Christopher Hitchens
“I can see why people find him [Hugo Chávez] charming. He's very ebullient, as they say. I've heard him make a speech, though, and he has a vice that's always very well worth noticing because it's always a bad sign: he doesn't know when to sit down. He's worse than Castro was. He won't shut up. Then he told me that he didn't think the United States landed on the moon and didn't believe in the existence of Osama bin Laden. He thought all of this was all a put-up job. He's a wacko.”
Christopher Hitchens

Noam Chomsky
“Most schooling is training for stupidity and conformity, and that's institutional, but occasionally you get a spark, somebody'll challenge your mind, make you think and so on, and that has a tremendous effect you just reach all sorts of people. Of course if you do it you may very have problems, you have to tread the narrow line. There are plenty of people who don't want students to think, they're afraid of the crisis of democracy. If people start thinking you get all these problems that I quoted before. They won't have enough humility to submit to a civil rule or they'll start trying to press their demands in the political arena and have ideas of their own, instead of beleiving what they're told. And privelage and power typically doesn't want that and so they react and the high school teacher that tries to get students to think may find oppression, firing and so on.”
Noam Chomsky

“Indeed, to this day, I think if you blame everything on the government, you're not just wrong, you're being reckless. It's as silly as blaming everything on the Freemasons, or the Illuminati, or insert-bad-guy-here. But I do believe that someone must ask the hard questions, especially of our elected officials as well as powerful men who become members of so-called secret societies. Remember: Governments don't lie. People lie. And if you want the real story, you need to find out more about those people.”

Peter J. Carroll
“Conspiracy theory, like causality, works fantastically well as an explanatory model but only if you use it backwards. The fact that we cannot predict much about tomorrow strongly indicates that most of the explanations we develop about how something happened yesterday have (like history in general) a high bullshit content.”
Peter J. Carroll, Psybermagick: Advanced Ideas in Chaos Magick

“Conspiracy theories are the refuge of the disempowered.”
Roger Cohen

Rebecca McNutt
“People who mock incidents in history such as 9/11 or the Holocaust, referring to it all as a hoax or stirring up crazy conspiracy theories about it, should really stop and think about their words first, both because it shows flaws in logic and rationality to deny the obvious, and because to play pretend with incidents which killed innocent people, well, that's just like laughing in the face of tragedy. It's as if to say, "no, it's not horrible enough that these people were killed, oh no, we have to drag on these incidents by indulging in melodramatic fantasies!" In essence this means that those who lost loved ones not only have to live with these losses forever, they also have to live with the people who deny that any of it ever happened. It does no good to forget history or to deny it. All it does is desensitize people; it tells them that it's all just a game, which then risks the possibility of nobody taking it seriously enough to prevent something similar from happening again.”

“A Conspiracy Theory that took hold was introduced by Anthony “Tony” Summers, the respected author of The Kennedy Conspiracy, published in 1980 and again in 1998 as “Not in Your Lifetime.” He believes that anti-Castro activists, funded by Mafia mobsters who had been ousted from Cuba, killed Kennedy. Summers believes that members of the CIA took part in this conspiracy and named the people he suspected. Summers also stated in an article published in the National Enquirer magazine, on October 25, 2013, that Lee Harvey Oswald didn’t act alone. The National Enquirer stated that Herminio Diaz, born in Cuba in 1923, had, in 1948, shot Pipi Hernandez, who was a Dominican exile employed at the naval base at Guantanamo. This killing took place at the Cuban Consulate in Mexico. In 1957, he was involved with an assassination attempt against President José Figueres of Costa Rica, who incidentally was a trained Army Ranger and a graduate of the United States Military Academy at West Point.

According to JFKFacts published on May 27, 2014, General Fabián Escalante, the historian of Cuban State Security and Castro’s former bodyguard, said that the assassin Herminio Diaz, along with Eladio del Valle and three American mobsters: Richard Gaines, Lenny Patrick, and Dave Yara, were the shooters at Dealey Plaza.”

“We've seen it over and over throughout history, it isn't a conspiracy theory anymore that the truly great ones get taken out. That's a trend, but when will people realize that after new world order, worldwide communism will take place.”

“In the end, one detail is unarguable: There will always be those searching for treasure. Never forget: We are a country founded on legends and myths. We love them, especially legends of treasure. Looking for treasure isn't just part of being an American, it is America.”

“They only let us live in millions for the sake of the economy. I don't know what will happen by the time they figure out how to run the economy without the people”

“You see, it doesn't matter if they're wrong. From 9/11 to recent shootings here in the United States, there's nothing more dangerous than a true believer on his own crazy mission.”

E.A. Bucchianeri
“... the reader is probably wondering that if Tolkien did indeed fashion two of his heroic characters from Catholic prophecies, what about the evil protagonists? Were any of them inspired by these little-known revelations concerning future times? The answer is yes, but to discover the links between the myth and the prophecies, we must venture not only into the realm of unnerving revelations, but also into the murky world of secret sects, dark plots, occult signs, bloody revolutions and conspiracy theories ~ we must probe deep into the burning Eye of Sauron.”

