Disinformation With Intent To Discourage

If you are reading this blog you are interested or at least curious about the mystery surrounding Paul McCartney and his disappearance around September/October, 1966.  Theories abound and I'll be adding more information to them tomorrow or Sunday.

Let's take a look back, though, at The Beatles.  They were 4 (or possibly 5 or 6) young working class men who were musically talented and wanting to make a name for themselves in England in the early-and-mid 1960's.  They had working class parents who had limited educations.  They had what amounted to high-school educations (and Ringo had less.)  They were intelligent but because of the intensely hard work it took for them to establish themselves they had practically no time to add to their intellectual knowledge.  They had working class sensibilities which means they were extremely down to earth, practical and literal.  Because of the rough and tumble atmosphere they found themselves in at the beginning of their collective career they also were street-wise.  They were very close knit and surrounded themselves with a very few men who had sensibilities like them (except in some senses, of course, for Brian Epstein.)  They grew up in a country with an entrenched class system that was all about limiting or denying opportunities to anyone who did not have wealth in his or her background or some tie to a royal title.

They were interested in making music and making money.

So when you, dear readers, read about The Beatles' involvement in the occult, the illuminati, some cosmic conspiracy, reincarnation or a dozen other far-out ideas, I wouldn't believe a word of it.  It's the kind of disinformation that is used to disgust people and get them to not look at what REALLY happened to The Beatles.

Agreed. It's a way to distract from the facts.
