If you believe this, you're a victim of disinformation meant to hide the real conspiracy… The truth is much simpler. Wealthy groups secretly aim to dominate all aspects of American society. They influence your purchases and online activity while profiting from your screen addiction. Wake up!
Conspiracy theories often stem from human nature's attraction to mystery and the idea of hidden power structures.
For example, the Illuminati was a real organization, which sought to influence political decisions by infiltrating government structures. But over time, the concept of the Illuminati has become a catch-all symbol for the belief that a shadowy elite group secretly controls world events.
This is fueled by a natural human tendency to find patterns and meaningful connections in complex or coincidental occurrences, also known as apophenia. People feel comforted by having a tangible source of blame for large-scale world events that seem otherwise random or too dauntingly systemic to tackle.
The secrecy and perceived exclusivity of the groups like the Illuminati create fertile ground for speculation and the development of elaborate theories. The idea of secret societies has always been compelling to the public imagination, and the Illuminati, with its historical roots and ambiguous purposes, fits perfectly into that narrative.
Conspiracy theories provide simple explanations for complex problems, filling gaps in understanding and offering a sense of control and insight to its supporters.
