There are many studies that already revealed that to cover-up an old-fashioned person to stay under some wrap just for a decade, at least less than 1000 people should be involved in that cover-up. If you want it to be a secret at least for a century, then the total number of people involved in that cover-up should be less than 125. But, unfortunately, usually, thousands of people are involved in existing conspiracy theories.
Cover-up- More Things To Know
If a conspiracy theory involves a few hundred people, then it will definitely collapse and this will happen rapidly. More than that, there are many big conspiracies related to science which are usually not sustainable. It has become common to dismiss the majority of the conspiracies theories. Along with these theories in most of the cases, the proponents were also dismissed. There are many viable requirements for a theory to be stated as a conspiracy theory.
There are many studies conducted on existing big conspiracy theories just to understand them. Some of the conspiracy theories which went under study are
- Believes around vaccines resulting in autism
- Climate change and its reality
- Conspiracy about the moon landing
- Cancer cure exists but covered up by big companies
Know More About Cover-up:
The studies mainly focused on an understanding number of people involved in these theories and how long they were been under cover-ups. The studies reported certain points on these conspiracy theories.
- If in case the moon landing was completely a hoax, then it would have revealed in at least 3 years. The reason behind this is, on an average 411000 NASA employees would have known about this and it will not take too long to get revealed with this huge number
- When it comes to the conspiracy and cover-up between vaccines and autism, it would have taken 3 years to 34.8 years to get revealed from the time it started
- If you think about climate change, studies report that it would have taken just 3.7 -26 years to get revealed
- Cancer cure cover-up? This suppression would have taken just 3.2 years to get reveled
These reports and calculations are completely based on the best-case scenario regarding these existing conspirators. The conclusion from these studies shows that conspirators were always good at maintaining the secrets. The best part is there were no external investigations were taking place.
How have Studies Taken Place?
These studies considered the probability of the conspiracies and cover-ups that were being revealed over time. They mainly considered three confirmed conspiracies that even included the US National Security Agency’s surveillance program. These studies also analyzed much forensic analysis scandal. By these entire studies, one thing is very clear that even mass cover-ups and conspiracies do occur and they fail to last long. There will be something or the other that comes up and reveals these secrets.
Some of the cover-ups and conspiracies seem harmless to mankind but others are not. We can easily believe moon landings and when it got faked, there is nothing to worry about. But misinformation regarding vaccines can be serious and fatal too.
