I mean really! They swindle people out of their money, cause paranoia and waste peoples’ time. And for what? At school last week a friend of mine told me that a solar flare was going to happen “some time” which would “wipe out the Earth’s power grids and send us back to the Stone Age” (or something like that). Now he wasn’t wrong about the solar flare (that did in fact happen a day or two before he told me about it), but obviously he was wrong about the power grid failures (because we’re still here in the 21st Century with all our electricity intact). I just have to wonder why we would need to spread this kind of false information in the first place. Do conspiracy theories utlimately serve some kind of purpose, or are we just believing and spreading them to make ourselves feel more important? Any insight would be appreciated (especially from a conspiracy theorist themselves).
@Viktoria E: Interesting philosophy. I don’t see how it explains things like Planet X and the “Lizard People” (as they have no story behind them), but it does put things in a more interesting perspective.
Thanks for your input!
