Why Conspiracy Theories Are Ridiculous

“The mentally disturbed do not employ the Principle of Scientific Parsimony: the most simple theory to explain a given set of facts. They shoot for the baroque.”
― Philip K. Dick, Valis

Public Service Announcement:

Do you have a friend or family member who insists on believing conspiracy theories and you’re tired of trying to point them towards a modicum of sanity, then worry no more.

You see, the problem is, they don’t believe you. But the chances are, they will be a fan of John Cena, Catherine O’Hara, Paul Rudd, Billy Porter or the wonderful and lovely Alex Trebek.

So, stop banging your head against the wall and show them this video of their favourite stars making sense at The True True Truth

I take a fairly libertarian stance on most matters. I don’t really care about what other people do, as long as it doesn’t affect me or harm others. Effectively, I believe you should be free to jump about and wave your arms as much as you like, until you hit me in the face, but only until then.

This doesn’t mean I don’t make fun of ideas which I think are ridiculous. Of course I do. I don’t think gay rights or gender inequality are laughing matters, so I don’t poke fun at them, and the same goes for racism (though homophobes and racists are free game). But religion and conspiracy theories, now these are things I enjoy taking a healthy, mostly good-natured, poke at.

If you present me with a good enough argument or evidence of something, it could easily change my mind, it’s happened before and it’ll happen again, how else would we ever grow and learn? But neither evidence or a good argument have ever been presented to me by anyone around conspiracy theories.

Enough is Enough

Unlike most of the things I am vocal about or advocate for, I’ve always felt like conspiracy theorists and their theories were fairly benign. Who cares if they think man didn’t land on the moon and what harm are they causing by ranting about how 9/11 was an inside job?

But then came the anti-vaxxers, Sandy Hook Elementary, Covid-19 and Trump. And these actually do harm people’s lives.

Anti-vaxxers have seen to it that diseases which were almost eradicated are now on the rebound. And after dozens of small children were slaughtered at a primary school, the parents of the victims began receiving death threats because of a conspiracy theory. Websites began claiming that the shooting was a hoax and the parents were merely actors.

Imagine taking your 4-year-old daughter to school one morning and then finding out later she was shot in the face. Imagine the unfathomable grief and pain. Then imagine getting dozens of death threats from people claiming your child was never killed and that it’s all just a hoax. Let that sink in for a moment.

It is claimed that Covid-19 is a man-made virus developed by the Chinese. Because of this claim, thousands of Chinese folks all over the world are being attacked.

And Trump basically says whatever he wants about almost anything being a hoax and a full 3rd of Americans, 50% of white South Africans and a good chunk of the rest of the world, believe every word.

Trump is a puppeteer, pulling the strings of the uneducated. He is the Pied Piper of the ignorant, racist and stupid.

People with low intelligence can be manipulated and whipped into a frenzy because their emotions have raced around the moon and back before their brains have even wiped the sleep from its eyes (although this statement implies that their brains do eventually come on line, which is misleading).

And while it was entertaining before to sit back and watch the latest conspiracy theory unfold in videos and on the pages of crazy websites, it’s actually not funny anymore.

What is a Conspiracy Theory?

The dictionary currently describes a conspiracy theory as a belief that some covert but influential organization is responsible for an unexplained event. Although this definition has been largely agreed upon for a number of years, the accepted criteria by the hysterical believers today sets the bar far lower.

Basically, anything that occurs, or has occurred, which is even slightly remarkable or out of the ordinary, in the eyes of the theorists, MUST have some sort of covert purpose, either orchestrated by moustache twirling men with secret handshakes or surreptitious arms of governments.

Conspiracy websites are all too happy to pander to this bullshit, which attracts the readership of a large number of idiots, so that the websites can sell advertising to these people and make money. I make absolutely no money selling advertising on this website because I refuse to write any articles about people, theories or products that aren’t factually accurate or carefully considered.

In decades gone by, before social media was able to whip up the crazies like a whisk in my grandma’s mixing bowl, a conspiracy theory was known as an idea about some sort of veiled plot carried out by an organisation or person in secret. Guy Fawkes, AKA Guido Fawkes, was a great example of this.

But today, actual conspiracies are rare and are usually unearthed by whistle blowers, or the press, before they get very far. This doesn’t prevent theorists hypothesising and then believing in, just about anything that either doesn’t make sense to them, or makes too much sense to them.

