Why I am no longer willing to be called a conspiracy theorist?
Don't call me a Conspiracy Theorist any more
The main bulk of what is written below represents my views when I was happy enough to be classed as a conspiracy theorist but this is no longer the case. I used to faithfully follow the works of David Icke and tune in to the Alex Jones Show but those days are gone.
Some of you reading this will no doubt disagree with me. Others will think I have come to my senses at last! I have come to realise that many truthers and conspiracy theorists are only happy hearing what is in agreement with what their 'gurus' have told them. It is almost cult-like devotion shown to these authors and speakers.
I am leaving this hub as it was originally published when it was called "Why I am happy to be called a Conspiracy Theorist?", apart from this introduction and footnote at the end. It is a record of how I used to think in my personal quest for the truth. What you can read below represents how I used to think but what I have moved on from.
Conspiracy theory guru David Icke
The label conspiracy theorist
The term conspiracy theorist has become widely used recently to discredit people and has become associated with "cranks" and crazy ideas. Many people appear to be ashamed to be labelled as a believer in conspiracy theory but not me. Like Davd Icke says when he uses the term "conspiracy factist" my experience and research has shown me that much of the material covered by writers and speakers on the subject is the truth. It is not theory but is reality whether you like it or not!
There are so many things wrong with the modern world that we know shouldn't be the way they are and yet they have been allowed to get that way. I am sure you can think of plenty. Many years ago my inquisitive nature caused me to ask why is the world like this? What is causing so many things to go wrong? Why with all the new technology and advances does the world become more violent and why are more people living in terrible circumstances? Why is the environment being destroyed? Why are animals subjected to the most barbaric cruelty and why this becoming more common? Why is our food and drink full of toxic substances? Why is so much of the news bad?
UFOs and aliens
Besides these questions there are the mysteries of the UFO, alien races and whether they exist and the whole subject area loosely defined as "paranormal." Why have these things been so often ridiculed by science and the media?
Why is it that occult symbols from astrology and elsewhere and mythical beasts like dragons and unicorns are displayed in architecture, company logos and heraldic crests. If all this stuff isn't real why do the royal families, the aristocracy, the churches and big businesses all use these symbols?
One thing is very clear we are not presented with the whole truth by our education, the media, by authority figures, by science, by religions and by politics. The more you question, the more you find that needs questioning. As the late John Lennon once pleaded in a song of his "All I want is the truth, just give me some truth."
If I look at all the poisons in our food and even in our water supply, I am bound to ask why it is like this? Why was it not like this when I was a child? Why did tap water not have fluoride in it? Why did we not have poisonous aspartame and monosodium glutamate in so many products but do so now?
Why was the world safer? Why were little children a lot safer?Why are they not now?
Why did local communities help the members of those communities? Why do people nowadays often not even know their neighbours?
Why is it that millions of people pray to gods and deities that never answer their prayers and yet the believers still believe?
Why is it that it doesn't make any difference who wins the elections - the world conditions still get worse and whatever promises have been made are broken?
Why were there so many more birds, animals, wild flowers and insects about but not any more? Where have all the flowers gone? Where have all the bees gone?
Why was it that when I was child and a young man that cancer was a rare disease, one you had heard about but the chances are you didn't know anyone who had it or had died from it? Why is it that now it is common and very day there are news stories of public figures who are being treated or have died from the disease? Why is this when years and years and billions have been spent researching a cancer cure?
If I look at the world as it is now, it is a world full of chaos, of suffering, of disease, of death, disorder, insanity and fear.Has it been manipulated to be like this? I am sure it has.
At the same time the gulf between the fabulously wealthy and the terribly poor grows and grows. Is it all about money? Is money really the "root of all evil?" I think not!
I could go on and on and on asking questions and I am sure you too could add plenty of your own.
So faced with all these questions I turned to reading and listening to the alternative historians and conspiracy theorists who gave me answers for why the world is in the alarming mess it is. People like Jordan Maxwell, David Icke, Michael Tsarion and Alex Jones are men who have asked the same questions and have spent years of their lives seeking out the answers and presenting their findings. I am very sure that none of them have it all perfectly right but they are all well worth consulting if you want to know what is going on.
New World Order
I learned about a group of people known as the Illuminati and about their plan for an Orwellian New World Order. I learned about how we the people are thought of as no more than "useless eaters" and "cannon fodder" to these people and how they are planning to eliminate most of us.
It then adds up as to why the food and water is full of poisons that don't have to be there. It adds up as to why so many people are ill and dying. It makes sense why medical treatments and drugs so often fail to cure people. The elite who run the world don't want people to get well. They don't want more of us living happy healthy lives. They want us to die off.
Why is that every year we are bombarded with the latest flu epidemic scare? Why is that people who do not get flu shots do not get flu?
Manic Street Preachers
As The Manic Street Preachers once sang: "We all need and are taught to need another invented diease."
Why is there more cancer? Because it has been engineered that way to get rid of people. Makes sense to me.
I learned about how these Illuminati elite are practising occultists and how we live in their occult rituals on a grand scale but are not even aware of it. I learned how war victims can be blood sacrifices at specific times. I learned how there are indeed evil forces and beings at the top of the power pyramid and whether they are called demons or reptilians doesn't really matter. That they exist and that those in control serve and are controlled by them and make sacrifices and perform ceremonies to them is a reality as far as I can determine.
I learned that the world is being made as it is by all of us and that the ones that run it have to get our consent for it to be the way it is. This they do with their skilful manipulation of the media and by causing fear, by creating a problem and then offering us the solution, by keeping us divided up by race, creed, politics etc. I learned that there are actually and factually far more of us the people than they the keepers and jailers of humanity. They only have their wealth and power because we have allowed it. They have taken advantage of the world's populations.
So there it is, a summary of some reasons I am happy to study conspiracy theory and be called a conspiracy theorist.
UPDATE 22 February 2012: Please note that since I first published this my views have changed and I have found myself moving away from a lot of this sort of material. I am no longer happy to be called a conspiracy theorist.
