  1. This is an excellent article. For additional elaboration of both the semantics and use of this term “conspiracy”, please also see:

    “The Enduring Capitalist Conspiracy for World Government”

    Here are some relevent passages:

    Noam Chomsky had once observed an insightful nature of such “conspiracies”, as the open shared natural goals stemming from the very nature of its definition, which could therefore, no more be termed a conspiracy than both GM and Ford endeavoring to maximize their profits at all cost be termed a ‘global corporate conspiracy’.

    I have always added to that, the equally un-remarkable observation that a hungry lion anywhere in the world pouncing upon a lamb is similarly no global conspiracy by the world’s lions to eat up all the lambs on the planet. That is just the nature of the bestial predators when its “might defines right”. The only thing that occasionally deters such primacy is a collective natural response like the one observed in the “Battle at Kruger” park.

    Indeed, the concepts of “right or wrong”, “moral and immoral”, do not even exist among any primal predators, for one only behaves according to one’s nature. Such platitudes, if they could be argued by the lion or the snake for instance, would in fact surely be greatly disseminated to the lambs and the mice to make them an even easier morsel to acquire!

    Thus we observe that from Plato to Nietzsche, from the philosopher-king to the ‘ubermensch’, all have argued the necessity of ruling upon the sheepish masses as the ‘divine’ imperative of the “enlightened ones”. Indeed, Zbigniew Brzezinski even sub-titled his seminal book “The Grand Chessboard” with the egotistical “American Primacy and Its Geostrategic Imperatives”, merely extending that idea of ‘ubermensch’ rule from the most “enlightened ones”, to the most powerful sole-superpower!

    The same theme exists among the “Chosen Peoples”, to deem their primacy upon the goyem their inherent nature, their divine destiny. The ‘ubermensch’ are suckled these lessons in their mothers milk to acquire those imperatives across generations in perhaps the same way as the generations of corporate executives and CEOs who inherently know that they need to continually enhance the valuation of their company’s stock performance in a capitalist system.

    So when these ‘divine’ beings behave in their primal predatory natural manner across time and space, across evolution or creation, are they being “conspiratorial”? In the Chomsky-Ebrahim nomenclature, perhaps not.

    In the Ron Paul nomenclature, it is merely a shared “Conspiracy of Ideas”.

    In the United States’ legal nomenclature, breaking of a “federal statue” by at least two or more persons working in collusion (and when caught), is defined as “criminal conspiracy” and “federal crime”. According to the Columbia Encyclopedia, it is criminal whether or not Congress imposed criminal sanctions on the activity itself. A conspiracy need only be proved by “circumstantial evidence” even “if it violates the rules against hearsay evidence”.

    According to such legalism, smart conspirators, if powerful enough, could affect the enaction of conducive federal statues, or prevent the enaction of adverse ones, that would enable them to get away with many morally reprehensible systems and acts. The Federal Reserve System for instance, falls into this category. Similarly, bootlegging is a federal crime one decade, a respectable business the next! And internationally, it is the enaction of laws under WTO which defines what is criminal and what isn’t ‚Äì not the raping and harvesting of developing nations that goes on under its conspiratorial rubric!

    Thus suffice it to say, the word “conspiracy” even has legal semantics, albeit limited.

    But the multitudinous connotations of this word do not stop there. It also has a ‘tin-hatted’ or ‘kookish’ implication in furtherance of the devilish art of political science based state-craft. This was indeed implied by Congressman Ron Paul in his afore-quoted speech when he stated regarding the North American Union: “These are real things, it’s not somebody made these up, it’s not a conspiracy, … So it’s not so much a secretive conspiracy, …”. As analyzed in Project Humanbeingsfirst’s report “Dialog among Civilizations: Whytalksfail? Part-1”:
