Why do family members bother us about Conspiracy?

Not just ATS, but wanting to know in general, keeping aware of what's going on, and wanting to know what is behind the actions of the powers that be. For that matter just making a statement like 'The Powers That Be' or even suggesting something absolutely confirmed such as the use of television for ideological subversion - for some reason makes your own family members think that you are nuts. I think it's offensive.

Have you ever heard these words from people in your home... Why are you so paranoid. It's not normal to spend so much time on the computer. It's not normal to study so much. You should get out more often. Why don't you spend more time with real friends... and on and on and on and on and on ad infinitum.

And even though we all know that they are criticizing us they always seem to try to claim that they are actually just 'concerned'. Sorry honey, I guess I should be out getting drunk and banging the bar maid like your last husband...

Does anyone else have to live with this kind of BS?

Fear is why the ridicule.

And yes I too am sick to death of the piss-head culture.

If you go out - try finding a place where people aint being dicks getting drunk and becoming ignorant and aggressive. Near impossible. Even in church they promote drinking for christsakes!

Focus on what you want - hone your research skills - learn learn learn what you can. Because when these abnormal piss-heads wake up - you're gonna have to educate them on everything.

Because each and every one of us has been personally infiltrated by fake family members who are in on i---

I'm sorry, I can't do this. It's ridiculous. My family doesn't give a crap that I'm interested in conspiracy theories; they roll their eyes a little, but let me go on. My grandfather is a "Good 2012" style spiritualist. You are painting bizarre swaths of people with one paintbrush for no reason.

Why is your family concerned about your interest in conspiracy theories? Probably because you fly off the handle and accuse them of being part of the conspiracy when they so much as wonder what you see in this field. Which, though you haven't come out and done it directly, you are pretty clearly implying here. Not exactly safe, reassuring behavior, that.

I know exactly what you say.
OK, they're actually quite glad I'm home these days.
Going out is pretty risky.

Nevertheless, it's always: he believes everything he reads and so forth, and they slag you off about things simply because they (the family) haven't heard of it.
It's also political.
So with a more right-wing dad or brother you'll be applauded for scandals in liberation movements and other cultures, but they'll call you crazy for ever questioning 9/11 or the Bush dynasty.

It's really quite relative.

Most people are Sheeple. I was one. One single comment or happening on one solitary fact that doesn't quite jive with what you were taught or knew will trigger the doubts. Then they look and BAM they realize that all the garbage that they've been fed all of their lives was a lie. Almost 20 years of school was a waste of time except for science, math and English classes. It's a hard thing to get your brain around and frankly I don't think most people can do it.

I often try to remember a time when I didn't have all that food, a safe room or even suspected that something is wrong. Takes a long time to get the idea that you need to rely on yourself and nobody else - most family members will coming running the first time something happens. Better yet is when someone grabs you by the throat and screams how did you know. Been there, done that. One way to get converts.

My latest mental exercise it to try to put myself in the same mindset that I was in when I was like them. I just let the information stream fly by me without looking at it. It's a pretty good exercise to see if you are becoming too paranoid or are seeing things that aren't there.

For myself, I know that everyone I know is in on the conspiracy but they won't admit it.

From the non-conspiratorial side of the room: I get the same thing from my husband.....he has no clue why I find researching for facts and debunking all the theories I can is so entertaining for me. It's part learning experience, a really big part, and the other part service to those on the fence, or exposed to some PCT (paranoid conspiracy theory) for the first time, by showing the real world answer to why there are white lines behind airplanes, or why several seismographs are showing just one earthquake, not many.
There is also something that has no analogy to being non-conspiratorial.....paranoia. Paranoia is a symptom of mental illness. The fact that they are pointing out the time you spend on the computer and researching shows you are not spending enough quality time with them. You isolate yourself behind the monitor, speaking to people about things for which there is no proof......they are theories, after all. And you think, and show that they are not in on your secrets, they are wrong, they are asleep and therefore stupid.
If my husband was a conspiracy nut, believing even one of the many theories out there, I wouldn't put up with it. It's not a healthy thought pattern to fear (and that is what you are doing.....fearing something unknown) every little thing is some how part of a plot against you.
If they are saying you need to get out more, need to read a book, leave the computer off for a while, pull your head out of your @$$, or whatever, you should listen. Or you will lose them, and the dread "they" you believe in has won. Last time I checked, family and friends were more important than worrying about the tiled floor shown on a foyer floor of a home owned by someone who is famous for having a porn tape and a big butt.

The really rotten part is, so-called "family members" can denounce you to the Authorities, have you locked up even though you haven't done anything, lie and have you kicked out of your own home, job etc.

You may not even see it coming.

Our kids spend more time with NWO 'handlers' now than they do with the working stiff that pays for everything AKA "Dad".

With their divided 'loyalties' and Radical Islamic 'buddyboys' and their concerned parasitic 'counselors' listening for possible parental subversive activity--

It's amazing any family still exists.

And if you get old enough, who locks you up in the retirement home?

You guessed it: family.

I remember when "family" were the people you could count on.

So take care- beware- and if you have one good friend (maybe a family member), you are a wealthy man.

You should watch this video and then tell me what you think. It sounds as though you may have some good insights on the subject.

Sad but true. It always does seem to be the family members that rat people out and from what I see it mostly seems to be women. They seem to be the most easily swayed by the big pharma lies that people need to be medicated for everything and if you're not medicated - there must be something wrong with you.

Ever since the riots started
I have been using this video to calm
and relax my friends and family, and it's worked.

An alcholoic friend responded on Facebook with "Beautiful."

My baby sister sent a message from Paris say "this made my morning."

I brought some governement housing rappers into my house, gave em each a coke
and showed them this video. They shrugged it off, but one came back
two days later and wanted to talke about a video he wanted to make.

Timestop 1:13 - 1:24
Pertains directly to this thread.

The lyrics for those 11 seconds say

"A future full of isolated...
Isolated... boys and girls."

I recommend showing them this video,
and asking if they have any questions.

Here is how to grade the results.

Zero questions = completely asleep
infinite questions = awake

Most will fall somewhere inbetween.
