Conspiracy theories have always fascinated people. So much so that they look for conspiracy theories not only in the assassination of John F. Kennedy or the collapse of the Soviet Union but also in small everyday things like the 5G towers and COVID.
And all that to find a simple explanation for everything in this complex world. While the vast majority of the theories look more like they were written by some guy on shrooms, at least some of them turned out to be true.
1. Social networks were created and are used by the government
Special services and law enforcement agencies are really happy to use the information that users voluntarily post on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and any other social networks. At the same time, there are multiple reports that the owners of these networks directly cooperate with the secret services. Naturally, such reports have to be taken with a grain of salt, but it’s very likely that the G-men can at least monitor social networks on their own.
2. HAARP is developing an energy weapon
The company manufacturing High-Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) has been repeatedly accused of manipulating the weather and causing destructive cataclysms in the past 10-15 years. The “witnesses” say that it is not a scientific study but a geophysical weapon that disrupts the natural climate of the Earth. Of course, the HAARP people deny everything.
3. Antivirus devs create new viruses to remain profitable
This is the oldest “IT” conspiracy theory, based on a completely rational approach because the very existence of computer viruses is the basis for the well-being of antivirus developers. However, we can safely say that drug fighters benefit from the existence of drug dealers, the IRS from tax evaders, and the police from catching bad guys. But most likely, yeah, the AV people are making things worse to make things better.
