35. conspiracy theories vs criminal endeavors

Conspiracy theories are a different animal from criminal endeavors; CT relies on the notion that there are agents of near universal power and willingness on the part of the conspirators. These extra-human powers of universal control serve as sufficient cause for belief in a usurping, unconquerable secret organization targeting "conservative" leaders and operatives, as well as the sovereign needs of the country. These claims never contain statements that are logically self sufficient and therefor result in constant "goal post moving" on the part of the CT enthusiast.
The treason commited by reagan, bush and ollie north is not CT in form or function; criminal endeavors have a distinct ability to be refuted by sensible evidence to the contrary; and due to the fact that it is disprovable it is therefore NOT a conspiracy theory- but a criminal endeavor with universally held conceptions about what constitutes a criminal endeavor. CTs are going to be losing adherents soon as we get further away from the millenium. Minds that are easily confused and distracted by pretty bullshit excuses like this notion that CTs have the weight of the really real truth about the world probably shouldnt be trusted to own guns or vote.
