"It is possible that the conspiracy-theory label has simply lost some of the power it once had," Wood writes in the journal Political Psychology.

 

"Even when someone's very first exposure to an allegation of political corruption is seeing it branded as a conspiracy theory, they are no less likely to take it seriously than if it is instead called a corruption allegation."

Somehow, the same stories regarding what CTers have been saying for decades has stayed the same.  These stories are reletively consistant in their repetativness. Lots of the stories are trash, of course.  But, I believe most people in the world if given half a chance can figure these things out for themselves.

Hegalian Dialectic:  Also known as Thesis Antithesis & Synthesis, Problem Reaction Solution, and Order Out Of Chaos. This tactic has been employed by rulers for quite some time.

Conspiracy is what makes the world go round. What is a secret society but a bunch of board directors deciding the direction of their ship. Are they pirates? Privateers? If they're pirates then they're independent. If they're privateers then they work under someone else's authority.

I think the experiment is flawed. Wouldn't it depend on the place? Using specific words in a court of law would certainly change the results. An online survey poll seems pretty flimsy as proof. A political arena also has their own definitions and connotations to consider. Most of what we learn comes from the media.
