Top 10 Conspiracy Theories
#1 – The New World Order and the Illuminati
The number one spot on this list of top 10 conspiracy theories would have to be the New World Order/Illuminati. The New World Order (NWO) is the term used to describe a new Orwellian world where individual freedoms would be non-existent and everything would be controlled from a central hub. The NWO will be brought about by the elites, who can also be termed the deep state, Illuminati, the .01% or the hidden hand. It proposes a one world government, with one set of rules for all peoples. The idea is that all disasters are constructed by these elites, such as wars, recessions and diseases. The solution to these problems is much worse than the engineered problems – vaccines, removal of guns and liberties, increased surveillance, increased impoverishment, high taxes and a general lessening of the standard of living for all people bar the .01%. Devaluation of the currency is a key tactic used by the elites in order to gain power over all citizens, as it worsens living standards and increases the wealth of the rich, in the guise of helping the poor and solving an invented problem. Another tactic is the promotion of unity as a method of solving imagined problems. An integrated Europe is an example of how the New World Order could be established, and this is why many see the exit of Britain from Europe is seen as a blow to the New World Order/Forces of Globalism. The hallmark of the New World Order would be centralization, surveillance, regulation, high taxes, social repression and little or no civil liberties. The term New World Order is mentioned in many newspapers and speeches by politicians and other people of influence, and this is cited as evidence by theorists that such a plan exists. Conspiracy documentaries such as Zeitgeist also encourage the idea of a New World Order which is currently being established. Other evidence that a new world order is being created by the powers that rule the world is the use of illuminati symbolism seen in media and popular culture, mainly the inverted pentagram. However, there is little evidence of the Illuminati beyond their organization in 1776 by Adam Weischauft and its subsequent disassembly a year later.
#2 – The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion
No conspiracy theory has been as hotly debated as the protocols of the elders of Zion. The central tenet of this theory is that there is a plot by Jewish elites to take over the world year by year through the use of certain tactics. The reason that this theory has been so “successful” is that it is so accurate. The words in the document are chilling and outline very clearly how power is to be assembled in the hands of the elites. Among many other things the document mentions the power of the press, the power of gold and that one Jew is worth a thousand Goyim ( Gentile or non-Jewish person):
In the hands of the States of to-day there is a great force that creates the movement of thought In the people, and that is the Press. The part played by the Press is to keep pointing our requirements supposed to be indispensable, to give voice to the complaints of the people, to express and to create discontent. It is in the Press that the triumph of freedom of speech finds its incarnation. But the GOYIM States have not known how to make use of this force; and it has fallen into our hands. Through the Press we have gained the power to influence while remaining ourselves in the shade; thanks to the Press we have got the GOLD in our hands, notwithstanding that we have had to gather it out of the oceans of blood and tears. But it has paid us, though we have sacrificed many of our people. Each victim on our side is worth in the sight of God a thousand GOYIM
The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion is widely regarded as a hoax, proven so in a Swiss court of law. It is said to be a hoax based on a satire aimed at Napoleon, and passages in the Protocols do bear a near identical similarity to the French satire. This did not deter many others from printing and citing the work as a fact of a Jewish conspiracy. The work influenced Hitler and led to the Holocaust. It was not only fanatics that were influenced by the books, but many in the West, including Henry Ford, who went as far as to promote and disseminate copies. As many have pointed out, even if it is a forgery it does not matter, as anyone who goes as far as to read the manual cannot deny it is prophetic and unfolding in Western civilization exactly as spelled out in the Protocols. It seems to be the plan that the elites are following, regardless of whether the work is legitimate or not. However, it may be important to remember that despite the fact that Protocols seem to be true, the implication that it is all orchestrated by the “Jews” is false. A tiny majority of Jewish elites are instigating the protocols, and not people of the Jewish religion. According to Nazi leader Erich von dem Bach-Zelewsky:
Contrary to the opinion of the National Socialists, that the Jews were a highly organized group, the appalling fact was that they had no organization whatsoever. The mass of the Jewish people were taken complete by surprise. They did not know at all what to do; they had no directives or slogans as to how they should act. This is the greatest lie of antisemitism because it gives the lie to that old slogan that the Jews are conspiring to dominate the world and that they are so highly organized. In reality, they had no organization of their own at all, not even an information service. If they had had some sort of organization, these people could have been saved by the millions, but instead, they were taken completely by surprise. Never before has a people gone as unsuspectingly to its disaster.
