A conspiracy website presents an argued viewpoint on some historical or current event or trend in the form of a conspiracy theory. These sites may present factual information mixed with speculation, commentary, and un-sourced claims reminiscent of tabloid journalism.
In some cases, the authors of these sites claim to have a source inside an organization with secret information. Many theories presented on such websites are not only contrary to the mainstream historical account, but they also contradict each other. The theories tend to focus on a specific cabal or entity that controls world affairs through shady power-plays and false flag attacks.
Understanding the theories
They also tend to focus on a specific group of people e.g. Reptilians, Grey Aliens, Jews, etc who are portrayed as the evil masterminds behind events and people in general. The tone used by such sites often resembles an “emotional” argument rather than a factual one, with many authors using language such as:
“We have a right to know what’s going on,” and “I’ll tell you this, they’re doing it to us and we have every right to know about it.”
The authors take a dramatic tone when presenting evidence in support of their theories e.g. “This is the end of your world as you know it”, “We are in hell right now” and “I would not be writing this without highly reliable sources that have proven themselves to me over many years”.
The authors will often use a lot of big words and scientific-sounding terms, even if their theories lack scientific credibility. The overall tone of the writing style is to make the reader believe that they are right, and anybody who opposes their theory is wrong.
The way the websites present their case using emotionally charged language and dramatic presentation make them appear credible at first glance but upon closer inspection, there are usually many logical fallacies in their reasoning, which should raise alarm bells for any intelligent reader.
Books related to the theories
In addition to Internet conspiracy sites, many books have been published which purport to expose a conspiracy of some form or another. This list is not limited to works by amateur theorists; for example, The Secret Team (1973) by US military insiders Fletcher Prouty and L. Fletcher Prouty, exposed various ways in which the CIA interferes with foreign policy at the behest of financial interests in the arms industry.
Please keep in mind that the list provided is nothing more than an overview, it does not provide any insight or analysis of the claims. You need to make up your own mind about the topic. The sites are known for their conspiracy theories. Some of them may be entertaining to read but do not provide any credible evidence or proof of their claims.
Their main arguments are usually false flag attacks with a very questionable chain of events surrounding them. They confuse coincidence with correlation and ignore all the evidence against their theories.
Please do your own research before believing anything on the sites, or any other site purporting to expose false flag attacks.
