Every good conspiracy theorist out there believes that he or she is on a quest for the truth and avoiding the “brainwashing” effect of the government’s tactics to continue to ask questions and look for facts in the chaos and disorder of disinformation. You would think that this would have the government concerned. However, not only do conspiracy theories not worry the government, but they actually make it feel better.
Say what? Yeah, we said it. Despite all of our efforts to stay dedicated to the cause of truth and revealing these conspiracies, the reality is that we are actually helping their cause. That’s a crappy reality, but we couldn’t be real about what we are doing if we couldn’t admit it to ourselves. First of all, if we were such a threat, we would be eliminated. Look in history. Governments have never hesitated to eliminate voices of dissent. This is America, though, you say. We have freedom of speech. Well, we do. We also have unparalleled freedom to take a bullet if we get out of line. And believe you me, if we do, we’ll get one. But the government is not the least bit concerned about us. There are a couple of reasons for that.
First of all, the government uses the media to brainstorm mainstream America into thinking that anyone that does not accept the government’s account of things as gospel is crazy or maligned. Those crazy conspiracy theorists, they say around the water cooler and chuckle. Can you believe they have the nerve to question the government? Can you believe they don’t lap up everything the government tells them like a cat drinks milk from a bowl? Silly people. Sounds a little ridiculous, but it’s true. The overwhelming majority of Americans believe that most conspiracy theorists are from quacks. Conspiracy theorists as a whole bring some of this on themselves. There are plenty of quacks out there, the so-called “tin foil hat” crowd, and there comes with them a myriad of quack theories. Common Sense Conspiracy tries to fight this as you all know, but it certainly exists. However, the government doesn’t quarantine conspiracy theorists by having us whacked, rounding us up into concentration camps, or finding ways to imprison us. They do it by quarantining us within the population. The government doesn’t have to do it; the brainwashing by the media and the government causes conspiracy theorists to be outcasts from society. The people do the government’s work for them by alienating those that don’t go with the flow. It’s quite possibly the most successful government program of all time; the results are astoundingly against us.
Secondly, the government benefits from the fact that conspiracy theorists simply don’t have access to the information to make a fully-coalesced theory. They can’t help it. They can only question things, question contradictions in the official account of things, but they cannot prove it. Of course, if we could prove any of the conspiracy theories that exist, then we would be a real problem for the government and its agenda. In reality, we can’t, they know we can’t, and those that offer up theories as “factual” only support the government’s program of spreading enough disinformation that it simply becomes easier to believe their account of things than to try to filter through the bullshit theories, as we like to say in our slogan. They can sit back with their arms folded across their chest and say “Look at them, they can’t even agree on their own theories.” And they’re right, but ultimately, they are the reason for that.
Look at 9/11. The theories about this event are endless. And yet, the government is wholly unconcerned. Why? Because by and large, the American people simply accept what happened and move on. If there was a massive conspiracy, most Americans would simply rather not know. Easier to believe than to be forced to accept that our government murdered its own citizens to help demonize Muslims in the American culture. Sandy Hook is another example. The accounts are so contradictory and numbered that no one can even get close to the truth. The disinformation trumps the real information, and pretty soon, no one even remembers anything except it was a tragedy and something must be done.
It’s unfortunate, but conspiracy theories are actually beneficial to our government, and that’s why they keep them around. So, should we stop looking for the truth?
Of course not. But we must understand that we are a cog in the wheel of the very machine we despise, and there is little that we can do about it.
