The State Against The Republic

[font size=3]At the request of President François Hollande, the French Socialist Party has published a note on the international “conspiracy theorist" movement. His goal: to prepare new legislation prohibiting it to express itself. In the US, the September 11, 2001 coup established a "permanent state of emergency" (Patriot Act), launching a series of imperial wars. Gradually, the European elites have aligned with their counterparts across the Atlantic. Everywhere, people are worried about being abandoned by their States and they question their institutions. Seeking to retain power, the elites are now ready to use force to gag their opposition.[/font]

The President of the French Republic, François Hollande, has assimilated what he calls "conspiracy theories" to Nazism and called to prevent their dissemination on the Internet and social networks.

Thus he declared, on January 27, 2015 at the Shoah Memorial:

"{Anti-Semitism} maintains conspiracy theories that spread without limits. Conspiracy theories that have, in the past, led to the worst "...)" {The} answer is to realize that conspiracy theories are disseminated through the Internet and social networks. Moreover, we must remember that it is words that have in the past prepared extermination. We need to act at the European level, and even internationally, so that a legal framework can be defined, and so that Internet platforms that manage social networks are held to account and that sanctions be imposed for failure to enforce".


Several ministers also decried what they called conspiracy theorists as so many "fermenters of hate and disintegrators of society."

Knowing that President Hollande calls "conspiracy theory" the idea that States, whatever their regimes - including democracies - have a spontaneous tendency to act in their own interests and not in that of their constituents, we can conclude that he presented this confused amalgam to justify a possible censure of his opponents.

1. I have seen too many "conspiracy theories" revealed to be CONSPIRACY FACTS

 

in my own life:

Vietnam false flag attack to start the war
Nixon and Watergate
Reagan and Iran holding hostages until he was elected
Reagan and Iran/Contra
W, Powell, Rice lying us into war with Iraq
NSA and the massive Constitutional violations of all our rights

and those are just the more prominent, unrefutable ones.

So I hold that only a conspiracy theory that can be disproven by factual information from outside sources (such as the earth is flat) should be banned and treated with the contempt it deserves.

And those that can be proven, should never be labeled "theories".
