Conspiracy theories

As you proceed in your studies in survivalism and disaster readiness, you’ll no doubt run across any number of conspiracy theories online. Whether it concerns 9/11 or reptilians from Alpha Centauri impersonating politicians, the Internet has provided a platform from which proponents can make their opinions known.

I love reading about conspiracy theories, the more outlandish the better. But, I love them for their entertainment value and tend to take them with more than just a grain of salt. Heck, some of the theories out there require enough grains of salt to take care of NYC streets for an entire winter season!

When reading the various theories you find online and elsewhere, I highly suggest you use your head for something more than a hat rack. A little common sense will go a long way.

I’m not saying all conspiracy theories are bunk. Far from it, actually. History has shown any number of outlandish theories to actually be true. After all, the mysterious MK-ULTRA project, where US citizens were covertly given LSD and other drugs, was proven to have actually existed.

However, that doesn’t mean every theory put forth before or since is automatically true as well. Each one must be examined and evaluated on its own merits.

If you find yourself some night, long after you should have gone to bed, giving serious thought to your mind being probed by reptilian aliens, please have this site bookmarked:

Jim Cobb has been a student of survivalism and emergency preparedness for almost thirty years. As a young child, he drove his parents nuts with stockpiling supplies in the basement every time he heard there was a tornado watch in his area. Of course, being a child, those supplies consisted of his teddy bear, a few blankets and pillows, and random canned goods he grabbed from the kitchen cabinets. Later, he was the first (and likely only) child in his fifth grade class to have bought his very own copy of Life After Doomsday by Bruce Clayton. Today, he is a freelance writer whose work has been published in national magazines such as Boy’s Life and Complete Survivalist Magazine. He is a voracious reader with a keen interest in all stories with post-apocalyptic settings. He maintains the Library at the End of the World blog and is also the Content Director for He currently resides in a fortified bunker in the upper Midwest, accompanied by his lovely wife and their three adolescent Weapons of Mass Destruction. Jim's first book, Prepper's Home Defense, was published late 2012 and his second book, tentatively titled The Prepper's Complete Guide to Disaster Readiness, will be out in mid-2013, both coming from Ulysses Press.
