kakistrocracy: noun, Greek words kakistos (worst) and kratos (rule). In other words, rule by the Crime Syndicate.
Several of the kakistrocracy’s media tools have opened fire on the “conspiracy theory” community. On Monday, for example, British newspaper The Guardian allowed thought-crime think-tank ISD to chime in with the op-ed called “Stop the online conspiracy theorists before they break democracy.”
Even the op-ed’s subtitle contains not-so-thinly veiled neuro-linguistic programming and wash, rinse, repeat jamming: “Cannibals, aliens and clandestine lizard overlords: thanks to algorithms, such ideas threaten the future of Europe.”
Then it continues on with standard gaslighting.
Where to even begin? I have to say (as you can imagine) that I spend plenty of time in conspiracy theory circles (good, bad and indifferent- they can’t be generalized) and other than David Icke fans, I know of almost no one who seriously entertains lizard overlord theory or bothers to discuss this straw-man fallacy.
And democracy? There is no democracy to break. There never has been. There’s an acquisitive, authoritarian, inherently vile and deceitful ruling class (aka kakistocracy) and its Crime Syndicate apparatus, and there’s the rest of us. That last sentence is for all practical purposes the underlying conspiracy theory. Everything else (that we write about) stems to one degree or another off of that.
ISD then proclaims, “A stunning 60% of Brits believe in at least one conspiracy theory’.” One can bet that the survey didn’t ask respondents if they believe in lizard overlords and aliens, to use ISD’s own cheap misdirection. Rather, the survey question was undoubtedly broad — so broad as to include the dozens of conspiracy theories proven true in recent years.
Next, there is a veiled reference to a bunch of deranged basement-dwelling mama’s boys that have the power to take over and manipulate any social media discussion on the internet. Wow. Should we take that as a compliment or an insult?

As for the ISD, or Institute for Strategic Dialogue, how could anyone not trust an organization with a name like that? ISD brings together a range of the policy planning activities of Lord Weidenfeld. All but one of its trustees have connections with either the banking, finance or hedge fund sectors.
ISD is partnered with Carnegie Corporation NY, Eranda Rothschild Foundation, Gen Next Foundation, Open Society Foundations (aka George Soros), Robert Bosch Stiftung and Vodafone Foundation.
The same basic script and “narrative,” with a condescending gaslighting tone, came from the BBC on Feb. 12, 2019, in a piece titled “Why So Many People Believe Conspiracy Theories.” The writer tries to blow your pipes by explaining conspiracy theories emerge because “we are very good at recognizing patterns and regularities,” which equates as mental delusions, blah, delusions, blah.
Yes, for example, the “glitch in the matrix irregularity” on 9/11 when the BBC reported on air the collapse of World Trade Center Building 7 some 26 minutes before it actually happened. As you may recall, no planes ever hit WTC 7 – as if a plane could drop a steel skyscraper in the first place. But according to the BBC- nothing to see here move along, you crazies.
This is also the same BBC that “overlooked” (aka conspired to keep) one the most prolific high-profile pedophiles in the public eye and out of jail up to his death: Yes, the disgusting cigar-chomping monster and BBC employee Jimmy Savile.
Then yesterday the New York Times aka Slimes joined the fray – reading from the same tiresome declarative script with YouTube Unleashed a Conspiracy Theory Boom. Can It Be Contained?
I am not having the BBC, the Slimes and The Guardian of all kakistocratic media institutions, gaslighting me that disbelieving proven liars is the same thing as having a delusional mental illness. They would be better served by crawling back under their slimy rocks.
