I agree. But not all conspiracy theories are without substance. Some theories are based on facts. The Wayfair allegations may be absolute rubbish or may be something else such as money laundering. Unless someone has been living under a rock then they would know the money laundering theory is not that far fetched. It is known the elite use modern art to launder money. That's why you see silly pieces of artwork with just a line on a canvas go for millions. It's just a front for laundering money. And there is of course the Panama Papers.
We should not fall for conspiracy theories, but we should not be stupid and fall for the information and narrative fed to us through the mainstream media.
Recently it transpired that Epstein had an island where unwilling people were coerced and forced to engage in abusive sexual acts. Many rich and famous people were implicated in this including Prince Andrew. Epstein was taken into custody awaiting a trial that could have potentially exposed many powerful people. Instead of going to trial it is claimed that Epstein committed suicide. Anyone who has reviewed the evidence will conclude that Epstein did not kill himself. He was killed in order to safeguard people more powerful than him. This is a conspiracy, but it is a conspiracy fact and not just a theory.
Keeping an open mind. Conducting research. Questioning the official story. Etc should not be shut down under the slogan of conspiracy theories or conspiracy nutjob. We have evidence of incidents that were regarded as conspiracy theories that were later proven to be true. E.g., Panama Papers, elite sex trafficking, wars based on false evidence, government surveillance through private phones/computers. These are just from the top of my head. If you can debunk these then go for it. I'm listening.
It is ridiculous to lump all conspiracy theories into one pile and discredit them all as a collective. Each theory should be taken on its own merit. Imagine if society lumps all allegations of crimes into one pile and judges them all as one. That's essentially what we are doing by lumping all conspiracy theories as one. Conspiracy theories are allegations of crimes. If there is enough suspicion and evidence then they should be investigated like any other crime. Currently Prince Andrew is wanted for questioning by US prosecutors and the FBI over the whole Epstein thing. Prince Andrew is refusing to hand himself over. Allah knows best if anything will ever come of this or if it will be brushed under the carpet like the Panama Papers and the lies of Saddams WMDs that has killed and maimed millions and destroyed and pillaged a whole nation. The WMDs lies were a conspiracy theory as well. Debunk that theory if you can.
