What have I learned? That we have a huge and diverse range of opinions. That there is a what I will call a conspiritorial, very hard core ellement
convinced we live in a "matrix" world, where everything is an evil plot by the (pick one or more) masons, illuminati, the NWO, the later no one has
really defined for me, and for all I know the boy scouts. Goal is the same one, always a hit; world domination.
It would seem to me that in order to "dominate the world", someone would have done a cost vrs. benifit analysis. Right now, people make more money
by neglecting others for many reasons such as a having a stranglehold over trade, then they would if the Earth was controled by dreadfull group of
evil-doers. DO cospiracies exist? Of course they do. Another word that sounds nicer would be "monopoly". There are a vast number of organizations
where "scratch my back, and I'll scratch yours" is the permanant standing order between one or more groups. There is a small store not far from me
where the owner displays the business cards from a whole range, (most of which are retail) of companies. The store owner also has his business card
displayed in several other companies. I asked about one company once I saw listed and that companies owner got a free sales pitch, and a good one,
costing no one anything
That is a classic example of a conspiracy. By looking at this situation for what it is; two companies trying to promote each other, and not the work
of dark forces, the NWO, world bank or the devil, there is no mystery here. One example of a type of being delusional thinking is seeing connections
where there are none.(please forgive spelling errors...). Are there plots, co-operation, even co-ordination of strategic actions by groups of people?
There sure are, my background with the federal government, (long time ago), and the corporate world showed me this. My security level allows me to
see some very interesting things. A lot of which can be defined as people acting like pigs at a trough. The bottom line is if you smell
"conspiracy", look at it from the national/group/corporate worlds concept of enlightend self interest.
Do some famous and grand conspiracies exist? Sure. I always think about is the UFO/ET situation. I have no dout by what I've seen and heard that an
incredible situation exists and were just starting the complex process of crawling out of our cave, and squinting in the over powering sunlight.
Really does leave you at a loss for words. Along those lines, the idea some people have we CAN't keep any secrets, I mean look at Watergate.
Watergate came out because the Director of Central Intelligence refused to let the White House use it as a fall guy. In some countries, including many
western ones all you would have needed is for a government official to point at the reporter and say something like; "this is a "D" (defense)
notice situation". If you said/printed anything you would be promptly arrested. Most likely your media outlit ruined.
The U.S. does not have comparable law. We use disinformation and data overload to protect a great deal. By it's nature disinformation MUST contain to
one extent or other ellements of the truth. Usually it works. Givin the vast amount of classified information we have, thats not hard to do. The key
is not the level of classification something has for the most part, but the degree of information compartmentalization. Little trivia, this
need-to-know process started in WW-2, and is usually specified as "sensitive compartmentalized information and access" or SCI/SCA. And while a Top
Secret rating will usually have a fewer number of people in the loop then "Secret", this is not always true. SCI/A is seperate. A member of the
intelligence/military community or President can control distribution of classified information is restricted to group or persons "X". Also a
seperate designation is listed. It may for example contain a "release under the following conditions", or after so much time. Both broadstrokes are
unusual, but they exist.
Also there is a small group that are bigots, be it anti-Jew, anti-Catholic, anti-right handed people. We seem to have it all. The good thing is I see
a "train of thought" that might lead me to think X/Y,orZ is a bigot or a nut, but I don't see a whole lot of that. I like this site for the diverse
number of topics, and most people seem really decent. I may not agree with you, or I may even think your a loon, as long as people are civil to each
other we can talk...These are the main reasons I like the site. Last is I think the feedback from people is very cogent. I have learned, or gained
insight from some posters, usually the ones I don't agree with. I like the huge range of topics. I have a passionate interest in UFO's, but if this
site ONLY talked about that, I would be board to tears very quickly. For the record; I have seen some amazing US aircraft, but nothing I would call a
UFO. Also as far as I know I've never been abducted.
