Furious that state involvement in major terror attacks is being exposed to a wider audience than ever before via the Internet, a UK think tank closely affiliated with the Downing Street has called for authorities to infiltrate conspiracy websites in an effort to "increase trust in the government".
"A Demos report published today, The Power of Unreason, argues that secrecy surrounding the investigation of events such as the 9/11 New York attacks and the 7/7 bombings in London merely adds weight to unsubstantiated claims that they were "inside jobs," reports the London Independent.
Government Think Tank Calls For Infiltrating Conspiracy Websites!
I'm thinking I should of went with a more sensationalist title for this thread....it is not getting the attention that this paper deserves
Infobores has picked up on this story...so expect more threads about it with infobores links, shame people will only take notice once there "leader" picks up on it
extreme groups may be able to draw on a larger counterculture of conspiracism as a pool of possible recruits.
‘seek the truth, even if it is harmful.’ The reality for many of the theorists themselves is that they are not neutral truth seekers, but are trying to father these theories and their personal careers are staked on it.
Opportunities for direct government confrontation For obvious reasons it is extremely difficult for the government to infiltrate effectively closed networks of disinformation. However, open infiltration is possible in some limited instances. Recommendation: Introduce some limited, open infiltration of Internet and physical sites by government to introduce alternative information. Government agents or their allies should openly infiltrate the Internet sites or spaces to plant doubts about conspiracy theories, introducing alternative information.

Wow Think Tank eh???

We call them Trolls and Shills.
Unless the Government has perfected a Troll/Shill cloaking device i think we've got that pretty much covered.
Can't wait to see who's officially a Troll/Shill!
