2. A vintage conspiracy theory, depressingly similar to modern day conspiracy theories. Fluoridated water, vaccines and – of course – the Jews

3. “I’m just asking questions” is a popular defense emplyed by tinfoilers. After all, what could be wrong with that? Like, for instance, asking why no one reports on what really killed the dinosaurs, aliens!

4. National Review featured a short but important article about conspiracy theories in the Middle East
