One of the main reasons for the emergence of conspiracy theories is the secrecy inherent in political and public activity. The ideal of politics implies full openness, but political reality never reaches and is unlikely to be able to achieve it.
In the sphere of state activity, secrecy operates legally. While this sphere of secrecy, which is a sample of the activities of the special services, exists, the public will always have grounds for questioning the official versions of some significant events.
Not all events attributed to the influence of conspiracies are such. The very status of secrecy assumes that any information about the organization can be questioned: if the information comes from outside, then it can be unreliable, and if from within – you can blame the source for deliberate disinformation.
Therefore, any organization that claims to be a secret, in fact, actually agrees that it can be accused of all conceivable and unthinkable misfortunes of mankind, and that these accusations can not be refuted based on the statements of the organization itself.
Conspiracy of pharmacists.
With the growth of environmental problems and the standard of living, people began to be particularly interested in their health. Here and there is a close acquaintance with the pharmaceutical companies. Their names are constantly on hearing, and rumors of their collusion are discussed in the press. After all, these companies dictate the prices of medicines, keeping them at an unreasonably high level. It is believed that pharmacists get just a frantic income – well, small tablets can not cost so much! There is talk that drugs can give side effects, even to death. In such situations, companies use all their levers of influence and, under the influence of big money, the business quickly jams. It is believed that even states can not influence large pharmaceutical corporations in relation to the prices of the most important medicines. It is producers who pay doctors to register the most expensive course of treatment, forgetting about cheaper options. This conspiracy is quite obvious and nobody even tries to deny it. Us, ordinary people, it remains only with sadness to look at this and continue to feed financial monsters with money – because without drugs you can not do.
80-ies for America, there were sometimes tests – a wave of ritual crimes swept across the country. Murders, rapes, tortures, defilements of children were carried out. Many could explain this only by the fact that there is a secret Satanic cult, which aims to completely degrade the existing society or its destruction in general. This theory was fanned by journalists to huge sizes, as a result of the work of various experts on this issue, and thousands of researchers predicted the end of the world. However, over time, the scientists quietly refuted such “works” and the panic over the conspiracy of the Satanists simply came to naught.
Protocols of the Elders of Zion.
These documents allegedly indicate that there is a conspiracy of the group of the most powerful Jews in the world who have set themselves the goal of dominating the world. And this is a direct threat to all other religions and the world economy. The idea of the existence of “protocols” was actively exaggerated in the US, Henry Ford himself paid for the publication of a book with a half-million circulation about this plot. As a result, the story of the Jewish conspiracy was actively used by the Nazis for propaganda purposes, in order to set against them and other nations. The very book of the “Protocols of the Elders of Zion” was eventually recognized as a fake, but interest in it did not fade away, and it even is published in one form or another until now.
In July 1947, near the town of Roswell, an unidentified lethal apparatus crashed in New Mexico.Until now, UFO fans believe that it was an alien ship, skeptics say it was a regular meteor shower. Curiosity was fueled by the fact that the US authorities classified all information related to this incident. Rumors swiftly spread that some symbols were found in the fallen apparatus, and in the suburbs of Roswell even the corpses of aliens were found. Another theory about the conspiracy about the Roswell incident is that a reconnaissance satellite has fallen from the sky, which has followed the Soviet Union. It is completely understandable that something is hidden from the public, but it is not clear what exactly is. But this story has received numerous reflections in fantastic films.
Shots in Dallas.
This conspiracy theory is one of the most famous. In 1963, President John F. Kennedy was killed, and the name of the real killer remained under question. Many books, articles and interviews were published on this subject, numerous experts and specialists conducted their own investigations. As a result, the opinion arose that not only Lee Harvey Oswald fired at Kennedy, or in any case he acted not alone. Rumors warmed the fact of the imminent death of Oswald, after which the public literally exploded. It seemed to many that in this way the true murderers had traces. There are versions about the murder of the President by political opponents, Oswald himself was framed or completely zombied. The fact is that getting into a person in a moving car and doing it so accurately, yes even twice in a row very quickly, is almost impossible. This brings to mind the fact that there were several gunmen. And some eyewitnesses say that they heard shots from different sides. The official version of the investigation is still under great doubt, and the conspiracy is growing with new rumors and new details. Paul McCartney died in the 60’s.
