Are You a Conspiracy Theorist? Or a Coincidence Theorist?

Are you a conspiracy theorist? Or a coincidence theorist? Our world is a mess – but is it by intentional design, or random happenstance?

We all know our world has gone mad, and many of us shake our heads wondering how we got here. Ineffective government, endless resource wars, failing economic and education systems, planetary degradation; very little about our current global circumstances reflects our hopes and dreams and goals; our shared wants for peace, for justice, for technological progress that supports not destroys our planet. It does not reflect our innermost nature, which yearns for peace and abundance. And yet, no matter what we do, no matter who we vote for or what they promise to do, or how many of us also feel humanity is on a slippery slope to its own demise, for some reason, we (collectively) keep marching boldly on in the wrong direction.

Strangely, many even go as far as questioning the sanity of those who believe all this is not by accident but by design, and dismiss “conspiracy theorists” as lunatics and uncritical thinkers. If that sounds like you – if you’ve used the phrase “conspiracy theorist” as a derogatory term – open your mind and consider what I’m about to say, if only for the 3 minutes as it takes to read it.

Let’s start with a history lesson…

Conspiracy [noun]: 
  1. definition: a secret plan by a group to do something unlawful or harmful.
  2. synonyms: plot, scheme, plan, deception, collusion.

The CIA created the term “conspiracy theorist” in April 1967. It first appeared in a CIA dispatch marked “psych” – for “psychological operations” — and was created for the purpose of disparaging those people who believe that a high-level conspiracy is taking place. The dispatch was acquired under a Freedom of Information Act request in 1976. It states:

The aim of this dispatch is to provide material countering and discrediting the claims of the conspiracy theorists, so as to inhibit the circulation of such claims…

Action: We do not recommend that discussion of the [conspiracy] question be initiated where it is not already taking place. Where discussion is active, addressees are requested:

a. To discuss the publicity problem with and friendly elite contacts (especially politicians and editors)… Urge them to use their influence to discourage speculation…

b. To employ propaganda assets to and refute the attacks of the critics. Book reviews and feature articles are particularly appropriate for this purpose… Our ploy should point out… that the critics are (I) wedded to theories adopted before the evidence was in, (II) politically interested, (III) financially interested, (IV) hasty and inaccurate in their research, or (V) infatuated with their own theories.

Shortly after, articles posted in the New York Times and Time Magazine repeated the phrase “conspiracy theorist” numerous times in a disparaging context, just as the CIA dispatch had recommended, and it has since become widely associated with superstition and paranoia through its ongoing depiction in the mainstream media. Linguistically, the phrase also associates any mention of conspiracy with “theory”, not fact. It was a fine piece of propaganda.

Conspiracy or Coincidence?

Today, conspiracy theorists look at the many recent examples of government corruption and cronyism (eg. the TPP, the privatized Federal Reserve), false flag attacks (eg. 9/11) and endless wars, the media’s censorship of important stories (eg. Fukushima), unprecedented government surveillance and regulation (of its own people!), rigged economic systems (eg. fractional reserve banking), rigged elections (eg. USA 2004), a failed education system (eg. Common Core Conformity), cultural disconnection, and an unsustainable relationship with our environment, and they see a common thread — a conspiracy — that binds these narratives together.

Coincidence theorists, on the other hand, write off these failings of our society as “human nature”; a series of random occurrences that demonstrate just how fundamentally bad human beings actually are, and how incapable we are as a species to live sustainably on this earth. But the most vocal of coincidence theorists don’t stop there; they throw the words “conspiracy theorist” around as a pre-loaded insult – a blanket phrase used to discredit any genuine notion of high-level collusion as the impossible fantasy of paranoid tin-foil hat wearing fools. But perhaps the tin foil hat is on the wrong head…

JFK quote - a plot to enslave every man woman and child

Sure, it sure takes a stretch of our comprehension to understand the dark and complex scope of the collusion required to subvert our democratic governments and install a ‘shadow’ power over our societies. The concept of a global conspiracy of ‘elite’ powermongers is a difficult one for ALL of us to get our heads around, once the penny finally drops, and is one that even the most ardent conspiracy theorists have personally struggled before openly deciding to put the “tin foil hat” on in public – a public that thinks the very notion of a global conspiracy is nuts.

