I would like to propose some other theories about the current conspiracy issues:
It seems inconsistent that if one believes that aliens are amongst us, they are also highly likely to believe 9/11 was a conspiracy, and are also
highly likely to believe a new world order is being imposed and so on. It appears if you subscribe to one conspiracy theory, you subscribe to them
all. I find this a strange coincidence. These people appear to have spun themselves an overwhelming dark web of conspiracy as a barrier to hold up
against their future and the future of humanity. Rarely, almost never are their conspiracies of benevolent from, consistent malevolence is required to
keep their minds on constant edge. These people are anti-conformist by nature and feel an unexplainable urge to be part of the so called
'counter-culture' or 'underground'. They are separated from the mainstream of society, the majority have sought refuge in the 'new age
conspiracism movement. However the most notable members of the 'new age conspiracist' movement will be the people who chose to enter it, shunning
their former beliefs. Just as the most radical religeous believers are very often converts, these are the converts to the conspiracist movement. These
people will lead the movement and push it towards unforeseen extremes.
The best possible explanation I have concluded for this is that these people are the first, or some of the first to show signs of 'future shock'.
Future shock describes 'the shattering stress and disorientation that we induce in individuals by subjecting them to too much change in too short a
time'. 'The psycho-biological condition can be described in medical and psychiatric terms. It is the disease of change.'
The parallels between religion and conspiracism are huge, but go easily unnoticed even by the conspiracist and worshipper. Put simply - Heaven is to
the Christian as 'The Truth' is to the conspiracist. They believe as soon as the public consciousness is aware of this truth, all will be good. Just
as a Christian believes as soon as the world is all Christian, all will be good. The conspiracist and religeous crowds will argue their cause to the
end, just as any people of separate religions would be expected to. No proof or evidence is required for the conspiracist or the worshipper, just
faith or willingness to believe.
Over history times of increased change encounter increased oppostion. This is the sign of future shock. Conspiracism is the oppostion to change, and a
dangerous one. People live in increasingly separated realities, most move to simple alternative realities such as the television. However these
conspiracists move towards a dangerous attitude of non-conformity which will undoubtably as the acceleration of change increases will result in
increased segregation from the mass and if allowed to evolve unchecked turn into a threat to organized government and order. The conspiracists see
only their point of view, just as religeous extremists see only their point of view. Through the development of communication these conspiracists will
be capable of forming groups in which they will become radicalized to their beliefs and if left unchecked will form segregated groups willing to
promote their beliefs through whatever methods they see fit. There was a large movement of counter-culturalism during the 70's due to the large
technological leaps beings made, notably the introduction of the computer. As automation of production and an ever increasing diversity of choice
enters current society occurs oppostion will occur. Not all of this opposition will be of the conspiracist crowd, many will revert to past techniques
such as that of the hippy counter scene - This can be seen to emerging at the current time, there has been a significant increase in 'revolutionary
lyrics' and popular counter culture music recently and a massive increase in so called Anti-Americanism spurred on not only by war in the Middle East
but an increased resistance to change.
This 'new age conspiricism' I have concluded is the slowly emerging threat to society. It cannot be prevented and as I have stated is the result of
a mixture of future shock and separation. It will continue to grow and has deep rooted opposition in the idea of a single world government which
eventually will emerge. This government will be deemed evil by them and opposed, undoubtably many will die in this oppostion fighting for what they
truely believe in. The introduction of the internet has started the rapid growth of this movement and it will gain ground over the following decade
forming a genuine oppostion rooted with its own ideas and theories as to how society should be run and by whom.
