The terms â€œconspiracy theoristâ€ and â€œconspiracy nutâ€ are used frequently to discredit a perceived adversary using emotional rather than logical appeals. Itâ€™s important for the sake of true argument that we define the term â€œconspiracyâ€ and use it appropriately, not as an ad hominem attack on someone whose point of view we donâ€™t share.
According to myÂ Websterâ€™s Unabridged Dictionary,Â the word â€œconspiracyâ€ derives from the Latin â€œconspirare,â€ which means literally â€œto breathe togetherâ€ in the sense of agreeing to commit a crime. The primary definition is â€œplanning and acting together secretly, especially for a harmful or unlawful purpose, such as murder or treason.â€
It was in this sense that Mark Twain astutely observed, â€œA conspiracy is nothing but a secret agreement of a number of men for the pursuance of policies which they dare not admit in public.â€
