"It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society." – Jiddu Krishnamurti
If your ideas of Reality and Truth mostly come from what you see on the brainwash machine, oops!, I mean television, or read in newspapers and other mainstream or so called "official sources", you have fallen for what Carl Sagan called "The Bamboozle".
In this presentation David Icke outlines in detail what The Bamboozle actually is.
When he first started speaking publicly about the "totalitarian tip toe" and other FAR more esoteric subjects (30 years or so ago) there were barely a handful of people who came to his lectures. In the years since much of what he and other researchers like Jordan Maxwell tried to warn humanity about has come to pass, and David Icke now sells out Wembley Arena in London and other such venues around the world due to the interest that people have gained in his work.
A word of caution: the topics covered in this video can either be too fantastical, incomprehensible or (just) very challenging for people who are new to this kind of information. My advice: take away from it what you find interesting, leave what you can't handle, and most of all, don't take anyone's word for anything – do your OWN research.
