A 911 'conspiracy theorist' responds:
My Letter to the CBC

I just watched your program, “Conspiracy Anyone” on The Agenda, CBC, August 1, 2008.
Thank you for addressing the issue of conspiracy. It seemed that more focus & time was spent theorizing on the mindset of conspiracy paranoia than the details of any of the conspiracies themselves.Two of the four panel experts could not swear by the official theory of the JFK assassination so I assume they suffer from the same conspiracy paranoia which they attribute to the majority. I did not hear them discuss the details of their doubts. If such a malady as “conspiracyitis” could infect the minds of 70+% of the population, it is noteworthy, but the panel was as vague about the science of this psychological phenomenon as they were on any of the conspiracies mentioned. No studies in the area of mass paranoia were cited.
It is unsettling to see the "politically correct" media in action. The logic proposing that Zeitgeist is popular largely because of it's slick production, is flawed; TV has consistently slicker production and a higher quality broadcast resolution than the popular online streaming formats. Some of the online videos rated up in the ranks with Zeitgeist are low-quality, hour-long podium speeches such as “The Energy Non Crisis”. Also, the logic that people are more afraid of random events than a government conspiracy is ridiculous. I would sleep much easier if I believed Lee Harvey Oswald had killed JFK than I do believing in a much larger and more powerful conspiracy that is still with us.
The reason people watch these movies, is simple; there IS MASSIVE CORRUPTION in government, media, the banking community, intelligence communities and religious institutions and people now have free access to that information. Considering that the Gulf of Tonkin incident WAS staged, we have to ask, if an American president can lie to start a war for profit, and if the media considers this historical perspective irrelevant, why should anyone trust the government or the media?
I suggest that a more useful approach to presenting conspiracy subject matter would be an hour of debate on 9/11 with Barrie Zwicker, Alex Jones, David Ray Griffin, Jason Bermas, or other major contributor to the 9/11 truth movement, opposed by an expert who supports the official 9/11 report. Or you could air Barrie's film, appropriately titled, “The Great Conspiracy: The 9/11 News Special You Never Saw”. Zeitgeist, Endgame, Loose Change Final Cut and America Freedom to Fascism are also very popular movies, fit to air. We the paranoid majority would like to see more 9/11 analysis on CBC.
