I enjoy the odd consipracy theory - in my opinion 911 is probably the greatest one in History with more twists and turns than a discarded pile of
This thread is not about 911.
I am not saying that conspiracies do not exist. I am convinced there is a darker agenda in many people and governments and possibly many groups of
people who are constantly trying to further their agendas. I am not convinced that there is one global group of people who have successfully over a
long period of time been able to sustain a concerted global change. I could be wrong. This thread is not about them either.
This thread is about Conspiracy Theories, Paranoia and the Overactive Imagination. This thread is about my concern about the large number of people
who are seeing a conspiracy in every shadow, behind every tree, and possibly in every bowl of rice crispies they eat for breakfast. They are as absurd
as the people who see images of Virgin Madonna on slices of toast, waterstains on ceilings or rust stains on cars.
ATS is a great site for a number of reasons and appeals to a wide variety of interests - the most active Feed is the Conspiracy site where users are
encouraged to post their theories on all manners of conspiracies.
Herein lies the problem - any person who studies or is interested in human behaviour and psychology knows full well the phrase "feeding into
paranioa". If a person has any tendency towards being a paranoid schizophrenic, then ATS is the last place they should be spending their time.
Here are examples:
Michelle Obama posing on a magazine and secretly indicating the date of a false-flag operation
Haven't these people heard of e-mail to plan their dastardly deeds?
How about the one of Hitler is still alive?
Maybe his death was suspicious, but the Israeli's successfully tracked down many of his peers - if alive they would have know about it.
The Computer is Your Enemy -
The American government spies on Americans and as much of the world as it can. We know this, and they have passed the Patriot Act just so they can't
be challenged. Where is the conspiracy?
One of my alltime favorites is the Dragonfly spy theory ...
Do I think I am being followed by black vehicles with black tinted windows merely because I log onto ATs every day (this must be the cause of global
warning - all this following of ATS internet users)? I drive a black car with tinted windows! I should be following people. No wonder people get
worried when I am travelling home and follow them for a few too many blocks.
I do believe we should all be on our guard against manipulation and control. However, we really need to exercise a bit of logic and common-sense. Most
of us are not worth spying on - not even by robot Dragonflies.
