If you believe in a shadow government, it seems likely that you would actually see a goverment shutdown as part of the conspiracy. (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

Is this another shadow fact? --MauroVan (talk) 09:33, 7 October 2013 (UTC)

I guess Randal is only right as long there is only ONE group involved ;-). --DaB. (talk) 11:01, 7 October 2013 (UTC)

Randall knows exactly which group is in control, but has been forced by them to leave their name completely off of the aforementioned list. 13:25, 7 October 2013 (UTC)

I removed the words 'Self-proclaimed' from the description of Scientology. It's so vague to be meaningless. Aren't most religions and churches self-proclaimed? Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, etc all started with somebody claiming secret knowledge. It should either be applied to all religions, or none. 13:50, 7 October 2013 (UTC)

Is "Sincerely, A Concerned Citizen" really a Half-Life 2 reference? The phrase is generic enough that it actually appears before Half-Life 2 was released (example). -- 15:21, 7 October 2013 (UTC)

Agreed, people have been using the "Concerned Citizen" phrasing for years. Mattflaschen (talk) 17:41, 7 October 2013 (UTC)
It's not just the wording, but the context, so it does seem to be a reference. 18:22, 7 October 2013 (UTC)
The context being that of somebody concerned about their government? That seems a wee bit broad to be a contextual reference. 03:01, 8 October 2013 (UTC)

Wow! The actual group secretly running the government is so powerful they had themselves removed from the explanation table, apparently! (There's no Trilateral Commission entry right now.) Imperpay (talk) 16:29, 7 October 2013 (UTC)

Fixed. :) Mattflaschen (talk) 17:41, 7 October 2013 (UTC)

No mention of what an open letter is? 04:08, 8 October 2013 (UTC)
