Survival and Conspiracy Theory


I'm sure we all have that one friend or acquaintance who has a stack of National Enquirers and believes all he/she reads, sees and hears when it comes to the latest conspiracy theory. The Internet is full of these theories, and every Social Media site you can see them pumped out daily, and the theorists and non-theorists in a constant battle over who is right, and who is wrong.

Some of these ideas are so far-fetched, that anyone who has an IQ above 50 knows this. That is not to say that some theories are loosely based on actual fact. It also has been shown that some conspiracy theories from several years ago have been proven to be fact. Many of these theories revolve around space aliens, assassinations, and the one most common, government cover-ups. 

The sad part of any of these conspiracies eventually being proven is the event has already occurred, and it is now too late to do anything to stop it from happening. 

The Survivalists

Not far behind the conspiracy theorists, are the survivalists. These are the people who expect a great catastrophe to happen at any moment, and have hoarded supplies, such as food and water, equipment and let us not forget weapons. Some of these people have an arsenal that would make some mercenaries jealous. 

These catastrophes take the shape of many events, usually, with a lot of blood being shed, people dying in the streets, or a foreign army invading and taking over. Some even include a nuclear holocaust. If that happens, they had better have a bunker several feet underground lead-lined, and a great many other things to survive, although it's doubtful any of us would survive, we'd either be vaporized or just combust and form a little pile of radioactive ashes... 

I have a friend who has dedicated an entire room to survival. He has enough canned goods to open a store! Hundreds of plastic water bottles waiting to be filled in case of an event happening, although he should realize, if an event happens fast enough, there may not be time to fill them, or for that matter, grab the can opener! 


Anyone who may be reading this, please don't think I'm mocking those who are preparing for the worse. I actually admire their dedication and their initiative. We never know whats around the corner, when the big one will hit, or if someone from another place or land decides they want what we have. 

The problem with preparing for an unknown event is just that! What event is, if it happens, going to occur? Besides, many people today don't have the money or time to prepare for anything but getting up each day and going off to a job they make little money at, and hate! please don't say, "Well, if they have such a bad job, why don't they quit and get a better one?" BECAUSE in todays crappy economic times, there aren't that many around!

Also factor in the people like myself, who although at times finds it hard, I'm an optimist, I look at it as having to get better, and believe that is just what is going to happen!

  1. You’re right, a lot of conspiracy theories are based on some facts. And wow your not kidding when you say they are numerous on social sites. As we found out here, big brother was listening in. Our young people are really susceptible to these theories.
    As some point in time humans will probably kill off life on this planet.

  2. Well, I do think people should be prepared for certain things. I learned this living in hurricane country. I don’t want to have to run out to the store in a panic the day before a hurricane strikes. As for underground bunkers…. I live in Florida, I would drown in a bunker since you don’t go down too far before you hit water. LOL
