You know what I find interesting is that, I personally am starting to believe that the Conspiracy was first started to make humanity actually believe in what the government actually really needs us to believe in....sounds weird right? but not when you think about it. Classic Bait and Switch Tactic. But on Humanity.
We get used to hearing all the time about,plots, time lines, conspiracies, alien interventions and predictions. With none of them coming to light, ever. We keep wishing and hoping that something will go wrong,something will happen that will set us "free",something that will change the world for the better, but it just leaves us sitting on the edge of our seats, with our eyes bugged out and our nails bitten down to the skin, time and time again. Until one day we wake up, give up, and start to follow suit.
I know I have lost a great many friends from fun nights of drinking, poker and conspiracy talks. talks that never proved one single thing, except for some people and web sites cashing in on mega bucks and mega ads. Nothing more.
They loose interest, hope and leave everything else to chance. meaning they go back to the "normal world". I am almost at that point. especially after watching all the mumbo jumbo that went on during november 6 2010 all due to a freaking SIMPSONS episode? I mean come on.
In a nutshell, maybe conspiracy theories were created to cause a false hope and keep us in a permanent state of fear, a fear that leads us to believe that we can make a difference, when we actually cannot, will not and won't ever get the chance too. I tend to think of us at times as lil red riding hood who was lured into the forest with candy from the Big Bad Wolf.
