A) No country has decided to give up all their guns.. even in Australia you can fill out the paperwork and even have an automatic weapon. How do you
think movies are made.. you can get a license for a tank..
In the american gun debate it is only over weather or not you can buy a gun without filling out paperwork explaining why you want it..
Which makes it even doubly stupid..
Automatic weapons are banned in America, but right now today if you have a reason to use one. You can get a license to get one..
B) Your assuming these are the same people.. when it is totally different groups that span over a century..
It is all part of the rightwing “with ya or against us” mentality..
Rather than thousands of different groups all fighting for resources and supremacy. There are only 2 groups..
Us and them..
Hitler has nothing to do with America’s modern right nor left.. it is a bs deflection to draw everyone into big groups.
C) about climate change: you are excluding subtracting the initial cost in setting up and maintaining the conspiracies in the first place..
Buying off larg chunks of the scientists, media, exc is not cheap..
You have to subtract that cost from the potential earnings from a carbon tax or whatever..
I doubt it would EVER equal what you were spending to maintain your conspiracy. Let alone recoup start up expenses..
Big oil, pharma , and really every other buisness big enough to spend billions of dollars lobbying because it is profitable to do so..
They lobby and profit off tax breaks and deregulation..
It isn’t profitable to lobby on behalf of the planet or world peace...
Just look at how much each group spends..
Who spends more???
Exxon or green peace??
