If ever you're bored and need a whimsical tale to tickle your conspiratorial clitoris, The Vigilant Citizen and its bevy of dramatic articles is more than enough to wet that whistle.
"Conspiratorial clitoris" sounds like a fucked up Harry Potter character.
Some of it ranges from prejudice to ridiculous. Its writers, namely Vigilant, have a hard time sounding authentic, as they color their articles with alarmist phrases and practice the same subtle psychological techniques that they themselves criticize the media for using. So they end up sounding like hobos on a soapbox the majority of the time.
AND SO WHEN I THREW THE BREADCRUMBS TO THE GROUND, AND PIGEONS FLOCKED TO IT, THAT'S WHEN I KNEW THE GOVERNMENT CREATED BIRD MAGNETS IN OUR WHOLE WHEAT!!!
Also they use puns. Puns. Fucking puns.
But when they aren't making jokes like an obnoxiously awkward white guy and reminding me of a pink-socked homeless man (We've all seen those socks on one, come on), Vigilant Citizen does find trends that are indeed happening in the media and are certainly a little odd.
Lately, they've been on this robotic trip, with about 2 of the last 4 articles focusing on a concept called "Transhumanism"; the most recent article (Which is also the largest block of words ever) solidifies their stance on the ideology.
Here's the quick, non-biased explanation of Transhumanism: it is the idea that we as humans can be made overall better by physically integrating ourselves with technology.
Vigilant Citizen and its articles paint the ideology as something that is "forced" onto us by the media, and is inherently evil as its intentions are to force us to think in a "hive mind", despite no one worth a shit having officially claimed anything of the sort.
See, like a hobo on a soapbox.
But what gives legitimacy to the site's latest theory is the fact that 4 major pop artists (The Black Eyed Peas, Rhianna, Beyonce, and soon Christina Aguilera) have been implementing robots/robotic imagery in their shit music lately. The Black Eyed Peas have dedicated an entire video in celebration of robots, Rhianna has been performing live with robots (Which also look very similar to BEP's set of robots), Beyonce's had a couple videos with automnomous figures, and Christina's upcoming album art has half of her face looking like a robot.
And now the word "robot" sounds really, really weird.
While I like to disassociate myself from the LSD-esque lunacy of the VC fanbase, I have to say that it is pretty weird when 4 of the biggest artists right now are sharing the same or very similar styles in their marketing/performances.
It isn't to suggest that the government is actually trying to turn us into robots.
And trying to squeeze us into little black shorts.
But with it happening at the same time and with several different artists crushes the assumption of mere coincidence; like a wise man once said, "Sets of coincidences are the premonitions of calculation".
Wise man pictured here.
So despite VC's occasional biases, ridiculous suggestions, and hobo tendencies, they've stumbled onto something pretty interesting here with transhumanism and cyborgs. If we see it more often, the hobos may actually have a point.
