We do like Jonathan Nakapalau’s review of our epic thriller novel Silent Fear…

This one really grabbed me! It is by far one of the best thrillers I have read in quite some time! The feeling of isolation is gelatinous as events unfold and questions start to follow every answer – I found myself wondering what I would do if I were in a similar situation (which is one of the ways I know I am getting ‘drawn in’). Unlike so many ‘formulaic’ attempts to scare this is a ‘nightmare stew’ that will fill you full of dread!

Who would you like to see win the 2020 United States presidential election? That’s the question we put to members of our Underground Knowledge global discussion group in our latest poll on Goodreads… and the results may surprise!

 

Republican National Convention: Day Four

Trump ahead in Underground Knowledge group poll.

 

Candidates include a mix of confirmed, rumored and possible candidates. Poll participants have been invited to add their own favorite candidate if they don’t see their preferred individual on the list.

Listed candidates thus far include: Elizabeth Warren, John McAfee, Hillary Rodham Clinton, Jesse Ventura, Marco Rubio, Jill Stein, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, Alec Baldwin, Zoltan Istvan, Donald J. Trump, Jon Rappoport, Oprah Winfrey, Howard Schultz, Al Gore, Kamala Harris, Bernie Sanders, Michael Bloomberg, Joe Biden, Kanye West, Cory Booker, Chelsea Clinton, Mark Cuban, Michelle Obama, Ivanka Trump, Bill Weld, John Kerry, Alex E. Jones, Michael Avenatti, Jim Webb, Kirsten Gillibrand, Tulsi Gabbard, Beto O’Rourke

Interim poll results have President Trump ahead with 19.1% of the early vote; next is Bernie Sanders on 13.8% followed by Michelle Obama on 12.2% and Oprah Winfrey on 6.4%.

Seems not all Undergrounders (members of our Underground Knowledge group) approve of the poll. This comment just in from one upset punter who goes by the name Angel: “Why bring this shit to Goodreads and upset people? I voted here out of principle. But seriously, I don’t think this poll is necessary. Some people come here to escape this stuff.”

Our poll moderator James responded to Angel as follows: “I apologize profusely for hurting anyone’s feelings…”

The Underground Knowledge global discussion group has been designed to encourage debates about important and underreported issues of our era. All you need is an enquiring mind, an interest in the world we live in and a desire to learn or share ‘underground knowledge’.

 

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

What is a bigger threat to society: Inequality (whether caused by sexism, racism or other discrimination) or Political Correctness (e.g. censorship, language controls, anti-freedom of speech regulations etc. that aim to prevent inequalities)?

That’s the latest poll question we put to members of our Underground Knowledge discussion group in Goodreads.com.

 

PC

 

Interim poll results are as follows: 35% say Inequality; 29% say Political Correctness; 34% say both; 2% are unsure.

In introducing the poll, here’s what Underground Knowledge group co-founder James says:

Hey, hey, hey, don’t shoot the messenger here regarding the phrasing of the poll (Yes, I’m a mind reader!)

This is a really tricky poll to word and I perhaps didn’t quite find the best wording.

But hopefully y’all get the gist of the two sides of the equation here.

For the record, I voted both are equal threats as I fear both extremes. And I’m also very aware that some people try to make out every single concern expressed by minorities or the disadvantaged or outcast would always equate to PC in action — that can be a subtle tactic of fascists or racial agitators or gender/sexuality haters, where they always label any sensitivity concerns expressed as “political correctness” when half the time they are legitimate concerns.

However, I must admit lately I’m getting more and more concerned about not only the more extreme side of Politically Correct (PC) culture (especially censorship) and the all pervasive “Nanny State” it’s breeding — but also the growing “we know best” brigade who seem to judge any action of a public figure that’s even slightly unsavory/distasteful as being completely unforgivable…Some of that sort of lobbying for social justice gets really vicious especially on social media…And it’s weird how those claiming to be humanitarians end up becoming quite militant or even fascist in their attempts to “deliver justice”…

So somehow it seems to be about getting the balance right where we do stand up against legitimate hate speech and purposeful marginalizing of various underdogs of society, without preventing open debate and freedom of speech. Because I wonder if our society could eventually become so overly protective in its desire to create equality and inclusiveness that it births brand new minorities…or else new marginalized groups who don’t fit in or innocently use language, or try to start debates, not deemed acceptable…Or could these measures even create greater divisions than ever existed before?

And is all this what George Orwell was warning us about in his novel Nineteen Eighty-Four?

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:
