Interesting thread. The opening statements include:
"For every major event, there's a conspiracy theory to explain it. And though the temptation is to treat it as harmless paranoia, a new study finds mere exposure to such information can have serious social consequences."
Of course exposure to conspiracy theories can (but not always) have serious consequences because when people wake and realise the financial system, for example, has been engineered and devised in such a way to rob the weakest in society and make the 1% at the top richer, then people will revolt and demand change. This is what happened in the French Revolution, for example.
In other words, the point I'm making is that just because something is labelled a conspiracy theory, it does not automatically follow that the theory is not actually a fact.
Some conspiracies are a fact.
