If you ever want to feel like a 2000iq super genius, find the least viewed Sandy Hook conspiracy and Trump Russia collusion videos you can manage and listen to them at the same time.

a corporate, romantic or polical take over starts with members of the team dissenting and creating a conspiracy to undermine you and take your position, so unfortunately they are a fact of life

You have little credibility to begin with by talking in the CORRUPT TERMINOLOGY THAT WAS DESIGNED FOR OBFUSCATION, AND HAS DONE SO FOR 56 YEARS—– Deepspin has set the terminology trap before every false flag event.

Minimum wage is anti small business and reduces job opportunity and growth for poor people.
Climate change which they called global warming the other day is fake science.
The 28 years of bush, clinton, bush, obama, is a stain on human history that Trump will remove!! MAGA!! Q! WWG1WGA!

I think the majority of conspiracy theories are actually irrational. It usually just boils down to the simplest most plausible argument.

Terrorists hijacked commercial airplanes and flew them into the world trade centres on 9/11.

Simple, very plausible. Especially since their was a prior attack on the World Trade Center back in 94.

400,000 NASA employees with 4000 companies and Billions of dollars over ten years got the first man on the moon.

Simple, and very plausible.

Every large celestial body in space is a sphere. So the Earth 🌍 is a sphere.

Simple, and very plausible.

Conspiracy theories are ‘irrational’ not rational. They involve a lot of denial of facts and layers of speculative arguments that usually have no evidence.

All this applies except to flat earth. Flat earthers actually are crazy and stupid. They’re well informed about their flat earth nonsense but that doesn’t make them smart

I would've uploaded exactly this kind of content if I were top 1% of the top 1%.
This is the smartest and most clever way of brainwashing awakened people back to the illusory world of set up by the illuminati. This will also create more skepticism within the ones who blindly ridicule conspiracy theories.

They play this game too good for most us to realize it. They're master minds and their biggest weapon is their ability to shape our perceptions, thoughts and beliefs. They're the illuminati, one can't expose by simply exposing them.

Rational to believe conspiracy theories? Are they assuming that humans are primarily rational thinkers? Rather than intuitive thinkers (using their common sense, best judgment, intuition and instincts), where they simply common sensed their way to conclusions and opinions that the feel certain are true (without necessarily having done any research or deep rational thought). Did someone think that rational = sane? Because to quote Adam Curtis "only 2 groups in society behave in a rational self interested way in all experimental situations. One is the economists themselves. The other, psychopaths."

Talking about conspiracies theories and smashing them in one category it's not correct. Some conspiracies theories have a lot of evidence which is coherente and backed up buenas facts or/and scinece but other conspiracies theories have terrible evidence.

Only 11% think 9/11 was a inside job. Thought it'd be closer to 30%+
I saw somewhere once that 60% of people thought JFK was part of something bigger than a simple assassination when it initially happened

What is the offer on the table here. Trust or reform your Government? Do we need to be anti CT to understand what that means, no. The difference people have is how to do it and those circles over lap greatly. Read Propaganda by Jacque Ellul. Act locally think globally.

"How do Conspiracy theories work?" The way this question is structured is more focused on the cognitive response to information in a particular domain. It neglects to address the historical net of events that informs the group. Actually if we were to try to refine the historical events(class relations, social relations, economic relations, Institutional relations) in what some would observe as heirarchy of interelations with their own self governing structures the government and economic Conspiracy could stand next to almost any American below the middle class with the same grievences. Subjegation, opacity of law, racism, general feelings of paranoia, alienation, sickness. So this is not a question of Conspiracy or Non Conspiracy it's much more complex. History, Law, Policy, and Economics do not exist in the world without their own ill intent or catastrophe built into its legacy. Ill intent could be opacity, or intentional misinformation or misinformation being simply built I to the Economic motivation. My central argument is it's not hunky dory it's far from it. Most people a very small minority don't believe in any conspiracy theory and those people are usually very very insulated from the subjects I've mentioned above. The rational way of looking at it is try to refine the language down about 9/11 to it's essentially points, which are misinformation a catastrophe and economic interest has been a part of war profiteering before. Look at the 100 Hadden Orders we put on Iraq and read how we got them to "accept" them. Watch Wendy Browns lectures on Walls and Neoliberal Financing. I mean the top 1 percent are the majority investors and the have their wealth spread into almost every large company you really think the demos being sovereign is not an issue for them?

it is so frustrating to argue with a conspiracy theorist, since everything you say, every proof you show is just part of the conspiracy… once you become a conspiracy theorist it's hard to come out

Somethings going on with the climate but one thing that will only be admitted when it's too late is the fact weather manipulation experiments have been going on since the either 30's or 50's so where are they today with it???? Then if you think your vote matters ha ha ha let's see you get to choose between already chosen for you candidates that will do the federal reserve and Israel's bidding! YOUR GOVERMENT IS A LIE THAT CONTROLS THE MAINSTEAM MEDIA THAT IS BRAINWASHING YOU!!!! A TELEVISION PROGRAM IS CALLED A PROGRAM BECAUSE ITS PROGRAMMING YOU! which today is dividing the people to conquer the people!!!!!

The same people who don't believe in climate change have no trouble believing the Qanon conspiracy that JFK Jr. faked his own death and is secretly working with Trump to purge "evil doers" from government.

THE JEWISH "INTELLECTUAL" DISMISSES CONSPIRACY THEORY?! NO CONSPIRACY THERE!! LOL JK BUT THE ISSUE IS- THAT PROPAGANDA IS THERE TO DISMISS ANY QUESTIONING OF OFFICIAL MAINSTREAM NARRATIVE FROM AT&T , VIACOM , ASSOCIATED PRESS– WHICH IS A MASSIVE CONGLOMERATE OF TRIANGULATING AGENCIES OF MEDIA AND IN SOME CASES COMPETING NEWS AGENCIES HAVE THE SAME TEXT. CASS SUSTEIN, HAS SLANTED HIS WORK TO DISMISS THE WORD CONSPIRACY ITSELF BY ATTACHING THEORY. CONSPIRACY IS A CRIME . CONSPIRACY IS REAL. CONSPIRACIES DO EXIST . ALL CONSPIRACY MUST BE INVESTIGATED AND UNTIL PROVEN IS A THEORY. CONSPIRACY FACT DOES EXIST AND IT SEEMS TO BE A SELECTIVE USE ONLY BY THE REIGNING AUTHORITY ON A SAID TOPIC. CASS SUSTEIN IS A PARROT . AND I THINK HE'S RH+ . HOW DO I KNOW THAT ?
