They have always been engaged in social and political issues from world finance to global warming. They also worry about what the future holds for their grandchildren.

Emerging victim testimonies of child abuse by British MPs

There have been many allegations of child abuse made over the past couple of years against various members of parliament and prominent media figures in Britain. But the media coverage has been minimal. Perhaps their silence is due to big media and the government being potentially implicated in this long running cover up.

Since the iconic British celebrity Jimmy Savile was posthumously uncovered as being a serial pedophile, necrophile and procurer of children in 2013, there have been more and more victims coming out about abuse in the 70s and 80s by figures of power both in politics and the media in Britain. It’s likely that the victims hadn’t spoken up until recently because they were put under the impression that nobody would believe them — they also feared for their and their families’ safety.

From this video you can see that Jimmy’s sexual appetite was common knowledge to anybody in the know.Read the rest

[Poll] Favorite Vietnam Protest Song

Of course, we couldn’t list every single song, so you’ll have to choose from the few we picked. If we missed your favorite, feel free to let us know in the comments.

"Narrated by Sean Penn and based on the work of media critic and best-selling author Norman Solomon, WAR MADE EASY reaches into the Orwellian memory hole to expose 50 years of government spin and media collusion that has dragged our country into one war after another from Vietnam to Iraq."

A Brief History of disinformation® and Its Sister Labels

History – disinformation® and Formation of TDC Entertainment

TDCFormed in 1997, The Disinformation Company is an independent media company that produces and distributes quality documentary films. The company’s lead brand disinformation® also includes the blog we’ve all come to know and love (or hate) and the Disinformation Books imprint, now operated by Red Wheel/Weiser.

In 2011, we formed True Mind Films. While disinformation® focuses primarily on politics and social activism, True Mind “is dedicated to healthy living, environmental wellness and personal development.” Some of its films include Bee People, How it All Began: The Origins of the Universal Healing Tao and Planeat.

In 2012, a third label was born: Shelter Island, our home for quality documentaries and special interest video that don’t quite fit the mould of disinformation® or True Mind. Releases include Doctors of the Dark Side, Journey of the Universe, and American Jesus.

To unite all of these labels, in 2013 we changed the company’s trading name to TDC Entertainment.… Read the rest

For the Age of the Information Wars, Some Pertinent Quotes Regarding the Future of Humanity

via chycho

assata shakur quote_thumb

We’re in the midst of a war on information. This war is being conducted on multiple fronts; to control the flow of public discourse on social networks, to control the flow of information on the Internet, to centralize power and continue the flow of disinformation by mainstream media (2, 3), to control public education and continue the indoctrination of the youth (2), to dismiss evidence and defund scientific research, and to acquire all private information for all peoples of all nations and consolidate that information into the data bases of centralized governments (1, 2, 3, 4, 5).

Below you will find some pertinent quotes regarding this war – the war that will decide the future of humanity. We should heed the warnings given and implement the solutions provided.

Satanic Panic History Lessons Continue At BBC and IO9

PIC: AussieGall (CC)

A growing number of influential publications have offered their own takes on the 1980s Satanic Panic since the March 21st publication of our history of our own (“Mazes, Monsters, Charlatans, Satan and Suicide: A Short History of the Satanic Panic“). It’s been amazing to see the Panic become the topic du jour, especially at large, popular websites like IO9 and the BBC. All I can say is that there must be something in the air besides pollen and the sweet, minty fresh smell of chemtrails for so many sites to tackle the same, relatively obscure topic in such a short amount of time! Whatever signal is in the air, clearly we’re all receiving it loud and clear. Must be one of those “Hundredth Monkey” things. Good that more people are hearing about the panic, no matter where they hear it from, but cheers to you, Disinfonauts, for getting the story here first.… Read the rest

Interview With Mark Pilkington On UFO Documentary ‘Mirage Men’ And The Games Intel Agencies Play

Mirage_Men_posterMark Pilkington’s 2010 book Mirage Men is one of the more credible takes I’ve read on the topic of unidentified flying objects. Pilkington alleges that many of the stories we’ve heard about alien visitors and flying saucers are part of a deliberate campaign of disinformation created by intelligence agencies to cover up secret military technology and clandestine operations.  These “mirage men” have manipulated some UFO believers to the point of madness and beyond through the use of fabricated “evidence” and psychological warfare techniques, all in the name of national security.

Pilkington, along with directors John Lundberg, Roland Denning, and Kypros Kyprianou, just released a documentary based on the book. Also titled Mirage Men, the film expands on the premise of the book and feature interviews with some of the mirage men and their victims. It’s now available to rent online courtesy of Perception Management Productions, Random Media, and Yekra.… Read the rest

An exerpt from my interview with Author, fellow Disinfonaut and amazing beard-haver, Gabriel D. Roberts:

“… Let’s be honest, there’s a lot to hate, especially from fundamentalist perspectives… It’s hard to break out of it and once you do, you violently oppose it because you recognize that you were under a spell… I didn’t know what to do and I didn’t know where to go and directly from there, I went into a drug binge in which I was trying to bury my feelings… But, what I’ve found is whatever you want to call ‘God’ it’s much bigger than the things that are in these little books…”

You know those beautiful and rare occasions where you speak to someone for the first time and find that your personal philosophies seem to line up almost completely?  For me, Author and fellow Disinformation contributor Gabriel D.Read the rest

Douglas Rushkoff Looks Back On His Graphic Novel ‘Testament’

Screen Shot 2014-02-21 at 1.06.01 PMDouglas Rushkoff is a well-known social critic and media theorist. While he may be best known for nonfiction works like Present Shock: When Everything Happens Now and Open Source Democracy, his bibliography is a remarkably diverse one, with entries into prose fiction and even graphic novels.

Recently publisher DC Vertigo released a collected digital omnibus of his graphic novel Testament. (Find it here.)

From the imagination of best-selling author Douglas Rushkoff, one of the most iconoclastic and acclaimed minds of our era, comes a graphic novel series that exposes the “real” Bible as it was actually written, and reveals how its mythic tales are repeated today.

Grad student Jake Stern leads an underground band of renegades that uses any means necessary to combat the frightening threats to freedom that permeate the world. They employ technology, alchemy, media hacking and mysticism to fight a modern threat that has its roots in ancient stories destined to recur in the modern age.
