Petchy, our hippy insurance expert (of whom, I am sure, more in the fullness of time), has a saying about this which might or might not be original:

"The history of the world is not, of course, shaped by shadowy elite conspiracies; but it is a useful analytical tool to treat it as if it were".


CB: Exactly, an INSURANCE agent is guiding your political thinking. and you think the above is clever. Amazing. They have you thinking like an ostrich and you think you are the clever one.

The history of the world is replete with shadowy elite conspiracies. How do you think elite TINY MINORITIES have been able to rule over majorities without extensive trickery and ruse. Religion is a massive hoax, and it wouldn't help the shadowy elite if they didn't know it.
