    As a neutral on the above matter... May I ask... Why is it that anything deemed to be a conspiracy and theory... Naturally played down and the people who make claims of these conspiracies...are made to look like whack jobs?...Guy Fawkes conspired to blow up the houses of Parliament...and the people who alerted the authorities and thwarted Guy Fawkes's plan...we're they "conspiracy theorists"?... It makes no difference to me but I have to say to dismiss and undermine conspiracy theorists as whack jobs only reeks of ignorance... In my opinion...so in future shall we ignore every warning given to us 🤔

    People during early wake of COVID: Follow the rules, don't touch each other, STAY INDOORS! Same people: Protest for BLM 'during a pandemic' unless you racist. 'people went out in public by the thousands' So of course people are going to believe conspiracies.

    Another thing John left out is that believing in a conspiracy creates a feel good sensation that *you know something others don't* or that you're in into *a secret*. It's another reason why it can be so hard for people who believe in one to "get out". But the biggest challenge is that zero out of ten people like to admit they're wrong or believed in a lie, doubly so because they turn the belief into part of their own self, so to speak, so, to them, attacking the theory is a personal attack.

It’s not our fault, kids these days spend all their time on their parents couch. Hell they don’t even kiss each other anymore...last week I had more pass alongside to robots from Japan then actual skin to skin contact. Syphilis: I used to be known as the love disease...now I get passed along to more panties stuck on a nose of some creep then actually enjoying my time with two fucking adults....TOGETHER! HIV: settle down please. We are needing something new. Something that people think is a hoax but gamers can catch even in the safety of their home! DOOR SLAMS OPEN: I hear you need an infiltrator? HIV: who the hell are you? Mysterious figure: I’m your fucking angel.. a god send as you will. I’ve got the halo to prove it. I’ll ensure everyone who is dumb will get it and everyone else will fear it till their loneliness breaks them mentally where your skin to skin contact will not be so worried about by time people loose their shit. People will care more that they need to put a uncomfortable mask on and expose themselves to others just to get a condom...so the sheer exhaustion of that process they’ll just say we will pull out.... 2021: HIV...welcome sexual monsters to 2021....Corona virus your strategy worked so well that herpes and syphilis had a baby. So thank you again. Hip hip hurray for corona!