#3 – Hitlers escape and the Rise of the Nazis
This is a contrasting conspiracy theory to the Protocols of the learned Elders of Zion. While some contend that it is Jews who are conspiring world domination though control of the banking system, others contend that it is escaped Nazis from World War II who are ensuring world domination via mind control, chemicals and the pharmaceutical industry. Many believe that Hitler did not die in Berlin, and that the body found was that of his double, of which he had several. Many national newspapers actually claimed at the time that he had escaped, but this fact has been removed with the passage of time. It is well documented that the vast majority of Nazis escaped and moved to the United States. Huge chemical factories such as I.G. Farben had experimented with chemical agents as a method of mind control during world war II, and one of the developed techniques was fluoride, which was used in concentration camps to suppress dissent. The escaped Nazis set up business fronts in America which have grown powerful year on year as the legal rights of corporations have been increased. And they play a key role in the pharmaceutical industry where substances are used to kill the creativity of individuals and keep them sick, such as anti-depressants and certain kinds of pain killers.
#4 – Rule of the Reptiles
Given that this is a rather nebulous theory, there are many strands and variants of the Reptilian rule theory. This far out theory was brought to the public awareness through conspiracy theorist David Icke. As the theory goes , thousands of years ago Reptiles blended their DNA with ours. Not physically, but through DNA manipulation, allegedly. This is why humans have certain reptilian functions associated with their actions and instincts. Most of the planetary leaders are said to be reptilian humanoids, or possessed by them. These reptiles come from the Alpha Draconis star system, and currently live in underground bases on planet earth. Popular reptiles are said to include George Bush and Queen Elizabeth.
In February 2011, on the Opie and Anthony radio show, comedian Louis C.K. jokingly asked former U.S. Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld a number of times if he and Dick Cheney were lizard people who enjoyed the taste of human flesh. Amused by Rumsfeld’s refusal to directly answer the question, C.K. suggested it as a possible admission of guilt. He went on to further muse that perhaps those who are lizard people cannot lie about it; when asked if they are lizards, they either have to avoid answering the question or say yes. A surprisingly large number of American individuals are said to believe in the reptilian theory, up to 4% of registered voters, according to one poll.
#5 – Global Warming is a Myth
The Fourth Report of the IPCC [Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change] might just as well decree the suppression of all climatology textbooks, and replace them in our schools with press communiqués. … Day after day, the same mantra – that ‘the Earth is warming up’ – is churned out in all its forms. As ‘the ice melts’ and ‘sea level rises’ the Apocalypse looms ever nearer! Without realizing it, or perhaps without wishing to, the average citizen in bamboozled, lobotomized, and lulled into mindless acceptance. … Non-believers in the greenhouse scenario are in the position of those long ago who doubted the existence of God …
– Marcel Leroux
Such a controversial topic had to make the top 10 conspiracy theories. To briefly sum up the main points and numbers of the global warming “myth”. The idea behind global warming is that the surface of the earth is heating up too rapidly due to the burning of fossil fuels, an event which is unprecedented in ordinary times. In 1997 Vice President Al Gore signed a petition called the Koyoto Protocol in Japan, which aimed to ration U.S energy production in order to reduce carbon emissions amid fears of global warming. In response to this an online petition was conducted which stated that over 31,000 scientists signed a petition indicating that global warming was not real. Over 9,000 of these scientists had PHDs. There were multiple criticisms of this petition, including that many names were duplicates and that many of the so called PHD’s could not be verified – in other words it was claimed to be a hoax. However this is not quite proven.
