Do you believe every conspiracy? Does the fact that they published them make you believe them more? Do you not think that there are people out there making a ton of money from the Industry? Because, that's what it is, an Industry. Many groups want a piece of that pie! Also there are different factions out there spinning lies about each other.
Common sense tells me that Anonymous is a perfect vehicle for infiltration. Even if it was started by a hacker collective, which I highly doubt, it is very open to infiltration and control. Entire groups within it's hierarchy are in fact anonymous It's all a bit obvious and silly if you ask me.
Imagine a life where you are helpless and you are told your government are evil but you can't do anything about it?
Have you ever read about social group dynamics? How victimization and bullying can lead to stunted development and early death?
If I wanted to control the population or a demographic, I would make life as brutal and short as possible while deliberately promoting and enhancing certain sections of society and making it very obvious that I am prejudiced and conspiring against you.
I would also spread a ton of false information to muddy the waters and trap you, allowing me to discredit you and your ilk, steer you into developing false hypothesis and use that to control you and achieve my desired outcome.
There are some people out there who believe we live in a type of shared consciousness where we create our collective reality. They think they can achieve their desired outcome by convincing the group consciousness that a constructed paradigm is reality.
A quote from Bert Leysath:
"There are only 2 types of reality, both subjective.
Primary Reality – that which is directly perceived (perception is reality) i.e., feedback from one’s present environs processed in real time.
Secondary Reality – that which is imagined to be occurring elsewhere processed haphazardly.
The most common type of secondary reality is media produced. Media presents a smorgasbord of horrors in an unbalanced ratio to a smattering of “feel good” information. All of this is abstract and has no basis in one’s reality unless one permits it egress (it’s difficult to deny it entry).
The imagination then conjures up all sorts of scenarios which in turn affects one’s primary reality by causing one’s endocrine system to pump anxiety promoting chemicals into the bloodstream. Fight or flight, fear and loathing, empathy and love, it’s all subjective (as is everything in one’s personal reality).
Those who would sell their agenda are master manipulators of secondary reality either intuitively or calculatedly. They proffer their wares to their subjective audience couched in the guise of objectivity which is perceived (again perception is reality) as tangible due to the body response which reinforces the vicious cyclic feedback loop of response (emotional mind/body) which impels many to action. Those targets then acting in the manner that was desired and hopefully amplifying the message via social means which at best fosters group-think and at worse mob mentality."
These are just my opinions of course.
