Cass Sunstein’s Crippled Epistemology and Conspiracy Theories Theory

with 10 comments


Cass Sunstien’ s Crippled Epistemology on Conspiracy Theories Theory

Sunsteins’ Question; Why do people accept conspiracy theories investigations that turn out to be false or for which the evidence is weak or even nonexistent?

http://wearechange.org/infowars-cass-sunsteins-amnesia-with-luke-rudkowski/

My Sovereign Question; Why do over 75% of American Believe that the Federal Government in someway is Violating the Law without Redress or Correction. Once you see THAT America and ask that question, then the first question is already answered. We the people have seen that almost anything is possible. 

It is tempting for Cass Sunstien; with his Training in “Law and Behavioral Economics” the Study of a Planned Control Economy, to answer in terms of individual pathology and he often uses them out of context to widely held conspiracies.

Perhaps some limited conspiracy theories investigators are a product of mental illness, such as paranoia or narcissism. And indeed, there can be no doubt that some of the Billions of in people in the world who accept conspiracy theories investigations are mentally ill and subject to delusions.

However Laws and Practices have long been established for the humane treatment for the mentally ill that pose a real danger to others. This is a very, very, very small portion of society that could be dangerous and would exist as a threat without conspiracies at all. Thus They can be removed from the equation since the subject ‘Conspiracy Theories and Crippled Epistemologies’ has no direct bearing on their threat and, as history has shown, we can’t stop Conspiracies, Crime will continue, especially at the highest levels and to solve the crime we will have to form Theories.

We Must Note despite this Sunstein and the Mass Media Promote with Cognitive Infiltration and counterspeech, threat levels and fear in the general Cognition that Conspiracy Theorists are paranoid, crazy, delusional, extreme, mentally ill and dangerous, while promoting an atmosphere of terror, fear and conspiracy around every corner.

An Example being The Wal-Mart Tele-Screen Cognitive Cluster “If you See Something…Say Something” because ‘something’ could be endangering you in the Wal-Mart but Conspiracy Theory Investigation is delusional, dangerous and breeds mistrust?

Contact the nearest Wal-Mart DHS INFRA GUARD employee or TSA Agent nearest you isn’t Dangerous?

Having a TSA employee with the Authority and Immunity to touch my wife’s, my child’s Genitals isn’t Dangerous?

But we have many communities and even nations, where such theories are widely held. It is not plausible for Sunstien to suggest and have us believe him that all or most members of those communities are afflicted by mental illness.

The most important conspiracy theories investigations according Sunstien are hardly limited to those who suffer from any kind of Physiological or Chemical Imbalance Induced Pathology.

Suntein supports the Idea that the Billions of Conspiracy Theory Holders World Wide Suffer from the Crippled Epistemologies Pathology of Conspiracy Theories.

The most effective explanation, the simplest explanation is usually correct. The number and magnitude of true and confirmed conspiracies that were denied for so long have caused the world population to expect, guard against and look for any form of Corruption and Tyranny.

For Sunstein’s purposes, the most useful way to understand his view on the pervasiveness of conspiracy theory investigations is to examine how people acquire information and how the majority of information is handled.

For most of what they believe that they know, human beings lack personal or direct information; they must rely on partial and complex government data, what other people testify to and intentional Counter-MisInformation, Counter-Speech and Cognitive Infiltration.

In some domains, people suffer from what Sunstein describes as a “crippled epistemology,” in the sense that they know very few things, and what they know is wrong, yet in spite of incontrovertible evidence, to which they do not have access or refuse to incorporate, they continue choose the False Theory.

Many extremists fall in this category; their extremism stems not from irrationality, but from the fact that they have little (relevant) information, and their extremist views are supported by what little they know. Conspiracy theorizing often has the same feature. Those who believe that Israel was responsible for the attacks of 9/11, or that the Central Intelligence Agency killed President Kennedy, may well be responding quite rationally to the informational signals that they receive.

Sunstein totally ignores and looks past Three Critical Factors of the Real World and Those of Us that He plans to Cognitively Infiltrate and are Dangerous.

