(America’s Unique) Definition of individualism

Individualism means the priority of sacred individual rights over the rights/power of the commune or of fascist Nationalism.

The word sacred refers to the descriptor God-given to describe rights that America recognizes as preceding the writing of the US Constitution.

The words commune and fascist Nationalism include the concepts of any region such as in regionalism, globalism, environmentalism and necessarily includes the concept of habitat.

Recalling the Nazis, Nationalism was the priority of the nation over the individual wherein the rights of the individuals were bound (root meaning of the word fascist) and individual rights were denied for the greater common good of Germany. [See attached photo.][“These dead gave their spirits for the glory of Greater Germany.”]

I’ve seen a corruption of the word individualism by Communists, Putin in particular, and a foreign misunderstanding of American individualism by at least one liberal or left-wing Australian Catholic. America’s Protestant roots might also explain why the expression of individualism of the French and American revolutions might not be well understood in the melting pot of America’s many cultures.

Personalism, an old (but not irrelevant) concept in the Catholic religious community is similar but seems to be more of a term of art in the religious/philosophical field, while American individualism, according to my understanding as of this writing, is a term of art in the legal rights/political field.

Individualism as I refer to it herein, relates not to the person rather to the rights (power) of the person as an individual in competition against the rights (power) of the Commune. The individual wins against the Government because of the priority of the God-given sacred fundamental right of the individual to Free Speech.

For example, let’s take a look at what the United States Supreme Court (Chief Justice Roberts) said about the God-given right to Free Speech in U.S. V. Stevens, 559 U.S. 460 (2010):
“The First Amendment itself reflects a judgment by the American people that the benefits of its restrictions on the Government outweigh the costs. Our Constitution forecloses any attempt to revise that judgment simply on the basis that some speech is not worth it. The Constitution is not a document “prescribing limits, and declaring that those limits may be passed at pleasure.” Marbury v. Madison, 1 Cranch 137, 178 (1803).” [Emphasis added.]

http://www.supremecourt.gov/opinions/09pdf/08-769.pdf

To understand the uniquely American concept of individualism use Livy’s dialectic by considering the statements of those who oppose American individualism. Hegel (hence Marx) states that, “Freedom is the recognition of the necessity of mutual coercion.” [Quote is attributed by adherent Hardin to Hegel.] Russian Communist Putin described individualism as dangerous. And Obama in his typically inexact and rambling way stated essentially that, Personal freedom is preserved by collective action. Similar remarks are attributed to Hillary Clinton.

Redefining individualism as similar to hedonism, egoism or anarchy defeats the connection between individual rights and God as against the all powerful centralized government. In order to counter the mischaracterization of individualism by foreigners who easily confuse individualism with hedonism, egoism or anarchy consider this: American individualism is not a concept that pits man against God.

Rather the concept of American individualism is God and man together against the otherwise overwhelming power of government. This is not some sort of anti-government conspiracy stuff. The automatically-arising competition between the power of government and the protection of God-given human rights (power of the individual) consumes the writers of both the Federalist and the Anti-Federalist Papers of the late 1700’s.

If the Founders were not cognizant of the overwhelming power of centralized government, then why would they devise the separation of powers so thoroughly? The Legislature is divided into two and its laws must survive a veto by a third party, the Executive. The Judiciary is divided into three courts with original trial, appellate review and then the Supreme Court. The Executive is one but may be removed by the Legislature. The Legislature (Congress) creates the law but may not interpret it. Expounding upon the law is the duty and function of the Judiciary. The Executive enforces the law.

Now think about the lack of separation of powers in agencies that make their own rules, interpret them, establish their own facts, enforce the result, and then, despite being a biased party in litigation, demand that the Judiciary to give them total deference.

The writers of the Constitution knew their history. The Magna Charta, now about 800 years old, is the basis of human rights, human freedom and thereby human dignity found in our federal and state Constitutions. It provided that humans would not be deprived of life, liberty or property without resort to a jury of their peers, yet that is exactly what bureaucratic agencies are currently allowed to get away with.

As the exCommunist noted in the ’50’s era book “The God That Failed”, the largest most controlling monopolistic corporation is but a mere pygmy when compared to the power of government. Consistent with that thought, consider that even the largest US corporations don’t operate SWAT teams but the smallest subdivision of US government can usually figure out how to get one called up if needed.