Here Are Some of My Favourites:  

1. Global Pandemic:

No understanding about DNA? Must be orchestrated by the Chinese government, who are smart enough to develop a virus that mimics viruses in bats but not smart enough to release it in America (or anywhere else) to avoid killing thousands of their own people and leading the trail straight back to a wet market in Wuhan China, where they sell….? Raw Bats!

2. Bill Gates Spends tens of millions trying to develop a cure:

He seems too good to be true, he’s obviously trying to fit the world with a microchip and control us all. That makes perfect sense.

3. Water vapour Trails from aeroplane engines:

Wonder what they are? Must be a secret world order spraying chemicals into the air to poison us or control our minds.

4. 9/11:

What do the CIA and Bush do all day? I bet they made missiles look like planes and rigged the towers to explode to start a pointless war that’ll last almost 2 decades. All the passengers on the 4 planes are hiding somewhere and all the texts from those passengers letting loved ones know what was happening were all faked.

5. Evolution:

Don’t understand it? The fossils must all be fake news. Carbon dating rocks? fake news! The bible says the world is only 6000 years old. The “truth” is that a god in the sky made the universe in 6 days.

He never makes mistakes, he can see the future and gives everyone free-will but then drowns everyone in the world in a great flood for not using their “free will” the way he wanted (weird how he didn’t see that coming, he’s obviously working in mysterious ways again).

And all the drowned animals? What the hell did they do wrong?

Mysterious!

And could god not have saved 2 families to prevent the Noah household having to commit incest to repopulate the earth?

6. London 7/7 attacks:

Weren’t on the trains or on the buss? Then just deny the attacks actually happened. Make a website claiming the maimed survivors were liars and call them threatening to kill them because it was all just the government using a power outage to cover something sinister.

7. Sandy Hook Elementary School Shooting:

Weren’t there? Then all of the news channels, media and government must be lying about the shooting and the murdered children. All the grieving parents and family are lying about having their kids murdered, they’re just acting. What to do? Send the grieving parents death threats and accuse them of lying, then start a website about how the shooting was a hoax.

8. 1st Moon landing:

Too stupid to understand how shadows and camera’s work? No problem, just claim it’s all FAKE NEWS! Moon landing never happened; it was the American government lying to the world.

9. 2nd Moon landing:

Still not sure about those pics? FAKE NEWS! 2nd Moon landing didn’t happen.

10. 6th Moon landing:

Clear pics, clear video footage, moon rock samples, microbes and moon dust brought back. Nope! Doctored film and fake samples!

11. Pyramids:

Those rocks seem awfully big. ALIENS!

12. Light in the sky:

Seems weird, wonder what it is? ALIENS!

13. Area 51:

Won’t let us in! ALIENS!

14. Creepy place makes hair on your neck stand up:

Tell everyone you saw a ghost, or ALIENS!

15. Got drunk last night and shoowee, my bum is sore:

Abducted and experimented on by ALIENS!

16. Circles in the corn:

ALIENS!

17. Cow turns up gutted:

ALIENS!

18. Donald Trump looks like he’s gonna lose the 1st election:

ELECTION IS RIGGED!

19. Trump wins:

We won in spite of it being rigged! USA! USA! USA!

20. Vegas Shooting:

Guy with gun mows down 471 people killing 58 of them. It’s the anti-gun NRA fanatics trying to take our guns away.

And the list goes on, and on, and on…

What’s the Harm?

What’s the harm? So what if someone believes that the earth is flat or that man never actually landed on the moon? It’s just an opinion, right? Surely both sides can agree on most other things even if they don’t agree on whether or not most conspiracy theories are real?

The problem with conspiracy theories, or rather those who believe in them, is that it reveals a method of thinking and perceiving the world which can actually lead to harm.

We now have:

Fake News: news that is factually inaccurate

then we have

Fake News: news that IS true but that some people find inconvenient and so they call it Fake News, and the ignorant masses are lapping it up.

This is either because they believe whatever the proprietor of these lies has to say without any thoughts of their own, or they simply enjoy the nihilistic way that the liar is giving the middle finger to the establishment.

The more the actual truth is labelled as fake news by the ignorant masses, the more dangerous things become.

Believing the earth is flat doesn’t do anything but reveal the believer to be an absolute moron, but believing that vaccinations cause autism, can actually do a significant amount of harm. And the type of person who accepts a label of ‘fake news’ without thinking, is almost certainly the same type of person who thinks vaccines cause autism

How Can This Be?

