- A Message to New “Conspiracy Theorists” featuring a lecture of sorts by James Corbett to new “Conspiracy Theorists” among American young people who are only beginning to question the reports that media corporations flood TV and internet reports. This is an addition to the indoctrination they receive throughout their education and much of their entertainment. (This is a best post.) My commentary follows:
Elsewhere I have noted the huge task that younger generations have to overcome many years of brainwashing, and I doubted that they would overcome this systematic brainwashing. I have been encouraged by many of the comments made by Corbett in this video presentation. I also noticed that he admitted only starting to question some of his beliefs in 2006. (I started in 1955.) And I also noticed that he is starting to point to "oligarchs" as the source of evil instead of merely governments as is usually the case with anarchists. This is much closer to what I believe is the truth: a ruling capitalist class that controls not only the government, but every institution. By doing this, he is providing examples of his own growth out out swamp of lies and disinformation that he has experienced all of his life. Beyond this, he is offering specific examples of very sound advice to the younger generation who are starting to question.
