Is Michael Jackson Dead Controversy

Can Michael Jackson’s death be a hoax?

In the documentary film by Pearl Jr. “Alive, Is Michael Jackson Really Dead“, one can become easily fascinated with the various presentations which not only led up to his supposed death but what followed thereafter.

The research in my book after his death, “The Psychoanalysis of Michael Jackson” is presently causing me to weigh in on the subject as it would be seen through the eyes of a psychologist and focus attention on one word, “logic”.

Human behavior is often predictable in the extreme. Behavioral Scientists tell us that we humans spend all of our time attempting to satisfy needs. We have been able to reduce these needs down to four – the need for love, the need for security, the need for recognition and the need for adventure. It is believed that everything we do from the time we get up in the morning until we go to bed at night is designed to satisfy these needs.]

As we direct our attention to the matter of Michael Jackson’s death, we will focus on the need for recognition. We need to be accepted by others, thought well of and hope that others will be impressed with what we do. In other words, we want people to see us as an important person. In order to gain recognition, we often do things that are not logical or even in our best interest.

You are walking along the beach in Florida and find an ancient Spanish coin. Perhaps you are scuba diving and find a hundred silver coins on the ocean floor. There are three things that you can do. You can take them home, tell no one and take them out from time to time and enjoy them, you can search the internet for coin dealers with the hope of selling them,  saying that they came from a private collection, or like the vast number of people with a strong need for recognition,  tell a friend admonishing them to tell no one.

It won’t be long before there is a knock at your door by someone who says the coins really belong to them and they want them. This might be an insurance company, a governmental agency or anyone who became privy to your need for recognition after what you told a friend in the strictest of confidence.

If Michael Jackson’s death was a hoax, think about the complications involved. Think about an army of people necessary to carry it off. Think about the aspect of secrecy, the highly clandestine activity of people who could or perhaps could not be fully trustworthy.

Having money for the future may not have been a problem. It would have been easy to put cash in a duffle bag and hide it somewhere. It would have been extremely dangerous to use any banking facilities anywhere in the world.

You are still alive. Where would you go and where would you live? You can find a cave and become a hermit or you can make every attempt to continue with your present creature comforts. Would you want to live in America or in some other part of the world?

Let’s look at the Marlon Brando Island in the South Pacific which has been suggested as a future residence. Just getting there would represent many problems. You can’t fly commercially so you use a private jet. If you fly from LAX to Burbank, you have of file a flight plan. Flying from LAX to the South Pacific would be even more complicated.

Get a copy of “SAIL” magazine or “YACHTING WORLD” and buy a 100’ yacht. This is easy because the hundreds of comings and goings of yachts from any west coast marina or yacht harbor, or for that matter, a private residence is easy with no paper trail.
