I had recently heard about this rumored "growing trend" of resignations in the financial and government sector. Admittedly, I hoped there was some
hidden/sinister reason that would be uncovered for the increasing number. But, after reviewing the list in the OP, I'm left thinking these
resignations are not indicative of anything other than signs of the troubled economic times and social unrest that we've been seeing for the last 3+
Particularly in the financial sector, I would imagine, the expectations are ever higher and the scrutiny is much more intense these days. So those
who aren't able to keep up or those who have been cheating are going to be weeded out/encouraged to resign at a much higher pace.
I would bet money that if you look at every corporate sector, resignations are increasing in all administrative positions. of course, government and
financial sector administrative positions are more sensitive to these times, as one might imagine. I know at the hospital I work at I've seen this
trend over the past 6 months. These resignations are in most cases the alternative to being fired/let go. Take your pick... most tend to offer their
resignation. Is there more dignity in offering your resignation? Maybe... who knows.
The same goes for those in government. Increasing oversight, due to the recent lack thereof and our current situation, will likely find more bad
apples in the bunch. Also, politicians from countries with high social unrest may not want to be associated with an ever increasingly unpopular
government or regime. If you read the news, then you know what countries these are. As you may suspect, that is where many of these resignations are
All the resignations in the OP seem to have a legitimate reason. Read through them all if you haven't. I believe any other connection like secret
societies or access to privileged information is only secondary or unrelated since these commonalities are much more prevalent among such positions.
Also, I think some may have mentioned fear of public outrage/reprisal may have had some influence as well. That's much more possible, but again, in
my opinion, just not likely.
I don't want to sound too dismissive of this conspiracy theory, because I believe that anything is possible, however unlikely. While a small part of
me is still willing to listen to a possible conspiracy to these resignations, my gut tells me that there is no conspiracy at play here. So for now...
I remain unconvinced.
