JLB Member Discord | Open House #02 | Skeptic or Cynic? (23-Sep-2018)

What is the difference between 'skepticism' and 'cynicism'? Is it really worth being skeptical all of the time? What is 'government' in theory and practice? How many of us would actually want to rule the world if we could? Who were the 'Uplifters' and what do they have to do with 9/11?

Welcome to Johnlebon.com

This website has grown and changed over the past two years. This is true of both the content and the user base.

So I decided to get the opinions of some of the OG crew: people who were here back when this place was an empty mud-hut compared to what we see now.

I asked them: where should new members begin, when trying to make their way through the archive of older material?

The ‘Hundredth Monkey’ Myth

If you want an example of how gullible the average person today really is, look no further than the case of the 'Hundredth Monkey Effect' (HME): an amusing myth believed and perpetuated to this day by conspiratard and normie alike.

A proper analysis of the HME myth yields important insights into how and why the typical human today believes the nonsense he does.

Put simply: people want to believe, people are searching for answers, people like stories, and people love to believe in stories which they think give them answers.

Couple this with the fact that modern schooling does not teach basic logic or research methodology and it is no surprise that people still believe in HME in 2017.

It is also no surprise that prominent voices within the 'alternative'/'truth'/'conspiracy' (ACT) scene actively promote the myth - that they do so (and get away with it) proves yet again that the entire 'truth movement' is a joke.
