I'm going to open this post with a quote from one of my favourite films - Revolver. (Jake Green) One thing I've learned in the last seven years:
in every game and con there's always an opponent, and there's always a victim. The trick is to know when you're the latter, so you can become the
Just run that quote a couple of times backwards and former through the mind. It says it all about con's, deceptions, secrets and lies.
Conspiracy - is the coordinated and systematic effort of a group of individuals to cover over the truth by a blanket of lies. The best friend of Mr
Lie is Mr Secret, the two work well together in covering over the truth and leading to a deception. The best con tricks are pulled by a group of
hustler's who all work together on the victim, and eventually gain his confidence and clean him out. The BBC series Hustle, shows this quite well
how they come up with intricate schemes and introduce themselves as separate people and never reveal to the victim that they know each other and are
in a team. They say, you can never con an honest man, because they always target a person's greed to get something for nothing, and it usually
involves an immoral or dishonest practice, so they can't go to the police afterwards?
I personally believe that the major thing wrong with the political systems is the keeping of secrets from the public. It should not be secret, for
example how much the tax payer has just paid for the politician's lunch, or how much the tax payer just paid to repair the mayor's bathroom, I have
heard examples in France of a toilet seat replacement, most likely due to the bottom that has grown fat from all of those free meals, costing the tax
payer 600 Euros. I guess some relative was in the toilet seat business. Total transparency is vital to avoid the abuse of power and nepotism and
favouritism which is all the rage among our leaders today.
The oldest conspiracy on record is the following :
(Genesis 2:16-17) 16 And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: 17 But of the tree of the
knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.
(Genesis 3:1-6) 1 Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God
said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?
2 And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:
3 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.
4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:
5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.
6 And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of
the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.
Later on in the Bible it is of course revealed that the serpent is Satan, the father of lies, cons, pain, & deception. See how he works the con, he
first checks out the victims knowledge and susceptibility, asking did God not say ? She replies saying of the tree in the midst of the garden, not
saying of the tree of knowledge. then she repeats the warning from God. The con man sees his chance to make an appeal to the Ego and offer something
of value, to obtain of course something of much greater value, that the victim does not know they are going to loose (her soul). The con comes -
"For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil." Satan is
introducing the first conspiracy theory, "enlightening" the victim and offering to make her like God - she chose to believe in Satan and disbelieve
