“Great minds think alike.” What a truism!
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?
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.
