When you deal with parapolitics and conspiracy theories (however you want to define that phrase), you not only face scrutiny from institutions and people eager to debunk your analysis, but you traffic in uncertainty. There are truths across the entire spectrum of stories, and settling on one of them would be dishonest. Was Tim McVeigh a Manchurian Candidate who was the byproduct of MKUltra-style mental and physical manipulation that stripped him of agency?

Do yourself a favor and immerse yourself in the vibrant PAINFULLY DETAILED world Wendy Painting has blessed the world with. The experience and their reactions to it were filmed, and then played back to them repeatedly throughout the course of the study. i adore how each section is sort of grounded on establishing how Everything really does seem Connected, then walking you back, confronting the evidence, providing background for the behaviors and motives and data, revealing how flawlessly all the events and their connective tissue just happen to coincidentally align--maybe. In 1967, he graduated and was recognized by the school for writing the best dissertation in his field that year. The next year he joined the Civil Air Patrol in New Orleans, a right-wing-leaning organization, but surely one perceived as patriotic.

Combined with some of the PTSD and violence from that war (the scope of which I never knew - the Gulf War was merely a footnote in American education), it's no wonder how thousands of soldiers came away sick and confused, untrusting and destabilized. While in the Marines, he was trained as a radar operator, obtained a security clearance, qualified as a sharpshooter and took (but did poorly on) a Russian language exam.

The packages contained his 35,000-word manifesto entitled Industrial Society and Its Future, commonly referred to as the "Unabomber Manifesto. While this is a book about McVeigh, it also takes you on various detours that not only tie back to its main character, but stand alone as incredible writing on their respective topics. I have several pages of this bookmarked for personal reference, including the chapter on UFO culture, along with the Paul Bennewitz story. Eventually, in September 1995, after he threatened to kill more people because outlets had delayed publishing his writings, the New York Times and Washington Post complied with his demands. Writing long before the emergence of the World Wide Web, the authors attributed America's ID epidemic to the unique stresses of modern life, especially information overload, as well as other isolated or ongoing traumatic experiences that, in combination, "lead to the physical breakdown of a person's entire ability to make sense of his experience," making them more suggestible to outside influences and rendering them "prone to uncontrollable urges and sudden outbursts of violence.

As many in the crowd jeered Wallace and even threw tomatoes at him, Bremer feigned support for him by loudly cheering and applauding. at times, however, i'll admit that i skimmed a bit, and the lack of brevity could get a little exhausting. It doesn't present any alternative theories or meaningfully challenge the Lone Wolf angle that McVeigh and many others so eagerly want to canonize. a long weird trip into the heart of all the dark shit that was floating around between the end of the cold war and 9/11, a fascinating and under-discussed period.

More attracted to the idea of killing Nixon, on April 11 of that year, Bremer traveled to Ottawa, Canada where Nixon was making a public appearance but decided against killing him due to the high level of security there. However, the book did provide some information I didn’t know as well as legitimate thoughts to ponder. Whether it's UFOs, Gulf War Syndrome, Cold War America, far-right subcultures, covert intelligence operations or human tracking implants, Painting leaves no stone unturned. West, painstaking excavation of the first gulf war, and incredible deconstruction of PatCon and its bastards there is so much juice in this book with so many reverberations in the world we inhabit now in 2023, the book has an almost oracular quality.

i figured out some things about the nature of historian as concealer rather than revealer, but more importantly, things just got boring, and i eventually headed back home. And that’s a real shame, because the tangible things I did learn are extremely important and should be more widely known in history and culture. This volume goes far, far beyond shallow "conspiracy-theory": fundamental questions about the nature of America, the motives of our leaders, and the institutions that ostensibly keep us safe are posed in the internal dialogue of an expansive yet coherent detailing of the highly disturbing internal affairs, evasions, obfuscations, and sometimes even blatant crimes of the various three-letter-acronyms that have become so (perniciously? Fascinating book with tons of great information on Us history as told through the life of Timothy McVeigh. They described ID's as "alterations in a person's information-processing capacities" that, unlike momentary, episodic and individualized snapping, results in a prolonged and "marked [change] of awareness, diminished conscious control [and] persisting impairments [of a person's] everyday powers of thinking, feeling, perception, memory, imagination and conscious choice.

Kennedy, after which he escaped the scene, via city bus, taxi and on foot, headed to a movie theatre, and shot and killed Dallas Police officer J.In Aberration in the Heartland, Painting explores Cold War popular culture, all-American apocalyptic fervor, organized racism, contentious politics, militarism, warfare, conspiracy theories, bioethical controversies, mind control, the media's construction of villains and demons, and institutional secrecy and cover-ups. Despite being a book that explores every inch of McVeigh's life that Painting could get her hands on, it does not absolve him for his crimes.
