Those were extremely tepid 'ad hominems',
You called everyone who doesn't believe the "Official Story", Stupid.... how is this "Tepid" exactly?
especially considering that they weren't specific
You called everyone who doesn't believe the "Official Story", Stupid... how is this not specific, exactly?
and logically speaking, they're entirely true.
Your Opinion has absolutely nothing to do with logic, and secondarily, is demonstrably untrue.
It was never meant to mean that conspiracy doesn't occur
So... you are calling yourself stupid?
However, it shouldn't be turned to as the most probable explanation as often as it happens in our day and age.
So, let me get this straight....
Over the past week, Trillions of individual events occurred
Over the past week, Thousands of Events made it into the public perception via the news.
Over the past week, ONE event was labelled as a "Conspiracy" by people on ATS...
And you think this means, that we believe that "Conspiracy" is the most probable explanation for everything?
Wow... you sure are obtuse.
As for the second "ad hominem". Cynical means to think less of people. In this case, to imagine that every politician is bad, or capable of
being bought off
We don't think all politicians are bad... just most of them.
And this is also demonstrable.
that our police officers are all crude
Nah, we don't believe that either.... just some of them.
or that our media has no real intention to promote the public good
BAHAHAHAHA, you are saying that they DO?
Look pal, there is a difference between being cynical, and being realistic.
Only someone so committed to these views is able to blind himself to his own (albeit, unreflected upon) cynicism.
Only someone with his head in the sand, believes that power doesn't attract the corruptible, and that psychopaths don't seek power.
Go back to your Sand Bank, and keep your head buried, it seems to be your best outfit.
