For some reason the subject of the Abraham Lincoln assassination popped into my head this morning. Personally I believe that the official story is a cover up. That's right, it's all a lie, but you might be surprised where the true conspiracy lies in this particular case.
The cover-up was not perpetrated by the quote powers that be, but in fact put forth by the culprit himself John Wilkes Booth. You might think that this doesn't make sense, but believe me it does. It's not that Mr. Booth didn't do it, he did, it's the reasoning behind the action where the official story falls apart, moreover Mr. Booth probably wasn't entirely aware of the true reasoning behind his actions himself.
John Wilkes Booth spent his entire life living in his brother's shadow. His brother was a famous actor while Booth, also an actor, was often shoved off to the side. This is not only metaphorically accurate, but literally because in their childhood their father often pushed John out of the family photographs.
The official story that John desired to kill Licoln because he sided with the South is not entirely true. While John might have had some sympathy for the South, what he really wanted to do was prove himself the hero. After having spent his entire life being taught to believe himself the lesser of the two brothers John needed a way to prove himself equally, if not more, worthy than his brother. John wanted to be the hero, he wanted to be famous like his brother.
The real assassin here was not John Wilkes Booth, but was in fact the society that taught inequality. It was because John was taught to believe himself worth less to society that he sought to prove his worth. If society, and his family, had accepted John's equal value from the beginning John never would have felt the need to prove himself.
I submit that the same is true for many similar crimes. The Boston Marathon bombing for instance. The younger of the two brothers was considered the family favorite. The younger of the two had many friends and was considered more socially acceptable while the older brother felt isolated and rejected by society as a whole. He felt the need to prove his worth, he felt the need to prove himself the hero.
Ultimately the real culprit is the society that teaches inequality. The society that treats some as kings and others as slaves. There are many conspiracies and most of the time the conspirators don't even know that they're lying or why.
