Hi, I'm new to this forum but I've been a fan of Graham's work for several years. When it comes to conspiracy theories I don't lump them all together, sometimes they seem to fit the evidence much better than what the mainstream media is telling us but in other cases they don't. But I think the original meaning of "conspiracy" was two or more people working on the same plan in secret, so I certainly do notice when I hear commentators saying things like "is this the truth or just a conspiracy theory?" So in other words apparently some people are redefining the phrase "conspiracy theory" to mean an allegation that isn't credible. Sometimes it sounds to me like "conspiracy theorist" is being used as the common 21st century parlance for what in times past would have been referred to as a muckraking journalist, or anyone who questions authority. What about the allegation that 9/11 was carried out by Al Qaeda acting alone without help of any kind from anyone in the military industrial complex? How would that not be a conspiracy if we go with the original definition of the word? And if anyone claims that the Nazis carried out the Blitz with the help of a gasoline additive from American corporations does that fall into the conspiracy theory category? Why or why not?
