With all due respect, Nick:

No, to determine truth, we collect evidence, analyze it as
scrupulously as possible, and draw conclusions closely tied to
it. All else is fantasy and guesswork, such as the evidence-
untainted conspiracy theories which apparently you find more
fascinating than things that can be demonstrated to be true or
are at least arguably so.

Wishing it - or fashioning romantic paranoia around it - doesn't
make it so. And worse: those sorts of cartoon fantasies distract
us from the world's actual problems and horrors which urgently
demand our attention.
