I dont think conspiracy theorist even applies anymore. The meaning of it has changed so much these days. It used to describe an insane like individual who believed in insane crazy theories that most of the time were false. But things have changed so much. We have been proven right so many times now and the perception by the public has changed in our favor.

We are critical thinkers who investigate conspiracy theories and share what we find.

Skeptics? which Shep would spell sceptic

Maybe Scrutinizers. That's a mouthful. We question authority.

I don't think we're cynics, though. That suggests a pessimistic attitude.

Yep. Thing is they look to us now when they start asking questions. I find myself dismissing some of the things they ask as preconceived idea's and have to walk them through what can be proven and what is based fully in theory. Its a task.

I don't like the "you need to do something" vibe of the vid.  I like the be a discerning human with information.

When being a 'conspiracy theorist' became mainstream I knew we were fucked.  

Them: "Yeah, 'they' control everything meh - what can you do.  Did you see the kardashians?" 

Me:  "Damn muddy waters!"

I was really surprised. Boy, you should have heard them all going off on Obama. lol Anyway, they are all on board about preparing and securing the neighborhood. They even had the same strategy to blocking entry streets into the neighborhood like I did. I guess I need to branch off and inform other neighbors around the area. One stepped up and volunteered his house as headquarters. I'm amped!
