    This is just my own observation anyway. I see many in this forum who are constantly mocking & ridiculing all Conspiracy Theories being discussed here. These people seem very closed-minded and ignorant to me. Also,ridicule is a very important tool used by the Government to shut down discussion. After all,who would listen to a "Crazy Person" right? It's a tool used to shut people up.

    Obviously not all Conspiracy Theories are credible,but some are. So to close your mind completely and pretend there are no Conspiracies,just seems really crazy to me. Governments lie to their People 24/7. So i see no valid reason to just accept everything they tell us. Very little of what they tell the People is truth. So in the end i feel that those who believe there are no Conspiracies are just as crazy if not crazier than those who believe everything is a Conspiracy. What you think?

    And sometimes ridicule and mockery of a crazy theory is just that.......ridicule and mockery of a crazy theory

    What you need is some corroborating evidence, things we like to call facts. Without them crazy theories are just that

    I'll agree that it's ridiculous to dismiss all conspiracies out of hand, but at the same time I think it's good to remember that the bigger a conspiracy gets, the harder it is to keep secret. I'm talking exponentially harder.

    My favorite example: Watergate. The entire Nixon inner circle couldn't even carry out the burglary of one guy's office without fucking it up and someone squealing, and we're talking about a conspiracy involving a handful of people.

    Not all Conspiracies are credible. That's for sure. But to simply dismiss all Conspiracy Theories,just seems crazy to me. Governments do routinely lie to their People. They've given us no valid reasons to believe everything they tell us. I think it's very important to question their word on everything. Because they are proven consistent liars. That's how i feel anyway.

    So you believe there are no Conspiracies? That doesn't mean you're smarter in any way. It only means you're very closed-minded and ignorant. Believing everything Government tells you is as loony as it gets.
