Hi Arch

The actual paper is better than the article.

For many years I've presented that people need some form of filtering whereby they can test the validity of their thoughts and beliefs. To often people assume these are true or false based on their emotions. In other words their reasoning is, I believe it so it must be true or I don't believe it so it must be false.

In truth emotions aren't the best filter in testing the validity of our thoughts and beliefs.

In my opinion to many conspiracy theories are based on emotional reasoning.

The larger problem today is conspiracy is a primary tool in directing attention towards a desired goal. So a lot of conspiracy is directed and then fed info towards a desired goal.

As I presented who can the public trust?


thank you,dane
