In 2007 when YouTube was young and Charlie bit my finger was new there was a massive influx of conspiracy theory videos on YouTube, at the time much of these were based on the 911 attacks claiming an inside job and lets be honest some of the facts pointed out were interesting to say the least. America funded Al-Qaeda like they funded ISIS, we create the terrorists and then invade nations to fight them, making a good profit as we do it. As the years went by conspiracy theory videos evolved, by 201o/2011 many conspiracy videos were now focusing on the elite, hierarchies or the “Illuminati.” It was an interesting time, the “truth movement” was moving fast and the establishment were terrified. Fast Forward a few years to 2016 and the truth movement has slowed drastically in my opinion, its not that there is no information on YouTube its just that most of the information is questionable, pointless, manipulated and sometimes just blatant lies.
What is worse is they mix the truth in with these lies and due to this the lies sound believable, I sometimes have a listen to truthers like; The Vigilant Christian, Mark Dice and Alex Jones and much of what they say is right and I agree with 100% but sometimes its what they don’t tell us that gives them away. Mark Dice for example, I liked him and watched him regularly at one time and even now he exposes some real issues and peoples stupidity and ignorance very well, but he completely fails to point out the stupidity of the corporate media. He blames the people and he is within his right to blame the people, people are stupid, ignorant and easily manipulated, but he fails to point out that they are made stupid, ignorant and manipulated by the corporate media that promotes Mark Dice.
I also liked the Vigilant Christian at one stage, I liked his respectful way of telling people his information and ideas, but the more I listen to him and learn about him the less seriously I can take him. He claims YouTube are attacking him, censoring him and all sorts yet he admits he has made good money from YouTube (I have made nothing at all from YouTube.) I am not attacking TheVigilantChristian or Mario for being a success and I am not saying that everything he says is BULLSHIT but I believe he is either a very misguided individual or a very dangerous meat puppet. For example Mario claims that the Sinners Prayer is a Satanic Deception! Obviously the prayer is not biblical and simply saying a prayer and expecting forgiveness will NOT work, but sometimes just saying the prayer is repenting if you mean it, and Jesus tells us to repent so I very much doubt it is Satanic.