I heard someone say that the reason the expression of individualism in the French revolution failed, but the American experiment worked, was because Americans connected God to their individual rights. And the French did not. So, when God is taken out of government and schools, Constitutional rights simply become, as in any Communist country, an illegitimate Kaganesque ad hoc balancing test between the interest of atheist man in rights (powers) against the interest of atheist government in rights (powers). In such contests, the government always wins.

So to reiterate what Justice Roberts said:
“As a free-floating test for First Amendment coverage, that sentence is startling and dangerous. The First Amendment’s guarantee of free speech does not extend only to categories of speech that survive an ad hoc balancing of relative social costs and benefits. The First Amendment itself reflects a judgment by the American people that the benefits of its restrictions on the Government outweigh the costs. Our Constitution forecloses any attempt to revise that judgment simply on the basis that some speech is not worth it. The Constitution is not a document “prescribing limits, and declaring that those limits may be passed at pleasure.” Marbury v. Madison, 1 Cranch 137, 178 (1803).”

Without connecting God to our individual rights, we cannot as easily recognize the loss of our human dignity when human rights to property are taken away from us. In labor law, employment is a recognized property right the violation of which gives rise to a cause of action by the individual whose rights are violated. The Endangered
Species Act now centrally controls, outside of the three branches of government, our private property rights. Central control abolishes private property ala the Communist Manifesto. (Last two pages Chapter Two.) By signing the ESA, Nixon capitulated more than just Vietnam to the Communists. “Just following orders” was no defense to the Nazis and should be no defense to those “just following orders” in the various anti-American, anti-human liberation movements.

Individual rights should not be confused with group rights. Group rights violate our Founders’ doctrine of equality under the law and show up as corporate cronyism (that resemble Communist oligarchy) and as special rights for small politically well-connected groups of humans and of endangered animals.

The following describes individual rights, that is, individualism, the priority of the rights of the individual over the government and its bureaucracies. Some states’ rights are included. The following is not a verbatim recitation, rather the list of paraphrased rights is to demonstrate much of what we do not hear on today’s professional agitator propaganda media outlets. Capitalization is all over the map in the Constitution and was followed in some instances and ignored in others.

The people shall have the Writ of Habeas Corpus available except under certain circumstances.

The individual shall be free from Bills of Attainder and ex post facto laws.

Individuals shall have limits on taxation.

There shall be no preferences toward one state over another.

Appropriations by law are necessary to authorize withdrawal of federal money from the Treasury.

No title of nobility shall be granted by the US.

The trial of all crimes shall be by jury.

Each citizen shall have all privileges and immunities of one state in all the other states.

The United States shall protect each state from invasion.

Congress shall not establish a religion or prohibit the free exercise of religion or abridge the freedom of speech, or of the press, or to peaceably assemble.

The individual shall have the right to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.

The people shall be free from the mandatory quartering of troops in their homes.

Individuals shall not be subjected to unreasonable searches and seizures.

No accusations of crime against individuals shall lie unless made in writing to give proper notice of the allegations and in order to provide for a proper defense.

No one shall be subjected to double jeopardy. [Regarding WOTUS, the central controllers at the EPA want fines up to $37,500 per day of violation.]

No one can be compelled to testify against oneself. [Compare that to certain administrative state proceedings that resemble the Star Chambers of old.]

No one can be deprived of life liberty or property without due process of law. [“Of law” has a special meaning that excludes the extralegal administrative state proceedings.] [“Due process” is a phrase of art for which whole books have been written. The concept includes substantive (authentic, my word) due process meaning the Constitutional creation of the law to include proper notice to the public, written notice of any alleged violations, and more.]

No property shall be taken for the governments’ purposes [of saving animals] without just compensation.

An accused shall have the right of speedy and public trial [No agency Star Chamber trials.] by jury where the crime was alleged to have been committed, to be informed of the allegation, to confront the accusers, to have compulsory process for providing defense witnesses and for a defense lawyer.

Where the amount of controversy shall exceed $20, a litigant shall have the right to demand a jury. [Again, environmental fine of $37,500 with no trial.]

The individual shall be free from excessive bail, excessive fines and free from cruel and unusual punishments. [$37,500 fine, daily.]

The individual’s rights set out shall not be disparaged by the numbering order set out in the Bill of Rights.

