http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Globe_and_MailThe Globe and Mailhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Globe_and_Mailhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Globe_and_Mail has also published a critical article about the movie, titled "Rejecting Conspiracy Thinking Keeps it Alive and Well," in which it is said that
""[...] this stuff [...] it's all been thoroughly debunked for years. Evidently, debunking isn't the issue. [...] Nor can you cite the findings of the professional, journalistic, and academic consensus to someone who's decided that having credibility means being under the sway of shadowy forces. [...]for all the talk of skepticism, conspiracy counterculture is really an anti-intellectual, populist movement - much like Intelligent Design. For all their absurdity, conspiracy theorists try to drag everything back to the level of common sense. [...] Did the collapsing buildings on 9/11 look like they were being demolished? Then they must have been demolished. Did the 757 that hit the Pentagon's blast-proof walls fail to make a plane-shaped hole? Then it must have been something else. Are there unexplained quirks in the official story? Then it must be the work of a higher power. [...] Conspiracy theorists want to see [...] a malevolent design behind events. The notion that calamity might be the unintended consequence of subtler causes doesn't hold the same appeal. Evil, whatever its other uses, drives a great narrative. Complexity, not so much."
Gosh, a conspiracy, who would have thought.
The gov't is our friend, right Avi.
They only do what is good for us and always have our best interests at heart.
It is so comforting to know that we have such benevolent, compassionate and competent persons watching over us.
All that conspiracy stuff has all been "thoroughly" debunked and nary a shred of truth to it.
wow.. good response avi..anyway..new ideas always meet resistance...
i am starting to realize why egyptians used pictures and not words...
Oh, come on Shawn, you have read enough of my posts to know that I am not a big government fan. As I said in my post, I am just showing a response from the other side. I think it is always interesting to examine both sides of the story.
So, do you buy Zeigeist, hook, line and sinker ?
Thanks Yo-Eleven, are these really new ideas, and are you on board with the whole conspiracy theory ?
