I would say other.
I first got involved in conspiracies about aa year after 9-11.
I had just graduated highschool and had never really questioned any official narratives. But I was looking into 9-11 and started to have non
conspiracy questions. Such as "What would have happened if our military had failed to intercept Soviet jets in this manner" and "what have the
military done to make sure this doesn't happen again".
I started to notice that I was shamed for asking these questions. I was called unAmerican, a conspiracy theorists. I noticed others that didn't
exactly tow the line and take everything at face value with seeing no evidence were ridiculed by people on all sides.
Next thing you know, I was listening to coast to coast, alex jones, etc.
For me, it wasn't the issues like 9-11 that made me interested in conspiracies, it was the negative reactions to anyone raising any questions.
I figured if the questions were that dangerous that they needed to be shouted down, there must be something to it.
Ironically all of the mainstream people now claim to regret not asking more questions leading up to the Iraq war, yet they still ridicule anyone who
ask questions of officiaal deep state narratives (see Russian hacks or Syria chemical attacks).
