Op-Ed: David Icke's own mini-world conspiracy

By Alexander Baron     Mar 14, 2012 in Entertainment
Ryde - David Icke is one of the foremost prophets of our time, in his own mind at least; he sees conspiracies everywhere. But not, apparently, in his own back yard.
As well as being a conspiracy theorist, an author, a one time sports commentator and aspiring politician, David Icke is also a father, and like any concerned father, he wants the best for his offspring. His eldest son Gareth is a songwriter, and his most recent offering to the world is Remember Who You Are. Icke Senior calls this an anthem for our time, probably because the title is one of his own slogans. The song is now available with a video on Daddy's own website. Some would call this nepotism; polite people would call it networking. Those who see plots everywhere would call it a conspiracy.
In his 1776 book The Wealth Of Nations, Adam Smith put it succinctly: “People of the same trade seldom meet together, even for merriment and diversion, but the conversation ends in a conspiracy against the public, or in some contrivance to raise prices.”
In other words, where business people they have a common interest, they promote it. There is nothing sinister about a proud father promoting his son's work, especially when the work concerned is inspired by his own, and in this case when the song ain't half bad. When though, people sit down behind closed doors and promote their mutual interests by bribing or otherwise influencing politicians, that is a real conspiracy, and something of which we should all be wary. It remains to be seen if these people are really plotting wars, to enslave the planet, or something even more sinister. What does not remain to be seen is that Icke, one of their most vocal critics, is taking a leaf out of their book.
