At a nondescript bar two blocks from capitol hill, the nondescript bartender stood behind the bar pondering the world and everything.
He was beside himself, not literally of course, he hadn’t done that since the mid seventies.
He had just served a beer to a man with the same funky ring as the companion whose table he joined.
The second key concept of a good conspiracy is the “orchestrated effort”. It is the concept that manages the whole conspiracy. Without an orchestrated effort there would be just be a bunch of people meandering aimlessly and not having much of an impact on anything.
Kind of like the Chicago Cubs. It’s ok I can say that, I’m a lifelong Cubs fan.
You may ask yourself, if the organizations are not known to each other than how can the effort be orchestrated?
This is where the ringmaster comes into play. The ringmaster is the one person who has set the whole thing in motion and knows all of the players. He or she is the one person that sets up the meetings between the parties involved and the only person that knows the conspiracy statement or the ultimate goal of the conspiracy.
Through the use of the ringmaster the hidden agenda remains hidden from the rest of the participants. The ringmaster allows the participants plausible deniability. Since they have no idea of the ultimate goal they can’t really spill the beans if called before Congress,the Senate or the NBI*.
The ringmaster is the caterer of the whole party. He provides fuel to the conspiracy right down to and including the cellulose condiments.
* The National Banking Institute or the National Baking Institute. I’m not sure there is much of a difference.
