Its all a big conspiracy!

July 17th, 2020 · Posted by Skuds in Life · No Comments · Life

I try to keep an open mind generally, but I don’t have a lot of time for conspiracy theories and usually dismiss them immediately because they are just so obviously preposterous. I’m sure there are conspiracies, in the sense that there are people conspiring in quite boring ways, but nobody talks about them. They are interested in the more sensational and far less plausible theories, the ones involving Elvis, aliens and the CIA.

Now I am willing to accept that with hundreds or thousands of sensational conspiracy theories, there is a chance, even if only a small one, that one of those theories might be right, even if only partly right. Even if each individual theory is almost certainly bollocks, one of them could actually be true even if it is just by chance.

At the moment my money would probably be on something to do with the Epstein business but that is cheating because its pretty clear there was a conspiracy there; the sensational bit is the speculation about how many people were involved and if any of them were famous. And I am talking about Epstein conspiring with people, not about the Clintons or Trump having him killed, depending on your personal politics,  or any of the other more cranky theories about him.

What I really can’t understand is why so few people are convinced by a particular theory and only that theory. How come if you believe that there are aliens in Area 51 you apparently also believe in chemtrails, 5G spreading coronavirus, 9/11 being done by the CIA, the moon landing being faked, Obama not being American, Sandy Hook being a false flag attack and Elvis shooting JFK? It is like all or nothing with crank conspiracy theories.

What really worries me is that if just one of the more odd theories turned out to contain even a significant bit of truth, it would convince the believe-it-all brigade that it means everything else has to be true too, and turn a lot of others to the same ideas. Really the world is mad enough at the moment.