The Intergovernmental panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is the most reputable body on climate change. It consists of hundreds of scientific experts from various nations. The IPCC does not do its own research, but instead aggregates all the published literature on climate change, both peer reviewed and non-peer reviewed. It then creates reports based on all the published literature. The findings of the IPCC are that there is a 95% chance that humans are responsible for global warming and that Carbon dioxide levels are higher than they have been in the last 800,000 years. The IPCC is an internationally accepted authority. It is made of independent volunteers who are not paid for their services. Multiple studies in peer reviewed journals show that there is a 97% consensus among climate change experts that global warming is real and is a result of human activity. However, as with all such topics the numbers are heavily debated and there is always a counter argument. Though the 97% is cited often many claim that in such studies only 5% were actually climate change experts and that the studies themselves are selective. All the samples are around 100-200 scientists. Further, numerous scientists whose papers are used in these studies claim that their work has been misrepresented. Thus this figure is cited as more credible, however it would seem from the numbers that the online petition is a more potent indicator given the numbers, if the participants are in fact climate scientists. We have 2 extremes and it is difficult to examine which one is actually true without getting into the climate science and statistical models. But it is safe to say there is far more to global warming than the 97% figure generally taken as fact.
#6 – The official aids story is a lie
Number 6 in this list of top 10 conspiracy theories is that AIDs was engineered as an experimental virus to decimate the masses. While this is an extreme conspiracy theory the official version is very shaky: that aids was brought to the United States by African Americas who contracted the disease from primates. Aids could then be passed to other humans through blood transfusion or sexual intercourse. One AIDs theory is that it was created in order to wipe out the African American population. American Corporations would then be free to claim all the abundant resources of Africa. There have been many books and documentaries on the topic, however mainstream research has found all of them to be unfounded. One theory suggested that AIDs was a result of smallpox vaccination, and the idea was reported in the times Newspaper. This has been elaborated upon by conspiracy theorists who contend that the small pox vaccine was deliberately contaminated with HIV. The most popular theory, promoted by Alan Cantwell in his books Queer Blood: The Secret AIDS Genocide Plot (1993) and AIDS and the Doctors of Death: An Inquiry into the Origin of the AIDS Epidemic (1988), was that the virus was genetically engineered by U.S scientists and introduced to the population through the administration of the Hepatitis B vaccine performed on gay and bisexual men. This theory is also put forward by investigative reporter Jon Rappoport in his book Aids Inc, as well as by Robert Strecker, William Cooper and Matilde Krim. The idea that HIV engineered by white elites to suppress African Americans is quite prominent among African Americans compared to other ethnicities, according to multiple surveys.
#7 – Free Energy
The idea behind free energy emanates primarily from the work of Nicola Tesla. Proponents believe that Tesla had the blueprints for free energy but it was suppressed by the oil barons. And there have been many discoveries since his work that suggest free energy is available but is actively suppressed by the elites. There are many free energy ideas available online. If energy was free it would result in individual empowerment, as nobody would need to rely on oil or other sources of energy, and would be richer on the whole. Scientists such as Wilhelm Reich, Lord Kelvin, Baron Carl Von Reichenbach , Nikola Tesla, John Keeley, Viktor Schauberger, Thomas Henry Moray, James Maxwell and John Searl among many others, are reported to have discovered free energy. Their findings are said to have been systematically suppressed.
#8 – 9/11 was an inside job
There are a number of conspiracy theories surrounding 9/11 and they have increased over the years. These theories mainly contend that 9/11 was a false flag operation. The demolition of the Twin towers was said to be a controlled demolition, and was not brought down by the planes that struck them. This theory is not only held by fringe conspiracy theorists, as a number of respected engineers, physicists and demolition experts have stated that the building simply should not have collapsed in the way that it did. It collapsed in a way similar to a controlled explosion. On top of this, the data in relation to the attack is not being released to the public, on the basis that it could compromise public safety. The data is held by the national institute of standards and technology. The university of Alaska is currently sponsoring an investigation into the controversy. A central part of this theory is building 7, which collapsed hours after the twin towers. The questions remains unanswered as to why and how building 7 collapsed. The official story is that fire from the main building must have spread to this building, but this does not hold up against conventional destruction of such buildings. They would not collapse in on themselves. Other building which are not as structurally strong have been gutted by fire and have not collapsed, so this represents a crack in the official story. There are also questions surrounding footage of the destruction. The North Tower appears to erupt as it falls in one video. Some debris appears to be flying horizontally at a fast speed. Heavy debris of this type should not be moving this fast, according to some experts. And multiple floors seem to be ejecting debris at the same time, which would not be the case if the debris was being thrown floor by floor due to collapse. There are many sites and investigations purporting to get to the bottom of the story and uncover the truth for the families of the victims, including sites such as 911truth.org.
