What’s really behind conspiracy theories? https://www.cbsnews.com/news/whats-behind-conspiracy-theories/
The question should be not what is behind the conspiracy theory, butt who is behind the conspiracy theory?
It is an impossibility that Joe Citizen will ever know the inner most secret workings of the government. For all intents and purposes, it may be better if we don’t know.
I would guess that the corruption and backdoor dealings are astronomical. If the truth about the inner workings of the government where ever made public and the perpetrators were brought to Justice, 70% of the people in DC would be in jail.
In a nutshell conspiracy theories are initiated by some fools that have nothing better to do with their time then to invent or exaggerate an event that may have or may not have happened.
My definition of conspiracy theories is, a lot of bullshitters telling bullshit stories, hoping someone will believe them.
