The only conspiracy that matters is the conspiracy of the psychopaths against the rest of us.

Contrasting Several Evolutionary Hypotheses
psychopath is a unique and quite dangerous subgroup within our species.
He, or she, is capable of deadly manipulations executed with
unbelievably cold, calculated intellectual and emotional maneuvers.
Charming, lacking in empathy, guilt, responsibility and the normal range
of human emotion, they move among us with an often impeccable mask that
makes them virtually undetectable. There are several evolutionary
hypotheses which attempt to explain their behavior, however the best fit
is that they represent a cheating reproductive strategy, one geared
towards the production of many offspring for which they afford no long
Support for this thesis comes in a various forms. We
know that psychopaths are callous, deceptive, promiscuous, and
egocentric (Cleckley, 1941: 337-364). They are also mostly male: almost
four times as many more psychopathic men then women (Sigvardsson, et al,
1982). This makes them ideal for mating with many women and then
leaving them subsequently, once the deed is done, so to speak. It also
confers a psychological advantage in that they have the ability to
manipulate women by mimicking emotional attachment, or deceiving them
about resources they can offer. The same is also true for female
psychopaths, who can often create the impression of being in distress
which elicits more financial and physical support from the men they mate
with. There is a genetic basis to the trait, demonstrated in many twin
adoption studies (Viding et al, 2005 & Larsson et al, 2006: 221-30).
