Critical thinking question of the day: according to many conspiracy theorists, America has been turning into a worsening police state. They also might argue that it happens so gradually that the average person might not notice. Now if that logic holds true and they are correct, and most roads (potential futures) are leaning toward a police state; at what point would the average person actually recognize it for what it is?
How about a twist? How would the “police state” issue be viewed by a conspirator? (unwitting or not):
Ever wonder what it would be like to be the White House Press Secretary? In an age where it seems half of us have easy access to video cameras, capturing a news story can be as simple as reaching for the phone in your pocket. However, these unexpected videos don’t always portray the establishment in a positive light. Unwelcome stories can be an issue for those that want to control reality , but if a story still continues to receive enough attention, the media will eventually be forced to cover it. The following video is a good example of one of these “unwelcome” and unexpected news bits:
Now imagine that this particular story keeps getting bigger, and the video continues to go viral. Despite the establishment’s best efforts to ignore, censor, and downplay it; the public still demands an explanation, necessitating an immediate formal statement. Assume you are the official press secretary, and it is your responsibility to address the media about the following video:
What would you say to the press? Does everything in that video look completely normal to you? Did that look like a rational and justifiable response to the “problem?” Is that how we handle issues in America now? Or is the footage more indicative of a rising American police state? Is this something we should be worried or concerned about? Or is this something we should just get used to?
Back to the challenge: You are the secretary, and the press wants an answer now. The only rule is that your explanation has to be rational, sincere, and believable…
By the way, the sweet, liberty-loving authority figure in the video is none other than Lieutenant Jennifer Griffin of the Delaware Police Department. If only our forefathers were alive to see this video of her, they would be so proud! Way to threaten those dissidents and teach them a lesson Jen! Who cares about the Constitution and Bill of Rights these days anymore anyway? Obey and respect Jen’s authority!
I intended to publish this a while back, but I’ve heard news that this show is supposedly being deleted from people’s DVR’s? I’m not 100% sure that this story is true, and it hasn’t happened to anyone I know personally so far; but if this story is true, and there is a “deletion” in progress, then I guess that means we could all be on a time-line to watch this video, so I’d better share it while I still can right?
Watching these conspiracy shows, the one thing I can’t help notice is how absurd these people getting interviewed are. And how unbelievably absurd our government and these corporations are acting. This in itself shows me that “Conspiracy Theories” is not fake. A bit cliché in spots, but this show is definitely not staged. However, even though I have a background in reading about this stuff; to actually see these conspiracies and conspirators become exposed on video is a whole different ballgame. But even though it looks surreal to me at times, what should I or anyone think conspiracies are supposed to look like?
So what if I’m wrong? That’s the interesting part of the problem; The state of the world is so bad, and the government and media have become so biased, corrupt, and secretive, that it’s hard to believe anything they say either!
I’d like to go on, but since I’m on a possible time line, here’s my hurried current analysis of the show “Conspiracy Theory” and its tie into our reality in a nutshell:
It’s almost like watching a new action/drama movie with the biggest government conspiracy plot EVER. Only you’re not just watching it, you’re living in it!
The bad news: Our (real life) plot is eerily reminiscent of the Orwell classic “1984” (probably not a coincidence either), except in our “real life,” the full control grid isn’t in place yet. However the “police state” episode should be a big wake up call and absolutely mandatory viewing by everyone, especially if the establishment tries to censor it without disproving it first.
The good news: The control grid isn’t in place yet! We have time to prevent it, AND the power to stop it!
The weird news: Jesse Ventura is officially the most feared investigative reporter on the planet! Seriously!
For the skeptics and/or the people too busy to watch the full episode right now, I’ve outlined three clips:
13:50-14:55 only 5 frames? 23:00-23:35 accidentally told the truth? 35:00-36:15 –the 2.3 trillion dollar question?
Okay, all for now. Bravo to Jesse, producer Alex Jones, and all the crew involved on an incredible 2nd season! Looking forward to season #3?
