I agree. Conspiracy is no longer a vocab word, but a political label or propaganda tool.

perhaps it has occured to you that some people do not become shaken out of there indoctrinated beleifs unless there is an event that threatens them enough to wake them from there "comfy" lives and question things or even give them reason to Change. now u treat this threat as a permenant affliction, like it is a indication of a mental "problem" instead of a lesson (albeit a painful one) to be learned from life(unboubtedly there are those who may not adapt to a threat that shook them from there levels of comfort if it was so great ) but i would be willing to say the one's who did adjust (wether it be a result of a threat to finance, relationships, or any belief you held dear and was changed) may wind up with much more widsom than those who never had to as long as this jolt increased there curiosity in the truth (as opposed to sending them into a angry spiral of revenge, or drug addiction) and this search for "the truth" is unbiased , critical and driven from the heart's intention.
you probably don't even know what i just said
