Conspiracy Theory - Analysis of a Weaponised Term
Great interview . . .



Veteran Canadian journalist, media critic and documentary film producer Barrie Zwicker analyses of the term "conspiracy theory" or "conspiracy theorist." Weaponised by the CIA in the late 1960s as a device for its assets in the media to discourage criticism of the Warren Report, the term "conspiracy theorist" became a powerful thought-stopper and has functioned ever since as a tool of psychological control. Barrie Zwicker also shares with us aspects of his experience as a 9/11 Truther, offers advice on how to respond to accusations, and gives us his forecast on the mainstream media's coverage of the 50th anniversary of the "execution" of JFK.

Re: Conspiracy Theory - Analysis of a Weaponised Term
The term "theory" normally implies a significant degree of study and research into the subject. This includes studying all aspects of the subject and other relevant topics.

I find most conspiracy "theorists" don't qualify. Invariably, they lack understanding of even general knowledge of the subject...learning data and facts about something is tedious if you have no interest in the subject. This leads to basic misunderstandings of simple things. They create "reasons" why something happens, without understanding the years of knowledge that explain it.

CTs aren't interested in spaceflight, aviation, weather, geology, current events...they're just interested in conspiracies...and when seemingly everything becomes a conspiracy, then it's all watered down to the point that nothing is a conspiracy...folks just tune out.

I'd listen to chemtrail CTs or Moon hoax CTs if they showed real knowledge, interest, and solid evidence of fakery and such, but they don't have it. They aren't at all knowledgeable in the subject, and have no desire to "learn" about it....which leads to silly ideas about things.

...just my two cents...
