A conspiracy is merely an agreement between people to do something illegal. People are convicted of conspiracy all the time.

For example, watching the entire mainstream media obscure the PG evidence with mosaics and cropping, or ignore it completely, is what I would call a massive conspiracy to obstruct justice.

Also, the term 'Conspiracy-theorist' first known use was in a official CIA document, it was referring to people that held alternative theories than that Oswald acted alone.

Nice post, and your use of Rules for Radicals Rule 12 is exactly what we need to think of when we conduct investigations such as this. I've literally just posted about Barrett Brown and I've posted before about how we must remain an anonymous collective force if we are to succeed in this most difficult of tasks.

For those too lazy to read walls of text, the documentary The Conspiracy Theory Conspiracy is a good starting point.

I would have thought reading an article in 10 minutes is easier than watching a 2 hrs 10 mins documentary (and THAT'S the starting point?)... but thanks for the link I will check it out.

Yes, but it's still a lazier way of getting the info. Putting on audio people can do other stuff while they listen to the info.

How is it possible that both liberals and conservatives are simultaneously convinced that 1984 is happening right now...???

The great awakening. Hopefully all sides of the political divide will wake up to the fact they have been deliberately tribalised ("you red tribe, me blue tribe") - in order for the power Elites to play a grand game of Divide and Conquer.

Its time for the schizophrenia of the last year to subside and people to come together against the true enemies.

I hope so as well. I'm there for my fellow countrymen and hope the same is true for them. But the divisive, us-vs-them rhetoric of our new president does not have me feeling optimistic about such unity...

because those labels are meaningless now?

the real dichotomy facing us is between authoritarian and libertarian, and you get those extremes in all political groups

sadly the authoritarians have been taking over for some time... time for some liberty to restore balance

How should we refer to people who believe in elaborate secret plans based on flimsy evidence and faulty logical reasoning?
