Genre: Political Fiction; Short Story
Four conspiracy theorists discuss and theorize about the contents on a mysterious disc recently picked up by the government.
This was an interesting read to say the least. I’m known to browse conspiracy theories just to see what people are coming up with. I like to sit and think about how easily different theories are to believe vs how possible it is that they (or something similar) is true. I suppose I can’t completely say that I don’t tend toward believing some conspiracies. So, ‘Doomsday Think Tank’ was thought-provoking and enjoyable.
Written sort of like a screen play, the reader sees a group of people discussing the contents on a disc the government has recently found and informed the public of. They jump from one theory to another, using reasoning to decide just how plausible their explanation is. They bring in multiple points from it being some sort of distraction to there actually being something of worth on the disc that the government was unable to hide the existence of for some reason.
It seems that the point of the story is meant to spark debate and question, not give much answer so keep that in mind when getting into it. If you like looking at different perspectives, picking apart theories, or perhaps you’re a conspiracy theorist yourself, give ‘Doomsday Think Tank’ a try. I think there is a lot to be said about the messages in this story.
