What's your favorite, or craziest conspiracy theories you know of?
Recently watched some of Joe Rogan vs Alex Jones and seemed like a good discussion.
I found out this one quite recently: strangely ideal circle that, when drawn on a spherical map, connects many of the ancient sites throughout the world including Giza, macchupicchu, easter islands, Ur, Petra etc. Makes my nerdy sensors tingle...

the hollow earth theory is one of my favorites.
And of course hollow earth sounds like something from a movie. Under the second sun underground, the Fourth Reich led by Elvis is breeding dinosaurs and preparing for an invasion on us, surface dwellers.

My favorite is John Lang and the Fresno Police Department. It scares me.

Buddy Web i think in Texas who thinks the police have tunneled underneath his house to operate a prostitution ring out of his attic. Ended getting shot in the foot 'from beneath his floor'.

First a reminiscence: I remember the early days of the anti Iraq war movement there was often a small but vocal contingent of “9/11 truthers”. Anti-authoritarian and anti-capitalist movements eventually took steps to push them out. At first I couldn’t understand why. Didn’t it seem plausible that men in smoky back rooms were making power moves, even according to leftist theory? But I realized that when you dug into the politics of these conspiracists though you would inevitably find ravings about the federal reserve and the rothschilds, insistence on the gold standard and constitutional originalism, all articulated by white dudes on the far right. Left theory doesn’t discount conspiracies by the elite, rather it points out how society as a whole takes the form of such a conspiracy. There’s no need to dig deeper and those who insist on doing so(on the most vaporous of evidence) would ultimately rather cover up the shape of things as they already manifestly are.

Conspiracy theories are enticing for those who can’t or won’t process the big picture of what is actually, more or less clearly and legally happening in front of them in our society, and typically involves a fair amount of projection as any paranoid delusion.

Case study 1: as has been clearly analyzed by many left theorists, society is controlled by the capitalist process of accumulation. It’s simple to understand as anyone who has worked for a wage: the boss is keeping a portion of what our labor is worth as profits that partly go back into control of the enterprise as a whole (e.g. automation that gradually makes workers obsolete, making our labor less valuable day by day) and partly into his pocket, becoming all the nice houses and yachts he owns and more importantly investment stakes in the economy as a whole. The right wing conspiracist take is to blame “international bankers”, i.e. Jews, fetishizing a distinction between ‘bad’ financial capital and ‘good’ industrial capital, a distinction with no basis in reality; that is, an ideological mirage that protects capitalism.

Case study 2: pizzagate/q and the other variants. There is zero evidence for this anti leftist and extremely wild narrative while border authorities are mass disappearing refugee children right now, and while all sorts of violence and abuse is perpetrated in the households of ‘normal’ America, especially the right wing Christian white supremacist patriarchs. Who benefits from circulating such a pile of senseless far-right boomer Facebook rumors(“theory”)?

Tl;dr There are no Illuminati or international Jews running the world. The workings of white supremacist, patriarchal colonial capitalist system are obvious and out in the open. Conspiracy theories are there to distract you- mainly those who already benefit from them, i.e. ideology perfected.

I'm really into this whole "penis earth" theory, people sayin' the earth isn't actually round, but its far more phallic and resembles like a penis/ballsack or something. What do you guys think?

Yeah I dove into this one a while back, pretty fascinating. I used to live in the Central Valley which is how I heard about it.

I just got back to LA from the Bay - it was a very busy but happy trip. Went to Mt. Diablo, went to Berkeley and the City, even met up with @beyondthepaleogender! I did Craigslist rideshare both there and back, and both rides went fucking awesome :) Gonna post up for a bit and then I will (finally) begin hitchhiking east. Also - as of yesterday, I have been modding /r/Runaway for exactly a year now! :)
