The real facts, from Vincent's lists and my quotes, are clear: i) there are many real and proven major national and international conspiracies; ii) an unknown number of conspiracies, maybe a majority, are still secret - successfully covered-up; iii) establishments, via control of mass media, try to stigmatize any investigator or whistle-blower by claiming they are `conspiracy theorists' and therefore not believable (a real non sequitur, since any suspicion of a conspiracy is by definition a `theory'); iv) periodically media hacks - directly or indirectly paid or controlled by MSM and establishments - re-hash that `conspiracy theory' canard as if it were true and therefore dangerous to society. What could be more dangerous than the real and proven conspiracies - many murderous and often war-mongering, and _all_ designed to keep the public in ignorance - that we already know about? And don't forget there _is_ an unknown number of conspiracies in existence that we can only suspect or guess at. Cheers Ray D Listen to 'Strange Days...
