Below is a list of the five top best conspiracy theories. What constitutes “best” is how widespread the conspiracy is and how many people believe in it. Many of theories overlap and interlink in typical conspiracy theory fashion.
Best Conspiracy Theories
1. The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion
The reason this makes number One on the list is because of the chilling nature of the words contained within the document. And also because of the wide-ranging effect, it had by promoting antisemitism throughout the 20th century. The protocols had an influence on Adolf Hitler who disseminated the document widely. The end result was the death of 6 Million Jews in the infamous Nazi Holocaust. However what is so captivating about the Protocols for conspiracy theorists is their coherency and parallels with real life events. For example, the Protocols have much to say about the role of gold, the role of debt, the decline in civil liberties, the rise in security, the death of religion and the death of the aristocracy. And it outlines how all this would come to pass in great and specific detail. Thus, while it is considered as a mere act of antisemitism by many, the fact remains that the document is nothing short of prophetic, and for those with eyes to see the text is quite stark. Even if it was a forgery as widely claimed, it still does not dismiss the statements made in the protocols. The Jews were reported to be behind the Bolsheviks, who destroyed the last of the aristocracy in Russia with the murder of Czar Nicholas II and his entire family. The full text of the document is available online It was not only Hitler and Henry Ford who were swayed by the document. Winston Churchill went on to write.
“There is no need to exaggerate the part played in the creation of Bolshevism and in the actual bringing about of the Russian Revolution by these international and for the most part atheistical Jews. It is certainly a very great one; it probably outweighs all others. With the notable exception of Lenin, the majority of the leading figures are Jews. Moreover, the principal inspiration and driving power comes from the Jewish leaders. Thus Tchitcherin, a pure Russian, is eclipsed by his nominal subordinate, Litvinoff, and the influence of Russians like Bukharin or Lunacharski cannot be compared with the power of Trotsky, or of Zinovieff, the Dictator of the Red Citadel (Petrograd), or of Krassin or Radek — all Jews. In the Soviet institutions, the predominance of Jews is even more astonishing”
David R. Francis, United States ambassador in Russia, warned in a January 1918 dispatch to Washington:
“The Bolshevik leaders here, most of whom are Jews and 90 percent of whom are returned exiles, care little for Russia or any other country but are internationalists and they are trying to start a worldwide social revolution”
The Protocols of the Elders of Zion is the largest, oldest, most all-encompassing conspiracy theory of the modern age. And it is alive and kicking as the bankers continue to get richer while the whole world gets poorer.
2. The Nazi’s live on
The polarity between Conspiracy One and Conspiracy Two is quite interesting. While some believe that there is a Jewish cabal consisting of Bankers and other Elites who aim is to subjugate the planet through debt, there is also a group who think that escaped Nazi’s are trying to do the same. The idea being that Adolf escaped from Berlin via a plane and still lived on for some time. It is documented that thousands of Nazis escaped the war and fled to the U.S.A and South America. And this includes numerous high-level offenders. The Nazi’s role in world domination is more linked to the pharmaceutical industry and mind control, usual with associations to the CIA’s MK-ULTRA mind control program. The conspiracy is often linked to a massive manufacturing firm known as IG Farben, a conglomerate of a number of different chemical companies who came together under the name I.G Farben. They supported the Nazi war effort and were sued extensively by Hitler to produce chemical weaponry. They were also reported to produce drugs which were used on the Jews in the camps as experiments. IGF ended up taking over all chemical factories in Germany. Even before he entered power, IGF had entered contracts with Hitler. He would have their support and facilities during the war. Afterward, he would treat them favorable when he was in power. Despite the convictions in the postwar tribunal none of the top officials served more than 5 years in prison. Interestingly, a large number of the IGF board of directors were actually Jewish.
3. Extra-Terrestrials and UFO’s
This theory initially started with a crash in Roswell, New Mexico of an unidentified flying object. Since the crash, the theories have increased year on year with more and more sightings. The idea behind this theory is that the Aliens are super advanced and have powers of teleportation and invisibility as well as very advanced spacecraft for intergalactic travel. And because humanity is simply not mature enough to interact with Aliens they only talk to leading political figures. However, this has since broken down due to the childish actions of those in power, who use technology freely granted to secure more money and power for themselves or their own nations. Because of the nebulous nature of Extra-Terrestrials, they are linked to several conspiracy theories. As they can assuredly time travel, teleport, hypnotize, go invisible and shape shift they can be included in any plot without needing any intellectual heavy lifting to make sense. And some say they walk among us without us knowing or that many humans are in fact “star seeds”, where they were originally from a different planet but have forgotten these memories with an earth incarnation. Evidence included to back up the theory of the existence of UFO’s:
• Ancient drawings on caves, archaeological remains
• Roswell Crash 1947
• Actual sightings in the sky of objects that cannot be identified.
• Officers in both the Axis and the Allied Powers in WWI both reported alien ships to their commanders. The reports were relatively uniform and the spacecraft easily outmaneuvered them.
• Popular Culture such as Men in Black and the X-files.
• The Maury Island incident.
• In 1973 15 eye witnesses report a silver flying object at flight in New Orleans.
• A government newspaper in China reported seeing a UFO “just like ones in foreign movies”
The list goes on and on in terms of the number claiming to have seen UFOs or Extra-Terrestrials. It should be noted that most UFO sightings do happen at night after bars close.
