Why is it a ludicrous idea that much of what we hear and see on the mainstream, corporate owned 'news' networks is constructed and presented in such a manner to elicit a narrow, singular viewpoint? It seems like they want everyone on the same perceptional page.
"We've thought this out for you...ignore the gaping holes and questionable logic of the story we present here; this is your official version...anything not of this version is crackpot conspiracy theory, DO NOT give any attention to anyone that asks questions about the official corporate stamped version".
That is American public thought today. "Do not pay attention to that man behind the curtain!"
I'm an experienced, multi-degreed, truth seeker. My tinfoil-hat has tassles on it and I wear it backwords hip-hop style. Even I roll my eyes in bored bewilderment when I hear or read someone speaking of "The New World Order' or 'Illuminati'. I think to myself, that person is a rookie in conspiracy theory. Any experienced truth worker knows that the #1 deceptive tool of conspirators is distraction and deflection. Anyone who has studied history knows that what's happening today isn't to bring on some 'New World Order'. All manipulated and exploited events and policies are employed to further entrench the old world order.
There indeed may be some Satan worshiping cult of powerful people that call themselves 'The Illuminati' . But that doesn't mean they wield the power we've been conditioned to believe they have. I see them more as a boogieman. A meme that feeds on itself, which ultimately leads no where. No, the real powers that be are compartmentalized, competitive, owners of people and the resources of whole nations. Their allegiances are determined by the dynamics of power and profit...not to some secret oath or vision of a "New World Order". Those in power are more loyal to Machiavelli's principles of power than they are to some silly, luciferian oath to a secret masonic order. Conspiracy theorists are human just like all of us...and that means that many are not immune to titillation and fanciful fantasies of some dark oath adherent actors affecting world events.
Simply put, 'the powers that be, the 'ruling elites' only obedience is to remaining in power and controlling land and resources. Their allegiances shift faster than those in the Godfather movie. These are not juvenile, mostly male kids who are beholden to some 'secret oath' like Spanky and Our Gang's "He-man Woman Haters Club". It's time for us conspiracy theorists to grow up. Power and profit are the light that the controlling moths of the world are attracted to, not membership in some 'secret society'. All of their nefarious secret and hidden machinations are solely to maintain power and profit, unspeakable profit. They are expert in creating exploitative events and exploiting events not of their creation...all for the maximization of their power and profits.
Before I close this...I have to address the Obama Fema camps conspiracy theory. I personally don't think those camps were constructed to contain American dissidents...yet. I truly think that the original purpose was to be prepared post Katrina for any mass disaster where many people need to be evacuated. The Bush administration took a lot of heat for FEMA not being prepared for mass evacuating and housing thousands of people. Now, that is not to say that those FEMA camps can't be used for some dubious motives in the future. But given the Boston lock-down last week, it's pretty apparent that large prison camps won't really be needed given the fact that the government/corporate security apparatus can convince people to lock themselves into their own homes and adhere to illegal search and seizures. As long as the media can beat the drumbeat of fear, Prison camps are unnecessary.
I'll be addressing much more conspiracy theory and history. Delving much deeper into the corporate/government media conditioning and programming, 9/11, Boston and much more. I invite you to explore these topics with me, have the discussion. I've discovered that whenever a population stops questioning, stops probing the edges and ciphering out the benefactors behind the events and responses to events... then we've become little more than sheep who can be told anything.
Keep an open mind my friends
