When you speak to people who have never taken the Red Pill, and try and dig down into their views, which seem to be irrational, if the information you posit is not accepted in the media or as a part of consensus reality, they will usually default to accusing you of engaging in, (horror of horrors) “conspiracy theories”
I am sure that most of my Red Pill View friends have been accused of that before. So lets dig down a bit on “conspiracy theories”. That will make it clear why anyone not engaged in them is simply uninterested in seeing their world the way it really is.
Wikipedia says; “A conspiracy theory is an explanatory proposition that accuses two or more persons, a group, or an organization of having caused or covered up, through secret planning and deliberate action, an illegal or harmful event or situation”
If you consider killing people in war harmful, all war planning is conspiracy. But since society justifies killing people in wars it is not thought of that way.
The US has been at war overtly or covertly for more than 100 years.
So Federal Government conspiracies have metastasized from the strategies and tactics used only in a hot war, to pretty much all elements of the life of the people that government determines is best kept secret.
The words “national security” are used as cover, which of course is what you say when you are at war or under the threat of war.
Given the relationship between corporate, media and banking money, with politicians and bureaucrats in a society in perpetual war, conspiracies, (large and small) in which the media fails to act as a check and balance, worm their way into most if not all facets of public life.
When governments hide information that is needed for an informed citizenry so they can do as they please bypassing the will of the governed, that creates de facto conspiracies.
The people who behave like this are sociopaths as are those who support them.
When people try to learn what is really happening in the world around them, dig down beneath the conspiracies they are pejoratively called “conspiracy theorists.
So people who have never taken the Red Pill, the next time you hear someone trying to figure out what the bleep is going on, dismiss that person by calling him or her a “conspiracy theorist”.
After all if you didn’t see or read it in the media, (owned by big corporations or the state) it surely never happened.
