Do "Authorities" know what they are talking about?

Great OP.

I think the one thing that we really come here for (ATS) is to work past a lot of the lies we're told by "the authorities."
Questions are always valid.

It's one thing to tell us "we don't know," but it's another thing completely to fob us off with ridiculous stories just to keep us from asking more questions.

Yep...I think most people who come to ATS think this way.

This thread has been a good read. Thank you all.

Reality may be more a competition of different belief/value systems than a fixed set of truths.

Maybe the authorities don't know what they are talking about.

But - obviously - if the authorities don't know, nobody else does either.

So it's best to accept what the authorities say unless you have a damn' good reason for disagreeing with them.

Just make sure you know the difference between an authority and an 'authority'.

I do respect and appreciate authority.

I get a bit uneasy though when I see a naive and unquestioning submission to authority.
