The Hope of Oblivion

Conspiracy theories are the modern day parallel to the man wearing the placard reading "The End is Near". They are the shrill cries of paranoia, alienation, apathy, dissatisfaction and despair. They are "religious" in the worst sense, that which becomes heresy, in that they are immune to facts, allergic to logic, typified by contradiction, blind and deaf to the most common intuitive patterns - pathetically degraded prophesies that have abandoned context and shattered meaning beyond recognition. The hope of glory becomes the hope of oblivion, and the road to oblivion is wide and smooth.
