While some may argue that things are not always as they seem on occasion - on occasion they are all that they seem. Take for example conspiracy theories, if you will.
Conspiracy theories are there to be lampooned, if you will, slain like dragons. On some occasions a lampooner of conspiracy theories becomes the conspiracy themselves. Or, in some cases, the conspiracy theory is the lampooner.
A conspiracy theory usually attributes the ultimate cause of an event or chain of events or the concealment of such causes from public knowledge, to a secret, and often deceptive plot by a group of influential people or in some cases, writers. However these writers are not, in anyway influential. Indeed not.
Many conspiracy theories imply that events were manipulated by others behind the scenes. That may or not be the case.
Take for example The Vatican Secret Archives, located in Vatican City, it is the central repository for all of the acts promulgated by the Holy See. These archives also contain the state papers, correspondence, papal account books, and many other documents which the church has accumulated over the centuries.
There is NO conspiracy. To suggest so makes one an instigator, an instigator against God.
Take another theory, if you will, which needs to be, in my humbe opinion, lampooned.
A New York based writer, most definately male, masquerading online as a British female QC and judge, (who happens to be quarter cheroke - with six children - who just happens to have written TV scripts and who just happens to be......I could go on, the ramblings never end for John) disguising his actual beliefs that he suggestively lampoons as 'jokes' - when in fact they are the rantings of a deranged fool - who though lampooning the establishment does actually believe the substance of what he writes.
Either that or he is indeed, a tool of the establishment. Me thinks just a tool.
Is it a conspiracy? Of course not. The character itself is too far fetched to believe, the postings it makes to grotesquely outageous to have any depth of truth however some have been hoodwinked. Well done you.
However shame on you also. You mock those who believe and trust you. You have made them fools. It is a confederacy of fools - of your making.
Is it amusing? Highly so.
However, when the 'character' one adopts leads others to rely on a 'character' that does not exist - and when that 'character' is debunked the 'character' must expect lampooning.
It is of course, what we do. it is of course, what you do.
You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can not fool all of the people all of the time.
