Do the Illuminati rule the world? Are people secretly working together to control and organize the world? Is questioning the hidden agenda of elites — whether large financial institutions or secret societies — really quite sane? Answering the questions will produce a conspiracy theory; the plethora of empiricists and liberals will call it non-sense.
The problem with conspiracy theories is that these are often rejected as an offshoot of sheer absurdity. The main argument is: we don’t like to face the fact that our world is suffering from tumult, incompetence, and jumble, so we take refuge under the bunch of conspiracy theories. The counter-argument is, the world is confusing and complex, so we have to flirt with intricate conspiracy theories in the quest for truth.
Did the Chinese President Xi Jinping reveal too much?
You know that what’s the biggest dilemma of today’s world? One can easily call someone’s bluff by labelling it a conspiracy theory. No matter how appealing a theory is, the veneer of conspiracy is enough to downright reject it. But nevertheless, amidst all the disdain for hidden truth by piling up stack of conspiracies over it, the view of Confucius cannot be suppressed at all. While revealing truth, he once said: “There is nothing more real than what can’t be seen and there is nothing more certain than what can’t be heard.”
The saga which the world faces today, has worsened due to COVID-19. It can be traced back to January 2019, when Chinese President Xi Jinping first time warned the world against “black swan” and “grey rhino” financial events amidst economic downturn. For purpose of acquaintance, a “black swan” is an unpredictable market event with extreme financial repercussions; while a “grey rhino” is a large, visible threat that goes ignored. Pradeep Taneja, a specialist in Chinese politics, was of the opinion that, while the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) was always careful to avoid outright alarm, Mr. Xi’s speech invited deep concern. The Chinese never raise concerns. They never say that things are bad. They always propagate the perception of normalcy. Chinese politics was like reading tea leaves—you’re always trying to read between the lines of what was being said.
Of course, Chinese President was mindful of the intelligence information when he issued such an alarming statement in January 2019. As time passed, people forgot about the perils of black swan or grey rhino. Though, there were some indications that something surreptitious was going to happen, yet the march of progress went uninterrupted by simply ignoring the threats qua conspiracy theories.
What did the astrologers predict?
Even the world astrologers, by tracking down the movement of planets were making predictions that the Year 2020 will kick-off with some colossal sea changes. As per their horoscopes, the entire international order might have turned upside down in the wake of futuristic events. Here it is pertinent to name Prof. Ghani Javed, an astrologer, who got the title of “Prophet of Doom” on account of his pessimistic and horrific predictions. Yet no one seriously bothered about that. And for what reason should someone bother? When predictions are made merely on the basis of astrology is all, but a dumb thing to do.
Hollywood predicts Covid-19
Apart from astrology, there are some forecasts that are made by a section of media in terms of movies, web originals and print journals. While watching Hollywood movies, fiction laden with danger entertains you, once you encounter a similar experience in real life, it’s stunning to say the least. Illustrations are countless. For instance, “Contagion”, an American movie released in 2011, followed the rapid progress of a deadly airborne virus that was carried by a lady after her visit to a Chinese city. This virus killed many people within days, all around the globe.
Today in 2020, COVID-19 is a real trial of 2011 Contagion evoking contagiousness, lock down, economic plunge and mortalities. Similarly, “Geostorm”—a 2017 American science fiction disaster film in which weathers all around the world are manipulated via harp technology to punish a non-compliant country not by any open coercion one like war but by harp-engineered quakes, tsunamis and hurricanes. To Global Research, HARP is a secret weapon used for weather modification, electromagnetic warfare. According to Michel Chossudovsky,
“It isn’t just conspiracy theorists who are concerned about HAARP. The European Union called the project a global concern and passed a resolution calling for more information on its health and environmental risks.”
Malicious ends are achieved hence by shifting the blame towards nature instead of a mischievous man. The count isn’t finished yet. Jump to animation. The Simpsons is an American animated sitcom that makes predictions ever since its debut in December 1989. Eighteen times ‘The Simpsons’ accurately predicted the future according to Business Insider. “The Simpsons” anticipated 19 years ago that Donald Trump would one day become the US President. And here today we are enduring Donald Trump as a ‘beau ideal’ of flapdoodle. Not to forget, Sylvia Browne’s “End of Days: Predictions and Prophecies about the End of the World” who exactly predicted 12 years ago, about Corona virus.
She says, “In around 2020 a severe pneumonia-like illness will spread throughout the globe attacking the lungs and the bronchial tubes and resisting all known treatments.”
Mere predictions or divine revelations?
Annotations aptly described above are about predictions that are coming true. The question that raises eyebrows is “whether these predictions were divine revelations?”. The answer is no, they weren’t. The truth is, the clandestine forces or secret societies that manage the world have become much more powerful. Their vicious powers are touching their apogee to an extent where the events they engineer are being forecasted earlier by their agents. And for God sake, please don’t take it with the pinch of salt. If people deem this premise as a conspiracy theory, they should rather read “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion”.
The protocols are the minutes of a late 19th-century meeting where Jewish leaders discussed their goal of global Jewish hegemony by subverting the morals of Gentiles (non-Jewish nations), and by controlling the press and world’s economies. Even Hassan Nisar, a liberal, who rejects the idea of conspiracy theories, does not cease to refer the Protocols in his columns from time to time.
It is pertinent to mention that Israel has claimed the development of a vaccine to cure COVID-19. Israeli Health Minister recently revealed: “End of Days: Our Messiah is coming to rescue Jews.” The inventor of Israeli Vaccine who will cure the whole world of Corona illness will definitely put forth his demand. Definitely, as a quid pro quo of vaccine, he wouldn’t settle for less. What will his demand be? I leave you to decide. It’s also worth mentioning, the release of Messiah 2 has been delayed by Netflix. The reasons for which are still unknown.
