(NaturalNews) You’ve probably heard about them or read some of them – some of the “wild conspiracy theories” that attempt to explain world events. To many people, they are just that – wild stories with no basis in rationality or fact.
The “mainstream” of society – pop culture, the media, political movements – tend to dismiss conspiracies as comical fodder, distractions that are little more than kooky sideshows offered by creeps and weirdos out there on the edge of what many consider “normal” existence.
As noted by Alex Proud, writing at UK’s Telegraph:
You’d have your mate who, after a few beers, would tell you that the moon landings were faked or that the Illuminati controlled everything or that the US government was holding alien autopsies in Area 51. And you’d be able to dismiss this because it was all rubbish.
Look, you’d say, we have moon rock samples and pictures and we left laser reflectors on the surface and… basically you still don’t believe me but that’s because you’re mad and no proof on earth (or the moon) would satisfy you.
But, he asks, what if the conspiracy theorists were right after all – at least, right about some things?
He goes on to mention “the big one” – the Kennedy assassination, which he admitted was never easily dismissed. Still, finding out “the truth” would likely prove nearly impossible, as any access to information that might refute the government’s official story and the investigative Warren Commission report, which concluded that a single shooter – Lee Harvey Oswald – and not a trio of CIA-sponsored assassins, Mafia members or any others, was responsible for killing the president.
