Below is a link to a survey done in Canada claiming that many Canadians are falling victim to conspiracy theories; specifically the idea that Canadians think the government is evil and is out to get them.
In reality, these Canadians think the government is stupid, incompetent, and greedy.
When reading the survey, replace the term “conspiracy theory” with “government incompetence and greed” and you will be closer to the truth.

Although… those conspiracy “theories” are quite true.
