Jan. 20 - Jan. 26, 2013 Discussions

My comment for Sunday January 20 was about wandering into the realm of anarchists, where they declare:

          "The most dangerous thing to you and your family is government."

Anarchists are talking at conspiracy theorists and conspiracy theorists are talking at True Believers, but it appears that none of them are listening to one another.  All they pay any attention to is the other person's belief that the government is wrong or evil or both wrong and evil.

Each one of them lives in their own little world where they are the supreme authority on what is right and wrong and what is true and what is not true.  It's a world where questions are more important than answers.  Since unanswered questions are the foundation of their beliefs, their beliefs are based upon ignorance.

I've been arguing about the anthrax attacks of 2001 with conspiracy theorists and True Believers for over 11 years, but I never before wandered into the territory of anarchists.  The big cheese in this world seems to be Alex Jones.
Click on the video below to listen to Alex Jones explain his beliefs:
And the video below is an advertisement for his beliefs:
On, they have not only interviewed Professor James Tracy, who has been arguing that the U.S. Government was behind the Sandy Hook Massacre, but they have been interviewing Professor Francis Boyle, who I haven't encountered since 2007 when Boyle was arguing that the U.S. government was behind the anthrax attacks and 9/11.

These are a scary bunch of people, and the most scary is Alex Jones.  But, each seems to have his own beliefs, and all they really agree upon is that the government is wrong.  If questioned, they probably wouldn't even agree on what the government is wrong about.  They all just know the government is wrong in not agreeing with what each one of them personally believes.

I worry a bit about what some insane disciple of one of these rabble rousers might do, but it appears that combining the anarchists, conspiracy theorists and True Believers into a single force would be like trying to build a pedestal out of billiard balls with no common understanding to bind them together.

At least I hope that's the case.    

On a less serious side, since "Joseph from Spain" seems to be a regular visitor to this blog, I'll mention that I visited Spain in October 1975, staying in Torremolinos but taking day trips to Algiers and Malaga.  Here's a shot I took of a bull fight in Malaga:
Putting this in the context of my Sunday comment on my web site, I'm hoping that the battle between the people fighting the "bull" being spread around by the anarchists, conspiracy theorists and True Believers will end the way nearly all bullfights end:


  1. Hello from Spain:

    And the children are also dangerous terrorists:

    Pennsylvania girl, 5, suspended for threatening to shoot girl with pink toy gun that blows soapy bubbles

    Her family has hired an attorney to fight the punishment, which initially was 10 days for issuing a 'terroristic threat.'

    That's just Fox News turning a stupid story into a big deal to argue their case.

    I don't know what your point is.
