The Conspiracy Mockumentary

Here we go again, another movie portraying conspiracy theorists as completely headcases. On the other hand, the trailer makes it look a whole lot better than the Mel Gibson attempt at the same.

The Conspiracy is directed by Christopher McBride and features Aaron Poole, James Gilbert, Peter Apostolopoulos, Angela Besharah, and Laura de Carteret. The official synopsis: “A documentary about conspiracy theories takes a horrific turn after the filmmakers uncover an ancient and dangerous secret society.”

    They fucking are. Conspiracy theorists need to kill themselves. Bill Hicks thinks so.

      I tried but there is a group of kind hearted individuals that get in my way.

    I want that someone explained me how two planes destroyed three buildings to dust on 9/11. 
    Show me please the smallest piece of airplane which hit pentagon on 9/11.
    I want Bush to be prosecuted as criminal for falsification of reason for invasion Afghanistan, Iraq and killing hundreds of thousands innocent people, including american.  
    These are not conspiracies. These are crimes. Conspiracy begins when no one is responsible for the crime. I am demanding truth and justice. Or is it just a chutzpah to call crazy conspirasists those who demand  truth and justice.

      Right, but this movie gives the sheeple who subject themselves to it,
      the rational for thinking that you have to be a nut to think the elites are fcking with you.

      But not surprisingly, about 49% of America agrees.
      Now if we could just get another 5% from the dumb asses, maybe we’d get this fixed.

    This doesn’t portray conspiracy theorists as head cases. It looks as if it’s lending some light to the ideas of conspiracies being true.

    • UglyJoe

      That’s what I thought! It makes the people who refute the conspiracy theories sound more crazy than the people who believe in them.  

      • CosmicAmazing

        Because they are, normal is crazy and crazy is normal. If you live in reality and understand the world around you, you’re crazy. If you live in a box and think the media and government tell the truth, politicians and corporations have your best interests at heart and Oil is the only workable fuel for things. Then you would be considered normal, but really your bat-shit fucking crazy.

          It is possible to have the opinion that media/government/corporations lie and manipulate, and still not believe in conspiracy theories…

          • CosmicAmazing

            What’s your theory as to why the media/government/corporations (large and small groups of people conspiring to do something) lie and manipulate?  

          • BrianApocalypse

            Because they want power and wealth, and the more they get the more they want (or the more they believe they need). We live in a world of limited resources where powers must compete. Simple greed and the accumulation of power can account for most of what is otherwise ascribed to secret agendas/long-term conspiracies etc.

          • CosmicAmazing

            The basic premise of your theory is correct. They do want power and wealth, and the more they get the more they want. But they conspire together to accomplish this through various ways. Many of these ways I’m certain everyone is not privy to. However, they happen none-the-less. Whether a plan is long-term or short-term it will eventually come to fruition. Yet you deny the very existence of this?  

            These greedy people, are they stupid as well?

          • BrianApocalypse

            I would distinguish between genuine analysis of politics/corruption/economics etc from “conspiracy theories”. For example, most people who like the work of Noam Chomsky would not refer to him as a “conspiracy theorist”, and yet so much of his work is about the lies and corruption of governments and corporations etc.

            In the over-arching ‘mythology’ of conspiracy theory, there exists ancient plans and religions hell-bent on world domination, and it can make a mockery of genuine critique, turning the whole scenario into something that more resembles a cartoon than reality.

            I so often see conspiracy theorists denounce anyone who doesn’t agree with them as being “sheep” or somehow agreeing with the government/corporations etc. Like if you don’t accept their theories then you must automatically be a brainwashed idiot. But there exists a whole range opinions and perspectives beyond this duality.

            Of course, but to deny that these corrupt individuals conspire to do harm is borderline insanity. Which was the point I was making in my first comment.
            I don’t think that you can believe the media/government/corporations lie and manipulate without believing in some form of conspiratorial action. It doesn’t have to be a conspiracy about ancient plans and religions hell-bent on world domination. It can be another well thought out theory based on evidence, scientific method, and/or first, second, or third hand experience. 

            Once you start to see the whole picture, you realize, this reality is a fucking cartoon.   

          • BrianApocalypse

             I never denied they conspire, but are they intentionally trying to ‘do harm’ or is the damage they cause a side-effect of their callous drive for more power and wealth?

            Take for example the use of plastics in consumer products that contain Bisphenol A. Some conspiracy theorists would have us believe this is a conscious and intentional plan to poison the population and induce various medical effects (including a conspiracy to make people gay!). The implication being of course that, somewhere, a group of influential people got together and actually planned this. Is that what happened? Or is it simply a matter of corporations seeking to minimize their operating costs with little regard for public health?

            It’s easy to overlay an imaginary ‘conspiracy’ scenario over things like this, when in fact the truth may be far more mundane; the result of an intersection between greed, human fallibility and the impersonal nature of capitalism itself.

            But I think part of what we’re disagreeing on here is just a matter of semantics. Of course, your description of a rational conspiracy theory based on solid evidence would be perfectly valid, if that’s what it truly was. But in my experience, what we generally call ‘conspiracy theories’ rarely conform to such standards. There are stories of government and corporate corruption based on real evidence in mainstream news every day, but nobody calls them ‘conspiracy theories’.

      It does, subjectively. The conspiracy theorist is portrayed as a headcase even though he speaks logically. They credit him with knowing the truth but paint the picture that anyone who believes what he believes must be like him. IMO truthers and “conspiracy theorists” are more prevalent within the younger age groups.

    I wonder if they realize that every mainstream news broadcast is seen as a laugh riot mockumentary to anyone with two brain cells to rub together?

    Majestic,

    How high were you when you posted this?

    “Here we go again, another movie portraying conspiracy theorists as completely headcases.”

    Where does the trailer portray that? It seems to portray the exact opposite. 

    • CosmicAmazing

      Watch the video, look at who the conspiracy theorist is compared to the rest of the people. Why is he so different? 

  • me

    hollywood is trying hard to defend illuminati :DDDDD.
    making these sort of films.
    to capture some peoples’ minds into thinking “everything is ok. everything is under control. sleep tight” :DD
    it is obvious that something is not OK.
    if you’re not blind.

    aw another attempt of illuminatis.
    damn i hate them. :)
