Tom Secker and I joined Kira Young once again to discuss our new podcast series The CIA and Hollywood.  We discussed our reasons for creating the show as well as where we will be taking it in second season.  Later we get into some of the cultural memes that the CIA is currently introducing into popular culture, with a particular emphasis on female characters in TV.

The Bridge with Kira: Alt-media cults and more

Tom Secker and I had the great pleasure of joining Kira Young on her radio show The Bridge.  This time around we continued our discussion of cults by focusing on  those within the alt-media.  We took at a look at how and why cults seem to flourish within the alt-media, with a particular focus on the role that the Internet plays in reaching out to potential members.
Later we looked at the cult of personality around people such as Alex Jones, and how he is able to operate at the level he does today.  We then moved onto a well known figure in the alt-media, Stefan Molyneux, and delved deeply into the cult he has created with the Free Domain Radio community.  Tom and I discussed the fact that much of Molyneux’s cult activity is masked by his libertarian/anarchist ideology.  We zeroed in on his obsession with destroying one’s own family structure (De-Fooing) so that one can join his own digital family where he is the guru in charge.  We also discussed  whether or not Molyneux is  a psychopath.
 Later the three of us explored how many of the more extreme views in alt-media (reptilians, ancient aliens) tend to isolate people from their families and friends, which ultimately makes them vulnerable prey for cults.  I rounded off our discussion with a look at the role that cults such as the Moonies and The Church Universal Triumphant have played in crafting and co-opting the alt-media community.

The Bridge with Kira featuring Pearse Redmond and Tom Secker

On Saturday, February 21, Tom Secker and I had the great pleasure of joining Kira Young on her live radio show The Bridge.  We started out with a discussion of the recent surge of neo-nazism within the alt-community and what this means for alternative media.  Later on, we explored the fascination the Left has with Vladim Putin and all things Russian.  We then moved on to the subject of cults and their connections with the intelligence services.  I went into some detail regarding Scientology and various cultic connections to the CIA.  In particular, I discussed psychic research being conducted by the CIA at Stanford Research Institute, headed by two high-ranking Scientologists, Harold Puthoff and Ingo Swann.  I related how the CIA was funding this research while the FBI was deeply involved in infiltrating and arresting high-ranking members of the cult.  Later, we explored the LSD movement and the CIA orchestration behind it, as well as the interesting Scientologists who were part of that movement.  We rounded off the conversation by looking at the current drug culture within the alt-movement.  All three of us gave our thoughts on the popularity of  DMT and ayahuasca, and how the promotion of these power psychoactive drugs may be part of a much wider plan to derail the alternative community.  We also reflected on how cannabis culture has changed from a movement promoting personal freedom into a cult of getting stoned all the time.  Finally Tom and I talked about our new podcast series The CIA and Hollywood, and what to expect from it.
