I actually don't believe that it is a conspiracy. I believe it is simply human nature at work.

Cuba, Russia, China, NAZI Germany, fascist Italy, Zimbabwe, ... Again, these were not external plots to destroy these nations, but the confluence of self-destructive human nature.

Only the people with the right pedigree and right opinions have anything of value to add. Ironically, they truly believe they are promoting democracy. In reality, what they support and wish to impose is in effect a caste system where the only opinions that matter to government are those from the ruling caste which they believe they are entitled and necessarily must control by any means necessary.
