It is my belief that these people either are afraid to even entertain a different theory other than the one given to them by the people they believe to be their protectors/providers/etc.

I have seen for many years that the word conspiracies are presented in the media that such beliefs / people are silly/crazy (ever since 2001/9/11? at least). The whole word is associated as something negative.
People don't want other people thinking they are such people then of course.
So my conspiracy is that those who have power/control with the help of the media makes us belief such people are silly/crazy/odd.
Just look whenever you Q the official story (as you said), you feel like being attacked where you often must defend yourself and where emotions can get high.
As a result I also don't want that to happen so I try to discuss my personal belief or at least whenever I question things I keep them more for myself, feeling it's not worth it (1; you don't make them think otherwise and your personal relation with others can get damaged).

It just seems to me that many people like Occam's razor type of thinking?
The simplest explanation is usually the correct one?

My mother will not hear of the 9/11 conspiracy. I think she feels if she accepts 9/11 was an inside job the world becomes a whole lot scarier.
See, this is what gets me.
There is NO EVIDENCE of any conspiracy, none.
Why is it that you demand you are absolutely right, while offering no evidence at all to prove a conspiracy?
Again, generational problem.
What you call "evidence" you mother would probably call bull*hit (although she probably wouldn't say that of course lol).

People dont want to know that their government is just as evil as every fascist regime that ever existed
Ratlines (Operation Paperclip) is a good one to use as an example, because we have enough proof that the conspiracy to smuggle Nazi's out of Europe is indeed a fact.
