The father of modern Public Relations, Edward Bernays back in the 1920s encouraged a shift away from using the word Propaganda to disassociate the USA from Germany and instead use “Public Relations Department”.

Propaganda wasn’t a bad word originally but it turned into one.

So, they have a point. That’s what makes it tough – they do have a point.

Plus, we love puzzles. Very smart people often get involved in conspiracy theories. I’ve known more than a few Mensa+ level people who get wrapped up in them. [see Chomsky for modern example. Smart dude but sometimes… ]

It makes logical perfect sense when put together just the right way.

But… there’s missing variables. There’s ALWAYS missing variables that are outside of the Universe of their theories.

Since they’re inadmissible as evidence to their theory, they can’t be used to refute it.
