Currently you can go onto the Internet and find conspiracy theorists everywhere, it is amazing indeed. You can find links to Alien Abductions and secret Men in Black websites, which explain how the human race is being controlled and you are next! You can find old Cold War embellishments of covert secret NSA projects and stories of NAZI spies who joined the CIA. If you search you will find secret groups like the Illuminati, Skull and Bones and high-levels of the Masonic Right. Now you must know that many people who run these websites have entirely too much time on their hands and some suffer from borderline Schizophrenia. Some even suffer from worse bizarre disorders of the mind. Yet some of what you read maybe real, it would be less than 5% as the Intelligence Community often says. Recently I met such a Conspiracy Theorist at a coffee shop and he just kept talking and talking. So, I thought it was an interesting idea for a Movie Script, here is what he told me;
I am not a conspiracy theorist, although, I do believe that our CIA is working from outside the country in Canada and on Indian reservations now spying on Americans who maybe in cahoots with susceptibles or foreign nationals who may or may not be Al Queda. Some of these outside our nation working for the intelligent agencies might be attempting entrapment pretending to be bad guys calling a citizen they suspect is dirty, so that is an issue. Once the CIA contacts them from outside the country pretending to be Al Queda, well now they have a reason to use surveillance on a person and track them until they break some law.
When hearing this, I thought to my self that his scenario was plausible indeed, but highly unlikely. Yet his conspiracy theorist mind had come up with what appears to be a great concept for a video game scenario for the new Xbox 360, as it could be made around a story and seem very reality based they way he had described this. Which is indeed an Orwellian type scenario and would fit well in not only a video game, but perhaps a movie script or Sci Fi novel too, you see? If you are designing video games, writing Sci Fi Novels or making movie scripts you should listen to at least some of these conspiracy theorists every once in a while, just dont start believing them, you may catch what they have got? Think on this in 2006.
