Conspiracy Theories
  • A recent forum discussion titled Alex Jones touched on conspiracy theory and Lance deHaven-Smith's intelligent book on that topic.   This past January 4 the New York Times had a "debate" with the topic "Are All Conspiracy Theories Bad?"  http://www.nytimes.com/roomfordebate/2015/01/04/are-conspiracy-theories-all-bad-17 

    You can guess the array of opinions form the 6 or 7 guests.    The very interesting thing is the readers' comments under guest Cass Sunstein's blathering essay.   Just amazing that a good 75% of the readers just didn't buy the official narrative of 911.   It was so heartening to read most of these comments.   A more enlightened audience than i would have suspected amongst Times readership. 
  • A lot of folks read the Times the way Russians used to read Pravda...between the lines.