Donald Jeffries
“We stand today on the brink of economic destruction. The housing
market remains stagnant. Unemployment is obviously far higher than
the officially reported figures of 6 to 7 percent, which factor in only those
filing for unemployment benefits. As I was completing this book, there
were alarming reports disseminated by the media that a hundred million
Americans of working age were without jobs. This amounts to a staggering
true unemployment rate of 36.3 percent. While some of those are willfully
unemployed, such as stay-at-home parents, retirees, and high school students,
there is no question that the real rate must still be at least somewhere in the

25-percent range. Student loan debt is quickly surpassing credit card debt
in volume. The cost of living continues to surge, while the vast majority of
American workers receive little or no yearly wage increase. Our industry has
practically left our shores, leaving us incapable of manufacturing anything of
substance. Although the US population increased by 10 percent during the
first decade of the twenty-first century, 5,500,000 manufacturing jobs were lost
during the same time period. The sad reality is America doesn’t make much of
anything anymore. The income disparity has grown to such an extent that the
richest four hundred citizens presently possess more aggregate wealth than
the bottom fifty percent of all Americans combined. If present trends continue,
the United States is rapidly on the way to Third World nation status.”

“...this cryptic game of hide-and-seek is what makes it one of the greatest historical mysteries. So many of the symbols can be interpreted in so many different ways, there's always the possibility that all we're really looking at is a blank slate onto which anything can be read.”

“The FBI has stated that the investigation relating to Kennedy’s assassination is officially closed. The government’s position still stands behind the Warren Commission’s finding, maintaining that Oswald acted alone. The book “Reclaiming History” was published in 2007 by Vincent Bugliosi, an American attorney and New York Times bestselling author. He wrote 1,632 pages that categorically attempt to debunk the conspiracy theories, however human nature will most likely prevail and these theories will probably continue. In addition, there are still findings of relevance that are surfacing. Although there is a smoking gun suggesting a cover-up, no details have appeared with enough definitive evidence to prove that a conspiracy took place. Was the Castro régime involved or was it the anti-Castro faction in South Florida? These questions are still open but may be answered when President Trump releases the final files presently held by the government. Fifty years after the assassination the World may finally learn the truth… or not!”

“An internet minute is the apparent nanosecond it takes for a breaking news story to be dubbed fake and/or a conspiracy on social media.”
Stewart Stafford

Karl R. Popper
“The 'conspiracy theory of society' is a typical result of a secularization of a religious superstition. The belief in the Homeric gods whose conspiracies explain the history of the Trojan War is gone. The gods are abandoned. But their place is filled by powerful men or groups - sinister pressure groups whose wickedness is responsible for all the evils we suffer from - such as the Learned Elders of Zion, or the monopolists, or the capitalists, or the imperialists.”
Karl R. Popper

“There's a big overlap between conspiracy theorists, racists, gun nuts, doomsday preppers, fans of the rapture and poor white Republicans. They all have one thing in common: They feel like the oppressed underdogs.”

“I detected a relish in their application of little details, the brushstrokes being added to their work of art as it progressed from a simple line drawing to an ornately decorated and multi-layered, palimpsest painting.”

“عرفت أن الحروب والثورات التي تعصف بحياتنا والفوضى التي تسيطر على عالمنا ليست جميعا - دونما أي سبب آخر - سوى نتائج مؤامرة شيطانية مستمرة . وهذه المؤامرة بدأت في ذلك الجزء من الكون الذي ندعوه " الفردوس " حين تحدى الشيطان الحق الإلهي في أن تكون كلمة الله هي العليا . وقد أخبرتنا الكتب المقدسة كيف انتقلت المؤامرة الشيطانية من جنات عدن إلى عالمنا الأرضي . وكانت الحقائق والبديهيات المتناثرة التي عثرت عليها في كل أرجاء العالم متقطعة الحلقات لا يمكن تنسيقها . واستمر ذلك حتى وصلت إلى الحقيقة وأدركت أن معركتنا ليست مع مخلوقات عادية من لحم ودم ، بل مع القوى الروحية والفكرية التي تعمل في الظلام وتسيطر على معظم هؤلاء الذين يشغلون المراكز العليا في العالم بأسره .”

“ويستدعي هذا المخطط الذي رسمه وايزهاوبت تدمير جميع الحكومات والأديان الموجودة . ويتم الوصول إلى هذا الهدف عن طريق تقسيم الشعوب ، التي سماها الجوييم ( لفظ بمعنى القطعان البشرية يطلقه اليهود على البشر من الأديان الأخرى ) إلى معسكرات متنابذة تتصارع إلى الأبد حول عدد من المشاكل التي تتولد دونما توقف ، اقتصادية وسياسية وعنصرية واجتماعية وغيرها . ويقتضي المخطط تسليح هذه المعسكرات بعد خلقها ، ثم يجري تدبير " حادث " في كل فترة يكون من شأنه أن تنقض هذه المعسكرات على بعضها البعض فتضعف نفسها محطمة الحكومات الوطنية والمؤسسات الدينية .”
