content. But it can only be a good thing to have alternative voices, like Icke’s, so we can make up our own minds rather than being told what to believe by a media that seems mainly content on providing only the consensus view on all things.
It is now good to have a kindle version of this book, which as a large paperback was always too difficult to carry around. Review now upgraded to 4 stars.
I hope you find my review helpful.
