Probitally the only way to stop it is by manipulating the clandestine powers to kill off each other, the last being too weak, and then someone just could make a popular uprising to make a powerful group of thier own.

I'm just speaking for myself here, but I don't make accusations without significant proof of them occurring, therefore I find it hard accepting the degrading name of "Conspiracy Theorist", it has a bad stigma, and is often the prejudicial thing to call someone before you hear their story.
Okay, so maybe someone is a conspiracy theorist when they say that the Aliens hijacked the plains and crashed them into the World Trade Centers. But it isn't a conspiracy theory when you expose the fact that President George Bush let a Saudi Arabian jet fly through America and pick up unknown individuals the day afterwards. No; this is just something that the Bush administration and the FBI have to answer directly.
People who oppose political power simply because other people don't just so they're "not pawns" probably are pawns. It's childish rebellion in most cases, and the goal is not to become a larger than the average civilian by reputation, the aim is to attain social awareness and research regularly so you can develop a solid knowledge and personal ideology without being seduced by lies and demagogues.
