As the title of book one in our controversial Underground Knowledge Series suggests, GENIUS INTELLIGENCE: Secret Techniques and Technologies to Increase IQ  goes where mainstream education and academics seldom venture.

 

GENIUS INTELLIGENCE: Secret Techniques and Technologies to Increase IQ (The Underground Knowledge Series Book 1) by [Morcan, James, Morcan, Lance]

 

We, the authors, remind readers the brain’s potential is the human potential, and we pose the question: What if there are faster and easier ways to learn and study than the modi operandi currently being taught in mainstream education systems?

In the following, we list some of the ideas, theories and suggestions explored in the book. (The links take you to discussion threads in our popular Underground Knowledge global discussion group on Goodreads):

ALTERNATIVE THINKING BOOKS LISTED IN THE UNDERGROUND KNOWLEDGE GROUP

Classified Woman

by Sibel Edmonds  (AKA The most classified woman in U.S. history!).

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

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:

The U.S. Military’s OFFICIAL proposal to kill American civilians, bomb U.S. cities and hijack planes in staged terrorist attacks (Operations Northwoods/Mongoose declassified)

*****************************************

Undergrounders, or members, in our Underground Knowledge global discussion group on Goodreads, are speculating whether the Islamic State (IS/ISIS) is another invention of the West.

 

Image result for isis soldiers

ISIS terrorists…Their reason for being now questioned.

 

Unsurprisingly, this discussion thread is one of the most active in the group.

Here’s what some of our members are saying:

I’m from the Middle East. Many people in that region believe in the conspiracy theories which holds the west the responsibility for ISIS’s rise. Unfortunately half the conspiracy theories could be true. I have no doubt that the main bulk of ISIS comes from a minority of religious extremes who believe in the idea of martyrdom and apocalypse. Most of those religious fanatics are not local to Iraq and Syria but came from other countries around the world to fight there. Having said that, I believe that some western powers contributed passively and actively in the process of ISIS making… If you track who would benefit from instigating wars in 3rd world countries I’m sure you can trace it back to large oil and weapon companies. Through these wars they maintain their business.

and I would add to the list mining companies, Big Pharma companies and those corporations like Halliburton who do the rebuilding contracts after our (Western) nations blow these countries up! The whole charade of “fighting for peace” would be hilarious if it wasn’t for the fact that innocent people are dying.

Money, Blood and God: Who Funds Terrorism? https://www.goodreads.com/videos/9797… Tagline for the above video: It’s no secret that religious extremists in the Middle East use kidnapping and robbery to generate income — but they have investors as well. And, though you might not hear it in the news, many of these investors are US allies.

BREAKING: Putin Reveals ISIS Funded by 40 Countries, Including G20 Members — http://themindunleashed.org/2015/11/b

What with this, plus Russia’s supposed coming out with 9/11 inside job details, and the fact Russia have just been bombing the shit out of hospitals in Syria and ‘the west’ retaliating in response, and not to mention that the Russian P.M said this week we were heading for a new cold war… I have a bad feeling the shit’s really gonna hit the fan this year between Russia and ‘the west’…

I tend to agree with the “false flag” interpretation. I have heard another news clip (yet to be verified as true) that Trump has ordered further bombing of the Syrian army who were heading towards eastern Syria, where ISIS is. If true, this is more than deplorable.

Suggest you guys read up on the White Widow, married to the 7/7 bus bomber who was killed. Although there was a warrant out for her, the UK Home Office issued her a new UK passport a month after the bombing, she flew to JHB… Then she pops up training ISIS female fighters, then Ukraine. Who was she working for????

*******************************************

Do you believe society would be better off if recreational drugs were decriminalized? We’ve put this question in our latest poll to Undergrounders (members) of our Underground Knowledge discussion group on Goodreads – and interim results show two thirds of participants believe that would be the case.

 

Image result for decriminalizing drugs pros and cons

 

Poll results to date show that 65% of participants believe society would be better off if recreational drugs were decriminalized, 20% are unsure and 15% believe society would be worse off.

Participants’ comments make interesting reading. Here’s a few examples:

It depends a great deal on the drug. It would be better off to legalize a drug like marijuana. It would not be a great idea to legalize Meth, or heroin.

I see the War on Drugs tied in with the Prison Industrial Complex…And the drug and prison industries are two of the most profitable on Earth…And that’s a real concern to me, especially when you consider most people are in jail due to committing “victimless crimes” (i.e. they never hurt anyone, but themselves).

I can’t see any benefit in legalising meth, or heroin, or a number of other horrors.

The War on Drugs is a travesty in my view as it not only hasn’t worked, but I think it was designed to never work…In that, by making drugs highly illegal, it drives the price up 10 or 100 fold what they would otherwise be. And that profit incentive increases not decreases their distribution in society…

When I lived in Amsterdam the main crime was bicycle theft, the streets where safe and there were less addicts because it was legal it lost its appeal…It’s all politics, it got nothing to do with drugs!!!

If all and sundry have access to meth, recall an awful lot of violent crime is meth related, so that would grow. If you have ever seen a true heroin addict after a good period of addiction, you would not see any benefit there.

Portugal had a huge problem with drug users, especially heroin, and they have now legalised drugs. It is far from resolved, a mess building for decades won’t be cleaned in months, but they are making good progress.

I see at least 2 dilemmas facing legalizing recreational drugs: They will be taxed to the max, making ’em prohibitively expensive and the 2nd being the cartels looking to make up for the loss.

History tells us, definitively, that it’s better to legalize vices than make them illegal–which does not stop them and just adds a lot more crime, increases the number of victims and casualties, and enriches criminals. During prohibition, crime involving alcohol was rampant, gangsters got VERY rich and everyone (rich and poor alike) continued to drink.

Right now there is a recognised problem with overuse of opioids, that is technically legally obtained drugs. Why would opening up the supply and letting everyone have a go make that problem less?

There’s a massive financial incentive to make entire communities/nations addicted…the illegality is what drives not only drug syndicates and big cartels, but also more organized criminal elements within the CIA (the biggest profiteer from the War on Drugs it seems).

HELL NO! I’m almost 37. I can proudly say I’m both alcohol and drug free. I’ve never tried weed, nor will I ever…Smoking weed would not make me a better or cooler person.

What we need to do is obliterate the Drug Barons, smugglers, and unsafe drug cutters. We also need to be wise about which drugs we legalise. Akin to Prostitution, certain drugs need to be legalised, available from approved chemists; that the drugs are the genuine article is given. Add in tax and VAT [sales tax], and rip the heart out of this illegal industry. A fair price for a genuine product.
