Replies to Conspiracy Theorists

I talk to a LOT of ppl online; the least of which I intend to keep track of are Conspiracy Theorists.I investigated a lot of the conspiracy theories all debunked by evidence reason and ridiculously excess contingency theories necessary to support the original.Outside of general corruption and well documented ideology, this crap (I'm assuming like yours) falls apart.The scape goats of Aliens/LizardPpl, Jews/Satanists, Rothschild's/Builiburgs; what have you, are latched onto as villains to blame inherent flaws in the system & general corruption and simply understood flaws of ideology/Imperfect-Histories, on. The scapegoats become your own ideology filling the void of having your own meaningful one. I simply don't waste my time on RE-researching refutations that won't be believed by fanatics. Challenge your own preconceptions for once, if you can even manage to grasp that you have them.

One's you tube channel(or blog/what-have-you) is you're own patch of the sky. Like Newspapers we are editors choosing which letters (to the editor) get 'Published'. Although this service is free it comes with authority the wielding of which cannot be construed as a violation of the principle freedom of speech Particularly since EVERYONE gets their own 'newspaper'. Thus the standards of an individual for his publication, cannot compared with a Governing force silencing its critics, a you tuber's impact is artificially local to one's own channel. Shall we discuss Space travel in a cheese related publication? No, because it is merely a distraction from the subject, unless like a child you think the moon is made of cheese.

The "We Armed Iraq" Myth

As discussed in "The Next War Zone" pg 94 and 95 [Google books]
 As I don't have a Blog on Either Reagan, War, [and creating them for this sole page would look far too spartan an addressing of the subjects] or anything on general refutations but this blog, I'll put the well worded description of the "We Armed Iraq" Myth from the book " The Next War Zone " pg 94 and 95, right here.

The US Government Accountability Office (GAO), in its Feb. 7, 1994 Letter Report titled "Iraq: U.S. Military Items Exported or Transferred to Iraq in the 1980s" (GAO/NSIAD-94-98), stated:

"Since 1980, U.S. policy has been to deny export licenses for commercial sales of defense items to Iraq, except when the items were for the protection of the head of state. As a result of the exception, license applications valued at $48 million were approved. The Department of Defense (DOD) has not made any foreign military sales to Iraq since 1967. In contrast, U.S. policy toward Iraq for sales of dual-use items (items that have both civilian and military uses) was not constrained by national security controls, and there were few applicable foreign policy controls until August 1990. Thus, the Department of Commerce approved the licenses for exporting $1.5 billion of dual-use items to Iraq between 1985 and 1990...
Commerce officials told us that because Iraq was removed from antiterrorism controls and because controls on missile technology and chemical and biological warfare were not in place until the late 1980s, few foreign policy controls were placed on exports to Iraq during the 1980s. They said that this, along with the lack of national security controls, resulted in a long list of high-technology items being sold to Iraq during the 1980s.
Commerce data showed that between 1985 and 1990, it approved 771 licenses, valued at $1.5 billion, for sales to Iraq, while only 39 applications were rejected."


Cass Sunstein Is a Fascist, No Really, He IS!

Conspiracy Theories: Causes and Cures by Cass Sunstein and Adrian Vermeule [PDF Link SOURCE]

In a paper written in 2008, Cass Sunstein, legal scholar, and Administrator of the White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, wrote of appropriate government responses to conspiracy theories. In the paper he stated:
"What can government do about conspiracy theories? Among the things it can do, what should it do?
(1) Government might ban "conspiracy theories", somehow defined. 
(2) Government might impose some kind of tax, financial or otherwise, on those who disseminate such theories. 
(3) Government might itself engage in counterspeech, marshaling arguments to discredit conspiracy theories. 
(4) Government might formally hire credible private parties to engage in counterspeech. 
(5) Government might engage in informal communication with such parties, encouraging them to help. Each instrument has a distinctive set of potential effects, or costs and benefits, and each will have a place under imaginable conditions.  
Our main policy claim here is that government should engage in cognitive infiltration of the groups that produce conspiracy theories, which involves a mix of (3), (4), and (5)."

Media Matters claims full quote exonerates Cass and Adrian(in bold) when it only further damns them while OBVIOUSLY leaving a giant loop hole with the phrase "Our main policy claim here" duh, (They also claim Glenn Beck "Cropped" the quote, he read it in full on the radio where he has 3 hours not 1)