People who feel left behind, out of touch or irrelevant are likely to feel disdain towards events and people who seem to be more current, ground breaking and successful.

Ignorant folks, who hear that Bill Gates is one of the richest people on earth, don’t even stop to research what he now does for a living.

They somehow manage to ignore the fact that he has spent 30 years of his life and $50 billion of his own money supporting humanitarian causes. He has been directly responsible for saving hundreds of thousands of lives, in South East Asia alone, by providing anti malaria netting to half of a continent.

They don’t bother to even try and uncover that he drastically improved infant mortality rates throughout the entire developing world by funding vaccine programs, including vaccinating 40,000,000 children for polio, and, amongst a plethora of philanthropic endeavours, he funded free educational platforms like Khan Academy, so people can have free access to high quality education.

And none of these people will likely ever know that, when he dies and is no longer able to continue his stunningly brilliant work and saving lives, he will give 90% of his remaining wealth to charities and organisations so that they might continue his work when he is gone.

ALL of this, the ignorant masses ignore, and instead, make videos and websites, using the very computers he pretty much invented, to call him a child murdering archvillain and antichrist who wants to implant a computer chip that will control all of our minds.

How can this be?

How CAN this be?

What’s the Point?

People who are uncomfortable not knowing something tend to cling to conspiracy theories that seem to fill in the gaps. The less they understand about something, the more marginalised they feel and the more they want to be seen to have a voice or to be the chosen ones in possession of the “real” truth, which they feel elevates them.

I’m actually obsessed with finding obscure things out myself. I spend a huge amount of time studying peer reviewed work about black holes, the nature of consciousness and the mind. But it is paramount that the truths I learn are empirical and verified.

What the hell is the point wasting precious time researching things that may be false? I’d just look like a complete and utter idiot and be ostracised right? Actually no, I’d be welcomed with open arms by millions of people the world over who will believe almost anything they see on telly or read on obscure websites.

Conspiracy theories are conjured up by a few attention seekers and then extrapolated to the masses by the masses who either feel marginalised, don’t have time to seek out the truth or are too lazy to research things empirically.

Everyone wants to think they are in possession of some secret gossip (the inside scoop); evolution has primed us for this. So, TV shows are made about it, websites are started and they become big money machines because the ignorant masses outnumber the educated/self-educated 10-1.

The problem is that the educated and smart don’t forward chain mails claiming to have the secret “truth”. They aren’t whipped into a frenzy thinking they have been lied to and so the actual truth doesn’t spread.

People who are lifelong learners seldom create websites to share what they know. They don’t make videos and spread stuff like wildfire via the internet, because the people who would appreciate this type of knowledge either already understand it or are out researching it for themselves.

The reason there seem to be so few websites devoted to people wanting to learn and grow their minds (like the one you’re currently reading) is because, websites like this one are outnumbered 10,000 to 1 by websites with cat videos, alien or conspiracy theories.

The Name’s Bond

Everyone wants things to be more exciting than they really are. People are voyeuristic by nature, we want to know the secrets of others, we are captivated by magic shows and we love solving puzzles, it’s in our nature. We sometimes become bored by the mundane and long for things to be more exciting.

This is why movies like James Bond are so appealing to us. We get to live vicariously through James as he solves the mysteries and puzzles of secret organisations. What dark wing of a government will he bring down next?!

How will Raymond Reddington manipulate the clandestine wing of the CIA to make his escape in the latest instalment of The Blacklist? Even the name “Blacklist” conjures up excitement.

Most of us realise that these are made up stories. They play on our need to feel like there is more going on than there really is. Years of understanding human behaviour, together with psychologists working with the writers is what makes these shows strike a chord with us.

The same type of thing makes religion so popular. You have the chance to receive eternal life and magic powers to convert people to the God of the universe. This God walks with you all day and we can all talk to at any time because he operates in another dimension…

What could be more enticing and exciting?!

And with godless people like me, we turn to science. Black holes and string theory are the types of things that we investigate to get our fix of secrets about the universe and what’s going on behind the scenes.


The Mind of the Believer

Are the people who believe these crazy theories suffering from Mental Illnesses, or some type of depression or is there something less sinister going on? What Peer reviewed studies have found is that people with high IQ’s are less likely than low capacity folks to believe in conspiracy theories. A decent education predicts a wide range of cognitive, emotional, and social outcomes to situations from the mundane to the very complex.

