I will tell you a true story that justifies the title of this article, inspired by the famous aphorism by Karl Kraus on Psychoanalysis.
I have a friend who, although a person of excellent intelligence and culture and, in principle, not anti-Semitic, has a certain predilection for the now overused conspiracy theory that would see the Jews, or some of them, conspiring to control the nations and dominate the world. The power group of this modern version of the “Protocols of the Elders of Zion” would revolve around the triad, or Trio Lescano (as I like to call them: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1YktS9LsGAA ) of all conspiracists : Soros, Rotschild and Rockfeller.
It would be them, especially Soros, to pull the strings of wild immigration, as hidden puppeteers of crude Islamic masses, primarily for the purpose of dumping millions of Muslim immigrants away from Israel and then to better control a Europe weakened by inter-ethnic conflicts and cultural hybridization.
While admitting Soros’ responsibilities in favoring unfortunate migratory policies with his
Open Society Foundation (which has little to do with the real Open Society of Popper), I am dissenting from the plan of conquest of Europe by an elite, let alone Jewish: what interest would Israel have to favor an Islamized Europe? Perhaps to be surrounded, North – South – West – East, by an ocean of hostile nations, by billions of potential enemies?
I also gave him the names of eminent intellectuals and politicians of Jewish origin who were strongly committed to Islamization, from our sponsor Daniel Pipes to Fiamma Nierenstein, from Bat Ye’or to Michael Modrikamen, president of the Belgian Popular Patriot and the man of Steve Bannon in Europe.
I insisted in saying that Islamic masses, however poor and culturally backward, have an enviable political conscience and certainly do not need the “Wandering Jew” piloting them from behind the scenes. So much so that the Koran itself, in at least two verses, advocates emigration as a half-wave of progressive territorial expansion:
“Indeed, those who have believed and those who have emigrated and fought in the cause of Allah – those expect the mercy of Allah. And Alah is Forgiving and Merciful.”
(Sura II, 218)
“Te ones who have believed, emigrated and striven in the cause of Alla with their wealth and their lives are greater in rank in the sight of Allah. And it is those who are the attainers (of success).
(Sura IX, 20)
Finally, I reminded him that the movements of peoples in search of new territories are a constant in human history, as both Tolstoi the pacifist and Hitler the warmonger wrote.
There was nothing to be done: my friend did not quit his convictions dictated by the dietrology applied to politics.
Until, a few months ago, during the umpteenth discussion with him, I had an illumination (but … still: I do not belong to the “Illuminati” sect …):
“You know, maybe you’re right to see a Jewish plot behind the scenes of the invasion of Europe by millions of Africans and Middle Easterners, but maybe there’s a hidden reason behind all this, and I’ll tell you I believe it is: (studied pause) … Some Jews apparently play philanthropists with immigrants and destroy Europeans, but in reality they want them to touch with their hands how difficult it is to live with millions of Muslims who do not want to integrate. In doing so, inevitably, they will shift the balance of public opinion in favor of Israel >>.
My friend’s eloquent silence … Which then snapped, with a genuinely stunned tone:
<< Shit, do you know that maybe you’re right? I had not thought about it but it’s something to be taken into consideration! >>
In short, while rejecting rational explanations or references to evidence, too simple to be true, he proved to be very attentive and receptive to the idea of an occult purpose behind appearances.
This story is indicative of the contorted mental process used by people who think too much in terms of conspiracies orchestrated by secret societies, be they the Jews, the Illuminati, the Freemasons, the satanic sects and New Age or the Bowling Club of Casalpusterlengo: they lose sight of the obvious reasons for the historical processes and the real knots to be dissolved.
The logic that takes hold of the conspiracy theorists is always discovering a high conspiracy underlying it, in a game of Chinese boxes that could be prolonged indefinitely. Any other more rational and plausible consideration goes into the background, almost does not smell enough of sulfur to be palatable.
In short, conspiracy is a form of paranoid thought applied to politics that can lead to distracting people’s intelligence from serious problems, often with dramatic consequences
on political level.
