    Hi all, at work we are getting people to do a mini 10 min presentation on something, just to break up the covid lockin. I was asked to do some conspiracy ones.
    As it is work, it would need to be nothing religious/race based, probably non current political, nothing "dark arts", etc. I was thinking doing maybe something about dinosaurs not being real, aliens, time travel. Something a little more "fun".
    Just wondering what your fave "conspiracy lite" topics are!

    How about the Fabian Society? The British think-tank founded in 1884 which has been promoting “democratic socialism” ever since.

    Just learned that in military tactics, Fabian strategy, refers:

    Well known members of the society included Alduous Huxley, who later initiated George Orwell (real name Eric Arthur Blair) to the Fabians (which makes sense of why they wrote such detailed worldviews)

    the best part? Their unambiguous logo:

    Although they’ve softened up their brazen symbolism more recently

    if you want to dig deeper, it’s apparently named after the Roman general, Quintus Maximus Fabius, who pioneered those very tactics against Hannibal in the Punic War (which by the way, refers to Phoenicians.. the rabbit hole goes deep!! :eek::rolleyes:

    Jeez, man, that's a great question.

    The "litest" ones I can come up with are:

    Obama's Birth Certificate - If you have some experience with digital image editing, and can get a copy of it, you can do all the analysis yourself. It's mind blowing to see how poorly it was put together.

    Tuskegee Syphilis Experiments - The reason we have "Informed Consent" today.

    The First Gulf War - Operation Desert Sheild/Desert Storm has many facets.

    -No babies ripped from incubators.

    -By "liberating" Kuwait, the US brought slavery back to the land. Even now, Kuwaiti princes give slaves to each other as birthday presents. Iraq was one of the few countries in the region to have abolished slavery and have documented prosecutions of slave traders.

    -Diagonal Drilling. Before the hostilities, Saddam Hussein went to the United Nations multiple times to ask them to stop Kuwait from engaging in this practice and pumping Iraq's oil out from underneath it. The UN did nothing.

    -The Stealth Bomber. The Cold War was over and many in congress wanted to stop funding large weapon projects. On the day congress was scheduled to vote to discontinue funding the project, we all awoke to the headline "Iraq Invades Kuwait."

    The Gulf of Tonkin Incident - The lie that got the US into Vietnam.

    Pearl Harbor - The foreknowledge of the impending attack and the scapegoating of Admiral Kimmel.

    (I always have trouble finding this video, so I figured I'd hook you up)




    The Creation of Money - Only just recently, the Bank of England admitted that every time anyone gets a loan from a bank, new money is created that must then be paid back to the bank with interest. This seemingly violates the basic legal doctrine of "Consideration" for contracts.


    Hope those help, dog.
