28. "How many coincidences does it take to make a plot?" - Mae Brussell
"Don't be on the defensive. If they say it's a 'conspiracy theory', ask them 'what's your theory?' If they question your credibility, say 'I think the media is in danger of losing their credibility'. Speak only about what you feel confident speaking about. The questions you pose are just as important. This is no time to be meek and mute. Be positively and lovingly combative."

"At a certain point, the term 'conspiracy theory' becomes just an excuse not to do your homework."

"Those who most loudly disparage 'conspiracy theory' are most often the ones with the least knowledge of the actual evidence being presented."

Barrie Zwicker, Canadian media commentator and journalist
