For some interesting background on the term conspiracy theory, this post (h/t Mark Tokarski) ties it to the CIA’s attempt to control/suppress skepticism regarding the Kennedy assassination, probably one of the most significant events of the 20th century.

The Boston bombing is, for the most part, in our collective rearview mirror. Glaring misinformation about the MIT cop who was killed never got major media traction, and therefore faded from thought, but not, for those interested, from the scary conspiracy petri dish known as the internet.

This article from looks at how badly the initial story of Sean Collier’s death fell apart, and the similarity between this odd cop slaying and the one Lee Harvey Oswald was accused of.

In a few months, we will mark the 50th anniversary of Kennedy’s assassination. What could have been, we will never know.

    The beauty of totalitarian government is the absence of conspiracies.*
