20. Not necessarily so.
To begin with, not all the features have to be true of the same conspiracy theory.

And the idea that the conspiracy is initiated by, or "centers" on a group which allegedly initiated other conspiracies (#14), doesn't preclude other people from being auxilliary. The point of #13 is to describe the tactic taken when disinterested groups are cited as providing evidence that the conspiracy theory is not true; when this is pointed out, they are then, after the question arises, implicated in the conspiracy theory. It's not that everyone is involved, it's that anyone is liable to be incorporated into it if it serves the conspiracy theory under duress.
