    (NaturalNews) In light of the string of the blatant falsehoods being announced by the U.S. government these days (FDA, DHS, White House, etc.) it's interesting that so many people still believe whatever they are told by "official" sources. It brings up the question of the functioning of their brains: How could a person swallow official information so gullibly and so completely without even asking commonsense questions about the reliability or factual basis of that information?

    These people, it turns out, are operating from what I called The Gullible Mind. It is a psychological processing malfunction that filters out information based on its source rather than its integrity. People who operate from The Gullible Mind tend to have misplaced trust in governments, institutions, mainstream news networks, doctors, scientists or anyone who wears the garb of apparent authority.

    Governments never lie
    But how does this work inside their heads? It's an interesting process. Gullible Mind people do believe it is possible for a government (or institution) to lie; but they believe that governments, institutions and doctors choose NOT to lie even when it would serve their own self interests to do so.

    Follow this carefully, because this is the fascinating part. These Gullible Mind people effectively believe that even though a government official could lie about something, they would never actually do so. And why wouldn't they? Because, ultimately, the Gullible Mind crowd believes that governments, institutions and mainstream media outlets operate from a sort of honor code. So even if it were in the interests of our own government to lie to us, it would never happen because that would violate this imaginary honor code.

    A question to the contrary, is why do you swallow information to the contrary of anything Government says, without VETTING THAT INFORMATION, ALSO.

    You're pretty gullible for conspiracy theories, it's a fact and most of your backing-evidence gets debunked for you. What does that mean? It means you're gullible and not vetting the information YOURSELF, but swallowing it like the lemming you're proclaiming everyone else to be.

    Congratulations.

    All one has to do is look at the source this "official" information comes from, and they will see that they are known, proven liars with a vast history of lying to the American People. That's why I don't immediately believe a damn thing that comes from them or their controlled media.
    As far as debunking anything, dream on. I have posted substantial proof that the public has reasonable doubt about the governments version of events for a long time now, and comes from credible sources, unlike most of you OCTA people who have to appeal to an authority that constantly gets caught lying. :lol:
    How do you like the "official" new videos of the person who they say is OBL, but looks nothing like him? I mean how ridiculous do they have to make you look, before you wake the hell up?

    "Every politically controlled educational system will inculcate the doctrine of state supremacy sooner or later. . . . Once that doctrine has been accepted, it becomes an almost superhuman task to break the stranglehold of the political power over the life of the citizen. It has had his body, property and mind in its clutches from infancy. An octopus would sooner release its prey. A tax-supported, compulsory educational system is the complete model of the totalitarian state."

    –Isabel Paterson, The God of the Machine (1943)

    In which case you an others of your ilk will have no problem documenting that proof.

    Yet that documentation is never forthcoming.
