After Greta Thunberg’s global climate march displayed quite a few obvious totalitarian elements I tried to find out what the famous class room experiment “The (Third) Wave” could tell us about it. Most people have come across the tale because the story of teacher Ron Jones who started a mock fascist movement that went a tad out of hand spawned a large variety of art products such as a novel, a cartoon, a musical, countless theater plays, and probably a lot more. But I did not want to compare the climate freak out with fiction and so I dug into the history of the real experiment and stumbled across a huge fraud. Not only was the project stopped with massive opposition from students and parents, it was also rather an anti-Vietnam war protest attempt of Mr Jones masquerading as an experiment after the fact. He made a second similar attempt a few months later and was ultimately dismissed (because of it – what he denies although it’s obvious). Like many anti-war leftists, Mr Jones is also far from a pacifist, very, very far from it, indeed. My video documents the inner contradictions in detail. The fraud may not tell us much about authoritarianism, but it tells us a good deal about successful leftist propaganda and dishonesty.