There shall be no slavery or involuntary servitude except as punishment for crime. [That is after conviction, not just because you decide to engage in a certain kind of regulated business.]

No state shall make or enforce any law that shall abridge the privileges and immunities of the individual. [Seems to me that economic rights are privileges and immunities of property ownership that should not be abridged simply by administrative rule that are not enacted first by law, that is, representative government.]

Equal protection under the law appears in three important places not including the Federalist and Anti-Federalist Papers.

The individual’s right to vote appears in several places also.

No where in there do I see any right of a small politically well-connected group of pinnated grouse, of tiny fish or of spotted owls to force an individual to give up human rights to private property or to private property self-employment rights. In fact, what I see is the establishment of a humans-first public policy that Congress had no right to alter by passing the Endangered Species Act.

Individualism

Jail Without Trial

Where is the criminal defense bar and the ACLU when the administrative state claims it can send “actual human beings to jail” without trial in violation of the Magna Charta and the US Constitution……….

CFTC Turns Toward Administrative Judges

It’s time for lawyers and others everywhere to read the legal work titled “Is Administrative Law Unlawful?” 2014, Prof Hamburger.

Quite frankly, the excuses they told us in law school to allow the administrative state to evade the law and the Constitution do not hold up under Prof. Hamburger’s scrutiny. And now we have this: Jail (federal prison) without trial. An administrative state that is limited by neither the law nor the Constitution has unlimited power.

This applies to the lesser prairie chicken land grab and the EPA waters of the US land and water grab and more.

In fact, the EPA tried to get garnishment of wages for the payment of fines, but was turned back, this time.

EPA backs off on wage garnishment rule

Want to Fight Communistic Central Control but Don’t Want to Leave the Country to Do It?

Fight the cancer of Communistic principles from the comfort of your own bunkhouse…. learn how to say No.

Joan Veon said that Public Private “Partnerships” exist to manage the assets of the government. And that would necessarily include assets that the government, usually a bureaucracy, lays claim to control.

Video of Joan Veon on public private partnerships.

All the critics are in agreement that WOTUS[Waters of the United States] is about controlling all waters, and thereby private property land use, of the US.

It ain’t rocket science. Central control of private property is pure Marxism. (Last part of Chapter Two of the Communist Manifesto.) Control equals wealth. Control equals ownership. Central control abolishes private property. Central, regional, national, global “planning” schemes are not legitimate options to eminent domain proceedings required by the US Constitution. Regionalism is not a safe alternative to fascist Nationalism, the evil philosophical twin to Communism that robs Americans of the sacred individual right to just compensation for takings of private property for bureaucratic purposes of controlling water quality, providing habitat for animals.

Learn how to Just Say No.

So, let’s talk about what communism is or is not. Is all central control of government assets communistic? No, don’t be silly. We are talking about the centralized control of private property and rights that are being systematically seized outside of the normal transfer of rights process and then controlled conjunctively through the administrative state and bureaucracies that are routinely being characterized as lawless by more and more legal scholars.

At some point I think people will begin to connect the take-over of private property land to other private property rights such as employment. For example, Cuba’s Slave Trade in Doctors. (May be a Paywall. Hint: You might be able to bypass the Pay Wall by placing the title in a Google search box.)

Now think about Obamacare. Does Obamacare enable public private “partnerships” to skim the difference off the labor of the enslaved, if you will, American doctors? We now find out that the Obamacare bill was intended to be obscure. And it is in many ways.

It clearly takes over a large fraction of the US economy and that is dangerous to American exceptionalism.

The reason I put the word partnership in quotes is because in a real partnership there is a sharing of profits and liabilities. But government typically dodges liability because of the doctrine of sovereign immunity. A public private partnership can include a publicly traded corporation that wealthy hedge fund speculators can invest in. The profit margin involved when enslaving doctors can amount to a lot of money for public private partnerships composed of small groups of politically well connected friends of the White House. In fact, such public private partnerships can hire top political figures (amoral opportunists) as safeguards against adverse legislation and or prosecution, and lend the whole scheme an air of legitimacy, of “giving back”.

Instead of true partnerships, the general concept of public private partnerships looks like a special delegation of governmental power to a select private company along with a smoke screen of borrowed sovereign immunity. Favoritism, corporate cronyism, oligarchy and monopoly were disfavored by our Founders who believed in equality under the law. Corporate cronyism fits the Communist form of government far better than the American example of equal treatment. Cronyism smacks of the idea that certain favorites are above the law.

