Pratchett on Conspiracy Theory: Name One Thing…
In Thud, Terry Pratchett nails conspiracy theory:

“Except he always gets to hear about ’em, and he never gets hushed up,” said Fred.
“I know you like to point the finger of scoff, Sarge, but there’s a lot goes on that we don’t know about.”
“Like what, exactly?” Colon retorted. “Name me one thing that’s going on that you don’t know about. There — you can’t can you?”
