I intend this article to be as short as possible. I hope it will be the last time I have to write one like it, but of course it won't be; therefore I plan to expend as little time and energy as possible on it, the exact opposite of a lot of other people's intentions in the Truth movement. If you need more information then read the background links. I've been aware of this issue for some time but have only just decided to comment for the reasons I go into below and in those background links. In the aftermath of the downfall of The People's Voice, regrettably but predictably, fingers began pointing. Why had it happened? Who was to blame? Where's the donation money gone? David Icke himself was one of the first to speak publicly, see: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l4-91aX701Y. The principle antagonist in David's narrative of the TPV debacle is Sonia Poulton, an independent journalist who, unlike most of her fellow newsmen, speaks openly about conspiratorial ideas. She has struck back vocally against David Icke's accusations, see: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z_32yFRi7OQ, and: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G6F4bewllQ4. As always, I leave HPANWO readers to look at both sides and make up their own minds up. The point here is not who's right and who's wrong, the point is that again... yet again... we have a personal dispute that has snowballed into a fully blown truth mob. Once again a cluster of supporters are gathering around both figures waving placards and throwing paving stones at each other. Once again both sides expect everybody else to join in. Once again, they will try to press-gang the undecided masses into adopting their cause, often by using rhetoric, moral blackmail, threats and insults to force compliance. It wouldn't be so bad if they at least behaved sensibly and respectfully towards others. But no, you have to join one side or the other; "you're either with us or with them!" Anybody who doesn't want to get involved, like me, is immediately accused of indecision and weakness. Either that or one side will assume that you're on the other by default. Here's an example: The other day I was invited to join a Facebook group called David Icke is Full of Shit!; when I declined I was immediately branded with the label of "not wanting to hear alternative views!" about my "messiah!". Messiah? Do I really need to explain what a ridiculous and unfair thing that is to say? Regular HPANWO readers know very well about my changing viewpoint and mixed feelings related to David Icke because of my review of his recent Wembley lecture, see: http://hpanwo-tv.blogspot.co.uk/2014/11/david-icke-live-2014.html. Why on Earth would anybody claim that David is my messiah? It's because the person who said that is a supporter of Sonia Poulton. I've not said a bad word about Sonia Poulton, in fact the only time I've referenced her at all in the past was to praise her, see: http://hpanwo-voice.blogspot.co.uk/2014/04/uniforms-for-unemployed.html, but it doesn't matter. Because I've not joined her "side!" in this one-to-one tussle she's having with David Icke. I am therefore completely against her, and religiously and devotedly supporting David Icke. In a truth mob every point is polarized; in fact it's only a matter of time before supporters of David's "side!" will accuse me of being an Icke-basher, of being of his ex-wife Pam's accomplice, of sexually fancying Sonia Poulton, or of working for Richard Warman's legal campaign against David. You see? Polarization! Truth mobs are not capable of rational analysis and discourse; everything is black and white. You're either with them or against them, see: http://hpanwo-voice.blogspot.co.uk/2015/01/debating.html. Unfortunately truth mobbing is taking up a huge amount of time and energy that could be spent more productively, and this situation is getting worse. The background articles below on Danielle la Verite, Kevin Annett and Darren Perks have had some of the highest viewing figures, and the most comments, of anything I've ever posted. There are even certain people within our community who now do nothing else except truth mobbing. They've effectively appointed themselves the amateur armchair policemen of the conspirasphere.
What I find even sadder and more insulting is when I'm accused of cowardice, indecision and betrayal, by both sides of course, because I won't drop everything else I'm doing and answer their call to arms. I have a few questions for those people. If I do as you ask and join in your crusade, then I won't be able to help with the geoengineering campaign, like I did here: http://hpanwo-voice.blogspot.co.uk/2012/12/london-chemtrails-awareness-conference.html. If I do as you ask and join in your crusade, then I won't be able to spread the word about children being abused in care homes, see: http://hpanwo-radio.blogspot.co.uk/2014/11/programme-112-podcast-brian-clare.html. If I do as you ask and join in your crusade then I won't be able to host the Exopolitics events, see: http://hpanwo-voice.blogspot.co.uk/2014/05/exopol-mc.html. If I do as you ask and join in your crusade then I won't be able to make films about the erosion of free society, like this one: http://hpanwo-tv.blogspot.co.uk/2014/07/loitering-without-intent.html. Make no mistake, this is what you are asking of me! I promise! I swear! When we beat this New World Order I will dedicate five years of my life to writing a multi-volume epic about who is a shill and who's not, who did tit and who did tat, who's the king of the castle and who's the dirty rascal; I give you my word! But when I see those white lines in the sky, false flag terrorism, GMO crops growing through the gaps between the bricks in our houses, children being murdered, our economy being pickaxed into depression... I hope you will understand if until then I reprioritize somewhat.
