“The tendency to occultism is a symptom of regression in consciousness.” – Theodore Adorno
From this page on 9/11 conspiracy theories (which I found on Digg, or something, I can’t remember):
I am therefore sure that the Bush gang, and all the real conspirators of Washington, are delighted at the obsessions of the 9/11 conspiracists. It’s a distraction from the 1,001 real plots of capitalism that demand exposure and political challenge. As Theodore Adorno wrote: “The tendency to occultism is a symptom of regression in consciousness”.
On a related note, a recent episode of South Park suggested that the Bush administration was responsible 9/11 conspiracy theories – because they want people to thin they really are capable and willing to carry out such a thing. Hmm.
