Conspiracy Theory 101

While I do not ascribe to conspiracy theories in the sense in which they are usually mentioned, neither do I dismiss them out of hand as absolutely impossible. The dictionary defines conspiracy as;
1. the act of conspiring.
2. an evil, unlawful, treacherous, or surreptitious plan formulated in secret by two or more persons; plot.
3. a combination of persons for a secret, unlawful, or evil purpose: He joined the conspiracy to overthrow the government.
4. Law. an agreement by two or more persons to commit a crime, fraud, or other wrongful act.
5. any concurrence in action; combination in bringing about a given result.
Conspiracy does not necessarily require a group of suited villains seated around a highly polished table in a room lit only by a huge, illuminated world map.
In my opinion a conspiracy of people is far less dangerous than a conspiracy of ideas. Conspirators can be easily exposed, but ideas which are fraudulently presented as good but which are designed to serve the interests of a smaller group of elitists can spread and be practically impossible to stop.
I would like to ask you to take the time to view the following. You might see things which you dismiss with knee jerk swiftness. You will see things with which you will disagree or find incredible. Go ahead and throw those out. However you will also see facts that you personally recognize. You will see anecdotes which you would not like to see happen, whether you think they're happening now or possible in the future. You will see evil. These are the points which should be recognized, addressed and researched further. I believe that even if 10%of what you see here is accurate, then that is still far more than we can afford and far more than we should passively accept.
I am a skeptic by nature. You might be too. If so, I would ask you to let the video load and start your viewing at the one hour mark.
