Skip to comments.Cass Sunstein: Infiltrate “Conspiracy Theorists” by “Conspiring Against Them!”
Posted on 01/15/2010 8:53:54 AM PST by Jenny Hatch
Cass Sunstein, a Harvard law professor, co-wrote an academic article entitled Conspiracy Theories: Causes and Cures, in which he argued that the government should stealthily infiltrate groups that pose alternative theories on historical events via chat rooms, online social networks, or even real-space groups and attempt to undermine those groups.

Conspiracy Theories by Cass Sunstein (PDF of Article)
The reason why is because it quickly outlines Sunsteins plan:
"Cass Sunstein, a Harvard law professor, co-wrote an academic article entitled "Conspiracy Theories: Causes and Cures," in which he argued that the government should stealthily infiltrate groups that pose alternative theories on historical events via "chat rooms, online social networks, or even real-space groups and attempt to undermine" those groups."
Then the commenters take over, a bunch of Libertarian types I would assume, and they all begin by dissociating themselves from any sort of conspiracy and then finish by debating each other about 9-11 truth.
Careful guys, Cass might be all over you like rash on a baby if you keep talking about 9-11 that way. The whole post becomes ironic farce when the comments are included for color.
But Cass Sunsteins ideas for "controlled demolition" of our ability for freedom of thought and freedom of expression are sobering considering his post in the Obama Administration.
Cass, as the queen of so called "Conspiracy Theories" many of which have, not surprisingly, proved to be true, come hang out at my blog where you will get to hear the mother load of debunking of the New World Order, as I have just joined the Freedomizer Radio Team as a weekly Radio Show Host! The Jenny Hatch Show will begin next tuesday!
As I have studied Patriot Literature for the past two decades, just about every prediction and logical connecting of the dots has played out almost as if Ezra Taft Benson had been a Prophet. While family and friends screamed "conspiracy therory" to me and I was dumped on by those who perceived me yelling about Population Agendas, the Fed, the evil of the United Nations, and the increasingly coercive power of the Medical Profession and Social Agencies it has almost felt like there was some sort of a "Plan" to take down the United States.
Oh Yeah, Cleon Skousens wrote it all out in his book The Naked Communist, and the plan was read into the Congressional Record in 1963, but only those cranks over at Free Republic ever seem to spend time talking about how far along this plan has come since the 60's.
With a Kenyan Marxist in the White House I think we can safely say the Conspiracy whackos were on to something...
EXTENSION OF REMARKS OF HON. A. S. HERLONG, JR. OF FLORIDA
IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
Thursday, January 10, 1963
Mr. HERLONG. Mr. Speaker, Mrs. Patricia Nordman of De Land, Fla., is an ardent and articulate opponent of communism, and until recently published the De Land Courier, which she dedicated to the purpose of alerting the public to the dangers of communism in America.
1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.
2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.
3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.
4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.
5. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites.
6. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination.
7. Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N.
8. Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev's promise in 1955 to settle the German question by free elections under supervision of the U.N.
9. Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the United States has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress.
10. Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N.
11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo.)
13. Do away with all loyalty oaths.
14. Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office.
15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.
16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.
17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers' associations. Put the party line in textbooks.
18. Gain control of all student newspapers.
19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.
21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.
22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to "eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms."
23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. "Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art."
24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them "censorship" and a violation of free speech and free press.
25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.
26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as "normal, natural, healthy."
27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with "social" religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a "religious crutch."
28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of "separation of church and state."
29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.
31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the "big picture." Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.
32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture--education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.
33. Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus.
34. Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.
35. Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.
36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.
37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business.
38. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand [or treat].
39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.
40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.
41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.
42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use ["]united force["] to solve economic, political or social problems.
43. Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government.
44. Internationalize the Panama Canal.
45. Repeal the Connally reservation so the United States cannot prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction [over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction] over nations and individuals alike.
God Bless the Internet, it is the hope for the future! And I would hope that if Cass Sunstein starts to move on his plan to infiltrate Patriot Groups and the Obama Administration attempts to shut down the internet that the American People will be ready to Revolt! At least those of us not doped up on psychiatric meds...
Man...I’d love to see one of our President’s papers from college. That would be...ya know...really cool!
Maybe they could start with Marxist faculty lunchrooms. I’ve heard a lot of whacked-out conspiracy talk there in my day.
What makes Cass Sunstein think the government hasn’t already been doing this for decades?
Just ask the UFOlogists...
I’ve always been a proponent of the theory that most conspiracy theories are floated by the PTBs to make people feel helpless against the PTBs.
In other words, the theory being pushed is the real conspiracy.
Cass Sunstein, much like the rest of this “administration”, is a menace.
This is just Hillary’s “Communication Stream of Conspiracy Commerce.”
I’m tellinya, there ain’t no “Obama Chicago Machine” because there ain’t no Obama.
It’s Clintons all the way down.
Hey Cass, we have already infiltrated your conspiracies and stand in YOUR WAY of Marxist domination!
We play the qame game as you do, step for step.
wow. fight conspiracies by making them come true.
Little brother has been watching them and worse yet, he’s learning.
is it just me, or did half-a-million Freepers just shoot on over to The Daily Kos to sign-up for phantom troll accounts??
We are familiar with these folks. We call them "trolls" and they provide some comic relief from time to time.
I don't think he wrote any. No one remembers reading anything he wrote. None of his contemporaries even remember him being at Columbia. This guy was "inserted" by helicopter. He was dropped in with a sack supposedly full of credentials which he asserts but refuses to show anyone.
“is it just me, or did half-a-million Freepers just shoot on over to The Daily Kos to sign-up for phantom troll accounts??”
Hey, if this is what Cass wants, we prob should be the ones to lead the charge...
PS Just so you know at the end of my post I talked about the American People “Revolting”. Not that I would EVER enourage anyone to take up arms against the government or anything violent. I’m just talking about Going Galt...
I noticed the article is dated January 2010 but surely this is not new news by any stretch of anyone's imagination.
Does this mean we’re going to start getting trolls on FR?
“Does this mean were going to start getting trolls on FR?”
What’s a troll?
