Yet another weird SF fan


I'm a mathematician, a libertarian, and a science-fiction fan. Common sense? What's that?

A Brief Note on Conspiracy Theories

It's very hard to keep secrets for very long. Someone (Bradley Manning, Edward Snowden, etc.) is bound to talk before long. What does that imply about the theories that THEY are covering up the evidence of the dangers of vaccines, GMOs, depleted uranium, etc.? Why is there no sudden discharge of incriminating emails?

I'm not a conspiracy theorist, but how do we KNOW that it's hard? We see X revelations, and are asked to choose between there existing either 1.01 * X conspiracies and 50.0 * X conspiracies.

I choose something around 1.1 or 1.5...but that's purely on hunch.

They're deliberately leaking some things to make you think that there's nothing else to be leaked.

Duh.
