I know.<quoted text>
So true lol.
I have heard it said that when there are two conflicting belief systems, that we instinctively choose the one which gives us comfort. I used to laugh at the conspiracy stuff. Hell, I still don't call it a conspiracy per se. I see it as a chain of events where various players and opportunists fall into a high-stakes game which plays out in the most viscous and evil manner.
So we have a choice, which is the one where very powerful opportunists and schemers play a high stakes game at our expense and the expense of our safely and well-being. The other is a fantasy where we are attacked by vicious criminals and our big-brother government rushes in to provide security, safety, and revenge. Most of us will buy the latter because it lulls us into a false sense of security. We join together reciting platitudes and a mantra that conspiracies are the province of lunatics.
Suppose we just stand back and see what the evidence tells us. Suppose we listen to what the innocent bystanders say. Suppose we listen to what impartial experts have to say. It leads us to a most unfortunate truth that the real enemy is within.
This is the wrong thread to be promulgating such heresy, however. Last time I tried to reason the situation out on this thread, I was met with "Engage Shields, Mr. Sulu."
It's pretty clannish here, but I like it anyway. Just color me "Enjoys a challenge."
