25 Things That "They" Don't Want You To Know

So who is “they”? Good question. Let’s preface this by saying that we are not Illuminati/UFO people. Not at all. But the fact remains that there is a “they” behind almost every purchase you make (unless it’s the local mom and pop store). There is a “they” behind many of the things you do. This “they” is not some unified one world order. Rather, it is representative of every crooked capitalist, politician, and average joe that tries to take advantage of you by playing on your ignorance. There doesn’t need to be any “conspiracy” for people to get tricked into buying things not needed or sign contracts that should not be signed. Think of this list as a series of life hacks and tips that will give you the upper hand in a number of situations. Remember, knowledge is power. When you take your car into the mechanic, if that mechanic is not a straight shooter he is going to try taking advantage of your ignorance. The only way to combat this is to at least know the basics. And if you get taken advantage of, let your friends know. Don’t let the tricksters get away with it. These are 25 things “they” don’t want you to know.
