Why I Am Not A Conspiracy Theorist

I’m not a conspiracy theorist because I understand that a conspiracy is just a gang of fools who share the control delusion that they’ve actually got things all figured out and under control. And a conspiracy theorist is just another fool who shares that same control delusion, even though he or she is not actually a member of the gang of wannabe conspirators.

The world is just not that simple. Although I do think it’s true that some people really do have more executive influence than others — at least temporarily and in certain situations — I think really anybody or any group of anybodies who seriously thinks that they’re running things, and especially anybody who agrees with them on that point — is disconnected from reality.

But that’s just my opinion, for now, and until I see a good reason to change it. But enough about me already. What do you think? I’d really like to know.

    1. Hmmm, interesting dilemma. Been mulling it over for about an hour now, and am inclined to agree. But it wasnโ€™t obvious at first and Iโ€™m curious to know how you came to that conclusion, if youโ€™re open to sharing. No worries if not. Either way, thanks for reading and commenting! ๐Ÿ˜Š

      1. I agree, but that’s actually not what I had come up with before. Actually, I’m not sure that’s relevant now because I just realized that I actually misunderstood what you had written. You actually wrote “I’d rather be labeled–” and I misunderstood that as “I’d rather be–“. Big difference between those too. What you actually said makes a lot more sense to me. ๐Ÿ™‚
