Re: Us government's trick to violate civil liberties
AW - You're somewhat right in your view of where the burden of proof lies with a possibility and a theory.
However, the problem here is that you're not looking at this as a possibility. You're looking at it as an assertion and so do the majority of people that believe in it, to assume that it is fact you should have the relevant evidence to support your claims. If someone says you're wrong (mostly due to the lack of evidence on your part), then it's up to you to provide that evidence or admit that you do not have the evidence to back up your claims and you could in fact be wrong.
In the same way that if I said you were actually a unicorn but only I could see you in all your rainbow glory, that it would be up to me to provide that evidence once you said that I was wrong.
HR - That's just completely retarded dude. Just everything.
