Before I begin let me state clearly that there are certain conspiracy theories that believe to be true. I believe that there is more to how the Twin Towers came down on 9/11 than we are being told. I believe that the bankers have bought our government and through the CFR pick and choose the candidates we are allowed to vote for. I believe that Barack Obama does not meet the Constitutional requirements as a Natural Born Citizen to be president of the United States. I believe that they are spraying chemtrails in the sky, poisoning our atmosphere and possibly control weather patterns.
I also believe in false flag incidents where things happen which are staged by some to make it look like the events were carried out by someone else, to elicit a desired emotional response from those who witness these events. 9/11 is a perfect example. I think that however deeply our government was involved in 9/11, be it from just simply knowing that it was going to happen and allowing it to so that they could implement all these new anti-terror laws, to the planning and carrying out of the events, that it was a false flag.
In that I mean that events that happened that day were not what they seemed. Sure the buildings came down and roughly 3,000 people lost their lives. But the people blamed for it were not the ones who were responsible. It is a perfect example of the Hegelian Dialect. In the Hegelian Dialect if you want a desired outcome to something you create a crisis. Then when people call for something to be done to solve the crisis you present your solution to the problem which was what you wanted to see implemented all along. Then the people accept your solution willingly.
I believe the Federal Reserve Act was passed due to a false flag. The financial crisis which caused people to demand something be done to stabilize our economic system was staged by the very people who wanted control of our nation’s financial system.
So yes, I believe in conspiracy theories. But there is a problem with conspiracy theories. If you begin listening to them everything newsworthy suddenly becomes some sort of a conspiracy. If you start listening to people everything becomes a conspiracy and you have a hard time believing that anything happens without it being planned, staged, and orchestrated to fool and mislead you.
Sorry to disappoint, but shit happens sometimes and it is not part of some full blown conspiracy. Now I’m not saying that if something which incites the public outrage happens that there aren’t those who won’t take advantage of the situation to their benefit. They most certainly will. What was it Rahm Emmanuel said, “Never let a good crisis go to waste.”
Take for instance these riots in Ferguson Missouri. A cop shoots a black kid and gets off. Now regardless of guilt or innocence on the officers part, the truth is that racial tensions in this country are high and if a white cop kills a black kid, even if justified, there will be protests, and often riots, if the cop is not punished. That is a fact.
To say that these riots are part of some massive conspiracy is wrong. They may have been fueled by the medias portrayal of the ‘supposedly’ innocent young boy this white cop ‘supposedly’ gunned down in cold blood. They may have been fueled by leaders of the black community like Al Sharpton who demands justice when a black youth is killed, (except for all the black on black deaths which don’t seem to bother Mr. Sharpton).
Events like these riots may be infiltrated and used by those who wish to see racial tension and an excuse for a stronger police force to control the people, but the initial reason for which they occur is not always a conspiracy.
There is an ability which I have found to be lacking in many people, that being the skill of critical thinking. Now I know some people may be upset by this, but you cannot get all your information from one source.
If you watch only FOX News then you are getting their perspective on events, and that bias is set by those who own and control FOX News. The same goes for CNN, NBC and all the other news outlets. And this is also true in regards to whatever alternate news source you go to for your news, including INFOWARS.
I now far too many people who get all their information from one source. It matters not whether that source is Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, Bill O Reilly, and yes, even Alex Jones. If you rely only upon one person, one source, for your information then you are not thinking for yourself. What you are doing is being spoon fed information by a person, or group of people, who share a like mind and are giving you only one side of a story.
In 1789 one of the lesser known Founders, Fischer Ames, wrote in a letter to Richard Minot, “I am commonly opposed to those who modestly assume the rank of champions of liberty, and make a very patriotic noise about the people. It is the stale artifice which has duped the world a thousand times, and yet, though detected, it is still successful.” It is just as easy for people to be fooled by those who proclaim themselves to be champions of the truth, or of liberty, as it is to be fooled by those who would see you enslaved. That is why I have never asked anyone to take anything I say for granted. I have always hoped that you would do your own research and come to your own conclusions. But you must be capable, and willing to perform critical thinking to do so.
Critical thinking demands that you take in information from all sources and then evaluate, compare, and then come to your own conclusions. Critical thinking is time consuming and therefore something many people refuse to do. But to be truly informed you must do it. Otherwise you are merely repeating the biases given you by the source you happen to be listening to.
It is fine if you believe in conspiracy theories, but you would be wise to choose carefully what you consider to be a conspiracy and what is just something that happens for no real reason. There are a lot of things happening in this country which are staged events which are used to cause a desired shift in public opinion regarding everything from gun control to the size and scope of government. But to believe that everything that happens is part of some large scale conspiracy is as foolish as ignoring the fact that some conspiracy theories are real.
