I am a writer by nature so my imagination runs wild sometimes. I always tend to fabricate scanarios that have a measure of feasibility.
Check this one out:
According to the New World Order conspiracy theory the ideal population for the earth is only 500,000. Some think that there have been groups of people throughout history that have attempted to or have furthered an agenda to "depopulate" the earth.
This got me to thinking, who would these 500,000 "new world starter set" people be? Because I have background in a cult for so long I tend to look there for answers.
What if modern day cults are all run by a common entity? This entity uses the cults as "drone factories." When this entity's plan to kill all but 500,000 people on the planet they also leave all the cults alive as well.
Then they pick and choose the "pick of the litter" of all the cults, kill the rest. These "picks" would have proven themselves true drones because their "loyalties" have gone above and beyond what their cults expect of them.
Sorry, I think of crazy sh*t sometimes.
