“Conspiracy theorists” more sane than those who throw the phrase around

A welcome article!


Psychologists and historians support what I’ve long believed:  A “conspiracy theory” may very well be a rational idea, while the intended use of the phrase, to insult, exclude and limit discussion, is irrational and often attended by fanaticism far more extreme than those people accuse conspiracy theorists of being.

The theory was coined as part of a well-documented CIA disinformation plan to discredit investigations into the Kennedy assassinations, and it continues to obscure investigations into many egregious acts of our government and corporations today.  Thankfully, because of the Internet, the numbers of Americans still under the spell of the phrase has dropped to only about 1/3.
