Bröckers positions are partly controversial. His explanatory approaches, especially to the terrorist attacks of 11 September 2001, to the Ukraine war, to the assassination of John F. Kennedy and to Julian Assange are classified as conspiracy theories. He advocates the legalization of drugs, especially of hemp. Provided by Wikipedia
