~ Ed. Though Jim Fitzer, an excellent investigative reporter, tip toes around FE and does not address any of the many, many holes in Roundball Earth theory, at least he’s speaking to FE Nation. Please encourage him to keep investigating. He wrote the Amazon banned book, “Nobody Died at Sandy Hook”.

According to University of Minnesota McKnight Professor Emeritus Jim Fetzer, despite a plethora of YouTube videos, the Flat Earthers have failed to substantiate their claim. According to Fetzer, there may in fact be a conspiracy behind the “flat earth” movement.
Fetzer, who studied philosophy at Princeton University and earned his PhD in the History and the Philosophy of Science, sees the emergence of the Flat Earth movement at this juncture in time as “most peculiar.”
“They are trying to bamboozle people,” declared Fetzer in a recent interview. “They are cleverly taking advantage of the fact that Americans are not well grounded in science.”
“If you can get the members of truth groups divided over an issue, you can create internal dissent which will devalue the issue they may be formed to consider, like 911 truth, like JFK truth,” stated Fetzer.
Fetzer raised concerns that the hidden hand of propagandist Cass Sunstein might be at play here. Sunstein is a legal scholar and college professor who for a couple of years was Administrator of the White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs in the Obama administration. In a 2008 paper, entitled “Conspiracy Theories,” which he co-authored with Adrian Vermeule, the authors openly proposed a program for government infiltration of truth groups (Sunstein called them “conspiracy theory groups”) for the purpose of sabotaging their efforts.
According to the authors: “The existence of both domestic and foreign conspiracy theories, we suggest, is no trivial matter, posing real risks to the government’s antiterrorism policies, whatever the latter may be.” After considering various alternatives, the authors propose that “the best response consists in cognitive infiltration of extremist groups.” The article repeatedly describes such groups as those who believe the US government had a hand in the events of September 11.
