  • Obama staffer wants ‘cognitive infiltration’ of 9/11 conspiracy groups
    and statistical programs according to the White House Web site Sunstein s article published in the Journal of Political Philosphy in 2008 and recently uncovered by blogger Marc Estrin states that our primary claim is that conspiracy theories typically stem not from irrationality or mental illness of any kind but from a crippled epistemology in the form of a sharply limited number of relevant informational sources By crippled epistemology Sunstein means that people who believe in conspiracy theories have a limited number of sources of information that they trust Therefore Sunstein argued in the article it would not work to simply refute the conspiracy theories in public the very sources that conspiracy theorists believe would have to be infiltrated Sunstein whose article focuses largely on the 9 11 conspiracy theories suggests that the government enlist nongovernmental officials in the effort to rebut the theories It might ensure that credible independent experts offer the rebuttal rather than government officials themselves There is a tradeoff between credibility and control however The price of credibility is that government cannot be seen to control the independent experts Download a PDF of the article here Sunstein argued that government might undertake legal tactics for breaking up the tight cognitive clusters of extremist theories He suggested that government agents and their allies might enter chat rooms online social networks or even real space groups and attempt to undermine percolating conspiracy theories by raising doubts about their factual premises causal logic or implications for political action We expect such tactics from undercover cops or FBI Estrin writes at the Rag Blog expressing surprise that a high level presidential advisor would support such a strategy Estrin notes that Sunstein advocates in his article for the infiltration of extremist groups so that it undermines the groups confidence to the

  • Undercover cops were among the unruly at DNC
    was the first deployment or whether the melee already was underway About 106 people were arrested during the incident that took place at 15th Street and Court Place Denver police have testified during court trials that they deployed officers to the area that night because they had gathered intelligence that anarchists had planned to gather in Civic Center Park then move toward the 16th Street Mall to wreak havoc at delegate hotels and other businesses during the DNC On Thursday the ACLU of Colorado sent a letter to Denver s Independent Monitor Richard Rosenthal asking for the Internal Affairs Bureau to conduct an investigation of the pepper spraying incident The actions of the undercover detectives on Aug 25 2008 may have had the effect of exacerbating an already tense situation as their feigned struggle led nearby officers and the public to believe that a commanding officer was being attacked by protesters and that the situation necessitated the use of chemical agents says the letter written by ACLU staff attorney Taylor Pendergrass Such actions may have escalated the overall situation by causing officers on the scene to fear that the protesters threatened their safety when in fact the struggle was only

  • Smile, Though Your Head Is Aching
    of character for the new speaker Pelosi s fixed and constant smile makes her appear as if she is cutting an ad for a whitening toothpaste But when you listen to the words that come from her grinning maw the smile seems more akin to that of a barracuda One reporter asked about Democratic lawmakers who proposed a tax increase for the war They were not making legislation they were making a point Pelosi judged Another asked about a Republican congressman s complaints that the word God was removed from certificates accompanying congressional flags I don t know what his point is Pelosi volleyed Complaints that she didn t go far enough on climate change legislation We did not say we were going to do any more than we did The Senate s stalemate on the war We in the House will not be confining our legislation initiatives to what is legislatively possible in the Senate Pelosi admitted no mistakes and claimed no regrets as she reflected on her first session in the speaker s chair I m very proud of the work of this Congress she declared Evidently so She repeated how proud she was nine times Passing the recommendations of the 9 11 commission made her very proud while energy legislation made her very very proud and new ethics rules made her especially proud What do you see as your greatest mistake asked one reporter Pelosi smiled Why don t you tell me she proposed She smiled again then laughed Cause I think we re doing just great She laughed again Even those approval ratings for Congress in the teens and 20s didn t evoke regrets I don t like the numbers for Congress she admitted but I m very pleased with the Democratic numbers She then took

  • History 'disappearing from schools'
    announced plans to create a new English Baccalaureate in an attempt to boost traditional subjects Under plans pupils who gain five good GCSEs in subjects such as history science and foreign languages will be awarded the new certificate to encourage more teenagers to studying them at an advanced level In the latest study the Historical Association found widespread evidence that history was being marginalised at all stages of secondary education Currently most schools teach history as a distinct subject in the first three years of secondary school before pupils choose their GCSE options at 14 But the report said growing numbers of schools were cutting the three year course by 12 months to find more space in the curriculum for other subjects and to give pupils extra time for GCSEs The proportion of secondaries cutting courses to just two years doubled from five to 10 per cent between 2009 and 2010 the annual survey found At the same time 31 per cent of schools merged history with geography to form humanities lessons in 2010 This compared with 28 per cent a year earlier In many cases these classes were used as a platform for pupils to develop generic thinking skills instead of improving their knowledge of the two subjects One teacher at a state comprehensive told researchers We are disappearing Integrated humanities is the way our senior management team wants to go and see us as awkward backward and obstacles if we suggest subjects like history are valuable in their own right In a further conclusion the study found that some schools were preventing 13 and 14 year olds from choosing history as one of their GCSEs Some 16 per cent of teachers reported some form of restriction on subject choices often making courses such as history out of bounds
