    There are certain buzzwords that if posted the government will immediately investigate. If the government percieves something to be a big enough issue they can be on your tail faster than a fish to water. While some of the public faces of government may feign incompetancy behind the scenes the government has some of the greatest minds in the country. They are highlighted, you cannot let people think that the government is too strong because they need to have the allusion of freedom. If people do not have that it could lead to disgruntlement, disorder, and dissolution. The majority can always find a way to control the minority, all throughout history they have.

    All it takes is one strong mind, everyone else is a follower. Just look at Napoleon.

    There's a lot I can answer to here, but as I said before, my belief, by observation and understanding, in the general ineptitude of people is the cornerstone of my sanity and goodwill.

    I am very sane... My psychiatrist told me so



    Honestly though, conspiracy theories dont really scare me or anything. They generally just make me curious and are really entertaining. They dont bore me, and they dont bother me, and I like getting buried in one and digging up a new gem.

    I've got an edge of paranoia, which is why this subject is srs bzns to me. You've basically setup a situation where upon you've assumed the existence of a group of people, ascribed them with the expressed directive to subvert your free-will, and the capabilities to do so in an effectively secretive manner. Now, I know this is something that people in power would love to be able to do, and have attempted in the past, and do so in the present in ways, I'm not denying that at all. I just have never seen any evidence to ascribe any group the level of effectiveness that you allude to.

    And, what I described above cannot be proven or disproven and is the perfect void to project all of your deepest fears into.

    The illuminati, real, no? The only thing that matters is that they could be.

    It all really depends on your own personal concerns. But, from how I understand the world, the Illuminati could only be real if they weren't... human.

    There's a name for that:

    Hanlon's Razor

    Or:

    Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.
    These are words to live by.
    Forget the dead you've left; they will not follow you.

    They could be aliens, not outside the realm of possibility. There are tons of galaxies and planets out in the universe, all that needs to happen is for one advanced life form from another planet to come, figure out how to mimic human behavior, and find some way to come off as human. Who knows, maybe they suck themselves inside of random unsuspecting babies, take over their conciousness, and live their 'lives' through that person. Maybe they came way before and are members of a certain clan/ family of individuals. They could have been here all along, passing themselves off as humans, controlling us, and biding their time until we become totally dependant on the strength they provide. If they took the form of influential individuals, would you ever be able to tell? Can you ever truly know another human being?

    I've always wondered who I am, I just knew I couldn't be one of you.
