SOTT Podcast: New Age Physics

Discussion on the use of physics in support of New Age concepts with Dr. Arkadiusz Jadczyk, author of eighty scientific papers and three books in the field of quantum theory, and winner of multiple awards for scientific achievements and excellence in teaching. For many years now, ideas from quantum physics have been picked up and used to support many ideas in the New Age movement. Is it really possible to create our own reality? Can we bring "love and light" by simply ignoring the darkness? Most importantly, does quantum physics really support any of these ideas? These are just some of the very questions we ask Dr. Jadczyk in our latest podcast.

Sheeple

Support the Troops - Because It's Damn Sure George Bush Doesn't

The average age of an graduating American Marine is 19. During their boot camp training, they are effectively brainwashed and taught the finer points of killing without remorse, or "for fun" as many of them have described it. While officially classed as "men", when we factor in the severely retarded state of the American society, and particularly the American education system that spawned them, the recruits are in fact little more than children, albeit trained killer children.

Small wonder then that, when let loose on the streets of Iraq with a gun and a Humvee and told to "go get some bad guys", these gun-toting grunts should end up killing and torturing indiscriminately, and in doing so, stoke the flames of hatred and anger among the Iraqi people.

Of course, we realise that the average American soldier that blows the head of an Iraqi child cannot be held fully accountable for his misdeeds. If it were not for the elitist social policies, dehumanising military policies, Orwellian education policies and the fascist propaganda of US government officials, there would be far fewer impoverished, dumbed- down, aggressive and wholly deceived teenage American boys to sign up to fight the wars for profit of their so-called leaders.

SOTT Podcast: 911: The Ultimate Truth

Interview with Laura Knight-Jadczyk about her new book 911: The Ultimate Truth, a look at the deep story of the events that have so marked the last four years. Conventional explanations set 911 in the context of the so-called "Clash of Civilisations" (if you agree with the official conspiracy theory that it was carried out by 19 Arabs guided by a madman holed up in an Afghani cave) or as part of a "New Pearl Harbor" to destabilise the Middle East and to ensure US control of world oil resources (if you disagree with the official story and think it was an inside job). While control of resources and reshaping the political map in the interests of a small group played a part on one level, 911 represents the opening of the End Game in a plan that stretches back thousands of years, a game in which we are all pawns. Laura delves into 911: The Ultimate Truth.

SOTT Podcast: Fundamentalist Christianity

Discussion of the roots and global implications of fundamentalist Christianity. Amidst the chaos in Washington recently, almost no one is mentioning the power and influence of the fundamentalist Christians that Bush has so often appealed to in order to push through his policies. This week, we reveal the varying rolls that "fundies" play in the halls of power in Washington, the relationship of fundamentalist Christianity to Zionism, and the long term global implications of these groups on the war on terror and the overall Middle East conflict.

SOTT Podcast: The Role of Education in the US (Part 2 of 2)

The second part of a two part discussion with guests from the US, UK, and Canada about the differences between the US educational system and those of other countries. This week, we take a more detailed look at education in the US, and what that system has done to facilitate the current slide of freedom and democracy in the Land of the Free. With the help of our guests, we also get an idea of how the US compares to other countries not only in education, but also in terms of the likelihood that the population can be hoodwinked by the Powers that Be.
