Conspiracy Nation -- Vol. 2 Num. 42

("Quid coniuratio est?")


Item #1: If you are like me and are wondering, "Gee, where is that Barnes Review that I subscribed to? Why haven't I received my first copy?" -- I called, and the answer is that the first issue wasn't finally mailed until October 11.

In case you are interested, the Barnes Review will be offering a non-traditional, non-establishment, not-"politically correct" perspective on history. Why listen to people paid by the government to tell you what "history" is? Get a second opinion!

Also, for history buffs, recommended are (1) A People's History of the United States by Howard Zinn; (2) No More Lies: The Myth and Reality of American History by Dick Gregory.

Item #2: If you decide to cancel your Conspiracy Nation, although I am sad to see you go, I can understand that you may be very busy, or that Conspiracy Nation is depressing you too much. You can cancel at any time. But please, could you save me a lot of trouble and cancel by sending the one-line message to -- and not to me. If, after sending the cancellation message to, you somehow aren't cancelled after a couple days, then contact me and I'll see what I can do. But please, first try it via

Item #3:

There are several ways to get back issues of Conspiracy Nation and Conspiracy for the Day. Here are some current sites offering back issues (note that in the following, the information I have is subject to change and may not be entirely accurate):

  1. Send message "help" (no quotes) to This site has past issues of Conspiracy for the Day.
  2. Back issues of Conspiracy Nation, starting with July 1994, are available via anonymous ftp from ftp (cd pub/lists/conspire). For novices, "anonymous ftp" means you log in under the name "anonymous" then give your e-mail address as the password. Once you have changed directories to pub/lists/conspire, use the "ls" command to see what's there, then use the "get" command to get the file. Files may have a "Z" extension, which means you will have to use the "uncompress" command once they have transferred to your site.
  3. Selected back issues of Conspiracy Nation are available via gopher to (Marketplace --> New Paradigms Project --> Is Society Non-Pluralistic --> Conspiracy for the Day/Conspiracy Nation).
  4. Selected back issues of Conspiracy Nation are available via anonymous ftp to ftp (cd pub/vendor/a-albionic). Note that I have been personally unable to investigate this site, due to slight problems with the prairienet system.
  5. Back issues are available via World Wide Web at

I encourage distribution of "Conspiracy Nation."
