Silent Weapons: Myths VS. Reality
As always, this article will be walking a middle path. Snarky debunking is boring and offensive, and uncritical parroting is even worse. In the past decade, a lot has been uncovered about the origins of the truly remarkable document Silent Weapons for Quiet Wars. PARANOIA Magazine editor Joan D'Arc (possibly a pseudonym) was solely responsible for most of this research, so I will turn the floor over to him/her/it:
With its bizarre claim to have been found in a surplus IBM copy machine in 1986 by a Boeing Aircraft employee, Silent Weapons for Quiet Wars takes its place among those dubious 'elite blueprints' for control of the planet, second only to the well known treatise The Protocols of Zion. Dated May 1979, Silent Weapons called for a "quiet revolution" through economic engineering, using such methods as economic shock testing and paper inductance/inflation (exchanging true value for inflated currency), and balancing the system by killing off the true creditors of this exchange (the public) in constant wars.
Silent Weapons was first published for mass consumption by the late William Cooper in his 1991 underground sensation, Behold a Pale Horse. A few versions of this document also appeared later on the internet along with remarks to the effect that the paranoid manifesto was probably penned by Cooper himself. Cooper, a former Naval Intelligence Officer with a purported 38-level above-top secret clearance, claimed to have read this report in a "Naval Intelligence Majority Twelve file," and that it was authored by the Bilderberg Group. Cooper states in his book that it was given to him by someone named Tom Young.
It turns out there is an actual author behind the document, not only that -- he's in Federal Prison. His name is Hartford Van Dyke, and he's a remarkable character.

Joan D'Arc has had a further correspondence with Van Dyke, and you can observe for yourself how Van Dyke validated his claim of authorship.
The Van Dyke Letters
SWFQWis not a "paranoid manifesto;" it is a politically biased technical instruction manual on how to justify, and how to selectively survive, human animal husbandry before the need for animal husbandry becomes unstably critical.

Sadly, all of this provides further evidence of how even a well-intentioned and dedicated researcher, specifically William Cooper, can easily be tricked into repeating rumors and providing bogus information. This is a fairly serious problem, especially with independent internet research where there is no opportunity or impetus to learn about the cognitive biases that distort thinking and mislead researchers.
Skilluminati Research is of the opinion that Behold a Pale Horse is so riddled with false information, not to mention increasingly outdated, that it should be removed from the unofficial "curriculum" of conspiracy theory studies. Just a personal opinion based on nearly a decade of research and reflection. Consider Cooper's claims about the authorship of the document -- was he honestly wrong, or did he make that shit up? And isn't there a huge spectrum of possibilities in between those two extremes?
Please, at least take the time today to read and learn about the Confirmation Bias.
Energy is recognized as the key to all activity on earth. Natural science is the study of the sources and control of natural energy, and social science, theoretically expressed as economics, is the study of the sources and control of social energy. Both are bookkeeping systems: mathematics. Therefore, mathematics is the primary energy science. And the book-keeper can be king if the public can be kept ignorant of the methodology of the bookkeeping. All science is merely a means to an end. The means is knowledge. The end is control. Beyond this remains only one issue: Who will be the beneficiary?
