  • Viewpoints to what end? or, I’ve seen enough conspiracy theories to choke a horse, cow, piglet and a salamander all in one shallow breath. I must be the most naive person on the blemished brow of the world.

    Conspire with me? With who? You. Conspire. Why? I don’t get it. One up on who? Pass who? Pull one over? What? Conspire - to kill for what? Why? For some hidden agenda? To violate what? To benefit what end?

    Conspire. I don’t understand conspire. FREEDOM I get.

    FASCISM? hummm fascism?
    possible ‘isms’: ultranationalism? ethnocentrism? chauvinism? militarism? imperialism? corporate fascism? propagandism? totalitarianism? authoritarianism? pulling strings, controlling and buying media, making inroads, making money, selling out, pass the buck, copping out, patenting nature

    I think I get it

    ‘Conspiracy’ is the new buzz word for (fill in the blank)________ (suggestions) lies? falsehoods? cast doubt? pull it off? change the topic? diffuse the fuse? greed? CONTROL of money? CONTROL of resources? CONTROL of life? CONTROL of death? the new normal? dirty tricks? (all of the above)

    You need lots and lots of money to fight money. You need to get into almost everybody’s coffers. How crazy is that?

    Throwing more money on bad money? Bad money on good money? What was that saying on the Great Seal of the United States?

    ANNUIT COEPTIS? translates to: He (or she) approves (or has approved) of the undertakings? NOVUS ORDO SECLORUM translates to “New Order of the Ages”.

    I guess the operative saying here is that I need to buy order to make order. If what I buy creates chaos, who needs it?

    How much is enough? How many lives is enough? How many wars is enough? How many lies is enough? How much greed is enough? How much money is enough? Is there ever enough?
