Overview

Conscience of a Conspiracy Theorist by Robert Lockwood Mills

Conscience of a Conspiracy Theorist seeks to show how governmental deceit and (corporate-controlled) media silence have combined to keep the public misinformed about shocking events in American history. In the process, skeptics who question the "official accounts" are labeled "conspiracy theorists," a pejorative term that carries with it suggestions of foolishness and a lack of patriotism.

The book focuses on critical moments in American history, with particular focus on the Kennedy assassination, 9/11, and the 2000 and 2004 presidential elections. It exposes flaws in the conventional wisdom in each case, in a non-partisan manner that separates political ideology from an objective analysis of the facts.

The author's style is at once objective and academic, utilizing historical background information (often neglected by other historians and the media) to illuminate current circumstances. The book's primary value to readers and libraries lies in its willingness to go where other authors, most major publishers, and the mainstream media refuse to go . . . into direct criticism of government leaders and their cronies. The term "false-flag event" isn't well understood, but it has been a valuable tool for corrupt leaders and tyrants since the first century AD. Until the reader understands what a false-flag event is, he or she is incapable of recognizing the difference between a conspiracy theorist and an honest skeptic.
