You’re a lunatic. This is exactly what the term conspiracy theory connotes or, more precisely, is designed to connote. It’s intended to refer to the paranoid and delusional, the pathologically frightened and unrealistically suspect, the psychologically disenfranchised. The loon, the nut, the emotional outlier. It ends conversation in mid thought. It derails discussion and reserves for the trash heap of critical thinking subjects and issues that are vital for understanding and review.
What’s fascinating is that our history and the history of the world are replete with conspire cay facts not theories. Actual cabals and confederations designed to bring about an evil end. Doubt me? Try Johnson and the Gulf of Tonkin on for size. Oh, and there’s that JFK assassination moment. Oh, but sorry, I forgot. Lee Harvey acted alone. On three everybody: Right.
