“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 believers by planting doubts about the theories and stylized facts that circulate within such groups, thereby introducing beneficial cognitive diversity.”
-Cass R Sunstein, Administrator of the White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs in the Obama administration.
Holy shit. The conspiracy theorists were right about this being real.
