Hi guys, I just wanted to share my story, and maybe give you some interesting insights.
To start with just a quick introduction, I am now 30 years old, have a good education and work a nice job.
During university I got into the 9/11 debate and was quickly hooked. Searching for new reports and videos every evening and really getting into the
inside job camp.
Following that I quickly got into other conspiracy stuff as well, the fed, Irak, the bush administration itself, ufo /alien related topics, haarp you
name it, I researched it.
All this process went along for about two years and at the end of that period I basically was completely convinced that the world we live in is just a
staged play for us to consume products and don´t question authority.
I even insulted one of my PR professor after asking him if he knew about the bilderberg group. As he said yes and said that its not a big deal I wrote
him a letter basically telling him that he is a coward for not acting on his knowledge etc.
I talked to other students about 911 etc. I was really, really into the whole thing.
After I moved to a new job things started to slow down a bit, but I was still a believer in all of these topics. Worrying about haarp and chemtrails
at night, angry about the apparent unjustice that was 911.
Then I heard a short documentary on the radio about conspiracy theories and why they are so popular. They then shared the result of a study the
government did about the reasons. I was allready prepared to laugh at the foolish attempt to brainwash the masses with their explanation.
Unfortunately what they said was very logical and stopped me dead. They said that conspiracy theorists tend to inform themselves using a very small
range of media and tend to ignore others. As I was getting my info and news from here and maybe two or three other sites all in the conspiracy
After a while this then becomes your reality as you read nothing else day in and day out, and as soon as you see a "normal" news report you dont take
If you would take all the different information into account while weighting each piece the same you would get a different result.
Do I now think that every conspiracy theory is wrong? No, I don´t. We all know that there are proven ones in the past. Do I still think that haarp is
a death ray and that chemtrails are for poisoning the people? I highly doubt it.
I still listen to Coast to Coast and enjoy the show. And some I still find very interesting. Its just that my perspective has changed a bit and I do
not take things that serious anymore. And you know what? I live a lot more relaxed that way.
And you should take into consideration that the whole conspiracy field is a market, with a lot of books and conferences to sell.
Just open your eyes a little and take the world for what it is. A beautiful place with lots of exciting things to discover and way to few time to do
Just my 2 cents,
