At one time, I asked one of my professors, "What do you think of
these 'conspiracy theories'?" He looked at me, then said, "You
mean like the JFK assassination?" He then looked around, lowered
his voice, and added, "You know. I have a friend who insists that
Oswald didn't shoot Kennedy!"
Here's me, mock startled, responding to this "revelation" of the
professor: "No! You don't mean it!"
Delving into conspiracy theories is like finding out there is
(allegedly) another side of the moon that you've never seen. So
you get on a rocket ship, fly to the other side, and it begins to
dawn on you: "My God. There is so much!"
As Peter Dale Scott noted during a debate with Gerald Posner, "It
is so vast."
It is so vast. And here is some more to add:

AIDS: What the Government Isn't Telling You
by Lorraine Day, M.D.
In the preface, Dr. Day, who has worked as an orthopedic surgeon
and assistant professor at the University of California,
describes how she began to have the disheartening realization
that those above her in the chain of command had compromised
their principles. At one point she asked one of her superiors,
"But what do you want me to do? Sell my soul?" The response?
"Sooner or later everyone sells his soul." So much for so-called
Dr. Day charges that many of those in charge of combatting AIDS
have their own hidden agendas which keep them from dealing
effectively with the epidemic. Professionals routinely behave in
a "politically correct" way or else risk losing their jobs.
Dr. Day tried to work within the medical establishment. But when
she saw to what extent many "experts" were privately saying one
thing, then publicly saying another, she decided that the public
had a right to know the truth. So, she began to speak out. "I
made the decision to tell what I know for the safety of the
unsuspecting public; for the safety of my fellow health care
workers who are taking far greater risks than the government is
admitting, and for my children and the children of other
Our leaders "are playing a deadly game with our lives and the
lives of our children."
