Conspiracies exist, aka corruption secretly and openly collaboratively plan their scams, social engineering, manufactured consent, psyops, crisis events, military/police state, and tyranny. To pretend they don't is daft. To let others' opinions of you deter you from analyzing them by demonizing the concept is also daft. Censorship is employed to hide the actual open conspiracies presented by government, NGOs, think tanks, corporations, banksters, military, scientism "experts", the judiciary, etc etc etc - all levers of power.

Many conspiracy are true, but many more aren't. The problem is they don't use empirical data nor identifiable sources nor repeatable studies to justify their point. I agree censorship is a bad solution because they actually might be onto something, but one cannot just give them credit without proper sources.

Nonsense.

Most conspiracies about power and authority have at least one firm foot in the truth.

Every secret agency, corporate board room, think tank, etc - they're all conspiring to fuck us over and suffer the least losses. Being secret, private, or proprietary is one of their shields. They have countless other tools and weapons too.

Yes there are a lot of stupid disinfo conspiracies out there to confuse and muddy the waters. That's VERY intentional.

One can look at the systemic patterns of abuses without sources. They're so brazenly open about it all that sources aren't impossible to find on most matters.
