I always considered myself a conspiracy fatalist. I figured there were conspiracies, but what in the hell could you do about them. Then Shugarts informs me that there are only two classifications here. "You are either a conspirator or a pawn in the conspiracy; there is no middle ground." And then I realized it was worse than I thought. I am not even important enough to be a pawn.
Engrossing subject matter...just not written very well.
