Having said that, i would say that even the most extreme of theorists sometimes have common ground with my own views.
Lets take a few examples here;
illuminati ? To be honest i do not believe that there is an illuminati, as i come from a biology/evolution background and my head tells me that humans, however power hungry, are in essence crap, and would tend to be too sloppy to put together a cabal as far reaching, and all encompassing as David suggests.
My own view is that presidents, prime ministers, and government leaders are transients..., they only last as far as the next election. The real power is held by small pockets of powermongers such as a handful of people at CIA, GCHQ, and suchlike. These people are entrenched, and can influence world events. They can, and have forced leaders/countries to be overthrown. They can and i believe have controlled the natural resources of the planet, such as oil for example. i also believe that they also control the manufacture, and distribution of the narcotics to fund their games
I also believe that the same people control the flow of information, and rig the press. When you pick up your morning paper, or look at your tv you read or watch to a more or lesser degree what they want you to read or watch.
When you have a small handful of people who have a stranglehold on your oil, technology, and information then who needs an illuminati.
These are not reptilians from the planet Draco, they are not shape shifting demons from another dimension, because they don't have to be,
They are humans, which unfortunately are far worse
Look at Belsen, Aushwitz, Sobibor, look at ethnic cleansing in Bosnia to see what humans are capable of.
Then look at Alan Dulles, Richard Helms, E Howard Hunt, and their present day ilk ; Not only do they have the capability, they also have the mindset to believe that they are doing the right thing, and the power /influence stop you from becoming aware of it.
Credo Mutwah, protocols, reptilians, blah de blah, its all window dressing, and isn't necessary.
Keep it simple
