Ass Dan would've been there calling Cato a "conspiracytard" for suggesting that the first triumvirate had any ulterior motivations behind it. In history you see "conspiracies" everywhere (e.g. Caesar pretending he was attacked in Gaul first, William the Conquerer leaving England to bring about deliberate instability that he could then ruthlessly crush). Late Rome, for example, was just one conspiracy after another--do you think human beings suddenly changed or something?
firstly I would call him a 'conspiratard' but I cannot expect you to be a master language melder like myself.
Here is the thing young Drestard.
A conspiracy, one or two? yes
A false flag, perhaps in the oldie days, maybe now and again? yes
No one is saying it never happens, anyone who says 'always' or 'never' is simply failing in the game of adverbs. Life is Yin Yang, but life is not a black and white cookie (despite Jerry Seinfeld's wishes).
The 'conspiratards' (think Doomsday or Nic Yung) think EVERY event is a false flag, and you can guage their response as soon as the event happens.
It is sad, amateurish and predictable.
It also plays to a psychological derrangement where they feel a need to be 'in the know' or 'more informed' perhaps even wiser because of this.
It feeds the ugliest parts of their id.
Again, I am not saying it hasn't happened before, and it may well happen again.
I play the odds, and the odds are 99.9 of the time, shit happens.
Thinking everything is a ruse turns one into a joke. Does it not?
Surely you can wrap your head around that (between bites of your bacon sarnie and however much Super Tennents your dole affords you).
