I was talking to a low-level (local in medium sized city) elected official who said that about 60% of the calls to his office have to do with the UN taking our guns, 9/11 being an inside job, chemtrails, fluoride in the water, vaccines causing autism, global warming being a hoax invented by Al Gore to sell hybrid cars, agenda 21, UFOs, the secret plot to foist Sharia Law upon our local farmers, etc. etc.

I really don't even know where to begin other than to just ask, with some genuine astonishment, how the gently caress we got so goddamned dumb. I have a hard time believing that our grandparents sat around worrying that a bunch of non-binding UN talking points about reducing carbon emissions amounted to a secret plot to take our guns.

Have we always been this stupid or has the internet just weaponized stupid people? Do we come back from this? I would like to think that national dipshittery is a self-correcting mechanism like predator/prey ratios but I just don't know.

This is patently loving retarded. Was crashing a plane into the middle of the forest in PA also part of their GRAND MASTER PLAN?

They could execute the conspiracy so well that for all these years nobody has talked but they couldn't even do something with that plane other than hit some danged trees?

I think if you believe in conspiracies you should get to vote twice. Once to elect the president, and once to elect the Double President.

Agreed. And there should be more stringent controls on speech and the press too.

OP is entirely correct.

Sandy Hook truthers should be forcibly put into an asylum.

You can't have the yin without the loving yang.

To score a strike in bowling, all of the pins need to be knocked down. After that they are reset and you get to go again.

Bullshit and idiocy have existed since the dawn of time. You can't check truth without something that is false. I feel like we keep trying to make rules for uncomfortable and unreasonable situations that we don't understand. Moving forward, these situations resolve themselves. It's how society and animals and whatnot survive, grow, move on, and get eaten by the next predator that comes along.

There's a bit of a self selection process at work here. Nobody gives a poo poo about city officials except for steel beam melting antivaxxers who are worried that chemtrails are dropping fluoride all over them.