  1. Since 1946 the United States Government started Operating Under Ever Increasing Secrecy, leading to Belligerent Government Sharing of Information for Civil Oversight and Increased Mistrust Dramatically
  2. The number of times that the public has been lied to by the Federal and Local Governments (Your Social Security Number will never mandatory and used as Identification, that would be Unconstitutional, Gulf of Tonkin Incident was Misunderstanding)
  3. The Size and Scope of Conspiracies that have been accomplished and hidden in the recent past and throughout History

 

Conspiracies that have given rise to mistrust of Government Activity

  • 1910 meeting on Jekyll Island of Banking Elite to Secretly Establish the Massively Unpopular National Bank (The Federal Reserve Bank)
  • Burning of the Reichstag
  • Prohibition Promoted by Big Distilleries and Mafia
  • The Mafia
  • Project Paperclip
  • McCarthy ‘Red’ Infiltration into Government
  • The Watergate hotel room used by Democratic National Committee was, in fact, bugged by Republican officials, operating at the behest of the White House.
  • In the 1950s, the Central Intelligence Agency did, in fact, administer LSD and related drugs under Project MKULTRA, in an effort to investigate the possibility of “mind control” or cognitive disruption control.
  • Between 1932 and 1972 in Tuskegee, Alabama, The Tuskegee syphilis experiment was conducted by the U.S. Public Health Service, to study the natural progression of untreated syphilis that was given to unwitting ‘negro’ patients.
  • Operation Northwoods, a rumored plan by the Department of Defense to simulate acts of terrorism (Via Hijack planes flown into buildings or blown up over major cities, bombings, shootings, government infiltration, etc.) and blamed on Cuba to rally support for an unpopular act of War with Cuba, really was proposed by high-level officials to the Kennedys (though the plan never went into effect at the time)
  • Government COINTELPRO operated without warrant and oversight throughout the 1950’s, 1960’s 1970’s to gather intelligence, infiltrate and destroy the civil rights movement (including MLK), the Anti-War Peaceniks and Anti Federal Government Organizations (Peaceful and Violent, Lawful and Criminal Alike).
  • Iran-Contra was an illegal weapons; for cash, for oil, for drugs, for illegal foreign political action, US Government operation.
  • There is Missing Military Industrial Complex Funding reaching into the Billions
  • Fluoride, uranium, radium, lead, aluminum, mercury, BPA and other toxins are knowingly added to public municipal drinking water supplies throughout the Nation under Federal Water Treatment systems, guidelines and requirements. This continued fluoridation is against new recommendations of ADA; which now recognizes ingested fluoride as a deadly harmful toxic poison with no beneficial results and recommends only topical application for Fluoride use.
  • The Government has implemented a biometric, full history, threat fusion database system through the New DHS for a national ID registry, as proposed under the Conspiracy Theory of the National ID act in the 1990’s.
  • False Flag Operation Tactics taught in Military Field Manuals and School of the Americas
  • We did and Indeed do Torture.
  • Etc.

By not including this data as a main contributing factor, concern and motivation of the Private Investigators in his Epistemology Sunstein indeed has a Crippled Epistemology with regards to Conspiracy Theories.

These Have Only been Partially Proven and Uncovered Because of Dedicated Ridiculed Personal Private Conspiracy Theory Investigations. We Owe it to These Individuals to continue to Demand and Investigate the Truth.

The Cass Sunstein’s, Left/Right Big Government, Planned Economy, Debt Based Currency, Theory Holders Crippled Epistemology

A truly Crippled Epistemology and one that is Dangerous to National Security, a Free Personal Enduring Exchange in Economy and a Just Public Domain, is the Private Federal Reserve Bank

The Federal reserve Bank Puts the US into Debt with every Federal Reserve Debt Note (Dollar) that they print, they have created over 1,000,000,000,000,000 Notes of Debt (In Just One Market alone, Derivatives) that the United States Citizens are obligated to, on top of what ever additional lien that was created when the treasury bond was sold, or quantitative printing that was done to create it. That is a number greater than the GDP of the entire world over again many times.

Yet as this system collapses under fictional sized numbers, this system of Private Fiat, Currency Control From Afar, this system of controlled planned economy, this system of attempting to create Laws to Control the Behavior in Economics, we are being asked to go Global with a bigger UN, IMF, SDR, Carbon Credit system that is exactly the same only bigger with more regulation from afar and less individual freedom or ability of Redress.

