It's almost like there is some government entity that makes up conspiracy theories for people to believe in to distract them from uncovering something tangible and real that might actually enrage the public.




That's what sports, movies, US weekly and reality tv is for.

Right

But there are people who are interested in politics. And with subcultures like ours there are always going to be a few conspiracy theorists. They're usually crazy and wrong about 90% of what they post. But the other 10% might have some substance and the conspiracy theories discredit that 10%

The mere existence of conspiracy theories has the ability to silence legitimate criticism of government under the guise of the critic being considered a lunatic.

For an analogy, consider the birthers. A lot of birthers may have had legit criticisms of Obama but who is going to listen to a birther?
