Negating the "conspiracy theorist" label
#26
Boy do I 'get' this topic... I'm a wounded veteran. Aside from the online scorn, I've also had it personally, including the psychiatric angle. Several thoughts come to mind:

1) Give them David Ray Griffin's argument that 'the official story' of 9/11 is itself a conspiracy theory.

2) Provide for them some information about laws dealing with conspiracy, such as the RICO act.

3) Point out noted others who have examined the evidence and come to the same conclusion .. particularly useful in 9/11 when you can parade in front of them the names, pictures and statements of highly-decorated conservative Marine combat air pilots who have also served as assistant secretary of defense who say that 'that dog don't hunt'.

4) Be relentless in putting before them the evidence, the logic, the research, etc. Assemble little packets of 'goodies', like a sampling of chocolate morsels, for them to consider. Keep them updated on forthcoming new information, insights, research, books, etc.

Bullets do not take left-hand turns en route to the target. The upper third of 100-story skyscrapers do not twist and begin to fall and then suddenly turn into a cloud of dust. Show them, as Griffin has done so well on the topic of 9/11, how the cover-up has been handled.

They haven't done their homework; do it for them.

They are in denial; be gentle, and explain that lots of others have been as well, and that it is a natural reaction to disbelieve the horror of it. One thing that has helped in one personal case is that, as time has evolved, events have shown an emerging truth; when your predictions as an observer of deep politics start to come true, they start to give you a little more credibility.

Begin to unplug from the system, and show others how to stop giving 'them' the attention, energy, funds and support they need.

As Fitts would say, starve the tapeworm.