But let’s be realistic — power corrupts. That is the human nature we are confronted with today – not yours and mine, but the nature of those in power. And, given that nature, it is an even greater stretch of logic and reason to believe that those powerful few at the very top of our political social and economic oligarchy (the Rothschilds, the Rockefellers, the Crown, the Vatican, the owners of Mass Media, etc.) who collectively hold both the means and motive to assume unwarranted and unprecedented global control, have NOT – from either benevolence or blindness. And yet, that is what coincidence theorists believe – that the most powerful political, economic, religious and media institutions on the planet have chosen not exert their fullest influence on our societies nor extract the fullest personal gain that their positions inarguably offer them. Rather, they would have us believe our world is shaped by a random (yet decades-long) sequence of the worst possible mistakes and injustices humanity could ever make for itself and its future, which coincidentally continues to funnel power, wealth, influence and benefit into the hands of the most powerful. And even worse, that it’s all our own fault, because that’s our “nature”.

The fact is, coincidence theorists tend to disregard that many common “conspiracy theories” can easily be verified by following the money trail (for example, war is among the most economically profitable industries in the U.S.), or by reading the government’s official documentation (there are numerous U.S. government documents relating to ongoing geoengineering / chemtrails programs, for example.) Instead, they write it off to “human nature”, despite the fact that the direction we vote for is never what is ultimately carried out by our so-called leaders (remember Obama’s “change” speech. Yeah… me too.)

Sorry coincidence theorists, but now it is you who are being foolish.

I can tell you from experience, as someone who (like you) also used to believe the notion of a global conspiracy was the realm of the paranoid and delusional — if you flex the critical discernment muscles you so often proclaim, suspend your preconceptions and fears, and research beyond the surface of the mainstream narrative, you will be surprised – as well as horrified, indignant, angry and maybe a little frightened. But please, it’s time to stop smugly dismissing ‘conspiracy theories’ blindly and without intelligent consideration, just as the loaded CIA-created phrase encourages you to do. Truth is stranger than fiction. And until you’ve really researched and considered the detail not just of individual “conspiracy theories” but the sum total of their interplay, your opinion is worthless; and it is contributing to the problem.

In truth, corruption, destruction, manipulation, selfishness, short-sightedness – they are not my nature. Are they yours? Personally, I am outraged by what I see happening in the world, and from where I sit, so are most of you. I wish a far better future for my children and grandchildren than we are currently creating for them – and if I understand the true nature of human beings, so do you. So how then, can our current course of direction be the collective total of our nature?

Always-you-with-that-conspiracy-stuff-1

The reality is, it can’t. Our ship is being steered in the wrong direction because it suits those at the helm, not those who are busy paddling and simply trying to stay dry. And no matter which way voters choose, we keep sailing in the wrong direction. That is no accident; it is by design.

Modern politics, economics, education, agriculture, allopathic medicine, information media, energy, technological dependence, non-local food supply, even the way our society interacts with itself (competitively instead of cooperatively); all are new to the modern era. All are altered versions of effective and sustainable models that our ancestors thrived on for millennia, and all became unsustainable – but increasingly profitable and beneficial to powerful families, institutions and the status quo they prefer – in the past hundred or so years.

In complete contradiction, coincidence theorists would have us believe it is human nature en masse to be greedy, opportunistic, destructive, warring, manipulative and competitive. And yet, when it comes to believing that only the few most powerful people possess and actively use these qualities to their own benefit — to manipulate the collective mind and consolidate their power — all logic fails. They consider it impossible that a group of humans could be so twisted as to collude in such a way that leads humanity collectively down a garden path, but somehow, they deem it more possible that we could ALL be wired that way – and that the problems we see are all a mysterious coincidence.

