Negating the "conspiracy theorist" label
#10
The thing I find that is invariably overlooked by those who like to label every unpalatable controversy as a "conspiracy theory" is man's inherent nature to engage in conspiracies on a daily basis. And then pretend they hadn't.

In almost every human endeavour, from the boardroom to the pulpit, people conspire to achieve their aims. These rage from little conspiracies to big conspiracies. But this side of their daily lives is often - if not usually - suppressed which causes it to later leaps out elsewhere as a projection on others.

It is a case of the black spotty dog thinking it is a white Persian cat and then pointing fingers, holdings its belly and laughing, at all black spotty dogs that pass it by.

In such cases mirrors are feared.
The shadow is a moral problem that challenges the whole ego-personality, for no one can become conscious of the shadow without considerable moral effort. To become conscious of it involves recognizing the dark aspects of the personality as present and real. This act is the essential condition for any kind of self-knowledge.
Carl Jung - Aion (1951). CW 9, Part II: P.14
