I have come to the troubling conclusion that the whole world has gone completely off its trolley. In the old adage of there are more out than in I think that out is in and that in is an asylum of outness, if you get me. I mean, you consider yourself normal right but what is normal if not a synonym for average. If average is a mathematical or statistical concept then normality is just a matter of numbers and as a wise man once observed, there are lies, damn lies and statistics (be it Disraeli, Wentworth Dilke or Twain). So what do I base this thesis on, what else, the NET. Please don’t be fooled, for just as the drunken man may become violent or lecherous due to being disencumbered of his inhibitions the Net gives that same freedom of expression and taking the world’s cyber pulse you will have to, as I have, accede that the world is paranoid.
I was trawling the Infopond the day before another, when I discovered myself in the realm of the conspiracy theory. Did you know that these people are convinced of a whole range of stuff including Jaffa cakes being biscuits and the Queen being German. Well, on deeper investigation I found some stuff that seemed to have some credibility. Did you know that Neil Armstrong never walked on the moon or that dollar bills are printed by the Masons or that JFK was shot by his own people because he was too honest, I must admit I was intrigued. I downed a movie called Zeitgeist and it was incredibly informative; it would seem that Jesus Christ was in on it, is in on it; anyway.

No, it is my considered opinion that most, if not all, conspiracy theories are the result of synergetic happenstance between paranoid ponderers and the powers that be. Culminating in the former appearing risible but ultimately quite entertaining, while the latter, riding the wave of speculation come out on top maintaining a semblance of cunning competence . We want to believe that the people in charge are a bit smarter than ourselves because most of us could not imagine the enormous responsibility of running a multinational conglomerate or a country, but lets face it they haven’t been doing such a good job of it lately, have they?
