It is better to be conspiracy analyst than conspiracy theorist. This should help viewing your statements in terms of Divine report card, which Quran explains as collective consequences of the working of the Law of Requital. It works when life is lived with toxins of treachery, calling Ummah while fighting each other, narrow self-interest, economic and religious corruptions, sectarian divides, internal strife, lacking education, science, research and knowledge repository, mindless rituals without consequences, etc. Living with such conditions nation starts cracking downward, losing their worth to become irrelevant to the mankind. Divine rule further follows and powerful nation overwhelms the weaker nation and subjugates them directly or indirectly losing its freedom and independence. Thus nation become what they inclined to seek. You said it all!
