9/11 truth links

. See also NineMSN story .

The story begins debunking a UFO story and then for no logical reason, uses the opportunity to take a cheap shot at the 9/11 Truth Movement:

But where UFOs were once the main source of paranoid fixations, it is now incidents like the 9/11 terror attacks that are the focus of such obsessions.

Clinical psychologist Anthony Gunn told ninemsn that while conspiracy theories about UFOs have decreased in recent years due to more frequent distribution of footage by NASA, the basic psychology behind the phenomenon remained strong.

"When a lot of people feel they are in a situation where they don't have much power, figuring out conspiracy theories gives them a sense of control," he said.

"It's a huge area, the whole conspiracy thing — it can also be fuelled by paranoia, which in turn can be fuelled by drugs or stress, but it usually comes back to power or control issues."

Mr Gunn attributed the behaviour to cognitive dissonance, where people who are forced to hold two conflicting beliefs re-correct one to alleviate the psychological pain.

... (blah, blah, blah) ...

"Coming back to conspiracy theories, people may have learnt that 9/11 didn't happen the way they suspect it.

... (blah, blah, blah) ...

Of course, Anthony Gunn would not consider 'paranoid' a belief in the existence of a world-wide Islamic terrorist network known as 'Al Qaeda' that is so diabolical and deadly that we must unquestioningly accept changes in our constitution, removal of basic democratic rights and civil liberties, the degrading searches that we undergo every time we board an airplane and the militarisation of our society such as what occurred during the 2007 APEC summit in Sydney.

The mountains of hard physical evidence upon which the case of the 9/11 Truth Movement is founded, of course, is never discussed by the Australian newsmedia.
