If anyone need more fodder to your dystopian view of the future, watch this:

I also recommend "Mirage men". A documentary about UFO myths being created by government to cloud the real thing, namely experiments with advanced technology/weapons. Anyone who saw weird lights behaving in a strange way in the eighties might have witnessed what we today know as drones.

 As per my previous statement that conspiracies are unnecessary when punishment is lax to nonexistent:

The Financial Crisis: Why Have No High-Level Executives Been Prosecuted?

Quote
If it was the former—if the recession was due, at worst, to a lack of caution—then the criminal law has no role to play in the aftermath. For in all but a few circumstances (not here relevant), the fierce and fiery weapon called criminal prosecution is directed at intentional misconduct, and nothing less. If the Great Recession was in no part the handiwork of intentionally fraudulent practices by high-level executives, then to prosecute such executives criminally would be “scapegoating” of the most shallow and despicable kind.

But if, by contrast, the Great Recession was in material part the product of intentional fraud, the failure to prosecute those responsible must be judged one of the more egregious failures of the criminal justice system in many years. Indeed, it would stand in striking contrast to the increased success that federal prosecutors have had over the past fifty years or so in bringing to justice even the highest-level figures who orchestrated mammoth frauds. Thus, in the 1970s, in the aftermath of the “junk bond” bubble that, in many ways, was a precursor of the more recent bubble in mortgage-backed securities, the progenitors of the fraud were all successfully prosecuted, right up to Michael Milken.

Again, in the 1980s, the so-called savings-and-loan crisis, which again had some eerie parallels to more recent events, resulted in the successful criminal prosecution of more than eight hundred individuals, right up to Charles Keating. And again, the widespread accounting frauds of the 1990s, most vividly represented by Enron and WorldCom, led directly to the successful prosecution of such previously respected CEOs as Jeffrey Skilling and Bernie Ebbers.

Anything done by establishment (career) politicians of either party is a conspiracy, by those in power to maintain power.  And the only people who want to seriously change the status quo in Washington DC, the Tea Party are reviled as the vilest forms of life in this country, somewhere between a KKK member and Satan himself, by members of the media and anyone dumb enough to believe the very biased news on CNN OR FOX. 


I dont look to silly novels for my conspiracy theories.  If you have half a brain and you follow politics, its easy to see whats going on right here in the real world.

I wouldn't say I "believe" in conspiracies - if I were aware of them, then they didn't do a good job of obfuscation as I'm not privy to any inside info on anything. That all said, I find it more fun to think in terms of conspiracy, so I enjoy hearing about them.

Conspirary is kind of a spectrum. On one end you've most likely true stuff like the US knowing Saddam didn't have any weapons of mass destruction and basically making up shit all along, then you start going into new-age-tinfoil territory with stuff like "big pharma has the cure for cancer but won't release it because le m0niez" and on the deep end you've got full-retard stuff like "Reptilians are putting fluoride in the water in order to calcify our pineal glands and prevent us from spiritual awakening"

interesting article, Madness. thanks for sharing.
"And I renounce..." He trailed, warred with errant pas­sions. "I renounce my wife."
His eyes fell upon Esmenet, stricken upon the floor. My wife!
"Noooo," she wept and whispered. "Pleaaase, Akka..."
"As an adulteress," he continued, his voice cracking, "and a... a..."
His face a mask of nimil, he turned without leave, began walking back the way he came. The Men of the Tusk stared at him dumbstruck

I am too shocked.  :o
