Brave New World Scenario
#1
Question 
First I'd like to congratulate you on a complete and functional Website. As a backend Web developer I do have some ideas as to how the site could scale better to cope with the higher traffic you may get if the tech giants continue to censor the Internet, but anyway your current developer has done a wonderful job with open source solutions.

I'm a natural sceptic, but have for years steered clear of David Icke fans, because I feel all too often he says what people want to hear rather than coherent analysis based on verifiable facts. The trouble with hard facts is that they don't always confirm your pet theories and may hurt your gentle sensitivities. However, my thinking has morphed from more classic green left politics (I voted Green as recently as 2016) to a free-thinking libertarian in an age of rapid technological and cultural change. Hard facts have proven me wrong. We're not running out of oil and technological progress has accelerated rather than stalled. Now I see the biggest threat to humanity and liberal enlightenment is not an imminent technocalypse, but mounting authoritarianism, surveillance and an assault on what it means to be a living, breathing and above all independent-minded human being.

Back in the 1980s I joined the SWP, briefly the RCP (who later became Spiked Online) before settling down as antiwar activist posing as an ecologist. I could never toe the line of any vanguard party. Now I struggle to believe naive social justice warriors campaign not just against free speech, but against the glorious natural diversity of humanity, by replacing real biological categories with arbitrary psychiatric categories. 

I don't use Facebook, so I'd be happy to join your forums. I expanded on my Brave New World thesis (an emerging reality rather mere fantasy) at http://www.outsider-insight.org.uk/2017/...world-test 

I look forward to listening to more of Richie's podcasts, which I now follow with greater interest since  YouTube censored your show.

Has your interest changed again since Richie has re-submitted to youtube.
