David Icke & London Real: An Investigation

This is an audio version of David Icke & London Real, an Investigation which was published on the Rebel Wisdom YouTube site May 2nd 2020.

On 6th April, London Real broadcast an interview with 'conspiracy researcher' David Icke. In it he claimed that Covid-19 was "a hoax" and that 5G was designed for a "mass cull". YouTube took it down. In the wake of this the owner of London Real, Brian Rose launched a crowdfunding campaign for what he called the "Digital Freedom Platform". This has raced to nearly $1m in just over a week. However, lots of the claims about the platform don't appear to add up.

This is an investigation into the platform, the wider issue of free speech and the censorship of the big tech platforms. Documents and articles referenced in the film include:

Myth, Wisdom & Pandemic: Stephen Jenkinson, Zak Stein & Charlotte Du Cann

Over the last month, Rebel Wisdom has been interviewing some of the brightest minds in systems change and complexity to make sense of the crisis and possible responses to it. One thing that has emerged in these conversations is the importance of understanding myth and stories to contextualise what we're experiencing.

Rebel Wisdom's Alexander Beiner interviewed three people with an understanding of how myths, stories and wisdom traditions give us a new insight into the crisis: Zak Stein, Stephen Jenkinson and Charlotte du Cann. Here, we weave these conversations together with ideas we've explored on the channel in the past to look at the mythopoetic landscape of the pandemic.

This film is accompanied by an article on our Medium page that explores the ideas in the film in more detail:https://medium.com/rebel-wisdom/traversing-the-underworld-what-myth-can-teach-us-during-the-pandemic-802d07683d44
