Re: CBS This Morning Training People How to Handle Crazy Loved Ones with Conspiracy Theories
When people (friends, family) have labeled me a CTer re 9/11, I've asked them to give me 5 minutes of time to show them why the OS is a conspiracy theory in and of itself.

How many takers? None. I must be doing it wrong, I thought. But after a while I realized that the alternative to the OS is simply too frightening for the sheep to consider. Normalcy bias and cognitive dissonance... Welcome to the twilight zone....

They have "normalcy bias". They don't want to know actual truths.

Re: CBS This Morning Training People How to Handle Crazy Loved Ones with Conspiracy Theories
How many "conspiracy theories" have been proved true?

50?

100?

It isn't conspiracy theories they fear but the truth.

They want to be able to operate with no oversight, that's why once they establish this narrative, they will come after sites like this.

They want us silenced for good, so the demons can run amok.

He was probably just some shill getting us all to self identify as "conspiracy theorists" and it looks like it worked, lol.
 Quoting: ~Newton's Own~


Not true. Most crimes discussed here can be traced back to a single entity, not only that but the crimes committed by multiple individuals are usually perpetrated as a direct result of propaganda used by a single entity known as a corporation in order for its agents to unknowingly act on its behalf.

Re: CBS This Morning Training People How to Handle Crazy Loved Ones with Conspiracy Theories
Which conspiracy theories? The new one that Epstein didn't commit suicide and was probably extracted?

Or the one about (insert mass shooting name here) not being what it's presented as being?

Or the one about Obama's birth certificate (that he doesn't have)?

Or about the vaccines causing autism (which we can prove)?

Or about the chemtrailing (we can go outside and SEE)?

Or that JFK wasn't killed by Lee Harvey Oswald?
Or RFK wasn't killed by Sirhan Sirhan?
Or MLK wasn't killed by some other guy with 3 names I can't recall?

Or that there were no Weapons of Mass destruction in Iraq and the whole war was a lie?

As was Vietnam with the Gulf of Tonkin?

Or why did Building 7 go down during 911 when it wasn't struck by anything?

Ad infinitum.


I guess the only answer for the System is....mass lobotomies. Because as long as people can THINK AND ASK QUESTIONS....there will always be "conspiracy theories". Also known as....investigation.

Re: CBS This Morning Training People How to Handle Crazy Loved Ones with Conspiracy Theories
How about the "Conspiracy Theory" that Hillary repeatedly and deliberately violated National Security and got Americans killed (esp in Bengazi) and not a goddam thing happened to her or any of her underlings?

Or the one that the FBI, CIA and DOJ (among others) were involved in a coup against a DULY ELECTED PRESIDENT?

Or that Osama bin Laden was NOT killed by Seal Team 6 and dumped into the ocean?

Or maybe that Seal Team 6 was then murdered to cover that up?

We could go on and on and on.....all the way back to the LINCOLN ASSASSINATION (Booth was NOT shot in the barn, he lived under aliases until he killed himself in Enid Oklahoma in 1903, IIRC).

I can't tell you how many times this has happened to me on VARIOUS topics. Whether 911, or chemtrails or vaccines or Epstein or Hillary or whatever...people don't want to know. They don't want to think about anything complex, or unpleasant. They really want to live in some kind of fantasy world, but I think that's not going to be possible at some point soon when the economy collapses. As it has to, this rate of growth is fake and can't be sustained. Hard times make hard people. We've been too soft. Until then, I think we have a solid 25 maybe even to 30% of the population who are willing to consider these ideas. Maybe we can keep pushing it upwards.

In order for a theory to become a conspiracy theory you must place blame.

Saying 9/11 was an inside job isn't a conspiracy theory.

Saying 9/11 was an inside job perpetrated by the mayor and the owner of the building is a conspiracy theory.

Of course, we all do. A conspiracy is when more than 2 or more people plan to do something in secret - either an event, a project, a program, whatever. Something they want to hide from the rest of us especially if they can give it a facade of being something else. That's all it is. The idea is not complex.
