If you are powerful enough, and not concerned for you individual welfare, but only for the continuation of the power structure that keeps people like you in power, you do not need to be part of a conspiracy. you can just make sure that your peers and your minions stay in their places and do their jobs. The rich are no more afraid to die than the poor (though they tend not to die so quickly. What they fear is that the system which allows people like them to get rich and powerful might be disrupted. Our main job, then, it seems to me, is to disrupt it. I suppose i should add that this should be done without putting the ninety-nine percent in more danger than they already are. The Trayvon Martin tragedy shows that that would be hard to do, short of a Syria type uprising. Do we really have to treat the economic and political elite as though they were the equivalent of a tyrant? I'm starting to think so. Maybe i read to many of your posts.

interesting

i feel that blithe ignorance is enough to make a "conspiracy" - i see conspiracies in the context of trends in capitalism and human nature in general

lots of conspiracies would fall apart if members realised consciously what they were "conniving" or "intending"

human nature goes a long way on innuendo and paradox

and the problems of the elite are generally the same as those of many of the 99% - selfishness, ignorance, fear, want, stupidity

it's just that the elites are so insulated from much of society, as from real-world rationality, they tend to score high on the "sociopath" and "idiot" scales

for "they know not what they do" - (whilst several at the top know fully well what they do, and can be defined as evil)

and so they must be shaken up by some means

and there should be justice
