Conspiracy - truth or fiction?
I know people love conspiracy theories, let’s face it. It is fun to argue about certain events and it really can make a believers or non believers blood boil. I know most of us have experienced the feeling that things were going on that we were not being told about. That things are happening in the world, our government, our town, our street, or out in the depth of the cosmos that might, sooner or later affect or influence our life.
Every so often we found ourselves looking over our shoulder as we feel something is happening but we don't know what it is. And with each new backward glance we see our world growing more complex. It seems there are experts trying to keep the left hand from knowing what the right hand is doing and all throughout, we ordinary citizens remain completely unaware of the workings of either.
Yes it seems conspiracy abound around us, some mundane, some ridiculous, yet all worth pondering about. When people are deprived of the truth we settle for rumor, speculation, and out-and-out fiction. The more we are kept in the dark, the more the grape vine hums. One way or the other, the information vacuum is filled even if its total fabrication.
Take for example the conspiracy theory of The Moon Landing - I think it is safe to say Apollo 11 did in fact land on the moon. There's the JFK Assassination which I believe 100% that the assassination of JFK was a multi-person event. I do not believe the cover story told to America. I wouldn’t be shocked if their own government was involved.
Another disturbing conspiracy is that the CIA is using mind control rays and lasers to erase awareness of the existence of Alien Lifeforms in the general public, ala Men in Black. Followed closely by theory that the US government was behind the World Trade Center/Pentagon plane crashes and that the US and Russian governments have the power to control the weather and tectonic plates and that the Asian Tsunami and Katrina were experiments gone wrong!
And have you heard about the "Chem trails” conspiracy? Many have apparently looked at the sky and seen airplane contrails and have to convince themselves that somebody very powerful are deliberately spraying poison on all of us - all over the world for evil ends.
Of course, still high on the list of all these conspiracies is the theory about the Shadow Government or the New World Order. These are group of elite people who are in control of the world politics, economy and security. These are the Bilderberg attendees and the Illuminati.
It seems though that Americans are more prone to conspiracy theories than Brits, probably due to the fact that there are more conspiracies in America than in Britain - Roswell, Area 51, and Elvis being alive to name but a few.
I can't think of any British ones, besides the Royal Family being aliens. They say the British Royal Family, and its inter-linking bloodlines, are actually reptilian, and that they come from a reptilian extraterrestrial race.
But that's just daft.
