The conspiracy theory in most of these was who was responsible for it as opposed to natural causes:

Subhash Chandra Bose, who organised the Indian National Army, dies from a plane crash and conspiracy theory is reported within hours of the news of the death.

Government of India has instituted three commissions of inquiry, two of which confirmed the death in the plane crash but the third stated that Bose faked his own death. This report was rejected by the government without citing any reasons.

Thank you all for your posts. Digging into the 'for's and 'against's of some of these is really making for some cheap entertainment and sometimes satiating morbid curiosity.

Here's the against for the above conspiracy theory.

'Love Jihad'.

In Islam, a person of either sex marrying a Moslem has to convert first, along with a new firstname but talakh (divorce) or not, leaving the faith is punishable by death. The theory is this process has institutional support and gets encouragement.

Nassim Nicholas Taleb gives more examples.

There is renewed interest in this conspiracy theory as two days ago it was announced that 164 related secret files will be declassified.

This suggests the vast majority of conspiracy theories are bogus:

I'm not sure that this counts as a conspiracy theory, but I have my doubts about whether all types of recycling are worth it.

There's an environmental cost to transporting/processing recyclables that's often just plain ignored.

And there's a psychological cost with recycling that it's okay to generate a bunch of trash as long as you put it in the recycle bin. Nobody should feel like they are "saving the environment" by filling an entire recycling bin. :evil:

I'm going to state my own conspiracy theory.
There will be an acute diabetes drug shortage within 5 years. This theory arises from previous mentions of Medicaid costs ($245b) and an online article pointing out that 10% of the sick are causing 40-50% of the costs (80:20 rule sorta?) A fungal contamination sounds most plausible.

I can only assume that less than 10% of diabetics will die. The tiny blip would cause shipments to no longer be automatic. However, a week delay can be deadly.

The Trump-Putin conspiracy is getting rather interesting. Seth Abramson produced a good 50-post twitter mega thread about it with links to stories about each point.

It looks like Chris Steele may testify before a televised session of the intel committee. I don't have the slightest idea if it is true and I suspect it will be difficult to prove considering the main source of the information was found dead in Moscow. We shall see.

^ Hey look, it's the conspiracy theory I deem most likely to have been invented to cover up the conspiracy theory I deem most likely to be true. ;)

They can drum up all the evidence of Russia involvement that they want. What they'll never do is prove that it influenced the election outcome in any way because that argument hinges on the condescending implication that Bernie supporters were "duped" into hating Clinton. Nope. Sorry. We just hate Clinton. People like me, actual leftists, not centrists, hated Clinton since 2008. Her campaign in 2016 was garbage. Democrats were slimy cheaters. The media were blatant liars.

So I'll be curious to see if Chris Steele's testimony reveals how the Russians kept the Clinton campaign out of Michigan and Wisconsin. Or how the Russians made Donna Brazile leak debate questions to Clinton. Or how the Russians forced Clinton to make all those Wall Street speeches. Or how the Russians wrote internal DNC memos discussing elevating and legitimizing Trump as a strategy. Or how the Russians made Bill Clinton illegally electioneer in Massachusetts polling places. Or how the Russians made the US media invent "flying chairs" at a Nevada caucus. Or...

This is quite literally poking the bear. Neither the US/NATO or Russia actually care what the Ukrainians want.
In my opinion the side who is pro democracy and openness automatically has the moral high ground. It doesn't matter much if they benefit from it themselves. In this case it is the US and partly the EU.
At least, Putin doesn't pretend to care, he always states that he works for the interest of Russians and Russia.

^^ Yep, George Carlin said it best.

For me, it's 9/11 being a false flag inside job. No real evidence. Just fits my personal narrative and image of the American empire, and it's not like it hasn't happened before...

Daniele Ganser seems to have some solid points about this subject.

And I would had that what we learn about the holocaust is very unlikely to be true, but I fear that even here, this is outside of what we can talk about.
But I'm open to have my mind changed, and if someone wants to provide answer to the few points I have, and this forum is probably the only place where I might get answers.