So, let’s take a look at another specific instance of “assets of the government”. Texas has 1,500 years worth of groundwater, even if it does not rain again. Nearly all of it is privately owned. The Texas scare narrative is that we will never develop the technology to get it out of the ground. Surely, the advancement of engineering technology to extract water will not magically stop.

Through a heritage of ancient and relevant English, Spanish and French law, America, including Texas, developed sets of legal concepts that govern relationships between users of surface water with a governing authority managing that surface water and resolving conflicts between users with surface water rights. But in Texas (as in states east of the Mississippi), groundwater is owned outright by the individual land owner, the same as other underground minerals such oil and gas.

So when talking about surface water, the creation of a Texas Water Trust, Texas Water Bank, a Texas Water Development Board and water credits, and the like, are not all that unusual. But I am suspicious of the cover story when such banking and investment schemes are used in conjunction with privately owned groundwater. There is no legitimate way to use “regional planning” to plan our groundwater rights away. Regionalism, in the form of “regional planning” schemes, are not legitimate alternatives to eminent domain proceedings required by the US Constitution. I am not talking about the purely voluntary water market made up of purchased groundwater rights. Voluntariness makes a market legitimate. Trickery of planning private property rights away removes voluntariness. That is why, when it comes to private property groundwater, a water trust, water bank, a state level water board and water credits are highly suspect depending upon the source of the title to groundwater rights especially so when we learn that the Greenies in the UN’s Commission on Global Governance say things such as, “Regionalism (think Texas’ regional water planning groups) must precede Globalism.”

Here is something else that is curious. Ignoring for now the unconstitutional nature of the forced “saving” of 50% of private property groundwater, think about this. How can the selling of water credits of groundwater, that can no longer be produced (because the 50% level was reached and all groundwater production was stopped for the paramount benefit of the endangered downstream fish), not end up being some sort of securities fraud?

Now, put on the conspiracy hat for a moment.

What could be the motivation behind getting the private money of American super-rich hedge fund managers and others, even more wealthy, tied up in worthless groundwater assets that cannot be developed to their full potential because of a mandatory 50% preservation of groundwater in 50 years? (Never mind that the state cannot define 100% and that it is impossible to save 50% of something when you don’t know what 100% looked like or when it existed.)

And what about the climate change clap trap? Who or what has the clout (too big to jail?) to ignore all the pump and dump (in my opinion) going on with nearly worthless carbon credits and the climate change con job? Climate change – follow the money.

Conspiracy Hat Moment:
Is the purpose of the various asset grabs to drain the wealth of the US (and other select countries?) so it (or they) can’t fight back in the next world war? (That’s right Dorothy, war is something humans will never be able to end.)

Are America’s most wealthy being duped into duping the average US citizen with the Marxist, anti-economic theme that central control increases total production?

Or is the duping really aimed, not at the general public, but at the wealthy through a campaign that only appears to be aimed at an increasingly skeptical public?

We should remember that citizen wealth is sometimes resorted to, even as recently as the current Ukrainian crisis by an impoverished and unprepared nation. Oil tycoon buys batteries for military vehicles that have none.(Pay Wall)

Knowing how important batteries are to vehicles, what’s with the EPA’s draconian regulations forcing the closure of the last US lead smelter……..

It is well established that the American revolution was financed in part by the personal wealth and family treasure of early American citizens.

So what explains the stubborn global push to keep the climate change con going, the various environmental schemes going against all the available science, the same con jobs that are draining the US Treasury and the portfolios of the most wealthy among us and the pocket books of the average American through “smart” high energy and fuel prices?

So just to recap, communism is top-down, central planning and control of private rights. I think we all need to learn how to say No as more and more are doing daily.

Nothing Happens That the Federalist King Does Not Allow to Happen

Nothing happens that the Federalist King does not allow to happen. Nothing. It’s like all of this division and hatred, the Federalist King is behind it all because that King taught you and I our beliefs. Allegiance to the United States is a prerequisite of both our dogmas. Yet we hate one another’s beliefs taught us by the very same institutions at one time or another. Every citizen-serf-subject-slave owes paramount allegiance to the COTUS [Constitution of the United States] and corporate “government” of the United States. And NO law or ordinance of any of the fifty states in contravention or subdivision there of can have any binding force. No secede, no taking of federal lands allowed according to the Federalist International compact other wise known as the COTUS according to the states own constitutional agreements with the Federalist King.

