The topic of conspiracies has become more prevalent in the American psyche and I've not found a free compilation or overview of classic references. I don't consider myself an expert in this field, just a hardworking and curious layman, and I would appreciate any insight that others can offer. I know that a FAQ is a very iterative process in which early versions are only marginal and incomplete, whereas later versions can become extremely comprehensive with the help of reader input. With your help, I can really improve the quality of this document. I am committing to keeping it free for unlimited distribution at all times. If you know some good references for any of these sections, in the interest of educating humanity, please send them to me. Note: I am not going to try to collect every reference that exists. In particular I prefer to collect references to other authoritative collections that contain references themselves. I intend to keep a short list of web sites in this FAQ, which I don't intend to be exhaustive either, but which points to the premier sites. If you have one of the most comprehensive sites on the net, I would like to hear about your pointer, however, if you are working with subtopics, please submit your URL to the site maintainers of the more "master" sites. I will generally not attempt to resolve the truth or falsity of various issues, but simply remark on the contents of "conspiracy theory literature" or CTL and let the reader decide. Overviews The field of CTL is rather vast, with some references mentioned here focusing on specific angles and others focusing on general overviews. References I have found useful for overviews and references are [Epperson85], [Vankin95], [Icke95]. [Mullins85a] and [Still90] cover the NWO. [Moench95] is in cartoon format but is surprisingly comprehensive. secret societies CTL frequently focuses on the theme that secret societies exist around the world and are used to manipulate world politics, the media, and economics [Still90], [Miller]. These societies may be involved in "black magic" [King76]. Other societies such as the Trilateral Commission and the Committee of 300 [Coleman] are used to manipulate world politics and the media. The most notorious is known as the Illuminati [Wilgus] that arises out of Freemasonry [VanHelsing95]. These societies are always interested in more power and use subtle and hidden means to obtain it. For example, they recruit members in key positions of power, not necessarily in open or public view. WWI, WWII, Nazism, etc. A theme of CTL is that WWI, II, and Nazism were planned by those in power. The idea is that arms manufacturers benefit enormously from sales of armaments during a conflict. See [Higham83]. Moreover, bankers that loan money to governments to finance wars can make large sums of money when the money is paid back with interest (profit). Some authors claim that bankers actually arrange for wars to be started using a secret network of agent provocateurs. See [Mullins85b]. Other authors claim that Hitler was not the mastermind of his movement but in fact a pawn in a greater drama in which he was utilized to be a suitable enemy for nations of the world to mobilize against each other. Hitler and Nazism had many occult ties which are often noted by the same authors. See [Icke95, Quigley81, King76, Brennan74, Sutton76]. Another CTL claim is that the Jewish race and Israel is used as a useful pawn by conspirators to obtain political goals. See [Chomsky94]. Cold War Some CTL suggests that global bankers planned the confrontation of the West and East during the cold war to increase profits due to government loans spent on defense and armaments, and a way of infiltrating Russia with their own pawns subservient to their agenda during the Bolshevik revolution. See e.g. [Sutton81]. United Nations/NWO CTL refers to the United Nations as an agency ultimately working for the enslavement of the human race through subtle means. It asserts that even though well-meaning people are involved in the effort, the hidden agenda is ultimately to create a global tyranny through slow, imperceptable implementation. The codeword for this arrangement is "New World Order" referred to by political leaders (e.g. president Bush), perhaps some unwittingly, for decades. Nations are encouraged to give away their sovereignty to a higher authority in the same way local citizens have given their rights away to their national governments. See [Jasper92]. government revolutions According to various CTL sources, government revolutions are planned and instigated from behind the scenes by secret societies. The upheaval allows them to seize power and manipulate the population, such as implementing martial law, seizing assets of "revolutionaries", etc. The French revolution is held up as an example of a revolution that was driven from behind the scenes by Freemasonry lodges. The Bolshevik revolution is given as another example. The American Revolution is considered variously by CTL authors to either be in defiance or in line with the world conspiracy. See [Sutton81] for the Bolshevik revolution or [Hall79] on America. terrorism, sabotage A major CTL theme is that terrorism is used by secret societies for secret agendas. For example, a secret society might handily murder many enemies all at once if they are all on the plane at the same time. Supposedly this is sometimes the case when one secret society discovers another secret society's secret airline plans of its members. Another claim of CTL is that terrorism creates a fear that allows governments to crack down on people and take away their rights, allowing greater control. See [Skolnickxxx]. Another example would be the Oklahoma Bombing conspiracy, which supposedly was used to polarize the public