41. IMO, he's just an opportunist...

I don't totally ignore watching anything internet based with his"Prison Planet" stuff, as some of the World Banking schemes are based in truth. The problem with enterprises like Jones' show, is that his own business plan is dependent on selling some of these DVDs on "what happened with the WTC" without truly weighing in on what happened. IOW, you really get a lot of MIHOP when some are trying to decide LIHOP. To truly ask that question, one would have to read things called BOOKS.

The LIHOP questioners can be led to some of Jones' stuff regarding 9/11. Nothing wrong with that, as when you read many opinions on the internet, it's nothing but free information. From that standpoint, we're supposed to be able to decide if world governments lie to their citizens. Wow... what a concept! This startling recognition has been historically challenged throughout the history of war across the planet. People are lied to all the time. Therefore, you get people like Alex Jones, or long ago, Chuck Harder, or Truth TV, or Engineers and Architects on 9/11. Messengers who question shadow governments or cabals who enable world wars, or military industrial complexes are not seeking anything more than all those persons who enjoy the History Channel when it includes these programs. In the mix of information referenced on other information, some logically see some truth to what Jones presents. But in the final analysis, the question we should ask is, "Is it bullshit, or just fringe?" NOT... "Is this mental illness?" That's a leading assumption in anyone who is open to reading anything. You are casting doubt on the mental capacity to QUESTION!

So, respectfully, I think the OP is focused on the wrong question.
