Have you ever found yourself embroiled in an argument with a troofer over his or her latest passion? If so, you’ll know the sense of overwhelming futility that comes from whacking your head repeatedly against a brick wall of circular reasoning and confirmation bias.
It’s no fun, and those of us who’ve tried to engage (even politely and respectfully) with Hoaxtead believers run up against it time and time again. If we don’t believe two children were victims of a huge yet mysterious cult that raped, murdered, and cannibalised a ridiculous number of children and infants, and yet left absolutely no corroborating evidence behind…why, we’re obviously ‘paedo enablers’ or ‘shills’ or even ‘paedophiles’ ourselves!
One of our kind readers sent us a link to the following video, which might or might not actually convince a dedicated troofer to abandon his or her wacky ways..but it’s fun to watch, and also: Nazi dolphins!
If you’re wondering how to apply this in the context of Hoaxtead, how’s this: “Are children of the élites among those being raped, murdered, forced to kill babies, and cannibalised?” Er…yes.
(By the way, we’re not saying that no actual conspiracies exist: the government is mucking about with our freedom; corporations are trying to control our minds (or at least our purchasing and consumption habits); and the authorities are invading our lives in some very unpleasant ways. Just try getting onto an airplane sometime if you don’t believe that. So if your troofer friend is feeling at loose ends once you’ve convinced him or her that Hoaxtead is a crock, you can always suggest that they get involved in real activism and community-building for a change.)
