Conspiracies aren’t “conspiracies” at all.
They aren’t “crazy” - It’s not the “tinfoil hat” folks who investigate or propagate them.
“Conspiracies” represent the truth. The real truth.
Why are “conspiracy theories” so fascinating, debated and (in many instances) true?
Because people lie. A lot of people.
You’re rarely going to get all of the truth about anything. That’s a given. People tell other people what they “need to know” on a given
subject - more-less instinctually as a matter of social awareness/societal norms/etc. That’s it. If you give more, you sound like me and end up
with a stream of consciousness “eureka!” moment post (long… quite long).
If you word vomit as much as I am doing right now on a sensitive subject, you’ll inadvertently share enough information to be used against you,
questioned, wondered about and more.
But, you have to use enough words to satisfy the listening party - which is the tricky part. Say too little and that invites questions…
The idea of not saying too much might actually be the point of Twitter - limit the characters such that you leave minimal room for over-sharing.
That’s an aside…
Since typically more needs to be said than a tweet, but the truth can’t/don’t/won’t be share(d)… so lies occur because you need a “story”
- enough to fill a response to something that makes it seem believable to the casual to casual plus observer.
Big things happen sometimes and agenda’s need forwarding - so you’ll need lots of lies and “stories”.
Since the masses, “Can’t handle the truth!!!” (Or it would hurt the “agenda”), the masses get lies, deception, double-talk and stories that
make them “feel good” or the story “make sense” to the minimally curious, non-critical-thinking and “pop culture”/daily life-engulfed
masses (which is most people). Most people means “the majority” which means society can basically be leveraged against itself by putting people
in the minority and socially forcing them to conform with the majority. It’s literally society being played against itself and it’s a virtually
unstoppable force because of human nature.
Thus, the “official narrative” is the truth - and the lie - all at the same time.
“Conspiracy theories” are actually just a hunt to understand “what actually is” as opposed to what people are TOLD it is.
One can’t overshare for various reasons because it could reveal true intentions/knowledge, falsehoods become endemic and foundational to forwarding
an agenda/cause/interest, truth Is kept tight (and “You can’t handle the truth!!”) - so we get lies that don’t stand up to analysis via
“Conspiracies” or “conspiracy theorist” is just a pejorative term for those “Seeking Logical or Real Truth” - which isn’t crazy in the
slightest - and (opined on by people without legitimate psychological disorders) is not in the least bit “crazy”.
“Conspiracies” only become dangerous when people blindly follow them - these are the folks who are consuming “conspiracies” the same say the
masses intake the “official narrative” - meaning without critical thought or research. These folks buy and enjoy the “fantasy” aspect of
conspiracies. It may be a form of escapism for them. These are the people who become the “crazy conspiracy theorist” who dons the tinfoil hat.
Sadly, they are kind of the “proof” we can’t handle the full truth.
For those of us who are simply seeking “what actually is”, “conspiracies” are simply an Avenue to explore. Something may have gone off in
your head one day over a given subject that says “wait a minute, that makes zero F’ing sense…” and you started looking into it. You found out
that, indeed, the thing you read makes zero F’ing sense. But why doesn’t it make sense? It should! Now you need to know why the thing that
didn’t make sense doesn’t make… sense. And down the rabbit hole to the broader truth you go - amassing tons of knowledge and developing a whole
different view of our Earthly world…. And also have to learn to live with that knowledge and still find happiness in this contrived world we live in
(a little talked about point - the side effects of “reality”…).
Next time someone says a person is a “conspiracy theorist” about something (that isn’t completely unsubstantiated) I’d say you can confidently
respond “They’re just interested in what’s really going on because human nature and society more/less is built on lies - which means the truth
is different - and not a conspiracy in the slightest.”
And certainly not crazy.
