I now consider researching conspiracy theories to be a hobby of mine. Of course, as a hikki, this information is of literally no use to me whatsoever, and I do not have the charisma to "educate" others. It is simply a pastime.
Many people act like simply researching these very alternative ideas is damaging in and of itself. Popular on wizchan youtuber named "K9 Aversion" recently announced she will no longer be creating content simply because people among her fanbase were discussing 5G towers and anti-vaxx ideas within her communities. Discussion alone is so offensive? Why? I do not even believe many of the ideas proposed myself and just enjoy thinking about them.
Because of these extreme reactions, I feel it necessary to give this disclaimer. Again, I do not necessarily believe the things proposed in this thread but rather enjoy thinking about it.

Please do not discuss theories that are political in nature in this thread. I don't want it to be deleted, although I find them interesting as well.

Some examples I've been thinking about lately:
- Alien abductions are real, however they differ from the normalfag idea of an alien abduction in that real abductions occur spiritually and not physically. And these abductions are NEVER to your benefit and you leave very unhealthy and emotionally damaged. They happen during the sleep normally, however sometimes they can happen while awake and when this happens it's similar to a date rape drug– you have a 2-5 hour blank spot in your memory when you "wake up" and have a feeling of general unease.

- The extension of the flat earth theory which claims the entire sky is a hologram, and sometimes that no planets except Earth exist. There are many youtube videos that document sky hologram "glitches".
- Alternatively (not flat earth related), that the sky is itself a giant living organism and that it sometimes sends shards of itself down to attack or observe people (they look like blue blankets and fly at great speeds.)

- You can fall through the ground like a video game glitch and get stuck in an infinite void on certain parts of the planet.

- Dinosaurs existed up until the early 1900's as evidenced by dinosaur tracks on the top layer of the earth that are way too well preserved to be from 60,000,000 years ago.

- Some gnostic wizards think that if they become spiritually elevated enough that they can cease ingesting food of any kind and live healthily off of sunlight, positive thoughts and positive vibrations sent from other people alone, and never have to eat a physical meal ever again.

Just some examples of non-political theories, you do not have to discuss these in particular.

Leaked Documents Outline DHS’s Plans to Police Disinformation
October 31 2022, 9:00 a.m.

Behind closed doors, and through pressure on private platforms, the U.S. government has used its power to try to shape online discourse. According to meeting minutes and other records appended to a lawsuit filed by Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt, a Republican who is also running for Senate, discussions have ranged from the scale and scope of government intervention in online discourse to the mechanics of streamlining takedown requests for false or intentionally misleading information.
[…]
There is also a formalized process for government officials to directly flag content on Facebook or Instagram and request that it be throttled or suppressed through a special Facebook portal that requires a government or law enforcement email to use. At the time of writing, the “content request system” at facebook.com/xtakedowns/login is still live. DHS and Meta, the parent company of Facebook, did not respond to a request for comment. The FBI declined to comment.
[…]
To accomplish these broad goals, the report said, CISA should invest in external research to evaluate the “efficacy of interventions,” specifically with research looking at how alleged disinformation can be countered and how quickly messages spread. Geoff Hale, the director of the Election Security Initiative at CISA, recommended the use of third-party information-sharing nonprofits as a “clearing house for information to avoid the appearance of government propaganda.”

5G towers can be used to image everything around them in fairly high resolution and the government is almost certainly using them for this purpose, but then again wifi routers can also do this so not much has changed except for them being able to image any space in the entire country now instead of just where there are wifi routers. I assume this has something to do with why the government didn't want Chinese companies to supply the chips for the 5g towers. Obviously they can also collect signals intelligence but that goes without saying. The reasons most conspiracy tards seem to be concerned with them though are all goofy nonsense.

Alien abductions are real, but in reality what is actually happening is people are getting roofied and then raped, usually by their fathers. Their brain processes the incident into aliens to process the trauma and because of the way the drugs fuck with your perception.

The Earth is not flat. The sky does have living organisms in it like bacteria but is itself not a living thing. Dinosaurs went extinct when we think they did. Breathitarians don't exist.

