Pilger “conspiracy” quote…

One of the things I struggle with are things that look like conspiracies, act like conspiracies, smell like conspiracies (ok, I’m going too far) but in the end aren’t actually conspiracies, though they may as well be. I’ve called these “virtual conspiracies”, but that was never very satisfying.

However in one short phrase John Pilger captures it:

“A vast movement of self interest”

That covers well a lot of recent history, particularly related to the financial meltdown. It’s perfect.

From this article on WikiLeaks.

Update:

Now that I think of it, perhaps the term, “a vast conspiracy of self interest” works better…
