I’ve blogged about conspiracies here before and some would say conspiracies are all I have left to talk about. That’s bullshit of course, I have tons more tips on organic gardening. But, while we sit here waiting for Spring, let’s return to the “problem” of conspiracy theories for a moment…
I believe we live in a Post-Conspiracy world. The belief in “alternate theories” is now so pervasive that it has become the mainstream. Either we’re all slowly going insane (possible) or the gatekeepers of the truth are suffering from massive management fatigue. A good example is Pearl Harbor. If you still think it was a Japanese “surprise attack”, you are in the minority and you probably have fallen victim to other lies – I mean – truths.
In fact, not believing in conspiracy theories is now a more irrational act than believing in them. It takes far more faith too. 9/11 is the classic meme that “they” trot out to shut a questioner down anytime the questions get uncomfortably close to revealing some hidden agenda. I’m tired of both the “Truthers” and the regime apologists so I’ll just leave you with Building 7.
Do all the research you want. Dive in and splash around in the “facts” and the speculation. See what you come up with and then share it with somebody. Chances are you won’t get laughed at like you might’ve 10 or 20 years ago.
Just like Dorothy, we’ve all caught a glimpse of the little man behind the curtain who is pulling furiously at all the levers in an attempt to keep us frightened and inactive. We are waking from one hundred years of slumber.
And we are not powerless. Yes, our own leaders will call out the troops and gun us down in the streets when finally we rise up to resist and dismantle their program of oppression. If you die, do so with a smile on your lips knowing that there is no more noble cause for which to sacrifice yourself.
