This is a 'conspiracy theory' blog!

I have noticed that the politically correct secular Leftists (of many stripes, including many who imagine themselves to be anti-Left) have begun hurling the accusation 'conspiracy theory' around with increasing frequency; in much the same way they do 'racist', 'sexist', 'fascist' and the like.

Anyone who joins-the-dots and seeks deep causal explanations that are not pre-approved by the mainstream channels is now being dubbed a conspiracy theorist - and this includes religious and spiritual people who attribute the fundamental nature of the world to 'supernatural' causes.

I regard increasing usage of the conspiracy theorist slander as a sign of escalating fear and desperation among the ruling Establishment ultra-elite. It means that they - correctly - perceive themselves to be in acute danger of losing their grip.

'Conspiracy theorist' has become a mechanism of control and exclusion; a threat and an aggression; a scapegoating. Or, at least, that is what is being attempted...

But I regard this universe of reality as fundamentally alive, conscious, purposive - a web of relationships and meanings. Reality is not a random, contingent product of mechanical forces going nowhere - that is an error, a delusion and a manipulation; distinctive to a small social class, in a tiny corner of the world, over a handful of generations.

To call somebody a conspiracy theorist is to call them a fool - either insane or mentally deficient; and therefore to avoid engagement. But I aspire to The Way of the Fool - so that is a plus for me, a compliment!

So I embrace the label - and would advise others to do the same!

"“Despair, or folly?' said Gandalf. 'It is not despair, for despair is only for those who see the end beyond all doubt. We do not. It is wisdom to recognize necessity, when all other courses have been weighed, though as folly it may appear to those who cling to false hope. Let folly be our cloak, a veil before the eyes of the Enemy!"
