  1. hey frank,
    genuine question here.
    I respect your views and the fact that you respect others have their own,
    so i feel confident in asking this question without offending you.
    Do you ever feel, when you say that a lot of people are “sheeple” because they’re all
    brainwashed into thinking that this is normal reality when you feel there’s some extreme
    machinations controlling everything… have you ever felt that the conspiracy theorists are
    “sheeple” in their own right? kind of brainwashing themselves into these conceived to be
    paranoid thoughts? You always reference “those in the conspiracy community” (not in your words exactly)
    and explain their beliefs in tune (sometimes with yours). I wonder if that’s the ying to the yang? If you get my drift?
    Can both sides be able to saturate their followers just like drones. drinking the kool aid on both fronts.
    I myself am too worried about my bills for anything, haha. Thanks for your time, frank, love the show!

  2. I look at it like “layers of an onion”. Say, 95% of people are satisfied with the explanations of the world around them, given to them by the media, government, academia, etc. So when, for example, they see strange, unnatural patterns of cloudlike formations in the sky, they ignore it – feeling that if anything were amiss, they would be told about it.

    Of the remaining 5%, say 95% of them are satisfied and limited to the “mainstream conspiracy” world of Alex Jones, Loose Change, We Are Change, etc. I believe this level is quite possibly managaed and maintained by the same forces who control the mass media.

    So then, you are left with 5% of the 5% who are not satisfied and go further… and there are yet more “managed” layers of explanations for things.

    I don’t know how many layers you have to go through before you get to a level that is “unmanaged”… I could very well still be at a “managed” level…

  3. i got you, i myself have severe trust issues and beliefs with a lot of issues in the world, and certain types.
    I like to give the benefit of the doubt, but I myself am not quick to jump on the bandwagon.
    My list of beliefs and dismissals are too varied to make just random examples of, so
    to each their own, right.
    I wonder if these issues of belief or trust are somewhat linked to childhood experiences, since
    a lot of things tend to be cyclical. thanks for your honest answer Frank.
