I was wondering if anyone has talked an "official theory" believer into a truther through study and discussion.
The term, "official theory" is a misnomer. What the 9/11 Truth Movement needs to discuss is the actual massive evidence from thousands of
independent sources and lines of evidence all converging on the conclusion that 9/11 was not
an inside job. THEN the 9/11 Truth Movement has to
refute all of that evidence.
That has never been done and for a reason. The terms "official theory" and "official story" were originally designed as propaganda terms to
connote that explanations about the events of 9/11 came from the government
only and were just a theory
There were good reasons why the 9/11 Truth Movement adopted this propaganda strategy and why it is still used:
1) The most important benefit, as with all propaganda, is that a good number of people will interpret the meaning
of the terms as originally
intended by the propagandist. The more the better for the propagandist's purpose.
2) The terms, "official theory" and "official story", serve the purpose of changing the rules. Rather than having to deal with the reality of
massive amounts of evidence from thousands of independent sources, the propagandist just has to say: "it's just a theory or story from the
government and mainstream media. That's what they want the sheeple to believe." Thus we have the 9/11 Truth Movement believing simplistic terms
like, "How could Arabs living in caves do that
?", "No building could fall like that
without explosives", "No plane hit the
3) Propaganda has a definitive purpose. 9/11 Truthers who believe the above are just as capable of claiming that the "sheeple" have fallen for the
propaganda of the "government" and, therefore, are immune from propaganda themselves.
More often than not, 9/11 Truthers don't consider that
what they are being told by the "Movement" and their "leaders" is designed as propaganda specifically for the target audience of 9/11
But that's exactly what it is.
It is important for 9/11 Truthers who actually are interested in the truth no matter where it leads
to question, question, question everything,
including and especially
their own beliefs. Critical thinking is key.
There are those of us who are skeptics by nature and training. We question everything we are told by anyone. We do not care where the evidence takes
us. We understand that in the case of 9/11 that the claims, assertions, distortions, bizarre theories, and propaganda terms are designed to obfuscate
the fact that the 9/11 Truth Movement has never
been able to refute the massive evidence it claims is just an "official story
Always question your beliefs.
