The course begins with a look at what conspiracy theories are, how they came about and the ways in which they are categorised. We’ll also consider conspiracies as a worldview and the psychology and sociology of conspiracy theories.
We’ll explore the origins and development of the New World Order concept, the Illuminati – who they are and what they are allegedly involved in – and celebrity blood sacrifice conspiracy theories.
Space-related conspiracy theories are covered, including those relating to the Moon landings, UFOs and extra-terrestrials. We’ll also explore political conspiracy theories, such as the Deep State and 9/11, and the numerous death conspiracies including those surrounding the deaths of Princess Diana and John F. Kennedy, John Lennon and Bob Marley, to name a few.
We’ll dive into medical conspiracy theories, including theories relating to the suppression of cures, artificial diseases, and vaccinations. We’ll also cover science and technology conspiracy theories, such as the Flat Earth movement and various global warming and weather control theories.
Whilst many conspiracy theories have remained as theories, there are those that have turned out to be true, including the false flag theories and conspiracies relating to Hollywood, the military, the government, and secret medical experimentation practices, such as MKUltra and the FBI’s counterintelligence program, COINTELPRO. The course concludes with an exploration of these examples of events that were once dismissed as conspiracy theories.