Independent and replicated studies show that educated people recognise there are more likely to be simple solutions for complex problems. The studies also showed that uneducated people suffered from feelings of inferiority and powerlessness.

The need for these people to overcome that feeling is immense. They also feel contempt for what they perceive to be a class difference between themselves and other more educated people, which also seems a likely culprit for wanting to believe conspiracy theories.

They often believe wealthy people got that way by doing underhanded or dishonest things, when in truth, the reason most wealthy people are wealthy is because they are honest and trustworthy. For this reason, people either trust them with their own money or with making important decisions.

Now, no one can blame folks, who don’t have a great education, for feeling powerless and like the world is more complicated than it is, or even that other people look down on them, I get it, I really do.

But lots of people with poor educations manage to somehow pull themselves together and educate themselves. They ask smart questions and fill in the gaps in their knowledge on their own with peer reviewed studies from reputable websites or books.

Perhaps the people who are able and motivated to educate themselves are blessed with higher than average IQ’s, I just don’t know.

What I do know, is that these motivated folks’ question everything they are told and keep quiet about things they are unsure of, or until they have an appreciation for the truth. The problem is, most people, who have an appreciation for the truth, never flaunt their knowledge. This seems to remain the domain of the ignorant and uneducated of us.

The term for smart people being measured and humble, even reserved, about their knowledge, while ignorant people never shut up about what they think they know, is called The Dunning Kruger Effect.

The Dunning Kruger Effect

In the field of psychology, the Dunning–Kruger effect is described as “a cognitive bias in which people with low aptitude tend to overestimate their ability. It is related to the cognitive bias of illusory superiority and comes from the inability of people to recognize their lack of ability. Without the self-awareness of metacognition, people cannot objectively evaluate their competence or incompetence.

As described by social psychologists David Dunning and Justin Kruger, the bias results from an internal illusion in people of low ability and from an external misperception in people of high ability; that is, “the miscalibration of the incompetent stems from an error about the self, whereas the miscalibration of the highly competent stems from an error about others.” -Wikipedia

Basically, uneducated, low ability people think they’re very smart, while high ability highly educated people tend to think that they aren’t as smart as they are.

The reason for the latter is because, the more someone studies a subject, the more they recognise how infinite the gap is between what they know and what there is to be known. This gap doesn’t exist for low capacity people. They hear something and think they know all that is to be known immediately.

The Simplest Solution is Usually the Correct One

Occam’s razor (also Ockham’s razor or Ocham’s razor or law of parsimony: is the problem-solving principle which states that “Entities should not be multiplied without necessity.” The idea is attributed to English friar William of Ockham (c. 1287–1347), an academic philosopher and theologian who used a preference for simplicity to defend the idea of divine miracles. It is sometimes paraphrased by a statement like “the simplest solution is most likely the right one“. Occam’s razor says that when presented with competing hypotheses that make the same predictions, one should select the solution with the fewest assumptions, and it is not meant to be a way of choosing between hypotheses that make different predictions.

Of course, Occam’s Razor isn’t a law, it doesn’t say that the simplest solution is always the answer but, it means that, in the vast majority of cases, the simplest answer to problem is likely to be the correct one. And if it turns out not to be the simplest answer, then the actual answer should be arrived at through a combination of common sense, rational thought, rigorous scientific testing and historical data.

Billy Bob Has Himself a Problem

Crop circles appear in corn fields and Billy Bob has a sore ass? What could this mean?

It could mean that life began on other worlds millions of years before ours. That life would almost certainly have been nothing but scum on some type of liquid for billions of years, and, like life on earth, it would have to have evolved into animal and plant life.

It could be that this life, after billions of years, became intelligent, overcoming having been banal for billions of years previously. 1 species would have to eventually dominate, develop technologies like nuclear power, and do so without blowing themselves up in wars.

They would almost certainly have to develop AI and avoid this AI taking over (which is more difficult than it sounds). They would have to unlock the secrets of life and space, quantum power, blackholes and wormholes.

They would be so far away though, that when they looked at earth (through some kind of device able to see unfathomable distances) they would see the earth as it was millions or billions of years ago, long before humans ever arrived. And they would have to have set a course for earth likely before there was anything to see.