against militias, who were successfully educating them about their rights and the machinations of the world bankers. religion According to much CTL, religions are used to brainwash the masses and they are infected with much propaganda and disinformation. In one CTL, the Catholic Church is rumored to have a large storage of secret material stored in the Vatican. Other claims are that the Christian religion was heavily manipulated at the Council of Nicea to remove doctrines of reincarnation, masculinize it, etc. and that the record of Christ's life has been distorted for control purposes. See [Baigent83]. media manipulation A key conspiracy theory relates to the control of the media. CTL suggests the media is controlled by various interests that force a lack of objectivity even when the media appears to have it. A bias toward the rich is a common suspicion about the media. However, CTL suggests that a government itself desires to manipulate the media to keep the population in the dark about its agendas and operations. For example, much CTL suggests the CIA doesn't merely get information from reporters and editors, known as its "assets", but that it actively influences them in the information they convey to the public. Various methods can be used such as payments, appeal to "national security", etc. world bankers Federal Reserve Bank, IRS 1929 Great Depression A major CTL theme is on the illegitimacy of the currency system in the country. It insists that world bankers can impose a kind of a hidden tax on currency via inflation and interest rates. It asserts that the federal reserve system is an inherently corrupt and parasitical system, draining away wealth from the country via interest payments on the national debt. CTL states that the IRS is an illegitimate agency that was never legally approved by law. CTL suggests that world bankers snuck in the laws to support both the Federal Reserve and the IRS to implement a system of hidden taxation on the entire American public. CTL insists that the depression of 1929 was artificially caused by world bankers who wished to put the American economy under a greater yolk, and seize the country's gold and assets at reduced rates. See [Mullins85b], [Emeryxxx], [Koteen89]. Particularly of interest to CTL are developments that affect the way the population uses money or the way that it is backed. For example, the move to the Gold standard and the moves away from it by Nixon are seen as highly relevant. Also new electronic developments in the flow of money [Kurtzman93] are watched closely by CTL writers who believe that the world order wants to impose a global currency for purposes of control. death of Lincoln, Kennedy A major CTL theme is that Lincoln and Kennedy were both on the verge of introducing a currency that would be free of manipulation, control, and profit by the world bankers, and were assassinated just prior to implementing it. A speech that Kennedy gave at Columbia University just prior to his assassination supposedly stated, "The high office of the President has been used to foment a plot against the American people. Before I leave office, I must inform the citizen of his plight." [Andrews86]. See [Piper95], [Keith92] for information on the Kennedy assassination. One view is that the presidents may have been killed for multiple reasons. A higher level conspirator (like a world banker, e.g. Rothschilds [Perry94]) might have his own reasons, and convince a lower-level conspirator (like an assassin or mobster) to kill Kennedy for other reasons (such as hating his policies on crime, etc.) NSA The NSA, or National Security Agency, is the subject of much CTL. CTL sometimes states the NSA is a front for concealing secrets about aliens, or operations involving them. Other scenarios are that the NSA is a "trojan horse" to create an authoritarian government system. Officially, the National Security Agency is in charge of creating cryptographic devices for the military and government to allow secret communications. The agency was concealed from existence for decades from its inception in the 50's. The NSA has a "black budget" in the billions of dollars per year. See [Bamford82]. CIA CTL claims that CIA agents are involved in many unauthorized projects such as secret drug running to finance covert operations involving the overthrow of governments, etc. See [EIR], [Levine93]. mind control: CIA's MKUltra CTL states that the CIA was involved in a research program to investigate mind control. This much is part of the public record, in fact Congressional hearings were called to investigate the program in the 70's. However CTL states that the program simply went underground and that it is still active. Supposedly one useful aspect of mind control is to train assassins to kill subjects in a sort of hypnotic trance, so that they can't remember the event or recall the command to kill. See [O'Brien95]. Mena drug trafficking Recent CTL focuses on Clinton's record in Arkansas and suggests he conspired with the CIA to allow drugs to be trafficked through Mena, Arkansas. CTL states he took bribes and moved up in the power structure as a result of it. The funds are supposedly used for extremely covert CIA operations that are so subversive they can't be sponsored with taxpayer money. See [Reed94]. Vince Foster and Whitewater CTL claims Vince Foster did not commit suicide but was murdered to cover up some kind of crime. One theory is that he was trading nuclear secrets to Israel via a secret connection to the NSA. Another view is that he may have known too much about Mena, Arkansas and was considering making some decision that would threaten the secrecy of the whole affair. NASA coverups A major CTL theme advanced by Richard Hoagland is that NASA knows about the existence