On Conspiracy Theories

"Arguments, speculation—-conspiracy theories of all kind. The usual thing, right? No one is ever simply assassinated anymore. Ever since your Kennedys, it is always a matter of how many stories you can invent to explain the same body of facts. This is the great pleasure of conspiracy theory—not explanation, but narrative. It is like Scheherazade."

-- Kim Stanley Robinson, Green Mars
