Flimsy Sanity: Conspiracy Theories

Flimsy Sanity

In individuals, insanity is rare; but in groups, parties, nations and epochs, it is the rule. - Friedrich Nietzsche

Conspiracy Theories

UFO's - 48% of people believe that UFO's visit the earth. Chances are that there are other planets with life but the nearest place that could even possibly have life is 20.5 light years away. That would be quite a trip. A light-year is defined as the distance that light will travel in a year. As the speed of light is 186,000 miles per second...

911 is a Government plot - Building 7 collapsing is mighty strange and I do admit that Bush's reaction was odd. 36 percent of Americans according to a Scripps Howard poll, believe that "it is 'very likely' or 'somewhat likely' that federal officials either participated in the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon or took no action to stop them."

Kennedy Assassination - Jack Ruby getting a gun close to the most infamous man of the day was too tidy.

That the atom Bomb was dropped on Japan to intimidate the Soviet Union, the Gulf of Tonkin lie, sinking the Maine to start the Spanish American war, linking Iraq to 911, the Tuskeegee Syphillis Experiment, the 1931 Puerto Rican cancer experiment are just a few accepted facts that read like some wacko conspiracy theorist's wet dream.

To me, the biggest conspiracy going on is a war on drugs - Iran Contra and pappy Bush's involvement (and pardons for the participants), CIA sales of crack (see books Dark Alliance:The CIA, the Contras, and the Crack Cocaine Explosion and Whiteout: The CIA, Drugs and the Press),Clinton's Mena connections, George Bush's war on the poppy suppressing Taliban, Bush's pardons of 14 drug dealers are only a few of the clues to a secret government sanctioned industry that flourishes precisely because it is kept illegal. Like George Carlin says, "If you want to slow the drug industry, put a banker in jail" or better yet, a politician. How wonderful it must be to fund pet projects with money that is off the books. An extra benefit is that the prison industry can flourish and racial prejudice can be concealed as a law and order lie.
