"Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power tends to corrupt absolutely."

Those who operate without checks and balances -- and without the disinfectant sunlight of public scrutiny and accountability -- tend to act in their own best interests ... and the little guy gets hurt.

The early Greeks knew it, as did those who forced the king to sign the Magna Carta, the Founding Fathers and the father of modern economics. We should remember this important tradition of Western civilization.

Postscript: 

The ridicule of all conspiracy theories is really just an attempt to diffuse criticism of the powerful.

The wealthy are not worse than other people ... but they are not necessarily better either. Powerful leaders may not be bad people ... or they could be sociopaths.

We must judge each by his or her actions, and not by preconceived stereotypes that they are all saints acting in our best interest or all scheming criminals.
