After being here for quite a while, I've begun to have a respect for the theories as explanations of events that are happening behind the scenes. Even if they aren't completely accurate, they can help us get closer to what is actually happening. We shouldn't always get too obsessed in finding the whole truth but that doesn't mean we shouldn't try either. However, a current problem that I see in our community is the arrogance of believing that we can know what TPTB are planning and normal people can't, which is partially true, but we should be careful with that arrogance because it can lead us into following false narratives and dysinfo too. There is a huge effort from the people who attack the conspiracy community to make us fall for many fake narratives by fooling us into thinking we know everything, It's just a matter of seeing the huge amount of dysinfo in these places... my advice is to practice analyzing the theories from an evidence guided point of view, even if you can't find evidence for it yet, then don't despair since you can find it later, there might still be value in the theory itself. Personally I find this kind of practice kind of fun. I make mistakes
once in a while but after being here for some time, it gives me an adrenaline rush rather than make me feel bad.
We should also consider this skepticism when it comes to following political figures. Those who follow me know that I'm interested in Putin. When it comes to his actions, I think they make a lot of sense from a geopolitical point of view, but how can I truly be sure if he is a good guy? even if all his actions make sense he could still be doing it for his own sake. I'm not saying this is the case since he could be acting with good intentions, but historically even the most saint of people had their own shadow. So just how dark that side of his could be? is it grey, a darker shade of grey, or might as well be completely black? I gotta consider all of these possibilities. I think people should do the same when it comes to questioning who they should follow. Personally, if you take what I said into consideration, the idea of blindly following the red or blue or right and left divide becomes ridiculous don't you think?
Remember to have some healthy amount of skepticism towards everything...
