To shine the best light, check your ego at the door

Divide and conquer. It's possibly the oldest trick in the book. And one's ego is like the handle the bad guys/shills use to peel us away from the folks we should be working with, not against.

Unfortunately, that's just what a couple of my favorite youtube guys, Peekay and Jeff C. (Free Radio Revolution) have allowed to happen over the past few days. They started some dispute over whether or not a certain plane crash was real or not and it escalated into some pointless war about something most people have long forgotten by now, anyway. This is far from the first time I've seen this kind of thing happen. It happened with Rense and Makow. It happened with David Icke and Jesse Ventura. I don't play the "team Jessie" or "team Rense" game. I acknowledge that there are honest truthseekers out there, and there are deliberate disinformation people, but occasionally everyone gets it wrong once in a while, and if on the whole you are opening more eyes and doing more good that bad, I'll read your stuff and let the facts speak for themselves.

I don't want to pontificate and play the hypocrite here. Sure, I have an ego. Everyone does. I don't think you can even exist on this plane of existence without one. It's like having a physical body -- it's a drag to carry around and a bother to keep up, but what are you goin' to do? Accept it, make peace with it, but don't let it boss you around.

The truth is, there are lots of people out there getting paid big money to destroy and discourage cooperation between truthseekers. Shills, provocateurs, false allies, you name it. These are our real enemies: the ones who are doing their damnedest to seperate us from potential friends and supporters. They do it on a large scale (pitting Shia against Sunni, or Repubicans against Democrats) but they do it on a small scale, too. Don't let them defeat you in this way. Stand up for what you believe in, but don't take any attacks (or criticism?) personally. That's a sucker's game.

Here's a video from Joy Camp that addresses this very issue:
