 Conspiracy is defined as a group of two or more people coordinating action secretly for their benefit and to the detriment of others, usually the coordinated effort being a crime punishable by law. Conspiracy theory is a postulation of a crime committed by two or more people that haven'​t been accepted as true but is in the process of being evaluated. The modern use of the term is more pejorative. A conspiracy theorist is one who is crazy and worthy of ignoring. A free society such as the United States (since we hear it so god damn much) should appreciate a concerned citizen bringing evidence to the public stage that a small group of citizens committed a conspiracy to defraud the rest of the citizens. However, we in the West have had an education that instills first and foremost that authority knows best, and authority hates it when conspiracy theories are pointed their way. Not only do we trust the government thanks to our education, we cannot even think for ourselves because we were taught to repeat important thoughts, not cultivate our own brain power. The United States and the West might be a free-ish society, but when a conspiracy is afoot the citizenry is enept at communicating logically the fact of the conspiracy. Which explains partly why the status quo has the opinion it does of conspiracy theorists. Let's be honest; when that guy runs around like a chicken with his head cut off screaming about aliens, you didn't hesitate to think he had a screw or two loose. Unfortunately,​ this has become the image of the conspiracy theorist. It does not have to be this way. Conspiracy is defined as a group of two or more people coordinating action secretly for their benefit and to the detriment of others, usually the coordinated effort being a crime punishable by law.

-Yes, you have gotten to the ends of the internet to read about the lives of each 911 supposed hijacker. You have read countless hours about some of their dubious history in Florida with drug runners and government spooks (see Daniel Hopsicker'​s work ((http://​www.amazon.com/​s/​ref=nb_sb_noss?​url=search-alias%3Daps&​field-keywords=daniel+hopsicker+ )). What we see happening when you explain ​this obtuse fact to someone who hasn't reviewed the evidence is MASSIVE inferential distance. Inferential distance is the distance between to minds and their thought as it relates to one subject. One example would be a lifelong natural musician speaking to a non musically oriented person. There is so much the musician wants to reference from experience that is so foreign to the non musician he would only confuse him. The same is true for your conspiracy conversation with your friends on the back porch. ​+Yes, you have gotten to the ends of the internet to read about the lives of each 911 supposed hijacker.
