Story Spotlight

Want to debunk or dismiss points of view and theories that go against your own beliefs, but are just too under-informed and/or lazy to do it properly? No problem! You just simply have to label your adversary as a 'conspiracy theorist' and Voilà! That poor tinfoil-hatter will be seen as a kook faster than he can yell "Trilateral Commission."

Srsly though, we Grailers know that there are many stories and news which get covered in this site, and the fact that we link to them does *not* necessarily mean we endorse them or agree with them 100% of the time. TDG trusts in the intelligence of our members, yet we always remind them of our Caveat lector policy. We may end up agreeing to disagree, but that doesn't give us the right to belittle people of different opinions.

Yet the fact of the matter is that recently the term 'conspiracy theory' has been weaponized by mainstream media, or even websites aspiring to go mainstream, because it's easy to make fun of dissent than to give rational rebuttals.

Thus 'conspiracy theory' has turned into a blanket term in which EVERY dissenting or alternative thinking is piled up. So for example, if you have reasons to think genetically modified foods might not be as safe for consumption as the US Dept. of Health would have you believe, then by default you must also think all the governments in the world are controlled by shape-shifting Reptilians who used beam weapons and holograms of airplanes to take down the World Trade Center in 9/11, and are planning to deceive Humanity with a fake alien invasion designed to impose the New World OrderZOMGStartStockingUpTheBunker!!!

Maybe the way to stop this trend has to start with US in the alternative circles. We need to refrain of thinking that every. Single. Person! Who doesn't happen to agree with us is a complete fool or a brain-washed drone. There's a time for proselytizing, and there's a time when you need to move to better things.

Always remember: Those in power will NEVER admit that they were ever wrong about anything --they'll just quietly re-change their position hoping no-one ever noticed...
