    On Believing Conspiracy Theories

    The European Conservative

    The Delingpod, the podcast of James Delingpole, English libertarian journalist gone ‘barmy conspiracy theorist,’ is probably some of the best and most edifying listening out there at the moment. According to Delingpole, we are moving towards a global totalitarian social credit system through the emerging of a cashless economy and the intrusion of political measures into every part of civil society and private life, and the means to orchestrate this scheme are lockdowns and ‘death jabs’ (his term for COVID vaccines), which will eventually lead to an insect-eating slave population at the service of a ‘cabal’ that now runs ‘big pharma,’ ‘big tech,’ ‘big media,’ and the ‘deep state.’

    And Delingpole might be right.

    Of course, one should be cautious with conspiracy theories. After all, nearly everything I know, I know on trust. I cannot possibly verify by empirical experience and experimentation all on which I claim to possess certainty. I simply accept the received wisdom which my education and wider society has handed me, and I could not navigate my way through this life if I adopted a habitual attitude of suspicion towards such information. I must believe that what I see and what I am told is—on the whole—how things are, unless I have some reasonable reason for thinking otherwise. All knowledge, in the end, is belief, even if only belief in the relative objectivity of the data provided to our minds by our senses. Were I to hold that everything could be explained by reference to a secret treacherous plot, I would risk going mad.

    Whilst we ought to have a predisposition towards trust and belief, and correspondingly a predisposition not to be sceptical (apart from some scepticism towards conspiracy theories), on the other hand the idea of conspiracy must be part of our account of our world if we are to render it intelligible. Conspiracy is, of course, a major motif of literature. We all know how, in ‘the Scottish play,’ Macbeth ascended to the throne, and how King Duncan lost that throne to Macbeth. Shakespeare’s account bears little resemblance to the real history of these kings, but the role of conspiracy fits so well in the play because the conspiracy is credible. In more recent times, the idea of governmental conspiracy against society has come to the fore as an important theme of Western literature. Orwell’s 1984, Huxley’s Brave New World, and Benson’s Lord of the World are all obvious examples. Again, these stories work as conspiracy narratives precisely because they are credible, and they are credible because we know that conspiracies really do happen. The last century was indeed packed with governmental conspiracies, especially in the Eastern Bloc.

    Conspiracy is a central principle in the repertoire of the historian. If the historian does not take the idea of conspiracy seriously, he cannot understand history. I am not talking here about odd, revisionist accounts of history; I mean mainstream historical research. From Julius Caesar’s death by the senators’ knives to Hitler’s Night of the Long Knives, we can make sense of history—including many of its pivotal moments—only by having recourse to the idea of conspiracy. (...)

    Rest at the above link.
    The sense of honor is of so fine and delicate a nature that
    it is only to be met with in minds which are naturally noble or
    cultivated by good examples and a refined education.
    - Sir Richard Steele

    The enemy loves his mind games. If you believe something to be true or suspicious, never accept having it labeled a "conspiracy theory," because that is a mechanism for automatically discrediting the thing in peoples' minds. The enemy has conditioned the masses themselves to cast suspicion upon his critics to avoid their scrutiny. It's a sophisticated psychological game, based upon science, and unless you have studied their methods, it's likely to completely escape your notice.

    I find the "flat earthers" and those who think the moon landing was fake to be suspicious themselves. It is possible, if not likely, that the enemy has propagated these ridiculous ideas as lightning rods to draw the attention of those who are "conspiracy minded" away from the real things, and as a straw man to use to discredit people who are onto them by comparing them to idiots. Average minds will be psychologically discouraged from listening to any logical argument you then produce, even if it is blatantly obvious. You can show them video of the Event 201 Pandemic Exercise from late 2019, and instead of finding it suspicious, they will write you off as a "conspiracy theorist," so deeply have they been programmed.

    What may awaken you more than anything else are the writings of Edward Bernays. He laid out the foundation for the manipulation of the mass psyche, and people have been refining that behind the scenes ever since. It matters little to them if the minority of people with INTJ personalities and high IQs can see through them, because so long as they can keep these people poor and discredit them, the brainwashed masses under their control will march in whichever direction they are led.

    The greatest ever lie - the HOLOHOAX . Truth never needs enforced protection.


    Germar Rudolf

    Germar Rudolf, a German citizen, was born in 1964 in Limburg, Germany. He has a university degree in Chemistry. Rudolf became a revisionist in 1991 and has written and edited numerous books and articles about the "Holocaust" subject. In 1995 a German court sentenced Rudolf to 14 months in prison for his first revisionist book, the "Rudolf Report" on chemical and technical questions of the alleged Auschwitz gas chambers. After the supreme court of his country had confirmed the sentence in 1996, Rudolf went into exile, first to the UK, then to the U.S. In spite of his officially recognized marriage to a U.S. citizen, Rudolf was deported back to Germany in 2005, where he was put on trial again, this time for his revisionist book "Lectures on the Holocaust." After having served his accumulated prison terms of 44 months, he eventually managed to immigrated once more to the U.S. to join his U.S. wife and daughter.

    For those who don't know, the first two verses of this song are the secret service speaking to the person under surveillance. The third verse, is the person speaking back to the secret service.

    Indeed, it is funny because the enemy itself spread things that could potentially even more so be labelled as conspiracy theory in the way they use it, if it was applied non-arbitrary.

It is possible, if not likely, that the enemy has propagated these ridiculous ideas as lightning rods to draw the attention of those who are "conspiracy minded" away from the real things, and as a straw man to use to discredit people who are onto them by comparing them to idiots.
    About the later it is kind of funny that only became big after the movie Capricon One, which is about a faked manned mission to Mars.

    What may awaken you more than anything else are the writings of Edward Bernays. He laid out the foundation for the manipulation of the mass psyche, and people have been refining that behind the scenes ever since.
    Of course it was already being developed behind the scenes to begin with. He was of course one of the first to talk about it relatively openly. And his books is a good start to learn more about how those select few who seek to mold public opinion operate. One can also see it in the Social Media crackdown that got in to full swing since 2016 and the at most lukewarm resistance offered by centre right liberals, who have yet to realise that social media could be seen as the agora's of the digital age.

    It matters little to them if the minority of people with INTJ personalities and high IQs can see through them, because so long as they can keep these people poor and discredit them, the brainwashed masses under their control will march in whichever direction they are led.

    Bill Kaysing was the first to get the ball rolling:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bill_Kaysing

    Kaysing thus wrote a book titled We Never Went to the Moon: America's Thirty Billion Dollar Swindle, which was self-published in 1976,[5]....
    Here's a couple more documentaries:

    I gave thanks to HokM but I disagree with him equating flat earth theory with Apollo skepticism. Apollo skeptics feel the renewed flat earth theory (in addition to space travel (of any kind) denial) propaganda is a deliberate attempt by the government to sideline their arguments:
