You kind of went off-topic there, into the details about Q and the Patriot movement. That wasn't my point.
Oh. Thought this was in the politics thread. My bad.
Once you get to a certain point, you just have to go with the most likely scenario, and forget about excusing each individual point.
Agree. One thing the modern world has going against it, is that the western education system puts an unqual and unnatural focus on teaching math/science. For the last 70 years, people have been educated in left-brain "problem solving" at the expense of, and loss of, a critical thinking, left-brain, big-picture mentality. This causes most people to look at an event with an overly-simplistic "cause-effect" thinking - the media provides a "cause" for an event, and the effect is subconsciously believed because of the pre-figured "motive" is part of movie/tv/historical propaganda. ...As was mentioned on another thread, compartmentalized thinking (i.e. western education) leads to the ability of evil people to get away with non-compartmentalized crimes.
Example: movies/tv often have very simplistic plots. Bad guy wants money and holds hostages to rob a bank. Good guy stops bad guy. End of story.
V2 example: The pope wanted to call a council to help the Church. Bad guys (liberals) organized to falsely interpret V2. Good guys (JPII and Pope Benedict) are fighting to help the Church accept the "true" V2 interpretation.
Most people buy this story (i.e. the "cause") because 1) they falsely believe the "cause" of the post-V2 problems being the liberals and not V2 itself. They believe this lie because a) human nature says you normally trust your superiors, and b) V2 and the global media continually push this lie.
Secondly, they believe the "motive" for the crime because many liberals are open about their wanting to change the Faith. So, this part is actually true.
Lastly, this overly-simplistic story for why the Church is in the position it's in is easily believed because people have been trained (i.e. propaganda) to believe in simple "cause-effect" scenarios. But most criminals and evil people don't think like this, because they know they'd get caught in an instant.
A true, clever crime has layers upon layers of misdirection so that the true "cause" is impossible to find. This is how the Conspiracy works. Person A talks to person B, C, D and E. Eventually, person X pays person Y to do a crime. What's the connection between Person A (who paid for the crime) and person Y (who performed the crime)? Almost no connection.
Certainly, the elites have corrupted the schools to the degree that most people couldn't even accept a deeply-twisted crime scenario as the above. Just as they can't accept the fact that Paul VI (and maybe John XXIII) and the liberal Cardinals conspired together to make V2 happen.
