Now before you jump to say that the internet has been integral in advancing conspiracies, please hear me out.
I have no doubt that the internet has made information readily available. Obviously, when something happens in the world today, the internet allows
millions of people to be made aware and for the news to spread relatively quickly. But has this also allowed panic, hoaxes and disinfo to spread too,
negating the possitives?
Also there is something to be said for the internet making conspiracies too easy.
In the old days you would need hard evidence that you obtained yourself, photos you took, or an insider you met. Research had to be thorough and able
to withstand inquiry.
Has the internet made things too easy? Has the integrity been removed with the advance of broadband and computer technology?
I am sure, that given twenty minutes, you can find a you-tube vid, news article or report to support absolutely any argument that one wishes to
Has the internet made conspiracies more unreliable, less credible than they already were? Has CGI and digital technology made conspiracies less
I beleive the answer lies somewhere inbetween. Take 911 for instance. The internet has allowed analysis and theories to flurrish, but on the other
hand how many bogus theories since debunked have circulated on you-tube, ATS and the far reaches of the Web?
I'd appreciate your views on this matter.
