I was iffy about 9/11, until Obama became president and announced that it was a terrorist attack. Everything about the Saudi royal family leaving the country the day after, from Michael Moore's film is still true.

I do ascribe to the notion that Israel, uses the holocaust to justify mistreatment of Palestinians. That the US churches encourage conflict there, to trigger the Apocalypse. From the books Holocaust Industry by Norman Finklestien and Have a Nice Doomsday by Nicolas Guyatt.

I read a really long book about AIDS, that said Western Dr.'s used chimpanzee tissue to make unpasteurized oral vaccines. Most of the internet says, Russia started that theory, to make the third world angry with the US. The book is the The River by Edward Hooper.

I believe John Perkins story Confessions of an Economic Hitman. Is that a conspiracy theory too?

I do think that exploring ideas on the fringe, is important for discovery. Believing the same crazy theory everyone else does is a total waste of time.

I'm in school, so I don't get to read like I used to.

Thanks for the literature. I will get me one or the other. What would be your favorite to advise someone to read? Have a Nice Doomsday and The River sound really compelling.

The main points of The River are in this documentary.

It is a very long, sad, book to try and slug through. Most of it has been debunked or swept under the rug. Too much effort to put into something that might be wrong. Confessions of an Economic Hitman is the best, and most legitimate.
Have a Nice Doomsday is a great look at why Americans would rather end the world, than cut back consumption.

John Perkins' book also has a great pace, and some exciting sleuth like elements. It is one of the easier books to get my friends into.
