On May 7, 2020 Scott Adams sent out a tweet about the Plandemic video.
“I finally watched the Plandemic video people keep sending me. Looks to me like a combination of ridiculous bullshit conspiracy nuttery mixed with some true stuff. Reminds me of the absurd idea that the FBI recently attempted a coup in the United States. Wait. Oh, fuck.”
I was surprised that when Scott Adams watched the video he didn’t recognize his own handiwork. I consider Scott Adams to be the Sith Lord of Persuasion, which is why I’ve been watching his morning Periscopes for the last two years.
I encourage anybody who wants to change the world as a “reality technician” to watch his morning broadcasts. If you are any kind of activist, be it QANON, reasonable immigration laws, Second Amendment, anti-voter fraud, you owe it to yourself to listen to Scott Adams.
It’s not so much that Adams believes in any of these things, but he’ll teach you how to frame your argument in a persuasive manner. He has taught me how to use “action” words and to create a sense of anticipation in the listener. With conservative estimates of eight million views, up to claims of more than fifty million views, something special has been created by Plandemic. (Appreciation must also be given to Mikki Willis, the director, who used to be the video-grapher for Senator Bernie Sanders in 2016.)
With all due honor to Scott Adams…
…I give you the opening narrative of Plandemic, which I would have been unable to write without his wisdom and guidance.
“Dr. Judy Mikovits has been called one of the most accomplished scientists of her generation. Her 1991 doctoral thesis revolutionized the treatment of HIV-AIDS. At the height of her career, Dr. Mikovits published a blockbuster article in the journal, Science. The controversial article sent shock-waves through the scientific community as it revealed the common use of animal and human fetal tissue were unleashing devastating plagues of chronic diseases. For exposing their deadly secrets the minions of Big Pharma waged war on Dr. Mikovits, destroying her good name, career, and personal life.
Now, as the fate of nations hang in the balance, Dr. Mikovits is naming names of those behind the PLAGUE OF CORRUPTION that places all human life in danger.”
And I don’t want you to think I just take from Scott Adams. I give back. My review of his book, Loser-Think” was for a long time the #1 customer review on Amazon. Here is what I wrote about Scott’s book in November.

While Adams has been criticized for being in Trump’s corner, that’s really an unfair charge. Adams is interested in the skills of persuasion, and he’s just as likely to praise the skills of Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez as he is Congressman Matt Gaetz, or President Trump.
My book arrived a day early, so I’ve been diving into the Adams buffet with glee. You should think of Adams as a reality technician, as he shows you which messages resonate with people and which don’t. If you’re familiar with his work you’ll recognize some of his themes, such as “Don’t Stay in Your Own Lane,” which if that advice had been taken by the Wright Brothers, they’d never have taken to the skies.
Adams also has a preference for “systems over goals,” which means you should have a clear strategy for anything you wish to accomplish. In other words, don’t tell me what you want to accomplish, tell me “how” you’re going to do it.
In addition, Adams is also a world-class problem solver. Take his arguments about climate change. Some believe our carbon dioxide emissions are warming the planet and some do not. That’s an impasse, right? Not necessarily. How about Generation IV nuclear energy, which has zero risk of meltdown and actually “eats” used nuclear waste? Could the U.S. become the leader in this technology, which is likely to be cheaper than fossil fuel? And even if you don’t agree with the risk of climate change, everybody agrees that the extraction of oil poses significant environmental problems.
If you want a great book which will make you think, and maybe believe that our problems are solvable, this is the book for you. I definitely don’t want the news media to in any way believe Scott Adams and I are close friends, or that we regularly get together for coffee or anything. The simple fact that we live just a few miles apart and have published some of the most consequential books of our time, does not mean we are good friends, or that we have even spoken with each other.
