I am retired and particularly interested in the intellectual origins and history of contemporary conspiracy-oriented organizations and their assertions.  25+ years ago I began requesting FBI (and other agency) files and documents pertaining to more than 2000 persons, organizations, publications and events (both right-wing and left-wing).  I have since received more than 400,000 pages of documents.

Purpose of Conspiracy Theories
The actual purpose of political conspiracy theories is considerably different from what a first reading of any theory might suggest. The underlying dynamic at work is to create an enemies list -- i.e. individuals and organizations whom should be perceived as "enemies" not honorable opponents, and then be demonized, vanquished, and rendered impotent.
