The Corey lovers point to all the love and lighty good stuff he brings with the his "intel" that must be considered if you can ignore his ego, it is the EXACT argument they use to urge detractors to consider his narrative
And the bigger example is now all the big researchers, the respected "authority" in the field, are blind to the responsibility Bill has for CREATING the problem...while praising him for offering the SOLUTION. So forgive my REACTION for being so tactless but his approach seems to me to be another of these loops, which is the REAL problem
One point that is being is missed in it, is (in past videos) he praises Avalon as a "Library of Alexandria", which in itself is a metaphor I have an issue with wanting...who got to go in there? Did everyone have equal access? Could the plebes even READ back then?
The internet itself is a sort of "Libraby of Alexandria", and that's great. And deposits of information in a comprehesive organized approachable site is an admirable goal to have. But that is NOT what PA is or ever was. The thing that distinguished that place is not the deposits of raw data, the great thing that Bill brought to it was discussion of (and ideally, direct access to) the characters from he and Kerri's "important work", the Camelot videos.
It created a community where people from all over, having anamolous experiences or having hidden knowledge could interact, and again "ideally" with the people that they couldn't normally have access, including the peeps who achieved "celebrity" status within the community.
PA is it what it is, most notably the largest community for "high quality" discourse that any of us have really found. What Bill's doing now doesn't change that, and it can be argued that he is using his current production more to boost the size of it than he is to creating any solution...I mean cmon, who needs him (or anybody) to debunk CG and DW? Especially considering CG came from PA and DW was at the table with Bill in the Camelot days. Those are things that I want to hear about from Bill, not the blame Corey gets for abusing all the attention he has garnered that started with the "Bill wanting attention" cycle that was the "SOOPER SECRET WHISTELBLOWER INTERVIEW"
Anyway, what I found through my journey through that environment is that transparency is crucial to the integrity of the community, after all....getting the knowledge out that is hidden from us is one of the stated intents. This requires honest self awareness, which somehow demanding that of the "authority" is being dismissed as "annoyance with ego"
Until Bill takes responsibility for his hand in repeatedly creating the cycles that have proven to be the problem with the community, any praise for his contributing to "fixing it" is hypocracy.
