I Wonders why Currently accepted Mainstream Theories about Everything Else Always win and the Alternative Theories about Everything else always Lose?

The reason mainstream theories always win, is for the same reason they're called "mainstream". It's because they're the ones everyone accepts; that's why they call them "mainstream".

So you're basically asking why the most popular theories are the most popular.

It's because the Supranational Sovereign Intellectual Elites OWN just about ALL the main media outlets -- TV, newspapers, magazines, major websites, radio stations -- so they have the power to totally dominate the discussion of any theory, story, news, and propaganda that favors THEM, not the people.


So by owning virtually all of the mainstream media, they control the content of the media and are able to control what kinds of theories get supported and which ones get ridiculed and marginalized.


Here's a partial list of how the media does it:

* Using selective stories that come over as wide-covering and objective.
* Partial facts, or historical context
* Reinforcing reasons and motivations to act due to threats on the security of the individual.
* Narrow sources of “experts” to provide insights in to the situation. (For example, the mainstream media typically interview retired military personnel for many conflict-related issues, or treat official government sources as fact, rather than just one perspective that needs to be verified and researched).
* Demonizing the “enemy” who does not fit the picture of what is “right”.
* Using a narrow range of discourse, whereby judgments are often made while the boundary of discourse itself, or the framework within which the opinions are formed, are often not discussed. The narrow focus then helps to serve the interests of the propagandists.



The above is from: www.globalissues.org...


And this is just a small part of this whole picture.

Your question - as has previously been pointed out, is of a circular nature.

The mainstream view is presented by authority and MSM, it was previously supported through lower education and biased history.

In short - it reinforces mental processes and beliefs that have been invested into the minds of western people since they were children.

To become critical thinkers requires them to question some of their most basic beliefs - or discard them - which process is extremely painful, and close to impossible for most, and usually requires some external stress, pressure or massive personal revelation or event.

I have to ask what is your first language? Because its not English obviously.

Where are you from - don't be afraid to be honest - opinion and comment are welcome from any perspective (but not by all) - I would be very interested if you were North Korean or Chinese.

Without Media bias those Current Mainstream theories will be phased out in favor of "alternative" theories because of Breakthroughs.

Mainstream is of it self the answer.
The (main stream) of information being sometimes forcefully drilled into our minds by every imaginable source.

More often than not, a lie is easier to accept than the truth.

And not all mainstream information is lies, so it's probably accepted as fact because it's factual.

Additionally They also suppress any Scientific Discoveries that can allows "Alternative Theories" Supplants Currently Accepted "Mainstream Theories" but Just few Decades ago this is Different Story. Why this is always happens in last 20 Decades?
