The World's Most Obvious Conspiracy
Who are the Illuminati? What happened to Tower 7? Was the moon landing staged? What is the New World Order? Did TWA Flight 800 get shot down? Are airplanes poisoning us with chemtrails? Is the world secretly ruled by the Rothschild family? Who shot JFK? What really happened at Sandy Hook? These are the questions posed by countless conspiracy theorists. While significant historical events always deserve more scrutiny, I am not overly concerned with any of these alleged conspiracies. Instead, I focus on the most dangerous, insidious, and obvious conspiracy the world has ever known: The enslavement of every man, woman, and child on Earth.
To understand why I believe such a conspiracy is happening, let me summarize Robert Nozick's "The Tale of the Slave" (video). Imagine a slave that is owned by an extremely harsh master. The master whips and beats the slave mercilessly whenever he feels like it. Then the master has a change of heart and only gets out the whip when the slave disobeys orders. Later on, the master lets the slave have some free time. The slave is only required to do the master's bidding three days of every week and can have four days off. A while later, the master lets the slave freely travel and work wherever the slave wants, but orders the slave to send three-sevenths of the fruits of his labor back to the master. Now tell me; in this tale, when did the slave become free?
The answer is that the slave is still a slave, no matter what arrangements the master has made. Did the last scenario in that tale sound familiar? It should, because that is what virtually everybody does, including you. You can travel and work pretty much wherever you want. You are free to choose a profession that suits you and you can buy any house that you can afford. You can marry whoever you want and you are free to have children. You can purchase all sorts of neat things and you can spend your free time doing what you like to do. But despite all of these wonderful options, you are always required to send a certain percentage of the fruits of your labor to the state (the state is any coercive government). If you disobey and refuse to send a portion of your wealth to the state, you will be punished. The inescapable conclusion is that you, and everyone you know, is a slave.
That is why I never focus on the various conspiracy theories that are tossed around so much these days. Many of them are interesting and might deserve a second look, but there is a far more important issue at stake. I do not simply wish for the truth to be exposed. I desire the freedom of every human on the planet! I am an abolitionist in the most complete meaning of the word. The highest political end that I can imagine is the liberation of all mankind. That is why I mostly ignore the constant sideshows that occur every week, like Benghazi, the border "crisis", and the alleged threat posed by ISIS. These things are meant to distract but I want to help people focus on the most critical subject of our time. That is why I work to expose the world's most obvious conspiracy.
