Alex Jones responds back against Glenn Beck after being called "crazy" and a "fascist":

Quote:
"Glenn Beck has basically taken my research... five years ago, he said everything I talked about was a lie," he said. "He's taken the stuff that I put out, that's true, re-worked it, re-engineered it, neoconned it and then rolled it out later so he's mad that I'm getting on hundreds of stations, he's mad that I'm getting attention." "I'm not here trying to be numero uno like Glenn Beck," Jones added. "I'm here trying to save our Bill of Rights and Constitution."

Here's video of him pretty much taking over another groups reasonable protest who are allowing multiple people to speak by yelling and ranting by himself into a megaphone. ]

So, this was a protest he was apparently "joining"?

If I had a problem with what those people were saying, and wanted to discredit their movement and neutralise their effect, I would send in this guy with a megaphone.

It's perfect really. They can't argue with him because he's saying the same things, and his effect is to make them all (himself included) look like maniacs and not rational human beings, thus making it much harder if not impossible to communicate their ideas to other rational human beings. Much more effective then sending someone in to argue counterpoint.


edit: aaaand if I wanted to do that on a national/international scale, I put this guy on CNN with a megaphone..

I actually figured him out when i realized he uses techniques he teaches about and accuses other people of , like "learned helplessness" and "cognitive dissonance" the latter which he accused David Icke of with the whole laying the truth out and then discrediting it with the whole "lizard people" thing.

The government is nothing like Burger King. BK is profitable and manages it's resources effectively, which is the polar opposite of government.

Yet, BK's profits are sinking.

the difference is burger king relies on the government to an extensive degree, while the government does not need burger king.

Burger King employs hundreds of thousands of people across the country, so I think they do need Burger King.

wait, i thought you were a big free market guy? dont you understand how it works?

without burger king the supply of quick and nasty yet cheap fast food would shrink, making the demand for other chains that serve similar food (lets say mcdonalds) in effect skyrocket, creating a void that would provide a huge incentive for mcdonalds to create new locations and employ hundreds of thousands of more workers than they did before, as well as pushing them into a higher tax bracket.

isnt it wonderful how basic capitalism helps to autopilot our economy?
