You know I agree with the statement

". . . The illegitimate government in Washington, D.C. is the largest purveyor of "scare-mongering conspiracy theories . . "

That's true, they said Al queda was powerful, That there were tonnes of deep cover al queda agents, that al queda had Nukes, on and on.

And then they said that the economy would tank without the bailout, America would colapse if GM went under, and I'm sure there is more to come.

BUT - Why does it always have to come back to 911 with so many people here ?

For the sake of argument, let's just say that you are correct, that some factions within the government let 911 happen, and even increased the impact. Then created a nearly religious myth around the ficticious story.

How would you regain control from the ones that created this myth ? Would you set yourself up as a heretic, like Jesus, or scream the truth from the wilderness like John the baptist ? Nope, we all know what happened to them - and the same (in a political sense) will happen to you.

If you want to win politically, you cannot directly challenge people's myths - this only pisses them off, you have to work at the edges, You need to consider how and why they hold the strong beliefs that they do, and be willing to start from common ground.

Most of all, you need credibility, and identifying yourself as being far from the mainstream will not give you the credibility you need to convince anyone of anything. google thought reform, and exit counseling for some better ideas.

If you want to be succesful in a political arena, you must give up
