I'm feeling this was sabotage to prevent civilians from going out into space, as TPTB know what we will find up there, it wont be a secret anymore

lol, Russia doesn't have glitches? I beg to differ...
Soyuz 1 and Soyuz 11 killed cosmonauts and there is a plethora of unmanned rocket failures involving the Proton-M and Dnepr rockets just to name a few.
It's time for the world to rely on Russia for space travel. They do all the good stuff in space plus don't have these glitches
One pilot was killed in the crash and his body was found in the wreckage, while the second pilot, who ejected and parachuted to the ground, survived with serious injuries, Youngblood said. The survivor was found more than a mile from the main wreckage, he said.
Both crew members were test pilots for Scaled Composites, the Northrop Grumman Corp subsidiary that designed and built the spacecraft for Virgin and lost three other employees in a July 2007 ground test accident.

To put it more bluntly space is hard and # happens.
Nearly every manned vessel has had fatalities at some point before being refined and revised. The Soyuz hasnt always been the reliable taxi and the Apollo program didn't get off to a good start either.
People die in space.

My personal thoughts on this lead me to the suspicion that there may be a conspiracy here, as it was only Wednesday just passed that the Nasa spaceship exploded after launch as well. What gets me is we have the technology to get into space with out using rockets. But we still use them, why ? The think I hate the most about this planet is the suppression of technology for the masses so powerful forces can make a hefty profit on out of date, unconventional, unpractical, unsafe, unreliable technology and religious BullS*** to keep you in tack and preventing you of reaching true spiritual freedom so you can be controlled like a good little puppet. Seriously sometimes I wish some advance alien race from some other planet would come and abduct me, my wife an dog and get me off this planet and it's poor excuse of a civilization and take us somewhere were we can reach our full potential on a harmonic planet of equalness, fairness and happyness and true enlightenment.
