Conspiracy Theorist?

From the Labour Humanist, an interesting test for you to take

Hmmm.... aimed at anyone in particular?

I think we can all learn from it - but perhaps some more than others...

I am less a "conspiracy theorist" and more a "cock-up, cover-up theorist".

And remember, theorizing that Murdoch's News Corporation (for example) of being conspiratorial in always maximising profits for its shareholders, is not a 'conspiracy theory' - it is a statement of fact.

Yes, what was that far from Conspiracy Theory post of yours,

"We are slaves enslaved by slave-masters".

Your 'statement of fact' is pretty banal. All companies with shareholders try to maximise returns, pretty much. The CT bit comes in when people wildly speculate as to how they do it.

Still, if you don't think I mean you (and I'm not saying I do), take the test anyway. Most people fail at least one question, I reckon.
