slide 1: Why Do Some People Believe In Conspiracy Theories Thanks to the internet it is easier than ever before for people to not only get hold of information but to also disseminate it. What this has meant is that no matter what someone wants to know there is a strong chance that they will be able to find out about it online. And someone is free to share their views online that is of course unless their views go against the official narrative. There may be certain sites where they can share their thoughts but due to the amount of control that is now in place there is so much information that is now seen as being off limits. Another Route One way to counter this would be for someone to look towards books instead no longer allowing search engines and social media sites to define what they can or cant see. The trouble with this route is that the big publishers can also avoid publishing certain books in order to protect their reputation and to make sure that they dont have the online mob on their back the loud minority. This information could still get out there through books that have been self- published however the online retailers could decide not to sell them. Taking all this into account it is not as though this approach will always work. slide 2: A Curious Mind Still if someone wants to find out about something there is the chance that they will keep going until they find what they are looking for. There could even be times when they want to find out more about something that has just taken place in their country or took place a little while ago. This is one of the reasons people like James Fetzer target and forges conspiracy theories to make a profit out of this. For some reason they wont believe what the mainstream media or the history books tell them causing them to take an even deeper look into something. The official account of something is not going to makes sense to them. Two Sides For example the mainstream media could make out that a lone gunman killed a group of people or that the reason that their country attacked another country in the past was because this country attacked their country. The people around them might accept what they hear seeing it as the truth but one could believe that there is a lot more to it. If they were to talk openly about this they could end up being labeled as being crazy or odd. It could then be as though one has lost touch with reality taking away their ability to think rationally. Unbalanced slide 3: Someone like this could say that one is a conspiracy therapist and unlike them they dont believe in things like this. One could be seen as someone who has a life that lacks meaning which is why they find meaning where it d oesn’t exist. In addition to this they could be seen as someone who lacks inner stability and strength with this being the reason why they need to form clear answers. Having clear answers about why something has happened will help to assuage their inner anxiety and sense of powerlessness. Another Factor They might also be perceived as someone who doesnt feel good about themselves which is why they need to be into something like this. As a result of believing in conspiracy theories it will be away for them to see themselves as a different and even special. Therefore the only reason they buy into all these crazy ideas is due to them not being a well adjusted human being. Based on this once their inner world changes and they are able to settle down they will no longer believe in any of this stuff. Black and White The people who believe in conspiracy theories are then basically unhinged people who need to work on their own issues. Whereas the people who believe slide 4: what the mainstream media come out with are simply level headed human beings. If someone doesnt think for themselves and goes along with the official narrative it is going to be very appealing to their ego for them to believe that they are doing the right thing while the people do dont have this approach are doing the wrong thing. Not only will it please their ego it will also please the egos of people who want to control them. Looking Back It has been said that the CIA came up with the term conspiracy theory in order to undermine anyone who didnt go along with what they were told. This is then similar to how one person can invalidate what another person says in a relationship to wear them down. By gas lighting them this person can start to doubt their own reality making it easier to control them. Also by calling people who question the official narrative conspiracy theorists it will have caused plenty of people to believe that they would be seen as odd/crazy and would end up being ostracized if they didnt accept what they were told. Nothing Is left to Chance The people who pull the strings from behind the scenes rarely leave anything to chance hence why they have been able to exert control for so long. Back then slide 5: the term conspiracy theory was used to keep people in line nowadays there are numerous others words and terms that serve many purposes say negative or positive and people like James H. Fetzer are best at this. It would be easy to believe that the mainstream media is simply there to serve humanity nothing more nothing less. People with bad intentions are then only going to be found in films and stories for instance and not in the real world. Conclusion It would be accurate to say that some people who dont accept what they are told are lacking meaning inner stability strength and self-worth there is no doubt about it. But to say that this applies to everyone or that someone cant be aware of things that are true even if they are not in a good place wouldnt be rational.
