self test A on the above           self test B on the above         

Some say I’m paranoid and deluded, that I play fast and loose with facts in an anti-social way. I am cynical. I don’t trust power My suspicions of others’ motives often extend to imagining a few evil individuals with a hidden agenda conspiring to infiltrate institutions, manipulate events and shape outcomes to their liking. (Note: While some involved with conspiracy theories are in it for entertainment, others are “culture warriors” unethically pushing their values, beliefs, and practices. While occasionally a conspiracy is realthe typical internet spread conspiracy is mostly fiction.)

I'm idealisticsome say deluded.  I can imagine…somewhere… ethical, honest, 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 value democracy; some are authoritarians; some are communists who want all property held in common)
