Do you like or dislike the decision of big tech companies to permanently ban Alex Jones/Infowars from their platforms? We put this very question to members of our Underground Knowledge global discussion group in Goodreads – and the interim results are in.

To date, 54% of poll respondents DISLIKE the decision; 31% of respondents LIKE the decision; and 15% are UNSURE.

 

Alex-Jones

Controversial American radio show host and conspiracy theorist Alex Jones.

 

Respondents’ comments make for interesting reading.

A selection of (abridged) comments follow:

Definitely dislike. Here’s why: either freedom of speech exists or it doesn’t. We can’t say “Yes, I’ll allow it” when we like the message, and “Nope, I’ll ban this” when we don’t. The internet helped movements like the Arab Spring, #BlackLivesMatter and #MeToo, and we loved that, but let’s not forget that conspiracy theorists and propagandists have the right to use it too.

I voted dislike and think it could be the beginning of a slippery slope with more and more internet censorship. Given that most of our flow of information, and even much of formal child/adult education, is now done via the internet rather than physical books/papers/records, should we be concerned about increasing measures to censor the internet? It seemed to be a co-ordinated censorship of Alex Jones/Infowars where Facebook, YouTube, LinkedIN, Apple and Spotify all banned him on the exact same day… I’m no big fan of Alex Jones or Inforwars, by the way. I mean he/they do have some legit underreported facts and have exposed definite corruption over the years, but at the same time there are a lot of assumptions made and tinfoil hat-style leaps of faith thrown in the mix…

I may not like what someone has to say but I’ll defend the right they have to say it. Right now it’s Alex Jones but next it could be you. A slippery slope coated with grease…

Couldn’t care less if it was Alex Jones or Owen Jones on ‘trial by social media’ here. Leave it to the law and lawyers to work out what constitutes ‘hate speech’, incitement and all the rest, they’re far more qualified to do so.

This is not North Korea…. or Russia….. I definitely don’t support him, but I’m shocked by this kind of censorship.

I dislike what little I have heard of Alex Jones, but that is not the issue. Big companies tend to do what as few as one dictate, and the use of that power to inhibit free speech is fatal to our way of life. I would go for better enforcement of libel, slander, and other laws, but not the stomping on free speech by a very limited elite.

I voted dislike. The coordinated censorship in some regard is the right of the companies that reacted. If our government was not controlled by corporations freedom of speech would not be legitamently be part of this discussion, but such is not the case. The phobia of controversy is the engine of this insidious machine.

I do not believe in taking away freedom of speech in any way. It disturbs me greatly to see so many going after one man, who I don’t particularly enjoy watching, but sometimes he happens to be spot on with his challenges. 

What is even more disturbing is the amount of people that are happy to have such censorship! Alex Jones may make up some crap, but have you watched the news lately? They are full of crap too. Mostly putting forth their own opinions instead of giving “the facts and only the facts”.

Classified Woman

God's Bankers: A History of Money and Power at the Vatican

So…why would the military need a top-secret film studio in Hollywood? And why did they make more films than Hollywood combined for a period?? And why would they hire some of the most cutting-edge cinematographers and special effects wizards to moonlight on classified films?

In the following interview excerpt from the Underground Knowledge podcast, I talk with Californian author/researcher Tantra Bensko about the military’s formerly top-secret Los Angeles film studio, Lookout Mountain Laboratory. And try to find out why most of the films shot there remain classified to this day…

Underground Knowledge discussion group on Goodreads (has over 8,000 members): https://www.goodreads.com/group/show/142309-underground-knowledge-a-discussion-group

Be seein’ you in the Underground,

James

Membership of our Underground Knowledge group – one of the most active and fastest-growing groups on the Amazon-owned book site Goodreads – has now topped 8,000. New Undergrounders (members) are attracted by the topics being debated. Topics that are edgy, controversial, contentious, insightful, informative, educational and, most significantly, outside of the daily diet of mainstream (doctored) news.

 

 

Little wonder that Undergrounders are of all political and religious persuasions, come from all walks of life and from all corners of the globe, think outside the square, don’t necessarily accept what they tell us, and are insatiably hungry for the news behind the news.

Our members include award-winning authors and journalists, scientists, historians, researchers, teachers and students, surgeons and doctors, conspiracy theorists, members of the intelligence community and armed services (past and present), corporate execs and unemployed, globetrotters and homebodies – and many more.

One thing they have in common is an enquiring mind and a desire to gain or share underground knowledge. They resonate with the group’s aim, which is to encourage debates about important and underreported issues of our era.

Here’s an overview of some of the group’s discussion threads:

Number 3: Operation Mockingbird

The Nation: https://www.thenation.com/article/why-are-the-media-taking-the-cias-hacking-claims-at-face-value/

“In 1977, Carl Bernstein published an exposé of a CIA program known as Operation Mockingbird, a covert program involving, according to Bernstein, “more than 400 American journalists who in the past 25 years have secretly carried out assignments for the Central Intelligence Agency.” Bernstein found that in “many instances” CIA documents revealed that “journalists were engaged to perform tasks for the CIA with the consent of the managements of America’s leading news organizations.”

Operation Mockingbird – The Black Vault http://www.theblackvault.com/documentarchive/operation-mockingbird/

Operation Mockingbird was a secret campaign by the United States Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) to influence media. Begun in the 1950s, it was initially organized by Cord Meyer and Allen W. Dulles, it was later led by Frank Wisner after Dulles became the head of the CIA.

The organization recruited leading American journalists into a network to help present the CIA’s views, and funded some student and cultural organizations, and magazines as fronts. As it developed, it also worked to influence foreign media and political campaigns, in addition to activities by other operating units of the CIA.

“Questions about the Gulf of Tonkin incidents have persisted for more than 40 years.

“Mentally retarded children housed at the Willowbrook State School in Staten Island, New York, were intentionally given hepatitis in an attempt to track the development of the viral infection. The study began in 1956 and lasted for 14 years.

The researcher also wanted to determine the effectiveness of gamma globulin injections as protection against hepatitis.  They justified their deliberate infections and exposures by claiming that given that there was a high rate of infection in the institution it was practically inevitable that the children would become infected.”
