Conspiracy theorists are nutters

Paranoid? Don't Worry; It's All Under Control

Have you seen the latest issue of Paranoia magazine?

No? Well, that's not surprising, is it? There's a very good reason why you haven't seen it: They don't want you to see it. They know that Paranoia exposes them and their secret conspiracies to control every aspect of human life......

It continues in this sad predictable and ignorant vein.

My response to Peter Carlson...

Ha ha ha ha ha ha, Those whacky tin-hat conspiracy theorists will believe anything. I mean, let's take a serious look at what a conspiracy ACTUALLY is:

con·spir·a·cy /kənˈspɪrəsi/ Pronunciation Key - Show Spelled Pronunciation[kuhn-spir-uh-see] Pronunciation Key - Show IPA Pronunciation
–noun, plural -cies.
1. the act of conspiring.
2. an evil, unlawful, treacherous, or surreptitious plan formulated in secret by two or more persons; plot.
3. a combination of persons for a secret, unlawful, or evil purpose: He joined the conspiracy to overthrow the government.
4. Law. an agreement by two or more persons to commit a crime, fraud, or other wrongful act.

Let's look at definition 4. Agreement by 2 or more persons to commit a crime, fraud or OTHER wrongful act. That is conspiracy.

No Government would ever do that, clearly.

OK now some people would foolishly believe that the US or UK Government leaders themselves would be willing to partake in such nonsense.

I mean, you would have to have the leader of the USA and the UK actually have secret meetings to plot to commit a wrongful or fraudulent or illegal act for that to be true.

I mean, it would mean that, Oh, I don't know, Bush and Blair would have meetings, the minutes of which would be kept secret, and at this meeting they would discuss how to arrange for the public to be deceived into supporting, what? a war perhaps? Against whom? Perhaps against a country that bore no threat? But that's OK, these so-called conspirators could lie and invent a threat and even invent actual evidence, like yellowcake uranium. They could easily fake, or have the intelligence services of their own, or an ally nation, fake a report to that effect. Even if that did not work and was uncovered, they could publicly ruin the reputation of those that uncovered the great lie.

I mean the very idea of it? It is preposterous.

OK let's take the most ridiculous 9/11 conspiracy, that 19 cave dwellers from Afghanistan could infiltrate and overcome the most sophisticated air defence system in the world and defeat it, without any inside help whatsoever, and then NOBODY in control that day would face any punishment whatsoever for this incredible security failure that cost the lives of well over 3000 people to date (accounting for the other conspiracy that the New York authorities and the EPA told the population that the air was safe to breathe even though they KNEW FOR A FACT that it was not) and that some of those responsible for, and failed in, keeping the country safe on that day were actually promoted instead?

Why that is a conspiracy so crazy that even the joint chairs of the official 9/11 commission even refuse to stand by their own findings, citing too much interference and obstruction from the administration. The same administration, that is, that was in charge that day and rewarded people who failed in their duty, even to the point of being guilty of gross criminal negligence, with promotions and medals of honour.

No you are right, conspiracies are something only other countries leaderships partake in. Shadowy, undemocratic regimes that do not value freedom undertake plots and conspiracies, not the United States. Underhand rogue states that do not allow people the freedom to go about their day without their emails, and telephone calls being intercepted and listened to. Regimes that can break into a persons house without a search warrant just because they feel like it. Regimes that kidnap people and fly them around the world and treat them harshly to extract fake confessions to prop up fake policies. They would detain people for years without charge or trial at secret prisons or even military bases. Regimes that increasingly keep things secret from their ever more fearful populations, whilst expecting the populations to offer up more and more personal details so that these shadowy rogue governments can track and ultimately control their serf populations.

Those are the kind of Rogue States that may stoop to underhand conspiracies and plots, not the great and free USA, THE Land of Freedom.

You are right, conspiracy theorists are nutters!
