On Monday evening, I am holding a free public conversation with director, actor and talk show host Sean Stone (son of the well-known director Oliver Stone). I am friends with Sean. We have had some pleasant hangouts. But I struggle to understand the perspective he puts out in his books, films, podcasts, and Instagram videos. I think he falls somewhere on the Qanon spectrum and he seems to have pronounced “conspiritualism” tendencies. This includes a belief in the Deep State conspiracy narrative and a fondness for Putin’s Russia. As I explored in my recent short book Conspiranoia (now out in Germany), I am interested in finding the links between various conspiratorial ideas, in an effort to envision a unifying narrative and movement. I am hoping this dialogue with Sean can establish some clarity.
ROBERT STEELE: Daniel Pinchbeck changed my life. He reached out to me and suggested I write a book and he devised the title The Open Source Everything Manifesto. I identified 64 opens and subsequently created the below concept with help from Michel Bauwens particularly (Peer to Peer).
In as much as Sean Stone narrated the movie that I star in with Joe Flynn (as a surrogate for Mike Flynn), Cathy O’Brien, John DeSouza, and Robin Gritz, and we share many views, I want to articulate my deep admiration for Daniel and my faith that his depth and breadth of knowledge will one day integrate seamlessly with our own.
