    Does it make sense?

    Hello!
    I would like to ask you if the following sentence makes any sense. Its out of the original context where an opinion of the speaker was explained. In the sentence bellow he makes a revision of his attitude.

    Considering this my attitude leads me to the conclusion, that there is hiddend support of many questionable things, including cheating and unfair behaviour.

    Is it possible to understand the message of the sentence?

    I will be grateful for any comment!

    I presume that hiddend is a typo for hidden.

    The sentence is rather tortured. Possibly because no action is ever taken against cheating and unfair behaviour, the speaker has concluded that there must be tacit approval for or at least a willingness to tolerate such things.

    The comma is in the wrong place.
    Considering this, my attitude leads me to the conclusion that there is..

    However, I don't see how my own attitude can lead me to a conclusion.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
