This is significant because believing in what you feel to be right and not being detered by fear of public ridicule is in many ways at the core of what Icke is saying. This is why a NOT impressively endowed Icke pictures himself butt-naked on the cover of 'I am me, I am free'. He is demonstrating that he has liberated himself from the derogatory value judgements of society and the media. They mock him and he happily supplies them with more fuel to continue doing so. For this alone he deserves respect! We all want to be free of the pressure to conform, don't we?
Icke doesn't profess to be someone special. He wants us all to be exposed to the truth, whatever that might be, and to make informed choices about our lives. Each of us can then choose our own individual path. Not some collective path that everyone must follow or suffer the wrath of the majority.
I have heard accusations of anti-semitism levelled at Icke. Well if 'The Biggest Secret' is anything to go by that notion is bollocks (as we say in England). Without question David Icke is an egalatarian, a humanist and a man who believes we should celebrate diversity and treat everybody on the planet with respect and love. The reptilians need love more than anybody he says!
A lot of the criticisms in the reviews below seem to come from defensive christians who feel threatened by Icke's theories. This is understandable. Nobody likes to have their belief system questioned. But Icke in many ways presents a christian point of view. He believes in the eternal soul, he is an incredible pacifist (which you certainly can't say about many christians, despite the teachings of jesus), he believes that god is everywhere, though to him God does not represent an omnipotent individual who requires obsequience and worship as the Gods of all the major religions in the world today do. According to Icke God (or whatever you want to call it) is simply a universal energy that manifests itself as all things tangible and otherwise (including us), and it is entirely neutral morally. This energy can be used in positive ways or negative (for good or evil, if you like). The only thing Icke leaves out is the dogma and the hierarchical structure that is a huge part of all the major religions.
Some of these same reviewers question the quality of his research and the reliability of his sources (I have to say I found his research exhaustive, and exhausting!) perhaps they'd like to challenge their bible on similar grounds?
Another christian reviewer rants that this book is fear based. Ahem, ahem, Hell? Lakes of fire? Eternal damnation? Not to mention all the religious purges and massacres that pepper history. David Icke's book is about freeing yourself from fear! Fear of failing; fear of being unaccepted by the crowd; fear of dying; fear of instability, financial and otherwise. He says the only way to defeat the brotherhood's plan to enslave humanity is to open your hearts to love and leave fear, hate, anger and all the other negative emotions behind. Someone below also suggests that if the reptilian brotherhood really wanted to destroy the world they could just nuke everyone as they are invariably in positions of global power. Did you even read the book? They want global domination, not global destruction. Who the hell are they going to dominate if the waste everybody? Read the book, you might find it interesting.
David Icke is a sincere fella. He asks not that you swallow his theories mindlessly (unlike some other belief systems) and only attempts to give everybody access to earth-shattering information. You can take away what you will. David Icke reiterates that everybody has the right to believe in what they choose as long as they don't try to impose it on others. We don't live in that social climate at the moment.
Personally, I don't embrace all his theories. What I do embrace is the possibility that they are true. I embrace the possibility that there are other possibilities besides those sanctioned by governments, religions, society and particularly the media. This is common sense to anybody, surely?
David Icke is a real humanitarian. The last couple of chapters are wonderfully inspirational. Read this book. It's valuable. It's amazing.
But over this year, I've investigated everything from ancient texts to modern news. (The ancient, buried texts are the most revealing.) I've put a million miles in on my cyber journey to study this. I now have two shelves full of notebooks with printed matter. I've spent 10 times the cost of this book in paper and ink and many, many late nights reading.
All that time, all that work, all that reading has brought me to the undeniable conclusion that this book is overwhelmingly true. Terribly true. I only wish we could get the rest of the thinking world to read it. Only armed with knowlege can we change it.
Get the book. Act on it. Finding out the real truth is one of the few hopes we have. Only then can we know the RIGHT direction to save ourselves.
