    I don't want to simply call this a "conspiracy movie" because I know that will put some people off watching it and it doesn't do the film any justice.
    This will open your eyes to a lot of things including world governement agenda, public mis-information, religion and the true scale of world oppression, please watch it.

    To answer the question in the topic title.

    Yes.

    And no, I don't have any suggestion about how to change this, or if we would live better if we did.

    Watched it. Just another conspiracy theory.

    Much like religion, conspiracy theories are attractive because it's very comforting to believe there is some higher order in the world, and that the world we live in makes some kind of sense.

    Well it doesn't.


    It's a complete chaotic mess, a huge, hostile place, with no kind of comprehensible order whatsoever (other than the few physical laws that almost always work against you), with hideous doom lurking at every corner, and nobody at all has a chance of controlling what's going on.



    But if you're too scared to accept that, scared of the big, bad, cruel world, then feel free to believe in any fancy theory that makes you feel safer.

    this is just another crappy conspiracy movie which tries to sum up the whole world in one convenient little theory.

    I agree that a lot of conspiracy theories are full of shnit (the moon landing one for instance), but do you guys seriously harbour the point of view that any argument against mass media's version of events is to be viewed as bollocks?

    Why do you think that?

    No, quite the contrary, in fact. Most of what mass media tells you is pure crap. They're not in the business of being honest, they're in the business of selling you stuff. Not exactly trustworthy material.

    The point is this: Everything you hear should be taken with a grain of salt, including this movie. The author tells us that himself. Which is a good thing, because the movie is intentionally biased against the so-called "common knowledge" (stuff believed by the "media-controlled masses"), and therefore not entirely objective (i.e. not to be trusted).

    Yeah, I can accept that. But I really do believe that the majority of people's views are wholely influenced (if not dictated) by what the mass media tells them, and that is a dangerous fact. A fact that is being used to manipulate the masses (whether that means convincing someone to buy a certain product or to subscribe to the notion that a war is justified).
    The scary thing is that almost every single home in this country has a TV and if you don't (like me) you are percieved as being a weird.

    Q. What's the first thing you think when re-arranging your lounge? Is it "TV goes there!"?

    I believe most conspiracy theories fall flat because the actual truth is much simpler : People want to make money. On your back.

    Now, whenever you whip out the illuminati, the freemasons, the jews, the president of the USA, or the reptilians, you're getting too deep and you get absorbed into your vicious circle. This particular video is a textbook example of what not to do when you're out to tell the truth, to people who DO NOT WEAR TINFOIL HATS.

    EDIT : Oh, and your rant against TV is something I used to believe, while I trusted books and the internet as valid sources of information.

    LoL. I was so dumb, back then. Thing is, TV caters to the masses of people that don't know better and don't want to. Let the working class fuck itself, I say. Benefit from this knowledge and rise above [​IMG]

    Fact is this conspiracy has caught many people's attention maybe you're the one absorbed into a vicious circle of false security.
