I'm going to be very broad stroke and nasty here.
One reason so many people snicker at Conspiracy theories is the often simpleton level of sophistication of it's advocates. A quote form somone in a
book, ans particularly without the larger context of an argument, is meaningless.
Prominent people say a lot fo things that get printed and quoted. Sometimes they write whole books. With thousands of thing said, one can cherry
pick a remark or two and claim it reveals some secret of theirs.
Adolph Hitler wrote and said thousands of things. If I wanted to, I could present a case with trumped up evidence showing that he was humane and
People's actions and involvements, define who they are and what they
think. When you can provide along documented chain of events and activities of someone, backed up by the quotes of them and their cohorts, you begin
to have a case.
Oneliners mean little. At some point everyone says"I'm going to kill that guy." It doesn't mean they are premeditating murder.
Sadly, much I read on ATS is grade school level finger pointing silliness rather than research.
Producer James Cameron won an Oscar award as producer of Titanic. In his acceptance speech he announced:
"I'm King of the World."
No other evidence backs this assertion.
