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 we end world hunger? Short answer: yes.

People are starving. And that's a bad thing. There's more than enough food to feed every single person on this planet. And that's a good thing. People can't afford to buy food and therefore starve to death. And that's a bad thing. The good thing is that something can be done about that. The bad thing is that apparently ALL governments prefer to spend money on weapons in stead of on people. As The Donald would say: sad.

In my humble opinion the biggest problem here is greed.

Why is it so funny to make fun of another person's handicap?

Why is it so funny to make fun of another person's handicap?

It is usually done by bullies. Like Donald Trump. Remember this?


Now, Donald Trump is known for making fun of people. Like people who think he is serving their best interests. A close friend of his is former UKIP frontman Nigel Farage. Here they are standing in front of golden doors. Just before stating they want to tax millionairs more. Yes, they are lying. Again.


But why is it considered a handicap when you're not like most others? Well, most others get very uncomfortable thinking of being different. That's why they laugh. It's really - originally - not because they find it amusing but a show of strength: 'Look how big and sharp my teeth are. I eat raw meat with those, you know. So you should be no problem, should you wish to fight.'

Back in ye'ole days you had to be strong - or at least to be able to pretend to be strong - because that was the only way to survive. These days we have guns. And supermarkets. On top of that we developed another skill to make us live another day: cleverness. But soms still find it enough to (pretend to) be strong.

Basically: people who make fun of other people because of their different appearance are simply scared sh*itless.

So no, having OCD is NOT funny. It really isn't. And no, you don't have OCD but are simply annoyed at things being not the way you want them to be. Listen to this guy:
