kind of stateing the obvious here, but yes its dangerous. weve been seeing alot of reports latley discourging what we do, stereo typing us, and even labeling us. im tired of it to be honest. what most conspiracy theorists(for lack of a better term) do is question events and reports, why is this bad? Questioning things is important. If someone shows up saying the world ends tomorrow most of us question it. If we didnt than wed probably be running to our bomb shelters with every doomsday post on this forum.
What if people had questioned what hitler was saying in nazi germany, would the holocost have ended sooner. So many more reasons why questioning is important, we need to try to find a way to combat all this anti conspiracy propaganda being put on the airwaves, need to find out how to get rid of these labels. if this is not stoped soon than the less people will question things for fear of being called a deather or a birther. This is seriously looking worse and worse for us and other people.

Questioning things is great.
I question a lot of things myself.

The problem lies in when some people get an answer they dont like, they stick their fingers in ther ears (metaphorically speaking) and simply continue to push the same question.

"What happened here was the gradual habituation of the people, little by little, to being governed by surprise; to receiving decisions deliberated in secret; to believing that the situation was so complicated that the government had to act on information which the people could not understand, or so dangerous that, even if the people could not understand it, it could not be released because of national security. And their sense of identification with Hitler, their trust in him, made it easier to widen this gap and reassured those who would otherwise have worried about it.

"This separation of government from people, this widening of the gap, took place so gradually and so insensibly, each step disguised (perhaps not even intentionally) as a temporary emergency measure or associated with true patriotic allegiance or with real social purposes. And all the crises and reforms (real reforms, too) so occupied the people that they did not see the slow motion underneath, of the whole process of government growing remoter and remoter.


This quote is from a book titled, "They Thought They WereFree" "The Germans 1933-45" by Milton Mayer and published in 1955.

It chronicles not only the rise of Hitler and his power structure but the German citizens as well. In the early 50's the author interviewed citizens of post war Germany to try to develop and understanding of what had happened to the people , and how they let it happen.
