    Finished reading this over Christmas.

    Disturbing read.

    Didn't want to comment when you posted this back in October because I hadn't read it yet.

    I rely on nothing I can't know of my own knowledge. There are things I have to accept a media-based report of because I have no direct experience, but faked videos, recordings, reports, pics are now so convincing and widespread it would be ridiculous to treat them with any more credulity that you would a picture postcard or something you heard at the hairdresser's.

    Great conspiracy theory. You might want to stockpile enough food for the rest of your life and disappear down your nuclear bunker sealing up the entrance behind you if you feel like that.

    So you think everything in the media is true?

    Fascinating...

    Where do you get your news from?

    I'm forced to accept it as a version, Ivar.
    Doesn't mean I accept its accuracy. It can be wrong without deliberate manipulation or conspiracy.

    Does the fact that you found it disturbing tell us anything about the credibility of the book?

    Should it? You might find it boring or turgid or hilarious. Not for me to say.

    Though i did lend it to my father so if you really want to know I can give you an update in a month or so.. .

    Utter rubbish. Not even thought provoking or worth responding to. (Oops I did) Where do you make that link? From me saying you are conspiracy theorist (obvious) to you saying, and how would you know, of course you do not, to you saying I must belive everything in the media? Are you the Donald? If so, go fill up the bunker ...
