It's certainly a lonely life being a conspiracy chick... But it's good to hear that your fella is into this stuff too, you're really lucky! Mine just wants to watch the football
Nothing is so permeating in American culture as sports. We are exposed to competition based physical struggles for dominance (a.k.a. athletics) from the cradle to the grave. Is this phenomena a manifestation of normal evolutionary needs for hierarchy, alpha males, and social order, or a skillfully crafted campaign of control and diversion by the ruling elite (the true alpha humans)? Evidence seems to suggest that the secret government has, once again, found a mechanism that pits our own human nature against ourselves, and provides the ruling class with a means of population division, diversion, and complete dominance of a large sector of U.S. Citizens (who in turn oppress the remaining citizens unconvinced by the frivolities of sports) through a demented form of postmodern tribalism.