But we are not wired that way, only psychopaths are. Our acceptance of this psychotic behaviour (see Zen’s article on Psychopathy) is not part of our nature – it is part of our socialization and conditioning. Not coincidentally, this conditioning is determined and administered by the governments, media and institutions that benefit from the state of affairs our conditioning has led us to accept. As a result, we sit idly by as corporations are given the rights of persons while human rights are increasingly undermined; while the hellish violence of (highly profitable) war is promoted by our ‘leaders’ as the only way to achieve peace; while our children are taught to become “adults”, to suppress their instincts and adapt to a society that is not like them – one that expects them to be selfish, destructive and unkind as par for the course – all the while forgetting that our nature should determine the shape of our society, not the other way around.

Are you a conspiracy theorist - Or a coincidence theorist - Lieutenant Colonel David Gapp

That we are so far off course with little sign of change; that we have not only come to accept this insanity as “human nature” (but, of course, not our own); that many even defend the status quo as “the only way” for humanity; this is no coincidence. It is by design. Call it what you will – conspiracy, collusion, complicity – we are here because the most powerful people on our planet have acquired both the means and the motive to assume beneficial, underhanded control of the most influential institutions in our society. And they took it. Now it’s time we take it back.

If by now you’re still advocating the coincidence theory, in all its improbability and implausibility, I have an old a tin foil hat you can borrow.

A Final Note

To our readers who say, “Wake Up World, just stick to the natural health, and spirituality. Why do you have to post this conspiracy stuff?” … Because, friends, it’s all part of the same story. The reason ancient esoteric wisdom and ancient spiritual practices have not been passed down to you organically… The reason centuries-old food-based health remedies are not passed down through families and communities, but are considered “alternative” or “fringe” therapies, while symptom (not cause) based pharmaceutical medicine (which kills hundreds of thousands of people each year) is considered the norm… The reason our environment has been trashed since the industrial revolution, which has driven ownership of business into fewer and fewer hands… The reason governments continue to (unlawfully) ban the simple act of growing your own fruit and vegetables… The reason technology and resources are spent on dangerous energy systems like oil and nuclear, while non-toxic and renewable energy technologies are routinely suppressed… The reason journalists announced that Building 7 had collapsed half an hour before it actually happened… The reason the last US President who spoke out about high-level conspiracy (the government behind the government) was assassinated shortly after… The reason for all of it is the same.

War, sickness, religion, debt creation, media, fossil fuels, food production — these are the most profitable and powerful industries in the world. It is naive to believe their stranglehold on our society is by coincidence not by design, and there is little point in working to remedy the symptom, by sharing health information or spiritual knowledge, without also addressing the cause that brought us here – the collaboration between the world’s most powerful people, for their own mutual benefit.

JFK’s Speech on Secret Societies and the Conspiracy Behind Government:

 

8 Ways School is Making Children Stupid and Depressed

Our schools are supposed to guide children into growing up and learning essential thinking concepts, and responsibility, that will continue to serve them later in life.

 
Nowadays our schools are straying from that and doing more intellectual harm than good. The intelligence in kids ends up stagnating and fills them with stress. This all leads up to the hectic world we now live in.

 8 Ways School is Depressing and Dumbing Down our kids:

1. It teaches children to conform
Schools aim to teach our kids to only conform to rules and do as they are told, even if they want to or not. They are forced to sit at a desk for hours sitting idle and behaving. They aren’t to interrupt one another or the teacher, but learn what is being taught to them. Most of the information fed to our kids doesn’t serve them a great deal later in life.

They limit their freedom by telling them when to go to the bathroom, to move and when to talk. While this ensues, children end up instilling distrust in their own conscience and assimilate to authority demands.

This doesn’t just hold them back, it also can deprive them of fulfillment and depress them.

2. It teaches children what to think, not how to think
Schools these days would rather our children become illogical ad lack the ability to come to a conclusion when information is being given to them.

They’re taught to believe what they are learning, even if it is or isn’t true. This doesn’t teach them to seek out the truth and enumerate their options. It prevents critical thinking and hinders its improvements.

3. It teaches children to be uncreative
When kids are young they have a lively imagination, yet our school system does nothing but silence it. Children are most creative at younger ages, and with that, they need the Arts. However, these days the Arts is becoming extinct in the school system around the world. The reason is due to it being a profession deemed not profitable.

