I don't even see how that's a conspiracy.
This is the first time I heard about the story specifically, should I just get out and have faith in it because some guy on DSF told me about it? I said I dont'believe it, I didn't say it doesn't happen and in my reply to you there is a solid explanation on why banks can get away with doing what they did anyway. When I say 'I don't believe it', it doesn't mean 'it can't happen' or 'it didn't happen', it means I have no opinion on it.

ah shit
really thought this was relevant to whole forum cos conspiracy & paranoia has always had an influence on the vibe of dubstep
makes me wonder what are mods afraid of? ;-)
surely not us owl people

see, I wouldn't have written that if this was still in General
I'm sensitive to these things

anyway, looking interesting so far

No more threads about strange shapes?

Or threads declaring that "it" has begun?

Libor, obv (a company I('ve) work(ed) for admitted this) and Google are known to be much too tax "efficient". The rest are pretty fanciful.

Incontrovertible proof that SD5 is working for a Secret Agency. Very sneaky, spending 6 years worming into our trust but I'm on to you now.

i'll never forget the levels of near guru worship of A Jones on DSF. people so worked up by a website, that they bought into all the screaming and paranoia machinery like gospel. like it was a cult.

its even funnier now that his whole bubble of " investigative journalism " has been burst, over and over through the years. even recently...

amazing how so many people associate the word "conspiracy" with "psycho babble falsehoods"

a typical accusation by an agent of the NWO
trying to redirect attention away from his masters & toward the innocent.
But the worm has turned kay & it is you now squirming in the spotlight!
:corncry:

btw I put the Google & banks options in largely because some people don't believe anything they read. Their favoured conspiracy is that we are being mislead about everything. Plus it gave the sceptics something to claim wasn't a conspiracy. Ultimately these are the two issues we can most do something about.

The only people I remember being full on conspiracy heads are parson and hackman, parson moreso, I think the general consensus on here for at least the last couple years has been that the world isn't 'run' by Reptilians. :lol:

Agree though it is full on cult behaviour... I see it like a 21st century religion, and they're very fundamentalist about it. Essentially all they have to do is enforce that number 1 rule; everything 'the media' say is false. Once someone believes that, getting them to believe other things becomes very easy. Like listening to unaccountable, practically anonymous 'truthers' on their syndicated, self prophesizing blogs, as opposed to actual IRL journos who can be and are held accountable for their work.

Over the last couple of years I've seen someone I know go from being perfectly sane to believing every single word that man says. To the point where he's actually moving into a caravan on some land because he wants to be detached from society. It's actually pretty sad.

Also think the internet has enabled it, the plague like spread of disinformation. The amount of total shit I see on Facebook is insane.

fear has created it, and like you said, the internet just pushed it into a lifestyle. literally, eat, walk, sleep conspiracies. everyone's out to get you, everything the media reports is out to distract you, false flags, corporate shills, etc.

the part that turns it into a cult, is discrediting all countering opinions by appeals to emotion. you know...you're wrong, everything you believe is wrong, what you stand for is wrong because.....i have 40million followers. i sell dvds. i have a website, etc.

repeat and rinse.

remember that all mass media in times of recession or war ( vietnam & iraq are pivotal examples) generally promote an establishment objective or manifesto. they push the establishment hardest, instead of the general public's opinion immediately, because the latter is what they live and make profit on by controlled manipulation. news corp, fox, neo-con media VS left/centrist/liberal media. polarizing people into opposition thinking. us vs. them. etc.

chomsky is the guy to read on all of this. manufacturing consent specifically. think for yourself.
