Sometimes we are sheep watching wars and intrigue far above us.
1 August 2005 | by (East Kilbride, Scotland) – See all my reviews

This was an excellent documentary programme where faux naif investigative journalist Jon Ronson hung out with various extremists and would-be political activists in an attempt to gain understanding of the world of conspiracy theorists. Everyone from Islamic fundamentalists to Racist American survivalists were covered, with some unique personalities uncovered in between. Alex Jones and David Icke were given a fairly objective treatment, if slightly mocking - Jon Ronson gave Jones the opportunity to film his now infamous Bohemian Grove video and proved he had aspirations to be like his namesake, Indiana. Icke is depicted as a world-weary family man who may or may not have ended up with his highly successful new-age/conspiracy theory writing career and coterie of varying extremists through the simple need to earn a living, his sporting journalism career having crashed so spectacularly when he had a very public, possibly psychotic, breakdown in the early nineties. Ronson uncovers some truths that have been dismissed as conspiracy theorist fodder. He seems to have established beyond doubt that the Bilderberger group is a real one and empowers its members - anyone following the career of Bilderberger Peter Mandelson must wonder at how such a man remained in British politics. Ronson also establishes that America's survivalist lobby have been moved to their dogma by very real, very tragic and unforgivable intrusions of America's police force into their lives. The series is due a DVD release, not least in order to counter the belief that conspiracy theorist polemicists are infallible and beyond criticism. As long as Icke has his lizards and Alex Jones and Omar Bakri their fundamentalist religious views, we need a Ronson to provide us with pinches of salt.
