Conspiracy Theories

"Without exhaustive debate, even heated debate, of ideas and programs, free government would weaken and wither. But if we allow ourselves to be persuaded that every individual or party that takes issue with our own convictions is necessarily wicked or treasonous, then, indeed, we are approaching the end of freedom's road."
President Eisenhower, 1954

     Whenever a thinking person discusses the possibility of conspiracy in connection with John F. Kennedy's assassination, the Waco massacre, the 9/11 atrocity, Bush's unprovoked entry into the Iraq war, or other contrived disasters, reactionary conservatives encourage people to dismiss the discussion as "conspiracy theory." The mere phrase "conspiracy theory" is supposed to remove the targeted deliberation from the realm of reasonable debate. However, we know from such instances as Hitler in Nazi Germany, that those who perpetrate mass murder often try to distract the people by railing against their opponents as "conspiracy theorists."

"We must speak the truth about terror. Let us never tolerate outrageous conspiracy theories concerning the attacks of September the 11th, malicious lies that attempt to shift the blame away from the terrorists themselves, away from the guilty."

GW Bush speaking before the UN General Assembly 11/10/2001

     It's important to discuss hypotheses about calamities, exploring possible complicity on the part of those people with political and financial power.

      History proves that people in power DO conspire to create disasters leading to wars and attacks on civil liberties. Think the Maine, the Lusitania, Cointelpro, Gulf of Tonkin, and Weapons of Mass Destruction.

"In a time of universal deceit, TELLING THE TRUTH is a revolutionary act."

George Orwell
