This appears to be the only board on which we are allowed to note that the use of the word "conspiracy" as a namecaller, a put down, a demeaning prejudicial term is one of the predominant forms of brainwash in the USA.  Any questioning of authority is shuttled into the "conspiracy theory" category so that normal minds do not have to bother themselves with those pesky questions which upset the status quo.


It reminds me of the '50s when anything "unAmerican" (ie., not the official line) was labeled as "communist" or at least "pink".  Any questioning of the course of capitalism, of the power of the wealthy to control our lives, could ruin one's career and subject one to intense FBI scrutiny.  The nation seems to be drifting back into this mindless mentality, as the recent 10 year 9/11 celebration of "Fascist Christmas" revealed.

Other prominent people who are "conspiracy theorists", who question authority:

In addition,many high-level military and intelligence officials have called for a new investigation, including:

  • Former   Deputy Secretary for Intelligence and Warning under Nixon,   Ford, and   Carter (Morton Goulder), former Deputy Director to the  White  House Task   Force on Terrorism (Edward L. Peck), and former US   Department of State   Foreign Service Officer (J. Michael Springmann),   as well as a who’s who   of liberals and independents) jointly call                  for a new investigation into 9/11"
  • (This is a list, not paragraphs.)
  • How many will it take to break the censorship and silence?

"

If this silence were broken and the facts opposite to what we've been hearing from Governments were proven beyond a doubt, which Government would dare come out and acknowledge it?


I think people would riot.

Proofs of a Conspiracy


by John Robison:  www.sacred-texts.com/sro/pc/index.htm


This book is the grand daddy of them all.  For those wishing to study conspiracy theory (or fact), this is where you begin.

I thought this was amusing..


Al Qaeda slams Iran for peddling 9/11 conspiracy theories

It's not often foreign leaders are chastised by al Qaeda for going too far in their critique of the United States--but Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has somehow managed the trick. Ahmadinejad is already facing bruising attacks at home from conservative Iranian clerics and politicians on several fronts--and now al Qaeda representatives are assailing him for peddling conspiracy theories that deny the terrorist group's culpability for the Sept. 11 attacks

snicker. Nothing liek having someone else get credit for all your hard work. It just doesnt pay to be a arch villian anymore.

You're right, it is amusing.

For those who have faith, no explanation is neccessary.
For those who have no faith, no explanation is possible.

If one turns his ear from hearing the Law, even his prayer is an abomination. Proverbs 28:9

Personally, i don't think it so much "amusing" as "telling," e.g. that "Al Quaida" was then and is now a tool of the CIA, a tail with which to wag the dog, a carefully-constructed "enemy-du-jour" boogeyman, even armed and supplied by intelligence services to this day(e.g. ISI of Pakistan, with full knowledge of this fact by Pakistani-stationed US diplomats, according to the Wikileaks).


How perfect for the "intelligence" service, eh?  i mean, if you can have the supposed "enemy" of the US ALSO deriding "conspiracy theories," then anyone believing anything OTHER than the "official government story" could be potentially construed as "siding with the terrorists," which is mighty convenient for the Guantanamo-style prison proponents.


With goodwill to all the People-
