Why are most Youtube conspiracy theory videos of a not very smart guy on his webcam?

I mean you see it all the time. Some guy in front of his computer, not dressed very well and most often not even good looking will make a video on his webcam trying to debunk someone else? I hate to ask this, but if you are on your webcam and never graduated from college, why are you trying to argue points with someone who has a Phd?

The guy with the PhD is never on his webcam because he is always writing books that get peer reviewed and have all kinds of evidence to prove his point, and he is always in front of an audience somewhere. But the youtube guy always speaks gibberish as though he were intellectual.

Is it just me, or are these youtube webcam guys just getting more annoying?

Well I really can`t say due to the fact I don't go watching youtube videos that annoy me like some. But I also know for fact the government lies to us so everything is a open for whatever and whoever to pick apart.
It`s nice to get their side but research it yourself is a good way to better understand it.
I truest no one.

And as far as the looks remark. Have you seen some of the so called respected brains? Looks have nothing to do with brains.

I think it's because the days of the motor home, camo pants, long hair, and roswell news clippings are a thing of the past. Now the typical "conspiracy theorist" is a youtube guy with some screen capture software, or if we're really lucky a webcam! That's just my view on it...

Every time I see someone post a YT video that shows a guy in front of a cam, getting ready to rant, I can't help but think of this one.....every damn time!

I think this guy is just a little developmentally disabled. But it is a good warning for California, Oregon and Vancouver British Columbia.

Just going to throw this out there: just because somebody dresses in something other than an Oxford blazer doesn't make them uneducated or dumb.

Just because somebody has a piece of paper doesn't make them intelligent.

Also, you don't get funding from challenging the status quo or throwing out ideas that go against the mainstream. You get called a quack, you lose your reputation, and that Ph.D. you spent thousands and years on might as well be used as toilet paper.

Most videos on youtube are of a not very smart guy/gal on his/her webcam.



It's also called critical thinking and deductive reasoning when you watch a video and decide for yourself if the person is credible, their information is valid, or if it's worth Liking.

The first time I ever saw Alex Jones was way back in 2004 or 2005. I remember seeing his video of Bohemian Grove Ceremony..of the big owl on fire, and I was like "what is this man smoking?" I mean how is Alex Jones just able to get into high security places just by walking in.

Seems to me if he really wanted to do guerrilla filming, he should have gotten as close as he could and hid in the bushes with his camera.