That's my thoughts on the stuff you posted about.

9/11 truthers I think have a lot of stuff that makes me think it could be legit as long as you ignore the nonsense about the towers being rigged with bombs or something. The actual towers collapsed exactly as you would expect them to if they were hit by planes. The incestuous relationship between the Bushes and the Osama's is real. The fact that it benefitted Bush incredibly is real. The fact that the Saudi Government was involved at the highest level and the Bush administration covered that up is real. Then there are proven conspiracies like MKULTRA or Iran-contra. I don't like very silly conspiracy theories that are easily proven false or which have no evidence to support them.

As for the conspiracies I am interested in, I think the guys behind the national prayer breakfast are basically the shadow cabal of global capitalist elites. They are christian fascists who believe in bringing about eschatological end-game through political control. They are broadly allied with the zionists in Israel who have the same goals. The federalist society is part of this conspiracy as are every one of the judges they pick (including merrick garland). The Russian mob under Mogilovich became powerful enough that this cabal decided to bring them into the fold. This happened basically since the fall of the soviet union with Greenspan creating the oligarchs who were then slowly allowed into the fold of global elites. The proper way to think about the fall of the soviets is that the weak and old soviet regime was usurped by a conspiracy involving an alliance between criminal elements in Russia and the security service (KGB, then FSB) who overthrew the soviets by conspiring with Greenspan. Pro capitalist businessmen could also be lumped into the mix as they became the oligarchs, but ultimately the oligarchs are lower on the pecking order than the spooks or mob bosses.

The Russian interference in the election was actually an operation coming from the American side with the Russians acting as cover to give plausible deniability to the republicans. Trump was born into a mob family. His father was a front for the mob. First Italian, then Russian after the Italians got taken over by the Russians in the 80s. Trump has also worked as a front for the Russian mob most of his life and as a result was turned into an asset by the Russians. He was agreed to as a neutral party that both sides could work with as both (the American and Russian) sides had some leverage over him. The American Christian fascists got Trump moving the capital of Israel to Jerusalem and their christian fascist supreme court justices installed and the Russians got US withdrawal from Syria and Trump was supposed to stop the funding to Ukraine, but ultimately he fucked that up and fucked up winning the election. The wall was a payoff to organized crime which controls big stakes in the steel and concrete industries. They made it slotted so that people could easily pass drugs through it and the expense of the wall can be used to deter any more effective measures being put in place like cameras on towers or vibration sensors in the ground.

I honestly think he was trying to lose both elections because he didn't want to do it. The part of him that is narcissistic and mentally ill wanted to win to supply him with narcissistic supply, but deep down he knew he would be better off losing. Melania is also an intelligence asset and part of her job is to handle Trump and she was in tears when she found out he won the first one. Now Merrick Garland is threatening Trump to actually try to win this time or else he will arrest him. He hasn't done it yet even though Trump was caught red handed stealing all sorts of classified documents because his goal is to apply leverage to get Trump to go back to being the cabal's pawn. There's a lot more I could say about this particular conspiracy but I've already written a novel so I'll stop here.

Non-political conspiracy theories don't really interest me as they don't affect real power for the most part and are often very silly with little real evidence to back them up. If this post is against the rules please delete it.

The fence is mostly non-existent, it's goal is to push migrants deep into the desert where it's easier to surveil and control from a distance. Think cops on ATVs visiting the migrant drop-cache spots and slashing all the water, and removing / destroying the food. I am ignorant to a lot of your post, but broadly agree with the 9/11 stuff.

Cloud storage hosts can access your files and use it to spy on you and steal information, if you store any sensitive information it will get analyzed and saved by someone. They backup your data without you knowing it and keep files that are interesting. They also use an AI to scan for anything that could be in their economical interest.

Theres a chance that actual human beings are watching people through their phone cameras which basically record from both angles at all times, they also use AI to process real time images and sound of your phone camera for analytical data. At some point we might see a huge leak of such data which could include a lot of weird recording of you as well.

