The Conspiracy Theory continues

March 4th, 2006 Comments off

The PP 1017 is lifted but GMA’s government still continues to probe on the conspiracy theory that has become the very basis of its proclamation. They have already lifted the proclamation but the basis for such proclamation is yet to be established. Such weird logic.

According to Malacanan’s resident Goebbels, “We want people to be enlightened about what’s happening in the country, …. and the continued conspiracy between the left and the right,” But that they still have to prove.

It is because of this alleged conspiracy that people are now being arrested. It is because of this alleged conspiracy that media outfits now face a dreaded possibility of being closed down or taken over. It is because of this alleged conspiracy that the PNP and the AFP are given powers to suppress “lawless violence” – a term which is left to be defined according to the police’s and military’s own judgement and understanding.

Perhaps the conspiracy was too well planned because a good conspiracy is unprovable. The complete lack of evidence is the surest sign that the conspiracy is working. Or maybe, GMA and her minions are simply stupid not to realize that once you got the whole spectrum of society (left, right and center) up against them, then practically it no longer becomes a conspiracy but an open call to change an illegitimate government.

This conspiracy theory is like a cock-and-bull story that is being forcibly told to us during bedtime. And as this conspiracy theory continues, let’s sing all together; “I have two hands the ‘left’ and the ‘right’,” hold them up high so clean and bright clap them softly one, two, three clean little hands are good to see.”

Coup de Talk

“I will not run as President”– Gloria Macapagal Arroyo

“I am sorry”– Gloria Macapagal Arroyo

“I will lift the state of national emergency at the earliest possible time”– Gloria Macapagal Arroyo

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.” – Joseph Goebbels, German Nazi Minister of Propaganda, 1933-1945

Figures.
