There are a couple of essays recently posted that I would like to point to... as they are both worth reading, for their own different reasons.
First is called 'The Occult Technology of Power' - and which discusses some of the economic flows within particular power structures.
Second is 'Advice for Newbies' from Tom Montalk where he talks about where to start when entering the fray.
Finally, I would like to send out a recommended read - 'Hidden Truth: Forbidden Knowledge' by Steven Greer. Controversial - yet important things are said.
