Grading Conspiracy

If you thought this is just another lame conspiracy website, you’re sadly mistaken. I’m going to make you work, or at least think.

Quotes related to conspiracy are featured in the sidebars of every page on this website. I’ve also given each quote one of three grades, as follows:

I agree with this statement.

I disagree with this statement.

I don’t know what to think!

Evaluating some quotes was easy, while others were more difficult. Did I make some mistakes? Of course!

Going back to square one, should I simply judge statements as truthful or non-truthful, or should I penalize statements that are essentially truthful but which still qualify as propaganda? What about truthful statements uttered by people who are best characterized as propagandists, or bald-faced liars? I’m not a big fan of Noam Chomsky, Alex Jones, or David Icke, but they do often make truthful statements.

To really understand a statement, you should examine both the statement and the source. You might also consider the medium. Was it published in the New York Times, for example? Finally, it helps if you can put the statement in its proper context?

Every time you see a quote on this site, please don’t assume I graded it correctly, because all of us can make mistakes. Spend some time pondering the statement and do a little research to help you figure it out.

It’s amazing how much conspiracy one can find in the simplest statemnts.
