Maybe we need more conspiracies, not fewer?
I mean, if a conspiracy is either good or bad, depending on the context, why not?
I think a little more long-term calculated thinking might do us all well.
Maybe instead of wishing for some indeterminate career move to fall in your lap, you should be laying the groundwork and planning it yourself.
You probably aren’t going to be where you want tomorrow.
But you might be surprised where you can get to in five years.
Or what if you finally decided to get in shape?
No telling everyone about it.
You just went to the gym and changed your life…
Perhaps we have too few conspiracies, not too many. Too little scheming, rather than too much. What would happen if more people took up plotting, coordinating how to eliminate what they believe are negative forces and obstacles, and tried to wield power in an attempt to change the world? We could almost always use more boldness, and less complacency. We could use less telegraphing of our intentions or ambitions and see what secrecy, patience, and planning might accomplish. We could use a little more craziness and disruption, even from the people we disagree with.
