Lies, lies and more lies. Honestly, I grew up in a family with high, respectable morals. You just do not lie. End of story. Mistakes may be made, but learn from them and move on. Therefore, with these values embedded in my mind, it is natural for me to believe rather than disbelieve. For the most part, on an individual basis, I still do. However, with the lies which have emerged from the Megaupload take-down, does the government really think the people of this country are that gullible? We must be as so much shit passes before our eyes.
There are a plethora of conspiracy theories out there which I have been reading. Many seem far-fetched to me. I am not prone to conspiracy theories, in fact, I often guffaw at them. But from the moment I saw the coverage begin on the Twin Towers nearly ten years ago, there were – and are – many items which did not – and still do not – make sense to me.