of aliens and/or alien artifacts on different planets, but suppresses the information. Supposedly there are teams that airbrush photos or review them for unauthorized detail prior to releasing them, and secretly stockpiling photographs that reveal anomalies. Some CTL claims NASA was involved in faking the entire Apollo moon landings. See [Brian]. Oklahoma bombing/TWA800 CTL states that the FBI/BATF have refused to reveal evidence about the Oklahoma city bombing to jurors so they don't reveal that they had an infiltrator into the group and that they could have averted the disaster. In the TWA800 crash, CTL insists the government shot down the plane accidentally during a military training exercise. See [San97]. presidential directives Thousands of "presidential directives" have been passed by various presidents, and particular ones are highlighted by CTL as intending to take away rights from the population in the event of emergencies. The view is that a national emergency or economic collapse would be staged and that the directives would then go into effect, allowing a totalitarian government, or at least martial law, to take over. Nazi relocation: project Paperclip CTL states that many Nazi scientists were secretly relocated to the US and given new identities after WWII by the CIA or secret military agencies as intellectual assets, and went on to experiment in secret weaponry and/or mind control research projects. secret weaponry HAARP Montauk/Philadelphia Experiment A theme of CTL is that governments are developing horrible secret weaponry without knowledge of their citizens, such as biological warfare, earthquake weaponry, electromagnetic pulse weaponry, HAARP (High Altitude Auroral Research Project), mind altering and control techniques [O'Brien95], etc. A particularly famous experiment is known as the Philadelphia Experiment that was supposedly developing time travel as a means of radar evasion during WWII in the "Philadelphia Experiment" related to research at Montauk point in New York. See [Nichols92]. FEMA, Mount Weather FEMA stands for the Federal Emergency Management Agency. CTL suggests that it is a "trojan horse" for the New World Order, which will use it as an instrument to take over the government after a staged disaster. CTL claims FEMA has obtained billions of dollars and channelled them into underground cities which the Elite will migrate to in the event of ecological disaster, abandoning the rest of humanity to a dying surface. Other theories suggest FEMA would become a new government of the country and rule with martial law over the population. FEMA is in charge of a large but secret and concealed facility called Mount Weather that is an underground duplicate of the above-ground government structures for use in extreme emergencies. Area 51/antigravity research Various authors insist that the government has captured alien technology and have reverse engineered it for military purposes (i.e. weaponry or flight technology, so-called antigravity devices). According to these theories, a point in the Nevada desert called Area 51 holds this secret technology and alien spaceship fragments deep underground. See [Cooper]. AIDS CTL suggests that AIDS was a planned disease used for population control or to wipe out undesireable elements (drug users, homosexuals, blacks). It was supposedly released in tuberculosis drug trials in New York. CTL also insists that books revealing the truth about AIDS have been suppressed from the mainstream. Cancer CTL states that various cures for cancer have been discovered and invented but suppressed by the mainstream medical establishment which makes large sums of money for the treatment of the disease. One significant story involves a scientist Rife who invented a powerful, unconventional microscope. See [Lynes87]. free energy CTL states that sophisticated energy devices have been invented to provide cheap and plentiful energy, but that they have been suppressed by agencies with agendas of maintaining the status quo, such as oil companies or the military. See [Engdahl93] for information on oil politics. aliens/UFOs Another claim of CTL is that aliens have seeded the human race in ancient times and that the gods referred to in ancient legends and the Bible are actually referring to these aliens and their technology. According to [Sitchin76] the aliens were involved in genetic experimentation to create a slave race, i.e. humanity. CTL also claims that religions and historical world events have been manipulated by aliens to suit their own agenda. See [Bramley90]. real/confirmed conspiracies A number of writings in CTL have started out branded as "conspiracy" without any mainstream credibility given them but eventually admitted by the U.S. government. Three notable examples: * radiation poisoning by the government of subjects in medical studies. * psychic research into "remote viewing" by the CIA. * the chemical poisoning of Gulf war veterans. how conspiracies work An interesting overview of how conspiracies tend to work is given by [Icke95]. He proposes a typical pyramid structure in which a secret organization is hierarchical, and knowledge among the members is greatest at the top and least at the bottom. Members on the bottom are pawns and dupes, who can be manipulated through their beliefs and vices. The tendency of members to fight among each other is useful to their controllers as it keeps them focused on a narrow view of reality, precluding the discovery that they are pawns. "Dupes" outside of the group are people who can be tricked into following the group's agenda because of their ignorance or belief system. Another major mechanism is that of double agents and agent provocateurs. The former might infiltrate the government but work under the agenda