The next thing should be to define what can be proven or disproven. My litmus test for a "useful theory" is that it can be disproven, and that it
There are a lot of alien theories out there -- and they cannot be disproven. They are merely interesting. What can be proven, however, is Alien
contact or technologies -- so the idea of government involvement effects me.
I don't believe 99% of what people say on this blog -- but I like coming back because saying "THAT IS IMPOSSIBLE" is a useless thing in most
instances. Very little in this universe is NOT possible. However, by the same token, the netting of fairies and unicorns is also, probably a waste of
But there really is a tyranny of the conspiracy in society in general. If you look back in history, for instance, most wars by democracies have been
preceded by false flag events, because it is really hard to start wars of conquest without scaring free people. Today, when you bring up the idea that
the war on drugs is a sham, or that the government might be behind an attack so that they could suspend civil liberties, get elected, or just make
Beaucoup bucks -- people look at you as if you are insane.
Well, there is just too much documentation of real events, both in the US and abroad, that shows that governments can and do have conspiracies.
Look at every fascist government in history, and read the 12 steps to fascism. If you find a lot of useless, incompetent cronies getting promoted in a
government, its so that somebody can commit a conspiracy. You don't need a lot of people to commit a major crime -- just a lot of dunces and people
paid to look the other way. They will help you cover it up later by saving their own incompetent skin. In fact, the more desperate the act, the less
likely it is to get revealed.
What if you were an air traffic controller after 9/11 and were told to destroy the Radar records? Well, that is exactly what happened when the head of
security destroyed the tapes -- it is documented, and not part of any "theory." What can be proven? Nothing. This guy might have had a whim, or
might be guilty of treason. Why would he do such a thing? How likely is this to occur on a whim? More likely, he was covering up his own incompetence,
and thus covering up someone else's conspiracy that he probably did not know anything about.
Now, if you were a government that just betrayed the people, you would spend a lot of money on news pundits, people in law enforcement, and even
bloggers -- not that they would know anything, but you would promote a jerk-off beyond his ability to earn money -- someone like Sean Hannity, who
already loves the powerful, and supports every damn thing you do. Sean Hannity doesn't know anything -- he is an idiot. But he will be loyal, because
he can't earn millions of dollars speaking falsehoods to the powerless, unless he has a great patron.
Look around at our media, at our current crop of government bureaucrats; the only persons you find with any modicum of intelligence, are either
crooked, gone, or barely hanging on and called conspiracy theorists.
Who did everyone call reasonable" The guys who said there was no doubt about WMDs in Iraq. The people who said we need to NOT regulate financial
institutions, because they know better. The people who said that we had to bail these companies out. The people who say we MUST have a war on drugs --
we must punish. The people who say we have to privatize our Gas Utility, and then are quiet after the prices quintuple. The people who say we've got
to give tax breaks to inspire innovation, but then garnishing an executives bonus who had a company go bankrupt and dumped all the losses on the 401k
plans -- oh, that goes too far!
Everybody "reasonable" I meet is either a fool or a liar. At least on ATS, we at lease have an idea that we can be wrong. But sometimes, we are
closer to the truth.
