Alternative 3 by Leslie Watkins

Although i began this website in February of 2011, its origins go back much further. It's difficult to say exactly when i began to see the world in a different light than that cast by our mainstream institutions, but one memory that surfaces dates back more than four decades to a moment when i read a fascinating book titled Alternative 3 by Leslie Watkins.

Alternative 3 was written as science fiction but it read more like a script for a documentary. I remember checking the first pages of the book several times to verify whether it was actually a work of fiction and although it was, i have to wonder whether it was published as fiction in order to circumvent the censoring that may have taken place had it been published as factual, which many authors have been forced to do in order to get their story out. I have to credit the book for instilling in me a sense that secretive people in very high places just might be doing extremely nefarious things behind our backs that are altering the course of the human adventure.

This website is largely a product of my curiosity about such things, the intention being to share what i have learned since reading Alternative 3 so many years ago. I think that exposing people and organizations engaged in criminal or unethical activity is an honorable task, but i also like to write about technical subjects, to the extent that i'm capable. More than anything, i think my goal is to challenge the mainstream beliefs and narratives in many regards, be it political, technical, historical or otherwise.

My father told me several times throughout my childhood to never believe anything i read or hear and only half of what i see. Maybe that's the best description of what this website is about.