of some other secret group. They tend to focus on key positions in government involving the most power and the least public view. Provocateurs are useful in creating diversions and distractions or the illusion of problems where there are none, so that "solutions" favorable to the conspirators can be introduced. In the middle of the pyramid are the middlemen, who function like managers in handing down commands from the upper echelons into the lower hierarchy. They are better informed and aspire to climb the pyramid. The Elite at the top of the pyramid have the full agenda and care only about their own power. Perhaps most critical of all to the whole framework is a vast, unsuspecting, uncritical general public composed of people who would rather watch a sitcom or sporting event than participate in holding the government accountable for its actions, yet continue to send it tax money to finance its plans. Authors sometimes refer to this class as the "sheeple" for their timidity. Convincing this class of its inability to effect any change is another key ploy required. Toward the ends of herding the "sheeple", the media must be controlled using various means. Stories that are critical or expose anything the Elite is interested in need to be snuffed out or muffled with smokescreens. The earlier players such as "pawns, dupes, double agents, agent provocateurs" etc. are ideally involved in part in the media. aspects of human nature that lead to conspiracies A pattern arises in CTL in which conspiracies arise because of particular weaknesses in human nature. Conspirators are motivated to control those below them by their ego, greed, fear, vice, and megalomania. They have the feeling that the whole world is corrupt and that they might as well live with it, and deal with it in that fashion. They can be readily manipulated by their higher controllers through their mistaken but rigid belief systems. Pawns and Dupes are subject to conspiracies because of their psychological weaknesses as well. Some are witting accomplices, others are unaware but nevertheless useful. They are naive and gullible and do not seek to question the world as they perceive it. They are closeminded to alternative explanations to events other than that which they are fed. Their thinking is black-and-white and is incapable of seeing a more sophisticated reality beyond "friend" and "enemy". This "knee-jerk" reaction can be cultivated by their controllers. Their cynicism and apathy mean that they are unlikely to try alternative approaches. The "moving target" mentality insists that whatever is labelled an "official" conspiracy, i.e. one that is reported in the press, is not really a conspiracy. That is, conspiracy theories are considered inherently ridiculous by the word "conspiracy" alone. The inability to say no means that their freedoms are taken away without complaint, but merely docile submission. A herdlike mentality is useful to the controllers, who can then manipulate the masses more readily. A short attention span and lack of curiosity mean that the victims are not able to extricate themselves from their psychological prison. Finally, fear prevents a pawn or a dupe from "blowing the whistle" when they discover a conspiracy. key methods of advancing conspiracies A pattern of CTL is that conspiracies are furthered through specific techniques. These range from the somewhat minor to extremely sinister. secrecy All conspiracies are furthered through secrecy. The people aware of aspects of the conspiracy might be silent for different reasons, however. People high on the ladder may wish to maintain their control. People lower on the ladter may wish to preserve their own particular "piece of the action". guilt, anxiety People who are deep in guilt or anxiety can be manipulated to be silent about particular information that would reveal the conspiracy. victimhood People who see themselves as victims, "losers", or worthless and expendable by nature will not try to challenge a status quo that affirms their position of oppression. greed People involved in or peripheral to the conspiracy are paid off not to say anything, or to say things that minimize or conceal the conspiracy, etc. The conspiracy will "contract" with people to secretly provide services useful to the conspiracy, etc. manipulation The conspiracy is always furthered through manipulation. People are manipulated to do things they might not otherwise through all the psychological techniques available. Some of the participants are aware that they are being manipulated but feel powerless to shake it off. Others are manipulated in a way that they do not perceive or are not aware of. decoys, smokescreens A ploy used by conspirators would be to create spectacles that throw people off their track or keep them occupied with minutia that is not relevant to the key problems of the country. One example of this may have been when Gary Hart was about to run for president, with polls suggesting he had a lot of popularity. Conspirators would arrange to discredit him with something that seemed scandalous but actually had no relevance to his potentially sophisticated ability to govern/lead the country. suppression, censorship The tools of suppression, censorship of information are critical to the maintenance of a conspiracy. Sometimes this goes under the guise of protecting "national security" within the government. However it might involve using other techniques of intimidation on reporters who are coming near to the truth, or other variations. disinformation, lies, revisionism, coverup "History is written by the victors". A very key aspect of perpetuating a conspiracy is the use of disinformation or lying to distract or mislead the public, those at the edges, and those within the plot. One