This conspiracy theory, although interesting, but slightly insane. Some people believe that Paul died in the late 60’s. His death could be decisive for the group “Beatles”, so it was decided to save it, and on tour they took a double with a similar voice. The band members themselves left mystical clues about this incident to their fans. So, on the cover of the album “Abbey Road” McCartney crosses the street with other musicians, but unlike them Paul barefoot and goes out of step. But only true fans of the band can believe in this theory, but it’s hard not to agree that it’s intriguing. The landing of Americans on the moon.
In the late 1960s, Americans overtook the USSR in the space program, landing on the Moon. However, this fact began almost immediately to be doubted not only in the USSR, but also in America itself. There a few years later, books began to appear with questions about the plausibility of those events. The skeptics were not convinced even the collected samples of the lunar soil and the arguments of specialists. It is alleged that video shooting was fabricated, the astronaut himself, while moving over the surface, hung on invisible cables. People are always arguing about why the US flag flutters in the open airless space of the Moon, why the ground remained unharmed after landing, and there were no marks from the launch engines of the rockets. The theme of a false landing is played out in many films, even computer games about it have come out, which testifies to the popularity of this theory of the conspiracy of the American government.
Impact on the subconscious.
Everyone knows the theory of the 25th frame. According to him, the media can use this technology to influence the subconscious of a person who does not fix this frame. But the subconscious mind marks it, and thus the impact on it is made, forcing people to do certain actions. It is believed that this method is widely used in advertising, where it is suggested the need to purchase a certain product.Musicians try to weave in their music certain programs and messages, and politicians to strengthen the power of their pre-election speeches, forcing electors to vote for them. Although the theory was refuted by American scientists back in the 60’s, it is still alive. But the manipulation of consciousness is now possible in other, more effective ways.
Death of Lady Diana.
The sudden and tragic death of a public person always causes a lot of questions and rumors. The death of Lady Diana, which occurred during her difficult relationship with the royal house of Great Britain, was just such a case. As a result, the theory of the conspiracy of the British special services was born not by an ethereal crowd, but by a completely tangible person – billionaire Mohammed Al Fayed, whose son was with Diana at the time of the accident. The death of the princess caused so much shock among the public that no official explanations were simply not perceived – for the death of a woman was very useful for the royal house. In the course of the tragedy many factors came together – the car flew like an airplane, the driver was drunk, the seat belts were not fastened, the paparazzi took pictures instead of helping the injured. All these nuances allowed the investigation to unequivocally assert that the cause of the catastrophe was the human factor. And the numerous admirers of Diana do not believe that death was the result of a chain of tragic accidents. The princess appears to be the victim of a conspiracy and the skeptics continually squeeze all the new evidence to this.
Terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001.
Not only America, but the whole world shuddered that day. Shocking frames of the collision of aircraft with skyscrapers of New York bypassed all news agencies. Mankind has experienced a real tragedy. The official position was born rather quickly – America became a target for Islamic terrorists who sent planes to buildings. But soon there was a documentary film “Fahrenheit 9/11”, which was quickly banned for display in the US. He gave rise to a lot of questions around the world, causing a huge resonance. The film tells that the CIA had long-standing and strong ties with al-Qaeda. Spectators come to the conclusion that the terrorist attacks have become a conscious victim of the government in order to strengthen their military power and economy. Today, a lot of questions remain after the tragedy – why the neighboring building collapsed, not damaged by aircraft, why the bearing skyscrapers bear the traces of undermining? As a result, such issues accumulated a lot, and no one is in a hurry to answer them. The film itself, as well as subsequent US actions in the course of the “fight against terrorism”, generate new waves of speculation.
