right-wing, subversive conspiracy against the United States republic
must be structured. Perhaps it is similar to the structure of al
Qaeda, where presumably there are higher ups who have no more than a
general picture of what's going on in the trenches. That way it's
hard to round up the organization because it is so loosely organized.
By "god," I've spent so many years snickering at conspiracy theorists,
and here I am sounding like one. Even worse, I'm sounding perhaps
like Richard Nixon. Maybe there is no such conspiracy and maybe this
still is a "democracy." If only I were so lucky. At least I'm still
free to write this.
