On Racketeering

What’s important is the distinction between paranoia and conspiracy theory, which imply mental illness, and the rational actor, seeing signs of organized crime/racketeering, researching that and bringing that forward to the attention of the public.

It should be obvious that when the people who are corrupt who are engaged in the racketeering learn about efforts by citizens to stop them, that they are going to try and make it sound like those citizens are “crazy.” Obviously, they are not “crazy,” but rather they are looking for ways to make sense of the things that don’t make sense, and make change and disrupt the system of corruption, so that power is restored to the people in a real way, and not in a phony way.

I should emphasize that it is very, very, very difficult to do this work. Bad actors are extremely sophisticated, and they know much more than the ordinary person about how to present themselves and make themselves look credible and appealing. But the only way out of this is through.
