First, read the following two passages from Jim Marrs book Rule By Secrecy.
According to conspiracy researchers Jonathan Vankin and John Whalen the American public’s attitudes are shaped by a sanitized “Disney” view of both history and current events. “The ‘Disney version’ of history could just as easily be called the ‘New York Times version’ or the ‘TV news version’ or the ‘college textbook version,'” they wrote. “The main resistance to conspiracy theories comes not from people on the street but from the media, academia, and government—people who manage the national and global economy of information.”
Anthony C. Sutton, a London-born economics professor who was a research fellow at Stanford University’s Hoover institution, agreed that an “Establishment history” dominates textbooks, publishing, the media, and library shelves. “During the past one hundred years any theory of history or historical evidence that falls outside a pattern established by the American Historical Association and the major foundations with their grant making power has been attacked or rejected—not on the basis of any evidence presented, but on the basis of the acceptability of the arguments to the so-called Eastern Liberal Establishment, and its official historical line,” he commented. “Woe betide any book or author that falls outside the official guidelines. Foundation support is not there. Publishers get cold feet. Distribution is hit and miss, or non-existent.”
This refrain was echoed by President Bill Clinton’s academic mentor, Dr. Carroll Quigley. His 1966 book, Tragedy and Hope: A History of the World in Our Time, revealed his insider knowledge of modern secret societies. Quigley said it was withdrawn suddenly by a major New York publisher. “I am now quite sure that Tragedy and Hope was suppressed . . . ,” Quigley wrote in the mid-1970s.
Researchers and writers—such as the late Gary Allen, A. Ralph Epperson, G. Edward Griffin, Dr. John Coleman, Jonathan Vankin, Anthony C. Sutton, and Eustace Mullins to name but a few—have written about conspiracies for many years. But these works are nearly always produced by small publishers with limited distribution. These authors charge that the mass media is controlled by corporate America, which has prevented any meaningful exposure of their material.
Conspiracy theories are an attempt to grasp the “big picture” of history. “We believe that many of the major world events that are shaping destinies occur because somebody or somebodies have planned them that way,” mused conservative author Gary Allen. “If we were merely dealing with the law of averages, half of the events affecting our nation’s well being should be good for America. If we were dealing with mere incompetence, our leaders should occasionally make a mistake in our favor… We are not really dealing with coincidence or stupidity, but with planning and brilliance.”
Less reflective in his thinking was author Johnson, who set the tone for the Reagan years with the 1983 publication of his book Architects of Fear: Conspiracy Theories and Paranoia in American Politics, an outgrowth of a series of articles he wrote as a reporter for the Minneapolis Star. Johnson stated that a large number of Americans simply cannot accept the idea that “there are a number of ways to interpret events,” adding confidently, “there is not a single all-embracing system.” Johnson said paranoid Americans “build elaborate systems explaining all the world’s troubles as part of a conspiracy” to rationalize their fear and hatred rather than accept what he described as a “pluralistic” view of history, economics, and politics.
“There is a difference between those who occasionally succumb to the attraction of conspiratorial explanations and the conspiracy theorists… who believe everything bad that has ever happened is part of an all-engulfing, centuries-old plot,” he offered. Having said that, Johnson was forced to admit that “neither the historical nor the sociological analysis explains why so many conspiracy theorists construct such strikingly similar worldviews.” Furthermore, he failed to note that those who sincerely believe that conspiracies don’t exist only benefit those who may be conspiring.
What can be taken from these passages is there is a deliberate attempt to control narratives regardless of what the physical/historical evidence lays out as proven fact AND any attempt to contradict the controlled narrative is met with ridicule of the questioning individuals mental well being. Ask yourself this question, if you went to a public place and asked people who were passing by about if they thought you were crazy for believing September 11 was an inside job conducted by rogue elements within the upper echelon of government, do you think the vast majority would look at you like you needed to be put in a straight jacket OR would the majority of people say, you’re not crazy, much of the official story of that event does not make sense? While the official story of September 11, 2001 is believed less and less with the passage of time, the majority of Americans still believe the official narrative. They cannot wrap their mind around the concept those in high power would be capable of such evil. While this mentality is naive, it shows that most still have faith in humanity which is not a bad thing… its just bad because they have put confidence in liars without realizing it.
