Now I know what to call myself :-)
It's true I abhor conspiracy theories, especially John Todd type ones. It may or may not be true there are 1 or 2 families controling the world, but I'm not sure anyone can have that much control over everything. I think less in conspiracy theory and more in terms of conglomerate theory, game theory. With human nature, greed conspires. There is no head of the beast to shoot. Everyone has some greed and it all adds up. Players use greed to manipulate from their own ends for their own reasons, amd some are more in a position to make the rules than others.
When people get crushed at rock concerts, nobody conspires to suffocate or trample on anyone in the front. You can't blame the performing artists for encouraging the rush, or people at the back for pushing. Everybody adds their bit. The performers want to be seen the audience wants to get closer to see. A kilo or two each in the back adds up to 100s just 50 meters in front, so that people lose control of their own feet, turn blue and rib cages collapse. When people die, everyone is guilty and no one is guilty. You can't even blame it all on foolish moves like drugs and crowd diving so you end up falling on the ground and trampled. It happens because it's what people do.
