But all Watt fans know, that Watt had a mysterious undercurrent to accompany his general theme. I would estimate that 90% of Watt's information was sourced/documented/quoted...but there was a 10% that was an unsourced and mysterious substructure to his thought that formed the foundation to the rest of the other 90%. And that mysterious foundation obscurely mention themes such as:
- the system going back far into pre-history
- he talked about androgynous agendas
- a super secret core of troglodyte elites
- a supernatural quality to Freemasonry
- a strange etymological word code
- and the future phasing out of humanity through orchestrated disasters
etc...Watt always acted as if he was "saying too much" and would not talk about these foundational subjects in further detail
And I think a lot of us trusted his judgment on the 90% and assumed that the other 10% was also well sourced like the majority of his work. But the problem was that he wasn't being open about it! He was vague as hell when it came to his foundations. I remember multiple times that I would email Watt, asking him for sources of his vague musings...but he never responded. He'd just continue on with his radio show, fear mongering his audience into buy his books and to listen to his show to find the answers to his mysteries (of which he was never going to reveal)...at least not willingly.
I stopped listening to Watt's show for a few months after I realized it wasn't going anywhere. Then Nodoz came to me with information that Watt had actually plagiarized his books from some other Canadian author named Glen Kealey...and that Kealey was Watt's main (but hidden) inspiration. And it was quite a bombshell...because that mysterious 10% of Watt's vagueness was what Kealey talked about 100% of the time! So now we were finally revealed to the full story...and what an incredibly ludicrous story it turned out to be, lol ...you know, if Watt hadn't been so vague about it from the start, I probably would've never have given him any consideration. Watt was a guy who was so rational, that he'd continuously debunked outlandish conspiracy hosts, new age believers, and people who spouted alien theories...yet, the whole time he took seriously the thoughts of a person who believed in even more ridiculous claims than them! Yes, Kealey is worse than probably all the people that Watt debunked!
Now, the reaction of Alan Watt fans is what I'm trying to get at. The fans were divided...most people dismissed Kealey and continued focusing on Watt's rational 90%...but there was a small few who decided to look into Kealey ideas more. And even most of this small few have come to the realization of how asinine and illogical Kealey is and have reverted back to Watt's rational 90% ...but my arguement is that there's really not much about Alan Watt's work to go back to.
If Kealey's pre-history theories, and language scramble codes, and ancient genetic engineering theories, and androgynous agendas, and neanderthal elites, and 2012 doomsday scenarios are crazy...then why is it not crazy when Alan Watt talks about it, knowing that he stole those ideas from Kealey? It's almost as if Watt fans have turned a blind eye to the Kealey revelation. Even when you look at Watt's seemingly rational 90%, it's still irrationally based in Kealey's craziness. For example, the omnipotent power that Watt attributes to the elite are based in large by Kealey's theories of super Neanderthals with GE technology. There's also a religious Sufi element that Kealey reveled too.
And forget about Kealey for a moment...Watt's rational 90% is largely in question regardless. I'd even argue a lot of the books that Watt quoted are no longer the even put to use by the elite. And even upon further investigation, the books he quotes are outdated, often contradictory to each other, often misquoted and taken out of context...yet he still quotes them as if they have relevance and so do his followers. Independent research has also led me to conclude that his historical analysis is grossly inaccurate...so all this, plus Kealey, plus the crypto-sufi beliefs...why does Alan Watt still have such a dedicated fan base?
