Hi

I saw a message was posted on here a couple of years ago: should we be scared of David Icke? by AustralianBarny. I think we should be very wary. Icke's now starting a global TV/radio show, called 'The People's Voice'. He says a lot of people are just computer software (no souls). He calls thinking for yourself 'robotic' - ie using the left brain - logic, reason, analysis (see the trick there?!) He also divides people up into Lions and Wolves (his followers and himself) and Sheep (everybody else). The Nazis did this (google it). It's well-known that 'New' Age philosophies are basically Nazi philosophies re-vamped. And this includes Icke's: 'Some people are evolving, some aren't'/ 'Raising the kundalini'/ 'opening the third eye'/ connecting to 'the force'. A lot of this is aimed at the young. The 'New' Age also spends a lot of time telling you the Nazis were really 'love in action' and that 'death is a wonderful thing.' Imo, it's the inversion of the pentagram. Orwellian: Freedom is Slavery, etc. (Evil is Love). Luciferianism. Getting chucked out of Eden was a 'blessing', according to the 'New' Age.

If you DO 'raise the kundalini'/'open your third eye', it's known the consequences can mimic those of paranoid schizophrenia - ie you hear voices telling you people 'have to die'. Read some 'New' Age luminaries - Hubbard, Spangler, etc. And Icke's earlier works. These 'voices' never tell you to just love people. It's always: 'a lot of people have to die.'

Basically: if you have teenagers/friends who start getting into this stuff, I'd keep an eye on them. Mention its downside, etc. Icke, imo, is NOT just a 'harmless nutter'. This ridicule's meant a lot of people don't look too closely into what he's actually SAYING. And he now has a lot of followers worldwide.

Most of MN are well aware of the dangers of Conspiracy Theories. People DO look at what well followed figures like Icke are saying.

Crikey. My DD is being forced to study the Ministry of Love for A Level.

Yep he's a nut job. An anti-semitic one to boot. Jon Ronson's Them is a good exploration of the ludicrousness of his claims if you fancy some further reading.

I can't stand him !!!

hardboiledpossum Mon 14-Oct-13 20:27:01

I think you sound as unhinged as he does tbh.

GobbySadcase Mon 14-Oct-13 20:27:45

Mind you he had it pretty spot on about savile and others....

soul2000 Mon 14-Oct-13 20:30:00

Its good to have a laugh for half an hour on his website if you are bored.

JustBecauseICan Mon 14-Oct-13 20:32:24

He made the Isle of Wight interesting for a nanosecond, he can't be all that bad......

Didn't realise he was still blathering on tbh. Is he still yogic flying? Or have the old knees given way now?

Is he still turquoise clad?

UriGHOULer Mon 14-Oct-13 20:39:14

Hardboiledpossum has it right. You sound very mixed up. I'm not a fan of David Icke I think he's a terrible spokesperson for "new age" philosophies (for want of a better term). He comes across as an opinionated boor.

Nancy66 Mon 14-Oct-13 20:40:15

He thinks the royal family are lizards so i'm probably not going to peg too much importance to anything he says to be honest....

LEMisdisappointed Mon 14-Oct-13 20:42:20

David Icke is a fruit loop - that is basically all you need to know, tbh i thought everyone who had heard of him knew this.

pianodoodle Mon 14-Oct-13 20:54:44

The man's as mad as a bag of monkeys.

LuisSuarezTeeth Mon 14-Oct-13 20:59:34

What is your motivation for starting this thread OP?

Numberjackass Mon 14-Oct-13 21:02:15

Gottit OP. I'll keep my third eye on them. wink

SatinSandals Mon 14-Oct-13 21:08:22

I didn't realise that anyone was supposed to take him seriously- or at least not seriously to worry about. There are plenty of nutters about.

HereComesHoneyBooBooDragon Mon 14-Oct-13 21:09:27

Hello and welcome to Mnet, tell us about yourself smile

myroomisatip Mon 14-Oct-13 21:14:35

hhmmmm actually OP I am more worried about you than I am about David Icke....

Longdistance Mon 14-Oct-13 21:15:32

Some people have too much time on their hands, and need to find a hobby get a life

Ah man don't say that man's name.. don't want that lot over here.

Dawndonnaagain Mon 14-Oct-13 21:33:16

Where's mad eye moody when you need him!

Tweasels Mon 14-Oct-13 21:35:00

Ah, good old David Icke, always good for a laugh.

I think we're ok for now OP, maybe get some tinfoil sunglasses for that third eye though, just to be on the safe side.
