Why is there such a widespread belief in a NWO govt, and why have such theories taken off in the last 8-9 years?
Two alternative theories I've been considering lately are that 1. we have been suffering from collective post traumatic stress disorder since 9-11
and the mental stress has caused us to cling to fantastic theories about who is behind it all.
Or 2. In the absence of religion our secular world has caused us to fill the void left by God with another unseen Hidden Hand which is guiding our
For the PTSD theory I note that pre 9-11 conspiracy theories were very much on the fringes of society. The "Elvis is alive" theory being a joke, and
the only others being Moon landings, Roswell and ET cover-ups, and Kennedy. All plausible with well
reasoned arguments and good cause to doubt the official stories. But still on the fringes of mainstream society, and not connected to a wider and all
Now look where we are - it's crept up on us gradually so that we haven't noticed, but we are now in a state where almost nothing can happen that
isn't blamed on the USA or the NWO. Every war, natural disaster or economic problem is automatically assumed to be artificially manipulated - Weather
machines, earthquake generators, fixing the price of a barrel of oil, every pandemic and disease is their creation, TV emitting mind control waves,
toilet paper laced with bacteria...the list goes on. Some of this must surely have natural causes, and Russia, China and Iran - who are most certainly
not NWO servants, must be doing some manipulation of their own. But noone's taking any notice of their activities, so they can do as they
please - the world's 1st terrorist attack using radiated material was not the NWO but Russia;

The point of the above is not to defend America or take sides, it is just to point out that the focus on USA/NWO as the source of the evil in the
world is skewed and leaves us open to attack and manipulation from other forces.
Although I'm playing Devil's Advocate here, and I do beleieve in much of the NWO stuff, we should still be open to the possibility that our
governments really are just incompetent goons lurching from one crisis to the next.
To believe this, however, is possibly more frightening than thinking that at least someone is in control. In the trauma following 9-11 who would have
wanted to believe that the people we relied on to protect us were useless against a small group of psychos with boxcutters. Pure evil is frightening
and incomprehensible, and so in a time of stress it is more comforting to turn on ourselves, to project blame onto something or someone more familiar.
The explosion in theories blaming our own
goverments for everything that's wrong with the world is the result.
