Those Goddamned Conspiracy Theorists Again!

"For we are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence--on infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of elections, on intimidation instead of free choice, on guerrillas by night instead of armies by day. It is a system that has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific and political operations. Its preparations are concealed, not published. Its mistakes are buried not headlined. Its dissenters are silenced, not praised. No expenditure is questioned, no rumor is printed, and no secret is revealed." -- John F. Kennedy
(The 1961 Speech That Got JFK Killed)

Okay, I admit it. I am one of the loony Conspiracy Theorists your mother always warned you about! Not only that, but I am really proud to be counted as a member of that so-called lunatic fringe group. After all, I get to 'rub shoulders' with some of the biggest Conspiracy Theorists of all time - nutcases like Galileo who was forced to live out the remainder of his life (barely escaping death) for insisting that the Earth was not the center of the universe, but rotated around the center of our solar system - the Sun! Or the Wright Brothers who were openly jeered and laughed at for the ridiculous notion that Man would one day be capable of flight. A healthy portion of my days are spent undertaking research into many so-called crackpot theories that now abound on the (free for the moment) world-wide web.

Know what? Oftentimes those theories have more gaping holes in them than the 'unsinkable' Titanic! Then again, a great many of them stand up to the most intense scrutiny for anyone taking the time to approach them with an open mind - one not beholden to blind belief in whatever officialdom says. So, does this make me, or any of a growing number of Conspiracy Theorists always right? Obviously not - for a couple of reasons. First, although it is a well-established fact that governments lie all the time about things they would rather we not know, most times they are the very ones who control the investigations. They use any number of tactics to prevent embarrassing or incriminating facts from coming to light, from deliberate lies to hiding behind the oftentimes false cloak of national security.

Another time-tested tactic is the smokescreen of planting their own faulty crackpot theories into the mix, in an effort to further obfuscate the true facts and thereby discredit the entire movement. Such tactics often prove successful - for example, in the 9/11 truth movement a wealth of evidence points to no plane having hit the Pentagon (actually a missile strike together with internally-planted bombs). This was not the case for the WTC Towers which were both struck by large jet aircraft. However, it is well known to 9/11 'truthers' that a certain segment continues to advance the 'no-planes in New York' theory, positing instead that all of the supposed impacts were really Hollywood-type film simulations. Experienced members in the movement see this as a clear example of infiltration by covert agencies.

A lot of time and effort is required whenever you are intent on getting to the truth of any situation - especially when truth has become a means of repression and control for those having other agendas. Most of us have neither the time nor the inclination to challenge widely held beliefs, moreso when it means that you are likely to be exposed to the ridicule of your peers and retribution from the State. Yet this is precisely what is required if we are to free ourselves of false history and keep advancing.

The truth is often messy, unpleasant and downright dangerous to the well-being of those who tell it. Yet, take a moment to imagine what life would be like in the 21st century if Columbus had been too fearful to undertake any voyages across the oceans for fear of falling off the edge of the flat Earth! Or, how much time it would take to travel from New York to Hawaii had the Wright Brothers heeded the call of the many who insisted they stop wasting their time with fanciful notions of human flight!

Here are a few Tidbits, some interesting articles on a broad range of topics and a 'don't-miss' video. Whether or not you believe what they put forth must be based on freely exercising your 'grey matter'.

Famous Conspiracy Quotes

Saturday, January 28, 2012 – by Anthony Wile

Anthony Wile
From Social Psychological and Personality Science (SPPS), a journal from the independent publisher Sage Publications, comes an article that has predictably seen wide distribution on the Internet. It implies that those who believe in globalist conspiracy theories are illogical – even downright nutty.

The article is entitled  "Dead and Alive: Beliefs in Contradictory Conspiracy Theories" and the thesis of the article is that people who believe in conspiracy theories eventually become so immersed in them and so mesmerized that they do not realize they are holding contradictory beliefs.

"Conspiracy theories can form a monological belief system: A self-sustaining worldview comprised of a network of mutually supportive beliefs. The present research shows that even mutually incompatible conspiracy theories are positively correlated in endorsement." (SPPS Abstract)

"Conspiratorialists" become so distrustful of "government" and "authority" that they will impute any and every kind of malevolence to them.

  1. The thing about conspiracy theories is that they are often much juicier than the actual truth. So I tend to take them with a very large pinch of salt. That said, there is a place for conspiracy theories in our lives: http://fromthoughtsintowords.blogspot.com/2008/04/on-conspiracy-theories.html. :)

    Good advice to always take all views with generous doses of salt. My experience has been that those in power have a lot more in the closet than they would like to share with the rest of us - so, I approach their official storyline with a healthy dose of 'salt'!
