Democracy comes to a sad end, drowned in the fog of conspiracy,

millions of highly trained but idle minds second-guessing the minutiae of history rather than getting lives of their own. You can’t reason with them, even though their arguments are based on reason. The problem is that their arguments are based solely upon reason, blind logic the dead reckoning by which the argument proceeds and goes anywhere they want. People don’t examine the facts anymore; they examine their feelings. Everybody wants to be first on his block to unlock the secrets of the world, but alas, very few actually can. Conspiracy exists much more in the minds of its disciples than the supposed conspirators.
