"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

"Few who were alive in 1963 would argue the fact that the country we live in today does not resemble what we had then. Hartwell's effort is that of a true patriot offering an attempt to bridge that gap and explain how it all happened. For the benefit of us all."
-- James DiEugenio of Citizens for Truth about the Kennedy Assassination (CTKA)
"Dean Hartwell, DEAD MEN TALKING (2009), discusses the assassinations of JFK and of RFK, explaining some of the reasons we know that the 'official accounts' of their assassinations are false and that the evidence establishes that they were both taken out by conspiracies, where Sirhan Sirhan, like Lee Harvey Oswald, both appear to have been 'patsies', designated fall-guys being use to take the fall for crimes that were committed by others. Dean has published a very clear introduction to these assassinations and to other atrocities, most significantly the events of 9/11."
-- Jim Fetzer, Scholars for 9/11 Truth, March 9, 2010
From the Publisher
In the days of old, the king would kill someone who told him something he did not want to hear. But few people today would even contemplate that. And bad news is all around us. We have wars that have dragged on for years, we have an economy that is sputtering at best and we are constantly reminded that many of our leaders have moral shortcomings.
No one shoots the messenger over anything like this.
But when the subject concerns facts about government involvement in criminal activities, the reaction of much of the public and the media is perhaps even worse: the messenger gets ridiculed.
Recently, Stephen Colbert of the Colbert Nation brought 9/11 Commission member John Farmer on his show to discuss his new book. Right away, Colbert asked in a facetious tone whether there are any conspiracy theories in the book, like "Dick Cheney as a flight attendant." Predictably, Farmer assured Colbert that there were no such theories.
Oliver Stone's 1991 movie JFK, which supports conspiracy theory in the John Kennedy assassination, was attacked by media critics before it even came out. This response contrasts sharply with the admiration the media gave the Warren Report and its support of the official lone gunman theory. Many of the critics did not actually read the report.
When I discuss the assassination of Robert Kennedy, I frequently mention facts such as an audiotape of the event that indicates that thirteen shots were fired, five more than the number of bullets in convicted assassin Sirhan Sirhan's gun. I also point out that Sirhan was never seen within two feet of Kennedy, whereas the coroner said the fatal shot was fired at point-blank range. Eyes start to roll and I am called a "conspiracy nut."
The typical response I get in giving factual support for conspiracy theory is for people to give the benefit of every possible doubt to the official (non-conspiracy) theory. "Sure, I hear what you say, but the audiotape and eyewitnesses could have been wrong."
There is nothing wrong with speculation and exploring alternate hypothesis. This is frequently how theories get started. But those who use speculation (such as thirteen mistaken eyewitnesses) to prove a theory only succeed in keeping their view viable in their own minds. If people could be convicted of crimes based on this way of thinking, we'd all be in jail!
Does anyone believe our government never does anything wrong? I doubt it. The blind eye that many turn as to the facts of events like 9/11 likely stems from the refusal to confront the horror of something that has power over us.
As one who supports certain conspiracy theories, I never recommend forming any conclusion until one has accounted for all relevant facts. And therein lies the problem: critics of anything that smacks of conspiracy decline to consider or counter the message. They shoot the messenger (and any chance of a reasonable discussion) instead.
Read Dead Men Talking to get the relevant facts and to have the kinds of discussions our society needs!

the controversial events and subjects of this book, the JFK, RFK assasinations
The information presented here is so logical and convincing that I think it
could actually change a cynical skeptic into a true believer. Always confused
regarding Oswald's role besides that of "Patsy", I found that Dead Men Talking
not only proves conspiracy, in the JFK segment, but also describes the detailed
and exact measures that were likely taken to frame Lee Harvey Oswald. After
very compelling reading, I've found that it wouldn't be too much of a stretch
to consider that Oswald was completely innocent.
for Details in his book Dead Men Talking: Consequences
of Government Lies,.. even when those details take
him down some hideous paths. His courage in
confronting these awful truths is outstanding,
and his writing is clear and easy to understand.
He notices many inconsistencies about the
supposed planes and hijackers on 9/11, (which later
come out further in his great articles about planes
and passengers), and puts the blame right where it should be.
is one level headed, serious thinker and researcher,
has the will and the means to share his work with us,
and he has become quite an asset to the 9/11 truth
community, as well as those who know or suspect that the
Kennedy murders were other than what they seemed.
Good work, Dean Hartwell, great contributions!!
