You don't need to be wearing a tinfoil hat to accept that Lincoln was assassinated by a conspiracy - it's a historical fact. But these days the phrase "conspiracy theory" has become synonymous with labyrinthine plots and nebulous clues hidden in blown-up photos and arcane paintings. The simple suggestion of a conspiracy is often dismissed by the mainstream media as if inherently impossible. That's What They Want You to Think sorts through the most well-known theories-both historically accepted and summarily dismissed-to provide an overview of the real, the possible, and the paranoid. Conspiracies covered include Pearl Harbor, JFK, MLK, Lincoln, Princess Diana, John Lennon, Roswell, Freemasons, Watergate, 9/11 and more!
