There have been many conspiracy theories about many things. One of the most ridiculous I heard though, was the other day on CNN where one esteem lawyer and Legal analyst said the defense for the man who shot up the theater in Colorado and kill twelve people, would be a conspiracy theory.
The defense he said could argue that the man has to say that the world was conspiring against him and implied that from his position his retaliation to kill so many people and wounded so many more, and wounded them indeed for life, would be justified. Of course the man would have to be adjudged as insane, according to this analyst, for this type of conspiracy theory to fly.
What is so irksome about this conspiracy theory is that it does have a legal ledge on which to stand and probably prevented a murderist from a certain penalty.
Really though a conspiracy theory!
Let’s talk about what I believe to be a real conspiracy. And for all intents and purposes it might be a theory, right? Here goes: the conspiracy of the pharmaceutical industry and the health care system. Could it be a conspiracy to have medications to counteract the side effects of one drug or medicine and in due time, or no time you are a pill popping junkie? As a result of this, to stay alive and have minimal and reduced comforts with failing health, you have to spend most of, if not all your resources in the pharmacies and at doctors. There is also the proliferation of wealth and fabulous lifestyles for a privileged few, who have their lobbyist on the floors of the decision makers.
The conspiracy (Theory) is more in your face and apparent when you look through the partition curtain of rich and poor countries. It is no wonder that in 2008 the World Health Organization (WHO) in carrying out a major investigation into health care stated that this is dangerously out of balance and is failing to respond to rising social expectations for health care that is people centered, fair, affordable and efficient. This same body of the United Nations went on to find that “governments worldwide are struggling to pay for health care. As populations get older, as more people suffer chronic diseases, and new and more expensive treatments appear, health costs soar”. And as the natural mystic flows through the air many more will have to suffer and many more will have to die, as Bob Marley would say.
Could this be a conspiracy I ask when natural cures for most things that ail us are readily available, can be grown in your back yard or in the kitchen sink? When sanctioning bodies say no, to what has been known to cure certain ailments before they even allowed them to be studied?
Could it be a real conspiracy when cancers rule and a man dies every nineteen minutes from prostate cancer? When more if not all the attention is given to breast cancer which is not as prevalent as Prostate cancer? When everyone and his mother knows that October is breast cancer month, and the world is filled with the color pink, and no one knows that September is Prostate Cancer month, and there is no color of blue?
Could it be a conspiracy that JAMAICAN MEN HAVE THE HIGHEST INCIDENCE OF PROSTATE CANCER IN THE WORLD? The world knows this fact and goes to their comfy beds at night time without commissioning any kind of study and research to determine the reasons for this, and even learn from it for the overall benefit of men. Under these circumstances should I have assumed, Mr. CNN esteemed lawyer, that when I was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer and was responding favorably to the herbal treatment but had to stop it for the surgery instead, that it was a conspiracy? I had even had a reduced PSA reading then, but couldn’t continue the treatment as I was broke and insurance wouldn’t cover it. The Insurance covered the surgery though. Was this a conspiracy?
An interesting point was brought out by A MOUNTAIN MAN, from the new reality show on TV called MOUNTAIN MEN. The point was you cannot catch up to the herd of caribou by running behind them. As the Alaskan hunter said In order to make a kill you have to cut off the herd by running and positioning yourself ahead of it and let the herd come to you. Only then could you be assured that you could shoot one and get the desired meat for your family. Since cancer have arrived on the scene our scientists and researchers, and the powers that be, have been running behind the heard. The scientific community’s lackadaisical approach to a cure could be deemed a conspiracy! Should all the grief stricken people out there who have suffered so greatly from this scourge shoot up society?
From the physical and emotional trauma that I went through before returning to some kind of normalcy, should I have configured that into some conspiracy theory, get crazy and kill innocent people? GOD FORBIDS!
There are real reasons why people behave the way they do today, but the fundamental one is that they have no natural affection. When people behave worst than territorial beasts with one another, even with their own blood, and when a system is ruled by fallen angels and demons, when money rules and not love, when man tries to direct his own step when he cannot even walk… we will continue to have these enormous problems. Indeed the lion continues to prowl our jungle. Indeed! In this jungle…this mighty jungle…the one in which we live, the lion does not sleep. He does not even take a wink. You will cry my baby, you will cry my darling, because his footsteps are even at your door.
Until Earth’s rightful ruler comes, and until no resident will say I am sick, and until he intoxicates his sword with the blood of his enemy, forever! we must stay on the side of peace, love, and unity.
I personally am not trying to save the world or to change it. It would be presumptuous for me to walk into someone’s house and tell him to move his furniture around or to change them. I will continue to try however, to ease the pains of our sufferings and help those who will be helped to avoid the pains of prostate cancer and its aftermath. I WILL NOT EVEN BE CAUGHT UP IN CONSPIRACY THEORIES.
The real reasons we die, is coming up continue to look out for it. In the meantime check out my survival story in my book Prostate Cancer And Me...Or Your, The Two Stages (Man To Man) available at Amazon.com in print and electronic formats. Until then walk good and pack light.
