George Orwel once said “During times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act.’ In the age of corona virus and other crises, I would tweak it a little bit to be “During times of universal deceit, telling the truth makes you a conspiracy theorist’.
I have noticed that over the last couple of weeks and since the outbreak of corona virus that anyone disagrees with the mainstream media is immediately convicted of being a conspiracy theorist. Passing judgement, giving a different analysis or even criticizing government response make you a conspiracy theorist.
Certainly, there are conspiracies and plots as we are not living in Aristotle utopia, but let’s forget this word “conspiracies” which puts everyone on the conviction list and learn how to read and interpret history. Time reveals all plots and conspiracies.
We can argue till the morning that something is conspiratorial or not, most important is to understand and connect the dots. Almost nothing happened throughout history and remained a secret. Time namely history is the best tool to understand whether something was planned to happen or naturally happened.
