Crisis actors (may include infants)The upside of residing in a country where pundits and politicians are currently exercised with a 'Change-the-Flag' national-nonentity mocktroversy is that we have no False-Flag operations, all flags being equally fictitious. Thus we are spared the unseemly phenomenon of Alex Jones wannabees procrustenating every disaster and mass murder into their narrative of "Stage-managed spectacle, scripted by the dramaturges and puppet-masters of the reality studio and performed by

It has come to our attention, however, here at the Riddled Research Laboratory and Sheepdip Mixing Dispensary, that other countries have more than their fair share of dot-connecting, pattern-matching, Sheeple-waking histrionic griefers collectively calling themselves Truthers. Variously convinced that the Fall of the Towers was faked, and that the last seven years of the Obama presidency has been a mass hallucination or an illegitimate time-line, which will retrospectively never have happened as soon as the true birth certificate comes to light. Also chemtrails, and Lyme disease, and Red Pills.
over-consumption of whacky-baccy contributes to the determination that Truthers bring to their deconstruction of every headline. Our own working hypothesis is that this is Neo-Gnosticism -- a revival or continuation of an intellectual tradition that began in the late-Hellenistic Levantine cultural arena, and continued into Roman Mithraism. People mashed up Greek initiation-mystery cults and Kabbalah (with a generous helping of Hindu/Buddhist notions about Samsara and the Veil of Maya)... concluding that there is an ultimate reality, and a cheap no-frills own- brand reality cobbled together by an inept and derivative Demiurge; and that we have been duped into occupying (or thinking we occupy) the imitation. Philip K. Dick was well-versed in this style of thinking, although he had the excuse of access to fine pharmaceuticals.
Our other, not-so-working hypothesis -- on vacation, easing gently into retirement -- is that there is money to be made here. Hence the Riddled Truther Cruise* -- a cafeteria of conspiracy, an all-you-can-eat buffet of belief. Passengers will be introduced to the literature and cinematography of fabricated realities, and there will be writing workshops, on the theory that they are basically trying to write science-fiction scenarios, so they might as well learn to do it properly.

Actual conditions not quite so attractive
The entertainment program so far includes
13th Floor..... World on a Wire..... The Congress
They Live..... Night Watch..... Men in Black.... Island
Dark City..... Matrix..... ExistenZ
Inception..... Vanilla Sky, Open your Eyes
Truman Show..... Adjustment Bureau..... Capricorn 1
Wayward Pines..... Man in the High CastleI do not count that whole Death-dream genre from Carnival of Souls on through Jacob's Ladder where the protagonist is dead but reluctant to come to terms with the new dispensation. Nor that 1970s fashion for paranoia movies like Parallax View where the brainwashing conspiracy is content with pulling the strings from behind the scenes but is not creating those scenes and substituting its stage-management for reality. The President's Analyst is a borderline case. Reader contributions are welcome but the judges' decision is final and no correspondence will be entered into for any bribe less than $80.
---------------------------* COMPLETELY NOT INSPIRED by the Conspira-Sea Cruise around the Mexican Riviera, as reported at Respectful Insolence. Conspiracy-curious passengers can become part of the captive audience for impresarios of paranoia, presenting a smorgasbord of alternative realities -- all equally valid, all equally plausible, and all for the purpose of ludic entertainment.
