Beautifully put (and a lovely voice)

It's conspiracy facts not theories. We are conspiracy realists not conspiracy theorists. If you don't accept simple conspiracy facts like the government is killing people off with mainstream/fake medicine then you are in denial of reality and believe in fairy tales.

Atheism is self refuting irrational anti skeptical anti science lunacy.

cognitive dissonance maybe

Thank you. I am an RN who HAS utilized a ND and acupuncture…appropriately as a positive adjunct to medicine. The saddest case that still haunts me is a beautiful woman who self-treated her easily-treatable Stage I or II breast cancer with essential oils and weed. The fabulous Oncologist I worked with was so sad that she refused treatment, but respected her decision and continued to gently educate. Ya know doctors and nurses cry too. After one year and many hospitalizations later she finally died on my night shift after a long, ugly struggle. I cried along with her lovely family. Haunts me to this day…and medical people don't care and aim to kill you right???

So what about the 911 conspiracy theory and the overwhelming evidence that contradicts the official narrative?

Peter Filipovic May 10, 2019 - 4:45 am

Funny how this guy criticizes homeopathy but never criticizes much more harmful pseudosciences such as biological psychiatry which leads to kids being forced to take brain damaging drugs like ritalin

I occasionally think I must have been lucky not to have fallen into any of these psychological traps. I'd prefer to think that I am smart or that the facts are as plain as the reality around me, but maybe, it's just that I wasn't happened upon by the wrong happenstance at a weak moment.
Sobering thought.

Wow… I was quite taken aback by the statements you produced in your video!

First, I don't know who coined the term "conspiracy theory" but rest assured that most individuals I discuss with in the circles of "alternative information" (an expression I would rather use) actually dislike and mock it.
First, obviously they are not theories in the scientific sense, but hypothesis and speculations.
My guess is that the word "theory" was adopted in that locution because it's very common for anyone to express a thought (regardless of the topic) by saying "my theory is that…" when it should be "I speculate that…".
Then, to use the word conspiracy is very reductive, as seeking alternative information cannot be summed up by simply unearthing literal conspiracies.
But if we want to dwell on that specific word, well of course conspiracies exist, it's not just an entry in our dictionaries that reflects an abstract concept.
Yet because of the very definition of said word, a conspiracy will be difficult to detect and quantify.

Another point, regarding the idea of rejecting others (including friends and family) because of the so-called "conspiracy theories" one may hold, I have often witnessed that the rejection does not come from the subject but rather from his environment.
I have never imposed my views on anyone but I noticed years ago that if I dared to publicly express them, they would be met with ignorant, uninformed and far too often contemptuous comments, directly followed by character assassination.
Of course, since then I've been very careful with whom I share my thoughts on such matters.
So whatever the majority's personal belief-system may be, it is indeed perceived as an aggression when the latter is challenged, whether rightfully or wrongfully.
Hence, I would point out the ostracism tends to come from the majority that adopts the accepted world-view, not the other way around and has been so throughout history.

So yes, I do have a "deeper belief that constitutes a significant part of my world-view" as you say, it is that power works hard to maintain its status and it will use its superior means to do so.
I have been naive enough to believe for too long that the general population understood that extremely basic principle, but apparently there's some kind of cognitive dissonance going on there!…
In conclusion, the interest one may have in these things is really about trying to understand how powerful people or entities model our perception of reality to keep and further their authority on the masses.
It's about investigating yet not believing what the first quack that comes around has to say, but perhaps to listen first and do a bit of research after to see if any of the elements he mentioned have a basis, even if you don't agree with his conclusions.
To look into the unknown is I find the greatest aspect of mankind and doing so means you have to speculate in order to verify what hypothesis is the most functional, still without considering it as an absolute truth.

I'm hoping we may be coming to an age of maturity and that we will be able to truly think critically, instead of pretending we do so by simply adopting yet another dogma.

I think that was a little overwrought. I guess if you are meaning "conspiracy theory" as a stand in for 'certain religions' or something similar, then sure, maybe, but still a little overdramatic. If you actually are talking about conspiracy theories in general, then you can take it down a few notches. A huge portion of the world believes in one type of conspiracy theory or another. The worst that happens is they spend a few dollars on some crystals which they swear cured their headache or they bore everybody at a party with the story of how the skull and bones secretly run the world, but other than that they live normal lives. What the US government alone is on public record as having pulled off should give anyone pause before dismissing a conspiracy theory out of hand. Don't stigmatize too much the yelling of 'wolf', lest we overlook a pack in our midst.

A bad one is the 9/11 conspiracy theories.

I have three problems with modern medicine, none of which were covered in your video:
1: the for-profit model, turning healthcare into sick care, with more treatments than single-shot cures.
2: the broken patent system, keeping generic medications out of the hands of the poor for decades.
3: the laundry list of side effects most medications have, the forgotten ethic to do no harm.

i see below another endorsement from a satanist, as in satan, the father of lies. that should give you a clue as to the kind of fools who believe your mainstream pseudoscientific nonsense.

Drew, this video is just wow! It must be shared all over the entire World!

Ben Lundquist May 10, 2019 - 4:45 am

Drew, you didn't say anything that I disagreed with, but if two people make a decision on a course of action THAT'S a conspiracy. We could believe their course of action was for the best or for harm. They still conspired to achieve a result they thought beneficial to themselves.
When my beloved President Kennedy was murdered in Dallas too many outrageously coincidental circumstances happened miraculously to obfuscate the truth. One thing is clear to me, Lee Harvey Oswald had nothing to do with it…he was a patsy…start to finish.
On 9-11 three steel re-enforced buildings collapsed at FREE FALL speeds into big piles of dust. Funny how the steel was coincidentally compromised to offer ZERO resistance to gravity. I don't know about your core beliefs Drew but someone is feeding us a pile of steaming hot malarkey…and…as long as we've got Twitter and YouTube no one cares…we’re just a bunch of conspiracy theorists.

Another well made, well thought out, researched, and well stated video. You should have a hundred times as many subscribers.

I don't know if anyone pointed this out to you, but there is a big difference between Nathropathy and Homeopothy. Your discription of Nathropathy is actually Homeopothy.
