Proofs of a Conspiracy ?

Question: "Would you ever think it was possible for the current situation in the middle east to have been manufactured by Western interests with the agenda of stabilizing that region so as to make the area's oil industry conducive to the expansion of global capitalism and eradication, by what ever means, of a local culture that rejects Western influence?

Answer: "No."

Question: "Does the increased security of the state which has begun infringing upon civil liberties, or at least threatens to do so, disturb you in light of members in the current president's cabinet calling fascism a good thing?"

Answer: "No."

Question: "Okay, PNAC, Project for a New American Century, hosting among its members, Donald Rumsfield and Dick Cheney, insists the only way to assure the continuance of American power in the new century is to engage in war in the middle east, capitalize on their oil reserves, and strengthen our military, as well as quell some civil liberties, does that bother you? Does that ring off any bells?"

Answer: "No."

Question: "What about UFOs?"

Answer: "huh?"

Question: "Bigfoot?"

Answer: "what!?"

Question: "Have you ever touched a monkey!?"

Answer: "..."

Scratch the bit about touching a monkey, and you've got the average direction of any conversation involving conspiracy theory. It seems, to many an American mind, that conspiracy belongs to the realm of fiction and the walls of a lunatic asylum. Admittedly, sometimes when I listen to Alex Jones, I tend to think both, though, for the most part we can find intelligent, though not quite so shocking, exposes on conspiracy theory in the United States.

Today, I will not delve into that particular area. Rather, I am going to attempt the initial stages of a binnallofamerica original expose on conspiracy theory, as such, this is our introduction, our way of getting things started and out in the open.

By and large, when one discussing conspiracy theory in the Untied States, one finds two predominant types. One type, the skeptic, believes it all to be bunk. The other type, the fanatic, believes in most every conspiracy you offer, melding them into this super unsaid conspiracy theory. Yet, you bring the possibility of conspiracy to any other nationality, especially the Europeans, and you ought to receive measured response. "Of course there's conspiracy, history is founded upon the machinations of individuals and alliances."

Do I believe in this unknown super elite made up of about ten people who secretly control the world? No. Do I believe in anything written by David Icke? You've got to be kidding. Do I believe in conspiracy? Well, history, it seems, would say conspiracy is the norm so far as goes human society, accidents and re-actions being the exception; there has always been "power behind the throne."

So, we are going to undertake this little experiment beginning next week and see where it leads us. Hopefully, we won't fall flat. At the very least, this should be an entertaining little romp. Until then, I bid you come back.

Your Fellow Traveler,
