With all due respect, Nick:


>What is reality or accepted truth depends on who is interpreting

No, to determine truth, we collect evidence, analyze it as
scrupulously as possible, and draw conclusions closely tied to
it. All else is fantasy and guesswork, such as the evidence-
untainted conspiracy theories which apparently you find more
fascinating than things that can be demonstrated to be true or
are at least arguably so.

Wishing it - or fashioning romantic paranoia around it - doesn't
make it so. And worse: those sorts of cartoon fantasies distract
us from the world's actual problems and horrors which urgently
demand our attention.
