Conspiracy Theories or Conspiracy Fact?
Vital Information for Those In The Know About Major Conspiracy Theories And a Strategy for Reaching Skeptics and Those Who Don't Know
You may have noticed that we consciously avoid using words like "conspiracy" and "conspiracy theories" in our messages. We do this not because we don't believe there are major conspiracies happening in the world. The official story of 9/11 is a conspiracy theory in that the government claims 19 hijackers conspired together to hijack four planes and create terror in the world. We avoid using words like "conspiracy theories" because many people who are not aware of the major cover-ups being hidden from the public shut down their rational mind as soon as they hear the word conspiracy. The main purpose of the WantToKnow.info website is not to preach to the choir—those who already know about 9/11, mass media, mind control, UFO, and other conspiracies—but rather to reach those who know little or nothing about all that is going on behind the scenes. We have found that the most successful way to reach those who don't know is to present them with reliable, verifiable information that does not overly tax their belief systems. Psychologically, most people can't handle too much disturbing information at once. Thus, we initially present only a small chunk of the conspiracy which the uninitiated can, we hope, digest without being overwhelmed. Yet for those who are ready, we also offer lots more resources to go deeper.
