New arrival on Conspiracy Row. Haven't unpacked yet, hoping the neighbours are friendly. They dress nicely, sharp black suits and aviators. Guy on the other side gives me the most detailed weather forecasts I've ever seen - three months in advance.

I'm English, and like my username says, of a left wing persuasion, also an atheist. I'm a sceptic in the sense that I keep an open mind, and actually enjoy uncertainty. I'm not looking just to substitute one concrete worldview with another.

Of the content on this site, I think I probably get more fun out of what might be described as 'fortean' subjects than the die-hard new world order/illuminati theories. Also, I do hold the belief that a lot of history is down to the human ability to make a total mess of things, rather than cold, inscrutable planning.

According to other communists I have had the displeasure of meeting, there are no conspiracies because all the worlds ills are caused by capitalism. It's good to know that at least one of you has the capability of individual, rational thought. Welcome to ATS.

This may be a culture/language gap, but I don't identify as a Communist, possibly Socialist in several ways, which is not the same. Not sure what side of the pond you're from, but 'Liberal' means something very different in the UK and the rest of Europe than it does in the USA.

I don't believe unrestrained capitalism means 'freedom' for the majority, indeed I feel democracy and capitalism are not automatic bed fellows. However, the fact I'm typing this on my shiny Mac shows there are some benefits to entrepreneurism. Given the root of 'liberal' is the word 'freedom', while I could describe myself as fiscally liberal/socialist, socially I'm libertarian. On subjects like sexuality and drugs, I think decriminalisation and licensing are the way to go.

As for conspiracy, of course it exists but for my money, the real conspiracies are held between small groups of people and are often concocted to hide mistakes and incompetence and corruption, rather than being a proactive plan for the world. The people who conspire are just like us - they all have skid marks in their underpants and forget whether they turned the gas stove off before they left the house.

I've been told my username is offensive (my intent was ironic and humorous) so it'll be changing in the next few seconds. Time to regenerate....

New teeth....that's weird.

I suppose this is what the 'flags' were about on my profile? Absolutely no offence intended to those who identify as 'liberals', because that's what I am basically. It was just a giggle, an ironic joke based on a ranting conservative talk show host I saw on TV back in the 80s. Anyway, here I am, renamed. reborn, washed clean etc.

My previous thoughts still apply.
