I personally love a conspiracy theory. I don’t believe the Titanic sank, I don’t believe the Americans landed on the moon. I believe FEMA camps exist and I believe Bill Gates is trying to develop a vaccine that will make billions of women infertile. I believe that Prince Phillip wants to come back as a virus to wipe out most of the population of earth. I love being a conspiracy theorist because it raises fascinating discussion that are endless, with people on opposing sides of the spectrum fighting over something that neither can ever win. Best of all, the conspiracy theorists can always win the argument, because for every piece of evidence that is provided to disprove a conspiracy theory, you can say “well, they are bound to say that aren’t they?” It still isn’t determined exactly who “they” are, but generally things such as governments and bankers come to mind. I don’t personally believe in the Illuminati but the New World Order is something that makes me seriously raise my eyebrows.
The Virus Protection Conspiracy
Anyway, I have given you quite a number of conspiracy theories here that you can debate at your next dinner party and feel free to take your pick out of any of them. But what does this have to do with internet security? Now, I personally believe that this is one big conspiracy theory too. I will first give you the background of my theory, before presenting you with what I class as pretty suspicious evidence. It’s up to you to decide whether or not you believe this particular conspiracy, but if you counter my arguments, I can always say that you were bound to say that.
Now, we all know that we have to keep our computers safe. We have to hide all our personal details, refrain from ever clicking on any links, have different passwords that contain capitals, numbers and symbols and so on. Worst of all, we can’t write these passwords down, because our paper trails are as damaging as our online signatures, so we also have to have the memory of an elephant. But what if, wait for it, what if internet security isn’t as crummy as we are led to believe? What if it is actually “they” who want our details and we willingly pass them on to “them” by registering for virus protection software?
The evidence is reasonably strong. If you own a virus protection package, you will know how many details you need to fill in. Name, address, date of birth and some financial details to pay for your registration. Now, did you know that one of the main virus protection software programmers is one of the most valuable companies in the world? In 2011, this company had a profit of $1.1 billion dollars. Allegedly, they kept “only” $150 million of this. That is some serious money, more than you think they would make by selling software packages right? Considering I firmly believe the rich control the world, it is reasonable to assume that virus protection companies are part of this world control
One thing that must be kept in mind is that computer viruses are real and identity theft is real. Whether you believe in the big conspiracy or not, unless you decide to go completely offline, you will need to be protected against all these malicious viruses and McAfee internet security is one of the best you can get. It’s clearly a catch 22 situation.
