Conspiratorialism

Conspiratorialist – n. – one who focuses his energy and attention on conspiracies, whether real or imagined.

The core of the problem with the conspiratorialist is that he refuses to see his own corruption. Instead of seeing the corruption of all men, he chooses to focus on the corruption of certain few. Thus, he presumes to escape the reality of his own.

Ironically, he demonstrates his own corruption by choosing to point the finger at others, while avoiding attention to, or diverting it from, himself.

Curiously, where does the conspiratorialist think to hide, if those of whom he speaks are so powerful? How does he propose to stop them, or does he hope someone else will do the job? And how does he hide from himself – the culprit within, the conspirator of conspirators?

And where is God in the mix of things? He is nowhere to be found, though mentioned never or seldom or often. A typical conspiratorialist seems to present God as running and hiding with him. What hope is there if God cannot find a perfect solution for His creation, or at least for those who might try to avail themselves of Him?

Conspiratorialists do not have their faith in God. They are escapists, rebels, vainly searching for a hiding place from themselves. Why will they not simply believe God and obey Him?
