One of the world’s most loved and mocked public figures; the former BBC TV sports presenter, author and speaker, David Icke, has come a long way since that infamous Wogan interview of 1991, achieving something of a cult status if Saturday’s marathon Wembley performance is anything to go by.
Warming to his theme, Awaken, Icke wasted no time hammering home the idea that we are living in a madhouse we have accepted as normal.
“There’s no need for a single person to be hungry or homeless on this planet,” he admonished. “Most people are caught up in the program. Others who can access another reality are called mad.”
The vast majority of us are unknowingly suffering from an unhealthy slave mentality, he said. We are experiencing the psychological phenomena of cognitive dissonance, where our beliefs and behaviour are in conflict, and Stockholm syndrome – the traumatic bonding with a captor. This was all cheerfully summed up as “The Bamboozle.”
A huge conference if you want to have arguments to break out of being “normal”.
