Easiest way to shutdown conspiracy theorists is just to find out what part of the brain makes people explore and believe conspiracy theories and then
classify it as a mental disorder. I think they've already done it. The latest DSM has a lot of new things and I'd not be surprised. This offloads a
lot of the work of discrediting people because instead of the government having to discredit, the average joe (anybody!) can just say they're mentally
ill and that's that. This means the public is doing most of the work to discredit and/or ridicule.
Lets see, what does it look like I have:
1 Aspergers or autism-spectrum disorder
3 Perfectionist concerns (lack of strivings)
4 Social Anxiety Disorder
There're probably some others. I stay away from doctors and drugs because I want to be free to learn and change myself without that element. To me,
the pharma industry is scary. Is that a mental disorder to be afraid of authority? They're a juggernaut.
I myself believe 9/11 has secrets, but I don't believe our own government orchestrated it as a false flag. I believe our government may have helped
the enemy by accident, but that's not the same thing as intentionally assisting the enemy. Now, I'm not sure WHO the enemy is, but I trust it's not
us. Who? The official blame lies on Osama Bin Laden, but I've never resonated with that. I think there's more to it than just one man. Does that mean
I have a conspiracy theory? No, unless being unsure means you're a conspiracy theorist.
I don't KNOW anything. Conspiracy theories are not a conviction or faith for me, they're an exploration. I cannot base my choices on them. The same
thing happens when I ask Where did the universe come from?
Or I ask What created God? It's a question, not an answer.
If you believe 9/11 was a false flag then I don't mind so long as you do not choose to use violence or deception or force on anybody who disagrees
with you. Show us the evidence.
It's a conspiracy theory until you can prove it with supporting evidence. What does this, btw, make religion? I'm sure religion could be classified as
a mental disorder too. But because religion is seen as a beneficial agent, it's officially sanctioned by the czar. You can't honestly convince me that
believing a work of fiction is true is -not- some kind of mental disorder. If I grabbed a book about goblins and unicorns and preached it as the
truth and it even impacted the choices I made in life (like avoiding people who say they're satanists or avoiding things that're atheist or secular)
then that's kind of crazy, I think. Of course, if it doesn't negatively impact my life in any serious way then it's sanctioned by the czar, so... Of
course, I'm not heartless. I grew up as a christian and my family is largely religious. I love them and I think religion is a kind of crutch and
wouldn't want to take it away from them. I deeply resent calling them crazy or mentally ill because of their religious faith and would never go that
far. Moreso, critically observing and analyzing yields one thing and life yields another.
