The NDE content sucked me into the show back in '08 and more recent themes of psyops/limited-hangouts/controlled-opposition have continued to provide me with a valuable service as I seek to navigate the world amid increasingly dense waves of weaponized bullshit. It's this service of aiding in the discernment of truth that I would miss most of all and which hope Alex continues to provide in some form because answers to the big questions will remain inactionable unless and until the smokescreen is cleared.
I can imagine Alex's new role taking a couple different forms. The first being something of a debate moderator (similar to Munk) where the first order of business would be to completely dismantle flat-earth / no-virus / no-planes type shit. Then, after mainstream appeal has been established, the debates can move into more interesting territory where Alex would be uniquely qualified to select representative arguments highlighting the truth as we already know it, and facilitate mass upward migration of consciousness.
Another way Alex could continue to be of service to me is to author some comprehensive work on propaganda and other forms of soft warfare. Imagine "the prince" but written for the modern era. Why does it matter? How long has it been employed? How effective is it? How can it be identified? How can it be countered? Does it effect the advancement of knowledge and the betterment of humanity generally? And probably most importantly: what is the state of the art?
thx so much FL. glad to know we've connected.
I've been thinking about some ways that I can go forward. I have some shows in the works. some of the main changes I'd like to see happen have to do with how I approach skeptiko is my journey changes :)
I also want to ask for help from listeners... well not exactly listeners... I mean. anyone can and should be able to listen... but the people I really care about are folks who want to help me develop these shows. I get excited about the idea of actively working with folks who are trying to figure this stuff out in the same way that I am. I hope to be able to publish a brief solo show this week with more details.
