Conspire—“To act or work together towards the same goal or result.” Literally, to breathe the same air.
Theory—“A proposed explanation whose status is still conjecture.”
I don’t know how we got to the point in America where words became meaningless. We have permitted the hi-jacking of the English language. Our schools no longer teach language, and especially the origin of words. Pop culture has become the new thesaurus to the point that dictionaries have become obsolete.
Today, in America, words mean only what others tell us that they mean. It is the fruit of political correctness. Take time to read my previous commentary Change the words, Change the world. It will help you understand.
Conspiracies are as old as man. In fact, they predate man. It was a conspiracy in Heaven that led to the present mess we currently have in this world.
No wait…they go back even farther than that…And God said, LET US make man in our image…the Triumvirate God conspired to execute the plan. Working together is a good thing.
“Where no counsel is, the people fall: but in the multitude of counsellors there is safety.” That sounds like conspiring to me….
Thank God for conspiracies. Aren’t you grateful that:
• Jesus conspired with His disciples
• That the Founding Fathers conspired to form this nation.
• That the Wright brothers conspired against gravity.
• That Thomas Edison conspired against darkness.
• That Science conspired against diseases.
They were probably all ridiculed in their day. I am sure that Louis Pasteur was laughed at when he came up with the theory of the existence of germs. I bet all of the “journals of blood-letting” peer-reviewed his work and declared him to be a kook. Eighteen-sixty wasn’t that long ago, you know? I wonder what Pasteur would think about Global Warming?
All conspiracies begin as a theory. It is the sharing and discussion of the theory that makes it a conspiracy. When science does it, it is called experimentation, historians call it research, the media calls it investigative journalism, but when everyday citizens ask questions they are called kooks.
Look, all conspiracies begin as theories, ideas. It is the sharing of, the discussion about, and the research related to it that creates a conspiracy. It was a theory about life on the moon that launched the conspiracy known as the Apollo Project.
James Naismith had a theory about exercise and entertainment. He hung a peach basket on the wall and men have conspired ever since to improve basketball.
In its purest sense, a
conspiracy is an organized, shared, search for truth. The
“conspiracy” about the murder of John Kennedy is nothing more
than a search for truth. In today’s culture anyone who questions
the veracity of anything involving the government is labeled a
That is an oxymoron because a conspiracy requires a theory.
Didn’t the Warren Commission come up with a “magic bullet theory”? How come anyone who questions that theory is a “conspiracy wacko?” The origin of man is still nothing more than a theory known as macro-evolution. Why aren’t those who support this fairy tale called “evolutionary conspiracy" theorists? Why are Bible-believers the ones called kooks?
Is it just me, or does it seem as if in America, anyone who questions established government dogma, or established scientific theory, becomes the target of ridicule by establishment forces?
But that is a conspiracy too, is it not? The media, I am referring to. Wasn’t it the media that told us Oswald acted alone, Global warming was real, no one had pre-warning of the attack on Pearl Harbor, that religion had no place in the public discourse, and that Obama would save America?
See, that is the problem in this nation. The American people have been persuaded not to question establishment “experts”. Only “wackos” don’t follow the company line. Perhaps I am wrong, but isn’t a football huddle a conspiracy?
“Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon. It is almost impossible to counterattack ridicule. Also, it infuriates the opposition, who then react to your advantage.” -Saul Alinsky
Let me go on record as a proud conspiracy theorist. I think for myself, I research what I don’t know, I reach out to others who might be able to help me discover the truth, and I fight to expose what I know to others. Wouldn’t our schools be better if we taught our children to do the same?
The battle in the world has never changed. It is a battle for truth as spelled out in Genesis 3. “And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel” The two sides are still conspiring to win the battle for truth.
I’ve rambled enough. Let me cut to the chase.
Do you believe anything the government tells you? Can you give me a good reason why we should? Wasn’t it the head of the government (Reagan) himself who exhorted us to “trust but verify.” The “government” is full of goons and scallywags who are hell-bent on protecting their own asses. Liars lie. It is their nature. As George Orwell so adequately coined it “During times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act."
Now the “government class” is screaming over the release of the documents by Wikileaks. They warn us that it will put our troops in danger, that the leaks will harm foreign policy, that we will lose the trust of many of our allies.
Really? As a poker-playing friend of mine once warned me “There is no honor among thieves.” Government is a den of thieves. They are only upset that they have been exposed for what they are.
“We the people” have lost our government. That is not a conspiracy theory, it is a conspiracy fact. The group of liars on the Potomac are representatives of a different kingdom. They merely steal our money to advance their sinister agenda.
“I did not have sex with that woman… Social security is safe and funded into the next generation…Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction…Man is destroying the environment…We have seen the birth certificate…The Federal Reserve knows what they are doing…Zionism is a lie…The Towers fell on their own…The dollar is stable…There is no inflation…The banks are safe…Goldman Sachs has your best interests at heart…Obama is not a Muslim…Porn scanners at the airport keep us safe…We can spend our way out of debt..There is a separation between the church and the state…Unborn babies are not people…Secret Societies have no impact on American policy…Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain…”
I may have born at night, but it wasn’t last night.
Remember how they laughed at Ron Paul three years ago when he talked about the FED and monetary policy? Remember how Al Gore laughed when we questioned man made global warming? Remember the cat-calls from Barney Frank when we said there was a real estate bubble? Remember their howls when we pointed out that we were shipping all of our jobs overseas?
Don’t ever stop thinking. Don’t ever stop asking questions. Don’t ever stop pointing out the fly in the ointment. Secrecy is the birthing room of tyranny.
If it doesn’t pass the smell test, don’t let them ridicule you into silence. Silence is submission.
“But Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came. The other disciples therefore said unto him, We have seen the LORD. But he said unto them, Except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will not believe.” -John 20:24-25
“Hey Dude, show me the birth certificate!” God gave me a brain. I think I’ll use it.
I am a proud conspiracy theorist.
