What THEY don't want

Sheeple wakers
Not to be confused with hippie philosopher Alan Watts.
In all ages, in all lands, there have been those who seek truth. This seeking is an individual's search for something more than self, and much more than the confines of this worldly system. It is the seeker, who understands there is more than what meets the eye, who is not afraid and makes the choice to go into the unknown. The process of awaking has begun, the discovery is underway.
— Alan Watt in A Course in Deprogramming

Alan Watt (1965–2021)[1] was a Scottish-Canadian conspiracy theorist and crank from Ontario Canada, who ran the online conspiratorial ministry, Cutting Through The Matrix, where he preached New World Order conspiracy theories while trying to make a few bucks selling books, CDs, and DVDs. In other words, a lesser known, but equally cranky version of Alex Jones.[2]

Consistent with a strange trend among conspiracy theorists, Watt ran a webshite that A: looks like it hasn't been updated since 1995 (sadly this is not the case). And B: has so many loud and obnoxiously bright colors of text that it makes a preschool daycare drawing look like modern chromed architecture. It will literally make your EYES BLEED.

Basic overview[edit]

We could go on and on, but to keep this article from being about as boring as Watt himself, we'll keep it brief.

According to his website, "Because Alan is perfectly genuine he has no agent or manager to arrange radio interviews. He belongs to no group, sect, or political party. If you would like to hear him more often, you will have to request the major talk show hosts to have him back. A mind with knowledge is a terrible thing to waste."

Starting in 2005, Watt ran a weekly radio show every Sunday, where he shat out all his conspiracy nonsense and took phone calls from listeners[3]. Given the show's subject matter, as well as Watt's incredibly passive, uninteresting voice where he talked AT you rather than TO you, Watt's radio show was about as interesting as a broken garden gnome. He barely even showed interest during a 2011 radio show when a caller phoned in, showing genuine concern about world domination and public ignorance[4]. It sounded as if Watt's counter-concern was the caller's credit card number.

Since 2006, his official logo has been a badly photo-shopped Alan Watt head in martial arts attire kicking over the tearing up pyramid eye.

So, what did he believe in?[edit]

Alan Watt professed belief in the following:

  • The world as we know it has been for decades is on the brink of collapse, and a New World Order is imminent.
  • Governments are using the conflict in the Middle East to distract us from the real problem... chemtrails![5]
  • Professional sports are being used to distract the populace from the elite's secret plans and to "take away your manhood".[6]
  • Anthropogenic climate change is a hoax and is being used as an "excuse to bring about some agenda" involving depopulation in accordance to the Club Of Rome and the United Nations.[7]
  • "Prison cities" akin to the FEMA concentration camps were to be established across the world in 2011.[8] to kill off the useless eaters. As of 2021 we're still waiting for them.
  • Microchips, Nanotechnology, and Implanted Biosensors are becoming the "new normal".
  • TV is evil and only exists to brainwash the masses[9]
  • Coronavirus has been a gold mine on Watt's website. Major plot twist, he believed it's a hoax to force mandated vaccines[10].

We could go one for days, but you get the idea by now.

Selling Sharing the truth[edit]

As if his weekly podcasts weren't enough, Alan Watt's website has a section named "Purchase" where he distributed his books, CDs and DVDs, which spread more conspiracy theories and denialist nonsense. His CDs are $40 (USD) EACH[11]. He also ran a Paypal donation button and (big surprise) gladly accepted donations.

Alan Watt in Show-Biz[edit]

Watt made his straight-to-the-bargain-rack-in-a-gas-station big screen debut in the low budget film, Order of Chaos, starring Watt as "the radio voice" alongside a cast of absolutely nobody recognizable. The film is advertised on Watt's website and is available on Amazon[12]. It actually doesn't come with a gun and ammo, despite what the front cover suggests.

Stopped clock[edit]

Despite his wacky beliefs, Watt was skeptical of religious fundamentalism. He also denounced the equally insane views of David Icke, although this could be seen both ways.
