One-Third of Americans Believe In World Domination Conspiracy
According to a new survey, about one-third of Americans worry that some secretive organization is working behind the scenes in an effort to take over the world. As one would expect, they won’t be doing it with flower power or positive persuasion; they’ll be doing it with an authoritarian government. Allegedly, of course.
And the New World Order conspiracy is just one of many a surprising number of Americans believe, although few represent the majority. For example, three in ten U.S. citizens believe that aliens exist, about the rate of the NWO conspiracy.
When it came to older, high-profile conspiracies like the JFK assassination, Americans pretty much convinced of foul play. More than 50% think JFK was a victim of something deeper…
When it came to more far-fetched conspiracies like “the moon landing was a hoax” or “shape-shifting iguanas rule the world,” people were more skeptical. Only seven out of every 100 believe the moon landings were a Stanley Kubrick production, and only four out of every 100 think Reptilians walk among us.
Here’s a rundown of the conspiracies, and how many people believe in them. Which ones do you side with?
37 percent believe global warming is a hoax
25 percent believe Obama is the antichrist, or could be
15 percent suspect Big Pharma is in cahoots with the medical industry to create new, profitable illnesses
15 percent are sure we’re being mind-controlled through television
14 percent believe Bigfoot or Sasquatch are more than legends
14 percent think the CIA helped distribute crack into the inner cities during the ‘80s
9 percent agree that America’s tap water is spiked with fluoride by the government
