When something goes wrong, there may be an urge to point fingers and call out who is at fault. Although there may be a certain satisfaction in having someone to blame I do not believe that putting our energy in blaming ever solves problems. I am inclined to move forward and fix the issue.
When I think about pointing fingers, my first thought goes to conspiracy theorists. For example, in the website Want to Know.INFO they speak about cover-ups. Are there cover-ups and manipulations by the government and by the media industry as the website suggests? I am sure there are, but the website, for my perspective, feeds a steady diet of fear to its readers creating paranoia.
Perhaps I have my head in the sand, and am more optimistic than realistic, but I find it hard to believe that the government has mind control programs. Programs that produce assassins like the character Jason Bourne from the Bourne Trilogy. Don’t get me wrong; I love those movies, but a real life mind control program? I am not ready to go into that “rabbit hole.” The website asks us to keep an open mind, but are they? Perhaps the author/s on the site want to believe. We, humans, have incredible imaginations, and we are intrigued by campfire stories.
The biggest question of all for me isn’t about mind control, or assassins, or UFO’s, but is the information on this website credible? When exploring the web, like myself, you may wonder how to evaluate websites to know if the information they are presenting is trustworthy. A great site to start finding answers to your questions is Evaluating Blog Credibility. They discuss such things as the author, affiliations, and how often the website or blog is updated. All great things to keep in mind when we ask ourselves if we believe what we are reading.
