Why should I be particularly interested in debunking "New World Orders"
and "The Protocols of the Edlers of Zion"? It seems to me that you are
trying to change one question into certain other conspiracy questions
which don't consume my attention but perhaps do consume you.

Surely you don't deny that conspiracies happen? If nothing else check
out Marx's "The Eighteenth Brumaire of Louis Bonaparte".

In any case, the existence of one conspiracy doesn't prove or disprove
any other conspiracy. It is not all or nothing. There is no broad
brush. There is no "Protocols of the Elders of Zion", "Eighteenth
Brumaire" and "9-11" all together, or none of these three all together.
They are quite separate issues, quite separate, and I'd insist on it.
