The Idiocy is Spreading
The idiocy and paranoia is spreading to small-town America. This has to be one of the most illogical letters to the editor I have ever read, from the Spokesman Review in Spokane, Wa.
Documentary raises questions
The documentary "Loose Change" played at Spokane's Big Dipper May 10. "Loose Change" is a conspiracy theory that the "U.S. government" planned and carried out the terrorist attacks of 9-11. If true, the worldwide terrorism sponsored and financed by Washington the last half century has come home to roost.
On the other hand, the documentary may be a fatally flawed analysis of the 9-11 tragedy, or even an outright hoax. If "Loose Change" is eventually exposed as a fraud, our "fascist" government may escalate its draconian social control policies legalized by passage of the Patriot Act.
If so, Arab-Americans, undocumented immigrants, peace activists and other scapegoats may, like Japanese-Americans of World War II, end up in interment camps or worse.
This is the hallmark of conspiracy theorists, no matter which way the evidence goes, they can come up with the conclusion they want. If the movie is true, the government is evil. If the movie is not true, the government is still evil!
