Hello all, I am new to the site and wanted to get a gist of the majorities thoughts on the current 'fads' that are being promoted by the likes of Alex Jones, Stefan Molyneux, and some libertarians. More specifically, I am speaking of the following notions:
1. There is a group of secretive uber-rich men who are working toward a one world government, and monetary system, in order to take control of the whole world and put all of us into some kind of slavery.
2. Government is always bad, b/c power corrupts, and therefore we don't need it. What we need is unrestrained free market economics and that will fix everything. "I shouldn't have to pay for someone else's healthcare!"
3. All of the problems that are making America "fail" today are happening (or have happened) due to the infringement on (or straying away from) the Constitution of the United States (i.e. - unconstitutional mandates like the Federal Reserve).
I should note that I recently had a quite lengthy gun control debate with a Libertarian type on Facebook and toward the end of the debate he plugged his new website (http://wakefromthedream.wordpress.com/) while using arguments that sounded very similar to the ones above.
