In this day and age of misdirection, manipulation and misinformation, a Truther must be careful not to easily fall victim to what’s referred to as a “Limited Hang out” or psyop, or an intentional psychological operation designed to lead the believer in a direction that discredits the other beliefs the Truther may hold, that may in fact true, and or to simply lead them astray. This has been documented in US history and is quite literally taken straight from Sun Tzu’s “The Art Of War” which is recognized as one of the foremost references in the psychology of warfare.
Yet in this same light one must be careful as well not to discount any line of thinking offhand for fear of falling victim to the rampant misdirection actively propagated by the establishment.
So when discussing a theory as jarring at flat earth, as we are today, you must approach it as we have advised you in the past to approach all topics, with an open mind, and simultaneously, a healthy skepticism. Yet if you choose to start this discussion already discounting the possibility of its validity, you will most likely fall safely back on the science that demonstrates its falsity, despite the fact that it is the very same science used to manipulate the populace on other beliefs that have since been proven valid, flying in the face of the so-called scientific proof. Now this does not mean that science is not to be trusted, but rather to demonstrate that scientists are human like anyone else and susceptible to infiltration and manipulation, by way of financial incentive or boosts to reputation and social status. A recent revelation from the editor in chief of the Lancet, the worlds leading scientific journal, revealed that around half of all scientific studies being produced today are in fact false. revealing that much of what we see today is essentially paid for by outside interests.
Once you have given the information its due consideration with an open mind, you then consider all you have seen and all you know about possible governmental manipulation of studies and public narratives, alongside the original scientific insights, and formulate your own personal belief.
When believing in any so-called conspiracy theory, one must accept that there is a certain level of collusion or manipulation by those in officials positions. So to believe in flat earth, you must first make peace with the fact that the theory essentially, indirectly, calls any and all governmental and independent bodies that work with or are related to space exploration, by telescope or actual travel, extreme land exploration, geo location services, map and globe production, and any number of associated fields, are all, to one degree or another, involved or at the very least, unknowingly producing false information. And that all astronomers, astrophysicists, rocket scientists and the like, are out of the job and or have been lying.
As extreme as this may sound, such long-term and extravagant efforts have taken place in this nation’s history, so today we are diving further in and we will make our conclusion together.
