Wow, I guess I'm not as alone in wondering about that as I thought I might have been.

not everything is at it seems, that science can't explain everything, that real people really do bad things, and that all the effort we see to cover
things up each day wouldn't be necessary if there wasn't something to cover up.
The problems many “conspiracy theorists” and “paranormal investigators” have always seem to develop from the same basic error: jumping to
unfounded conclusions and believing things which are not true. [.......................]
I think that Majic here sums it up pretty well. I mean, it's our world, I don't just mean ATSers, but all of the citizens, everywhere, who are not
in the center of the governments that have the power to change the world, and not give a dam_ about anyone else. But, there wouldn't be much of a
world to change if it weren't for us. We ARE the world, and we have a right to know what is going on in it and what to expect for our futures and
our children's, etc...
It is not right (of course, not much is - especially these days), but no matter what we do, what we talk about, what we plan, etc..... the truth seems
to be that we are in their
hands, and that really sucks.
Yes, I supposes that the main reason that there are conspiracy theories, is by the very fact that our government, those who were supposed
, don't. Obviously, as soon as they are elected, or re-elected, they totally forget about any promises they may have made
to us, and many of them actually seem to distain us when they don't need out vote, really do do things that are wrong, corrupt, illegal, and worse,
so in order to save face to try to win the next election, they have to be constantly doing things to cover uo what they know was wrong, but don't
want us to find out about, or we may not vote for them in the next election.
But, we do
notice their strange behaviors, we do get a sense that they are covering something up. Sometimes we don't know exactly what, so it
then becomes easy to take bits and pieces of information that we have heard or read, put it together and decide that we know what they are up to.
Sometimes we are right, probably more often than not, we are either only partially right, or we are totally wrong.
The point I feel now, is that there should be absolutely no reason
what-so-ever for any of this. As hard as it is sometimes to put myself in
the same class of species as certain others, it is a fact that we were all born human. Somewhere along the way, some either were born into wealth,
others stumbled into it, and some actually earned it. But that money seems to really go to peoples heads, leading them to believe that they are
better than the rest, therefore they deserve better and have no obligation to treat others as humans any longer. They seem to feel as if they have
risen way above the rest of us, are above any laws, and because their wealth gives them power, and the combination gives them control, for some sick
reason, they seem to enjoy using it against their "fellow" man/woman.
But they are not better, and they ought to use their wealth and power to better the world for all. But, of course they don't. They live in secrecy.
So, we, rightfully feeling as if we should be let in on the secret, which should not be a secret in the first place, have nothing to do but guess.
O.K. I got carried away.....
Sorry about that....
