While I understand your concern with the general trend on this site for people to jump to conclusions and speculate with little to no proof, it is a
way to open dialogue. I try to use it as an opportunity to bring in the other perspective.
Personally I think that the bombing is pretty straight forward; which is not to say that the U.S. government won't take full advantage of this
tragedy to gain more power. That will almost certainly occur, and when it does it is very tempting to connect those dots and say that the State
instigated the whole scenario because the behavior from the government is predictable. There are many, many people here who believe that
paradigm--that the U.S. government plans and enacts all of these attacks upons its own citizens in order to make power grabs.
While I personally believe that this is possible, proof of the matter is another thing entirely, and so far I see no evidence that this is the case in
Boston. There are indeed such things as coincidences, and much of the evidence supporting the above mentioned conspiracy paradigm in any circumstance
is subject to interpretation anyway. When nerves are raw, sometimes that interpretation borders on the hysterical, which is some of what is happening
now. This devotion to this paradigm is comforting to many of the people here... As they, like all of us, try to make sense of this chaos.
I don't feel that the tragedy of the circumstance is diminished by this tendancy for rampant speculation here, and I don't know that anyone is being
disrespectful, or at least, they don't mean to be. Sometimes people need for the Raw to heal over a little bit however, and it is wise to be mindful
