just a thought on conspiracy vs anti-conspiracy

i was going to post this on tumblr but it broke. ah well. what this anti-conspiracy leftish crowd seems to be defining as conspiracy is a very popular media fueled version. eg “They are doing x BECAUSE” (they want to control this or that aspect of you just because) this is wrong because the most […]
