News Flash — CIA Invents “CONSPIRACY THEORY” | Thrive by Foster Gamble

It is a little-known though well-documented fact that the origin of the campaign to ridicule research into conspiracies wasinitiated by the CIA in 1967 to undermine the credibility of those who questioned the official claims of the Warren Commission regarding the so-called facts of the Kennedy assassination.

Given the challenge we and others feel when speaking out about conspiracies, I think Lance deHaven-Smith is right when, in his new bookConspiracy Theory, he suggests “the CIA’s [covert and illegal] campaign to popularize the term ‘conspiracy theory’ and make conspiracy belief a target of ridicule and hostility must be credited…with being one of the most successful propaganda initiatives of all time…”

Of course not all proclaimed conspiracies are true. There are competent conspiracy analysts and incompetent ones, just as there are skilled and shoddy reporters, historians or practitioners of any discipline.

What Does “Conspiracy” Actually Mean?

The Merriam Webster dictionary defines “conspire”as: “to plot, to contrive, to scheme — to join in a secret agreement to do an unlawful or wrongful act.”

It is well documented that many conspiracy theories are true. (See resources below.)

A Message from Thrive Filmmaker, Foster Gamble…

Dear Thrive Movement,

Mainstream news sources are reporting that the Syrian government has used chemical weapons on its own citizens, killing hundreds.

But what if that’s not the true story?

What if this is another “false flag” operation – like Iraq – where the American government is using the excuse of chemical weapons to justify another war in the Middle East for its own benefit?

I’m afraid that is the case…you can find out more about what I think is really going on in Syria in my latest audio blog.

Millions of lives are on the line. Find out what’s really going on so that we can be effective in spreading the word and helping to avert this tragedy.

Please take a moment to listen to my blog, check out the resources and share what you learn with others.

Sincerely,

Foster Gamble and the THRIVE Team
