Kirby Ferguson: This Is Not A Conspiracy Theory

With trust in governments low, and media fractured into an infinite number of contested opinions, conspiracy theories are an appealing way to understand the world.

They project human intentions onto complex events to explain why things happen and assign blame. But the better we come to understand the forces of nature, the closer we come to confronting perhaps the greatest fear of the conspiracy-minded: that no one is in control.

Kirby Ferguson is a New York-based writer, director and producer. He is the creator of the web series Everything Is A Remix and the forthcoming This Is Not A Conspiracy Theory.

The Pop Up Festival of Dangerous Ideas

One of Australia’s most provocative and inspiring events, The Festival of Dangerous Ideas, is coming to Melbourne – with five of its 2013 international guests – for one blockbuster Sunday that’ll make you think, reflect … and maybe even change your mind. These ideas question our assumptions about the way we live, demand that we recognise the potential for social change and challenge us to act.
