9780971394209: Everything You Know Is Wrong: The Disinformation Guide to Secrets and Lies

This book begins where You Are Being Lied To left off. Once again, an amazing group of investigative journalists, researchers, insiders, dissidents, and academics peels back consensus reality and shows us what's really happening. Hard, documented evidence on the most powerful institutions and controversial topics in the world. Among the revelations:

  • Antidepressants trash your brain.
  • China has repeatedly threatened to nuke the US.
  • Young people are less violent now than they have been in over 30 years.
  • Mad Cow disease is killing people in America.

Plus previously unpublished revelations about the International Monetary Fund, the Vatican Bank, the Olympic Games, Henry Lee Lucas, the drug war in South America, unpublicized accidents at nuclear power plants, and much more. Includes reproductions of rare documents and photos, including an unpublished eyewitness sketch of a mysterious third gunman at Columbine.

Among the 50+ contributors: Naomi Klein · Douglas Rushkoff · Arianna Huffington · Howard Zinn · Paul Krassner · Gary Webb · Howard Bloom · Noreena Hertz · Alexander Cockburn · Thomas Szasz · William Blum · James Ridgeway · Kalle Lasn · Wendy McElroy

From the Publisher:

In “Burn the Olive Tree, Sell the Lexus,” Greg Palast and Oliver Shykles show precisely what globalization hath wrought, using exclusive leaked documents from the World Bank and the World Trade Organization. Political commentator Arianna Huffington then offers stinging criticism of the pharmaceutical industry in “Drug Companies: Sell Hard, Sell Fast...and Count the Bodies Later.” We’re proud to present a groundbreaking article on the Vatican Bank’s seamy side by attorney Jonathan Levy. Dominick Armentano shows that antitrust law actually hurts consumers and is used almost exclusively by businesses to kneecap their competitors. Investigative journalist Lucy Komisar follows the worldwide trail of laundered money in “Dirty Money and Global Banking Secrecy.” Noreena Hertz shows us that globalization isn’t inherently a bad thing, but it must be modified drastically before it will benefit everyone.

Douglas Valentine examines former Senator Bob Kerrey’s active role in the CIA’s ultrasecret Phoenix program, which involved torturing and killing civilians in Vietnam. Sports professor Helen Lenskyj reveals the hidden costs, arrogance, and corruption of the Olympics. Lindsay Jenkins spills the beans on the plan to destroy the nations of Europe by turning them into one big (undemocratic) country ruled by a secretive, unaccountable bunch of bureaucrats. “Watchdog Nation” exposes the problems with the groups that earn their multi-millions by magnifying the threat of political extremists in America.

Investigator Brad Shellady presents a devastating look at the case of Henry Lee Lucas, alleged to be one of the worst serial killers of all time. British reporter Rory Carroll examines new developments in the case of “The Monster of Florence,” which inspired Thomas Harris to create his intellectual psychopath, Hannibal Lecter. In “Charlie Manson’s Image,” counterculture legend Paul Krassner adds new twists to the famous case. “Witnesses to a Massacre” by Russ Kick assembles ignored reports by numerous eyewitnesses who saw multiple gunmen perpetrating the massacre at Columbine. “Free Lauriane” reveals that, for the first time ever, the US has granted political asylum to a French citizen. Retired police chief Joseph McNamara reveals the existence of gangs of renegade cops in every major US city and confirms the existence of the “blue wall of silence” in “When Cops Become the Gangsters.”

Gabe Kirchheimer uses medical studies, expert opinions, and scientific facts to demonstrate that mad cow disease has indeed invaded the US. Then Mickey Z. widens the subject to look at further problems associated with meat and other animal-based food in “Fear of a Vegan Planet.” The legendary Thomas Szasz demonstrates that the concept of “mental illness” is a ruse, while prominent psychiatric-drug whistleblower Peter Breggin, M.D. explains what’s wrong with Ritalin.

Mike Males shows us in “Myths About Youth” that kids nowadays are less violent and use less drugs and alcohol than their parents’ generation. Phillip Cook reveals that men comprise a significant portion of domestic abuse victims (one third to one half). Lucy Gwin tells the shocking truth about disabled people in “Postcards From the Planet of the Freaks.” Adbusters founder Kalle Lasn presents the scientific evidence that our media-saturated consumer culture is extremely damaging to our psyches, and Preston Peet has harsh words for the current trend toward forced treatment for drug users. In a pair of essays, Wendy McElroy presents old-school, individualist-feminist takes on pornography and prostitution. Our own sexual adventurer, Tristan Taormino, looks at the full spectrum of relationship options in “Two’s Too Tough.” Turning to the big questions, Nick Mamatas examines the relatively recent origins of the supposedly universal good/evil dichotomy, and Annie Laurie Gaylor eyes! divine misogyny in “Why Women Need Freedom From Religion.”

There are a startling number of accidents, near-misses, and other problems in nuclear power plants, a subject near and dear to nuclear safety engineer David Lochbaum’s heart (his “Fission Stories” tells all). Attorney David Hardy has uncovered even more skullduggery surrounding the Waco incident, including a smoking-gun document. William Blum completely savages another Official Version of Events in “The Bombing of PanAm Flight 103: Case Not Closed.” Meanwhile, “Leaders Against the Drug War” shows that over 70 government officials in the US and around the world have called for the relaxation of drug laws. Jonathan Vankin reminds us that the ludicrous events of the 2000 presidential election were nothing new. Our man in India, Dr. K. Jamanadas, offers an unflinching look at the horrors being endured by Untouchables in his country. Robert Sterling gives an acid take on the demonization of the leaders of developing countries in “Viva Kadaffi!” Howard Bloom and Diane Starr Petryk! -Bloom reveal the frighteningly underrated military and economic power of China. Living in Peru, Peter Gorman has an ideal spot from which to report on the war the US is covertly waging in neighboring Colombia.

“The Accidental Operative,“ by two Village Voice reporters, is a groundbreaking look at the Taliban’s unofficial US ambassador, who happens to be the niece of a former CIA Director. Alex Burns deals with the complexity of the terrorist mindset in “A Canticle for Osama Bin Laden.” Naomi Klein (of No Logo fame) shows us why America was/is so woefully unprepared for a biowarfare attack. In “September 11, 2001: No Surprise,” Russ Kick offers a huge amount of evidence indicating that the upper levels of the US government knew what was coming.

Howard Zinn’s “The Ludlow Massacre” resurrects a mostly forgotten governmental slaughter of men, women, and children. In “Mushroom Clouds in Paradise,” Jack Niedenthal details the shameful treatment of the people of the Bikini Atoll. Former teacher John Taylor Gatto uses the writings of the men who created and implemented the US public school system to show that they purposefully designed the system to keep us dumb and docile.

Appendix A has short takes on 35 more secrets and lies, including the multimillionaire officials who run the US, corporate malfeasance, AIDS, Hollywood’s propaganda, exotic weapons, civilian deaths in Afghanistan, and income tax. Appendix B looks at 35 books dealing with Kissinger, innocent people in jail, antidepressants, guns, Islam, the swastika, and other juicy topics.
