David Icke: what do people see in him?

The origins of the imperative, "know thyself", are lost in the sands of time, but the age-old examination of human consciousness continues here.

Home-made lasagne, is like home-made moussaka.. bloomin fantastic.

That Icke guy.. he’s probably a vegan, or a pescatarian.. at the very most.

I haven't got the time to spend the time reading something that is telling me nothing, as I will never be able to get back that time, and I may need it for something important at some point in time.. Huh!? ~MagsJ

You’re suggestions and I just simply don’t mix.. like oil on water, or a very bad DJ ~MagsJ

Examine what is said, not him who speaks ~Arab proverb

Thanks for the link. I'll have to take a look at it.

I'm still only a short way in and I have to say that it's awful.


From what little I know about him, I expect that my opinion will be the same.

So my question is, why on earth is he so famous and influential?


Perhaps multiple reasons. I'd need to know who he is famous and influential among. And what that group looks like.

Absent that, I can only speculate.

One reason might be that he gives voice to alienation that many of his admirers feel. The idea that this world is ruled by dark powers that aren't even human. That's a pretty evocative image, you have to admit.

And I suspect that there's a similar motive among his louder and more aggressive critics who try to exaggerate his influence. These people might get a cheap feeling of intellectual superiority by attacking him and might thereby be expressing their own feelings of alienation from what they perceive as the common herd, where they imagine that Icke's ideas are far more influential than they really are.

So I suspect that both his admirers and many of his critics share reasons for exaggerating his importance and influence.

But that's all my own speculation without any real data on what his influence really is.
