no conspiracy

Not at the Carlyle Group, cause the guys who really run shit don't have to conspire--they just plan and implement. Got a link to an old article at Red Herring in a comment from Mikal at the BeliBlog.

This is the kind of stuff that makes me feel like I should just put my head down and take what pleasures I can from my pathetic little life, and enjoy the fact that, by fortune of birth, I'm one of the lucky ones, because I will never understand how things really work, much less be able to change it. Men will make money and use money to arm men to kill men to gain power to make money. These things happen on an entirely other plane from the one we inhabit. Any full-scale attempt to dismantle it all would drive us into the sewers, scurrying from the Grid's watcher droids.
