Before It’s News – by Truth Excavator “On his Infowars.com Web site, Jones headlines his page with “Because There Is a War on for Your Mind.” True enough, which is why science and reason must always prevail over fear and irrationality, and conspiracy mongering traffics in the latter at the expense of the former.” – Michael Shermer, “Why People Believe Conspiracy Theories,” Scientific American, August 18, 2012.
“The repression and revised imposition of September 11th and the attendant “war on terror” on the public mind have important implications not only for the integrity of public discourse, but also for the collective sanity of western culture and civilization.
As crafted by dominant news media 9/11 has become the cracked lens through which we view and conceive of our own history, identity, and purpose. Each act of subverting or evading factual accounts of actually existing events manifests itself as a small fissure in the broader edifice of truth and rationality. So does it also contribute to furthering the designs of broader forces seeking to build a once seemingly pretend brave new world.” – Prof. James F. Tracy, “9/11 Truth, Inner Consciousness and the “Public Mind,” Global Research, March 18, 2012.
The mocking of conspiracy theories in the American press and Western media is based on the simplistic argument that reason is on the side of the government and officialdom, not on the fringe of society and civilization.
Anti-conspiracy proponents ludicrously claim that conspiracy theorists are prey to paranoia and irrational thinking without explaining their own faulty reasoning. They put a huge emphasis on labels and none on facts. But they’re not unique. Apparently, name-calling is enough to win a court case in a 21st century American courtroom.
Let’s set aside the mockery and look at the real picture. In the court of world public opinion, 9/11 truth has already won.
The truth is that 9/11 “conspiracy theorists” [read truth-tellers] are not the irrational party in the debate about what happened on 9/11, for the facts of history are on their side and no one with an honest intellect can say otherwise.
Since most people are not persuaded by facts but by fear, they blindly reject the truth about 9/11 and accuse the truth-tellers of being irrational, conspiratorial, and paranoid.
In addition to fear, there are four other reasons why people reject conspiracy theories in a wholesale manner, especially the fact-based claims made by the global 9/11 truth and justice movement. Below I’ve stated each reason in bold and briefly elaborated on them.
1. Fear. There are many dimensions to how fear blocks people from discovering, accepting, and telling the truth about 9/11.
The first dimension is cosmic. The official story about the most important socio-political event in modern history has been burned into the heart of American culture and Western civilization. America’s image of itself is wrapped up with the 9/11 fairy tale. For many, the fear of challenging the authenticity of the story is related to the fear of shaking up the cosmological scenery within one’s own mind that has been constructed by political leaders and the television.
The second dimension is social. People have a basic fear; they don’t want to be associated with those “crazy conspiracy theorists and their paranoid views.” They want to stay within the safety of the tribe, and disowning the most sacred myths of one’s tribe goes beyond treachery; it is interpreted as spiritual suicide.
The third dimension is the most obvious one: the fear of death. The government is watching what you say, and read, and it knows what you think and believe. Most people naturally don’t want to stick the bullseye on their chest and yell out in the crowd, “I don’t belong to you because I reject your lies and fables, now come and get me, punks.”
2. Ignorance. Due to the systemic blackout of the evidence showing that the official 9/11 story is a lie, people just don’t know. Not only are they ignorant of the facts underlining the case of the global 9/11 truth and justice movement, but they are ignorant that there is even a media blackout.
Of course, the excuse of ignorance is harder to defend in the era of the Internet and new media. A lot of people who reject conspiracy theories are just too lazy to sit down and do the research for themselves.
3. A False Sense of Superiority And A False Sense of Knowledge. The smugness of 9/11 truth deniers is hard to stomach. They actually look down on new information and new knowledge, which is strange to me. I value learning and am always open to new ideas and new ways of seeing the world.
When I came across ’9/11: The Road to Tyranny’ by Alex Jones in February 2004 I was floored. I remember watching the capture of Saddam on CNN a few months earlier and thinking, “Wow, this Iraq War turned out to be alright, at least the Iraqi people got to see justice served.” But the discovery that the 9/11 story was an invented fable turned my goodwill towards the American government to absolute rage.
