Confessions Of A Happy Conspiracy Theorist

Download PDF Version

Conspiracy theory is a term that is used to protect a lie.

Where do we find the most conspiracies? Very little happens in Washington D.C. that is not a conspiracy. What is a lobbyist other than one who represents others who are conspiring to have congress pass a bill that bolsters their income and well being. Every election is filled with conspiracies to allow one candidate to gain an advantage over the other or to discredit the opposition. Every advertisement is a conspiracy to get new customers.

However, only when a lie is being protected does conspiracy theory get mentioned and it is in a negative way. If one is going to study group behavior, assuming no conspiracies removes anything and everybody which might be studied.

So, when some of the first words from the media after Epstein dies start making reference to what conspiracy theorists are going to come up with that is a an attempt to protect a lie. Actually, doubting the veracity of what we are told is different than conspiracy theory. Even parents wisely question the words that come out of their children’s mouths.

Truth is not used in politics. Truth can be used in government but it is just one tool in the communication toolbox. The fact is that all that happens in aggregate behavior is conspiracy based, even if it is only partial.

Over the years, conspiracy theories that get no respect, turn out to be true. Regardless, in order to protect lies, all conspiracy theories get pigeon holed in the category of the fake moon landing kind.

After the beginning of the Spanish American War, the conspiracy theory was that the Spanish actually did not blow up the Battle Ship Main. We now know that that conspiracy theory turned out to be true.

There was the theory that the Gulf of Tonkin resolution was actually based on an incident that didn’t occur.  That one turned out to be true.

There was no way Oswald acted alone in the Kennedy assignation. Evidence has emerged to the effect that the assignation was carried out by our own CIA.However, only when a lie is being protected does conspiracy theory get mentioned and it is in a negative way.

If someone wants to call me a conspiracy theorist, I am happy to have it that way. There is just no way to question what goes on in Washington without being labeled a conspiracy theorist with hopes that you will be dismissed. The term conspiracy theorist is in deed used for the purpose of protecting a lie.  I have never known it to be used any other way.

About Fantasy Free Economics

James Quillian independent scholar,free market economist,and teacher of natural law. Who is James Quillian? Certainly I am nobody special, Just a tireless academic and deep thinker. Besides that, I have broken the code with respect to economics and political science. Credentials? Nothing you would be impressed with. I am not a household name. It is hard to become famous writing that virtually no one in the country is genuinely not in touch with reality. But, if I did not do that, there would be no point in my broking the broken the code. If you read the blog, it is easy to see that there are just a few charts, no math and no quantitative analysis. That is not by accident. Given what I know, those items are completely useless. I do turn out to be highly adept at applying natural law. Natural law has predominance over any principles the social science comes up. By virtue of understanding natural law, I can debunk, in just a few sentences , any theory that calls for intervention by a government. My taking the time to understand the ins and outs of Keynes General Theory is about like expecting a chemistry student to completely grasp all that the alchemists of the middle ages thought they understood in efforts to turn base metals into goal. Keynesian theory clearly calls for complete objectivity. Government can only make political decisions. Keynesian techniques call for economic decisions. So, why go any further with that? Fantasy Free Economics is in a sense a lot like technical analysis. Technical analysis began with the premise that it was impossible to gain enough information studying fundamentals to gain a trading advantage. Study the behavior of investors instead. Unlike technical analysis, I don't use technical charts. What I understand are the incentives of different people and entities active in the economics arena. For example, there is no such thing as an incentive to serve with life in the aggregate. In the aggregate, only self interest applies. It is routinely assumed otherwise. That is highly unappealing. But, I am sorry. That is the way it is. I can accept that because I am genuinely in touch with reality. Step one in using Fantasy Free Economics is for me to understand just how little I really know. A highly credentialed economist may know 100 times what I do based on the standard dogma. Compare the knowledge each of us has compared to all there is to know and we both look like we know nothing at all. There is always more than we don't know than what we do know. I am humble enough to present myself on that basis. Why? That is the way it is. I am not bad at math. I have taught math. What I understand is when to use it and when to rely on something else. Math is useless in natural law so I don't use it. While others look at numbers, I am busy understanding the forces in nature that makes their numbers what they are. That gives me a clear advantage.
