Study Suggests Conspiracy Theorists Are More Positive & ‘Sane’ Compared To Conventional Thinkers

Collective-Evolution.com  A case study examining online commenting trends was performed by psychologists Michael J. Wood and Karen M. Douglas of the University of Kent that revealed so called “conspiracy theorists” are actually more mentally sane (reasonable & sensible) than those who are considered conventionalists.

Not that long ago, practically anyone who thought outside of the box, questioned the official stories, or did any type of investigation into certain subjects was labeled a “conspiracy theorist.” In fact, many of these people, including the majority of the writers here at Collective Evolution, are still considered conspiracy theorists by many even though the goal is simply to examine or verify the truth of something.

It is interesting how many of the people who are labeled as conspiracy theorists spend a lot of time with research and critical thinking. Sure there are always going to be more extreme people who lend a “bad name” to those who are legitimately assessing evidence, but it doesn’t mean the entire idea of conspiracy is invalid.

Many will check the facts, and look into the evidence on both sides of the coin. Generally the people who believe the mainstream idea of what is true, or is accepted as truth do not bother to look at the other side of the coin. They believe what they are told without question, and anyone who disagrees is, well, crazy, or a conspiracy theorist. Or in other words, paranoid.

The fascinating part is, it’s become some common place amongst society for people to not want to be labeled as a conspiracy theorist that anytime political leaders or the media wish to make something unquestionable, they will literally use the words “conspiracy theorists” in their speeches or reports when referring to anyone who wishes to question the story.

The Study

A study was published in July of 2013 by psychologists Michael J. Wood and Karen M. Douglas of the University of Kent in the United Kingdom, it was entitled “’What About Building 7?’ A Social Psychological Study Of Online Discussion Of 9/11 Conspiracy Theories.” The study compared “conspiracist,” (pro-conspiracy theory) and “conventionalist,” (anti-conspiracy theory) comments on various news websites.

The researchers were surprised that they found more “conspiracist” type comments than conventional ones. According to the researchers, “Of the 2174 comments collected, 1459 were coded as conspiracist and 715 as conventionalist.”

Among those who take the time to comment on news articles, those who discount official government accounts (the event’s on 9/11, or the assassination John F. Kennedy for example) aka “Conspiracy Theories,” outnumber those who believe in the official reports, two-to-one. Therefore, this means that the “pro-conspiracy” commenters are those who are now expressing what would now be considered conventional wisdom, while the “anti-conspiracy” commenters actually represent a small minority that is often shunned and discredited.

Basic CT principles: nothing happens in a vacuum and its all interconnected

Cyrellys Geibhendach.  There are two basic Conspiracy Theory Principles that have been found to hold true.  The first is nothing happens in a vacuum.  It means that nothing happens for no reason.  And it supports the second principle which is ‘it’s all interconnected’.  This is how we can see things like the global pursuit of war with Syria and Iran as intertwinned with the globalist controlled implosion of the global economic system, including the US portion of it.  And it is also how we can note the Russian President Putin disengaging himself from the Illumines plantation and thus becoming a moving target of the Illumines.

These two principles are of prime importance to the average person.  Imagine standing in a grain field while two godzilla’s fight it out, tearing up the ground.  Now imagine four or more such godzilla’s going at it in the middle of the grain field upon which you depend — for your survival.  You are standing in the middle of the grain field while the fight rages with self-inflicted situational awareness.  This is the hidden powers fighting their war while the people are caught in the middle.  Is it any wonder those powers like to say the people are incapable of taking care of themselves when, the average person believes the scenario the local witch doctor (mainstream media) preaches rather than seeing the behemoths that are battling amid them.

What you don’t know CAN hurt you.

The Merkel Question

merkel and putin relationship
Cold War past shapes complex Merkel-Putin relationship. Image Source: http://www.moneycontrol.com

Quintas Dias.  Are Merkel and the Germans waking up finally as to who the real enemy really is?  Let us not forget post WWII, Germany had been bombed flat.  Her people were starving and her economy was in ruins,  and most of her habitable structures were ruined.  The US ensnared Germany’s post-war economy within American financial structures, dominating it for years.  The Americans also dominated Germany’s post-war foreign policy.  Germany was NATO’s first member.  Germany was turned to face the very real Soviet threat.  Germany’s government officials became American whores and sops.