There is no proof that controlled central planning can work in a society of Free and Independent Sovereign Citizenry.

Yet this Incorrect Epistemology continues, facts are ignored, the very world condition and consequences are ignored.

Fraudulent Private Debt Based Currency has placed the world in Monolithic Monopoly Money Debt, Ignored Because More Debt, New Additional Different Debt is the solution of those that are Conspiring to Prop-up the Crippled Sunstein Theory.

And the Machine that is being created to Enforce this Crippled Epistemology and Doublethink Newspeak of Cass Sunstein is a Danger to Personal Freedom and Liberty. (if only in the literal price tag for the secret police)

With the Dollar Dead as a the World reserve Currency What’s After the Fed? We’ll Either Go Global or Go Local – Special Drawing Rights (SDR) or State Bank Initiative (SBI)

It will either be accepting the Fraudulant Quadrillions in Global Banker Debt and Going Under IMF/UN Regulation, Austerity, SDR mandates and Global Carbon Taxes

or

It will be everyone accepting the Debt free, interest free federal greenback with a low fixed rate (interest and printing rates) as well as New State Owned Commodity Banks and State Commodity Depositories

GO LOCAL! Resist Rulership From Afar, it produces Corruption and Tyranny.

Reclaim Local Sovereign Authority, Privately Personally Re-Public Your Local Domain and Local Offices.

Conspiracy Theory Private Investigators or Domestic Risk, Enemy Belligerent and Policey Impediment

with 7 comments


Am I a Conspiracy Investigator and True Defender a Belligerent Against Tyrannical Actions Toward My Fellow Man or a Serious Domestic Risk, Enemy Belligerent and Challenge to Policey Implementation?

Cass Sunstien’ s Crippled Epistemology on Conspiracy Theories Theory

I am an Enemy Belligerent, Conspiracy Theorist Researcher and True Defender Against All Tyrannical Actions Toward My Fellow Man (I take after Jake Gittes, I take after Eddie Valliant, I take after Jefferson Smith, I take after Dorothy Gale, I take after Skeptics) and that according to DHS and Cass Sunstien that makes me a serious risk, including a risk of violence.

Cass R. Sunstein: (Information/Regulation Czar) Head of the White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs an office of the United States Government that Congress established in the 1980 Paperwork Reduction Act.

He taught for 27 years at the University of Chicago Law School where he continues to teach as a visiting Professor. He is currently Professor of Law at Harvard Law School, Specializing in the fields of constitutional law, administrative law, environmental law, and law and behavioral economics.

Cass Sunstein wants to regulate information but his approach seems a little over the top for a position that was created to minimize paperwork.

Conspiracy Theories by Cass R. Sunstein

(Controlling the Dangerous Stupid)

In Which Sunstein proposes Cognitive Infiltration Teams will secretly Infiltrate, Create Cognitive Dissonance, Counterspeech and countermisinformation in the Groups, Actions and Minds of those citizens in America that are Conspiracy Theory Holders and that thus Dangerous to National Security and Public Safety.

I want to Believe… that this is Not True…But I can’t.

I want to think that I am a Conspiracy Theorist and this is not Kick you in the teeth to the Prison Camp Big Brother’s Office of Information Regulation, Doublethink, Newspeak, Blank-Out of a Brave New World attacking US Private Investigation and Free Speech.

I want to think that it can’t happen Here in My Republic of the United States of America, but I know that it has.

I don’t want to believe…but I have to, that MY government is operating illegal secret counter intelligence agents and organizations to undermine and against non-violent law-abiding citizens. (however misguided we may be)

This has happened to the degree and extent that the Federal Government have Hired and Fund 1000’s of ‘activist writers’ or Cognitive Infiltration Teams;

  • To Insert the ‘Official Government’ Conspiracy Theories
    • (examples 9/11 Commission Report, IRAN CONTRA Report)

or

  • Lack of Conspiracies and Official Government Report
    • (examples Warren Commission Report individual, Gulf of Tonkin Report unintentional errors)
  • Target Individuals for Cognitive Infiltration
  • Co-opting of Personal Conspiracy Theory Research Groups
  • Prevent Conspiracy Theory Research Groups from ‘Polarizing’ by Employing Counterspeech and countermisinformation
  • Discredit/Disrupt Identified ‘Extreme’ Conspiracy Theory Research Groups/Sites

 

These Personal Conspiracy Theory Research Groups are Performing Legal Private Investigations into Government Actions and into the Government Reach.

