There are three types of people, or three strains of thinking that make up the whole of criminality. One: people with no respect for other people or for public order.

My conspiracy theory concerns our governments. It might often seem that these institutions are staffed with incompetents, corrupt persons, or greedy evil schmucks (or some permutation of the same). People tire of this. People are being coerced into giving up on the idea of governance, and trying to overthrow public order to end the insanity. Then these same governments can credibly (and powerfully) crush dissenters with the iron fist of a modern army or police force. People end up losing.
What we as People need to do (still theory) is to "openly infiltrate" our governments, acting with courage, swiftness and moral integrity; then once inside, stay committed until we can dismantle the components that are toxic. I don't think the world can be improved another way.
