From elsewhere. In a blog slightly inappropriate for the subject:
Communism was a conspirational philosophy as is Islam or some wings there-of. Because of communisms endless intrigues, now fully documented history, the leftists made it the worst of all social faux pas(z) to ever mention a conspiracy not sanctioned by the left. So for example over the last few years the left were fine with Karl Rove or Vice-Presidential conspiracies.
What complicates this matter is that mental illness can indeed lead to an excessively conspirational outlook. So suspicions of this sort can carry a taint. Well its time to leave all this childish nonsense behind. Just because some fellow isn’t on your exact point on the conspirational spectrum this is no need to be disrespectful. Thats dancing to the leftists tune.
Many are overly conspirational because they fail to see that puny humans act strangely when massed together in the millions. What looks like a conspiracy can turn out to be mere networked biases. Or the advent of society accentuating certain tendencies.
Just for example; should anyone doubt that the congenitally stupid are now upwardly-mobile, they ought to repeat the following two phrases, three times each, out loud, with their eyes closed, click their heels three times, and open their eyes. Then perhaps they will be back in Kansas. Back in the real world.
The two phrases being:
“bottled water.” and “carbon sequestration.”
The upward-mobility of very stupid people can look like a conspiracy.
Or stupid pack-animals?
I think this sort of debate is healthy. I’d encourage normal humans to engage in such debates any extra-time they can find. But when the debating fades away it doesn’t really matter. Since whether it be conspiracy or stupidity or some appalling hell-marriage of both, in the final analysis IT DOESN’T MATTER.
Since we have to defeat them. go over, under and through them. Or get around them. To get done what needs to get done.
Now I really wanted to help people out by doing some heavy lifting with various net present value scenarios. But sadly I haven’t got around to it. With apologies to the blog owner and moderator I’ll try and do better from here on in.
