We’ve seen a number of internet conspirancies that have taken hold in the last few years – the flat earth one being an example which is, let’s face it, just stupid.
How do they take hold? Presumably it’s not just highly convincing YouTube videos. Isn’t it also that some people are pre-desposed to wanting to believe in a consipiracy – that the Government or illuminati or global elite wants to control us.
Briliant Idea #361 is a conspiracy theory that the Government or illuminati or global elite wants to control us by tricking us into thinking stupid, unfounded, illogical conspiracy theories.
I want to start a conspiracy that conspiracy theories are actually a conspiracy.
