I was listening to the radio today and I heard this guy on the Michael Medved show. Jonathan Kay. Who has a book out called Among The Truthers.
Which basically attacks and demonizes conspiracy people in my opinion.(and I am proud to be called a conspiracy person) But he has supposedly
traveled the land with different conspiracy theorist. Even though I wonder if he told them his true motives at the time. To I guess get a grasp on
“Among the Truthers” is a remarkable book, not least because its author, Jonathan Kay, appears to have emerged with his sanity intact after
immersing himself for several years in the wilder precincts of conspiracy theories about everything from President Obama’s birthplace to 9/11 to
vaccines. Like a modern-day Gulliver, he has traveled widely and conducted numerous interviews to map what seems like every nook and cranny of the
conspiracist universe. Yet Kay, an editor and columnist at the conservative Canadian newspaper The National Post, has not written a Swiftian satire on
the foibles of humanity. Rather, he sounds alarms about what he depicts as a mounting paranoia inspired by an invisible and nefarious oligarchy.
Here are some of the things that triggered me during the radio interview that he said.
Normal people are intimidated by conspiracy people and that is why they don't like to discuss things with us. Becuase conspiracy people have a whole
bunch of facts and a normal person isn;t a human google.
Hey says the most dangerous conspiracy is about health and the phramaceutical industry. Where a parent won;t get a vaccine for there child due to
what they have heard about them. ANd then that child dies or gets a serious illness.
He talked about Richard Gage the leader of the 9/11 truth movement. And how he gave up his whole life for the movement. He was a repsected architect
that went to work everyday. And now evere since hehas been a part of the truth movement he has lost his wife and has bad relations with his son.
I think the most interesting thing he said was conspiracy people see there conspiracy as some sort of religion. Thats why when presented with facts
countering there conspiracy they rely on emotion.
May be if people find this interesting we can talk about that. I don;t see conspiracies as a religion.
