    I just watched The China Hustle on hulu. I can't tell if this is a conspiracy theory or true. Apparently a book by the same name- anyone familiar?

    I believe it is a documentary depiction of a real phenomenon.

    Of course, now that you've said that everyone just thinks that you are a part of the conspiracy.

    The great part about being a part of the conspiracy is that I can publicaly admit to it and nobody believes me.

    Missing from this is that part of the fuel for conspiracy theories is that, generally speaking, public officials have earned their reputation for deception and concealment. That obviously doesn't mean that truthers, birthers, antivaxxers, and QAnon'ers are right, obviously, but it's a powerful advantage for them to be able to rightfully point out that the "official story" has so often turned out to be bogus.