Let me digress.  The Americans in post-war Germany, on the whole conducted themselves honorably, and did much to restore German pride, industry, and German confidence at considerable American expense in fortune.  Admittedly, the Americans had self-serving interests in maintaining Germany as a bulwark against Stalin’s machinations in invading and occupying all of western Europe.  The Americans sustained Berlin during the Berlin crisis when the Soviets attempted to subdue Berliners by blockading Germany’s communications, imperiling some 3 million people with imminent starvation.  The Berlin Airlift was a magnificent example of American exceptionalism.  Many American airmen died in accidents resulting from the grind of air operations in feeding, clothing, and heating Germans and their homes during the brutal German winter.
Germany was a foundational plank of the creaky European collective.  Germany’s economy revived postwar and Germany became an economic powerhouse.  Germany was the centerpiece of superpower conflict for postwar domination of foreign affairs.  Germany and American foreign policy vis the Soviets despite some rankling differences was pretty much in lockstep until the collapse of the Soviet Union, and the reincorporation of East Germany with the German polity.  And then what happened.  The Soviet threat was now nonexistent.  American forces in Germany had no further purpose.  The Americans withdrew much of their armed forces.
Germany and Germans began to charter a more independent course in world affairs.  Germany was cautious about engaging its military in American and UN foreign adventures until NATO expanded further east and into Afghanistan.  Then the set piece of players on the chessboard began to change, and subsurface strains within the North Atlanticist union began to surface.  Germany’s post-Soviet relations with Russia were constructive, stable and peaceful.  That is until the Americans targeted the Ukraine as  a pivot to destabilize Russia with.  The fall of the Ukrainian government, the descent of the Ukraine into chaos, and near civil war has reset the entire German/American and the German/Russian relationship.
Putin has conducted a remarkable post-Soviet collapse foreign policy.  He has refused to be provoked to invading the Ukraine or in reneging on Russian obligations associated with Russo-German trade arrangements.  Moreover, he has led a stunning drive in  creating and sustaining alternative markets and alliances with emerging nations to offset American and western preponderance of power in financial, economic, and diplomatic affairs.  BRICS offers severe challenges to US dollar, military, and economic dominance.
There is credible evidence to suggest that Merkel and Germany, a key player in the reset of European affairs after the collapse of the Soviet Union is keenly aware that Russian and Germany are mutually dependent on each other, and have much to offer for a peaceful and stable trade and diplomatic relationship, which would benefit Europe in general.
However, the Illumines cannot have an independent Germany surface only to wreak the Illumines long laid plans for instigating a third world war and a global government.  Twice in the 20Th century, the Illumines have maneuvered Germany and Russia in an attempt to destroy both nations totally, and nearly succeeded.
Apparently, the issue of German gold held hostage by the American and Illumine dominated Federal Reserve private banking cartel, the future of German trade with Russia, Germany’s dependence on Russian fuel, and the threat of a German imbroglio in a new European war is driving a cautious Merkel to reassess the German/American relationship.  Observers of the
Russian and German dance speculate that perhaps Putin has co-opted Merkel to the Russian point of view, and perhaps has dangled the advantage of a German partnership in BRICS as a measure to wiggle out from underneath the American Atlanticist suffocating yoke.
That Merkel is drifting closer to Russia and appears to be frustrating the Americans has enormous implications for the world.  If a German/American reset occurs, it signifies there are hidden forces at work subverting the intentions of the Illumines.
The world needs to step back from previously held views on Russia, and should encourage a further German/Russian rapprochement based on mutual respect, and mutual interests in maintaining the European peace and sustainable trade.
If this is possible, then the Illumines will be spinning around with the notions that perhaps the world has matured and realized who the main threat to humanity is, and that in reality, the Illumines are paper tigers.
