Chris White combines tenaciousness with a rare clarity of thought. Whether or not you agree with his opinions, his stance, or his motives, White’s particular brand of criticism is timely, perhaps even necessary.
I’ve never been involved with the so-called “truth movement.” My own awakening to the machinations of the elite occurred in the early 1990s. Michael Tsarion, Jordan Maxwell and David Icke weren’t around back then (perhaps Maxwell was; toiling in obscurity somewhere). I was reading Gary Allen’s None Dare Call it Conspiracy and William T. Still’s New World Order: The Ancient Plan of Secret Societies, while listening to Wild Bill Cooper’s ‘Hour of the Time’ on a cheap short wave radio – before Waco, before the OKC bombing, and a decade before 9/11. However, at the same time I was also into Robert Anton Wilson, Michael Howard’s The Occult Conspiracy, John White’s theories of an imminent Pole Shift, Richard Noone’s Ice: the Ultimate Disaster, anything and everything on Nostradamus, John Anthony West’s Serpent in the Sky: The High Wisdom of Ancient Egypt and a plethora of “hidden history” proponents. I took these various authors with a grain of salt; cautiously sceptical, until further investigation.
It’s the latter milieu that resonates with the material David Icke is known for: a curious and confusing fence-straddling which acknowledges the conspiratorial hidden hand of history while at the same time somewhat admiring much of its core doctrine.
Obvious to point out is the fact that knowledge is inherently neither good nor evil. However, from the Christian stance of Chris White, there are certain teachings – and the practical application thereof – which are disconcerting to say the least. Instead of flirting with, even promoting the doctrine found within the (Blavatsky/Bailey) theosophical strain of western esotericism, White feels, rather – as do I – that it should be discredited or shown for what it is.
The word “debunk” is an unsettling word. And for the true critical thinker it has long since become unpalatable. It immediately brings to mind argumentative and dogmatic sceptics; the high-horsed, self-professed know-it-alls; the Michael Shermers and James Randis of the world. And besides: a debunking can be construed as a ridiculing. Perhaps another title for the documentary would have been recommended. (Ironically, Michael Barkun – the academic conspiracy theory debunker – fittingly described Icke as a “New Age Conspiracist.”)
