That read was quite amusing. S&F great find.
I agree with above posters, over-generalization.
There are so many examples of conspiracy theories proven fact, that it's idiotic and actually irresponsible to not actively search for the truth on
any matter. Whether it relates to government, science, or the mysterious.
The majority of conspiracy theorists I know are just truth seekers. (Albeit, I really don't know many in person, just online.) They want
transparency. In government, in what's in our medicine and food. What our governments are up to. We live in a "supposedly" free country. We want to
know that we are free through disclosure. There are bad apples in every bunch. You have Christians that are down right diabolical. Liberals who are
out right impractical. And conspiracy theorists who are looney tunes. It doesn't mean that every person who is interested in conspiracy theories are
crazy or want to live in a Mad Max world. But that seems to be the agenda as of late, as to how the mainstream responds to people who claim an
interest in conspiracy theories.
I don't see much change if conspiracy theorists ruled the world. Why? Because they are just people and the term "conspiracy theorists" only does
one thing. Defines an interest that person has. It doesn't define the whole person. It doesn't mean they buy into every conspiratorial story out
there. Is that conspiracy theorist spiritual? Religious? Right or Left? Vegetarian? Believe in democracy or socialism? Get what I mean? It's just one
small part of how that person thinks or views the world. There are dozens if not hundreds of other aspects that affect that person's personality.
People have ALWAYS assigned negative connotations to the term "conspiracy theorist." But after Waco, Colorado, Sandy Hook, and countless other
examples, can you really blame them? Like I said, their are bad apples in every bunch, no matter the brand. They spoil the rest for the outsider
looking in. It's to be expected.
I believe it is imperative - to question our government and corporations. Conspiracy theorists are a necessary check and balance in my opinion. And to
think that some of our leaders out there, aren't already interested in conspiracy theories themselves, is downright naive.
For those who live in their own little world and are content with their life and oblivious to all the suffering and strangeness going on around them.
I'm envious, because I bet you they sleep better than I do.
