What Conspiracy??

A dear anonymous friend told me recently that I should stop making up conspiracy theories, because, as everyone knows, conspiracies simply do not exist.

Really now?

Let's take the time to define the word "Conspire".

From Merriam Webster:

Main Entry: con·spire
Function: verb
Inflected Form(s): con·spired; con·spir·ing
Etymology: Middle English, from Anglo-French conspirer, from Latin conspirare to be in harmony, conspire, from com- + spirare to breathe
transitive verb : PLOT, CONTRIVE

1 a : to join in a secret agreement to do an unlawful or wrongful act or an act which becomes unlawful as a result of the secret agreement b : SCHEME

2 : to act in harmony toward a common end


So what does the law say about conspiracy?

According to 18 USC 371:

To establish the offense of 'conspiracy' the Government must prove:

(1) That two or more persons in some way or manner, came to a mutual understanding to try to accomplish a common and unlawful plan, as charged in the indictment; (2) That the person willfully became a member of such conspiracy; (3) That one of the conspirators during the existence of the conspiracy knowingly committed at least one of the methods (or 'overt acts') described in the indictment; and (4) That such 'overt act' was knowingly committed at or about the time alleged in an effort to effect or accomplish some object or purpose of the conspiracy.

Alrighty then.

So we know what conspiracy is.

And if we apply the definitions given above, then there is a whole hell of a lot of conspiracy going on in the world today.

So with that being said, I want to list some lesser known conspiracies of interest:

The North American Union

The European Union

The Project

The Feminist movement

And on top of that, I offer you the following video programs that discuss the existance of secret societies at length:

Megiddo I: March to Armageddon

Jordan Maxwell Exposes the Illuminati


The UN Deception

While I don't believe everything that these films touch on, I have, through independent reading and study, come to the conclusion that...

In real life, as in dreams,

Nothing is as it seems.

So yes Virginia, there are such things as conspiracies!

I was talking to someone a while back about being prepared for disasters and food or water shortages and said something like:

"Most peoples attitudes towards any possible disaster is 'I'll worry about it when the time comes'. And when the time does come, everyone trying to do the same thing at once creates panic and shortage".

Similar thing with conspiracy theories. Joe public is not interested in having his world burdened with anything that isn't happening right now and is not interfering with his way of life. And most peoples lives are about getting self-gratification as soon as possible even if it harms them in the long run.

The few who look ahead and try to warn of impending dangers are always seen as party poopers, paranoids or cranks. When the catastrophe does arrive they, or at least the warnings they gave are simply forgotten about in the panic of the moment.

Winston Churchill would be a prime example of this. He repeatedly warned about the dangers of Hitler and became politically isolated as a result (yes, I realize there were other factors as well). But no one looks back on WW II as a conspiracy theory now do they? But that's exactly what it was to most people in 1936.

I suppose this could also be an inbuilt drawback to the way most history is presented. Everything is easy to see in hindsight as they say.

Most people tend to think that no one could never possibly lie to them, deceive them, or betray them.

A lot of people are simply trying to make it in a cruel and harsh world.

Today at the office, my co-workers finally got it.

I asked them to google the North American Union, and also for them to read about the Princeton report about the voting machines that could have been possibly hacked.

They wanted to know why they never heard about these stories. (I know the voting machine thing was publicized fairly well, but good luck finding mainstream media coverage about the North American Union).

After reading for themselves, they got it.

It's up to us who know, to inform those who do not know.

Knowledge is power, and blogs such as ours make sure that power flows outward, leveling the playing field as it were.

It's why I blog.
