See that is the sham right there because anyone who believes in Chemtrails didn't get the idea by looking up. They read something about it on the
internet and then fit their reality to only those things they choose to believe. The whole movement if you will is fueled by information circulated
around the internet. That's what makes those few posts so damn funny. a reply to: network dude
It's not so much about looking up or looking on the internet, it's about looking and then not looking further unless the message is the same or is
from an authority. See, I can read and hear anything anywhere, even in my own thoughts, but if I stop looking further just
something is coming from an authority or the message changes from the way I knew it, that's when it becomes bad.
So I wouldn't blame the internet. The internet can communicate whatever is placed on it, including real science. The same is true for radio and books
and newspapers and any kind of media or platform someone uses to communicate. It comes down to people and their shortcomings. If it were only the
internet that caused people to become prejudiced then history would be a story of peace and truth - which it's not.
If your concern is over how the internet cannot be controlled and thus people can tune out without obstructions then I have to say the same thing can
happen with anything else. If the radio isn't saying what I want to hear, I can shut it off or change hte station. If the newspaper is too liberal, I
can subscribe to a more conservative organization or just simply get my news directly from the wires without a middleman. If people say things I don't
want to hear, I can choose to not associate with them.
Now, there's different levels of effort needed when trying to tune out things, depending on the medium you use to communicate. If I don't like
someone, I can of course avoid them. I can turn off the tv and stop participating in government and all manners of things. However, at some point,
something like the police will step in and force me to observe the laws of the land. It's kind of like gravity. I can ignore it and act as though it's
not there, but at some point it's going to hurt me and make its presence known. The same will happen with the internet. Eventually, the big
authorative sites will make their presence known, just as the big names do on tv or in the newspapers. If that doesn't work, someone comes knocking.
The truht cannot be hidden forever, as it'll eventually makes i t voice heard.
