These are people who pride themselves on being able to see through the lies, to detect the ruses and tricks of TPTB. And to prove it they are sending
money to organisations with a proven track record of not advancing their claims. They are doing the precise opposite of being discerning, and paying
for it. I submit that they are being scammed.
Yes, it's a scam. All you need to do is look at what these damned fool conspiracy web sites are doing to see what their game is. Dylan Avery
releases thirty versions of his Loose Change flick where he invents and rejects conspiracy claims the same way a chef experiments with a souffle, Alex
Jones has been preaching "imminent US dictatorship" for the past ten years, and thanks to one poster here, we found out that Richard Gage is now a
multimillionaire entirely from selling conspiracy videos.
Despite their apparent different methodologies, every single one of these con artists have one thing in common- they refuse to do a damned thing to
actually DO anything about all the gloom and doom scenarios they're preaching. They'll just keep shovelling out more and more paranoia to get
people feeling more and more helpless. Richard Gage is a case in point- he literally has everything he needs to calculate where these supposed
controlled demolitions were planted to replicate how the towers collapsed...collapse videos, building blueprints, chemical composition of the
explosives, 1500 experts, etc...which would prove for all time that there was indeed a conspiracy, but he isn't doing it. All He does is repeat the
exact same "It looks like controlled dmeolitions" over and over while asking for more money over and over. The reason for this is obvious- they
KNOW what they're saying is hogwash and they KNOW there's no solution for a problem that doesn't actually exist. Actually doing something more
tangible than dropping innuendo might start getting they're audience to wonder what the heck they're actually doing with all the money people are
shovelling to them.
The problem is, all this conspiracy mongoring is entirely faith based logic in that the truthers WANT there to be a conspiracy, so they'll happily
invent their own excuses for the gigantic absurdities and lapses in logic throughout their claims. You've seen many examples of this yourself- the
planes were all holograms, all the eyewitnesses around the Pentagon were secret agents, the buildings were all fake structures, and the like. Trying
to discuss 9/11 conspiracies rationally with such people is akin to discussing evolution with the Pope. In the end, there's not a whole lot you can
do to get these people from shoveling their money to therse snake oil peddlers.