This applies to the original COTUS recognized by the international community in 1783 and the post Civil War revised COTUS of 1868-1872 era. You’re all in one form or another rebel dissidents without cause. It’s simple, you have no political authority. Imagined political authority. You readers who claims to be a stakeholder in all of this corporate bi-law do not even begin to comprehend the corporate bi-laws you’ve entangled yourself in via corporate person-straw man-citizen-subject-slave contract status. The 1783 United States of America, then revised, the 1872 United States, is owned by the Crown Bank of London. The largest depositor of Gold in that bank has always been the Vatican. That banking Cartel has been there since the days of Rome. “Londinium .”

We are observing the resurrected anti christos system of Rome going global. It’s not a man folks, it is a corporation. The beast system, not a beast man. Doubt me? Please show me where our Messiah said he will breathe life into this dead man who allegedly rises up as the man of perdition? Please show me where Satan has the power to raise a dead man from the grave? Satan is not the life giver. He has no such power, and you, dear reader, certainly know it. But through his demonic forces he controls the men who control the Kingdoms of this world, those nations, including this Nation, since it’s birth in 1783.

{Londinium (/l?n?d?n??m/) was a settlement established on the current site of the City of London’s Crown Banking Cartel around AD 50. It served as a major commercial center for the Roman Empire until its Alleged abandonment during the 5th century} Interesting how it has been revived from its death.

So should true Bible believing people support the Constitutional U.S. Government? Does Christ Jesus want you to support the Constitutional bi-laws of a private corporation owned by the Holy Trinity spoken of in the 1783 Paris Treaty? These various documents known as the 1783 Treaty of Peace, the Jay Treaty, The Treaty of Verona and those two constitutions of the corporate Empire have deceived the people for over Two Hundred years.

The God of the Bible tells us we are to have no other gods. The U.S. COTUS corporation is a god and that god has its corporate bi-laws and COTUS to go by. Followers of this god are deceived and are apparently ignorant of the Biblical warning admonishing us to have no other gods – false gods.

A republic is a corporation, the etymology of the word bares this out. Rome was a republic and Rome adopted the law of Hammurabi in becoming a republic. That law is the law merchants code. The law of Hammurabi is used in every country in the world, even the Vatican uses it. So, does Yeshua (Christ} tell us to use a law merchant con job?? No and true Bible believing men know better and never will. I suggest people learn the truth about the corporate document, debt-slave instrument by the corporations that devised it. Do you really want to be a constitutor which legally means you are responsible for their debts??

To any who still believe that the banksters – Rothchilds – Rockefellers Control the economy, I suggest seeking what the Bible teaches us as to who is controlling politics, economies, sciences, international and nations laws which are dictated by international laws via Concordats or Modus Vivendi ; The Right wing gets the Concordat the left wing, Communists get the Modus Vivendi..

The Vatican makes concordats with right wing governments, whether absolute monarchies or fascist dictatorships. However, it snubs equally authoritarian governments on the left. It only makes quiet working arrangements with communist countries, since their regimes compete with the Church ideologically, rather than complementing it.

Do Law Schools Lie to Students?

There are sins of omission and sins of commission.

My law school did not tell us that our system is based on individualism, the priority of the individual over the commune, fascist nationalism. Individualism is why our Constitution speaks to the individual right to a jury, the individual right to confront our accuser, the individual right to an impartial magistrate and many more individual rights.

But when it comes to sins of commission, they told us that Constitutional rights are not important in the administrative process because the legislature did not have time to deal with minor agency matters. What?

When the administrative state is not limited by the law, and not limited by the Constitution, its power is unlimited.

Having unlimited power means that an unelected bureaucracy can establish a state religion that disguises itself as environmentalism, but worships Gaia, contrary to the separation of Church and State.

Despite the difficulty in always clearly communicating objections to the bureaucracies taking the side of non-humans over our human rights, maybe we should take notice that it is the God-fearing who seem to be the first ones noticing things going wrong with central control that prioritizes habitat for subhumans.

A Government Action to Get Out The Apathetic Environmentalist Vote

Renaming these areas, mentioned below, the “Harry Reid Areas of Critical Environmental Concern” in November or December would be a nice touch and assure big bonuses for the BLM sycophants that concocted this travesty for their political bosses pandering for votes.

