"It is also important for the State to inculcate in its subjects an aversion to any "conspiracy theory of history"; for a search for "conspiracies" means a search for motives and an attribution of responsibility for historical misdeeds… Furthermore, an attack on "conspiracy theories" means that the subjects will become more gullible in believing the "general welfare" reasons that are always put forth by the State for engaging in any of its despotic actions.

A "conspiracy theory" can unsettle the system by causing the public to doubt the State's ideological propaganda." …

Murray Rothbard, "The Anatomy of the State"
