David Vaughan Icke is an English writer, public speaker, and former media personality best known for his views on what he calls "who and what is really controlling the world". Describing himself as the most controversial speaker and author in the world, he has written 16 books explaining his position, dubbed "New Age Conspiracism", and has attracted a substantial following across the political spectrum. His 533-page The Biggest Secret (1999) has been called the conspiracy theorist's Rosetta Stone.
Icke was a well-known BBC television sports presenter and spokesman for the Green Party, when he had an encounter in 1990 with a psychic who told him that he was a healer placed on Earth for a purpose. In April 1991 he announced on the BBC's Terry Wogan show that he was the son of God, and predicted that the world would soon be devastated by tidal waves and earthquakes. The show changed his life, turning him practically overnight from a respected household name into an object of ridicule.
He continued nevertheless to develop his ideas, and in four books published over seven years - The Robots' Rebellion (1994), And the Truth Shall Set You Free (1995), The Biggest Secret (1999), and Children of the Matrix (2001) - set out a moral and political worldview that combines New-Age spiritualism with a passionate denunciation of what he sees as totalitarian trends in the modern world.
The ridicule he experienced on the Terry Wogan show in the early nineties changed his life forever and set him, more rigidly, on his journey of self-discovery and made him even more determined to continue his lines of investigation.
Now, over a quarter of a century later, he has become one of the world’s most well respected free-thinkers and alternative teachers. Many of the controversial topics that were once considered the ramblings of a man losing touch with reality have, over the years, proven to be frighteningly accurate.
If you have discounted David Icke to this point it might be time to plug in and join millions of people across the globe that have become avid followers of his work.
