Q. Lewis, I keep on reading and getting links to Q-Anon, the Illuminati, and conspiracy theories about Bill Gates and the COVID-19 Virus. It doesn’t make any sense to me. Can you clarify any of what seems like conspiracy theories to me?
A. One of the things I dislike the most is dealing with people with strong opinions who have little or no facts to support their point of view. This way of thinking seems to be little more than gossip at best and dangerous, anti-intellectual rumor-mongering at worst. If a person is going to spread some nonsense across the internet at least they might take the time to have some evidence-based facts to back it up.
That is the problem with Q-Anon and the Illuminati. All meme, no facts. Let’s deal with Q-Anon quickly and move on. Q-Anon is a far-right conspiracy theory detailing, without evidence or facts. a supposed secret plot by an alleged “deep state” against U.S. President Donald Trump and his supporters. If you talk to a Q-Anon believer and ask them simple questions about what “Deep State” is or anything else for that matter related to the structure of the U.S. Government, the constitution, or the Bill of Rights they usually answer with a narrative that borders on science fiction and fantasy. One thing they can never offer is evidence-based facts. Q-Anon is a factless conspiracy theory and nothing more. Most of all it is dangerous.
Now let’s move on to this thing called The Illuminati. The Illuminati was a real organization however it has now become a silly, and dangerous excuse for promoting conspiracy theories of every type. Clearly the person who began this thread likes to make stuff up and cares little about actual facts.
People who spread these lies and false facts usually lack identity, or power, and believe almost anything they are told. They do very little research even when the facts are easily available. These individuals have the capability of getting suspicious about everything. They also tend to blame others for their problems even though many of their problems are the direct result of their making poor choices and believing inaccurate information. Just the kind of stuff being spread here.
As for Bill Gates A common myth and willful misunderstanding amongst many paranoid conspiracy fantasists is that Bill Gates has a lot to do with working to “depopulate the world”, because he has suggested that by advancing vaccination programs, he hopes that we could reduce population growth by 10% over the next few decades They seem to have a willful misunderstanding of facts, history, and critical thinking). They often accept a whole range of irrational and illogical myths about Gates, the Rothchilds, etc., and just accept what they are told as “facts” when they’re not even close.
The problem for Bill Gates is that he gives money towards all manner of areas of research that nutters just markdown as bad/evil. Vaccines, climate change, and basically anything humanitarian that he supports becomes suspect to them. I don’t agree with all that he does or believes but this conspiracy thing is really getting out of hand. If it was that good a conspiracy then 100,000 people wouldn’t be speaking about it on Facebook.
Additionally, like many, many others, he has talked about the risks of pandemics, so to people who do no critical thinking, that was him announcing what was to come by design.
Add to that his comments about SARS-CoV-2 etc, and you’ve got a recipe for people who rather than actually making a difference in the world dedicate their time to trolling, making lies go viral on the internet, and gossiping about things for which they know little and care even less.
This behavior borders on evil.
I think that a big problem for your average paranoid conspiracy fantasist with Bill Gates is that he certainly fits the status of ‘Elite’ with his wealth, but what they really can’t stand is that even with his past and to be diplomatic, his ‘sharp’ business practices, he’s a better person than they could ever be. So the good he does must be bad. It’s difficult to just project their bitter personalities onto him, as they generally do. If they had his money and his potential power, they’d use it to exact revenge on their imagined enemies (from the ‘Elites’ to anyone who points out that they are anti-intellectual, emotionally driven, lazy thinking gossips).
Now, back to the so-called “Illuminati”. Illuminati owing to its Latin origin means ‘enlightened’. Historically, the name refers to the Bavarian Illuminati, an enlightenment era —secret society founded in 1776 by Adam Weishaupt (a professor of Canon law and practical philosophy at the University of Ingolstadt, Germany ).
He founded the ‘order of Illuminati’, initially with the support of five members, resolving to spread the ideals of Enlightenment through some sort of secret society of like-minded individuals.
It was meant for intellectuals to privately group together and oppose the religious and elitist influence over daily life.
But, like the Freemasons, the Bavarian secret society also gradually got outlawed by the conservative and Christian critics and the group faded out of existence.
However the Illuminati prevailing today are outside of the influence of the Bavarians. The phenomenon got glamorized after the emergence of the book, ‘Principle Discordia’.
The Principia Discordia is a Discordian religious text written by Greg Hill (Malaclypse the Younger) with Kerry Wendell Thornley (Lord Omar Khayyam Ravenhurst). The first edition was printed using Jim Garrison‘s Xerox printer in 1963.
The Principia describes the Discordian Society and its Goddess Eris, as well as the basics of the POEE denomination of Discordianism. It features typewritten and handwritten text intermixed with clip art, stamps, and seals appropriated from other sources.
While the Principia is full of literal contradictions and unusual humor, it contains several passages that propose that there is serious intent behind the work, for example, a message scrawled on page 00075: “If you think the PRINCIPIA is just a ha-ha, then go read it again.”
It is not a serious book. It is satire! Get it, you conspiracy theory spewing, non-researching, lazy thinking, and trolling gossipers? Stop doing this and dedicate yourself instead to helping others.