4. The Illuminati and the New World Order
The central theme of this conspiracy is that at the top there is a ruling elite who subjugate the masses through clever use of the legal agreements and mind control techniques. The New World Order/ruling elite is synonymous with the “hidden hand” often referred to by the intelligentsia of the past century and even before. This invisible hand governs global affairs behind the scenes. This new world order would consist of a one world government, with one currency and one set of rules. The power would be in the hands of the ruling elites who do as they wish. This would involve first the destruction of the nation-state and nationalism. Thus, many believers in this conspiracy would be strongly nationalist, and generally pro Brexit and pro Donald Trump, as despite the failings of both they would represent an opposition to the deep state/shadow government who wish to destroy individual identities and advance globalism. The NWO would control banks, governments, politicians, education and the media. However, the only way they could achieve this is if national borders break down and they take power under the veneer of a fake solution – The idea that we can only survive if we can work together under a centralized authority to fight some threat usually related to resources. Linked to the protocols, this would be done over time with an increase in debt and usury. Economic crises would emerge every now and again and globalism would be touted as the only way to prevent these occurrences from happening again. The Illuminati and the NWO are linked to dark magic and symbolism. The great ever seeing eye of the Illuminati appears on the U.S dollar note and in films such as Lord of the Rings. Many recording artists are reported to be Illuminati members with little evidence except the appearance of symbols in their works, such as the inverted pentagram. TV, Media, sports are all held up to be distractions while the Illuminati take your power away as they slowly impoverish the whole planet piece by piece without anyone except a few theorists suspecting a thing. These theorists often use the frog in the water analogy, where if things happen slowly and incrementally they go unnoticed until it is too late. The Illuminati and the NWO have been linked to practically all conspiracy theories, include the assassination of President Kennedy, the creation of AIDs, 9/11 and the moon landing. The Illuminati were a real society founded in 1776 by Adam Weishaupt but after this, the theories take flight in every possible direction. It is said to have ended a year later. The Bilderberg group is reported to be heavily linked to the modern day Illuminati and the following celebrities are said to be members due to symbolism found in their works:
• LeBron James
• Lindsay Lohan
• Lady Gaga
• Kim Kardashian
5. Climate Change
There are a number of people who believe that climate change is not real. And the numbers are alarmingly high. Despite the heavy consensus of all scientists that climate change is very real and represents one of the most worrying threats to the existence of humanity, many contend that it is a hoax, for a variety of different reason. Some suggest that there are times in the earth’s history which have been at this temperature before. However, it is the speed at which the earth is heating up that is worrying the scientists, a trend not seen before and which is directly linked to the burning of fossil fuels. It cannot be denied that there have been increased amounts of natural disaster in recent decades, and the only answer is climate change. Even President Trump believes that climate change is a hoax by the left, the term used to denote members of the democratic party who tend to favor environmental and welfare concerns over industrial interests. Both NASA and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change(IPCC) are adamant on the effects of Climate change. The IPCC consists of 2500 independent scientists from over 130 countries and has concluded that most of the warming in the last 50 years is due to human activity. There has been a rise in sea levels, an increase in temperatures, a rise in ocean temperatures, shrinking ice sheets, extreme events, and ocean acidification. To give an idea of how sure the scientific community is on climate change, 928 papers that were examined in a study all agreed that climate change was happening and had to be dealt with. The abstracts of 928 scientific studies were analyzed and every one of them agreed on climate change. The studies were conducted between 1993 and 2003 While some of the papers indicated that there may not be a man-made link, they all agreed on climate change itself. Thus the idea that climate change is a hoax is simply ludicrous. It is simply not possible to hoodwink every single scientist on the planet or force them all to silence about climate change. It is also useful to note that science does not work by vote. Over time what happens is that there is so much evidence on one side that there is no more argument. Which is what has happened with regard to climate change. The evidence is simply too conclusive to ignore. The vast majority of scientists believe in climate change. Authors of seven climate consensus studies all found over 90% consensus on the existence of climate change and its links to human activity, with five of these studies reporting over 97% consensus. This is not mere consensus, but expert consensus of an undeniable kind.
The climate change conspiracy has roots in a petition which has since been proven to be a hoax. Over 30,000 American scientists were alleged to have signed a petition that climate change was not real.
The claims that all petitioners were scientists with over 10,000 PH.D.’s has not been verified, as well as numerous fake claims. The petition was undertaken with political motivations and distributed using misleading tactics, and had no accountability with regard to signatures. It merely asked if you had an undergraduate degree before you were allowed to sign. The political underpinning was to oppose the signing of the Kyoto Protocol, as this would hamper business interests. May 1998 Seattle Times Newspaper:
“ Several environmental groups questioned dozens of the names: “Perry S. Mason” (the fictitious lawyer?), “Michael J. Fox” (the actor?), “Robert C. Byrd” (the senator?), “John C. Grisham” (the lawyer-author?). And then there’s the Spice Girl, a k a. Geraldine Halliwell: The petition listed “Dr. Geri Halliwell” and “Dr. Halliwell.”
In 2005 the Scientific American reported:
“ Scientific American took a sample of 30 of the 1,400 signatories claiming to hold a Ph.D. in a climate-related science. Of the 26 we were able to identify in various databases, 11 said they still agreed with the petition —- one was an active climate researcher, two others had relevant expertise, and eight signed based on an informal evaluation. Six said they would not sign the petition today, three did not remember any such petition, one had died, and five did not answer repeated messages. Crudely extrapolating, the petition supporters include a core of about 200 climate researchers – a respectable number, though rather a small fraction of the climatological community.”
These are the best conspiracy theories because of their implications for humanity if they are true. They are also the best conspiracy theories because of their large and devout following. We will be hearing about these theories for some time to come. Many of the best conspiracy theories may have a grain of truth in them. For example, it is likely that there is a group of power hungry elites who want more money and power, and the best way to do this would be through usury and an infiltration of the political system. This can be called a “New World Order”, or elites doing what they have done since time began. Attain more and more power.
