The Theory of Electronic Conspiracy

By August 1, 2016No Comments

1608-cyber-1We’ve all met our share of conspiracy theorists, right? People who insist that everything is part of a sinister plan to keep you ignorant of alien visitors or something. Some of these people come off as total loons, others… make a little more sense than we’d like to admit.

The so-called Theory of Electronic Conspiracy may or may not be a real threat, but it’s an interesting concept, all the same. Here’s how this scheme works:

The Basic Premise

The foundation of this theory is the belief that a New World Order-like secret society has been planning for centuries to achieve global domination, whether through uncontested control, or even global destruction. The plan goes back to well before modern technology existed even in theory, starting with…

  1. Paper Currency

    According to the theory, this began in the Renaissance, when the use of precious metal coins was phased out for paper money. This was just setting us up for…

  2. Virtual Currency

    This means credit cards. Money is no longer tangible and no longer tied to any metal standard, it’s an abstract number based entirely in magnetic strips.

  3. The Internet and eCommerce

    The market goes completely virtual in this phase. When you buy something, no money changes hands, nobody even meets face to face. You punch some passwords into the computer, and your new printer or a DVD of Point Break is delivered to your door a few days later.

  4. Consolidation of Banking Power

    This takes place through international banking fusions, putting a majority of the world’s money into only a few hands.

  5. The eID

    Electronic Identification Cards are the next step, replacing driver’s licenses, state-ID cards and so on with a global standard of credit-card-like ID’s.


    This is the big finish line for this group. A blackout on a planetary scale, like at the end of Escape from L.A. This will erase the data from every electronic account on the planet, resulting in chaos and poverty and a return to primitivism and slavery. Blackouts in the US, Canada, the UK and Australia following the September 11, 2001 attacks were mere test runs for the Big Show.

The trick with conspiracy theories like these is that you look at the first four steps and think “Holy cow, those all happened!” Of course, it’s a lot less impressive when you remember that this conspiracy theory didn’t come about until all four steps had already been achieved. Everyone’s Nostradamus when they only have to predict stuff that already happened.
