You're right ITN.
To understand conspiracy is to learn how to make it work.
As a test of understanding, perhaps, go through all the mechanics of what it would take to pull the biggest trick on the world. People actually think that's easy.
Let this be an assignment for those who love the George Carlin comedy of conspiracies.
Start a hoax, a really big hoax, so big that it would cause you serious pain if you were found out.
That's your assignment.
May Allah be with you.
