Time moves fast, and things keep happening at an equal rate. Consider the last century. We came on the verge of destroying a world twice, saving it ourselves only by a close margin, landed ourselves on the moon and made exponential progress in every sector. But some, in fact, most, of these things didn’t happen in front of our eyes. It was our government that kept us informed of it. Considering how they mess things up from time to time, it’s no wonder that people don’t trust these people, sitting in high places (where we’ve sent them, by the way), and fabricating all sorts of stories to keep us quiet, to stop us from inquiring further. Such activities only elevate distrust in the public, and this is what gives rise to conspiracy theorists.
Picking up on smallest glitches on the stories propagated by the government, conspiracy theorists try to uncover the truth. If you too have felt a shred of doubt on an event otherwise cleared by the authority figures, if you wonder about the loopholes in their stories, then Netflix has something to engage you. Here’s the list of really good conspiracy theory documentaries on Netflix that are available to stream right now. The list also includes 911 conspiracy documentaries on Netflix.
10. Conspiracy Theory: Did We Land on the Moon? (2001)
People do all sorts of things to win an argument. There are some who even edit the Wikipedia pages to prove that they aren’t wrong, even when they really are! The lengths we go to maintain our pride! Did America do something like this to maintain its own? The Cold War between America and the Soviet Union was a very heated period. Both the countries wanted to outdo each other in not only the arms race but other significant sectors as well. This soon spawned the Space Race. Russia sent the first man to space, sent the first unmanned mission to Moon, and for the time being, it looked like they had won it. And then, President Kennedy declared that by the end of the decade, i.e., before the year hits the 70s mark, America would have sent man to the Moon. And it finally happened in 1969. Looks like someone came close to missing the deadline! But then, did they actually do it? Or was it done to save America’s integrity?
9. Inside the Freemasons (2017)
Apart from the lies propagated by the government, it is the topic of secret societies that grips the imagination of conspiracy theorists the most. In fact, most of the times, they come to the conclusion that the government we see is just a façade and the actual strings are being pulled by these secret societies. Whether it’s true or not is hard to fathom because we often know next to nothing about their societies. (Hence, putting the “secret” in them!) Freemasons are one such society. Tracing its roots back to medieval times, this society has been associated with a lot of things in history. This documentary gives you a chance to get a never before allowed access to the initiation ceremony of Freemasons. Will it be something out of ‘Eyes Wide Shut’ or will it be some usual boring stuff. Find out for yourself!
