'Protocols of Zion'

I encourage everyone to check out director Marc Levin's take on 9/11 conspiracy theories and anti-semitism. He's got a pretty institutional view of conspiracy thinking--basically "you're paranoid, they couldn't organize or pull off something so big, things are complicated, you can't understand things for yourself."

I suggest we give him a lesson in rational thinking. Go comment on this blog:
