Conspiracy Theories: Why Do We Avoid the Truth
Updated: Apr 5, 2020
I always thought my first blog post would be about something spiritual in nature. And in a way this may actually fit that description. So much is happening in the world right now, whether it's the Corona virus, military conflicts, natural disasters, or economic turmoil, it's hard to argue that we aren't currently experiencing some form of global shift. The spiritual side of me wants to trust that everything is happening for a reason and that the nature of our civilization is unfolding just as it should in perfect chaos. But I also feel like a portion of that chaos insists that I share my outlook on the world as I see it, and this seems to be as good a time as any to share my thoughts.
Keeping quiet due to fear of Judgement
In the past I'd always avoided sharing any controversial views or perspectives that would challenge conventional beliefs about our society. This resistance was due to an underlying fear of being judged by others or being labeled as a conspiracy theorist. But lately things have gotten so out of control that I can't not speak up, and I feel like more and more people are feeling the same way.
Oliver Emberton once said, "If you're not pissing someone off, you probably aren't doing anything important" So here goes.
To a large portion of the population that's been regularly conditioned to follow the normal everyday media outlets, the term "Conspiracy Theory" immediately discredits any statement that follows or precedes it, regardless of how much truth or factual evidence is presented. Some people will probably even avoid reading this article just because of the headline. The term itself has accumulated so much stigma, that anyone who's not completely open to suggestions or new ideas would rarely want to associate themselves with it.
The fact is, that until an idea has reached critical mass, the majority of people will always side with popular belief so as not to look foolish in front of their peers in case the idea is proven to be wrong. If you're not familiar, the term critical mass is the percentage of a population that's generally needed to emphatically support an idea before the rest of the population embraces and spreads it for the masses to follow. It's for this reason we are oftentimes referred to as sheep, "baaa."
Even if one of these unconventional ideas happens to bring up a valid inquiry, unless it is widely accepted, most people will avoid any association with it out of fear of being judged by the masses. Unfortunately, in the same way, even if an idea is outdated and illogical, the majority of people will tend to continue to support it out of habit and reluctance to change the status quo. People like their comfort zone, and generally don't support change if it requires substantial effort in adopting a new way of thinking.
And down the rabbit hole we go.
Some years ago, after taking the so called "red pill" it became apparent to me that there existed a dark side to our world that was so unimaginable that I just couldn't come to terms with it. But I knew that was no excuse to avoid it, so I continued on digging deeper.
Now I like to think that I'm a pretty reasonable guy, and I don't specifically set out to try and find things wrong with the world. I don't watch the news everyday to secretly hope for terrible shit to happen just so I feel better about myself. I'm not the guy who slows down to zero when driving by the scene of an accident to stop and stare at someone's misfortune. I generally avoid drama within my everyday life and strive for a more or less peaceful state of mind. But the evidence I was seeing was so profound that I couldn't just ignore it or write it off as conspiracy.
I first became aware of these "theories" 8 years ago through a documentary that opened my eyes to a different perspective on how the world works. These ideas set out to question the actual narrative of certain events throughout history such as World Wars I & II, the Vietnam war, 9/11, mass shootings and other world catastrophes. They also question some of our most trusted organizations such as Media outlets, the FDA, CIA, CDC, NSA, SEC and The Federal Reserve just to name a few.
I'll admit after diving in head first and unearthing more and more conspiracies, the fear began to take hold of me. I became very cynical of every organization, country and political agenda to where I felt like I was just waiting for WW3 to begin. I even became an entry level "prepper" getting ready for the pending apocalypse, although I'll admit, toilet paper was not on my list of survival items.
Eventually I started to notice this obsession was taking a negative toll on my mind and body and decided I needed to back away. I canceled cable, stopped watching the news and started myself down a path of physical, mental and spiritual growth in order to improve my well being. I eventually adopted the attitude that everything would work itself out through the natural course of life, and I could continue to focus on traveling and creating positive experiences for myself.
That is up until the last month or so. It's funny how situations don't ever seem to be a real issue until they're affecting you directly. Now here I am being forced to follow the news and fear for my life, again. Except this time around I feel slightly wiser and more mentally stable. I've done some spiritual and emotional work and I'm now able to navigate through this shit storm in a fairly calm mental state.
I ultimately decided that a major reason we're on this planet is to experience all of the drama that life has to offer. If that means I'm supposed to man up and face some of the deepest, darkest parts of humanity then so be it. Sometimes a person can get so lost in their spiritual journey through meditation and seclusion, that they forget to actually experience the life in front of them. This is where the learning and growth happens, although meditation and mindfulness is a great way to prepare for that and I highly suggest it. One of my favorite Ram Dass quotes is, "If you think you're enlightened, go spend a week with your family"
"Be a product of your own conclusions"- Jim Rohn
I'll be the first to admit there is an extraordinary amount of misinformation present in the world today. And that's coming from all perspectives, whether it's conspiracy theorists, the national news, your hairdresser Katie, and even the government. I think that our job is to gather as much information as possible and make our own conclusions as to what makes most sense to us logically or just feels right through our intuition. This includes questioning the integrity of every piece of info that we come across. With all of the information flowing through your social media feeds right now, that's important to keep in mind.
That being said, let's get into the weird shit.
In our recent history, there are numerous documented instances of countries carrying out false flag operations for the purpose of provoking war on false pretenses as well as provoking racial tensions to cause division, inciting violence by fueling riots, instigating tensions between governments; the list goes on. These tactics are commonly used to convince large populations to get on board with the agenda at hand through outrage or fear. This is normally done through controlled media propaganda that can easily sway the masses when fear takes over. Think 9/11 and the subsequent invasion of Iraq.
"You can sway a thousand men by appealing to their prejudices, quicker than you can convince one man by logic" - Robert A. Heinlein
Come on, everyone's doing it.
The list of countries that have admittedly been caught using these tactics include: The United States, Russia, Japan, Nazi Germany, Turkey, Italy, The U.K., Israel, Egypt, Quebec, Columbia, Indonesia, among others. This is not some conspiracy theory, this is a real thing, and it's been used throughout the world for centuries dating back to the Greek and Roman Empires before the term propaganda was even coined.
There are countless websites documenting these false flag operations; here is a link to a specific site which also includes other links for supporting evidence. Oddly enough, in most cases, the country's representatives have openly admitted this. Including our own government in which the 9/11 commission admitted that the main justification for invading Iraq on the premise that they contained weapons of mass destruction, was completely fabricated.
In my opinion, all other conspiracies aside, the official narrative of what occurred on September 11th, 2001 is enough to make anyone question what's actually taking place in this country. Recent polls have shown that close to 55% of Americans think our government is concealing information about what actually took place that day.
Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth is comprised of over 3000 professionals trying to find answers to this official delusive explanation of what happened. These are upstanding, highly educated members of society. They're not some crazy kooks sitting in their basements wearing tinfoil hats and drumming up outlandish conspiracy theories.
So the point of this article isn't to go on about the countless examples of lies and deception by the many countries in this world including our own. It's because it sets a premise for the integrity of the entire system. Why should we trust or have faith in any organization when they've already lied to us multiple times?
At what point are we any different than a victim of spousal abuse that keeps going back to their abuser because "things will be different this time." To famously quote one of the worst rated presidents in our country's history, "Fool me once, shame on--shame on you. Fool me twice-- [pauses] is it shame on me? . . . You fool me-- you can't get fooled again." - George W. Bush.
De-nile is not just a river in Egypt.
So why is it that we as a society are so vehemently in denial that any of this type of deception could be happening right in front of us? Maybe it's because those of us that are such genuinely compassionate beings, just couldn't wrap our minds around the possibility of such atrocities being done by a group of people to their fellow humans. Things so horrific that even if we had the opportunity to witness them with our own eyes would still render us in disbelief.
Or worse, maybe some of us do know and accept what's going on behind the scenes yet choose to ignore it because it hasn't really affected us or our loved ones on a personal level yet. I'll admit that over the last few years I've actually fallen into this category.
Fast forward to where we are now. Currently the story is, that there is a global pandemic that's threatening the survival of our species and forcing us to avoid contact with anyone outside of our families. So we're confined to our homes, many of us terrified, just watching the news and the daily death count.
Now I'll be the first to admit, I have absolutely no clue what's actually happening. Nor will I claim that this is some sort of hoax without knowing any of the facts. I've already known people who have contracted the virus and successfully recovered so I know it's not completely fabricated. But I also don't know much about the testing process or the severity of the virus to make any conclusions.
One thing I do know without a doubt is that I have every right in my being to question absolutely everything that I don't completely believe in. And if I happen to see any discrepancy in media coverage, or perhaps come across conflicting arguments from other sources that bring up a new, interesting perspective, then I will do my best to logically come up with my own theory as to what is actually going on. Until then, I'll rely on my instincts, which unfortunately tell me that there's more to the story than what's being told.
And if there's a possibility that 5-G cell towers have the abilities to melt my brain through high level frequencies then I will leave that on the table as well. Because when it comes down to it, we really don't know shit about the entirety of this reality.
The visible light spectrum that we ourselves witness this world through makes up a whopping .0035% of the entire electromagnetic spectrum. So if we are solely relying on our eyeballs to tell whats real and not real on this planet right now then we may be flying blind.
If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the problem.
If anyone has seen the movie The Boondock Saints, there is a quote that comes to mind. At the beginning of the movie there is a priest holding service that recites the story of a girl who was attacked and stabbed to death in broad daylight, as passerby walked on without so much as calling the police. He preaches, "Now, we must all fear evil men. But there is another kind of evil . . . which we must fear most, and that is the indifference of good men."
I've always just assumed that the truth comes out eventually, and all will be revealed in due time. But what I failed to realize is that I'm a part of this world and as an active member of society I feel like it's my place to speak up and be heard.
There are so many whistle blowers out there risking their lives as well as their careers to speak out for the greater good in what they believe is right. The least I can do is share the message with others to support them in questioning the integrity of every person, organization, or government that has any control or jurisdiction over the food, water supply, healthcare, currency, freedoms and overall livelihood of everyone on the planet.
I understand that not everyone speaking out is credible, and that some are posting content for personal gain, fame, or money. But I also think there are many brave people standing up for what they believe in.
Much of the evidence is so overwhelming that it can't just be written off as conspiracy theory, and we should create another term altogether to reveal it for what it is, exposing the truth that we've all been ignoring far too long. The assassination of JFK; The Vietnam war; 9/11 and the subsequent invasion of Iraq. None of these are conspiracy theories in my eyes. They are atrocities to mankind and people need to be held accountable, or it will continue to happen.
Now I'll be the first to point out that I'm not familiar with every Conspiracy out there, but the ones I've been exposed to in the recent weeks have been extremely interesting to say the least. The concept of 5-G mind control, and the possibility that CoVid-19 was released intentionally for the purpose of pushing a mandatory vaccine agenda are very concerning theories and I pray that's not the case. But that doesn't mean it's not in the back of my mind.
The idea of the Illuminati is nothing new to me. Even the fact that my word program just now forced me to capitalize the word Illuminati makes me question how deep their influence runs.
The widely followed theory as of late, is one of a satanic ritual cult that encompasses much of Hollywood and involves a child sex trafficking ring. It is deeply disturbing and according to many sources also in the works of currently being exposed.
If you watch the YouTube video it seems almost unbelievable, although It's hard to completely discredit the possibility. Human trafficking is unfortunately a very real problem, and It's currently happening all across the world, in our very own country as well as my home state of Ohio. The evidence appears to be very convincing, and honestly the only thing that makes it so hard to believe is how incredibly insane it all is. There's just no words.
We live in a crazy world that has removed all doubt of what is possible.
As much as I maintain a skeptical outlook and always try to research the facts on my own, I can't definitively rule out the possibility of any of the theories I just mentioned. To be honest, if I heard a knock at my door and opened it to find a little green extraterrestrial trying to sell me cookies I'm not sure if I'd even be shocked; maybe a little surprised but not shocked.
That's how crazy the world is right now. Everything is on the table as far as I'm concerned.
And another aspect to keep in mind is motive. Some of the people putting an enormous amount of effort to expose these conspiracies are very dedicated. Especially the ones meticulously fact checking and producing the documentaries.
Always consider the motive behind every action.
I could see the argument that they're making money and gaining notoriety or followings and this may be true, but some of these people have received death threats for the information they're exposing. I just don't see the trade off being that enviable to make a bit of money, or gain a social media following through some elite level trolling.
On the other hand, the motives of these wealthy elites, government organizations and corporations are very believable. They have every reason to distort, manipulate, control and even take lives if they have to. Make no mistake, the addiction to wealth and power is very real and people will do anything to get more of it. We've all witnessed enough examples on a smaller scale in our own lives. There's no reason to deny the possibility of something worse on a larger scale.
In short, I don't mean to suggest that you believe everything you see and hear. But I would invite you to keep an open mind to any and all possibilities instead of discrediting anything not widely accepted or shown on national news outlets. Propaganda is a very real thing and has been for sometime. People forget it was less than 70 years ago that doctors were recommending Lucky Strikes as the healthy cigarette alternative. Imagine what our grand children will be talking about in another 70 years.
To quote Jim Rohn again, "Be a product of your own conclusions." Do the research and weigh out all possibilities of the information you ingest and then use your judgment to come up with your own logical explanation.
Don't be afraid to speak your mind and share your ideas.
I'll be the first to admit I have absolutely no clue exactly what's happening right now but I have a strong feeling that there's more to the current story than what the current narrative has led us to believe. And I believe it's our right to question everything regardless of other peoples opinions of us or how crazy we may appear to be.
The fact is, even if only a small percentage of the ideas that I just listed are true then we have some serious problems we need to confront and it's time we all wake up collectively to open our eyes a little.
We are destroying this planet we call home.
We're polluting our oceans and water supply, polluting our atmosphere, decimating the rain forest, and disrupting the entire balance of the ecosystem on this planet.
We murder people in mass quantities by the guise of liberation, or national security.
We are killing our own people through the toxic chemically processed foods, pesticides, and pharmaceutical drugs we ingest daily that are all somehow continuously approved by the FDA.
We're hopelessly addicted to instant gratification through drugs, alcohol, social media likes, and material possessions that it's actually making us sick, mentally and physically.
We've slowly drifted away from our connection to ourselves as well as mother nature and I am 100% convinced we are being forced to stop and take a look at what we're doing.
It's as if the universe is forcing us to wake up and experience a collective purge of the dark parts of our human existence. This is our dark night of the soul. We're lost, at a crossroads and it's time to wake up. One thing is for certain though, things are changing in 2020.
(Down below I've included links to many of the YouTube videos and documentaries that I find very informative, as well as other interesting articles and bits of information. Absorb the info and come to your own conclusions on what makes sense to you)
-- Investigations into FDA physician advisers accepting large sums of money from pharmaceutical companies for "research funds." Slight conflict of interest there.
-- New Harvard study revealing Institutional Corruption of Pharmaceuticals and how FDA cannot be trusted with public safety
-- Their relationship with Coca Cola, an industry that's linked to about 180,000 deaths per year worldwide.

Here are some examples of fabricated media coverage or "Fake news"
-- Staged gathering of Muslims to portray their mourning of the London attacks.
