     go to previous choice         Choice #38: the 3♣ card            go to next choice 


I’m cynical and some say deluded.  My suspicions of others’ motives often extend to imagining a few individuals with a hidden agenda conspiring to infiltrate institutions, manipulate events and shape outcomes to their liking. (Note: This is more likely when those imagining feel anxious /alienated. It can 1) involve simplistic B&W portrayal of something that's much more complex, 2) devolve into paranoia, or 3) help uncover actual conspiracy although typically none exists!  Some link their belief in a particular conspiracy to seemingly unrelated societal problems.)


I'm idealisticsome say deluded.  I can imagine…somewhere… ethical, selfless, altruistic people conspiring to infiltrate key institutions, manipulate events and shape outcomes to their liking.  They believe in a centrally planned economic system in which, the state controls all means of production, and this, and distribution, are designed to satisfy human needs. Common good, not private profit / accumulation of wealth, is valued!  If true, I would not find this conspiracy all that disturbing! (Note: Some socialists are communists who want all property held in common.)
