    Some people are not in agreement as far as conspiracy theories.  Yet rumors abound explaining that whoever put Obama in place is pretty much controlling the US from behind the scenes. The next presidential race "they" say will be between Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton. Then we will have an "election" where Jeb wins and afterwards runs the country very badly. Then, when it counts, the left will move back into power…. slowly moving us toward socialism. We will fall for it, We will crumble.
          But, then we will bounce back into position once we know for sure what is actually going on. Right when China and Russia and whoever else thinks they have us, we'll fight back, possibly on our very soil. The statue of liberty might tumble into the sea, but her arm and torch may remain visible, raising out of the sea... and we will win the third world war.

      Well, that is a good hypothesis to say the least.   It is well thought out!

      I won't enter into the debate around the scenario, but will comment that America's most powerful weapon has always been our economy - it allowed us to gear up and successfully wage WW I and II.  Now that it is stagnant and weakening, while China and Russia are growing theirs (economies and especially their military), I am not as optimistic about the outcome of a major war.  I don't believe there is likely to be a WW type  engagement, but more "proxy wars" and low intensity conflicts.

      I used to have to dissolve things on my tongue to have conversations like this. Imagine the money I could have saved had I known HP was offering the service free of charge.

        How is this any crazier than a belief in something such as, say, the Bible?

        Really. It's completely illogical to believe in the Bible or the Koran. There's all kinds of weirdness in those books and religions. Think about it. The leader of the Catholic church wears a fish crown on his head.

        Weird ideas doesn't make a person crazy.

          This has potential for an interesting conversation.

          Weird ideas (or at least many weird ideas or even a few really weird ideas) technically do make a person crazy. I mean that's kind of the definition of crazy. It's all a matter of degrees. At a certain degree, religious belief IS an indicator of mental illness.

          There is a level of deviance from societal norms that is acceptable, once a person passes that threshold then yes, there is likely something happening up there that shouldn't be. It isn't a matter of logical verses illogical, it's a matter of abnormal thinking vs. normal thinking. Lots of concepts are illogical but still within "normal" thinking (religious beliefs and traditions fall in this category) Lot of things are logical but outside the realm of normal thinking (a lot of phobias fall into this category).

            I agree with that.

            People like me, who can't function in society and stay "down to earth" have to take meds and should get therapy.

            It's ok to have weird ideas, as long as they don't take over your life. (Like I've done). Or, if you can't control it.

              MelissaBarrettposted 4 years agoin reply to this

              True. I don't think there should be a stigma attached to it. At the same time, I think it's invaluable to get the feedback that these "weird ideas" aren't really typical. It's harsh, but that's how those individuals who do have mental illness generally become aware of it. It's a form of societal self-regulation.

                If you believe this conspiracy theory, explain why. if you do not, explain why.
                Otherwise, you are on the other side of a wall, in which case, I, for one, cannot see you.

                    Not a very nice sub conversation at all.

                    And very very very off topic.

                Actually, I never thought of it that way. Perhaps you have a good point. In my own personal experience, especially during my first "episode" I had no idea what was going on. I had no idea I was acting strangely. I didn't know till later that my boyfriend had called my mom and family over for an "intervention".

                I can self-regulate a bit more easily now, because I know the signs of the beginnings of psychosis. Still, once I'm there, I don't know what's real and what's in my mind.

    If there will be war, it will be a war of resources. I doubt it will be about some conspiracy theory.

    Even science is illogical and weird. Quantum mechanics? Particles popping into existence for no apparent reason? Far from logical, yet millions of people swear by it and accept it at face value.

      No, JS I am discussing conspiracy theories and whether or not this one is believable. Many people believe this one. To understand world affairs in this light allows one to remain calm in an increasingly mad world.

        I know. I was just saying you aren't crazy for thinking so, as others were insinuating.

        As for your theory, I don't think there is any big conspiracy. I think that there is probably major influence in politics from big corporations or other interests, but that's about as far as I think it goes.

          How much influence do they have over the going-ons in this country?

          And the real question is:
           
                                          Q.What are the influences?

    Back to the laws of nature:
    God gave man love of independence.
    Not dependance on a government.
    Ourselves.
    End of Story.

      God gave man

      Free will (or the appearance of free will)
      Natural instincts
      A sense of right and wrong

    "Common means scientifically and naturally applicable to all people. Laws of nature/ applicable to all people. Maybe it gets down to science!
    nature has laws.  if we do not follow the laws of nature we will all suffer. "

    "What laws are those? 
    What laws of nature should we follow that we are currently breaking  and causing us to suffer?"

    I don't know. I don't think science has it all figured out yet.

    repeating:
         "Without freedom to guide our wills according to this sense of independence, we humans are miserable.
    We are loving when we are free and hateful and crazy when we are not free.
          In liberty, we are willing to help out our fellows when they need our help due to a natural sense of compassion. When one is deviated through unhealthful restrictions placed by parents, society or government, love is blocked and anger resides in its place."
    I think the founding fathers would heartily agree with me. I can hear them clapping in the heavens.
    So should we all.
