Conspiracy Theories

The gripping thing about conspiracy theories is how apt they actually are. Many Conspiracy Theories fairly accurately describe the development of an ongoing situation in the world. The problem is, the theorists make the mistake of thinking these situations develop intentionally. Mostly, they do not.

This is like Intelligent Design vs Evolution, two opposing views on the same topic. The difference is that at least Intelligent Design ideology is counter-balanced by Evolution theory. There is no such counter-balance to Conspiracy Theories. If there were, they may be much more valid as actual methods of research and articulation of how society and civilization evolves, and why it evolves that way. But as it is, there is no such balance. God bless Alex Jones, if only our problems were so simple.
