Both conspiracy theories and the attempts to debunk them are a minefield of complex ideas that are affected by poor research, personal bias, denial, deliberate disinformation and cherry picking of information. This video offers a detailed study of the subject matter, based on extensive exploration of available documentation. Enjoy. Written, edited and narrated by Rob Ager.

Do you like large, ripe, and tasty cherries?

Cherry tree conspiracies
 
Cherry trees aren't the only trees in the garden.
Apples and oranges, pears and pomegranates;
 
All come with fragrant flowers to interest the bees.
Keep in mind the podded vines and the mushy peas.
 
Remove the dots in your eyes and cross your tea leaves.
Exploring the garden should never be just about me, me, me.

Conspiracy theories are everywhere. All it takes are a couple of individuals or more to come up with a plan, whether secret or not, and implement it. Corporations are filled with conspiracy! Boards of directors making plans for profit. This makes them 'theorists'. Doesn't it? Sometimes, even the best plans fail. Perhaps, the negative connotations generated from the social definition are a bit paranoid. No one really likes their dirty laundry made public. When that happens the gnashing of teeth begins. 

 

Good video, OP! Nice find.

Good video on keeping things straight within the genre of Critical Thinking.

 

A recent current affair mentioned on another thread caught the eye. Conspiracies involving little green men.
