“Debunking sites.” are a large part of the psy-op factor – a way to keep us from leaving the herd and thinking our own thoughts about what we see and hear about us.
If such sites were genuine, they would not debunk this or that aspect of theory about the true behavior of our governmenht. They would debunk all of it. But they cannot. Mythbusters, SNOPES, Scientific American, Popular Mechanics, Penn and Teller have all been called into service of the government in debunking major conspiracy theories. But they are not really about debunking. They are about reassuring you. If they have to lie to reassure you, they will. If they have to use gimmicks and special effects, they will. They do.
The van in that scene was superimposed by video trickery, “PhotoShopped” in. You can tell by the black line, kind of a dark halo, around it. Mythbusters, who are fake, will latch on to enough real science to use as a lever to inject their fakery. In this case, they were “proving” that soft objects can destroy hard ones by mere speed. It does not happen, so they had a door blown off a van by other means and made it appear that a pumpkin did it. They had to fake it. So it goes. It was all done with a computer in a production studio. These are liars. And, I might add, liars with a large budget.
As an alternative, I propose that debunking sites and shows change their name: Instead of “debunking” they should be called “Stop Thinking, and I Mean Right Now!” sites, because that is their true effect. People become a little unnerved at this or that piece of evidence, and want reassurance that their government does not lie. So they Google, and sure enough the first thing that pops up is the debunking site. They read or skim it, are reassured, and stop wondering.
It is no accident. Google is about as genuine as SNOPES, which is to say it too tells believable lies. One of the lies is to make sure you get the information your government wants you to get on the first page. They want you to stop there and not explore further. Positioning of debunking sites on Google is not based on number of hits. It is a little more disingenuous, and more nuanced than that.
It is a form of propaganda, a way to prevent you from asking questions, thinking for yourself, wondering out loud, or exercising natural curiosity.
Debunking sites exist to assist you in turning off your brain, nothing more. They are just another form of thought control.
