The Daily Bell is pleased to publish this interview with David Icke (left).
Introduction: David Vaughan Icke is one of the most controversial and entertaining conspiratorial historians commenting today. Formerly a professional athlete and politician, David Icke underwent a kind of conversion in which he realized he was "a healer who had been placed on Earth for a purpose." Today, his focus is clearly on "who and what is really controlling the world." He has written numerous books that, in aggregate, have been dubbed "New Age Conspiracism" and has attracted a worldwide following. He regularly analyzes the setbacks and progress of the elite conspiracy to control the world in all its reptilian glory.You can see a previous interview with him here: David Icke on Earth's Artificial Moon and Why Humanity, Ultimately, Is One Big, Biological Internet.
Daily Bell: We've interviewed you before so now we'll try to update our readers. But give us some background for those who don't know.
David Icke: I was born in Leicester, England in 1952. I became a professional soccer player and my career ended at the age of 21, with rheumatoid arthritis. I became a journalist because it was always one of my interests, as well as soccer, since I was a kid, and worked for newspapers and then radio and then television with the BBC. I was a news presenter first of all, and then went into full time sport. While I was at the BBC I became the National Spokesperson for the British Green Party, which allowed me to see politics from the inside, and see that it was going to be an answer to nothing.
I then had some paranormal experiences which started this 22-year path of uncovering what is happening in the world and who's doing it.
Daily Bell: What are your main preoccupations?
David Icke: As I mentioned, I had some amazing paranormal experiences in 1991. They had started before that but they became really in-your-face then. But from that period, my life has been a series of constant synchronistic experiences and happenings, which has led me to information in various forms – books, documents, personal experiences,or other people – who have almost been handing me pieces of a puzzle, and they have been handed in a most effective order, to see how they fit, as quickly as possible. So this jigsaw puzzle has been put together, year on year on year, and goes on.
To use another analogy, I have been going deeper and deeper into the rabbit hole. In the early days, it was all about the fact that a network of families were manipulating world events – they controlled the banking system, the political system, the transaction of corporations, science and all the rest of it. Then it moved on into the realms that there were non-human entities behind this control system and they were orchestrating it from the shadows. And I continued my research deeper and deeper.
