    Interesting choice of a topic.

    Getting unintelligent people to believe real crimes aren’t happening by using the word “conspiracy” is working less and less well by the year. Investigators have caught up.

    Smart people are too smart to be fooled by people who brand smartness to influence less intelligent people.

    It’s going to be a very interesting reckoning when it comes.

    This guest was such a gift. Thank you for getting him on the program. It was refreshing to hear from someone so grounded and well read and completely away from the whirlpool thought of mormonism that has distorted most of my life. Mormonism is a cult because it messed with my mind, took away my ability to judge clearly, and made me afraid of everything outside the church lest I be deceived by satan. I couldn’t trust anything, least of all me.
