”Please believe in THE POWER OF ONE.” — Iris Chang
History tells us that the majority of people are dumb brutes who can easily be deceived and exploited. As the Genevan philosopher Jean Jacques Rousseau opined, “Man is born free, but he is everywhere in chains.”
Against this backdrop of oppression and misery, where would we be without fearless thinkers to light the way? Revolutionaries like Jesus, Socrates, Giordano Bruno, Che Guevara and Malcolm X—all of whom were effectively murdered—are typically ridiculed by the clueless masses, yet their ideas are an eternal beacon of hope for those who dare to think free.
Fortunately, people suspected of being witches are no longer lynched or burned alive. Yet how many Muslims have perished in a our phony war on terror? How many people have been brainwashed into believing conspiracy theory is some kind of mental malady? How many Americans continue voting for the lesser of evils, even as they become more evil? How many people have been conned into believing that Jews are history’s most powerless and oppressed people?
Geobop is an educational project with a special interest in what might be called the radical truth. Everyone is welcome here, but you probably won’t get much out of this series of websites and books if you aren’t a little more intelligent than the average plodding thinker. You don’t need a PhD or a genius IQ; you simply have to be able to think rationally and consider new and often strange ideas.

The old GeoSymbols site—long the most popular state symbols site on the Internet—has been moved to symbols.geobop.com, where it will slowy be recreated and improved. Though I explore some provocative and sometimes unpleasant avenues in my explorations of symbology, these materials can generally be classified “general audience.”
