    you shall know the truth
    and the truth will occupy a lot of your time &
    some of your money
    and not a galddamned thing will change
    and get crucifiedto boot

  3. Geniuses behind this never heard of Iran/Contra, Gladio, Northwoods, etc. They actually mentioned Watergate, but not for what it was – an actual conspiracy run out of the white house and the Committee to Re-Elect the President, but as a source of alleged “paranoia.”

    This is disinformation, a grand theory of banality where powerful people don’t ever conspire to break laws, because these propagandists consider it too unthinkable: and you should too. This “not” conspiracy theory is far more outlandish than reality, if they’d learned to to some basic research. Blathering over (copyright infringed) cuts from movies does not make one particularly intelligent.

    Many cases of governments breaking the law are plastered right in the mainstream news. But, I guess that doesn’t count, because there are no conspiracies.

    What gibberish. What offensive, dishonest gibberish.

      There could be some truth to what he says. I agree with you on the points you made, I have researched Gladio and other strategy of tension conspiracies, and there is ample (publicly available) evidence that these things happened, in Italy, in the US and in Belgium etc. What he might be shooting for is some of the conspiracies that are in the margins, and in that vein I’m not sure if he is genuine or not. The truth part I mentioned is this, we all know there are some ideas that are on a trajectory straight into crazyville, and others that are not but are dressed up by disinfo/misinfo operations to appear that way so the larger general public doesn’t pursue them (crop circles, SRA, assassinations, Gladio etc.). I think that dividing line is often hard to pin down, and that is where guys like this fellow COULD be exploiting that line, or could be going right over the edge of it as you suggest. I’d give hi a try and see what he has to say (though I’m not paying him for this, I’ll find it on a torrent if it’s available sometime, you want to sell shit to people sell it in the form of plastic, the only legit way to sell things, you can’t sell information). I do know one thing, he is embracing the conspiracy theory phraseology very heavily, and in this day and age that to me seems rather fucked up. The phrase itself has it’s roots in the debunking of conspiracies in the 60’s and was propagated by journalists and media outlets (and their handlers at the various alphabet soup agencies that feed them info occasionally) as a way to discredit anit-establishment movements for justice and freedom. I prefer to use the phrase criminal conspiracy and here is why. Criminal conspiracies happen every day, in fact we have whole arms of state, county and federal government who are dedicated to investigating them, so in the larger consensus reality schema they are accepted as real. The other reason is you/me/we are being accurate with that assessment, and leaving out certain unreasonable concepts when we require that a crime be part of the formulation of the conspiracy. Crimes to hide vital information from the public, kill people, violate rights or the same against groups of people, and crimes against nature (pollution, resource theft) are all very reasonable examples. I realize that is fairly broad, but there are categories here, and these categories allow you to fit things in, or not fit things into them if they do not fit into this general theory of criminal intent and victim creation. One example of this to me, in my mind would be drug laws. With the exception of children, and those who cannot possibly be considered to take care of them selves (mentally handicapped, developmentally disabled to some extent, cognitively impaired), where is the victim position in relation to the person who buys drugs, and where is the crime in the actions of the person who is selling the controlled substance? I understand cartels kill people, and there are secondary issues but those are all part of the criminalize nature and the subsequent war on drugs (or aka giving law enforcement something to do). What one person does with their own body is not under the purview of the state in this regard, if you default to natural law, which I am in this argument. So where is the criminal conspiracy? It’s in the law, man’s law, and it involves a way to control a segment of society through regulation of a substance that society has decided it has to protect people from. Well that’s bullshit, your the best judge of what you need to be protected from. So right there is a class of conspiracy we can throw out. There ay be others too that fall into that crazyville area, like aliens colonizing the moon to spy on us. OK so there are aliens colonizing the moon, how am I a victim? This is a 6 am just woke up rant in response to this post, so sorry if it is a bit on the rambling side, I tried to make a cogent argument but I’m not sure I pulled it off 100%. Cheers.

  4. Conspiracy theories are not all ‘…expressions of a uniquely modern anxiety; the sensation that you are trapped within the design of a greater power.’

    Some of them are expressions of the fucking fact that they better explain events than the official story, like for instance that peach of a tale about the band of box-cutter bandits that invaded the most protected airspace of the most powerful country that has ever existed with the biggest and best ever global network of intelligence and umm drove a plane into their military HQ….. yeah yeah yeah right

      how ironic when those seeking to escape shoveling horse shit create a civilization to hide from the fact they’re still shoveling horse shit.

      oh wait, that’s vehicle emissions these days, isn’t it?

    What a waste of time.

    This looks good. It’s about time someone looked at the motivations and factors that create and sustain conspiracy theories, which have become a kind of religion with “them” taking the place of God but serving the same faith-based needs.

    • Simon Valentine | Feb 4, 2014 at 3:31 pm |

      if you’d said “good. use logic.”, then yeah.

      no one knows motivations, and factors is going to go to an unsolved problem – it’s known to, shown to, and old-fashioned look-through is good too. i see you, dr mabeuse.
