Rambling About Conspiracy Theorists

Conspiracy is a part of the culture and the mythos of our lives. There are people who will theorize about something they doubt happened. Theorists will bring up their perceived truth and will advance that story. Everything from the Lunar Landing to the assassination of President Kennedy to even the events of September 11, 2001 have some conspiracy attached to them with some dark, sinister event that has some people’s imagination peaked to a hyper level.

The truth is important. Everyone is entitled to it. However some who advance conspiracy theories in my opinion come across as a know-it-all. They want to spread rumors and sometimes that slanders people and they propagate lies and do more harm than good. Everyone enjoys the intrigue of a mystery but conspiracies can just be that conspiracies.

Facts are facts but sometimes facts can be altered to advance an agenda or something more nefarious. In news the journalist should never make themselves a part of the story and the same should be said for someone who wants their lives to be a part of a thing bigger than them. Perhaps it’s a bit of narcissism or low self-esteem that causes people to say something didn’t happen the way everyone else remembers seeing it. Maybe there is a trust thing too.

P.T. Barnum once said there is a sucker born every minute and to those who advance conspiracies perhaps there is something to that.
