陰謀論の出番

 
東日本大震災の時も、米国の地震兵器の仕業という話がでました。マララさんの襲撃もCIAの自作自演説もあるようです。このように考えると、エボラが米国の仕業とする話が出るのも想定内と言えるのかもしれません。



動画で触れていたのは以下です。他のもNew World Orderというものもあるようです。

The New World Order Bio War

日曜日のニューヨークタイムズがエボラに関する陰謀論を整理してくれています。エボラは米国で製造され、エボラウイルスの特許を取得済みだという説はアフリカ発ですが、米国内部でもいろいろな説がでているようです。人口を減らすために故意に広めているなんて説もあるんですね。

The Ebola Conspiracy Theories
By ALAN FEUEROCT. 18, 2014

THE spread of Ebola from western Africa to suburban Texas has brought with it another strain of contagion: conspiracy theories.

The outbreak began in September, when The Daily Observer, a Liberian newspaper, published an article alleging that the virus was not what it seemed — a medical disaster — but rather a bioweapon designed by the United States military to depopulate the planet. Not long after, accusations appeared online contending that the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention had patented the virus and was poised to make a fortune from a new vaccine it had created with the pharmaceutical industry. There were even reports that the New World Order, that classic conspiracy bugbear involving global elites, had engineered Ebola in order to impose quarantines, travel bans and eventually martial law.

米国でこのような陰謀説が広まりやすい一因として、最近取り上げている政治不信がありそうです。

It’s not surprising that populist and anti-government conspiracies are rampant at a moment when opinion polls suggest that our trust in government has reached a record low. In fact, most theories pit those who perceive themselves as powerless against a dominant cabal of secretive elites.

That model certainly seems to fit the allegation that the Department of Defense created Ebola in a military lab to loose on the world as a Malthusian device to reduce the population. “Conspiracies against the powerless tend to be effective because the masses often feel that way,” James F. Broderick, an English professor at New Jersey City University and co-author of “Web of Conspiracy: A Guide to Conspiracy Theory Sites on the Internet,” said. “They reflect and reinforce the idea that ordinary citizens are victims of the government.”



はたから見ると陰謀説はちゃんちゃらおかしいのですが、東日本大震災の時を振り返ってみると陰謀説の方が魅力的にうつってしまうこともあることは理解できます。
