Epic Conspiracy Truth-Seeker
One must be brave to use the word Conspiracy these days. It’s the dirty word of the 21st century. This term has been used to explain the powerful and hidden agendas of the secret military, politicians, bankers, elite family bloodlines that all aim to rule in secrecy and to take freedom from the people. It might be a word used very cautiously, but it’s a term that perfectly describes the complaints many make of the exposed corruption of America.
We see hundreds of conspiracies come to light from history books. Such as the deliberate action to eradicate Native Americans in 1763 by giving them small pox infected blankets. The Underground Railroads became a proven conspiracy as the African slaves escaped through covert routes guided by the Abolitionists in the 1800’s. The assassination of President Abraham Lincoln and the Federal Reserve Act that was planned in secret on Jekyll Island three years earlier in 1910. The Tuskegee Syphilis study gave poor blacks syphilis without diagnosing them, and Project MKULTRA a code name for the CIA mind-control research program. The very conception that mind-control could be performed covertly without the knowledge of American citizens in our most recent past stirs up the word conspiracy.
The JFK assassination has many questioning our faith in our government. Most recently, the terrorist attacks on the day of 911 and the unyielding wars fought now in the Middle East for the love of profit. It’s unfortunate that many are called a conspiracy nut and ostracized for questioning authority. Something is very wrong when a day is highlighted to celebrate the biggest conspiracy of all — Columbus Day. Christopher Columbus didn’t discover the new world in the late 15th century. He set out on a voyage funded by the Royal bloodline in Spain to find gold. He was given 10% of the profits. Then Columbus directed the natives to convert to Catholicism and to turn them into “good servants” and when conversion didn’t work the natives were killed. President George W. Bush in 2002 had the flag fly high on every public building in reverence to Columbus and his evil deeds. The confusing underlying message here is that slavery, gold expedition, religious persecution, rape and pillage are acceptable and Columbus is a hero!
The father of spin, Edward Bernays, became well known in 1928 for his work Propaganda. He worked with his Uncle Sigmund Freud seeking ways to manipulate public opinion based on human emotions and the subconscious.
“The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country… We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of. This is a logical result of the way in which our democratic society is organized,” Edward Bernays.
His work presently thrives in the 21st century. Turn on the television and listen to key words being drummed over and over. Our society is hooked into advanced technology that shares information quickly persuading us to trust, buy and conform. The effect of mass media on our youth for example can be explored by the overuse term of the word Epic, the definition pertains to a long poetic composition, usually centered upon a hero. Epic currently means extremely awesome, but this word isn’t trendy to use nowadays.
It’s not favorable to be known as anyone who questions the propaganda machine of the main stream media, but it’s imperative that we do our best to remember the past from all sides and to question why we do things a certain way. That makes us a responsible, aware and awake citizen of planet Earth. Proven conspiracies exist regardless of personal opinion and yet a resistance to the word often presents itself in conversations. Many of us can barely fathom the reality of corruption and greed oozing out of Washington and the Banking Industry. The best line of defense in a world that uses trendy terms and agendas to benefit those with the most money and power is to simply edify the use of the word conspiracy. It’s okay to question and not be called a nut because it doesn’t conform to the main stream point of view. If you question reality and wonder about the hidden agendas of the people in power, then change the trend. Be proud and become an epic conspiracy truth-seeker.
