In search of compelling, large-scale conspiracy theories

I’m currently developing a short film concept for potential production at some point in the future, and I’m in search of a really good, compelling, massive conspiracy theory.

I want something more shocking and systemic than TEMPEST, but less ridiculous than the Lizard People. It’s got to be something that the United States government would have a major interest in keeping secret, and I’d like it to not involve 9/11, the Kennedy assasination, or the moon landing.

Any ideas? What are your favorite conspiracy theories?

  1. There’s the Philadelphia experiment where the Military was testing a type of inter-dimensional cloaking device on a battleship. The battleship disappeared with all of the crew, only to reappear a few days later. Some of the crew members were trapped in between walls, others I’m fairly certain were halved. It’s vaguely a government conspiracy but mainly a military conspiracy. I’ll ask some of my friends here who were my classmates in my Bigfoot class, they might remember more.

  2. Ooo, that’s a good one.

    Its Wikipedia page also led me to alleged false-flag operations and the Phantom Time Hypothesis.

    Plus: I don’t know if you realize how lucky you are to be able to utter the phrase “my Bigfoot class,” but you are very, very lucky.

  3. Don’t even get me started on fluoridating public drinking water as an easy wayt o get rid of hazardous waste from aluminum smelting (cold war) and fertilizer industries. Don’t even ask me about the scandalous data manipulation and terrible junk science that was used to show that fluoride does anything good for teeth. And don’t start me on how this has become a sacred cow among traditional physicians and dentists who are paid handsomely by the ADA to continue to support it, while state and Federal health agencies pressure public water systems who don’t fluoridate as if they are somehow endangering poor children. Oh, and anybody who dares to question this practice is a kook and those who support it are solid, upstanding citizens, or so I’m told…I could go on for hours. It was the early desire to get rid of this stuff that caused the formation of the Public Health Service, a precursor to EPA.