Schools actually prevent our children from self-exploration and expressing their thoughts and feelings involving theater, music, art, painting etc. Instead, they are forced to sit in a classroom learning non-essential things that have no meaning to them. They end up neglecting their mind, spirit and heart as they aren’t learning to cultivate their own creativity.

4. It teaches children to fear failure
It’s a part of life to make mistakes because it gives us wisdom, yet the school system these days would rather instill fear of failure into kids. They push to make it come off more evil than it sounds.

They are taught to pass exams by studying, and when they fail, some are mocked and frowned upon. This enables children to avoid making mistakes, which will hold them back from making and completing goals later in life.

5. It teaches children to think play is bad
Kids love to play around, laugh, crack jokes, and have a sense of fun. Playtime fills kids with happiness and contentment.

As they grow up, children learn from school that play isn’t productive and wastes valuable time. It doesn’t. This only teaches them to be too serious and uptight about the future, that they begin to enter into depression. Children need play time to help them enjoy life and the current moment.

6. It teaches children to avoid listening to their heart
Children have a closer connection to the heart than adults do. After being conditioned and grown into adulthood, they will have already built up barriers between their heart and themselves.

This is directly caused from being cooped up in school for 5 days a week, being taught things they find dumb and hate doing, which they are constantly told will benefit them and society. With that, it instills the habit of distrust and a lack of conscience, as well as a loss of touch with the heart.

7. It teaches children to associate money with success
School is also teaching kids to associate money with personal success, which offers nothing to their self-growth. Children are instilled with the notion that life is about earning a top-notch salary, that sacrificing your happiness and a third of your life, to get a degree to work for a corporate giant as a corporate slave is the adult thing.

This forces children to prevent themselves from finding passion in their life and steer them from their clear purpose in this life.

8. It teaches children to sacrifice today for the sake of tomorrow
At school, children are taught to sacrifice the current moment for studying useless and dry material, for the sake of a reward in life. Nowadays people don’t enjoy the current moment and are always in a constant state of achieving ends for the future.

They think this will achieve happiness, but it doesn’t. Children shouldn’t spend their time worrying about the future, it only fills them with regrets, wastes their lives, and ends up sustaining psychological damage.

Allopathy, Homeopathy and Ayurveda: A Comparison

Diseases, illness, sickness, we would have been so fortunate if these words have never existed, but unfortunately, these are part of our life and with this, we also have to be in sync with the different treatment options available and in any case, how to pick the best one. Choosing the best treatment option for a particular disease can get really confusing considering the merits and demerits of the available treatment methodologies, i.e.allopathy, homeopathy and Ayurveda.

Though Ayurveda is the oldest system of medicine, originated and used in India since ages and homeopathy slowly is making a mark amongst the different medicine systems available, but when it comes to the most preferred choice of medication, allopathy has the lion’s share of the market.

With the rising confusion and myths associated with these medications, it becomes important to compare all these medicine systems (allopathy, homeopathy and Ayurveda) to find out the major differences between them and to get an idea which one is ideal or best suited for different diseases at different times.

Allopathy

Allopathy is derived from the Greek word állos (other or different) + pathos (disease or suffering), which means “other than the disease.” Allopathy is essentially a piece of the western therapeutic framework and is spread everywhere throughout the world. It is received by the majority of the nations around the globe and commonly called as drug therapy. Allopathy is basically a drug oriented methodology and relies on three things, hypothesis, experimentation, and the result of the experiment.

In this methodology, allopathic doctors are restricted by what they can do on the grounds that they just have to concentrate on the symptoms of a disease and not on the causes of those symptoms. It appears that there is a pill for each evil and then, a pill for all their side effects. It is known that allopathy offers only partial cure, as the drugs are made to only cure the reaction and not the root cause. The effectiveness of allopathic medicines during an emergency is the fundamental reason why it is adopted by most of the people all around the world.

The main disadvantage of allopathy is that most of the medicines are associated with some side effects. The pill given to treat a disease cures that particular disease but might give birth to another disease in the body. These side effects can be internal or external. Once the disease is cured, a person needs to take medicines to adverse the side effects caused due to that medicine.

