I love September 11 conspiracy theories because they're so incredibly indepth and convincing - until you apply a modicum of logic to them. After Katrina, I don't know how anyone could believe the US Government could pull off such a complex conspiracy. However, my politics are so far to the left, all government is eviiiiiiiil!

haha - even in the face of GROSS incompetency on behalf of the government - some minds are still inclined to ascribe murky conspiracy and paranoia. But they make great stories.

Thanks for posting this - you've articulated some things I've been trying to grasp at in seeking to understand CTs and susceptibility to them.

thanks mr CS. But I think I've unwittingly taken on several of Hofstadter's ideas about con. theories, especially the pathological element (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Paranoid_Style_in_American_Politics).

I've been sneaking a few peaks at your D. Loon blog as well. Good stuff.