It was easy for me to rethink the purpose of the war on terror upon seeing the real facts about 9/11 laid out for the first time because I’m not an American so I don’t have any emotional stake in what the American government does. Americans are in a much more spiritually difficult place. The sin of 9/11 must be a heavy burden to carry for such a morally minded country and people.
This article is not about judging anyone or any country, but an attempt to understand why people react differently to the same information. Why do some people think they know how the world works and refuse to accept the validity of new worldviews, while others hunger for such awesome discoveries? I know how ignorant I am of the world, of history, and of mankind, so I’m comfortable with letting go of worldviews if the facts don’t fit.
4. Collective Brainwashing. The brainwashing of America, Israel, the West, and the world since the false flag September 11 events is definitely one of the biggest reasons why people reject alternative interpretations of 9/11 and the war on terror. The nations of the world are living inside the big lie offered by the grand decoder of reality, who goes by the political name of the United States government. The spiritual name for this false decoder of reality is Satan, otherwise known as the accuser.
People live, breathe, and eat the 9/11 lie. It is a live virus that is inside their bodily organs and their digestive systems. A teaspoon of reason is not enough to treat the spiritual patient.
5. Institutional Silence And Cover-Up. Academic, media, and governmental institutions in the West have all agreed to keep the truth about 9/11 a secret from the American people and the world.
The culture at the top of the top of modern American society and other societies as well operates on a basic principle: “keep your mouth shut, or else.”
To learn more about the culture of silence in America’s elite institutions, read, “False Flag Terror and Conspiracies of Silence,” by Prof. James F. Tracy, and “Codes of Silence and Child Abuse Cover-Ups: The Sick Underbelly of Institutions in the US,” by Nathalia Jaramillo.
At the top, secrets are kept, knowledge is guarded, and silence is valued.
10 thoughts on “Why People Reject Conspiracy Theories”
brilliant. simply brilliant article keep up the good work.
have a great one.
People reject conspiracy theories largely because they’ve been subjected to a lifetime the TV’s conditioning.
If you look closely at every TV character who doubts,or questions government policies, or warns people about our government’s nefarious deeds, you’ll see he/she always has at least a flaky, or bizarre personality, if he’s not completely and obviously insane. It’s never a respectable citizen.
When someone tries to inform you of a government conspiracy, you make an association in your sub-conscious mind with the lunatic from the television, and this allows you to easily dismiss whatever he has to say as crazy, or at least unimportant.
These are other associations you’ve been taught to make: 1. All fathers are idiots. (Homer Simpson, Tim Taylor, Cosby, etc) 2. All gay men are moral and wise. 3. Every private citizen who owns a firearm is either a criminal, an idiot, or a lunatic (you’ll never see another show like “Bonanza” where respectable citizens carry guns). 4. Every Arab is a screaming madman, usually armed with an assault rifle. 5. Every Jew is kind, gentle, and wise. 6. Every drug dealer is black or Hispanic.
And since these character traits transcend ALL networks and movie studios, it’s obviously no accident.
See what they’re trying to teach you? Dad’s a fool, so don’t listen to him. Smart people are gay and unarmed. Accept Jewish rule because they’re smarter than you are. Minorities are the problem, not government crime, and anyone who questions the government is insane.
Please smash your television, and go to your neighbor’s house and smash his, too.
If you get right down to it , the so-called ” official version ” is nothing more than a conspiracy theory . Being that a conspiracy is 2 or more persons plotting criminal activity , anybody not involved with it who has an opinion or “theory ” on what happened is thus a ” conspiracy theorist” .
