The Norman Conquests

History tells us some ragtag Scandinavian tribe came out of nowhere in the 10th Century and within a few decades conquered northern France, England, Sicily and Syria. Quite a feat. What history doesn't usually tell us is that four most powerful secret societies in the world would emerge from these Norman kingdoms. France produced the Knights Templar (originally composed largely of Normans), England produced the Freemasons, Sicily produced the Mafia and Syria produced the Assassins.


Quite a coincidence, don't you think?

  1. Hi Chris,
    I've enjoyed reading your blog. Interesting thoughts, the likes of which are missing on a certain board these days.

  2. Very interesting these Normans. I only recently found out that my grandmother was a de Reymes, wealthy Suffolk merchants who built Aydon Castle in Northumberland, England.

    BTW, enjoyed the interviews on Red-Ice and Vyzygoth. Thank you.

  3. I enjoyed your interview with vyzygoth too, but I was disappointed with your comments about Alan Watt. Bill Deagle is one strange, sick dude, but Alan Watt is very good about giving references for his assertions so that the hearty among us can go read for ourselves. You on the other hand said it like, "I can't imagine that..." a new world order exists because how can internationalists work together, and all listening to Alan Watt does is make you terrified.

    Have you read any of the books Alan Watt recommends? You know the X-Files, apparently, but don't seem to be versed in Z Big or Bertrand Russell. Less TV more books.

  4. Well I can't leave this comment as the last. I don't know what Chris said about Watt but find Alan Watt totally ignorant when it comes to consciousness. And there were no references in an interview I heard and responded to, Alan has yet to respond hehe.

    "all listening to Alan Watt does is make you terrified." Because all he seems to do is scaremonger.

    I agree Bertrand Russel is a very interesting (and sick) individual to check out :p

    here are some quotes for instance

  5. Hi Dedroidify,
    You said you "find Alan Watt totally ignorant when it comes to consciousness." Wow, where to go with that one? I would have to be suspicious of any one claiming to be "smart" about consciousness, given how subjective and personal that would necessarily be. Not to give you a hard time, but don't you think? He's certainly no fan of the New Age as he believes--and gives evidence for it--that it is a contrivance, an opiate for the new masses. Are you part of the "synchromystic" Jake Kotze, Steve Wilner "I-AM-the-illuminati" crowd?

    "There were no references in an interview I heard and responded to..." Give Alan a few listens and I'll bet he'll impress you with a long reading list. He has referred to MANY books and even films.

    "'all listening to Alan Watt does is make you terrified.' Because all he seems to do is scaremonger." Of course, if he's right it's not "scaremongering". It would be nice if you refuted him on the basis of evidence.

    "I agree Bertrand Russel is a very interesting (and sick) individual to check out :p"

    And here we agree! Throw in Arthur Koestler, Zbgniev Bzrzinski, H.G. Wells, B.F. Skinner, and everybody's favorite: Aldous Huxley.

    Thanks, mon. Everything here is said without malice.

  6. Eric sorry I didn't get back to you, but as Chris linked this article again today I reply.

    The new age is BS, yet the new age isn't "consciousness", and even if I explore those synchromystic avenues I don't consider myself to be part of any crowd as I always question everything.

    Some of Alan Watt his greatest hits are: * psychedelics were released to induce mass psychosis and fragmented personalities which are easier to control
    * What incredible naivite some of them would end up having for a personality, so naive and they'd be told anything they'd believe, as though the censor part of their brain was simply gone, and they'd be more suggestible and more easily led
    Anyone who's taken psychedelics knows this is as far fetched as can be.

    Alan Watt seems to be the atheist-conspiracy-go-to-guy just as Tsarion and the others are the ones for the new agers...

    Another hilarious bit is Alan Watt is a cigaret smoker and claims he keeps doing it because it reduces the effects of chemtrails, I can't make this stuff up, but I can laugh at it for hours.

    What scaremongering is, is talking about all the negativity in his dramatic way without providing solutions.

    Eric:
    Even casual research reveals that the intelligence agencies heavily promoted drug use. And it worked (along with dividing and conquering the mass of people opposed to imperial war through social "reforms" e.g. feminism, racism, etc.). Watt is very clear on this.

    Eric: I don't think I could ever describe Watt as dramatic. But the thing on no solutions puzzles me. He makes it clear that our situation is the result of being wrapped in a spider's web that has taken centuries to build, and there are NO easy solutions. Mostly, he asks us to envision what kind of world we WANT, before we take the wrong actions.

  8. I used to be very much interested in Watt's work. I thought he had very interesting insights on the nature of governmental systems. It did bother me that he offers no real response to the grim tableaus he presents- as did the fact that he poo-pooed any type of communal or collective action. Then he decided to do business with the very people and organizations he once decried as pied pipers and disinfo agents and I realized he was just another conspiratainer. Oh, well. Conspiracy theory is pretty redundant these days anyway.
