25 Ludicrous Conspiracy Theories People Actually Believe
“Conspiracy theory” is a term that was originally a neutral descriptor for any claim of criminal or political conspiracy. There’s no doubt that the government will always find ways to control us and in many cases manipulate or brainwash us, too. There have also been enough recorded cases where conspiracy theories turned out to be more than theories. Nowadays, however, the term “conspiracy theory” has come almost exclusively to refer to any crazy theory that attempts to explain a historical or current event as the result of a secret plot by conspirators of almost superhuman power and cunning. Examining and analyzing the facts is always good but in these 25 cases we feel like some dudes have literally overdone it. What do you think?
20. The Clinton Chronicles
The Clinton Chronicles isn’t just a random theory but an actual film from the mid-â€˜90s that accused Bill Clinton of a range of crimes.

Thank God I wasn’t on it!
