Batshit conspiracy documentaries at TPL

The library should, can, and does stock krazy konspiracy documentaries. What have we got already?

  • Several 9/11 features, including the central conspiracy documentary Loose Change; 9/11 in Plane Site; 9/11: Blueprint for Truth/The Architecture of Destruction.

    (11′09″01 is down to one circulating copy and the Naudets’ 9/11 down to two, which I think is an issue)

  • The End of America by Naomi Wolf

  • The truly baffling Zeitgeist and Zeitgeist Addendum (the latter positing that world monetary policy amounts to slavery; a friend of mine on the Inside who is black agreed with that proposition)

I say again: The library should stock krazy konspiracy documentaries. You the library user must – must! – have access to the widest feasible range of facts and opinions. In case you disagree with my statement here, ask yourself whether or not Fahrenheit 9/11 constitutes a conspiracy documentary or if it is somehow different because somebody rich and famous directed it and you’ve heard of it before and possibly even seen it, perhaps on mainstream TV channels. The equalizing power of the library puts famous documentarians on an equal footing with obscure ones whether or not their films are true, factually correct, plausible, respectable, or not.

I don’t have a clue how to find new or recent documentaries of this genre as they come out, nor would I expend the limited capital of blue suggestion forms on them. But here’s a fun one I thought of that isn’t in the collection: Kurt & Courtney.
