Does anyone have any predictions about coming events or conspiracy theories you think will unfold in the next five or ten years?

I'm seriously starting to wonder if the Pope will be assassinated and it will start World War 3. Sort of the same way the Archduke Franz Ferdinand was killed. I just don't see it ending well for him.

Three years ago I would of said Obama was getting ready to throw people into the FEMA camps, lol. Conspiracy theories are very alluring.

Conspiracy theories aren't alluring forever :P

I would watch Unsolved Mysteries when I was a kid, until I got old enough to realize that my desire for these "mysteries" to be true (i.e., ghosts, aliens, etc.) was the only thing actually keeping me interested.

Corruption is a non-zero attribute of any political structure, but popularized myths are probably not an accurate measure of it.
Beliefs in a nutshell:
- The Ends never justify the Means.
- Objectivity is secondary to subjectivity.
- The War on Drugs is the worst policy in the U.S.
- Most people worship technology as a religion.
- Computers will never become sentient.

Why? If anything is predictable it would be that any major event which is perceived to be negative in some sense(such as a bombing, war or an assassination) would have a conspiracy theory related to the government or a group of people that control the world. The moment that event happens I can already visualize most (if not all) of the fucked-up theories of conspiracy theorists.

Same. And I don't watch them too often. But conspiracy theories are definitely a big thing. I just like knowing where my friends are at.

Are you asking me? If yes, then they are alluring because you start with a premise hoping to prove it right. This can be used for almost anything, like dogs control the world. There's no evidence of dogs ruling the world, but people could still argue the case.

How is this alluring? Because you can create proof. When you have control of the variables you can design the outcome.
