Conspiracy Theories and Theorists

A Shiny New Conspiracy Theory

A new nut job conspiracy theory has hatched recently. Apparently the handful of Walmart stores that were closed unexpectedly are supposedly tied to a military operation called Jade Helm. The operation has something to do with declairing martial law by summer. Or the stores have plumbing issues that require closing up to make proper repairs. You know, one or the other.

Pre-internet Underground Book Distribution


Original ad here.

Gather around, children, and you shall learn of an ancient time, before the internet. A day of paper fanzines and weird information obtained only via books delivered by snailmail.

The main purveyor of such good stuff was the Loompanics catalog. Alas, they were driven out of business in 2006. The current website using their domain name is a shell and a scam by cybersquatters.

Over one hundred Loompanics books have been tagged as a Goodreads collection. You can get a small sense of what they were all about there.

William Luther Pierce and Cosmotheism


I'll bet nearly every WU-vie is aware of the infamous racist novel The Turner Diaries. But were you aware that author William Luther Pierce also invented his own religion to accompany his propaganda?

"Cosmotheism is a scientific-racial-spirituality based religion, a convergence of meditation, White separatist ideologies, cosmic evolutionary theory and transhumanism thought. "

Worst Art-house Movie Ever?

The site where I found this clip explains:

"The now-infamous 'cup and sea' sequence from director Turge Babonet's 1968 film, THE HORRIBLE HORROR -- which prompted writer Cleveland Amory (TV Guide. May 12, 1968) to comment on the state of European cinema, 'You have to be on LSD to understand it'. Babonet's Dutch-language drama was ambitiously rescored and subtitled for US distribution, but its story of tragically depressed cod fishermen held no appeal for American audiences."

However, many folks believe Turge is a hoax.

Look at this purported list of Turge's films, and tell me what you think.
