A response and questions to Covid19 special fireside chat:
Hi Tom, I hope you are well.
I found it interesting that you put conspiracy theories down to fear in your recent fireside chat. Some people are not content to live in ignorance, and cannot just bury their heads in the sand.
Remember the weapons of mass destruction to justify war in Iraq? Just one of many examples of where people have lost trust in the people at the top that make these decisions.
A loss of trust, and an aversion to injustice is what drives many conspiracy theories. It's not about trying to scare people, it's about letting the bad folks know that people are watching, and their eyes are open.
Nothing can be proven, as Dean Radin says,the only proof it is mathematics and alcohol. However, we can collect and cross reference evidence, just as historians do. Many conspiracy theories are evidence based, and open to the fact that they could be incorrect, but it is important that we are vigilant, to help avoid future injustices. Surely this is a good thing in keeping with lowering the entropy of the system?
It's all very well saying that a system of global co-operation is a step forward, but does this not lead to the centralization of power, and who polices this centralized power and stops it becoming corrupt? Are we really grown up enough for that yet? I do not think so. The human race has so much further to go.
Did the world consent to 5G and starlink? Or was it the decision of the billionaire elites? What effect might all these extra radio frequencies have on our precious collective consciousness? Ok, that's enough thinking from me for one night, until your next fireside chat, which I am very much looking forward to.
All the best, take care.
