Most people have a deeply held belief that large complex conspiracies involving many people are impossible. They have to be...it would be too difficult to pull off.
The logic is that so many people would have to keep their mouth shut, that if it really did happen someone would've eventually spilled the beans.
But ironically, it's this very logic that ensures large complex conspiracies can be perpetrated.
Because if and when these whistle blowers do attempt to spill the beans, and reveal the conspiracy, they are sure to be vilified, automatically dismissed as lunatics.
And they might be crazy...but if they're not, they'll be labeled that way anyway.
This is the ultimate marketing dilemma. Trying to spread an idea, that people are programmed to deem incredible is destined to fail.
So in a way, the bigger, the crazier, the more unbelievable a conspiracy is...the easier it is to pull off.