They are attempting to Research and Investigate Government functions, some of which are secret and ‘black opted’ even to Congressional Oversight. (Governless Government Action)

The Personal Conspiracy Theory Research Groups Search (For No Pay Solely as Concerned Citizens) through the over million pages of Federal Government Law and how they are applied as well as the limited Millions of upon millions of the Billions upon quadrillions of government pages and documents that they have been given access to.

There is an Open effort of Secret Government Infiltration into the lives, thoughts, research and conclusions of these Personal Private Individual Citizen Investigators. These Citizens are being secretly and strategically tracked, databased, targeted and the effect of their personal conclusions minimized by Secret Cognitive Infiltration Teams.

I don’t want to believe that they might register (or even be considering the registration) as Domestic Enemy Belligerents all those that believe in this Large Scale Invasion of a Big Brother Secret Government Spy Operation and Peacefully but with Belligerent Anger, protest the offence against Nature in our Government’s Actions.

I don’t want to believe that but I have read the Proposed Bill, I know that it is real.

The Enemy Belligerent Interrogation Detention and Prosecution Act of 2010

The Government Sunstien’s Take

Hundred of  millions of people hold Conspiracy Theories and Engage in Conspiracy Theory Investigations; they believe that powerful people have worked together in order to withhold the truth about some of their illegal practices or some terrible event they may have been party to.

A recent example is the belief, widespread in some parts of the world, that the attacks of 9/11 (three buildings brought down at freefall speed with two airplanes ‘three stones w/ two birds’) were carried out not by recently trained Al Qaeda cessna experienced ‘pilots’, but instead carried out or allowed to happen, by powerful Elite within the Global power structure Including UK, Canada, Israel and the United States.

In August 2004, a poll by Zogby International showed that 49 percent of New York City residents, with a margin of error of 3.5 percent, believed that officials of the U.S. government “knew in advance that attacks were planned on or around September 11, 2001, and that they consciously failed to act.”

In a Scripps-Howard Poll in 2006, with an error margin of 4 percent, some 36 percent of respondents assented to the claim that “federal officials either participated in the attacks on the World Trade Center or took no action to stop them.”

16 percent said that it was either very likely or somewhat likely that “the collapse of the twin towers in New York was aided by explosives secretly planted in the two buildings.

(The Third Building was not included the questionnaire)

(We 16%, we 36% or we 49% are all stupid, close minded and unscientific, Got it Cass)

Those who subscribe to conspiracy theories investigations may create serious risks, including risks of violence, and the existence of such theories raises significant challenges for Federal or Global policy and law.

(We are stupid and are dangerous)

The first challenge is to understand the mechanisms by which conspiracy theories investigations prosper

The second challenge is to understand how such theories might be undermined.

Such theories typically spread as a result of identifiable cognitive blunders, operating in conjunction with informational and reputational influences. A distinctive feature of conspiracy theories investigations is their self-sealing quality.

Conspiracy theorists are not likely to be persuaded by an attempt to dispel their theories they may even characterize that very attempt as further proof of the conspiracy. Because those who hold conspiracy theories investigations typically suffer from a “crippled epistemology,” (where the government/corporation could do any wrong) in accordance with which it is rational to hold such theories, the best response consists in cognitive infiltration of extremist groups. Various policy dilemmas, such as the question whether it is better for government to rebut conspiracy theories investigations or to ignore them, are explored in this light.

  1. I.                    Definitions and Mechanisms
    1. A.     Definitional Notes

 

There has been much discussion of what, exactly, counts as a conspiracy theory investigations, and about what, if anything, is wrong with those who hold one.11 Of course it would be valuable to specify necessary and sufficient conditions for such theories, in a way that would make it possible to make relevant distinctions. We bracket the most difficult questions here and suggest more intuitively that a conspiracy theory investigation can generally be counted as such if it is

an effort to explain some event or practice by reference to the machinations of powerful people, who have also managed to conceal their role.’

This account seems to capture the essence of the most prominent and influential conspiracy theories.

