I'm a firm believer in government conspiracies...but I'm also much more optimistic than I was, say, 15-20 years back.
Because while I fully recognize man's capacity for mistreating his fellow man ("man" including "woman", of course), there's one quirk of human nature that messes up the One World types every single time.
And that is?
When you get three strangers in a room, it doesn't take long before two of them will be plotting against the third.
Why is this good?
Because huge conspiracies just don't hang together very well. For every conspiracy, there are dozens of OTHER conspiracies working at cross purposes, and that makes coordination literally impossible over time. As the I Ching might say, "The center does not hold."
Now, specifically about socialism in America: That could happen...IF President Obama is elected to a second term. But We the People don't intend to let that happen.
