For those who enjoy the subject matter in my analysis, Stephen Dorril’s MI6 is often referenced, recommended and cited as a prime example of real-world intrigue. It’s functions as a window into how the West has operated geo-politically the last one hundred years, during the two great wars, the Cold War, and into the modern era of the “war on terrorism” so-called. The book was published in 2002, so it’s also not that out of date, and since its publication, Mark Curtis’ 2010 Secret Affairs has also been published vindicating much of Dorril’s analysis. Dorril’s book can be seen as a lengthier, massive version of the material in Curtis’ book, with Secret Affairs focusing on the West’s utilization of radical Islam. Curtis is also a former LSE graduate and Royal Institute research fellow. Dorril is also a professor and intelligence researcher, as well as a BBC consultant. The point being, neither of these authors are “conspiratorial” in their approach. While both might be said to be probably somewhat “left” in their analysis, the presentation in both are attempts at factual analysis.
The purpose of this article? To shut the mouths of the countless idiots and lazy intellectuals that sit back offering endless criticism and don’t read or know about any of this. Do I really care? No, but it’s fun to make mincemeat of the pseudo-intellectuals that sit back as armchair philosophers and critics that don’t read jack shit about jack shit, but feel the need to correct me in every possible way. You see, it’s “bad” to read books on a multitude of subjects – it’s bad to be interested in geo-politics. What you’re supposed to do is get married, get screwed over by your fat wife, then get screwed by some vulturous corporation after 40 years of servile servitude, and then proceed to your early grave through orderly euthanasia by the stategod, should you be allowed to live that long, after all your cancer-causing vaccines, Soviet-fluoridated water and GMO foods. I’ll gladly take the gadfly mantle of “failure” by this ridiculous “society.” When this all converts to the automatic technocratic technocracy, what some boomer thinks in 2012 will be on no one’s mind, other than for a good laugh. To other detractors and critics who complain that this blog is not written for a mass audience, no it isn’t. This is supposed to be the “real world” isn’t it? Grow up and read a book.
