Infiltrate to Eliminate Paranoia

Cass Sunstein, the United States' "regulatory czar", co-authored a paper in 2008 entitled "Conspiracy Theories":That's from the abstract. From the body:
We suggest a role for government efforts, and agents, in introducing such diversity. Government agents (and their allies) might enter chat rooms, online social networks, or even real-space groups and attempt to undermine percolating conspiracy theories by raising doubts about their factual premises, causal logic or implications for political action.
If your epistemology
seems crippled
your federal facebook friends
will be tripled!
