Freedom is the state of being free...

Greetings good citizen,

One of the quickest ways to get branded a whacko is to start pointing to a conspiracy…and, doubtless, there are a lot of ‘whackos’ out there who see a conspiracy behind pretty much anything and everything.

Society itself is a collection of organizations and what is a conspiracy but an organization that isn’t particularly ‘forthcoming’ about its agenda?

Which is not to say that all conspiracies hide what they are up to…

So what is it that makes a conspiracy a nefarious, underhanded collection of ‘likeminded individuals’?

At the end of the day we could call political parties conspiracies…(even if they merely conspire to defraud their members into believing ‘they’ are being ‘represented’.)

You get my point, life, as well as society, is full of conspiracies.

Everybody has an agenda and not everybody is forthcoming about what that agenda is.

The dividing line between ‘personal wish list’ and a conspiracy is collusion.

Once birds of a feather get together to work toward a mutually beneficial goal you have a full-blown conspiracy on your hands.

Again, not all conspiracies are ‘bad’.

But our experience tells us that most conspiracies don’t bode well for those not in on the, er, ‘secret’…

Yes, it’s the ‘underhanded’ part of a conspiracy, that hooray for me, fuck you aspect that makes us all uneasy when we suspect that others are ‘conspiring against us.’

If you let this sort of shit bother you, you will quickly become neurotic…but just because you’re paranoid does not mean they are not out to get you…

This is why it is astonishing that so many ‘serious minded’ people choose to ignore our obvious ‘social interdependence’ (most of us won’t take a piss alone) and quickly ‘pooh-pooh’ conspiracies.

Which lead us to an arena that is just bursting with mutually beneficial situations (that have long required legislative action to keep ‘in check’…until recently.)

The Marriage of Mercantilism and Corporatism: When Free Trade Is Not 'Free'

Something not commonly acknowledged by history teachers is the constant, er, struggle to prevent society crippling monopolies from strangling the world’s (alleged) democracies in their sleep.

What your teacher didn’t tell you (because nobody told them) is that this battle, democracy almost always loses.

There is only so much ‘market share’ and ‘competition’ is…er, counterproductive.

Repeatedly throughout history, competition has been ‘faked’. Avis may have ‘tried harder’ than Hertz but it didn’t matter because they were both owned by ITT.

Naturally, this is tangential to our current situation, a ‘conspiracy’ to, what’s the PC term for it…‘right size’ the ‘surplus population’ and to shrink the economy down to a ‘more sustainable’ size.

The single largest problem facing society since its inception is the ‘status quo’ who quite literally want to ‘freeze’ both time and progress at some imagined ‘ideal’ level.

Which is to point out that ‘leadership’ is a very misunderstood concept…

It is not leadership if your sole desire is to stay right where you are.

Yet this is ‘conservatism’, leadership that takes you to where you already are.

What these conservative morons don’t tell you is that you are marked for death.

To preserve their ‘perfect world’, you must die.

They don’t see the point in ‘wasting’ perfectly good resources on, er, expendable people.

But if you are part of the ‘reality based’ community, you don’t see this.

Nor will you see it…until it is too late to do anything about it.

Thanks for letting me inside your head,
