Let Me Ask You a Question – 8/19/18

Do you believe in any conspiracy theories?

(i.e. man never landed on the moon, government has an alien as Roswell, vaccines are a way for the government to inject tracking devices, etc.)

  1. I don’t believe in conspiracy theories. In my experience those who peddle such theories tend to be either crackpots or extremists of various stripes. For example neo-Nazis denying that the holocaust never happened via pamphlets such as “The Hoax of the 20th Century”, and The Stalin Society who continue to glorify the legacy of Joseph Stalin, denying the well documented atrocities of his regime.

    On the other hand, those who believe that fairies live at the bottom of their gardens are generally harmless. Indeed there is something rather charming in the idea that fairies do, in fact exist.

  2. It’s not a conspiracy if it’s true! The vast majority of people on the planet choose to live their lives in a perpetual state of “Eyes Wide Shut” Lives are spent thinking things and money and status matter. They believe the crap spewed from news reports, magazines and news papers without an awareness that all news and entertainment companies are owned by a group of rich families, just like all banks are owned by these ultra rich families.
    People who choose to speak out against them generally wind up dead from a car crash, an unexpected heart attack or a drug overdose.
    Wake up!!!

  3. I am not sure if I believe them so much, but I do like reading about them and thinking which ones are true.

    Some of my favs are Australia and Finland don’t exist, The British royal family are lizards, werewolves etc. Flat Earthers.

    Some I just think are dangerous

  4. Occasionally, somebody comes up with one that has a bit of plausibility, even enough to have a chance of being true or partly true, but they don’t catch on because they are not exciting enough. The first requirement for a conspiracy theory is the belief that there is no such thing as coincidence or luck (good or bad). The second is that some identified people with power are either entirely evil or being controlled by the real masters who are evil. The third is that most people are deceived and only the believers in the theory know the truth.

    Of course, there are real conspiracies, “Iran-Contra” for example. I can easily suspect conspiracy in a lot of areas, but if it can’t be proved in a court of law, it is only a suspicion. And, the usual way they are proved is by somebody turning State’s Evidence.

  5. I believe in some of them. I don’t trust our government as far as I can spit. There are too many lobbyists and special interest groups paying top dollar for data not to be released. I personally believe most politicians can be bought (one way or another). My motto, if the government is pushing an agenda; they are up to something.
