In the News (Thu 18 Apr 19)

A conspiracy theory is a theory that defies common historical or current understanding of events, under the claim that those events are the result of manipulations by one or more secretive powers or conspiracies.
But because routine conspiracy theories are often simply allegations of covert action, and because these tend to be based on little or no solid evidence, the expression "conspiracy theory," in common speech is used to refer to allegations of collusion that the speaker considers unproven, unlikely, or false.

I dunno, when I saw that, it just looked like someone was saying that critics of corporate globalization are whacko conspiracy theorists (it is common for people to claim that everyone on the radical left is a conspiracy theorist, which is unfounded and kind of insulting..).
A lot of theories and subjects under the 'global conspiracies' heading actually only apply to the United States, for instance the Council on Foreign Relations, Nick Berg, and arguably the Bush Family.

 ABC Radio National - Background Briefing: 1 May  2005  - Conspiracy Theories
For example, something like the death of Diana; there’s loads of conspiracy theories associated with that, and these are quite fantastical conspiracy theories involving conspiracies between nurses on the scene, people driving pandas and so on.
And if you are a conspiracy theorist, then you’ll look for evidence and you’ll deal with other bits of evidence that come your way, in a way that’s consistent with that conspiracy theory.
But that means that today’s conspiracy is sort of gone tomorrow, and what I think is more noticeable is the sort of constant stream of conspiracy thinking, and conspiracy interest, and perhaps the individual ingredients, and therefore the individual answers that are provided aren’t really the point.

At the peak of the Enron scandal and in the aftermath of the attack on Afghanistan, a fascinating document surfaced in conspiracy circles that told of a bank-breaking Enron venture: A power plant the firm had partly built in India.
Also high on the possible planted evidence list is a spiritual manifesto for the Al Qaeda kamikaze pilots, which, to journalist Robert Fisk, sounds an awful lot like it was written by a God-fearing Christian.
Hijacker Oddities I. Little-observed in the fine print of the FBI rap sheet on the September 11 hijackers was a clumsily phrased disclaimer admitting that the Bureau's document wasn't, ahem, necessarily a final draft (with note: "It should be noted that attempts to confirm the true identities of these individuals are still under way").

 The Assassination of Marilyn Monroe by Mel Ayton
He alleged Monroe spent her final months as a highly unstable woman who was not in control of her life and was dependent on alcohol and drugs to combat her chronic insomnia.

Conspiracy authors bought into Carmen's uncorroborated stories because she was the person who could provide the most salacious details of the alleged RFK/Monroe "romance." Carmen is the source for the oft-repeated story of how RFK and Monroe visited a nudist beach and RFK was disguised in a wig and dark glasses.

Behind the list of complaints sent to the King of France, we perceive the clear determination of an aggressive mercantile class, anxious to sweep away competition—that of the Jews—now deemed intolerable.
Thus he derides the Leninist theory of imperialism, not because it fails to jibe with empirical evidence, but because it suggests that capitalists “run the foreign policies of their governments.
Here’s another similarity: just as porn is the underground literature of sex, conspiracy theories are the underground literature of power—lurid, often distorted, and inevitable as long as people such as Pipes are loath to acknowledge that power even exists.

 Why Did the Trade Center Skyscrapers Collapse? by Morgan Reynolds
Many will nod their head, OK, that does it and go back to watching the NBA finals or whatever, but I find this theory just about as satisfying as the fantastic conspiracy theory that "19 young Arabs acting at the behest of Islamist extremists headquartered in distant Afghanistan" caused 9/11.
The government’s collapse theory is highly vulnerable on its own terms, but its blinkered narrowness and lack of breadth is the paramount defect unshared by its principal scientific rival – controlled demolition.
Also supporting this theory is the fact that the uniformly neat ends of the blown perimeter columns are consistent with the linear shaped charges demolition experts use to slice steel as thick as 10 inches.

What the pollsters didn't ask was whether those 70 percent of Americans felt better believe that their president was killed by an elaborate conspiracy than by some isolated nut with a mail-order rifle and a head full of sour politics.
Even though the existence of a conspiracy may be what a lot of people want, both psychologically and emotionally, to believe for their own needs it does not mean that their instincts are wrong and by no means indicates that a conspiracy doesn't exist.
In essence, the Octopus Theory is the unifying factor taken to the ultimate extreme, the belief that everything in the world is the result of one vast and complicated conspiracy.

The proliferation of conspiracy theories is, at least in part, a result of the vast, amorphous forces controlling our lives.
The greatest, most evil and insidious conspiracy of all time might be the distraction of the human mind from the weightier matters of life.
Conspiracy in this case was simply a group of people (whether they are individuals who exercise control over media people or powerful media people themselves) desiring to control the outcome of this election, and then the consequent necessary planning in order to make their desired outcome a reality.

 9/11 Was a Hoax
This is no longer a wild conspiracy assertion; it is a fact, supported by thousands of other verifiable facts, foremost of which are:
In the weeks before 9/11, the U.S. received warnings from all over the world that an event just like this was about to happen, but FBI investigations into suspected terrorists were suppressed and those warnings were deliberately disregarded.
• The invasion of Afghanistan was presented as an attempt to pursue the alleged perpetrators of 9/11, yet it had been discussed for years prior to the tragedy and actually planned in the months before the attacks on New York and Washington.

While everyone may enjoy the thrill of a good conspiracy, the downside of this sort of reporting is more pain and confusion for terrorism survivors--as well as for the general public, who are left to wonder if any of these unsubstantiated theories are true.

Here he examines the nature of conspiracy theories and asks, "What makes otherwise intelligent people believe in phony phenomena?" and "Why is antisemitism so often its central feature?" Pipes usefully lays out a few hypotheses about conspiracy theories, and distinguishes them from actual conspiracies (which are real, of course).
The former have deviously hidden their intentions by posing as the persecuted, and groups as innocuous as the Freemasons and as imaginary as the Rosicrucians have dominated the world in ways that can be grasped only by the truly paranoid mind.
Somebody not being familiar with biblical interpretation might have a harder time coming to terms with the fallacies of conspiracy, even though it is equally prevailant in the secular and political realm.

According to The Lincoln Conspiracy, the man killed and buried as John Wilkes Booth, was probably James William Boyd, (a Confederate officer and prisoner of war, who, like Booth, had been hired by northerners to kidnap, and probably kill, Lincoln — the idea being to blame it on Southerners).
Another alleged significant discovery was made by a Ray Neff about 1956 and was detailed in Anatomy of an Assassination, by John Cottrell (Funk and Wagnalls, 1966) – a source cited multiple times in The Lincoln Conspiracy.
But, if the conspiracy and cover-up are true, of course, ABC and the other major media have obviously been active in the cover-up from the beginning and have a vested interest in its continuation.
