If some certain You-Know-Who organizations/established institutions want to destroy the Bitcoin, shouldn't the most effective approach be......taking out its biggest exchange??

Well, I wasn't referring to online wallet services. I meant http://www.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/comments/j4t58/3rd_largest_bitcoin_exchange_has_lost_its/

I love conspiracy theories (or hypothesis which almost all are in my mind), but...

It strikes me that the enemies of Bitcoin, so far, could rest on their heels and allow incompetence, naivety, exhaustion, etc to do the job.  Occam's razor suggests to me that factors such as these are responsible for the most severe issues...so far.

Bitcoin users will continue to do themselves in until smarter (obviously not book smart, we have enough fo those) people come in and start playing the BTC game.

That's Hanlon's razor, not Occam's razor.

Well...sorta...but one of the things I neither detect nor would suspect of the entrepreneurs involved in the Bitcoin world at this time would be 'stupidity'.  OTOH, very bright people do stupid things under various conditions.  So I'll agree.
