TRUTHERS: WHY CONSPIRACIES OCCUR AFTER MASSIVE EVENTS

“Planned randomness, or randomness?”


No matter if it’s the September 11th attacks that claimed the lives of a few thousand to the recent mass shooting in Las Vegas, people are already starting to put together their conspiracies as to what “REALLY” took place in Vegas. And notice I said really in quotations. Because people have to believe that there has been some sort of foul play on the part of the government. Some type of false flag that leads us in a bad direction and away from the truth. And that truth has always been to divide and conquer. But why do people do it? Why must we come up with these different types of conspiracy theories to make sense of the events that take place in our lives? Does it have to do with some aspect of the truth? Or is it merely a reason to make sense of something that we have no control over?

One of the reasons we have these conspiracy theories is because our government is so secretive about so much. And what’s crazy at times, they don’t even have a legitimate reason to keep the secrets they keep. Once you find out what they have been keeping secret for so long, it makes you frustrated to the point where you start to get angry. And for that reason, you have these conspiracy theorists that conjure up these ideas for why it’s such a secret. For example, the John F. Kennedy assassination from back in 1963. His autopsy documents will not be released for over 50 years after the assassination of the president. And now people are thinking, our president was killed, how can the public, not even his wife be privy to what happened to her husband. But are there other reasons as to why we need these theories?

Another reason is because we live in a random universe where random things tend to happen that are out of our human control. And sense we see so much that we control, it’s hard to accept that we tend to lose control over what should be controlling. And if not for mother nature, we would say that man created the tornadoes and hurricanes we have on Earth. WAIT A MINUTE! We do point the finger to global warming, even though hurricanes have going on before the burning of fossil fuels. Our lives are mundane without the knowledge of man; and there is something, a force greater than us that we are helpless against. But the moment man breaks rules, obviously the government put this plot together. Because as powerful as our government is, how can a few or even one person do so much damage. The reality is yes, one person can; and it creeps people out.

In the end, you will always have people that believe in these conspiracies. The problem with the conspiracies are the secrecy of the people and the putting together of the plan. And even in the face of hard evidence we still deny. I heard a Russian former KGB in a video talk about people and their lack of believing even in the face of fact. He said you can show them documents, and even go as far as taking them to the place of interest. They will deny until it is far too late deny any longer. And by that time, your reality is in your face and too much to change by this time. People need answers and the harsh reality is that not everything has an answer. Some things are messed up, and that’s that.

OUTLAWZ: THE FASCINATION WITH THE CRIMINAL UNDERWORLD

Image result for criminal underworld

“They play hard, take what they want, and live it up.”


We watch movies about them, documentaries, and even read their life stories. They are the criminal underworld and for whatever reason we have this fascination with them. The most notable would have to be the Italian Mafia. They have been the interest and the inspiration for so many films in mainstream America. But what is it; what is it about these outlaws that intrigue society so much. The mafia is the biggest, there are also drug cartels and bank robbers as well. There is this mystique about them that attracts us to the life. None of us have the guts to live their lives, yet we are attracted to who they are and what they do.

Let’s look at the cast of people starting with the most popular; the American Mafia. No matter if it’s the Italians in New York and Chicago to the Irish in Boston, we are attracted like magnets to the mafia. From the way they dress to their cordial personalities. Even with the gentlemen like qualities, we still know what they are capable of doing under the right circumstance. But Image result for mafianonetheless we are allured by the racketeering, money laundering, loan sharking, gambling, and light weight drug trafficking. They take what they want and if the authorities put pressure on me, then hey, why not pay them off as well. Then once holidays come around, let’s hand out toys and turkeys to the community. It made them infamous with the law and revered with the public.

But what about the drug cartels? Guys like Frank Lucas to Pablo Escobar all the way to today with El Chapo. We hear about them running multi-billion dollar organizations and eluding authorities. Their lifestyles are so over the top with luxury vehicles, expensive jewelry, and palatial real estate. Their Related imagemuscle in how they deal with people leaves us terrified, yet they still have this aura about them that you stand on the sidelines and gawk. They have been immortalized in our pop culture, mainly through hip hop/rap lyrics. But why, what is the real reason we are so attracted to the criminal underworld?

In my opinion, they represent everything that we hate about our government, that the government makes us do. The don’t pay taxes, buy and sell whatever they want, and live over the top lifestyle most of us can only dream about. And when they die, we have these photos that almost serve as shrines making them martyrs. The communities they live in are more protected by them than our law enforcement. Everyone knows who runs the neighborhood and respects who runs the neighborhood. Unlike the judicial system which could allow people to walk free, you don’t break the laws and codes of their world. And that code is the biggest thing we respect. On paper, systematically, there is code in our society, but our politicians break that code and promise at every turn.

In the end, we will always be fascinated with the criminal underworld. Their lives seem to be so much more fascinating than our own lives. Plus, the very representatives that are hired to represent the people, these criminals flip them the finger to. We’re able to look on at how for once politicians are forced to do their jobs to catch these outlaws. The allure to the gangster lifestyle is eternal and will never end. Because as long as there is a law that could potentially be broken, someone will always try to find ways around it.

STREET ENTREPRENEURSHIP: IF INNER HUSTLERS COULD HARNESS THAT FOR GOOD

Image result for DRUG DEALER

“Imagine with the heart and fearlessness came real ingenuity.”