For example, if a person takes allopathic medicines such as a Paracetamol tablet to cure fever. The tablet brings down the high body temperature to normal but the tablet also has a harmful effect on the liver.

#Fact: It is important to note that there is no place for individuality in allopathy as the same pill is given to the patients suffering from the same disease.

Homeopathy

Homeopathy, the name is derived from two Greek words (hómoios + pathos) meaning “like disease.” It means that a substance which causes the symptoms of a disease in a healthy person will cure the same disease in a sick person. (We bet you will read that again). According to this methodology, substances that produce symptoms of a disease will have a curative effect on a sick person exhibiting the same symptoms, when given in very dilute quantities.

Homeopathy is a holistic system of treatment that originated in the 18th century and has been proven to be safe, effective and curative. It has been in use since last 200 years, by hundreds of millions of people. It embraces the body’s natural response system by attacking the root cause of illness or by encouraging the symptoms of healing. This is why it is meant to completely cure a disease. The homeopathic medicines are non-toxic and do not have any side effects. It works by using very small doses of potential substances to stimulate the immune system which helps in healing the patient naturally.

Homeopathic treatment is effective in treating many medical conditions such as cold, flu, influenza, infections, circulatory problems, nervous and respiratory disorder, heart disease, depression, headache, allergies, diabetes, arthritis etc. when these are found at early stages.

Homeopathic doctors seek to cure their patients not only on the physical levels but also on the mental and emotional levels. The treatment is aimed to cure each patient as per their individual needs.

Homeopathy is generally known for its non-toxic nature as it uses medicines in very small quantities, have minimal chances of any side effects which makes it a good treatment option for children also.

#Note: Homeopathy does not encourage both the use of homeopathy and allopathy simultaneously for the same disease (allopathy suppresses the symptoms of a disease which makes it difficult for a homeopathy practitioner to judge the condition of the patient and decide what medicine to give or what the potency of medicine should be). 

Ayurveda

Ayurveda is a Sanskrit word which is formed from two words, “Ayus” meaning life and “Veda” meaning knowledge or science. So the term Ayurveda resembles, “The Knowledge of Life.

Ayurveda is also known as the science of natural healing because it derives its medicines purely from nature. Ayurveda is originated in India and is 5000 years old medical knowledge system. According to Ayurveda, body, mind and spirit are connected with each other.

The most part of Ayurveda is connected with the cures accessible from nature. It also deals with the root cause of the problem and is a permanent cure in most of the cases. In most of the cases, a patient treated with Ayurveda not only gets cured but also gets the permanent immunity. The main advantage that Ayurveda has over homeopathy is that the former just uses the natural means to cure a disease and is the most eco-accommodating approach to get cured. It has been proved that –

AYURVEDA IS THE MOTHER OF ALL THE MEDICATION

and every other type of medication is derived from the science of Ayurveda.

Most of the people believe that ayurvedic medicines do not have any side effects, which is not true. Ayurvedic medicines can cause adverse effects if not used properly as the methodology follows individualistic approach. Body’s response to ayurvedic medicines might depend on various factors including age, selection of drug and chronicity of disease.

It is believed that Ayurveda follows the “Five Great Elements” theory, which insists that the “fault,” “tissue,” and the “impurity” should be in harmony with all the five elements used to form this human body, i.e. Prithvi (Earth), Jal (water), Agni (Fire), Vayu (air) and Akash (space). According to this methodology, there should be a balance in the three elemental energies, Vayu (air+space=”wind”), pitta (fire+water-“bile”) and Kapha (water+Earth=”phlegm”). Ayurveda explains that, when these three energies are in a balanced state or exist in equal proportion, the body will remain healthy and if they are not balanced, the body will become unhealthy in many ways.

#Myth – Ayurveda takes longer to cure – Time taken to cure a disease in Ayurveda depends on how much imbalance the patient is carrying and from how long. Generally, time taken by the medicine to act in the body is between 20-25 minutes.

How is Ayurveda different from Homeopathy?

