Conspiracy Theory Generator

What follows are two conspiracy theory generators. They are instructional devices used to explore how conspiracism as a genre is a structured combination of a stylistic meta-frame of tragic apocalyptic dualism merged with narratives built around the components of demonization and scapgoating.

While some of the resulting stories may be absurd (and offensive), often the result (or a very similar result) can be found in texts on contemporary internet websites. The conspiracy theory generators may appear on the surface as overly glib for the subject matter, but they are meant to illustrate that there is a paradigm, framework, or architecture to conspiracy theories.

Note: Your computer must accept running a small Java script for the wording to change. Sometimes there is a small box about protecting security and requesting permission to run "active content" near the top of this screen.


What's Really Going On?

The original opening text on the narrative below reflects the basic allegations in the hoax document, the Protocols of the Elders of Zion.

Classic Antisemites: Protocols of Zion

by Anti-Masonic Conspiracists
by Christian Right Conspiracists
by the Lyndon LaRouche Network

In order to understand the world today you need to realize that everything is controlled by a conspiracy made up of Jews.

The conspirators are crafty and their conspiracy began in ancient Babylon with the Rabbis.

The conspirators have been responsible for many events throughout history, including The French Revolution.

Today, members of the conspiracy are everywhere. They can be identified only by their membership in the Learned Elders of Zion.

The conspirators have help from powerful elite Freemasons, and the conspiracy benefits undeserving sinful parasites; at the expense of Russian Orthodox Christians.

The conspirators want to oppress all God-Fearing Christians, and round up and restrain resisters in the Jewish Ghetto. They are using subversive agents to establish the reign of the Antichrist.

In order to prepare for this, we all must attack them before they attack us. All of this was revealed years ago in The Protocols of the Elders of Zion. Since the media is controlled by Jewish writers you should get your information only from Czarist loyalists.

Democracy is a process,
not a specific set of institutions

Democracy is a process that assumes
the majority of people, over time,
given enough accurate information,
the ability to participate
in a free and open public debate,
and can vote without intimidation,
reach constructive decisions
that benefit the whole of society, and
preserve liberty,
protect our freedoms,
extend equality, and
defend democracy.
