Today, I’m going to talk about some actual American conspiracies, and how they were found out. You’ll notice that none of them were thwarted by conspiracists. None were found out by conspiracists. And none were proven by conspiracists. That is not how investigation works, because you can’t investigate something while denying what you are investigating. So let’s look at the reality of conspiracies in the US, and prove that conspiracy theorists have done nothing but harm to the world. Now this is not exhaustive, but it should be enough to be revealing of the reality of conspiracies and how they are discovered.
