It always amazes me how often we attack others for acting like ourselves. Most people are no more misguided than yourself. Remember that before you randomly attach a label just so you can combine them into a group, they are just people. Forgetting that they are people by putting them in a group is just making it easier to hate them.

For the record though, I know people often misunderstand the true definition of “conspiracy theorist”. What a conspiracy is, is when two or more people work together to commit a crime, so a theory about a conspiracy would be a theory that two or more people have conspired to commit a crime. That means whether you believe that the government killed its own people, or a terrorist group from another country killed them, either way it is a theory about a conspiracy, and you are a conspiracy theorist for believing any such theory.

Bah! Labels! Life would be so much easier without labels.
