Why are some people so hostile to conspiracy theories? Especially the educated types?
 
Here's just one response I got in regards to Netanyahu getting prior knowledge of the bombings. Notice how the bulk of his response is moronic sarcasm, and a deliberate sidestepping of the question.

Who needs a conspiracy, when you can do it out in the open because your captive audience refuses to believe the government can do any wrong???

=====================

I can't believe I'm even thinking about this bollocks but here goes:

Let's assume that Scotland Yard really did warn Netty about a risk of terrorism, which is far from established.

1. So Scotland Yard is part of this massive Byzantine intergovernmental plot that would offend the humanity of anyone involved? Way to keep things need to know.

2. Why do they give Netty a warning? Firstly, wouldn't Netty dying be good for the militarist plot? If he is part of the world government conspiracy, then why wasn't he already discretely informed rather than by Scotland yard to his staff?

If Netty was in no danger of actually going to the specific sites (which the authorities know about) why warn him when he was at no actual risk?

3. How many times on average does Netty get cautionary terror alerts, particularly on a foreign trip? Do you think that he might have a reason to be considered a particular target by any chance, with a correspondingly low threshold for alerts?

Come, come THUMPER. Stop playing all innocent.

You know why...because they're STOOPID...actually, from the psychological point of view...most people make a pact with their oppressors at a VERY early age.

As children, as we are told to shut up, do as you're told, why do you ask so many questions, is'nt it enough that i told you so, i dont care if you think it's not fair, while you live under my roof sonny you'll do as you're told, you're not qualified to comment darling - you hav'nt been to university, oh look dear - a man in a suit with a tie says we can all relax and go back to sleep - the government is looking after us, damn kids are a nuisence, i put food on the table sonny and i want some respect - i dont care if you find me beating you're mother not fair - shut up...

Is it any wonder?

Maybe we should stop blaming "them" and look at how we bring up our kids which we still have 'some' control over still.

Because it scares them. The more educated, generally, the more a person relies on authority figures to give them their sense of self. They have bought into the system more than most.

I think the more educated they are, the less instincts they have.

Well , a government education is not a real education. You can only be educated if
you use your own money to buy your own books, etc
that you yourself choose. It's a spiritual law, it's God's Law.
A phd or a masters or doctorate is useless. Because stolen money
was used ( called taxation ),
to that extent curses come into play, no matter what Mr. famous or Mr. idol says.
My company only hires people who renounce or
do not have a state university degree - miseducated people.

the ego.c/p from m e croft.
When I hear, “I don’t believe in conspiracy theories”, what I hear is, “I’ve made up my mind based
upon what I’ve been told to think by the Media Mafia conspiring to propagandize via TV, radio, and
newspapers; please don’t confuse me with the truth.” What’s true is these people do believe in conspiracy
theories - the ones they’ve been fed. If what they believe - what they’ve been told to think - were true, they
wouldn’t need to believe it. Belief is of the ego mind and hence, false. When we know something is true,
we don’t need to involve our egos. This is why we don’t really have much emotional attachment to the
truth. It just is. It is when someone becomes emotional about a subject that I know they only ‘believe’ it.
This usually comes up around religious or political beliefs. They are protecting their programing which has
settled in the ego mind. The truth is foreign to anyone who argues those two subjects. It is their not
knowing which causes the emotional response. Anyone who has certainty, which is from their experience,
has no emotional charge on it. Arguing, by definition, is a reaction of the ego. This is why no one wins an
argument. There is no win when the ego thinks it has won.
The Media are the sycophants of those promoting their agenda but it really is not ‘conspiracy’ -
“plotting for treason, murder, sedition, or other evil-doing” (Oxford English Dictionary); it is complicity -
“accomplice-ship; partnership in guilt” (OED).
The word “theory” means premise yet to be proven. So when one puts it all together, “I don’t believe
in conspiracy theories”, it sounds rather weak. I don’t believe in conspiracy theories either. I don’t need to;
I know of the evidence of complicity”. Along with being accused of “believing in conspiracy theories”, I
am also accused of being a ‘cynic’. :-)

Sounds like TrueBeliever bases the "brainwashing" on his mother and/or father.

Not all parents respond in the manner he has described.

Because it messes up their "belief system."

Because they are rigid in their beliefs.

Because they have accepted what they've stored in their brain for decades as facts.

Because it is difficult to "deprogram" yourself.

Because they think too logically in an illogical world.

Because they want proof!!
