Hi Nick, I recommend Web of Hate, Warren Kinsella's excellent study about the far right in Canada, and how it worms itself into all areas of society, often without people even realizing it. http://warrenkinsella.com/books/web-of-hate/ It's not just anti-Semitism, of course, although that seems to be the virus that most often permeates the conspiracist subculture, which is linked - like it or not - with the UFO subculture. Anyway, my original point was simply to observe that there are far more odious things that undermine "serious ufology" than someone making a few quid by lending their name to commercial advertisements and marketing campaigns.