After somehow bending the very fabric of spacetime to travel millions of light years in their lifetime, they would arrive at our relatively young planet with very primitive life forms (us), they would then have to decide to make contact in some way.

In all their infinite wisdom about the earth, space and indeed time itself, imagine what they could achieve by making their presence known? In Times Square New York perhaps? Or Hong Kong? Imagine if they spoke to the likes of Stephen Hawking or Albert Einstein?

But no, they would have to have decided not to make any type of smart contact with us. Instead, after having traversed the universe, they’d have had to decide just to fuck about with flashing lights in the sky for the past 50 or 1000 years and drive a couple radars batty with tic tac shaped space craft.

After these genius displays of strangeness, they’d kidnap a rural fella like Billy Bob, stick probes into his bottom, mutilate a cow and make some crop circles.

This could certainly be the culmination of all of their efforts and what is really going on.

OR, as Occam’s razor might suggest, people are messing around with the cows and corn and Willy Bob should stop eating extra spicy chicken wings to prevent a sore bum.

The Most Persistent Conspiracy Theory

The 9/11 conspiracy is one of the most pervasive of all time, but the claims versus what the evidence shows us about that day are good examples of how conspiracy theorists think and rationalise things.

The claims outlined below are the most persistent and widely talked about. What is interesting is that there is not one unified theory as to what happened and why, just wild accusations that often lead to different conclusions about why it was orchestrated.

Some of what the Theorists claim:

Missiles were apparently involved in the attack: either missiles were utilised in place of planes or disguised as planes in one or all of the 3 aeroplane impacts which hit the twin towers and the pentagon (excluding flight 93 of course, which apparently never existed)

Theorists claim that the lack of clear video footage (though there is 1 video) of the 3rd plane (flight-77) hitting the pentagon, is proof that it was a missile. They claimed that there was no evidence of the plane’ wreckage at the pentagon crash site. When photographs of pieces of the wreckage emerged shortly after the attack, they claim these pieces were somehow planted there or the pics were doctored.

Although nobody saw any missiles that day, and although there were dozens of eyewitness reports of the plane flying towards the Pentagon, these accounts were dismissed by theorists as fake, and all of these witnesses are apparently in on the hoax.

They claim all the video footage of the planes hitting the towers was either doctored or is completely false. The 4th plane (AA flight 93) which crashed on its way to the Whitehouse after some very brave people overpowered the hijackers, is dismissed by the theorists as lies, though the crash site (and debris) was clearly visible. There are numerous theories about where all of the people on board flight 93 disappeared to.

It is claimed that Osama Bin Laden was an ignorant cave dwelling Muslim and didn’t have the brains to carry out such a well-orchestrated attack. Bin Laden actually wasn’t stupid at all. He studied economics, engineering, religion and language in Oxford England and was worth about $30 million when the planes hit the towers. Bin Laden’s parents were worth around $5 billion on September 11 2001.

And even if Bin Laden was stupid, is it really that hard to imagine a group of motivated extremists learning how to steer a plane, buy a ticket and take a boxcutter on board. Anyone who thinks this is too complicated a task to plan over years, is about as stupid as one would need to be to believe this nonsense.

Then they believe that the towers actually falling down couldn’t have happened unless demolition experts were involved using thermite, because “jet fuel can’t melt steel and cause the buildings to collapse”.

You know what can damage a building making it more likely to collapse? A commercial jet liner weighing thousands of tons flying at hundreds of miles an hour into the core of the building, slicing through steel beams like a hot knife through butter.

The remaining steel beams that weren’t completely destroyed by the impact wouldn’t have to be melted by the jet fuel and flames, they would just have to become slightly weakened and the enormous weight of the building above would have caused it to collapse.

This is why, although WTC-1 was hit 1st, it collapsed 2nd, because it was hit closer to the top and took longer to fail. It had less weight pressing down on it than WTC-2.

WTC-2 was hit far lower down (about 2 thirds of the height) which ensured that the extra weight brought the tower down 1st.

Picture courtesy of Wikipedia

People also claim “buildings don’t fall like that”. Really Mr ‘expert on buildings being demolished from 90 floors up’. And just how many 100+ story buildings have you seen collapsing from the top down? How in your “expert” opinion, with all your years of sky scraper collapses do you suggest gravity would pull a building down?

