APPEARANCES


UPCOMING TALKS BY STEAMSHOVEL'S KENN THOMAS

Kenn Thomas makes the following appearances in the coming weeks:





Kenn Thomas to appear at Second Annual Alternative Research Community conference

Bath, England
August 28-29, 2010

Held at the Chapel Arts Centre, the event takes place in the very heart of the city of Bath, UK on a bank holiday weekend - the 28th and 29th August.

Kenn Thomas will speak on WILHELM REICH, JFK, MAURY ISLAND and the PARAPOLITICS of UFOLOGY

*** Kenn Thomas has promoted alternative points of view since the founding of his conspiracy magazine, Steamshovel Press, in the late 1980s.

His mentors and teachers have included such alternative thinkers as the psychedelic psychologist Tim Leary and the Beat literary figures William S. Burroughs and Allen Ginsberg.

Kenn has concentrated on the study and promotion of 'parapolitics' - those hidden and covered up activities that exert enormous sway over public life but have little or no public accountability.

"JFK's 1960 election is an example of a public political event," says Kenn, "The conspiracy that ended in his assassination in 1963 is a parapolitical event - and we've had half a century trying to integrate just that one into the kind of open, democratic culture to which most aspire."

He will demonstrate that it's less 'conspiracy theory' and more the kind of authentic public discourse the media fails daily to provide; reviewing the history of important dissenting personalities such as Wilhelm Reich, and showing how the UFO subculture remains a vital voice of dissent despite fifty years of ridicule.

After Reich, Kenn traces the links between the intelligence world and the ufological subculture via the Maury Island incident, a 1947 UFO event that involved people later subpoenaed as part of Jim Garrison's JFK investigations.

At the root of this is an alternative point of view, 'alternative' to the media fantasy and denial narrative of the common consensus. Discover the shocking, awful truth about the past half century of conspiratorial skull-duggery!
