Hello! I can not believe that summer is already over. Nevertheless, before we all know it, the year will whiz past us, and we will be taking the finals in spring and it’ll be summer all over again.
This semester I have taken an Honors seminar that I think is pretty cool. It is called “Conspiracies in a Global Context.” Professor Koerber teaches the class. I have only joined the class recently, and attended only one session, and I am already in love with it! We amassed a list of enigmatic conspiracies of all time and tried to categorize them. It was so fascinating. As a result, I have prepared for you a very brief list of some of the world’s most sought after conspiracies of all times. Now, keep in mind, I am not saying these are necessarily true; this is just for pure entertainment. Feel free to comment on any other ones you know below. Enjoy 😀 !
- Codex Alimentarius
The Codex Alimentarius is a guidebook developed by the World Health Organization that delineates rules and regulations concerning food labeling safety. The conspiracy goes that this codex might just end humankind. Apparently, there are peculiar titles in their agenda, which is available to the public through a simple Google search. Some of these titles include “Population Control Under the Guise of Consumer Protection”, and “An Introduction to Soft Kill Eugenics.”
2. Project Blue Beam
This is apparently a conspiracy involving NASA. It goes that NASA is trying to enforce New Age religion. This religion is centered around the belief of spirituality with great emphasis on individualism. It is also heavily influenced by Eastern cultures. In addition, the conspiracy theory states that NASA is working with the AntiChrist, an opponent of Jesus Christ who is supposedly to appear when it is the end of the world, to gain control of and run the world.
3. Aurora Aircraft
Aurora was said to be a reconnaissance aircraft. Reconnaissance aircraft is designed for various intelligence purposes including spying and intercepting communication via signal intelligence. However, the US government insists that Aurora was never built or flown.
4. Project MKULTRA
This was allegedly a secret CIA project researching the role of drugs such as LSD, MDMA (ecstasy), barbiturates, and psilocybin (mushrooms) on mind control, interrogation methods, and psychological torture. The project went on from 1953 to about 1973. Also, a man named Frank Olson, who used to work for the CIA at the time of the project, died mysteriously. His death was believed to be staged by the CIA to look like a suicide when , in fact, the CIA might have assassinated him.
ACORN stands for Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now. This organization aimed to tackle issues such as voter registration, affordable housing, and other economic and social issues that the poor might be facing in neighborhoods. The conspiracy theory associated with this organization goes that Obama was working with this organization and it helped Obama win the election in 2008. The conspiracy theory also states that ACORN was hiding the fact that Obama was actually born in Kenya.
