Historical Revisionism and the Conspiratorial View of History
Though the ranks are thinning, there still exists today those who believe the official stories about the JFK assassination (40%) and the attacks on 9/11 (50%).
Despite great progress in rational, evidence-based discovery and the clear refutation of official false narratives promulgated by the US Government and its protectors surrounding JFK and 9/11, there is much less progress concerning other major historical events: great swaths of people still cling to many other historical myths too uncomfortable to question. Some of these myths are so dangerous 17 countries have found it necessary to fine or imprison any who may question official historical accounts. It seems certain areas of the historical record are off limits; so today’s history requires a law –in place of evidence– to protect questionable official assertions.
And to buttress our false history, logical fallacies are deployed; and the media and the education systems are joined together repeating these false accounts until they become truth by repetition. Questions are met with personal attacks: crazy, paranoid or the tried and true CIA weaponized term ‘Conspiracy Theory’ is dutifully deployed preventing any rational discussion of fact-based evidence.
Despite the great headway on these two high-profile topics (JFK & 9/11), there remain many more handicapped by the official stories of WWI, WWII, the Korean War, the Vietnam War and today’s War on Terrorism.
So how to provide the historically handicapped masses an ‘easy-ramp’ to discover the truth for themselves? For Vietnam, should we mention the Gulf of Tonkin attack that never happened; For WWII should we mention FDR had foreknowledge of the attack on Pearl Harbor? The official historical accounts of every major conflict in the 20th and 21st Centuries have been thoroughly disproved by sourced, documented evidence and require revision not based on crazy paranoid theories but based in fact.
