The assumption behind any conspiracy theory lies the idea that people act according to the LONG-TERM expectations. Unfortunately, just as you will one day pray for hyperinflation and the easy way out of this mess without oppression, you will also pray that the conspiracy theories are real for that would mean there is some plan and perhaps we could negotiate reason. If there is no conspiracy and all we are doing is looking at the next trade or what has to be done to win a vote and the hell with implications long-term, then the outcome is far worse. That means we crash and burn and we lose everything. There is no giant conspiracy that will keep the structure intact. We are facing a structural collapse because there is NO plan – just knee jerk reactions.
