If anyone actually thinks that #10 is a crazy conspiracy theory and totally unfounded and don't even care to listen to the rationale for it being actually true, then you're either incredibly misinformed or simply a moron.

Have you guys seen that online video Zeitgeist? In a nutshell, 9/11 was part of a plan by the Council of Foreign Relations and the Rockefeller family to make people focus on Iraq and Afghanistan so that they could form a "North American Union" with Mexico and Canada, which would then fuse with the EU, African Union, and "soon to be" Asian Union to create a one-world government under the Rockefellers. They would then implant RFID chips in every person with all your money in it so if you rebelled they would turn off your chip.

I kid you not, people believe this stuff.

Nah, you can't pull something like that off... at least not without the backing of the Bilderberg Group. Cheesy

Nr. 10 is truth.

I disagree. If a pharma company found the cure for, say, diabetes, they would slap a patent on it and make a fortune. That would cause a huge stock spike, which benefits the people running the company.

Seriously, you are way overestimating the intelligence of big business Tongue

They not necessarily keep people sick but I several times heard about people who worked in it, and journalist's investigations saying that when they see that the development of a medicine would cost more than it would permit to earn, even if they have found something that would work on the disease, they don't try to develop it. And like this they use to let on the side all the diseases by which not enough people are touched to be profitable.

The worst point would be that they put patents on things that they discover even if they don't use it because being not enough profitable, in case, who knows, in the future, enough people are touched for it to become profitable, this I can't say but if I heard it happened too I wouldn't be surprised...

Of course subliminal messages don't work.

It's just a con.  Everyone knows that no one would be stupid Winston's tastes good like a cigarette should! enough to buy a product based on subliminal messaging.  Ads should be liminal and direct:

HEAD ON!  APPLY DIRECTLY TO THE FOREHEAD!

10.Big Pharma wants to keep you sick
Big Pharma wants to make a profit. How sick or healthy that makes anybody does not enter their considerations to even the slightest degree.

3.Subliminal Advertising works
Well, it probably better than the traditional type of corporate-produced advertising... billboards, ad breaks on television (the track record of which is bad enough that no established major company would pay for any, if they were wellrun.)

I may conceivably reconsider.

Knowing me it's more likely than not.

Again, you're WAY overestimating the intelligence and organization of management.

Exactly.

I would like to listen to your rationale though Marokai.

Why are Operation Ajax, Operation Northwoods, Operation Mockingbird, MKULTRA, Gulf of Tonkin incident, USS Liberty incident, Lusitania, Reichstag Fire, and the Great Fire of Rome not on this list? It couldn't have anything to do with those conspiracy theories being verified, could it? Roll Eyes

They would have had to have been a theory at some point in time before they were verified. I would assume that people who believed them to have been false-flags at the time would probably have been dismissed as lunatics too.

I love how BRTD never replies when sufficient logic is used.

Um... the Reichstag Fire (based on what evidence we have) wasn't the result of any sort of conspiracy. However nice it would be to belief otherwise.

     Which would assume that the word "theory" would need to be used in the colloquial sense of the word rather than the scientific sense. That aside, it is a plain fact that the term "conspiracy theory" is generally used to refer to things that are blatantly false.
