We all know Mario and his brother Luigi are drug addicts. They eat nothing but magic mushrooms. Seriously, have you ever seen Mario eat a burger?

There are many theories on the internet about Super Mario being Communist propaganda.

The reasoning is:

1) he wears red
2) he has a mustache like Stalin
3) he puts up a red star when he gets to a castle

Here's a different take on the theory, that Mario is actually a Capitalist fighting against Communism:

EAT THE SHEEP

Red hat? Mario was introduced along with Luigi

They eat magic mushrooms because its all advertising to get kids to play the game

Red Star? Anytime I play mario, when he goes into a castle, he pulls up a flag, and all the stars in the game
are either rainbow or yellow.

Seriously, nowadays everythign is a conspiracy, isn't it?

Interesting topic. Please watch. This mentions Mario Brothers. Nothing to do with advertising or communism according to these videos.

Watched the first 30 seconds and stopped when he said the little hexagon in the GC logo was the G in the Compass and Square of the Freemasons. People! get a grip! Not everything is a conspiracy!

I think the game is promoting Capitalism.

He's chasing coins and eating mushrooms to fight a totalitarian isolationist.

It's not a conspiracy... it's a coincidence... It was programed that way by Japanese Programers.

And by the way, when you get to the end of a level, you pull down a flag.... The stars are in the game itself and not one of them are red.

You are wrong. When you get to a level you pull down a flag with a turtle shell on it and raise a flag with a red star on it.

nedmartin.org...

That being said, I don't believe there is a conspiracy, just a very talented story teller who is perhaps using a veiled sociopolitical theme as a premise.

I don't think Super Mario is communist but I do consider that the story may allude to a Capitalist vs Communist struggle. It is not ridiculous to consider the story teller is using metaphors.

The main programmer considered three names for King Koopa, All of them were Korean foods. Why Korean foods?

Right.

Not everything is a conspiracy. But there are conspiracies.

Is this a strawman thread against conspiracies and their legitimacy.

Is operation Northwoods or MKULTRA real or fake?

I thought Mario and Luigi are Italian? Are they expat's or something? I would hate from going from eating the greatness that is Italian food, to eating nothing but rice and water for the most part.

It's more like a conspiracy against reptilians.
