What most typical conspiracy nuts don’t know is that half their theories are just antisemitic propaganda. The Shadow Government and New World Order set of theories, for example, simply extend the Rosicrucian / Illuminati / Freemason / Rothschild / Rockefeller / Federal Reserve /Protocols of the Elders of Zion chain forward, so that they now include the Trilateral commission, the World Bank, the IMF, the Bilderberg Group and the supposed “fact” that the Mossad arranged 9/11. Above and beyond the antisemitism, this is mere dullard credulity.
The conspiracies I believe in, rather, simply assume that the richest and most powerful of any age will naturally do their best to manage the world to their liking. That’s just human nature. But such people would not often nor ever entirely succeed; nor, more importantly, is it plausible that subsequent generations would be more faithful to an ancient vow than to their present interest. The power-hungry are, as a rule, far too practical for that. Thus, if there is a connection between the assassination of Lincoln and the assassination of Kennedy, as I believe, it is not to be found in a secret society with code rings, initiations and special costumes, but rather in a recurrent nexus of self-interest.
Or, rather, that has always been my stance. This new discovery takes me aback. Perhaps, there truly is a longstanding historical conspiracy: Not by a an secret order that perpetuates down through the centuries by binding new members to ancient oaths, but by individual people who themselves persist.
That’s what we’re looking into, anyway – Glenn
