Have you ever been in the presence of a conspiracy theorist? I’ve had a few friends dabble in thinking something here or there in history was a conspiracy versus what was in front of us. But last night, I met someone who hands down thought he knew what the government was really doing. He gave me a quick synopsis of what he believed about the Federal Reserve before going into details. When he stopped, I had one of my moments where my filter wasn’t working and said “oh, like a conspiracy theory?”
“Oh no” he replied, “Definitely not like that. I’m not going all conspiracy theory on you.” He then went all conspiracy theory on me.
Unfortunate for him, I’m a bad person to argue with as I’m smart at a lot of things, wiser about more, but I have no interest in government. After living most of my life in Washington DC, I just don’t care.