Consider, for example, the dangerous Conspiracy Theory views that the need to have Cognitive Infiltration Team Tracking and Man Power Allocation.

  • Central Intelligence Agency (or more than one lone ex-military agent) was responsible for the assassination of President John F. Kennedy;
  • Doctors deliberately manufactured (or unintentionally introduced) the AIDS virus to the human population
  • 1996 crash of TWA flight 800 was caused by a U.S. military missile
  • The theory of global warming is a deliberate fraud for Globalist IMF SDR controls under UN carbon regulation that will not limit Real Corporate Pollution and Fraud.
  • The Trilateral Commission is responsible for influencing important movements of the international economy such as carbon trading as well as Treaties and Trade with a Blind Eye to the Action still within Red Communist China
  • Martin Luther King, Jr., was killed by federal agents that were spying on him
  • The plane crash that killed Democrat Paul Wellstone was engineered by Republican politicians;
  • The moon landing was staged and never actually occurred.12

 

Of course some conspiracy theories, under our definition, have turned out to be true.

  • The Watergate hotel room used by Democratic National Committee was, in fact, bugged by Republican officials, operating at the behest of the White House.
  • In the 1950s, the Central Intelligence Agency did, in fact, administer LSD and related drugs under Project MKULTRA, in an effort to investigate the possibility of “mind control” or cognitive disruption control.
  • Between 1932 and 1972 in Tuskegee, Alabama, The Tuskegee syphilis experiment was conducted by the U.S. Public Health Service, to study the natural progression of untreated syphilis that was given to unwitting ‘negro’ patients.
  • Operation Northwoods, a rumored plan by the Department of Defense to simulate acts of terrorism (Via Hijack planes flown into buildings or blown up over major cities, bombings, shootings, government infiltration, etc.) and blamed on Cuba to rally support for an unpopular act of War with Cuba, really was proposed by high-level officials to the Kennedys (though the plan never went into effect at the time)
  • Government COINTELPRO operated without warrant and oversight throughout the 1950’s, 1960’s 1970’s to gather intelligence, infiltrate and destroy the civil rights movement (including MLK), the Anti-War Peaceniks and Anti Federal Government Organizations (Peaceful and Violent, Lawful and Criminal Alike).
  • Iran-Contra was an illegal weapons; for cash, for oil, for drugs, for illegal foreign political action, US Government operation.
  • Fluoride, uranium, radium, lead, aluminum, mercury, BPA and other toxins are knowingly added to public municipal drinking water supplies throughout the Nation under Federal Water Treatment systems, guidelines and requirements. This continued fluoridation is against new recommendations of ADA; which now recognizes ingested fluoride as a deadly harmful toxic poison with no beneficial results and recommends only topical application for Fluoride use.
  • The Government has implemented a biometric, full history, threat fusion database system through the New DHS for a national ID registry, as proposed under the Conspiracy Theory of the National ID act in the 1990’s.
  • Etc.

Remember…”We bracket the most difficult questions” what is not possible with this tract record?

Had the Small Government COINTELPRO Machine of the Watergate “Conspiracy Theory” Era been as effective as they are today; with total digital call recoding, total email, text, cell location tracking, web activity, license plate cams, face scans, financial transaction activity, x-ray bio-scan cams and total e-data collection within our modern Black Boxed Federal SMART GRID, ADAMS, DHS, NSA Fusion System of today; would we have had Nixon for another Term?

The government is really sending out secret Spies against anyone that says the government is sending out Secret Spies.

-sovereignthink on that

Our focus throughout is on false conspiracy theories, not true ones. Our ultimate goal is to explore how public officials might undermine such theories, and as a general rule, true accounts should not be undermined.

  1. Ignore, rebut or Countermisinformation?

 

The first dilemma is that either ignoring or rebutting conspiracy theory investigations has distinctive costs.

1. Ignoring the theory allows its proponents to draw ominous inferences from the government’s silence.

2. If the theory stands unrebutted, one possibility is that it is too ludicrous to need rebuttal, but another is that the government cannot offer relevant evidence to the contrary; the suppliers of the conspiracy theories investigations will propose the second inference.

3. On this view, all misinformation (the initial conspiracy theory investigations) should be met with countermisinformation. (Two Mistakes Make the Best Counterspeech Truth)
