lt is the contention of the author that the major events of the past, the wars, the depressions and the revolutions, have been planned years in advance by an international conspiracy. This view is called The Conspiratorial View of History, and it is definitely not the view held by the majority of historians today. The more traditional view is called The Accidental View of History, and it holds that no one really knows why events happen - - they just do.

Veritas Books: The Unseen Hand Ralph Epperson

Description

James Warburg in his book, ‘The West In Crisis’, explains the Accidental View thus: "History is written more by accident than design, often by the wholly irrational acts of madmen."

Another who has offered the Accidental View as the explanation of the major events of the world is Zbigniew Brzezinski, President Jimmy Carter's National Security Advisor. He has written: "History is much more the product of chaos than of conspiracy...increasingly, policy makers are overwhelmed by events and information."

But there are those who disagree with that position. Franklin D. Roosevelt, has been quoted as saying: "In politics, nothing happens by accident. If it happens, it was planned that way."

If harmful events are planned, it follows that the people, who were about to suffer through the scheduled event, would act to prevent the event from occurring, if they knew about it in advance. The people expect government to protect them from harmful events.

But if the events still occur after the government officials had been expected to prevent them, the government officials have failed in their assigned duties. There are only two explanations as to why they failed:

1. The events overwhelmed them, and could not have been prevented; or

2. The events were allowed to occur because the officials wanted them to occur.
