No. It perpetuates a disgusting and sordid story about an unfortunate child. It spreads fear, uncertainty and doubt.
I don't blame you for being angry about this and not wanting to read it, but it is definitely a conspiracy. The world of child sex slavery is, in
and of itself, a conspiracy. It is highly secretive, morally repugnant and increasingly, thanks to the internet among other things, it is also
I'm not saying every pedophile in the world knows every other pedophile, but one reason that a single bust almost always leads to scores of arrests
and convictions is that these people do keep in touch, they do communicate with each other.
One thing that happens when something is as terrible and as taboo as preying on children sexually is that, because such a stigma is already attached
to it, any inhibitions people might have had just go right out the window. The level of depravity and debauchery to which pedophile networks sink is
really astonishing, and in their desperation to avoid detection and punishment they have become both ferocious and ingenious.
It's a double edged sword because I'm like everybody else. I don't want to know any more about stories like this, not on a visceral level. But
when you're interested in conspiracies what are you really looking for? Much of the time, you are looking for the urges that people feel the need to
gratify that they cannot gratify by any conventional, above ground means. These are the urges that drive people underground, the urges that fuel the
most desperate acts.
Look at how this story broke. An unnamed informant received a text message reading " "Nice piece 5 yrs old belongs to my gf and she wants to sell
it." So what do we have here? We have what is obviously a mass text message sent to a ring of pedophiles. It's like a *&^@*ing classified ad for
child porn. It is an underground network of people who have a perverse interest which they *need* to keep secret. One of them came forward and broke
Is it disgusting? Yes. Is it bloodchilling? God yes. Is it mere sensationalism? If it were just one couple, acting in a vacuum, we could maybe
write it off that way. But just from the details we are given, this obviously involves a large number of people doing something perverse, outrageous
and disgusting with the need for utmost secrecy. It is something that is becoming far more prevalent and it's a peversion that includes people in
all walks of life, at all social strata.
Finding groups, underground networks of monsters and bringing them to light. Surely that's part of what it means to have an interest in the
Conspiracy, in what exists beneath the bedazzling facade of 21st century America.
