How do you react to conspiracy nuts?
 
Pretty much if you can name it he believes it. Bush did 9/11, Osama Bin Laden is a US agent, the moon landings were faked, the CIA killed Kennedy, Gorbachev secretly worked for the CIA, oil companies are secretly blocking solar power to keep us on oil. Junk like that.

Oh, yes. He's also 32 and lives at home with his parents.

Does he believe Obama is a sleeper-cell Muslim?

Susanleech 07-21-2008 03:34 AM

Just what you said: secretly plot against him. http://www.discussworldissues.com/im...ons/icon14.gif

USA is the super greatest best country ever, disagreeing is believing in a conspiracy. http://www.discussworldissues.com/im...ons/icon14.gif

Finally, the term conspiracy theory is really a poor one or at least an extremely general one. A conspiracy is when 2 or more people plan something. If you post here that the food in my refrigerator is a result of my wife and I going shopping, you are a conspiracy theorist. A much better term would be government skeptic. Asking critical questions about politics/the guvmint/whatever is pretty much normal (and even needed in an open society). However the classical conspiracy stuff is more than a healthy bit of skepticism. Most of the time you see a rejection of any "official" version followed by the presentation of an alternative "truth". Of course, heaven forbids that one applies the entire criticism/skepticism thing to that as well. That is when conspiracy stuff moves from normal criticism to irrational "I want to believe" nonsense.

Since this post was mostly nonsensical, I'm not sure if the excerpt I've quoted was meant to be presented as fact. Regardless, I'd just like to point out that it's simply incorrect. Maybe in the old version, I bet you didn't even check what they say now http://www.discussworldissues.com/fo...milies/mad.gif

a) I don't think Bush did it but I think there is alot more to the story than we are being told. Hence no true investigation. There's no investigation on a conspiracy because no such investigation is necessary; U.S. intelligence agencies dropped the ball and some nutball Saudis crashed planes into our buildings. I know it's hard to believe, but that's exactly what happened.

b) don't believe it, but he was funded by the CIA when fighting the Russians in Afghanistan. False. The CIA did not fund, directly or indirectly, the MAK. The CIA provided assistance to Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) agency which did have contact with the MAK.

d) don't know who killed Kennedy, but I don't believe the story we have been told is 100% true. Physics disproves the second gunman theory; the trajectory and positioning of Oswald and the bullets has been tested and proven to be true.

f) They certainly aren't aiding in solar power but I doubt buggy manufacturers aided General Motors. So technically it's probably a conspiracy and technically it's probably true, but not at all devious or different than what any other business does (i.e. Senior Mgt, Board of Directors et al conspire to stay in business) There are enough companies without significant stakes in oil companies to attempt to promote such products if they're economically sound. Since solar power doesn't produce nearly as much energy as oil/coal/natural gas nor is as economically efficient, solar power remains a novelty.

Finally, the term conspiracy theory is really a poor one or at least an extremely general one. A conspiracy is when 2 or more people plan something. If you post here that the food in my refrigerator is a result of my wife and I going shopping, you are a conspiracy theorist. A much better term would be government skeptic. Not necessarily; your belief in "conspiracy F" didn't have anything to do with the government, unless the Trilateral Commission or something is involved.

Tell him some men in black suits came by asking about him. Suggest he needs to go on the lam immediately - they're very close. He leaves, problem solved.
