Conspiracy Theory: The Robertson Screwdriver

The Robertson Screwdriver is the best in the world. If the world of tools and fasteners were anything like the world of media recording, Robertson would be compact discs and Phillips would be cassettes. Flathead screws would be vinyl records.

What are the market forces and invisible nefarious plots that prevent this system from taking its rightful place as the default screwdriver? I personally think that Knights Templar are behind it. The religious symbolism of the Phillips screw head is undeniable. The next time you are in a church, look around for screws and you will probably see that they are Phillips. The Robertson screwdriver represents progressive secularism and common sense.
