As it turns out, much of what I thought I knew about historical events is not actually true. Or, it is, but only partly true.
In fact, as I’ve come to realise, the official story is almost always fabricated nonsense. I have covered a number of falsifications, from 9/11 to JFK’s assassination to the Titanic to Marilyn Monroe’s death to Sandy Hook to the moon landing and more.
But one event that is conspicuously swept under the carpet and rarely discussed is the mass shooting that took place inside (and outside) the mosque in Christchurch, New Zealand. The official story, which I’ve copied and pasted from that bastion of truth, Wikipedia, goes something like the following.
For the purposes of my conversation with Max Igan, what matters is the “by a lone gunman” bit, which is an outright lie, Max argues.
An obvious red flag is the fact that the New Zealand government prohibits its citizens from watching the video and from reading the killer’s manifesto.
Apparently, according to the
dictatorship government, watching the video is “objectionable” and everybody must be protected from freedom of choice and critical thinking.
And the government’s public relations wing, the media, agrees and believes that only journalists should be permitted to watch the video because journalists are
establishment hacks the arbiters of truth and totally care about facts and the mental wellbeing of readers.
Max Igan is a normal man with an incredible ability to analyse the world around us. His website, The Crowhouse, with its hilarious 90s-looking HTML design, has a boatload of interesting content, including his extensive critique of the Christchurch incident (the YouTube version of which was quickly removed).
Which is what Max chatted to me about.
