The two Icke/Wogan interviews resembles the classic story of the kid who gets bullied goes away and bulks up and then comes back to take on the bully. While Icke’s physical bulk doesn’t look so good his intellectual bulk blows Terry Wogan away. David Icke is often criticised for being ‘off the wall’ in some of his expositions about global conspiracies and many would say that this ‘craziness’ detracts from the useful information that he puts out. Personally I would rather have Icke around than not have him. Icke says that he ‘joins the dots’ and while we might not agree with his interpretation of the pattern that emerges he alerts us to the presence of an underlying pattern.
This is the famous 2006 ‘return match’ between Dacid Icke and Terry Wogan. Terry Wogan’s ignorance is appalling but maybe, if these two can be seen as opposite poles of a continuum, then people are moving towards Icke. Alice Walker’s recent endorsement of Icke for his courage as a free thinker is remarkable and refreshing.
I found this video on Films for Action. It claims to be a perspective on the West by North Koreas. I think there is some dispute about that but it comes across as a good ‘outside the culture’ perspective.
Another ‘outside perspective’ is given by David Icke in his Oxford Union talk:
Both these films are long and say much the same thing but I found them worth watching. Icke is often dismissed because he sometimes talks about quite outre things but he does a good job in opening many people’s eyes to the ‘Matrix’.
People are sometimes scared of David Icke because he is regarded as crazy but I think this video shows that he is an engaging speaker who is informed and informative even if we don’t go along with all of his assertions. Here he shows how the power to create money has created the power dynamic a minuscule number of people or families control the world. The Occupy movement calls them the 1%. Icke argues that they are manufacturing the financial crisis in order to consolidate power, that their agenda includes having a world bank, a world government and a world army.
