It is a confusing world out there and conspiracy theories may uncover the truth. M.E. Brines, in The Truth About Conspiracy Theories, adds his voice to a range of facts and events that have been questioned over time. Some people believe that the U.S. Air Force covers up an extra-terrestrial presence at Area 51 in the Arizona desert. The aircraft test site has been shrouded in mystery for many years. In the world of politics, some people believe that there was a group behind President Kennedy's shooting. It is hard to accept that one man could change world events in such a drastic way. Lee Harvey Oswald pulled the trigger, but who influenced him to do it? Perhaps the mob, Cuba's Castro regime or even the CIA had an interest in assassinating the President? The author even goes into biblical text and ancient Roman history for examples of conspiracy theories. Individuals, institutions, and governments do have their own motives for suppressing awkward, sinister, or embarrassing truths. This opinion piece explains that conventional wisdom should be taken with a grain of salt.

It is easy to just accept conventional thought and go on with our daily lives. But M.E. Brines in The Truth About Conspiracy Theories challenges the reader to question their beliefs. He presents a good argument for the validity of conspiracy theories. "People dismiss evidence for conspiracy theories because it contradicts their worldview." Much of what the author writes is controversial and that is exciting to the imagination. The pamphlet is brief but it shows how the source of information on the news and in history books can be compromised by corruption or personal interest. Take a bit of time to read this author's opinion and look at world events from a different point of view.
