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.
