This is FAQ that I am interested in further editing and improving. 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
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.
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
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,
Another CTL claim is that the Jewish race and Israel is used as a
useful pawn by conspirators to obtain political goals. See
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].
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].
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.
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.
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
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",
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
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
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.)
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].
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.
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].
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
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.
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
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].
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.
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].
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
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].
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
* 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
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
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.
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".
People who are deep in guilt or anxiety can be manipulated to
be silent about particular information that would reveal the
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.
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.
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.
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
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
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 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.
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 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
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
"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
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
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. See e.g. [Icke95].