Big mental institutions keep their patients on a leash for as long as possible so they can make a profit, they do anything form wrong diagnoses to gaslighting and prescribing meds they don't need while never actually giving anyone the help they need. It's all just a big machine and patients are their working material.

If you ever talked to a psychiatrist about violent thoughts or suicide you made yourself vulnerable to being used for psyop operations, no one will do any more research if they just think that you were mentally ill. The media is also additionally memeing certain people into becoming shooters and murderers through things such as movies and music.

State Department concocting “fake” intellectual property “Twitter feud”
“Our public diplomacy office is still settling on a hashtag,” State Department says.
Jul 6, 2017 7:41 pm UTC

The US State Department wants to team up with other government agencies and Hollywood in a bid to create a "fake Twitter feud" about the importance of intellectual property rights. As part of this charade, the State Department's Bureau of Economic Affairs says it has been seeking the participation of the US Office of Intellectual Property Enforcement, the Motion Picture Association of America, the Recording Industry Association of America, the US Patent and Trademark Office, and "others."

To make the propaganda plot seem more legitimate, the State Department is trying to enlist Stanford Law School and "similar academic institutions" to play along on the @StateDept feed on Twitter.

https://www.wired.com/2013/05/the-fbis-plan-for-a-wiretap-ready-internet-is-misdirected-shortsighted-and-ridiculous/
May 10, 2013 8:30 AM
FBI's Latest Proposal for a Wiretap-Ready Internet Should Be Trashed
The FBI has some strange ideas about how to “update” federal surveillance laws: They’re calling for legislation to penalize online services that provide users with too much security. While it’s not yet clear how dire the going-dark scenario really is, the statutory “cure” proposed by the FBI – with fines starting at $25,000 a day for companies that aren’t wiretap capable – would surely be worse than the disease.

Why? Federal law enforcement agencies like the FBI have long feared their wiretap capabilities would begin “going dark” as criminals and terrorists – along with ordinary citizens – shift from telephone networks, which are required to be wiretap-ready under the 1994 Communications Assistance for Law Enforcement Act (CALEA), to the dizzying array of online communications platforms available today.
[…]
But if the FBI gets its way, companies won’t be able to adopt that “end to end” encryption model, or offer their users the security it provides. A wiretap interface is essentially an *intentional *security vulnerability, as network engineer Susan Landau points out – which means requiring companies to be wiretap-capable is also mandating them to design less secure services.

This, autistic men always get used for the things they invent such as the internet and games or to do complex tasks like coding and once normies find a way for everyone to use or do these things they essentially replace and bully autists out of their own turf with things like feminism etc. this happened with the internet, gaming and currently they are trying to do the same with coding but they keep failing on that one because they are hardly able to replace the skills but still they write articles about how "succubi are left out of coding" and how "misogynistic" it is when its actually something that anyone could learn at home. Autists always get the smoke despite not hurting anyone while normies get praised even if they are shitty people.

No one cares about autists because they are low social status even if they have money but everyone depends on the things they come up with.

This is my problem right now. All these structures and elaborations are not needed. I got kinda of lost after everything actually happened, and it was all much less spectacular than all hypothesis and speculations. People were expecting stuff like "government projecting images of Jesus with aliens in the sky to install a big world tyranny", and how did it turn out? "Guys, give up your rights or you get the flu". Also, don't mind all the medium and small business that went bankrupt, international corporations will take over the space that was left. And take these suspicious substances into your blood, it's mandatory. Now get ready for the reset. Back in Will and Grace times they could change people's opinions with a series, now they can do it with a social media post. All that is left in the conspiracy community is masturbation.

You're being silly! What we propose to do is not to control content, but to create context.

But you're absolutely right. When people read about MK Ultra, the drug trials get and got everyone's attention. The more interesting experiments of MK Ultra were more mundane: social and psychological manipulation. MK Ultra was never about acid and truth serums with chemicals, it was about gaslighting and brainwashing with words. They realized that content moderation was far more potent than any drug or censorship. Whose messages that resonated with the regime were encouraged. Case in point: nobody ever hears or cares about the mundane psychological experiments of MK Ultra, they're all """distracted""" by the acid experiments.