The author, David Icke, is British and used to be a sports commentator on British TV, commenting both soccer and snooker. Then, he became a spokesperson for the Green Party. Even later, he experienced a spiritual awakening or divine revelation, turning him into a New Age guru of sorts. He began writing books containing various conspiracy theories, including "The Truth Shall Set You Free" and "The Robots Rebellion".
Jewish organizations have accused Icke of anti-Semitism. Anarchists and Trotskyists see him as a fascist, and have busted up his meetings. In Sweden, anarchists abstained from protesting a meeting by Icke only because they regarded him as crazy. A Swedish anti-Semitic group, the Hylozoiks, translated at least one of Icke's books to Swedish. This group believes that Jews are controlled by evil aliens based at Pluto.
In this book, "The Biggest Secret", Icke implicitly distances himself from anti-Semitism by calling the evil force at work in the universe "Aryans". However, he still supports the Christian Patriot movement in the US. While the militias are not necessarily fascist, they are nevertheless a very problematic milieu. Icke might not be "far right", but his ideas can still be used in such contexts. Still, the Hylozoiks took a clue and stopped fronting for Icke.
What are the main ideas of "The Biggest Secret"? Essentialy these: In secret, Earth is ruled by multi-dimensional shape-shifting space aliens, whom Icke dubbes "Aryan reptilians". Tounge in cheek (Icke is one of the few conspiracy theorists with a sense of humor), one of the chapters of the book is titled "Don't mention the reptiles!". Icke believes that the British royal family, many US presidents, Henry Kissinger and even one Mexican president are reptilians who shape-shift to look human. He explicitly compares this to the TV show "V". These evil beings are behind all the world's religions, materialist science, most wars and financial crises, and globalization. The goal is to create a global, evil superstate. The space aliens thrive on hatred, conflict and guilt. Therefore, the solution to the conspiracy is not warfare against them, but a New Age message of Love and Forgiveness. Perhaps this will release even the reptilians in the end.
On one level, this is all wacked. On another level, however, Icke makes fascinating reading. Indeed, Icke has become a pop culture phenomenon. You simply cannot understand conspiracy theory or even New Religious Movements without reading Icke. What makes Icke unique is not so much this or that single idea. Rather, it is the fact that he weaves them all together. "The Biggest Secret" is a virtual smorgosbord of conspiracy theories, where everyone will find something he recognizes and perhaps already believes in, and much that is new besides. Perhaps this explains the stunning success of this book and its sequal "Children of the Matrix", which is very similar.
Some ideas of Icke are derived from established religion. The reptilians are presumably identical to the Asuras of Hinduism or the Archonts of Gnosticism, evil spirit-beings who out of envy want to hinder the salvation of man, keeping him bound in matter. But Icke goes one step further, claiming that the Archonts walk among us, like everyday men. That idea isn't new either. For instance, both Summit Lighthouse and the Hylozoiks claimed that certain people (read Jews) aren't real people, but robot-beings controlled from afar.
Such ideas can lead to genocide if left unchecked. By contrast, Icke is still a New Age guy who believes love is the solution. Thank you, David.
I give this book 5 stars, not because of its ideas, but simply because of Icke's tasty smorgosbord.
Well documented references.
Familiar with the scams of the IRS, fiat money, and the global government, I still was not prepared for the information, suggestions, and ideas presented in "The Biggest Secret". This book shattered my reality tunnel and I am still trying to pick up the pieces. I could not look at the world the same way again, and many events in the world become more clear, more obvious, more transparent in the manipulation.
We live in interesting times, and its time for all of us to have our belief systems challenged. If we want the world to change, it starts with us.
The most beautiful thing about this book is the final chapter. Despite the groundshaking opening chapters, the ending really brings it all together. Resonant energy, love, and fear are the glue of our universe, and the manipulation of those energies by people who would control us are very real.
Before "The Secret" was telling people about "asking and they shall receive", Icke was providing the same message. "The energy you send out will come back to you", with the crowning statement being "You create your own reality".
Its nice to see David Icke commenting on secret societies and other world issues on the History Channel and other mainstream sources. The word is out now.
Thank you, David Icke, for lighting that stick of dynamite and blasting me into the future for my continued emotional, political, and spiritual growth.
