Let’s clear the air

.

a bit with a few DEFINITIONS

.

FIRST: ANY ARGUMENT CAN BE DISMISSED

with the words “Oh, you’re just a Conspiracy Theorist!” (meaning fruitcake, nutter, irrational; and that any sane person—like the rest of us*—will laugh your points out of court by treating them with the contempt they deserve). Not good.

FOR MYSELF

Yes, I do hold the ‘Conspiracy Theory’ in respect. I simply don’t understand how people can do otherwise, given the record of history; to dismiss the possibility of CT is to ignore history and I try not to ignore history. You cannot safely ignore history, every act in the past helped build your present—

Those who cannot remember the past

are condemned to repeat it—Santayana

—and is indicative of what is happening in your world right now. Are you different, is your epoch somehow … unique? I say not.

THERE IS NO CONSPIRACY

by which I mean there is no one conspiracy—no single all-encompassing overarching conspiracy, no hidden cabal of the Elite of the Elite sitting in a smoke-filled room somewhere pulling strings reaching into all corners of their empire. Not in my purview, anyway. But—

THERE ARE MANY

conspiracies. All over the world, in every Hall Of Power, Parliament, Senate, in every Bank, in every Brotherhood, in every scout group, in every Lodge, in every political party, Church, religion, cult, sect, sorority, officer corps, team, union …

THE DIFFERENCE BEING

purely of scale, reach, and degree of secrecy. To deny that there were, always have been, are, and always shall be Conspiracies is to reveal a blissful ignorance and a totally misplaced naive trust in the universal goodness of Man.

QUESTIONs, PLEASE

  • Why do we forgive the past, instead of invoking it to explain the present and protect the future? Our future?
  • Why do we never hold the ‘movers and shakers’ responsible for the harm they do?
  • Why do we allow ourselves to be fobbed off with pap?
  • Why can we not take rational stock,
  • and analyse objectively,
  • down to the Root Cause(s),
  • and act to protect our own interests?

CONSPIRACY BY DEFINITION

involves secrecy. Simplistically then:

no secrecy = no conspiracy

So this will be the angle of my next post. Be warned, it may not be what you’d expect.

YOUR CALL

* That ‘us’ is very important. Why?
