please answer me, why is EVERYTHING/ EVERY EVENT a conspiracy.
Because people feel it makes them feel important, more clever than others, and they generally dont have a life outside of the internet
They think they are in the know, privy to information others arent, not a sheeple, out the box thinkers...in reality most are people who cant think for themselves or make rational decisions, they will only look at one source, the conspiracy source, others are discarded as they believe everyone is out to get them and take away their freedoms.
There are lots of mentally ill (self confessed or otherwise) people on this site. There are also a lot of children lately, as this site became more popular it attracted people more suited to playing video games or Barbie dolls. They want to feel important, and want to show their disdain for the government and authority figures.
Lots of people need a reality check, they need to get off the internet and start interacting with real people...they need their brains rebooting as they cannot see anything other than a conspiracy, due to their ignorance and lack of determination to find all sources. Its sad, especially with this Woolwich thing, the ignorance shown in some of the posts is really disturbing.
Oh yea, welcome to the site, you may have a hard time if you dont agree with the sheeple, and i mean the sheeple that think everything is a conspiracyedit on 24-5-2013 by AmberLeaf because: (no reason given)

There are some people here who do appear to think every single event posted on ATS has conspiratorial merit. They're not the thread starters but the content drivers.
And they really believe everything *is* a conspiracy.
Spot on, and it is those exact people i am talking about, who will call every single thing a conspiracy, even saying people on a video who have been injured are `actors`

While there are some people that believe using Occam's Razor in critical thinking, there are others that seem to abide by a "reverse" version of Occam's Razor which I've dubbed "Master Shake's Razor".
