Conspiracy Privilege?

“Great minds think alike.” What a truism!

I got this comment from sklyjd: https://citizentom.com/2023/01/11/what-liberal-democrats-want-us-believe-about-their-self-or-their-perfect-goodness-2/comment-page-1/#comment-106726.

I still plan to do a post on sklyjd’s charges, pointing out that all his conspiracies theories were hyped by the Liberal Democrat news media so they could charge Conservatives, including Trump, with a conspiracy. However, when I saw insanitybytes22’s post, I could not wait to reblog it.

Why do conspiracy theories catch on? Most of us really don’t care that much. We are too lazy to study the things we supposedly care about. So, we don’t do our homework. We just mindlessly follow the rest of the herd and repeat what the herd is saying, thinking that proves we care, at least as much as everyone else.

What most people don’t seem to get is the actual truth of an old saying, “change begins with me.”

Very few people have much power, and even the power of great leaders is limited. The most important thing George Washington did was to set a good example. Great leaders don’t make people change. Instead, they change themselves, and they encourage others to copy them.

What did Jesus do for His apostles? Yes, He died on the cross for our sins, and only God could do that, but He also did things that we can do, if not so well. He loved His disciples, and He washed their feet. He even loved the people who crucified Him, and He forgave them of their foolishness.

Look to your family, friends, neighbors, and countrymen. What kind of example have you set? Are you mindlessly following the herd, or are you doing your best to be good?

See, there's this thing called biology...

So I am an avid conspiritress, I often enjoy a good conspiracy theory, and I’m grateful to see people question narratives and think for themselves, however odd or confused they may appear on the surface. On a grand scale however, I am also keenly aware that the ability, the freedom, the innocence required to chase after conspiracy theories lives somewhere among the sheltered, naive, and protected. The privileged.

People who are busy just trying to survive don’t have time to try to see what’s going on behind the scenes. What’s going on right in front of them is usually more then they can handle.

Does a child being sex trafficked spend hours on Twitter trying to expose the truth about how the world is being run by elite pedophiles? They do not, because they are there, already living it.

  1. Tom, IB,

    Not sure no one cares is the root.

    Many do care, but have found out how powerless their or words are, and how powerful advertisements on tv one week before elections can be to accuse adversaries who have small campaign funds to pay for political TV abd radio advertisements obtained funds from funding benefactors..

    That is of course, providing the politicians were/are…“obedient politicians” during their terms in office to their campaign funds benefactors..

    Or while in office, they did not do something really politically foolish and became the center of attention in the news.

    Regards and goodwill blogging.

    1. There are degrees of caring. Lip service is caring. Giving our life for another is caring.

      If we care enough when we vote, then we will take the time to figure out how our government works. We won’t assume the people responsible for informing us, the news media, tell us the truth. We will trust, but we will also verify by checking as many sources as we can. Finally, we will take the time to learn about the candidates, and we will actively support the ones we think best for our family, friends, neighbors, and countrymen.

      Why don’t most people care that much? Many people are just lazy. Many others have not been properly educated. Nobody took the time to teach them to care, and nobody took the time to teach them how to care.

      You and I have learned to care. Like as not, we learned from experience, not because we were taught.

        Interesting comment you made which has been a conundrum since the beginning of time…

        “You and I have learned to care. Like as not, we learned from experience, not because we were taught.”

        The conundrum of why some people have dedicated their lives to caring for others, while others dedicate only to caring for themselves or sometimes only family.

        For example, I have often brought up the question if my blogs on school vouchers, that if government, (because they only have the records) conducted a statistical study of all convicted criminals to compare if they attended a religious or public school in their youth primary grades, would that prove that the public school’s policy of prohibiting teaching religion prove to have been foolish.

        The theories, such as genes, single family, peer, poverty, rich or poor, always seem to be brought up instead as conundrums.

        Even the conundrum of experience leads to wisdom is also debatable conundrum?

        In my opinion, King Solomon was spot on when he wrote Proverb 22:6 in ancient times when e families were considered a necessity in life instead of our contemporary times, believed by many to be curse or inconvenience in life.

        Regards and goodwill blogging.
