An interesting corollary can be found in the world of corporate psychopaths. The book "Snakes In Suits" by Paul Babiak and Robert D. Hare illustrates how psychopaths that infiltrate the world of business often use this same tactic. When a powerful group threatens the psychopath's current position of power or prevents him from scaling up to the next position of power, the psychopath typically employs the divide and conquer strategy. Being pathological liars with no conscience whatsoever to impede them, the psychopath will start rumors or spread disinformation to plant seeds of doubt amongst the group members. Members of the group begin to distrust the other members. This distrust prevents the co-operation and open communication needed to deal with the real problem, the diabolical psychopath pulling their strings.
There are many different theories in the 9/11 truth movement. Some think tiny nuclear devices were used to demolish the buildings despite the complete lack of evidence for the expected radiation. Some think the planes used on 9/11 were actually holograms or were actually animations placed in the video tapes afterwards. Some think high-energy weapons were used to level the buildings. Some think advanced explosives were used to bring down the buildings. Others think the government was merely grossly incompetent. Each of these groups ends up mistrusting the other, sometimes even going so far as to accuse other groups of being mentally ill or agents of disinformation. If instead of speculating, we practice critical reasoning and concentrate on the available scientific evidence and many unanswered questions, we can all reach a common ground.
Despite the many differences between all the different 9/11 truth members there is one defining common ground. This common ground is the push for a new impartial international criminal investigation into 9/11. We need to put aside our differences, find our common ground and work hard to make it happen. The 9/11 truth movement is a source of massive unbridled power. Think of what we can do when this fierce unstoppable force is directed at a single target. That target is a new criminal investigation.