1. REPEAL THE 17TH AMENDMENT
2. EMPOWER LOCAL GOVERNMENTS (SHERIFFS, COMMISSIONERS, ETC.) and orient State government to be their protectors
3. REPEAL OR SERIOUSLY AMEND ALL OF THE ENVIRONMENTAL/ANIMAL RIGHTS/UN-CONSTITUTIONAL FEDERAL LAWS OF THE LAST 50 YEARS. They spawned all of this illegitimate power for federal bureaucrats to us to destroy Rural America.

4. Do #’s 1, 2 & 3 and the ability and willingness of most State governments to again assume their role of protecting us from tyranny, and to putting and keeping oppressive federal power abuse in the bottle like some evil genie will return faster than you can say:

“From Nixon to Obama, All the Presidents have tolerated and profited from this growing ‘RURAL DOMESTIC VIOLENCE’. It is perpetrated by urban radicals, extremist NGO’s, and the self-serving profiteering of federal and state bureaucrats and politicians. The time to stop it is NOW! If not now, the question is not WHEN? The answer is it will be TOO LATE!”

The Anti-Economics of Drunken Lowlife Karl Marx

Marx’ slanders of the shared prosperity of the middle class, the bourgeoisie he called them, at the end of Chapter Two of the Communist Manifesto with the now forever discredited as delusional notion that centralized control of private property increases total production.

Hence we see groundwater boards conducting water grabs and sending an annual supply for 500,000 Californians out to sea for the benefit of the commune’s tiny endangered fish – during a severe drought; activist bureaucratic agencies cooking their economic numbers and the disastrous devastation of the lumber-rich Northwestern US, Curry County Oregon, now beyond two decades of subhuman impoverishment.

The Endangered Species Act, when used to enslave us through the central control of our sacred individual human rights is pure Marxism.

Central planning and control destroys America’s exceptionalism to Communism.
It destroys the private property rights that made Americans have the highest per capita income in the world ever since the 1830’s.

The use of central control is like planning for the future by burning your own house down, the exact same description I saw someone use to describe Keynesian “economics”. Sounds like anti-economics to me.

Phantasms of Freedom or Freedom?

Phantasms of Freedom

Phantasm:

A product of fantasy: as
a : delusive appearance : illusion
b : ghost, specter
c : a figment of the imagination
A figment of the imagination or disordered mind.

Q: Are you delusional?

Freedom:

1) Absence of subjection to foreign domination or despotic government.
2) The state of not being imprisoned or enslaved.

Q: Are you Free?

This worked liked a charm;

“Education should aim at destroying free will, so that, after pupils have left school, they shall be incapable, throughout the rest of their lives, of thinking or acting otherwise than as their schoolmasters would have wished.” ~ From Bertrand Russell’s book (Page 50 – The Intended Result of Education)

A 50-page CIA memo, known as “CIA Dispatch 1035-960,” instructed agents to contact their media contacts and disparage those, like Garrison, criticizing the Warren Commission findings that Lee Harvey Oswald killed JFK and acted alone. The 1967 document is here in the original, and here in reformatted text of its summary.

“If I call you a conspiracy theorist, it matters little whether you have actually claimed that a conspiracy exists or whether you have simply raised an issue that I would rather avoid… By labeling you, I strategically exclude you from the sphe re where public speech, debate, and conflict occur.”—professors Ginna Husting and Martin Orr of Boise State University

http://www.maryferrell.org/mff…

Minutes of CIA meeting that same year indicated fear that Garrison would win a conviction.
More generally, Operation Mockingbird was the CIA’s secret program to plant stories in the nation’s most prestigious news outlets.

“With this [CIA] memo and the CIA’s influence in the media,” author Peter Janney wrote in a guest column on our site last fall, “the concept of ‘conspiracy theorist’ was engendered and infused into our political lexicon and became what it is today: a term to smear, denounce, ridicule, and defame anyone who dares to speak about any crime committed by the state, military or intelligence services.”

Janney, whose late father Wistar Janney had been a high-ranking CIA executive, continued: “People who want to pretend that conspiracies don’t exist — when in fa ct they are among the most common modus operandi of significant historical change throughout the world and in our country — become furious when their naive illusion is challenged.”
