The Conference Con

When we look for authentic conspiracy theory research, it should be a warning sign to see coordinated groups perform together in conference settings as even single genuine conspiracy researchers are such a rare commodity. When groups of conspiracy theorists convene together it is therefore highly unlikely we deal with any form of genuine individuals, rather the contrary. It is deception performed live by the intelligence community.

As derived from the nature of the ‘Conspiracy Conspiracy’, any alternative researcher that contend to be legitimate will constitute very isolated cases and thus nourish only few relationships with the general conspiracy scene that is almost completely covered by intelligence agents and organisations (article).

Conspiracy conferences is therefore a very unnatural setting for anyone genuine just as it is unlikely that intelligence would promote anyone that do not dance to the tune of the disinformation that will be served in a public venue such as a conference or “con” as the professional humorously would qualify such events. It is of course the public that is conned, adding to the dupers delight of the professional performers and event organisers and handlers.

There are a multitude of thematic conferences that all make an effort to appeal to the conspiracy theory public. Many if not most of these intelligence trade shows promote material that any advanced conspiracy theorists will consider outdated, misinformed or plainly deceptive. Invested amateur researchers would therefore mostly choose to spend their time elsewhere than in following a host of speakers on stage presenting bad conspiracy material on outdated topics.

However if we do take interest in deception, then public gatherings such as conventions and conferences are highly instructive as they allow us a rare opportunity to see who the mediated intelligence operators are, how they articulate their discourse and how they interact between each other and towards the public.

All the conferences listed below have numerous speakers and often multiple editions (Mufon Symposium goes back to 1975) – all part of the not-so-selective club of intelligence operatives who appear to be more than plentiful when we analyse the PsyOp nature of Conspiracy Culture as a movement.

The number of conventions, presentations, expositions, symposium and conferences is considerable and more extensive than the list above can illustrate. Nevertheless it should be clear that Conspiracy Culture is not grassroots nor accidental but rather a refined, structured and well financed intelligence operation.

It is the scale of the operation that might mislead most as we are used to the preformatted delivery and appearance of the many conspiracy theorist who parade the scenes and stands of conspiracy conferences. It is clearly a “con” and a very visible manifestation of what the intelligence community really looks like.
