What do you think about people that use emotional comfort to evaluate the legitimacy or validity of information?
Most people I see that won't believe in conspiracy facts(like operation gladio,QE3,Fait currency, and fast and furious,CIA drug trafficking,etc)think that if a form of information makes them feel uncomfortable then its false and if a form of information makes them feel comfortable then its true.

Do you think this form of processing information is dangerous?

Example 1: The Sky is actually green you only think its blue. Green skys mean you will be ok.
Blue skies mean your mentally ill.

Example 2: No the sky is red. Red means love. You want to fall in love with a purple unicorn right?

Example 3: The sky is really made of yogurt. Yogurt tastes good right? If you think the sky isn't made of yogurt you will be imprisoned for second degree thought offense.

Example 4: DHS says they have prevented terrorists from attacking us. They make me feel safe so unconstitutional authoritarian extremist policies are warranted to keep the terrorists from attacking us.

I don't beleive =! I dont trust

" i dont believe anything the MSM says "
b]I don't beleive =! I dont trust
" the govt / eleties / big pharma / monsanto are trying to kill us "
If they had they would have already done it. They still need us at the moment.

" aliens are coming to save us "
I don't believe that really do you?
etc etc


I tend not to believe a source that gets caught lying over and over again and censoring truth.

Would you trust someone that lied that often to you? No you wouldn't.
