    Default ‘Conspirituality’ — the overlap between the New Age and conspiracy beliefs

    Been spending waaay too much time following conspiracy types on Twitter, I dont bother engaging or trolling. The Q-berts are some crazy shit for sure.

    But something that has been apparent for a long time, even before the lastest slew of bat shit crazy, has been link between the magical thinking of the 'we are all shifting into the next evolutionary stage of enlightment' types & the 'OMG they're going to round up & tag us!!!' types.

    So it was nice to come across this article by Jules Evans


    ‘Conspirituality’ — the overlap between the New Age and conspiracy beliefs

    ..a rapidly growing web movement expressing an ideology fuelled by political disillusionment and the popularity of alternative worldviews. It has international celebrities, bestsellers, radio and TV stations. It offers a broad politico-spiritual philosophy based on two core convictions, the first traditional to conspiracy theory, the second rooted in the New Age: 1) a secret group covertly controls, or is trying to control, the political and social order, and 2) humanity is undergoing a ‘paradigm shift’ in consciousness. Proponents believe that the best strategy for dealing with the threat of a totalitarian ‘new world order’ is to act in accordance with an awakened ‘new paradigm’ worldview.

    clumsy propaganda designed to associate all questioning of official state narratives with mental illness.

    I'm not worried about 5G. The key to discrediting sane observations about state and big corporate malpractice or bad intent is to mix them in with obvious nonsense (crystal energy fields, reptoids etc..) to discredit them.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/North_..._abuse_scandal
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jimmy_Savile
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rolf_Harris

    If Jimmy Saville and Rolf had been just a tiny bit more politically powerful then there would still be a mass media campaign aimed at smearing their accusers and dismissing anybody who believed them as cranks. Look how long Jimmy got away with it, with the craven connivance of BBC employees who knew exactly what the score was but were more worried about not being able to make their next mortgage payment than defending children from rape.

    I'm very sure stuff like this is going on still, in an organised way, amongst politically influential people.

    Deep down you know Prince Andrew is a nonce, at the very least. Right?

    Yeah.

    I think the main thrust of the article was about the similarities in magical thinking between new age dolphin shaggers & reptiles are eating our babies types. There certainly seems to be a convergence of these 2 streams at the moment.

    It's always been there I think. It's just a natural meeting up of people who feel like 'outsiders' to the modern professional-class consensus of materialism and faith in paper credentials.

    What the author is trying to do is defend their sense of stability and childhood trust in respectable authority figures from attack. Like the way Peter Hitchens wants the 1950s back, but from a centre-left post-60s perspective.

    I definitely see more of a merging of the 2 in recet years with friends & access to the internet.

    More people sharing stuff that even 2 years ago they would have considered far right conspiracy but now it has a new agey gloss they share with abandon.

    I would prefer that new agey crystal shit destroy the Abrahamic religions versus the other way around.

    maybe the best way they could do that would be a merger

    I once went to the Isle of Skye (fairly remote scottish island) and saw a weird shack advertising 'christian yoga'.

    Fairly sure I smelled weed too.
