I wont be responding to this thread because the Illuminati, The Authority, The Lizard people and the Free Masons will all be watching and reading and they cannot find me. 

 

 

As the king of those groups, I hate to break it to you, but I already know where you live.

This guy:

 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bruce_Cathie wrote books which had photos of ham radio "cubical quad" antennas, which he claimed were arranged all over NZ in some grid pattern and used to communicate with aliens.  

 

My father was a ham radio nut, and we had a cubical quad antenna on the garage roof ( a bit like the one below).

 

Someone in the neighbourhood - a "concerned citizen" contacted the police, and a local constable felt obliged to knock on the door to check it out. 

 

 

 

 

 

All I saw was a tie-fighter, maybe I grew up on too much star wars..

My conspiracy theory is that world governments tacitly approve of the big pop conspiracy theories because they're awfully convenient distractions.

 

 

 

People yelling at clouds aren't going to get around to much else as far as activism goes.

had absolute mad discussion on facebook; person, seems to be mature enough, but yet insist public transport is government way to brainwash people, collect extra revenue and just huge liability to society.

 

He insist to fight traffic jams with more and wider roads in AKL at what ever cost, without extra tax.

Some twelve years ago, we visited Denver and during my web searches of "things to do", I stumbled across a number of links to the conspiracy theories surrounding the construction of the "new" Denver airport in the mid 1990s. Unbelievable! If you wish to be entertained, Wikipedia has a good overview, including the statement that "conspiracies about the airport range from the absurd to the even more absurd".

Don't forgot about Cell towers that are actually mind control towers. 

 

 

 

 

Now, we laugh about this (cos WE know how stupid it is), but the cell towers are there for the cell phones. Look at all the people staring at their phones all the time, seemingly oblivious to the real world. Perhaps it is mind control (just not through the government :) ).

I forget where it was but somewhere in suburban 'Murica a few years ago a neighbourhood took a mobile network to court over illnesses that were being caused by a new cell tower that was erected in their block.

 

The usual vague "symptoms", nausea, headaches, rashes - the usual stuff you can THINK yourself into quite easily.

 

 

 

They hadn't actually powered-up the tower. It was never transmitting.

 

 

 

Kind-of like the nocebo effect.

"Facebook <does something evil>" doesn't seem to fit with CT.
It's more a verifiable mission statement / founding principle.

I see this happen occasionally with bee hives in urban locations.

Neighbour sees bee hive, rings and complains to council that they've been stung, always bees in the house, bee droppings on washing and cars, can't use their back yard anymore etc etc. Council pays bee keeper a visit, bee keeper shows council an empty beehive that they were storing...

Havana Syndrome is a good one.

 

Throw in some global geopolitical and US partisan concerns, and you end up with experts disagreeing with "believers", and we're no closer to finding out if there was actually something behind it - not mass psychogenic illness. Cuba has been tainted for being responsible for a deliberate act anyway.  Plenty of folks seem happy with that.