  • Ayurveda believes in preventing a disease, on the other hand, homeopathy believes in curing it.
  • Ayurvedic medicines compliment the allopathic medicines while homeopathy is against it.
  • According to Ayurveda, the health and well-being of a person depend on the balance of three key components, the wind, bile, and phlegm, whereas homeopathy believes in the “vitalist” philosophy which says that some internal or external factors disturb the vital force of the body which affects the health of a person.
  • Ayurveda uses some surgical procedures such as “Kshar sutra” or purification techniques like “Panchkarma” for treating diseases, which is not in the case of homeopathic treatment.
  • Ayurvedic medicines use herbs, minerals like sulfur, copper, lead, arsenic, gold, vegetable drugs, and animal products such as milk, gallstones, and bones to make the medicines. Homeopathic medicines use various plants, synthetic materials, mineral substances which are diluted in alcohol or distilled water. The final medicine contains only a small percentage of the substance.
  • Safety Issues: Ayurvedic medicines may incorporate a small amount of toxic materials such as lead, mercury, arsenic while homeopathic medicines contain water and alcohol, and the use of toxic materials are very rare.

How is Homeopathy different from Allopathy?

  • Homeopathy seeks to embrace the body’s natural response system by either attacking the root cause of the illness or by encouraging the symptoms of healing, whereas, allopathy fights the body’s natural response system by attacking the symptoms of healing.
  • Homeopathy is a method of treating disease with remedies that produce effects similar to those caused by the disease itself. Allopathy is a method of treating disease with remedies that produce effects different from those caused by the disease.
  • Homeopathic treatment generally takes time to show results as it focuses on hitting the root cause of the disease, whereas allopathy can show results very quickly, as it immediately suppresses the symptoms of a disease, leaving out with another problem in the form of a side-effect.
  • Most of the homeopathic medicines show permanent results, i.e. once a disease is completely treated over a course of time, it will not occur again. Allopathy, on the other hand, provides a partial and quick relief from a disease which may not be permanent.

How is Allopathy different from Ayurveda?

  • Allopathy takes the body in pieces, is objective and incomplete in nature while Ayurveda takes the body as a whole and the physician has knowledge of all the systems of medicines.
  • Allopathy is a system of physical health and it believes in the replacing/changing of the organs or systems for treatment and not much worried about the cure. Ayurveda, on the other hand focuses on the wellness as a complete package, be it physical, psychological, spiritual or social wellness.
  • Allopathy is a system of side effects (internal or external) whereas, Ayurveda is a natural cure in which scope of side effects is very less or mild.
  • Allopathy focuses on suppressing the signs and symptoms of a disease and never appreciates to remove the disease causing factors completely. Ayurveda considers that until a body have the disease-causing factors, diseases will keep hitting again and again. It considers the detoxification as a primary part of the treatment.
  • Allopathic medicines partially cleanse the body while ayurvedic medicines decontaminate the whole body.

Side Effects of Allopathy, Homeopathy, and Ayurveda

Allopathy: It is associated with a chain of side effects connected with every medicine, which can be internal or external.

Homeopathy: Generally homeopathic medicine does not have any side effects when taken in adequate amount and proper guidance of a practitioner.

Ayurveda: Ayurveda is merely associated with a few side effects which are very mild in nature.

Which treatment one should follow:

preference-of-medicine-system

All the medicine systems, allopathy, homeopathy and Ayurveda have their own merits and demerits and your choice should depend on the disease, cause of illness, possible ways of treatment etc. Homeopathy is really effective in treating both acute and chronic illness as it treats the root cause of the illness which is not in the case of allopathy. Allopathy has a good investigation, testing, and practicing system. It relies on many tests, techniques, scans, surgery etc. and has been widely used all over the world, but it alleviates the symptoms of the disease rather than going deeper into the cause. Apart from this, allopathy is also associated with side effects and allergies.

Ayurveda and homeopathy believe in individualistic approach and treat patients accordingly. Apart from the medicine, these types of treatments focus on the whole lifestyle such as diet, attitude, exercise etc. But these methodologies also have some loopholes. There is a shortage of practitioners, lack of proper scientific research & investigations and proper boards to manage practitioners or standardise the medications.

It is important to know that one form of medication system may be effective for a particular person or a particular disease at a particular time, but may not at another point.