And how is it you became so proficient in demolition while also getting your PHD in ‘Disappearing aircraft’, ‘Muslin Psychology’, Rocket Science’ and ‘Clandestine Services’? We both know you majored in ‘thumb sucking’ and ‘bullshit’.

WTC Building number 7 (which collapsed about 8 hours after the attack) was also apparently demolished. Why the WTC7 would only have been demolished later or why there was a 20min gap between the towers falling is easily explained by the conspiracy theorists. You see, if all 3 buildings were demolished at once, that would have seemed suspicious.

There was a full independent, and transparent investigation into the collapse of WTC building 7 and the collapse was found to have been caused by debris from the falling towers which set the building on fire. The fire spreading throughout the building, along with water damage, was enough to weaken parts of the building causing those parts to collapse, which in turn caused catastrophic failure and ultimate collapse of the entire building.

The idea that George Bush and the American government (CIA) planned and orchestrated the attacks, because they wanted to go to war, is a popular one. In place of using thousands of people to plan an attack on American soil though, why not just make up a far simpler reason to go to war. WMD’s seemed popular, it sure worked in Iraq.

The theorists would have us believe that Bush planned an attack on his own country, while he was president, crippling the economy and making him look weak to the world, all so they could go to war in the desert.

Pretty crazy and elaborate thing to plan 9/11 just to go to war in 2 countries for almost 20 years accomplishing nothing.

In Conclusion

When you follow each one of the anomalies about missiles, thermite, crippling the economy, WTC-7 or the missing passengers, to some alternative conclusion, it’s never the same conclusion.

There doesn’t appear to be any logical, unified view of what would explain everything that happened (according to the conspiracies) on 9/11. There are dozens or hundreds of different things, all of which are mutually incompatible and all are different from the predominant story that Al-Qaeda planned and carried out the attacks.

This type of Conspiracy thinking has always seemed like a kind of pornography of doubt. There is this itch that people love scratching, people who, for the most part, feel disempowered and imagine that those in power are always doing something malicious.

Theorists attribute a super human level of competence to people in power, when no such level of competence has ever existed. Throughout history there are glaring examples of governments making gigantic mistakes but no examples of perfect plots being carried out.

Conspiracy theorists say that the reason clandestine plots have never been uncovered (except by them) is because they are just so well-orchestrated. But if the plots are so well orchestrated and so brilliant, how is it that uneducated conspiracy theorists can put it all together? They don’t seem to appreciate the irony here.

George Bush once couldn’t open up a door to leave a stage, on live TV. He was so inept that he would stutter and stammer during speeches or have to dodge shoes being hurled at him while on stage. This man orchestrated 9/11?

And after rounding up thousands of perfect psychopaths to plan the attacks (which must have taken months, if not years), the culmination of all this incredible work would be for his security detail to break the news to him while he is about to tuck in to “My Pet Goat”.. This is the moment he chooses to have immortalized?!

In order for George Bush to orchestrate 9/11, we are asked to imagine that he employed thousands of perfect psychopathic collaborators, to kill some of the most productive people in American society, in Downtown Manhattan, just for the pleasure of sending the US to war in the Middle East.

Not to Saudi Arabia, were 17 of the 19 hijackers came from, but to Iraq and Afghanistan when he could easily have found a pretext to go to war there anyway, and what great wars those were.

George Bush, the CIA and the thousands of collaborators would have had to carry out all of these incredible feats of illusion, misinformation, distraction, military precision, meticulous explosive planning and airline control, perfectly.

And in 2 decades, not a single one of these thousands of people have ever spoken to a best friend, their spouses or their priests, no one has had a death bed confession and there hasn’t been a single whistle blower, out of all those thousands of people?

No one has sought immunity for their part in the crimes and become filthy rich by going on 60 minutes and securing a book deal. And yet generally speaking Apple can’t even keep their next version of the iPhone from being leaked and Bill Clinton couldn’t even keep a semen stained dress out of the evening news.

It’s time to call bullshit on all of this.

If you are self-educated or were lucky enough to receive a good education which taught you how to think, then congratulations, you have my undying admiration. And, if you are not educated to the level you should be to appreciate what is going on in the world, if you often feel confused or marginalised, then Educate YOURSELF! Do NOT let bullshit full your brain.

The rest of the world is counting on you to save the planet and each other from the ignorant and selfish.

Let’s all make sure we’re on the correct side of history.
