Interesting that people really belive that any suspicion of conspiracy is pathological. Yet, anyone that's worked in plaintiff side law (pharma liability for me) has seen conspiracy after conspiracy unfold in documents and in depositions. Payoff, lies, bribes. It happens all day.
The manhattan project involved tons of people, was the single largest use of electricity in the country at the time, and was kept so secret that even the white house didn't know about it. Powerful people with the means to do so will work in secret for their own interests.
Northwoods, mockingbird, mkultra, paperclip, all real, widespread, and admitted by the people who did it. People today belive that this all stopped for no reason. The idea that suspicion of conspiracies is inherently pathological is something that is very useful to power.
The idea that hexavalent chromium was contaminating Hinkley was a conspiracy theory. So also with asbestos. Lead paint. Silica. All of these now fully accepted and verified abuses of working people began as "conspiracy theories". Ask the guys in Libby Montana.
People really go on reddit 1 time, instantly agree with whatever the TV says, and then think of themselves as avant garde rebel geniuses for having the most mainstream-accepted basic views possible. How bout - do some independent research, learn critical thinking, fuck man

Here's an example of a real, widespread conspiracy for you. There was a certain case that I did research for back when I was a legal researcher/paralegal for a medical liability/mass tort firm. It was a medication that was supposed to prevent heart attacks and control diabetes.
Turns out that what it really did was cause herst attacks and make diabetes worse. Imagine that. Thing was, they knew about this pretty early on. You see, they can do as many studies as they like privately until they get some that look good. Then use those to get approval.
In addition to that, they have basically pet doctors who are willing to lie. These doctors organize conferences where they shill the medication. Real nice ones with five star dinners and shit. And there were even straight up payoffs and sexual favors by pharma rep girls.
