This week I'm posing a bunch of "what if?" questions to help you on your next story idea. Because the one you finished (and finished the query for) is just sitting, waiting for Query Con, and right now you're between projects. Right?
I saw this show about the dollar bill, and it quickly devolved into a diatribe against the Freemasons. While normally I kind of enjoy conspiracy theory rants, this time I lost my patience after about 15 minutes. I had to turn the thing off it annoyed me so.
I tend to be dubious about most conspiracy theories. Sure, there are powerful people out to take care of their own self interest, but I have a hard time with the concept of a group of powerful people working together for one world-taking-over goal. (Those who have the means are too selfish and too short-sighted, in my opinion.)
But what if I'm wrong?
What if there was a group of people who were working on world domination? What would their goals be? Would they be able to achieve them? Would we not notice?
