"The problem with conspiracy people is that they think 100% of everything is a conspiracy which only makes the problems of this world worse. Yes, there are conspiracies going on, and we should be aware, but when you believe that everything is a conspiracy, you become paranoid; and when you are paranoid, you are just as lost as those you are trying to awaken."
There are many things in this world that are going on that are indeed part of a grand web of conspiracy. However, there are little things that happen here and there that are unrelated to those actual conspiracies that we should all be aware of. Some things are not conspiracies, they are just things that happen. When you assume that everything you see is part of a conspiracy, paranoia steps in and now you look the fool. Paranoia is not helpful, but being alert is. Just be alert to what's going on, but don't be paranoid about it.
Conspiracy = something going on that is secretive, hidden from public view, usually some sort of agenda is involved, has been proven or exposed
Conspiracy Theory = the assumption that something secretive is going on, something that has not been proven or exposed