Once these finer details of control were tweaked, this was expanded upon and extended generously with other Deep State projects, like when DARPA funded Lifelog, which become Facebook. Now through the major tech companies they use these methods on a subtle, continuous basis on the entire populace. A fact which has been corroborated by the Intercept now. Only now, their control is so deep, so vast, that the Intercept needs not even be censored explicitly. They simply get slid so that nobody even sees them. The future is not a boot, stomping on humanity, for all eternity. The future is funny cat pictures that make everyone question what a boot even is.

To add to what this Anonymage said, the Intercept itself is far from free of suppression of information that is a little too inconvenient, on both sides. For example, they censored their own founder on the Hunter Biden story to the point where he resigned. Like the Guardian, the Intercept is allowed a considerable measure of the illusion of freedom, but they are nonetheless controlled opposition rather than real opposition, because at the end of the day they still need a license from the government to operate.

To see how much unnamed actors are bothered by the Intercept's DHS streamlined social media takedown exposure >>63136 https://theintercept.com/2022/10/31/social-media-disinformation-dhs/ take the case of 28chan.org. The story is a technology news story so it was posted on the technology board. The board's standard for relevance, from its catalog: (a) "this is a cute succubus" 29/05/22 (b) "Fuck fuck" 28/05/22. The DHS story was put up on 11/09/22 (Wed) >>63136 and deleted and permabanned with reason "bot" on the 16th. To judge for yourself whether they believe their own reason, the librivox JSless browsing script https://28chan.org/board/g/res/111.html#593 is posted from the same IP, and this is available in the IP history to the mod. Naturally, the standard smears against that IP will follow like clockwork – you can't expect anything else.

So the sliding behavior mentioned by this Anon >>63202 is sometimes ramped up to overt suppression, even if it outs the site. Basically if you want to check how fed or how free a site is, you can post the DHS exposure in a relevant section in a disciplined tone and check the reaction: no suppression / slide and distract / overt suppression.

The conspiracy theory that this post is relevant to, just to be extra clear, is that fringe, slower-than-wizchan sites are no longer allowed to pass under the fed radar. Inconvenient information is removed even from fringe sites when they happen to be fed sites, even when this outs the site in the process.

Of course since the Guardian is a Good Boy™ they cannot be allowed to say a single word about less than $10 million per state being peanuts.

Has there been literally anything done at all to make google stop tracking without consent or is this "historic win" literally just states getting paid free bux to stop talking about this?

Why would any state force them to stop rather than just force them to share what they’re spying? There’s too much power here for anyone to just throw it away.

I'm confident most of the Antifa doxes that happened in the past half decade were actually just leaks from the FBI/NSA.

Not in the US. And it's not even "states getting paid free bux", less than $10 million per state is peanuts for Google. But there is some movement from the EU via GDPR trying an alternate approach:

> Apple Is Tracking You Even When Its Own Privacy Settings Say It’s Not, New Research Says
> An independent test suggests Apple collects data about you and your phone when its own settings promise to “disable the sharing of Device Analytics altogether.”
> November 8, 2022

> For all of Apple’s talk about how private your iPhone is, the company vacuums up a lot of data about you. iPhones do have a privacy setting that is supposed to turn off that tracking. According to a new report by independent researchers, though, Apple collects extremely detailed information on you with its own apps even when you turn off tracking, an apparent direct contradiction of Apple’s own description of how the privacy protection works.


> The iPhone Analytics setting makes an explicit promise. Turn it off, and Apple says that it will “disable the sharing of Device Analytics altogether.” However, Tommy Mysk and Talal Haj Bakry, two app developers and security researchers at the software company Mysk, took a look at the data collected by a number of Apple iPhone apps—the App Store, Apple Music, Apple TV, Books, and Stocks. They found the analytics control and other privacy settings had no obvious effect on Apple’s data collection—the tracking remained the same whether iPhone Analytics was switched on or off.

yeah sad. you could make a dial phone easy enough. the issue even with that however is all signals are tapped and recorded

that is as simple as possible for a phone and even that is impossible in the end
