Agreed! I haven't read the other book, but I read The Men Who Stare At Goats.

That was one of the most horrifying books I've ever read. It did more to make me mistrust the U.S. government than anything Noam Chomsky ever wrote.

(Edit to Add: For those who haven't read it, the "stare at goats" part, about attempts to use ESP as a military weapon, is only a minor part of the book. The main part deals with how the discredited psychologists who designed the USAFA Survival, Evasion, Resistance, and Escape program I went through in Colorado Springs were hired by the CIA to develop their torture methodology to use on captured terrorists, and his journalistic investigation of those programs. It will make your skin crawl!)

Admitting it....that's another kettle of fish.

You are aware of nothing but your own selfish intent and whatever revolves your selfish little world.

What a very odd thing to say. Consider

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.

Your intense confidence in these abstract regards screams absolute selfishness. When you proclaim to have a special knowledge, it's nothing but selfishness.

That is what it seems on the outside looking in. Know that this is the nature of the subject matter. Nothing more.
