CONSPIRACY THEORY OR COMMON SENSE? | 2004-09-25
If normal human bias is a conspiracy, then I admit to being a conspiracy theorist.
Remember that the entire anti-trust law in America is based on this kind of "conspiracy theory."
My father was in the brick business. If he went to a brick business convention and even MENTIONED the price of brick there, he would be subject to imprisonment under the anti-trust law.
Remember the best friend businessmen ever had, Adam Smith, said that they could not even gather without forming quote, "a conspiracy," unquote, to fix prices. Would any of the people who insist that Hollywood, television networks, actors and producers, Episcopal and other mainline religious seminaries, and all the universities are totally unbiased also say we should get rid of anti-trust laws on business?
But anti-trust law is based 100% and without reservation on a conspiracy theory.
