A Refreshing New Look At The World Of Conspiracy
I first stumbled across the name Jon Ronson back in 2006 after seeing Alex Jones' Dark Secrets inside Bohemian Grove. Since then ive seen more of Alex's depressing rather sensationalist DVDs than i feel is right for a balanced soul and mind.
Jon Ronsons' Them,is the perfect antidote for those who need a time out from all the scaremongering and terrifying preaching thats rife within the conspiracy world. He seems to be able to see the paranoia and fear from both sides of the spectrum with equal humour and sometimes frustration. He meets with many extremists and fundamentalists,showing their human sides aswell as their many flaws as they go about their everyday business.
What is evident is that many of the people interviewed,do all agree on one thing. That a powerful group of very rich and therefore influential,well resourced and connected people rule and manipulate the world for their own ends,which is shown to be not entirely false form what is shown within these pages,but also not as straight forward and planned out as conspiracy theorists may want you to believe.
Before reading this book i had the opportunity to see the documentary seires that accompanied this book,which was entitled 'secret rulers of the world'. The series is very similar to the book,but the book features a few more exploits such as meeting the KKK and Ian Paisley among others,but after having the seires so fresh in my mind then reading the book i found there to be one or two inaccuracies in the wording of somethings and the settings in which other things were actually said when written within the book,very trivial but can alter the way you perceived things to be said. Seeing as Jon also points out how this can be quiet annoying to Jim Tucker when he miss quoted him,i thought it was worth a mention.
Other than that i found Them Adventures with extremists to be a very compulsive read and found it hard to put down. Not too many people try to write about this sort of thing in a even handed way,and Jon Ronson does a pretty good job,although he dose seem to lean towards the globalists at Bohemian Grove....or is that me just thinking hes become one of them? : ) by Wayne