As to the question of why people don’t believe in conspiracy theories , I have a couple ideas why .
a) Sad to say most of our fellow citizens are under the illusion that our gov’t would NEVER kill it’s own people . BULLSH#T.
b ) They have been educated / indoctrinated at their local public school / gov’t indoctrination center to have blind faith in their gov’t . BLIND FAITH IN ANYTHING MADE BY MAN WILL ULTIMATELY GET YOU KILLED .
c )People have been so dumbed-down due to (b) they can’t / don’t think for themselves .
d) When we were children , remember we would always ask “why this and why that ” ? What did the parents say ? They came up with the great response” BECAUSE I TOLD YOU SO !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!And if you kept asking “why” , the result was a couple of leather goods ; a belt in the mouth and / or a boot in the ass . In this day and age if you are not asking the question ” why ” at least 50 times a day , you’ve got no one to blame but yourself .
e) T.V. American Idol , Dancing With The Stars . So You Think YOU Can Dance , etc., etc., . People can tell you who all the finalists are on every show , but can they name their rep. in Wash , their senator ? Things that really matter, HELL NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! .
f ) Last but not least , the general I.Q. of the American people nowadays is either lower of that of an amoeba or whalesh@t . Take your pick .
The reason they mock is simple – the majority are Lemmings and the entirety of their views is nothing more than a reflection of what the rest of the herd thinks as led by their shepherds . Its a spiritual war – not an information war. The Lemmings don’t care about truth because they lack a spirit. They are simply organic beings programmed to survive and without a divine spark.
See youtube “Lemmings Dr William Pierce”
The tools of the zionist occult worshipping elite are Control, Conflict and Conspiracy 24/7.
Change the wording from conspiracy theory to simple healthy skeptical questioning and you opt out of the elite mind control game. Try it out and see how your friends and family will work with the word skeptical about events while they are conditioned to turn off with any suggestion or mention of conspiracy theory.
The ingrained fear of being called anti semite, anti christ or anti establishment needs to confronted to break the power of the elite.
The modern pulpit is the main stream media and the average person spends five or six hours per day listening to bull crap. It affects the mental capabilities to be able to discriminate fact from fiction.
“These are other associations you’ve been taught to make: 1. All fathers are idiots. (Homer Simpson, Tim Taylor, Cosby, etc) 2. All gay men are moral and wise. 3. Every private citizen who owns a firearm is either a criminal, an idiot, or a lunatic (you’ll never see another show like “Bonanza” where respectable citizens carry guns). 4.

Jolly Roger made an excellent point. This is one of the three main problems at the heart of our dilemma these days, as I see it.
“c )People have been so dumbed-down due to (b) they can’t / don’t think for themselves .
d) When we were children , remember we would always ask “why this and why that ” ? What did the parents say ? They came up with the great response” BECAUSE I TOLD YOU SO !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!And if you kept asking “why” , the result was a couple of leather goods ; a belt in the mouth and / or a boot in the ass . In this day and age if you are not asking the question ” why ” at least 50 times a day , you’ve got no one to blame but yourself .”
Japoa also made an excellent point. The government has been dumbing down our kids in their so-called ‘public education’ system for decades. This was what Pink Floyd’s album “The Wall” was all about.
Reason #3? This goes to a statement made in the article which I have to disagree with, to wit:
“. A lot of people who reject conspiracy theories are just too lazy to sit down and do the research for themselves.”
I don’t believe for a minute this is due to laziness. People tend to be lazy when there’s not enough to do, ergo, they get bored. The problem as I see it is that there is FAR too much in today’s society to keep people distracted and ‘entertained’, hence the ‘lazy theory’ doesn’t work for me. I believe the reason for that belongs in category #4 – “collective brainwashing.
The NWO has done an almost irreversible ( in most cases ) job in that category.
I love a good conspiracy theory. Why? Because it’s hard to prove eather way if it’s true or not.What i like most is that they make you think about other options as to what really happened.Sometimes you can convince people that the theory just might have some truth to it and then you have instilled that small grain of doubt to the official story.Look i’ll ware a tin foil hat if it will convince others to at least take a look at it and maybe just maybe i can swing some of them to open their eyes just long enough to see that the one story may have some flaws to it.But in the end i may need more tin foil.
The price of aluminum may go up if too many people start wearing them.
People don’t reject “conspiracies theories”!
Sheeple only do!
I only know that there’s no “conspiracies theories” Only “CONSPIRACIES FACTS”!