#9 – Water Fluoridation
In the 1950s and 1960s there was widespread fear that water fluoridation was a plot by communists to weaken the capitalist public. Fluoridation was brought in to protect against dental cavities. Charles Perkin, Chemist and author of the book The Truth About Water Fluoridation, stated in 1954 that :
The real reason behind water fluoridation is not to benefit children`s teeth. If this were the real reason there are many ways in which it could be done that are much easier, cheaper, and far more effective. The real purpose behind water fluoridation is to reduce the resistance of the masses to domination and control and loss of liberty…. I was told of this entire scheme by a German chemist who was an official of the great IG Farben chemical industries and was also prominent in the Nazi movement at the time. I say this with all the earnestness and sincerity of a scientist who has spent nearly 20 years` research into the chemistry, biochemistry, physiology and pathology of fluorine–any person who drinks artificially fluorinated water for a period of one year or more will never again be the same person mentally or physically.
In 1952, Dr. E.H. Bronner ( a chemist, prisoner of war and Einsteins nephew) stated that:
There is a sinister network of subversive agents, Godless ‘intellectual’ parasites, working in our country today whose ramifications grow more extensive, more successful and more alarming each new year and whose true objective is to demoralize, paralyze and destroy our great Republic–from within if they can, according to their plan–for their own possession.
As a research chemist of established standing, I built within the past 22 years, 3 American chemical plants and licensed 6 of my 53 patents. Based on my years of practical experience in the health-food and chemical field, let me warn: fluoridation of drinking water is criminal insanity, sure national suicide. Don`t do it.
Even in small quantities, sodium fluoride is a deadly poison to which no effective antidote has been found. Every exterminator knows that it is the most efficient rat-killer. … Sodium fluoride is entirely different from organic calcium-fluoro-phosphate needed by our bodies and provided by nature, in God`s great providence and love, to build and strengthen our bones and our teeth. This organic calcium-fluoro-phosphate, derived from proper foods, is an edible organic salt, insoluble in water and assimilable by the human body. The body refuses to assimilate it.
Also worth noting is that recent studies have unequivocally confirmed that children who drink fluoride have lower IQs than those whose water is not fluoridated. Many studies have also confirmed it is ineffective in preventing cavities.
#10 – Genetically Modified Organisms
GMO foods have been consumed in American for over 15 years. Though no adverse effects have been noted this is not the same as being proven safe. It means no causal link has been established between GMO consumption and a specific disease. GMO foods are mainly found in corn, sugar, canola and soy products, and this includes many cereal products, tortilla chips and protein bars which contain GMO ingredients. It is also contested that aspartame, riboflavin, beta-carotene and glucose could be derived from GMO corn and added to many products. There is huge controversy over the issue in the U.S.A, particularly over whether foods containing GMO ingredients should be labelled or not. It is without question that the tactics used by the main producer of GMO foods and science, Monsanto, are questionable at best. There is also question over whether GMO foods are bad for the environment. GMO foods are made to be resistant to roundup/glyphosate, a weed killer produced by Monsanto. There has been a 10 fold increase in the use of roundup in the past 15 years, and Monsanto are the only company who have the seeds for roundup resistant crops. The increased use of roundup could affect crops and find its way into the food supply. This has also created hyper weeds which are resistant to roundup, and many organic and small time farmers are now struggling against these super weeds.
Top 10 Conspiracy Theories Conclusion
These are a list of the top 10 conspiracy theories. There are many other conspiracy theories that did not make the list of our top 10 conspiracy theories, such as the JFK assassination and the Moon landing. They came second to theories about GMO’s, water fluoridation, free energy and the New World Order, which are deemed to be more destructive to a larger number of people.
