Top Customer Reviews
Media shills got the memo from their CIA overlords, and have obediently parroted it ever since.
Use of the term "conspiracy theorist" is a proven conspiracy.
That what this book explains. Excellent book; highly recommended.
The fact so many intelligent people who should know better in politics, media and academia go along with this deception should make you wonder
we are led to imagine some wild eyed individual speaking of their abduction by aliens. deHaven-Smith traces the history and politics of how and why we are trained to dismiss conspiracy theory (and along with it, conspiracy facts and reality).
For those who become incredulous and weary of the way others connect the dots of world events, this book is balm for your troubled, skeptical soul. Your feelings of shame and inadequacy at being called a "conspiracy theorist" will evaporate and the term will become a source of pride.
