Quote of the Day - Alan Moore

I previously encountered this marvelous quote from British graphic novel author Alan Moore (best known for authoring V Is For Vendetta) a few years ago but neglected to or was unable to determine at the time its author. Regardless, I loved it immediately as I grasped it's essential truth... that man is not in control and cannot be in control no matter how much he tries and no matter how much power the Tin Foil Hat crowd attributes to mysterious malevolent men. From that time until now I never really forgot it aside from forgetting the entirety of its specific wording. I was in a friendly online debate/discussion tonight and was reminded of this gem of wisdom. Now I don't at all agree with Moore in regards to the last sentence of the quote. The world is indeed rudderless in so far as much as man is concerned, but the world is not the least bit rudderless to its Creator who reigns sovereign in this universe.
"The main thing that I learned about conspiracy theory is that conspiracy theorists actually believe in a conspiracy because that is more comforting. The truth of the world is that it is chaotic. The truth is, that it is not the Jewish banking conspiracy or the grey aliens or the 12 foot reptiloids from another dimension that are in control. The truth is more frightening, nobody is in control. The world is rudderless."
