Hi Gerald,

That 'central logic' is rubbish - no speculation is needed to be
aware of corruption/conspiracy.

Two obvious examples (esp. in US/UK) concern drugs and race:

CIA World Fact-Book - UK
http://tinyurl.com/76ljvs4
"producer of limited amounts of synthetic drugs and synthetic
precursor chemicals; major consumer of Southwest Asian heroin,
Latin American cocaine, and synthetic drugs; money-laundering
center"

I.e. although most police and courts actions in London are
directed against ordinary people and their (usually) soft or
herbal recreational drugs, most actual criminality - consumption
of hard drugs and money-laundering - is carried out by members
of the privileged classes and their hangers-on;

"![Patricia A Turner - 'I Heard It Through The Grapevine'
Berkely and LA University of California Press 1993] shows how
black rumors of coordinated white hostility are usually more
than justified" -- Peter Knight 'Conspiracy Culture' p 145

I.e. although "co-ordinated" can often mean unconscious
conspiracy due to racial biases, the effects on the victims are
the same as a conscious conspiracy of police, judges, politicos
etc. (see Stephen Lawrence scandal in UK - not yet played out).
-

To reliably detect conspiracy, one first makes detailed
enquiries, then does the analysis:

Methods of Inquiry

1 - the first step is 'Boole's Logic' or "truth tables" (John le
Carr=E9's 'George Smiley' used the same method, only based on
paper-records, to find the moles in MI-6 - SIS) I.e. - basically
it's collecting the data - on what the system does, and when.

2 - the next step is quantitative statistical analysis of the
results you got from (1). Warning - league tables of hospitals,
education systems, police forces etc, claim to show the relative
efficiencies of those systems. Mostly, that's not true - as seen
below.

3 - the last step is qualitative or ontological analysis of the
results you got from (2) by double-checking claimed or raw data
outcomes against those predicted (demanded) by the 'Law of Large
Numbers'and then by Bayes' Theorem. Because politicos' promises
and outcome results can often lie when viewed as 'raw data'.

[An indication that it scares the PTB is a recent decision by UK
High Court judges to ban Bayesian analysis - (Step 3 above) -
precisely because it can tell the truth and shame prosecution
lawyers/bent cops - see:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bayes'_theorem#Drug_testing]


And as for that 'reluctance to confess mistakes, errors and
ignorance', the opposite is (usually) the case; that is authority
is almost always claiming "mistakes, errors and ignorance" to
cover-up conspiracy:

If 'mistakes' were being made, in education, policing, taxation
etc. then they would happen randomly - sometimes taking from
ordinary people, sometimes adversely affecting the rich and
powerful.
But that doesn't happen!
All the so-called 'mistakes' adversely affect ordinary people, by
unjust edu policies, by grossly unfair taxation, and by
oppressive, brutal (or murderous) policing decisions. And all
profit the rich and the political class.
That is statistically impossible for 'mistakes' - which only
leaves corrupt conspiracy as an explanation.

[End Quote]

Finally here's Adam Smith (1723-90) in 'The Wealth of Nations' -
"People of the same trade seldom meet together, even for
merriment and diversion, but the conversation ends in a
conspiracy against the public" - confirming, as if we needed to
be told, that conspiracy is the default condition for those in
almost any kind of authority and/or power.
