5 conspiracy theories that are true (but not the way you think)
We certainly do not lack world conspiracy theories. You can jump to Facebook right now and find a few theories that 9/11 was instructed from within and that it was instructed by the same people responsible for sinking the Titanic. However, it often turns out that these nonsense about conspiracy theories are untrue and that they are revealed by conspirators who want to achieve a pre-conceived goal by spreading misinformation. The truth is, there is a secret plan between the lines… Only, not as the theory presents it… For example…
1."AIDS was invented by the American government" was actually KGB propaganda
Since the appearance of the disease called AIDS, a number of people have believed that it is a kind of biological weapon created by the American government in order to use it against its people. According to some theories, this disease is designed to destroy certain groups of people, such as homosexuals and African-American communities. Of course, every other tragic event has its "new vision" from a "special angle" or "behind the scenes." Thus, the theory of the origin of the HIV virus had little help from Russia.
Real conspiracy theory
In 1980, the CIA estimated that the KGB would spend about $ 3 billion to inject its ideas among Americans. This includes various conspiracy theories about the Government of America, all with the aim of undermining the trust of the people.
The Russian government had control over all the media, and articles were published with various theories about how the Americans invented this biological weapon and, of course, detailed and very well-argued explanations on the subject, which were quite successfully accepted.
However, when the disease began to spread through the Soviet Union, Russian scientists asked American scientists for answers on how to deal with it, but no one had a solution. Since then, the Russian media have started writing contrary to what they have been publishing until then.
But, like any other good conspiracy theory, traces of this are still present among people around the world.
2.Hitler believed in the "Jewish Conspiracy Theory" in part because he himself succumbed to propaganda deception
Believe it or not, Hitler was not the first to come up with the theory that it was the Jewish people who wanted to dominate the world. He was obsessed with a pamphlet entitled "Protocol of the Sages of Zion" in which records from a secret meeting of powerful Jews that took place in a castle located in the Moonraker spacecraft were allegedly leaked.
It turned out to be a hoax that is a plagiarism of pieces - satire from the 19th century. Despite the fact that it may be partly responsible for the Holocaust, it actually arose from a completely different motive: to soften the attitude towards political dissidents in pre-communist Russia.
Real conspiracy theory:
Pyotr Rachkovsky is one of the greatest manipulators - spies of the Russian tsar. He worked for the Russian Secret Police (Okhrana) and, among other things, took care of exposing revolutionary groups, both in Russia and throughout Europe. One of the measures he took was instructed journalism - where the newspapers wrote what they were told. Okhrana probably invented the above-mentioned document called the Protocol, which aimed to discourage the communists from starting a revolution - because the communists themselves seemed to be being used as an instrument by the Jews to rule the world.
Why were the Jews taken as the main actors, probably because there were some in the area.
It is obvious that the goal was not achieved because the Russian revolution took place a few years later. Yet this wicked document - the Protocol came into the hands of dangerous and reckless people, such as Hitler, and the rest is a frightening history.
3. The Romans claim that the Christian conspiracy happened because the emperor had to sew a catastrophic fire on someone
It is known that it was not easy for Christians in ancient Rome. At a time when Christians were a minority, they were accused of various things, from eating babies as part of their rituals (it was really believed) to causing natural disasters. As a result, many were thrown to the lions in the arena.
Real conspiracy theory:
Remember how I mentioned above that it’s impossible to kill a conspiracy theory? Sometimes it is necessary to invent a new theory that would refute the previous one. In the year 64 BC, a great fire broke out in Rome, and after that the people began to sharpen their weapons and find various causes of the fire. A popular rumor was that Emperor Nero started a fire out of fun because he was the type of lunatic who eats crickets and plays the violin while the people are burning.
This rumor has survived to this day. But this is just a rumor because, above all, the violin did not exist at that time, and to make the matter even less probable, it seems that Nero was not in Rome at that time. However, the Romans did not have access to "databases" and once that rumor came to life, it spread among the masses. The only way to stop this rumor was for Nero to reveal that it was the Christians who were actually responsible for setting the fire.