aspect of this would be manipulating the media of the country, it's "eyes and ears". The public's perceptions of a reality free of the conspiracy is crucial to maintain. The insider's perception that their own agendas are being served at all times, without further knowledge of the deeper plots, is also key. When there are "leaks", they must be covered up by agents of the conspiracy or unwitting dupes who believe they are ultimately serving their own best interests through the suppression. intimidation, terror, paranoia, blackmail People may be aware of the conspiracy but terrified of revealing it due to the perceived tactics of the coconspirators. Or, they may be blackmailed into participating or staying silent. bribery Bribery is always one obvious means of manipulating coconspirators, pawns, or dupes. The bribery might be in the form of money, or some other vice-payment like sex or drugs. Whatever the human psychology is susceptible to, could be used. infiltration Conspiracies are furthered through the infiltration of agencies by agents of the conspiracy. For example, those that would seek to undermine the government would insert themselves into key positions of power. Their loyalty would not be to the government but to the secret society of which they are a part. assassinations Assassinations are particularly useful to furthering the goals of a conspiracy when they come in conflict with outsiders. Outsiders who oppose key elements of the agenda are simply eliminated. The public, being unaware of the conspiracy as a whole, attribute the assassination to spurious causes such as "lone nuts". Assassinations of those about to directly reveal the conspiracy are the most crucial. Assassinations disguised as suicides are also useful in misleading the public and perpetuating the conspiracy. "trojan horse", "bait and switch", "shell game" A common theme of the CTL genre is that conspirators use familar techniques to achieve their ends. A favorite is the "trojan horse" scheme in which the public is tricked into thinking something is a gift when it is in fact a devious plot. A "bait and switch" would involve similar aspects. A "shell game" is a game of deception and distraction in which the subjects are mixed up about the true outcome, but play perhaps because of their own greed. These ideas are frequently played out in the legislature of the country, a power nexis, in the form of laws that do not have the consequences the public intended. "frog boiling" Another common theme of CTL is that of the delayed plan. Conspirators who wish to take over the world, for example, would be very patient and implement their plan in gradual, minute, indetectable steps. The term comes from the observation that frogs, when exposed to boiling water, jump away from it immediately, but when they are put in a pan and the water is slowly increased in temperature, they may sit and boil to death. "pump and dump" Another common theme of CTL is that pawns and dupes are subject to a "pump and dump" situation in which they are favored by the conspirators as long as they are useful, and then they are hung out to dry (or in the worse case, murdered) when they no longer serve the needs of the conspiracy. Hitler would be one example cited by CTL-- he was at first assuaged and supported by a hidden conspiracy, and then abandoned to die when he was no longer useful. plots within plots CTL emphasizes the concept that not everyone in the conspiracy is working toward the same ends, and that frequently subgroups are utilized to work against each other. An example of this would be the Kennedy assassination, in which one CTL book suggests that a rogue element of the CIA was on the scene and believed that an assassination was only going to be staged, but that it would be unsuccessful. Their unknowing contribution to the final assassination would have supported the overall agenda, and their guilty complicity would only endanger themselves in any attempt to reveal the betrayal. Another example would be the following: the FBI might have an informant working in a terrorist group. The informant is in fact a double agent for the conspirators. The FBI thinks that the informant is going to allow them to seize terrorists in the nick of time, planting a bomb, thereby being the heroes of the day. The informant misleads the agency and plants the bomb anyway. The FBI, through its support of the infiltrator, or at least lack of opposition, would inadvertently allow a situation they would not have initially accepted (i.e. existence of a terrorist group). Another example would be with the BATF during the Oklahoma Bombing. CTL suggests that they were aware of an informant within the bombing group. The informant may have tricked them into believing they could defuse the bomb at an opportune moment, thereby gaining favorable media publicity. The BATF would then be motivated to cover up the details of the bombing to hide their own negligence, a situation that would be useful to preventing the real story of the conspirators from coming to light. The conspirators, supposing they were really world bankers, might have been motivated to discredit militias spreading knowledge about them via the bombing. problem, reaction, solution (thesis, antithesis, synthesis) A key component of CTL documenting the gradual introduction of the NWO asserts that the conspirators focus on a single technique again and again: that of "problem, reaction, solution". The conspirators create a fake problem, such as terrorism. The public reacts and calls out for a solution, and the conspirators present a pseudo-solution into a form that increases their own power, such as a government crackdown. The solution is bogus because the problem is bogus, but this point eludes the public's perception.
