    Mishelle -- Facts come out and then interpretations get made. I have very different conclusions from the many primary sources about Iran Contra. I simply disagree with many interpretations you provide, whether they are yours or not. I don't understand why you are getting defensive about this...

    Mishelle. I am not gaslighting. I am explaining myself. I apologize if I sounded insensitive. I was frustrated because we seem to be at an impasse. But I could formally complain about how insensitive you sounded when you stated, "I see you do not know the history" and then proceeded to tell me...

    I will respond to your well-thought comment sometime today or tomorrow. I will also take a look at your larger comment soon as well.

    I know all about what happened in Mena. I remember reading all about it when Jeffrey St. Clair and Alexander Cockburn broke the story in bits and pieces on Counterpunch. I don't need a retell. Once again -- we are on the same page with what happened at Mena. Though, I must also say, I do not...

    I really don't know how to respond to this. I don't understand your reasoning process. Because the CIA and its contracted intel people were able to keep a drug smuggling operation quiet on the outskirts of a small town, therefore, that means that it is possible for a giant satellite operation...

    I don't consider Peterson a Jungian, though he certainly might. He cherry-picks specific Jungian archetypes and uses those to enhance his disgusting machismo philosophy. He's the dirty gutter of Jungian psychology. But yes -- I agree. Psychology/psychiatry has got a nice history of military...

    I don't think psychiatry or psychology is one big scam. They do have a much much much higher success rate than economists do. That is an even bigger scam. I think Jungian psychology at least brings in a spiritual component. And unlike most psychology which says that the dominant culture and its...

    I agree. That's why it would be wonderful if Alex had Patrick Harpur on (or JMG) to give another perspective. People don't realize that one need not be Christian to be highly indoctrinated by the Christian perspective. Much like you don't have to be a neocon or neoliberal to have American...

    FYI -- I was being facetious with bringing Jacobs in. My point was that his theory is equally as biased (and immoral) as Westall & Dizdar (or maybe I should say Westall & Dizdar are as biased & immoral as Jacobs). But thanks for the link. I had forgotten about some of those accusations.

    Extremely well said Philemon. Greer would be a perfect choice to jolt another perspective into Skeptiko.

    I know what people who only look through a conspiracy lens would say, but I am not one of those people. Nor am I someone who dismisses or cynically debunks the conspiratorial simply because it is conspiratorial. One problem from the video is that the commentary is pretending to be helpful, when...

    Who says I am not taking this seriously? That's in your head. I take all of this seriously. I just don't think it is as wide-spread and pronounced as some on this site. And yes, Daemonic Reality is a serious book but it is whimsical as well, much like a poem by William Wordsworth. But you won't...

    Hey Michelle -- THe whistleblowers comment was meant to be deleted. It was a serious thought but is a much bigger discussion than I am ready to have.

    Yes, where are the whistleb I know I guess I don't understand your point about Binney. Because backdoors can be built into systems (like we saw in the Inslaw scandal), that's their way in? Is this metaphor or literal? Not seeing the point about Mena. The stuff going on in Mena did not have...

    Mishelle, Lots of questions because I move fast. Yes, I am somewhat familiar with carl Abrahamsson and his ideas. The point I was making in my "question section" is that post World War II we have similar themes: generational UFO contactee experiences; generational cults; generational MKUltra...

    Generational MK Ultra victims -- Is this the same as generational UFO/alien contact? Generational cults? All of this seemed to ratchet up after WWII. Is this all part of the same thing? Are people saying that segments of the elites practice their own form of MKUltra on their children to groom...

    Alex, I'm in a hurry so am rushing this response. My thoughts may be a little scattered. I have read those articles from Mint Press News. In fact, I am the one who brought them to your attention (around the time you had Sarah Westall on). Yes, there is a sort of intelligence agency--corporate...

    One of the commenters above (which you commented on) brought up the surveillance capitalism issue -- where's the freakin' evidence in this day and age where everyone is filming everyone else? What we have is mostly anecdotal evidence of victims, many of which may very well be victims of...

    Dr. Donald Hoffman, Materialism’s Final Death Blow? |436|

    A quick point, and apologies if this point was made or hinted at in the comments. My biggest concern (which is why the wrap up proved so valuable) is that even if Hoffman breaks ground and becomes a sort of missionary and converter within the scientific community, doesn't it then shift (or keep...

    Rev. Michael Dowd, Death-Cult Environmentalist? |435|

    Alex, I disagree with this analysis but let's say ONE study did get lazy or fudged some data or do whatever it is that you think was done. So what? Does that affect that literally thousands and thousands of other studies that mostly point in one direction -- many of which are independent of...
