Apparently I have gone over the edge, into an abyss of conspiracy where the devils advocate is just that, a devil. I can see now that I was somehow born with the programming that has led me into this abyss. I came of age during the sixties and early seventies when we had the Vietnam war and Civil Rights and the Cold war. So I suppose I was affected by that in some way. But evidently there were far many others from that time that were not affected in the same way so it couldn’t have been just that. Other than that, I’ve lived the “normal” American life with a wife, two kids, a two car garage, a career and of course, a divorce. But I really started toward that abyss about 18 months ago.
That’s when I retired. I’m fortunate in that respect because I have a pension after a thirty year career. Of course, then I had lots of time. I started sitting in front of the computer and learned to Google. I found a few political websites, the first Huffington Post, then DailyKos. I started getting into it and enjoyed reading the political stuff. Then I went to the dark side. 9/11 conspiracy theory stuff, federal reserve conspiracies, antiwar sites, you name it. It was like getting trapped in the porn section of a major city, not that I would know, I’m just imagining.
I started reading about the CIA and alternative explanations for the wars we fought. I read about the Rockefeller Foundation and other organizations and individuals actually controlling the population with subliminal propaganda geared toward keeping the populace barefoot and pregnant. I read about how the Federal Reserve was founded, who was involved, and history of banking back to the start of the Revolutionary War. I read about 9/11, 7/7, 7-11 (that was a conspiracy about Slurpies), and can’t get myself to accept the official (government) explanations. Hell, I even read that the government lied to us once, and you know if they do it once, they might do it again.
So now here I sit in my dark room, in an abyss of conspiracy. I can’t read or watch anything in the MSM without immediately wondering what the “real” story is. I see seemingly good news like the revelation from Panetta about CIA lying and wonder why he said that. No, there must be more to the story. I honestly can’t tell the difference between Democrats and Republicans!
I’ll be OK I think. So far I haven’t fallen completely in where it ruins my daily activities. I’m just hoping I don’t read about my local Safeway grocery store being owned by Haliburton.
