Conspiracy Theory

A quote from an article posted to resistance_news:

In his book, "Rogue State: A Guide to the World's Only Superpower,"
William Blum warns of how the media will make anything that smacks of
"conspiracy theory" an immediate "object of ridicule." This prevents the
media from ever having to investigate the many strange interconnections
among the ruling class-for example, the relationship between the boards
of directors of media giants, and the energy, banking and defense
industries. These unmentionable topics are usually treated with what
Blum calls "the media's most effective tool-silence." But in case
somebody's asking questions, all you have to do is say, "conspiracy
theory," and any allegation instantly becomes too frivolous to merit
serious attention.

The solitary is someone who, to paraphrase Merton, is able to give her
heart away because it is in her possession to give--a possession not
possible when we are caught in the silent conspiracy of collective
illusions.

-Parker J. Palmer
