"[I often get] the feeling that the very concept of objective truth is fading out of the world... I am willing to believe that history is for the most part inaccurate and biased, but what is peculiar to our age is the abandonment of the idea that history could be truthfully written. In the past people deliberately lied, or they unconsciously coloured what they wrote, or they struggled after the truth, well knowing that they must make many mistakes; but in each case they believed that 'the facts' existed and were more or less discoverable." ? George Orwell from Looking Back on the Spanish War
I can argue that it isn't just esoteric knowledge or black ops and spy rings that are keeping knowledge away from the citizens of this world. I can even go so far as to say most knowledge is kept away from people on purpose. The Family Compact in Ontario flat out admitted they did not want people to really be educated, because it makes it harder to govern them. That was in the nineteenth century when it was not so easy to fleece people for their taxes and corporations did not have their present immortal status and greater rights than people. We are experiencing something far beyond the Literary Theory that Professor Graham Good talks about or what Marshall McLuhan knew about secret societies running the world. It is more than just the Knowledge Filter than Professor Philip Johnson speaks about. Zinn, Parenti and many more know that academia is like the Emperor that has no clothes. I have experienced the matter first hand in many more ways than the nit-picking racist fundamentalists who are always trying to beat back the truth.
A web site called Undernet has this introduction to a few books including my first book Diverse Druids after placing a number of positively portrayed normative Bible Narrative histories in various segments or genres of study. "Pseudo-Archaeology and Pseudo-Science (Buyer Beware: All of the following books have been placed in this pseudo-section because they offering alternative views of science or archaeology which irreconcilably conflict with standard scientific thought. Do not be surprised by bad science, bad sources, poor reasoning or all of the above.)" (1)
This is my response to a person asking if I read Cremo's masterwork which is also put under the same heading. He is in a group of open-minded people who are interested in what is called paranormal.
I did not read Forbidden Archaeology but I read Hidden History completely - it is the shorter version. His facts are from the actual scientific record and there may be a couple that are wrong but he has a valid point of view; albeit one that is backed by Hindu propaganda.
This Undernet place is a Euro-centric and Xian mindset.
It has books that promote the Cradle of Civilization or Bible Narrative in all the top sections. Then it has the attack on Michael Moore mixed in - George W. Bush would be proud. I posted this on Machine Gun Politics@msn communities and explained the way psy-ops affects the herd mentality through this kind of Perception Management. The denizens of that site did the lynch mob thing to me. It is little different than what was done to people supporting emancipation ideology for blacks in recent decades. They are afraid to think for themselves or they say they don't have time to inform themselves. Will mankind start questioning their leaders in the near future?
