Lawyer Debunks Flat Earth's Antartic Treaty Conspiracy
The YouTube video below is of lawyer Steve Lehto reading the entire Antarctic Treaty of 1959 to prove there is obviously no scary armed military standing guard around an imaginary edge.
In Article I it clearly shows that the conspiracy of armed soldiers is nonsense.
Antarctica shall be used for peaceful purposes only. There shall be prohibited, inter alia, any measures of a military nature, such as the establishment of military bases and fortifications, the carrying out of military maneuvers, as well as the testing of any type of weapons.
If people who believe in flat Earth nonsense just read the first article and nothing else in the treaty they...Who am I kidding? Nobody who believes in a flat Earth does independent research. If somebody told them the treaty allows armed soldiers then that's the end of their research process. They're duty bound in a silly game of telephone to repeat what they were told to others who also won't bother actually reading the primary source.
Reading is hard. The only thing harder than that would probably be thinking through the logic.
Polar Cruises is a company that specializes in trips to Antarctica and the arctic region. Nobody is stopping people who believe in a flat Earth from going there. Secretly there is a lot of support for rounding flat Earth supporters up and setting up a Flat Earth Antarctic colony where they can run with scissors and stick their tongues in electric sockets to their heart's content. Anyway, the Polar Cruises website has a page about the continent's weather and environment. Since the continent is the driest desert in the world with no indigenous populations it makes no sense logistically to have soldiers standing watch and very few would even volunteer for such a duty.
