Hello Sovereign1, congratulations on your first post here at ATS.
Your question: "Is Conspiracy Creating Fear, Or Is Fear Creating Conspiracy?"
The simple answer is Yes, to both proposals. Oh, btw, I did check out your web page, nice layout, however, I really got a little confused with your
analogy of the "Wizard of Oz" and its' purpose to explain Creational Law?
But back on topic. Fear is a learned, experienced behavioral trait. As soon as we come into this world we are told about things that will hurt, harm
us or scare us, and also, as being quite young in this world we sometimes ignore these warnings, and experience the fact that yep, fire will burn you
if you keep your hand over the flame long enough.
So, as we learn fear, it can and does predominate many of our lives, many people suffer from a wide variety of phobias. But getting back to fear and
how we learn it. As we mature, through the capability of learning we develop emotions and reactions to many things, some things scare us, especially
the UNKNOWNS in life. This is where a conspiracy can develop, get legs and begin to frighten people. i.e. The Cold War, during the '50's,
60's, kids were taught to hide under their desks at school when they heard the siren. They practiced this, and when the siren sounded this created
I would disagree in some respect to your feelings about debating (civilly), discussing, persuading, and conflict. A persuasive discussion doesn't
have to evolve into a fight or a win/lose solution. It can lead to the sharing of knowledge, broader understanding, acceptance of new and changing
paradigms. All good stuff!
Yes, fear can create the need for dominance. Insecurity, the need to control, all based on fear.
So, basically, a conspiracy can create fear (a false flag), a diversion from the truth by creating a pseudo-fear. This can be created within yourself,
or as we have seen by cults and their leaders and undoubtedly by governments and their leaders.
That's why it is so important to be knowledgable, to be skeptical, research and find out for yourself (as best as you can). Individually, inventory
ourselves and identify what ARE our fears, discover why? disspell them if at all possible, learn to avoid worrying about things out of your control.
Focus on those things in your precious life that you can improve, progress and live a productive, happy and enriched life and hopefully along the way,
touch other peoples lives in a positive way.
Fear? Yup, it exists, it is powerful, and it can manipulate people and societies.
Thanks for the topic. I hope I brought some helpful thoughts to consider.
