Dinesh D’Souza, the director of the second most successful political documentary of all time, “2016: Obama’s America,” spoke at Amherst College regarding American exceptionalism.
At the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA), in Los Angeles, a gigantic, carnivorous flag with torn ends was waving in an artificial wind created by enormous propellers. There were no visitors at the exhibition. For a while, I thought that in all this huge space I was totally alone. But soon I noticed two figures in black torn dresses, moving slowly, in semi-darkness, desperately clinging to the walls. Backs bent, they passed by the bookstore right near the place where someone had put a small sign on the wall that said, “I cannot breathe!” Most likely it was a performance, a desperate protest action of one man and one woman, a performance against this giant all-devouring flag. “I cannot breath!” a man shouted before he died before he was murdered by the regime. “I cannot write!” I thought.

The rise in academic book bannings and firings is compounded by a growing disregard for scholarship itself. Recently, I found out that my work is mentioned in a book that has been banned, in effect, from the schools in Tucson, Arizona.

For over 20 years Think AboutIt has been trying to help people to think for themselves. To learn that not everything your told is the truth. This site started when there was not a lot of alternative information out there, and finding it took many hours, days or months, sometimes years, to locate only the smallest little bits. This was the time of just a few outspoken persons out there, and having this information could also mean trouble. Big Trouble! Think Aboutit was one of the first to speak about the Underground Bases, Aliens, Alternative Spirituality, UFOs and other weird things to Think About. We shared the Branton papers, works from William Cooper, Bill Hamilton, and many other Truth Walkers. We thank you and the many more who have helped change the web. Some of the info is from websites long gone. Some of it is outdated and dates prophesied have passed but […]
