I blogged about grand conspiracy theories before here. These New World Order conspiracy theorists are no better than any religious nut that ignores overwhelming evidence in favor their implausible view on history. And over time, these beliefs grow to a point where they deny much of history.
These days it usually starts with just being convinced by a bunch of random, impressive-sounding claims that there are holes in “the official story” of 9/11. Next, you become convinced that “9/11 was an inside job.” Then you find yourself inexplicably drawn to Ron Paul even know Ron Paul is against most of your far-left political beliefs and has never publicly supported any 9/11 conspiracies. Then you’re introduced to Alex Jones’ radio show.
By this point your critical thinking skills have almost entirely atrophied, and you are now willing to believe anything the charismatic leader, Jones, and a handful of lone “whistle-blowers” tell you unquestionably without evidence while inconsistently demanding an impossible amount of evidence from the over 99% of other experts that disagree with your lone experts. By this point, you’ve been primed to view all critics who have a public voice and get news attention as part of the conspiracy and all critics that don’t have a public voice as “sheep” or “sheeple” who just believe everything “the media” tells them. This keeps you from even hearing out the criticisms, let alone legitimately consider the refutations.
Instead, you’ll use bravado to launch into ad hominem attacks, calling your critics the most horrible things you can think of while insisting that because they don’t agree with you that makes them a sheep who just listens to what they’re told and never questions anything and who wouldn’t even be convinced if real evidence was right in front of them. It’s at this point they quite reasonably laugh at you for projecting your own dogmatism onto them. By this point you’ve no doubt accepted that 9/11 wasn’t an isolated conspiracy but part of the great big conspiracy that’s been going on for centuries involving the Illuminati, The Rothchilds, the Rockefellers, and of course the Merovingians because you read the fictional novel The Da Vinci Code.
You’ve now saturated your Myspace page with iconography from The Matrix, V For Vendetta, and the Freemasons while peppering your ever sentence with a reference to 1984 or Alice in Wonderland. So now everything the government says is viewed as Newspeak for something far more sinister. You now believe FEMA has 500,000 upright, plastic coffins laying out in a field somewhere for everyone to see that are supposed to be for their secret plan to gas us all for no good reason and FEMA has secret prison camps that only Alex Jones and his listeners know about that’s for when the secret police start hauling off random American citizens into concentration camps for no good reason. You also believe that the government is using fluoride they openly admit to adding to tap water as a means of poisoning us all very, very, very, very slowly…even though few Americans even drink tap water, and that the government is poisoning the air with “chemtrails” as another absurdly slow means of killing people, and that the government is responsible for causing AIDS and is poisoning vaccines with “toxins” to make kids autistic because apparently they ran out of dingos to eat your baby.
You also believe that Pearl Harbor, like what you think with 9/11, was a false flag operation, that the U.S. was in cahoots with Hitler during the Holocaust while at same time Zionists are at the center of it all, and that all of this is because, as David Icke explains, all the major world leaders are secretly shape-shifting reptiles from another planet with sinister V-like evil plans for the Earth. You also believe this ties in somehow with Biblical prophecies of the Anti-Christ and 2012 doomsday prophecies. All the while, you don’t find it at all odd that despite “exposing” the evil conspiracy through open channels on the internet that no secret police has shown up during the night to abduct you or your family, bribe you, or silence you in anyway despite the belief that they do such things on a regular basis.
You also, despite believing that your own government is perfectly willing to kill 3 thousand people just for shits and giggles, have not seriously considered moving to another country or made any real attempt to go off the grid where the government couldn’t find you if they really wanted to. Nor have you made any attempt to plan a strategic military operation against those you are certain are secretly committing the worst crimes in history, no attempts to kill or kidnap David Rockefeller or one of the Rothchilds, etc. Instead, you’re perfectly satisfied just trying to spread the “Truth” to those who no longer find your craziness cute and don’t have any interest in even hearing you out anymore.
Then after none of this impending doom actually happens, eventually a new president with an entirely different goals and values is freely elected and then finally inaugurated into office. Now that the old administration is obviously gone you finally accept that you were completely and utterly wrong about everything.
LOL. Just kidding.
Of course not. No matter how different the 2 administrations are you know that that election was a sham and that both the former president and the current president are part of the same secret society and they just go through all this trouble to fabricate an election to further perpetuate the illusion that you’re in control when really they’re still running the show no matter what. All that time the 2 figures spent slamming each other during the campaign–that’s just to keep up the illusion. Duh! So even though after years of FEMA not poisoning 500,000 people during the Bush Administration, it’s still just around the corner, even if just around the corner means long after you’re alive to have your beliefs vindicated.
