2) Let's assume some conspiracy theories are correct, such a Zionism and the NWO. It is very easy to argue that they do things for personal gain; but there is a limit to this. For example we take into account British Colony's, such as Rhodesia. The British invaded and took control for wealth and personal profit however in doing so, as soon as the population fell into line and did what they were told too, they made countries into economic powerhouses with schools and library's and other wonderful things of culture.
History has shown that capitalist empires can rule people for everyone's benefit. With no dissenters the quality of life grows for all of them.
These conspiracy theories revolve around capitalistic empire growth. If they were to take control our culture would evolve and quality of life increase. More happiness, and that's all people want out of life, to be happy.
If they have to lie to be able to get to the position to seize power, but ultimately benefit everyone, isn't it a good thing?
Sheltered from pain people are happy?
No one can shelter anyone from pain.
People live with pain everyday and suffer everyday, as we speak, and they ain't being sheltered from the pain by any government entity.
Some of it was perpetrated upon them by the government.
Such as the banking/financial institutions that caused people to lose their homes and the economic collapse that caused the unemployment rate to skyrocket in this country.
So, what the hell are you talking about?
People live with pain everyday irregardless of whether or not it has been perpetrated upon them by the government and the government doesn't shelter anyone from pain.
And, you say the following:
"If they have to lie to be able to get to the position to seize power, but ultimately benefit everyone, isn't it a good thing?"
Are you freakin' kidding me?
You must be.
Who are they?
Get to the point, pal, and quit beating around the bush.
The government lies so they can seize power and this benefits everyone.
This benefits them.
