Evil and the Nature of Conspiracy Theories


Have you ever been ridiculed for believing a “conspiracy theory”? If so, think back and ask yourself what was the social and economic position of the person who did the ridiculing? I’m willing to bet they were either middle-class, upper middle-class, or lower upper-class. I make that deduction knowing that in order to even consider a conspiracy theory, let alone believe in one, a person has to be aware of the nature of evil.

Pick a conspiracy theory, any conspiracy theory, whether Sandy Hook, Boston, JFK, RFK, you name it, and at its root you’ll find evil.

People in those social and economic groups I mentioned – the middle-class, upper middle-class, and lower upper-class – have led pampered lives and tend to be very naive when it comes to evil. They’ve been educated at Columbia, Harvard, Yale, Stanford, and other fine schools. It’s hard for them to even imagine the kind of evil behind an assasination or a false flag terrorist act. They’ve read about evil, perhaps, but very few of them have ever experienced evil. (Not so for the lower class and upper class. They understand evil very well. Indeed, many of them have participated in evil.)

J. Edgar Hoover said it best: “Yet the individual is handicapped by coming face to face with a conspiracy so monstrous he cannot believe it exists. The American mind simply has not come to a realization of the evil which has been introduced into our midst. It rejects even the assumption that human creatures could espouse a philosophy which must ultimately destroy all that is good and decent.”

For the vast majority of people, the notion that this kind of evil exists is so frightening, it causes a shutdown or disconnect in the brain. That’s why so many otherwise intelligent people refuse to even look at the evidence involved in conspiracy theories. It’s similar to a wife’s reaction when she hears her husband has molested their daughter: denial, followed by an attack on the messenger.

And then for men there’s the courage issue. One of the male’s primary functions is to protect the family and the community from outside aggressors. When a man studies the evil involved in a conspiracy, such as Sandy Hook or Boston or the Vince Foster murder, he soon realizes that his country is being attacked, and now, if he’s a real man, he is obligated to do something about it. If not, he’s a coward, and short of being called a homosexual, calling a man a coward is the worst insult you can hurl at him.

So what do most men do? They take the easy way out. They deny the evil by denying the conspiracy. By refusing to even look at the evidence, no one, not even their own conscience, can call them a coward.

The more fearful a man is of losing face at his own lack of moral courage, the more aggressive he becomes in attacking those who present evidence of conspiracies. This fear is so powerful that many of them actually believe the lies they tell themselves.

It takes courage to confront evil. And of all the qualities that run the gamut of human emotion, courage just might be the rarest of all.

Will Enough of Us Refuse?

Please welcome our guest columnist, Sheila the Watcher!


Will Enough of Us Refuse?

by Sheila the Watcher

Living without the bonds of TV affords me the luxury of having time to read. As my third book this month, I happened to pick the Leon Uris novel, QB VII (1972), when there was still something to be proud about in America, and when there were still enough people around who could remember the horrors of WWII.

The story takes place in post-WWII England, and is about a libel suit brought by a Polish Nationalist doctor (Kelno), a former POW in Jadwiga concentration camp, against a Jewish-American author (Cady) who names him as performing surgeries for German doctors who were experimenting on Jewish prisoners.

This is part of the opening statement made by the defense attorney (for Cady) in the British courtroom:

“Well, as a matter of fact there were some Germans, soldiers, officers, priests, doctors, and ordinary civilians who refused to obey these orders and said, ‘I am not going to do this because I would not like to live and have this on my conscience. I’m not going to push them into gas chambers, and then say later I was under orders and justify it by saying that they were going to be pushed in by someone anyhow and I can’t stop it and other people will push them more cruelly. Therefore, it’s in their best interest that I shove them in gently.’ You see, the trouble was, not enough of these people refused.”

When my tears subsided I thought, what an amazing time to be reading this. How appropriate to what is happening in our country now.

Day after day we see headlines about the indignities suffered by air travelers at the hands of TSA agents who are content to place their hands on the genitals of passengers of no matter what ages for their daily ration of bread (read: HFCS, MSG, GMO, etc.). And still the passengers line up for the privilege of being “man-handled” so that they can get to grandma’s house or their next business meeting a little faster instead of saying, “I am a free American and you may NOT touch me without cause,” or even, “I will not ride your airplane if I must be accosted so.” (p. 2950

Day after day we see headlines about some police officer tazering an elderly citizen for asking a question, or throwing the occupant of a wheelchair to the ground to prove that he is handicapped… or killing a veteran for having a gun in his own home. And still we say, “Yes, sir” to the police and skulk away in fear, instead of saying, “Don’t do that to this person!”

Day after day we see headlines about what a potential criminal/terrorist — someone to be suspected regardless of their actions — is the person who cites the U.S. Constitution to affirm their rights, or likes a certain political candidate, or has served his or her country in the military, or just wants to be left alone by “the system”, or has the audacity to disagree with the current administration — or who asks for acknowledgement of the truth instead of ridicule on a point of fact. And still we say, “Thank goodness you’re taking care of my safety and security, because I don’t want to get my hands dirty,” instead of saying, “I have a right to my opinion, to think my own thoughts.”

Day after day we see headlines about the millions cheated out of their homes, loosing their jobs, forced to beg the government for poisoned food that will make their children imbeciles compared to who they could have been so that those who control the money can amass more and more for themselves, reaching orgasm at the thought of how much they have attained and how they can hold the “cattle” as slaves. And still we say, “Thank you for the job as a hamburger flipper so that I can pay you most of my wages in taxes,” instead of saying, “I will take care of my money myself.”

Stand up. Don’t let them grope you. Don’t let them go through your car at a warrant-less checkpoint. Don’t let them search your home without cause or due process. Don’t let them control your money. TPTB’s (The Powers That Be) philosophy is, if you don’t complain, nothing is wrong. Start complaining. Start deciding that you won’t allow yourself — or others — to be treated this way.

We are at the proverbial “slippery slope”. From here it will be easy to fall into the same state as was controlled by the German nazis. The slogan of the time was, “Never Forget!” But TPTB are doing everything possible — dumbing us down, directing thought — to make us forget so that they can use the same tactics unencumbered by the ghosts of the slaughtered. Don’t allow us and our children to be next. Those who forget history are doomed to repeat it. Just make sure the history you remember is the truth.

Aldus Huxley is quoted as saying (paraphrased) that the ideal situation is one in which the slave is contented with his enslavement. You are an accomplice to your own enslavement. Stop being contented. Stop rationalizing your own enslavement as the best you can hope for.

TPTB know that if you don’t resist, you are theirs to exploit in any way they see fit. Stop complying. Imagine what would happen to TPTB if we all just said, “hell, no” — no matter how gently they grab our balls.

Through our website, placeofrefuge2012.com, we talk to far too many docile, I-have-a-million-reasons-not-to-take-action kind of people. The time to stand up is now, not as they close the gas chamber door behind you. No football game, airline flight, bus trip, concert, prom, no job, no social group is worth your human dignity — nor your freedom. Spread the word that we are enslaved by our own volition — and that it doesn’t have to be so. Stop complying now with that which is, at it essence, wrong. There is no excuse.

“ …You see, the trouble was, not enough of these people refused.”
