Most of the conspiracies... they're bullshit. They really are. They rely on this idea that tens of thousands of people all worked together then kept their mouths shut, with absolutely zero errors.
There is no such thing.
Which leads me to a far more horrifying corollary.
Put enough people into an organization, and people will constantly fuck up royal. And these fuck ups will be visible and obvious.
The FBI employs around 33,850 people.
The US Department of Defense employes 3.2 million people, and anyone who's even been within spitting distance of the US military can attest to the constant nature of its fuckups.
The nature of our government institutions nowadays...
Is not actually to function?
Their mechanical rotes, their automaton style of governing, these go on, and make our lives a living hell of mediocrity and suppression. This is not functioning.
It is to cover up as best they can and keep us from realizing just how badly our government fucks up on a daily basis. That, ultimately, incompetence is integral to our government, it is the burst appendix of government.
And now, for the real black juicy bit of the black pill.
No. No it is not. It would like you to think that so you're too afraid to realize the truth.
'Well, no, we were never told there was any quid pro quo, I guess, but we think there was, so that's what we told Ukraine.'
Let's step back and think about how fucking dumb you have to be to do that.
Has our foreign policy been a goddamn mess for decades because it was filled with a cavalcade of fuckups who kept promoting and appointing each other?
That's what it looks like to me.
