Cass Sunstein agrees conspiracy theorists should be silenced or disabled, "attempting to debias or disable its purveyors, to address the demand side by attempting to immunize third-party audiences from the theory’s effects, or to do both (if resource constraints permit)" he wrote.
Writes Cass in his article on how to deal with these conspiracy theorists,
Second, we suggest a distinctive tactic for breaking up the hard core of extremists who supply conspiracy theories: cognitive infiltration of extremist groups, whereby government agents or their allies (acting either virtually or in real space, and either openly or anonymously) will undermine the crippled epistemology of those who subscribe to such theories.... Perhaps only a handful of kooks believe that U.S. government officials had any kind of role in the events of 9/11... Government is faced with suppliers of conspiracy theories, and might aim at least in part to persuade, debias, or silence those suppliers.An article which appeared in Press TV, entitled, US muffling opposition voice by secretly liquidating dissidents: Analyst wrote one way to silence dissent is by death threats. Writes the article:
Philip Zelikow, the executive director of the 9/11 commission, says that “[t]he hardcore conspiracy theorists are totally committed. They’d have to repudiate much of their life identity in order not to accept some of that stuff. That’s not our worry. Our worry is when things become infectious . . . . [t]hen this stuff can be deeply corrosive to public understanding. You can get where the bacteria can sicken the larger body.”
One promising tactic is cognitive infiltration of extremist groups. By this we do not mean 1960s-style infiltration with a view to surveillance and collecting information, possibly for use in future prosecutions. Rather, we mean that government efforts might succeed in weakening or even breaking up the ideological and epistemological complexes that constitute these networks and groups.
We suggest a role for government efforts, and agents, in introducing such diversity. 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.
There is a similar trade off along another dimension: whether the infiltration should occur in the real world, through physical penetration of conspiracy groups by undercover agents, or instead should occur strictly in cyberspace. The latter is safer, but potentially less productive. The former will sometimes be indispensable, where the groups that purvey conspiracy theories (and perhaps themselves formulate conspiracies) formulate their views through real-space informational networks rather than virtual networks.... Once corrective information is introduced, large numbers of people can be shifted to different views.
Conspiracy theories flourish in many Middle Eastern and predominantly Muslim countries, so much so that there is a small literature asking why Muslims are so prone to conspiracy theorizing.
Some conspiracy theories create serious risks. They do not merely undermine democratic debate; in extreme cases, they create or fuel violence. If government can dispel such theories, it should do so. One problem is that its efforts might be counterproductive, because efforts to rebut conspiracy theories also legitimate them. We have suggested, however, that government can minimize this effect by rebutting more rather than fewer theories, by enlisting independent groups to supply rebuttals, and by cognitive infiltration designed to break up the crippled epistemology of conspiracy minded groups and informationally isolated social networks.
On June 13, Barrett added, Dr. James Fetzer, the founder of Scholars for 9/11 Truth, was scheduled to speak at the University Heights Community Center in Seattle, when the university received a threatening note that the gathering could be hit by “a bomb or fire bomb or maybe just gun fire.” As a result, university officials had to cancel Fetzer’s address.
“Death threats are one way to disable the purveyors of conspiracy theories. Actual assassinations are another,” he explained.
According to the analyst, there is a long list of people, who were trying to expose the truth of 9/11 and have met with untimely, suspicious deaths.
“Barry Jennings, the deputy director of Emergency Services Department for the New York City Housing Authority on 9/11, appears to have been murdered after speaking publicly about explosions he witnessed that partly demolished World Trade Center Building 7 on the morning of 9/11,” he said.
Barrett stated that another 9/11 truth advocate and eyewitness, Dr. David Graham of Shreveport, Louisiana, was murdered - apparently by the FBI - for writing a book about two of the alleged 9/11 hijackers, who were obvious intelligence assets controlled by people at Barksdale Air Force Base.
Bringing another example, the analyst said Mike Ruppert, the original leader of the 9/11 truth movement, had his office attacked by microwave and/or EMF (Electromagnetic Frequency) weapons after he began publishing critiques of the official story of 9/11.
He argued that the attacks may have contributed to Ruppert's poor health and distraught frame of mind, which led him to quit the 9/11 truth movement and temporarily flee the USA in 2006.
“Since we now know that a secret National Security committee is ordering the murder of American citizens, and since we know the CIA has the power to easily simulate deaths from illness and accident, we might as well assume that every time a dissident dies unexpectedly, he or she has been murdered by the US government,” Barrett said.
“A government that extra-judicially murders, disappears, and tortures its own citizens should clean up its own acts before it criticizes other nations. The US should heed former President Carter and start obeying its own Constitution if it wants to have any credibility on human rights,” he concluded.
Sean Stinn was a targeted individual who died of a heart attack. The American government goes after anyone who seeks to help or expose in any real way the "targeted" community who seek to expose the electromagnetic and energy weapons they use.
From the article, Biomedical Targeted Individual dies suddenly
"Our friend and TI (targeted individual), Sean Stinn, who was a victim of electronic harassment has passed," advised Kim Smith in a Facebook notice Saturday.
Stinn, 45, died unexpectedly on Sept. 5, reportedly of a heart attack.
Known as a bioengineer technical genius among the Targeted Individual community, Stinn fought to have evidence regarding electronic harassment used in court.
His father, a career army man, had also been targeted, according to Stinn.
Stinn was a regular Commenter under Deborah Dupré's articles, such as the article titled, "Obama's secret targeted individual killing program, ACLU lawsuit."
Stinn's roommate, Steve Wilson, also active in the Targeted Individual advocacy groups, advised on Wednesday about Sean's sudden death.

Conspiracy theorists are not the only ones on the target list. That a Jew should be at the forefront of disabling the rights of others is nothing more than a national disgrace. But we are not surprised since the king pins of Zionism are more interested in removing individual freedom than enhancing it.
Christians who peddle conspiracy theorists are just as likely to be targeted. The NSA have listening posts around the world, and their weapons allow remote control heart attacks (developed by the Russians). Getting rid of people today is too easy for them.
Targeted individual groups have successfully been closed down and prevented from having any real presence on the internet. This is part of a global plan to disable the truth from the masses of people. Conspiracy is in the Holy Bible and Quran does Cass recommend the banning of these books?
