It's Not a Bug, It's a Feature
The Truthers continue their usual backbiting, schisms, and mutual accusations of being government operatives. This is no surprise, when a movement does not have reality to give them a common foundation, these types of things happen. What is amusing though, is the complete lack of self-awareness on this point. A post on Truth Action makes this point:
In my opinion, the Truth Action forum is the most important 9/11 truth forum. Regular posters here are among the most thoughtful and broadly aware of those participating in 9/11 truth. To post here is to stand up to total scrutiny. We try to set the bar as high as the stakes. No time for wackiness.
But there's something missing. Certainly the elephant in the room.
I believe, based on a good deal of direct experience as well as an awareness of social movement history, that this movement has been heavily subverted by dishonest people.
But we don't talk about it much. Why?
He then goes on to list all the people who he thinks is dishonest. Of course what he fails to mention, is the people he lists make the same accusations about his faction.
And they are both right.
This type of dishonesty paired with paranoia is not incidental, it is an essential part of the movement, or any conspiracy theory for that matter. As we say in the software world, it's not a bug, it's a feature!
