I don't believe in conspiracy theories

Personally I don't believe in most conspiracy theories. However I dó believe there are conspiracies. And lots of them too. Where ever there are groups of people, people bond to form a block agains other (groups of) people. It's simply the nature of things.

Here's one I made up that could explain a lot:
What if big oil companies and people in high places in governments conspire to pollute the air and water we live from? If everything is polluted, the only way to get our hands on clean air and water is to pay for it. With labor, sex, money.

And what if real estate people, builders and people in high places in governments conspire to rage wars? Destructive wars. So whole cities need to be rebuild? Guess who will get the contracts?

Too far fetched? Remember Larry Silverstein? He made plans for a totally new WTC-7, just about a year before the building (which he owned) collapsed. Coincidence? Why would anyone design a rebuild when the 'old' building is still standing and in perfect condition? And why did mr. Silverstein have his terror insurance pay out DOUBLED just weeks before the World Trade Center Towers (which he had purchased just months before) collapsed on 9/11. And isn't it an amazing coincidence Mr. Silverstein (click) had just gotten the rights to build new towers on the spot of the old ones 'in case they would come down due to a terrorist attack'?

It's what he actually said: 'Let's pull the building.' In other words:
the building (WTC-7) was brought down on purpose (that's what 'to pull' means). So it did NOT collapse because it caught fire after it got hit by a piece of flying debris. Did you ever see a skyscraper come down because it got hit by a burning piece of debris? You never could have because that's physically impossible.

Mr. Silverstein got 'a bit of profit' out of the 9/11 terror attack: $4.55 Billion. That really is a lot of money. You would think he would have given some of that money to the families of those who died in the attack. But has he?

On the other hand: here are people doing their utmost to debunk above claims. And they really are doing a great job! Judge for yourselves (click)!

And isn't it a coincidence that mayor Guilliani was warned to go away further from the towers 'because they will come down soon' but he and the unknown inidividual who warned him 'forgot' to tell the civilians and firefighters who were still in the building? And isn't it a coincidence both Mr. Silverstein and Mr. Guiliani are close friends with the current President of the United States? Who - coincidentally of course - happens to be 'into construction and ownership of large buildings in New York'?

Yes, of course you can call all of the above 'a coincidence' but I think most things happen for a reason. What do you think?

Let me know in the comments.

Perhaps there's a conspiracy going on, making us believe in conspiracy-theories in stead of conspiracies.

Can only Muslims be terrorists?

When a Muslim conducts a terrorist act that is proof all Muslims are basically terrorists! Right? No. Wrong. Very wrong. When a man killed five people at an Orlando airport a lot of people simply assumed it was a Muslim terrorist attack. When it became clear the killer was not a Muslim he suddenly turned into 'a troubled young man'. Same thing in Melbourne when a man drove his car deliberately into a crowd, killing five people including a baby, a lot of people simply assumed it was a Muslim terrorist attack. When it became clear the killer was not a Muslim he suddenly turned into 'a troubled young man'.

Why is that? Did someone state that only Muslims can be terrorists? Was every Irish person a terrorist in the years the Irish Republican Army (IRA) was very active in killing people with guns and explosions? Was every Christian a terrorist when the Crusaders set out to kill everyone who refused to be converted to Christianity?

When there was a muslim terrorist attack that killed over 30 people, why did no one ad the colours of that country to their Facebook profile picture out of sympathy with the victims? Is it simply because the victims had a dark skincolour because the attack happened in Somalia? If you do want to show your support with those poor people: this is what the flag of Somalia looks like:

When the 45th president of the United States of America stated there was a terrorist attack in Sweden, the night before he held his first rally for the elections of 2020, the Swedes were surprised (click). Yes, there had been an awful attack. But months earlier. And it was a bunch of white supremacists that cowardly attacked asylum seekers.  The terrorists were not Muslim refugees but 'decent white local Christians'. Yes, we have a president who clearly lies for no other reason than to make sure Muslims are hated. And he's not being impeached.

If God exists, I'm sure he would punish Trump for pretending to be a Christian. But alas:


You could read my words (and I do have more. Believe me) but perhaps it's easier if I just showed you a picture and a quote from a little girl who got killed because 'the land of the free' turned down her visa application: Anne Frank

Now, replace the word 'Jew' with 'Muslim' and try not to feel embarrased.
Good luck!

Why do we kill people?

Rules should apply to everyone and always! Yes? Apparently not. Most people can't get away with stealing 100 dollars. Yet others easily get away with stealing millions. It's illegal to kill an other person. Let alone if that person is unarmed and severely wounded. Unless the one pulling the trigger is an Israeli soldier (click) and the victim is a Palestinian who minutes before stabbed an Israeli soldier. Right?

But if we kill other people to show other people that killing people is wrong, what values are we defending?

It clearly was not a case of self defense. The shooter consciously took the decision to aim and fire, planting a bullet in the head of an already taken down enemy. Most judges would judge that to be cold blooded murder. Here's a link to the filmed incident (please do not watch if you can't stand people getting killed):