For me growing up, I was born in the year 1987, a time when Crack Cocaine was in full swing. Everyone was selling drugs, so much so, you would have thought it was a legitimate 9 – 5. Luckily for me, I didn’t grow up in a household where narcotics was sold. But I did live in a community where people bought and sold drugs. Young people who ranged from middle school to their late adulthood were selling drugs. As I got older, the trend didn’t slow down, it kept steady. And a next generation was running toward the narcotics business full steam ahead.

So in my mind, I said to myself, “What would happen if these young males could harness that skill?” “Harness that skill and put it into real business ventures.” They have the heart and the fearlessness to persevere, but they want the fast money. And that’s what makes it difficult to get these young men to turn their lives around. The addiction to the fast money. Only problem is that the few guys at the top make big money. The ones at the bottom take the most risk and make the least amount of money. But the guys at the top started somewhere. And it was somewhere, at the bottom. So if these young guys are willing to climb that ladder, why not the legit ladder.

Yes, the money is quicker, but when you factor in the time spent hanging around to sell. Then you take that and calculate the odds of you dying or going to prison, it’s not worth it. So my next question is, “How do we steer young men from selling drugs.” You’re obviously not going to reach everybody. But the goal is not to reach everybody, it’s to show them there are options. When you are an outsider looking in you say there are options. But living there, you know there are some people with no choice. I would love to see the ability to choose. If you choose that live, so be it. But you have too many choosing that life that are not in a position to have to sell drugs.

Let’s say we are able to harness that street entrepreneurship, what could we do with it. Well, we could build and sustain a stronger civilization. People looking in say, “These are nothing but common thugs.” But if not for informants, the DEA and FBI would have a tough time busting drug dealers. The organizations are so tightly nit, that informants are needed. They run multimillion operations under the radar. And the leaders do so without showing their faces. I wouldn’t say these are a group of thugs. They have plenty of education, but with no place to put it, it will be used for bad. Who could be the creators of America’s next innovative idea, now becomes public enemy number one.

A major aspect in reaching the next group is through after school activities. With so much of their time taken up, there is no time for breaking the law. You can start to wean-out a lot of what could turn into the next criminals of tomorrow. Issues you run into with this is political. And so many people feel the politicians are a contributor to the madness. In the end, what do we do as a community. One generation dies and another is born and the same game is played. You would think a lesson is learned from the prior generations. Yet, these young men join, they sell, not knowing that they are next. The next group to go to jail, never to see freedom again.

LOCKED and LOADED

Image result for gun seizure

“Where did they come from?”

The above photo which shows guns lying out on a table are not in preparation for a gun show. This is not a manufacturing plant either. The guns above are of many firearms seized from drug/gang raids by the police. The topic of illegal firearms have been on a lot of people’s minds lately. Well, actually, guns in general have been a long debate in this country for some time. But when we discuss the illegal guns nowhere is it more prevalent than in inner cities across the country. Why do inner cities get so much attention. Well, that’s where the disproportionate amount of violent crime where guns are used occur.

Then a way to combat might be the suggestion from various political figures, such as the use of “Stop and Frisk.” This was a policy implemented in the city of New York to combat crime. Now during this time people said crime declined. Now did it, yes, but there was blow-back. Why, if it worked? This is why because the criminals were not being stopped. It was everyday citizens who have done nothing wrong. So my best guess as to why the crime decreased is because criminals saw the tactics and slowed their firearm carrying.

Now, a politician might say, hey, they are thinking twice. So what the people were innocent, at least criminals thought before carrying. Well no. Well why no if the crime went down. This is why; yes the criminals think twice, but what happens is people who are innocent get disgruntled. And when that happens even when the crime decrease, you lose respect from the community. Once this happens, anytime the police need assistance on bigger cases, they are unable to come to this same community because the relationship is ruined. So in other words, you decreased violent crime, but you inadvertently made criminals more powerful. So now, they don’t need to carry guns, they have more willing cooperation from the people.

In addition, the policy was deemed unconstitutional considering it only targeted certain minority groups. But guns are still an issue. Let’s say for instance Stop and Frisk worked how the city wanted it to work. Then guns would constantly be removed from the street. But you run into another problem. Eventually the citizens would want to know where these guns are coming from. And that’s when the plot thickens. Because how does a kid from the housing projects shy of his 18th birthday manage to get a hold of military style weapons?

Here is when the idea of corruption comes into play. There aren’t any gun manufacturing plants  in inner cities. So how does a teenager from an inner city get his hands on guns ranging from handguns to assault rifles? Well, the reply is that they are stolen. Well, let’s analyze that fore a moment. A handgun could be stolen or illegally purchased. But purchased from who? Who are guys in the street getting their guns from? But also, how are assault rifles being funneled into inner cities? You keep throwing out Stop and Frisk all you want, eventually you have to answer the question of where do these guns come from?

I had a guy in middle school brag to me once about how he owned a gun that belonged to a police officer. That’s odd, police firearms on the streets. Then I started thinking about why guns are in the inner cities. Drug dealers need guns to perform their jobs. How do they do so without guns for protection? Then with a mixture of guns and drugs, we now have to now create a budget for FBI and DEA, as well as the ATF. Men are placed in prisons all over the country and private cooperations capitalize off the inmates. And there you have it, an entire production line.

Yet all it will take is for one of those guns to be used in the death of an innocent White male or female, then you’ll see the FBI and ATF work to try to look like heroes. But once that happens it has to be for good. Meaning, bye bye narcotics, bye bye privatized prisons. And that’s when the illusion becomes real. To say we need to Stop and Frisk without working to keep guns from coming in, in the first place, is like saying three buildings constantly keep catching on fire just water them down. Eventually, people are going to want to know what is it about these three buildings that keep catching on fire.
