How TPTB maintain control : A theory
In the years I have been interested in conspiracy theories, I have always wondered how this massive house of cards hasn't come crashing down at least a few times. As I considered this thought, and as I explored more and more conspiracies, I realized that some have certainly failed. How many things go as planned and we end up hearing nothing of it? How many of the conspiracies we do know about were failed executions, the sloppy execution giving us the evidence to notice it? So much else has happened that most stop looking at them, the passion for them dies. I believe this is a real strength of TPTB. They have built a wide range of conspiracies that are so intertwined that even if one fails and the public gets a treasure trove of evidence to prove some dastardly conspiracy has taken place, the sheer level of contingencies, scapegoats and distractions will keep the larger plans intact. They use this wide array of conspiracies and assets to constantly distract the public from the rest or their plans. And sadly I do believe this may also mean there is little that can be done about it.

I didn't even need to read the whole thing to know you were spot on.
I started thinking of this when I realized how much I don't know. Instead of trying to be a know it all and research every conspiracy known to man, I decided to take a different approach. I'm not sure how many people can understand this though. There is too much to take in and worry about in life. My hypothesis was that they MAKE IT THIS WAY. Thats how they control people. They metaphorically and literally keep us in a loop.
And trust me, their isn't anything you can do about it. People can post up their quotes about strength in numbers, how we need to audit the FED, how we can make a change, how we need to stop the corrupt politicians or anything else, but the fact is there is nothing you can do about it. Be warned though, you'll be trolled and flamed for coming to a conclusion like this. (Albeit a damn good one that matches my thoughts exactly)
People can't accept the truth.

I think your theory is correct but I have to add how they control us isn't just the amount they release but it's what they release. My guess is 90% of the media we receive is tailored to what they want us to hear. Anyone else is quickly considered 'fringe'. Many hear something on the news and take it as the gospel truth. Even if something comes up later recanting the story the damage has already been done.
It is easy to learn something but harder to unlearn it.
We have media outlets that are biased toward one political party or the other. Rarely do we find one who is unbiased. One station will tell you how horrible Obama is doing while the other will tell you how wonderful he is doing. Regardless of your political opinion the fact that you get two entirely different stories from two supposedly reputable media outlets should help you see how they manipulate us. They divide us with rhetoric of red and blue when all we really need is for them to be is black and white with there facts. There should be no opinion in the news we receive. Just give us the facts and let us decide our opinion.
The media is who needs to be 'occupied'. They are who ultimately decides who even hears about your cause. If decided they can demonize you and most will believe it instantly which ruins your movement. My example, you may agree or not, is the Ron Paul campaign.edit on 10-10-2012 by TheLieWeLive because: (no reason given)