Then the torture of Christians began, they were brutally tortured, they were asked to confess, and it is well known that when someone is brutally tortured, he says everything he wants. That is how Christians became responsible for the Great Fire in Rome.
Until one day Constantine realized that Jesus was a positivist…
And the one who accidentally dropped the candle, in the year 64 BC, escaped the contempt of history forever.
The reason you know who the Knights Templar are is, either you played the video game Assassin's Creed or you are a fan of Dan Brown's novel and his vision of history. As we would say - the Knights Templar were not as vicious warriors as the bankers who protected the property of pilgrims traveling to and from the Holy Land.
How then did we come to believe that the Knights Templar are Illuminati who dispute the church and spread heresy, such as that Jesus had children and what not? We can thank the King of France and his great debt for this.
Real conspiracy theory:
King Philip IV found refuge with the Knights Templar fleeing an angry mob. When he found himself in their castle he was the worst guest anyone could wish for. He spent incredible amounts of food and drink and borrowed huge sums of money from wealthy Templars.
But bankers are bankers wherever and in what century they lived, for them it doesn't matter if someone is a king or a monk, they will issue a bill to him. However, Philip thought - "Why repay the loan when you can simply beat him to death?" So in 1307, King Philip IV issued a decree that the Templars spread heresy, to practice orgies and wet the cross for pure fun.
Pope Clement V rejected the accusations and formally acquitted the knights. He sent cardinals to France and England to investigate the case, but Philip simply arrested them.
In the end, the pope himself was frightened by the king's wrath and dissolved the Templars - in order to avoid further consequences, and this was considered the pope's condemnation of the Templars and their reputation remains questionable to this day.
5. "Climate change is a scam" is a secret conspiracy by the oil industry
One of the biggest arguments is that a group of ecologists - left-wing politicians and scientists invented the whole thing.
Real conspiracy theory:
However, the claim that climate change is a great deception devised by the scientific community was first proposed by the American Entrepreneurship Institute in lobbying. Lobbying here means "the group of people who advocate for the opinions of the one who pays the most," and as the name suggests, the American Entrepreneurship Institute is primarily funded by completely impartial entities such as ExxonMobil and Koch Industries, each of which has cashed in over $ 1 million. .
After a thorough "research", the AEI (American Entrepreneurship Institute) came to the conclusion that climatologists cooperated in generating fear and that they themselves did not believe in climate change. The claim came to light after an anonymous hacker "released" more than 5,000 emails sent between climatologists in a "scandal" imaginatively called "Climategate". AEI reported: “
Of course, what they forgot to explain is that the emails show no signs of disagreement about whether climate change is present - scientists have simply discussed only some details in their algorithms. It’s kind of like exposing a group of physicists arguing about equations and then using the same as proof that gravity doesn’t exist.
Other investigations, by the British Parliament, the State University of Pennsylvania, two different branches of the University of East Anglia, the EPA and the Associated Press, have relieved researchers of any responsibility for data falsification. Even Senator Jim Inhofe reluctantly accepted the findings, despite himself being a keen skeptic about climate change.
But the AEI is not the only oil-lobbying-funded organization to claim that climatologists have devised some big conspiracy to scare the global population. The Energy Research Institute (IER, which, miraculously, is also funded by Koch and Exxon) says the urgency of climate change is nothing more than a product of researchers looking for ways to fund themselves, liberal politicians collecting votes, sensationalist media and green companies trying to to push their competitors out of the market. In fact, in a detailed report by the Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS), AEI and IER are just two of ten groups that generously fund fossil fuel corporations and are constantly spreading misinformation about global warming.
Since the report was published, Exxon and Koch have visibly reduced their funding for such groups. It is probably a coincidence that these groups suddenly experienced an unprecedented increase in secret donations, which come through mediocre players - groups that Koch Industries is known to fund finans but we still do not want wood-loving scientists to get away with lying to the public. In the end, what would happen to the world if we made the effort to move away from fossil fuels and thus reduce the rate of release of various pollutants into the environment?
