There was nothing remotely conspiratorial in my post. You are mis-using the word and falling back on a robotic talking point loved by statists.
It is a conspiracy theory because you talk in such absolutes. As if individuals should not take accountability for their actions, but rather they were forced to do the wildly unethical things they did to comply with excessive regulation.

You don't create a crisis like this without multiple things going wrong creating a perfect storm. This is as much about free market participants acting unethically and unchecked as it is about market intervention. There were too many players within the system trying to game the system. And let's not act like they did this all because they were forced to gamble. They did it for self interest. This is about bad government AND bad people within the market. To say government intervention was the root cause of the problem excuses the problematic individuals within the system.
