June Skeptics

A week later than normal, we welcomed Anthony Green to Leeds Skeptics. Anthony is loosely affiliated to We Are Change, though with it being a group which doesn’t have strict hierarchy or leadership structure, it’s probably a misconception to say he was speaking on behalf of them.

Anthony presented a talk entitled “An Introduction To Psychological Operations and False Flag Attacks” discussing the armed forces use of propaganda. It was an interesting talk although as one member pointed out – none of us actually disagree that this kind of stuff goes on – we’re just not sure it’s that much of a problem.

There was some strong willed debate though it all kept very civil, both sides were quick to apologise when they thought they had offended the other, and ultimately we all agreed that the important thing was that we all worked for a better, more open society. A great meeting in my books.
